    Power-Con 2021 - September 11 & 12 - Anaheim, CA

    Are we sure it is a red Trooper? The image looks like it has gray/silver around part of the eyes. Could it just be that the red is part of the background effect for the reveal and the figure is really just a regular Trooper in the Origins style? I'd be down for that.

    (I'm not on social media and so might have missed something that has everyone convinced that it is, indeed, a red/crimson Trooper...whatever the heck that is.)

    I'm totally willing to believe that. Just wondering how we know it is, especially since it seems like no one knows what a red Horde Trooper is or where it might come from. Seriously honest question.

    Am I missing something? (Wouldn't be the first time..)

    I hope it's single carded too. It's the only figure teased so far that is a must have for me. I would gladly buy 2 Leo Fakers and skip everything else if it were single carded.

    Also, I really hope he has the left gripping hand so that he can hold both the staff and the sword.

    Its Horde themed characters and oh... Leo Faker. Kind of random, but he is cool.

    I hope the Horde theme increases the odds that Leo Faker is sold separate.

    As for other Horde figures, we know that a Deluxe Mosquitor is coming so maybe they could do the black blood Mosquitor variant. Slime Pit He-Man could be a possibility too.

    agreed 100% and also agreed on the hands. I'll be buying the max on that figure.

    Yeah I am also hoping the fact the others are horde related that it means faker is a solo release.

    Hey Val, can you either spill the beans, give us a hint, or tell us what countries with unique MOTU comics have the smallest presence?
    I believe the red Horde Trooper was only in this bootleg line from Japan

    At least that’s what I heard. It did even come with a mini-comic!

    It’s also very rare... so that would make sense being together with the Leo Faker

    That is a deep cut indeed. Never seen that one before in my life!

    I knew about the figure, but I had no clue it came with a minicomic. That might be what I read about.

    Do you know if there are any scans of said minicomic anywhere?

    As for Leo Faker, I cannot imagine it not being produced on his own card. It would just make more sense to do that, than to include him in a set with other figures (especially Horde characters)...

    IIRC the Leo Faker from that bootleg line was named Lord Faker and was now a Horde Robot. Neat way to legitimize a paint variant as a new character or a different look for one. So this is looking like a full Horde 4 pack for one exclusive. It would be awesome if maybe the bigger box item was a Teela and Charger 2 pack. Seeing them on back of the LOP Mer Man card plus Axel recently had a pic of his custom blonde Teela and Charger someone made for him. It seems they might be coming sometime soon. Third exclusive I have no idea but I’d go with mane a toy accurate Catra with fuzzy cloth goods parts. Looking forward to seeing the exclusives soon.

    Wow would you look at that. I had no idea! Well, I guess those that have been clamoring for a red horde trooper since 2008 finally have their day!

    Yes but I have seen it only in German:

    I always get confused if I saw something on He-Man.org or on Germany’s PlanetEternia.de

    Melkor23 packing a bag and going to hide out at a friends place til after the reveal.

    If that’s the case, and pushed back a week whenever someone asks we’ll already have them in hand and be waiting on Power Con 2022 reveals.
