I cannot disagree, the original figures were badly designed too. But it was 1985, toy design standards were pretty low back then. Not only that, aesthetics in general are always progressive. The comparison standard for me is the Masters of the Universe Classics line which is perfectly designed. Nothing to complain about, a perfect retake for the adult collectors (and our children). As for the Lion-O statue, it's pretty sad because Bandai's designers probably just worked by seeing that instead of being actual fans of the show. And I don't blame them, it wasn't available in Japan... But when something is wrong, somebody has to be blamed and this probably is Warner who selected Bandai instead of a company with designers familiar with the franchise.
