    It doesn`t even look right upside down.

    I prefer this version

    Attachment 87107
    Yeah it looks even worse that way up.
    That other version is far superior, that's what I want a Filmation sword to look like!

    It is cool that we're getting more accessories though.

    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things aren’t absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I don’t collect toys to be miserable. So I’d rather think about the things that do excite me

    I'd be upset. If Mattel could afford to include a hundred dollar bill with my toy, then why are they complaining about their budget? And why not include two hundred dollar bills, so I have an extra? And it is a slap in the face to MOC collectors, because you would have to open the package to remove the bill. Also, it's unfair to international collectors who do not use American dollars. Mattel is lying to the fans!

    So they cut accessories in 2013 and now that things are looking bleak, they offer up the accessories that should have come with some of the figures this year. Netossa, Mosquitor, Rattlor, and others were supposed to have a MINIMUM of two accessories each. Fool me once Mattel... ONLY once.

    Happy for people who want the Filmation Power Sword but the proportions on that proto look really funky.

    I'm all for more accessories but I hope the majority are NOT Filmation inspired. Hoping to see some vintage mini-comic inspired swords, spears, and shields to stock Grayskull.

    So in the next panel, he's getting his hands bandaged because he tried to punch a sword?

    I'm not seeing the Filmation sword there, and I don't know why that's what everyone is saying. Does TG call it that and I'm just somehow missing it in the blurb? I see a smaller Power Sword, which most of all makes me think of He-Ro/Dare or possibly 200x Prince Adam whose sword was smaller although that's truly not a variant I expect in the next two years.

    The fact that they are packing in extra accessories could be why they said there would be no weapons pack in 2014.

    I know most of you do not like the Filmation sword, but I am still excited by the possibility of getting other fan demanded accessories as little surprise bonuses. Maybe we'll be getting Stonedar's red guarder belt thingies...

    Nah, he's getting the final stamp on his Man Card for outstanding service in the face of sharp oncoming projectiles.

    Do you know which weapons pack has the She-Ra sword? I may need to track that down.

    The file name of the picture is: HeMan_Filmation_Sword_newsPage.jpg

    This IS very exciting news, though! I hope we also get Netossa's face mask. My God, I want her mask.

    This is great news! Love getting Filmation artifacts and weapons.

    Its highly likely this sword will come with another Filmation character as we've been seeing this whole year. Its awesome that we're getting these with characters that don't really have a specific weapon so its a great way to load them up and make them even more worthwhile! The sword is at an early stage, still looks rough and I'm highly hopeful the final version will impress...most of us! (some just love to complain prematurely)

    Fang Man - Sword of the Ancients
    Icer - Staff of Avion
    Plundor - Skeletor's axe
    Strong Arm - Blaster Evil Lyn had

    Maybe a good guy like King Miro or Lizard Man is coming in 2014?

    It doesn't look very accurate, but given the very rough sculpt, it's possible that it's just something they threw together quickly to show.

    That Filmation Power Sword is just all kinds of wrong. Too short and too fat.

    I personally love this image that was provided by Battle_Brak.
    PowerProtection.jpg

    Now this is what the Filmation Power Sword should look like! Not overly simplistic like the Filmation design.

    Looks shorter and too rounded in places also.
    Filmation left out details and additional colors to save on their budgetary constraints, we are fortunate enough to have more detail added to it and that's a good thing. But as for the proportions, you are absolutely correct.

    Glad to see we're all seeing a problem with the proportions on the Filmation Power Sword. Hopefully, if we can make enough noise now, it's still early enough to get it fixed.

    Exactly! The silhouette of this sword looks nothing like the Filmation Power Sword.

    Yeah, we can only hope this was a poor first attempt.

    I'm not a Filmation first fan but I have always preferred the longer Filmation Power Sword to short and stubby vintage design. I do like the two-tone idea.

    Not only should the blade be thinner, but it should also be longer. The hilt is just awful

It sounds like it'll be similar to some of the stuff they did with the FILMation sub figures, where if a figure has one or two accessories, it could have a second or third accessory that is a cool bonus that might not necessarily go exactly with that figure!

    So, we could see more cool one-off accessories like the Diamond Ray of Disappearance, or something that might contemplate a past figure!
    YES!!!!!!! FINALLY!!!!!!! Happy Days!!!!!!!

    Agreed, it's more suited for Gwildor IMO, not that I care about such an accessory anyways!... Bring me the bazooka gun for Two-Bad, now that's an accessory I really want.

    Actually, the classics machine gives us the power sword we already have. They are breaking their own rules in order to sell subs (not that I blame them). But only maybe...the power sword was disguised in the 1st minicomic when He-Man went back in time, and this is what it looked like, so they can get away with it from that angle.

    I'm guessing that the picture they are showing is a "prototype", and not the final version of the sword we will be getting.
