  • Lords of Power by FORMO Toys

    https://www.formotoys.com/lordsofpower

    Look what Emiliano has been up to….
    We’ve got a new line coming that can fit in with our vintage figures and maybe even the Origins line (with less articulation of course).
    I really like the look of the Guerrero inspired figure. I just hope they are making the heads easy to pop off and the neck pegs as similar to the Origins figures as possible. I’m not digging the animal head on the one female, so the option customizing from either an Origins figure, or a MOTWWEU would be a huge bonus to this line.
    I hope it succeeds. Unless it’s crazy expensive, I’m going to try my best to support this line right out of the gate.

    Hopefully what Val said regarding Emiliano on that Fans of Power podcast is actually true, and Val’s pettiness doesn’t come in to play. I’d hate to see any references to this new line automatically get scrubbed from the .org….

    How long before Neitlich makes a video burying this line and the people who are working on it? His jealousy must already be kicking into overdrive, lol.

    These figures are amazing, and they look like they will blend in well with the 1981-87 vintage line. I will be buying these, for sure!

      These are kind of impressive! I would love to see the genie guy in translucent blue like astral projection Jaga.

        I really like the "Keldor" figure. I will be displaying my He-Ro and Eldor figures with these figures. I really hope this line does well. Plenty of potential!

          That Guerrero figure is awesome! I'm curious too as to how much interchangeability there is

          I noticed that the bad girl is basically Panthor and the good girl has Battle Cat's helmet

          I thought I saw them talking about it too but I didn't know Emil was tied to it until you pointing it out.

            this line scares me.

            Early He-Man prototype going up against a rip off of a villain from the Warlord line

            Green webstor with snakeman armer.

            The lady with the Battle Cat head armor piece looks like when you give a 5 yr old a full sized football helmet.

            The geenie. Meh. Makes me think of the geenie from pee-wee's playhouse.

            Last but least the creepy furry. Aka Panthor lady.

            would I buy any of those? No.

              I don't really get the purple cat head. I'm kind of hoping that is a mask the figure wears. I do like the Genie... it is going to be translucent blue. The green Webstor was an original design from the 80s, so I dig it.

            I see over at that other site Emiliano is actually posting, responding to questions. That’s great to see ( although it would be nice if he didn’t completely abandon us over here…)
            Also, the green guy seems to be an old Mark Taylor design finally being realized in action figure form. That is awesome.
            Looks like the villain is holding a Havoc staff based on the movie design.
            I’m looking forward to seeing more pics, especially the Sharella inspired female without the dorky, oversized Battle Cat helmet.
            There’s one teaser photo on their twitter account showing what looks to be an armoured up seventh character.

              There is a pack in with each figure (like a build a figure) that makes that 7th figure

          • #8
            I love the Jack Kirbyness of the 7th figure in the back.
            Also nice to see the Sharella figure without the Great Gazoo helmet on….

                Something to the effect that they are cordial to each other and there’s been some conversations. Certainly not best buds, but not bitter enemies either.

                I too was curious about this so I wenta' searching. The best I can come up with is it's from one of the creators on instagram. A sneak peak so to speak

                Probably best to let sleeping dogs lie but the gist of it is a certain former brand manager caused alot of tension in the community and Emil stepped away from the org for a while

                      I wish this line well, and hope it continues beyond the first wave. I'd love to see some playsets get released.

                        Thanks for posting those pics Andy.
                        I’ve always enjoyed seeing the original sketches.
                        I like how Formo Toys did some legally necessary tweaks, like changing the Havoc staff to a movie inspired version, as well as the altering of Skeletor’s skirt on the final figure.


                        Unless I’m constantly missing it, have they revealed the character names of all the wave 1 figures yet?

                          No problem croc but I can't take credit for them. bigfootRULES on that other forum deserves the credit.

                          I also see people throwing around names but I havent been able to gather all the info just yet. I will try my best though when I get time and will update as I can

                      • #18
                        WOW! Looks like I missed out on some things some how. A 7th figure? It's a build a figure? Already a possible 2nd wave/series?

                                  I agree. They could be placeholders for the moment.

                                Lords of Power & Derlok are TM'd on their website but Barbaro doesn't seem to have one, so who knows what or if things could change.

                                Derlok is an anagram for Keldor I'm guessing plus he's described as an evil warlock type character so it's going to get a pass.

                                Zarella seems to be a play on the source name Sharella and at least sounds good to me paired with the name Barbaro.

                                The Adversary used to be named Quan-chi but they changed it. I don't know why or if they are facing certain legal restrictions.
                                ​​​​Ka-rem is a weird name and I could see folks pronouncing it sounding like Karen. I would suggest something more like Ku-Zaam or D-Jinnji.

                                Pantera, a certain heavy metal band is either going to love it or destroy it. ​​​​

                                  Thanks for the insight BZ. I had considered that this is a small line yet the ball seems to be rolling.

                                  Names and things could change but we know Derlok and Lord's of Power at least wont

                                  Pantera is actulaly Italian for Panther, and I'm not sure how the trademark laws can apply when the name is a common noun for a creature in a different language!

                                  As for Ka-Rem, I'm only guessing here it's another variation of Kareem/Karim which is Arabic for "generous"... Kareem Abdul Jabbar is probably one of the most famous people holding that name in the west.

                                  I'm about 2/3's through the video and Emil did say that about pantera being italian for Panthor. I still think it's cool that there's a heavy metal band with the same name and they'd probably endorse it because of how unique it is.

                                  Also the Ka-rem dude is going to be translucent! SWEET!!!

                                Interesting. Thanks.

                                Anagram huh? Would have never guessed.

                                I refrained from making a Pantera joke.
