Old thread:>>7587796This is a place to discuss all things He-Man/She-Ra.>A New MOTU toyline is in the works called, Masters of the Universe: Origins, the first figures of which are being released as an exclusive two-pack at SDCC which contains Prince Adam and He-Man done in the style of the mini-comics
I'm starting to pick up old 200X toys, and it's crazy the number of variants of figures that are out there and not documented, which I never knew existed, because the He-Man websites out there seem to not care about documenting 200X toys as much as vintage and Classics figures.This Dragon Walker for example has an exclusive European paint variant where He-Man has tribal tattoos.
Motu is coming back? I hope Street Sharks too
>>7633288So are we getting these new figures outside of SDCC? Like, a retail release or something? Even if it's just He-Man?
>>7633288I want a Mega Construx line of figures to rival the Classics line.
How will they fuck The inevitabile carton reboot /toy/?
>>7633341Probably not the mini-comic style Prince Adam, which is an easy pass, but the He-Man will for sure see a retail release. It's been said that they're the first preview figures of a new line that's being released because of the live action movie that's in the works. The line's being worked on by the 4Horsemen.>>7633343There could be word on that in the coming weeks. If they don't say anything at SDCC, then they'll for sure mention their plans for Mega at Power-Con. Mattel told Pixel Dan at Toy Fair that they had stuff to show off at Power-con, which was why they didn't show off pretty much anything for Mega Construx during Toy Fair.>>7633346Extremely diverse Neflix series. There's already massive bickering on He-Man.org after some tard made a thread saying He-Man should be gay in the reboot, and then another tard chimed in and called everyone a homophobe for thinking it was a bad idea.
>>7633339>Imagine Street Shark line like TMNT with vehicles and playsets, but all the toys have good articulation and paintThat would be total kino
>>7633361But The original toys are great
>>7633360>homophobeI never get it, I'm not scared of fags, I just hate them. Why do they use phobia like this?
>>7633366>Implying they can't be both great
>>7633399200X "Disco" Skeletor. It's a repaint of the basic Skeletor figure with a purple vac-metal chest and some Halloween style colors. He's one of the more desirable Skeletor variations from the line. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3cga6ek7bIhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EigkLORv1g
>>7633304nice to see some love for 200x. It's my favorite version of He-man, but all their toys were shit because Mattel. i wish super7 or some other would make molds for this
>>7633405Super7 could have, but I don't think you'll see them doing anything any time soon like that, since Mattel is taking back it's license to produce the new toys. It's unclear what lines Super7 will be able to do still. It's believed the re-action figures are fine, but Classics will be on hiatus.
>>7633403Why is that series called 200X?
>>7633409Because it's a reboot that lasted from 2002-2004. 200X is the name the series is often referred to to differentiate it from the 80's cartoon and toys.
>>7633411Why did it fail? The cartoon was goodBetter than the original
>>7633413It's a mystery. There's been interviews with 4H on it, as well as with writers on the cartoons, and both mention that the Cartoon Network show, for some reason got bad ratings, with season 2 of the cartoon being an attempt by the writers to appeal even more toward kids, trying to bow to demands by CN, who said that the episode featuring the Snake Men got the highest number of viewers, so they should do Snake Men in season 2 instead of The Horde. Then CN only ordered half a season, and fucked around burning off the episodes and never replaying them, as well as moving around it's time slot before cancelling the show.On the other end of things 4H said their were too many variants of He-Man with a few more n the works. They also said seemed to suggest that the line may have done great in lots of countries, but Mattel had a very big brain CEO who was very insistent that their toys were global and not regional, such as when one of the 4H asked the CEO about if they could just focus on marketing toward one country, or just a few countries, because some toy lines like Max Steel were making over $54 million Latin America, but not really that popular elsewhere. So, it's vague on why it died. A combination of fuckery by CN, a glut of variant figures, and possibly Mattel deciding that maybe another toy line might some how do better "globally," Despite He-Man's reboot being very successful in the US to the point that it was a surprise when the line died.
>>7633418The various He-Man variants. I don't think this really killed the line entirely though, despite it often being criticized as a likely culprit. Other toy lines, such as Batman had variants, yet never had the plugs pulled on their lines over shitty Batman variants.
Did Hordak appear in He Man media or just toys?
>>7633427He was in She-Ra mostly, but he was a thing in the 2002 cartoon.
>>7633427He was in She-Ra and He-Man crossed over into She-Ra. He was also vaguely in 200X and made a bunch of appearances in comics.
>>7633426Smash Blade He-Man is often criticized, for being just He-Man with a new hat. Since he's just He-Man with some blue paint instead of brown, and with a spinning weapon that clips on his wrist.
>>7633288Is that Jem?
>>7633438Skeletor also got a spinning weapon. I recall passing up both figures, because I incorrectly assumed there must be a stupid gimmick that activated the spinning feature. I didn't realize it was just literally a simple spinning plastic accessory that could just clip on and off. I would have bought the figures then, if only just for the cool black Skeletor and spinny accessories.
Which crazy vehicles do you want remakes of /toy/? I want skeletor shark vehicle remake
>>7633447the one that's a big buzzsaw, had that one as a kid, albeit secondhand(didn't even find out it was a MOTU toy till a couple years ago)
So,will they reveal this new MotU toyline at SDCC?
Did He Man 200x have good female figures?
>>7633288THE CHAD SKELETOR VS THE VIRGIN HE MAN
>>7633500They were decent. There's only three though. Evil-Lyn, Teela, and She-Ra. She-Ra's an exclusive also, so she costs more. They made a Sorceress as well, but she's a statue that's made to scale with the figures.
>>7633553You can see the the Sorceress statue was made to scale with the figures, so you could add her to your collection, since she was never made in the line.
>>7633615She-Ra also came with doll hair and a comb, a reference to her old toy line.
>>7633482This,is this MotU toyline happening?
>>7633367They're not a threat to you yet you hate them regardless. It seems like a brainlet fear response more than anything.
>>7633660I hate them because they disgust me.
>>7633664>>7633665>hurr durr you are with orangedude if you disagree with me or christianI'm atheist,fags are against the laws of nature and a mistake,animals do it but we aren't animals.You are an idiot,kys and leave /toy/ now
>>7633664>Conservative NPC saying pedophelia is goodI dunno who made that meme, but I've been seeing way more support for pedophelia on the left than the right. They're the ones pushing the "trans kids" shit.
>>7633707You don’t know that humans are animals?Christ, dude. Is this a pathetic attempt at trolling? Because if it’s not, you need to get some help. There’s no way you’re mentally prepared to live in the real world. Maybe get into a group home or something?
>>7633922>humans are animalsWe are evolved,we are beyond them. Maybe you are an animal but I am something more,I am a human being that can think and has consciousness. You don't have that,you are left in the past,primitive.
>>7633288I hope we get Snake men in MotU Origins line
>>7633288More pics like this?
>>7633948>we are beyond themHahahahahahahahahahahahahahah

>>7633288So this add-on to Castle Grayskull that was posted. What did it do? Just give a better front door?
>>7634210It adds a back door to it. The door can be smashed open with a battering ram it comes with. There's also parts of the wall that can be smashed away with a catapult that it also came with.
>>7633975Depends on how long the new line goes on for. I'd suspect they'd want to do characters from the first two waves of the vintage toy line first, most of which were essential characters:He-ManSkeletorBeast ManMer-ManEvil-LynFakerTrap-JawTri-KlopsMan-At-ArmsMan-E-FacesStratosZodacTeela
>>7633948is this a joke reply? am in one of those weird insurance ads where a caveman in modern times is acting silly?
>update Terror Claws Skeletor>call him Battle Armor Skeletor
>>7635279>update Battle Armor Skeletor>call him Battle Sound Skeletor
>>7635281>update Battle Blade Skeletor from New Adventures>call him Mecha Blade
This is it,200x died because of too many Skeletor and He Man variants. Not even Optimus Prime and Megatron get so many variants in a year.
>Remake Flying Fists He-Man>call him Smash Blade>make him blue instead of red
>>7635293>make a Flying Fists version of Skeletor since there was never one in the vintage line>he's Spin Blade Skeletor
>remake Thunder Punch He-Man>he's now Mega Punch
I wish we could get some modern figures based on the 200X looks and proportions. I don't mind the 80's designs or anything but that just wasn't my He-Man.>>7635290Yep. All of my friends were into 200X when we were kids but the He-Men and Skeletors clogged the pegs so hard that we only had three or so side characters each and none of us had the same ones yet we all had at least one Skeletor and He-Man and a variant or two.
>>7633553I had a crush on her,my grandma made me a plush doll based on her. When I was 15 I learned to fap and cummed on it,later on I made a hole in it and put my..well y'know.I still feel ashmed of it to this day.Anyway,which figures do you want remakes of in Origins? Is Origins the official name of the line or is all speculation?
>ruin snakemen in 200XWhy?
>>7633426It didnt help that cases of 200x figures had a shit ton of heman and skeletor and few of the other characters. After a bit stores got full of heman and skeletor and stopped ordering new product.Same thing happened to gi joe with The rock figures.
>>7634233>It adds a back door to it. The door can be smashed open with a battering ram.Lewd.
>>7633552Also snek Teela.
>>7633426>early 2000 figures>kenner star wars-tier articulationI don't get it.
>>7636355>>kenner star wars-tier articulationThey had more than that, they were 8 POA>>7636293I didn't count her because she was a repaint
Someone already customized the new He-Man figures. Vintage armor fits on them.
https://www.comicsbeat.com/sdcc-19-she-ra-mattel-dolls/It seems She Ra doll line is happening,a new He Man cartoon might be greenlit at Netflix,probably a She Ra spin off set in that artstyle world.
>>7636882>probably a She Ra spin off set in that artstyle world.Eh I wasn't offended by Calarts Ra since I never gave a fuck about She Ra and I actually kind of liked some of the new looks (Entrapa and Catra are cute and the girls don't look too samey) but this might piss me off a little. I am going to try to look at it as it's own thing but the faux anime Avatar thing doesn't feel right here and 200X is a hard act to follow as far as cartoon updates go.
>>7636891Maybe they bring 200X? Probably not,too racist and mysoginistic for Todays world.
>>7636899>Maybe they bring 200X?God I wish.All they would need to do for diversity is bring Clamp Champ into the main cast or something and give Teela a more active role.It wouldn't even have to be forced and awkward like most modern cartoon diversity.
>>7633418If Heman is to get a new series on netflix, I hope it's a continuation to 200X then. Most of the heavy lifting is already done, and all they'd need to do is add the whole series in HD.
>>7636882>At least this show isn't just a commercial to sell toys like the old one>season 2 literally has an episode of the cast playing with figures of themselves >this is teased and a target exclusive line is announced
>>7636920>>7636914>>7636891Here's your New He Man bro
>>7636931A man can dream of something better. I can only hope we see something more respectful to the He-man brand.
>>7636937Maybe Centineo's He Man will be good? Noah Centineo will play He Man in the live action reboot.
>>7636941Im hoping to see Centineo in costume before I make a solid judgement.
>>7636944I hope I see him go the Chris Pratt transformation first
Hordak and Scorpia dolls also happening
Of course, everyone care about Catra
I fucking hate Nu Ra, they ruined Hordak
>>7637004>>7637006>Dyke-Ra fagGo away>>7637009Based
Making the dive into 200x figures. I loved the cartoon as a kid, but never got any figures until I was older. Have Disco Skeletor, Regular Skeletor and Panthor. Just grabbed Battle Armor Skeletor, Battle Sound Skeletor and Evil Lyn. What are your guys' favorites from the line?
>>7637009>ruining a character by adding personality to it while the original had no personality at allBullshit,have sex>>7637068>using racism to get away with itThe show is popular,already in it's third season. How's He Man bro? :^)>>7637004I need Catra so fucking much! Hordok is a must too.
I love new adventures of he man,wish we got remakes of it.
>>7637134Trap-Jaw is a must. Merman and Man-E-Faces are great. One of my favorites though was the Ice Armor He-Man.
>>7635295Still... that's a great looking Skeletor.
>>7636931He is wearing more clothes than the original He Man but for some reason he feels more nude.I hate it.
>>7637134Basic He Man and Skeletor, their respective mounts, Ram Man and Man at Arms were the ones I played with the most so I have the most fond memories of those.>>7637009Hordak is one of those characters who had really cool looks but was kind of a useless retard in the show proper like most of the other villains.That is why I cant really get offended by the new characterizations even if I don't watch Tumbl Ra.>>7637158Lesbians aren't a race.
>>7637466I love it
>>7636941>Whiny pretty boi latino.>This is the Nu face of He-Man.Dear Lord, no.
>>7636931that would be a mediocre He-Man design, but a good Prince Adam one(reminds me of those discussions on /co/ where we had the idea of a He-Man reboot with Prince Adam being on the younger side, like 13 to differentiate him from He-Man more)
>>7638335He can bulk up, look AT Chris Pratt
>>7637442>>7637479Agree on basic He-man, Skeletor, and Trap Jaw as must haves if you get into it. I liked Teela and Orco too.
>>7637134You need a good He-Man:>Basic He-Man- either regular or iron cross versions>Battle Sound >Smash Blade>Mega Punch>Snake Armor You also need these figures at minimum:Trap-Jaw, Mer-Man, Tri-Klops, Man-At-Arms, Teela, and Orko.
>>7638674Indiana Jones 5?
>>7638692Battle Sound He-Man was a modern update on Battle Armor He-Man. He came in 4 main versions, with either silver or gold armor. He also had different voice actors for his figure, with some having the 80's filmation actor doing the voice, while other versions of the figure had the voice of the 200X actor. There was in addition foreign versions with foreign actors doing the voice.
>>7638709Snake Armor He-Man is pretty expensive and harder to get.
>>7638712Mega Punch He-Man, an update of Thunder Punch He-Man. He included a special sword and some giant gloves he could wear.
>>7638694200x Merman a cute. A 100% absolute sweetheart.
>>7638709Now I need to look up some foreign fig reviews.
>>7637004I hope we get a Bow doll,I love Bow so much :)
>>7637134>What are your guys' favorites from the line?Shield Strike/Stealth Armor He-Man. He's the most clothed of all the He-Man figs out there. (Pants!) He's also got this whole "shark" motif going on with the shark shaped sword and the shark fin shield. Jawsome. I know there's better 200x He-Man variants out there. I just like his aesthetics more.
>>7638692>>7638655>>7637479>>7637442Trap-Jaw, Merman, Tri Klops, Teela, Man at Arms and He-man (Original and one variant, leanign towards Battle Sound) are on the list. How are Kobra Khan and Rattlor? They seem to be rarer and cost more, but they were some of my favorites from the show.
>>7638727A Foreign review of several 200X figures, including Battle Sound He-Man, in which you get to hear the sounds from one of the foreign versions of the figure.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MaXYVO46C3M
>>7637134I'm building/re-building my 200X collection. I still have my figures from when I was a teenager and was collecting them, but some of them are beat up a bit from me fucking around with them. I had basic Skeletor, Disco Skeletor, Mer-Man, Tri-Klops, Trap-Jaw, basic He-Man, and Prince Adam. Most of them except Prince Adam and Disco Skeletor are beat up.I was trying to collect a bunch of the evil warriors back when the line first came out, but it was kinda difficult for a young teen, let alone any kids to track many down. I didn't have a car to go toy hunting from store to store and the only money I had was what my family gave me. I saw Beast Man like twice in the wild and ended up passing him up for other toys on my limited budget. I didn't usually see evil warriors except in comic shops, and then they were asking for rape prices for them. Since then the prices fell drastically with everyone getting into Classics. I did see lots of the repainted evil warriors later in the line, but never picked them up because they weren't true to the cartoon, despite that it re-released some characters like Beast Man.I just re-bought Tri-Klops, and picked up Evil-Lyn and Teela. I'm working on picking up a Man-At-Arms and Orko next so I can complete the main cast, since you really need, He-Man, Prince Adam, Man-At-Arms, Teela, and Orko
>>7639741I remember seeing the figures at K.B. toys a lot before they closed down.
>>7638692I loved this Trapjaw. I may have to get one now.
>>7639275Kobra Khan's decent, the only problem you run into with the Snake men is that they only got to make three of them in the 200X toys. Neca finished them out doing mini-statues that you can have stand in with your three figures, but the statues obviously have no articulation.A short review of Kobra Khan- he has added jaw articulation and a water sprayer in his mouthhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBtWGr-xMD0Video of Rattlorhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhOD202-WHE
All the 200X figures I got had annoyingly loose joints. Which is weird because more simple figures usually don't have that problem.Maybe it's because a lot of the ones I got were variants, and the molds were wearing out.
>>7637466Black bike shorts are more lewd to be honest.
Faker's a really good 200X figure, but he's pretty pricey. He sells for between $65-100 because he was an exclusive.
The Spitbull is an underrated vehicle
For some reason it never dawned on me that the Battle Tank was the Battle Ram
>>7640579Oddly they used the name Battle Ram for the Battle Ram Chariot for Skeletor.
Boss Fight Studios is suggesting that Super7 will be announcing TMNT figures at SDCC with a similar idea to MOTU Origins, with Playmates style Turtles figures with modern articulation.
>>7641741Thats exactly what I want out of turtle toys, but I know they'll charge like $35 a pop. If they could be retail $15 or even 20 I'd bite.
>>7641746I just want more toys of fast forward
>new Masters of the Universe line>it's old skeletor and he-man designs againthis franchise is circling a drain
>>7641829It really is.Its sad because there's a lot of us 2k3 fans who would've gladly been new blood for the line but they don't want us. I have a theory that the next step for MOTU is expensive Sideshow statues as the existing fans already have the classic 80's style toys they want between the original line for vintage, and MOTUC in both the original and Filmation incarnation.
>>7641852somehow I don't think homaging an almost 20 year old tv show is the key to reinvigorating the linethey need to straight up modernize this franchise like all its competitors have done. well, except for GI Joe, I guess.
>>7640573A hobby shop near me still has a few of these.
>>7641856And Gi Joe is dead too. The 80's franchises that survived, TMNT and Transformers, are the ones that kept pissing off 80's kids the most.
>>7641928G.I. Joe died because of the second movie's delaying a year which pissed off the retailers. I wonder what will happen when the Snake-Eyes movie happens what will there be any merch for it?
>>7642790You broke your arm?
>>7642790Those new He-Man figures look so awful. Mattel just cannot figure out articulation.
>>7641928You forgot MLP
>>7641852There was a Sideshow statue line. We got He-Man, She-Ra, Skeletor, Evil-Lyn and Orko. They lost the license before they could complete Teela and Hordak.
Dan put up a review for the SDCC adam/he-man two pack. Looks like you can straighten the legs more than whats been show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5B6XtR2slk
>>7645279Yeah, it helps hide the horrible Mattel joints some, but even Dan admits they look bad.
>>7645279There's gotta be something more to this origins line. No way can Mattel think people are going to buy MOTU twice after Classics.
I really like the big fish eyes on Mondo's Mer-Man but $170 is waaaay too much for me.
>>7645370Some people maybe have been put off by the 7in scale. Also if this actually makes it to retail it may reach an audience who didn't know about classics.
>>7645592I feel like I am yelling into the void when I bring this up to people. There are tons and tons of people out there that have never known about Classics and are shit out of luck getting most of the line for a decent price. Getting a line like Origins onto retail shelves will be huge for general people.
I was fiddling around with some figures from the 200x the other night. I forgot how excited I was over this series. I grew up with the 80s toys and I liked the new style. I wasn't excited about MOTUC though, and didn't get into it until the third or fourth year.All I have in regards to 200x are Skeletor, Orko, Kobra Khan, Trap Jaw and Two Bad. I used to have basic He-man too, but I damaged it. I was in college when these came out but they make me feel nostalgic.
>>7645598It's 50% screaming into the void, 50% preaching to the choir.
>>7633664>>7633665>>7633707>>7633762>>7633922>>7633948>>7634036>>7633660>>7634041yall are gay
>>7637006cool vagina sword.
>>7636931Fuck the shorts! Why do all these modern character designers think fantasy barbarian types wear shorts? They look terrible!
I want to get into MOTU but I don't know where to start. Should I get vintage, 200X, MOTUC, or something else? If those origin figures do start releasing, I might start with those.
>>7646989Depends what you want out of the line. I’d say go with whatever style you like best. But if you want an extensive line, nothing is going to come close to the variety of Classics.
>>7647175I personally like the 200x designs the most. The Classics has the best articulation and a lot of good beasts like Battle Cat and the Griffin. Modulock is great in the Classics line. As is Mantenna. But the vintage line has a lot of charm. I still enjoy the Castle Greyskull set and most of the basic figures from the line, and has the benefit of being huntable in thrift stores if that's your thing.
By the power of caste grayskull, I have all of the powerrrrr!
>>7647175I just want toys that look good and I can fiddle around with. I mostly like the more scifi looking characters and merman.
>>7647618Well, Merman is always the best.I’d suggest to wait a couple days and see what Mattel shows at SDCC. If they do this new vintage style line, it could be up your alley. They’ll have the look of the old figures with better articulation and durability. If you don’t like what they show, you can always go back and pick up the Classics you like.
>>7647917That's what I'm thinking. I do like the new head in the origins 2 pack. I just hope any new line digs as deep as classics eventually. I love the new adventures aesthetic.
>>7645279Booo, no power punch, boooooo!
SDCC reveals when??????????
>>7648458how do you preserve power punch and add waist articulation?
>>7648466RIGHT NOWPics of new Mega Construx line shows a Talon Fighter and Point Dread set
>>7648711Facebook group just now. It's a set-up photo from SDCC.
>>7648713Ok,post more stuff when it gets shared anon. Thx
>>7648696I think there's Origins figures in the third case. Perhaps a skeletor, since one of them looks blue?.
Are you ready for Skeletor He-Bros?https://io9.gizmodo.com/mattel-is-bringing-back-the-original-vintage-he-man-fig-1836426928https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52g6YBSOhJU
>>7649061What the packaged Origins figures will look like
>>7649063So the mass release probably won't have the vintage style heads?
>>7649063>Decades after debuting way back in 1982, there have been several attempts to revive those original figures, but starting in 2020, io9 can exclusively reveal that Mattel will release a new Masters of the Universe Origins Line, starting with He-Man and Skeletor.>The Masters of the Universe Origins Line marks the first time Mattel is revisiting the vintage styling of its original MOTU toys. The new figures still stand about 5.5-inches tall, and feature the same incredibly buff builds and bulging muscles as the ‘80s figuress did, but with some updates made possible by 37 years of advancements in toy manufacturing.>Children of the ‘80s had to make do with just six points of articulation on their MOTU figures, resulting in some stilted battles between He-Man and Skeletor. But the new Origins line now features 16, allowing He-Man to finally raise his sword high into the air when calling upon the power of Castle Grayskull.
MotU anons, what are your opinions on the Three Towers? Just lore-wise, not in terms of buying the playset (though I'd love a Mega Construx version).
>>7649071Possibly. It's uncertain until we know more. The line wont be out until 2020, but I'm thinking Mattel will tell us more soon. I can't even see his power sword in the package, but he obviously has that, along with his axe and shield.
>>7649072>The revamped vintage line also features more details this time around, with improved paint jobs, and even new face sculpts that reflect the equally popular Masters of the Universe ‘80s animated series. But before you fly off into a rage about another toy company dabbling with nostalgia but messing with perfection, Mattel’s created an excellent stop-motion video showing off what Prince Adam and He-Man are now capable of with their newfound flexibility and posability. Take a first look below, debuting here on io9!>It turns out retro toy fans can have their Eternia cake and eat it too.>Even the packaging for the new Masters of the Universe Origins line is highly influenced by the original ‘80s figures, with a gratuitous use of shiny metal-effect lettering. Mattel has even created an updated line of mini-comic books that will be included with every Origins line figure—a tactic that originally allowed the toymaker to give the characters it was introducing in the early ‘80s an interesting backstory before the animated series hit the airwaves, but now it just serves as an added and welcome bit of nostalgia.
>>7649061>>7649063What scale are these again? If they go for a reasonable price I can really see them being fun little toys.
>>7649077>The 30+ year wait for He-Man to return to toy store shelves isn’t quite over just yet, however. The figures are being revealed at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 for the first time, but won’t go on sale until Fall 2020, just ahead of the new He-Man movie that’s also en route.>If you just can’t wait that long, there’s some good news: As part of its SDCC 2019 exclusives, Mattel will actually be selling a He-Man and Prince Adam collectible two-pack featuring the same highly articulated figures as will be included in the 2020 Origins line. The company’s online store appears to be sold out of them at the moment, but if you’ll be at San Diego Comic-Con this week, you’ll have a chance to grab the set at Mattel’s booth.So we wont have these figures until fall of next year. That's a long ways away.
>>76490795.5 inches. The same height as the vintage figures.
>>7649083Nice. Thanks for not berating me for missing it here:>>7649072
>>7649071>>7649075Scratch that, I inspected the package harder and the weapons are hidden behind him. I'm thinking the vintage toy head could have been SDCC exclusive unless they release it packed in elsewhere in the line.I circled his sword and shield.
>>7649061His boots look a little odd and I’m not sure I like the open mouth, but otherwise he looks great.
>>7649095So the extra hands were only for the special releases I assume?
>>7649116Unknown. I can't see them in there, but then again I didn't even see the weapons at first. I guess it depends on the price point the new figures are going for. If they're like $10 figures I can't imagine the extra hands being packed in.
>>7649061God that he-man sounded awful.
>>7649061That looks so bad.
>>7649163>>7649223The duality of man
>>7649063>>7649061These look like everything I've always wanted out of HeMan figures. Classics look beautiful, but these look so playable that I just cannot wait.
>>7649061The he-man looked bad but this looks charming as hell. Then again the Evil warriors were the best anyway. skeletor really is the best bad guy toy ever designed.
>>7649116I don't see a chocking hazard on the box (unless its on the back) so its probably a safe bet them and the knife aren't included.
>>7649266I dunno. The slot for the knife is still there on the boot.
>>7649287It could be their using SDCC he-man for ref and haven't made a standard release with normal boot.
>>7649284Logo for the line
>>7649298Is it really below Mattel to just leave the boot as is and not include the knife, though?
>>7649329don't encourage me to pay scalper prices
>>7649337I gotta offload this two pack somehow.
>>7649340i'm sure you'll have no problem
>>7648506With power punch action, waist articulation is unnecessary. You gain both a power punch action and an outward cresent kick action.
>>7649302I want all of these!
>>7649061Is his jaw articulated? I hope it is.
>>7649260Apparently one of the children in their marketing 80s research group (basically a room with some kids who got to play with some early versions of the toys) tried to steal the Skeletor by pocketing it. And that was when Mattel knew they had something big.
>>7649503If that’s actually true it’s a great story.
>>7649503Yeah, I saw The Toys that Made Us too. My favorite was when that one black guy(I think he was a sculptor for Toy Biz) described Skeletor as "the toy he had waited his whole life for" Which is such a perfect way of describing him. Just a perfect cool design.
>>7649523He also said he-man was tan enough to look like his cousin.
>>7649535Lol, and also that for a lot of his friends the moral lessons at the end were the only examples of morality they’d learn, which hit close to home.
>>7649244These are the action figures I wanted when I was a wee lad playing with the originals.
Origins will retail at $14.99. More characters to be revealed over the weekend. More vintage toy inspiration than mini comics.
>>7649578>$14.99I think that's fair.
>>7649578I was excited for a mini comic line. Guess I'll have to get that two pack after all.
>>7649560Holy shit, that’s deep.>>7649578Sounds good. Only a bit more than what Funko charges for their Savage World figs, and for more articulation and accessories I don’t mind paying it.
>>7649578Hopefully the accessory count is respectable. 1-3 extra accessories would be a good start, for He-Man for example his sword, axe, and shield, for Skeletor, his sword and havoc staff, for Man-at-Arms, his blaster and his mace. I'm not really expecting extra hands and heads, but once in a while or for characters that need them, I'd think that's important.
BIG MISTAKE not making these 6-inch instead of 5.5in. They are hoping to capture a new market of kids with the 2020 Movie (which will likely be shit if rumors are true), but really, the Big Dog in the toy aisle is Marvel Legends, and they should have had these playable with them.I totally get the 5.5in reason but they're going to look like shrimps compared to ML's, which will keep these mostly aimed at collectors.And please spare me the autistic bitching about what's come before, this will be the first At-Retail line of MOTU in forever, and now with a movie marketing blitz. This would have been the line kids would have mixed in with their Avengers.Otherwise, I'm happy with the articulation and will be picking a few up. I'm not going to deal with Exclusives and Chase nonsense though.
>>7649578Just gimme Man E Faces without charging up the ass.
>>7649753These get a bit taller than the vintage because you can actually stand them up straight. I think it's a great size. If anything i'm looking forward to suggestive homoerotic manlet poses.
>>7649753Kids don't buy Marvel Legends.
>>7649817Who even buys ML?
>>7649821u knoe who
Def looking forward to tomorrow and the full reveal. I went from lukewarm/no interest to just cherry picking my fav characters.
Please keep the moustache off, Mattel.
>>7649927If they're going to be based on the vintage toys I don't see why they'd give him a mustache.
>>7649933Well it seems to be a mixture of filmation and classic so it could go either way.
>>7649950I hope not. Filmation just means stripping details like the super7 vintage line.
>>7649766>These get a bit taller than the vintage because you can actually stand them up straight.How tall are they standing straight? I always felt like they lost a good inch because of the squat.
>>7649927Compromise, alt head. Or I guess maybe a variant with a vehicle. My Duncan needs his moustache.
>>7649817Thank you for speaking up on behalf of all kids. Of course, I've seen plenty of kids buying ML, so I guess you're both wrong and retarded.
>>7649972they only seem to gain about half an inch
She Ra doll line got revealed CATRA is fabulous!
I NEED this
>>7650241wish battlecat had articulated legs but otherwise looks great
Pixel Dan interview with Mattel over the new Origins linehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQted_GN6XUThe line is pretty much Mattel's replacement for Classics, essentially wanting to remake all the characters yet again for a new generation of fans since Classics began 11 years ago. The figures are also going to be at retail.
More mega construx characters!
>Stinkor>Battleground/200X Evil-Lyn>Filmation Evil-Lyn>Fisto
>MotU has a resurgence in preparation for the 2021 filmPlease don't fuck it all up,I wanna see MotU as big as Transformers
>>7650290It was ruined the very second Sony was attached to the projectResponsible terrible woke movies:>Ghostbusters 2016>Men in Black International>Dark Tower>the recent Spider-Man movies >Made the Sonic the Hedgehog movie and then sold it to Paramount as a tax write-offThere's zero chance it's going to be good unfortunately.
>>7650321Well,the writers of Iron Man 1 will write this movie so maybe it will be decent? Sony selling Sonic to Paramount was a dick move,now Paramount have to salvage their movie.
>>7650321I wish WB got their hands on the project instead of Sony with James Wan directing.
>>7650233Holy fuck it's CATRA! Best line incoming!
I fucking love She Ra
>>7649061I hope they will release the vintage vehicles and playsets.
>>7649821>>7649861Based>>7650071t. MLtard>>7637158>he thinks getting a new season on Gayflx means a show is popular>he doesn't know>>7650233>>7650361>>7650531>It's the retarded Dyke-Ra fags againThe dolls were already revealed in the fashion doll thread, but I know you trannies don't actually buy toys. BTW they look like shit desu just like the show:^)>>7643283>>7643285>>7643291>>7643299>>7643302
>>7650573You are fucking retarded.Anyway,best girl is getting her toy! Yay!
What are the chances of getting Bow's parents figures? I don't give a fuck about MotU origins,it looks like shit but I love Netflix She Ra so much. I hope we get Scorpia and Hordak soon.
>>7650579His parents are fucking based bro
>>7650588>broDid you just assume my gender?
>>7650573You really are an asshole huh?
>>7650272Is Beast Man's yelllow armor an homage to anoter figure? I can't place it. I hope those are 5 packs with Fisto, Stinkor and the like. I'm disappointed we got the cat looking head for Mer-Man but I hope we'll get a better head later on down the line.
>>7649753I think you're very wrong about all this. The big dog of kids toy lines are tmnt, Ben 10, and transformers. Marvel legends is mostly bigger amongst older fans, parents are not going to drop 20 bucks a figure when they could buy their kids the basic 5 inch marvel figures. Ere go, these figures are in that 5 inch kid scale and share playmates styled articulation. I'm not at all surprised this line will hit stores.
>>7649284Does skeletor have fucking lightpiping? If so, that's totally fucking wizard .
>>7650577>You are fucking retarded.I'm not the one watching Dyke-Ra:^)So now you tranny use the photos I linked to, proving you don't give a jack shit about toys...enjoy your shitty cheap doll. >>7650596You are really butthurt huh?

LEAKS! LEAKS! LEAKS!
netflix shera is pure garbage
>>7650820>he has a mustacheFUCKING DAMN YOU MATTEL I WANT THIS FUCKING LINE TO GET CANCELLED RIGHT NOW HOW THE HELL CAN YOU FUCK IT UP SO BAD THIS FUCKING SUCKS AND ITS TRASH I HOPE IT FLOPS HARD AND KILLS THE FRANCHISE FOR GOODEvil Lyn looks great tho
He Man 200x is pure garbage
>we get females in originsThis is about to get pervert and I like it
@7650809Fuck off troll>>7650823Based and redpilled>>7650828Cringe and bluepilled>>7650820>>7650824>>he has a mustacheAnd that's look better desu>Evil Lyn looks greatI agree, I need her and Skeletor
>>7650828at least 200x had toylines at the beginning of the first season. netflix is also loosing money and will go defunct by the end of 2020 now that the office and friends have been pulled from their service
>go to bed thread is fine everyone having a good time excited for todays reveals>wake up and cancer has been injected into it
>>7650876This is why I think nu-ra should be forced into it's own containment general, they're going to come into this general and piggy back onto us. Their toys are literal dolls, mattel acknowledges them as separate brands, and adam isnt even in nu-ra, let them make their own thread.
>>7650879>I think nu-ra should be forced into it's own containment generalI agree though it probably wouldn't last because they're so few of them. >Their toys are literal dolls,You think those retards even know the difference? They didn't even know their shitty dolls were already released because they don't collect toys. The trannies also tried to leech on the fashion doll thread.
What are the chances we get figures of them MotU general?
I need this in my life
Adora is CUTE!
I wish she was a little bigger,I cannot believe that Mattel is still against body positivity
>>7650820Yes! They look great! Definitely gonna get most of these, but I’m especially stoked for Evil Lyn as I never got her original figure and this new one looks so good.
>>7650820Evil Lyn and Teela are the fat man's fantasy,sexist body design to shame women and objectify them. I hope Origins gets cancelled.Anyway,Bow is PHENOMENAL! I love all the details on him.
>>7650915Wtf is wrong with your fingers, jesus.
>>7650902>>7650903>>7650905>>7650915>Anyway,Bow is PHENOMENAL!Said like a virtue signaling tranny who never bought a toy in his life. I hope you die from diabetes but just in case >>7650918>>7650922Talk about MOTU or gtfo
>>7650918Why are you so rude?Thats not me dumbass and the guy looks good no matter what,yoy are just jealaous>>7650876You are stupid,the thread was fine before the she ra hater retard came in and ruined all the fun! Fuck off
>>7650934Fuck off newfag, you ruined the the thread of your irrelevant spamming of Dyke-Ra.
>>7650934>Thats not me dumbass and the guy looks good no matter what>you are jealous over a dumb dumb drawingfuck your new show, the original is fine. go be toxic elsewhere if you can't handle boomers kept the fandom alive while you were busy fortnite dancing during recess.
>>7650943She ras MotU dumbassi
>>7650942You need to go back
>>7650942She-Ra will be phased out in a few years while Power Con will go strong with the classic design, classic toys that continue to receive updates, and the Legendary 4 Horsemen giving us great product.
>>7650947>dumbassiIt isn't you retareded newfag
>>7650260>Sony is releasing a movie>Origins will eventually include new movie designs>Pre-movie hype will cause stores to glut their shelves with movie figures>over abundance will lead to shelf warming and the line will die before they get to the more unique designs
>>7650933>Talk about MOTU or gtfoThe spinster's claw said while talking about PoP
I hope you are all happy. She Ra General:>>7650967>>7650967>>7650967
So,what are the chances of getting a Hordak doll in the She Ra line?
>>7650915Now I know why the teaser shots were all close ups of individual details. The overall design of these are ugly as fuck. The proportions are odd, the expressions look derpy, and the quality of the clothing looks tacky as fuck. 1.5/10 because Catra looks salvageable, maybe.
>>7650879Fuck containment general. They shit up /co/ too. If the show doesn't get cancelled first, they should get a board like tiny horses did.
>>7650988Butthurt too much?
>>7650988>They shit up /co/ too. They mostly keep bumping their low numbered garabge threads, I didn't see any of their cancer there lately...guess the few of them decided to leech now on /toy/.>If the show doesn't get cancelled firstI wish and maybe than She-Ra will get the reboot she deserved.
>>7650820I was trying to get excited about these, but desu I'd rather just collect the original vintage line.
>>7651033You have shit taste then
>>7651033Is that a motherfucking Full Metal Alchemist reference?
New thread: >>7651136>>7651136>>7651136
>>7651070No, they're playing rock paper scissors. But Fisto always loses.
>>7651051>>7651119The toys lose some of their appeal without the action features and gimmicks. This was the only line I recall as a child where the gimmicks weren't obtrusive of the figure itself.
>>7650820>no knife in boot
