    Prince Adam vintage, Origins and commemorative.

    Sadly the purple color on the legs of my original Adam figure has faded a bit with age. On the upside his belt elastic is in surprisingly good shape.

    I don't think the vest on the Origins Adam is really meant to be removed but it can be done with difficulty, if you remove the head, arms and pop the torso off first, if you want to swap it out for a fabric vest. Adam comes with a full sword that is from the same mold as the one from the comic con set and is too big for his hand. The MOTUC Cringer is in perfect scale with Origins Adam. He was actually a bit under scaled for the larger Classics figures. I really like the brighter cartoon colors of the Origins Adam over the darker maroon of the vintage and commemorative figures.

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Vintage and Origins Skyled.

    The new one is larger and much more detailed. It also comes with interchangeable parts to change it into the villain doom buggy version of the Sky Sled.

    ^I will admit, as a kid, I was glad the Adam figure DIDN'T have a pink vest. I know it's unenlightened of me, but 8 year old me never cottoned to the "girl color" vest.

    That being said, I like the new figure a lot. I think that head sculpt works better for Adam than He-Man, for some reason.

    I never thought of Adam as having the lighter vest because I wasn't into the cartoon when I collected the line. I'll admit that I loved tjhe Shazam!-inspired redesign of Adam in 2002.

    The 70s and 80s really didn't seem to have the hang ups on colors we do now. In the 70s Batman and Six Million dollar man came in pink cards and boxes. In the 80s hot pink and neon colors were everywhere. It was just a cool trendy color at the time.

    ^That's true...but to me, "pink" equalled "girl" by the early to mid 80s. As I said, I was an unenlightened 8 year old, so don't judge me too harshly. ;-)

    Ha! No, I don't think anyone will be judging 8 year old you.

    I actually feel bad for kids who couldn't go into the dreaded "pink aisle" in toy departments. They missed out on a lot of cool stuff.
