    Wow, no replies in over 4 years then *wham*... now that's out of the blue!

    For me, no, I started watching the Filmation series before that, well, I lost interest (Dungeons & Dragons was on the other channel), I could only remember a few episodes until the DVDs way back when. NA is still my fave He-Man animation, yes, it was done in Japan, but jabbing the Anime look is the same as jabbing American animation as well, they all flow in the same river, so please don't knock it!

    Same here I'm 40 and I got my first He-man and Battlecat before the filmation cartoon came on and was into the mini comics that came with the figures.

    I started getting masters before the filmation came out and went through to pre-ternia and the movie. Then later I saw the he-man toys in stores and they were smaller, seemed too different from the original and didn't look as great quality either. Didn't get into it as I had already moved on to other things. And haven't since.
    How do you like that, hero!

    I think I remember Prince Adam turning into He-Man in front of King Randor and Queen Marlena in the first episode of this series.

    I loved the original He-Man series and the figures. I never gave NA a chance. I guess because I really liked the barbarian element of MOTU, and NA seemed to sci-fi. I mean, I like sci-fi, and I liked how He-Man blended barbarian and science fiction (swords and rocket ships, computers and magic).

    But it's really interesting to hear from someone who first encountered He-Man through NA. I know a guy who first encountered He-Man through the 200X series. I guess we all find our own entry points, and we all recognize how cool the franchise is

    Interesting to hear how much you didn't really like the NA series, but you kept at it and watched the whole series. That's dedication!

    If I recall correctly I was first introduced to MOTU by my older cousin who had quite a collection of the figures and I seem the odd episode of the Filmation cartoon on TV. If I recall correctly I believe my first figure was Leech. The MOTU were not really being sold in many shops here around 89, only some small shops had some. It around this time NA also came out. My cousin had Battle Armour Skeletor and I wanted a Skeletor but getting the MOTU toys here was difficult but my Mum and Dad got me NA Skeletor which started me off on the NA figures then the NA cartoon also came on TV here so I was able to get NA figures and some of the MOTU toys still available in some shops. There was one particular hardware shop that had a huge selection of MOTU figures and every couple weeks when we went there I usually got one or two. Strangely I never had many good guys, they were all mostly bad guys...I can't recall if that was due to the shops selection or the villains just looking more interesting. Watched and recorded the NA cartoon, seen a lot more of it growing up than the Filmation cartoon. I seen she-Ra a few times and recorded it but I never had any of the toys...only ever seen them in one shop but at he time I seen them I was more into the other toys the shop had like G.I. Joe, DC and Starcom etc.
    I loved the NA figures as they were better proportion, with better articulation and had awesome designs. Since I have started collecting Classics I have got almost all the NA figures.

    I watched the Filmation TV shows with my brother and then we started collecting a few of the figures. We had a friend who lived down the street who got any toy line he asked for (and I do mean ENTIRE toy lines), so we would play with him a lot. I remember the first time I went to his house and he just dumped a HUGE tote of MOTU on the floor for us to play with. I was in heaven. I always loved Battle Cat, Panthor and Stridor and of course all the ladies (I am a girl). They would play with all of the boys. Once She-Ra came out and I got her they would allow me to piggy back onto their MOTU play. I cannot remember a time when I did not know who He-Man and She-Ra were.
