I really hope that's just a fan-made custom/hoax. If you're going to do a Filmation Hordak, the least you could do is *try* to make the head cartoon-accurate.

Also, that Imp looks like total ass.

The only thing more pathetic than its execution is TG's excuse why it doesn't have a Filmation head.

Wheeljack. Its no were near filmation accurate and its called filmation Hordak. That is the problem with it from many fans. Myself included. The imp is pretty horrible sculpt wise too.

Luckily I never watched He-Man, nor any of the other shows associated with it.

So to me, I just see a neat toy. It's neat. I have no frame of reference towards how accurate it is.
I'm just gonna get a toy I think is cool.

This toy is the beginning of the end for me. I'm passing on it on principle. Voting it down with my wallet, as it were. I've wanted a Filmation Hordak since the line started, and I refuse to settle for this sad attempt.
And since this will be the first time I've broken my completionist streak with MOTUC, all of the sudden subbing in 2015 doesn't seem like such a priority anymore.

I'm done. After Scorpia, Madame Razz, and Light Hope, I'll pretty much have everything out of MOTUC that I wanted. Time to stop spending $40 a pop on figures that I don't want or ones that are horribly flawed, lazy, or pointless.

If Hordak was given a new Filmation-esqe head and armor, minus the staff... This would be a non issue for SO MANY people. Neitlich's premeditated dishonest responses to the inevitable backlash just adds fuel to the fire. I am still waiting for that one lunatic fan to go full auto on this douche.

A fan gives an impassioned plea of why we must believe Toyguru/Scott:

LOL! It amazes me of just how many Neitlickers there are in this world. Nobody in their right mind would believe anything that moron says. I love it, Neitlich tells fans that a Filmation Hordak head is possible and could be offered down the road AFTER the backlash as damage control... and fans still take the bait. After 6+ years, you'd think that most people would realize that Neitlich is Satan... but alas, the gullible are gonna be gullible. The fans creating threads about the excessive negativity and apologetic threads begging us to leave poor Scooter alone are almost as pathetic as Neitlich himself.

The saddest thing in that thread is the reminder that there are people out there who buy into Neitlich's B.S. and honestly believe that it's the fans who will be ultimately responsible for the failure of the line.

The notion that, in a free-market economy, a buyer-base can simply walk away from something they no longer find adequately desirable has never entered their minds.

That whole "you get what you get, and you don't throw a fit" only applies to thinks like presents, freebies, and supper. If you're spending ~$40 a figure (soon to go up), you're more than entitled to say, "wait a minute - I don't like this. It's not what I wanted. I'm not buying it."

The fact that there are people who want you to shut up, buy it, and keep buying just so the line will be complete are selfish morons and worse, contributing and enabling Neitlich to continue to make these bone-headed decisions.

If you can act with absolute impunity, why would you ever change your behaviour?

I don't want the line to end, per se, but I do want there to finally be some measure of consequence for Matty & Co. for yet another, in a long line this year, bad decision. I'm doing my part by voting with my wallet. I'm not enabling or rewarding Neitlich's positively stupid and out-of-touch design choices. If the line dies, oh well.

It won't be because of this fan or any collection of fans doing the same.

Exactly, I couldn't have gathered my thoughts well enough to say it better.

If there are still people out there that can't see Scott is full of sh*t after all of the crap he spewed to try to save face over this situation...those people aren't very smart.
