    Tung Lashor could have been better. He's a little bland. It would have worked on a smaller figure but the size shows up his lack of detail.

    Khan had a great look but I don't like him being so skinny. He was one of my top 3 or 4 favourites from when i was little, and having him go from jacked to wimp was hard to swallow.

    Roboto's feet were just too big and made the rest of him look puny.

    On the whole I love the line and even the figures i'm nopt 100% convinced by are still good toys. For me it's more to do with nostalgia and personal taste.

    The Sorceress: I was dissapointed with the Sorceress. A totally different character now. They've changed her look completely. Baaah!

    Tung Lashor: he was the only one of the original snake-men I ever liked, but now he hasn't got that poison-frog look anymore.

    Rio Blast: What's with the huge gun-barrel of an arm?

    Also dissapointed that several figures don't have theire original colours. Mattels fault, not The 4 horsemen. And Zodac's change of colour, the tattoos and his removable helmet stinks.

    To me, the only new designs that didn't appeal to me were Battle Cat and Panthor. I also did not like the new Castle Greyskull look, either. Everything else was fabulous.

    I'll revive this old thread rather than starting a new one.

    I will give two character redesigns - one I like and one I do not.

    The first is Zodak. Horrible representation of the character, IMO. Filmation Zodac was way better. Please do not get technical and argue that he is a completely different character


    The redesign I really like is Triclops. Filmation made Triklops a complete buffoon. I thought he was pretty cool in this series. He had a brain and could invent things.

    I agree. Tri-clops really shined. Both as a figure and as a MYP character. I know some don't love the idea, but he makes a great tech master in my opinion.
    Bad redesigns? Don't entirely love Teela's odd hair, but otherwise 4H hit multiple home runs.

    I'm fine with Teela. Orko really grew on me, but Adam... not so much.

    All 200X updates are very cool to me and I love them all, but they're not perfect...

    Kick-ass designs with minor flaws:

    Whiplash, Two Bad and few others should have been bigger, but otherwise they're perfect..
    Orko should have been smaller..
    Couple more paint ops/shading would be cool across the board..
    Couple of nitpicks here and there, but nothing major that ruins the figure for me (they should have hide the "plungers" on figures' backs a little better, some stylistic choices, like Teela is too "manga", Fisto should have had the sword and such)..

    Missed opportunities/ruined by bad choices:

    King Hssss - ruined by action feature and bad proportions, otherwise very cool design itself...
    Zodak - too pre-posed and has weird proportions, but again, awesome design...
    King Randor staction - too random, he could be any fantasy character from Ned Stark to King Arthur, they should have included iconic cross on his chest armor...
    Battle Armor He-Man staction - too plain, almost like they reused vintage Battle Armor..

    Bad:

    He-Man - it's funny how every 200X He-Man variant is better than regular He-Man.. Even those variants that are essentially repaints with different armor are somehow better than regular He-Man..
    I am more than MAN..., more than LIFE..., I AM A GOD!!! And now.. you.. will.. kneel... KNEEL!!!!

    Buzz-Off was impossible to stand on his own. Had to lean him until I got stands.

    Hated the ankle pouches on the female characters.

    I think the 4H have done an amazing job but like everything in life there is nothing perfect.
    There are several 200x redesigns that I don't like that much.

    Here is my list:

    Tung Lashor: I feel like he is a different character, I don't feel he is the same character from the 80s. I love his 80s version but the 200x doesn't look like the classic at all.

    Sorceress: The 200x is not the Sorceress IMHO.
    I hate the egyptian look.

    King Hiss: Though this is not the fault of the 4H, I don't like the new Hiss.

    Whiplash: Another redesign that doen't feel like the 80s version. Too fat, and looks dumb.

    Clamp Champ: I don't hate the new design in this particular case but I think he doesn't look that cool. I prefer the first Clamp Champ we saw a few years back at the Comic Con that used Fisto parts.

    He-Man: That figure we got is not He-Man.

    So how about you ?, which 200x redesigns you don't like? or would like to change something about it?
    I love all the 200X redesigns for various reasons and to different degrees, as I feel they breathed new life into all the characters. Visually, the 200X era characters have no negatives, and some of those you have listed are my absolute favorites, especially Tung Lashor and Whiplash whose body types broke the mold for the figures.

    While the toy version of Whiplash had more defined scales/abs which was an improvement over the cartoon version, all 200X had to offer was wonderful. Both cartoon and toy versions of every 200X character brought so much to the brand.

    I don't like any of it. The designs are too busy, too many parts/pieces on them. It has the opposite effect making the characters look rather dull and generic. Maybe it's just how the animators rendered them, I think that they goofed on all the designs for 200X.

    I gotta give Mekaneck thumbs up after getting the figure in hand. I always found the vintage figure plain and the character incredibly dull in Filmation.

    Granted, there isn't a big difference and the two versions are more similar than different, but I just think he looks a little better and was used a bit more effectively in the newer series.
