    Cartoon accurate NA He-Man for Club Grayskull?

    I love the Classics figure but it's not at all on model to the animation. I would love an animation accurate NA He-Man!Screen Shot 2019-01-25 at 4.47.05 AM.jpg

    Not a bad idea.

    I think I would prefer the Filmation concept though.

    I'd actually like/want them both. The Filmation pitch was good but it's pretty much a different character (must have his companions too). But this one actually had a cartoon so I'm deferring to this.

    I think this would be a great idea. To be truly accurate, he would need a slimmer upper torso.

    I think we may be talking about two different things. I recall seeing cartoon concept art which was basically the same design but in Filmation art, not Jetlag. So..... Filmation He-Man’s face with a ponytail.

    Interesting. I never heard this. I thought you were talking about the Dare Son of He-man Filmation pitch that was scrapped for NA of He-man.

    If they put out a Battle Punch He-Man, they could kill two birds with one stone there.

    How about "Filmationized" versions of all NA characters?

    I would buy it, I always loved the NA cartoon designs. I also want a version of Drissi and Caz one day.

    I don't understand why they would do that though as NA was never Filmation. Maybe they could do a separate Jetlag Line? Club NA?

    Maybe as a one off exclusive? I I don't think we need a full Jet Lag wave or line when we are barely getting NA characters that we need at this point. But I think they could broaden Club Grayskull to include other animation models like how Classics eventually incorporated other factions.

    It would be an artificial "what if" approach to re-imaging NA if it had been done by Filmation as a direct sequel to the original series instead of the horrid Jetlag cartoon we got instead. It would be a creative way to perhaps legitimize that era for a lot of fans who hated how jarringly different the approach was. It's no different than how Classics updated them.

    I think NA He-Man and Skeletor done in the Jetlag style along with a few animation only characters like Master Sebrian and the scientists could fit into the line just fine, no need to start a whole new line, just 1-2 per wave.

    I think that after all the Filmation variants have been exhausted, Club Grayskull could continue as an ongoing line dedicated to animated versions, and hit variants from Jetlag NA, MYP 200x, and DreamWorks She-Ra. It seems like the natural progression. However, now that Super7 are introducing new characters into Club Grayskull that have never had a figure before, the intent of it being a variant animated line has kind of gone out the window.

    While I would be over the moon for a Jetlag-accurate He-Man and Skeletor, I would much rather prefer that resources go in to actually finishing the vintage roster in CC.

    There are still so many great figures that need to be made!
    We need the POWER of the GOOD and the WAY of the MAGIC !!!

    I'd be interested. I want more NA in general. Such an underrepresented branch of the mythos.

    Looking at the cartoon:


    The battle punch He-Man looks to be the closest match:


    The boots are the same, and it's the only one with wrist bands on both arms:

    I'd rather see Jetlag than Battle Punch, the differences are small but noteworthy. But really I need that Thunderpunch harness more than anything, that's my favorite NA variant.
