    The "Ultimate" Version Of Masters Of The Universe Characters!

    Most of us have an opinion as to what the best interpretations of the Masters Of The Universe characters are. Some of us like certain aspects of a character's portrayal from more than 1 source. I thought it would be fun to break down some of the characters' traits where you cite the source that you feel did it best. All of these parts would make the "ULTIMATE" MOTU character for you.

    Let's start with the main man himself...

    1) HE-MAN



    OVERALL DESIGN:

    HAIR:

    FACE:

    SWORD:

    ARMOR:

    VOICE/ACTING:

    PERSONALITY:

    Thanks! All it really means is that I send too much time on this site. When I'm online, if it's not naked ladies, it's He-Man.

    Wait, that didn't sound right.

    Do you mean pre-Filmation mini-comics before Prince Adam was involved or later mini-comics where the continuity was closer to what Filmation was doing?

    Yeah definitely Prince Adam. I didn't know what to choose for origin/history. Filmation didn't give much of one except for in the opening intro. So it's either Filmation or later mini comics.

    As you might have guessed, my favorite He-Man of all time is the more barbaric version from 1982-83. Here's a gem: "Skeletor, you demon! The Goddess had best be unharmed -- or my axe will drink deep of your foul blood! This I swear!"

    Another nifty thread, Mr. Shakoti! (You know I'm a fan.)

    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

    1) HE-MAN

    OVERALL DESIGN: Vintage Toy (it's what started it all and has a better face & hair, imo, than MOTUC)

    HAIR: Vintage Toy (a lot of the boxart has it too long, MOTUC looks like a wig, and Filmation makes him look like Prince Valiant)

    FACE: Filmation (it has the perfect mix of heroic, warm, and tough)

    SWORD: MOTUC (the 2 colors add a little to it)

    ARMOR: MOTUC (I like the size & design of his "cross" on the vintage toy the best and MOTUC has a little more detail than it does)

    VOICE/ACTING: Filmation (not only my favorite He-Man, my favorite heroic animated voice work of all time)

    PERSONALITY: Filmation (that's He-Man to me; heroic, capable of kindness but still tough, & he doesn't shy away from a funny one-liner)

    ORIGIN/HISTORY(or lack there of): Filmation (I want Prince Adam in my canon, MYP took away a lot of the magic, and MOTUC is unnecessarily complex)

    You know what? From now on, I'm just going to wait for MGM to post his answers to questions like these, because it seems that we are truly sharing a brain!

    I agree with everything that he's said here.

    Great post, bro!

    Are we talking about design aspect or toy? If we mean design, this is my favorite design (it is easier than explaining):



    If you mean toy, then the MOTUC for everything but the hair, which goes to the 2002/this version.

    Personality - 2002
    Sword - 2002 (it is just way more intricate than the basic Filmaton/original toy one)
    Voice - Cam Clark
    Origin/History - 2002

    To me, the 2002 stuff is the definitive version for story telling and most of the designs. I do prefer Man-At-Arms' original toy design and MOTUC design best though, but of course the mustache is who he is.

    OVERALL DESIGN: Vintage Figure

    HAIR: Vintage Figure

    FACE: Vintage Figure

    SWORD: MOTUC

    ARMOR: MOTUC

    VOICE/ACTING: Filmation (Even though I'm not the biggest fan of the Filmation show, Erwin is, and always will be, the Voice. Hands down!!)

    PERSONALITY: Mini Comics... but not all of them. In the early minis(which are my favorites) he was kind of a big dumb brute, and I didn't always like that. The later mini's found a perfect balance of Filmation's cheesiness, and the early comic's heroic warriorness. lol. if that makes sence.

    ORIGIN/HISTORY(or lack there of): Mini Comics...both pre Filmation, and post.
