    Interesting. So each bearer of the Sword of He is given a Trollan guide. Which means we will start to see more guides (The one who acted as a guide for He-Ro, for sure). Sounds like a good way to get use out of the tooling for Orko.

    So because of Eternia's side effects Orko is basically a clown? Not sure if I am loving that, sure he had problems in the cartoon but he could still do some damage when he didn't bumble it up

    This new spin is kinda cool. Orko always struck me as a guide, even if he didn't know it. And I could see their meeting having been some predestined occurrence.

    And am I reading this right that there are other swords of He out there on these other planets?
    I love an all inclusive canon!

    I like the bio and the sword of he is alright but im still sticking with the 200X power sword being King Greyskulls power.

    All sounds awesome to me! Can't wait to see other guides for the likes of He-Ro, Wun-Dar, etc
    Hope we get a nice lil' five-pack of Trollan guides or something along the lines of that. How cool would that be?
    I'm now very much curious how they will treat Kowl and Loo-Kee in MOTUC now... seems like they're giving a lot of characters that I never really cared for cool little tweaks to make 'em interesting

    I do love the bio! It gives Orko a purpose and place instead of just being a lame magician. I appreciate that. I am ****** beyond belief about Adam being packed in like that. I want to display him MOC next to Adora. I'm also a little sad that it's a bigger card. Now my Zoloworld case won't fit it and be exposed to the elements. :-(

    Overall though, it's a great figure.

    The card is larger then the standard, only for the gimmick of Adam as accessoires?
    Ok.

    I'm liking Orko's bio. It is unfortunate the way Adam is posed in the package. Won't keep me from trying to buy one, though.

    I read a fan fic once, where Orko was explaining to Dree-Elle how it feels to be on eternia and why his magic doesn't work right. it was a great explanation the way I see it is that Orko can still do damage but it takes a great deal of will and concentration for him on Eternia. Magic came so naturally to him on Trolla that he never needed to concentrate so he doesn't really know how to focus right to get the effect. that's my take at least haha.

    It's good...but I still like Orko's Filmation origin. He accidentally travelled to Eternia, came across and saved Prince Adam, and the Royal family welcomed him into their home and hearts.

    I'm a bit disappointed that there is not also a bio for Prince Adam (unless they're waiting to reveal that around SDCC).

    Orko's bio sounds good though -- seems to fit the character pretty well.

    So in addition to The Goddess, Wun-Dar should have a trollan right (is the Horde Empire around at that time)? That would be cool to see

    They could re-use this sculpt quite a bit then

    Great to finally see Orko's bio!

    Could someone give me a refresher on the names of all the 5 dimensions? I know they were all listed before in a prior Q & A, but I can't remember all of them now.

    I like Orko's Bio. So he's sorta like "Giles" to Adam's "Buffy"? So the Oracle must have been King Grayskull's "watcher"?

    So this is why the Trollans can't fight evil directly...at least on Eternia. I wonder if the Oracle ever found a way around this problem?

    Yeah, preferable for me too. Pretty much the same thing in 2002.
    I mean this bio is fine for what it is, but I'm not into it b/c I really dislike the "Trollans" having so much to do with the story, including making and assigning the Power Sword.

    "entertaining tricks, which he uses to entertain"
    lol, the Matty editors doing a stellar job there again.

    Good. I was hoping Patrick would be around to add the bio to his thread! I've got the front page!

    So...who knows Orko's secret? I'll bet the Sorceress knows...perhaps Zodak.
    Man-At-Arms can't know if he's screaming at Orko all the time.
