(Commercial) He-Man pre-orders from Northstar
« on: April 11, 2022, 06:50:50 PM »
Have you seen this new game coming from Archon Studios in Poland?
https://www.northstarfigures.com/prod.php?prod=16487

I listed it on the North Star site last Thursday, went on holiday for a few days, and come back to an avalanche of pre-orders! It's one of those times you think 'somethings going on here'.

Archon are only doing a limited first run, so if it's something you'd like, stick an order in quick.

Not very interested in the game itself but I wouldn't mind a couple of the miniatures for painting.

I would love this however the price seems far too steep at 10 miniatures for 75 pounds - hopefully, they will make the miniatures available separately, some evidently are...

Maybe the terrain bits make it worth it, or if the rules are actually any good, in which case the cards and other bits gain some value and use. See: https://archon-studio.com/shop/25-masters-of-the-universe

A number of Masters of the Universe miniatures are available on the likes of Etsy.

No Teela? No Beast Man? Surely it wouldn't have broken them to include two more major characters.. it's not like I'm expecting Fisto or Webstor.

I'd assume they're going to show up in expansions for it.

I'm tempted, but not sure if I have the space and time for it

It's interesting and I would get it as a small standalone game, but already have an extensive He-Man collection in 30mm for bigger games.

Looks like the same figures from their kickstarter boardgame, but converted to hard plastic.

I assume this is a game were no one gets badly hurt in a fight and good always wins  lol. Do you get bonus Victory points for cheesy one liners?

Much as I loved He-man as a kid I have zilch interest in gaming it in the same way I wouldn't want to game the A team, Knight Rider, Danger mouse or Airwolf.

Oh, colour me interested! But looking at the gaming surface, it's grid based, which I find a bit of a let down.

So if/when the sprues become available seperately, I'd certainly buy them, but I certainly am not warming up for yet another game with upgrade set after upgrade set. Especially when it's limited to something like a grid.

I must admit to being a little bit tempted though...

The art looks more like the minicomics though

The nostalgia is nice, but it ticks zero boxes for me beyond that.  I suppose that's a good thing since I still won't buy a Prodos/Archon product.

The high level of interest reflects the average age of us on this

I didn't watch the cartoon that much, but this is very pretty. If I'd watched it a bit more, I'd probably be tempted.

Now ... a Thundercats game ...
