Card Art Teases

Hurricane Hordak

We get to see a couple card art teases on Sy-Klone’s packaging. On the front we get a tease for Hurricane Hordak, as Hordak leads an army of Horde Troopers to attack Sy-Klone. Hurricane Hordak with his spinning right hand of evil is the perfect nemesis for Sy-Klone!

Hurricane Hordak is one of the original vintage deluxe figures we yet to get in the line, so maybe this is a tease of things to come. The original Hurrican Hordak was released in 1985 and came with a spinning Horde bat gimmick on his right hand that could be swapped out for two other accessories, shown below.

Fright Zone Tease

Big as day, we can see on the rear card back art Sy-Klone at the Fright Zone, battling against the cave snake drawn in the style of the classic vintage playset! Fans have been asking for a Fright Zone now for a very long time, and it is just the perfect size for a retail playset! If you recall, last October, The Fright Zone was one of the choice during the Eternia’s Choice Crowd Fund Fan vote, where Lady Slither’s Snake Lair won the vote. But that did not satisfy fans who were still wanting a Fright Zone Playset. Well maybe this is just the tease we all needed! You will also notice Mossy climbing up the side of the cliff to help his friend out from the dreads Fright Zone Snake! It’s amazing to see this beautiful comparison to a vintage poster art and the stunning homage this new card back art pays to the original!

A vintage style Fright Zone is as it brings us the Fright Zone we all know and loved as kids, but embellishes it to another level. Complete with Snake puppet coming out of the cave, dead tree with the crows and cave jail cell, this set pulls at those nostalgic heartstrings! Below you can see the sketches that were part of the Eternia’s Choice Crowd Fund Fan vote.

MOTU Eternia's Choice Fan Vote Traditional Fright Zone

The Fright Zone playset was released by Mattel in 1985. More of a diorama piece, the Fright Zone was a simple looking playset that consisted of that famous green colored craggily stone, a rustic dungeon door, a tunnel for a puppet snake to come thru and a scary looking tree complete with scarecrows. This playset was a huge departure for the vast environments that Castle Grayskull and Snake Mountain brought, but I think it holds a special place in the hearts of Evil Horde fans. It didn’t resemble the techno-future location depicted in the Filmation cartoon at all, but it was still cool!

First illustrated on the 2020 Power Con exclusive She-Ra figure card back artwork, the Fright zone was featured on both the front and rear of the card back art. Shown below, you can see Hordak attacking Adora at the fright zone. It is also pictured on the front of the fold out artwork in stunning color showing Hordak’s minions Mantenna, Grizzlor and Catra atop Clawdeen her evil pink lion at the steps of the Fright Zone near the evil tree.

The Fright Zone shown for a second time on the Origins Hordak card back artwork. Again with a bevy of his minions by his side. This time a pair of Horde Trooper, Grizzlor, Leech, Mantenna and Modulock join him.

We see the Fright Zone for the third time featured center stage in all its 1980’s style glory on the 2021 Masters of the Universe Origins Power Con Exclusive Horde 4 Pack – lamp shade box, as I like to call it. This time depicted in stunning wrap around artwork by the great Axel Gimenez. In all 3 cases, your will notice that the Fright Zone is depicted as it was in 1985 Mattel playset release and not what the Filmation cartoon location looked like. Again, giving us a hint that perhaps Mattel in classic Origins style has its sights set for a Fright Zone Origins release?! Only time will tell…..

Sy-Klone

Sy-Klone was introduced into the Masters of the Universe toy line in 1985. Given that the cartoon series was drawing to a close by the time he was introduced, his role in the show is so brief as to be almost nonexistent. He appears only in minor, fleeting cameo appearances in two episodes: “Beauty and the Beast” and “Here, There, Skeletors Everywhere”.

Sy-Klone is a member of the Heroic Warriors. A blue-skinned cyborg with the ability to spin at super-speed and generate a whirlwind, he is also able to spin different parts of his body individually and was dubbed the ‘Heroic fist-flinging tornado’.

His torso will still pop off and he actually spins. He comes with 2 extra hands that are tornados, shield, red cyclone rings like what came with the MOTU Classics figure. You pop his torso up and he spins! Sy-Klone maintains all the same articulation as the rest of the figures. He has is lenticular sticker on his chest as well.

Sy-Klone Test Shots

Sy-Klone was also revealed at SDCC 2023 and is one of the most asked for figures in the MOTU Origins line. He’s been teased on countless card and box arts and it’s amazing to see his test shots!

Sy-Klone-Masters-of-the-Universe-Origins-Test-Shot-1

Below, you can see how the whirlwind tornado effects fit on the ends of his wrists and how the entire body fits together.

From the back you can see the details on his helmet plus the large hole in his back! We can also see a close up of his action feature, which is only for the Sy-Klone figure. charlie_5.5 said on his Instagram page, “the waist does not come apart. There is a thick post connector to the torso to waist. Only the arms, hands, head and boots are swappable.”

Sy-Klone Card Art Teases

The last time we saw Sy-Klone Teased on a card back is on Tung Lashor’s card back art. This is the 3rd time Sy-Klone has been teased on MOTU Card art!

Here is a Hi-Res version of Tung Lashor’s card back art featuring Sy-Klone!

We’ve seen Sy-Klone on a couple different card art montages, including Jitzu’s where if you were not paying attention to who was flying in from the side, you would definitely miss him. I think He-Man can stand on his own defending against Jitzu’s chopping fist but Sy-Klone is there for backup! We also saw him in the most recent release of the Flying Fists He-Man card art where he is taking an offensive pose raising his shield high up in the air.
