>>9313406>Amazon Prime Live Action She-ra supposedly in developmentI don't know shit about Amazon Prime or its original content, so tell me:What's their track record for quality writing?And do their shows usually have a decent budget for special effects or costuming? Can we expect to see "monster" Horde characters, or will we be limited to human characters like Catra and Entrapta like the last show?
>>9313460The big thing to know is that that they have a diversity checklist that they enforce on shows; see the controversy over their Lord of the Rings show and the media push regarding it, and the demand for black, asian, gay, and trans characters.https://deadline.com/2021/06/amazon-studios-inclusion-policy-playbook-1234776831/>"Each film or series with a creative team of three or more people in above-the-line roles (Directors, Writers, Producers) should ideally include a minimum 30% women and 30% members of an underrepresented racial/ethnic group. This aspirational goal will increase to 50% by 2024.">"Aiming to include one character from each of the following categories in speaking roles, with minimum 50% of these to be women: LGBTQIA+, person with a disability, and three regionally underrepresented race/ethnic/cultural groups. A single character can fulfill one or more of these identities."https://www.dailywire.com/news/transgender-realities-in-the-lord-of-the-rings-facing-accusations-of-racism-tolkien-society-to-focus-on-diversity-at-seminarhttps://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9729267/Tolkien-things-far-Fans-accuse-Lord-Rings-writer-society-political-correctness.htmlhttps://nypost.com/2021/06/26/j-r-r-tolkien-annual-seminar-goes-woke-with-diversity-focus/https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv/tv-news/lord-of-the-rings-amazon-diversity-1234953348/https://screenrant.com/the-lord-of-the-rings-biggest-series-flaws-ignored-fans/>"However, as beloved and wonderful as the series is, it’s not completely perfect. It is a product of its time in many ways, and while this doesn’t mean it should be written off, it’s still worthwhile to point out the places where it doesn’t hold up in modern times. Questions of diversity and inclusion in Tolkien-inspired works are more relevant than ever with Amazon's Lord of the Rings project on the horizon. Fans are especially curious as to what updates the series will make and if it will be updated."
any one have these wall mounts? I came across them looking for foot peg stands. I am tempted to pick up a set of two so i'm curious if they are any good. they are only 25 for 2 so it's not to bad on the wallet
>>9313473Is this really the "big thing" to consider when the anon asked about quality writing?
>>9313579We've been down this road before with She-Ra, how wont it effect the writing?
>>9313410Nah, you do.
>>9313473>is a product of its time in many ways, and while this doesn’t mean it should be written off, it’s still worthwhile to point out the places where it doesn’t hold up in modern times.fuck these people. "Yeah even though we dont give a shit about this thing, we see fit to fuck it up beyond belief. Eat shit if you disagree, we'll take your money regardless"
>>9313239impeccable ensemble anon, I wonder how many other people origins has prompted into buying vintage figures.
I wonder how hard it would be to disassemble an origins torso and place the various limb and waist ports into a vintage body. I've see alot of buated up vintage Rios online and my fingers are gwtting itchy.
>>9313579>>9313584Guy who asked the question, and no, I don't consider that an answer to my question.I asked "does Amazon Prime have good shows?"You provided a link to a diversity checklist that tells me nothing as someone with zero exposure to Prime or their content.Yes, a lot of times that shit supercedes writing and it turns to shit (if this was Netflix I wouldn't even have to ask, but I've never watched or read discussions on Prime shows to know).But you can also have cases where, even if writing is affected, the show still turns out at least acceptable because the woke shit is present but not intrusive.It's a yes or no answer.
>>9313652Amazon is not a personthey employ other studios as well as having their owneven then they have multiple writers and show runnersso until we know the show runner and writers how can any one answer whether the show will be written well?what crimson commander spoke to was a blanket policy that will affect the writing and that's as close as anyone can get to taking a random stab in the dark at the moment
>>9313652Do you need things to be spelled out for you? The answer is obvious enough to gauge from the amazon guidelines, they produce shit. Even their most notable hits (invincible, the boys) either eventually turned to utter propaganda shit or take huge divergences from the source material for the sake of representation and whatever else other horseshit they deem necessary.
>>9313652WOMEN AND BLACK PEOPLE BAD! GET IT ALREADY!
>>9313652Look up Cinderella to give you an idea what's to expect of Amazon and old franchises being "modernized".
>>9313665That was a Sony film sold to Amazon because of theater shutdowns
>>9313652Amazon bought and released the Borat and Coming to America sequels so they're kind of all over the place if we're going by those diversity standards. Like most studios, they'll just produce whatever and establish those standards as lip service for investors.
>>9313669Yes. And? Read the first link cc posted
>>9313473On top of what others have said, the original She-Ra, with some slight tweaks, like say making Mermista latina, one other character black aside from Netossa, some character Asian, make one of the princesses a couple, etc, would already hit these quota. Of all the universes where this could be a problem, I don't think it's She-Ra.
>>9313693The diversity itself isnt the issue, it's the reprecussions that come from it. This pretty much ensures the live action she-ra series will be nu-ra in 3D. Racial archetypes bordering on stereotypes acting as the mouthpieces and wish fulfillment of gay twitter stalinists.
>>9313664go back to the sun-man containment thread heathen
>>9313693So Bow will be black, Mermista brown, and Entrapta one or the other forever.Ah well, in the case of the two girls NuRa did make them more interesting people.
Talk about toys you faggots and take this show shit back to>>>/co/
>>9313652I think Dreamworks still involved,
>>9313473> A single character can fulfill one or more of these identitiesMake a narrator that talk about 5min at begin. Make him disabled, black, trans.Make another character at the end with same qualities.Diversity quota fullfilled!Maybe to deflect critisism, make them gods or higher entities to make them „powerfull, we wuz kang, yaaas queen“
>>9313708>>9313718I felt like they race swapped Bow to be black in case She-Ra wasn't a lesbian. It seemed very obvious that he was black because one of She-Ra's two main love interests. I could feel my eyes roll the first time I saw it.
>>9313727Make it Light Hope
>>9313693Honestly that racial distribution makes sense. For black, i would create a new character.
I would be okay with Masterverse getting Nu-ra toys for the fans of that show.......Except that they are assholes and dont deserve plastic, if they were not as toxic it would be fine even if I hate dont like that show at all.but of course just as a side thing, and give priority to the fans that have being buying stuff for decades
https://youtu.be/Eqd0QDZVMyA>still no word as to whether or not mcx eldor, mo-larr, webstor, clawful, whiplash, buzz off, zodac, ninjor, or ram man are still coming>2+ years removedfuck I really hope we see them soon
>>9313734That's a good looking custom. I'd like a deluxe Bow that comes with his toy head also.
>>9313737>>9313734I always thought it was odd how much NA He-man looks like Bow
>>9313735Pixel Dan's still on radio silence and Mattel has yet to put out official pics for their reveals.
>>9313730Good point. The end character has to be Loo-Kee.He was an integral part and very important!
>>9313734Yoooo that's so perfect I'd love that so much
>>9313740I want to be optimistic about this, but being optimistic just isnt realistic in this scenario
Silver lining in this mess, the Amazon series allows for MOTU to stay at retail longer and for more She-Ra figures in Origins.>>9313746I'm wondering if Dan scored an interview with Mattel like last year, and if they got any reveals for him. It's possible that they might also be making wait until after the CGI show drops tomorrow.
>>9313740With all the repaints the mcx line puts out, you'd think we would have gotten everything out of the first few years of MOTU by now
>>9313708DreamWorks explicitly stated in the article that the live action series will not be connected to Nu-Ra
>>9313735>webstor, clawful, whiplash, buzz off, zodac, ninjor, or ram man>2+ years removedI want them so bad, and also Orko.Look how far I am from even being able to recreate the 1984 William George battle painting in bricks!
>>9313752>I'm wondering if Dan scored an interview with Mattel like last year, and if they got any reveals for him. It's possible that they might also be making wait until after the CGI show drops tomorrow.Given how spooked Matty was after rev baxklash, it could be possible he didnt. Which is a shame, we could use some clarification on a few things in all honesty. As for the CGI show theory, I certqinly hope that's the case. Potentially Mattel could be playing the waiting game for the moment. They likely want to recreate what they did with turtles with motu. Kid line based off the ongoing show seeing release alongside the oldfag product.
>>9313406>you could introduce a new gimmick to Origins what would it be?Light piping Color change in waterSpring loaded "grasping" feet for a bird of prey or bat styled character so they can grasp victims in flight or hang upside down in a caveIcer as a snowglobe that was posted way backSpinning drill (either arm or head mounted)Some kind of "break apart gimmick" like a combination of King Hiss and Blaast Attak where an outer body "exlodes" to reveal an inner body within. Like....a hatching egg man or something
>>9313756That isnt what that anon said, I think anon was trying to say the show would function as a live action nu-ra series in terms of tone and content.
>>9313740Give Dan time, he’s exhausted his main hobby and the only things left now are getting missing accessories for figures like HALF COURT. He’ll find some new devices.As for Mattel, all of these new reveals won’t be available for some months even without the shipping crisis.
>>9313758Im atleast glad we've gotten as many of the heroic warriors as we have. It's just a shame we barely have any of their vehicles. Meanwhile we have about a third of the evil warriors and TWO of their vehicles, three if you want to consider panthor a vehicle. This is the one instance where the motu heroes outnumber the villains.
>>9313758Orko atleast falls into the same category as the aforemention prototyped characters. We know they have him finished, now it's just a matter of if and when they'll see production.
>>9313753MCX has been running longer than Origins too. I think the problem is that retail just doesn't really like to support Mega Construx, and favors Lego, even though Lego's pretty shit in comparison. There's often little to none found at most stores.>>9313760It's possible they don't want to say anything. The CGI show's initial trailer got a lot of dislikes over the anger over Revelation. Scott even put out a video calling Kevin Smith a liar who kept doubling down on his lies, and that he was only riling people up more.>>9313764I'd say it's a given it'll be like Nu-Ra, but just a new take. Expect race swaps and probably lesbians. If it were me, I'd make the mandatory lesbians and gay characters people like Madame Razz, and maybe even make her a black woman to kill two birds with one stone. >>9313766I'm just getting antsy, because we don't even have publicity photos, and there's no new pics out there.
>>9313761Yes to literally everyone of these suggestions.This post is fucking gospel brother.>speclatron styled icerfuuuuuck
>>9313758Like what the fuck guys, how hard would it be to get Orko, Buzz-Off, Ram Man, Webstor, Clawful, Whiplash, Kobra Khan and Jitsu out in 2022?
>>9313761Color changing Snake Man for me. He'd be like those color changing G.I. Joe Ninja Force figures from the 90's, and turn white to become "invisible." He'd be a bright neon type color too.
>>9313758>TFW you have an near mint original William George print from the 80s in your collectionAlways a nice reminder when I see this image.
>>9313775On the matter of MCX, do you think the line would do any better if it became an e-tail exclusive? If these big box retailers are being so anal about carrying these lines, why even bother you know? Either that or supply retailers with just the single release figures (heroes, 5 packs, and skeletor skulls) while you sell the bigger sets online.
>>9313789fucking this, all it would take is for mcx to release half of them through whatever sets they had planned and the rest could go direct to retail in the form of motu heroes/skeletor skulls.
>>9313761I'd seriously kill for a Moss Man variant that pulled from anyone of these Swamp Things for a gimmick. The easiest Moss Man variants they could do in origins are probably either GITD or color changing. I wouldnt even care that he's unflocked desu. Just include some yellow beast man armor with him, maybe a different head like classics, and Id be happy.
>>9313795I'd like to say that they should, but would Mattel want to do it? The online would probably expensive at the lower production runs and sales they'd be doing. And would fans pay the premium? Imagine like Mattel Creations tier price hikes on sets. Would it be possible that they could get enough sales from online fan channels and Amazon? I think they tried that with that Advent Calander, and now we don't get Christmas Orko. I'm still pretty upset over the set being cancelled.
>>9313768>Im atleast glad we've gotten as many of the heroic warriors as we have. It's just a shame we barely have any of their vehicles.Wind Raider, Talon Fighter, Battle Ram, Jet Sled. Battle Cat if creatures count.I think the heroic vehicle I'd want next would be the Filmation Attak Trak carrying the toy version, just because Mega Construx is a great opportunity to get bigger vehicles than the vintage line had.
I meant to share this the other day. It's a Sun-Man mini-comic.
>>9313758Dragon Walker has got to be the stupidest MOTU vehicle. Like what was the point of it? It's so slow and has no weapons. Other than crossing small gaps that anyone could just jump over, it's completely useless.
I find the art amusing and fitting, since it's full Sonichu tier and Sun-Man is an OC Donut Steel.
>>9313809>The online would probably expensive at the lower production runs and sales they'd be doing. Well my thought was that they continue producing the sets at the numbers they're doing so currently, but exclusively sell the sets through online only. That way all the retailers would have to stock are the figures themselves. This model has for the most part worked well for the halo line, which only sparringly sees their sets released to retail while the figs make the real retail money. As for the price hikes, I wouldnt mind it if it meant more came with the sets.>Advent CalendarWhat exactly happened with that? Did they cancel it due to disinterest? Everyone on the MCX threads was so hyped when it was first announced and twice as heartbroken when it got axed. I knew some people who preorder double sets.
>>9313815The attack trak would make for a great set, especially if the cod/halo designers got involved. That thing would be a castle on wheels.
>>9313829>Chem-Brain>Cube-FaceI guess Skeletor and Hordak got all the choice minions first.
>>9313829>Cube FaceHoly based, THIS is the guy that needs a toy
>>9313827I think the Advent set had to have a certain number of pre-orders, otherwise it wouldn't be produced.
>>9313824I think the fact that it's stupid IS the point.
>>9313824there was a redesigned dragon walker in 200X that executed the concept alot better, but I agree with your general point. personally I wiah the dragon walker was just that, a literal dragon mount. I imagine something along the lines of a living battle bones.
>>9313829>this artit's somehow both incompetent and competent simueltaneously
>>9313839so it didnt reach the requirement? fuck that's saddening
>>9313829you werent wrong anon, this really does give off major sonichu vibes
>>9313815Making this as a playset that opens up and has a bunch of play features inside would be fantastic. Hearing about the Attack Trak from my brother was what got me interested in HeMan as a kid. We didn't have it airing in our country at the time but he watched a video of it at school and describe how the wheels moved. 5 year old me was mind blown by it.
>>9313846>Telescopic stars>on his boots>to let him see through thingsWhere to even start...
>>9313850>Go, Sun-man! Shine to the extreme!>I will! Thank you Yla
>>9313829I love the idea of Ganon trying to take over a sunny world of black people, but he needs better minions.
>>9313846STARS ON YOUR ANKLES GIVE X-RAY VISION
>>9313866>all of Sun-man's allies are just slight variations of him themed to different planets and astral bodies>pig-man's cronies are jerkop tier low effort
>>9313859>from desert African culture to cowboysThey certainly recreated the kitchen sink aesthetic of MotU
>>9313865>,,,he remembers his fathers words,,,"Touch your hat and do the John Lennon pose."
>>9313879>pighead wants to rob banks>>9313882>SnizzlerThis is great
>>9313882>Cube-Face you bimbo!
>>9313878In all due fairness, it's not hard to replicate that aspect. What's hard is to replicate how seamlessly MOTU was able to bridge the gap between all these themes. There's a cohesiveness to MOTU despite all the craziness. Sun-Man in many ways reminds me of low rent blacksploitation junk like the black godfather or blackenstein. The idea is there, but the exceution is lacking in every way. That's partly why I would have preferred any of the other MOTU k.o.'s joining the canon to Sun man.
>>9313723I'm gonna second if nu-ra is involved it should be on /co/ we got enough cancer flooding this board as is (gnitsalborter).
It would be nice if eventually MCX got the powercon duplicat. I am almost tempted to grab a cheap MCX set with a cat and make an attempt at a custom
>>9313474i have a weird feeling that they'll fall off the wall every time you either peg the toy or pull the shelf row out
>>9313909>MCX Lord Faker and Dupli-CatIt is hilarious how many times they can get me to buy this fucking mold, but god dammit I'd love that. Considering we havent even gotten AE He-man in MCX yet I really do wonder what they have in mind for the next wave of skeletor skulls beyond slime pit he-man. Are there any other easy repaints left for them outside of heman and skeletor? I can only think of concept art merman.
>>9313718>one or the other forever.No... for this one incarnation of the series. Just like how Nu-Ra didn't affect the original She-Ra.
we were robbed god dammit
>>9313932>last panelsomebody play the guts theme
>>9313918I'd buy an AE Battle Cat if they made one in Origins just to get another easy repaint. It'd be neat to build up AE as another villain faction.
Does he have to speak in rhymes though like fuck reading that annoyed me
>>9313963What would be a new hero faction?
>>9313975Well in motm, all of skeletor's cronies were the allies of an old and beaten down randor. So effectively, the would be evil warriors are now juat the good guys.
>>9313912PIG HEAD: Sticks to Snakes!
>>9313975AE... but the good guy side.
>>9313952Look dude I'm not one to go off about comics pages being posted here. However, a whole comic book is a bit much. I'm not saying take it to /co/ but can't you just post the front page and put up a link to the rest of the comic? This way you can share for those who want it and not flood the thread.
>>9313989There's no link to it. I snagged it from a group. There's little to no news going on right now.
>>9313918>Considering we havent even gotten AE He-man in MCX yet I really do wonder what they have in mind for the next wave of skeletor skulls beyond slime pit he-man. Are there any other easy repaints left for them outside of heman and skeletor?Wun-DarPink Teela, pink Sorceress from mini-comics circa 1985.Retail Battle Damaged pink FakerMini-comic Caucasian Stratos200X StinkorToy-colored Trap JawA cheapass Filmation Hordak, or invest in cannon hands and Hurricane Hordak's plug-in accessories to get 2 variantsThat's 8-9 repaints not counting Anti-Eternia.
>>9313989>I'm not one to go off about comics pages being posted hereI am>>9313992Go the fuck back to /co/It doesn't matter how much or little news is going on, storytime shit belongs on /co/
>>9313734I'd be into an origins-ified catra simply because I want to fuck that remade design (yes i know...)Either way you're right about how nobody bought the actual dolls when they came out and now they go for insane prices because retards were too angry about the dolls being skinny or whatever.
>>9314002It's part of the toy anon, like it or not. It came with Sun-Man toy and Sun-Man is part of MOTU.
>>9313761>>9313406Megaphone gimmick for a banshee or howler monkey guy
>>9313998>Toy-colored Trap Jawisn't that already done? .... oh after checking i see they are different>>9313928I'll never not be bummed out by this. collecting the mcx line is suffering
>>9313928Maybe there's hope?
>>9313992You could have just uploaded the images to imgur and posted a link
>>9313975>What would be a new hero faction?Anti-Etheria HordeThey travel between planets in a hospital ship like sci-fi Doctors Without BordersHordak delivered Queen Marlena's difficult pregnancyModulok specializes in transplantsLeech is a medicinal leechGrizzlor is a therapy dog
>>9314012Or you could go to /lgbt/ if you're gonna be fag about something you don't even have to read.
>>9313985There only one character that has notable differences in that group. They really should have just done different color schemes.
>>9313992>There's no link to it. I snagged it from a group.there are places to upload it. I understand it can be a bit of a pain in the ass to do so. However it would make our group less likely to go off about it. I'm not going to say anything more on the matter. I've imparted my thoughts on the matter. and i'm not looking to rage about it
>>9313914I hope not i went ahead and took the plunge and grabbed one .... well i guess the last one since it's sold out now. I guess I'll report on it when i get it so if it does go back up every one will know if it's worth getting or not.
>>9313989>>9314002Are accessories not part of the toy anymore?
>>9314020At the end of the day you can either choose to click on the image and read or, skip it. It's on topic- It's MOTU, Sun-Man just became part of Origins and Mini-Comics have been posted here plenty of times. It's a rare mini-comic at that and I was doing you fags a favor posting it in the first place. And I'm not jumping thru extra hoops because some people are autismos.
Finally they're clearancing out those goddamn He-Mans and Skeletors
>>9314028Not disputing that. It's fine was just having a discussion. I won't speak about it again unbidden. >>9314031Not disputing it's on topic. No need to be hostile, I'm not mad or shitting on you for it. It was merely a suggestion. Take it or leave it. I'm still happy to see people passionate about this line
>>9314036I get why they are doing it ...but it scares me to see them on clearance.
>>9314036>>9314044It seems like a bad sign for the line when those are Evergreen, unless it's being done to replace them with the version 2 figures with the vintage heads and full Power Swords. The He-Man and Skeletor figures in general don't do anything to stop a store from carrying the main waves.
>>9314031Fuck off Scott.
>>9314052I'm not Scott.
Amazon appears to have gotten most of the new knees figures
>>9314044Local store has 4 pegs and an endcap full of Hemans and Skeletor. Another store just refreshed the pegs with them as well and only put out 1 case of wave 5. I think it's time to get rid of them and make room for new waves. It's not like they're going away as we got the BA version as well as the Deluxes next year.
>>9314068Well i'm more thinking that they have to offload a bunch of the line at a loss that it wouldn't be appealing to get more and potentially have the same thing happen
>>9314068They don't take up the pegs for the new waves. They're on their own special dedicated pegs. The waves too have their own pegs, so them being clearenced out is a strike against the line.
>>9314073>They don't take up the pegs for the new waves. They're on their own special dedicated pegs.Nobody who works retail understands this system. I live a city with 3 Wal-Marts and 2 Targets. When Wal-Mart managers see empty $14.99 Origins pegs, they put fresh cases of He-Man and Skeletor v1 on them. Target OTOH thinks they only need 2 hang tags for $14.99 Origins and then have space to hang deluxes... that Mattel either never ships to this city or get put out and disappear too fast for me to find.
>>9314068>>9314072 (You)Not sure why the hell all these stores ordered all those damn he-mans and skeletors i've seen this sort of things choke out a product. I used to get amiibos (i know, i know, anyways) and at one point the pegs got choked out by animal crossing amiibos and they wouldn't get any new ones in since they had a glut of the animal crossing ones. eventually they clearanced them all out and now i never see them at the big box retail stores. i know this isn't necessarily the same thing just an example
>>9314028It's one thing to have discussions on the minicomic and link it, it's another thing to post 20 pages of said comic, which literally nobody asked for
>>9314062Hmmm… isn’t that face different too?
>>9313824>Like what was the point of it?Because it's fun as fuck?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTgwxNQzWxo
>>9314031>It's on topic- It's MOTUIt's a MOTU comic. Not a MOTU toy
>>9314086Calm your tits. Nobody asks for pics of the toys posted on here either. But the good news is... you don't have to click on them. Plenty of other anons were reading it until you started complaining.>>9314094It's part of the toy. Like it or not. Go back to:>>>/lgbt/
>>9314088No i took my old knee teela and put it up to the screen and it's the same face
>>9314100It's a comic, not a toy. Like it or not.
>>9314105I don't see this conversation going any further with you, and it's just derailing the thread. It's part of the toy, part of the discussion, and it's on topic. So I'm thru with you.
>>9314100Dude just let it go and let the people have their say with out a response. The more it moves from a discussion to an argument the worse we make the thread. this is already blowing into a much bigger deal than it should be and this is a chill place so can't we all just let the matter go?
Pixel Dan came out of hiding to post a few pics of toys from the new show that he took at Power-Con. Nothing really new here.>>9314114See here: >>9314111
Oh shit guys, who's going to tell CMON that Mattel doesn't actually own MOTU??
>>9314111How are you going to say something literally called a minicomic belongs on a board literally called toy and not on a board called cartoons and comics
>>9314121>>9314125Pretty neat kids toys, I would have liked these. Big meaty fists for punching.
>>9314128where were you when people were bitching about Revelations?
>>9314129>>9314126This was meant for this post.
>>9314128Yeah makes me wish i knew some toy age kids so i could buy them for them.
>>9314129I was here, telling people to go the fuck back to /co/ too. Not being able to hold a MOTU thread on /co/ isn't and never was /toy/'s problem. Posting literally 20 pages of a comic nobody asked for on /toy/ however, is. And i will tell you /co/ fags to go back every single time
>>9314128I'd like to see more pics of the other toys. I'm really interested in the new show. I don't have Netflix tho, so I have to wait until people leak it all online.
>>9314121I'm tempted to get this for my MCX display
>>9314138You bitching so much is just derailing the thread. Stop being a controlling narcissist for 5 minutes.
>>9314139I wish i was excited for it. I myself don't like the style ... but maybe it will grow on me. I do however quite like the trapjaw he looks like a scary as shit version of the 200X version
>>9314138The guy's annoying as shit, but just ignore him, it'll be easier than telling him to stop what he won't stop doing. Or report him, up to you.
>>9314139wait ... who is the blue guy? is that a man at arms variant?
>>9314143It checks off a number of boxes for me. And the key thing here is that He-Man is the main character and it doesn't disrespect the hero. Plus the voice acting seems better and not weighed down by having famous screen actors who can't voice act. And the women look like women-- which is always nice touch.
>>9314145It sure is. The Masters are a team in the new show, all with their own transformations. I'd like to see regular "civilian" versions of the characters be made as well. I'd also like to see a He-Man figure with a throwing action that comes with a balled up Ram-Ma'am that he can throw at people.
>>9314153I more mean the toys than the show. I'm not a fan of the style of the show but it may be good an makes me look past it and even eventually enjoy it. the toys will probably never do it for me. the one caveat is that i'm excited to see this shows he-man in the masterverse.
>>9314169I wonder if he'll be stylized in Masterverse, like in the show? Or if he'll be a He-Man figure dressed in the outfit?
>>9314153If you watched the trailer for Revelation and nothing else you could say the exact same thing as this comment. What a biased response.
>>9314121Looks like a good 200x-styled sword for my origins
>>9314178I didn't like Revealtion though, and only the first trailer made it look like it might be good, while the second trailer for Revelation revealed what everyone already knew, that it was going to be the Teela show. This new show even has He-Man in the title and the clips we've seen look good.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXApnj-ztIEhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfUGh8ZXIBghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSJS9f6DKc8
>>9314178And that's why I hated revelations. They showcased an awesome new MOTU show and even said it would be a direct continuation of the 80s show. But everything was all a lie. At least this kids show isn't pretending to be anything other than a MOTU show where Heman and Friends are the main focal point.
>>9314197>And that's why I hated revelations. They showcased an awesome new MOTU show and even said it would be a direct continuation of the 80s show.I would have loved a direct Filmation continuation with a story arc, even if the tone was radically different (i.e. killing He-Man and needing to bring him back from the afterlife). The problem was writing it as "a spiritual sequel", which just meant an excuse for not picking up on any Filmation plot threads or keeping the A-list characters's personalities consistent.Fuck's sake, '80s Teela was not an angry narcissist and Randor was not a tyrant who threatened anyone with execution. Nor were the 200X versions, if they'd declared it an official sequel to THAT.

>>9314241How's the career?
Found at a Texas Wal-Mart
>>9313827Brick and mortar didn't want to carry it. Amazon EE and BBTS were all ready to roll. Comes right back round to shitty mattel distribution again.
>>9314275I wish they gave chyna a better outfit.
>>9314275Wouldn't that be some shit if Wave 7 was a Canada exclusive
>>9314287>Brick and mortar didn't want to carry it. Amazon EE and BBTS were all ready to roll.That was such bureaucratic bullshit.>Mega Construx can solicit an item to all retailers>if total retailer preorders are less than X, they cancel it>Mega Construx can make an Amazon exclusive, which means a production run of, say, 0.1X>but if all online retailers order it and they add up to anything less than X, the item is canceled
>>9314335I haven't seen a single wave of these at retail since Wave 2. Wal-Mart seems to never restock, and entire waves seem to never arrive.
>>9314014Im into this>AE Eternia is just a war torn shit hole
>>9314287To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand brick and mortar.

New Pixel Dan video of him toy hunting at Power-Con. Hopefully he did a Mattel interview too and it gets posted in the next few days.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erXswFTwEh4https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erXswFTwEh4https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erXswFTwEh4
>>9314571>bronze tyrantisaurusholy fuck that is incredible
>>9314571Why do you keep posting the same thing multiple times in a single post like that?Also how is Dan supposed to have done an interview with Mattel if they weren't there? If anything he'd have to do one once he gets back home and set up another video interview. Also >>9314533 is a stupid post.
>>9314581>bronze flightless dragon>Lawful Good>has two "breath" weapons: a lightning bolt and a buzz saw flying out of its torso
>>9314588Ive said it before, and I'll say it again. We need all the MOTU dinosaurs in origins. You want to get kids hooked on MOTU again? push the fun shit
>>9314592If you're going to troll go to:>>>/b/
>>9314597Dino-Riders rebooted as Masters of the Universe.Humans, King Hiss' people and Mer-Man's people all riding dinosaurs with guns(Maybe the insect Rulons get changed to good guys?)
>>9314597I feel like we're getting a beasts a year with a focus on repaints:>Battle Cat/Panthor/Dupli-Cat>Stridor/Night Stalker(we're obviously getting Night Stalker)So there's still more they can get to with beasts and they have places to go if the line goes on. And I hope we get to dinos.
>>9314606*a few beasts
>>9314597Could at least poke on the Jurassic park market, which for what I know is ultra strong.Specially if Mattel is not going to use Dino riders
Speaking of dinosaurs:>Reminder thst the 4H designed a pterodactyl man for 200x that got never made it to toy production>only printing the head shot in the art book, not the full body
>>9313932This reads like a bible story or from some nation of islam people!
>>9313406/motu/, what drew you into Masters of the Universe? Was it the wacky mix of elements? The vehicles? Skeletor? The barbarian stuff? Or the sci fi lost-tech stuff?
>>9314637>Imagines Bible stories MotUizedGenesis 14: white-bearded muscleman Abraham meets Malik Zodak
>>9314622>we'll never see faker in 200Xend my suffering
>>9314622Is that Ridley's hick cousin?
>>9314604Not gonna lie, Id love if the riders showed up on eternia. Like I genuinely like the valorians and the rulons. If the two merged, Id want both factions to be carried over into motu.
>>9314667MOTU was a big deal when I was a kid. New Adventures had just come about and there was a lot of mystique about He-Man, because of how big MOTU had been in the early and mid-80's. I'd rent episodes of the Filmation show on VHS, which was pretty much the only way you could see them at that time, and I even had my mom purchase some tapes for me. I also really liked the Dolph Lundgren movie, which had an effect on me. And occasionally I'd find older MOTU figures at garage sales and thrift stores, and would buy some of the New Adventures figures at Toys R Us. I do vividly recall lots of people still talking about MOTU, particularly older kids, which peaked my interest.It sucked so hard when the franchise went away in the 90's.
>>9314696And then I imagine the internet in the turn of the millenium got an effect on you, right? FRom the very late 90's websites with retro nostalgia stuff began popping up.
>>9314667He-Man was always just something I kind of knew about because of its cultural shadow, but the extent of that knowledge was just that he was a naked guy with a sword who fought Skeletor and She-Ra, who I only knew in name, was his sister.The extent of my actual exposure to the brand was the HEYEAH video and the occasional Skeletor meme.I thought it was lame and stupid and I didn't care about it at all, but that's how I felt about every 80s toy commercial cartoon with the exception of Transformers.I saw Origins Skeletor at Walmart and was shocked that MOTU had any kind of actual figures in production (I thought it was a completely dead brand) and considered getting Skeletor "as a joke" because he looked funny and I like his memes.I decided to watch the actual show first, again, "as a joke" then I kept watching it because I thought it was funny, then I unironically started to like it, then Revelation came out, I got Origins He-Man and Skeletor, started watching OG She-Ra and Nu-Ra, then 200x, got even more Origins figures, started collecting Masterverse, and now I'm legitimately excited for the new show.Over the course of about a year, I went from knowing fuck-all to being absolutely obsessed. I haven't had a fictional property take hold of me like this since I was a kid.
>>9314700I didn't really have the internet until like 2001. Everything was magazines before then and comic shops, and toy shows at trade centers and flea markets. It was a different time. Comic shops were a bigger deal back then and the vintage toys commanded a pretty high price at one time it seemed. Then 200X came out and really loved that show and that line, but a lot of the collectors really made it hard to buy into, because they'd buy up all the secondary characters, so you just had He-Man and Skeletor on pegs, and then you'd visit a comic shop and the brand new figures would have a $50 price tag on them.
>>9314710It's honestly really nice it went beyond "as a joke haha irony" and now you embrace it with sincerity. I think this world is missing sincerity a lot.
>>9314667>/motu/, what drew you into Masters of the Universe?I was barely old enough to play with action figures in 1986. I know I saw the Filmation cartoons, because when I re-watched as an adult, I recognized bits from "She-Demon of Phantos", "Secret of the Sword", and the Christmas Special as burned into my memory, but it was a small influence. Mostly I was drawn by the figures' varied gimmicks and the mixed-up aesthetics (barbarian, medieval, sci-fi, a cowboy). When the line died, I collected GI Joes until deciding I was too old for toys when THAT died in '94, but would keep pulling out my MotU figures and all the playsets besides Eternia and play with them, basing their adventures more on the '84-87 mini-comics than anything else.
>>9314667Unironcally /toy/, Classics and the original MOTU Generals. I remember seeing everyone going through the MattyCollector drops and talking about the White Screen of Death. I was just a lowly Canadian fresh out of highschool so I didn't have nearly enough money or means to get anySo I slowly played catchup for the last 11 years and here I am
I really want some of these custom heads
Mattel just release the video of the Power-Con panel for the new Netflix show.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VtnUh7R3Ug
>>9314744Really cool alternative heads. They give me a sort of Hair Metal vibe.
>>9313829>>9313835Seconded, long life to Cube Face!
>>9314742they are nice it's too bad they don't match the skin tone
>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VtnUh7R3UgThose last few seconds have a bit of info about when Revelation part 2 is showing up, which is probably around Christmas time.
>>9314721That sincerity is part of what drew me in. Intentionally or not (I know the morals were only added to get it on the air) the original shows had an earnestness to them that really speaks to me now, considering how bleak my general worldview is. It's a kind of optimism that I've really been missing.
Battlefield Warriors set is now up for sale on Target's websitehttps://www.target.com/p/masters-of-the-universe-origins-battlefield-warriors-figure-2pk/-/A-81959480
>>9314774looks like it's still sold out to me. it's not in my store or available for shipping. like it's been for weeks.
>>9314747damn dude this really cements how fugly nu-maa is
Evil-Lyn looks good
>>9314747Proportions aside, I'm really starting to like the Nu-Man design. The black undersuit is a cool look and the H/M/Sword combo logo is pretty neat. I don't like how overdesigned the sword is, but going off the 200x series and Nu-Ra, that seems to be the general trend for anything that isn't recreating the original.
>>9313406This still of Skeletor is great. So much potential.
>>9314783Nevermind I checked the link with the app and it showed up .... they have 5. I qm tempted but I went with masterverse battlecat when I couldn't get this .... now that I can I think I'll just leave it for those who are more into origins than I am
>>9314827>Proportions aside, I'm really starting to like the Nu-Man design. The black undersuit is a cool lookIt's a sleeveless superhero costume. That's more relatable to kids these days than a barbarian in furs (in 1982 they'd know who Conan was even if they weren't allowed to see R-rated stuff).
>>9314667Scifi lost tech definitely. I saw filmation as a kid in the early 90's and always thought the cartoon was a bit dumb, but the purple, barren backgrounds, barbarians in the future, technology and magic, monsters and cosmic thingsreally drew me in. I've never seen anything with that aesthetic outside of pinups from frazetta and the likes. It's a very particular aesthetic and I love it.
>BBTS is shipping Webstor to people>they're waiting to ship everyone else the full assortmentTruly this is the worst pain anyone has ever felt.
>>9314927I just want Stinkor :(((
New show tomorrow right?So....think we'll get Mosquit-ra?
>>9314927>stiffed us on second gripping hand when finally releasedThey can keep him until they "running change" that shit and he can hold both weapons as promised in production pics
>>9314947I hope it goes on multiple seasons and we get the Horde. They're not allowed to use Shadow Weaver tho, because she's owned by Dreamworks. Possibly not Catra and a few other characters either.
>>9314933Bbts sent me an email saying my Stinkor will charge soon.
>>9314952People should have bitched at Mattel about it and to Pixel Dan to ask what happened and if there will be a running change.
>>9314957>mine is still estimated for novemberAAARRGHHHJBLELE
>>9314947>New show tomorrow right?It should drop in 7 hours, 7 minutes
>>9314956>They're not allowed to use Shadow Weaver tho, because she's owned by Dreamworks.huh? how did they get her from filmation
>>9314956Assuming for a second that Mosquit-ra is both a version of Mosquitor AND not Horde (since we don't have reason to believe the show will have a Horde), I'd be fine if they did other alternate non-Horde versions of Horde characters in this show.I'm not gonna bitch if Mantenna or Leech show up as Evil Warriors, I'll just be glad they're showing up at all
>>9314985Didn't Filmation get nabbed by another company that Dreamworks snatched up? And that's why Mattel still needs to license Filmation versions of MOTU characters?
>>9314985She-Ra's cartoon was marketed by Mattel as a different license so companies would have to pay them twice in order to get the rights to all of MOTU. But, because of some sort of shenanigans with Filmation, when Filmation went under and was bought up and their library bought up, She-Ra continued to be passed around as a separate franchise. They couldn't use her in 200X either and replaced her with some generic Horde characters in robes.Pretty much all the female Horde characters are owned by Dreamworks for television and film.
Just got Castle Grayskull in. It's quite lovely even though I'm slightly miffed I messed up one of the stickers.

>seconds away from peording green goddess because of my snakegirl fetishIf anyone has proof that her green skin is meant to be scales I'll hotglue the fig and post pics here
>>9315034It was just a weird artistic choice to make her green. There was no reason. The Snake armor could have very well tied in to the snake woman aspect but the official reason is "just because".

>>9315083Man needs a maid?
>>9314772There was a post on one of the previous threads about some of the staff behind the scenes how the fun and earnestness of the show was sincere.
>>9315034It gives you an excuse to have a Tella figure use her headdress for a purpose if you did. The idea behind it was that the headdress could make her figure into a new character-- the Goddess. I think they made her green to differentiate her from Teela. Plus snakes are green, I guess.>>9315044Mine hasn't shipped either. It just keeps sitting and waiting in my account. Never shipping.

I got my Scareglows shipped from Creations a few days ago. Has anyone else got theirs yet?
>>9315122It only makes sense
>>9315124The Tri-Klops is also shipping, provided of course you didn't bundle him with anything else you ordered.
>>9315124did you get in in hand yet? if so post pics you sexy beast you!
>>9315129I lurked .org in the PC thread and someone said their Scareglows shipped independently from their Sgt. Slaughters.
>>9315131No. I'm international and Creations doesn't allow for tracking international orders so I have no clue when I'm getting him.
What if they just made the 2 giants deluxe Masterverse figures, and while only being a bit taller than the other 6 inchers, they're more in scale with Origins?Would that be clever?
>>9315144We already have a 7 inch Origins body with the Andre The Giant figure
>>9315144I'll buy it regardless of how it's sold and how much bigger it is. As long as it's Origins or Origins compatible. >>9315157It angers me to no end how difficult it is to find these figures
>>9314667The weird character designs and intuitive gimmicks of the toys. Also Skeletor to a degree because Filmation Skeletor is funny as fuck.
>>9315164My Walmart doesn't even have a peg for WWFEMOTUO anymore.The next nearest walmart does, and they also had the mini vehicles, but they're still plagued with the same figure selection.
>>9315177Looks better than any of the Wal-Marts near me. The aisles are almost completely empty and been that way for almost 2 years. I've never ever seen deluxe Origins figures at any of them.
>>9315183dude do you live where i live? lol
>>9315187Wal-Mart just gives zero shits about toys. It's so rare I find anything, and I have to make a toy run to like 5 or 6 different ones over the course of a few hours, from one store to another in the hopes of MAYBE finding something. And it all depends on if you were lucky enough to make your toy run on the right day and the right time. I often skip Wal-Mart in favor of Target.
>>9315210No one here knows where your testes are. Check your mom's purse.
>>9315183That walmart is in a bit bigger and better area than mine. Now my hometown is no slouch, but all of the stores in that area were always bigger than my local counterparts, and they often got restocked on a more regular basis.
>>9315164Do you actually like wrestling, or it just autism? I loved Hulk Hogan when I was a kid, but I have no interest in buying him in a heman mold.
>>9315286I like both old school wrestling and hemans so best of both worlds.
>>9315286For me the WWE line is mainly about expanding my Origins Evil and Heroic Warriors
>>9315157That’s not big enough though
>>9314990>I'd be fine if they did other alternate non-Horde versions of Horde characters in this show.Modulok. Modulok!
>>9315144>What if they just made the 2 giants Origins figures for our Mega Construx collections?
>>9315320The giants are cool but I could not care at all for how much space they would take up. I think 7 inch is a decent compromise.

So far the new show has my interest way more than revelations.I'm liking that Adam is pretty heroic with out being he-manit has some pretty cringe momentsbut some the action is goodbut the characters are decently writtenand outside of the original show this may be the best incarnation of teela
>>9316040I like it a lot more than revelations it works by doing it's own thing instead of kevin smith dumpster fire
The show's really good so far. I'm on episode 6 at the moment. The first 4 episodes were like an origin movie. It's fun in a way that action cartoons haven't been in a long time, and it's written considerably better than Revelation.
Haven't gotten around to watching yet, but the lack of chatter I'm seeing really gives me the impression that the show might be a whole lot of nothing.Nothing to piss people off and cause shitstorms, so it's not bad, but also not good enough to excite any praise.So I'm gonna call it an inoffensive but underwhelming middle of the road kinda show. Will report back if my prediction was on the mark or not once I get off work
>>9316143So far i've been digging it. it's different and doesn't shit on the source material it's for kids but not insultingly sothe action is good and the story so far moves at a quick paceand having a not snarky and not bitchy teela helps, for some reason other iterations always make her that way with revelations cranking it to 11 and breaking the fucking knob offif you have an interest then give it a watch
Ork-0's good in this. He's a dead court magician who's mind is accidentally put inside a robot by Man-At-Arms.

>>9316040>it has some pretty cringe momentsMoments where Cringer is pretty?
how do the rules about the power sword work?can anybody pick up the sword and say the magic words and get the power?So Mattel can make a masterverse line of "everybody have the power" and transform everybody
>>9316198Thanks I hate it.
>>9316198In the new show He-Man summons the power with sword as a team leader and then gives it to others.
>>9316040What's the cringiest thing?
What's a good place to pick up older waves of Origins I missed? Amazon prices for some of them are a bit ridiculous, should I just keep checking back every once in a while to see if the sellers have updated?
>>9316198This fanart art is unrealistic. They would never show off her legs like that
OH GOD, THE MEXICAN DUB OF KING RANDOR IN NU-MAN IS THE ORIGINAL HEMAN VOICE.sorry... sorry... I got a little exited, and then there is that anon that get mad if we talk about comics and shows to much, so here a picture of king randor toy, now everything is okay
Mer-Man found a mushroom.
>He-Man is simultaneously both the jungle village origin and the Prince Adam origin in the new show
>>9316211BBTS is a decent option
>>9316223That's a fukno of the burger king.
>>9316211Okay anon, what are you missing?Best to check all the online shops. If you're near a mattel store may need to go at opening and see if they have what you need. Be warned wave 3 is the most difficult to come by.
>>9316208nothing too bad just some cringe jokes ... but it's not to badthe only thing that gave me pause was ram ma'am admittied she pissed in her helmet .... i'm not fucking joking this happened
>>9316242Great that's some weird fetish fuel...
>>9316242So did she just use it at a bedpan, or does she have some weird alien anatomy where her pee hole is on her head?
>>9316240Unfortunately I'm missing everything but He-Man/Battle Cat and Skeletor/Panthor. Just got into the line the other week.
>>9316250>does she have some weird alien anatomyI just want purple Krass to be related to Spikor, whether purple people are human or not
>>9316250>>9316262She's human and wears the helmet because it was her father's who died, setting her up to wear she could be the daughter of the original Ram Man.
>>9316268I hope it turns out that she's light purple because her dad was the original Ram Man and her mom was purple
>>9316242It's called a pith helmet because I pith in it
>>9316254W1 relatively easy to find, even better is Teela and Evil-lynn has revised legsW2 is replenished perpetually and probably the most popular wave, will show up for grabs on Amazon from time to timeW3 is harder to come by. Zodac is usually the cheapest. Roboto is the hardest to get, do not remove his arms from his torso because the little blue discs in the torso that hold his arms in like to come loose.W4 is also harder to come by now, the least popular is Stratos. Hordak can br substituted with buzzsaw version unless the gimmick and the lever on his back bothers you.W5 randomly shows up at Wal-Mart. The 200X Evil-lynn has both old knee and knees variant. The hardest to find figure is Faker. LoP Mer-Man is probably more popular (at least here he is).W6 is barely out and not even seen at retail yet. Webstor's web climbing gimmick is fiddly.Dxs:Battle armor Skeletor and He-Man are easy to obtain both on amazon and at random Wal-MartRam Man is harder to come by supposedly comes in a revision case with Clamp Champ and Mosquitor.Clamp Champ is on sale at Amazon.Buzzsaw Hordak was decently stocked at Target for a while and easy to get from Amazon at slight mark up.Mosquitor is barely out and EE and Amazon had some orders shipped.
The designs for the series are really good
>>9316330When you say come loose do you mean like, dislodging?
>>9316338yeah i really like these episode end shots. i treid grabbing a few myself but it appears i'll have to do something to be able to do that other than a native print screen or snip tool.i just finished the last episode and i really wanted that end shot of skeletor. i was really invested and it sucks that it ended i hope they get another season soon.
>>9316330>Mosquitor is barely out and EE and Amazon had some orders shipped.My patience with waiting for him has almost worn down enough to pay scalper prices. I know I shouldn't, because he's probably going to be readily available eventually, but months of delay and then just trickling him out and seeing others enjoying him is starting to get under my skin
>>9316040>and outside of the original show this may be the best incarnation of teela200X gets no respect I tell ya, no respect
>>9316369it's been so long since i've seen that one i can't remember if she had that snarky talk shit on adam attitude that alot of iterations seem to havei need to go rewatch it ... guess i need to find it
>>9316338im just 2 episodes in, and was thinking the same thing.Wonder if is this a case of the concept art does not translate the same into the final product
>>9316243I mean it's a netflix production, creepy fetish fuel kind of goes hand in hand with the brand at this point
>>9316338Seeing stuff like this makes me wish 3D shit hadnt become the norm. This art genuinely gets me hyped for the show.
>>9316377It's on youtube. 200x doesnt really shit on Adam, she just think's he's a slacker. Think mary jane/spiderman dynamic but MOTU. She's also kind of tomboyish so there'a that.
>>9316391yeah I found it ... the 360p resolution, makes me want to find another version
How's Skeletor in the new show? I don't know how I feel about the whole "Regular human man Keldor has Skeletor as a powered-up form a la He-Man" angle. Well, no, I do, I hate it.
>>9316397He's only human for the first 4 episodes origin story. Then the next 6 he's always Skeletor.
Awwww yeah. My origins Stinkor just hit my pile of loot.
>>9316409I really like these shots man, they look like something out of a madhouse or studio bones series. I wish the show looked as good as these end caps.
Ram Ma'am's easily the best character, and Man-At-Arms is easily the Marge Simpson of the show.
>>9316409>>9316338From what Im hearing the new show sounds very reminiscent of the 2012 TMNT revival. So MOTU inspires the turtles, the turtles homage MOTU, and now MOTU takes inspiration from TMNT. The synchronization between these properties is fascinating.
>>9316338Do you think the Masterverse NuHe-Man toy is going to look like that?In that picture he looks with normal human proportions, which would fit better with the line and they dont need an extreme new mold
>>9316436It does have a 2012 TMNT vibe to it. >>9316438I'd be fine with either or, but with the the more realistic look, he could blend in more with the other figures.
>>9316409thanks for grabbing that pic i really wanted it
>>9316443>>9316438given how mattel likes to reuse mold i'd be very surprised if they didn't use the first masterverse he-man buck to make most of the cgi version
I think the new figures are like closer to tmnt scale, but that's not too bad. Not sure if I want Skeletor's boner throne though.
Do you think an origins Mekaneck will have the extendable vintage action feature or just have a removable extended head like the classics version?
>>9316471They're 5.5 in supposedly. I'd like to see if the throne can fit an Origin's Skeletor in it. But either way I'm going to buy into the new line at this point.
>>9316487It'll extend and twist like Roboto probably. Wouldn't be surprised if they thinned down the interior mechanical neck to fit in his torso.
>>9316487He'll likely have the feature, I've got no doubt in my mind that we'll get a deluxe mekanek. Though I also expect Matty to double dip. It's likely we'll get a deluxe Mek with the feature intact and a regular release mek without the feature, focused solely on the articulation
>>9316492Hopefully the neck is removable though so we can buy multiple figures to create a super neckbro to peek into the bathroom at the top of Crystal castle.
>>9316505don't forget to use the store exclusive variant colour mekaneck necks to help make your mekaneck tower better looking.
>>9316389Unless it's a high budget production, you will never see anything come close to looking as good as this illustration in animated form, 2D or 3D.
>>9316330Thank you so much! I've already pre-ordered Mosquitor, Stinkor, and Webstor at BBTS at least. Good to know a couple of them are still showing up at Wal-Mart though.
>>9316338Evil Lyn looks so fucking hot
>>9315870MURDERED A MONKEY, CUZ HE'S A MAD JUNKIE
>>9314743where does one acquire the 200x harness and loin cloth for origins figures?
>>9315928The show got some stupid yet funny jokes and this one was awesome. I mean jokes about motu lore is one thing but jokes about the toys now that is next level
>>9316254Amazon Mexico has them at really low prices most of the time (Skeltor with vintage head is at like the equivalent to 12 bucks), they ship FROM the US, so surely they deliver within the US in spite of you buying in Amazon Mexico.
>>9316492>I've got no doubt in my mind that we'll get a deluxe mekanekI doubt it. He'll have the feature, guaranteed, but his feature isn't exactly complicated. It's comparable to Roboto's.Mekaneck will be standard.Come to think of it, they could just do his neck like extendar's, and you just pull it up rather than requiring a twist action. That would be even simpler and have less affect on poseability
>>9315865I like the part where skeletor was naked coming out of the havoc pool and trap jaw's jaw drop when he saw his dick.
>>9316598King Randor looks even more like CD-I King of hyrule now...
>>9316600>After you've scrubbed all the floors in Eternos, then we can talk about mercy
>>9316549I think he took them off a 200X figure
>>9316642the harness i get but the loin cloth ? .... i need to look at mine and see if it comes off. if so i may get another just to have a set of he-man variants maybe skeletor too
>>9316645He might have broken a vintage 200X figure to take off the loin cloth.
I just got to the point where Skeletor is using the Snake Mountain microphone to talk to Heroic Warriors outside.
>>9316650I admit I made S O Y face during that scene. It's a fun moment.
>>9316600>NuHeman gets a videogame>Its a Zelda CD-I clone
>>9316598Honestly? I think I love this.
That was fun. I like how Skeletor was a goofy motherfucker but at the same time he felt like a real threat expecially with that ending. Now I really need that devil-lyn figure.
Ok, I'm two episodes in, and it's actually impressive how much better this is than what I expected.Teela isn't gratingKrass is bestCringer is a well done subversionEvelyn and Kronis make for effective antagonistsDuncan feels like a misstep so far though
>>9316694Duncan's pretty boring at the moment. They set him up like they're eventually going to get to some character development for him, but it doesn't happen yet in these first 10 episodes.
>>9316694Duncan was the worst part but he wasn't horrible. He's got potential but so far he's the weakest part of the show but he's very helpfull.
>>9316678Can you do an edit of Cd-i link as revelation Adam?
>>9316694>Teela isn't gratingyeah that's a big plus for me i hate how she's always a cunt. I don't recall if she was in the original but in the comics she is, in revelations she is a mega cunt, and i'm currently 6 episodes into rewatching 200x and she's shit on Adam in every episode
>>9316730Teela even in the 80s show shits on adam for "running away" and tells he mam that he's based unlike adam all the time too. But there and on 200x it feels more natural.
>>9316738To be fair on Teela on the comics, Filmation and 200X, she's the captain and her duty is both protect AND train Adam, and Adam (intentionally in the comics and Filmation) acts like an uncaring, pampered dickwad, getting into bar fights for fun (in comics) slacking off to do shit to amuse himself (Filmation) unaware he's in reality the hero she admires.Plus the's the crown prince, it's kind of understandable she'd be stern to Adam.
>>9316748I never had a problem with teela for that. Only in revelations where it was over the top bullshit levels of being a cunt.
Figures of this when?
>>9316756Revelation was written by people who obviously don't understand her character and think being an illogical bitch, and immature person is "strong and independent".
>>9316748>>9316765Ram Ma'am basically is the new Teela, and is a better Teela than Revelation's actual Teela. Teela was always Prince Adam's tomboy childhood friend.
>>9316765To add to this, I've noticed in a lot of media it feels writers forgot (or new writers don't know) how real people are like
Just finished episode 4>that Snakemen shout outOh, I like where this is headed
>>9316819It's wonderful the literal kids show is better than Revelation. Hopefully Mattel will see this is what the fandom truly want and one day we'll see another He-Man kids show that embraces more the barbaric motifs over the technological ones, and a proper She-Ra show aimed at children, not at the mentally ill.
Clownfish drops their inevitable review of the first 2 episodeshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6UnYmGfcwI
Just finished the new show and it rules. It’s like they took the top 10 filmation characters everyone loves, removed the filmation, and showed us a majority of their origins. Some of the dialogue just fell flat to me but when it has a good joke it’s a REALLY good one. Skeletor is great! Ork-0 is great! Evelyn is hot as fuck. It’s doing all the new things I wanted from MOTU but keeping everything that worked. It would be a 10/10 for me if they just had a better intro.>>9316861Clownfish is lame as fuck
If you had to choose one Mer-Man in an Origins collection, would it be the normal version or LOP?
>>9316878I liked it too. It was a refreshing take, that while different also respected the lore. He-Man's origin even goes back to his original vintage toy, having him be from a village in the jungle and mixes it with some Tarzan, where he's really a prince, but he didn't know it. I also appreciated the underboob they gave to Evil-Lyn in her normal Evelyn form, and actually allowing their women to be feminine. I feel like the show is building up almost like a prologue laying the groundwork for being more like the traditional set-up for the Filmation series, where they will eventually live in the Castle, since Randor says he needs a new "Man-At-Arms," and meets Ork-0.
>>9316878>Some of the dialogue just fell flat to me but when it has a good joke it’s a REALLY good one."Narcoleptomania!"Tuvar and Baddhra are already based
>>9316861I understand watching clownfish opinion. but just comming and dropping them saying "watch their opinion" specially when you could have just said "they said it was alright for now"
>>9316915I announced what it was from the get go, and you can choose to watch it or not, you don't need to be spoon fed like a li'l baby.
>>9316757is that catsquatcn fella inteded to be beastman or panthor?
>>9316952Skeletor says in the show he wants a Battle Cat for his birthday
>>9316959that's kind of disappointing, I prefer gorilla esc beastman>>9316964Nice, one has to wonder just how much they have planned for the series. It seems like the writers have alot they want to get to. That said I wish there were more villains, seems like we're keeping it pretty small scale for now.
>>9316338>>9316409Damn, imagine if we got a MOTU comic/series with the visual aesthetic of mad world/sin city
>>9316978I think at the end they hinted at triclops and two-bad
>>9316819I like how no one knew anything about the Snake Men except Cringer, because he read it in a book.
>>9316914>Tuvar and Baddhra are already basedIf they're gonna make them Two-Bad are they gonna remain on the heroes' side or the villains' side
>Battle Armor He-Man doesn't appear in the show yet
>>9317001What if Skeletor turns them evil with the way he mind controls people?
>>9317006Most likely just like the comander might be the new triclops.
>>9317001I'd guess they'll keep faction membership the same. When Skeletor gets kicked off the throne, the circumstances could be plotted such that guards who become Two-Bad stick to him.In like the first episode, Mer-Man and Avion were name dropped as allies Randor could call and didn't. So we could also get a Friendly Mer-Man who gets buttered up by Skeletor during his kingship.I appreciate this pacing. 200X threw 20 characters at us in the first episode and I think this works better.
>>9317020Honestly I'm leaning towards LOP just because of that goofy face.
>>9317004Nor do the motorcycles or the throne snake
>>9317030"Friend, why don't you just come out as a frog? Then we'd have Mer-Man, Frog Man, reptile men, bird men and Beast Man."
>>9317022And because he has an actually unique headsculpt instead of blatantly being a repainted skunk
>>9317045That too!I am 2 and a half episodes into the new show and liking it a lot. The character animation is nice and bouncy and it's interesting that a lot of the visual effects like smoke are 2D animated.
>>9317020Mer-Man fills people with joy.
>>9316861Its best not to watch outrage youtubers. They just sour your enjoyment of anything and will make you look for things you wouldn't otherwise notice or care about and get into a conspiratorial mindset.And I say this as someone who does not like the 2021 series and probably won't watch even an ep.
>>9316226Danger Mer-Man. Don't eat it.
