Don't forget that we saw Zelacia intact in the "Powers of Grayskull" episode.Originally Posted by pennypunk
As for my reaction: OMGOMGOMG!!!! Brilliant issue!!! Sweet Mother Mercy, I'm tearing my hair out that they won't let you finish this! I love the way you handled Keldor in the past. I'm 99% sure that's who it was, but I love the way you preserved the mystery. And the way you tied in the Havoc Staff was perfect! I don't know how all this connects to what we saw in the "Price of Deceit" flashbacks, but I know it will be interesting.
I'm glad you found a way to show us some new designs, but dang do I hate that you couldn't name these people! I'll take a guess at who the members of the Council of Wisdom are based on (though they are not necessarily the same people). From the picture on page 6, going left to right:
1--A fire person, possibly an ancestor of King Helios if not Helios himself. Great idea to use the Fire Armor Skeletor as the template!
2--Some kind of alien-looking teenager. I don't know who he is, but he has Tri-Klops's colors if that's a clue.
3--He-Ro, looking sweet!
4--Eldor, looking a little different than I thought he would but still very cool!
5--A woman from the blue race (Guar?). I want to say she's a young Shokoti, but my guess is she's somebody new and might be related to the White Lady from the cover that never was. Given her mean cold-heartedness, I bet she resembles somebody in the legal department of a certain toy company.
6--A guy with She-Ra's emblem. He-Ra? Light Hope? That guy opens up a lot of possibilities.
7--A Starchild. I say "a" and not "the" because it appears to be a boy. I dare say he is my favorite of the bunch!
8--Big Turtle guy. I have no idea who this could be, I don't even recognize his race. A Repton maybe?
9--Another Blue person, but this one is an old man. He's too big to be Vormus, but I find the presence of two blue people most intriguing. I wish we knew more about this race, the mystery is killing me.
Mattel, just shut up and make these figures!!! If you're worried about royalties to whoever owns the rights of the original characters, just change the names slightly! Shakoti, Starrchild, Helius. Easy! If it worked for bloody King Hsss, it should work for anybody!
