He-Man Anonymous 02/24/2021 (Wed) 23:42:37 No. 9813
A new He-Man cartoon is in the works. Not the Kevin Smith one but one made for children rather than by a man child. Thankfully this more than likely won't be another mess like She-ra. This is obviously a much more toyetic design philosophy going on. So they're actually trying to market it to boys.
>>9813 >sword looks like it's from Transformers >Battle Cat looks borderline grimdark edgy proceed
>>9814 Actually both feel like Transformers. https://youtu.be/Lj5G3O8j36M
>>9815 alright then, He-Man and the Masters of the Transformers-verse. No objection here
>>9813 he looks like a pin-head I approve
>>9813 >Thankfully this more than likely won't be another mess like She-ra I keenly remember one of the very last things they did was have a gay wedding episode and then immediately jump to Twatter with a gloating message along the lines of "HAHA WE MADE THEM GAY AND NO MATTER HOW MANY REBOOTS HAPPEN HE'S ALWAYS GOING TO BE GAY".
>>9832 Who isn't gay in She-ra?
>>9842 Hordak maybe?
>>9936 Yeah. He's pegged at most.
>>9813 I dislike the art style; looks like kid friendly video game design, the 2002 designs look better. Hopefully the toys will be good tbh that's all really I care about . >>9813 >>9832 >another mess like She-ra I just wanted a good new She-Ra dolls, but the tranny dyke completely butchered the character designs by making them look nothing like either the cartoon or the toys and using tumblrizied Ghibli style abomination, I hope she get cancer. >Twatter What the Bronies did to MLP is nothing compare to what the alphabet soup did to She-Ra.
>>9960 >looks like kid friendly video game design Yeah, I think that's their point since this one is the show for kids to sell toys instead of the one for nostalgic manchildren.
>>9969 Aren't they all for kids to sell toys? Except for She-Ra, which was to specifically insult nostalgic manchildren
>>9998 What I mean one is for children and the other for adults (manchildren in reality but you get the idea) the redesign looks like something that can be easily ported to a videogame (as anon stated) to market to children
I just wish they'd continue the 2000's He Man cartoon but that will probably never happen.
Why does he look like a forkknife dreamworks character?
>>10334 Anon they're doing that. But it's being done by Kevin Smith.
>>10345 I thought he was doing the 80's one?
>>9813 I'm not a big fan of the Skylanders aesthetic but at least the characters look like a reasonable adaptation of the original unlike what happened with She-Ra and Thundercats. Also they really need to remove his shirt. It took several looks for me to realize that he was transformed into He-Man and not still Prince Adam. >This is obviously a much more toyetic design philosophy going on We better get a brand new Dragon Blaster, Dragon Walker, and Battle Bones out of this.

>>9969 >>10007 The problem is they rely on brand/franchise and dead one that is, so displeasing the older fanbase is a bad move, it's not like transformers that keep having new shows/movies every now and then and therefore being well known to kids. Another thing, I'm so sick of how both media and toy companies in recent years act as if 8+ year old boys demographic doesn't exist anymore and everything end up as either more dumbed down kid friendly/preschool stuff or live-action shit for normalfags. >>9998 >She-Ra >Men Most He-Man fags only care about She-Ra in the limited sense of an extension to He-Man, the new reboot insult the older female fans more. >>1033 Fortnite designs are more realistically proportioned and are wonderfully toyetic . This new He-Man show designs reminds more of that failed Disney Infinity video game.

>>10360 >those eyes
>>10360 >The problem is they rely on brand/franchise and dead one that is, so displeasing the older fanbase is a bad mov Yeah, you are right, it's kinda weird to make a show about a 40 something years old franchise, I think they are expecting the older crowd to talk about the series when the "anime" series airs (Since that's how I knew about the 80s show in the first place) but in general, Idk. >I'm so sick of how both media and toy companies in recent years act as if 8+ year old boys demographic doesn't exist anymore I would say that's because 8+ children are paying with videogames instead of toys.
>>10382 It's just use as an excuse and part of self-fulfilling prophecy by lazy toy companies to churn out garbage quality toys and then say it didn't sell because muh video games. What really killed the action figure market was bad cartoons (plus CN fucking over their last good action cartoons) and Hasbro' and Mattel' duopoly thanks to buying out all their competitors.

>>9813 >be me, parent >son LOVED early 2000s He-Man, and so did I >a reboot that was actually enjoyable and didn't talk down to the kids >managed to find him quite a lot of the toys, even though they were hard as fuck to come by >ffwd to 2019 >Kevin Smith semi-woke semi-reboot announced >Great. I'm sure this won't be cancerous in the slightest because he's totally not a big cuckold faggot these days >toys come out ahead of cartoon, which is fucking insane because there's no drive for CY+6 kids to buy them >they're based on, but somehow LESS manly, than the 80s toys >not even close to the awesome 2000s toys >mfw every time I go to a toy section, there are tons of them just sitting there gathering dust If they'd just based it on the 2000s series, they'd have made a lot more money just from collectors like my son (and gift-giving relatives). If they'd held their jizz long enough for the cartoon, they'd have made more money than they currently are, and toy section real estate being what it is, they'll be taken off the shelves long before Silent Bob and the gang can make Prince Adam LGBT. It's embarrassing how toys and entertainment have lost the fucking plot.
>>10924 The toy you post is specifically for profiting off nostalgic manchildren.

>>10940 >profiting off nostalgic manchildren. When isn't it?
>>10940 >The toy you post is specifically for profiting off nostalgic manchildren. I'm not going to argue the point, but I will add that nostalgic manchildren only have so much money, so the product had better be worthy of their dollars. >pic related: Making show accurate Transformers that were better than the originals is worth it to nostalgia fags. Making Prince Adam with a fucking pink sword is not.
>>9813 Everything about that image reminds me of the clonical "Hero Shooter/MOBA" games that have horrible character designs and the same art style that looks like a mix of Pixar and Blizzard.
>>10944 >>10948 The problem is manchildren will buy anything no matter the quality. See funko pops.
(189.23 KB 1280x776 OVERWATCH.jpg)
>>10955 What's more hilarious is that those games were supposed to compete within the TF2 market, completely ignoring the game's artstyle was based on oil paintings and advertisement from the 60s. But you should be thanking Overwatch for the gay Frozen artstyle, now you can play as the kid from Baby Boss with the body of a britcuck dyke.

>>10957 >The problem is manchildren will buy anything no matter the quality. See funko pops. And water is wet, so what.
>>10979 The point is that's why shitty toys reviving old shitty toys still get made.

>>10986 And? The last He-man line that had reimagined models actually did great in the collectors market but in retail, it bombed so hard retail stores blacklisted the brand until they brought back the classic line or something that resembled the classic line which is all recent. The 200X lived and died in the early 2000s.
>>10990 Nigger you just answered your own question. Why would companies bother making more expensive toys when cheaper ones sell better even to collectors?
>>10991 There's always that one guy willing to buy a full featured unicron.

>>10957 <See funko pops. >daughter's friend is like family >she up and decides to buy us Christmas gifts, even though we told her not to >proudly presents me with a Funko Pop of Prison Break Rick >my face, my soul >tell her how much I love... that... thing >unbox it and put it on my painting table for whenever she comes over again, so she can see how happy I am with it Funko Pop is plastic stirred with the devil's penis, but I know she was being thoughtful and that matters to me more than the reddit-tier meme in solid form it represents. Now...I just have make her and my daughter start hating each other so I can throw it out or sell it to a degenerate from reddit.
>>10990 Those action figures were amazing. The sword Skeletor is holding actually separates into two so he can duel-wield.
>>10998 Yes but those aren't mass produced for maximum profitability. Only the most dedicated autists sell their organs for that kind of thing. >>11000 Tell your daughter to convince her friend that Rick & Morty is shit.
>>11014 >aren't mass produced for maximum profitability. Depends if the original run does well, not something the size of Unicron per say (Im mostly talking about size, that thing is huge) but if there's a hidden demand they'll take advantage of it.
>>11015 You won't see those kinds of expensive toys in toy sections outside of comic shops. So not really mass produced.
>>11016 You'd be surprised, with ToysRus gone, some of the collector stuff has been going to Walmarts because there's nowhere else to place them.

>>11014 >Tell your daughter to convince her friend that Rick & Morty is shit. Dude, they're teenagers. To teenagers, Rick & Morty is everything they want in a lolrandom cartoon. And at least it's not as bad as pic related's drug-induced faggotry. I swear, to get greenlit at Adult Swim, you must have to provide the numbers for your dealer and at least one feminist for references.
>>11113 If they're teenagers then you have no reason to not just say "Rick & Morty is shit" to their faces.

Some toys from the upcoming Masters of the Universe Masterverse toyline which relates to the series by Kevin Smith. These will be 7". >>10924 Mattel and Hasbro are just too stupid to make adult collector toys sold outside retailers and their shitty online stores that only serves Americans. In contrast, look at Bandai and Takara that let basically every online retailer to carry their toys and being easily available to anyone. >it's embarrassing how toys and entertainment have lost the fucking plot Explained here >>10433* >>10957 >>11000 >>10991 Funko Pops aren't toys, they're shitty Super-Deformed/Western Chibi abomination that only filthy causalfags and desperatefags (rare case when Funko Pop is the only available licenseshit merch), most toy collectors despise them. >>10990 >>11018 Most adult collector toys sold in regular retailer shops, are actually playline toys that pander to adult collectors, as you will see for ages 4+ on Marvel Legends and 12+ on DC Multiverse.
>>10924 The toy you posted is supposed to be based on the "anime" series? I think it looks fine, but for a child in current 2021 I don't see the appeal, it looks the exact same like the 80s cartoon and I find quite unexpected that they barely changed anything from the 80s design.
>>10955 Dear god, these designs are tedious as fuck, I'm glad this trend is dead already.
>>11132 Those are for the Kevin Smith continuation series.
>>11117 Skeletor is fine, but that He-man looks like garbage, holy shit.
(79.53 KB 667x1000 motu evil-lyn.jpg)
>>11117 >Evil-lyn is Caucasian white instead of jaundice yellow or pale yellow I don't like where this is going. And Battlecat's head gear looks completely fucked.
>>11132 >The toy you posted is supposed to be based on the "anime" series? The toy I posted is based on CY+whenever Kevin Smith, as far as I know. They appear to be new molds based on 80s MotU with less detail. >but for a child in current 2021 I don't see the appeal, Dude, I still have my figs from the 80s and *I* don't see the appeal. 00s He-Man was the best thing ever, toys AND show. I think the only reason 00s MotU failed is that it was on the cusp of the switch from Saturday morning network cartoons to cartoon channels playing whatever, whenever. I think it got lost in the swamp.
>>11135 I don't like how soft the sculpt is, they should use more defined musculature. >Skeletor is fine I prefer his duck feet, otherwise and besides mentioned above, he's alright. >but that He-man looks like garbage, holy shit Yeah, his face reminds me of that emo Quasimodo, Kylo Ren. >>11138 Also, her outfit looks like it belongs to the water tribe from ATLA. Of course, nobody is going to bitch about her whitewashing. >Battlecat's head gear looks completely fucked It's too smooth and too big. >>11139 >They appear to be new molds based on 80s MotU with less detail it's the Origins line. >here are the same toys we made 40 years ago but with modern articulation! Most creatively bankrupt toyline ever made. >figs from the 80s and *I* don't see the appeal Mattel milked MOTUC to death, it's a dead horse.
