    I really like the new head. It’s a better design in my opinion than all the others to date save for the original. I haven’t seen anybody ask Mattel what the deal is with using it on He-Man but not updating the other characters heads with a redesign. Perhaps I’ve missed it. That would seem like an obvious question.

    I really like the new head, the old vintage head looks really off, but I get why they included it in the 2-pack.

    Does anyone still waits for the figures? I have preordered them on eBay and my seller wasnīt able to ship them because Mattel didnīt send him the figures until today..

    I got mine two weeks ago... my seller just slapped a new shipping label on the Mattel box and sent it right back out when she received them.

    Maybe Mattel was waiting for more stock to fulfill all of the SDCC orders?


    Side note: These figures are amazing! I feel as if I opened a time machine back to 1982 as the nostalgia washed over me... I really like the direction that Mattel is going with these.

    A bit of a hodge podge. Super7 CG head, Matty armor. Used a bit of clay to keep the sword in the Origins figure’s hand.
    The mixed up of parts of this origins and classics kinda off and look weird, the head don't really blend well with that buck

    I'm still waiting, I'm kinda nervous when I try to reach out to the seller, they never respond. Just hoping it shows up

    Anyone else to waiting?

    Thanks! In person I find the loin cloth less of an issue (but still should be fixed), but the hair color really does stand out. It's very bright, reminiscent of some of the vintage Spain He-Man figures. I hope they can tone it down in future releases.

    The loin cloth thing is really more of an issue with the leg joints. The pelvis piece itself is almost identical to vintage.

    Thanks! Yes, me too. I'll buy these guys, but I'm way more excited for minicomic variants. I hope we at least get the first wave Alcala variants.

    I'd love mini-comic variants from the first 4 comics and from the comic included in the 2 pack at least.

    Any update on whether these are going to get an online release. Mattel hinted that there would be on Twitter but it seems more and more unlikely as each week passes...

    Thoughts??

    The two-packs were completely sold out. They didn't even have stock to bring to Power-Con.

    In my opinion, it's highly unlikely they will do another production run on these.

    While I see another run as unlikely, SO FAR it seems to be that the basic He-Man minus axe, alternate hands, and vintage head is the retail version. The hands are likely to get various uses and turn up on WWE figures so they can be had if skin tones match. I bet the head, maybe with slight variation, sees another release and likewise the axe. I think retail may be minus boot knife and knife storage.

    Adam is more the odd one out. There is a retail Adam based on the old toy planned. I’m not sure I’d rule out a vintage Adam seeing another release with some variation.

    I could see them doing another exclusive two pack with minicomic He-Man vs minicomic Skeletor

    I'm still waiting on an ebay seller to send my order... Don't want to drop the sellers name or anything, but they don't respond and no longer have any items for sale. Wondering if they abandoned the account or something. Is anyone who pre-ordered still waiting for theirs from mattel or ebay? Just want to know if I should cancel and get my money back or wait a bit longer.

    IMO that's troubling. They might be a scammer?

    I'm still waiting for mine, but I now have a tracking number and it appears that the set is on the way, but I will feel much better when the set is in my hands. For your situation I thinking waiting for the seller to respond isn't working. Did the pre order listing state when you could expect the set? I would start the process to getting your money back because you can always cancel that process if the seller gives a response that you think is acceptable. Just don't lose your money I'm not sure if there is a time line that you can request your money back.

    If you are outside the window (which is 30 days) on eBay you can still go through paypal if you used that method of payment. The seller I bought the battle bones from didn't send it and thats what i ended having to do.
