    They snuck Shadow Weaver, Catra and Imp into issue #11.

    (As for Catra's look, I wonder if someone didn't get her and Evil-Lyn mixed up and layer a bad rendition of Evil-Lyn's color scheme over...

    This is why I've always identified three canons in this time frame
    "Primitive/Archaic"--the first four storybook/comics, the board game, and any other really old stuff. In other words, the pure...

    Randor and Duncan are around 40 and show no sign of graying or hair loss in most media (well, there's 87 mini-comics Randor and movie Man-at-Arms, but they're the exceptions). OTOH, I was starting to...

    My most anticipated figure for the past five years (since August 2009), and he keeps on looking better! The book doesn't look nearly as small as I was afraid it would look after the teaser at NYTF,...

    Jukka was asking about the '5000 years' bit--the bit that's only been mentioned in Classics. Classics 'continuity' is not DC continuity.

    One thing I really like about those--besides a long-standing love for the Towers--is the implication that there are legends and myths beyond and behind Grayskull. Perhaps there's room for He-Ro vs....

    Well, now we know why people hate the Gars in the DCU ... and it's understandable. It's also tragic in that they were pawns of an evil that was ancient in Grayskull's time ...

    So, Hordak, King...

    You might not have. If they're airing them in production order, then Diamond Ray of Disappearance is the fourth episode produced, so it would air on 6/22 by this pattern. Keep an eye on the listings.

    Fascinating and encouraging enough for me to catch up on the issues I've missed, Jukka.

    As for King Hiss' disguise ...



    This is an interesting new approach that has a lot of potential,...

    My vote, more or less (I'm not sure where I placed some of the middle folks):

    Gigantasaurus
    Tyrantisaurus Rex
    Bionatops
    Turbodactyl
    Serpos
    Dragoon
    Mantisaur
    Battle Bones

    Well, he's Powers of Grayskull era--he belongs to an older time than most of the figures we get. Put him alongside He-Ro, Grayskull and Vikor and against masses of Snake Men, and he may fit in...

    The only problem is that this figure looks so good I'm worried I might have trouble getting a hold of him, being an Evil Cherry-Picker. :) And it's the one figure I've really wanted since He-Ro.

    It's one of a handful of items that were almost released in 1987, but didn't make it to market before Mattel shut down the line. Others include Laser Power He-Man, Laser Light Skeletor, Tytus,...

    I think there's something to be said for 'digital action figures', especially if you design good display/posing/animation software.

    The real question is what happens when 3-D printing becomes...

    Hmm...given the various portrayals and evidence from the cartoon, mini-comics, etc.:

    The core 1982 cast and Ram-Man have been discussed. Man-E-Faces is probably in Eternos but not the Palace...

    Vintage toys/85-87 mini-comics take the #1 position for me, followed by 200X cartoon at #2, and Filmation at #3. There's merit in the movie, the New Adventures, and the Transitional canon of the 1983...

    Call it "Gray and/or Veena", since Classics PoG is really two different versions of that era mashed together (poorly). :)

    But despite putting Gray at the top of my ballots every tme, he's lost...

    Only 2? He-Ro and Eldor (forthcoming). I've got a lot of my imagination wrapped up in those two characters, and they never got made in vintage. Unfortunately, that means I lose Tytus and Megator, who...

    Finally. After five/seventeen/twenty-seven years of waiting (depending on if you reckon from He-Ro's release, the first glimpses of the vintage prototype, or the truncated launch of PoG), I finally...

    Which Conan were you reading? :) I'm not a Conan expert by any means, but the Conan commonly read today--the original Howard--is reportedly a different beast than what was around in the 1980s, where...

    OTOH, the clear blue Power Sword is a Classics innovation for He-Ro. The vintage version has been seen using a yellow sword in one piece of art, but otherwise relied on the Magic Staff. IMCs, that...

    Define 'fake'. :) Looks to me like a regular Rattlor where someone painted the end of the tail green.

    Back when MotU was created, barbarians didn't rage and paladins didn't smite evil. :) Heck, I'm not sure there was a barbarian class in D&D at the time He-Man was created, and the magic-hating,...
