    I think they've done a great job given that its based on a 2D Filmation cartoon - I think they have enough "realness" there. The hair does look slightly off but its OK. I probably won't get it, I really want to see how Beastman and Evil-Lyn turn out though.

    Here's the original post over at ZBrush Central (not that I want the artist to get grief because of his comment, though.)

    The He-man statue looks terrible. Aside from the overall Filmation aesthetic (as others have pointed out, what works in traditional animation doesn't necessarily work in 3D) the face is just strange. I really don't see many people putting down the 300 + dollars this will cost. I think the vocal minority of Filmation purists probably swayed them into a style that won't have mass appeal. Sorry to the hardcore Filmation fans, but I think this style is better suited to smaller, more colorful figurines. At this scale and for this price I just can't imagine too many people wanting something this simple and featureless.

    Well consider me one of the minority because this is a phenomenal statue and I will not only be purchasing this one, but all the rest that PCS does. I'd have bought the Skeletor 1:1 bust too, unfortunately, I just don't have the money for that. I'm all for the 1/4 statues though.

    I agree on the He-Man statue. I REALLY want it, but need to see how much it ends up costing.

    Man, this statue is AWESOME!

    I can kind of see what most people are saying about the overall portrait, but really, He-Man's filmation look is deceptively difficult to capture. I think it looks fantastic, especially the closeup pic of his face.

    One thing I do notice right off the bat is his skin-tone. In the cartoon, He-Man has a MUCH darker tan. All in all though, I absolutely LOVE this statue, and the Orko that accompanies it!

    I plan to pre-order this, and Beast Man (if/when he comes out) as soon as it is available!!!

    I love the Skeletor bust ... IMO its much better than the he-man statue ... 1:4 statues need extra detail, the filmation style is far too simple for something this size

    Out of all days and all times, that is the only date and time I can't be available to order

    I wonder how long it will last?

    I just hope that the he-man statues shipping to Australia isnt a killer. I still want the skeletor bust but cant go out on a limb if shipping is $500.00 alone.

    That's not entirely true. Case in point: the Jessica Rabbit Premium Format Figure from Sideshow Collectibles. I have it, and it has very minimal detail, but it looks amazing.

    I'm all in for this He-Man statue. I like it. I think it looks great and I can't wait to get it.

    I broke down and ordered the Skeletor bust. It has really grown on me. I don't have a place to put it, currently, but will make room for it eventually.

    With that said though... $349.00 for the Exclusive and $324.00 for the Regular...

    That's nothing out of the ordinary for 1/4 scale statues. That's the regular asking price for these types of collectibles.

    I wonder if they're deliberately not using the right colors or if that's Mattel's "input"
    He-Man's skin needs to be darker as does the blue chest harness & Orko is all wrong.

    I know... but those are usually far more detailed and complex statues... I think this one has very little detail and paint apps to justify those prices IMO...

    Are those prices before or after the discounts if you pay upfront?

    If you are referring to the e-mail that they send that doesn't provide an active link, then yes. I had the same problem. I messed around with copying and pasting the text of the dead link into my browser and it eventually worked. Good luck.
