    As with all the Bios so far, I'm ignoring any parts I don't like or agree with, so for me Adam is the only He-Man.

    In my own personal canon I intend to rename the Goddess and, since she's green and wearing snake armor, she will be affiliated with the Snake Men, perhaps as the queen of King Hiss.

    Still not crazy about the lighter translucent green. I wish it had darker green like one of these Orion slave girls:



    I think the last set of slave girls in the video have the most realistic green, followed by Veena, the first slave girl. The Yvonne Craig slave girl looks a bit too bright. Baena's picture of the green goddess looks similar to the last set of slave girls.

    While I don't think over-explaining names, mistakes or artist inconsistencies isn't necessarily wise, if Mattel wants any hope of having this make sense they need to have an explanation for why Blonde Barbarian He-Man, Wun-Dar, and Adam He-Man (and whichever other "He-Men" there are) have identical facial features.

    Also, why Wun-Dar wears Cosmic Enforcer armor.

    I get that the Mattel crew is having a blast sorting through all of this stuff.
    I'm sure any fan would have fun doing that, that's not in question.
    But it's not the sturdiest ground from a storytelling perspective.

    Like what, in Grizzlor's bio are they gonna talk about his dad who had darker skin?
    And the Sorceress was on her way to meet up with the "Mysterious Stranger" in her pink "party dress" when the crap hits the fan?
    Or maybe Clawful's bio will relate how Skeletor cast a spell so his legs temporarily resembled Skeletor's.

    No offense, but I just don't see the need in attempting to legitimize continuity errors just because someone remembers they happened.

    I don't like the idea of multiple He-Mans, for me it sort of takes away the uniqueness of HE-MAN, However I do see how this could explain away Wu-Dar etc.

    Ha! How the heck did I miss that? Good eye! Almost a reason to keep her in package. Almost.

    Thats a very cool touch. I am not familiar with the comic - but like the fact Mattel did a nod to it. Very cool.

    TOTALLY missed that homage! Thanks, Mattel That is very cool!

    I wish they'd included that sword too... it would have been cool to have a sword in a sheath... or JUST the sheath, and the sword could have been the one Teela has...

    That way, Teela could have a sheath for her sword (which she doesn't currently ;(

    Well, the Goddess & Wun-Dar are different beasts together because they were unofficial characters to the mythos, so there should be any anger when these 2 characters get a backstory. You know, I like how they tried to tie up the loose ends with the Goddess and pre-Filmation He-Man. Too bad the Goddess didn't get packed with a Battle Ram as well.

    So does this mean that we can look forward to an eventual release of THAT particular He-Man in that picture?

    It would be nice to get a figure that would actually be able to use that stuff.

    Yup. But not for quite awhile. And that isn't Prince Adam.

    Many thanks to everyone involved in making this line that is giving us the Goddess (finally!) and all the other cool stuff coming sometime down the road.

    But that guy could be Wun-Dar. Isn't Wun-Dar's tagline suppose to be "the Savage He-Man"?
