    Horde Prime here is very hit and miss for me.

    Things I like: Filmation looking hand, Horde symbol attached to the shoulder things looks neat, inclusion of the UK comic head, color scheme.

    Things I dislike: Absolutely everything else -- but especially the fish helmet (ugh!).

    I was never a fan of the UK comic version of Prime, but it is really cool that they are including that head. I am more excited about the Filmation looking hand they have him holding the staff with as that is what I always remember... that huge robotic hand slamming down!

    Not impressed with him at all. Way to much reuse. I think once the hype wears off and people look at him the reaction will change. He is a slop together of a bunch of other guys.

    Hordak feet
    Trap-Jaw shins
    Roboto arms
    Faceless One loin cloth
    Hordak face
    Hordak armor
    reworked Roboto hands
    reworked Faceless One cape
    reworked Hordak bow and staff

    Not much new there. He just does not grab me. Might be the colors? I don't know.

    I thought I was the only one who saw it as a fish head. What a relief

    I’m torn on Horde Prime. There’s so much about him that I like. I just really, really hate that “skirt”. In contrast, I really like his helmet, which is odd, because I usually immediately reject clunky-looking helmets. Go figure. I really like his other head, too. So this might actually be the first Classics figure that I’ll have to buy two of.

    I do agree with others, though. I really think Horde Prime should have been a twelve inch figure, at least. I think that’s a missed opportunity. Sure, he would have taken up a beast slot, but it would have been well worth it.

    Those are all new pieces. The ONLY piece that may be re-used in what I quoted above is 1/2 the staff (unless it's one solid piece...then it's all new and just looks similar because it's sculpted by the 4H...like Gorilla Grodd vs Gygor).

    Re: fish head. I never saw it until you guys kept mentioning it! I only see it representing the Filmation head (with the top part of his throne included).

    Yeah, I didn't see the "fish head" at first either. I STILL think he's awesome. And the parts re-use is very well done. There's still a ton of new cool stuff here.

    Unfortunately, it was the first thing that popped into my mind when I fist saw the figure.

    Do you have some pictures to show what the throne looked like? I want to see where the reference came from

    I can't be 100% on this, but to me he looks like a big mechanical man (like Onslaught from X-Men) sitting on a throne. The green circle of energy looks like the spot his armour ends and the throne begins (in my opinion). We'll never know for sure unless someone has the Horde Prime art somewhere like what Evil-Seed looks like under his robe!



    EDIT: You can see Horde Prime in the cartoon in the first few minutes of this episode. There are a couple close-ups of his "face."

    I don't really get the crustacean head, but the rest of him is awesome. He also seems to resemble 2002 Hordak.
    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.

    I can't even begin to describe how happy I am about this! In the course of a single year, I will have added: Queen Marlena, Shadow Weaver, Sorceress, Sorceress (variant), Helmetless Evil-Lyn, AND Horde Prime to my collection.

    ...Now I just need Scorpia, Shokoti, Madame Razz, and King Miro, and I can die a happy man, LOL!

    I really love the idea of Horde Prime and the figure itself is great. There is not one thing I dislike about this design. I can't wait to have him, and I wonder what his other head will look like...

    Wow. Horde Prime looks freaking cool. I'm very excited for that figure.

    While his character has been around for since the POP Filmatin cartoon, he's never existed in figure form, so he represents something new.

    His colors look great and his basic design looks wicked.

    I don't like the design of the UK head but I'm very happy that we are getting it. I know there are fans of that design, and it does represent motu history.

    So I really am pleased to be getting it. That's a wonderful gift from the 4H and Toyguru and it is appreciated.

    Nice reuse of the Faceless One's skirt piece, and I love the black Roboto arms.

    Of course now I'm in a quandry with this figure. I don't know what to do with him.

    Like Baron Terror, I prefer the grey magic using Hordak to be Horde Prime and the blue tech using Filmation version to be Hordak.

    It's such a simple solution and it works.

    I think I may just keep this one Horde Supreme and use him as my Horde Prime's (the current grey Classics Hordak) and the eventual Filmatin Hordak's father on my toy shelf.

    Either way, I dig this figure and I can't wait to get him.

    If anyone has free time, could you Photoshop silver arms on Horde Prime and leave the black wires? I'm REALLY curious to see what that looks like...but I suck at doing that kind of thing in Photoshop.

    I really Like the HP figure, but I too wish he was 12" and fully articulated. I would like alot more info on this character but have always had trouble accepting him over Skeletor, as I did with Hordak. As long as Skeletor stays the main villian im happy.
    For the video still it also looked to me that he had wings or something as theres red lines coming out the darkness by his headpiece??? I do like the design and the red and black are awesome!

    Absolutely! Same feelings here. Plus, for me, Demo-Man with Alcala-Skeletor-head is another superb addition to my collection. If somewhere along the line we could get Oo-Larr (looking like the mini-comic): one happy camper here. Oh yeah, and let's not forget Stinkor... Man, really, for me, this line is working out great.

    I think the UK version head may look a bit out of place when he goes onto Horde Primes body, hope it dosent as that may be the head i will display. Id love a better look at the face under the helmet.

    I know HP and Hordak are brothers but i dont want them looking to similar, the only issue i have with the HP is the Hordak symbol on the armor, HP is of higher rank but why would he have a lower rank villian on his armor even if they are brothers, looking forward to the bio.

    Since I never liked the concept of a Horde Prime, (I always preferred Hordak to answer to no one), I'm kinda tempted to get 2 of these figures and just refer to them as some kind of 'Elite Guard' Horde Troopers or something when displaying them with their helmets on.....



    Also, this figure might look pretty cool with Skeletor's head, as Horde Armor Skeletor.

    I don't really see the fish thing now that we have seen close ups of the helmet and red Hordak face, if anything to me it looks more like a rabbit



    I can't wait to get 2 of him, just an awesome figure all around

    Rarely if ever does that happen, with MOTUC since 2009 it has been either hate = hate or hate = love (see Vikor for example)

    I can't recall a figure released in the past 3 years where the majority have loved its reveal or thought of it as cool and then decided nope it sucks or were disappointed. The Star Sisters possibly but those who love them still love them they just wish some changes to be made color wise at the least.

    Generally with MOTUC how you feel upon seeing it is how you feel at the end unless the figure wins you over.

    Man there are gona be SO many looks for this figure! Helmet on, helmet off, the UK head, and you can obviously see Hordak's cowl under there, so I imagine that's gona be an option as well! I'm really looking forward to that red head as well; you can tell (by holding Hordak by the pic) that the head is a new sculpt rather than a red Hordak head.

    Oh hey, few new pics at TNI with the UK head on.

    Damn.. I'm happy we get him but I really don't like the design and color scheme too much.
    Second head is ofcourse perfect, but because I love the UK design I would want his body to look more like that.

    And the Faceless One's shorts..
    MOTUC needs:Tung Lashor, Rio-Blast and rest of the Hordes!
