Today on Facebook, Matty took a moment to show fans some early pictures of Batle Armor He-Man:
He also comes with his heroic Battle Axe just like in the famous painting of Battle Armor He-Man on top of Battle Cat. (anyone have the art book?)
Matty also lets us know that the white outer boxes will now have the name of the figure printed on the outside, as well as giving us our first look at the bio for Battle Armor He-Man…
Real Name: Adam of the of House Randor
To adapt to new enemies and situations, Adam has learned to tap further into the great power which his sword unlocks. The combined Power of the Universe and the Knowledge of the Elders is used by Adam to imagine and create new forms of armor and weapons to combat evil. His BATTLE ARMOR was created to protect He-Man during his early battles with Skeletor and his evil warriors. Using the Power of Grayskull, He-Man, The Most Powerful Man In The Universe, is now shielded by his mighty BATTLE ARMOR.
Personally, this is the He-Man I’ve been waiting for since Classics was announced. I’m not sure if the armor being a separate piece can capture the same aesthetic the old one had, but I’ll be more than happy to check this version out come January!
