Like I said in another thread; Mattel probably went with Vykron because the MOTU theme was initially suppose to include techno elements in it, so Vykron could be short for Viking and Tron... Just a thought.
Epic Metal music rules the universe.
ok, so if TG decided to change the name, why not mention that right off the bat? Why the coy disguises, no pun intended.
I totally understand the reasoning behind this figure, but I'm still not a big fan of it. There are just so many other figures out there that I think would have made for better exclusives, but that's just me.
It's edited to look that way to sell the movie.
MEOW @ the AFP comment oulala posted!

Wow, not a big fan of this figure. I expected a much better figure for the sdcc exclusive.

I think it's a perfect SDCC exclusive. If you are not a die hard fan, it's not a must have unlike all previous SDCC exclusive where we got must have characters like Marlena and Prince Adam.
Seriously though, I get what you're saying, but I think a lot of fans have kind of come to expect a really great figure from the SDCC exclusive because we've got one every year. While I totally appreciate the thought process behind making this the exclusive, it's just kind of weird that the anniversary year exclusive will be the one that the fanbase as a whole cares about the least.
I still do want Vikron as I am a die hard, I think he's a perfect exclusive given the 30th Anniversary and what the figure actually is.
ie. Exactly 30 years ago, one Roger Sweet made some concepts and as a result we have been entertained for 30 years. I don't think that is anything to be hateful or dissapointed about. Yeah, these concpets are not very well thought out unlike Mark Taylors but it's still a great talking point.
I often wondered the same but as far as I was aware, these 3 'He-Man' figures were presented in late 1979-1980, with figures going into production around 1981 and then launched in early 1982.
The toys really hit shelves in 1982 which I why I guess Mattel site that as the launch year. I do question if you really got a figure in 1981 or weather you are remembering it incorrectly.
I am pretty sure this is in the Power and Honor foundation catalog. Can someone confirm that? Emilainoooooo.......
uh, what? who? wth? why?
easy pass for me.. i can see major peg warmers or ebay warmers? seems like more variants
where the hell is lizard man? shokoti?

Yeah, it's funny... I always thought MOTU started in 1981 too. But I never questioned Matt-El when they announced that it would be 30 years in 2012, because I just figured I must have been wrong
Surely Matt-El couldn't have got that little detail WRONG???!! Surely?!

Hmmm, we need to investigate this 1982 thing further. As you guys do have a point!
