    I don't remember Hurricane Hordak being highly requested or anticipated, it was just a huge let down honestly.

    True, but dont think Thunderpunch He-man will stay that long on the shelf . Maybe he would have sold quicker as a filmation repaint. Or started the mini comic with him. I would have spread out a month with 2 horde characters.

    I really like my Hurricane Hordak.

    However, I think he would have been much more popular had the QC been better... So I'm not surprised to see that he remains so long on Matty's website.

    I hope Mattel learns again how to vac-metallize properly. In the 80's they were able to do a proper vac-metal job on the figures. There's no reason why they shouldn't do it again.

    By the time Mattel understands that they must really improve the quality of their products and actually acts to do so (which didn't occur yet in several years of MOTUC figures releases), the figures won't stay as long on their website, and they will sell quicker.

    Seriously though I believe the fans who cried out for Hurricane Hordak are loud but not numerous.

    The worst variant imo. One of those figures that I knew I was skipping from the second he was revealed.

    this is it. people saw the dial & knew the vac-metal was a bad idea. the arm is just not enough reason to buy him

    I had no issues with The Dial, its on his back and I dont care about it!

    but the Vac metal set off alarm bells as soon as TG told us that the Cool gold paint Proto was getting Vac!

    Lets hope all he kills is the plans for mor Vac metal in future!

    I always wanted Entrapta done in Vac...But now I just want her painted!

    I just keep mine posed and don't really mess with the armor, so the vac metal is fine for me. But that stupid dial is an eyesore. All in all, I do like my HH and display him in a fierce battle with Battle Armor Skeletor.

    First figure I have kept in the package, with no plans on removing. (besides the tru 2 packs) honestly i wasn't too thrilled by him to begin with, i don't care about the dial, but to be quite honest, the new armor, and it being vac metalized was a let down when a repainted version of the original hordaks armor would have sufficed.

    His vac is crap. His dial is crap. His bio is crap. The lack of paint details is crap. I mean, he has no detailing on his boots and hood thing. They are just black when t hey should be gray. Hell, even gold would have been nice so that it would match his out of place gold body armor.
    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.
