    I must say that the Great Black Wizard and Fang-or are two new figures that I like. I'm not against new figures, as long as they look awesome and have a great design. The Great Black Wizard and Fang-or enter that category.

    Obviously, we first need to finish the vintage characters, but I'm all for the Great Black Wizard and Fang-or just after that.

    So him and the other art revealed of new characters, make these. And make them part of the "Son of Heman" franchise growth expansion they should be doing. Finally let the adventure continue, let continuity grow. Make a new 'toon and toyline based on this, or keep MOTUC rolling and roll it into SoH.

    I'd love this. And Great Black Wizard is just a tops design. Still.

    Even though it is now a little redundant that we have many skull headed characters I still think he is ultra cool & deserves a figure.
    this line however need more wizards.

    You're right he's so similar to the Chaos Sorcerer from Hero Quest and the interestin' things are the weapons... the sword is the Filmation Skeletor Sword and the staff... I think it's from Filmation too!
    i want him. but the thing i do not like is that he has a skull, as skeletor already sports the iconic skull, in which was burned off from acid, so what's this dudes reason why he has a skull? other than that i love this figure you posted except that it comes off as skeletor in a different outfit.

    I really like this guys design, in fact he's the only one of these new Mattel characters I do like, but he's so similar to Skeletor I can't help think he takes something away from him. They'd need to explain his origin and why he has a skull head in way that doesn't take anything away from Skeletor IMO and a good writer will be able to do this, maybe even link it to she shaping staff seeing as he's pictured with it in his design sketch.

    The answer is simple: Black Magic!

    I got no problem with another Skull faced character, Skeletor, Scareglow and The Great Black Wizard... the fearsome trio!

    I'm speculating about the disfigurement as he came through the portal since in that one image, we do not see the faces of the beings from Skeletor's dimension. But the fact that another writer used that theme it in the mythos only helps solidify the idea for me. Although, after seeing Skeletor's yellow human face, the disfigurement may have been an upgrade.

    I like the design a lot, but he is too similar concept and look to Skeletor. Skeletor would basicly look identical, if he would have the the same outfit. Both being magic users doesn't really help either.

    His major problem is that he looks like a variant of Skeletor, instead of a unique character.

    Yes, from NYCC. Toyark posted a photo in their Mattel panel coverage. http://news.toyark.com/2013/10/11/mo...cc-2013-105542

    I am NOT a fan of these colors at all. They are too close to Skeletor and there are too many colors overall. So here's my quick take on the Great Black Wizard's colors.



    I see him more as a "savage shaman" so while he still has the purple, the rest of the colors are dark and earthy. I imagine his "Wizard" type of magic is very different from Skeletor's so I turned the ball between his horns into a "black pearl." Perhaps the black pearl is where he draws his power from and is the reason for his name.

    If we only get one of these new characters in MOTUC, I hope it's him.

    In this picture itīs clearly to be seen that he is made out of:

    Batros feet
    "Blast Attacks" legs- Stinkor came before Meckaneck, Netossa has Peekablues outfit and Peekablue isnīt scheduled up so far.
    Demo-Mans loincloth
    Nepthus biceps
    King Grayskulls cape

    Rest is basic buck or new parts.

    Interesting.

    It's Vikor's loincloth and possibly Vikor's right bicep and a new matching left bicep. But yes, when Axel Gimenez designed him, he was definitely keeping parts reuse in mind.

    You are right thatīs Vikor (i meant Vikor but wrote Demo-Man...)but they biceps do look like Nepthus.

    I knew he had part reuse in mind but this picture is showing it even more. At least to me

    I still hope we get this guy sometime! Kinda off that his colors match Skeletor's...but on the other hand, it gets my imagination runnin'. Why does he look like that? Is he somehow connected to Skeletor? Maybe when Skeletor becomes depowered (loses his staff to King Hsss) he also becomes parted with Demo Man? Maybe Demo Man merges with someone else?

    Questions questions! Ones I'm having a great time answering in various ways.

    You're completely right! That's too Skeletor with another outfit!
