Thought this looked kinda cool, as a way to draw your eye away from so much blue:
Then with a couple red accents on the boots maybe?
I also think it would be sweet to see a variant of KHM somehow with his hood up on his head

I was NOT looking forward to Fang Man, but I must admit he's growing on me. He has sculpted details that help the figure transcend his simplified Filmation origins. Thanks, Horsemen!
King He-Man however, I was not looking forward to and seeing him in person didn't change my mind. The design and colors are too WWE and not barbarian King enough for me.
So I decided to fix him. I tried to remove the blue cape after applying heat but there was so much glue on it, it wouldn't separate from the armor so he's stuck with it. Luckily, the disproportionately small head with the stroked-out facial expression and silly crown was as easy to remove as ever. I like him better with the standard, more proportionate He-Man head...but I wish that cape was red.

Love them both where I was initially unsure. Love the colors and sculpt of Fangman, he actually grows on me more and more everytime I look at him. King He-man, I friggin really like that face sculpt. I was worried about the lip but it does look like a continuation of the scar. I like his face even though it differs from reg He-man's. It still looks like He-man until I hold those 2 figs side by side. Kind of like Vykron's face better than reg He-man's anyways. So 2 big thumbs up for me.
Bring on Snake Face!!
I have to say, the accessories are easily my favorite part of this month's figures. I'm keeping and LOVING The Sword Of The Ancients and The Time Wheel, but Fang Man is being sold since he just isn't doing it for me, which is odd cuz I'm HUGE Filmation fan. And I was hoping King He-Man would win me over in person, but I just do not like his look at all. Nothing about it works for me from the colors to the overall design. Well, the head/crown is cool, but that's it. But his sword and scepter are two of my favorite accessories of the line. Oh, and the map is amazing!!!!!!

Fang Man is cool. Perfect sculpt and awesome accessories.
King He-man great idea but his head is too small. I get that when you get older your face might not be as full but I think it needed to be a little bit bigger. They probably could have used King Randors face as a base and worked it into King He-mans.

I got my Fang Man order from BBTS and he's pretty good. I like the sword but I don't like the fact that only one hand can grip his weapon tightly. The other hand can only hold the Infinity Wheel so I placed his cattle prod weapon inside his mouth.

I personally like the king randor spear as a weapon for fang man.
the colors go well & looks like a weapon he would use.

Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality.
But...there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real,
but not as brightly lit... a darkside.
I need to somehow find another shelf for the King He-Man era. I have him standing in with NA for now but that has to change soon.

I think the variant order is something like this:
BA He-Man. BA Skeletor
TP He-Man. DB Skeletor
FF He-Man. TC Skeletor
NA He-Man. NA Skeletor
LP He-Man. LL Skeletor
Other variants like ice and snake armor would be as needed.
Here is my grouping, I have my customized BG Teela standing in for Queen Teela

King He-Man is neat. I'm not blown away by the figure but he has some cool aspects and I like what he represents. He's also a good quality figure with tight joints, and nice details.
The 200x sword is awesome. I do prefer the paint job on the prototype, which had a more naturally-weathered look. But I do think it's a great sculpt with nice details, like the hilt.
The minicomic is decent as well, a nice package overall. It would be nice to get more minis! They should start putting them in the SDCC exclusives (and I refuse to believe that they wouldn't be able to afford that).
Fang Man is a nice figure and all, but I think he'll be going up for sale.
Got KH and Fangy last night.
King He-Man- a good, solid figure. I do see the problem with the face, though; I can understand it being a bit thinner with age and wear, but the bone structure isn't the same, so it really doesn't look like He-Man. I'm still wondering if the head was originally intended for Miro. The look with the armor and such is pretty good, and the colors work better in person than I thought they would. One thing I wish they had done was make the folded hood on the cape a separate piece and given us an alternate hood to go over his head (though I guess the crown would get in the way). Regardless, though not a spectacular figure, he's good and worth having in the line. But his inclusion really does beg for at least a couple more figures from this era. One just isn't enough (and I don't count the 30th figures that were wedged into the continuity here).
Fangy- I really think the Fab Four did a near perfect job on this figure. They captured his design from the cartoon and fleshed it out with enough details for it to blend in fine with the rest of the line. The one somewhat goofy aspect is the tongue, but having it actually be posable makes it one of my favorite things about him in the end. Some of the reviews I've seen commented on how they used the standard male body and yet still gave him a hunched over look very effectively, and I have to agree. The vest, neck additions and head all work together to make the slumped stance seem completely natural. I'm also quite happy with the Filmation artifacts included, and hope we do continue to see that with the Filmation based figures from here on. I was a little disappointed that only Icer came with such a thing, and that Batros and Shapoopie had no such extra (the darkling with Shesheemie actually goes with her, rather than being just an unrelated extra like the Sword of the Ancients with Fangy). Fangy makes me look forward to the Filmation sub characters even more, which I didn't think was possible.
So KHM is a decent figure I'm glad to have, and Fangy is a big home run I'm really happy with (and I'm not even that big a fan of the character!).

Got King He-man last night, I like him I do have the MAA 200x sword in his hand right now not the beat up one. I might change that later not sure yet.

I received both figures over the last couple days...
King He-Man: it's funny because after the cartoon ended when I was a child I continued the story on my own, & He-Man became king, married Teela, & had a child. The pictures I drew of him as a kid where Flying Fist He-Man with a red cape, being the last of the actual He-Man toys & incorporating the cape element from the '97 Movie. Back then I used to mix and match my toys a lot, but He-Man was King of all that was good in the end, so in a way, King He-Man has always been a part of my own personal childhood mythos or canon.
Fang-Man: If we did not have the magic of DVD and be able to relive all of those classic Filmation adventures, I STILL COULD HAVE TOLD YOU WHO FANG-MAN was!!...why? Because although his appearance was brief, I still remembered him & he stuck with me & I wanted a toy of him back then (or thought there would be one early on). The figure is pretty stellar & should be available to all, not just subscribers, (nice sculpt, neat colors, fun accessories) so for me this month was a trip back to my childhood, my imagination, and what Filmation brought to that.

Not only is Fang Man an awesome figure (definitely one of the best in MOTUC), but he has an almost captivating nostalgia appeal. I cannot wait for this Filmation subscription to start! I really, REALLY hope that we see more and more Filmation characters get their due in this wonderful line of figures! Bravo 4H!!

Received both these guys along with my Strobo, Dr. Manhattan, and Shawn Michaels ( sadly missed out on Ms. Elisabeth).
I really like KHM and love that he favors his grandfather Miro. As for Fang Man, absolute action figure gold!!! One if not my favorite figure in this line!
Finally got mine yesterday. Sooo Cool! Looks like King He-Mans crown is off center on more than just mine, judging from other pics posted here. Fang Man is really, Really great. The Map is pretty neat, but The Secret Origin of Skeletor, should have remained a secret.
