    Thanks for the pics. Man At Arms looks great but that sword is going straight into the trash. (Never liked the 200x sword.)

    Wow, what's with the terrible paint job on the blue arm band? I hope they all aren't like that.

    Really looking forward to MAA, so thank you for the pics! That said, I have to agree with Soulfly here. That arm job looks awful. Looks like there is paint bleeding on the belt/loincloth as well...

    The new power sword's too "silver" compared to every other paint app in this collection. He-Man looks really awkward holding it with his grey shield. They should have kept everything within the same color spectrum imo

    I miss the grumpy old man wide head of the original figure And his boots were more brown than charcoal grey... Oh well, whatcha gonna do .

    As for the power sword.... didn't care for it much either, I'll keep it, but I won't like it

    nice pics, I'll probably replace the 2002 power sword with this one. Hey Pixel Dan, does the 2002 mace fit in this new Man-at-Arms?

    I love this figure! I can't decide which head I like most (and I'm biased towards the mustache head usually).

    I love the sword. I'm sure lots of other ppl here will agree with me that anyone that doesn't want the 200x sword can pass it on to some of the other people here.

    I agree that it looks stupid with he-man because the colours mismatch though I'm going to be giving mine to Faker though so it's no worry. Faker's gonna pwn He-man and teach M@A a lesson in why voice recognition as the only security measure was a bad idea!


    The pain app in general doesn't look as good as I'd hoped. His head especially looks like it could use more work but i'm putting that down to the camera flash and assuming it looks better in person

    thanks for the photos Dan.

    Great pics!! Can't wait!

    The head without moustache looks like a different person than the moustache head. Shouldn't it be the same person just w/o facial hair? lol

    Cool for eternian soldier army builder figures though!

    I'd say MAA is my favorite out of everyone. I'm very impressed!

    Never been a fan of Man-At-Arms, and that 200X sword is super lame. This will be a really boring purchase for me. As much as I don't care for Man-At-Arms though, he is 100 times cooler than that He-Ro thing. I can't believe people actually like that figure. I definitely won't be purchasing him.

    Awesome! Thanks for the pics! Sad to see that his mace looks like it's made out of rubbery plastic...one big thing I liked about these is that the accessories are hard plastic, so I can pose them without the weapons drooping like the 200X figures. Oh well, at least it's thick.

    Otherwise, it all looks great! I love how shinny the 200X sword is! Shinny shinny shinny. Too bad it doesn't twist anymore, though. I loved that feature. Hope it still fits snug in 200v He-Man's hand, though, I may stick with the gold trimmed one for him anyway (since it still opens). Can't wait for this guy!

    Yeah the paint app is looking average. But at least he's got all the right appendages (still bitter over 4/4 screwed up Faker's).

    So we're getting a couple of the Castle grayskull weapons with MAA. I wonder who will be packaged with the others and if they make a rack available?

    I'm favouring the clean shaven head, but they both look great.

    According to the new bio's there's no reason King Grayskull would have the 200x sword, but I was curious to see him with it.

    Thanks for the great pics Dan. You lucky #$%^!
    I don't get my figures till 20 odd days after they go on sale and I almost feel like there's no point opening them since I've seen your video's months in advance.
    Of course I do open them and maybe play a little...

    Good pictures. I just don't like the new extra techno sword, but my figure will stay in box, so I don't care too much about it.

    VERY important question for you PixelDan! Is his arm armor one or two pieces, and if it's two can it fit (at least somewhat) on his right arm as well? I'm wondering because if it CAN, then if you buy two of him you could use the extra armor to make a Filmation version of him! Please let us know--and thank you!

    I second this question! Although I want to use it to make 200X prison guards to stand next to MOTUC Kobra Kahn

    M@A looks great I'll be buying two just like I did with Mer-man.I like the clean shaven face alot more since the other head doesnt look like M@A at all.

    The 2002 sword looks like it has chicken pox,I wish somebody would have stopped the horsemen from making all those rivets or whatever they are.Good thing they don't own a bedazzled machine. Other then the chicken poxs and the sword being way too shiny, it actually doesnt look too bad.Still wish we would have gotten an arm cannon.

    Nice work Dan. I'm jealous. It seems like I just finished taking photos of Hordak and you are already working on MAA and He-ro. I can't wait for your video review. Looks like MAA will be the first one that I buy more than three of. I think I will get 5 to have a couple of royal guards. My MAA will be with the mustache and the guards mustacheless and without arm and leg armor.

    As for the 200x sword, I kinda look forward to it. It looks more fun than the regular power sword. The handle is definitely longer so it is easier to hold it with two hands. I'm gonna have to add more to my He-man gallery for sure.

    I think am more excited about MAA than Hordak and he is not even a character I like much.

    Thanks Dan for the great pics!!!

    I love that all the armor is removable.

    I love that MAA comes with so much accesories and weapons (he is really a Man at Arms!!).

    I love both heads (Ill add a Eternian Royal Palace Guard to my collection).

    But I donīt like the sculpted belly in a dressed figure, so please 4H, due this line is a fully success, sculpt a lower torso abd part with no belly for dressed figures!!! PLEASE!!!

    PD: Why the boots arenīt orange/brown?

    Lol, Ok you can have mine too, I was gonna throw it out too!

    OOOOH! I just noticed the comparison pic, they have made this Sword more classic looking, and gotten rid of the horrible manga-esque 'Circuit' designs on the blade, Ok they just made me happy!!!! lol (still think the swords ugly, but now it looks like part of the same collection)
