    I already have a good idea in mind as to which weapon specializes each Horde Trooper:

    Spear - Security Guard
    Crossbow - Shocktrooper
    Baton - Labor overseer

Very strange oxymoronic behavior. So, are they supposed to be robots or humans in battle gear? Anyone know?
    For me they were always both, ie they started out as Hordak's "human" (or peopleesque) solidiers, as they took over villages/cities/planets more joined, but as Hordak needed thousands of followers, he used most of them to build his factories where he created robot versions.
    If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna' call? HE-MAN!!!!

    Robots all the way! I think for me their silver armor is like a "skin" that can be worn by others, which is why He-Man could disguise himself as a trooper.

    The Ones that will arrive to subscribers will be $50 Per Club Eternia Sub. (Since the Troopers are part of the subscription)

    The Ones that will be on sale on Matty (Day of Sale stock that you have to login to the site and order manually) will be at $54 Plus Shipping, handling and any other taxes.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    SDCC. No idea on next year's army builder, but the Robot Knights have been heavily hinted at.

    What is left other than the Robot Knights if they don't get rights to the movie troopers?
    WTB:
    Loose: Sorceress, Whiplash
    MOC w/ mailers: Whiplash

    Honestly the only thing left that I want is a great Entrapta!

    Several options, actually. 200x/MYP Skeleton Warriors, Skelecons, repainted Snake Men, repainted Horde Troopers(with new weapons. I'd totally go for the all black versions with the laser and missile launcher from the iPhone game), Rock Warriors(Stonedar/Rokkon repaints...there's tons of option. Just gotta be creative.

    Need to wait till the regular day of sale for any extras. They'll also be at the higher price point.

    With the removable head and armor, I think some of the Aquatroopers would be possible re-using the rest of the Tropper body.

    According to the DOS page, the Horde Troopers 2-pack is $50. Not sure if it's a typo error again...

    Anyone else believes, that Mattel can release a color variant of the Trooper as a chase figure? Maybe a black Trooper?

    Maybe post 2015, provided there are enough sub holders to continue the line with a more conceptual \ obscure character selection.

    This is more or less what TG said in interviews.

    I just saw that. I hope that ends up being the price on DOS, cause that would be a good thing for those who want extras.

    Even at $50, that's gonna be pricy for people planning on ordering multiple sets... I think I'll just get one extra in addition to my sub, as otherwise I have no idea where I'd put them.
