Vikor!!!

Hail fellow Cromites! I'm slowly getting back into the swing of blogging again and I wanted to take this time to hip you all to an upcoming release from Mattycollector in their Masters of the Universe Classics line of a character called "Vikor", who is the spitting image of a certain barbarian we all know and love.

Vikor is based on a original concept sketch from back in 1981 when Masters of the Universe was still being developed and was highly influenced by the Conan image and mythos. (And don't you all start that "He-man was supposed to be Conan" shit again. It's been dis-proven a thousand times over.)

But looking at Vikor, we can clearly see the influence.

Check out the figure... (click the images to make them barbarian sized)



And here's the original '81 sketch the figure is based on...

Pretty rad, eh? You can bet your Hyrkanian ponies that I'll be buying one of these figures and displaying it proudly along with my other Conan swag. Vikor is scheduled to go on sale in December (I think, I'm too lazy to check).

The only thing he's missing is the blue eyes. Other than that, he looks exactly like Conan!
