Already started with Tweeterhead ...and I already like how She-Ra and Teela look in that line. Not sure if I want to start this line too.
Probably pretty easy to snatch up any license that want since its all 1/10. I'm guessing thats why its so easy.

Good point.

1/10 is a less competitive space too unlike the other scales.

That's probably why Iron Studios is charging an arm and a leg. They used to be a relatively good value but the MSRP has skyrocketed in the past year or so.

But I do commend Iron Studios for balancing releasing statues for both old and new IPs that fans love. I can't think of too many high-end companies that are releasing such a wide breadth of pop culture collectibles from all generations.

Where else would I get a Willy Wonka statue other than Iron Studios? I've enjoyed collecting their Jurassic Park line as well as their modern MCU/DCEU too.

Not to mention, Iron Studios does a better job of completing a line. For example, Hot Toys will release a Harley or King Shark for Suicide Squad but then bail on the rest of the cast, whereas Iron Studios usually puts the whole team up for preorder at the same time.

Oh man ... Already?!

Now have to make the hard decision, collect this line too or not.

Wondering if Tweeterhead will make him in the new 1/6 line. This is tempting.

I haven’t watched the new Netflix stuff, but when I think of Prince Adam, I used to think of someone of a fit stature, not someone built almost as big as He-Man.

That is the correct concept, but this piece is based on the old Filmation cartoon and vintage figures... both who used the same body as a cost saving measure.

From MYP 200X forward, they've made strong efforts to show Adam as a much smaller and thinner body type than his alter ego.

As Alex said, the Iron Studios Prince Adam is based on the old animated series. I can't wait to see their future pieces.

Honestly I completely forgot about that.

But rewatching a clip it puts me to mind of Clark Kent / Superman and his glasses? or maybe even worse as He Man / Prince Adam didn’t even wear glasses.
