    The Official MotUC Thunder Punch He-Man Thread

    Possible action feature? Maybe I missed this one... I searched the forums but couldn't find an answer.





    Compare to:





    Will he include an action feature with the missing back piece?

    The back piece could have been missing for any number of reasons. I wouldn't jump to conclusions. Especially since they did do the 'homage' to the action feature in the shield.

    Is it possible we'll get a backpack-based action feature? Sure. But I wouldn't bet on it just yet.

    Possibly...nice catch.

    I love his sword...it's awesome.

    I was never a huge fan of TP He-Man...but I love him in MOTUC. Much better than BA He-Man IMHO.

    I also doubt they would do this but its strange that they didn't at least show the backpack.

    It probably wasn't ready in time for the con (i.e. sculpted). They probably just wanted to show the figure the best they could.

    I figure he will get his backpack, maybe even one that opens to store another "cap", but it probably won't feature anything like the original. I am interested in someday finding out the story behind the color changes on the swords, like this gold one, the blue one, Adam's purple one, etc. Should be exciting to find out what their bio direction is on this matter.

    My guess is that the Thunder Punch sword is infused with the power of lightning to go with the Thunder Punch....

    I still miss some kind of translucent touch in his arm or something similar to the fire of Draego-Man. I love the lack of action features... but this is too plain

    The Official Thunder Punch He-Man Thread

    Since the "should he or shouldn't he" have a closed fist thread was closed I figured we'd use this thread to discuss all things Thunder Punch He-Man.

    This version of He-Man was my favorite as a kid. Red is my favorite color as well and TP He-Man rocked it.

    The yellow sword and the metal shield gave him an edge that he lacked before.


    I don't think it was clear in PD's SDCC video if his right hand would be interchangeable or if it would just be re-sculpted to be closed with the energy effect. However, this version of He-Man next to Snake Armor is my most easily anticipated. The battle armor version didnt do much for me.

    Shoryuken!



    It would be so cool to see He-Man hit a Dragon Punch pose!

    He's coming with a fist and energy attachment.

    I always hated Thunder Punch He-Man, but there is a sad story linked to it:

    when I was about 7 I was with my mom in the store and I saw Flying Fists He-Man. He looked great and I wanted him, so I showed her and asked him for Christmas. But when Christmas came I got TP He-Man instead. It was one of the only times my mom got me the wrong toy. She just got me a He-Man variant which had more or less the same packaging (the larger card).

    I never liked him because I couldn't "play" with him. He couldn't hold his sword well, he was always turned 45°, I only used the action feature with the 'bombs' once. So he spent my entire childhood at the bottom of the box.

    I also never had Flying Fists He-Man as a kid!! I only got him last year or so!

    Ain't that a sad story!!

    Yeah it is a sad story. I have a fondness for Flying Fists He-Man as well. He coulda' used more red though.

    I have a sad story about my Thunder Punch He-Man too. I was around 6 or 7 when I got it and you know at the time, all previous He-Man figures had been indestructible aside from the bitten up fingers. Well, here I am, a dumb 6 year old kid tossing my TP He-Man into the air trying to get him caught in a tree branch (yeah, I know ***!). Well, my older sister tries and he gets caught but then he is so heavy he tumbles down and falls onto the concrete sidewalk and splits in half. :-( I was sooooo upset but it was really my own fault.

    why thunder punch he-man rules?

    I honestly can not find the grace to thunder punch he-man, this figure was released when I was no longer interested in motu (I get the stupid teenage years) perhaps for that reason I do not feel a connection with that variant.
    besides I do not like the style of the harness and color
    now he is a motuc I want to like this version.

    so i need to know why thunder punch he-man rules? why you like thunder punch he-man?

    The more I read, the more I was feeling the same, though not quite to the same extent.

    I do like how his harness has the symbol introduced on the Battle Armor, and in a way bridges the original and Battle Armor designs, in a way. I also like how his boots have white fur.

    Yeah, I don't have too much.

    Don't ask me. I never had this one. But I LOOOOOVVVEEEE Flying Fists He-Man.

    Still, Thunder Punch looks cool, and I can't wait to own him. If I'm not completely mistaken, this is the armor that was used on the old Burger King promos...

    As a kid he was my alternative to the original harness He-Man when
    I misplaced him and the original was hard to come by. I did enjoy his
    punching gimmick though. I do like his color scheme and yellow power
    sword as well. He's definitely not my favorite variant but I did enjoy him
    when I had him.

    Now, that was my favorite He-Man variant. I'm hoping they do something more
    unique with his overall look when he eventually surfaces.

    Pretty much this entirely! I remember as a child being awestruck at how cool it was that you could actually have this toy unleash his thunderous fury! Heheh how silly us children were, good times.

    That WAS an awesome action feature! I love this He-Man because of the harness and the "H" symbol. I can't wait to see the energy effect attachment for his fist this time around! Also…with TP He-Man coming out…could Dragon Blaster Skelly be far behind???

    On a side note…I always wanted to see a "200X He-Man" with THIS "H" symbol on his harness rather than that horrid asterisk!
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    I also never had the vintage toy, so it's been a design that I've liked, but haven't found different enough to get excited for.

    I've just been awaiting a rather boring vest swap figure with colors that aren't even all that different from the standard He-Man, so I do think this MOTUC version slightly rules for being a bit better than that. I'm really liking that he's got a fist and the special effect accessory that I was hoping for. The sword looks really nice in that color and it's cool that the "caps" can be removed and held like a frisbee weapon.

    Also, I think everything red rules. I would have thought this was the best outfit as a kid, but it wasn't interesting to me since I had the regular version first.

    We couldn't have asked for a better Thunder Punch He-man

    I keep going back to look at whatever pictures I find for the Upcoming Thuder Punch He-man. I just think the update is so awesome. Anyone else agree?

    ItLd be cool ifthe secret accessories were a pair of Mega-Punch gloves!

    I think he looks awesome as well! There won't be any secret accessories with him they just weren't ready for SDCC but we should hopefully see them at Powercon next month with some other reveals!

    Oddly enough, after BA He-Man & Skele i really wasn't looking forward to seeing other He-Man & Skele variants for a long time but after seeing TP He-Man my feelings are slowly changing. I do agree though that the update of TP He-Man is pretty cool.

    Hopefully DB Skele will be the next Skele variant...
