I would hardly call Hordak a cowardly anything.
Regarding the whole retired 200X style, why are they putting such strict restrictions on this line? Rather than flat out re-interpret the vintage line, shouldn't they create a new line based on all the good stuff from ALL of the lines? For me “Classics” should be about creating the ultimate MOTU line. I don’t doubt that this is the officially chosen direction at “Mattel”, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not a stoopid call. And I’m not convinced about who the decision originated from.
