    I actually kind of really want a Gorpo.. I think that would be a pretty decent sub sign up bonus for 2011 (I still can't shake the horrible feeling that it's Marlena though)

    Well making Gorpo would definitely get some more use out of the Orko mold. I would love to have him.

    Agreed, Gorpo would make nice choices for a sub incentive, and they would definitely be getting some
    good use of the Orko mold.

    That drawn of Gorko is an early stage of Orko? Where it come from?

    I prefer consider Gorpo as the ancestor of Orko with the design of Oracle from the 200X series.

    Trollan 3 pack

    They could make a gorpo, orko & oracle army builder 3 pack.

    The orko could be the translucent version.

    Was that his name? Gorpo? I didn't remember hearing his name said, and I've read speculation before that the character was Orko from the future.

    Gorpo was the original name of Orko. They changed it so they could put the "O" on his outfit and flip the animation and it wouldn't show. If they kept the Gorpo name the "G" would appear backwards.

    Anyway, I would like a Gorpo.

    I'd love Gorpo. I'd also love it if his bio revealed he was kickin' it with Wun-Dar back in the day.

    Army builder pack In this case orko, gorpo and oracle
    would just simply be a 3-pack.

    I'd like The Oracle as well, especially because I firmly believe he and Orko are the same person...

    Orko is the key to the cyclical nature of the Powers of Grayskull I suppose.

    In the MVC comic, Orko and He-Man (or Adam, can't remember) go through all these difficult tasks to reach the Oracle's lair, so that Orko can perhaps find out whatever happened to his wand... once there, they find what is basically a post-it message from the Oracle, and a magic hologram of the Oracle... and Orko's wand...

    That lead me to believe that Orko (as the Oracle) had left the wand in one place in his lair, knowing that his younger self would be looking for it in the future...

    ANYWAY, I want all the Trollans we can get!

    If Mattel were to ever consider doing a He-Man.org exclusive, Gorpo would be a great choice. Since no one else posted a Photoshop rendering yet I figured I'd take a stab at it.

    Edit: I've made some changes. I appreciate the input.

    That's pretty cute.

    EDIT: White eyes might be better (like the "Ask Gorpo" image), because there's a LOT of yellow going on there.

    I answered that in post #8. He's the original Orko. Filmation changed him at the last moment to Orko.

    I actually think he looks better in purple.

    That's okay. I went and did some research and found out another tid-bit about Gorpo! He appeared in the first MOTU UK Annual!

    Info from Spacedust:

    The toy-line had been running already for several years, but (as mentioned above) it wasn't until the Filmation cartoon series came along in 1983 that the producers wanted a character to use as comic relief, and thus Orko the floating court jester was created.

    Originally, the character was to have been called 'Gorpo' (as found in the first UK annual), but the character was renamed Orko, allowing for the symmetrical 'O' logo on his chest which could be used on flipped animation cells (often used to cut animation costs) without appearing back-to-front.
    Picture of the cover and summary of the Annual:

    I appreciate the compliments and the constructive criticism. Corrections have been made to the eyes.

    I'd love a Gorpo toy! I think he would be a great He-Man.Org exclusive.
    If they wanted to add him to the MOTUC mythology perhaps he could be an ally of He-Ro?
    I don't know if I like the idea that he is the Oracle, that role should belong to a future Orko who became stuck on ancient Eternia IMO.

    Great Job. I'd color the staff something other then gold to differentiate it from orko's. Perhaps silver or white? Also I think he should have a G on his chest. Perhaps you could use the same G on Tytus's chest?

    Ask Gorpo was an old feature on He-Man.org. That is the source of the image.

    'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" (Matthew 22:36-40).

    A silver wand would be PERFECT! The Chase Orko from 200X had a silver wand, so it would be like a little "wink" to him.

    I think I like him better without a letter on his stomach. Not many Trollans don a letter...except for the ones that are symmetrical. Other than Montork, that is...unless it's under his beard.

    If they DID give him a "G" your idea is, again, perfect.

    EDIT: FAKER II, he looks MUCH better with the white eyes! It helps make him his own person and the yellow isn't overwhelming.

    My God, I hope they make Gorpo!

    Using the Tytus "G" was a great idea. I thought about turning the existing "O" into a "G" but I decided that would be too obvious and expected. But I did think the plain cloak looks too dull. Going with the idea that Gorpo could be from the time of Grayskull, having the Tytus "G" works great.

    I'm lucky enough to have saved all the Gorpo progression images.

    I have to say...I'm totally sold on the "G." Looking at the other images, he looked a bit plain without it.

    He looks SPECTACULAR!

    In the "Ask Gorpo" section of the .org, it says Gorpo is Orko's brother (made up, but since he originally WAS Orko, works):

    Hi!
    I'm Gorpo the Pretty Good (you may know my brother, Orko the Great, who is busy saving Eternia single-handedly and with absolutely no help whatsoever from anyone at all from Skeletor). Anyway, I've been, uh, asked to do this as a part of my community service after the Big Chicken Incident (don't ask, really). So ask about life, love, poultry, whatever.
    Orko and Gorpo could have been fleeing Trolla (for some reason) and Orko ends up in Eternia's present, but Gorpo (more inexperienced in magic) ends up in Eternia's past. That would be cool.

    BTW, FAKER II, you should make an Uncle Montork mock-up!
