I actually didn't know about the NA line at all until I stumbled onto this site in 1999. At first, like a lot of people, I didn't like it at all. I actually liked it even less when I got a couple of the figures in ebay lots as I was re-acquiring my vintage figures. But, it has kind of grown on me. I enjoy the cartoon for what it is, and, although it is not the He-Man I grew up with, I think there is a great story there. I'm excited to see elements and characters included in the MOTUC line and have gotten a few NA figures on purpose in the last couple years.
I don't think it compares to the 80s line, but in it's own way, I think it has charm.
My two cents.
