I don't like the real names... Too much focus on naming them after Mattel staff, rather than using actual brain power to come up with a "cool" set of names for these guys.

I don't even bother paying attention to the bios. Hordak is still Hordak, not Hec-to-kur or whatever the name was.

I'm not too sure but I do know they are variations of some Mattel employees names.

Yeah, basically the price for 3 figures. I think 3 packs should have stayed in the $60 range. Good thing I actually kinda like these figures otherwise I would pass on them.

Chopper was Jitsu's original name so they ran with that.

Well, I think it's Neitlich that comes up with all these stupid-ass names. He can't write a bio to save his life so the same would hold true with giving these characters aliases. It's one thing to come up with a lame name off the top of your head, but to constantly, "give props" to people involved with the line like 4H and DC comic writers and artist, etc... It's just too much ass-kissing.
