    Ah, yes Tower Tools. If the guy on the ground is Prince Adam, did anyone else wonder who the guy in the Tower Tools harness was? Did Faker finally get his colours 'right'? (And yes, I'd be happy with Classics releases of any of these.)

    It's He-Man. The art is portraying a transformation from Prince Adam to He-Man, which is why they both have their forearms raised, with Adam looking up. It's not meant to be taken literally.

    The tower tools are really cool for a kid's line where they'll be actively climbing 'n stuff like that, but it seems like a large setup for a line like this, and might cost a bit to get everything to work the same (and, if it didn't work the same, what's the point?). I'd go for things that would have the possibility of being cheaper and would be easy to just pose 'em with and stand.

    Q: What will he-man be climbing with this anyway. We have no playsets. I dont see a need for it. It will be way over priced.

    Same here. And I have to say, without meaning to offend anyone, I'm starting to find quite so many 'speculation threads' a bit boring and needless.

    I haven't liked these things in the 80's, let alone now...

    I agree with the others. Let's get some figures first. Then sell these to those who want them.

    I don't think so. Adam also has a He-Man shield. Looks like Adam and Clamp Champ are about to battle Ninjor, and Adam appears to be looking directly at Ninjor, so it's doubtful that he is about to transform into He-Man.

    This isn't the first time that Adam and He-Man have appearded in promotional art/packaging together.

    As for the power tools being brought into MOTUC, I would rather they didn't. The drill would make a nice bonus weapon, but I can live without the rest.

    Or possibly one of the many He-Men brought back from the past to help Adam out.

    On topic - not interested in a MOTUC release of Tower Tools.

    Is that why Adam is looking at Ninjor with a sword and shield in his hand and He-Man is looking up with nothing in his hands?

    No.

    It's an art screw up. He-Man and Prince Adam are both featured here as two seperate characters. An artists mistake, nothing more, nothing less.

    That art is awesome.

    It got deleted by the mods because the thread focused on more than one item for MOTUC. You can check them out on my site:

    No.

    It's an art screw up. He-Man and Prince Adam are both featured here as two seperate characters. An artists mistake, nothing more, nothing less.
    So... In the below art featuring the Wind Raider, are we to assume He-Man has a doppelganger with an identical ride or is the artist simply trying to convey that the Wind Raider has landed?

    Sorry guys, not meaning to offend, but I think you are mistaken on the Tower Tools art. I don't see where Prince Adam is about to square off with Ninjor or even looking directly at him. (line up the hair) Clamp Champ, yes. He and Ninjor look to be distracted with each other.

    It doesn't makes sense that He-Man would be in an identical pose to Prince Adam with his hand still clenched, unless it was conveying a transformation. His lack of a shield and sword can be explained away by saying that it's magic or that the artist simply didn't want them interfering with the Tower Tools art or both.

    Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

    I wouldn't be interested in those. Castle Greyskull and Snake Mountain, yes.
    I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!

    Anyways I wonder if people would buy this if it was made as a MotUC accessory pack. It might be good to have an accessory pack with these every 3 months - together with Cliff Climber, Scuba Attack, Bat Flight Pack, Eagle Flight Pack, Megalaser, Stilt Stalkers and Jet Sled. Maybe even Laser Bolt...

    Some would need to be proportioned right. Revisited by the 4HM For MOTUC I would definitely buy them!

    I'm sure the 4HM and TG will not only make sure that they work well, but that they look awesome. It would be cool if Extendar can fit on the Stilt Stalkers, for example! That is, if the decide to make them...
