    • Gotta agree about the mystery, guys.

    Although I love sourcebook and bios books like the MOTU Encyclopedia, DC Secret Files, Who's Who, Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe and others, I think some creations are purposefully let mysterious and it works.

    I was a big fan of Castle Grayskull being built by unknown hands, rather than Tytus building Castle Grayskull 500 years ago. Now, Grayskull seems less mysterious as it's only Grayskull's palace that the Orb is held in, not the trap filled foreboding fortress that housed the Power of the universe somewhere past all of those dangers.

    • My favorite mini-comic era was the Alcala and Texiera books. I like the more Thundarr the Barbarian-esque times.

    • YAAAA!!!! A Blonde Bikini Teela reference from Eamon!

    Great episode as always! I can't listen to Eamon without cracking up :-)

    On the Palace Guards: Lt. Spector refers to the guard who's face was modelled after Scott Neitlich. Spector originally was the name of the character Scott submittet to the "Design a character" contest back in the 80s. So the mention of Lt. Spector is just an addional nod to Scott for everything he's done for the line.
    Cheers,

    I liked the MYP origin of King Grayskull, that he always had the power, but didn't realize it til he really needed to save Eternia. He discovers it out of noble reasons.

    How do you tie this to the Sword of He? Well it's still a special sword because it can absorb and hold the essence of warriors. All the He-Men before Adam passed down their own heroic essence, skills, and knowledge into that sword. Adam as He-Man slowly uncovers them all one by one, such as the different armors.

    How do you tie this into the mysterious and powerful Castle Grayskull? It's still a powerful fortress that can harness and hold everything in that orb, which includes the powers of other He-Men.

    I think you are getting slightly confused with the power because you are mixing continuities. In MotUC there is no Brother of Zodak that gets eaten by King Hiss. In MotUC there is no word that the Elders turned into an orb, only that they didn't keep their physical form. In MotUC there is no Power within King Grayskull, he only adds a "security device" (his essence) to the sword.

    In MotUC "by the book" it is quite clear, I think...

    Zeehlar IS in MOTUC. He just isn't mentioned in Zodak's bio. Toyguru mentioned this in one of the RGD threads awhile ago.

    Anyway, yeah, you're right. Sometimes we jump ahead and make assumptions on a few topics even though that info hasn't been clearly spelled out in MOTUC.

    I agree, what you said about the Army Builder stuff.

    If they would make a head set, with new Guards heads, there could always be a motivation to buy the Guards again and again...

    Yeah they could keep rereleasing the guards with different heads and armor or just different heads every time.

    Battle Pigion was spotted today in Southampton. Even I, the ferociously egotistical Eamon was humbled when my eyes caught this truly stoic being.

    I mean, just look at him........

    It's like he's not even doing anything and it's riviting!!

    awesome podcast as ever guys! ...

    not really digging the roboto criticisms ... mine is perfect, and the best motuc figure so far - in my opinion, at least ... i guess i don't really get hung up on the intricate and finer details of the figures, i collect this line for enjoyment and nostalgia ... but i have to say on a side note, nate - i respect your customising knowledge! very informative ... there are some awesome custom works out there ...

    You got very lucky, my friend! If you had one of the Roboto's a lot of other folks have, I think you would feel different.

    Emiliano hooked us up with a cool feature, that's for sure!

    That Buzz-Off pronunciation, particularly Eamon's, was hilarious. And I don't, if ever, laugh at this podcast. Not saying I'm not amused sometimes, but don't laugh. But Eamon's pronunciation made me crack.

    Yes, you know I love nothing more than to visualize Eamon with his red hair, whispering that "Bzzzzz . . BZZZZZZZZZZ. . Bzzzz" in my ear so sweetly, to think about Dan wrestling around me in his tighties (I'll pretend I know nothing of real wrestling and mma as he does his thing), and of course, you, with your eloquent speaking voice . . . mmmm I can't wait until the next Gobble Dinner (pun intended). You three men complete me!
