No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

Rodimus, you're just flat-out wrong. Trump eliminated the Pandemic Response Team. Trump was advised in January that this could be serious, and he didn't listen. Trump spent weeks downplaying COVID-19 by implying it was a hoax, and then that it was just a type of flu. He was late to close down travel from China, and by the time he closed down air-travel to the EU, that was also too late. He has refused to take responsibility for removing the pandemic response team, even though he basically bragged about it some months before. He's also prematurely talked up treatments using chlorquinine that have not been properly vetted as yet, and he keeps calling COVID-19 the "Chinense virus" because he can't help but be a jerk. Face facts: Trump is an incompetent bungler. Period. Full-stop.

I saw some of the original series, and never really liked it. Too simple plot and everything. I did like the New Adventures series, for it had pretty good animation for its time, though I understand the whole space setting must have upset the old fans.

I watched the new series (2002?) and loved it, too bad it ended just when they were about to introduce Hordak.

Yeah. She-Ra had an episode about book burning. The Horde wanting to destory any books that tell about how they didn't always rule so that the children would accept "That's how its always been" and grow up to be complacent to being servents. While He-Man had "Oh no, Beastman's opened s Zoo and captured Cringer!"

Thing what you want about Filmation, but you just can't deny that they were genuinely learning and improving throughout the 80s. There's a clear curve of rising quality if you compare MOTU, She-Ra and Bravestarr.

I can very much agree with that. Qubo Night Owl shows them almost in order (He-Man, then She-Ra, then BraveStarr, and finally Ghostbusters) and while they all have the same basic premise (Ensemble enemies banded together vs Team of Heroes) Each show brings something more to the table and tries to mix it up rather then staying statically to the formula.

On a related note, were the different appearances of everything ever explained in any sort of fiction, writer's bible, or other context? Or was it simply a "time passed, this is how Eternia and everyone looked when this new adventure started" kind of thing?

No. I don't think it was ever reallymeant to be connected to the old continuity, cartoon wise at least. I think it's just supposed to be like many of our TF shows, just another continuity that begins with He-Man and Skeletor.

QUOTE(DarkDestroyer @ Dec 20 2010, 10:10 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Not to mention that Marlena and Randor finally discovered that Adam was He-Man in "New Adventures" so I don't see how that theory works, it's interesting and i suppose if you wanted you could retcon that into your own personal continuity if you wanted.

Dark Destroyer

I thought that was pretty cool. But in the old Filmation series there is an episode where Marlena hints that she knows that Adam is He-Man, you know despite the clever disguise of a dark tan, deep voice, and very little clothing. I forget the specifics of the episode, but I seem to remember Marlena looking at Adam and saying "A mother knows her son."

If they include NA He-Man they also have a choice of origins for him, the cartoon and the pack-in comic origin.
Personally I like the comic origin.

Watch the first 8 episodes of She-Ra this week, and surprise how interesting it was.

Really enjoyed it. Shocked that Adora doesn't turn into She-ra till the end of the 3rd episode. That was impressive.

That was good, but remember it originally aired as a movie. A local theater would (I think it may still do) show this during the early mornings to kids.

But I'm a little disappointed (I doubt this is ever brought up again) that She-Ra should have an emotional connection to Shadow Weaver and/or Hordak having raised her since she was a baby. She must have some emotional ties to them, even though she was brain washed (IIRC?).

The stuff I've read (Wikipedia, James Eatock's blog) seem to all say that NA was supposed to take place after the old series, not to mention the title, "New Adventures," seems to directly reference the series which came before it.

It's definitely supposed to take place after the Filmation cartoon. Teela shows up on one episode (though looks very different).

So, I've run into a slight problem here. I want to fill in my DVD collection, preferably with the best versions available of each set. Those seem to be the BCI ones, though they've unfortunately gone out of business. So even though there's a complete She-Ra series set now, it's apparently bare-bones.

Plus, there's that nifty DVD bookend mural that the other sets have going on.

My problem? I'm not sure which DVD sets from the 2002 Mike Young series are the ones I want to complete that.

Shopping on Amazon, I see several sets with different covers and different publishers, and I'm not sure which is the one I want. And He-Man.Org's DVD section doesn't seem to have them pictured/listed.

So, can someone help me identify which sets are the ones I want for that series?

In addition, if you know a good place with prices that will leave my wallet in a non-weeping state, so much the better. But for now, I'm more concerned with finding which sets I want to get, so I can at least add them to my Amazon Wish List for future reference.

You know what I find interesting about He-Man? Is that we've never really had any novels (if at all) from the franchise. I would think the fantasy aspect of the franchise would lend it's self extremely well to a book. Conan has novels. I can see no reason why some publisher (TOR) for instance hasn't made an offer to Mattel for the publishing rights to MOTU. A movie (if one ever emerges from development hell) would have a novelization most likely. I would pick up MOTU novels in an instant.

Taking your comments into account, you're going to want to start out with this one. It's a Best Buy exclusive release of volume one inside a slipcase that continues the mural. It's out of stock, so you'll have to hunt around elsewhere. Then you'll just pick up volumes 2 and 3 and slip 'em in there.

(Prices on Amazon for 2 and 3 look good, so you should be good to go.)

Which ones on Amazon do I want for 2 and 3? As noted, they seem to have about two different ones of each...

As for that set... I'm out of all sorts of luck there, since Best Buy's American site doesn't ship to Canada... hopefully eBay will help.

Does Battleground Teela actually have any fiction behind her or is this just random throw out a Teela day? I'd rather they gave us a New Adventures style Teela really.

I'm guessing King Hiss is based on the 80's style there. Love the replaceable torsos I'm guessing. And LMAO Preternia Disguise He-Man has the Cosmic Key from the live action movie! Now we need a Gwildor!

And I like the choices for the DC and Masters pairings. But man She-Ra towers over Supergirl

I saw that Best Buy exclusive in store back when it came out, and I'm still kicking myself for not getting it! I had already bought the regular release from some other store, and was just too lazy to buy the exclusive and do something with the other one like return it or something.
