He-Man's muscles ARE magical, but pretty much every male character in MOTU looked like Mr. Olympia.
(I had this book, and a couple of others when I was a kid. Would be kinda cool if Revelation Teele leveled-up into the cobra-armor Teela)
Why is she wearing snake armour, if she's not from Snake Mountain?
That'd be like President Reagan (a very long time Ago) wearing a babushka in Texas on the fourth of July.
She stole it from the corpse of someone she murdered.
What a psycho.
The sorceress totem based on greyskull magic is the falcon. What if Teela's totem is the serpent based on snake mountain magic?
So, this is what the new "He-Man & the Masters of the Universe" CG series looks like:
Prepare for a whole new level of internet outrage.
No overmuscled women here, I'm sure the neckbeards will love this!
Well that's certainly a different take on the subject matter...I'm not into it (it looked like a bunch of kiddie videogame cutscenes), but then this clearly wasn't aimed at me.
Looks like a Nintendo Wii game.
Eh. I'll stick to the Kevin Smith stuff for now.
The new He-Man and the Masters of the Universe reboot is for a different audience and that's okay by me. It doesn't look like something I'd watch. Too CGI. More cyberpunk/steampunk than space fantasy. But I'm sure the kids will love it.
Final season of The Clone Wars, and now The Bad Batch, spoiled me, I'm afraid. Lucasfilm Animation raised the bar so high with it, all the other made for TV / streaming computer-generated stuff looks like dogshit to me now.
Hmm. Very revisionist, but it looks fun. Interesting that the whole team transforms rather than just He-Man and Battle Cat. And they're actually making use of the "Masters of the Universe" concept in a way previous versions never have in my experience. It's promising. It looks like it's finding entirely new potentials in the IP, which is more worthwhile than just indulging in nostalgia for an old version.
And Robo-Orko? Interesting angle.
I'd say, rather, that it's for the same audience category, i.e. preteen children, which we have long since aged out of.
As I said in my previous post that only a snippet was quoted, "the kids will love it."
Kevin Smith said that Revelations is just as much for the people who grew up playing with the toys and watching the original Filmation show as it is for their kids.
The creative credits and voice cast of the CGI He-Man series, courtesy of io9:
Grey Griffin as a villainess? I'm sold.
Some other usual suspects -- Yuri Lowenthal as the young hero, Fred Tatasciore as the deep-voiced authority figure, Tom Kenny as the comic-relief sidekick. All good, solid choices.
Things that will offend the haters: Teela is black, and Ram-Man has been gender-swapped.
I love it that Skeletor has the same voice actor as Beebo. Although it seems that Ben Diskin is doing something of a Mark Hamill impression here.
^ "Ram Ma'am", I'm torn as to whether that's brilliantly great or brilliantly awful
It can be (and is) both!
Shouldn't a gender-swapped Ram-Man be Ewe-Woman, though?
He-Man, She-Ra, Ewe-Woman, Me-Tarzan.
I'm sure that's what the haters are going to say, anyway.
You mean they'll speak broken English without verbs? I can buy that.
As I've said before, Ewww.
Why did you quote Ryan's post yet expurgate the part that basically said what you then said?
