    $30? Shouldn't it be $25? Gotta love Mattel. At least they could give us a proper Filmation sword instead of that lousy hybrid sword.

    Those pictures are certainly a lot better than the old ones. Maybe the outrage over the ankles would have been limited to only pitchforks OR torches rather than both, as was the case.

    Wait--what? This on the same day they are telling a customer they don't have any replacement stock for a damaged figure.

    Has to be a mistake on the site--but why?

    Did you read the reply? They said they may have more in April. Maybe that is the "coming soon" stock.

    I presumed that the April stock mentioned in the reply is due to the fact that April is when those subscribers who signed up for the triple shipping option get their He-Man figure shipped and they are thinking they may have some left over or cancelled from that lot that could go to customer service stock.

    Yes I got a reponse back on that point and you are 100% correct according to the reply.

    Therefore this coming soon He-Man makes no sense? I wonder if it's a second run being as it's higher priced?

    No they are the same (I deleted my post above). It looked like they were from the new pics but looking at them up close on Matty it's the same figure. I'll be mad if this goes up though for sale at an inflated DOS price when they are telling me they can't replace my flawed one

    Same type of joint, but they don't seem to have the gap. Wait, let me get out my bifocals...

    I'm quite sure it's the same figure, but someone did a much better job of posing him this time

    The gap looks fixed to me ( though not redesigned) also, why would they have bothered to take new pics unless he was getting a re- release? I think this is good news... Hopefully the price is a mistake...

    But if they were actually doing a second run with fixed ankles wouldn't that take them several months to a year to release--considering how long the toy production cycle takes and the fact that factor line time is booked up months in advance

    great! now I can have a 2.0 posing in various FILMATION scenes. I hope these don't sell out fast which I guess a reason of raising the price.

    Is it me or are the pics of He-Man on the Matty website now showing different ankles? Also the figure is now listed as 30 bucks.

    LOL, awesome if this is a fixed ankles version coming out next month. If it's $30 instead of $25, maybe they put up a certain amount and pulled the rest to have new ankles produced and fitted and this price rise pays for that. I can live with that.

    I hope NOBODY was that much of a sucker they purchased an inflated price version off eBay. Feel sorry for the poor guy who's not getting a replacement for his faulty figure, though.

    So what does this mean for the other figures then, we still going to get the old new ankles first and then the new new ankles?
