    That is what I was thinking as well. Let this character take on a life of his own just like Wun-Dar. Besides, I love fleshing out the cast of MOTU.

    I'm sure it'll be used, but I think that's just as lame and unimaginitive as Demo-Man sounded when we first heard it. I guess it's better than Conor the Barbarian, or Barbarian the Viking, but I still don't think they were trying very hard in those days.

    As a bonus figure, I would probably buy it depending on how it turned out. I'm really hoping they don't take up regular slots with things like this and demo-man, though.
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    I'd probably buy these. I'm all for new characters based on old concepts.

    Oh I'd buy him and Demo for sure, but only as bonus figures. As long as those two months give us figures like Spikor or Sorceress also, aesome

    I'd buy them!

    Vikor reminds me of the DC Warlord figures... and I've really gotten into collecting them recently (though, it's hard to find them, so I have, like, 3).

    NOW WAIT A MINUTE. Mattel has the rights to ALL DC Characters... so characters like Warlord, Machiste, Mikola, Arak, Hercules, Deimos, etc. are game... I bet they couldn't be MOTU figures though.

    Anyway, I'd love it if Vikor were a contemporary of King Grayskull. He could be like KG's Man at Arms type.

    Mattel has stated they will be making new characters (see my signature) so maybe Vikor falls into this category?

    Even better, it would be cool if Demo/Vikor was the very first 2 pack, "Concepts of MOTU" or some such like that.
    that would be dope!


    make "Mattel Concepts and Design's" packaging or something (part of the line) but not the Main line so you don't "Have to buy it" kinda like the 2 packs

    release them as bonus figures for the month or w/e

    I'd buy Vikor, and Demo-Man. I love the idea of new characters, as long as we get all the original characters from the 80's as well.

    Vikor could be a friend of He-Man, just like that Koldar guy in the Double Trouble episode of the classic series.

    Maybe they did the trademark just to protect the name if they let the name be known in a book

    I'm sure it's for both reasons. They have to renew trademarks for every name they use, in the book or toyline, in order to protect those names from being registered by another company (or some money-hungry fan looking for a payout).

    At the moment, they may have done so just for the book, but if they every get the desire to do a toy, hey, it's already taken care of!

    I would love to see a Vikor figure--but I don't think Mattel should try and include him as a character with a bio and include him in the MOTU canon. Star Wars did "concept figures" I don't see why MOTUC can't do the same!

    I'd like Vikor to be a previous He-Man... before or after Greyskull but pre-Prince Adam... and Demo-Man to be his nemesis.. also pre-keldor.

    I would think it is likely with the 'multiple He-man' mythos

    We don't know King Grayskull's real name yet...

    I wonder if they will use him as Vikor.

    I'd love to see a Vikor figure, and for me, I figure he'd be another "He-Man" that the Goddess works with.

    Love Tallstar's idea of a Valkyrie like wife.
    She-Ra is basically a Valkyrie like character, so to see a "patterned character" in Eternia's past makes sense to me.

    And yeah, if Vikor and Demo-Man were made, they'd be dukin' it out for Grayskull and the Sword of He.

    As a guy who collects the concept art versions of Star Wars figures, I'd be totally up for this! I don't know why, but I love the toys created from old concepts. That's how He-Ro felt to me; it's just a really cool peice to have around.

    I'd buy both Vikor & Demo-man. If they made them from the past I'd have them thrown into my current Eternia mythos.
