I think I've heard "I Need a Hero" more times this past week than I have in the past several years.

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Base XO is definitely unstoppable.

As far as I can remember, 2002 Stinkor only had one fart joke. In his debut ep when he chose his new name. I really enjoyed 2002 Stinkor. He's the only staction figure I bought. Loved how he was treated as a credible threat, like how he was fighting Mekanek and Man-At-Arms in the return of the Snakemen 2 parter.

As long as we don’t get the Snake Men openly eating prisoners, I’m cool with the new show. That seriously turned me off during the last reboot on Cartoon Network.

Dude, Snakeface turning the henchmen to stone was terrifying! When Merman got petrified then fell and shattered, everyone just ran for it!

It was unfair cuz Tri-Klops could have survived it, with, I dunno, turning off his eyes (seeing as one of Kobra Khan melted one of his eyes and we saw what's underneath). If Stinkor was smarter, he could have flooded the room with his smoke to stop all visibility.

It was just too much of a Deus ex to have Skeletor just snap his fingers and revert everybody in the next ep. Like, he brought Merman back to life, yikes.

Also, originally, Adam was going to be different than He-Man in the Filmation series, but it was cheaper for them to just use the same animation models for Adam and He-Man. Remember, Filmation was trying to keep American animators employed during a time when everyone else was shipping their work over seas. So they made the cheaper choice whenever possible.
 


I didn't know this was why, but that's pretty cool. Fits well with Mattel's parts reuse MO, too.

That was the modus operandi of the series; absolutely no tension or drama with Status quo being god above all. Learned that very well during the first few episodes.

Yeah, Alan Oppenheimer, so... I don't know how large his role will be but he's definitely a big deal.

So easy to forget what a stupidly, inconceivably brilliant cast it is.

I really, really hope that Stinkor isn't just a series of fart jokes.

Stinkor is in Origins, not Revelations. So far.

Oh man, I HOPE we get the Snake Men!! I've always loved them and I remember being disappointed when they didn't properly appear in the OG show.

 

King Hiss was one of the last MOTU figures I ever got (still have him complete too!), and one of my happiest days was when I finally completed the whole set of vintage Snake Men.

He's apparently in Revelation, played by Jason Mewes. Which doesn't fill me with confidence.

I am super onboard with a big, chunky, modern-looking (for better or worse!) kid-targeted MOTU line that I can give to my 5yo without worrying about him breaking any of my crap.

I know it's a short trip from here to oversaturation and death, but I love to see a property like this spinning up separate toylines so there's something for everyone. What an astounding renaissance MOTU is seeing right now. Will it last? I don't know. Sure as hell going to enjoy it while I can though.

That's what I'm wondering. I hadn't really heard anything about MotU in years aside from some niche toys. Now it's all over the place. I'm really enjoying this.

I'm not really digging the designs up above, but that's okay. If the kids get into it, it still keeps He-Man alive for another generation. Meanwhile I still have my Origins collection I'm working on.

Those new toys aren't for me, I don't really care for how they look. But as others have said, I really hope that kids love them because I'd love to see MOTU come back in a big way!

I dearly enjoyed the 2002 He-Man but only got the toys because of how the new guys got portrayed. Though that really just applies to Tri-Klops (he's the tech guy now!), Stinkor (underdog! Underskunk?) and Marzo (he needs to be around in every incarnation now). I would have gotten Fisto and Roboto regardless cuz they're old favorites. But I got the variants of Stratos (Sky Strike) and Ice Armor He-Man because they were just oof.

I'll definitely get Fisto, Stinkor, Tri-Klops and Roboto (when they appear). And probably one regular He-Man and Skeletor. But everyone else, I'll see how they're portrayed in the show. Or unless they're reeeeally well done and sculpted.

So the new toys are largely sculpted by an internal team at Mattel rather than the Horsemen, who only worked on Mossman. That'd explain why things seem a little off.
