    That's phenomenal. I'm a little disappointed the vest isn't soft goods like the SDCC Adam, but it's not like it's hard to make a Prince Adam vest. I really like the color, though. Also, that's low key the best He-Man sculp imo. It captures the barbarian feel of the Alcala minicomics, while still remaining toyetic, which is what I want from MOTU. Also, I wonder how it's supposed to connect to the Battle Ram. I see the tabs on the bottom, so maybe it doesn't lock into place, but instead sits on some sort of plate on the front?

    For a lot of the dislike I have for the Origins line , I'm actually a fan of this new iteration of He-Man's head sculpt and at least to get that figure. Not sure about anyone else, but this Prince Adam with Sky Sled and mostly Battle Cat will be me purchases for a "He-Man Origins" set.

    I like the face, but not the hair.

    Anyway, this looks great and all but I'm going to hold out for the rumored Battle Ram. I just hope it comes with the Sky Sled.

    I can't imagine they'll sell a Battle Ram without a Sky Sled. I'm assuming the only reason they're selling this seperately is because there are two configurations (good and evil).

    At PowerCon I believe they said you’ll get parts to make either version.

    As one of the biggest Battle Ram fans out there, I have to say I'm honestly not psyched about this Sky Sled redesign. Too stubby, don't like the oversized guns and distorted look. Prince Adam looks good though.

    This looks great. I'm loving how many properties are putting out fun looking toys after so many years of (great) collector-oriented stuff. These look like something kids could actually get into and toss around in the dirt.

    Yep. And there's nothing wrong with actual toys! Adult collectibles are fine, but the prices keep creeping up and up. Not everybody is cool with paying close to 40 bucks for a single figure.

    Interesting redesign of the Skysled! I like the new take on it but the older design was superior no doubt. I wonder if the evil version would venture into another redesign or not, aside from the snake head that is?
    Now I'm intrigued about the whole Battle-Ram's new looks.

    As for Prince Adam, he looks good enough in my humble opinion.

    Edit: So the Skysled will remain the same, but it will have two different heads for either faction!

    During the Mattel panel at Power-Con 2019, a designer said Sky Sled will come with a translucent display stand!

    Is any of it recycled Classics Sky Sled? Looks too small for Classics figs.

    Another brilliant sneak peek. Adam and the sky sled look gorgeous, the wait for MOTU origins is driving me insane!
    Everything I've seen so far from this line is nothing but perfection. Just imagine walking in the stores and find our nostalgic awesome toys with the fantastic vintage artworks on the shelves.

    I don't like it. Super black eye brows and yellow hair. I like the barbaric expression but overall IDK, I think it could be better. The aesthetics of the figures also look off to me. Very long arms, stubby legs. Overly exaggerated thigh muscles on them stubby legs. I love the sky sled though. Especially the interchangeable parts.

    When I look at him I just see Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and I can't unsee it. Also the Man at Arms figure looks just like El Chapo.

    I don't know if anyone has confirmed it, but I'm pretty sure Mattel is doing these in house without the 4HM.

    I think the Four Horsemen have had some sort of involvement in this line, but I don't think it's been as much as in the past. From what I see in this line, it is not Horsemen work, or it's being heavily altered by Mattel design.

    Will these two be sold together, as a two-pack type of thing? Because that there's a home run... they not only look great, but look great together!
    I absolutely love the little translucent blast effect and hope we see a lot of this sort of thing in Origins!
