Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 08:46 PM)

For me, it's "chocolate therapy".

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 08:32 PM)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 07:28 PM)

Stupid, delicious Ben & Jerry's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 06:42 PM)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

BGC?

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Enjoy the fudgy icing of this Hostess Cup Cake!

@  Telly : (21 February 2020 - 02:31 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2020 - 08:44 PM)

And now I know and now I know and now I know that you can hear me, know that you can hear me, know that you can hear me.

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2020 - 08:31 PM)

Oh, oh, people can you hear me? People can you hear me? People can you hear me?

@  Echowarrior : (20 February 2020 - 06:39 PM)

Let me go-o-o-o!

@  Telly : (20 February 2020 - 05:41 PM)

Galileo Galileo!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 February 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Very very fright-ning me!

@  Sabrblade : (20 February 2020 - 04:02 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (20 February 2020 - 03:46 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 February 2020 - 03:33 PM)

Already did. It didn't take long.

So long as nobody onboard actively says that, or even alludes to it. We can at least have some tiny semblance of hope for this.

No you see, Prime Wars was accurately predicting the future quality of Game of Thrones when comparing themselves to it.

I never thought about it that way, but back then GOT was good but then things went downhill rapidly thanks to HBO giving into the wims of the showrunners and that never should of happened as people begun setting a standard for these types of shows. My standard for this He-man is going to be low, mainly due to the fact they are saying its carrying on the story of the original cartoon and as I recall, there was no real plot beyond single eps, then I wasn't a serious fan and I didn't know about things called shedules as I was just a kid! Personally, I think they are betting on the wrong horse with this project if they are planning to make it a contuination of the original series, if Mattel were smart, they would of said no to contuining on from the original and instead opt for the smarter route, called reboot, start new with a clean slate, maybe adopt the desgins of the 80s thou honestly that armour He-man wears has got to go, its so out of fashion! For the whole Adam is He-man, they should make use of what the last Cartoon did, show Adam as someone who not physically strong until he under goes the transformation into He-man!

Here's what I'm expecting:

Story and writing will be on par with GI Joe Resolute...meaning it will vaguely connect to "what you vaguely remember" from the old cartoon and comics.  So in GI joe's case, Duke and Scarlett were the pair, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow were the rivals, and Cobra Commander was a  ruthless terrorist leader.  But for all its faults, fans DID get some great action sequences (the kind we would never see on a kids cartoon) and a menagerie of great character and vehicle designs for both sides.

 

At the very least, because they're using the same production studio as Castlevania, we'll at LEAST get better animation than the garbage we got for the Prime Wars Trilogy.

 

 

Meaning it will be hailed by vocal sections of the fandom as the greatest thing ever to be made for the franchise...regardless how mindless and hollow it actually ends up being.

That would be the most hoped for outcome yeah. :) Much like the upcoming Netflix WFC series.

Now we wait for more images and a teaser. And an idea of the voice talent they're going to get for this.

I got the feeling it won't be able to come close to fitting into those Shorts, I expect massive egos to be making up much of the baggage! Only time will tell!

Erika Scheimer, who voiced various characters on 80s He-Man and She-Ra, said in an interview that she felt comfortable working at Filmation as a lesbian and added, "Filmation was one of the gayest places in town."

 

What I'm trying to say is they should make the cartoon "in the spirit of the original one!!!" by having an ton of LGBT characters.

Nah, I meant LGBT characters as legit characters, not punchlines.  (Man-E-Faces x Ram-Man.  Ship name: MannyxRammy.  Which by the way are nicknames they already have for each other in the episode that is already super shippy.)

 

As it happens, I've been binge watching a lot of 80s He-Man lately and I agree that a lot of the fanboys do not remember what it's like if they think episodes with intense fight scenes are in the spirit of the original.   For being centered around barbarian muscle-men, He-Man is a very gentle show.  (G1 Transformers exists in a much harsher universe.)

 

I was watching an episode where He-Man is faced with a huge demon.  He defeated it by sternly lecturing it, then becoming friends with it.

Oh yes, He-Man definitely operates/should operate along the same lines of a well-written Superman - Exhaust all other options before going to the punching. He is the best at punching, and he will definitely win if he goes for that, but that doesn't mean that he likes it.

Sony still has the He-man and the Masters of the Universe film slated for March 2021, but rumors have started to circulate that they are looking to offload some projects to streaming services like Netflix.  The broad concern is the brand's relative value in pushing a major theatrical tentpole, and the sheer costs to market such a film.  Cited in the article are flops like MiB: International, which was very unlikely to recoup the enormous production and marketing costs Sony dumped into it given the response from audiences prior to release.

 

With Netflix hungry for content (and having already heavily invested in the franchise), Sony is looking to partner with Netflix to reduce risks and offload some of the costs.
