    Filmation heads for Skeletor & He-Man possible?

    After getting the Alcala head, do you think, we`ll get Filmation heads from He-Man & Skeletor?

    And would you want them?

    Are stylized Filmation heads more acceptable than stylized MYP heads?

    Yes, Filmation always beats MYP.

    So you want detail less heads? No thanks.

    Keep Filmation style out of MOTUC

    Nope, TG already said they wouldn't do that in one of the Q&A's.

    Style is different than design. They'll do stuff that's actually different as opposed to drawn with more detail.

    While He-Man's Filmation head would not be any different, Skeletor had a longer hood that covered his neck, and his jaw wasn't directly connected to the rest of his skull. It's different enough compared to the MOTUC head.

    I REALLY hope so since I want a Filmation styled He-Man head to happen more than ANYthing else in this line.

    Yes, to Mattel, I believe they are more acceptable. I'd be nice to get MYP heads, too, however it makes sense that we have a better chance of getting Filmation ones because Mattel just put out what I imagine to be a great deal of effort and money to be able to put things from Filmation into Classics, whereas they're clearly trying to distance MYP from Classics.

    Why would we need Filmation heads in this line? They would look realy off when on the bucks used for MOTUC. Now if they cancelled the MOTUC and did go with a Filmation line that would be good. but FIlmation heads for MOTUC? No!

    I don't understand the 'We don't want filmation heads'.
    Hello, we ALREADY Have them. Adora is a spitting image of her filmation Self. So is the mustached head of Bow. Swiftwind is also a straight filmation sculpt.
    So is Shadow Weaver! And so is Orko. And Cringer!

    So they HAVE to give us a Filmation He-man and Skeletor. It DOESN'T mean there will be less details. Look at Adora's hair. It's more detailed than filmation but it's the same hairstyle with the hooked bangs on both sides.

    They could do a long haired He-man with a face sculpt reminding us of the Filmation look. It doesn't have to be naive and cartoony. Again, I think everyone was pleased with Bow, Swiftwind or Orko!

    This is really a no-brainer.

    Those are filmation characters, so of course they'll look filmation. As they should. Much like MYP, filmation characters should look like their cartoon incarnations.

    He-Man and Skeletor are done in the classic style based on their toys and artwork. That's what the line is about. There should never be filmation or MYP He-Man or Skeletor heads in this line imo.

    I think that aside from Skeletor, 'straight' interpretations of Filmation heads would look horrible.

    The present He-Man head is good enough. I would say that it's also better than the 200X He-Man head and yet would also pass as a 'detailed' Filmation head. The same goes with other human characters in the line such as Man-At-Arms, etc which are detailed enough yet still look like the Filmation characters.

    That was the excellent thing about the earlier MOTUC figures - They grabbed elements from all eras in their sculpts making them true 'classics'. I wish they had continued with that direction for Snout Spout, Grizzlor and Clawful.

    Uh, no. He-Man's hair is terrible in Filmation but great in MYP.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I have ZERO interest in Filmation versions of characters we could have gotten already.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Honestly Id rather have the filmation heman and skeletor heads than the
    toy versions. So whether people like it or not most likely they are coming sooner or later. Not to mention there are 5 or more filmation characters and even more myp ones that need to be made too.

    filmation

    Hordak
    Heman
    Skeletor
    Leech
    Randor

    myp

    Heman
    Skeletor
    Randor
    Marlena
    Sorceress
    Teela
    Orko
    Whiplash
    Clawful
    King Hiss
    General

    Perfect (as usual) !!!

    I remember when you were one of the earlier members to post about that awful hole in She-Ra's forehead...
    Again you were perfect in your post !

    I actually dislike Cringer and Orko because they are so FILMation.

    They likely will make Filmation heads. Some of us just don't want them. I think the heads we've gotten for them are perfect. I want a cohesive style to the line.

    I dont think i will ever get the desire for a filmation he-man, pretty much the same version we already have and have always had.

    I guess I dont really understand what the difference would be between the Filmation and the current HM face that we have. Is there a toy reference, like photoshopped Filmation head so I can see what everyone means?

    Well, think of Adora! A filmation He-man would have longer hair and would not look asian. Something akin to the battle armor He-man staction.

    I think they should give the next He-Man and Skeletor variants Filmation inspired heads

    I'm as big a Filmation fan as can be and I honestly don't need Filmation inspired heads. I'm perfectly satisfied with the figures classic inspired heads.
