You know, I never did like that Randor.
When I was a kid collecting MOTU, I was into the figures for some time before the cartoon came along. A lot of He-Man's appeal was the wierdness of Eternia that was presented in the first four mini-comics. When the second wave of DC mini-comics came along, including the three-parter that was an actual comic book, and the Point Dread storybook, etc. and all of a sudden Eternia had a proper king... I dunno, something about it didn't gel with me and all of a sudden this barbaric monsterish out of space world with other dimensions and such took too much of a medieval bent, with the introduction of this elderly king and queen. I was like "But I thought whoever became king of Castle Grayskull ruled Eternia and the universe? What the hell?"... LOL.
It took a while for me to get used to the idea of a King in Eternia. And hoo-boy, when Filmation's cartoon came along and suddenly He-Man was this prince (King Randor's son?!?!)... I didn't really like "change" so much, you could say
But I digress... given the choice, give me the younger (or youngish) Randor as an action figure in the MOTUC line. What's this old guy going to do? Fall off my shelf and die? What kind of toy is that?
(Oh, and as an aside, I much prefer the MYP telling of Randor's role on the planet... as someone who was put in place by the Council Of Elders as- what I'm guessing is/was- Eternia's first king proper (not counting King Hssss, I guess).
