    If the blue power sword belongs to Vikor...

    ...then why does it clash so horribly with his outfit?

    No, seriously. Everyone else is color coordinated.


    Why couldn't Mattel give him a power sword in the same shade of green as the rest of his weapons?

    I think most of us were ok with not having a story for the blue sword...

    This is news to me. Where were we told that it belongs to Vikor?

    Toyguru stated this somewhere. I think that because it's a light blue, icy sort of color, the He-Man of the North seems appropriate. Besides, Vikor is too manly to worry about color-coordinating his "outfit" with his weapons, especially if it's the mos powerful weaponin the Uiverse!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I can't find the link anywhere, but Vikor was orginally scheduled to come with a half blue power sword to match the full blue power sword in the 1st Weapons Pack. TG Said that even though they were not able to include the half sword, it is intended for Vikor.

    If I'm not mistaken, the half sword was among his accessories at SDCC.

    EDIT: Ah! Here's a link. http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/t...s-motuc-vikor/

    An olive green sword would have been nice, but no biggy

    I don't really see an issue with the color of the sword, though it would be nice if I didn't have to go back and buy the weapons pack to have a full sword.

    If you replace Vikor's weapons with the blue axe, blue shield, and silver/blue power sword (all from the weapons pak), then there is no clashing

    The weapons don't clash with each other, but they certainly clash with his wardrobe. It burns! It burns!

    Vikor though never used the power sword, he was one of the Swordless He-Men, like Oo-Larr, neither had the power sword. So yeah, it doesn't belong to him if you ask me.

    I think a dull gold/bronze colored hilt would look best for his sword.

    My Prince Keldor figure is holding the blue weapons pak power sword so I think Vikor will receive the darker half-sword that came with fellow He-sword guardian Wun-Dar.

    My guess is that the best excuse could be the whole icy north thing, but the truth, IMO, is that they tacked that part of the story on at the end as a way of giving reason for the old skool weapons pak weapons.

    Now that I think about it Vikor might actually look really cool in that brownish/yellow Beastman armor.

    It's a bit bothersome that everyone is so neatly coordinated, as if everyone has had their weapons specially made just for them.

    Sure production makes it cheaper when they're cast in one color, but for people finding antique weapons that have been hidden and handed down for generations and it suddenly color matches.

    The storyline shoulda been something like the more He-Men that used the sword, the more the original blue sparkly "power" version that came with He-Ro was disappearing.

    I didn't buy the re-issue King Greyskull, but didn't he come with a half solid silver/half mystical blue-sparkly sword? Vikor should have gotten one that was less sparkly, but not entirely solid silver imo

    i don't know why it would bother you that others want to color coordinate their figs.

    i can tell you that i am mostly displaying my figs and not playing with them (other than to take photos in different poses) so it's far more important that they look good.

    I guess the blue weapons were given to him by the Goddess when he became the protector of the Sword of He. Before that he used the weapons that come with the figure.

    I don't mind the colours not matching, we've seen that kind of thing before with Clawful's green mace & Man-E-Faces' red gun.

    fwiw, the problem is that the blue on those is just too light and for me looks lame. the only use i found was to pair the axe and shield with tru 2 pack merman. i'll probably repaint the sword at some point.
