Anyone else excited for the return of Power Lords?

I'm new here. I primary collect MOTUC but I am actually excited to see the upcoming Power Lords toys from the Four Horsemen.
I remember the original Power Lord toys from when I was a kid. I never had any mainly because I thought they were the ugliest and creepiest toys I have ever seen. The whole two face thing with Adam Power might have been a great idea but was not that great in execution. Sure it was great to be able to change the character from one form to another but the fact the toy had no back and could not be seen from behind bothered me. Even Adam Power's vehicle looked like a big ugly shoe
Seeing what the Four Horsemen did with MOTUC I am excited to see what they have in store with Power Lords and just like MOTUC I hope they ditch the action features of the toys and sculpt some really nice looking figures modeled after the original Power Lords art work or comic:
Hopefully we will see more in a couple of weeks at Toy Fair in New York.
What do you guys think?

Pics from Toy Fair... What do you guys think? I love the look, but the figures kind of look like a late 90s, early 2000s DC Direct look. I dunno, I was hoping for a little better articulation.

Yes POWER LORDS!
I have been waiting for this reveal for a long time and now we have a look at what the toys will look like and after a couple of decades Lord Power finally has a back The sculpts look fantastic!
After being spoiled with the 6" - 7" scale of my MOTUC, DCU and NECA figures I was a little dissappointed to hear the Power Lord toys would be in the 3.75" scale but there are a couple of positives I see: (1) as someone else already mentioned this will keep the costs down and (2) this opens up the possibility of vehicles.
I saw one of the original drawings of the Powership and it did not look like a big ugly shoe It looked like a pretty sleek looking vehicle. I hope we see some vehicle prototypes or at least sketches at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con.
BTW, just to get caught up with the story line I was able to pick up the complete original comic book mini series from DC comics on E-bay for just .99 plus shipping. If you are interested in Power Lords I highly recommend you pick up the comics now. It is a great way to get to know about the story line and not have to worry about the original ugly toy designs. Something tells me once the news of these toys spreads the price of these comics will go up.

I really hope so. I guess we will hear more at Comic Con but if there is a subscription set up like MOTUC I assume they would be able to pump out all the characters and if the line does well hopefully some vehicles.
