    Not sure if it will be MORE per say. Sounds like they could be taking the place of uniquely created accessories for certain characters. This is what Cornboy said on Facebook back in February.

    When certain characters don't have character specific weapons or accessories that we can include, we're now going to include various weapons and artifacts from the cartoon, mini-comics, and even the movie.
    Remember when they were asking for suggestions on Filmation, Mini-Comcis, and movie artifacts?

    Filmation fans, say hello to 200X/MYP fans. We see that you have gone through The Classicizer™ too.

    The issue with the sword is that THAT is a Vintage Toy Power Sword's blade but with the Filmation-esque handguard. Maybe if the blade was widened near the hilt, it would look like the Vintage Sword Filmationized. Again, I believe the reason why the proportions of the blade are like the vintage sword has more to do with keeping the Jawbridge opening functionality more than anything else.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    The sword doesn't look all that nice, yet. Keyword there being yet. I definitely think this is a rough prototype and by the time it comes around again the FILMation sword will be much better.
    Mattel I'm still waiting for these characters!

    It looks like they took an existing power sword and quickly modified it. It has the appearance of a rushed custom, not a true prototype. As such, I think it's likely still early enough for changes to be made, which definitely are needed. The four "balls" on the handle end need to form a rectangle, not a trapezoid, and the sword needs to be straight for most of its length past the raised portion.

    I hope it's a very rough "look what we can make!" picture. It looks like they just cut the sides off the regular sword and quickly made "Filmation sides" out of clay.

    I am VERY excited to hear we will be getting fan-demanded accessories though. Hope the final version looks like Adora's sword.

    No, the Classics machine gave us an update to the Vintage toy Power Sword, which minus the hand guard is almost identical to it. The Filmation Power Sword is longer and skinnier (or at least skinnier), and the hilt angles in a little towards the top of it, and the sides are much closer than the Vintage toy version. We got a Classisized 200X PS, and other than rotating, it looks pretty close to the 200X version....the Filmation sword should get no less.

    The classics machine applies to anything that wasn't from vintage toys or box artwork. 200x or filmation looks that differed from vintage designs 'go through the classics machine' and out comes the vintage version. ie: 200x looks that are biologically different. Dumbed-down filmation designs. etc. The 200x sword was written in as the techno sword, not the actual power sword. I guarantee this one is written in as the disguised minicomic sword to justify its existence.

    It might not be straight up Filmation, but the broad blade makes it look very close to the powersword from the 1981 licensing kit:




    Anyhow, I don't care for this one, I'd rather have the mini-comic sword.

    More accessories ? WHAT A GREAT IDEA ! AS LONG as they're good quality, of course...

    Hmmm... the Filmation sword is not so close to the cartoon's look, but let' hope there's still time to change it a bit (yeah, yeah, I know : all sculpts are SUPPOSED to be "final", but it would require just small changes on an accessory).

    I wonder whether this specific sword will come with the Unnamed One, or with another character...

    I wish everyone would stop talking about this non-existing machine that was imagined to explain Mattel being cheap (as few new parts as possible).

    We have a Vintage He-Man Power Sword, a 200X Power Sword, NA He-Man's Power Sword, Keldor's 200X Power Sword, She-Ra's Vintage Sword (Bubble Power variation), She-Ra's Filmation Power Sword...and now we will have He-Man's Filmation Power Sword.

    I'm pro-accessories and figures, anti "classics machine" which keeps robbing us of awesome accessories, detail or new parts (ex. Trap-Jaw boots are all the rage in Eternian fashion now ).

    Hopefully we can get Skeletor's Filmation bone sword and Toy She-Ra's sword (hopefully with a Toy version of She-Ra ). That would be cool. We're getting Skeletor's Axe with Plundor.

    If that's what you want to believe, fine by me, my opinion greatly differs. But I beg to differ with your logic.

    Tell me about it, lol. 200X is my He-Man. I'm still waiting for some 200X variants. I'm resigned myself to the fact that I will likely never see 200X variants of He-Man, Teela, Roboto, Grizzlor, Skeletor, or anyone else. I feel lucky to have gotten the 200X style stuff we have, I wouldn't display Whiplash any other way for example.

    That said, I think the Filmation sword looks good, but it could look better. It doesn't seem like it's been Classisized so much as rushed.

    I don't really see the machine myself, even though I use the term loosely. Classics has a look that isn't 200X which seems to be a sticking point to some people. I do agree that certain things need to be translated and made, like Mosquitor would have been unpassable to me if he had his tanks, I like the insect legs, but the tanks would have looked awesome. I don't begrudge people something just because I don't like it, or make excuses as to why it shouldn't exist, other than 200X styling, it had it's run, it's over....the characters and accessories however, no matter my feelings about them....are welcome, just like NA, no matter how much I can't stand that era. There are fans, so be it, let them have their figures.

    And I thought the Bone Sword was coming with someone....

    And you're right, no matter what Scott calls the 200X Power Sword, to 200X fans, it's just that, the Power Sword. Scott didn't even know that the staff that came with Icer was called the Staff of Avion.

    This is what I'm thinking too, it is just a rushed custom prototype....just to say, hey, this is what's coming. I think the final will look more like a larger She-Ra's sword, which is what it should look like.

    Yeah, I hope they balance the additional accessories between the various eras. I'm not really excited for filmation accessories, but would love a classic mini-comic power sword for He-Man & Skeletor, or a classic head for DB Skeletor's Dragon, or anything old school actually.

    To me the Filmation sword is one of the worst versions of the Power sword. It looks a bit better in the MOTUC style, but I still don't care for it.

    This IS very exciting news, though! I hope we also get Netossa's face mask. My God, I want her mask.
    In that case what a disappointment. That's one lame attempt at a Filmation sword. I think I actually would be more interested if it was a hint about He-Ro/Dare instead.

    I'm still hoping they have time to correct it. If it looked like the one in the Icon Heroes bust, I'd love it.

    I honestly think they took the regular sword, chopped off the sides, and slapped on some clay to make an approximation of the sword so they would have something to show. There's no reason to believe that this is anything but a first, rough attempt.

    In general, though, I think this is something good, and I'm glad to see them touting it on some of the other toy sites. Things like the Staff of Avion from the toon have been very well received, and its a good way to promote subbing. "Look at what else we're going to give you this year! Sub, folks, sub!!!"

    Even if it´s not cartoon accurate and his own chunky interpretation , it´s still looking more balanced then the current classics Powersword.
    I love such stuff! More of it! Please!

    Now we also need this
