    S7 ! Can You Give Ultimate Edition He-Man With Regular Bracer Hands (Both Arms) ??

    Not sure where to ask this, but can Brian/S7, give regular bracer hands (instead of left gauntlet hand like the classics version) for UE He-Man and Faker ?? Not only it will differentiate the UE figure from the original classics, It will also give the ultimate edition He-Man & Faker a tiny new look !

    Sorry I had to open a new thread about this, but I did this purposely to get S7's attention !

    I get where you are coming from, and I would support it except...

    I think they made the right choice. Had I not already had the TRU 2 Pack He man with matching bracers I may be more for it (though I still would have thought they made the right choice) and I know that that TRU 2 Pack He Man is hardly everyone's cup of tea, but I still have the look.

    I think more people would be put off by it than enamored by it. If they idea is to help newer collectors get these characters since they may have missed them, or missed all the unrelated characters that came with these other heads, or accessories this is the right thing to do.

    I would be OK with this for He-Man on 2 conditions:

    - The skin tone matches the original MOTUC He-Man perfectly.
    - The orange paint of the bracers is identical to the original MOTUC He-Man.

    That way, those who prefer the vintage toy look can just borrow a left arm from an original MOTUC He-Man.

    But for Faker, I prefer the vintage toy aesthetic and want the gauntlet left arm.

    I don't really care about the gauntlet, but I embrace "tiny" changes.
    That way your original figure stays something special, a rarity, a classic (whatever), but the new "ultimate" one still makes a great replacement for those who missed the figure back then.
    And in addition, tiny changes to the figure (whatever that might be, a gauntlet, a slightly different color here or there, those other boots so many seem to ask about, or something else) maybe make it a little more atrractive to collector's who already have the "old" figure, too...well because of the fact that it's indeed very similar, but not the same.

    I think hinged hands are more important for He-man rather than the bracers.

    To tell you the truth I'm not a fan of the hinged hands, they are not styled right, the new ones for the Filmation figs are too small, and the ones for new adventures are too big.
