Images of the first few figures from the more kid-focused MOTU cartoon coming to Netflix. This is NOT the 'Revelations' cartoon.

Yargh, they look quite, quite awful. One thing is to be modern, or in line with the times, and the other is try to make everything look identical. This looks like a fusion between Power Players and the modern Max Steel.

I mean, if the faces were properly painted, maybe they would be passable.

Sadly, nowadays, something for kids is synonymous with something "preschool". Toy figures seem to be only for kids aged 6 and less.

I think the assumption, and honestly it's probably not inaccurate, is that kids over the age of 7 or so nowadays are quicker to move away from action figures and toward electronics. Makes more sense to market heavily to the under 7 crowd if the statistics show that the 'over 7 and plays with action figures' demo is pretty small.
