    A pony-tailed He-Man, I could accept.

    I mean, seriously. He's off-planet for years without his regular barber. Do you KNOW how tough it is to find a trustworthy barber??? I doubt he had time to look, what with all of the mutant attacks and his own time spent NOT vivisecting the scientists...

    I'm not surprised, BC. I've said it a million times-these are, hands down, the nicest action figures available today.

    It seems now through the power of Greyskull and MOTUC, NA is now touching me in places I never knew existed. I'm actually excited about getting Slush Head and other NA figures, VERY EXCITED

    I don't hate NA, but I no very very little about it. Never got to see the cartoon or own any of the toys.

    I am enjoying the figures coming from NA, they are pretty much new to me.

    Good point.

    Hmmm, we've got a legitimate dentist character in the line, why not a barber? How about Bar-Bar? Or Cut-Off? Sounds like a 30th anniversary winner.

    That's true. Two characters I am dying to see now from them are Quakke and Staghorn. I'm sure those guys are gonna look amazing in this line.

    I guess what I'm saying is that while I'll likely NEVER acquiesce to the religion of worshiping at the altar of the NA cartoon, the Four Horsmen's re-design of the figures may be starting to chip away at my carefully-constructed Hate Fortress.

    My mind is open, so we'll see.
    You might have gotten greedy and simply want more neat characters to go along the established vintage ones. I'm a fan of all eras of motu. I have parts of it I like better than others, but I at least like certain aspects of every incarnation.

    I only had NA Skeletor and He-Man as a kid. With the classics line we've already gotten most of Skeletor's warriors so guys like Slush Head, Flogg, and Optikk are not only new additions to the line but they are filling up additional slots for Skeletor. Same for the NA heroes for He-Man and the heroic warriors.

    With the 4H sculpting and the reuse of classic He-Man parts all the NA guys are in scale with the vintage Classic figures and match up much better.

    I think the longer this line goes and the more characters that are released, the more variety we notice. It gets harder for one single figure to look out of place. Not impossible, but certainly harder.

    I'm not looking forward to Master Serbrian or the scientists but I'll be happy to get Crita, Lizzor, and Hydron.

    The recent reveal of The Mighty Spector has made me stop and think about some of my blind hatred of MOTUC re-designs of properties that I disliked in the past.

    Optikk, sitting in the back of my Evil Warriors shelf, doesn't look quite as hideous to me as he once did.

    Flipshot (Icarius) looks closer and closer to "okay" the more times I look at him.

    Anyway, I guess my vitriole-laced NA tirades may be about to soften.

    A little.

    My mind is open, so we'll see.



    Congrats, Mike Bock! Now pray for me to get my Spikor and Rio Blast!!!

    I feel the same way too. I really could have lived without NA anything. I wanted to pretend like that the concept never happened at all. When matty and the Horsemen said they were going to add NA to MOTUC I was like uuuuughhh. Then the impossible happened when the Optikk got revealed I was like holy crap.....Its actually possible for them to some how fit in the grand scheme of my MOTUC demands. I never looked at Flipshot the Same way again after his reveal in 2011 SDCC. So I ended up watching NA He-man again to see if it was possible to be won over. It turns out that it was except I still hate NA Skeletor with a passion....He was just so out of character that I couldnt even allow my imagination to like him. Everything else became forgivable and even slightly enjoyable now that the Toys were turning out better than I had originally imagined. And yes I sure hope they make Rio Blast soon because it would mean that much closer to a Fire Power Man.

    Wow! Ok! Scary!

    Thats the exact line I thought of whilst reaing the 1st post!

    As someone who has never seen the NA Cartoon, but collected the toys at the time! I have a real love for the toys, mainly because I could always see the great designs despite the inferior materials and sculpts!

    So the main thing that the MOTUC NA figures have done for me is consolidate how awesome the designs actually were, it just took artists like the 4H to prove me right!

    Im thrilled that you are growing to appreciate the NA toys BC,It really shows how well the 4H have done to make MOTUV,NA and 200X one cohesive and powerful line.

    And its great that you are seperating the vintage -less than great- source material from what we are receiving now.

    But most of all Im proud of you for actually starting this thread, a lesser man would just quietly go on collecting without comment, but you actually posting as you did shows real character and ownership!


    Bravo Buddy!

    New Adventures characters and style was cool admit it. It was different but we got some great new characters and villains. MOTUC is simply bringing it out even more and showing New Adventures true potential.

    ...When it comes to the 4H reinterpreting the NA toyline, I have complete confidence they can make ANY character look cool! I'm looking forward to Nocturna, always liked that one...

    Admit it, deep down you all love New Adventures. And now MOTUC is showing how truly awesome it can be. I got to see more of the old toys in person recently and even the older toys were really well done for the time. Characters like Optikk, Lizor, and others are completely of the MOTU canon and belong there. NA introduced knee joints to the series as well.

    The mini-comic story for the line is also awesome.

    Try the NA Scientists. That's one challenge I'd love to see the 4H tackle.

    If they can do the Star Sisters, why not? A lot can happen in the next five years.

    The NA scientists could be a con exclusive that come with NA Adam as an accessory like Orko. Why not?

    I agree. MOTUC is to NA what the stactions were to Snout Spout.
    Curiously, how did Spector change your opinion on NA? Is it because he's so bad that you now realise that they aren't as bad?
