    Difference between a first edition and other releases of He-man MOTUC

    Hi! I've this version of He-man (i've only the elements in these photos)! I need to know if it's a first edition or another release.

    Is it possible to understand with these informations?

    The FIRST First Edition He-Man Figure didn't come with the White Mailer Box (if memory serves, they first started up with He-Ro or thereabouts?). Only later Editions would have that. The earliest He-Mans also had reversed shoulders and a reddish cast around the eyes, which were "fixed" on later models.

    Hope this helps! :^)

    Yes, I think the red eyes is the easiest way to tell. They made him look like he's got hay fever!

    I had a few of the 1st and 2nd release He-Man. The 1st He-Man had reddish eyes, reversed shoulders, and a crotch piece that was too wide. The 2nd version fixed those issues. However, the 2nd version was more prone to having wobbly ankles. The He-Man I display in my collection is a 2nd version with 1st version boots.

    Also, along with reversed shoulders and red cheeks/eyes, the first edition MOTUC He-Man had an overall glossy finish...

    A quick scan on eBay shows both 1st and 2nd edition He-Man figures going for between $90 - $150 USD...

    But, even the loose figures are selling for $50 - $100... of course, these are just inflated secondary market prices too.
    Where are the rest of my New Adventures Classics figures?!?!?
