    Newbie here regarding Super 7 MOTU

    Hi folks,
    I had so many of the MOTU toys in 80's when I was a child. I look on Amazon for instance, and they look really good and the closest to the original toys, that I remember.

    Should I go for Super7 ? I heard from someone on youtube, that they can break easily, and Super 7 is pretty new in the toy game.


    I really am only interested in the original series and it's toys. Don't care for other He-man and MOTU incarnations, although I have a soft spot for the Dolph Lungren movie, but that's another story.

    I see some people prefer the origins figures.


    Thanks for any suggestions.

    From my experiences Super 7 vintage type figures are all good EXCEPT She-Ra she can't stand and is a mess and we FINALLY got a vintage He-Ro and Eldor finally...

    If you want a smaller limited collection with major Filmation inspiration then the Super7 figures are the way to go, as that line has ended. If you want figures that look close to identical as the ones you had a a kid, only with better articulation, then Origins is the way to go. Plus the Origins line is quickly expanding and going strong with plenty more figures on the way I'm sure. I would go with Origins IMHO.

    Both Super 7(aka neo vintage) and Origins are nice MOTU toyline both based on the vintage toy line.

    Super 7
    - Line stops with only a handful of characters release with few variants
    - Imagined as "What if the vintage toyline released the Filmation look of the main characters, what will it be like in reality?".
    - They also made the unreleased He-Ro and Eldor as if both were released in the 80's vintage line.

    Origins
    - Basically, this line is answering the thought of "What if the 80's vintage toy line is released today, how will it be made?" thus the more articulation and the more playability factor via swapping parts.
    - The line is still growing and expanding today.
