    Eldor Prototype Found. PROOF CARD

    Hi Folks,

    As some of you know I represent many former Mattel engineers and designers. We recently found this while cleaning out a storage room inside one of the client's homes.

    I wanted to share. Enjoy:





    Best to all,

    Whoa, that's so awesome! The cardback illustration even shows what Gray was supposed to look like!

    So, could this be a coincidence, concerning a certain SDCC Exclusive that's gonna be revealed next month according to Toyguru? Hm...

    Oh... my.... Goddess....


    That is fantastic piece!
    If at all there's a chance for better scan that could be used on Org's features, that'd be awesome.

    can someone write down for me the texts on the back of the card? About Eldor's profile and everything?

    That is SO awesome! Thanks for sharing. If you have any other MOTU/PoP/NA stuff...feel free to share that too.

    Welcome to the boards!

    For Jukka:

    PROFILE: Heroic Guardian of the Book of Living Spells - responsible for transforming Gray into He-Ro, the Most Powerful Wizard in the Universe!
    WEAPON: The knowledge of the Ancients
    ORIGIN: Unknown
    The Book of Living Spells: The Book of Living Spells contains the ultmate secrets of Preternia - the Secrets of Transformation. Thus, whenever Eldor opens it, he can uncover all the secrets of the past, present and future Eternia - AND CHANGE IT!

    For nothing on Preternia stays the same...as you will soon see!
    HOW TO ASSEMBLE

    1. Snap open book from either side as shown.

    2. Peel off adhesive back of He-Ro hologram & Eldor picture...and match them to corresponding engravings as shown.

    3. Peel off adhesive back of Tyrantisaurus Rex hologram & Bionatops picture...and match them to corresponding engravings as shown.

    4. Eldor has hands that pivot at the wrist for holding the secret Book of Living Spells!

    Here's what I can make out so far...

    Profile: Heroic Guardian of the Book of Living Spells... responsible for transforming Gray into He-Ro, the Most Powerful Wizard in the universe!
    Weapon: The Knowledge of the Ancients
    Origin: Unknown

    The Book Of Living Spells:

    The Book Of Living Spells contains the ultimate secrets of Preternia- the Secrets of Transformation. Thus whenever Eldor opens it, he can uncover all the secrets of past, present, and future Eternia- AND CHANGE IT! For nothing on Preternia stays the same... as you will soon see!


    And the accessory stuff:

    HOW TO ASSEMBLE:

    1.) Snap open book from either side as shown
    2.) Peel off adhesive back of He-Ro hologram & Eldor picture and match them to corresponding engravings as shown
    3.) Peel off adhesive back of Tyrantisaurus Rex hologram & Bionatops picture and match them to corresponding engravings as shown
    4.) Eldor has hands that (unreadable) at the wrist for holding the ancient Book of Living Spells!

    That's awesome. I'm seriously hoping we get an Eldor in MOTUC...maybe this will help inspire Mattel to make one. They can use the art for his bio pic!

    I wonder if Mattel will re-use Prince Adam to make Gray...as he has the same body (vest, belt, furries and all). That would be cool.

    Also, the Book of Living Spells bio is the SINGLE most important discovery in MOTU history! This would explain all the different MOTU canons because the book of living spells CHANGES history.

    It's too bad Mattel didn't know of this and went with the millions of He-Men idea.

    Great find! It's nice to see some legitimacy to He-Ro and Eldor being in the vintage line.

    Great! Thanks for sharing.




    @ HollywoodHeroes:

    Would you mind posting some closeup-photos of the 4 book action-feature illustrations, describing the assembly and how the holograms work?
    As well as the character, profile and origin text on the top of the cardback?


    Because unfortunately the small text is really hard / impossible to read on the screen.

    THANKS in advance!
    ..:: it rubs the lotion on its skin ::..

    Kaleb1974 (5x) ~ Peter (3x) ~ JOAH-MAN (1x) ~ TIRPITZ (8x) ~ rougewelder (1x) ~ Facelessone (12x) ~ King-ironic (1x) ~ boggs32 (2x) ~ onthoofder ~ ess7477 (1x) ~ Sl@yer (8x) ~ 2-packs (7x) ~ Arkangel (2x) ~ PIOSOL (3x) ~ pyrelus (1x) ~ Scare_Glower (1x) ~ mondo (1x) ... Thanks guys!!! :-)

    Check a couple of posts up... I think I managed to catch just about all the text on the back... with the exception of one word.

    incredible!!! There is so much to look at !!

    The book of spells contained holograms? He-ro's original art?? Has this last one ever appeared? Maybe in the dinosaurs?
