    Hurricane Hordak and Leech carded!

    On Matty's Facebook!


    "Apparent death" of King Randor? Hmmm…me thinks he's not really dead. The vac metal paint app looks awesome!

    Leech…I LOVE the mentioning of the Lake of Gnarl! Ooooh…and he was "mind wiped" by Hordak's "lead witch"! Shadow Weaver anyone??

    **Due to the adult nature of some of the comments, please do not post direct links to Matty's Facebook page. Thanks! **

    Yay! *goes to look*

    EDIT: So Leech...the leech, is now a slug? I think my brain just exploded.


    The vac-metal armour on Hurricane Hordak looks spectacular though! If it holds up well, I hope we get a He-Ro with armour like this!

    So awesome!!! They look great and I love the bios. Although I'm not sure how I feel about the "Lead Witch" brainwashing all the Horde members. Didn't they brainwash Grizzlor too? That needs to stop and they can just be evil w/o being brainwashed!!

    Another example of why the biographies are so poor! This is extraordinary!

    But this is true as well. Ignore the biographies folks; just enjoy the figures.

    Leeches typically live in water only, while slugs live on land. Leech appears to be able to survive in both environments. I'll just go with he's a hybrid species that has evolved to survive on either dry land or in water.

    Is it just me or is the writing/grammar in Leech's bio atrocious?

    "...Leech was called from the depths by a magic spell of Hordak..."
    "OF Hordak"? Wouldn't it have been much better to write "from Hordak" or "of Hordak's"?

    ...to suck enemies of their strength...
    I know this is what he does, but I feel like "siphon" would have been a better choice here.

    Gah! I know it's nitpicking, but these really stick out at me and make me want to hit things. >.<

    As for the mindwiping. Totally no problem with it. That's what makes the Horde different from the Evil Warriors or the Snakemen. Hordak is too busy being a bad mama jamma to worry about "recruiting" or "insubordination". He just enslaves everyone he meets to ensure absolute compliance and loyalty. This doesn't make him weak. It makes him efficient. You don't become the ultimate tyrant dominating most of the known universe if you're constantly fending off plots against your rule. You crush free thought and independence before they can rear their ugly heads.

    In the rare case you do let them keep their wits, you make damn sure they don't try anything. Calix is doubtful? BAM, dead. Skeletor is snippy? Put his head in a magical vise. Now that I mention Skeletor, see what happened there? Too much independence. I rest my case.

    Leech still looks really cool...and I like his real name and species name!

    I'm not really interested in Hurricane Hordak, but it was good thinking to make his attachments work with Trap Jaw and Roboto.

    ugh...I think the vac-metal cheapens the line quite a lot. It just looks cheap and like they're trying DESPERATELY to hold kids' attention.

    But the rest of the figure looks awesome, as does Leech!!! And VERY interesting bios!!! Plenty to chew on here!

    Slug detected, man the harpoons!
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    as an homage to the original (which is one of the POINTS of this line) i think it adds to the line. I must be a kid because I love it, i think it looks great.

    Good catch!

    Even if they were just leaving room for Shadow Weaver, it's still suggestive that they have little to no respect for the POP cartoon... or maybe they just really aren't as familiar with it as they'd like us to believe...
    Well there is the chance like MGM says that Castaspella is ancient as well and they've moved Mysticor and the Council of Kings all back in time. But I don't now how they can do that and still keep it Etherian, since the Horde on Etheria happens after the banishment to Despondos in the bios (I need to go back and reread them).

    As for the no respect, it totally depends on what kind of room they're leaving. If Hordak employing a Lead Witch (why do I picture a sandwich with bullets in it?) is all they want to indicate, then it may just be a rank that Shadow Weaver will fill and they could actually get more than one figure out of this. Otherwise, they are favoring MYP's Preternia Horde too much IMO and devaluing Etheria too much.
