AWESOME As Always Dan !!!!!!!!!!!
How about his skin tone matching with regular He-Man (body wise) ????
And does his new hands feels "bigger" in person ?
Sorry for the delay on this one! Had problem after problem trying to get the upload done. Just one of those days I guess. Anyway, it's up now! Enjoy, and any questions just ask!
Great job. It's not a figure I'm psyched about, and I agree, the face seems off. But it does seem he comes with a lot of accessories.
I am really REALLY impressed by this figure! For the most part, I've sworn off getting doubles just for displaying both looks due to lack of space these days- but I think with GP He-Man I'm making an exception. The armored-up space suit look was always my favorite on the classic toy, but having recently watched some of the NA episodes, I'm actually digging the ponytail w/harness look, too, and now can't decide which one I prefer! I know ToyGuru's heard it a million times already, and I know the canned response by heart now, but I sincerely wish Mattel would produce a new He-Man 2.0 with this newfangled wrist articulation. The classic He-man needs it more than GP He-Man (though Pixel Dan was right in the review- ALL He-Mans need this!).
Now all this He-Man needs is a proper NA steed... Sagitar, where are you?
I think the overall figure is pretty good but the jawline on the pony-tail head is horrible.

This figure turned out great! I wasn't too enthused about it at first, but the detail on this one is amazing. It's funny I think it looks like has giant gorilla hands. Only thing I don't like is that it looks like a letter "M" on his belt.
It's Hands-Some! Oh wait... lol
Cool review as always. I much prefer his fully armoured look
Hey Dan, why did your intro pan to the evil side for He-Man?? (you should also pan it up to the stars for NA reviews :LD)
I got all excited for a new intro too! Can't wait to see it. This figure just looks better and better, especially when placed next to Flipshot and the Space Mutants. May has been overloaded due to Karatti, FFM, and Spirit of Hordak. June is hopefully just Octavia. Then comes July! Clamp Champ! NA He-Man! Icer! Comet Warriors! Mini Masters! It's going to be an expensive couple of months.
Isn't this the first look we've gotten at GP He-Man's bio? It ties into the original NA mini-comic and explains why he's "King He-Man" instead of "King Adam".
EDIT: And if people want to share it with others:
Real Name: Adam of the House of Randor (TM)
Following the Second Ultimate Battleground, a victorious Skeletor (R) quickly abandoned Eternia (R) after learning of the might of the Horde Empire. Eager to stop his old nemesis, He-Man (R) quickly joined forces with the Galactic Protectors who had arrived through a Laser Gate to seek his aid. Combining his power with that of the Starship Eternia (R), Adam forsook his alternate identity, becoming He-Man (R) permanently. With the triple strength of the Power of the Universe (R), the Elder's Wisdom to tap into hidden magic and now the Energy of Starship Eternia (R), the Most Powerful Man in the Universe (R) is ready to travel through space to capture Skeletor (R) and bring him to justice!

Another awesome review. I am stoked to be getting NA He-Man....the first He-Man variant I've really been excited about! He looks awesome. Want more NA!!
Wow his hands look super big and totally off, especially when he holds the sword aloft
Awesome sticker included!
I think NA He-man looks awesome! Sure, I wish his jawline didn't stick out so much, but I will still be keeping 3 of him (1 MOC and 2 loose).
Great review Dan...and as always, thanks for doing this for the community

Maybe this is what He-man looks like after his final battle with Skeletor coz it looks like he's been smashed in the face with the Havoc staff.
It's a shame coz the prototype looked so good and this while not looking bad does look off.
Thanks for the review - he looks awesome!! I might have to get 2 of these to display.

Other than the jawline on the one side, I think NA He-Man looks perfect! I'm very excited to get my two. NA He-Man looks like he's ready to **** the mutants up!
I wonder if we will ever get He-Slave? He just needs the new chest harness and sword. Would make for a neat travelling con exclusive or something, as it requires little tooling.
You can check him out at the 10:00 minute mark, to 11:22.
