    Support for a Vintage He-Man Head Pack!!

    I love the trend Mattel started with the 200x head pack, and it had me thinking of a much needed head pack. A vintage He-Man head pack would be very popular with MOTUC fans as most are replacing their original MOTUC He-Man head with the vintage head that came with Oolaar. So what Vintage heads would we like to see? I thought about it and here are a few I'd like to see: a reissue of the head that came with Oolaar obviously, now things get interesting. A vintage head with more yellowish hair that matches more closely the vintage figure head, a two tone head for TRU He-Man, a blue Faker version, a brown haired Wun-Dar version, and two specially tooled heads: a vintage head with King Grayskull's hair for a vintage looking King Grayskull,and a bearded Vintage head with a crown and scar for King He-Man. That would be an incredible set for all of us faithful MOTUC fans. So what do you guys think?

    I used to be against re-releasing this head, but some time has passed and I've come around. It is simply a far superior sculpt to the "Classics" head.

    So, yeah, I'd be in.
    WHERE IS THE TRANSPARENCY?

    I am against it for a simple Reason: WHY STICK TO He-Man only when we have a Few more characters that would need a Truly Vintage head?
    We need a Vintage Snout Spout Head with a Trunk that doesn't break.
    We Need a More Vintage Looking Fisto Head
    We need a more Vintage Jitsu Head
    Same thing for Rio Blast
    This would apply to Tri-Klops too(Vintage had hair on the back of his head)
    a Randor without crown
    a More Vintage Toy Ram Man head
    Heck! Even Man-at-Arms was rocking blue hair back in the day!
    Go all the way! But we totally need the Blue vintage Head for Faker at least!

    I'd be up for an all-eras He-Man head pack; go ahead and include the two from Oo-Larr, the 200X one from Snake Armor He-Man, and one or two from Filmation, like one of him with his mouth open like he's saying "I HAVE THE POWER!"

    I agree with this.

    -Vintage Teela head
    -Vintage Snout Spout head
    -Helmet-less Hydron head
    -Filmation Frosta head
    -Jetlag Flogg head
    Masters of the Universe and ThunderCats - together for the first time! Pure AWESOME!

    I would rather mattel not just do a filmation frosta heAd. I'd much rather have matty do a full on filmation frosta in the club grayskull line we really need more than just a new head. We would need a whole new paint deco. And to sweeten the pot throw in an icy repaint of castaspella's blast

    I actually feel the same way for Hordak. I want a properly done filmation Hordak in the filmation line. And the filmation fisto head is pretty much vintage toy head and since so many folks missed the first version I'd much rather they do once again a full filmation fisto proper. Same for ram man. Ram man needs a do over from head to toe in filmation with a smaller buck and a face with eyes

    Jitsu and rio do need a vintage toy head

    I bought a third party vintage style Fisto and Jitsu and it was one of the smartest things i did re my collection. The figures are so vastly improved as a result. Wanting a vintage Faker too to match my He Man. Never liked the standard classics head.

    From your list, Jitsu is the one that probably needs attention first. That tiny, squashed head was rubbish.

    I agree with many of the ideas here, and I would definitely support a vintage head pack for other characters. But I am hoping for a He-Man ONLY pack first to cover the need for various He-Man variants. I also think including the Laser Light He-Man head in the pack would be a great addition too.

    I like the idea, but I don't expect Mattel to do this since they are so Hell-bent on keeping sub exclusive items from an official re-release. To me this is good, because I feel the sculpt is not nearly good enough, and I'd like to see it completely reworked. Then they could have a pack with the new re-worked head versions as you have suggested, keeping the sub exclusive doctrine in tact (although I personally hate that they apply this rule to accessories, especially one that really needs multiple releases). I would like to see several heads with skin tones to match each He-man variant, possibly even NA He-man.

    When the current head is on the original buck, the neck looks way too skinny. There really needs to be a re-work on the neck, but since that isn't likely, maybe they could alter the head to aleviate this problem, at least a bit.

    IMO the only problem is the hole for the neck peg doesn't go deep enough. I bored out the hole a bit and it looks perfect now

    Not sure I need THAT many He-man heads. But I could use one more. We definitely need them for Faker in both regular and one with "authentic battle damage!".

    I had good luck using a drill bit, and just twisting it by hand. Just do a little bit at a time until it looks right.

    Sounds like a very good idea, Id like to get something like this eventually. exspecially The head we got for Jitsu, that most of us feel was a bit dissproportionally small, needs replacing. in fact the possible head packs, and combinations are endless. all we need is a blue He RO 2, head for a Faker He RO, I think would be cool. would also like to see a blue Prince Adam head, whether or not we see it happen. who knows im sure well have to keep clamoring for it then maybe?
