    The expression on He-Man's face (before you click on the picture) looks scary in the first picture of the last row.

    Not a bad figure overall. Definitely the best of the He-Mans.

    Awesome! Perfect n every way. I disagree with the article tho. I think He-Man was / is an interesting looking character and this one is by far the best. So much cooler than 2002. That side by side comparison really shows how massive and precise the new figure is. Great article, 2 weeks left.

    i like everything but the drunkin pink around his eyes
    i mean he-man is the flagship of the line , in that review the guy says he hopes this is fixed latter on in line. i mean this is HE-MAN he should have great paint from get go (dont get me wrong i love everything else about him)
    i dont want he-man to be the tester to see what they need to fix , it looks like he-man was in drag and forgot to remove all his makeup, im just wondering how this got buy mattel into mass production like that?

    Two reviews now and no one showed how he looks when sitting down. That's what I keep waiting to see.

    Overall, not bad at all. They pretty much fixed everything they nerfed with the 200X line sculpt. That He-man looks worse and worse every time someone does a side by side pic with this new He-man. Almost makes me wish that one was never made, haha.

    Me too. I really want to know if the loincloth restricts his movement or not.

    He looks awesome! The MOTUC He-man is so much better than the skinny hunchback 200X He-man.

    That Card Front Pic looks pretty washed out and bland to me, even more so than the Matty Pic. I'm really not liking the look of the face in those pics either, especially around the eyes.

    While I'll admit to agreeing with the reviewer on He-Man being an "important but less than compelling" character and that I am a huge MOTU Villain/Creature Fan (at least more so than just the basic human characters), I at least think that He-Man should look good. So far, these Production pics aren't doing anything for me. I have to wonder what happened from Proto to Production. I loved the Proto Pics.

    I still have extremely high hopes for this line but I've not seen any pics of the actual production figures (especially He-Man) that I've been all that pleased with. Lately my faith has been somewhat shaken. These things are really going to have to be something in person to lay my fears to rest.

Perfectly proportioned and perfectly painted, in a word, Beautiful! The only thing that would improve them to Absolute Perfection would be if they had matching Skeletor Stactions to go with them. But that's just me!

    He-Man looks great. As I look at the picture of He-Man and Grayskull and then look at my Grayskull figure I can understand what VeeBee was saying in the review in regards to taking of photo of the figure. King Grayskull is not as shiney in person as in that photo so He-Man should look fine.

    I'm looking at the photo of the swords and I can still see the dimple on the Power Sword above the handle. I thought Toy Guru said that was a one off with Grayskull because of the last factory they used? Why do we still have a Power Sword with a fault? Oh well I guess we'll have to wait for Battle Armor He-Man for Mattel to do it properly

    That's the Best He-Man ever.
    It beats original vintage He-Man, NA He-Man and 200X He-Man as He-Man figures. That's what I meant.

    That's why I said "Best. He-Man. Figure. Ever." The Stactions and statues are a whole other ball game.

    I must politely disagree.
    When in doubt, we may consult an officially recognized authority.


    http://www.websters-online-dictionar...inition/Figure

    Per Webster's Online Dictionary:

    "4. A model of a bodily form (especially of a person); "he made a figure of Santa Claus"."

    "Articulation/posability" and/or "Action" are not required according to the definition. Thus, a Staction or Statue Is A Figure.

    Long Live MOTU!!!!

    Okay then, but the stactions can't be played with. So how about this-

    Best. He-Man. Toy. Ever.

    Better?

    Better?
    Again I must politely disagree while referring back to Webster's.

    http://www.websters-online-dictionar...efinition/Play

    "Verb 5. Be at play; be engaged in playful activity; amuse oneself in a way characteristic of children; "The kids were playing outside all day"; "I used to play with trucks as a little girl"."

    "Verb 11. : engage in recreational activities rather than work; occupy oneself in a diversion; "On weekends I play"; "The students all recreate alike"."

    "Noun 8. Play by children that is guided more by imagination than by fixed rules; "Freud believed in the utility of play to a small child"."

    "Noun 14. : gay or light-hearted recreational activity for diversion or amusement; "it was all done in play"; "their frolic in the surf threatened to become ugly"."


    http://www.websters-online-dictionar...definition/Toy

    "Noun 1. An artifact designed to be played with."

    "Noun 2. A nonfunctional replica of something else (frequently used as a modifier); "a toy stove"."

    Per the definitions above, a Staction or Statue may in fact be considered a "Toy" and may also be "Played" with.

    Again, "Articulation/Posability" and/or "Action Features" are not required to define whether or not an object is a "Toy" or whether an object can or cannot be "Played" with.

    The use of Imagination and the desire for Recreation, Diversion or Amusement do however appear to be prerequisites for "Toys" and "Play" in the context of this discussion. I humbly submit to you that an individual can engage in activity with a Staction or Statue while using Imagination and desiring Recreation, Diversion or Amusement thus qualifying a Staction or Statue as a "Toy" that can be "Played" with.

    Can a Staction be played with in a rough fashion?
    Probably not for very long, but it could be argued that neither could a great many other things that are properly referred to as "Action Figures" these days. Several Modern 200X MOTU Action Figures (among other things) come to mind based on many of the stories reported on the site during that time. I guess they just don't make 'em like they used to!

    Should Stactions be given to young childeren to play with?
    Probably not due to the choking hazards of small pieces and the fragility of the Stactions which could potentially result in injury to the child. However, it is theoretically possible for a child (young or old) to safely and responsibly play with a Staction.


    Thus, I still stand by my originally stated opinion which, I would like to note, was clearly stated to be only my personal preference and was stated while respectfully acknowledging the expressed opinion of MegaGearMax and anyone else who may share that view.

    Long Live MOTU!!!!

    Hmm, well to me the newer pictures in particular show the head to be a paler and grayer looking fleshtone compared to the plastic+airbrushing on the body.

    Which is also partially why the "maced" look stands out so much on this figure, since it's too great of a contrast of shades compared to the 4H's prototype where the highlight color on the eyes is much closer to the fleshtone.

    And I disagree.
    Right out of the package, with no alterations, the Classic He-Man is still the best version IMO.

    Now, once I've repainted my MOTUC version, then he WILL be the best.

    Very fast. Thanks for the link.

    I like how the MOTUC Zodac-head in comparison to Original Zodac-head are dead-on in the photo.

    The last pic is simply hilarious.

    Niiiiiice! Go Fwoosh!

    I dunno, I think his armor is removable... Looking closely at the straps on the back... Unless it's all glued back there, they are separate pieces.

    I hope the armour thing isn't correct and that he got a prototype.
    Unremovable armour would really s*ck.

    Zodac looks REALLY VERY NICE in those pics by the way.

    Sounds good. The armor has gotta be removable though, right? I don't see why it wouldn't be.

    Also, if they do end up making a black version I hope they just release him without a bio. I'm not liking the idea of separate characters or if they said there's a whole team of lookalikes. That's way too Green Lantern-ish.

    I think that's the whole idea. Zodac and Zodak are non-unique. Remember Zanthor and Zeehlar? And Zodak should have a bio. He's a way different character than Zodac.
