    The interesting thing is that the DC mini-series (and the Year 2 DC comics) introduce a lot of the stuff that was later identified with Filmation--Prince Adam, Randor and Marlena, Teela's connection...
  2.  NA   I'm aware of the Italian introduction for the...

    I'm aware of the Italian introduction for the 200X cartoon, but not a New Adventures one.

    EDIT: And a little more digging on Youtube brings up the...

    The precise quote from p.267 of Creating the Filmation Generation on the SoH concept: " I don't think we had Skeletor have any kids like Skeleteenager; after all, who would bone Skeletor?"

    I note that the grammar on the bio makes it sound like King He-Man and Sorceress Drissi were the ones who nearly killed Marlena and Orko ... :sklol: :hmblsh:
  6.  200X   Now that's just cruel, Jukka. Funny, but cruel. :)

    Now that's just cruel, Jukka. Funny, but cruel. :)
  7. The Gar/Infinita connection comes from Emiliano's...

    The Gar/Infinita connection comes from Emiliano's 200X bible. I don't think it's been brought forward into Classics.
  8. Peg warmers typically don't run for four waves...

    Peg warmers typically don't run for four waves over two years. :) The line didn't catch on like the vintage line did, but it apparently did well enough to justify a full season of the cartoon. (I...

    A 'dwarf warrior' concept drawing that eventually became Ram-Man can be found in the Power & Honor Catalog, and dwarf and elf characters were considered for the earliest versions of what became the...

    I've heard the UK comic was better yet. I really wish someone would reprint those for the US market, MotU, PoP, and NA alike--they may not be as epic as Transformers G1 UK, but they seem to provide a...
  11. *Sigh* I keep forgetting about the...

    *Sigh* I keep forgetting about the Etheria/Despondos shoehorning in Classics canon in this context. No, I don't like it, why do you ask? :hogrin:

    I'd guess Phantrox is a replacement for Phantos when the latter got promoted from moon to planet. Insectica sounds like it might be Sweet Bee's homeworld.
  13. Did you see the analysis of the non-English...

    Did you see the analysis of the non-English versions of that passage I did a month or so back? In French, it's simply "the one whom we serve"; in German, it's "the great Nameless One"; in Italian,...

     MOTU   Um....what? MotU will always be my first...

    Um....what?

    MotU will always be my first love, but Transformers have a depth of mythos and breadth of characters that Eternia has never managed to match. And racist? Are you just judging it by...
  15. I remember working with the "Keldor is the...

    I remember working with the "Keldor is the Unnamed One" conclusion when working out a proposed background for Skeletor for the 200X revival with Matthew Ratzloff, so it was in the air pretty much as...
  16. Hmmm.... "When evil threatens Eternia,...

    Hmmm....

    "When evil threatens Eternia, Granger is enhanced by the Power of the Universe channeled through the Sword of He."

    So, does this mean that he doesn't become Battle Lion until after...
  17. I still say that "Keldor as the Unnamed One" is...

    I still say that "Keldor as the Unnamed One" is not 100% proven, and there's as strong or stronger evidence for Hordak in the role. :) But neither one would really work with the Classics continuity,...
  18.  MOTU   And as I said on the channel, THAT (the original...

    And as I said on the channel, THAT (the original design) is what the Unnamed One should have been and looked like! :)

    On the quote from the pastor that you repeat, that "you can't beat demons...
  19. The final episodes of the Lost Missions also...

    The final episodes of the Lost Missions also expand on this, and the midichlorians date back to the original concept in the 1970s, from interviews done with Lucas back then.
  20. I think it could be solved if the right material...

    I think it could be solved if the right material could be found--again, is there more to that "Secrets of Grayskull Preliminary Story Outline" from the SDCC artbook? But while I'd love to see the...

    Good point, but a counterpoint: To state that "for the purposes of MOTUC the mystery IS solved" is one thing. To state that a '30-year-old mystery' has been solved is another. MOTUC has deviated...

    It's a better fate for Lord Soth than what he got in Dragons of a Vanished Moon. :) But then, while I loved Dragonlance, I love Ravenloft more, and wish he hadn't been forcibly removed from that...

    This does not solve a 30-year-old mystery.

    Scott pretty much admits that when he says "back in 2009 when we decided who the UNO was and what his story was." If it were to be the solution to that...

    Question: What is there interesting in this story that couldn't be done by just continuing the main storyline sequence? It feels like a 'next generation' for the sake of a next generation--Dare and...

    No, that Scott is basing the Son of He-Man era off the proposal that evolved into New Adventures, rather than the more familiar Lou Scheimer proposal.

    I'm not a fan of either version of the "Son...

    It wasn't the dominant narrative, but it was out there. He-Man and other toys and cartoons tended to get slammed a bit less than heavy metal or Dungeons & Dragons, but there were complaints.
  27. Poll:  MOTU   I'm fortunate enough to own the original catalog,...

    I'm fortunate enough to own the original catalog, and I treasure it. I'd love a second volume, perhaps containing the package art as well. (80s package art was some of the most gorgeous stuff. I've...

    Busta, I love you, but this might have been better done as a split between an Episode Commentary for the episode itself and a Trivia video for "She-Demon of Moon III". There were all sorts of things...

    Well, how much of that was Scott?

    Licensing kit from 1987: "Power: She has the power to light the way in darkness. Her weapons against the darkness are her staff and headress [sic] which glow in...

    This is from the second, movie tie-in promotion--Gwildor is the key indicator, as well as the logo.
