    They could also be AFD 'jokes', because the internet really needs more fake news...

    Much of my personal anticipation these latest years is leaning towards mounts and vehicles;
    so let them produce Night Stalker, Battle Ram (which shouldn't cost much at this point) and the controversial
    Wind Raider repaint before we can finally enjoy the long-awaited modernized versions of Mantisaur, Spydor, Dragon Walker etc ...
    I'm going crazy with this annoying waiting game. It has gone long enough (this is the Motuc collector speaking!).

    In this case we could do with a German fan saying if there actually is some event going on, or if the usual sources are just parroting others who might be pranking. AFD is SO annoying because it feels like most people ignore it in this day and age but a handful still think it's somehow funny. With toys it's never funny because you always just want the toys!
    I think to make it funny you have to go for something deliberately ridiculous like Crackers Clown, Anti-Eternia Kowl or Battle Armor Orko. That's how they did it last time when they listed Spector (highly criticized toy) and Gwildor (let's face it, likely less popular vintage toy).

    Talking about Gwildor, I guess if when they release the 3 movie characters they will add more from the movie.

    I thnk Karg should be done to amend teh mistake that was not doing him on vintage years. I guess they will make also He-Man and Skeletor and maybe the Troppers,

    *Prototype He-Man, bare feet and with a horned helmet.
    No love for Bandwidth? I've wanted him for years! And the dial on his chest MUST turn!

    Kinda related sidenote: Since he's been mentioned a few times due to last year's AFD, and despite how polarizing his creator is, I'd be down for an Origins Mighty Spector.

    Bandwith!!! Yes, I love his radio gimmick.

    Ursis Prime/Red Beast would be cool too.

    Absolutely, though people will now want a Gwildor figure since nothing seems off limits and we seem to be going evergreen.

    Spector... the creator really doesn't need his ego inflated, I'd argue.

    If we ever get a "Mighty" Spector in Origins I'll eat my hat. I don't think the current MOTU team likes Scott and I doubt they'll do anything to "honor" him.

    Mattel should announce today, April 1st, that the Origins line is ending and Mighty Spector will be offered as the last figure in the line on Mattel Creations.

    Then they should also dump any dumb story lore ideas that came from him as well. (Sharella becoming Green Goddess; Etheria inside Despondos; etc)

    And Lodar, Fang Or again and Hawke come from a brazilian Telegram channel.

    Do they celebrate April's Fool on Germany and Brazil?

    BTW: Fang-Or will appear in Snake Face minicomic, Night Stalker appeared on Fisto's cardback and it's an easy repaint. Lodar trademark was renewed month ago by Mattel along Captain Glenn and Battle Chariot.

    Will they be legit or just a prank?

    Well if we were to do all those guys an Fangor and Bandwidth then we should get Gladiator too.
     
    And Spectormobile

    I would love to have Beast Lord, Gladiator, Bandwidth, and Red Shadow from the second Classics mini-comic, for a start. I'd like some Son of He-Man characters while we're at it.

    "Dumb" is a matter of taste. You may not like some of those ideas bur others might. They've already shown a departure from cCassic's lore with Wun-Dar's new back story.

    Toy Habits is reporting the Fang-Or Origins leak, so itís probably legit. Canít wait to get him! Need deeper cuts to keep things interesting.

    Also, apparently High Priest Pythonus *is* Nepthu, transformed after swearing allegiance to King Hiss.

    Was Nepthu the guy from the cartoon adaptation of Temple of Darkness? If he's a guy I can pass on getting.

    Turns out he is that guy and apparently so much more...

    I won't take this leak seriously; for now:
    a) Their linked sources weren't convincing enough for Fang-Or.
    b) The action figure looks more like a custom with its glossy paint job or (a painted prototype)!

    I'd say wait until this weekend is over.
    Creativity is addictive.
