    Eldor - Do You Want Two Different Cloaks?

    When the 4H get around to doing Eldor, I think one of his extra accessories should be a cloak in the reddish cardback colors, which makes him look like he's getting his evil on. (Yes, I know he's not supposed to be evil)

    Agree or disagree?

    I'm not sure they could make his clothing removable unless he comes apart similar to Kronis/Trap Jaw?

    I think I'd rather see him in his brown jacket with the book and maybe a stand for the book, then later a Battleground Eldor in the red with Filmation Light Hope or Filmation Spirit of Grayskull accessory

    I was thinking they could do the cloak in 3 separate removable pieces...

    ...but now that I'm thinking about it again, I suppose it does seem kind of pointless to toss in the parts for a red cloak and then not have the option for red undies and (presumably) boots.

    Part of the original thought behind this was to make as many folks happy as possible with regard to the colors used, seeing as how they're probably going to get one shot at Eldor.

    For years, the prototype was the only option, but then in recent years the cardback turned up, thanks to Jordan at Hollywood Heroes, and I'm wondering how the 4H will approach him now. It seems possible they would go with cardback colors or maybe use a color value somewhere in between the two. But then this might annoy some folks.

    Guess I'm just trying to get this sorted now.

    I know some folks will probably say "just paint it in the color(s) you want" if they go with a less desirable color, but imo it's not that easy - repainting doesn't work that great on parts with a larger surface area and especially on soft plastic where it's actually molded in a certain color. IMO, the paint never adheres as well as a factory paint job/job and it's more prone to cracking, chipping, etc.

    Eldor is one of my most wanted figures but I think I'd just like him in the brown Cloaks like on the prototype. And a stand for the book like Killian suggested is a great idea, he also needs some sort of staff, maybe just a plain wooden one with a carved head piece.

    No, I think the cloak should be brown. He-Ro doesn't have red hair, and it matches the cloak in the cardback art.

    I'd say: Eldor, Book of Living Spells, Book-Stand (great idea!), and a secret accessory: Gray, Ro's secret identity!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I fully agree. The BoLS is an absolute must-have and the book stand is indeed a great idea!

    Edit: oh yeah, forgot to answer the question. Brown cloak, no red one.

    I voted no, because the red cloak wouldn't match his brown shorts.

    Two heads: Hood up and hood down...
    Seriously am I the only one that sees an old man in a hoodie? He should use a loincloth similar to Preternia He-Man... The Brief style loincloth makes him look like he's wearing a hoodie while in his underwear...
    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.

    I don't think the difference in the images is intentional, I think the ink on the cardback just came out redder possibly because of age. I think both are meant to be reddish brown, which is what I'd be happy with. Making his cloak red like the reissue of Grayskull combined with that white beard would only add the Santa Claus vibe to yet another figure.

    I sure hope Eldor is not pitted against Illumina in the upcoming fan vote. He should already be on the short list of upcoming figures.

    This is not a barbie toy line. If they are going to make more accessories, make they weapons or artifacts.

    I voted no. I think it's just highlights/shading like how comics like to shade black and white with different shades of blue. In my opinion, I care more about getting the holograms with his book. I know we won't get them, which is sad, but how cool would holograms be?! I LOVED hologram stickers/cards when I was a kid.

    It would be neat if he came with another ancient artifact, too. Corrodite crystal? Shard of Darkness? Gorpo as an Orko repaint? One can dream.

    EDIT: Oh...put me down for a book stand as well. We have SO many books in MOTUC now, and no stands. That's what I would like.
