    MOTUC Demo-Man bio/figure discussion and speculation

    So they modified Skeletor's bio:

    Merging Keldor™ with the extra-dimensional being Demo-Man™ from Despondos™, Keldor™ was forever changed into SkeletorŪ,


    Demo-Man???

    Alright, if I can buy He-Ro I guess I can buy Demo-Man, but.. I mean, really?

    Demo-Man? Demo-Man?
    With all the interesting connections that could have been worked in with existing characters there was really need to came up with a new one?

    I thought this was a joke at first. Then I went and looked. Weird.

    "Demo-Man"????

    on matty's skeletor page, his bio says hordak combined keldor with "Demo-Man (tm) from Despondos."
    anyone have any insight into this????
    on the org photos of the packaged skelly, the bio just says combined with an "interdimensional being"... this matty page bio is the FIRST i personally have ever heard of "Demo-Man"... something i've missed, or might this be mattel trademarking a NEW character for a new toy in this line????

    "Despondo" or "Despondo-Man" woulda been better.

    Demo-Man sounds like it would be the name of a MOTU knock-off figure in the 80s.

    For sure a character named Demo-Man was never found in any document we have from the past incarnations, so I would say I'm 99% sure is a new guy.
    Given the name, the intersting thing could be speculating on what his powers could be....

    I hope this guy makes demo recordings for Songster,
    or has a cool vehicle that he uses in the ultimate Eternian demolition derby.

    Otherwise...

    So does this mean that there are 2 different packaged versions of skelly already...meaning the interdimensional being cardback will be very rare.

    Sadly the first thing that popped into my head was Demolition Man. Maybe he explodes like Blast-Attak or Marvel Comics' Nitro. He could be a demon, Demonic-Man of sorts... Hopefully we'll get some more information about Despondos via some medium though. Hopefully this turns into a good thing. We can hope, right?

    lol... either way, how do you all feel about the fact that apparently whoever demo-man WAS, he's essentially just a forerunner character who we learn here ultimatly becomes, essentially, one half of skeletor. kinda like tuvarr and badhra becoming two-bad, now it seems keldor and demo-man became skeletor. i don't know... for me it seems like it kinda kills the allure of skelly abit. (similar to how, and i agree, you've all been discussing how the power of king grayskull in the sword cheapens he-man and castle greyskull.)

    Demo-Man is probably a demon/man. Only thing that makes sense to me. I think it's a stupid, stupid name though

    Most mysterious my friends. The name is really strange. Sounds like a placeholder name to me. I agree with Emiliano that this is indeed a weird story. Id prefer something simpler, and if they are gonna use a new character they could at least come up with a better name.

    Apparently so. But truth be told, I don't actually mind.

    They stated that this continuity was going somewhere with the bios,
    so if that is the case, then adding new stuff makes sense.

    Naming characters is a crafty thing, though...

    Demo-Man? That HAS to be a typo! Either way, I think the stupid name is even trademarked. If it's not a typo…I'd imagine the name is pronounced Deeemo-Man, as in Demon-Man?

    Maybe it was going to be Demon-Man but they took off the “n” thinking it would be too offensive?

    Demo man is ridiculously silly, they can't pay someone $10 to come up with a better name? I'm hoping it's a typo or place holder name Demo Man

    I wish they stuck with Infinitia though instead of Despondos.

    I don't mind either - Maybe it's pronounced "DEE-MOW" not "DEM-O", gotta stand from DEMON.

    Can't wait to learn more!
