    I just consider it an updated version of his original 'bat thing' weapon/accessory.

    but then, I'm not a fan of the Filmation stuff.

    Hordak on card looks great!! I love the metallic highlights and even the long loin cloth!
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    I certainly do not think of it as Imp. I'm...not a big fan.
    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

    Definitely nowhere close to Imp, and absolutely an update of the Classic accessory.

    The carded pics look good. He is gonna be a great figure.
    I can't see the armor but I asume it is the belly shirt.
    Really dislike that look. I will have to see how it plays out in hand though.

    Ok, the other names were slowly eating away at me but this, this is just silly. Quit making up names Mattel!

    To bad about Hsss. I bet it has to do with G.I. Joe and the Cobra Hiss.

    Ok, you not love Filmation (I'm so sad to hear someone can say this, but I respect) but a shield don't have legs and tail, that's not a simply bat-shield, it's a creature!!!

    I never considered Hordak's weapon a 'shield' but rather an actual bat/demon creature.

    of course it's all up to individual interpretation, and I have no problem with someone calling it "imp" if that's their preference!

    and yeah, this figure is gonna look great on the shelf amongst the others.

    It definitely looks a bit impish to me. Pretty cool. I think the real name is silly as all get out though.

    I like it, but I can understand why others don't.

    but a lot of 'secret identity' names (even outside of MOTU) are ridiculous!

    think about superheroes. Are there really that many people out there with alliterative initials?

    Clark Kent (hard "K" sound)
    Bruce Banner
    Peter Parker
    Reed Richards
    Susan Storm

    etc, etc.

    granted those are all 'realistic' names, but it's still a little crazy.

    anyway, it's best not to dwell on it, ignore it if you don't like it. It's not gonna make or break anything, and it doesn't change the fact that Hordak is still a badass character.

    I don't know why they have to use the name Hsss, and I really sympathise with the fans who want things to stay the same, but it IS still pronounced the same.

    much like the Fisto debacle, Mattel had to compromise. At least it wasn't as big a compromise as "Battle Fist".
    I'm assuming it's because of G.I. Joe trademarking Hiss for 25th. As in Hiss Tank? That's the only think I can think of...

    As for "Imp", before MOTUC made it an actual creature, I thought that red thing on Hordak's arm might have been some sort of standard that Hordak carried into battle.

    That's true but that's the closets we'll get of having a Filmation Imp. Until they adquire the rights for them that is.

    He looks cool in blue. Can you also mock up a Filmation Hordak so see how he would look like next to your blue imp?

    Maybe you can do another personal interpretation about the name: Ipostor Microbic Pig and you will like it

    Ok, it was just to fun!

    Ok, seriously, his name is not Hector. I supported Squiddish Rex and I get this dribble in return of the greatest evil of them all? Hmrrrrph.

    Anywho... the rest of the bio is seemingly okay.

    He is billed as the "Evil Leader of the Evil Horde". Instead of using evil twice they should have went with "Ruthless Leader of the Evil Horde".

    At least they used the Bruce Timm art of Hordak there on the back from the mini book. Me likes

    Part of me wants to refer to him as Hec-Tor.

    but I'm not that big of a prat.

    He'll always be Hordak to me, tho I don't mind the "Hek-Tor" name.

    That's what I plan on doing, getting an extra Hordak, painting him Filmation style and his little 'Imp' too.

    I think I'm more put off that Hordak's bio places He-Ro before King Grayskull than I am about the name (which seems pointless to me just the same). KG is He-Ro's father I say!!!

    Also, Hordak is second born heir? So they're using Horde Prime? Did his UK magazine appearances make that possible, and if so did they see how Battle Brak made that version actually good? Or are they inventing someone new based on old notes like Demo Man?

    I JUST found that Hordak on ebay and was about to post the pic, but checked here first.

    WHAT?!!?!?!??!!??!!??!

    Hec-Tor???

    I mean, come ON, in America you'd have to be living under a rock for 40 years at least NOT to know that that sounds like a common Latino name... not that that would matter normally, but HORDAK isn't Latino, nor is he from EARTH... I think...

    Oh gosh - what are they doing!?!?!?!?

    Hec-Tor Kur?!!?!?

Not to mention his ties to She-Ra which is an interesting omission from his bio by the way. Awesome stuff. Hopefully, He-Ro is not too far behind as a figure.
    I wouldn't be surprised if He-Ro is the con exclusive, which is going to make a LOT of people sad OR.. he's the figure that was never made in either the classic or 200X line...

    I also wouldn't be surprised if She-Ra "happens" because there is the need... Hordak somehow escapes from Despondos... and She-Ra is the descendant of He-Ro, as He-Man is the descendant of King Grayskull... She-Ra's sword can transform... perhaps it used to be a jewelled, magical staff? Perhaps She-Ra will be more magical in this newer continuity...

    I think they will make Catra the supreme warlord of Etheria... where Adora was dumped by Keldor after he kidnapped her for Hordak? Hordak probably KNOWS that Randor's kids are descendants of Grayskull and He-Ro... and he probably told Keldor to get rid of them before is released from Despondos... as He-Ro fought Hordak before, She-Ra (even more similar name than He-Man in a way) will fight him in the present...

    Hec-Tor Kur.....


    oooookkkaayyyyy....

    I might call him
    Hordak Kur (kinda like they had Zodac Zur)




    But would have hoped more MOTU-ish name, like

    Hex-Or Kur

    I dont get this name thing... I can understand wanting to try it with guys like "Beast-Man" or "Mer-Man" cos those are like titles and they probably would have "real" names... but Hordak is a name not a title!
