    It's sooo easy, all you have to do is click on the video (film strip) icon from your select bar, and just put your link in there:

    Yes! Definitely clean shaven MAA all the way.

    This version makes me glad I missed out on the first release of MAA, so no need to own the inferior Filmation adaptation of MAA as this one will look like vintage toy.

    Yup, and I wish it stayed that way...
    In my own world of MOTU, He-Man is still a barbarian, and Adam is just another separate character.

    Agree completely about the Vintage '82 MAA being the best version because it doesn't have the mustache. This coincides with the original mini-comics, and definitely makes the character look/appear younger. IIRC the mustache was first seen in the '83-on Filmation cartoon, and IMHO was a pointless, extraneous "addition".

    I prefer the mustache-less MAA as well, not just only because of the vintage figure, but also because of the first Alcala mini-comics... The mustached MAA looked a lot cooler in the 200X toys/comics and in the MYP cartoons

    So yeah this Enternian Palace Guard pack is very desired by many including me for the obvious reasons.

    The Eternian Palace Guard is not only a great troop-builder, but an incredible figure with a fantastic sculpt. I remember these characters from the Filmation cartoon. I like how they resemble Man-at-arms, with some distinct differences.

    I like how this new Origins version comes with a Vintage MAA head (without the mustache). Very nostalgic, especially since most post-vintage MAA figures have the mustache (which I don't like as much).

    Going along with this, I like how the box art for this figure depicts the mustache-less MAA as well.

    Haha, the upside down armor is certainly hilarious, nevertheless it can be used that way to make a new customized character!

    True, but neither EE or BBTS are usually accurate with dates from my own experience, it's like hit and miss, and mostly miss...

    He's already sold out!
    If you got 8 of him, probably a lot people did even more just to sell them on the secondary market!

    I myself got 4, 3 to open (eventually) and one to keep MOC. I'm sure Skeletor will have his own army builders down the road, the same goes for Hordak and the Snakemen.

    The big news about this exclusive figure is that you can build the vintage style Man-at Arms because it also includes the mustacheless head and his armor:

    The good news is, it doesn't have the Scott Neitlich head we got in the Classics!

    I've pre-ordered mine with some other MOTU figures and the Castle Grauskull this morning!... However I still have to pre-order the figures that I've missed from BBTS from another online retailer!
