    CLUB GRAYSKULL - He-Man ARRIVAL Thread

    Hi old friends - it's been a while since I've posted BUT I couldn't resist today since my Club Grayskull He-Man just arrived. Honestly, I LOVE my MOTUC collection, it is my one and only action figure collection and the ride collecting from the beginning has had SO many highs and lows, but for a while now I have felt less and less excited. I was feeling a bit like, 'it can end now anytime, I'm satisfied'.

    Until TODAY. I have to say, after waiting SO SO SO long for the classic toy He-Man head I thought I was finally done in regards to He-Man. That I had the 'my' definitive He-Man. I was WRONG. This Filmation He-Man - wow. Truly feels like a old friend is looking right back at me. For me, I loved the comics, and the toys and the cartoon - but it's clear now, the cartoon He-Man, is for me - definitive because my nostalgia experience just went into new territory!

    Quality of the figure is great - glossy, but not too glossy at all. Colors look great and the face - I LOVE it. I'm definitely looking forward to more now.

    The new packaging is also so refreshing after all the years of the green bricks. Here are some quick pics!

    Can we get some close-ups of those ankles?

    The shots you have make them look like they might be OK.
    The holding, the touching. Vaal has forbidden this.

    Nice!

    How does the Filmation head look on the Classics body?

    Yes, right, the ankles - in person, they do not bother me at all, at least on this figure - they are tight and work very well and you imo don't stand out any more than any of the other joints - like the elbows or knees. I much rather that they work well and allow for a bit more dynamic posing.

    the ankles still looky pretty gappy to me. If they are photographed from the same angle as the Matty pictures they will look similarly egregious. But, I'm happy people are liking the rest of the figure.

    edit: That was posted before I saw the new close up pics. I still hate that ankle set up as much now as the first time those pictures were posted on the Matty site.

    Looks great! He's a smidge taller than Classics He-Man, but it's no big deal to me. Look forward to getting him!

    One thing: Did he have a mailer?

    Pretty good actually - so if you just want the head on the old body, that is an option!

    That NEVER happens, and you know it!

    I would say the new ankles are still noticeable, but I personally don't think it's a big deal. I think a lot of people on here are still not going to like them, however.

    Thank you! Yeah, I think it's good to know that's compatible for those fans who really wanted Classics details in the line. Despite the stylistic differences, the head doesn't look as out of place and on the Classics body as I thought it would.

    The ankles look OK from the front but from the side they still look like complete crap. It's a shame that Mattel design ruined the 4H prototype so badly. Brandon and the design team should be ashamed. We finally get the skirts fixed but then they go out and ruin the ankles. You just can't win with Mattel.



    Well at least I didn't buy a sub so I don't have to waste my money on this figure but I worry now what will Mattel design botch next on CC and Thundercats and will these ankles be coming to the other subs? I feel bad for those who did buy a sub.
    Transparently Yours,

    He looks pretty cool. Not loving the ankles based on the pictures, but we'll see how it all looks in person.

    Is it just me or does it look like the calf on the left leg of that figure actually extends out beyond the fringe of the boot? Something looks really wonky about that...

    He-Man better be careful about that - if the boot is so tight that flesh is literally bulging out over it he's gonna lose circulation in that foot and could suffer irreparable harm.

    The ankles really look bad IMO, but the rest of the figure is awesome. It's a shame Mattel's designers team didn't fix this issue before. I hope things go better with the next figures...

    Looks ok. Eyes still aren't perfect. One is a lot bigger than the other (although it could be the lighting). Ankles are awful but overall the paint apps look good, the sculpt looks great, and seems like a solid figure. I hope the ankles do get fixed though

    Wait, so the package doesn’t have that crappy picture of He-Man on it? If so, that’s great! Unfortunately, the figure still has the awful ankles and the lousy excuse for a Filmation power sword. Otherwise, the rest of the figure looks awesome.

    I'm no Filmation guy, but (from the mid-shin up) that is a great figure.

    I still think they screwed the pooch with regard to the ankles and lower legs. Beyond that, looking forward to another He-Man variant.

    Ankles still look like garbage.
