    MOTUC Hordak Reviews!

    Pixel Dan's video review is on the He-Man.org main page, in the May 27th news entry.

    Pixel Dan photo album of Hordak

    The Fwoosh Review

    It is neat how so much is removable.
    I just don't understand if his armor is soft plastic why it still couldn't go all the way to his waist(I don't care about the articulation).
    Atleast they painted the whole underneath black.
    It doesn't look to bad on the overall figure.
    But I still hope they find a different way to do the armor for future figures.

    Excellent review

    What was it? Someone said that his name was incorrectly labeled as 'Evil Lord of the Evil Horde' once in another thread? Is this 'Evil Leader of the Evil Horde' the correct version or not?

    Hordak is the "Ruthless Leader of the Evil Horde". Evil is incorrect.

    Best Hordak figure ever. The details on his head are great, he looks really scary and ancient. Best MOTUC so far, by far, so many accessories and cool details. I also love the silver painting... Gee, it's going to be atrociously long until June 15th...

    this line keeps getting better and better, I don't like though the high level of contrast of the images at fwoosh, they alter the colors

    Thank you for directing us to this.

    He does indeed look ruthless in some of those shots.

    June 15th is going to be fun. I can't wait to get my hands on this bad boy!
    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 find it amusing that Mattel can't find a figure with good paint aps to send out to be reviewed. It makes me feel a little better about the sloppy paint on the figures I own.

    Hordak looks so wicked,I can so not wait.I love all the removable items.

    It will be a shame if he never gets a Shadow Weaver by his side.

    My Hordak when I was little had a little swirl on his head,I wonder if my motuc Harodak will have one too?

    Love the silver details, he is sick. I can't wait. I don;t get why they had to do the half armor though if they made it soft. That still really bugs me but oh well, not a big enough issue to detract from this figure.

    After those pictures, I definitely want Hordak (or two). I don't like the short armor, but rest of the figure is owesome, so I really don't care about the armor thing.

    i'm SO happy that his head and collar aren't molded on one piece. I always hated that as a kid.

    It's a shame about the armour but it's not like we have an option. Overall i'm liking him a lot more than i originally did+


    I think it's funny ppl are saying it's the best hordak figure ever considering the only other one ever released was the original one. Are you counting the staction?

    I'd count the staction, and this may be the best one, but, yeah, it's still only out of five?

    personally, i'd prefer the staction if it was articulated. I do however really like this figure for a classic hordak

    Awesome looking figure, can't wait to get him

    The only flaw is that armour! The ab-crunch isn't important enough to sacrifice the look of the figure. Hopefully there's still time to change that for Fisto, Clawful etc.

    I'm glad they saved the ab crunch, but my reasoning may be flawed (I won't know til we see the figure).

    From the looks of it, the collar/hood may have eliminated a lot of his ability to look up and down. If it has, then I think it's essential to keep the ab crunch free so you can retain some of his ability to look up and down.

    Still the Evil Leader of the Evil Horde, though
