    As you say, Filmation is a more simple VERSION of the VINTAGE designs, while 200x was a more detailed VERSION of the VINTAGE designs. Same costumes and basic look, different level of detail and art style. Are you claiming the He-Man and Skeletor on the cover is the same situation?

    To be perfectly honest, that new DC logo still sucks.

    Then, my advice is don't read it. Reading and following this book is only going to upset you and the rest of those who constantly despise the DC book. Logically, why read a comic book and follow the news feeds that are merely going to keep making these fans upset? You're not going to get the MOTU book you want from DC and they aren't going to just drop what plans they have and take a TARDIS back to 1983 and make MOTU completely the way it was before. Back stepping for the sake of a segment of fandom that cannot accept change would just be a stupid move.

    DC says its Mattel's design.
    Mattel says it's DC's direction.

    Nobody is claiming it because THEY KNOW IT TO BE LESS THAN REFUSE.
    Still no logical excuse for people to get so worked up about it.

    Still don't know what the hell a Tuskador is.

    LOL!! Who is to say Marvel would treat an MOTU for the 21st century better than DC? I haven't read Marvel books in years due to the crap they pulled in the past. I mean, look at the cringe worthy thing they did to Spider-Man just a few months ago. I'll watch Marvel movies but avoid the books like the black plague.

    The reason he is worked up about it is that the DC comics are the only media that represents MOTU right now and he thinks it is tarnishing its image. It is not that the look is new and different than vintage, but that it is TERRIBLE. 200x was a way different redesign, but it was a GOOD redesign, it used GOOD principles of design while retaining the vintage feel. I believe what he and I and others are saying is, different and GOOD would be more tolerable than what we have received here, which is different and POOR. Fairly simple.

    Exactly. This is more than likely the way it’s going to be.

    Although I am cool with the new He-Man armor, not feeling Skeletor.

    A lot of the improvements we've seen in MOTUC for example have only come after years of more or less constant grousing. I say if you dislike these comics, keep raising a ruckus. There needs to be some type of checks and balances in place or Mattel would run MOTU completely off the rails. Normally voting with your wallet is a natural check and balance, but not with MOTU. If they don't make a profit they blame the fans and take their toys/comics and go home.

    Nope, never mentioned the current New 52 designs (Armored He-Man, Skele-Monitor, Teela-At-Arms). Those are all new costumes altogether, as opposed to the original New 52 designs which looked somewhat similar to the original costumes.

    Just noting that Filmation was a stylistically different take as well.

    I don't even know. I am trying to like this....I really am...but they are making it REAL hard. Skeletor now has tusks...but why tusks, and not, oh say, a beak? A beak would be far more sinister....right?....I quit. I mean, I'll buy it...but I quit.

    Um, I like the new look (maybe not my favorite, but I simply LOVE new interpretations...). And I LOVE the new DC logo.

    To each their own I suppose.

    Skeletor is blue, cartoon elephants are often blue, so maybe that was the genius idea? Skeletor's legs and feet also look monstrously large and dispraportionate to his body, so maybe those are elephant inspired too.

    I feel compelled to throw in my two cents. Just kinda wondering why this new costume immediately made me think of this guy...

    I'm thinking I'm going to pick-up the new DC vs MOTU series just to see what the hells going on.

    My immediate thought on seeing Skeletor's new purple armour is that Brainiac is his new mentor. I'm thinking DC/Mattel would pit a combined MOTU and Justice League team against regular villains of their respective universes for optimum effect.

    Also, I'm not sure if it means anything but there are 5 members of the Justice League, but only 4 members of the MOTU team shown on the cover. Is a member of the MOTU team missing? Stratos, maybe?

    This is what I thought too. Its seems most obvious in the way that Teela and Wonder Woman are drawn. Both look like they have fallen asleep rather than being dazed or knocked unconscious.

    And Filmation didn't tarnish the MOTU image? Hence why MOTU has been treated like a joke in Hollywood for the past 30 years because all they think of when they think of He-Man is a muscle bound goof ball. The MYP cartoon did some justice to the original MOTU concept but still not enough. I think the new DC book is taking MOTU in a more adventure/action direction on par with some of the more well known franchises out there. The new book doesn't have to be kid friendly since kids didn't give a rip when MOTU was revived in 2002 and they wouldn't give a rip now.

    The new designs are a way to inject some new into the franchise. And I think fans can probably relax since that Skeletor probably isn't going to be his permanent design. And, even if it turns out to be so, big deal. Skeletor has gone through just as many changes in appearance over the years as He-Man has. I mean, Mattel even made that ridiculous Skeletor figure in 2004 with the extending snake arms. I didn't throw an unholy fit over that because I chalked it up to just being another variant look that wasn't going to be permanent.

    There's been a lot of variations of Skeletor over the years, but at least you could still recognize him as Skeletor...
    this dreadful atrocity is nothing but a lazy design and lack of creativity... it's TERRIBLE...

    I'm fine with the new comic and the new interpretations. I think the comic is just as good most comics out there. Not blowing me away but hey, I have high standards now. Still, I am enjoying He-Man. Some of the reactions here are comical.
