    Easily the best reveal of SDCC. Hail King He-Man!

    Now we just need a Prince Dare to display him with...
    "I look upon my powers as a gift, not mine alone but for anyone who needs them." (Superman: Peace on Earth)

    GO FORWARD. Please support the Christopher Reeve Foundation by purchasing a set of Superman tags at www.ChristopherReeve.org

    If nine hundred He-Man.Org members get eaten by Thundercats fans, but neither of them has a toyline, does it still count as a fan movement?

    Fantastic figure! Very much looking forward to the story behind the sword, too...

    <---- Wondering if King He-Man and Dare go to the past and become Eldor and He-Ro.

    But yeah...love the figure and cant wait to display him with the Weapons Pack Techno-sword.
    I agree that they are different characters. The sword is what makes a time loop seem impossible since the Trollans are involved in giving it to He-Ro. I really think the H symbol and name are a legacy type thing. However, King He-Man is dressed in similar garb compared to He-Ro from POG. Cannot wait for his bio.

    I definately love that the story is finally moving forward. Though change is sad, I love to see more. Bring on Son of He-Man.

    He does look cool, and borrows a lot of elements from the designs of He-Man, He-Ro and King Randor.

    I don't like him using that crummy 200X sword though. Look at the rust on that!

    I hope the actual fig looks better than the proto. And I hope he comes with a crownless bearded He-Man head.

    I REALLY like this figure, but I refuse to subscribe for 2013. Honestly, Ram Man and this King He-Man are the only 2013 figures shown that I really want. I'll be going to ebay for this one unless someone with a sub really doesn't want it and will part with it for near cost.

    Best reveal of SDCC for me, he looks amazing and I can't wait to read his bio and see how the story moves forward.

    Really hoping this means we might get Dare/He-Ro 2 next year as a monthly figure, would be great to display them together.

    Sucks (for me) that he's sub only but he makes a lot more sense as the sub figure than Shadow Weaver did. Already got my request up in the marketplace for him, hope someone's getting an extra they don't want!

    I love it. Awesome looking figure. This is how the story ends, as far as I'm concerned, as foreshadowed in "King of Castle Grayskull". Bring on Queen Teela!!

    In the He-Ro: Son of He-Man cannon, isn't Dare Adora's son? Isn't Adora (and thusly that (?) She-Ra) dead? Does that mean Teela gets to play quadruple-duty as captain of the guard, Sorceress, Queen of Eternia, and She-Ra?

    Keep reading the bios, kids....

    I think Sea Hawk and Adora were going to be lost, or they were searching the Universe/Different Dimensions for Dare. The big reveal was going to be at the end of the 1st season, so they were not dead.

    Anyway, PICS!

    An remember kids, to be a King of Eternia you must have beard!

    I still see stupid that the alter-ego becomes King, because the one who has royal rights is Adam.

    Is like naming Superman Emperor of Krypton, takes more sense Kal-El Emperor of Krypton.

    Maybe Adam is King, but when he uses the techno-sword he becomes King He-Man? Maybe there'll be a King Adam variant later?

    It seems the guys at Mattel Design are yet to become acquainted with the basics of heraldry, particularly the rule of tincture: if you place a metal over another metal (gold on silver), or a colour over another colour (red on blue or blue on red), the result doesn't look good. And this is not a whimsical rule. Heraldic metals are high-lightness colors: white (argent "silver") and yellow (or "gold"), whereas heraldic colours are low-lightness colors: red (gules), green (vert), blue (azure), purple (purpure), black (sable)). Our visual system relies on contrasts of lightness (rather than contrasts of hue) to recognize shapes, and that's why we find it visually "uncomfortable" when both a shape and its background share approximately the same level of lightness. For example, to read letters (a prime example of visual shape-recognition), the best color combinations are dark text over a light background (and viceversa), regardless of chromaticity: saturated green text on a saturated red background is nearly unreadable, whereas dark green text on a light red background does read well.

    Haha, I just typed King-He-Man in "Countdown to SDCC 2012" thread, reveals speculation as sub figure, I won!
    btw. Strobo is so cool, as a Zodac fan i have to have him.

    While I'm not opposed to the concept of a King He-Man/ Adam by any means, I think this figure is such a wasted opportunity. The general composition of the ornaments /logos and colour arrangement looks pretty ugly to be honest. While gold and red / blue and silver usually look good together, all four colours together is way too much to look good. The only redeeming things are the battered sword and maybe also the head sculpt.
    I'm sorry, but it's pretty much the worst reveal at this CC...at least to me.
    Glad it's the exclusive.

    People care as much about this as watching your fingernails grow. Rules were meant to to broken. Artists do it often. There is no solid, 100% rule for anything, besides these are figures. Sure, some of the color combinations are childishly odd, but MOTU has always had odd color combinations.
