    What I thought was interesting is not only is She-Ra in her Bubble Power armor in the majority of the issue, but when donning the armor, she also has the vintage/Classic Bubble Power Sword of Protection in hand.

    For those who think Photog's involvement in the mini-comic doesn't match his bio, I just don't think there cared to show the scene where he defeats Whiplash and Clawful. BTW, who said he killed those 2 characters anyways...?

    As for Evil-Lyn, there is so much more that we don't know until we get to the bios of next year. I'm sure we will learn how people like her, Gy-Gor, Marzo, Evil Seed, and Prahvas ended up siding with the Horde/Snake men. Heck, it seems like the Snake Men and Horde end up teaming up with each other. there really is a lot of story left to tell, and we haven't even will delved into the New Adventures Saga yet.

    I actually enjoyed that brief battle between Skeletor and Hordak. It's reminiscent to the Hordak/King Grayskull final battle. Skeletor "defeats" Hordak in battle, but Hordak is able to transform into his Buzz Saw version and nearly killed him. That's cool

    For those who have a problem with Skeletor healing himself with the techno virus, I kinda love it becasue you can see how his purple Terror Claws armor morphs perfectly into the NA armor.

    I read the minicomic last night. It was a MOTU feast. So cool to see so many characters together all in one place. I loved the transition in to NA.

    Does NA Skeletor have white eyes and eyeballs? or just empty sockets?


    EDIT: Also, what's the legal stance on people posting photos of the various pages? Anyone know?

    I'm so glad Skeletor looks like he does instead of the NA cartoon. IMO him having eyeballs is ridiculous.

    So is Gwildor the only vintage MOTU figure not in the mini?

    Empty sockets, the way it is SUPPOSED to be!
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I think this was a really elegant way to combine the stories in a way that keeps the essential elements but expands it to include more storytelling possibilities. Best of all, it makes sense to me. It explains why N/A Skeletor looks different. It's a little random that Skeletor decides to give up on Eternia, but if you consider it a strategic retreat to gain new forces to combat He-Man, it seems plausible. I completely dug this issue.

    I like this mini the best - less yakking, more action. But I still get the impression when reading it that there are big sections of story missing. The flow just seems off.

    I do have to ask: Does Terror Claws Skeletor come with that bad-ass gun he's using in the battle scenes? Because I WANT that!
    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!

    I couldn't find Multi-bot

    I really enjoyed the comic though. I'm still not sure how I feel about MAA's iffy death as a snake, but I enjoyed everything else. I was pleased to see Hydron and Flipshot at the end.

    And Entrapta looked awesome! I hope this is how her figure will look! IF and WHEN and all that jazz...

    Great story with epic battle panels! Really wishing we could get more mini comics like this. The stories paced very quickly and the art was solid throughout.

    I didn't see Rokkon, Mulit-bot, or Gwildor from the vintage motu toyline...everyone else seems to be present save for some of the POP crew--Angella, Madam Razz, Spinerella...etc

    I don't see the Horde Robot either...but it is VERY impressive to work so many characters into so few panels!!!

    What is this TC Skeltor gun that keeps coming? Is it the dinosaur bone thing he carried on his back?

    after all skeletor was ruler for a very brief time & now he has stolen some or all of hordaks power so he has much larger ambitions now.

    I don't like THAT....

    That's one of the reasons I hate the whole 'keldor' concept. Ruling the 'throne' was never Skeletor's goal... it was ALWAYS about GRAYSKULL... Leaving the planet means giving up on the Secrets of Castle Grayskull... and that's not a direction I like.

    That's not fair to lay at the door of the Keldor concept. He was shown to want the power of the elders in MYP, which was the power of Grayskull and ended up in the Castle. Randor was a side issue for him. Yeah the show forgot the Universe aspect and only focused on Eternia as the prize, but his focus on that power source was still there. Filmation wasn't always so focused however, there were episodes where Skeletor wanted Randor's throne in Eternos (Creatures of the Tar Swamp comes to mind). And NA lost the Grayskull focus, but never brought up Keldor. My impression here is not that leaving the planet means giving up on the Secrets of Castle Grayskull, but that he needs new forces to fight the heroes to get at Grayskull.

    This comic made sure that the secret identities are not necessary anymore and Skeletor doesnīt care who his siblings are, he wants power. But what he calls cure, is still a virus and that could effect his thinking as well.
    Plus he never had that much power before and itīs nice that Eternia seems to be in peace now but the Horde empire is till out there terrorizing the rest of the universe. Horde Prime is still powerful and i donīt think Primus is the only place where help is needed.

    Grayskull has new protectors(Teela, Castle Grayskull Man, Clamp Champ, Orko...), we still donīt know whatīs going on on Etheria, we donīt know who is leaving for space and maybe a long the way we find other allies like Bravestar or Blackstar. Who knows?

    This comic brings up so many possibilities. It didnīt answer all the questions or showed everything but i think it was a great start.

    And just as a side note, i really like this thread itīs all about MOTU fans talking sharing things, normal discussions, i think thatīs a real positive thread

    TC Skeletor didn't come with a gun, but he had this hinged dragon skull thing. It made a really cool chomping motion when you did his action feature. I can see how that accessory could be interpreted as a gun, but it makes more sense as what it was.

    Can someone please describe Miro's appearance?

    As a fan of NA, I am very happy with the changes. I always felt that the toon version of NA was too disconnected - which played a major part in why many fans reject it. Though the mini comics and the UK mini series do a better job of tying NA more into MOTU, they just didn't have the widespread influence that the cartoon had.

    So, making the NA story take place in the present time: GOOD MOVE
    Having She-Ra and a band of allies go with He-Man: GOOD MOVE
    Changing how Skeletor becomes NA: At least there is an explanation - which is influenced by the original NA mini comic origin (instead of He-Man causing the damage, it's Hordak. And using the techno virus is just a more detailed way to show how Skeletor repairs himself - the original NA mini comic doesn't really get that involved.)

    I hope we're going to see more NA in the story, and then SOHM. I want to know what happens next.

    As for the N/A continuation story wouldn't several members of the masters need to stay on Eternia to keep peace? On Etheria order needs to be restored & the last of the Horde driven out.
    Keep in mind that there are many characters that have "yet to be revealed", as well as armies that would help out Angella, Perfuma and Spinnerella. The armies of Bright Moon, Mystacor and The Snow Kingdom surely are helping in the fight. And don't forget about Josh, Red Knight, Huntara, Madame Razz, the Twiggets, General Sunder and others who are helping Angella in the fight.

    The same goes for Eternia - not ALL the Masters and Great Rebellion go with He-Man and She-Ra to Primus - perhaps only a handful (4-8) from each heroic faction (definitely makes for some cool potential variants). And there are armies and "characters not revealed" that are helping Randor and company clean up after the Ultimate Battleground.

    AWESOME! Overall I thought that was a heck of a cool comic; kinda rushed, but most of the minicomics were, back in the day. I could see lots of cool scenes if they had the space to elaborate. As it is I think they did a fantastic job, and I barely have to change anything for it to line up with my personal story that I've been messing with since the begining of the line. The whole time I wanted NA to happen in the same time period, and I thought the techno-organic virus would be PERFECT for changing Skeletor - SO glad they took advantage of that! On top of that, it retains how friggin' awesome Skeletor is. That was always my favorite part of the NA minicomic: Skeletor ripping into himself to repair his body with cybernetics. It's not as crazy here as with performing surgery on himself, but it totally doesn't matter because Skeletor bascially sucks the power out of Hordak, uses a horrible virus to his own benefit, and flies off into space to take over the universe. That is sheer friggin' brilliance. As a Skeletor fan, nothin' makes me happier and seeing him grab all the power and become strong enough to just leave the planet with little effort. AWESOME, again.

    Overall I felt this comic was a lot of fun, though it's kinda sad that once again another He-Man toyline is faltering around the time when they would be getting into NA. Hopefully we'll pick up some more steam in time to get in a few of my NA favorites!
