    Reccula is the phoenetic spelling for the Thai word for "spy"

    Recul in French means "retreat."

    I doubt either of these help at all.

    After all, my linguistic theory about "Ky'Rulla" (Icelandic Kyr=1000 and Rulla=turns) turned out to be neither Spinnerella nor Sy-Klone

    We need some news... we're getting bored LOL.

    There was actually a court case that decided that! lol. Gotta love the US justice system.

    Apparently there is an extra tax charged on dolls to the manufacturer.. and action figures were being taxed as dolls. Toy Biz (who made a ridiculous amount of action figures in the 90s) apparently challenged the classification in court. The court decided in favor of Toy Biz and hence action figures are not dolls.. it's law!

    Didn't Hasbro originally make the challenge on their G.I. Joe line in the 60s? I know there was a brouhaha around this that I've seen referenced a few times.

    Anyway, according to my daughter, who has read the book and has all the current dolls, there is no Kyle Reccula currently in the Monster High mythos.

    This could be a stretch, but VALLEY OF GNARL was recently filed.

    There's an Ocean of Gnarl on the Eternia map, so maybe they're related?

    Makes sense. I think there was a creature called the Gnarl too...

    I'd bet that the valley of gnarl is to preternia what the ocean of gnarl is to eternia.

    Sooooo it's probably part of a POG figure.

    Vikor's bio?

    The plains of perpetua on eternia are the mountains (or hills, I can't remember) of perpetua in Tytus's bio.

    Things change....

    Could be for King Hsss's bio too.

    Maybe The Faceless One's bio.

    Wasn't gnarl ("The Gnarl") the puppet from the Sectaurs' Hyve playset?

    Yeah... and things like that are cool.
    But to me, they would work a lot better if there was more than 500 years between King Grayskull and He-Man.

    Oceans form and mountains rise in 500 years?
    I guess there could be massive floods and volcanoes, but that is still quite a stretch.
    Or I suppose they can just say "it's magic, we don't have to explain it".

    Yeah, I guess it's easiest to go that route when half of Eternia's landscape changed with one little spell.

    Good point!

    I keep forgetting about the 500 year thing. Why did they bother putting that kind of finite timeline on things??

    The spell of separation may have had something to do with the abrupt geographical changes.

    Also thought about 500 years and the change of the landscape.

    Many thousands of years are more logic, even for Eternia

    Maybe I'm forgetting, but where is 500 years mentioned?

    Both King Grayskull bios don't mention time...neither does Eternia or He-Man's bio. The only bio that mentions a specific amount of time, from my memory is Wun-Dar who came 100 years before He-Man.

    So..where's 500 coming from?

    EDIT: Oh yes, Green Goddess. The five centuries line is dumb. That really limits the story, when it was written to include "the most action figures possible."

    Trademarks were recently filed on:

    SPECIAL FRIEND WHO HELPS SHE-RA (Bow) and
    LEADER IN THE GREAT REBELLION (She-Ra)

    Just to let you guys know, I'm probably not going to be around for some time after this post. My dad died earlier this week.

    Isnīt the leader Adora, who took over from Glimmer. I know itīs a fine line between Adora and She-Ra..... but it could be a hint for Glimmer if you ask me!

    I always thought Angella is the true leader of the Great Rebellon. The scene in the last part of the SOTS where she leads the rebellion into battle and demands the horde surrender bright moon to her pretty much confirmed it in my head anyway.

    I first thought of Glimmer when I saw the leader of the great rebellion tag. I'm sure it relates to adora or she-ra somehow, but I always see Glimmer as the leader who had leadership abruptly usurped by she-ra for no explained reason. lol.
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    Sorry about your dad, Tallstar.

    Toy Guru did say in a Q&A that Angella was the leader of the Great Rebellion in MOTUC continuity.
