    I like the figure, but I'm not really feeling this bio. Not enough info on Bow and the "in love with Adora" thing kinda bugs me. Anyways no one said these bios where set in stone canon. I can say though next year the sub already seems far more worth my money than this year's.

    Great figure and great bio!

    I hope people don't start complaining that he ISN'T gay now?

    After looking it up... Some of them did come like this apparently, but I would agree that it's lame to mention the heart feature and not display him with that.

    ...and no Kowl? Kowl is his best friend/right hand man. That's really, really awful that he isn't mentioned.

    At least he still looks cool...
    *slaps forehead* Duh, can't believe I didn't catch either of those things... Then again Bow's Toyfare ad had "Etherian" mispelled as "Eterian", so it looks like more proofreading error, or they just said the hell with it, print it.

    'Course, I'm already ignoring the bio, la la la, so I'll pretend I didn't see the errors.

    It said this on the front:

    Bow
    Special friend
    who helps She-Ra!

    Make his heart "beat" for She-Ra!

    ...and on the back:

    Bow
    Special friend
    of She-Ra!

    Push button on back
    ...his heart "beats"
    for She-Ra!

    Licensing Kit says this:

    Thanks Darkspecter.
    SO the bio is now correct to the style guide.

    I initially wasn't wowed by Bow at SDCC but seeing him MOC has made me like him even more. I will have to look up the Bow threads now

    Bow will be Pimpin' the Pornstache in my display

    Sigh... And Bow was finally starting to look like a cool character.
    What a way to ruin him with the lame character title and bio.
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    I'm sort of with you here...I really wish they'd chosen a more dynamic pose for the picture on the back as well...perhaps something from a minicomic...

    Apparently he's bi. Bo was in love with Adora, but she wasn't having it, so he moved on to her brother. What a crazy soap opera MOTUC is!

    The figure itself I like. I may buy a second one to play around with some attempt at customizing. See how he would look with a He-Man head and some diffrent armor

    The more I think about "Special Friend to She-Ra" and being love with Adora, a lot of jokes enter my brain none of which would be appropriate for this website.

    I also thought of this comic

    This is a great bio, it is another link in the chain that is the whole MOTUC story. The bio also does well in paying homage to the original DOLL as it is now an action figure. As for those of you scoffing at the "in love with Adora" part, gimme a break. If they didnt include that, you would all be scoffing about him being gay, which by the way, i wish was the case!

    Adora's safety is already covered with "The Locket" that warns Sea Hawk when she's in danger.

    But seriously, since the heart is actually something part of Bow's armor, maybe it only works with She-Ra.

    I think the name Kyle sounds fine. It fits in well with names like Adam and Duncan. If Bow had been his real name that would just have been cheesy. The only part of the bio I didn't like was the "heart beating faster when She-Ra is in trouble..." That could have been left out, but hey, whatever.

    In Panthor's bio, it will reveal that Panthor is in love with Cringer.

    I was thinking Reccula sounded like some word from a sci-fi franchise's made-up language. Klingon maybe? That would be one rough name to have in grade school. Let's hope Bow was home schooled.

    So wait.... I thought Bow was always in love with She-Ra, not Adora...?? Isn't Adora alot younger than Bow is? Not really feeling this.... Not feeling the name "Kyle" either.

    In my MOTU canon, Bow is really his name, and he is infatuated with She-Ra, not Adora. Thanx for asking.

    Everything is vintage except for the heart...I guess Mattel is worried about men who are afraid to a man with a heart on his armor.
    I wasn't worried about how vintage he looked. That's for core POP fans. I just remember Bow w/ the Stache and Heart on his chest. I was just pointing out that some of these taglines are aweful and yes Grizzlors tagline is bad as well.

    I ask Toyguru at mattycollector why he is now in love with Adora and not She-Ra and he answers very fast: (thanks for the answer)

    Toyguru: "The text was based on (word for word) the 1987 licensor kit, not the Filmation series which we do not have rights to."

    Isn't 'Kyle' one of the names Olympia Dukakis (as Clairee Belcher) mentions in Steel Magnolias? How did it go???? ...Oh yeah, "All gay men have track lightin', and all gay men are named Mark, Rick, Kyle or Steve."

    Neat. Good to know.

    I'd guess that Bow's heart beats for She-Ra because she is Adora, even though Bow doesn't know. Maybe Bow thinks it beats for Adora, when in fact it's beating for both?

    I know Evil-Lyn's real name bothered a lot of people(I happened to love it), but the name Kyle stands out a little more thatn Evelyn for some reason imo. It's not awful, but it makes him sound more like a character on a soap opera rather than a nobleman. Otherwise I don't dislike the bio. While I feel Mattel should have left out Bow's secret love if they couldn't use She-Ra(are the Filmation rights that strict?), at least it's technically for the same person. It could have been for Mermista. As for his "connection" to She-Ra when she's in trouble, it may be kind of cheesy, but I still kinda like it. It reminds me of Superman & Lois Lane if Lois ran to "help" Superman when he was in trouble.

    Duncan is the name of a yoyo and Adam is the oldest name in existence(if you read the bible).

    Well, we now have the answer. And yeah, that was fast!

    And even though they don't have the rights to Filmation for the Classics canon, in our canons, on our shelves, he can be in love with who ever we want him to...
    I love an all inclusive canon!
