    Horde Trooper Discussion

    I think a lot of people are hoping that the Horde Troopers are the next army builder 2 pack... and with the preview of the new eternian palace guards it makes me wonder what cool accessories and items will be included with the troopers? Any thoughts?
    Probably a sculpt of the vintage red staff?
    Regular and Battle damaged head/ armor? Maybe with wires hanging out?
    I remember seeing a horde trooper carrying a cool looking horde shield in the comic or on the tv show.
    An extra "bonus" He-man head like in Secret of the Sword?

    any other ideas on how mattel will top the palace guards with the amount of heads, features, and weapons with the horde troopers?

    I'd want to see swappable parts with damage as opposed to figures that you can actually knock apart in the action feature sense. Other than that, it's all good with me whatever they choose to do.

    I think if they gave swappable armor/ heads since they had different incarnations throughout she-ra alone would be cool.

    I still love the break-apart action feature so that would be pretty cool. Really, I love the Horde Troopers they way they always were so I don't want too much variation between the two packaged figures. I want them to look like a uniform army.

    Were Horde Troopers actual humans underneath?

    I would agree with you, but after the Palace Guards, I would feel cheated if they were not packed to the gills with accessories. Like Star Wars and their variation of troopers, I always wanted an elite Horde Trooper, maybe one with a cape or a different chest plate or something. Like this wonderfully drawn picture done by Emiliano back in 2004. Yeah I know, too much hyper detail, but a good variation from the Filmation and 200x versions to say it's an elite trooper.

    I don't mind one or two higher ranking Horde Troopers but please not on a 50/50 ratio with the regular Horde Troopers.

    I need lots of uniform Horde Troopers and only one or two at most variations.

    If the Horde Troopers are to be packed to the gills with something please let it be battle damaged parts.

    Is it possible they'd release the Horde Trooper as a single carded figure? Or have they said it would be an army-builder? I'm just curious if they've addressed that at all.

    I'd love to see them come with not only the red Horde bat scepter that the vintage figures came with, but I wonder if they could also come with the silver stun rods that the troopers had in the cartoon.

    I´m thinking of:

    2 vintage staffs
    2 red crossbows
    2 laser guns( maybe Webstor`s)
    interchangeable breast plates

    I´ve no clue, which different heads could be packed by. Maybe the head with the half-round eye-holes, which we saw in a flashback in "secret of the sword"

    The early Troopers as shown in flashbacks (SOTS maybe?) were creepy looking. Be cool if we couyld get those head. Speaking of which, I am FOR a He-Man head, throw in a Hordak head too! "YOU MAY HAVE DEFEATED US, BUT YOU'LL NEVER SEE THIS CHILD AGAIN!"

    If possible, this would make them a pretty perfect set to me. Great ideas, pal!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    horde trooper army builder pack would be neat --- i also don't mind the idea of a bonus he-man head since i'd only buy 1 but i can see the fault for multiple purchases.

    Horde Trooper variations

    On reflection I think the Palace Guard 2 pak was my fave of all the SDCC reveals.

    Toyguru recently told us there would be minor differences between 2 pak army builder figures so both figures would not be 100% the same.

    This sounded fantastic at the time and I do like the idea of the different colour/sculpted heads. That is awesome! The only thing I wish was different is the breastplates. I wish there were 2 of the undented breastplates with horizontal lines, so I can create an army of exact same armored Guards. I don't need so many Falcon breasted Guards.

    Even more than I want uniform Guards, I desperately want an army of identical soulless Horde Troopers. I don't want them to look different. Their monotonous uniformity is what makes these guys so appealling.

    So my petition/suggestion is that any future Horde Trooper 2 pak not feature variations between the two figures. Or if there is a variation, it can be swapped for a pack-in that is identical to the other Trooper.

    Yes, a battle damaged armor would be nice for a Horde Trooper but please for the love of the Goddess, pack in a replacable undamaged part!

    Does anyone agree that our armies of Horde Trooper robots should all look identical?

    I might be wrong, but I think Mattel will pack Horde Troopers with 2 different kinds of heads. The head with the usual, yellow V-haped eyes, and the head with the rounded M-shaped eyes. Personally, I only like the usual, vintage yellow V-haped eyes, and I don't care about the rounded M-shaped (or arcade) eyes. I hope Horde Troopers will have some sort of mecanism that will allow them to be displayed "damaged", but that their armor will actually be the same (and undamaged). Or, that there will be 2 different breastplates (undamaged and damaged) that will come for each of them.

    I was wondering if there would be a black and a white Trooper (the captain being black and the troopers being white)... Mattel could easily make a 3-pack of these.

    I just hope there are enough parts to make them look exactly the same in the standard look. Anything else would be bonus.

    Unfortunately there's not much variation to draw from for the Troopers without access to Filmation. They only appeared in a few minicomics ("Hordes of Hordak" being the on where they were featured) and mostly didn't even use the one weapon the vintage figure came packed with. I therefore think the Troopers are a prime subject for 4H invention and creativity!

    What I "expect" the pack to have at the very -least- are four breastplates (2 undamaged, 2 damaged), 2 staves modeled after the vintage weapon and... no idea about the rest. Maybe a pair of Horde-style crossbows? Blasters?

    How about you can pop the helmets off and hide the packed in Lookee inside.

    Additional weapon

    Maybe something like a bazooka type laser cannon would be a nice attachment. Just a thought!

    About the m-shaped eyes, are you referring to that episode where the Horde was invading Eternia (possibly SOTS?) I thought those troopers were creepy looking, and I want them to look like that!

    Surely with the no 200X heads ruling, that negates the possibility of a different head for the Horde Troopers?

    MOTUC Horde trooper: What could be possible?

    I´m asking myself, what possibilities the Horde Trooper 2 pack could have?

    The Eternian Guards have:

    4 Chestplates
    4 Heads
    2 Faceguards
    2 halbards
    1 mace
    1 axe
    2 shields
    4 leg armors
    4 arm armors
    2 torso amors


    I imagine the Horde Trooper could have:

    2 deatachable armors
    4 chestplates (the bat part)
    2 normal heads
    2 "Filmation flashback heads
    2 vintage staffs
    2 red crossbow

    PLUS: I think, it would be cool, if they have detachable forearms like Trap Jaw/Roboto and some attachments. Would fit to their robotic image. (see green area at pic).
