    "Fighting Foe Men" was the original (one of a few) working title for the motu toy line.

    Vikor = He-Man
    Demo-Man = Skeletor

    And Beast Man was a monkey-bear with red fur.

    would like an answer to who the Fighting Foe Men are. Are they barbarians, humanoids, shadow/demon creatures or what?

    I think ToyGuru will answer this with "Keep reading the bios!"

    Oh great, now we have Foe-men in MOTU. Ever since I started putting together my own MOTUverse, I've been calling Mer-Man's race the Foemor. Now everyone will think I got the name from this bio!

    They are a splinter group from an ancient Eternian battle force called the Fighting Fee Men. The Fee Men were defeated in a great battle and their kind spread across Eternia. They resurfaced many years later as the Fighting Fie Men. Once again, they lost a great battle and were broken up yet again. The Fighting Foe Men are the last remnants of the original force banded together for one last ditch effort for glory.

    Love it.

    Does that mean we get to look forward to the Fighting Fu Men at some point?

    Love the fact that they had multiple names sitting around... and decided 'HE-MAN' was the best of the bunch

    Wonder if the Fighting Foe Men are a bunch of rabid Alcala creatures like the guys from The Obelisk mini-comic, maybe ruled over by the Red Beast.

    It would be nice if the FFM are manipulated by the "Unnamed One" just as the Snake Men were.

    i think it's rad that they took the original name for motu and wove it into vikor's background who was the original concept for he-man.

    I'd love figures based on those monsters. I'm not sure who I'll have Vikor fight when I get him. Hopefully Hasbro will have released their Frost Giant by that time.

    Potential Fighting Foe Men candidates:

    - Fuerza-T characters

    - Obelisk & Alcala warriors


    - Ninjor? (well he had to be plucked out of time and space from somewhere. Why not the wilds of Preternia?)

    - Demos and Terella, the evil warlords from Masks of Power toon

    - Red Beast concept character

    well, for instance, most of the concept characters and unproduced prototypes, like those seen on the tomart article.

    That is an easy one. The FIghting Foe Men are compiled of Zulu, Jasmine, Greywolf with his wolf turned siblings Sasha and Meisha, along with some other campanions as they battle the hordes of Wrath-Amon and his evil snake men. Wait...
    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.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

    what is increasingly strange to me is how convinved that the fighting foe men served demo man against vykron. that ffm name being a descriptor of the guys in the development era. and demo and yk being development era.

    so the are going with demo man against vykron.

    here is to getting sky high.

    It's weird when I first heard of the FFM ( before the figures) I thought of a bunch of pirate/barbarians/ all following Demo-man against Vikor.....then we get the figures and we get a bunch of pilots who can be turned to Hoard bad guys??? Where does Hoard come in to it???

    Not that I don't like the pilots, I think they look great, but to me they are neutral / heroic warriors who live in He-mans time,
    The Hoard symbols make no sense to me,.....
    Now bring on a big bearded battle ram driver, with that 'red missile' symbol on his chest
