    I got the Deluxe He-man & Skeletor. Skeletor is pretty cool. I can't wait for the regular villians to come out.

    Yes the company is Mattle, BUT it is being sculpted by the Four Horsemen now. They are former employees of McFarlane toys. I'll see if I can dig up some pis

    Ok, I'm back, I only got one pic. I have more in a ToyFare Mag I have, I just gotta let my camera batteries charge up first. But here you go:

    I've seen the designs from the Four Horsemen, it's not too bad, but I don't think it'll take like the original did. BTW, the cross on the chest has been thrown out because even though 20 years ago it didn't offend anybody, now Mattel thinks it might be offensive since it's very similar to the German Iron Cross. There's more on that in the RID thread in MISC though.

    Slayer, it's not quite that easy, though LJN is out of business, it's possible that the license was auctioned off as part of LJN's liquidated assets. However, I hope someone finds the license and is able to USE it soon!

    I picked up the basic figures (except Merman, who wasn't there) and the two cats (Panthor and Battle Cat) this morning at Wal-Mart. They also had the talking figures, but I'll wait on those.

    Basic figures: $8
    Cats: $12
    Talking figures: $10 or $11, I don't recall

    For those keeping score, it looks like Panthor is one per case (with three Battle Cats). In the regular figures, He-Man and Skeletor are very common, with one per case of the other fellows.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    These things are incredible!!

    I think in the battle of my wallet, the Simpsons just lost out big time. If Star Wars wasn't, well, Star Wars, it would've just lost.

    I plan to get all of these! I don't know which is my favorite; they're all so cool!!
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I just picked up He-Man and Skeletor at Wal-Mart today. These are awesome! This is looking to be a very promising line indeed!

    How about some detailed reviews; and also, how many found the original "Iron Cross" figure and how many found the new "asterisk" figures?

    I definitely want He-Man and Skeletor, but I'm not sure about any of the others yet...

    Here's my brief review of He-Man...

    - Sculpt/ Detail: The sculpt of the figure itself is impressive. The muscles sculpt and armor are a work of art. As JediTricks mentioned about the symbols of the armor, I have the 'asterisk' version. The feet and loin cloth-thing are well painted and highlighted. He-Man's hair sculpt looks worlds better than the vintage one.

    - Articulation: 6 points of articulation. He has ball-socket shoulder joints, that work very well. The legs don't articulate accept at the thighs, the legs articulate well. They can spread out and go up and down so he can fit in vehicles or Battle Cat (I'm assuming they are going to make him). He also has waist and wrist articulation.

    - Playability: Mattle made a great figure that anyone can play with. He can be posed in a number of ways and hold his accessories very well. The best part is the fantastic detail and that you can actually play with the figure!

    - Accessories: He-Man comes exactly what he should come with. The Power Sword, Shield and Axe. The sword is my favorite, it swivles at the base making an X just above the handle. The shield has a bar in the back that slips into He-Man's hand. The Axe is big and not a sissy weapon unlike the vintage version. There is a little loop in the back of He-Man's armor where you can store the sword or axe if he's not using it.

    OVERALL: Wow! New Masters of the Universe figures! Detail! I'm beyond impressed by Mattlel's craftmanship. When I think of Mattel, I think of babie toys. This looks to be a very promising line and Mattel could really take this line off.

    Rest asured that some toy company has the rights to Thundercats. With the resurge of all the popular 80's toy lines it won't be long befor we are bombarded with all the great old toys (i.e. Thundercats, Mask, Silver Hawks, M.U.S.C.L.E ect). Not that I'm complaining, but I like ice cream just not a gallon at a time .
    If you want to find it you have to shop.
