Forget GI Joe and Transformers, YOUNG JUSTICE IS AWESOME, the characters have been redesigned but are easily recognizable, and the show is fantastic, it's got a great serious tone and throws in comedic elements, Justice League and Batman TAS were amazing, they did they same, it WASN'T SUPERFRIENDS or filmation's batman and robin, or the adam west show, but it was FANTASTIC. why can't MOTU get the same chance to grow and develop without fans crying foul??
if MOTU comes back successfully with a more mature cartoon and comic, who is to say there won't in the future be a brave and the bold style throwback series down the road?? Let MOTU get the chance to re-establish itself as a force. if you don't like it, well that will suck, but the possiblity that something you DO like will come along later only increases with each MOTU success.

When he said that, he didn't mean for eternity. It was strictly about the toys, including t-shirts or other merchandise based on the toys. Not new media like a live action movie, cartoon, or brand new comic book. That wouldn't make any sense. You're taking what he said to the most absolute way imaginable.
The comic book has a separate cannon than MOTUC.
This is why he avoids answering specific questions about the future. If anything changes, we'll keep bringing up what he said before things changed.

In regards to people mentioning Alvin Lee- the deal they had with him was to produce art for different MOTU licensed apparel and products as well as a general use for the style guide down the road as an option for a larger branding campaign. It would be comparable to what they did with Emiliano when he revamped the style guide art from the 80's as well as when he worked on the DVD's and they used his artwork. All in all it's a separate part of the property that likely never had any correlation to the production of the comic which Mattel was obviously aware of as the creation of both likely were signed around the same time.
To my knowledge, people said they didn't like the designs shown as well as the artist & writer based on their past works. I don't think anyone said this comic is awful & it's a guaranteed failure. To be honest, I feel those unhappy with what we know about this comic aready have been perfectly civilized. I can think of several other recent threads where that isn't the case. I don't understand these posts who seek to quell the opinions of those they disagree with. They only add more negativity to the thread even though they claim to be doing the opposite.
Im very excited for this comic series and so far I've really liked what I've seen. I want something new, not a rehash of things that have already been done. I'll be in the series for the long haul. I talked to the owner of my local comic store today when picking up my monthly stash about it today to make sure they'll be added to my haul this summer!
I will say that toys and media having the same look rarely happens. Transformers, Batman, and G.I. Joe always have designs for figures that are very different from the media they are based on. Some times it is not reasonable nor does it translate the same from film or comic to the toy aisle. I am enjoying the art I have seen for the comics and they sound original and enjoyable. Having read a few of the old comics from the 80's I am positive they will be far more coherent. Instead of being told to "draw this brand new vehicle that's on sale" the artists are freed up to be original. I do not want the story from 1982 to be retold, that would be redundant and laughable. I appreciate the tone 200X offered and its style and look. 30 years later it's time for a fresh take on this amazing property. So I have my comic shop holding both covers for me each month and hopefully they continue a monthly series down the road. For me MOTU was a huge part of my childhood even though its older than I am, but I have always enjoyed its different layers that it offers. Currently this toyline is my pride and joy and any extra reading or stories just make it that much more special. I just want July to get here.

But for what we haven't seen yet, let's not put the cart before the horse. The first issue debuts in July so I think we should give it a try.
After all, if the guy who published the 2002 comic is saying "let's try it out", isn't that worth a bit of consideration? Just a wee bit?
Hmm, I may have an idea why He-Man looks so small, and has different armor. In the newest advertisement for issue #2 it says: "ADAM sets out to RECLAIM the power of He-Man". This implies to me that the smaller He-Man that we've seen with the bizarre chain mail on furry shorts, and the scale mail power harness is not He-Man at all, but Adam trying his best to look like He-Man while seeking to regain that awesome power once more. Perhaps they are going with the 200X idea of a younger, smaller Adam, as opposed to the same size Adam of Filmation. I'm very much hoping for this, as it really would explain a whole heck of a lot as far as their choice for the appearance of "He-Man".
"Bei der macht von Grayskull, Ich habe die Zauberkraft!"
I'm still not a fan of the new costume design(although that's nothing new with DC Comics these days), but that is an awesome cover with a great use of the color green.
Wow that's awesome.
CLASSIC MOTU!!!!!!!!!! Brings back the feel captured by the old Norem paintings.
That cover is so beast! I wish it was more than 6 issues, since it sounds like it is going to be questing and gathering the masters. Only so much fits in 6 comics. So excited for it.
Wow, I like it, looks cool.
