Mattel’s MOTUC Vikor
December 12, 2010

 

Manufacturer: Mattel

Release Date: Jan 2011 (Club Eternia Figure)

Wave/Assortment:  MattyCollector.com Figure Exclusive

Packaging: Single boxed

Accessories:

  • Battle Axe
  • Shield 
  • Sword
  • Removable Cape

Scale: 6"

Sculpted By: The Four Horsemen

Notes: Has real metal chains on the shackles.  This character was based on the original concept sketch for He-Man.  Originally supposed to be the February Club Eternia figure.

It was originally planned that Vikor would come with half of a blue power sword (as seen at SDCC 10) but that was cut during production due to cost.   The word from Mattel is"  We wanted to include a half power sword in the same color as the full blue sword from Weapons Pak 1, but by the time we tried to add this it was too late and the costs were locked in.

The Blue Sword from the Pak is still intended for him, and we’ll try to find a way to do the half blue sword one day in the future. But alas it won’t come with Vikor."

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
