Click through for some pics and thoughts about the items in Mattel’s booth at Power-Con!
The April 2012 figure was pretty shocking to me. I didn’t really think we’d get another classic figure in a row for 2012, but here we are. Thankfully the 4H decided to use the Beast Man body for this guy rather than the straight Mer-Man repaint.
I’m also glad they included the blue tanks and mask on the 2002 inspired head.
I think the second Stinkor head is going to make for a great Felinor custom base.
I’m not sure what this extra piece is from.
The Mighty Spector
This 30th Anniversary character created by brand manager Scott Neitlich has a bit of a 90’s comic book character feel to him.
I noticed a bit of a playing card theme on this one.
This guy looks like figure perfection. I don’t really know the character that well, so I can’t comment on how closely his armor matches with the originals’, but I like the looks of this figure.
The scaly upper torso looks a little different from the existing monster buck bodies. It makes me wonder if they will be able to re-use it for other lizard-y characters or if it is one piece with the upper armor.
This one was a shocker, completely unexpected. The evil warriors often rode griffin creatures in the 2002 cartoon, and I thought they might be a possibility at some point, but I never imagined them re-using the battle cat body for this creature. I have to say, I like the effect.
I love the scratchy battle damage all over the Griffin’s beak!
Nice beak 4-eyes. I really dig the way this figure is looking. I’d like to see some more pics of him with his wings in different positions with riders.
I love the blast effect.
I envision a lot of SHO-RYU-KEN poses with this guy. I never thought I would be so jazzed to get a Thunderpunch He-Man, but this figure is shaping up nicely.
The Star Sisters were a bit farther along in production than they were at SDCC. They looked to me to be production figures.
I like Jewel Star’s translucent parts a bit better now in production.
Here’s Draego Man again just because he’s awesome.
