    This is just news. Not fantastic or bad, just news. She-ra fans will still get their guy and rabid fans will get theirs as well. One month is not that big a deal to me. Hopefully this means Bow will look awesome and have a perfect paint job.

    P.S. any news on whether or not he comes with a sword of He?

    Yeah, I like that!

    Bow looks great, but I like this barbaric, tough guy more...

    Remember the blue sword from the first weapons pack? He comes with a half of that.

    Awesome way to start 2011. I am way more interested in Vikor than any other of the 2010 SDCC reveals.

    I am still looking forward to Bow, I am looking forward to all the figures, but Vikor is that much cooler than all of them. Plus I am a sucker for new characters

    OH YOU HAVE GOT TO BE ****ING KIDDING ME!!! Yes, I have a sub, but come on, Bow is pretty bad ass and for once, I want him over Conan.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Im not a fan of the altered sheild spike, but I understand it.

    I do however feel that an 'Adult Collectable' shouldnt be an issue!

    I wish the bio would shed some more light on why Vikor has the chain on his wrist. It could be surmised that he was captured by the Fighting Foe Men but I doubt any other bio is going to complete Vikor's story

    Does this mean that Vikor's not getting a Toyfare ad? I kinda think it's poor form that Bow got an ad, yet he's not even on the MattyCollector website. That must confuse potential new customers.

    Looking at that shield, I'm pretty sure it's gonna hurt like **** if you stand on it. (I'm kinda scared to say that cos now Mattel may change it - hopefully it's too late)

    While his axe looks cool (and it does) it seems very 200X/realistic (ala-Marzo's face) when compared to He-Man's axe. Don't get me wrong, I am very pro-200X. It's just something I noticed.

    Regarding the bio, I am still not happy with the multiple He-Men angle. I like how they spelled out that he was a protector, but they don't need to call him a "He-Man". There's one He-Ro, one Grayskull, multiple protectors and one He-Man - that's how it should be noted.

    I am fine with news. I have a sub so I am getting all figures anyway. it really doesnt matter at this point if figures get shifted around.

    Does anyone know if Vikor is still packaged with his wide hilt sword that was seen at SDCC and in the artwork?

    Also, I remeber someone saying the helmet WOULD be removable. Any info?

    I think I remember hearing the opposite; that's it not.

    I like both Vikor and Bow, so this is good by me. Although shoot, I guess this means I won't be getting an extra Bow when I get the royal guards two pack in January. Whatever, so be it. I hope they aren't changing Bow (apart from new boots).

    This is cool to see so much enthusiasm for Vikor when his initial reveal was met with tremendous uproar.

    This is awesome news for me.

    I like both Vikor and Bow but I'm looking forward to Bow much more.

    My birthday is in February, so now I get to have Bow and multiple Shadow Beasts as a gift to myself!!

    ka
    While the packaging of the MOTUC figures have the Adult Collector label on them, there is no Age appropriate label on it. I wonder why Mattel didn't do this. There are toys out there like McFarlane that have the Age appropriate label and come with very sharp/pointy parts. It would definably be more fitting for a character like Vikor if the shield had a sharp spike instead of the blunt.

    "Vikor! What is best in life!?"

    "To crush the Foe men! To see them driven before you! To hear the lamentation of their Women!"

    Heh. Couldn't resist.But seriously, Is anyone else just going to call him Conan and be done with it?

    Actually I called Conan "Tytus" last time I was watching Conan the Destroyer.

    I am so looking foward to Vikor. I love the Conan movies

    Am comfortable with this change. However I do believe Matty owes us a Bow bio reveal in compensation.

    Since everything is getting pushed back lately, I hope King Hiss has been delayed to allow the 4H to fix his lame-o snake body.

    I think the bottom line is: it's better that the figures get pushed back, than to have them be rushed and risk getting sub-standard level of quality control because of it. I'm all for them making this decision; it was actually quite refreshing to hear!

    What Vikor now comes with a blunt?! And he's still only priced at $20?! Oh I'm definitely getting him now!

    J/k, I was already gonna get him, regardless.

    He looks nice. Actually got my "heart" set on Bow (pun intended) but Vikor is good too.

    Don't really matter since both are sub figs. Maybe they're changing Bow's boots!?
