Although I wouldn't put it past some stupid .Orger getting mad that their collection isn't complete without some random, lame, one-off Filmation character.

Currently, there's a thread over there where people are posting lists of the 100 characters they still want. 

I did NOT mistype that.

Release two years out.  Must be a lot of CGI budgeted.

I headed over to He-man.org to check out what kind of fanboy anger got stirred up over S7's latest MOC pics and boy I wasn't disappointed.

There's full arguments over whether Tri-clops should be accurate to the actual animation cells or the damaged copies that some TV stations received that made him appear darker.

One person keeps going on rants about how Hordak is ruined because his package says "He-man as the Masters of the Universe" instead of S7 completely redesigning the package to say She-Ra for one figure.

And then there's this guy, getting way too pissy over the arbitrary bio on the back of the card. Does it look like the character you want it to? Guess what? IT'S THAT CHARACTER. Who gives a fuck what some copywriter slapped on the back?


 
Quote
I remain perplexed and annoyed at the billing that Hawke has received on her packaging ("HEROIC Feathered Fighter"), and the apparent "Masters Classics" canon "Whitewashing" of the character's treacherous past.

So, evidently, according to the Bio info extrapolated from The Magnificent Tome (which I recall mentioning being confused by when that book came out), this figure is the Masters Classics version of the character of Hawke, who, while looking just like the FILMation version, is actually Stratos' sister this time around, making her supposedly the MYP version instead (or possibly both at once??). THIS Hawke pulled a big "Betrayal of Stratos" moment in her past, but only because she was hypnotized by Evil-Lyn. Sooo Parallax cop-out. She then goes on to campaign for Stratos' job upon his death, and ferrets out a conspiracy in the backstory of his actual successor, Tufos, etc. etc.

While I am glad that this evidently means that there is no need to do a Variant figure of the MYP Hawke character, I am just wondering:

WHY. In. The. Name. Of. All. That. Is. HOLY!! can't anyone go near the odd circle of women comprising Stratos' home life without adding another layer of sediment to the already murky proceedings?? Thanks a lot, Bio writers, whoever/wherever You are!

Vent mode: Off.

I'm pleased that the figure looks as good as she does. She effectively ticks two of the "Women of Avion" boxes, while inadvertently (?) creating still another box to tick, and "X"es that too. Since MYP Hawke is evidently no longer needed, that just leaves either of two possible versions of Stratos' wife (and mother of his children), Delora!

Neither of whom, of course, came anywhere near placing well in our recent Character Poll.

Oh, well. I've been patient (sort of) this long...

Can you imagine trying to please those people?  Then, imagine that there are dozens and dozens more, all just as angry and full of piss and vinegar.  But all with complete differences of opinion, and whopping senses of entitlement.

Careful what you say abou them here if you're a member there -- they'll ban you!

Seriously though, they're the sort of people that make me embarrassed to be a fan of anything.

...Super 7 has created more drama for themselves, lol... Filmation Teela is, arguably, a virtual train-wreck, Filmation Tri-Klops now has NEON-GREEN armor (based on a animation model that never appeared on the airings of the show), and Hawke is a bland mess. On the bright side, Lodar, Fangor, Quakke, Filmation Man-at-Arms, and Filmation Hordak all look pretty good, lol!

http://super7hq.com/news/stridor-pre-sale

Out of the blue, S7 reveals Stridor with an ambitious July shipping date.

Everyone’s already pointed out his lack of paint detail, missing shield, and inaccurate helmet, but at the end of the day, I’m happy to get him. $60 isn’t as awful as the price could’ve been.

Hmmm... $60 is a tempting price point, but shipping will probably be enough to put me out of it.

I would have thought it would be at least 80 bucks.  A good portion of the ORG is up in arms about Stridor's helmet, but some are OK with it.

I think the new helmet is actually cooler looking than the original.
