    So for Trapjaw, hoping for alternate head for Before and After eye stab, and able to go back and forth between 'Classic' and 'Tech Cult' flavors for both.

    My bet for both of them is that They will both look like their classic forms, both will come with soft good cult cloaks and alternate heads to represent their future cult versions, and then obviously Trapjaw will have his weapons and Triklops will have his sword.

    Should also throw in a drone for Tri-Klops too. I like that they threw in drones based off his 200X version.

    This is what I'm thinking as well. An easy way for them to do both their classic and cult versions in one go.

    It also justifies the deluxe price point based on what we've seen.

    I'm been using faker as the guide here, seeing that he comes with 3 heads and an extra armor piece w/ a weapon. It tells us what to expect from Deluxes that aren't big like Skelegod.

    I just unboxed He-Man and Skeletor! I'm happy to say my figures are without production defects unlike Skelegod. In addition, the plastic of their limbs aren't soft and gummy like Skelegod's, which is a great relief.

    Both He-Man and Skeletor have tight but smooth moving joints. I find that the hip joint detents can be navigated by pressing and holding up as I move the joints.

    He-Man definitely looks far better in person. I still don't care for the head sculpt. The size is fine and doesn't look too small but the face and hair are sub par. The neck sculpt of the buck also looks odd with being positioned forward, which gives the toys a perpetual jutting forward look with the heads like Quagmire from Family Guy doing the giggity joke.

    The chest is too narrow for He-Man. Thankfully the shoulder/deltoid joints are comically large to give the appearance of broad shoulders but the pectoral sculpt looks out of proportion for the overall physique of the buck. The harness disguises the matter so it's not a problem until it's removed but for anyone who is familiar with ideal muscle development, either through being an artist or an athlete, the small pecs on a large framed muscular male is an eyesore.

    Skeletor's head sculpt is definitely better than He-Man's but I'm still going to sculpt replacements for both.

    The Havoc Staff and Shaping Staff are great. I do wish the haft of the Havoc Staff was a little slimmer as it will stretch out Skeletor's gripping hands if left in for display indefinitely.

    He-Man's Power Sword is decent. His shield is great, I love the sculpt of the straps and how well they fit on the arm. I love He-Man's left arm bracer as a callback to his vintage toy sculpt.

    Overall, the positives far outweigh the negatives. I'm liking both toys very much and I hope future variants improve upon the buck.

    There's nice potential for customizing.

    With some modifications, the basic male buck could be a very good base figure to work from.

    Same here.

    I'm waiting to see what Savage He-man looks like. We still had this guy leaked way back when...

    Close enough to Grayskull's for me.

    No. That's actually the leaked Masterverse Windraider.

    Just got Moss Man! Really great start to the line so far. I'm still gonna cherry pick this line until it moves on to other continuities, but this is a great toy.
