Another cool read, after seeing the eldor cardback again shows how powerful and important of a character he really is with the book of living spells. Being able to have access to secerts of past present and future events.
Id be pretty happy with a Gray figure, he isnt too exciting but still a piece of history never seen the light of day in plastic form, he could even come with the He-Ro alternate staff so fans can display He-Ro with the artwork staff.

Fire bad. Fire burn toys!
So if "He" means power in Trollan, isn't it a bit redundant to call the sword as "the Power Sword of He" like it's called in at least Battle Cat's and Eternia Map's bios.

Recently picked up a He-Ro figure, got the purple stone and I actually like it best. One thing I don't like about him is that the cape is ultra-stiff. I do wish we'd seen it made of a more rubbery plastic like the cape eventually used on say, Carnivus or BG Evil-Lyn, but I'm still happy that there is a He-Ro figure to be had. I wouldn't be shocked to see Eldor pop up as the sub-exclusive character for next year.
I'm happy to see Toyguru found some time to write his blog... What about addressing the pressing and multiple issues about the line, the subs, the shipping, the QC etc. !?
I may not always agree with the decisions he makes but I like that he shares his thinking in these posts.
BTW, as far as Preternia priorities...I personally put Eldor before Gray.

"but honestly, it felt repetitive to have multiple ancestor figures."
Yes, as we all know, people only have one ancestor.
I enjoy reading these - and this one was particularly interesting when Toyguru mentioned the links and similarities between the vintage line and MOTUC. The input he has from Tim Kilpin is very cool - the Snakemen and concept characters of POG and Star Sisters. I hope he will reveal more of the behind-the-scenes of the end of the vintage line in some of his next posts. It was great to read this He-Ro Directors comments together with the Star Sisters articles that were posted here on .org in March. Interesting stuff.
The only thing I am missing is Toyguru's comment on the 'H' versus 'G' on He-Ro's chest armor.
A thorough read. And... *'em* *Turbodactyl* *vice* *conning* *less* *more* *canon* *Wun-Dar* *alone*.
Nice read, looking back at it I can't believe we got HR so early! But I'm really glad we did, bring on Eldor I say, he's well over due
Nice to hear they still have plans to incorporate the 'Gray' name some how (hopefully as an alter-ego) as IMO it's much better then 'Ro', plus it's his original real name.

I want Eldor so bad. I hope he comes soon!
Please watch my videos!
When I first saw He-ro I tought it would be only a joke! I remember when they announced it I hated his hair style and his smile!
But after hear some stories about the caracter and the toy I started seeing different the figure!
I bought it and I really like the caracter today and his storie!
I really prefer King Grayskull as He-man ancestor, in my opinion it fits better because his visual is like he-man, a barbarian, because the name, because the castle, but He-ro is a part of the toy storie of Masters of the universe, and what toy guru did linking He-ro to the power Sword I think is perfect!!
Sounds like Eldor might be our 2012 SDCC exclusive. The hints are kinda "there" I guess?
(sorry, wishful thinking Im probably WAY off)
GOAT MAN for MOTUC IN 2013... please... c'mon... pretty please?
Really enjoy reading TG blogs. Maybe a thread should be made here on the .org just for TG blog entries?
Kinda weird how He-Ro is the concept figure i've warmed up too the most. Granted the others look good or whatever, but there just seems to be a 'connection'.
