    CHARACTERS

    First Up -

    EVIL WARRIORS


    SKELETOR

    Skeletor appears much the same as he always has, albiet with a slightly new, cooler, outfit with spikey shoulder pads:-



    Promotional artwork also shows him with a whiter skull face, similar in tone to his 87 Movie version. He has a new magic staff, with a black crystal on top. He is even more bitter than ever since his 10 year exile in the ice caverns, and reclaims his headquarters in Snake Mountain.

    PANTHOR

    Panthor is still around, and loyal to his master. In this version he is described with completely black fur, which may be due to his aging.

    EVIL-LYN

    No mention is made of where Evil-Lyn has been during the 10 years Skeletor was imprisoned in his ice-prison, but she still appears to be the same as ever. Plotting behind Skeletors back, and determined to become the Empress Of Eternia, with or without Skeletor. Young Dare seems to have a hard time figuring out Evil-Lyn, as she lies more convincingly than telling the truth. Evil-Lyn has a new, more revealing, outfit!




    BEAST-MAN

    Beast-Man seems to bethe same as always. The only additional point, is that Evil-Lyn occasionaly tries to turn Beast-Man against Skeletor for her own decietful purposes.



    MER-MAN

    Same as always, although seems to have a more slender look to his face and body.



    TRAP-JAW

    Same as always, though seems to have a new Jaw with spikey teeth, and no longer wears a helmet. A few other upgrades to his body too.



    ODAR (MOST LIKELY STINKOR)

    A character is mentioned that is exactly the same as Stinkor. Based on the fact that Stinkor's real name is Odiphus, it doesn't take that big of a leap to suggest Odar is just a shortened version of Odiphus. Therefore, most likely same character!

    TUNG LASHOR

    Presumambly the ex-SnakeMan warrior, now joined forces with Skeletor. The only promotional image of him, doesn't appear to resemble the vintage Tung-Lashor too much, but when compared side by side with the 200X Tung-Lashor, they could easily be the same character, they even have the same blotches, fangs, and similar shaped hunched over head.




    NEW EVIL WARRIORS

    Skeletor has 5 New Evil Warriors to help in his quest for world domination-

    MISSILE-TOE

    Appears to be a robot-tank like character, fully armed with deadly weapons, bombs and missiles. He is described as being very accident prone, and occasionally blows him self up by tripping over his own feet.

    EVER-MEAN

    Half-Man, Half-Plant and very paranoid. Seems to have a need for sunlight, to photosynthesise his food. Has deadly vines that he uses to capture his foes. Very similar to Evil-Seed, but clearly a different character altogether.

    BUG-EYE

    He is described as a pest, who can control insects and creepy-crawlies the same way Beast-Man controls beasts.

    SLOB-BOAR

    Appears to have a short temper. Is part man, part pig, and has a set of sharp slashing tusks.

    SAW-TOOTH

    The only new villain with no promotional image as far as I am aware. He is described as having a mouth full of sharp teeth serrated like a saw blade. Appaently he always eats, and will eat anything, including gems, gold and magic items.




    EVIL VEHICLES

    The Evil Warriors have some new vehicles, that are mechanical beasts with robot brains and simple personalities. They have artificial intelligence, and can talk to their pilots.

    KARNA-REK

    This is Skeletor's personal all-terrain vehicle, shaped like a monster-truck, with giant jaws of steel, and flame throwing eyes. (No image exists)

    AQUA-REK

    A shark-like vehicle that can cruise through the ocean, and also travel on land. Appears to be described as a portable Headquarters of sorts.




    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    HEROIC WARRIORS


    KING ADAM / HE-MAN

    Adam is now king, older and wiser and married to Queen Teela, and they have an adopted son, Prince Dare, who now wields the power sword. Adam occasionally misses the ability to turn into He-Man after passing the torch, but is still able too, once in a while, when Dare gets himself into trouble and can't use the power sword.
    Adam's relationship with his new adopted son, is sometimes fatherly, and sometimes brotherly. He vows to help Dare find out about the mystery surrounding his real parents.




    QUEEN TEELA

    27 year old Teela is still very much independent, even as Queen, and she rules Eternia as a tough and demanding leader, much like she ruled the Royal Guard in the past. She is fully able to make decsions regarding the ruling of Eternia when King Adam is not available, but she also watches out for her adopted son, Dare, and gives him love and advice when he needs it.

    (No image exists of Queen Teela)

    MAN-AT-ARMS /DUNCAN

    Older, Grizzled and "semi-retred", Duncan now serves King Adam, as he once served King Randor,now under the title of Chief Tactical Advisor to the King. He is one of the few who is fully aware of Dare's dual identity as He-Ro.
    He misses the "good old days" but realises he's not the tireless adventurer he once was. He still builds many new weapons, with the help of Dare, who he tries to teach the way of royalty and honor.



    THE SORCERESS

    Spiritual voice and oracle to He-Ro who radiates the power of good. He-Ro is the vessel in which her energy now flows.

    ORKO

    Exactly the same as he once was. Has found a new friend in Dare, and the two of them occasionally get up to mischief and misadventure. He still has his girlfriend, Dree-Elle, and a possibly new uncle, named Dorko.

    CRINGER / BATTLE CAT

    Although Cringer is older, he has not aged, and still retains his youthful personality. Adam has entrusted Cringer to keep an eye on Dare, and make sure he stays out of trouble.

    Cringer has a new rival, in the form of Dare's loudmouth pet bird, Craven. The two of them rarely see eye-to-eye.

    Cringer is still able to turn into Battle-Cat, and now helps He-Ro as he once did He-Man, into battle against the Evil Warriors. Interestingly, Battle Cat now appears to look more Battle-Lion-like, and even has blue fur. It is unclear if Cringer still retains his original green and orange stripes.



    RAM-MAN

    Ram-Man appears the same as he always did, but now with new armor! He sports a new cool black and blue color scheme...



    MAN-E-FACES

    Man-e-faces is still able to use his mimic abilities to spy on the oposition, and get into the enemy territory unnoticed. He seems to have been given a radical makeover, possibly more "mime" like, and not at all like our original Man-e-faces that we know and love. (*see the section at the end for a possible suggestion if people don't like his new look*)




    NEW HEROIC WARRIORS

    PRINCE DARE / HE-RO

    As Dare, he is a 13 year old kid,and still thinks of himself as an orphan who has no idea who his real parents were. His adopted father King Adam promises to help him track them down, and there are suspicions that Dare and Adam are possibly related by blood. Dare has some difficulties adjusting to civilized life, especially living with royalty, but still retains the ability to communicate with animals, and have all the skills of a wildchild raised in the forests.



    As he has inherited the power swordfrom his adoptive father, Prince Dare is able to transform into the mighty He-Ro, in which he becomes a mighty warrior. His strength and powers increase, as well as his feral skills, setting him apart from He-Man before him.



    CRAVEN / BATTLE-BIRD

    An incompetent crow, who has learned the ability to talk from Dare, and has been his companion ever since they were small. Very enthusiastic to battle evil, but not very skillfull in the art of fighting.



    When Dare first become He-Ro, Craven was perched on his shoulder, thus also transforming him into the mighty Battle-Bird - a huge armored fighting creature, large enough for Dare to ride on! Battle-Bird and Battle-Cat have a competitive rivalry to see who can win dare's praise, and who can be the bravest and best in battle.



    KAY-LA

    17 year old Kay-La is Man-At-Arm's niece (and presumably Fisto's daughter?), and is instructed with teaching Prince Dare how to compose himself in public. She feels she is ready to be a warrior, as she has been trained in martial arts, swordplay and marksmanship, and feels bitter about having to "babysit" Dare. She is aware that Dare has a crush on her, but her true affections lie with the mighty warrior He-Ro.
    Although she is well trained, her immaturity and eagerness to jump into action often gets her in trouble.



    AIR-BAG

    This Heroic Warrior can puff up like a weather balloon in the heat of battle, and emit a blast of hurricane-force hot-air, to knock down any Evil Warriors in his way. He can also put out fires, but can be deflated with sharp needles!



    FORK-LIFT

    Fork-Lift is gung-ho and enthusiastic and able to pick up heavy objects with his fork-like arms, and throw them over his head. He-Man and He-Ro rely on him for moving any heavy duty objects when they are not around.

    HEROIC VEHICLES

    FLIP-TEK

    Eternian science has developed mechanical beasts to help the Heroic warriors. They have Artificial intelligence, and can speak to their pilots. The Flipp-Tek is a large vehicle that can change between a submarine, a hydroplane and a land-based armored personnel carrier.



    TERRA-TEK

    This armored all-terrain vehicle looks like a Stegasaurus and has 6 seats, 6 wheels, and can go from zero to sixty in 6 seconds!




    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    So in all we got a handful of new figure possibilities here for Masters Of The Universe Classics-

    HEROIC WARRIORS

    Variants-

    KING ADAM
    QUEEN TEELA (no visual representation)
    OLD MAN-AT-ARMS
    BLUE BATTLE-CAT
    BLACK ARMORED RAM-MAN
    VARIANT MAN-E-FACES (*though see below for suggestion)

    New figures

    DARE (use teenage buck) wth CRAVEN
    HE-RO (SON OF HE-MAN)
    KAY-LA
    AIR-BAG (v. similar to a concept character from power and honor catalogue)
    FORKLIFT

    EVIL WARRIORS

    Variants

    OLD SKELETOR
    BLACK PANTHOR
    FUTURE EVIL-LYN
    NEW TRAP-JAW(?)

    New figures

    MISSILE-TOE
    EVER-MEAN
    BUG-EYE
    SLOB-BOAR
    SAW-TOOTH (no visual representation)


    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    BONUS

    So I mentioned earlier that the only character that looks out of place is the new version of Man-E-Faces. All the other upgrades of old characters still retain many of their original aspects, and look like simple variants...but Man-E-Faces looks completely different...

    Infact, with that strange suit, mask, arm-braclets with a clock on, and a clock symbol on his chest, let's be honest, he looks more like...

     




    Unless anyone REALLY wants a version of Man-E-Faces that looks like that, I'm going to suggest that this character that appears here is simply a variant version of everyone's favorite time-travelling heroic warrior, The Mighty Spector! Look! They look just the same!!!!! And he has clocks all over him...in the same places that he has symbols on the figure...and he even has a wristband with a time device on it!!!

    So, please drop a comment if you really want to see Man-E-faces end up like this in the future, or if you'd simply be happy to write this character off as a Mighty Spector variant.

    (But why would The Mighty Spector be working for King Adam, I hear you ask??? Keep reading the Bios!!!!!)

    due to the power sword being blessed or cursed by king grayskull so that only his heirs can use it in motuc that narrows the parents down to king he-man/adam, skeletor (keldor), adora/she-ra, illegitimate son of randor with majestrix(evil-lyn)

    I say that to bring this new era into light is to bring the MOTUC line into newer depths that should hopefully prolong the life of it all! Bring them alll!!!!!!

    I don't think any of these designs are particularly strong, but a Dare/He-Ro figure would be neat.

    I just can't get into this "storyline" for some reason. I know though, once the story advances it will grow on me, but so far, not a fan.

    I would love more figures from this era, but I doubt we'll be getting them with the revised "vintage only" policy.

    I'm really hoping that motuc will make figures for Son Of He-Man era.

    I feel we already have a few like: King He-Man, The Mighty Spector, Fearless Photog, Sir Laser Lot & others that are simple vintage character we already are familiar with.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I feel that other characters that were in the creat a character contest would make great SOHM characters like:

    Ra-Jar, Three Beast, Bubblor & Magor Header.

    I personally feel Bubblor & Three Beast would make great body guards or generals for Horde Prime.
    Skeleton-Warriors, Ra-Jar, Spinwit, Rock Golem, Evil Seed, Lord Masque, Prahvus, General Tartaran, Hawke, Slob-Boar, King Agho, Hunga the Harpy, Sh'gora, Masks of Power Demons, Nocturna, Lizzor, Horde Wraiths, Sagitar, Crimson Fury, Lodar, Vizar, Angast, Negator, Melaktha, ABC Giants, Stridor

    I'm really surprised that this thread hasn't bumped back up. Maybe nobody cares about this faction of MOTU anymore?? I was actually excited by the anouncement.

    "SON OF HE-MAN" CLASSICS logo added for completism!



    I really like it!


    I still wonder if there is any connection between the 2 He-Ro's (ie if they are going to end up being the same guy with time travel elements included?) Scott Neitlcih let slip that He-Man named his son Dare's alter ego, after theoriginal He-Ro (see Pixel Dan's SDCC 2012 walkthrough when they talk about King He-Man), but he also seems to quieten up when Dan mentions the possible connection, so Scott may be keeping quiet on the matter at the moment...


    Anyway, so far - additions to this era seem to include ->

    -Skeletor and Evil Lyns Son (Speculation, as it hasn't officially been confirmed he's part of this era)

    -King He-Man with eyes scar and broken Electronic Power Sword

    -Mighty Spector and the elusive "Time Agents" (wanna bet future Man-E-Faces ends up being one too)

    -Eternia Time Wars

    -Sir Laser Lot is the new Man-At-Arms (stolen from the past)

    I think the idea is cool, but without exception, every single one of those designs is complete dog butts. Why the hell is Battle Cat blue? What happened to Man-E? Why do the women look like they were drawn by Rob Liefeld with their breasts in their throats and waists the width of their wrists?

    I have faith in the Horsemen if any of these figures other than King He-Man come out, but hikeeba are those some rotten designs.

    (Wonder if I had the same opinion back when this was first revealed here years ago. I remember talking about it but don't remember what I thought about it.)

    I have to assume that if MATTEL sticks with their 'Big Guns Only From Now On!' policy, we will see stuff like DARE/HE-RO (obviously), SKELETOR, QUEEN TEELA, BEAST MAN, TRAP JAW, MER MAN, MAN-AT-ARMS, RAM MAN, and EVIL LYN. I would think the others are long shots.

    But I've been proven wrong.... pretty much all the time.

    While I like to think of the motu story as having an 'end', before He-Man is king (a final battle where Skeletor and all the evildoers are defeated forever, everyone lives happily ever after, etc), I can't say I mind this. Ever since I read the series bible, I thought it was interesting. I'm surprised it wasn't made, to be honest. It has a lot of potential.

    I don't like most of those designs or new characters, however. I really like the King He-Man figure, and I would like to see what they do with Dare. If possible I wouldn't mind a 'Queen Teela', either.

    I agree they do resemble Rob Liefeld's work. I thought they looked similar to early X-Force, New Mutants comics from the early 90 & late eighties.

    I love to have The Son of He-Man to merge into the MOTU story & have figures in classics.
    But I do feel many need makeovers, some I feel could be dropped or completely changed like Air Bag, Fork-Lift, Kay La, Ever Mean, Tung Lashor, Bug Eye, Evil Lyn & Trap-Jaw.

    Some characters don't make much sense having due to the new story.
    M@A is now dead, Man-E looks like Spector, Tung Lashor is dead maybe, Trap-Jaw & Mer-Man are unlikely to serve with Skeletor. Evil Lyn is probably now a bitter enemy with Skeletor & is raising her son & she is without power.

    It would be cool to see a new Beast Man Variant & M@A (but he is now dead ).
    Skeleton-Warriors, Ra-Jar, Spinwit, Rock Golem, Evil Seed, Lord Masque, Prahvus, General Tartaran, Hawke, Slob-Boar, King Agho, Hunga the Harpy, Sh'gora, Masks of Power Demons, Nocturna, Lizzor, Horde Wraiths, Sagitar, Crimson Fury, Lodar, Vizar, Angast, Negator, Melaktha, ABC Giants, Stridor

    My guess is since we saw King He-Man, Dare is a given maybe he will become Preternian He-Ro and since we donīt know his real name maybe his parents(whoever they are going to be) gave him the name Gray when he was born but nobody except them knows, for now.

    Queen Teela should get a figure, as should Skeletor, Evil-Lyn.

    From the new ones iīm only interested in Kay-La and Bug-Eye as they are shown or how the were explained.

    Odar, Tung-Lashor and Ever-Mean are not making much sense right now. Keep the original persons or change those three and their powers completely, i donīt mind if characters changed over the years but characters who seem to be the same person but simply arenīt. I donīt get that concept. i want some clearance.
