    Your right ... optikk is gone and Merman is still there for sale (for how much longer?).

    So do we have a confirmed date yet for SDCC figures like Orko & Adam? Is it going to 12 noon, 2 August as mentioned?

    so there's going to be an SDCC Orko and a Matty collector Orko? Will both be available on mattycollector.com?

    there was a ton of He-ro, so I suspect there will be plenty of Orko.

    Thanks heaps for that clarification Markatisu, its in my calender now.

    , I think that there will only be 1 Orko/Adam available on Mattycollector ... saying that, if they can't sell all of the SDCC Orko/Adam at the Con (which i highly doubt), they may sell the remainder on matty.

    Change color Orko only in the con and regular Orko only on Matty site.

    What!?!? Everyone, go buy Mer-Man! It's almost two days he's been on sale! Another day of lingering on the site and all future re-releases will be cancelled because we didn't support them!!!

    Run!! Quickly!!

    I'm not even sure if I want a color change Orko... oh who am I kidding? I must have two! Having said that, whatever ends up being available on Mattycollector.com is going to be frustrating to acquire. I'm interested in knowing if the regular Orkos will be in larger numbers than the pre-She-Ra releases.

    Yeah, but He-ro was on the cartoon show... never. And in the comics....once, kinda. And as a toy... never.

    Basically all of He-Ro's interest was tied up in longing for unproduced stuff and collection completion.

    I know there are Orko haters, but there are many of us out there that genuinely like Orko. Regardless of whether you like him or not he's important to the franchise and a huge fan favorite.

    Making him a bonus was an awful idea, not for Mattel, who will still make their money, but for the average fan who bought a subscription expecting characters who are in, say, 90% of the TV show episodes would be significant enough to include in the sub. I guess not. I doubt he lasts 10 minutes on Matty.

    Molar probably goes quickly too, but as it's the same as the Con probably not AS fast.

    The regular Orko is probably going to be very well produced. I think we'll all get a decent shot at him. Mattel is going to use Orko to hook in new collectors into the toy line so I think they'll make more of him than any other figure so far.

    Please please please tell me they are going to position Adam better in that box... We can't have him lying down. What about us collectors who keep their figs boxed?

    Has anyone opened a color change Orko yet?

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has gotten their hands on a color change Orko yet? How does the figure look in person, how well does the color change feature actually work?

    I understand why the Prince Adam figure has no back sheath

    I remember Pixel Dan complained about it.

    Well, first off, the original toy didn't either!

    But wait..there's more! the only time I can recall Prince Adam having a sheath in that design was in the Filmation series...which as far as we know is currently off-limits.

    If he had it in the comic, then fine..this was just a way to throw Prince Adam in as an accessory.

    Otherwise, they got as accurate as they could; and it works for me!

    1) Neither did Merman, Man-at-arms or any number of other characters with sheaths added...

    2) Yes, he did the same reach behind for the sword in the minicomics as he did in filmation... the same as Adora did...

    3) didn't 200x have the sheath? in both toy and cartoon? Adam is one of the only figures so far with ZERO 200x influence...

    I'm personally very curious why the horseman did it this way... Adam more than ANY other character (besides He-man himself) who NEEDED a sheath... I tore MANY purple vests trying to get him to store it back there...

    Regarding the filmation is off limits thing, something like a sheath is fair game, also as Mattel stated if they own the character (as they do with prince adam) they can pretty much do what they like with them, so the missing sheath has nothing to do with filmation, in fact in filmation you very rarely saw adam with a sheath. no clue why the horsemen didn't do it this time around possibly (this is the only reason I have) because Adam isn't a warrior YES he carries the sword but we only see it when he's going to transform, it never shows outside of that, yueah the same is true of adora but she is a fighter outside of being she-ra. it's the only reason I can think of even though there are holes in the theory.

    my guess is that they just wanted a direct update of the original toy...and since he's--in theory--the "accessory" this time, that probably had something to do with it too. Hell, for an accessory he even comes with an alternate head!

    Adora has a sheath for her sword and yet she still looks cartoon accurate.

    Like Val said on Roast Gooble Dinner, the Four Horsemen get it right 99.8% of the time, but this is one of the rare occasions when I think they made the wrong choice.

    Picture Request of SDCC Orko color feature

    OK Guys,

    I know some of you have been able to obtain SDCC Orko (ehm.......Darkspecter...).

    Now can someone post some pictures of him after being dunked in water? Does this feature really work? Does all his color disappear?

    Before/after shots?

    Just curious since I still do not own one (and I'm sure other people would like to see this feature as well).

    THX!
