    See? Yes.

    Want? No.

    I'm not an NA hater I just don't want a billion versions of the same character. Had enough of that in 200X. Plus of all the He-Man varrienats he's pretty low on my want list. I honestly would not be bummed if he never came.

    Bow Discussion!

    Here's a look at Bow's 3 different looks:

    MOTUC:



    80's Bow:







    StyleGuide Bow:



    How does everyone feel about MOTUC Bow?

    Me:

    I love him, but I'm sad he doesn't come with a headband more like his toy (like the He-Ro one) instead of the kind of "W" design we got. I also wish he had unique boots, and not NA He-Man boots, and he's missing his chest armour.

    I don't understand his mustache belt with circle decal either. What the heck is that about? NA He-Man nor Bow had that in any media...

    Not sure if anyone has mentioned or seen but Bow has articulation above his wrists on his hands. Cool.

    Seriously, does anyone know why Bow has a mustache or door knocker on his belt buckle? I just haven't ever seen any designs for any characters that have that...

    Bow is so manly that even his belt has a mustache...
    I wonder if his bow is functional.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    I'm really happy with Bow overall. They did a great job with him!

    I don't know why but I really want this figure, at first I was like "oh a POP figure I might keep it, but will probably sell it" to now saying "I'm happy I finally got a sub and he'll be the first figure I get with it."

    Bow is what sold me to get the 2011 sub. He looks awesome!! I must admit I was slightly worried about how he would look, but I shouldn't have been. The 4 Horsemen knew what they were doing! I can't wait till Jan to get him.

    Bow. I am in love with bow. Perfect. Awesome. So very glad to have this character in same scale as other he-man figures. And I dont know how to say this, I hope the mods understand this, and if they edit it, I understand, but dont spank me... Anyone who says he looks anything other than masculine hetero man...well they're just mad. This dashing fellow is definately a lady killer on Etheria.

    Dont understand why the "mustache" belt is so troubling, especially considering what they got right. Agree boots are strange, now that you mention it, but BLEAH! they got it so right. (not to mention how excited I am that someone noticed NA He-Man. Cool find.)

    Cant wait to see him in shooting arrow mode, hence new wrist hand articulation Bow is more fitting to be the first in the line than anyone has admitted as yet.

    It's a bow... you know like the weapon Although a mustache belt would be equally badass for a guy like Bow

    After I read a few comments and mainly yours baronterror, I went back and observed the figure again, his bow has no string, which leads me to believe we're possibly getting an elastic string for pull back motion.... I just hope some one doesn't shoot their eye out or harm a pet.

    I just can't believe how great he looks. He's such a smart amalgamation of his various looks. I'm not all that familiar with the vintage Bow's. I only ever saw the one with the heart at a friend's house once. What is the more armored one? Was it a variant? Or did he come with extra armor?

    In any case, I think what 4H did is PERFECT. His head sculpt is amazing! The hair looks great. I love that he comes with a harp too!

    I like him very much. I don't mind that they made him to harvest parts for NA He-man.

    To me, allot of the POP designs need a little extra detail added to them in order to fit in the line. Both She-ra and Adora look too Filmation- they lack extra boot and arm guard details that could have really made them stand out.

    I'm very impressed with the MOTUC Bow. I'm interested to see how the new articulation (wrist and hip) will work in practice (and particularly whether the hips will be restricted in anyway), but in terms of design I think he looks pretty good.

    I don't mind the shared parts with NA He-Man. It's a reality that parts need to be shared and Bow still seems to come with a lot of unique "parts" not to mention the two heads. The belt buckle is a little odd (especially the horizontal bow on top of the circle), but I think it works well with the design. I do wish the "toy head" had a head-band/crown that looked more like He-Ro's design instead of a design that almost looks like it was just painted on.

    Cheers.

    Well, I think he looks great. Compared to the original, I think it's a BIG improvement.

    As far as the boots, I'm thinking they made them multifunctional, to fit on another figure down the line.

    I must admit that I wasn't really interested in getting any of the POP figures. I didn't have any of them when I was a kid except for the Horde, but by then, I was knida growing out of them.

    I'm happy Bow turned out so well.

    Is the heart removable? It looks like he comes with a red circle peg that you can put in it's place.

    That's what it looks like, and I think it's a good idea. May convince a few of the Bow haters to give him a chance.

    the first closeup view I got of his loose arrow made me think it had an odd shaped rope cutting head now that I see the style guide figure I realize it's heart shaped.

    But wait now look at the arrows in his quiver he's got diamond, spade and clubs shaped ones in there! Since when is Bow a card shark?

    He does have different wrist articulation. Probably done so he can get into arrow loading position.

    Bow is pretty much the Old Spice Guy of Masters of the Universe.
