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

    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)

    The only thing a don't like with the new sword is the dark "bolts" at the top of the sword. I think they should have been left silver. Other than that though, the sword looks great. It is an improvement over the original 2002 design.

    Thanks for the pics, he looks amazing. Yet again another character finally looking how they were always meant to look in my eyes.
    The moustached head is staying in the box, his real head has finally been created properly.

    Quick question, are you able to tilt his head downward at all so his face shield only shows his eyes?

    At first I was certain that I'd prefer the mustached Duncan, but now I don't know... it seems like the mustache needs to be bushier or something (more like a Magnum PI mustache)! But he looks like a great figure overall! Also, thanks Pixel Dan for the detailed pictures.

    i LOVE that 2002 power sword. two things i love about it

    1. it doesnt have that STUPID spinning/twisting gimmick

    2. that it has been subtly redesigned to include the original power sword's hilt shape on the blade. very cool little easter egg, especially since it was supposed to be created by MAA
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    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

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

    The non-mustache head is so much better.

    The new sculpt of the 2002 sword looks much better.

    Well, looking at the pics. I can really say that 200X sword looks better with Grayskull than with He-man.

    Still hates the look of it but it sure's a lot better than the actual 200X version.

    Now about MAA, he seemed bland somehow. Even with all the extra accesories and a head. Guess he's not really my most fave but still getting 4 of him at least!

    The mustache-less head does look better. Guess I know which head to display him with!

    Yeah its a great Review, but I still look forward to Pixel Dans more!
    Hes such a cool figure, I ADORE the paint apps on the armor! and the 200X sword has been retro fitted perfectly, They got rid of the atrocious Anime- Circuit design on the blade and its made a huge difference for the better! Brilliant!

    and while everyones over there, have a look at Fwooshs main page, they have the 4H female figures on there, WOW!!! if thats where they can take POP then Im more than excited!

    Man-At-Arms looks amazing. Seeing the comparison pics.... I gotta say I think he blows the other two versions out of the water (though I do like both) and is such a great meld of the two. I can't wait to get him.

    He even looks good on he Dragon Walker!

    A question Pix Dan, out of the new MOTUC 200x sword and the old 200x sword, which do you think is better. I prefer the one from the 200x cartoon so I'm gonna try to sculpt my own.
