I was just watching some POP episodes - and realised how much I'd warmed to the blue Filmation Hordak - design and character. I will always prefer the darker MOTU grey warlord/wizard angle - but the Filmation one has some cool elements to it.
I think I read in a mini comic once (can't remember the name) that Hordak once going into Eternia Tower gets some special powers to change his appearance or armor(?)
I think this would be a good way of upgrading Hordak's character - much like what NA would do for Skeletor. This could be Hordak's "next chapter" - he could become more machine-like.
I wonder what he'll be called? "Techno Hordak" anyone?
The Central Tower turned him into Buzzsaw Hordak, if I remember correctly.
Anyways, if they make the Filmation Hordak, my guess is like the drastic changes for Teela and Evil Lyn he will be Battleground Hordak.
He will be Half-Bro-Hordak - the half-brother of Hordak who had a Gar-Mother.
Half-Bro-Hordak could also be the half-bro of Half-Bro-Keldor.
This explains why there's a grey Hordak on Eternia & a blue Hordak on Etheria. Sort of.
Mattel is all about the dysfunctional families, you know. It's very dramatic.
Easy. Call him Etherian Hordak. His coloration is a reaction to the Etherian moons and environment.
"Yep! And now I'm gonna blast ya!"
- Orko to Skeletor in "Lessons"
The thing is - what IS Hordak's skin colour? - is it grey or blue - we don't know for certain - maybe he wears skin tight armor?
Seeing as the 200x Hordak had his body disintergrate when he was banished to Despondos, i figured that the Filmation Techno Hordak was a body built for Hordak's soul to inhabit.
JITSU!!!! Thank the Elder Gods!!!!

One thing is absolutely clear to me - a Filmation Hordak could not just be a simple re-paint. He would need a new head. I never liked the oversized vintage head.
Here comes Reboot!
I think it can be explained that Hordak and Modulok might have been experimenting with the ancient HORDE techno-virus that Horde Prime used to infect He-Ro and the Pre-Eternian Dinos. Maybe Hordak takes a dose of the new improved virus and turns blue with technological powers, but the effect is temporary. After a while, he reverts back to his old gray body.
Maybe Imp is also a product of this science too, since he's also blue and can turn into stuff.

I can see Buzz-saw Hordak in Filmation colors, but that's about it.
The truth was that Filmation designed Hordak like that because he was too dark for the cartoon. Black colors don't go too well in comparison with shadows back in the day.

They might well apply the "Buzzsaw Hordak" name to Filmation Hordak.
Masque. Remembering that - from what Busta & Emiliano have said - the cartoon models were developed first, I suspect it was Mattel wanting to make him look more different from Skeletor.
I say he gets infected with the techno-organic virus like the dinosaurs (Bionotops, anyone?). Makes sense from the bios perspective, anyway.

I know it's unlikely, but I hope they incorporate Noah, the wizard of Woeful Mountain teaching Hordak his magic on Etheria. I know that conflicts with his 200x bio, but I figured he could have lost his magic when banished to Despondos and had to re-learn it in order to find a way back to Eternia.

I think that Filmation Hordak, or as I like to refer to him Battleground Hordak, should be like Emiliano's Vision (Version B) combined with Buzz-Saw Hordak. Before Hurricane Hordak came out I thought that they should have combined HH with BSH, but since we already have HH I think this new combo would do nicely. Especially because it could tie in to Hordak's transformation into more machine than man and can get two variants in one figure....

Filmation Hordak is so iconic, surely we will get him. I hope anyway.
