    MOTUC Reissue He-Man Video Review!

    Hey guys, back with another MOTUC review! This time taking a look at the new Reissue He-Man figure, comparing him to the original release. Is it worth dropping your money on another He-Man? Check out the video to see!



    One thing I also want to mention that I forgot to in the video: the weapons are made of the same harder plastic that the first He-Man had. So, no soft weapons here!

    Any more questions, feel free to ask!

    Another great review, Dan. Thanks again for doing these. I do think I'll try to grab one of these reissues. My HM has wonky eyes, and I'd kinda like to have an extra to display as a disguised Faker.
    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

    My 1st release He-Man has "high hair." Your original release looks as though his hair line is the same as the re-release. Just more incentive for me to get this re-release. I have hated the red eyes since I first got him.

    Yeah, but that will just make him less popular with Teela.

    Has that been confirmed? I noticed that Pixel Dan didn't mention it in his review.

    Maybe it's just me, but it seemed like Dan was about to make a pot reference when discussing the "red eyes", but reigned himself in at the last second.

    Great review by the way!

    Dan,

    How are the joints? Many people complained of a loose ankle joint the first go around. Are your figure's joints tight?

    Can't wait for your review of Randor!

    If we could get some side-by-side comparison pics of the crotch piece that would be great!

    Yes indeed, he has a more agressive expression now, indeed Faker's eyebrows.

    The crotch piece is not smaller, it's a softer plastic than before. Don't you guys listen You just watched PD's review, he's mentioning it a couple of times, even shows it in his video.

    Great video. It seems to me that the rerelease is not as glossy as the original. I remember Matty made a comment about it too.

    I's still a great looking figure, but I actually like the original more. I think the lack of red around the eyes makes the face look plain. I also liked the gloss.

    Yep he's less glossy, as mentioned on mattycollector.com. I will buy 2 new He-Men but I'm not changing my loose He-Man on display. He's fine as he is. My one doesn't have so much red around the eyes and he ain't very glossy. There's only one original He-Man and that's the first one. Can't put another one on display and retire the first one

    I can't quite understand why some like the red eyes; looks like he is wasted or needs to take some Zanex.

    We don't mean the loin cloth, we're talking about the crotch piece underneath the loin cloth - the part the hip joints connect to.

    Just one other thing different about the packaging ( very small detail) on the bottom of the original release it says "1 figure and 4 accessories", now it says "1 figure and accessories". "The original" burst and contents description are the only package changes.

    Yeah I was gonna mention this too. I'm pretty sure I could tell from the video that the figure does in fact have the small crotch piece.

    Also, I am a bit curious about the tightness of the joints as well, especially the ankle joints.
    – No comment.

    Ok guys, here we go.

    - Yes, the crotch piece is smaller than before. It matches all of the released since this initial run of He-Man, Beastman, etc. I failed to mention this. I'll try to get pics and post asap.

    - The joints do seem tight. I also didn't have loose joints in my original, so I guess when I was comparing the articulation, it didn't even hit me to need to mention it. But the joints on mine are all tight. This could be something differs on a figure by figure basis, though. Hopefully, everyone gets tight joints.

    - Personally, I don't really notice a difference in the eyebrows. I looked at that before doing the review, and decided the difference wasn't big enough to point out. I'm looking at mine side by side right now, and still can't see too much of a difference. *shrugs shoulders* Maybe that's just me.

    Thanks guys!

    great review, but I wonder, are the eyebrows are slightly more arched in the reissue?

    edit: doh. question sort of answered. I think I notice a difference, but it doesn't really matter. my original has very loose joints, and that sort of annoys me. I'd rather have them too stiff and tight than too loose. Zodak was perfect. Same with Teela. I hope there's a trend to make the figures a bit more solid, and a bit less flimsy. That was what put me off Marvel Legends years ago.
