    MOTUC Bow Packaged images and Bio

    Matty just posted these on Facebook.





    Bow's Bio
    Bow, Special Friend Who Help's She-Ra
    Real Name: Kyle Reccula

    After wandering though Despondos for several centuries and unable to return to Eternia. Hordak, and his ageless army eventually claimed Etheria as a new throne world.
    Deposing the local monarchs and ruling the people through fear. A nobleman in Queen Angela's court, Kyle was one of many brave warriors who took up the arms against the Horde invaders and joined the Great Rebellion. Nicknamed "Bow" due to his natural ability as an archer, each of his arrows possesses different powers and he has a magical heart that beats frantically when She-Ra is in danger.
    Bow, is secretly in love with Princess Adora, unaware that she and She-Ra are one in the same!

    Fantastic! he looks amazing by far one of the best figures so far and I love the bio. Also good to see that Glimmer was not mentioned in his bio I was convinced she would be.

    I can't get over the "special friend" part. It's like he's She-Ra's gay husband.

    Yeah, uhm not thrilled with the name "Kyle."

    The rest of the bio is awesome though. It gives us a little more knowledge about Hordak's time in Despondos. I guess Etheria IS in Despondos, and hopefully we will know why when we get the Etheria map.

    I find it disrespectful, though, that his heart symbol is NOT displayed in the armor in package.

    I mean, what's with the double standard there??

    The figure does look really awesome. Quite glad to see this!!

    I was a big fan of Bow's when he was revealed at SDCC and I'm even more impressed with him now that his bio and packaging have come along. I can't wait to get him.

    Aw and I was hoping to hear your thoughts on this.
    Can we hope for a good rant on the next Roast Gooble Dinner?

    Do not really like the Bio, no mention of Kowl and he was in love with She-Ra not Adora (I understand that Seahawk is not allowed but Bow loving Adora just does not feel right).

    Still an awesome figure though

    Awesome! The non-moustache head looks WAY better! If I have any extra bodies, I'll have to use the moustache head for something funny. I just need a top hat and a monicle!

    Anyway, the bio stays true to the old She-Ra toys, right? I don't see any problems with it. I kinda like the heart thing; I know it deals with his love for Adora, but it's kinda neat that he's got this connection to be around when there's danger. However...since She-Ra is sorta near invincible...wonder what good he'll do when he comes running?

    Bow: "She-Ra, I'm here! My awesome heart armor told me you were in----oh."

    She-Ra: "Oh, hey Bow! Yeah...uh...well, as you can see, the bad guys are all tied up and hanging from a tree here. I sorta just lifted the entire ground beneath them and threw them half a mile in the air or so. Ya know, the usual. So, what did you need?"

    Bow: "Ah...ya know, nothin' much. Just came to...chat, I guess. *Sigh*"

    I remember some folks thought Kyle Reculla was for Monster High. Ha!

    On displaying him without the heart - I guess you can't really fault Mattel for that. On the US card didn't he come packaged with the alternate armor?

    He's a nobleman. That is why he wears gold. It's over Eamon!

    I guess I'm ok with most of the bio. The "Magic Heart that beats frantically when She-Ra is in trouble" bit is...weird to me. I think it would've made a lot more sense to make the Heart some kind of family crest, or maybe some kind of special medal of honor bestowed upon him by Angella for his bravery. But I'm not really feeling the angle they took on this one.

    "Special friend of She-Ra?" I realize they are paying homage to the vintage POP line, but that irks me too. I think he could have been represented much better.

    The figure still looks awesome! The 4H turned a once tragic action figure into something that can stand next to the Masters and compare. Excellent on that.

    The bio....hmmm....uhh.....well......yeah...... Ok, I'll try to put words to it.

    It doesn't really say much about Bow. The only new info we got was that he was in Queen Angella's Court before the Rebellion began. I'm cool with that. The heart beating when She-Ra is in danger is a bit weak. It would have been better if Angella was in danger or even Adora.

    I'm ok with the tag "special friend..." It's vintage and can be overlooked and even accepted.

    I think Bow liking Adora might lead to a love triangle when and if a Sea Hawk figure is introduced. I believe that's the reason why Bow is in love with Adora, rather than She-Ra.

    Yes! Finally a great figure. Great tidbit about the fact that he's secretly in love with Adora!

    U think one day they'll get married.....maybe we'll have another heir to Randor's throne!

    No need for rants here as the writing is on the wall in my opinion that he's totally out of place in look and bio.

    But ya know what, some folks love him and I'd sooner have a brand that caters to the widest demographic as possible. Not many brands can do that so that can only be a good thing?!

    Do you guys think there's some meaning behind his last name, Reccula? Do you think it's because Bow is musical?

    Bow's bio reminds me of Neil Diamond's ode to E.T. I can just hear, "turn on your heartlight, let it shine wherever you gooooooo!"
