    Which Figure was better as a Vintage than in Classics???

    This seems like sacrilege I know. The Masters of the Universe Classics line has got to be my favorite of all time for a variety of reasons. But you know, the vintage figures had a lot to be desired and in some rare cases, I think, they did it better back in the 80's! Or maybe I'm out of my mind.

    Rio Blast for example. I'd rather have the original. There, I said it.

    The vintage original He-Man was better than the standard Classics He-Man, mainly due to the gorgeous headsculpt of the original. But the revised head sculpt that came with Oo-Larr came pretty close.

    Agreed

    You know, I don't anyone who has the updated head sculpt from Ooo-Lar and Doesn't have their primary He-Man displayed with it. It was genius making that sculpt because it looks like a completely different figure with it.

    Definitely He-Man. The first Classics release with the "pink eye" eyes was awful.

    He did have the "Hung-over-man" look didn't he? Thanks to Mattel for the "Vintage" head sculpt. (again)

    I'd also add Rokkon and Stonedar. The Classics interpretations were a bit clunky - not that the originals were the best figures either
