    Amen to all of those! I mean come on! Granymyr is green on the freaking map!!!
    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

    Basically seven more Pre-Filmation figures to go.
    I'd hope that if we get the Caucasian Stratos, he gets Beastman feet and not those horrible sock feet.

    Saying Filmation is superior to Alcala's art is akin to picking a McDonald's Dollar Menu burger over a steak dinner.

    I suppose there truly is no accounting for taste!!!

    Some people would rather watch a show than read the book. Or were introduced to the show or movie first, before the book.

    Alot of John Carter watchers are learning that there's a distinction between the book and movie...Walking Dead too. Hell, you can say that about almost anything.

    Y'know, the Filmation era has been so ingrained in my head that I almost forgot about the cool, savage world of Eternia that the comics portrayed. As a kid, I loved the original four storybooks, and thumbed through every mini-comic I got, but I mostly remember the cool artwork and didn't really piece together the stories so well. I used my imagination a lot to create my own stories until the Filmation cartoon showed up to bring the world of Eternia to life. Looking back on the cartoon series today, I can see how cheesy it was but, I have to admit, it provided the soundtrack of MOTU in my mind. Whenever I think of He-Man, I can't help but hear the sounds, voices, and music from the Filmation cartoons!

    Thanks to this thread, though, I've gone back to the mini-comics and realized how awesome they were. I still have He-Man and the Power Sword and several other mini-comics. I wish I also had the other 3 original storybooks, the Alcala artwork was epic, but I just noticed last night that, within my "random" collection of mini-comics, I actually have all 7 issues from Series 2! The dark and savage stories paint a more interesting picture of Eternia. I'm glad to see the comics archived here, they're great to read again and make me wish that there was a trade paperback collection of them!

    I was introduced as a kid through the show and that was my basis for all things MOTU. I could enjoy other versions, such as the movie, but didn't care much for the weird stories of the comics.

    However, as an adult, the early minicomics are the only incarnation of He-man I actually really like. Series 1 and 2, along with the DC Comics are it for me. Actually, I should say perhaps more specifically that those are the major influence for my own MOTUverse; the ever popular "In my canon...".

    Spot on analogy!!!

    I like Filmation and what it was able to accomplish with its notorious frugality, but Leonardo Da Vinci, IT WASN'T.

    Exactly.
    Awwww...I was so expecting Oo-Larr to be this year's exclusive too. Hopefully, we might still see him this year. Demo-Man gave us an Alcala Skeletor head last year, Oo-Larr could give fans an Alcala He-Man head THIS holiday season.

    Scott shot that down. No Alcala He-Man for the 30th in 2012. I was really disappointed. The best we can hope for is early 2013.

    I broke down and got a Demo Man during the March sale. Now that I have the Alcala head, I love it. My regular Skeletor head has now been retired, and I really liked that head!
    I even like the greenish look, which I thought was a horrible mistake at first. Perfect all around--THAT is the Skeletor I grew up with. Alcala Skeletor is the best look and definitive version imo.

    Damn...I never saw that post! Maybe Oo-Larr in later 2013. Since Vykron will be on sale at SDCC, I can't see Oo-Larr making an SDCC appearance as an early 2013 figure.

    I broke down and got a Demo Man during the March sale. Now that I have the Alcala head, I love it. My regular Skeletor head has now been retired, and I really liked that head!

    Wow. I'm surprised that YOU didn't get a Demo-Man for that purpose. I too, didn't like the green at first, but that head is so awesome that I don't care about the greenish tint anymore. My normal Skeletor headed figure is resting in a bin too.

    Oo-Larr HAS to come with something extra right? I mean, there's really not that much too him...

    Existing Tooling
    Shoulders, upper arms, upper legs, torso - He-Man
    Calves - Demo Man

    New Tooling
    Forearms, feet, trunks, spear, head, hair

    My hope is for an "Ultimate Oo-Larr" that comes with He-Man's gear so he could become He-Man...

    Harness
    Attachable belt
    Boots (one with a slot for a removable dagger)
    Boot dagger
    Bracers
    Axe
    Shield

    If we don't get more weapons or accessories, then maybe we could get another Alcala He-Man head. We could get a calm Alcala head and a determined or grimacing Alcala head.




    Or howabout a blonde Teela head? Give her a bigger ponytail, to differentiate her from red haired Teela.
