    Those look pretty cool. Also there is a Ram Man...does that mean we get Ram Man this year? If that was announced I haven't heard anything yet.

    Brilliant!

    Really not liking the way MAA is drawn, but the others are all very cool.

    Gabe and his team searched for an artist who not only had the style they envisioned, but also a love for MOTU. "We landed on a well-known talent named Alvin Lee, whose work can be seen in a variety of brands and also many popular video games."
    Too bad there isn't some fan site they could have checked or the artist of the 200X comic. If history repeats itself, Alvin Lee will have that love torn out of him by Mattel in about 8-10 years.

    Pretty cool.

    Has it been clarified where this art will appear on the toy packaging? Do they just mean the "logo" with the "30th Anniversary" tag-line or will the new images of He-Man, etc somehow be used on the packaging?

    Also, I find it quite interesting that there is an "up-skirt" picture of Skeletor and a "rear-end-emphasising" picture of Man-at-Arms. Those are the kinds of "poses" normally reserved solely for female characters! Man-at-Arms in particular is posed a lot like Black Widow from one of the recent "The Avengers" (movie) posters.

    They got Alvin Lee? I love his work, his stuff on the Street Fighter comic was the best. I'm glad to hear that he's a MOTU fan.

    LOL Alvin Lee worked on a project with me through Backbone Entertainment on their port of Street Fighter 3 Online Edition- not sure what I think of his take on MAA but cool none the less!

    Pretty cool art!

    ...also, I guess Ram-Man will look like that in MOTUC. That's pretty sweet. I like that design for him.

    Really cool, but I know I've seen this before in recent months...

    Ahah! It's on the new t-shirts (first of the new wave of merchandise to come?) I've been seeing on 80stees.com and such.

    Wait. So it's not just the 30th anniversary logo that will be appearing on the toy packaging? We're getting artwork for the characters?

    Sorry if these are dumb questions. I'm a little confused.

    These looks fantastic!!! Very cool.

    And clearly 200x inspired!

    Poor Ram-Man though - will he ever get the neck brace that came with his original design? *neck-snap*

    He does that a lot in his work where he looks at well known poses and covers and does his own take on them- although it's a bit silly in this case with MAA being all... *BAM* HERE'S MY ARSE BABY *BAM*.

    I love them all except MAA who should be more muscular IMO.

    I don't get what they mean by "will be appearing on toy packaging starting in Q1."

    New toy line? New cartoon?

    He's been working on this for a while and he never mentioned it on his DA account- very sneaky!

    Oh. My. God.

    It's seriously beautiful stuff! The Mattel team should be really really proud of themselves! I hope we get a poster or two out of this (not to mention more comics, maybe a tv show, a videogame, a coloring book). It makes the 2002 stuff look rather silly in comparison, doesn't it?
    Also, check the classic art work for Wind Raider and Night Stalker. You see plenty of He-Cheek and Meka-Cheek in those poses too, so clearly the man has done his vintage artwork home work. Personally, I'm a fan

    I'd guess the back of the packaging will have the whole "faded burst" images of them posed in the background with the new style logo emblazoned on the upper right or left hand corner?

    I don't like the Castle Grayskull, everything else looks cool though.
