    He somehow got his hands on a recipe for the Discworld's DWARF BREAD... Trust me guys, you don't wanna mess with dwarf bread, it's a lethal weapon.

    lol, that's the first Pratchettarian reference I've encountered in this website, and none too soon. Maybe Wun-dar can have his bread with a side order of rat & ketchup.

    I always thought dwarf bread was mined and forged, rather than baked.

    I think he was making two separate statements. We won't know who Wun-Dar is in the MOTUC line until his bio is released.

    Who he was meant to be in the original line (aside from a repaint of He-Man) will never be known, nor where he came from.

    Aside from having no effect on the original mystery, Wun-Darr will become part of the official MOTU canon once he is released. And since there's no existing bio for him, you know that this bio will be retroactively applied to the old figures as well.

    From what we've heard out of Matty so far, I'm thinking that Wun-Dar will be a He-Man from the past with ties to the Goddess, who went on to become a cosmic enforcer.

    Which is exactly why when I get him, I'll be putting the armor that comes with the Goddess on him to truly turn him into Savage He-Man

    Someone wrote that Wun- Dar is a He-man that
    people tell their children about as a bedtime story.

    I' m actually excited to read his bio but I'm not a
    fan of different He-men. I think it takes something
    away from Adam.

    pretty sure wun-dar will be a he-man that will be trained by the goddess.

    The cosmic enforcer is a better idea, I guess, since he wears the chest armor.

    i really like the cosmis enforcer idea. he could still be trained by the goddess and then after he gives up the mantle of he-man he becomes a CE since he is deemed "worthy"

    Maybe he's the human form of the first Zodac.

    Wun-Dar is an alternate universe He-Man. This time, it's Zodak who gives him his armor and trains him to become the Quantum Enforcer.

    As for his real origin, didn't someone here say that they had seen a newspaper ad from Mattel for this figure right before the whole phenomenon began? Maybe he's Adam's older brother?
    Your support means more research for the Myostatin-challenged.

    I know they'll add 'em to the mythos somehow, but personally, I'd like a hilarious joke bio!

    We haven't seen the new Wun-Dar's packaging with his new bio yet. This will be the first time that the character even really has a backstory. But since it hasn't been revealed yet, nobody really knows anything at this point.
    That's just the thing...nobody knows. We don't even know if he came in a plastic bag; it's been rumored....but many people claim they've also owned the never-released Rocket-Firing Boba Fett mail-away exclusive too.

    Like the folks at That New Toy Smell even brought up....for all we know some guy could've been selling 'em out of the back of his trunk; no one honestly knows.

    Anything but the alternate universe crap!

    I hate that.

    My best guess is that he's one of the "chosen" warriors who took the He-Man mantle somewhere in the 500 years between King Grayskull and Prince Adam.

    I think there's even a possibility that his real name may be Dare. Then, he became Wun-Dar. He-Man was just an extra title. As in Dare=Wun-Dar, the He-Man.

    I really donīt care about Wun-dar backstory, I just bought a sub for the comodity.
    I think that was a good choice for the sub character, but at the same time and personally I donīt think no one would buy a sub just because thatīs the only way theyīre getting a Wun-dar.

    Awh, I love that crap! I was figuring he is a mad god He-Man who destroyed his universe, stole the powers of a cosmic enforcer and is Wun-Dar-ing the Multiverse to destroy every Castle Grayskull in creation. What?!?!?
    I think it sounds great. Stop judging me!

    That got a smile outta me, Lord Fallen Eldor.

    That was good stuff. The smilies worked well with that. All tongue in cheek.

    I'm just not that big a fan of alternate universe stories. I think that's just a little lazy. I mean, it works for Bizarro, but I don't want it in He-Man too much. I mean, they're already on a different planet, I don't need alternate planets of the same thing just backwards going on.

    sounds like the Jet Li Movie, The One....


    And regarding the original figure: I heard that he-man was originall made as a conan figure to pair with the release of the first Conan movie. When they saw how violent the movie was they pulled out, painted his hair yellow and changed the name. The cartoon was then commissioned to salvage the money that had been poured into the toys and gain publicity that way instead.
    Wun-Dar having darker skin and brown hair adds up. Maybe a couple of thousand were made before they pulled it and needed to get rid of them somehow.
    give it recoloured armour and weapon from one of the new figures and it can be sold as a new figure that couldn't be related to Conan

    What I don't understand is how people even have this figure. I don't believe Mattel don't know his origin. If it's tied to a property like conan they're unlikely to tell anyone for legal reasons.
    similarly, how does anyone even know he should come with the black zodac gear? that was included in the weapon pack. Is there any evidence wun-dar even came with those items? If no one knows how he came about, how does anyone know a single accessory he should come with?
    Fneh's MOTUC wishlist:
    Spikor, MYP Marzo, Snake Armour He-Man, Stinkor
    Fneh's MOTUC needed list:
    King Grayskull, Beastman, Stratos head

    I`m one of those people.

    I think he`s a guy coming from the same village as He-man (as seen in the first mini-comic), same tribe and maybe related to him, only with a very savage and bad temper.
    The cosmic enforcer`s armor and gun? He bare-handendly extracted them from a dragon`s belly.

    Having already established that "He-Man" is an role that's been passed down the generations, there's no reason to think the legacy of Grayskull is going to stop with Adam. What if Wun-Dar is a future He-Man? TG said that we'd learn about the 'future' in the line soon. We assumed that meant a New Adventures character was on the horizon, but what if he meant Wun-Dar?

    Maybe Wun-Dar is the new He-Man who takes over after Adam is transported to Primus? The New Adventures 'He-Man' doesn't have the original powersword with him after all. Maybe in the MOTUC continuity he leaves it behind, and hands it on to Wun-Dar.

    I get it! The Cosmic Enforcers are also a retirement community for previous He Man's deemed worthy.

    I know, I wasn't expecting the bio to give us an answer to the Wonder Bread mystery. Especially since even Mattel doesn't know.

    At least when the bio is revealed we'll finally know something about the character.

    I always hated that. The reward for saving the world with great risk to yourself is to end up in an overseas retirement home.
