    All of this art is better than what's being presented to us in DC Comics' current vision of MOTU. While I'm getting used to the DC redesigns, looking at these amazing wallpapers just goes to show- MOTU doesn't really need a visual overhaul because the classic designs are still top-notch when rendered right by a really good artist.

    Remember all the hate when UDON was doing the art for a style guide a few years ago? How He-Man looked like Ken Masters from Street Fighter? LMAO!

    Can I get a hell yeah?!

    I also wish they'd give the POP ladies some love. I'd kill to see a battle scene like this on Etheria.

    This is some great art! Finally some new official art that doesn't just concentrate on the same tired 8-back characters. The inclusion of King Hiss and Stinkor makes this a winner for me! But it would have been great to see a few POP ladies thrown in there too or at the very least have She-Ra in there.

    I'd certainly buy a comic book in this style.

    And I seem to recall them saying the minis were going to be $20 at SDCC.

    Oooh nice, we finally get to see the Gygor vs Vykron art in full. Hope they keep adding more of the new art in the Fan Zone.

    This picture has great lines and colors.

    The proportions are a bit off if you ask me and some facts are messed up(Stratos´ sock feet-very MOTUC but than Mer-Man has five fingers) but that´s nit picking on a super high level.

    It´s a great picture and i love all those details.

    Very cool artwork, except maybe a bit Japanese for my tastes. I think the current DC comics are an excellent update of the characters, and would love to see a comic of similarly high quality done in a more classic style, like the piece above.
    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things aren’t absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I don’t collect toys to be miserable. So I’d rather think about the things that do excite me

    Man..that Udon MOTU artwork is beautiful! If only the DC Comic looked like this! So glad I dropped that abomination of a series!

    The battle scene is pretty cool, and like some others have said it's nice to see a larger variety of MOTU characters. I do wish they had incorporated some of the POP characters, or at least She-Ra.

    Also, is Evil-Lyn in the battle scene? I don't see her (or the Sorceress) anywhere on there. I can see them omitting the Sorceress, but most MOTU images with Skeletor's henchmen include Evil-Lyn somewhere.

    Wow that battle picture is amazing! I wish we could get Classics comic from DC in that style and not the redesigns we are getting from them.

    Great to also see a big version of the GYgor/Vykron picture, that is sweet! Wish we could get a mini-comic telling the story from that picture. Now we've got a bigger version of this is that Lord Choloh on the throne?

    Hey guys! Matt Moylan here, Managing Editor at UDON. If you're wondering, the line art for this piece was done by our own Joe Ng, with colours by Espen Grundetjern.

    Glad you all like the piece! It's been super-fun any time we've gotten to work with Mattel on a project like this. We actually created this piece for Mattel quite some time ago... how far back? well, Clawful had not yet been announced, hence why he's got a more 200x-ish head. But I think we made some pretty good guesses at "classicizing" the other characters who hadn't been created in MOTUC form yet.

    I will say sticking Zodac in the chair all Metron-style was one of my suggestions Glad Joe included that!

    I know the artwork you are talking about, however the style guide art was not provided by UDON, it was a different art studio. The only UDON MOTU art that is out there is the above piece, and the two Heroes & Villains group shots.

    Wow, even with the art enlarged I cannot tell if Red Shadow is wearing a mask or what. Why would he wear one, and what the heck is it a mask of?

    Also so is that Lord Choloh in the background of the Vykron and Gygor art (EPIC beard! No wonder it became an exclamation)? Is it wrong I'd be much more excited to get him, his guards, and those scantily clad ladies as figures than I was to get Vykron?

    Well it kind of still does and kind of still isn't that great a fit, but by now yeah we've seen much worse.
