Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

@  OverDrive73 : (26 March 2020 - 10:56 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:57 PM)

Too bad a new character titan class figure is pretty much an impossibility.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:56 PM)

I want a titan class, really good looking bucket wheel excavator. Like Cybertron Metroplex was supposed to be but didn't quite pull off.

Ugh, Chinese. Typo-city.

@  CORVUS : (22 March 2020 - 11:11 PM)

Rodimus, you're just flat-out wrong. Trump eliminated the Pandemic Response Team. Trump was advised in January that this could be serious, and he didn't listen. Trump spent weeks downplaying COVID-19 by implying it was a hoax, and then that it was just a type of flu. He was late to close down travel from China, and by the time he closed down air-travel to the EU, that was also too late. He has refused to take responsibility for removing the pandemic response team, even though he basically bragged about it some months before. He's also prematurely talked up treatments using chlorquinine that have not been properly vetted as yet, and he keeps calling COVID-19 the "Chinense virus" because he can't help but be a jerk. Face facts: Trump is an incompetent bungler. Period. Full-stop.

@  repowers : (22 March 2020 - 03:49 PM)

That's totally super biased!

@  Nevermore : (22 March 2020 - 03:00 PM)

I'm not. I'm listening to his own contradictory statements.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 March 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Most people don't, but it's still making enough ratings to continue, apparently.

@  Bass X0 : (22 March 2020 - 11:45 AM)

I’m not finding modern episodes of The Simpson’s at all funny.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (22 March 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Trump HAS been working on this, stop listening to those idiot "news" outlets that just spin everything against him out of bias.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 March 2020 - 08:52 AM)

At the least, they could keep it off of Twitter.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 March 2020 - 08:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure the capuchin from "outbreak" would have done a better job than trump.

@  Nevermore : (22 March 2020 - 05:13 AM)

Isn't it sad that President Schwarzenegger would have been the better alternative in retrospect?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 March 2020 - 03:38 AM)

It was President Schwarzenegger, not Wolfcastle.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 March 2020 - 02:51 AM)

He put that in a speech in Springfields 'Do as we say' festival in 2005 too.

I'm guessing a new Hordak would be gray. Everything makes him gray rather than blue.

Yeah, as far as I know, Hordak has only ever been blue at all in the Filmation show. Anything else including the original toy was always gray. Why they made him blue, I will never know for sure - Maybe so he would stand out from the dark Fright Zone backgrounds? I think the cyborg angle is mostly a Filmation idea, as well.

At a glance, because the She-Ra toyline was a dollction figure line of ladies with fairy wings and rooted hair and pegacorn mounts.

Did any of the Villains even feature in the She-Ra toy line? I could see a select few like Shadow Weaver or Catra, but even then from what I remember it was pretty much all the girl heroes plus Bow

He-Man.org's list seems to confirm that, that's what I "glanced" at before my last post. It also appears that Catra got a rooted-hair PoP doll while Shadow Weaver got a MotU action figure.

I figured Shadow Weaver would be pushing She-Ra's own line, but Catra was pretty much just a normal looking human character until wearing her mask. It's kind of sad that they had to separate the bad guys into the MOTU line just because of the "monsters wouldn't sell to girls" mentality.

I dunno, as with most things gender-role-related, I'm a little ambivalent from the position of having my cake and eating it. It's sad that boys couldn't have toys with rooted hair and girls couldn't have toys with firing missiles. Here in the present, I don't really like either of those gimmicks, but I do like both dolls and action figures, and a part of me has to respect how the She-Ra line repackaged the relatively novel form of 80s action figures back into a girls' toy, and how that shakes out in the packaging, sculpt aesthetic, etc.

Don't remember what DC did with him, but Google tells me it's this.

 

That picture of Hordac kind of makes him look a lot like Mummra from Thundercats after he transformed, its the build of the body that makes him look similar on top of what he wearing, clothes wise.

The only villains in the original She-ra line were Catra and Double Trouble. The other Horde figures were part of MotU. Shadow Weaver didn't have a figure originally and neither did Scorpa.

I figure that the other Horde figures were put in She-ra as production of She-ra ended production of He-Man. So they had to put the figures that were still coming out for MotU somewhere. Where better than the cartoon linked to it and with essentially no villain figures of its own.

You forgot Entrapta, she was also from the original line.  She did show up in a couple of episodes too.  Apparently she was pretty high ranked in the Horde, she was able to stand by Hordak next to his throne and not get looked down on by him like the other minions.

 

And yeah you are correct about why Horde villains showed up in She-Ra.  It is the same reason some of the Snake Men showed up as Horde members in She-Ra.  Mattel still wanted to advertise them.  Rattlor pretty much looked the same, but Tung Lashor looked wildly different then his final figure.

Yeah, as far as I recall, the initial concept for She-Ra had Catra as the main villain. Then, Mattel had them shuffle the Horde in there and Filmation made a few additions of their own. It's only a few years ago that some of the rights quagmire got cleaned up a bit and Mattel was able to start using some of the Filmation characters again. Or, as far as some toys are concerned, for the first time.

Ah, forgot about her.  But the long and short of it was, anything that was a female character from She-Ra was part of the She-Ra line.  Bow was the only male character part of the Princess of Power line, and all other male characters that had toys (which were just the villains) were part of MotU.

Adora's origins as a Horde captain certainly make for more a more interesting and complex foundation than He-Man had. DC did some good stuff with Despara too. I hope that element is retained for the new show.

I seem to recall the Horde figures coming out in MotU (speaking of which, this would have gone great in that thread; did we need a separate one?) before Princess of Power was released.

What I'd heard was that it was at Filmation's request that the Horde was integrated into the She-Ra cartoon.

G1 MLP had the same problem She-Ra would have had, if you can call it a problem - the cartoon needed villains and the toy line didn't, so the cartoon just had a lot of wacky villains not based on anything particularly to do with the toys.

Why they made him blue, I will never know for sure - Maybe so he would stand out from the dark Fright Zone backgrounds? I think the cyborg angle is mostly a Filmation idea, as well.

He was also blue in the newspaper strip... which was also made by Filmation, but still. :p

The Horde was actually developed for She-Ra.

Tung was based on a toy concept art:

On a side note, Rattlor was planned to appear on He-Man initially. Had that come to pass, he too would've been based on a toy concept art:

Nope.
 

The picture above makes me really hope they do something cool to Hordak's design. That high bone collar is just kinda dumb.
 
-ZacWilliam, he's always felt weirdly muddy as a design to me. Never liked him much. Nosferatu face, weird robot suggestions, weird collar, shape changing powers. I'm sure he could be great but It could use some reinvention to really gel I think.
 
If all of that gets changed, then he may as well be a completely brand new character.

I really think they could pick one or two of the themes they're hinting at and build that out properly, and that that would still be meaningfully a version of the character.
