Since a lot of fans have been stuck on the whole "cloned sword" thing, let me just throw something out.
1: Cloning was established as a magic on Eternia wayyyyy back in the early mini comics.
2: Who in the world said that cloning the sword was easy and that anyone could do it? Maybe it is a very difficult spell that can only be performed once - for such is the strange workings of Magic!
Or maybe it is really easy and even Clawful can do it. You'll just need to keep reading huh?
Which brings up the other point. Totally aware that fans who follow the bios are a bit confused right now. Totally the point. The bios were written out all at once about the time Stratos came out and we knew the line was going beyond 6 figures. We strategically and purposely spread info out bio at a time to keep the fun up. Fans should have a good idea of the "full" picture somewhere around mid 2012 if things continue along the master plan. So if you are feeling like you don't have the full picture, just hang on. A lot more info is still coming. And once you re-read older bios in the context of the full story, a lot will make more sense. Dissecting the bios one at a time was never intended. They should always be viewed within the context of all available bios and then re-viewed as new info comes out each month!
And hey, one last note. Regarding the debate over whether Vikor should be "concept art He-Man" vs new character "Vikor", as explained in the interview over on Fwoosh.net, we very purposely decided to go with making concept art characters their own characters in MOTUC and not just a "McQuarrie Skywalker" thing. (which honestly felt very lazy)
From a business POV this was done to make these characters more marketable down the road. Who knows what the future holds for the brand, but if were to ever explore other form factors or scales like Minis. 3 3/4" or Retro Figures or anything else we wanted to have the largest number of marketable characters at out disposal for future lines. This is why Wun-Dar, Vikor, Oolar, Demo Man etc.... are characters and not just bootlegs or concept art. And from a purely fun POV, as said above, just calling them "concept art" He-Man seemed like the lazy man's answer. Of course die hard fans know these are based on concept art. That is self evident. Giving them unique bios and names makes it more fun, and in the end, fun always trumps anything else, these are toys after all.
Anyway, two cents from Toy Land. Enjoy the show.
