    Not necessarily. Jessica Rabbit went for $325, and she has practically no detail.

    You gotta look at it this way: this is a 3d printed model (made from a ZBrush sculpt). Printing the master goes for 2K and the paint master is 1K (and believe me, I'm not just making these figures up), unless Pop Culture Shock does the painting in-house which I doubt. Those are prices in from a US 3D printer that specializes in collectibles, but I think this statue was 3D printed in China by Ownage, and Ownage is a bit more expensive (but the print quality is better).

    So that's just 3K to get a print master painted.

    Right now 3D printing is extremely expensive, and prices are going up. If it was four years ago, the He-Man statue may have cost $250. Wait another year and you'll be paying $400+ for these types of collectibles.

    And besides, guys, these things are HUGE! Really. Just wait until you see it in person. You'll see. And if you paid $250 + shipping for a MOTUC Castle Grayskull, I don't see how you can complain of a $350 price tag for a Filmation He-Man statue.

    As far as I know, there are no discounts if you pay up front. At least there's none in Sideshow Collectibles. I don't know about PCS since I've never bought anything from them.

    PCS always has a 12-20% discount if you pay in full upfront. For instance, the Skeletor bust is $675, but if you pay upfront you get a 20% discount making it $540. I am hoping the prices on the He-man statues are before a discount if paid in full.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    I'm curious if the people here who plan on buying He-Man want the exclusive or not? Personally I love the way Orko turned out, and I want the exclusive so badly! But it is limited to 350 pieces worldwide!!!!!

    If you are getting this statue, which version do you want?

    With that said though... $349.00 for the Exclusive and $324.00 for the Regular...
    Not surprising.... and with a three installment plan, this statue is going to be MINE!!! Mwa, ha, ha, ha

    I didn't have an issue actually registering, but after I set up my account, PCS sent me an e-mail as if I were a whole-sale seller...

    I really like the He-man statue, overall. Love Orko there, too. No way I can afford it with other stuff I'm buying. But it's really cool. I'd be awesome to get He-man and She-Ra.

    I'll definitely get the exclusive Orko version too. Can't turn that one down.

    Don't worry about the 350 run. I really doubt that it's gonna sell like hotcakes, so everyone who wants one should get one. That's my personal view, though.

    Exclusive, of course.

    Exclusive, of course.
    this actually speaks to just what I was wondering...
    does anyone have any real educated guess as to how long the 350 of the exclusive will last once the pre-order goes live? (Is it possible it will sell out in minutes/hours due to resellers, etc?) I know I won't be able to order until the next day, so was just curious if I should even bother expecting to be able to get one. thanks!

    You can bet the final outcome is fully approved by Mattel. There is no way a legitimate licensed product gets made without the owner's (in this case Mattel) permission and approval. So all you that are saying Orko is wrong.....no, in fact you're are all right and wrong. Since these colors have been somewhat different on toys and cartoons, makes you partially right. But, ff this was approved, then it is what I consider the authentic look of both He-Man and Orko. What everyone else thinks on here is irrelevant when it comes to THIS particular product.

    Actually, the price of PCS statues, in particular this one is less expensive than the normal asking price of 1/4 statues.

    Like Pancho said, it is unlikely that the exclusive will sell like hotcakes.... I am basing this assumption on the time it took the Lion-O 1/4 scale exclusive to sell out.

    For me, this He-Man is an absolute must-have, (I'm shifting my Xbox ONE money around...) but for many others the thought of dropping close to four hundred dollars (even for a limited run) on a static 'figure' is too much. So, there is a possibility that it will still be available for a while after the 16th. How long, though, is anyone's guess....

    It is still available. I am sure they have a lot left. You just have to type "Skeletor" into the search box.

    Seriously considering buying one of these. If I choose the Option C payment method, does anyone know when the rest of the money (aside from the initial $80 deposit) will be debited from my credit card? I figured it would be when its ready to ship sometime in March, but thought I'd check with you guys. Affording Castle Grayskull, a Playstation 4 and covering Christmas is already denting my finances, so would be more convenient if I could pay for this next year.

    Payment 2 will be due November 9, 2013 and final payment will be due March 9, 2014.

    Yeah I saw the second payment option. I was more interested in the third one though for $349.00

    So would I just pay what I owe in one go, on the 9th March?

    Oh, sorry about that. Yeah, you would pay $80 when you order and the balance on March 9th (I believe).

    That's great. Thanks for your input. If that's the case I'll definitely be ordering a statue. I'm doing my best to collect all of the NECA ones from a few years ago, so it will be nice to finally have Filmation represented on my shelf as well.
