  • Single Carded Horde Trooper

    Apparently the Horde Trooper figure is coming back as a single. Hope they make it somehow different from the existing release, otherwise an easy pass as I already have 6 of them.

    I would think it would come with at least one new weapon.

      Good to know, I have two sets only (Four Troopers), and I'd like to have at least another four. So how are they gonna release him and when?

        i have 8 of them so unless they come with an extra invasion head from secret of the sword, it will be an easy pass.

          A Filmation accurate Hordak head would also be a nice touch

          I think they are gonna hit us with that 'Filmation' Hordak 2.0 for that head... SMH....

        Cool! I would like to get two more.

        Depending on what, if any, extra accessories that weren't with the two pack versions, I may want more.

                I missed out on the 2-pack so I'll be racking up on these if possible. Hopefully I can get to them before they all sell out. I've been watching the prices on them since the announcement online and they haven't seemed to have dropped. I thought the 2-pack might drop in price so I could pick some up but no luck yet. If the single carded figure is different I will still have to buy the expensive 2-pack in order to complete my collection.

                  With the three bonus heads that were recently on display with the General, I think its safe to assume that we will be getting a Horde Trooper on a single card.

                    Hopefully those heads actually come with the Horde Trooper rather than General Sundar. What other incentive would people who already have multiple HT have to pick up a single carded one?

                      exactly and for argument's sake, let's pretend someone decides to buy 4 troopers & 4 sunders to have 4 aqua troopers. what are you going to do with the 4 extra sunder bodies? make troopers that look exactly like a general? that doesn't makes sense.

                      these new guys are making bad decisions that are costing the company money.

                        The ''generals'' could be used as Horde Prime's ''Elite Bodyguard Troopers''

                      We don't know how big their quotas are on the single carded Horde Trooper to make that assumption yet, despite all the complaints since the sellout date!... Are they trying to push GS on the masses fearing that he won't sell as fast knowing that they need to cover their production cost on him? Hard to tell really...

                      Maybe their moto still is: Better be safe than sorry!

                        I can see a few cool uses for those extra General bucks. This custom is a good example of what can be done. I would probably put a Hordak head on one. Horde Prime and Keldor would also look cool with this buck. It would certainly work well for non-helmeted heads. Not every officer needs to wear a helmet.

                          ok, but then you would have 4 aqua horde troopers & 4 generals? that is the weirdest army ever.:liono:

                            I still can't believe they didn't issue a re-release of Horde Troopers. That was the most passionate I have been about any Mattel operation throughout my He-Man Classics "career".

                              Blame the excess of Palace Guards and Mattel's lack of initiative to move those sets... (A Head and Weapons Pack would have helped sell more guards)
                              But Horde Troopers would have been like Printing Money for Mattel. Had they made more and turned them into evergreen items I would have bought a few sets per year.

                            Now with General Sundar out, with all the cool extra heads, I hope Super7 gets on producing Horde Troopers on single cards. That is money in the bank.

                              And if they want more "money in the bank", they could easily add more new heads, and probably even make him a periodical evergreen figure!

                                Make him in a variety of colour schemes with different heads too...

                                So someone from the Org claims that he has contacted Mattel asking about the single carded Horde Trooper and the Roton, and this what he was told:

                                Mattel

                                Hi Michael! These will be available at Mattycollector.com in November. Thank you!
                                Finally, this would be really great if it's actually true!

                                    It would be nice to know if Mattel is still going to release this figure before the line goes to Super7.

                                          I like the DC comics Trooper guns. The colors work well with the troopers.
