You may recall that in the MotU Classics Keldor review, Poe mentioned that fans were upset that we didn't get a new version of the 2002 split sword. Well, according to a post on He-Man.org, the winds of change are blowing:
To leave on a good note, we did just have our meeting with management to go over the 2012 line. We also discussed the 200X head design and weapon design direction. While we are still not going to explore 200X redesigned character heads in the online line, I did get some sway on the weapons and we are going to now find a way to do the "Keldor Swords" in Classic style. (despite what people say I am in there fighting the good fight!).
This isn't indicitive of "rules changing," I just made the case that enough fans want these and it doesn't indicate a changed character design. So hey, chalk one up for a fan demand victory!
I was going to save this announcement for [Toy Fair], but hey, you guy wanted a He-Man.org news break, there you go!
Sometimes it pays to complain.
