    The Dark Riders Support Thread.

    Ever since I seen them growing up, I always wanted The Dark Riders. They could look so wicked in MOTUC figure form, and could make for great army builders. And they could reuse the Swiftwind buck to make their evil steeds, just give them some different wings. I bet the "Riders" and the "Horses" could sell like crazy...I know I would buy a lot of them. Plus I want more members of The Horde!

    I wonder if they could say that Demo-Man was a Dark Rider? Would explain why Hordak chose him to bond with Keldor. You take two of your crack soldiers and merge 'em in to one. Of course, who knew that Keldor was a snake.
    Gwildor: Moo? Moo.
    He-Man: Gwildor!
    Gwildor: I'm going, I'm going...Moo!

    I don't know if I have seen this episode...but they are incredibly awesome!
    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

    Those guys and their horses are pretty darned cool looking. I'd be down for having them produced eventually.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    the horses and skeleton warriors are pretty tight, could see them do them similar to how scareglow is done. also the horses look like they could be done fairly easily with a few changes to swift winds wings

    They're in 'The Price of Power' very briefly.

    They look alright but they're executed pretty poorly in the series- Madame Razz and She-Ra beat them so easily. I always thought an army of them would like quite cool, but more the focus of a scary, more perillous episode. I guess they'd be cool in MOTUC.

    Yeah, they look quite awesome. Perhaps even a reuse/repaint of Vikor's helmet? Would you see them coming in a two-pack? If so, I'm just wondering about the cost... But they would be great armybuilders for sure!

    Looks like a potential good reuse of the Swiftwind mold. I say go for it!

    Those guys are not bad, but... I must say that compared to characters such as Batros, Mosquitor, Spikor, Tung Lashor or Two Bad, they look pretty plain and basic. Plus, they're a bit redundant due to Skeletor's skeleton warriors... I don't think I'd buy them, really. Also, their limbs (bones) are so thin that it would be a real challenge to give them the quality they deserve in action figure form.

    P.S. : the horses are quite cool... an interesting "evil variant" for the horse buck (Swiftwind), I think. Just add the bat wings, a different head sculpt, and it's fine.

    I'm going to disagree with you (for once):

    I think they were a huge part of the episode, regardless of screen time, and they presented as much of a threat as any other horde member did. They all did tend to be easily and violentlessly defeated by she-ra and co!

    Plus the fight takes place while the best she-ra music is playing in the background!

    To everyone posting that they haven't seen this episode, go watch it right now! It's one of the best episodes and these guys are cool axe twirling, flying horse riding army builders!

    @prahvus: they could share the trap-jaw legs and scare glow way of doing bones with new heads, I think these guys are easily translatable into motuc figures.

    Probably a $50 (single) horse/rider set. Not much point in having horses without riders or vice-versa, and $100 for two of each is a bit much.

    Reuse of SkW upper bodies would probably be half the point! (also, Horde Trooper legs & hands)

    I like them and the Riders could reuse Bows Armor, Vikors helmet and Marzos Loin cloth.

    The Horses simply look awesome, those should be made anyway, with or with out the riders, the horde could always need a way of transportation.

    Those are really cool! I'm sure they would look even better in the Classics style!
    I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!
