    HURRICANE HORDAK discussion

    The 1st Hordak release had 5 accesories:

    Besides Armor and Cape, we get Staff, Crossbow, Imp (with a a lot of detail), but with the new variant we get just 3 acc and the same armor.

    Why we can get another cape or other cool accesory?

    Also I prefer a vac metalized armor like the vintage one...

    I had Hurricane Hordak when I was kid and the MOTUC version is cool, but Im a bit dissapointed in no big improvements or surprises here...

    This weapons also connect with Trap Jaw???

    But Hurricane Hordak has a new Headdress (without a cape) and he has the 3 vintage accessories he had (Propeller, knife shield thing, and Ball mace) The Armor could be new. We can't see the back piece and the 4H MIGHT have sculpted a new armor to add the dial from the vintage figure... (They did it with Optikk and SyKlone)
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    While I wouldn't say no to something extra, I'm happy with what he's got. And anyway, he's a bonus figure, isn't he? That usually means minimal new stuff and small amount of accessories. That being the case, I think he's pretty well rounded!

    I agree with this. Given the formula though, I hope they do not bother with Buzz Saw Hordak until sometime in late 2016 if at all.

    Key note: a vac metalized armor and he would be perfect.

    I hate he didn't get it same goes for He-Ro.

    Do you think they'll bother with that one at all? Maybe I lack imagination, but it's just a Hordak with a chest that opens and there's a saw in it right? No changes to the look what-so-ever. And since there are no action feature's he may as well be Buzz-Saw-Cabinet-Hordak.

    Buzz-Saw Hordak is cool so I definitely hope they make him.

    Re: Hurricane Hordak. Awesome! What a welcome surprise.

    On second look, am interested to see how the weapons work - it looks like the weapon parts may have a hole in them meaning there's a peg hanging out of Hordak's laser arm?? I thought Mattel would use a similar connection to Trap Jaw and Roboto.

    Really need to see a pic of Hordak's right arm without weapon inserted.

    I woulda loved the vac armor much like he-ro, however, in a way its safer, 85 percent of my vac metal childhood toys have flaked off or scratched to hell.

    Unfortunately, I cannot say I love this Hordak. In fact, I hate him. The gold color looks out of place. The arm with the helicopter blade just looks rediculous. Does he even come with a real hand? This might be the first extra figure I get rid of.
    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.

    would have been cool to have another accessory. like a blue imp.
    had him as a kid. the original had gold shiny chrome like plastic.
    maybe it would flake like the silver-hawks. i had a character for tmnt called chrome dome his shiny chrome worn off.

    Quite correct - the only significant difference is a slightly misshapen Horde symbol to cover up the door:


    What they possibly could do, though, is use the name for a styleguide Hordak...

    personally, i love HH ...

    the gold paint job is really cool (yes, vac-metalised would have been cooler) and i like his weapons arsenal too ...

    I like Hurricane Hordak ! He looks awesome !

    In the 80's, I personally think that Hurricane Hordak was the best looking Hordak of them all...

    This MOTUC HH, if done, assembled, painted, articulated and produced properly, should be a quick seller.

    P.S. : can anyone confirm that Hurricane Hordak's shoulders are assembled properly (at least, for the prototype we saw at WonderCon) ?

    Since so much of HH is just regular Hordak, it would be AWESOME if Mattel gave him new, "fixed" ankles. That would be pretty sweet.

    80's lookback!

    I think Hurricane Hordak looks awesome and as a child i always preferd him over the original release, the shining armor is much more appealing and reminds me of Modreds golden armor in Excalibur which simply looked awesome.

    The gold gives him an even more superior look.

    The three accessories are great but i would wish there would be a simply right hand as another accessory.

    Isnīt his loincloth longer than the first one?

    Hurricane Hordak has been one of my most wanted variants so I'm really glad were getting him. It's about time we got a Hordak variant and the fact he's been shown with Leech makes him even more exciting.

    Catra, Leech and Hurricane Hordak all in one year! Hopefully well see Mantenna in 2012.

    I think that's the best idea for Buzz saw Hordak. Like it has been said, that Hordak is pretty much the same thing as normal Hordak save for the chest cavity. I wouldn't be interested in him, but if they made the style guide version, it would make him different enough to buy again (I don't have any nostalgia for that look, but it's an iconic look all the same, and has plenty of fan backing). All they would need is a removeable chest-plate that could be replaced with an "open" one (or looks like it's open) and has some saws popping out. Heck, would be a nice addition to throw in a removeable arm (like Trap-Jaw) and add in the Hurricane arm as well (though, sans arm attachments to keep the figure in the "bonus" relm).

    I'd like it if they painted his flat abd piece black, but kept the top removable armor piece gold. That way if I wanted to swap out the gold armor with the black armor of the original figure for a more Filmation Hordak, I'd have that option.
