cool figure, I want him really bad. I've always wanted a badass conan figure, and the mcfarlane ones are shatter-if-you-look-at-them, immovable lameness. This to me, IS a conan figure. Call him Vikor if you want but as the picture shows ... he IS conan. Frank Frazetta's interpretation of conan to be exact.
maybe I am just restating what everyone already knows, but it's not slight similarities we are talking about here.
I for one welcome he-man's originating character Conan to the line. I've loved his super violent, womanizing, magic-hating ways for a long time.
Now if we can only get Thundarr the Barbarian in there somehow ...

Religion = The Horde
Atheism = The Great Rebellion
And maybe there is a hybrid beast/man race of ram-head-like warriors (i.e. Prahvus' race) that partly or wholly make up these Fighting Foe Men, and maybe Vikor and his fellow Warriors of the North, are in a constant battle with these FFM and when they slay one of them, they chop off the tips of their horns to use as tokens and affix them to their helmets to intimidate the rest of them...
And maybe one of the FFM was in fact Demo-man, who was from another, yet closely related, hybrid race, that allied with Prahvus' and his warriors...
Or maybe he was from the same race as Prahvus, but has become even more savage and stopped shaving all of his hair off like the others, after he was captured by a group of rogue Northern Warriors and was tortured for some time to be made an example out of, having both of his horns completely removed, before he was eventually able to escape, which left him with a burning contempt for his own kind – and on his own side – for not coming to his rescue...
And eventually, Vikor, the most respected and civilized of the still savage, Northern Warriors, is the one who ultimately sacrifices his own life in order to kill the raving Demo-Man, whose now ever-tortured soul, then awaits caught between the dimensions of life and death, until the day, far in the future, when he is destined to be resurrected and merged with the fatally wounded Keldor... Enter in...Skeletor!

Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Great Black Wizard.
Most Wanted Filmation: Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder, Teela, He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak head.
No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!
A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!
Sucks that Bow won't be available until Feb... (AFTER V-Day!) oh poopie!
At least We're getting Conan... Bio's a bit lacking though...
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.
my guess is that Both Bow and Vikor samples came in, but they spotted an issue with Bow.The sample hasn't come in yet from the manufacturer, rest assured as soon as he arrives then photos will be put up online.
Keep watching the news section!
A quick call to Hong Kong and they catch the problem, but It means a delay in shipping final product, so they swap Bow and Vikor!
Lets face it, they dont need two 'Robotos' in the space of two months!
Just guessin but I think it fits!
maybe the Vendor packed the sample with the 'cartoon Head' on the body, instead of the Vintage head, If thats the issue then Im all for him being held up!
If they went against the established 'Vintage presentation in Bubble' system now, that would set a nasty contradiction to all the past TG statements! IMHO
(Ps. If i do decide to open Conan I shall also have him left handed, so the manacle and chain are visible!)

Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.
You can join the Illumina Facebook page here!
Grayskull needs its Cardboard Spacesuit MOTUCized
Voice your support in the Cardboard Spacesuit/Robot thread:
Wahoo!!! Vikor for January! Now that's starting off in the right foot.
Vikor rules as to me he represents a very respectful nod to the origins of He-Man namely Frazetta who then inspired Mark Taylor enough to make a toy that changed the world.
I would prefer this to be the bio rather than a story but I am just over the moon we have a Frazetta figure.
Yup, I think referring to him as a Frazetta figure is more fitting!

Just give him Grizzlor's axe and you have a perfect carbon copy of that picture. Lol.
For those who do not want Vikor in their MOTU, may I suggest you use him to make Randor's ancestor from that Filmation episode, not Time Corridor, the other Season two one.
Somebodies knows what I am talking about right?
I don't think he fits in MOTU, but I still think he's a really cool Conan figure. I think a number of us here like him just for that.
Heck, if anything, it's a good way to reach fans of Conan. Maybe increase the interest in MOTUC a bit more?
If the word hasn't been spread to the Conan fan forums, I hope someone will.
This bio is nice and simple, I like it... No confusing stuff
