I really liked what they did in that series. Especially with the transformation sequence, it really made it more of a transformation. I also loved what they did to the character designs. I was hoping they would do a new revamped She-ra series but I guess this wasn't making the ratings :s
I always had a problem with the original animation where his muscles were huge as Adam, then he just got more naked as he became He-Man. Made me think of the game Space Ace as well, where you were this scrawny kid named Dexter who turned into Intergalactic hero, Space Ace. Which with Team Fortress 2's animation style, Space Ace/Dragon's Lair could make another comeback.
I liked it when it was on, but a couple of years ago I got the entire series on disc and I got frustrated trying to re-watch it because of all the DBZ-esque posturing (delaying) and sword twirling with the one-second of actual combat.
Even with all the good ideas and concept updates, I could get back into it.
Don't get me wrong, I think it was better than the original, and leagues ahead of the (ugh) weird light-saber He man show that showed in the 90s, but I can watch the original in that laughing/nostalgia way I can with G.I. Joe or Transformers.
I can completely get behind that statement. Ooooh, he got tan donned a stripper outfit and rides a green and yellow pussy ... cat? Cringer made more of a transformation back then. Wonderful work by the way. lol
