    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.

    The Super 7 figures look nice but overall the look and playability of the Origins toys are vastly superior in every way.

    I just purchased the first one was Super7 He-man Robot and I tested it on the waist action 20 times and it broken off the spring. I also tried to remove both arms and the right arm was broken off fragile. Well, I used its accessories on my Origins He-man and the body for custom.

    Oh, I purchased 32 origins figures and Castle Grayskull in Walmart stores and online. The figures are great and no wear. Some figures loosen on its knees, I'm pretty happy with them.

    I would say the concensus here is...ORIGINS.

    Do you want to collect lose or on card? For carded figures IŽd recommend getting the Commemorative Series which is the closest thing to vintage without buying vintage. Prices are high though.

    The Super7 stuff tries to look like Filmation, not the original toyline.

    Next best thing would be Origins.

    Same here, I'm interested in carded and loose figures.
