    The Official MOTUC Ad Thread--Now Showing Hordak and Zodac

    Full page ads?!!! He-Man and Beast Man have one each. Nice!





    MYP Castle Grayskull is in the background of the He-Man ad. I think Beast Man has a MYP background too. This would be hot if this were a monthly thing in Toyfare...

    I wish they'd commisioned a new pic of Classic Grayskull for the background. MYP Grayskull is okay, but I think the Classic would have hit on more of the nostalgia-factor of the line.

    What he said.

    No offense to anyone, but I feel like the packaging, advertisements etc. should be based on classic MOTU or updated versions of the classic MOTU line.

    Cool!

    Is He-Man's face all glossy?

    But seriously, as long as sales are good it might just be a monthly (or at least frequent) thing.

    I agree completely. The vintage toy Castle Grayskull artwork was so much better than MYP's version.

    This sounds like a GREAT question for the next Q&A. I'd ask it but I already submitted one.

    That's pretty cool. I was looking for Toyfare at the book store the other night and could not find it! I haven't bought an issue of that in a long, long time.
    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

    I'd rather see the vintage Grayskull artwork or the version of Grayskull that was in the MVC Comics...that castle was awesome!
    It's great that Mattel is pushing these in ToyFair though! It certainly keeps the collector market in the know about this line.

    This issue has The Comedian from Watchmen on the cover.

    The pictures aren't new...they are the He-Man and Beastman pics with the backgrounds...only they have words.

    The first post has links...

    OMG!!! did it really go out like that.

    Magazine ads are fine, but it's still not enough advertising. I'd like to see the numbers of how many toyfare magazine's are purchased and then how many of those buyers are MOTU fan's. I just don't think Mattel is doing enough to push the figures. What Mattel really needs to do is a TV commercial.

    I'm torn about the Castle Grayskull artwork. I was half expecting something all together new - like the version they created for the con (my avatar) rather then either classic or 200x. Same with the Beastman background which is 200x as well.

    My hope though is that in using these 200x art that there is the potential for continuation of that toon still in someway...(I know, I'm delusional, lol).

    Saw the ads. I thought they were okay. Not crazy about the font they used. The Grayskull pic was nice though. I'm guessing they just used whatever Hi-Res art they had on hand.

    Thanks for those linksl! Hope those will help spread the word!

    I agree on using the Classic Grayskull . . . IMO the *only* CG, really.

    If Mattel doesn't want to use the (awesome) Classic artwork of CG, then they do have other options *coughcoughhirenatebaerschcoughcough*

    Yeah, I just got the issue and this is kind of blowing my mind. Why on Eternia would they airbrush the articulation out when that's kinda the MAIN point of this line, to say "HEY! Look everybody! These new MOTU figures have more articulation than ANY He-Man figure EVER BEFORE!"

    They look like statues...I'm really afraid people might look at this and think they're doing more stactions but in the classic style.

    They do look a little odd with no articulation points showing, but the ad does say "new fully detailed highly articulated figure" right above him, so hopefully people realize these are (awesome) action figures.

    It's also because they photographed the 4H's prototype, and their in-house casts always have much more seamless-looking articulation than can ever be achieved by the factories.
