Inspired by He-Man.org’s Roast Gooble Dinner podcast, welcome to PGPoA’s latest MOTUC Bio Discussion!
Real Name: Unrevealed
Across the continent of Preternia, the mightiest of King Grayskull’s Knights was Sir Laser-Lot, a master of weapons and hand-t0-hand fighting techniques. He wore an enchanted suit of armor powered by the great Gem of Tamadge which enhanced his strength and let him unleash powerful energy blasts. So legendary were his deeds that the future king He-Man sent one of his loyal Time Agents into the past to bring Sir Laser-Lot forward to his time. Here, Sir Laser-Lot became the King’s new Man-At-Arms, training both the Royal Guards and the King’s young son Dare in ancient battle techniques. Sir Laser-Lot uses his energy blade to fight for chivalry and justice in any time.
Mattel posted packaging art and bios for Sir Laser-Lot and Spikor on Facebook yesterday, and in the interest of actually striking while the iron is hot, I’ve decided to start posting these bios as they’re revealed.
The bio for Snake Man-At-Arms established that Clamp Champ replaced Duncan as Man-At-Arms, but that was presumably around the time of the Second Ultimate Battleground. Sir Laser-Lot’s bio provides what seems to be the farthest-flung date in the MOTUC Bio Universe (MBU), as he’s called forward by “future king” He-Man to train the Royal Guards and He-Man’s son Dare.
Dare is a reference to the unproduced “He-Ro: Son of He-Man” pitch by Lou Scheimer Productions in the 1990s. I ran “Tamadge” through an anagram site but didn’t find anything more interesting than “Mad Gate” or “Data Gem” – maybe a diehard Green Lantern/Geoff Johns fan can suss out any reference that might be hiding in there.
I think it’s safe to assume the loyal “Time Agent” is Spector, though “Agents” is plural, so who knows. Part of me is a bit creeped out by the prospect of King He-Man having an army of time-travelling agents running back and forth through time and space, fixing up whatever bits of history He-Man doesn’t like.
If this were a toy line directed toward kids rather than adult collectors, that bio would be way too complicated.
