I'd never even seen that version of He-Man before.
The New Adventures of He-Man. Short lived 1989 series that takes place after the first classic series. That figure looks gorgeous though.
That explains a good part of it. I don't even remember the 1989 series, and I was a certified and devoted fanatic of the original show from the early '80s! If I missed or forgot the spinoff/sequel it must not have been very good.
^ Ditto. Big fan of the original but had no idea that this even existed! Nice figure though.
It was okay. It's kind of the black sheep of the MOTU mythos. Most fans would choose to just ignore it as has already been mentioned in the thread. The premise was interesting as it featured He-Man leaving Eternia to travel into the future to a planet called Primus to battle Skeletor and his evil mutants. It is also notable since I believe in the first episode, Adam reveals to his parents for the first time that he is He-Man. One of the very few shining moments in the series heh.
The Black Series (3.75") Wave 3 Case Assortment just revealed:
Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony)
41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper
Mara Jade Skywalker
Mace Windu (The Clone Wars)
Seven out of twelve are carry forwards from previous waves, and aside from Mara Jade they're pretty questionable given the awful track record with carry forwards taking up half or more of certain case assortments over the course of this past year.
Hasbro never learns.
I thought that I'd mention that the first wave of the Black Series is available to pre-order on Big Bad Toy Store. If I get any of these...these will be the first Star Wars figures I've had since I was a little kid.
Which scale would you purchase? Classic 3.75" or the new, larger and more detailed 6" line?
I was originally going to go for the 3.75 inch line...but I think I like the 6 inch line better. They'll go nicely with my DC figure collection lol. Out of the batch...I will probably be picking up Slave Leia and Episode IV Han. I really like how Han looks sculpt and design wise.
They're doing a regular white 6" Stormtrooper, too. He won't be out until at least the third wave of the new line but he's currently on display at Celebration Europe II over in Germany.
He looks pretty great. I imagine he'll be an army builder for the folks who can manage to find more than one of him and don't mind plunking down $20 or more apiece.
God damn it, Sideshow! Stop trying to take all of my money!
Preview of new Sideshow 1/6 scale Hoth Luke and Han with Tauntauns.
Celebration Europe II / Hasbro image of the upcoming 6" Stormtrooper in the Black Series. This will most likely be in Wave 3 or Wave 4 of the larger-scale line.
Wow, that looks spot-on.
Yeah, while a handful of 3.75" Imperial troopers and Prequel Clones look as close to spot-on as you can get in that limited scale, they can nail more of the screen detail in 6" and larger and I imagine this new Stormtrooper will be pretty popular for those who can order a lot of them or manage to find more than one or two in retail stores (they ship just one character in a case of four).
My copy of Hawkeye: Little Hits arrived today. Clint is delighted...but Tasha is in for a surprise.
"Work Wife? What the hell does that mean? Who the hell is Bobbi? Who the hell is Jessica???" Comic canon and action figure "life" collide!
It'll get worse for 'Tasha since Clint's been dating Spider-Woman in "Avengers" Oh Jess is in that panel with his ex's lol.
Ah, yes. Hasbro's grand tradition of shortpacking troop-builders.
Yep, Jessica is the "Friend...Girl".
Yeah. I really need to pick up Fraction's Hawkeye. Have heard and been told great things about it!
