    He-Man & MOTU - Filmation He-Man Thread !

    Since I Haven't Seen One, This Will Be The Unified Thread For All Filmation He-Man Based Discussions !


    Since people looking for the cartoon accurate figures, why not Mattel make furry shorts instead of 200X style loincloths ? I think they did an awesome job on NA Skeletor as far the shorts are concerned !

    I also want see Filmation He-Man getting more vibrant maroon on his trunks & boots. And, Filmation accurate Power Sword !


    Your Thoughts ?

    I totally agree. Does he really have the loincloth instead of the briefs?

    lol, I never really noticed that before, but yeah...the toon rendering does appear to give him furry shorts/briefs, rather than a loincloth. WoAoaAhhh! Are loincloths the more formal wear, and these furry briefs are what they wear underneath? Time to go back and study He-Man's crotch a bit closer...

    Yeah, I don't know what the Four Horsemen have against giving He-Man his properly colored boots and loin cloth, whether the source is the vintage toy or Filmation. They always seem to feel the need to make it several shades darker, to the point where it approaches a brown color

    Good point about the briefs thing. If the idea is toon accuracy, it would seem like a good idea to go that direction

    I agree, seems He-Man could really use some color tweaks. Man oh man I love the bold vibrant colors on these figures, I'd hate for He-Man to seem dulled down in comparison.

    Please Mattel, don't dull down those poppin' colors!

    I think translating He-Mans animated face design into a 3D action figure is a pretty tough think to do. At least based on many of the Filmation like things that have come out in the past few years. Once again I think the 4 Horsemen show how they are master toy designers and have nailed it! I do hope the vibrant colors stay, as this is a line that should not get toned down colors for sure.

    now, while I have a few issues with the sub-line regarding sculpt, I have to say that these NEED the Vibrant colors in order to work properly as Filmation versions."

    That Brown needs to be more Reddish.

    The sword needs to be redone and painted in a 1 tone of Silver.

    If they want He-man to look more Filmation-ish they should make his skin tan too.

    If the Loincloth, Belt, boots and Bracers are painted in brighter colors, He-Man's skin would look darker. This would allow for parts swapping with MOTUC He-Man variants. Some people would like to mix and match. Can't deny them that pleasure. (Also helps customizers.)

    The only thing that's missing is the Filmation accurate power sword! Classics Prince Adam with FILMATION SWORD 03.jpg

    That makes 2 of us. On a side note.
    Can we get the end of episode moral/value talk from Filmation cartoon on the back of these Cardbacks?

    Hi guys,

    I really looking forward to the filmation sub! Cant really tell how much i wished that to come true.

    Now, what i just fell a little bit off is the mouth of he-man.
    I order of accurate, I never see Filmation He-man has such pointed mouth.

    heman.jpg

    Its not that terrible but that makes him not 100% Filmatiolook somehow!

    Whatīs your opionen on that ?

    I agree there's something off with the mouth. I actually thought the mouth was the hardest part to sculpt on my custom head but in the end I think it turned out ok(see pic). Extremely hard to turn a 2d cartoon character(especially humans) into a real 3d figure.


    Tweaked the mouth just a bit:

    ^^Ehhh, it's all in the cheekbones and chin anyway, right?

    I like the mouth on both heads above. Nothing stood out to me as amiss on the 4HM head though. Maybe the feature will be softened on final product?

    Please please leave the filmation figures alone. They are perfect. No further tinkering is needed. Channel all your tinkering for motuc and leave filmation as is
