https://youtu.be/5cLy0QeqdhAPolloi reviewed the vintage head skeletor and heman
A weapon to surpass metal gear!
>>9176773>>9176779Aw, shit...please no. I LIKED the red pupil/red sclera...and I only just got Hordak when he came in stock last week
>>9176943Follow up questions to this:Is EVERYONE getting Hordaks like this?And are the Hordaks that look like this the ones included in full wave 4 purchases, or the individual figures, or both?I'm just wondering, if I bought the individual Hordak by itself if there's any chance I'll receive the version I've been wanting, or if I should just cancel and get no Hordak
Re-did the Origins shelvesGoing to be hard to fit the rest in these 3/4 shelves without making it look like a clusterfuck
>>9176264>So the Teela Man At Arms thing. Instead of the angle they went, would a hybrid of her and Duncan's costumes worked? Like a white body suit, red/maroon female version of the armor? Maybe work in a snake theme or falcon theme?I dig it. Maybe make the armour an orange hue with more blue accents, that way it's reminiscent of Man-at-Arms, but starts working in Sorceress' colour scheme.
>>9176773>>9176779The red pupil thing is more accurate to the show, but I think I prefer the full red.>>9176943If you get one with the full red eyes, you could go over that raised bit just under them with a Gundam marker. Probably achieve the Filmation look. I'm a little tempted to do that myself.
I want Mattel Creations to do the other motu lady dolls they had prototypes for several characters.
>>9177037Monster High Evil-Lyn Now.
>>9177037>>9177070I'll take an Octavia please
>>9177037While I'd love to see these, I'd hate (maybe love) to see the shitfit about "unrealistic body standards for girls" these dolls would produce.
>>9176894So how do we strike back now that Kevin Smith has ruined He-Man?
>>9177273maybe watch it first before you grab your pitchfork
>>9177282Pirated I hope. Don't give the fucker views.
So in addition to Stratos and Moss Man, Classics used Beast Man's furry limbs to make Plundor, Chief Carnivus and mortally-wounded Hank McCoy. Am I missing anyone?
>>9177296You got it, I'm Kevin Smith. I can go on dozens and dozens of media sources to say what i want. But instead i've decided to come to the /toy/ board of fucking 4chan to respond to individual posts. i'm not at all a guy who prays that against all odds that the show is actual good. a guy who thinks maybe instead of postulating about a show none of us have seen yet maybe we can keep the doom and gloom down to a dull roar.you have figured it out my friend, you are truly brilliant
>>9177305Yeah, honestly, sounds like what you'd do, you Thinner wasting away faggot.
I AM SO GREAT I AM SO GREATEVERYBODY LOVES MEI AM SO GREAT
>>9177309Fine you caught menow I'm going to write another season of revelations. where i kill off all the male characters and eventually merge the show with nu-rai will have mattel kill off the origins line and start making the 5poa figures for the lineall because of you not letting me hide on 4chansmootchy boochie asshole
>>9177282Thanks for being sensible. This place desperately needs an injection of that since becoming org 2.0. And also the sarcasm directed towards people who says things like 'hi kevin'.
>>9177357Why are you replying to yourself? It doesn't make you look any less like a bootlicking faggot.
I hope BBTS gets wave 5 in soon. I cancelled my Evil-Lyn 2.0 figure because I decided I wanted the whole wave and it's still sitting in pre-order.
Does this mean Mattel are starting Matty Collecter back up?
>>9177373I see you're new to the board Kevin. Too bad you're retarded bud.
>>9177371No, they just had the poll on their site. Figure will be available for preorder whereever Orgins are being sold.
Post origins photography>>9176902Thanks .org!
>>9177273Kevin Smith hasn't ruined anything. Even if the Revelations turns out to be garbage, you still have all of the old stuff, and most importantly YOUR memories of the old stuff. I will never understand the "this ruined my childhood" meme.
>>9177414Except he does damage to the brand and it's already hard enough getting it going again. Fuck that.
>>9177414Even if it's not "ruined" it's still raped.And rape is bad, unless the person deserves it as Redo of Healer showed.
Yeah, this is the first new he-man show in 20 years. If it’s not good, the chances of origins getting around to the figures we want goes down, no new fans, Smith will win either way though.
>>9177436It's a Netflix exclusive. That's not a brand-building move. It's supplemental at best.
>>9177412I feel compelled to get a duncan
>>9177436>No new fans I'm Nineteen-years-old (soon to be twenty, unfortunately) and my dad has been trying to get me into He-man into years. The aesthetic has always be a huge turn off for me so I just wrote it off. The new Evil-Lyn design is what caught my attention and I've been looking into He-Man ever since. I planning on watching Revaltions with my dad when it comes out. TL; DR I don't think kids will find He-Man very appealing unless it shows up in Fornite or something. >>9177422SW and ST have gone through years of "brand damage" and they are fine. Nostalgia is a very strong poison. Even if this He-Man Show flops, as long as the toys do okay it will continue. Heck, even if the toys flop as well, Matel will not just let He-Man stay dead forever. >>9177423I have nothing to say other than >Redo of the Healer
https://youtu.be/T9CQRUx5B5AHere's a clip from IGN
>>9177449From what has been said in these threads, people would have preferred if the show was just this throughout, right? Campy, cheesy, etc. Comments like >>9177451 show me that people wouldn't be happy no matter what.
>>9177457>hype up a show as hard core, edgy full on fucking while we're sleeping with each other WHILE eating each other out>be surprised when people laugh at how campy the action is when skeletor stands around doing nothing while heman throws his henchmen over board
>>9177459One of the first clips we've seen from this show was Skeletor fighting He-Man throwing spell after spell at him. This scene is obviously meant to be reminiscent of the old show.
>>9177449So he's literally just the Joker?
>>9177449If the whole show is like this I’ll be VERY happy. Seems like a flash back though.
I like to headcanon Skeletor as closeted brony
>>9177471Mark Hamill has one villain voice. It's why I wasn't stoked about the casting choice. It seems to be working out better than I expected, at least, but Skeletor is also apparently barely in the show at all, which is a way worse dealbreaker for me than any of the Teela shit.
>>9177459You haven't refuted his points. The shit about hyping it as edgy was one of the things that was none stop bitched about. Seeing something not edgy, in theory, should be a relief. If people are gonna flip flop now and go "hahaha, what's this faggot kiddy crap", that's just being malcontented
>>9177479>Nyeh heh heh heh hehehe heh! Trixie IS worst pone!
>>9177487Yeah, this clip as about as good as it gets. A little too much punching though.
>I am not nice
>>9177479>>9177496he likes alien space dogs you degenerate brony fucks
And so we wait. With bated breath. >will revelation be shit?>when will mosquitor be released?>will Duncan be blacked in the kid show for being ginger?>and most importantly... will BBTS ever fulfill our pre-orders?These answers, soon.
>>9177449Did anyone notice how Teela did most of the action, both underwater and when they got on the boat?
>>9177532blame the guy that wants to race bend every character
One thing I will say is that I think Filmation had better Mer-man henchmen design. I like the evil seahorse look
>>9177538too creative, needs to look generic so furries can cosplay as
Masterverse Skeletor is alright. Yeah he's got lots of articulation but I'm not into the sculpt and proportions something feels of to me. I also don't like how the harness, cape, and shoulder pads were done. Also the havoc staff is heavy for him to hold.
>>9177558He looks like a rodent
>>9177523If Teela is blacked, Duncan will not beBut if Teela is just "ambiguous brown", Duncan may be blacked
>>9177449Mark Hamil has really good range as a VA, why does Skeletor sound like the Joker? >>9177532Man At Arms saved both of them, though.
>>9177444Your dubs and trips are an omen.
>>9177604>Mark Hamil has really good range as a VA, why does Skeletor sound like the JokerAt best the voice director pushed it, at worse for how little Mark was in the series he might have phoned in his performance
>>9177449This is all I wanted out of the show. They had it. They really had it.
>>9176894>op picMan, if Mosquitor actually WAS in Revelations with Blast Attak and Scareglow, that'd be phenomenal, "Muh Horde" be damned.
>>9177558Yeah, I'm a little annoyed how the shoulder pads are a separate piece, it keeps moving around when posing him. Not a bad figure, but Evil Lyn is my favorite from the wave.
>>9177558>>9177581I break your door inI sneak in the basementIt is my home nowBut you never find outCause I am sneakyI am the rat manI go up at nightAnd eat your cheese!Aaaah!But one day you find out there is a rat man inside the basement and you call the copsBut the cops don't take it seriouslySo you call the Ghöüstbusteirs™ instead!The Ghöüstbusteirs™Are ill-equippedThey only have ghost busting weaponsBut they should’ve brought a shotgunBut I have a gun so I kill them insteadOh no, it's murder!
>>9177621He had less screen time in Hero Factory and he still did a good job.
>>9177538Yeah, those guys are cool
>>9177636Really like this headsculpt
>>9177654I like it too but is there an alternative body I could put it on with decent skin match?
>>9177604Yeah, but then Teela dispatches two Henchmen underwater, including one that He-Man was having trouble with. Then she jumps on the ship and is fighting multiple people, while He-Man just tosses aside one, as if she does all the work while He-Man takes the credit while he talks to Skeletor.
>>9177581>But if Teela is just "ambiguous brown",Teela Brown, Asian He-Man, neurotic telepathic Cringer and, uh... Modulok? will be our heroes.
>>9177558>>9177565It looks like he is wearing a skeleton mask rather than having a skull head
>>9177666That's it. Well said.
>>9177666Devil trips.Reaper from overwatch?
>>9177666>It looks like he is wearing a skeleton mask rather than having a skull headMotU Shao Khan when?
How many skin colors do Eternians come in?Cartoons and 21st century comics have always declined to make Evil-Lyn a yellow person, but Spikor is a purple person. There's also the Gar, but they're supposed to be dark elves rather than humans.
>>9177700I always chose to believe Eternia produced multiple convergently evolved sapien species. Kind of like if all of humanity's sibling species survived into the modern day in addition to sapient strains of other animals.
>>9177673They already made one.It's called Triple H.
>>9177662>Then she jumps on the ship and is fighting multiple people, while He-Man just tosses aside oneYou're making shit up to justify being madWhat actually happened:Man-at-Arms shoots one off TeelaTeela punches the other oneHe-man having trouble is presumably the cuffs he has onMan-at-Arms shoots cuffs.One fish let's go and is stunned by MAA shot, Teela kicks that oneHe-man tosses the one that didn't let goGet on boat, Teela punches Evil-lyn, MAA punches Mer-man, He-man tosses henchmen at Skeletor.There was no "Teela fighting multiples while He-man takes credit", He-man's struggle was because of magic cuffs, and the under water one had already let go and was stunned when Teela "helped", and MAA did just as much as Teela did.I'm sure I'll get called an apologist or a shill, but at least get mad about things that actually happen
>>9177448you're ruining our childhood
>>9177777These people can't be reasoned with, and they'll make shit up to fit their agenda. They're just as bad as the people on the other sides of these discussions who make shit up to fit their other agendas, like when the first trailer came out, how some were acting like this was gonna be some manly man show, or saying that the rainbow transformation should make He-Man gay. Bunch of idiots on all sides of these discussions.
>>9177737Cool idea>Beast Man is like a red-haired Neanderthal and Stratos one who's old enough to have gone gray
>>9177457I would absolutely love if the entire show was like this.
>>9177636I'm not very familiar with the original cartoon and people said his giant bubble wand comes from that. So what's the deal with it?
>>9177639Fren Okro figure when?
>>9177558>but I'm not into the sculpt and proportions something feels of to me.It's the head. It's too small and throws everything out of whack.
>>9177457If we didn't know or had the garbage time skip we'd be singing a different tune. The clip we got isn't very impressive or much to go by.
>>9177820Viking hat trollan never.
>>9177818Thr wand is the Shaping Staff. It can transform anything into anything elseEvil-lyn used it to turn herself and Beast Man into Majestra and King Randor, and turned the real King Randor into a goat. In Revelations, Skeletor uses it to turn into Spikor
>>9177847Can't wait to pick these fuckers up for $10
>>9177305That sounds exactly like what Kevin Smith would say tho.
>>9177847Seeing this and knowing the scalpers who made originally getting the set a pain are now stuck with unsellable stock makes my dick so hard.
>>9177847Good. I see fuckers on IG trying to sell just Kronos for 25 bucks. I hope the scalpers get stuck sitting on their worthless inventory.
>>917784731 sets. Who's gonna build a Gar army?
>>9177479I like to intermingle my toys as well, so He-man is constantly defending and rescuing tiny horses from Snakemen.
>>9177876Looks like it's time to add kevin smiith to the filter
So, Entertainment Earth just put up preorders for the Mega Construx advent calendar.
>>9177898what are they preordering? the potential 2022 version?the official word is that it's canceled this year
>>9177662Ehhhh...I can see the underwater part...As He-Man got his handcuffs broken I expected him to hit his two captors against each other, but instead Teela came over and beat one of them which felt kinda unnecessary.Other than that you are just seeing things. Up on the boat Teela beat Evil-Lyn while He-Man beat a henchman AND Skeletor.
>>9177654>>9177653Would love to see more picson the fence about evil lyn for the master verse line
>>9177909Teela on the boat is showing her doing more fighting also. All He-Man does is throw one person and then start quipping while she's fighting. The underwater part where she kicks the guy who's restraining He-Man right after He-Man is already freed really bugged me. Why didn't He-Man do more fighting?
>>9177920Jesus frick it's just a short clip. You're being way too autistic about this. Just wait for the 23rd and the type your essay.
>>9177920>Teela on the boat is showing her doing more fighting alsoExcept it they don't show that.They show her kick Evil-lyn, while MAA punches Mer-man and we see NO OTHER FIGHTING besides He-man throwing the henchman. You're making shit up or seeing things
>>9177941>Except it Don't care, you made it clear you're going to defend it no matter what, even though you acknowledged the underwater moment where Teela rescues He-Man was unnecessary. >>9177925So, I can't have an opinion on what I watched? Get fucked you're not the boss of me.
>>9177944If you're unwilling to be open for actual discourse, then no. You don't get to just spout off your opinion.
I wish he came with another head with a more stoic or gritting his teeth expression, but I'm pretty happy with this He-Man.
>>9177481He has Joker, Fire Lord, and guy from english dub of Castle in the Sky.His Skeletor sounds like Joker with a bit of Not Skeletor from SRMTHFG.>>9177037Now those are some dollies!>>9177700What if it's magic that changed some of their skin color? In Elder Scrolls the Dunmer were originally yellow like the altmer and dwemer, but the daedric princes turned them blue/gray at some point.>>9177737That's a solid theory.
>>9177953>He has Joker, Fire Lord, and guy from english dub of Castle in the Sky.I wish Skeletor was the Fire Lord in this cartoon.
>>9177903>tripfaggotNo one cares.
>>9177959He seizes Castle Grayskull and he and yellow Evil-Lyn could make some green heirs for the good guys to fight.
Does anybody have the SKU or UPC barcodes for the MOTU revelations action figures. Been trying to find them at Walmart but no go.
Found a whole pile of RoE while visiting my family down south. So behold Blacklight Skeletor and regular Keldor.This skeletor head is by far the best and I'm glad I held out on getting one.
>>9177995Being Kronis is suffering.
>>9177961lots of people care about the advent calendar. them officially canceling it sucks.So then what is the preorder for?no one is asking you to care about it or me, so your opinion is noted and disregarded.
>>9177995I agree, skeletor's head on the kronis body looks great. looks really good with skeletor's armor too
>>9177903That's the curious thing, which is why I posted it. Anyway, I bit since they only charge when they ship, so it can't hurt to try and get my foot in the door in case something happened behind the scenese. They were also the only ones to do that Dino Riders set, also from Mattel.
>>9178005>his fucking faceWhat were they thinking?
>>9178039yeah it's there.but you make a good point no harm in POing it if they don't charge right now.Thanks anon. Never used the site are they reliable?
>>9178054I only ever used them for that little Dino Riders set, but they came through.
>contacted customer service and it’s real. It’s actually up for pre-order, and not a mistakeChristmas is saved boys
>>9178040He shit his pants but he doesn't wanna admit it. He wishes he could turn back time. Wish we could turn back time tothe good old days when our momma sang us to sleep.
New thread theme now that the advent calendar is confirmedhttps://youtu.be/cUZNXgIXM1c
>>9178062>>9178054>>9178039Good call. Ordered one too just in case. I figure there's no downside.
>>9178062Fuck Yeah!not even questioning how the fuck this happened as long as we get out holiday masters
>>9178064The origin of how Kronis became Crap Drawers
>>9178073No one fucking cares trip faggot
>>9178080We like the tripguy way more than you anon
>>9178086>We like the tripguy way more than you anonIndeed
I preordered two so I can help out someone who missed it once they're delivered to my house... if it's real rather than getting canceled.
>>9178110I bought two to keep one mint on card... but if there's lots of fellas who couldn't get one I'll be willing to pass one on as well. Fuck scalpers.
>>9177847My Target only had three Skeletors on a peg and I'm seething like hell looking at this
>>9178115you can have them send it to your store for free, that's what i did
>>9177946Im going with the long hair, i know it kinda makes her more "generic" but the staff still indicates who she is. And im kinda bored with my current display so a splash of femininity wont hurt me any.
Did anybody else have Buzz Saw Hordak hit their POL out of nowhere?
>>9178138He just hit my prostate too.
>>9178138yep. The other day I had an email that BA He-Man was coming but I guess Buzz Saw beat him to the punch. Hope it's got okay eyes.
>>9177952Masterverse figures just look so shitty to me. Something about them jus feels… off.
>>9178145They didn't crudely photoshop the BS Hordak photos to have solid red eyes like they did with the new standard Hordak shipment so it looks like we're fucked with respect to the eyes. That, or they haven't gotten around to it yet.
>>9177847Fuck. I can't even buy this only and ship it to a buddy of mine in the US. I tried. Also holy shit trying to delete my Target account afterward was a nightmare, how do you people live like that?
>>9177952Third party heads when?
>>9178158Modern Americans just bend over and take whatever's given to them. Their oligarchical masters haven't broken their wills, but rather ingeniously, made them think their wills are the same as theirs instead, see. That's the secret to their success.
>>9178148I think it's because their chests aren't broad enough they need bigger buffer torsos
>>9178148I keep saying it's the small heads, but I think >>9178168Is also onto something. It looks like they getting smaller as you go up the body.
>>9178145>>9178150>Hordak sitting in PoL>if I ship, will get buyers remorse if it doesn't have the eye style I want>if I cancel and take my chances on waiting to find it in the wild, run risk of FOMO if I never find one in the wild>only 3rd option is buy from a scalper on eBay so I can verify that he has the eye type I want before purchasingA part of me feels it would be just easier to decide not to get Hordak at all
>>9178167The US needs another civil war or revolution or SOMETHING. Holy Shit.
>>9178172just learn how to paint
>>9178172I just want Skeletor to have a scheming buddy so I'm taking the plunge. I'll let you know how the eyes turn out.
>>9178186That's me after too much Mexican
>>9177393Thank heck for that if its turns true, im cautiously optimistic of the revelation figures and dont want to miss scareglow. Im sick of exclusives darn it.
>>9178148They seem kinda soulless because atm they're just cash-ins for a poorly conceived streaming series and the proportions and faces are just odd. He-Man looks like Owen Wilson.Origins is full of soul but has terrible distribution which leads me to constantly stress out I'll miss out on one.
>>9178202I just want a masterverse stinkor with a 200x style head
>>9178202>He-Man looks like Owen Wilson.I wouldn't mind this at all if one of the Heroic Warriors was Jackie Chan.They need an Asian anyway.
Wait...i thought you guys were just getting BS Hordak in your PoLs, but he's actually IN STOCK now too? Fuck it then, it that case idgaf what eye style standard Hordak has because I'm just gonna use a BS head regardless
>>9178209Jackie Chan as Jitsu!
>>9178167You act as though the rest of the planet isnt gimped, bound, gagged, and zogged.
Skeletor is NOT evil. He is just a mean dude.
>>9178273Friendly reminder that Castle Grayskull is Keldor’s birthright
>>9178273>Skeletor is NOT evil. He is just a mean dude.A mean enough dude to rescue President Randor from the Ninjor?
>>9178276Just a reminder that Keldor is a BITCH NIGGA
>>9178276imagine just getting free shit for being born lol
>>9177532Man At Arms got most of the action on that clip.
>>9178293That's not where nipples go. That must be Faker.
Who got most of the action in this clip?https://youtu.be/dWH8d1Ao3s0?t=134
>>9178302>That's not where nipples go.It is on Eternia
>>9178305The way that cat girl eying him, I think Adam about to get the most action
>>9178325>>9178305Fuck, forgot to post picture with that.
>>9178305Adam probably loves being handled by Teela.
>>9178072And to add to the mystery, BBTS had the set up for preorder for about an hour and now the page has been taken down.
>>9178305Post your toys.
>>9178341>>9178305Damn right he does, Teela is going to gentle femdom him all the way to the queen’s throne. She’s playing the long game.
>>9178330Not only is a cat woman eyeing him, but Man-E-Faces is in Revelation!

Is having Mark Hamill essentially bad luck at this rate?>Killing Joke movie>The Last Jedi>Kingdom Hearts 3Now this
>>9178418I’m getting pretty sick of his Joker voice I’ll tell you that
>>9178418>Killing JokeNot bad, but it shouldn't have focused so much on Batgirl. >The Last JediI like the evolution of his character; going from a hopeful hero to a miserable, defeated, old man. It's just HOW they did it that needed some work. >Kingdom Hearts 3Can't comment on this because I have never played KH. I'm probably too old for it now.
>>9178404Still up on EE, my email from them says it’s not going down. We’ll see.
>>9177371So wait...tons of people on .Org said they were voting for Minicomic Tri-Klops because they would be able to make a custom Classics version. Have any of them tried putting Origins armor on a Classics figure? It's literally not possible. Why did they think that would change for the Minicomic Tri-Klops armor?
>>9178494I don’t know if the WWE figures were out yet, but those use classics armor so it’s not ridiculous to assume backwards compatibility. Forever fuck .org for being a broken website with stupid boomers.
sold out, how many units do you think they were allowed?
>>9178553Oh, well. Didn't cost me anything except a couple minutes of time.Guess they had it set to automatically update the site months ago and it flew under their radars that it was cancelled.
>>9177777Teela almost frees herself before Maa even shows up. That other anon is correct and it is very subtle
>>9178576She's the captain of the guard, being held by 2 random henchmen and being encumbered by nothing else (like a magic jewel that saps her strength). If this was Stratos or MAA or any of the other Masters I bet this would be a non-issue. This is very clearly a 'Revelation Teela' issue rather than anything else. If this was the Filmation I bet that'd also be a non-issue.
>>9178553>>9178561didn't get a cancelled email yet ... but I'm not holding out hope damn ... oh wellat lest the next series releases in 8 days
>>9178598Friday 07/23. That's 3 days. Or is it later where you are?
>>9178553Maybe they were testing how many orders they would hypothetically get if there was a release?
>>9177847I almost feel like army building Kronos and Keldors (into Minicomic Skeletor's people)
>>9178606i'm in the us, must just be amazon
cancelled again. what’s going on over there? Customer service told me it wasn’t a fuck up but here we are
>>9178598Ah, sorry, my bad. My brain has been fried by spending a good chunk of the day at the RMV, and when you said "series", my first thought was Revelation. Hurpadurp.
>>9178591I know you are trying to make this a le sexism thing but trust me it isn't. People would complain if it was anyone else. The biggest problem is they are claiming it is a continuation of classic heman and that they will respect the source material when they clearly don't. Nobody would have a problem if they went you know what it's teela and they motu. We want to focus on her. Instead they do underhanded shit like this.
Thanks, Mattel. Incompetence on EE’s part.
>>9178305Just like my Japanese animes...
Anyone got pics of the scare glo?
>the realization that with wave 4 and BS Hordak coming in stock and the email notification that my BAs are coming this week, I am officially all caught up on everything released that I actually wanted from OriginsNo more huntingNo more griping and getting impatientAll that's left is to sit back and wait until whenever Mosquitor and Webstor actually get released.This has been a pretty based week
>>9178691Got a direct link to that?
>>9178816it's sold out but sure https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08V3KG5PN/
>advent calendar cancelled again>fucking every figure seemingly has a running change or variants or sloppy paint, so I have to hunt each of those down AGAIN>revelation is still going to be shitWhy am I even here
>>9178829Shut the fuck up
>>9178847Do really need a constant stream of new stuff? You could always have fun with what you have.
Quick poll, and I want you to be honest:Taking everything into account, Origins, MCX, Revelations, Masterverse, the upcoming CGI and whatever else, how do you currently feel about the MotU brand?Positive and optimistic, or negative and pessimistic?
>>9178877very neutral desu. Origins is a good revival, but also kind of niche and fucked over due to distribution being very bad in the U.S. It's a step up from nu-ra and the quiet post Super-7 period and whatever happened between MYP and Classics.It's really hard to tell what the future holds especially with the supposed Mattel License expiring. All the new shows look kinda suck though.
>>9178829Ah, damn. Well, all I want are Man-E-Faces and Trap-Jaw, so I guess I'll just keep an eye out for them in the wild.
>>9178877Optimistic, we have kick ass toys and that lasts longer than any show
>>9178877I don't think it's going to catch on at this point, and Revelation was something that could have gotten people back into it, but I'm anticipating it to be a flop. The CGI series I'm expecting to be worse and to not catch on with children and fans to hate it more than Revelation.I wonder if Matty Collector returning could be slightly helpful with keeping Origins alive in case things flop.
>>9178877Negative and pessimistic. Being in my corner of the fandom has always been an exercise in futility, pain and suffering, and after these latest revivals, I'm being led to believe that this will never change. But what do I know? I'm only a Trollafag.
>>9178898What mattel license? Mattel is he man. How can a license expire?
>>9178909>The CGI series I'm expecting to be worseNow, see, I have the opposite opinion. I don't know why, but I just have this feeling that the show is gonna be a real dark horse and catch us off guard in the wake of Revelations.
>>9178877Negative. Origins are fun but distribution is frustrating. Even if they make the entire vintage line and more, the playsets will be quite limited.With Mega Construx the playset possibilities are unlimited even if I have to build something like the Eternia playset from scratch, but they're refusing to make as many characters as Origins despite having a two-year head start.Masterverse? I only want to collect one large scale.Revelation? A 100-minute miniseries dropping every 6 months that's uglified the female characters? Pretty meh even if it wasn't Kevin Smith.CGI kids' cartoon? I dunno; if today's 5-7 year-olds like it that'll be good, but the main line for it looks like those giant 5POA Marvel Titan Heroes kiddos inexplicably like.
Teela running change with new knees
>>9179019Aw shit, sweet. Mine have reversed feet so I need a new one anyway.
>>9179044Pick one up for me, would ya, pal?
>>9178943Universal owns it in 2023.
>>9179044According to brickseek, one of the three Targets in my city has these now.Prrrobably not ~56, but I guess I'll go see.
>>9179070Isn't that only speculation brought forward by Scott "Faggot" Neitlich?
>>9179044It's the Storm Thunderbird two pack all over again. And if my local Target's response is the same, I'll never see Origins figures again outside of a single case dropping maybe monthly.
>>9179044Straight up, there needs to be a 200x-style re-distribution effort for these.
>>9179019New knees wave 1 Evil-lyn when?
>>9178847Why do you need very single figure? Man the toy community is really fucked in the head. I'm glad I spent time here before getting into his hobby. Don't want to become a hoarder aspie
>>9178871>>9179273No, I don't, but the newer She-Ra just looks so much better than the first release after TWO running changes. It's frustrating. After sitting on it for a while I'm probably not going to bother tracking down a new Teela or Lyn unless I see it in stores, but you have to admit the running change he-man and skeletor are annoying
>>9178877Neutral to Pessimistic, coming from the US side of things.Origins has the fanbase really fired up, despite the garbage distribution. MCX is a big disappointment. They had a great start, and for a while things were flying off the shelves. Now it feels like things have been slowed to a crawl, with Origins moving/releasing quicker. The past year plus feels like it is going out with a whimper. Masterverse looks cool, but the future releases will determine how it does. I only have Skelegod, who is pretty "ok" as figures go. I am trying to stay "open" to Revelations. I will give it a watch, and make my determination after that. I really hope the new CGI show does well, but I expect it to flop with kids. Kids don't care about this stuff.Overall, Pessimistic, but still hoping to be surprised.
>>9177523I mean I got an email for Wave 2 and Buzzsaw. And Buzz in already. Maybe they just hate you?
>>9177665>a larry niven jokeJesus
>>9178877optimistic, I only collect origins and MCX. I hope these 2 lines can continue but they just keep making more on top of them.
>>9177871Same, I bought one regular price but I want 3 more Kronis for being Skeletroopers to go against MaA and his guards.
>>9179329>optimistic, I only collect origins and MCX.So do I. I'm not feeling optimistic because it's looking like MCX is canceled: the amazing 2022 line (a couple of construction sets and a wave of carded figures) will be shown and then canceled like the Advent Calendar.
>>9179411I should clarify I meant optimistic for Origins. With MCX we're at least getting a last wave with some new molds. I might go on to make some customs for the line but we're otherwise looking at the end.
Thoughts on Sy-Klone?How much do you like his design?Do you care about his connection to Skeletor's mother started but not explained by the 200X cartoon?
>>9177812Funny enough this is an out of MOTU headcanon I have between those two.Like Stratos is Kranky Kong and Beastman is Donkey and constantly has to hear of Stratos adventures
>>9177448Cool story Kevin
Scare Glow's cape and head on backwards with Mer-Man make a good Mysterio.
>>9179517Phish-Bonez, the Friendly Ghost of Mer-Man!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdWsSYjBiRwPixel Dan got the Revelation Scare Glow early thanks to Mattel. The review's not live yet but I just saw it in his MOTU playlist.
>>9179645I think what makes him look off is that he's black with the bones painted on instead of white with black bones painted on.
So, after the Spanish retailer leaks what else does origins have most parts for now?Mekaneck, Randor, Spikor, Whiplash, mossman, maybe Snout Spout? Grizzlor is already confirmed.Aside from variants like Terror Claws Skeletor and Flying Fists He-Man, I’m hoping future waves aren’t too bogged down with shit minicomic repaints.
>>9179673If we get 1 to 2 mini comic repaints, 1 brand new guy with lots of new tooling, and either repack or running change of an older figure that might work.
>>9179684>>9179673I forgot battle armor faker, pink armor faker, red beast man, Zodak, Horde zombie he-man, Anti-eternia anyone, Wundarr, and orange Ram Man are also all on the table for easy release. Choose wisely Mattel.
>>9179651yeah fuck this.
>>9179694Give me Wundarr or give me death.
>you will never be an evil skeleton wizardWhy live? The kids who grew up idolizing He-Man could at least realistically get really buff and protect the weak and downtrodden. What about us?
>>9179712just survive an acid attack anon its that easy
>>9179712But anon, you're already a skelly inside, just learn a couple of magic tricks and be a meanie by doing stuff like not recycling your trash.
>>9179700Can I fuck myself AND love Orko?
>>9179044such a nice 2 pack.I'm glad I scalped one of mine back when they first dropped, almost want to get another set on clearance just to have one alcala skeletor and one keldor
Got the letter from bbts - Buzzsaw Hordak is in my pile of loot. I will be shooting buzz saws out my ass in no time.Also a complete wave 2. Those January pre-orders are finally showing up.
>>9178877Checkin' those double dubs.I feel optimistic. Has there been this much buzz around the brand since the 80s?
>>9179948>January Pre-ordersFuck Anon, almost 6 months later? Everyone on the other threads i browse keeps telling me to go fully online and stop hunting IRL because you have a better chance due to shit distribution, but my undying autism has led to to find every wave the morning they drop at Target.I want the assured guarantee of getting my stuff, but I cant wait that long.
>>9179997Target has never stocked Wave 2 while Walmart threw maybe four boxes to each store. It's the one wave not many have.
>>9179997I managed to snag everything except for Orko and Scare Glow by being patient and checking Wal-Mart and Toy R Us weekly.BBTS was the safety net in case I couldn't find anything.
>>9179044Retroblasting was wrong???
>>9179673>Mekaneck, Randor, Spikor, Whiplash, mossman, maybe Snout Spout? Grizzlor is already confirmed.Are we talking vintage only? Because Kobra Khan as well. Uses Skeletor arms and legs.Conceivably Tunglashor can reuse existing groin, thighs and biceps.Now, if you're open to none vintage, they also have parts reuse for Vultak, Batros, Icer, Strongarm, Plundor maybe Fang Man and various female characters with Teela and She-ra parts.
>>9180010>>9180013I almost forgot about Wal-Mart because aside from Wave 2 (which i found the full wave on a whim back, and saw at least one more time but never bought Orko) they have only had the Standard 4 items (Sleds, Cats, Heman, Skeletor). I'm not interested in masterverse but did snag Skelegod.This all took place within Brevard County, FL.
>>9179684I like the way their colors contrast.Mer-man and Tung make an aesthetically pleasing duo
>>9180016>Retroblasting was wrongIs water wet?
>>9180054Brevard is a cess pit. I don't know what more you would expect.
>>9180229They're swapped so the left foot is clearly on the right, vice versa
>>9180233You can't just boil and pop 'em?
>>9179705he-man's voice is going to take some getting used to. mark hamil's as skeletor while not a match for the old show sounds similar to the 200x series.so it doesn't sound jarringHe-man though sounds like neither the old show or the 200x show.
Wow, Stinkor pre-order sold-out. You guys work fast. Glad he's not a character I'm interested in. https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/145990
>>9180258He's missing the reverb that He-Man had in the original series, but he seems to match cadence pretty well.
>>9180259All the wave 6 preorders are sold out and have been for a while
I didn't realise that the Eternian guard came with armour for the right arm. Gonna have to grab that to make a more Filmation accurate Man-at-Arms.
>>9179705Man-at-Arms face mask is so cool. I hope we get a figure with that head.
You know what might be a near idea? When they release stuff like Tower Tools, Stilt Stalker, Scubattack, Cliff Climber, if thry made some new OC characters (kind of like when Classics made Sky High to go with the Sky Sled) and released them on a deluxe figure card.
>>9180268Damn it, mustve had my head in the sand to miss it this hard. Guess ill wait.
Drinking game: take a shot every time one of your Classics or Origins figures falls forwards flat on its face without any stimulus
>>9180389I've actually never really had that problem with OriginsNow Classics on the other hand....
>>9180397There's not some kind of guide to making them stand up, is there? I thought I was just stupid and incapable of figuring out how to make toys stay upright, which children can presumably handle just fine.
>>9179712Just ask your local Pakistani to throw acid in your face. Such a lovely culture isn't it.https://news.yahoo.com/pakistani-college-student-survives-acid-171834124.html
>>9179517Oh shit you were in that other thread with that anime girl lmao
>>9180258I never cared for Cam Clarke's He-Man/King Grayskull. They sound sedated.
>>9180469He was spot on for Prince Adam though
>>9180473>He was spot on for Prince Adam thoughYes. He was spot on as a 16 year-old boy, while John Erwin's ~19 year-old bodybuilder sounded campy and nasal.
Those two gray plastic doodads on the bottom of the Land Shark's inner packaging aren't part of the toy, are they? Just obstacles to remove to get it out?
>>9180512Which doodads do you mean?I'll say yes, most likely it's just the stuff meant to hold it in place. Besides the main vehicles body, it's just the guns and tank treads as part of the toy
>>9180528Those were the ones. But it turns out I was given two right-side treads so the entire thing is wasted and I'm inconsolable. It took half a year for me to get this.
Have you guys ever noticed how 1987 was probably the darkest, dullest, least eye catching wave in terms of color.Sssqueeze and Twistoid are nice and bright, but then you look at Mosquitor, Blade, Ninjor and Scareglow and its a lot of black, and then Saurod, Snakeface and Blast Attak have really dulled colors.
>>9180624Poor Saurod doesn't deserve to be stuck with the other two mistakes from the movie line. >Lumpy dwarf>Human Man
>>9180630Fun fact: Blade COULD have been a monster man with make up, but the actor declined to sit through the make up. So they told him "if you don't do the monster effects, you have to shave bald"So he went bald
>>9179997I got my wave 2 months ago on january pre-order. I've also gotten my wave 3,4 and 5 from BBTS. Sounds like you have been cancelling pre-orders, making you a "delay" customer.
>SPOILERS ARE OUT FOR REVELATION!I REPEAT>SPOILERS ARE OUT FOR REVELATION!>SPOILERS ARE OUT FOR REVELATION!>SPOILERS ARE OUT FOR REVELATION!Kevin Smith kills off Prince Adam twice! He gets killed in episode 1 and Teela goes on a quest and brings him back from the after-life only for Skeletor to kill him in episode 5 and become Skelegod.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8aUszEMZr0&t=362s
>>9180718Stfu dude, why are you posting spoilers before the fucking show came out? Post the link if you want but don't post the spoilers here.
>>9180732Dilate. There's no way to spoiler something on toy and I gave you repeated spoiler warnings leading down to the text. If you read it, and didn't want to you're a retard. Everyone's going to be mad starting tomorrow at Midnight.
>>9180732You should be glad he does so you can avoid wasting your time watching it.I'd rather know ahead of time and avoid it rather than watch it and get mad
>>9180718I'm not surprised...To cheer some people up. The next wave of Eternia Minis is making its way through Target probably for the august reset. I couldn't find Orko or Clawful at the time.
>>9180736Are you stupid? There's no hidden spoilers on this board. Putting some green text above it doesn't change that words are just there. >>9180750Not everyone wants to let others dictate what they choose to watch based on a spoiler, let alone a spoiler they didn't ask for 2 days before the show comes out.
>>9180736You're fucking retarded and this board would be better without you and your kind.
>>9180757>There's no hidden spoilersI know that's what I said, that's why I said you were a retard.>>9180758>>>/lgbt/
>>9180755These are currently on sale at Canadian Walmarts for $5, and Orko and Clawful are around here and there. Got both of them cause they're cute. Also grabbed an Origins LOP Merman cause he's also cute.
>>9180732Holy fucking retard, you're on 4channel. No one fucking cares, this isn't reddit.
>>9180624Fuck you 1987 was made upOf mostly kino figures
>>9180790I didn't shit talk the figures.I said they're colors were duller. That's an observation, not a diss.
>>9180736>Everyone's going to be mad starting tomorrow at Midnight.Tomorrow at 3AM, you mean
So who here is actually going to like revelation? Will it flop harder than nu-ra with 0 rabid minority fans?
>>9180856Well, whenever they finish it. Kevin said they drop at midnight tomorrow
>>9180869He was talking about his fictitious stoner Californian time zone, not an American time zone.
>>9180867It's not going to flop as hard on account of She-Ra being the same characters in name only, but it will be trash, because of the misuse of the characters..
>>9180624>glow-in-the-dark plastic and purple>dullWat
>>9180630>Human Man>Blade holds aloft two swords"By the double Power Honor of Grayskull, I AM HUMAN-MAN!"
the reviews are flooding in and yes it really is just the Teela showI’ll still watch it but if it’s not good I’m done. Fuck mattel
I wonder how much, if any, trickle down from the fallout will affect the rest of the brand.You just know some folks will rage quit MotU entirely. Will Revelations cause Origins to tank, in addition to Masterverse? That's my concern.
>>9180902They end the first half setting up Teela to defeat Skeletor. They completely kick He-Man/Prince Adam out of the show.
Teelageddon came early? Fun. See you guys in the fall maybe.
>>9180915It's trickling out that they pull an 80's Transformers movie and basically kill all the beloved characters and bring in new ones, such OC's like Andra.>He-Man dies>Moss Man dies>Orko dies>Roboto dies
JUST LOOK AT THAT GLOW! SO fucking COOL that only the skull glows and doesn’t seem cheap at all
>>9180911>You just know some folks will rage quit MotU entirely. Will Revelations cause Origins to tank, in addition to Masterverse? That's my concern.Who the fuck cares that much about the content that they'd suddenly dislike everything else that exists?If you watch it then don't like it, does that suddenly mean you suddenly hate MOTU as a whole? Or frankly even the toys, if you like the toys why does it matter if the show sucked? Or even if you don't watch it, I would hope the fact that it exists doesn't bother people that much.
>>9180920>only one part glowsLOL Fuck Revelation and it's gay designs. This is why Scareglow is white with black bones and not black with white bones.
>>9180718Haha this sucks. Who wanted this?
>>9180924>Who the fuck cares that much about the content that they'd suddenly dislike everything else that exists?Lots of folks. The question is "are there enough of those folks to significantly kill sales?" Because I've already seen people saying they wished they hadn't wasted money on all those origins figures because Mattel deserves to be punished
>>9180934I’m already in that boat. Thank god they don’t own the rights to the filmation show holy fuck
>>9180919>half of wave 1Now I'm mad the other two aren't out yet
>>9180934>wished they hadn't wasted money on all those origins figures because Mattel deserves to be punishedThat's a weird ass line of thinking. If the Origins figures are something you actually enjoyed, why would you want to deny yourself that? Also, wouldn't buying up Origins and He-Man merch specifically send more of a message that HE'S who you're here for, not whoever they're pushing in his place?
>>9180942In a perfect world yes. But like it or not origins and revelation are forced to coexist. Poor sales for one line will absolutely affect the other. I can see origins outlasting masterverse but there’s a very real scenario where origins dies either for or because of revelation. We’re cucked and fucked.
>>9180942There are some people that clearly have a different way of thinking, like this guy >>9180937. I personally don't get how something you've no need to watch can possibly affect your enjoyment of a franchise you already like. Then again, these people are probably the same that would have said the same about the She-Ra show, so they clearly don't matter in the grand scheme since they're obviously still here.
>>9180926>This is why Scareglow is whiteI bet Tony Todd is confused
So did Mattel want to damage their own IP, or...?What's the plan here?
>advent calendar is cancelled>he-man and Orko, my favorite characters, die>it literally is the Teela show>origins is shelfwarming everywhereI don’t feel so good
>>9180958>>9180959Teela's also implied to be in a lesbian relationship with Andra according to the early reviews. People are going to be platinum mad tomorrow night!
>>9180958>>9180959>>9180964MAKE YOUR OWN OPINIONS HOLY SHIT
>everyone hates the rev bodies>constantly complain about the small head, more rectangle bodyI get the complaints, but I kinda like the figures at the same time. Wish Classics have double jointed elbows and knees desu. Scale well with Classified and ML. The cross replaced with the H is my biggest complaint. Still buying Origins regardless if BBTS ever learns to get product in
>>9180964>Teela's also implied to be in a lesbian relationship with Andra according to the early reviews.This one actually gives me a perverse pleasure because I always fucking hated the He-man/Teela ship. Killing it like this amuses me(I'm a He-man/Frosta guy)
>>9180975Scott was pretty upset about losing the cross, and said he would have fought to keep it, and fuck jews even though he's jewish, because it's a iconic part of He-Man's look.
>>9180979It's all about cucking the male fans by denying them sex by proxy. That even a fictional character in their head wouldn't fuck them.
>>9180920>Take the defining feature of the figure>remove that feature>make exclusive (aka more expensive)brilliant! i guess he looks cool but i'll stick to my origins scareglow
>>9180979>(I'm a He-man/Frosta guy)>guyI am too, but I gotta say it would have been funnier if you hadn't revealed your gender
>>9180972these are my own opinions you fat fucking autist. I love Orko, and I ship He-Man and Teela. I want the brand to do good. These are not sheeplike mentalities. Fuck me.
looks like origins wins the glow off!
>>9180984Please get a life.
Scott put out a video shitting on Nu Teela, while explaining why shit like changes like this happen.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLkKNcsp4f8
>>9181007this is unacceptablehis name is literally scareglow
>>9181007Origins is so bright it lights up figures sitting next to it.
>>9181007I think glow in the dark stuff does get weaker over time, hence the Origins figure being brighter. But I do know that there are glow powders that are extremely bright and one company claims that it never diminishes in its ability to glow over time.
>>9180981It is and the cross pre-dates WW2 for usage but we still lose it.
>>9181007Holy shit this pic makes me so hard even though mega construx and motu minis aren't included
Am I one of the only few who prefers Mer-Man's toy design? Looks much more sleek and buff, but not as much as Beast-Man, as opposed to the goofy-looking guppy.
so it begins
>>9181087>THAT DAMAGE CONTROLKevin just pointing out how the blue checkmarks sites that are paid to like it, say they love it! LOL
I can't wait to hear what Mattel is gonna have to say at SDCC this weekend
>>9181117>Here's our exclusive color changing gender neutral Teela. She's turns a different color for every gender.
>FAT MAN LIED>HE-MAN DIEDhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSpJkBkmjNg
>>9176894I got clamp champ the other day
>>9181154He's a fun figure. I'm waiting on my Deluxe Hordak to arrive. It said he shipped the other day.
>>9181157I got buzz saw hordak like a month ago at target. Hes so cool i love his action feature its very fun to play with and i also love his vintage toy accurate head. I still like the basic hordak but buzz saw hordak is my favorite hordak figure
>>9181162I got multiples of the basic Hordak with two different heads apparently. One has first run head, and the other has solid red eyes.
Pixel Dan's increasingly disappointed with Masterverse Scareglow.
>>9181007Genuinely impressive. I wish the paint wasn't so shit.
>>9181225Based pixel dan breaking out of his shill conditioning and having actual negative opinions about a bad product
>>9181138Stop shilling this shitty-ass YouTube channel. They shat on the pics, worshiped the first trailer, then shat on the second trailer.I think the truth about this show lies somewhere in the middle. He-Man will disappear for a few episodes and be brought back in time for the second half of the season. It won't be the Teela show, but you just know channels like Clownfish will move their goalposts.>"buh... buh... but we were still kinda right, at least for a little while"Give me a fucking break. I miss the days when you could just be excited for something in the days leading up to it. Now the internet's full of assholes who have to start shit. Sure, the SJWs are the ones who started politicizing these properties, but we're ten years into this and neither side seems to want to stop.
>>9180975I don't mind it. Skeletor looks cool; I might grab it at least. The proportions don't look any less appealing than the usual He-Man proportions. Just different. Not ideal, but serviceable. My one gripe is that Skeletor's face isn't yellow, and it clearly should be.
>>9181236>worshiped the first trailerThey were just being fair until more came out.>somewhere in the middleYou fence sitting faggots are the worst for not shitting or getting off the pot.
>>9181236And this goes double for Grace Randolph. She's wrong half the time and lives on drama. That's how all of these channels/Twitter profs operate. You really want to get your impressions of something through them instead of the thing itself? Pirate the show if you don't want to give Netflix any money, but stop following these mouthpieces.
>>9181243Nobody's promoting them retard. We're posting them, because we hate Kevin Smith and he started this shit show by commenting on Clownfish.
>>9181239>You fence sitting faggots are the worst for not shitting or getting off the pot.Just speaking from experience. Every controversy that's come up in the last decade had loudmouths on either side of it and neither of them had the complete picture. Was one closer to the truth than the other? Sure, but all of them missed something and refused to acknowledge their failings. Life is grey, motherfucker.As far as fence sitting, I just refuse to make up my mind until I see the damn thing. You're listening to clickbait randos on the internet and letting them tell you what to think about something instead of forming your own opinion.Why the fuck do I have to pick a side before doing my due diligence? You think you're against Kevin, Netflix, SJWs, Twitter, etc but you act just like them. Enjoy being a useful idiot.
I can't believe every Origins figure with the Skeletor boots is just going to have those boots on the wrong feet forever and always.
>>9181237>My one gripe is that Skeletor's face isn't yellow, and it clearly should be.That was weird that the cartoon does and the figure doesn't. Why, Mattel?
>>9181138That IGN article that calls this "teela's show" goes on to say>Prince Adam and He-Man (voiced by Supergirl's Chris Wood) are important, but they really serve as backdrop. In a manner similar to how Max acts as a lesser lead to Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road, Revelation draws upon the might and majesty of He-Man to facilitate others' arcs.>A new ragtag team of champions, formed of both heroes and villains, is tasked with returning magic to Eternia and saving the entire universe. Lifelong enemies learn to work together, while still operating under different sets of priorities and motivations, and it all culminates in a wicked game-changing cliffhanger that nicely sets up the back half of the season, which will be released at a later date.Betting He-Man comes back in the second half. They're not treating this like a "bad guy of the week" scenario where He-Man shows up and saves the day every 30 minutes. They're going for a single story spread over 10 episodes, I assume 30 mins each. That's five hours, longer than the Snydercut. I can deal with Adam taking a backseat for a couple hours to explore the rest of these characters.
>>9181260>experience.I don't care about your "authentic" or "lived experience," I care about the reviews and the clips information I've seen, and my prior knowledge of 80's reboots that have flopped in recent years.>Was one closer to the truth than the other? SureAnd by this logical fallacy you just eat shit and consoom; you're not allowed to talk about it or have an opinion.
>>9181260You are correct that some times things are blown out of proportion. Especially by click tubers. Maybe it's not that bad and all the negative hype is just really hype. I honestly hope so.but i'm also reminded of a saying > how many bites of shit sandwich do i need to take to confirm it tastes like shit?
>>9181292>He-man is killed twice and revived twice in the span of 10 episodes
>>9181303>He-man is killed twice and revived twice in the span of 10 episodesAt that point you might be taking TOO MUCH inspiration from Dungeons & Dragons
>https://www.techradar.com/news/masters-of-the-universe-revelation-part-1-is-the-subversive-revival-that-he-man-deserves>Masters of the Universe: Revelation Part 1 is the subversive revival that He-Man deserveshttps://pastebin.com/amLXC7vnbtw, it's only 5 episodes?!
>>918134310 total not sure when they'll shit out part 2 but expect the shittiest ending conceived at this point.
How did we go from making new threads too fast not not making them fast enough?
Anyone got a bingo yet?
>>9181295You can have an opinion. But I'd rather base my opinion on the thing itself, not what attention whores on the internet think. Rest assured, if the show is as bad as these people say, I'll join the chorus. Doesn't make sense to do it now. You're asking me to take a side before the evidence has been presented.>>9181302>how many bites of shit sandwich do i need to take to confirm it tastes like shit?Yep, I totally get this. There are certain markers that a movie or show will have an SJW flavor or cater to an agenda. One of those markers is shaved heads on females, I agree. But the presence of that marker doesn't mean that aspect of the show will be taken to the extreme and dominate the entire run. Sometimes those SJW markers are just stylistic choices that the creators make because they're bankrupt and can't think of any other option.>let's see, we have a female character who's going on the run. let's shave her head, that's what people do nowadays, right?Uncreative? Yes. But not necessarily an indicator that the thing will be a dumpster fire. Fury Road was a good example. Some people were pissed because Max played second fiddle or at most shared the lead with the buzzcutted Furiosa. But the movie also wasn't a Tumblr fantasy where chicks who looked like dudes embarrassed the men at every turn. Hell, without Max's suggestion to go back the way they came, the women would've died halfway through the film. It's far from a Birds of Prey, Ghostbusters, or Charlie's Angels.Masters of the Universe has even less of a reason to center around the all-powerful He-Man. He may be the superpower in the show and is usually the clincher to win the day, but there are 20 other characters that will now get more development in the five hour span of this series. Even Scareglow plays a part here.
Do Mattel read these threads as market research?Cuzz if Mattel does they better make Origins Frosta before they make fucking lame ass Bow.
>>9181343>the subversive revival that He-Man deservesWhat do you have against He-Man, Tom Power?
Man, what a fucking week!Monday, I find a tumor the size of a ping pong ball in my intestines and on Friday He-Man dies and Snake Eyes will be cemented into pop culture as a bastardization of who he once was.
>>9181373And that's a good thing
>>9181373Hopefully the tumor will win before you see them?(Seriously, that sucks ass anon.)
>>9181360Because we're all not happy with the revelation shit show and the reviews seem to point it was pretty much what most of us expected.
Have you apologized today?
So, I remember there was talk WAYYYY back at the beginning of this current MOTU push that Mattel wanted to get away from Filmation stuff. We know they kill Orko. What if all this Prince Adam dying stuff is one more step for them to get away from it. Wasn't it a plot point in one of the crossover comics(Motu/Thundercats I think) that Adam got fucking stabbed through the heart, then powered up and needed to stay as He-Man forever at that point or he'd die? And if there's one thing I equate with Filmation more than Orko it's the shitty secret identity plot. Maybe they're just doing that?
>>9181409>Wasn't it a plot point in one of the crossover comics(Motu/Thundercats I think) that Adam got fucking stabbed through the heart, then powered up and needed to stay as He-Man forever at that point or he'd die?Yeah. And then when Skeletor stole the power of Greyskull he reverted to Adam and died in his father's arms.Lion-O resurrected him with the Power Everliving from Mumm-ra's Black Pyramid
>>9181433Well that throws a Monk-or wrench into my theory.
>>9181401Im sorry scott, for all your fauots at least you showed today that you have an actul spine and didnt blindly consoom the product that is kevin smiths TLOU2:motu style
>>9181437Not entirely.In the aftermath, Adam's identity was no longer a secret. All of Eternia knew. And a handful of the population were passed thst all these years the prince was acting a fool when could have and should have been taking a harder stance to protect Eternos from Skeletor, Hordak and King Hiss. So while there was still Adam, there was no secret identity.
>>9181401He looks like he's being held gunpoint by someone out of frame.
>>9181455I meant my theory that these "deaths" are nothing more than doorways to having He-Man around instead of a way to write him out.
>>9181053Not the only one. I kind of like the more fierce look. I had my original for a long time too, so it is just the right look to me.
