    Cool, looks good. Don't understand the Imp as a Treasure chest though. What's that mean?

    Imp is a shape shifter, but since I'm not that into Filmation I don't recall an episode where he changed into a treasure chest.

    How about sending subscribers the extra treasure chest? You know the people actually keeping this line in business?

    Second time that I'm not interested in the SDCC exclusive. (Vykron was the first, but I ended up getting him eventually)
    MIGHT do that for hordikins, but they dropped quite a few balls with this one IMO.

    so even IMP doesn't interest me much.

    I can do without the chest version, but I'll take the rest! (They aren't spot on but I've been using Hurricane Hordak as my Fright Zone era Hordikins. .. And I loathe Hurricane Hordak, so this will be a step up for me. Something is weird about Imp though. ..?)

    Well, well... exactly as BCRDUKE predicted. I'm shocked, I say! Shocked!

    No interest; money goes to Hasbro this year.

    Well at least I'm not alone in that boat.
    I don't want to take anyone's joy away, but this variant isn't for me. And neither is Imp to be honest...

    I'm really disappointed that they didn't give him a Filmation head sculpt.

    Or, even some detailing on the face to try to replicate the dark lines in the cartoon? Just painting it all white is a bit...lazy?

    So disappointing.

    I'm no customiser at all but I reckon I could take my existing Hordak and make that.

    This is so lazy and cheap I can't believe it. They couldn't even do a new head? Really??!!

    The previous years SDCC reveals haven't always been great but they've at least had new sculpted parts or good accessories.

    I don't understand the point of doing Filmation Hordak when apart from being painted blue it has none of the things we'd want from that variant at all. Poor poor show.

    Total missed opportunity, and a bit of a snore for SDCC. He's not a bad figure, I guess, but he really needed a new head sculpt. This really does highlight why I have no interest in Filmation variants, especially if they are just repaints. I'll probably get this, but mostly just for Imp.

    I'd say this was one of their easier jobs considering Imp is the only new thing here I see (and robot arm). Straight up repaint!!! Hoping for another MOTUC reveal.

    This line has officially lost one of its supporters... Me. My most anticipated figure is a total travesty. No filmation head or even armor? This is the LAZIEST , CHEAPEST SDCC figure ever. Such a slap in the face than one of the most popular, requested figures gets such treatment - i cannot believe D list characters like Vykron or the Rock people got a box full of new parts and Filmation Hordak gets... A hand and a miniature imp. It's like Battleground Evil Lyn, only she was a regular figure and this is a con exclusive.it's really sad. And don't give me that crap about "oh but it's a variant costume for the same character". Cause NA Skeletpr gets a brand new head sculpt AND a fakor head. This makes me wanna cancel my whole trip to SDCC this year. And if that's what Mattel can muster despite the con figures having more allotted budget than regular figures, then I cannot imagine how lame the 2015 figures will be. In the light of Filmatio Hordak, I have already decided I would not sub for 2015. Nice one, Mattel.

    Is it just me...I feel like Imp's face is suffering from the Loo-Kee effect? They elongated his face too much. Should be a bit more flattened, so his eyes could be more centered on the front of his face. His eyes being so far apart and on the sides of his head are creeping me out.

    Wow...severely disappointed in this one.

    Much like I was with Snake Man-At-Arms.

    There was more to Filmation Hordak than a new paint job.

    Extremely missed opportunity IMO.

    So, let me get this straight. To date we've never had one of these "only at SDCC" bonus items that DCUC would occasionally have. But now they are doing it with this figure. As a completest with this line, I'm not thrilled.

    But further more, they actually spent tooling dollars to make this treasure chest version of Imp, but did NOT make a Filmation accurate head for Hordak?!
