Faceless one looks like he's got so much armour he'll barely be able to move, but looks cool nonetheless! I think my fav of the bunch is Clawful!

Looking at that photo of Battle Armour Skelator, I'm wondering if it is just a non-functional prototype (no rotating barrel in chest) or if the add-on chest plates are there for the homage, but they just didn't want to have the old gimmick in the toy.

Those two Battle Armour toys used to be so much fun... and still are. :p

It's the same as MOTUC Battle Armour He-Man, that is to say, he comes with 3 snap in pieces - you have to remove the armour off the toy before you can switch.

The Faceless one looks freaking awesome! Very 200X like.

Catra looks fantastic, a bit less than the previous pic but still a certain buy.

Man-E-Faces also looks great, another buy.

The weapons rack is a must! I used to own the vintage Castle Grayskull and this set is a big nostalgia trip.

Bow and King Hiss area also musts, Bow is a certain buy this week (As long as Matty doesn't goof up).

Clawful is very meh for me. Looks like some guy doing a cheap cosplay but it is vintage toy accurate. I much prefer the 200X version.

Panthor doesn't look bad but I wish he were flocked - I may get him.

Battle armor Skeletor - Don't care, I have the first version and that's fine by me.

Disguised He-Man - Meh

Megator - Like Tytus, I don't really care for the character to buy.

Bikini Teela - She looks really cool but not sure if I would buy her, she is more for the very early comic fans kind of like The Goddess.

Overall and awesome line up! I am looking forward to several of these.

I don't know if it's just the camera flash, but Man-e-faces looks like the wrong colours to me... not orange enough for the skin, and too light a blue.

I took it as camera flash too because Bikini Teela looks overly bright next to him. I hope it's actually more toned down but overall I am liking the color scheme.

Love these!

Sy-Klone, BA Skelly, King Hiss, Man-E-Faces, Clawful and Faceless One look brilliant!

But my favourite of all - Bikini Teela :eek::eek: Finally... finally we get the original "correct" Teela. Well, Teela the way she should have remained. She looks freakin awesome!

I didn't realize the weapons rack had red weapons. That sucks, I was going by the original more updated but still vintage accurate pic shown before.

If it has the red weapons, I will not buy it.

What a silly 'Hasbro-esque' idea.

Would you consider painting them if you were to get them? - I know that's not the point though. ;)

I've got to say I like the looks of Man-E-Faces and The Faceless One, they're 2 very cool looking figures. :cool:

I thought about it for a little bit before posting but even if I did repaint it, I would never be able to replicate the same colors, shading and rust effects of the other silver weapons making it stand out, naturally no where near as bad as the red but still crap.

My biggest disappointments in this announcement are the red weapons followed by Clawful which just looks ridiculous. They should have gone a bit more 200X on him.

All the others are fine, As several people have said, Faceless one could be a little more faceless but it's not a deal breaker.

Clawful is still a while away from release, and it seems plenty of fans agree with you, so i guess there's a chance they'll have an alternate head like Whiplash despite what they say about not doing 200x heads.

I just love the goofy look personally! His eyebrows are just out of control! :D

He looks as if he should be a Muppet character.

Unfortunately Toyguru at He-Man.org has mentioned that all these figures with the exception of Man-E-Faces are finalized so no changes will be done.

A pity, because 200x Clawful is leaps and bounds superior to the original look IMO - Buzz-Off just manages to pass in my books, 200x did the non-human characters a lot better I reckon. :o

Probably because in 200X they actually looked like if they were totally different species from humans while still being totally identifiable as the vintage characters.

When I look at vintage/Classic Clawful, I either see some guy doing a Crab/Dragon cosplay or a 'The Fly' sort of mutant with human and animal parts in a Frankenstein sort of mix-match arrangement.

The goofy 'Sesame Street' look also doesn't help.

Big Difference:

Someone did a Digibash at He-Man.Org and there is a huge difference just by changing the head alone:

This, I would consider buying.

Who's cast their vote for the Man-e-faces deco (http://forums.mattycollector.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/4561004165/m/4391090086)?

I'm kind of indifferent towards the skin colour to be honest, but i would prefer the darker blue & purple shown in the 2nd post photoshop more than a skin colour change, which they're probably not considering. But, i still chose cross-sell colours.

I wonder if this poll is any indication of the amount of He-man fans purchasing MOTUC? Barely over a thousand votes so far doesn't seem like a whole lot, worldwide.

Keep in mind that only a fraction of fans would actually participate in the polls. I also suspect that a large portion of fans don't participate on boards at all. For example, most TF collectors that I have met outside of this board are not even aware that OTCA exists and barely know about the international communities.

I don't think they avoid the internet altogether, they either have a limited grasp of it or are not interested in fan communities.

I work in a Non-IT industry and you'd be surprise at how many people still think that the internet is not much more than just for checking your email and maybe facebook.
