      I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed that!

    They're a little offputting, but nothing that ruins the figure for me, and the rest of him more than makes up for it.

    I noticed that Dan didn't give the names to either the Book of Living Spells or the Staff of the Ancients. Kind of surprised by that; after all, the Book of Living Spells is part of the figure's appellation!

    On that note, I just noticed how Eldor's title--"Heroic Guardian of the Book of Living Spells"--parallels that of the Sorceress figure--"Heroic Guardian of Castle Grayskull." More evidence that the Book is the original source of Grayskull's power in some form.

    (IMC, the Book gives the Power form and motif--"magic"--while He-Ro gives it direction and purpose--"heart". The raw power--"strength"? That comes from the Gray Skull .... )

      That's a good point, according to Eldor's card back it was going to be pretty damn important. (link for those who don't recall)

      Though, given the card front, the orb of green/white light, that MUST have have some relation to the "magic crystal" within He-Ro's opening staff, which I still believe (though have no evidence to support) the idea that was going to be the origin of the "Orb of wisdom/Power". Given what we know of Castle Grayskull's origin, it seams like a simple elegant solution. Eldor had the Living Spell, and He-Ro the "magic crystal" vessel to contain The Counsel's combined power/knowledge, thus The Powers of Grayskull!

      Not to mention the style guide's statement in He-Ro's bio that "He-Ro derives his power from the Book of Transformation", which seems to be an early name for the Book of Living Spells, which contain the Secrets of Transformation.

      Yeah. Grayskull became Gray and He-Ro, Mentor became Eldor, so that stands to reason that The Book of Transformation, became the Book of Living Spells. I would bet that was Marketing Department's contribution.

      Begs the question, what got changed in He-Ro's 1987 cardback?

    I think he turned out looking awesome, although he still suffers from that dreaded puffy armor/tunic syndrome. As for the review itself, very straight forward and redundant!

      I wish Eldor had at least one open hand for the book to hold but aside from that I'm quite satisfied with how he turned out.

        Yes! He should've had an open spell casting hand.

        I will probably swap hands with Marzo.

      I think he looks pretty good. I won't cast judgement on the lips until I have him in hand.

        I'm over the lip thing, but the lack of hologram or even some text, or a pic inside the Book of Living Spells is still very irksome...Oh well.
