    Mattel! We want a Filmation accurate Power Sword!

    The one you gave us with Flogg is wrong! The dimensions are off. And the pictures of Filmation accurate He-Man coming next year disappointingly show him still brandishing this false sword! We demand one that is identical to the iconic version shown in the classic Filmation cartoon!

    Show your support guys! It's only a minor tweak to greatness!!

    Can someone post a picture/photo that illustrates the issue here?

    these are the swords we've gotten so far, the standard sword and the one from Flogg

    this is the proper Filmation power sword

    the shape of both MOTUC versions is not exact, not to mention that the color should be solid! the center portion should also have the same raised line as the rest of the blade.

    Yeah, that version that came with Flogg was messed up. Looks like a bad custom.

    The Flogg version is asymmetrical and a bit too wide. I can live with the width, but that cockeyed hilt has to go.

    Yes, I would like to get a proper looking Filmation sword. Honestly, the one that came with Adora and She-ra is about perfect. They just need to make a version of that which doesn't have the jewel (or the spot where the jewel goes), and a modified handle to fit properly in He-Man's hand.

    I never cared for the filmation sword. I think Flogg's sword is perfect MOTUC sword. Yes I admit that specifically it is not completely accurate, but it does what it needs to do, and with a better style than it's inspiration. So I am fine.

    I would rather a MOTUC Powersword with a jewel so that She Ra has a true TRUE twin of He Man's sword. Still waiting on that, or for someone to sell me a sword of protection so I can make my own custom.

    Besides being inaccurate to the source material, the Flogg sword also looks sloppy in the execution. The rounded bits are asymmetrically placed.

    Yeah, I think they can do better. It should match this pic or the close up from Secret of the Sword. And go ahead and make a She-Ra version in the same size, too. The larger handle fits in her hand just fine.

    Always bugged me as a kid that the FILMation sword looked different than the toy I had at home, more so than the differences in the appearances of the characters even. I always wondered why they couldn't have made it look more like the toy.

    Yes please! I'd like it to be exactly like She-Ra's, even the size, JUST like it was in the show (I'm sure they could make the handle a little bigger).

    I think it was cheaper to animate with tiny gaps between blade and guard that could just be colored in gray without it looking weird.

    Classics Prince Adam with FILMATION SWORD 01.jpg Classics Prince Adam with FILMATION SWORD 02.jpg Classics Prince Adam with FILMATION SWORD 03.jpg This is how the FILMATION POWER SWORD accessory should look when the line officially releases. Also please no more two tone swords. The FILMATION sword was completely silver ,and not silver and gray. If they get that right then it will be perfect.

    I agree that He-Man's Filmation sword needs to be resculpted. It's one of the single biggest iconic images in MOTU fandom!

    As usual, when it comes to this issue: I don't honestly care for it, BUT...I have my favorite NA Power Sword, a remake of the awesome 200X Power Sword, and they revealed that Dare comes with the Alcala Power Sword. It's only fair that they resculpt the Filmation Power Sword and have that version of He-Man come with it, if there's still time. I mean, everything on those figures are crazy Filmation accurate - including Skeletor's Havoc Staff. He-Man really needs the accurate Power Sword.

    It has also aggravated me, since the beginning of the MOTUC line, that each sword has had two different shades of gray! Why!?

    I support this. The "Filmation" sword we have looks "inspired" by the cartoon, not cartoon accurate.

    Skeletor's havoc staff is not a match. Go look at the cartoon again. Look at the center top of it and images from the cartoon.
