The Legends of Dragonore preorder has finally arrived and they are making a huge splash in the toy community with their new throwback, 5.5″ figure line designed to transport you into a different realm and back to the 1980’s. According to the creator, Formo Toys, here is an intro to this new line if you have not heard of them before:
This is a new and exciting line of 5.5” action figures designed to look like those found in the toy isles and toy chests of the 1980s. When action figures were simpler… yet full of creativity and fun! The figures have been conceived and designed by Emiliano Santalucia and modeled by Peer Brauner.
Each action figure stands 5.5”, has six points of articulation and it is made of ABS and PVC plastic. The figures feature multiple pop-apart joints that allow for simple mix-and-match customizing, and with the expansion of the line, will expand to a world of new possibilities, characters, and creatures. Each figure has up to ten modular joints. The joints are fully compatible with similar vintage modular figures. Most figures come with removable armor and one or more accessories.
The first wave is entitled The Beginning and will include six figures. Each of the first 6 figures in the line also comes with one or more pieces of our first Divine Armor of Power™ figure. By collecting the entire wave, customers will be able to put together this special figure not available separately. The Divine Armor of Power™ figure is completely compatible with the other figures’ joints. Figures come packaged in retro full-color blister cards.https://www.formotoys.com/legendsofdragonore

UPDATE: 08/06/22: Ignytor the Red coming soon to Legends of Dragonore!
Posted to Yo Tengo El Poder’s Instagram page, as seen at this year’s Formo Toy’s Power Con display, a new dragons wave is coming to the Legends of Dragonore! Ignytor the Red is the first of these new Dragons! He looks absolutely spectacular. It looks like our Hero Barbaro can ride Ignytor if he is in the 4-legged position, or Ignytor can Stand up as well! Looks like he will come with an elaborate staff and chest armor! They said there will be more info to come later this year.
Kicking off the line is Barbaro, the heroic leader, in a gold and blue color scheme! He has an open helmet that is horned that that sits atop his head and a very cool furry chest harness with a gold emblem in the middle. He is also wearing a blue furry loin cloth and has an open shoe design where you can see his toes. He comes with a gold Battle Axe, which is his weapon of choice. Here are more details about Barbaro from Formo Toys:
- Heroic Leader!
- Homeworld: Anterra
- Special Abilities: Mighty Strength
- Weapons of choice: Battle Axe
Story: Barbaro is the greatest warrior of all Lowwa Landas. Never has there been a champion as brave or as strong. But dire is the future, as Barbaro has felt The Call. The visions of a goddess from a distant world have drawn him to Darkazia in search of the ancient ruins; the legendary Well where all realities connect. Meanwhile, a war is brewing among the Landas tribes and Barbaro is left with a dilemma: stay and protect his people, or take the helmet and the axe his father gave him, and venture into the unknown for a greater feat?
Every heroic warrior needs an evil counterpart and Oskuro is that evil villain that has an obsessive fascination with the dark arts. Clad in a power blue and black color scheme, Oskura definitely is sporting that evil vibe with his jet white hair and scar across eye! he has more of a flaired collar look to his chest harness with a cool skull and crossbones looking symbol on it. Dawning a furry cape and clutching his blue horned Chaos Staff, he looks like he means business! Here are more details about Oskura from Formo Toys:
- Evil Magician!
- Homeworld: Endimyan
- Special Abilities: Magic Possession
- Weapons of choice: Chaos Staff
Story: No one likes to talk about Oskuro. Those that have encountered him claim that death is preferable than being in debt to the man! And yet, some whisper that he is of royal origin; a nobleman that fell from grace in order to pursue his obsessive fascination with the dark arts. Oskuro’s reputation precedes him wherever he finds himself. That said, his motives often remain shrouded in mystery, even though his thirst for power is widely recognized. Oskuro has been seen traveling across the most savage regions of the western lands of late. Some suspect Oskuro is planning something of a dark nature, something colossal. If this is true, the world should be concerned…
This red skinne demon with tusks protruding from his face is a force to reckon with! Wearing yellow and green armor, the contrast of colors go brilliantly together with his ornate look and menacing facial features. The yellow eyes tie everything together and we hope you don’t cross paths with this brute! Toting a black spiked club dubbed the Morning Star, he is sure to spark fear in his foes! Here are more details about Onitor from Formo Toys:
- Merciless Hunter of Darkazia!
- Homeworld: Unknown
- Special Abilities: Wide vision, near-limitless stamina
- Weapons of choice: Morning Star
Story: Within the region of Darkazia, the desolated lands of Anterra see little sunlight, the skies obscured by powerful dust storms. Within this treacherous land a castle is hidden; an ancient fortress within which many secrets lie. But crossing the desolation in order to reach the ruins is a deadly feat, for the land is fraught with peril. It is common knowledge that those who have attempted the journey have never returned, rumored to have succumbed to a terrible, implacable demon! A being so powerful and devious that many believe it is utterly unstoppable. Once this creature has selected his target, nothing will prevent him from hunting and defeating his opponent.
A purple cat’like creature, Pantera, literally means female panther and she definitely fits bill! She is from a lethal race of panther-like beings and she is cast in a dark blue skin tone with black spots on the arms and legs. She has a unique piece of chest armor that is cast in pink that provices protection for her shoulders. Her weapon of choice is a sword, that is also cast in pink and it goes along great with her armor!
- Silent Huntress!
- Homeworld: Endimyan
- Special Abilities: Nocturnal vision, heightened sense of smell
- Weapons of choice: Sword
Story: The cavemen of the savage inner region provide me with a great resource of henchmen. However, their subterranean world presents them with many dangers; something that I have been able to exploit, and thus demonstrate my superiority in order to win their allegiance. Amongst these dangers are a rarely-seen, incredibly fast, and viciously lethal race of panther-like beings. On one occasion, having ventured into one of their lairs and slain many of these creatures, I stumbled across a young female kit. I made the decision to take her with me and raise her as my own. Admittedly, over the years, I have grown fond of Pantera, but it would be folly for me to show any affection, for a warrior capable of great destruction lies within her! Here are more details about Pantera from Formo Toys:
A chieftain, the priestess, the mother, and warrior, Yondara has the ability to project her being through time and space. With a large gold headdress that looks like it provides ample protection, it ties in nicely with the with the gold Divination staff that has a similar look to it. You can definitely get tribal vibes from this figure and her red outfit goes really well with her gold chest harness decoration and her loin armor that drapes down to her mid thigh. Here are more details about Yondara from Formo Toys:
- Heroic Chieftan!
- Homeworld: Endimyan
- Special Abilities: Projecting her spirit through dimension, divination
- Weapons of choice: Divination staff
Story: I heard The Call. I am ready. I have been preparing for this moment all of my life, as generations of women before me did. I am the chieftain, the priestess, the mother, and the warrior. Using my powers through the mists of time and space, I have projected my spirit and reached out to the champions whose goals align with my own. With our shared faith we shall brave the quest that awaits us. A quest that will take us through a thousand Wells, into a thousand realities. I will leave my tribe, my daughter, and my friends in order to protect the pan-dimensional universe, and prevent the sacred Divine Armors from falling into the hands of those who would seek to destroy us!
One of the most intersting figures in the line is Ka-Rem, who is cast in a dark blue translucent plastic. With his ability to travel between dimension, the figure looks like he is in transition between them. Giving off a genie vibe, he has a Staff of Light, which resembles a magic lamp and his gold accents compliment his blue skin and outfit really well! The stark whites are a perfect color for his hair and his loin cloth and his purple soft good cape puts a nice ribbon on this amazing looking figure.
- Brave Mystyical Warrior!
- Homeworld: Al Ab Enoh
- Special Abilities: Travel between dimensions
- Weapons of choice: Staff of Light
Story: Of the many magical beings observed, the Jinn of Light is one the most ancient and mysterious. Ka-Rem claims to herald from Al Ab Enoh, but this name cannot be located within any ancient texts detailing the countless worlds and dimensions. It is probable that this information pre-dates existence itself or has simply been lost within the sands of time. Yet, Ka-Rem is almost like a child. He is playful and caring, whilst also being stubborn and temperamental. Ka-Rem’s relationship with his Staff of Light remains unclear, as does the true scope of his powers. We know his third eye can lead the way between dimensions, but it can also see into the heart of those he encounters.
Divine Armor of Power
The Devine Armor of Power looks to be a build a figure as each one includes all of the pieces needed to form the Divine Armor. This figure has an ancient Samurai look it it and is clad in a mix of orange and blue armor that is very intricately detailed. In order to complete this figure, you need to collect them all and with how amazing this initial offering is, we don’t see an issue with this. The Divine Armor of Power is comprised of 11 modular parts, has ten points of articulation, and also stands 5.5″ tall!
Story: Barbaro is on a quest to retrieve the ancient Divine Armors of Power™ scattered across the dimensions. During their adventures, the Heroic Champions will encounter the dark magic apprentice Oskuro™ and his Evil Masters, who possess the power to transform the heroes into terrible monsters! Who will attain the Divine Armors of Power™ first?
If you order the early bird kit, you will also get the Castle Dragonore™ cardboard diorama, which is very cool and being that it is made of cardboard, this will surely fit in a space you can carve out for it as this takes up less room in depth to display than a traditional plastic playset. The image below on the left is a digital render but if you check out Formo Toys Instagram page, you can see a lot of behind the scenes shots and what this diorama display could look like in real life!
