He-Man (Grayskull Armor) from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe by Mattel


   I’ve not watched by way of two episodes of season 2 of Netflix’s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and I am actually having fun with it. It is enjoyable and fairly totally different whereas nonetheless having the MOTU spirit to it. The present has been total fairly robust whereas the accompanying toyline has been a bit combined. I’ve reviewed just about every part from the present up to now (all of the hyperlinks are on the backside of this assessment) however as we speak I am testing the primary of what seems to be a brand new deluxe vary of merchandise. These figures are the identical scale as the usual 5.5 inch figures however they’ve a bit extra articulation, higher paint, and is perhaps a bit extra detailed. I have not discovered Beast Man but however I did get my arms on the merely named He-Man. The package deal simply calls him He-Man however many e-tailers have him listed as He-Man (Grayskull Armor), so I am utilizing that to distinguish him from the usual launch from final yr. Up to now within the sequence I have not got here throughout this variant but however there’s a picture of King Grayskull sporting this armor, so it is sensible that He-Man may get it as some level. This model of He-Man is extra dressed than any He-Man earlier than which makes him fairly distinctive. Let’s check out this model of the Most Energy Man within the Universe after the break…

The Details:

Peak: 5 3/8ths inches

Articulation: Swivel knees, balljointed hips, “Energy Assault” balljointed mid-torso, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel wrists, and a balljointed head.

Equipment: Energy Sword and protect.

Non-Scalper Value: $15 {dollars}


* Right this moment’s He-Man is on the left whereas the usual sequence 1 He-Man is on the appropriate. These two are the identical dimension (although the sequence 1 He-Man appears totally different since he is standing a bit nearer to the digital camera, I believe) and I believe the heads are literally barely totally different. The hair is certainly totally different (it is a separate piece glued onto the portrait) and the chins look barely totally different. Related, however technically totally different I consider.

The Packaging:



* This He-Man and Beast Man are available in at a $15 greenback value level in comparison with the $10-$11 greenback value level of the usual figures. They’re additionally packaged in a bigger field with the determine open and uncovered so patrons can check out the “Energy Assault” characteristic.

The Positives:

* I am loving this model of He-Man. He is cumbersome, brawny, rocking some cool armor, and sporting a cape. He form of jogs my memory of the Masters of the Universe Classics King He-Man determine. The beneath swimsuit for the armor is blue whereas the armor itself is gold. The Sword of Grayskull is distinguished on this armor, too, identical to on the usual He-Man’s harness. There’s even some fur lining on the collar. That is fairly cool and a properly totally different search for the primary man.


* Just like the earlier launch, this He-Man has a reasonably pleasant face. That appears to slot in with the truth that this line is clearly focused in the direction of youngsters who in all probability desire a friendlier, happier hero. I prefer it, although. He-Man’s not precisely recognized for being indignant and ruthless, you realize?


* The pauldrons on He-Man’s Grayskull armor are actually cool. Not solely are they separate items that sit simply above the shoulder however they’ve what appears just like the stylized Grayskull emblem from this present on them. I prefer it.


* This determine is articulated very like the earlier He-Man determine however now he has swivel knees (helps to maintain him standing upright) and swivel/hinge shoulders. Combine that in with the Energy Assault characteristic and he is not a foul toy for enjoying round with. I think about most youngsters into motion figures would have rather a lot enjoyable with him with out having to fret about any weak or damaged joints.


* It is not overly luxurious or something however He-Man is sporting a cool, gentle items cape. Ever because the 1987 film I’ve at all times preferred when He-Man wears a cape, so it is a hit for me.

* I am unsure if it will pop up within the present however right here He-Man’s Energy Sword snaps on to his wrist. Relatively than a deal with and hilt there’s an vitality burst impact, just like the sword has turn into pure vitality and is a part of his armor. It snaps on and appears fairly cool. It form of jogs my memory of among the New Adventures/ He-Man figures.


* This model of He-Man additionally comes with a clip on vitality protect that appears to be within the form of the Grayskull emblem from this sequence. It clips proper on his forearm and appears fairly slick.


    I am actually liking this man. Undoubtedly greater than I assumed I’d. I like the look of He-Man in armor and that is among the coolest armor he is ever sported. The articulation is best, the paintwork is best, and he will get two pretty enjoyable equipment. I am unsure he actually feels “deluxe” or something however he is positively fairly a bit cooler than the usual He-Man determine from this sequence. That is my favourite Netflix impressed He-Man launched up to now and positively top-of-the-line figures within the line to this point. Who new {that a} totally armored He-Man might look so cool? This man earns a Nice and a 1/2 from me. Severely, verify him out. I might like to see him in Masterverse sooner or later as nicely. The design is sort of spectacular.

I’ve reviewed so many motion figures of He-Man/ Prince Adam that he has his personal assessment archive. Try Fabulous Secret Powers for all of my critiques of essentially the most highly effective man within the universe!
