    Best. Post. Ever.

    I'm totally fine with this change. The sooner I can get my hands on VIkor the better. By Crom, January is going to be even better now!

    Post of the thread.

    Possibly post of the month.

    +1 Internet, good sir.

    (The figure looks decent and the bio is okay. Not overplaying how awesome Vikor is makes him cooler imo)

    I see that they have a Conan homage here with the Stygi-- er, Snake Men.

    This bio raises even more questions.

    So who exactly would the Fighting Foe Men be in MOTUC? Why would they want the Valley of Gnarl? The bio also makes it a point to mention that his career was pretty short (So he was killed...but by whom?), but he had great accomplishments (like what?).

    I know! I've been thinking about his bio a lot myself. Isn't the Valley of Gnarl the one with all the overgrown thorns and vines? Or is that something else?

    I'm very satisfied with Vikor replacing Bow for Jan. Bow being a Feb. (valentines) figure works nice.
    The bio for Vikor is cool. I can imagine Vikor fighting numerous epic battles agents the Snake Men & other forces of evil. But who are the Fighting Foe Men?

    It sucks that the hack writer gets to read all the early MOTU stuff while we get zilch.

    Yeah, that kind of shocked me too.

    I. Love. This.

    To me, so far, as someone who has always loved the idea of generational He-Men, this is the best one so far, other than Adam. Definitely looking forward to Oo-Larr, He-Ro, Son of He-Man, He-Ra, and He-Lok (I know, just wishful thinking on He-Ro II and He-Lok).

    Wasn't the bio supposed to explain the chains on his wrists?

    Sucks for PoP fans, but at least it's only a one month delay.
    Honestly... it's my #1 complaint about the whole 'destined heir' concept. Adam is the ONLY one who can actually USE the power sword... it takes away a LOT of story potential...

    Any way.. he looks cool, but I probably won't get him. He means nothing to me. As such, I'm GLAD for the switch... because Jan 15th I'll probably still be paying off Christmas

    No problem with the switcheroo here. Doesn't affect me any.

    I'm not too thrilled for Vikor, but he looks awesome and the bio is nowhere near as bad as I thought it would be. I like how it plays down the multiple He-Man thing, making the non-real He-Man guys less important.

    Funny thing about these figures donning the PoG sticker too. I really love that sticker yet I really don't care for many of those characters. They just don't mean much to me at all and I even hate a few of them.

    I really like the nod to the fighting foe men. I wonder if they'll elaborate on them down the line. It would be cool if it was led by demo-man.

    I like both figures, so I don't mind so much who comes first.
    But is this rescheduling becoming a trend now?
    Seems like everything lately has been rescheduled...
