I then noticed there is a loop on the on his right bracelet, just like the one that the chain is attached to on the left side. So, I couldn assume that the chain might represent some shackles that he broke free from, though, since the chain can be connected, it can also be cool to use as a weapon to choke his opponents during fights.
    It`s obvious that he was chained up somewhere at some point and broke free but where, when, and why is the question now

    I was hoping the bio would answer more about the chain but it didn't.

    I have asked the question about the chain and it will be answered in WTFWTK 2.50

    It's very cool in my view that Vikor's the very first He-Man of all and the first warrior the Goddess privileges to guard and protect the two halves of the Power Sword. He's a very rough and barbarian guy, and I like that, for it makes him more believable in his role in my opinion.

    Thanks for that! And by Crom, what a dull bio.

    Yeah, this guy is totally Conan in my house.

    The Legends of the multiple warriors and protectors of the sword of HE, are a welcome addition to the He-man mythos!!!A very robust folder of story possibilities !! I cant understand how is that a bad thing for some people who aparently choose to adhere too strongly to their childhood cannons. Wouldt you love to read a novel of the different He-men...or even better, write you own??...comicbook series would be awesome!!!!

    Vikor will not come with the Blue half Sword of He

    From the matty forum
    We wanted to include a half power sword in the same color as the full blue sword from Weapons Pak 1, but by the time we tried to add this it was too late and the costs were locked in.

    The Blue Sword from the Pak is still intended for him, and we'll try to find a way to do the half blue sword one day in the future. But alas it won't come with Vikor.

    I wonder if all the figures following Vikor will have new boot sculpts. From the looks of it there is no longer a visible peg/peghole at the ankles.





    Here's another comparison pic using previous pictures from AFi's reviews of Man-At-Arms and Faker:

    I was unaware the blue sword would be meant for Vikor until reading this quote. Was it stated previously somewhere or did we as a fanbase influence that decision? Regardless, I love finding a home for my weapons pak weapons!

    If you want Vikor to use the Sword of Gaz to protect the blue Sword of He, then by all means, be my guest

    I know, right?
    I'm not a MOC collector, nor a completist, but I bought Three of these just because I really dig this figure. Kept one MOC, another Loose, and the third one was customized to Conan.

    So true! When I got Vikor, He-Man ended up in a box - & he's still there. Vikor is one of the best of the MOTUC bunch, IMO.

    He's easily one of, if not my most favorite out of the entire line. The only problem I have with him is that he tips over flat on his face and can't be posed without falling over. Combination of loose ankle joints and the heavy cape I guess. I've got some Grayskull stands on order, maybe they'll keep him stable.

    He shouldn't have loose ankles with the new ankle joint. You might have gotten the rare loose ankle.

    i think people keep overlooking my fix suggestion for loose ankles:

    Use the clear elastic bands that come with the figures to make a knot around the articulation then wrap it. Cut the excess.

    Easy as pie.

    Elmer's Glue works good. pose the figure the way you want and squirt a dab of glue in the ankle or knee joints. Let it dry and your good to go. If you want to repose it just move the joints and the bond should break. Plus it dries clear.

    Mine has the tightest ankles of any figure I've ever had.

    He still is balanced weird, but clever posing takes care of that.

    Many of my weak ankle guys take clever posing to get them to stand. "Action ready" poses, heheh.

    Tri Klops still likes to jump to his death though.

    Yep, it's definitely a throwback to the earlier loose-ankled figures. I know it's not common for this figure so I'm guessing I'm one of the "lucky" few with this problem.

    Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. I've been trying to pose him somewhat mid-stride like the original Mark Taylor sketch, which I've come to realize is absolutely futile since he can't even stand straight on both legs! I'm hoping with the Grayskull stands I can accomplish the pose I want.

    Then it's off to play the waiting game until Demo-Man comes out so I can finally finish the Vikor/Demo diorama I've been picturing since I first saw the Taylor sketch years back...
