    I bet you're right and this would be the type of excuse Matty would use. It should not be valid though. Matty should contract a factory to produce a product to the expected standards of the prototype...

    I was talking about the transition from prototype to product as opposed to cartoon to prototype. I agree with you in that the Four Horsemen nailed the Filmation look. The prototype was perfection for...

    High Gloss skin
    Bizarre malnourished forearms
    Ugly joints
    Undercarriage showing
    Waspish womanly eyebrows

    What's with the shine. Eye brows are more womanly than the prototype. So glad I didn't sub. My craving of this figure has disappeared entirely. Mattel does it again. What a joke.

    Companies do well to move with times if they are to prosper these days. They should have released photos of the actual product before the sub, especially considering the faults of late. It was these...

    What's happened to the quality of the line?

    I come to this forum a few times each year to see what is going on with the line. I am shocked at the amount of issues and generally cheap looking figures that are tossed out by matty now. To my eyes...

    Straight out the pack the classics Lion-O seemed fine, but after a couple of poses the joints wouldnt hold the weight. He just collapsed like a drunk person. I had to use the superglue method on all...

    Detective Pyre, you are correct. Bandai are lacking somewhat, in many areas. Forgive my ignorance but I'm new to customising. Clear coat is something I will find at a model shop? What exactly is it?...

    My sword is floppy

    Viagra jokes aside. I have a sword that won't stay erect due to its own weight. Shhh, it's not a MOTU sword but another, lesser companies effort. Is there anything I can do, or dip it in, to make it...

    I've cleaned up the SDCC by removing and adding a more subtle wash all over and taking off anything that looked like it was done by a sharpie. I had to fix the loose hip using the superglue method. I...

    At present I have both, and the standard edition is SOOOO much better. Side by side, the sloppiness of the SDCC version is emphasized. If the standard came with the shiny swords, it would be perfect....

    I live in W/London. The most sickening for me is the thugs breaking into people's homes on the way and the residents having to escape out of back windows. In this country, if you stabbed an intruder...

    I agree, and so imagine my disappointment at having to have it shipped to the UK through eBay and costing best part of $100. :hmsad: You guys in the USA don't know how lucky you are.

    Pixel Dan,

    Would you say that if this figure didn't have the dodgy wash and sharpie effect, it would rate a lot higher? I know it is kind of hard to look past. I like the metallic armour of this...

    I agree with that! Holiday braids on He-Man- bad move. I like the idea of 2 heads. If the figures looked less like the 80's toys and incorporated more 200X, I wouldn't have been drawn back into MOTU...
