    Great shots, Dan! I can't wait to see another of your wicked vids!
    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

    How soft is the loincloth? Could he sit down?

    he's also now the "Evil Leader".

    mistake or no, it is what it is.

    and three places on the card hardly convinces me that it's a mistake.

    Er, it was a mistake. Just because it happens three times doesn't mean it's less of a mistake. They just called him the wrong thing. Obviously they INTENDED to call him that until they realized it was wrong in comparison to past releases. But that's still a mistake.

    His loincloth is as soft as the more recent figures...MUCH softer that Grayskull's. So he should have a better time sitting.

    Yep! These feet are completely new! They are three toed like Skeletor's, but have an armored look to them.

    The video review is finished, and has been sent to Val! It should go up on the front page soon!

    Just checked the video from your web site. Awesome video. Honestly, as great as the 200X Staction is in sculpt and detail, I really think MOTUC Hordak stands well beside him and in some ways, the MOTUC figures looks more "intimidating than the Staction. Maybe becaus of the "chunkiness" of the action figure . I wish you took some pics with his armor off but left his collar/cape on so we could see what it looks like for those (not me) who hate the half-armor. Oh well, maybe next time. Come on June 15th, hurry up!!!

    Those feet should go on Stinkor! They look a lot like the Staction.
    The Top boot parts are great for Grizzler. I think we will see him soon too.

    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.
    If you think about it, the whole King Grayskull storyline happened centuries before Adora was born... So the Despondos idea isn't really a problem. Skeletor probably frees Hordak from Despondos, they have a go at invading Eternia but Skeletor betrays Hordak. Miffed, he buggers off to another planet where the Horde is a little stronger... Etheria! And before he leaves Eternia, he kidnaps Adora and everyone's happy

    Good work as usual Pixel Dan, thank you!

    The biggest problem with the Hordak is the fact that we have to still wait almost three weeks to order him. I want him now!

    It's like nobody watched the MYP cartoon. I'm not saying they can't/won't find a way to link Adora/She-Ra to the Horde, but it won't by the way we remember in the 80's since Hordak is stuck in Despondos and Skeletor & co are on the other side of the Mystic Wall.

    If you haven't read Val and Emiliano's Toyfare interview, they had some cool ideas for their 200X comic on ways of getting around that problem, while staying true to her Filmation origin. Hopefully Mattel will do something similar.

    Finally!

    Pixel Danny got his Hordikins figure for all of us to see!

    NIIIICE!

    I'm sooo loving that "fade to shadows" at the end of the review. It's soooo dramatic!

    I like the figure. I'd buy him again if the release is colored like he was in POP.

    Yeah...I keep thinking that there's a good chance that I will buy an extra Hordak, and paint him with Filmation colors. I also want to paint his creature to look like Imp. Think it could make a great custom for my collection.

    And again, I'm really glad you guys all enjoy the review! Thanks for all of the kind words!

    The video is sweet Pixel Dan. I really like the picture of Hordak vs.KG. Of course, now I REALLY want to buy a King Grayskull.

    was kinda hoping you'd review the armor as it's the main focus fans are discussing.

    That is EXACTLY what I was thinking. Since Hordak's apparently been alive for hundreds of years, there's plenty of time to fit all of those stories in!
