The old one had its charm, but the 2002 cartoon was better. Better animation too.

As Wayne Cample would say
"In many ways it is superior to the original series but will never be as recognized as the original."

I'm gonna say the biggest improvements were

1. making Skeletor somewhat menacing (if still a bit of an oaf)

2. He-Man's friends were actually useful! you think o a show where you wanted to sell toys of every character, ever character would be useful, but Filmation apparently did not feel that way.

3. He-Man and prince Adam looked and sounded different. do I need to explain why that was an improvement?

So, why didn't he tell his family that he's He-Man?
>>
>>79107547
Well if I were stuck writing a reboot I'd say because they'd freak out about a member of the royal family getting his hands dirty fighting the resident evil overlord.
Don't think there was a canon reason.

I just started rewatching the reboot. In part 2 of the 3-part pilot, the Sorceress in charge of holding the Power of Eternia tells him to keep it secret to prevent harm from coming to his family and friends

He-Man, without a doubt, has the most pointless secret identity ever.

It exists SOLELY to force drama where there doesn't even need to be.

If the entire world knew Adam was He-Man, it wouldn't put his family and friends in any more danger than they were already in.

Worst case scenario, he'd either have to stay He-Man 24/7, or guard his sword a lot more carefully when he's not transformed
>>
>>79106937
2002 He-man is to 80's He-man just as 2003 TMNT is the 80's TMNT
>>
>>79107997
fun fact, in the original toyline backstory He-man didn't had a secret identity, he was just a barbarian that fought for the forces of good, it was the Filmation cartoon that introduced Prince Adam as his secret indentity.
>>
>>79107997
He-Man originally wasn't Adam, just He-Man. An alien techno-barbarian tribal warrior.
>>
>>79108196
I am aware of this

Wasn't it something along the lines of the FIlmation suits trying to make He-Man more like Shazam or some shit that made them do that?

I'm kind of surprised to see obscure characters like that even show up in fanart, much less in quality fanart

Nostalgia faggotry and iconic value. If you watch the series and separate them from childhood enjoyment, for instance, no one would prefer the original TMNT cartoon to the 2003 TMNT cartoon.
>>
Anyone else get the minicomic collection? Despite its simplicity I actually enjoy a lot of the stories. And the Alcala art, of course.
>>
>>79108557
Yah they were actually kinda neat

>>79107543
I wasn't saying the original was better. I'm saying people will say the original was better just because it came first

To be fair, given that Skeletor--in both shows-- would always spy on the Eternian palace or really anything of remote plot interest before hatching an evil scheme around what he's seen, or corroborate it into his existing plan.

And then He-Man shows up and wrecks everything.

So, apart from the fact He-Man can punch out Satan, in general the issue is Skeletor has no idea where this do-gooding jerk keeps showing up from, and if he knew Adam was He-Man, he'd be planning all of his schemes around trapping/killing/imprisoning the alter ego or indirectly targeting him by sending millions of robots or some eldritch mud monster he brought to life to try to murder Adam's family. He may not even win in this instance but it sure makes He-Man's job alot more difficult.
>>
>>79102472
It wasn't as good. It was better animated but the character design was overall better in the 80s one (That horrid 2000s Sorceress) and the stories are pretty much on par and treat kids like retards.
It's alright, but it's wasted potential more than anything.
>>
>>79111302
It was better in basically every way. Take off your nostalgia goggles. The Sorceress looked much better along with basically ever single other design, especially Skeletor and He-Man.

The stories and animation were also much better.

2003 TMNT was the absolute shit, I'm so glad I got to watch that instead of the "buy the toys!" 80s cartoon that didn't even follow the original comics.

>>79112910
Agreed. I had to watch it every Saturday with my little brother and thought I would hate it but ended up liking it more than the original.

I also actually liked Transformers Armada because of the pay offs in the end

Transformers Armada was my jam. I also remember very little about it. Loved the later episodes where the cast got bigger and they left Earth.

No, dude. Not on the better looking female part. Filmation is known to have produced some of the most classically beautiful women in animation. MYP was just new generation west/east amalgamation stuff. You're not going to convince anyone on that.

Also the final showdown with Optimus and Galvatron was pretty bad ass. I also like their fight in Transformers Devastation. Say what you want about it's length, the writing was perfect

I think DC did it first with their first take on the "Masters of the Universe" comics, then Filmation decided to follow suit since it seemed like a good idea to them.

He-Man reboot was legit good. I wish the writers of it had worked on Thundercats.

Also Dat Evil Lynn. I swear Evil Lynn, The Baroness and Dr Blight would be part of my harem of EVIL, if i could attain one.

Armada is actually my favorite Transformers series, it's got the best artstyle plus the minicons and toys were amazing.

"Better" is a subjective term, but this is one of the most absurd statements on /co/ in a while.

Is the most recent King Kong movie better than the original due to having better special effects? No.

Nobody is going to be watching the shitty 2002 He-Man 30 years from now like they do the original Masters Of the Universe.

I wouldn't count that third one as one of those games. Wasn't even made by the same developers, just had the same look to part of it. The devs of WFC and FOC loved the shit out of Transformers itself, they wouldn't have dropped a turd like Dark Spark or whatever it was.

Really? In the Youtube the 200X's 3 part episode has the double number of views from any Filmation bullshit episode. And 30 years from now the Filmation crap will be remembered for the only reason that is remembered so far: A gay joke. Nothing more. While the 200X cartoon is and always will be the foundation for any future MOTU related stuff. For example the cuurent DC comics are based on the 200X cartoon, not the Failmation crap.
