    I never really expected that. I always felt Adora would take the throne; she's a trained warrior, former force captain, former head of the Great Rebellion, and is a proven leader. Adam always struck me as being far more comfortable being the planet's greatest hero than being a ruler, and I think the former role suits him better.

    Regardless, I am going to try to pick up King He-Man (missed the BBTS pre-order, dang it!). The figure does look good, and actually tells a story all by himself with all the details put into him. The review here basically erased any doubts I might have had about getting him.

    The Strobo review was also informative, as it's the first time I've really seen the mirror actually being used, and just how reflective it really is. I actually recall the story that was his one and only appearance, and always thought he was a figure in development that just never got around to being made. Nice that he finally is making it into figure form.

    No construction issues to speak of. There might be some *slight* silver paint bleed on the side of his helmet, but it is minimal and will vary figure to figure.

    One of the things I've always disappointed with this OLDHE-MAN is his Non-Removable Cape ! A removable option would have helped us to avoid the "full blue" scheme on him. It would be interesting see if the cape part is actually glued with the armour OR it’s a one solid piece ! Veebs, Can you help on this ????

    Also, How close his skin tone matches with figures like King Grayskull & regular He-Man (I hope Pixel Dan reads this as well) ???

    As for Strobo, Liked everything about him (apart from his Orb-Stand solid piece issue) !!

    The cape and armor are one piece, I am afraid. Also, the skin tones are pretty close, the King He-Man plastic might be slightly more peach with fewer hints of brown than the other two, but it really is pretty close.

    I wasn't too fussed on King He-Man when he was announced, but he does look pretty cool. Would have been good to have his armour all worn like the sword is.

    Never liked Strobo. Sy-Klone and Zodac are two of the most boring figures for me and an amalgamation of the two is just... meh. Although I do like the ZoBlack head. If I hadn't gotten rid of my original ZoBlack I'd probably pick him up just for that.

    So, since I am a big fan of getting unique characters, I decided from the very beginning that I wanted to use the Zodak head included with Strobo for a custom of a Classicized version of his brother, Zeelahr. Yeah, he was just a plot device as snake food to fuel Zodak's hate of the Snake Men, but he makes for a decent figure. Plus, I am pretty sure Matty is not going to get around to making him.

    Pretty simple: Zodak body with Marzo legs and collar cut from his cape, the Strobo Zodak head and a cape from the MU Thor that came with the Frost Giant. No paint, no fuss.

    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Already started making a custom Zeelhar several days ago. All I need is the head & find out how to make his robes.

    anyone know how to make clothing like capes, cloths & armor for custom figures?

    Not everything in this world has to be symmetrical. It looks like he's making an intense face where the lip on one side of his face is lower than the other. Go stand in front of the mirror and make some intense faces. Eventually you'll come up with something similar. There's nothing to fix.
    It would be a different story if he WAS making an intense face. He has no expression! The droop makes his face look weak, like an old tired dog.

    Plus, now that we can see a side by side comparison to a REAL He-man head, my concerns of another shrunken-head are confirmed. Is Eric letting someone else sculpt these? First Jitsu and now King He-man? Ugh.

    No droopy lip on the prototype:


    So it's most probably not intentional. I guess something went during the molding process.

    Yeah, I don't like the stroke lip either, Plus, all they had to do was take the old He-Man head and sculpt a beard and mustache on it, then retool the hair to have a crown.... I would have preferred that to an all new head, I mean yeah he's older, but it's still He-Man, and it's very doubtful that he'd still be ripped but lose mass in his head....So the head is he least favorite thing of mine. They still managed though however deformed looking managed to make the NA head look like He-Man, but not this one?

    Plus the droop lip wasn't as bad on the prototype, it was barely noticeable, still there, but barely, now it's more exaggerated, and looks worse. If that was a battle scar, I'd be known as King Lipless....because I'd cut the damn thing off....
    Recent....Flutterina, NA Skeletor
    Coming....Rio Blast (sold already)
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    All of The Fwoosh First Look figures look great!
    King He-Man is no doubt going to take some getting used to, visually. There are some things I would have done differently- more detailed armor (something more akin to King Randor's), one less color, and something different for the crotch. The "H" that they did there bugs me almost as much as the asterick on the 2002 armor, for some reason. But I love his fur-trimmed hoodie cape, think the head sculpt is pretty cool, like that he uses the He-Ro boots as king, and love the accessories.
    It still stings knowing Strobo's gun got cut, but otherwise I think he's going to be an instant favorite once I have him in hand.
    And Snake Face looks badass... I'm not sure I would have changed a thing. I even like that he's more human from the waist down... he gets more and more snakish and gruesome from the waist up... don't know if that was intentional, but I dig it!

    The detail on SnakeFace is awesome! I Had no idea it was that unique. Does the texture cover his upper body as well? Do you have any pictures without the armor on?
