Reading the vintage styleguide I noticed that He-Ro's full name is 'He-Ro of Grayskull'. Was is ever explained what 'Grayskull' actually is in the vintage line? Because there was no Castle Grayskull in Preternia - only the three towers, right? I would like to know why one of the towers name is 'Grayskull Tower'.
I vote for Eldor figure too. And make Gigantisaurus as well! If you do this huge thing I promise I will buy it - just for the sake of owning such a ridiculously big piece of plastic.
I'm really glad I was apparently very wrong about Gray being ret-conned out of existence; I'd love a figure of him in the line.
As for Grayskull, according to the last minicomic, the castle was indeed there in the time He-Man visited; it was minty and in it's prime, far from the more run down, ancient look we are used to.

So if it is ok to simply call the "Sword of He" the "Power Sword" should we just translate Trollan into English from now on and start referring to "He-Man" as "Power-Man" instead? Or what about "He-Ro", can we just call him "Power-Ro" now?
Great blog here. I really enjoy these a great deal.
In fact there is no clarifty in his sentence at all. He said exactly this...
So to break it down:The red stone of defense would let He-Ro shoot red blasts at enemies. This was produced more than the green, but less than the purple. The very rare and least produced purple stone of healing would cast healing spells.
Red more than Green, Red less than Purple, Purple the rarest. Huh??? What???
How can Purple be the rarest if there is less Red were produced? But wait, there is more Red produced than Green? So is Green the rarest then? But then he said Purple is the rarest and least produced? So which is it? Basically it could be any one of those three colors that is the most rare. He offers no clarity whatsoever.
And the guy wonders why fans get upset with him. He speaks in tongues for crying out.
So, It really wasn't clarified which stone is the rarest except for the sentence...
"The very rare and least produced purple stone of healing would cast healing spells."
sigh! We really need to get TG a tutor for free writing and proof reading.
Green. Red. Purple. Most common to least common.
My best guess on the issue.
This was interesting. Thanks. (no sarcasm)
I didn't own a vintage He-Ro. I don't own a He-Ro Classic. SDCC or otherwise. I want to own a He-ro Classic. do

Although we won't get actual numbers, I would love to know the percentage split amongst the three stones (i.e. green 50%, red 30%, purple 20% ???).
He-Ro was my first figure and was the character that sealed the deal on my MOTUC obsession. And up until then I didn't even really care for him. I though he looked awesome. I just wish he had a softer cape.
I know I'm in the minority, but I don't care for Eldor at all. Compared to all of the other characters we've seen in the MOTUverse that play a similar role he is very generic and boring. And I find it creepy to see such an old man with the same body as He-Man. He looks like a homeless Santa to me. If we end up getting Eldor, I would like to see changes made to give him something unique to his look.
Its only been a few months since I've heard about Gray and Eldor but it would be great to have them in the line here. Hunter Knight made an awesome looking custom Eldor and if he's ever done, it'd be great to have hime with a look similiar to HK. Perhaps Eldor or Gray will be more in the lines of the sub exclusive, idk how popular they are in the "want list" but it's be great to have them both.
NO DYLAMUG? WE DIAL A MOB!!
I think any character that appeared on a vintage card back, comic book, Filmation Cartoon, etc. should be made. And that goes for any vintage prototype or conceptual design from that era.
He called the green stone the "Stone of Protection." Is this just a coincidence or is it supposed to be the same stone that was merged with the cloned Sword of He to make the "Sword of Protection?"

Ah, thanks JonWes! It's a huge playset/vehicle, if it ever gets produced
However, Both She-ra AND He-ro's bios have come and gone with no mention... soooo probably not.
Such a missed opportunity
I love how he credits himself for coining the term "spell stones". Yeah, TG you thought of it first... ever do a Google search?
