    "Yes, the idea is there was always someone guarding the sword of He. But that warrior wasn't always known. In some generations the guardian warrior kept to him or herself.

    But this is how the "legend of the He-Man" spread around Eternia until Adam used the Power of Grayskull to transform into the one true He-Man."


    So there are more "She-Ra's" then, must be.

    I wonder if "Gorpo" is available (dark purple Trollan with stars) and "whose Trollan" would he be? Vikor's? Oo-Larr's? Wun-Dar's?

    Was this asked before and I missed it or should I change my question to this in the WTFWTK thread?

    Orko's. Not only is he a glorified court jester & secret agent, he's also got the finest corral of Trollan ladies this side of the Dark Hemisphere.

    Not necessarily. That might be a title unique to Adora and the Sword of Protection.

    Regardless, I would like to see a female guardian of the power sword sometime.

    Strobo

    UGH!

    Toyguru just replied to my Strobo availability question: "Use the search feature, this question has been answered numerous times."

    Where? Can someone show me? I can't find it.

    I hope it's Catra, that's the female we need most in my opinion. If only because we have "plenty" of heroic females already, and we have skeletor's vilian woman, we need Horde vilian woman, plus she-ra's nemisis via the toyline. It'd be like releasing He-Man and not having a skeletor to go with it until some years later.

    Of course I want the Sorceress, but I NEED Catra.


    OH, and by the by I very much want a Songster. I want as many varied origin figures as possible to make this the definative and all inclusive line. That plus I think Songster would be great as a Classicized figure.

    Oh, that and I think it'd be great to have a Bard for this fantasy group of heroes.

    TEAM SONGSTER!

    I'm glad they fessed up and admitted that the 5000 years was changed recently instead of being a mistake.

    I can't remember right now, did they ever use Gorpo anywhere in-canon? I've been using Gorpo as Orko's father's name for so long I had almost forgotten he doesn't really appear anywhere as far as I know.

    If they do use him for MOTUC I think he'd be most fitting as Vikor's Trollan guide.

    Not necessarily. That might be a title unique to Adora and the Sword of Protection.
    Clearly the female protector of the Sword of He would be known as He-Woman.

    Totally agreed.
    Fair and sincere answers are what fans like most.
    It's just easier to feel sense of camaraderie with the company when we're treated like adults
    Of course it would be just as awesome to hear that they listened to fans' demand on this topic...

    I like the 'Battle Stands' but I personally would love a more generic 'Clear' stand similar to the DCU stands to also be available.

    Anyone else find the She-Ra techno-sword answer kinda funny?
    That exact explanation could be used to justify why the 200x Skeleswords SHOULD be made in Classics.

    Ehh, yeah I agree it's good to get honest answers.
    But I still literally face-palmed when I read that answer.

    Makes me wonder how much other stuff that's "All totally mapped out from the beginning" is subject to change on a whim.

    Well... basically everything!
    The only rules they have is what they decide are rules. But it isn't like if the break these rules they actually go against law!
    So, they can change whatever they want.
    And I'm totally fine with that, as long as it for the better (like this) and they are honest with fans about it.

    Thankfully the 500 years bit didn't make it to retail. It's not 100% official until it hits retail...LOL

    I know, that's my point.

    I wouldn't be able to take much issue with anything if they said it was a work in progress, and everything is subject to change.

    But when you're taking the previous so high and mighty stance of dismissing any criticism by saying "You guys just don't like new stuff, but in time you'll accept it" and then you make such an obvious gaffe, it doesn't give me much confidence that the final, grand narrative is going to be anywhere close to how cool we're being told it's all going to be.

    5,000 years is a PIDDLING amount of time for the Fortress of Mystery & Power that contains the greatest secrets & sits at the centre of the Universe!

    The best way to fix these bios would be to delete them & then apologise.

    Dammit! With that kind of logic The Techno Sword of protection will get shot down too! Just wait until the Techno Swrod is produced to call them out on that... Then they cannot avoid the whole Skeleswords debacle...
    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.

    LOL! I know I tried searching their forums too and couldn't find it either! But I do know that he is currently off-limits because he comes from the Golden Books (I think) which Mattel doesn't have the rights to.

    The good news is that Sorceress, Marlena or POP charatcer, whomever is coming in April is surely (hopefully) going to make almost everyone happy.

    To the person that asked about 200X variants, can't you buy them from eBay. I really don't want a Trap n Smash Orko in MOTUC - I don't see the point.

    The BEST part of the whole Q&A was the use of the term "guardian warrior". Now, if only we could replace the term He-Men with that in every instance.

    TG Just answered a question of mine over at Matty-

    Howdy, I was wondering if you would ever consider a Fully Glow in the dark 'King Grayskull'? with GITD weapons etc?

    I fully understand that the 'Spirit of Graysull' can never be re-issued or mass produced, as that would lesson the 'Uniqueness' of the two in existence, but I for one think an a-list variant 'Ghost Of Grayskull' would be a fantastic item!

    Cheers Ka

    and merry Christmas!
    Always a possibility and one we haver talked about if we wanted to refresh Grayskull down the road. We just did a King Grayskull so if we did this it might not be for awhile.TG
    I recently received my Glow in the Dark 'Uncle Deadly' from Palisades Superb Muppets line, and instead of being cast in GITD Plastic, he is painted with GITD paint and its amazing, thats what I would really hope TG and co might consider if they did make a 'Ghost of Grayskull'.

    It shows all the deatil and has a fantastic texture.
