Yeah, I saw parts for Clawful, Terror Claws Skeleton, Sorceress, Man At Arms, Stratos, and Fisto.  I wonder if these are Mattel's attempt to recoup some of the tooling costs in case MotuO flounders at retail.  Kind of gives a peak at figures "on the deck" for the line as well.

I'm kinda bummed they're not closer to the DC Primal Age and such, because I'd LOVE a Macho Man I can use with my old MOTU figures but I don't really feel like getting the new pricy stuff just so Macho Man can fit in.

That's a pretty nice update of He-Man I think. I was going to say "I hope these do well at retail" but... they won't. MOTU will never escape that Joe-esque black hole. Which isn't really fair, the MOTU fandom is much more reasonable. 


Joes problem seems to be primarily cost.

$15-$20 for a He-Man size figure is a lot more palatable than $12-$15 for a 3 3/4 Joe.

Provided they get it into enough stores and dont screw up the case ratios like last time I think it should do pretty well.

Uh guys! NEW MOTU SERIES INCOMING TO NETFLIX!

Masters of the Universe: Revelation
 
@https://twitter.com/ThePowerCon/status/1163199572132257792?s=20

I obviously have no idea how to embed Twitter posts.

 

But I'm guessing somehow Kevin Smith is involved?

 

Supposedly set after the classic TV series it involves Teela searching for the Sword of Power to prevent some sort of Universe ending scinerio and reveal the secrets of Greyskull in the process

Get ready for Masters of the Universe: Revelation, an animated @netflix show from @ThatKevinSmith that will pick up where the 80s show left off! #MOTU

It was an episodic scheme-of-the-day goofy show! There was no ongoing plot to "pick up" from!

I'll check it out, but honestly I'd much rather have a MotU spin-off of the current She-ra toon. That show is a wonderful reinvention and exactly what I'd want MotU to be.

-ZacWilliam, like I said, I'll happily give this a shot but the involvement of Kevin Smith and the concept of being a direct continuation of the original and the terrible logo on the poster all do not point in a positive direction.

That entire thing is so "Mattel handling He-Man" I can't stand it.

 

They refuse to acknowledge their piss-poor case ratios doomed the 200X line and continue to think "it wasn't similar enough to the original" was the problem.

 

Now they're launching a line of new/original figures every fan has bought at least 2x times previously and a cartoon that is not only completely similar to the original BUT STILL IS THE SAME CARTOON!

 

I forsee the older online fanbase thinking this is the greatest thing ever and will completely rejuvenate the line while the toyline dies and they cancel the cartoon after a season because the kids don't care about an 80's cartoon in 2019.

 

She-ra merchandise will continue to sell and usher in a huge wave of young female fans as the show accumulates more interest and accolades while said online fanbase pisses and moans, threatening to burn all their He-man merchandise if Mattel "sells out to the SJWs" and makes a cartoon as good and as inclusive as the She-ra one.

Something related to the new She-Ra show seems like too much to hope for - I don't know if anyone on the production side would have been interested in that, though He-Man spinning out of She-Ra would have been a pleasant reversal. A MOTU "continuation" that has to pretend She-Ra never existed is a bummer though obviously.

I'll remain optimistic until they hand us a pile of garbage... I can happily give them points for trying to bring MOTU back to life, even if we don't know how successful the implementation will be yet.

I wonder if this came about because the movie has died or whether they're happy for two unrelated projects to co(allegedly)exist.

I keep seeing the phrase "picks up where the original left off" but the original didn't "leave off" anywhere because it had absolutely zero continuing plot of any sort and zero progress or change between first episode and last beyond "She-Ra and The Horde are things that now exist."

-ZacWilliam, in response to an earlier post I was looking at She-Ra merch with my daughter in Target today. Dolls and a talking role-play sword and shield. More dolls coming too IIRC.

Yeah, that is something I picked up on.  The original show was a product of an era where cartoons did not begin or end, they just existed.  Matter of fact, I did some checking.  By the time the first shows to try and have continuity began to air in 1984, it was too late as the writing of He-man was almost over.

I have seen the dolls and roleplay stuff at Target, though not sure they are moving yet.  Been a few weeks, and they don't seem to have sold any yet.  Yet.  (May pick up a Catra myself, as she's the one character I really like in the series).

 

I do wish this show would parallel the She-Ra show, for continuity, but I'll likely give it a shot.  It can't be as bad as I am expecting War For Cybertron to be.
