    Awesome. Looks great. I'm gonna be receiving 3 of these dudes! Hmm, maybe I'll make them Light Hope's elite guards, rather than the great Light himself. Damn, I hope that cape glows in the dark!

      The staff looks as if it's gitd blue too. Not sure I like this figure as lighthope... This would be better as the UNO IMO

        I really love the details on the front and the back of the armor. His skin (especially the shoulders) also reminds me a little of the toy version of Crystal Castle. This is a fantastic figure!

            ...I'm looking at the face and beard and thinking "Count Marzo becomes Light Hope...?" I really like him, though, don't get me wrong!

              I love all of the creativity that went into this figure's design. The Four Horsemen knocked this one out of the park!

                Wow, this figure totally rocks! Too bad I won't be able to get him without paying the secondary market prices!

                  It is a beautiful figure. I'm normally not a fan of translucent plastic (call them holograms, or ghosts, or cheap no paint pieces, whatever you will), but this concept is quite lovely. Sadly, as he and Madam Razz are the only things I wanted from the POP sub line (and I refuse to sub from Mattel) I'll forgo this figure.

                  I'd be curious to know just how much input Scutt had on this figure, because there's no way something this awesome hatched from his cranial egg. I'm thinking the 4H had more control over this release than anyone. Their signature emphasis on armor detailing makes it very modern, far from the simplistic Filmation designs.

                  Any information out there on where the concept originated from?

                    Can't wait to see how they screw up Light Hope. Probably too late to botch the figure, so likely what will happen is that subscribers won't get him just like what happened with Fisto.

                      I believe that the idea started with fans in a poll posted at He-Man.org in 2009. Many who wanted a figure said that he should be made of translucent plastic. I think the Four Horsemen listened to the fans ideas, and made something that they knew the fans would like.

                      I also think that Emiliano's artwork for Lord Brion of the Council of Wisdom (2005) may have helped inspire Light Hope's design:

                        That fig is pretty cool! I guess the white is greenish, cause of bad enhanced photos?

                          This is one of the ONLY reasons I subbed for Club Etheria. I knew I would be able to get Double Trouble and Entrapta on the secondary markets for cost. I don't know how Sweet Bee will turn out, I do like and have Buzz Off - so maybe I can pair them up for display.

                          I will be selling Madame Razz and the Broom - or giving it to my sister if she wants it as she grew up with She-Ra.

                          So far so good with the pics and armor detail. I can't wait to see the first person who makes a Movie God Skeletor with his accessories.

                            Looking pretty good! I won't be having this figure as part of my collection, but it really is a great piece.

                                  Awesome. This figure is the reason I got the mini-sub (and that my good buddy Stevan on these forums said he'd buy my unwanted figures like Razz & Broom, etc.), so glad design didn't mess it up.
