Boy o boy, not since Malibu Stacy came out with a new hat has there been such a reason to celebrate! This is totally amaaayyyzing. My A**, Big frikkin deal, a crap looking sword that doesn't suit the style of the figures at all. Mattel suck.

It's just an accessory that comes with a new figure who already has more accessories than most of the figures in this line. It's not something I'm really excited about, but I don't see how it's a bad thing.

I think this is great.

I like the new story for the 200X sword (though it's not really new; this was the Four Horsemen's idea for the 200X sword all along, if I understand correctly), and I'm glad they've given it a deserved place in the MOTUC canon. Plus, this helps the people who want or prefer 200X He-Man to get just a little closer to that. And King Grayskull looks way cooler with the bigger 200X power sword than the regular power sword.

Might get this guy after all. I'm just getting sick of all the villains they're dong now. Webstor, Tri-Klops, Hordak. Hope we don't get villains for the remaining releases of 2009. I guess these are minor complaints since I am still interested in this line. It helps fill the complete void that Hasbro's Transformers has become with the new movie through 2010.

Even before Webstor was announced, there were too many villains. I was kind of surprised they chose another villain for September. They've definitely gone overboard. They better go with heroes for October, November, December, and maybe January just for good measure.

Tri-Klops is supposed to come with a secret accessory too, I guess it'll be Skeletor's connecting swords?

Skeletor's swords make sense, but someone over on He-Man.org posted pictures of an opened Tri-Klops and the secret accessory seems to be the Grayskull ring that the original Tri-Klops came with.

Hopefully we'll get Skeletor's swords with someone else (or with a re-release Skelly).

No way, can never have enough villains. Heroes are better when their out numbered...lol. Besides we are getting Man-at-arms and He-Ro in the same month plus we know Teela is this year(we are getting a female and it has to be her or lynn, im guessing her) and I would bet She-Ra will be in Jan (since we know a POP figure was pushed back until next year). All I know is I really want my Trapjaw before the year is up. I will just keep hoping we wont get a Mechaneck, man I hate that character, but im sure he will no doupt show next year.

had to do this on another board too:

Good Guys
King Grayskull
He-Man
Stratos
He-Ro
Man At Arms
Teela

Bad Guys
Beast Man
Skeletor
Faker
Mer-Man
Hordak
Tri-Klops
Webstor

Neutral
Zodac

see... it's not as unbalanced as it seems. the issue i see most folks copping to is that KG and he-ro aren't regular continuity... but, they are nonetheless releases who would stand on the side of good. the balance isn't bad. if we get one more of each to fill out the year, i feel pretty satisfied.

BTW, the horsemen indicated on their chatboards that this version of the 200X power sword has some sublte differences from each of the previous versions released, so whether you have 200X he-man or the staction, you don't have THIS version of the sword. i think that's awfully nice of them.

Well if man at arms as a 2k heman sword maybe triklops will have some sort of 2k fakor sword or accessory ?!

I like the sword. What a shame that I don't get the figures.

Grabbed this pic from the fwoosh...tri-klops definitely comes with a ring, like his original figure did. No 200x swords here.

But to be honest, this truly doesn't surprise me considering that villains do out number heroes as far as the core
MOTU characters are concerned. Perhaps Mattel is just thinning out the ranks, its possible that atleast one more
hero might make a 2009 release, but I wager that 2010 will be hero heavy, which if they tap into POP it will be.
If Mattel insist on just releasing villains for the remainder of 2009 then I hope they do some obscure or never
before released character.

In one of the June 1 Q&A's, Toyguru announced that October and December will be good guys, so with He-Ro hitting in July (whom I forgot about), things will be pretty even by the end of the year.

Thanks for clarifying that. I'm going to assume that at least one of them will
possibly be Teela she's the most obvious choice at this point, however I wonder who
the 2nd one is, hopefully an obscure character.

I also assume Teela will be one of them. And with the 8-back being complete with her release, I'm curious to see who the other good guy will be. Will they branch out in a big way after the 8-back, or will they stick closer to original release order? I'd also prefer someone obscure just to remind everyone that this line is all-encompassing and not a straight rehash of the '80s releases.

im glad that the line is doing well. maybe a remake of the 200x version of the characters will be in the near future.

MAA should've been included in the subscription service. I'm guying to have a tough time ordering him at work cause the guy the sits opposite from me doesn't take leave on Wednesdays. And July 15th is a Wednesday. Anyway, the guy at work is pretty curious and really has nothing to do except watch me from behind. I'm sure he'll have quite a few good stories to tell the supervisors if they see me wasting time buying action figures online.

Plus the hassle of triple charging my credit card for one-day shipping is just annoying. I don't trust Matty's economy shipping due to the other people's horror stories and ordered Merman and Faker with rush delivery.
