    Having just watched the Pixel Dan interview, I can say that they are strongly hinting at my greatest desire:

    Vintage He-Ro and Eldor.

    Yes, I have them in Classics. But Classics, for all its...

    One thing I do for products like this (including, as of a day or two ago, the She-Ra BCI sets) is put them on a private Amazon Wish List and check it regularly. You can sometimes find bargain prices...

    The names I've been using, somewhat tongue-in-cheek are:

    "Pistolero" (From the pistol arm, Fisto head, and He-Ro armor and cape.)
    "Ki-Yaa" (This one goes back to childhood, when I imagined a...

    I thought I'd seen it all ... but a purple-skulled Skeletor with a veritable mane of red hair? That's a new one.

    (Folks, if you've gone through the P&HF gallery, there's stuff in here that's not...

    This wave might show us an interesting pattern ... the 1987 releases are about half repaints/mix-up figures like these and half new molds and gimmicks. In addition, there's some evidence (such as the...

    Exactly what the Power & Honor Foundation is up to can be hard to tell, sometimes--at least looking from the outside. They've done a great service by collecting and preserving this art, but since the...

    Not according to anything I've heard ... and we know He-Ro's color scheme, and none of these six appear to be either him or the Unnamed One.

    I've asked Emiliano, and he says 'no'--all they've got is the art, no text.

    I don't think these are PoG characters, although the predominance of Snake Men parts is interesting. I also note how...

    Everyone has to pick and choose, though. That's part of the fun--we've got a vast mythology here that can be imagined and reimagined in various ways so that it can be both familiar and fresh at the...

    Didn't Neitlich once say that they'd designed the bios to justify the maximum possible number of toys, and they shouldn't be taken as any more 'official' than any other version?

    I've been waiting for this for years, and I'm glad to finally see it. It's a fascinating look at alternate ideas; the concept looks like a blend of 200X, the original series, the plans for the...

    Bear in mind that a lot of us were invested in He-Ro, to some extent, for as much as 15 years before anyone came up with "King Grayskull." :) I was disappointed when we didn't see any hint of the...

    My explanation for the blue skin color is that it allows Faker to walk around Snake Mountain and fight in pitched battles alongside the other Evil Warriors without provoking attacks or causing...

    Official and released--I remember seeing it back in 1988 or 89.

    My own theory based on how these pitches fit together (note: this is only a hypothesis):

    Mattel comes up with the core NA characters we know and asks Filmation if they want to do something with...

    I'm currently leaning towards Zodac as Head of the Five Ruling Wizards, and a mediating force between Eldor (who champions Grayskull Tower and He-Ro) and Hordak (who's promoting Central Tower and a...

    I still think Star Comics were worse. :)

    But my problems with Second Ultimate Battleground as the time of so many deaths and changes are twofold:

    At least they kept his vintage sobriquet "Heroic Guardian of the Book of Living Spells". That's better than they did for his apprentice.

    Still, this really doesn't tell us anything we didn't...

    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

    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.
