    I kinda wonder if the TECH vest is somewhat like Adam's techno vest.

    The bio is disappointing. They make Sy-Klone a Gar, yet they fail to mention what the people of Eternia think of his presence among the heroic Masters.

    Are they outraged? Suspicious of him? Have Randor's approval ratings dropped because of this?
    Nothing.
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    Couldn't agree more.


    I like the fact that he's a Gar but the fact that he gets his powers from the vest is stupid. I still think his 200X origin is the best.


    The figure though looks fabulous!!

    Haven't processed the bio yet... It has some interesting aspects, but gbagok's is better.

    Maybe I should post videos of broken figures more often: BAM! New bio!

    Lol I know that's not why, but it's a a funny coincidence.

    He looks great in the package, but I'm not hugely excited because we has him as a vintage figure AND a 200X figure and he could spin. Even just a twist spin function (without the dial) would have been acceptable.

    I like the father reference. That's cool. It'd be cool to know more about him and maybe get a figure of him.

    I'm not a fan of the bio because I dont like the idea that Sy klone is the same race as Keldor, and I dont like the vest idea either, I like the idea of Sy-klone being a cybog or something like that.

    I was thinking he looked more like he-man, without the parted lips. Maybe once we have him in hand it will be more obvious.

    dy-lex... as in dial - ex? as in he used to have a dial to make him spin? Am I just over-thinking this?
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    I like the bio, nothing great but it is good they made him a Gar because it brings up so many potential stories.

    I am suprised there isn't already a "Dy-Lex in MOTUC" thread

    I don't know why, but I love that he's "combat ready"

    Cool! He looks great and I really like his bio!

    I like that he is a Gar (And don't ask me why, but I don't think I ever made the connection between Gar and Anwat Gar! I know. What a moron! Lol! ...so obvious...maybe it was just a lapse in memory?) Plus, he could still be simply a "Gar"-cyborg? He could be, you know? But I do really like the tech vest bit. I think it kinda brings him down to reality in one sense, making him more "human" I suppose. And I just like the fact that his skin tone is explained, period, and that it just makes sense that he is of the same race as Skeletor/Keldor. And I was actually a little taken back by the whole "terrorizing" bit! Lol! Not good 'ol Sy-Klone!

    I like Sy-Klone's bio! I would prefer him to be a cyborg, but that's still fine. However, I don't like the bit about the Gar's terrorizing Eternia. I'm not a fan of the whole "evil race" thing they're starting to go with.

    One thing they definitely got right was his eyebrows...these are the kinda brows He-man "should've" had in the classics line...

    The worst eyebrows I've ever seen on a He-man figure is from The Original re-issue...looks like He-man penciled them on himself!

    Wow! He looks AWESOME! I've never wanted to buy 2 to have one loose and one MOC.. but Sy-Klone may be my breaking point!!

    April is going to be a HUGE month for me.. i can't friggin' wait!!

    -----------

    I totally agree with you.. pre-posed just isn't "classic" imo..

    As the line progresses, the figures look better and better in-package than the first releases. I hate pre-posed. Sy-Klone is probably the best looking in package so far.

    Hmmm... I think that if it weren't for the fact that I actually had the vintage version, I would have no interest in this one at all. The 200x version was such a huge improvement to me. No big deal, though! It's freakin MOTU!!

    Same here mate, I'm a little surprised and disappointed they didn't use that name.

    Not keen on this bio. It was always going to be a tough one but now he's just a Gar with a 'power vest'. And he's got technical skill to upgrade his own armor?
    I hate this line "He wears the last remaining TECH vest Armor created by his Gar ancestros to terrorize Eternia alter the Great Wars."

    On a good point I am glad for the MYP bits.

    gbagok bio is way better!

    Gbagok certainly knows how to write bios, doesn't he?

    Not all of the Gar were bad. Illumina and Sy-Klone were good. So was Keldor originally. And the Queen Marlena is half-Gar--IF they use her MYP origin.

    It would be sad if they use 80% of Illumina or Marlena's bio to add more to the whole Gar plotline.

    One of my faves as a kid, he looks awesome!

    The bio is one of the better ones, not confusing and straight...

    Good work!

    I wonder how a tech-vest armor makes someone's torso spin around 360°.

    The figure is okay, but I'm still kinda disappointed since I hoped for a surprise like a new (or at least repainted) weapon. That huge red ring just doesn't work as a handheld weapon for me.
