    MOTUC Dare, Son of He-Man Speculation

    I´ve always been fascinated about this character, because is a great unknown, but have great possibilities. I see him like a "future He-man" that lives in a world where Skeletor is the overlord of Eternia.

    Talking about a possible release, a Dare figure can be based on the standard He-man body and fits ok? Anyway, he must include Craven, his bird pet.

    Other fact is that "He-Ro" is already the name of "the Wizard most powerful in the Universe" so you can suggest new names for the character. Because he is a future He-man, "He-Rald" fits to me, in order to continue the "He" tradition, but more suggestions are welcome.

    I don't see this happening. From what I understand, the whole concept was created by by Lou Scheimer and DIC. I don't think Mattel had any input or ownership of the new characters.

    I think it'd be cool, but the possibility of it seems nil.

    We've talked about this before, some people like it, some don't. I for one hate the entire concept, and I hope it never becomes more than what it is- a bad idea that never saw the light of day.

    Definately cool. I also thought its just a Lou Scheimer idea, nothing more, its only a concept. I like the nam Dare, He-Rald sounds horrible.

    In keeping with the "He" theme, I propose his name to be:

    How-Dare-He

    I would love this cause i am a fan of the character.


    i am afraid the closest we would see is a custom though, cause of the previous stated no connections with mattel.

    DARE, SON OF HEMAN in MOTUC

    The design of Dare, son of He-Man has been revealed in the MOTUC minicomic "Final Battle".

    Do you like that the armor is just a repaint of the NA He-man figure?

    I would hope that if we ever get a Dare figure, it would come with an alternate armor piece similar to the Filmation one we are all familiar with. I'm okay with the darker hair and blue NA pants, but this guy needs to come with at least one thing that would tie him to the concept we all have seen for years.

    Like Paragraff, I'd be ok with it if he came with other armor options. As he stand in the comic panel, I am not a fan. Which is sad because he was in my top wants for future figures. If he is just a NA Daddy repaint, there's really no draw. It isn't a new figure design. It is a used character design with a new name.

    I actually love the look, though I would be thrilled with an additional "barbarian" harness. Of course, to that end, I can easily put a spare He-Man harness to work.
    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

    I prefer a version close to the original designs.





    Why the hair has been changed to brown? Dare must be blonde...

    Yeah, maybe the harness the Goddess came with! Honestly, I'd rather see something completely new, just for Dare. I thought we would be seeing something similar to the design that Mattel gave DC for He-Man's new armor. I erroneously thought there was an ulterior motive behind it and its futuristic look. That's what I get for allowing my mind to wander.

    I think it is just to reinforce the new canon with him as the son of He-Man and Teela, rather than She-Ra and Sea Hawk like the original. I think they are just trying to draw distinctions between the two versions. Just an assumption, of course. ...Or, hey! Maybe he changes his hair color just like his mother!

    Actually, I'd be thrilled with the armor he is wearing above on the lion, IF they changed the shape to that of Carnivus'. That armor looks to much like He-Man's era, but I love the style and colors.

    Do you like that the armor is just a repaint of the NA He-man figure?
    Not really, no. I dislike the space age over the barbarian age in MOTU any way, and didn't care for seeing more blue pants or the same NA armor on Dare. The silver and red hair make him look like Kayo actually, no one else feels that?

    I know Scott really likes the NA armor angle because he's brought up that it was called the Dare armor before (I take that to mean he was excited about it), but I'm just not interested in NA much and this is more of what I wasn't interested in to begin with. I'd rather see an era or brand focused on Vikor than this new He-Ro. It might at least be nice if this He-Ro had a slimmer buck and so would be visually more distinct from He-Man, but the whole point of the armor is that it's reused from NA He-MAn, so to me this is just a no win. Even if he has a more unique armor under the NA covering, he's still got the Kayo color scheme. I guess I'll have to see more options to know if I'd like it.

    That said, I like his design better than Skeleteen's which looks less like a repaint but not to any great benefit.

    And in either case, no I wouldn't quit subbing if one or both were revealed. However I'd be louder about bringing up figures I want more.

    At first, I didn't like that the NA design looked like a quick kitbash/repaint but after thinking about it, I don't mind if that's the design for Dare. The NA armor is called Dare armor, after all, not He-Ro armor. It would be cool if He-Ro II looks different and more like the Filmation version. The figure could then come with an extra silver Dare armor and Dare head so that we can convert NA He-Man into Dare and still have a more barbarian-like He-Ro!

    There was a pic from the mini-comic in the Unnamed One arrival thread but it looks like any pics or scans are against the rules and were taken down now.

    Basically, imagine NA He-Man with light reddish/brown hair, silver space armor, Vykron's wrist bracers, Adora or Captain Glenn's holstered pistol, the silver Power Sword from Castle Grayskull, and furry boots. It's actually an easy kitbash to assemble.

    Once I get the mini-comic, I may do some new sketches of Dare based on this new NA-inspired design!

    OMG, you're totally right! Never saw that.



    What I think is pretty ridiculous is that Mattel goes on about how the NA figures don't sell well as it is...so instead of making He-Ro II (Dare) Barbarian like we all know him, they're probably going to make him a repaint of a variant NA figure. Let that sink in for a minute...

    Where's the logic there?

    NA is the most hated era of MOTU (except for maybe the new DC comics and the bios). Mattel is fashioning He-Ro II as an NA character, which will make him sell fewer day-of sale units than if he was a Barbarian. It's totally NA He-Man vs Vikor sales-wise. I just don't get it. *shrugs* Before anyone attacks me, I just want to state I love NA and have watched the series in full on DVD twice so far.

    I honestly think the only reason they're going with the completely unknown version of Dare (who is a repaint), is because that's what Scott wants to do and it's cheaper to make. He'll basically sell as well as any other figure overall because we're all locked into subscriptions and he'll be forced upon us. I have always loved He-Ro II (Dare). When I first read the "He-Ro: Son of He-Man" bible, I thought it was SO cool and a great way to continue the story in the future (this could take place AFTER New Adventures). Most people thought it was interesting, but glad it didn't happen.

    That being said, if He-Ro II is just going to be a New Adventures of He-Man repaint, count me out. I would much rather have another unique character I've been waiting 25+ years for that will look as they should. I don't want another Star Sisters situation where they make the exact opposite of what we've been asking for in explicit detail WITH pictures and polls, for YEARS! The other figure I worry about (besides He-Ro II/Dare), is Veena. I want her how she looked in the Mike Young Productions cartoon. In the MOTUC mini-comic, she's white, orange and blue. From the answer TG gave after the comic image was shown, it sounds like they're giving her that colour scheme if she gets a figure, which really sucks. I don't want that at all.

    Guys while i was looking at Axel Gimenez's DeviantArt gallery i found this:

    http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs70/i/20...ez-d5l05qy.jpg

    I believe it could work much better as a design for Dare/He-Ro II, in comparison with what we already saw in the mini comic. What you think?

    I am not overly impressed with Dare's design. I was hoping for something more original.
