    Vikor The Barbarian: To Be Used In MOTUC?

    In Pixel Dan's review of the art book, he mentioned that Mattel was originally referring to He-Man as 'Vikor The Barbarian'. Well, Vikor is one of the trademarks that Mattel filed for at the end of December 2008.

    Any thoughts? Do you think there be a Vikor figure?

    Cool pick-up there Tallstar.

    I would say its a definite possibility. I could see Vikor being a bonus figure...or maybe a comic-con exclusive.

    If they have acquired the trademark in 2008 I think itīs quite possible.

    Might be cool if they did a version of some of He-man's earlier concept looks as Vikor and wove him into the story.

    Do you think it's possible they may try to somehow tie-in Vikor with She-Ra's backstory? Like maybe an ancestor or something married to a Valkyrie? Not at all sure if that would work. hehe

    I would be down with this. As long as he is in NO WAY related to He-Man or She-Ra, I would want him to be a stand-alone character. I think he would tie in well with guys like Fist, Ram-Man, etc.

    They've mentioned doing a Demo-Man figure at some point, so I wouldn't be surprised if we also see Vikor in plastic form. Maybe his bio will flesh him out to be the Savage He-Man that gets the "extra" armor included w/ the Green Goddess.
    Even better, it would be cool if Demo/Vikor was the very first 2 pack, "Concepts of MOTU" or some such like that.

    For some reason, I love all the prototype ideas, and would really love to own a Vikor.
    They HAVE to make him.

    I don't care about the official bios anyhow. I hate an imagination and create my own canon and backstory if I don't like it.

    I'd like Vikor a lot - even though he STINKS of the old Marvel comics Conan the Barbarian. Especially if his helmet can be worn by he-man and other characters!

    I'd be very excited to have a demo-man figure. His design is awesome. I get the impression Demo-man became beast man and skeletor though and that's how beast man was originally the main bad guy
    Looking for (MOTUC loose or MOC):
    High Priority: Panthor, Ninjor, Two Bad, Filmation Sorceress, Tung Lashor
    Low(er) Priority: Battle Lion, NA She-Ra, Flying Fists He-Man, Ultimate Faker, Ultimate He-man, Ultimate Skeletor

    Well, a Vikor and Demo-Man would be a great homage to the very beginning of the MOTU mythos, which was (at first) highly inspired by Conan indeed !

    If they can make those figures more than just variants/repaints, it would be VERY interesting !

    If there's a license for Vikor, I believe there will be a figure. We experienced the same thing with Wun-Dar, remember ? A license was discovered, and then shazam : a figure appeared.

    I'm all for this idea. I'm sure this is what they mean when they say "new" figures in the MOTUC line. A Vikor or Demo-Man? Seems like an obvious choice for con exclusive or subscriber bonus somewhere down the line.

    this was my thought as well.

    i bet a demo-man/vikor 2 pack would not be a crazy idea. i give it a 50/50 chance at actually happening. perhaps at the next sdcc??

    I would totally buy those figures if I was able to. I mean, with mattycollector.com you can never be too sure. And I would also prefer if the characters did not come with bios. I don't need them trying to "fit it in" to canon. Just say these were what were originally planned and I'd be good to go.
