Man oh man! He looks amazing! I love that his head and collar are separate and it's a cool way to secure his cape to his body too (unlike the old figure.) Love that he gets tons of accessories as well.
I have ZERO problem with his armor. I think sometimes people are just a little literal. It doesn't really effect his overall look at all.
Man this review was awesome! Hordak is so freaking cool.
I love how they kept the head as a separate piece.
SLUSH HEAD FINALLY SHOWED UP IN MOTUC YAY!!!
Hey what a great review with so many pics! Hordak is awesome!
Including Hordak, there are nine figs released thus far though, and this is the first one that I haven't been keen on- so for the most part, I have been very pleased with what Mattel and the Horsemen have released. It just got to the point with Hordak where it would take more time, energy, and money to customize him/ get him to where I personally want him, than I could justifiably muster- and they are already $30 a pop- so I just couldn't justify it. But, again, I think the line as a whole is awesome, and there is bound to be a figure along the way that each individual person isn't going to be crazy about- unfortunately for me, it was Hordak *sigh.* I do love the character however (and the Horsemen's work ).
I looked at the pics of Hordak from the last Con for many weeks now and looking at these pictures from Swoosh it looks like they made his face more orange now.
Please PLEASE say itīs just the lighting on the pictures and I have nothing to worry about.
Itīs way too orange, it has to be more of a broken white, like the original figure.
I donīt like a Hordak with an orange head Mattel!
Is it just me or have you noticed it too? Anyone?

Great review!! Love the detailed pics!!
Of course, this type of intense quality control will raise the price of each figure to $478.00, since only one out of every 200 or so will be considered acceptable.
Those are some great pics!
Selected art prints now available:
Just like everyobody here, I'm thrilled and excited to get Hordak !
He looks incredible ! A very impressive figure !
Saw this the other day…man what a great figure!! I can't wait!
200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!
Hordak looks sweet. I can't wait to get him...MOTUC is getting better everyday. I just hope we get Marzo eventually.
I think he looks great.
Still perplexed that he is being released this early in the lineup. Would've expected some others before him but oh well.
... still think the armor is weird also.
However, 200x/MYP got rid of the Etheria/horde connection. Even on Hordak's bio it says he's trapped in Despondos and has been trying to get back since King Grayskulls time. Doesn't really leave room for baby stealing.
Personally for just that reason, I really hate the Despondos angle. Seems poorly thought out. Heck if they bring back the 'mystic wall' concept than even skeletor wasn't around for baby stealing....
I'll be very interested to see how they tie She-ra in, but just on what we have in front of us, They'll have to do some fancy writing to tie in the Horde.
Ok gang, He-Man.org's Hordak finally showed up, and I've got pictures for ya!
I'm working on the video review now, and will get it to Val as soon as it's finished!
Awesome photos! I like the new feet. Are those all new? The paint does look a bit splotchy in places but overall I'm still very happy with it.
