Can it act as a conclusion? Sure, as a fan you can see that as the conclusion to the original series. But the fact remains that the original show never had a conclusion during it's 130 episode run, it just ended.
If you're asking back then, it's simple, it wasn't advertised on the channels that I had on the cable provider where I grew up. I was able to watch MOTU when USA Network was showing the repeats as part of Cartoon Express and when they had "Secret Of The Sword" on. But that's that. I saw the commercial advertising the new figures and saw said figures in stores. I never once knew that the show was on the air. I certainly didn't see it in the afternoons when I would turn my television on and sought out something to watch.

Yes, but as we've maintained, the original show itself did not have an ending. When it ended in 1984, it was over. Mattel had no intention of funding two shows. They did sign off on guest appearances, but even then, it was still not over. TNA did come about in 89, yes. But that's also close to the 1990's and didn't it end in 90? And it is not my fault that I never watched the new series. Nor is it my fault that I don't know much about it other than a few bits and pieces.Originally Posted by Minerboh

Here's an analogy. I know about the Kennedy assassination. I know the stories that were told about it. But I never saw the whole thing. I don't know if Oswald pulled the trigger or was the patsy. I don't know if there was a second shooter or a car backfiring. I didn't see it. That doesn't mean that none of that didn't happen, because obviously it did. All that means is that I'm going off what knowledge I have of the situation. That is what I did when I said that I had not seen the ending to TNA.

Again, you still miss it. Take away "The New Adventures Of He-Man" for just one second. Okay? Pretend it didn't exist. Now, did "He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe" have an ending? No, it did not. It, like every other 80's cartoon did not have an ending. Sure, "The New Adventures Of He-Man" did come along later on and aired in 1990-91 and had an ending, which was the result of the show being a 90's product. The other show, the first show, didn't have an ending like all 80's cartoons before it. This was my point all along.

sure they can reclaim it. it doen+teven reinvent the wheel. imho the 2000 series did one thing amazingly well and that is make adam a kid. there is something awesome about that. its the same reson why captain marvel is such a great superhero when done well. its the ultimate dream come true for a kid. and then there is a fantastic world filled with awesomeness.
same goes for shera. you take the same aproach of a kid, add som e attitude of , for instance , legend of korra instead of pandering to the basest stereotypes, some good humor, and you have a great series. you dont even have to reach too far with design updates
it's not rocket science....its magic! XD
Dear lord I watched that final episode of New Adventures of He-Man...and its absolute shit. Shit music , shit voice actors who aren't the same. Shit animation and resolution. The Skeletor of the 80's would whip his 90's version.

Sucks 200 character limit.
What's more, Mattel and the writers of both the show and the mini comics were going for a "Star Wars" vibe. Had "The Power Of Grayskull" not been canceled, it would be even more obvious.
