Well, seemed a good time to bring this back up. So...
Do you think he'll follow the drawing...
OR the molded figure...
Hoping for the drawing myself. It makes me think a Demo-Man could happen one day too...
Gotta milk the molds for what its worth!
Accept the unacceptable.
I personally hope they go for the drawing. It's just so much more visually interesting.

I reserve my judgement until I see an exclusive photo or art of the figure.
This..... Ancestor or Lineage of Adam who are becoming He-Man are a bit overshadow the true powers of Grayskull huh? But I'm all in for He-Man as a 'title' of a Heroic person.
Our ancestor are praying for the wealthy of his generation, Many has come and we will wait for more.

Death is inevitable, death will keep his promise to greet you in the after life.
And god will keep his promise to judge you right or wrong. Then your soul will be there forever after.
I think it'll be a combination. I think they'll give him the loin cloth of the prototype figure so they don't have to sculpt new parts. He basically just needs a new headsculpt and new weapons.
Should have been a bonus figure.

I hope he is more than He-Man with a viking helm and pelt cape.
Its interesting reading this thread which started more than a year ago lol. I do wonder if anyone's opinion or stance about Vikor has changed? Personally, i know very little so i'll be looking him up to find out more details, though i like the drawing above. Like i mentioned in the Bikini Teela thread, i enjoy the sword and sorcery genre so Vikor sits well with me. Bring on Bikini Teela!
Vikor is something I could definitely get into. I like the idea that the title of he goes from vikings and barbarian types before a civilized man. Rougher times called for a rougher he man. Now bring on UGH- cave he man !
For me, King Grayskull is barbarian-enough for the line to need Vikor.
Most-wanted MOTUC: Madame Razz and Broom - Filmation Kowl - Granita - Hunga the Harpy - Spinnerella - Melaktha - Vultak - Dylamug - Crita
Vikor might become a very cool character/figure. But once again, it all depends on how much Mattel decided to spend on him (and a little bit on his bio too). If he's just a He-Man's head repaint, I'll pass. If he looks cool and more unique, I'll certainly buy him !
Personally, I like the barbarian characters. Cartoons borrowed a lot from them, but removed a lot of the original barbaric flavor. I'm very happy to see more barbarians integrating the MOTU universe !
Does anyone think that skull necklace Vikor is wearing could be a hint that he goes bad, or that it's just another link to Grayskull? I didn't see Gygor becoming an evil ape in MOTUC, so I kind of wonder...
I may just be biased about Vikor too. I loved the show Galtar and the Golden Lances back in the 80s, and Vikor was a bad guy on that show. Wish Mattel would forget stuff like Voltron and Thundercats and go after Galtar and Pirates of Dark Water instead.
VIKOR... hmmph.... what a ridiculous and pointless character. Vikings are just stupid. I just don't see the point of him.
Can I order mine yet??
Slayer of too many Snake Men to count....
I'm down with Vikor.
Supporter of All Eras! Including "Son of He-Man"!
I can't wait to see Vikor tomorrow! I hope he is based more on the drawing.
He'll need a new head sculpt for the longer hair and helmet. Love the cape with the necklace thingy on the bare chest; I could do without the skull though. The long loincloth could be re-used from Carnivus. or just molded on top of the furry shorts. New weapons of couse.Then everything else is pretty much the standard buck.
My MOTUC top 10 wants (POST SDCC 2013):
Madame Razz & Broom - Queen Angella - Hunga the Harpy - Peekablue - Entrapta -Mermista - Veena - Red Knight - Vultak - Dylamug
Small creatures that need to happen: Imp - 3 main twiggets
Hopefully, he will be a completely new character and not a former HE-MAN. Personally, I'm hoping he will be a heroic ally of KING GREYSKULL's, or simply an ally to one of the older HE-MEN.
If he is, in fact, a HE-MAN.... it makes little difference. I'll still buy him. Hey! I just noticed he's a southpaw!

So THAT'S who Vikor is! A viking. At the moment it sounds stupid.
For the honor of Grayskull!
