    I would break my own rule of not buying non-original characters for Eldor because I like the idea of a powerful mage being part of Eternian history.

    However, the figure would need a lot of improvement from the 80's prototype. No cloak tucked into his underpants, for example. And that book would have to be shrunk down a bit.

    Wasn't there an Eldor-esque character featured (unnamed) in the MV Creations comics? I seem to remember a very, very long, plaited beard. That would make a good modern update for a MOTUC version of this character. I see no reason to slavishly follow the vintage prototype.

    Just lending my support to an Eldor figure. He would be awesome. I like the fact that his cloak is tucked into his tights. I like it because it's such a unique look - as opposed to the same long robe wearing wizard we've seen over and over again. If I wanted that, I could just hunt down Gandalf figures from Lord of the Rings.

    Eldor's muscular legs makes him decidedly MOTU. I hope they make them the pearlized gray looking color that the prototype seemed to have. After Eldor, we'd just need Tytus, Megator, and Sharella to have all the distinctly original Powers of Grayskull characters made(not counting Snakemen). Unless people also count He-Man in disguise.

    Just don't tuck his "hoodie" into his underwear!


    I would give him a full length cloak with hood, similar to Obi-Wan. Underneath that, I would use Prince Adam's vest and belt with a new buckle added to it (a buckle that looks like the Ramstone would be cool!)

    100% agree. I like the tucked in part. It's different. I also don't mind that the book is big. That book as some serious reading going on in it and deserves to stand out a bit.

    Sorry, I cannot scan a picture, but the source I'm referring to is MVCreations Masters of the Universe comic volume 3, # 5.

    The character whom I believe is a possible representation of Eldor is featured on

    Page 21: top frame head shot is best visual, but also in frames 2, 3 and 7. In frames 2 & 3 this wizard carries a spell book!

    Pages 6 & 7: seated at council meeting, with a possible He-Ro standing behind him.

    Hope that helps.

    That custom Eldor demonstrates well why his cloak should remained tucked in his belt. It makes for such a unique look and really sets him apart as something special.

    Eldor WILL be released in this line, as He-Ro was. Trust me on this one. You dont think it coincidence that this dealer in film memoribilia 'Hollywood Heroes' just mysteriously unearthed this Eldor prrof card out of the BLUE, did you? Seriously, its been floating around for some 25-odd years, seems like to me whats called "viral marketing" as of late. (Used to be called publicity, but..) Same situation as a celebrity that might be down on his/her luck and no longer getting offered fruitful roles, if said celeb appears doing something out of character, or say being drunk and obscene, that celeb is now in the limelight again. As they say, "ANY publicity is GOOD publicity."

    It's all part of the Mattel's "grand plan", trust me on this. They are 'gauging interest', stirring the pot as it were, and the bread crumb trail of 'clues' is as plain as day, much like the recent ToyFare magazine articles that I had mentioned in a previous post.

    I wont speculate much furthur, but as I have said, the next year~two years are going to be a VERY interesting rebirth for the MOTU brand, to say the very least.

    Looking forward to ALL of it, and I cant WAIT for our Castle Grayskull to appear soon!! (And it WILL, no worries...)

    Take care and be well!

    Anyway, if he is the SDCC, this is great, because it means I don't have to worry about not getting him. I never even heard of this guy until yesterday.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I'm hoping and it does have a high percentage of being done since so far, all the MOTUC SDCC exclusives are from the Preternian era!

    Great custom, and I cannot wait to see Eldor included in the line. His Bio has my apetite nice and whetted!!!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    That is a really awesome custom Eldor! I really hope he makes it as the SDCC exclusive this year. Would be a really nice complement to He-Ro from last year and the dramatic unveiling of Eldor's prototype proof card just a few weeks ago.

    Okay, the SDCC exclusive will be a two pack, and we just heard it's not Orko. That means we still have a very good chance it's Eldor... but with who??? I say Veena!!!

    PS. I love the custom!
    I love an all inclusive canon!
