I loved my Battle Armor He-Man when I was a kid, and this figure captures everything that made it a great toy. Since the armor is removable, I think I would have preferred to have flesh underneath it and sculpted abs instead of the smoothed out armor piece – that would have made the figure a little more versatile. I may put this head and armor on my original He-Man.
If you are on the fence about this figure, I say go for it, he really is the best He-Man we have gotten in my opinion. If you are just now getting into the Masters line and don’t have a He-Man figure yet, you are in luck – this one will make a representation of the main Master on your shelf. I had always planned on getting this figure even though I was not sure what I was going to do with him. Well, this one will with Battle Cat – it’s like peanut butter and chocolate, they go great together. The one quibble I think most will find is that he only comes armed with his battle axe – no sword or shield. Remember, you have to be on Matty Collector on the 15th in order to get him!
