Once there, Hordak and his army quickly overthrew Skeletor’s royal forces and took control. From his new Fright Zone mountain fortress Hordak continued his obsession for magical secrets, hoping to use them to achieve his ultimate goal; returning to Horde World to claim the entire Empire for himself!
FLUTTERINA - Beautiful "Flying" Lookout
Real Name: Abby De’Note
After the Horde invaded her home planet and overthrew most of the local monarchs, Flutterina was driven underground and joined with the Great Rebellion. As a member of the Beautifly Council, she was magically gifted with fairy wings giving her the ability to fly unnoticed around most foes. This skill makes her an ideal spy and reconnaissance officer. After the Horde located a Laser Gate back to Eternia, she agreed to follow along with She-Ra and several other warriors in pursuit. Flutterina eventually fell in love with Randor’s new Man-At-Arms and opted to stay with him on Eternia after the Second Ultimate Battleground. Flutterina uses her powers of flight to chase off those who make mischief for her friends.
ALSO - Below is the Facebook note that Matty Mattel posted regarding the bios and the "official" MOTU canon:
Originally Posted by Matty Mattel
A lot of fans have written in and posted online asking about the new bios for the MOTUC line and if they are the one true offical cannon for the property. The short answer is "no". No version of MOTU is actually considered the one and only storyline.
There have been many different versions and backstories for many of the MOTU characters ranging from the original toy line, the Filmation series, the 1987 live action film, the 2002 series and toy line as well as new projects underway.
The idea behind the bios for the Classics line was to tip our hats to the fans and create at least one continuity which helped answer a lot of unanswered questions and tied up loose ends between different existing and sometimes contradicting tales. We do have a storyline and relationships fleshed out for most of the key characters. By the end of 2009, after enough characters have been introduced a lot of questions will be answered. (we ARE going somewhere with this and we think a lot of fans will be VERY happy with what will be revealed in the bios this year...).
But the true "cannon" for MOTU is really in fan's hands. It is how we all played out the fantasies of He-Man vs. Skeletor in our childhood and on our toy shelves today. MOTU has always been an avatar designed to allow one's imagination the freedom to create and play and invent new situations and stories. The stories fans create are just as real as the stories in the mini comics and in the animated series. The important thing is that they are all about the engaging characters of this world and the different situations they can be in.
While MOTUC line will continue to have well researched and fleshed out bios for characters, fans should always know that the imagination is limitless and so are the story possibilities for all of the heroes and villains of the worlds of He-Man and She-Ra.
PS: Yes, She-Ra is coming to the line. Look for the first POP figures to start early in 2010!.
And with that - yes, due to popular request here are the for fun bios for the SDCC Exclusive Molar & Toothless Skeletor figures based of the Robot Chicken sketch. Enjoy!
Mo-Larr - Eternian Dentist
Real Name: Dr. Moe Larrstein
When an impacted wisdom tooth or an infected molar threatens the oral health of anyone in the Dark or Light Hemispheres, Mo-Larr, Eternian Dentist, is called! Relentlessly dedicated to his craft, Mo-Larr has been known to travel to the gates of Snake Mountain™ itself to insist his clients keep their appointments! Whether hero or villain, it's all the same to Mo-Larr — the sworn enemy of all Eternian cavities!
Toothless Skeletor - Evil Lord of Destruction (non canon MOTUC bio)
Real Name: Keldor
Although lacking any skin, Skeletor’s bony exterior has left him open to oral decay and poor dental hygiene. When his wails of pain become to much, his servants Grizzlor and Beastman have been known to call upon the only known expert in Eternia who can help — Mo-Larr the Eternian Dentist! Quick to forget, Skeletor often loses track of his appointments, distracted by his massage chair and Eternian periodical collection.

You gonna update this thread every time we get a new fig?

Scare Glow was who I thought of first! I think it might be kind of neat on one hand but I liked how they set up Scare Glow in the Power of Fear comic too. So it's probably better it's just the Infinita Demon.
I'm sure this was probably discussed whilst I was away but...
Is the intention with the "Spirit of Grayskull" figure and mention here to suggest that the spirit we saw in the old comics (usually a skull-shaped cloud) was actually King Grayskull's spirit?
Then came the Keldor storyline.
I kind of like the idea of combining the two. Adds to the fact that in the Keldor mini-comic skeletor was afraid that if anyone ever found out what happened to Keldor it would finish him....
With the new origin that might imply they 'could' be seperated
on a seperate note: What is the "infinita" demon thing? Don't remember hearing about that?
As for the seperation part. It wouldn't be possible because that would mean that Keldor would die because of the wounds he had prior to the transformation.
The whole merging thing kinda takes away from Skeletor gone mad with the greed for power and the pain and trauma of losing his face.
I really hope that Scare Glow is the being that possesed Skelly. That would be awesome. SG deserves a good back story
I love the bio for Skeletor. That's some great stuff right there. I can totally envison the events we saw in the MYP cartoon working perfectly with what is written here. I love it!
Erm does this meanMortally wounded in battle with his half-brother Captain Randor
A: He was fighting a battle with his half brother side by side and got mortally wounded
B: He was fighting a battle against his half brother and got mortally wounded
The way it is worded just isn't too clear. I mean I know which one it probably is but I would like to hear other ppls thoughts on this bit of unclear wording
i really like skeletor's bio. it combines alot of dif elements.
i am not too crazy of the addition to he-man's that talks about the vest. seems to "huh?" to the casual and not so casual fan.
beast man's inclusion of an actual name is also odd. where did the name come from? if this is something completely new and out of left field i would have to say:
A why even bother? why not make his name beast man ssince that is what he is referred to.
B if he has to have a real name can it be something i could pronounce without it sounding like i am a cat with a hairball on the way?
I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!
so johnny blaze made a deal w/ mephisto and got turned into ....skeletor. neato
ya I always read it as scareglow is a ghost who works for skeley not the ghost OF skeley
Now, what if they did manage to separate Keldor and Skeletor the Demon? That would make for an interesting story. Maybe Keldor doesn't want that to happen (provided it wouldn't kill him, obviously, as that's the first thing I thought of). What was the relationship of Hordak to Skeletor before? Did Keldor know of Skeletor? Why did he merge these two? Why not merge Keldor with...anyone else?
Perhaps the Demon was an enemy of Hordak's, one who posed a true threat (makes sense, since we know The Horde does a bit of traveling)...
In order to save Skeletor and wipe out the threat of this Demon, Hordak bound them to eachother.
This leaves the big questions: Was Keldor blue before then? Or is he just possessing the body of the demon? Maybe in this new continuity, he was a white dude like Randor and family. How much of the personality is still Keldor?
So many questions!!!
Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

I don't dig some of the details, but I am glad we're getting an all conclusive back story. So this can become the "official" MOTU story. I'm glad Mattel and the 4H have taken the time to craft it. They could have easily just shoved the characters out there with no bios.

Gotcha, I didn't recognize the word
As for the merging... I like it. It explains the alien feet
After seeing the MYP episode where Hordak turns Keldor into skeletor, I became VERY against the idea of an extra "keldor" head being packaged with Skeletor. The two were very different looks. His feet and hands became more clawlike, and he did more of the hunchback kind of thing... Bonding with extradimensional demon explains that better.
Also keldor seemed to be more of a "fighter" than the "mage" Skeletor became.
I admit I like this merging of origins better than I like He-mans. i LOVE the power harness story, but now I'm confused about wether Adam just slipped into the vest and called himself he-man or what? Without the mystical transformation of the sword.... Throws the whole secret ID thing into question.
A BETTER origin would have been based off a throw away line in Filmation, where He-man comments that Sorceress made his vest from Corrodite, and it enhances his strength!
So Adam raises his sword/half a sword and becomes He-man. He-man in Corridite vest... MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE UNIVERSE!
