    Agreed, we compared it to some models sheets I just received and it just needed a few tweaks.
    Fans were right about the chin, actually it was the wrong shape.
    I hope I can you show you pics soon!

    It is NOT in scale with the figures at all. The statue is much bigger.

    Yeah, the jawline is the main thing, and the spacing of the eyes. The hair is dead on, and I think this is the first time I've ever seen anyone get those eyebrows EXACTLY right (thickest at the crest and thinner at the ends).

    As it is, I don't like it due to the face, but if it's tweaked a little, and the price is right, I would buy it, it's probably the closest thing I'll see to an official Filmation He-Man, with the Filmation Sword at that. I just hope someday Mattel does an official Filmation Power Sword in a weapons pack or with a figure....plenty of Filmation dudes coming to pack that bad boy in with.
    Recent....Flutterina, NA Skeletor
    Coming....Rio Blast (sold already)
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Not to knock the work put into it, but it feels zero like Filmation He-Man and 100% like Hanna Barbara He-Man. It's a fun-looking piece though.

    The face is totally wrong, the forearms are to long and the muscles are not correct
    Sorry to say that but this is the ugliest He-man statue I've ever seen...

    Much better--I assume the arm/wrist will be straight up, though, right?

    Face looks good but the body seems disproportionate. Hope it's not the final design.

    Not bad, the body seems a bit out of proportion, but I do like the simplistic design and how it almost looks Hanna Barbera-ish.

    The right arm seems way too big for the body and the face doesn't look right. Can no one sculpt an accurate looking filmation he-man???

    Filmation is definitely a tough one to transform into 3D. I know I wouldn't want to try it... if I actually possessed the skills to sculpt, which I don't.

    I am actually pretty pleased and will be pre-ordering one
    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.

    So you're saying there's a difference?

    Using Filmation model pictures from Carol Lundberg's post, I made a comparison shot of the bust with the face model pics:

    He-Man Face - Profile and Front:



    I think Joe did a great job on his bust, but there are definitely some adjustments that can be seen from the comparison pics that need to be made to a future attempt at the Filmation style.

    1. The hair wave needs to be decreased.
    2. Eye brows need to curve up more, and be thinner in the middle.
    3. Less white around the eyes, more white within the pupils.
    4. The jaw size very slightly increased.
    5. Possibly most important, below the nose the profile should be flat, not slanted outward.

    The bust is terrific, but would really like to see Joe try just the face again on a possible future project. If anyone can make an accurate Filmation He-Man, he can.
