    Went back a few pages cause I wanted to compare to the concept sketch on that Skelly, and sure enough it looked way cooler, the gesture and the tone much better IMO. The cowl is especially no comparison. The product version almost looks like a plain hoodie (which adds to an unfortunate cosplay-esque quality), and even the WIP wasn't showing as much "forehead" which just looks odd and less threatening. So maybe the hood is "poseable"?

    Glad you dig, hope I don't seem like I'm bashing it too much.
    I think each individual element is crafted amazingly well, and I'm sure this thing looks amazing in person!!

    I do understand that they didn't want to retread too much of the same ground--the 4H have delivered so many great Skelly sculpts over the years.

    But for that size and level of commitment required by the buyer, it should've been more iconic than experimental IMO.

    Couldn't agree more.

    The base is awesome!
    I wish the rest of the piece had the same level of detail.

    The sculpt itself is really great, it just looks unfinished.

    He looks WAY better than that Skeletor bust IMO though.

    That statue is awesome! However, something tells me that the price tag won't be.

    Something about the face looks off to me. Maybe it's the lips?

    I can't put my finger on it.

    Am I the only one who thinks his face looks terrible? He looks more like a Neanderthal than Filmation He-Man.

    Maybe its the eyebrows, black against the blonde hair, dont tell me after 30 years of he-man ive just found out that he-man dyes his hair blonde. Also didnt know that Queen Marlena is still cutting his hair for him, other than that i really like the statue. Maybe the laces on the boots could had been darker and rivets on the belt, but i still like it.

    No i agree the face sculpt is terrible,can't decide if it's the lower half of the face that's puffed out or the eyes are to deep set.The hand/fingers holding the sword looks a little on the large side a well.

    Here are some more pictures (these were posted by the artist at ZBrush Central).

    The hair does look a bit funny-looking, but that is one wicked statue. Since I'm quitting MOTUC after Modulok, I'll pre-order this statue as soon as it's up.

    And by the way, don't blame the artist for the inconsistencies in the piece (like the hair, face, et al). Mattel had a hand in this. Quoting the artist: "The original model was touched up by Jerry Macaluso himself with sme help from John Cleary and a loooooootttttt of Mattel miss direction...I mean direction, sorry, really good direction!."

    I love Orko, but I think he kinda ruins the statue; he doesnt look right, next to He-Man in that pose...

    Most likely he will be included in the Exclusive version. You can opt not to display your statue like this, if he is indeed the Exclusive.

    The exclusive is rumored to be Prince Adam (in the same pose)

    Well, looks like Orko is an extra piece, you could decide not to display him next to he-man

    I agree - Orko looks very strange in that one picture. Is that actually the physical figure in that shot, or did they digitally add him in? He looks very flat.

    Something about the face looks off to me. Maybe it's the lips?

    I can't put my finger on it.
    Seeing the close-ups of the face, the lips are definitely off a bit. They come to a upwards point in the middle. Honestly, the sculpt of the face doesn't match the minimalistic hair, resulting in the "wig" look.

    And by the way, don't blame the artist for the inconsistencies in the piece (like the hair, face, et al). Mattel had a hand in this. Quoting the artist: "The original model was touched up by Jerry Macaluso himself with sme help from John Cleary and a loooooootttttt of Mattel miss direction...I mean direction, sorry, really good direction!."
    Did the artist seriously say this? I'm surprised...that's probably not the best move, professionally...and it also leaves me wondering what Mattel could have done to affect the face. It's not like they'd want him looking less like Filmation, right? I don't know what to think.

    If they're going ahead with a She-Ra statue I hope they create a stronger likeness.

    ...also, the handle of the sword and the sword itself seem to be two different pieces, and from those photos, are not lined up properly, leaving the sword looking bent...

    Yeah, there is something off around He-Man's eyebrows/cheeks/mouth area, but not enough to keep me from wanting this statue (and I actually like the inclusion of Orko). All in all I am happy with it. Plus it still looks way better than the Skeletor bust.

    I just hope the pre-order is set for September 23rd since I will probably be unavailable to order on September 16th

    the first thing I noticed was that the face was off...enough for me to not want it. Icon Heroes got it right with their mini bust. Its a shame because the rest of the statue looks great

    I was thinking the same as well. For me it's the eyes/eye brows. Something strange.
