    Great review as usual Dan- I really liked the humor you injected into this one on top of that! Thanks for showing us the UK head on a Spector body as well!

    I adore the look of this figure. He just looks so impressive and imposing. The Kirby-esque helmet looks amazing to me. I am not in love with the fact that his cape just sits on him. I find this annoying no Faceless one too. It's an okay solution, but it limits him to just sort of standing there looking imposing because you can only raise his arms so high. It's okay to me.

    It's interesting that he's taller! I like that. I also like that he uses the abbed mid-section versus the flat version. Having both hands removable is awesome. I kind of miss the old crossbow design but this turned out well. I can see a red version of the crossbow being included in a weapons back for Hurricane Hordak.

    The cape doesn't look as great on the Spector buck as I had hoped with the UK head. The UK head is still fun. I might try to do something with that some day.

    I'd imagine you could get away with buying an extra cape from someone on the marketplace here and fixing it with an exacto Jon?

    I agree, that REALLY helped me decide if I should go ahead and make a UK comics perfect Horde Prime for anther display item from a Mighty Spector Body.

    Awesome review, Dan! I've been waiting for this ever since we first saw Horde Prime! I've ALWAYS loved Horde Prime!

    Love, love, LOVE his UK head! Still really excited Mattel was able to do the dual removable hands...and fix Roboto's shoulders! I think I preferred the simpler looking crossbow, but this one is still nice. I was skeptical about the abs when I first learned of this today in the Q&A answers, but I agree...it looks better. Too bad they made flat abs for the others, but I like this.

    I will have to give Hordak's staff to Horde Prime until we get the official one (if they get it in the line somehow). Can't wait for him! I must get two! Three if I can find him cheap somewhere.

    Also, Busta Toons purchased the Horde Prime background from Filmation earlier this year without the effects. Behold HORDE PRIME!



    LOL @ The Mighty Spector head on Horde Prime's body. I wonder if that was a joke by Scott because of everyone saying they will use TMS' body as a base for the UK Horde Prime? So he did the reverse!

    Wow, I love him. He's taller than Hordak, two interchangable hands, hidden Hordak cowl underneath the helmet, the Kirby-esque helmet, and another head yet to be seen. Hope they release that staff of his somehow.

    Excited for June.

    Really can't wait for this figured, loved the review, love the colors and how he stands next to Hordak too!

    I presume Filmation would have gone to do Wizard of Oz sort of thing, if they had ever got into revealing the secret of Horde Prime. I think statue like body and robot arms hint that way fairly strongly.

    Horde Prime, now I seriously want him. And funny your comic review pictures of Him are from Finnish version of Star Comics, Dan. I translate them for english.

    "Because RioBlast I was not able take control of this Planet......so I shall destroy it."
    "With Manga beams I am able direct meteorite hit to planet to destroy it. Also it will destroys also Rio Blast with it"
    "Horde Prime has spoken"

    How did I know they'd send it to you minus the head?
    He looks like a cool figure. Love that he's a bit taller than Hordak. He was a pass for me before seeing him in this video, but now I'm kind of reconsidering it. I thought he looked too plain before, but I think i t's growing on me. Can't wait to see the legit head on him though!

    nice review. i really want the staff though. odd that the staff gets cut to save money but then the crossbow gets redesigned with extra paint? not sure if the new crossbow is better; feels like a side step - but i do like that all the crossbows for the horde still have a face on it now (though this one kind of looks like the face was just stuck on top - need a better look at it though)

    i'm for sure getting a horde prime to kill - Hordak undertaking a coup/fratricide makes him so much more than just the head of the horde.

    WOW he sure is missing a lot of the deco from the proto!!
    It looks like an error or incomplete figure!

    UGH now I really have to go find some decent paints to fix this! Cos this is one figure that really needed that extra deco

    He's taller! Great Scott!
    Finally we got different sizes in MOTUC!
    This is one of my favorite review, Dan!
    For the prototype... without the painting the face looks amazin'! I can't wait to see the real face!

    Seems pointless to send the figure to Dan without the head.
    Looks cool though.
