Two in one night! Woo! Now I gotta get ready for the holidays!
thumbs up, good review.
Does Galactus fart?
Great (& funny) review. Love the figure!
But still the same problem with hard capes & shield attachment!? Jezuz.
Still, I've found the shields I have attach well if you clip them to the actual hand. Not sure if this'll work for Vikor.
I agree with your views on the Star Wars Concept figures. For a bit there, they were the only Star Wars figures I was buying (or trying to buy). I LOVE concept figures. This is certainly one of the best in that category. I'm so glad he's part of the sub. I do not wana miss this guy.

Alexx has a blog?! Come on in and check out Toys and Tomfoolery! You won't regret it...until the next morning.
Really looking forward to Vikor! Great review as usual PD.
200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!
I cannot wait for my Conan figure to arrive.
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.
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.
I'm really excited about this new character. The human characters have always been my favorites. I hope they continue to bring in more as time goes on with the line.
Good job, PD.

Vikors looking cool, not to fussed about the slight articulation problem as he still moves enough for my needs. I like the idea of a viking character, ignoring him being a 'he-man' though lol. Think I'll clip his shield on the other way around though, looks odd to me having his hand sticking out of the end of it.
Did he have the new ankle joint?
What's it like?
Can't wait for this figure!

There's been a lot of talk recently among those that have received Vikor that he features a new, and somewhat inferior neck-peg, that actually reduces his neck-articulation, other than his hair and cape already do.
Can you do a second follow-up on this highly popular figure, like you did with Teela, that was also a highly popular figure, with some other questions?
Also, can you double-check if your Vikor has the scars on various parts of his body, that some people are reporting is missing on their Vikors?
Very nice review.
He looks awesome.
Too bad about the loose shield, though.
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.
While he is growing on me a little, Vikor is still one I'm not particularly interested in. While I like the idea of getting new unreleased characters, (I was ecstatic about getting a He-Ro figure even if his new bio stinks) I don't particularly care for this one.
Maybe it's because I don't like Pre-Filmation elements. Or maybe it's because this guy is simply a He-Man variant and thus I feel should not be a monthly character. You could say with the subscription being all in now that it makes little difference, but then again the result is multiple He-Man variants instead of more individual characters. Again while it wasn't the only factor, this was a major reason for 20XX's premature end.
I don't object to concept art characters being made, I just wish they would do what Star Wars did and acknowledge them as concept characters and not force them into the continuity thus changing what I know and love.
I will say the figure is very well sculpted and detailed. Aside from the over ridged cape. This is one of the reasons I actually like cloth capes for figures.

The more I see of this figure, the more I want it.
Just to point out, VeeBee of the fwoosh saus his shield clips on fine on his Vikor.
Great review. I don't like how the necklace is tighter around the neck then the prototype.
Can I request a pic of Vikor riding Battle Cat with out the saddle and mask?

I think it is fine with one clip as I do not have any problem with the shield staying on.
Why would you want 2 clips?
I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!
Vikor looks amazing. He'll be one of the ancient Warrior Kings of Eternia as mentioned in one of the Filmation shows in my canon!
Another great review Dan!
