Vikor (Vintage) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:26714  
Name:Vikor (Vintage)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Masters of the Universe
Creator:GAR  
Date Added:January 13, 2011
Base Figure:Tri-Klops/He-Man
Height:5.00 inches
With the MOTUC version of Vikor coming up on January 18th, I felt a vintage counterpart needed to be made as well. So here goes.
This vintage version of Vikor is what the vintage He-Man might have looked like had the sketch by Mark Taylor been approved about 30 years ago...

Recipe:
-Helmet: Playmobil viking (cut and resculpted to fit He-Man’s head)
-Head: vintage He-Man (repainted)
-Body: vintage Tri-Klops
-Cape: vintage Grizzlor’s fur
-Loin cloth: parts of a McDonalds Superman figure cape (cut and painted)
-Sword: from a no-name knight toy
-Axe: vintage He-Man axe (heavily modified)
-Shield: vintage Grayskull weapin (modified)
-Necklace: from a no-name prehistoric figure

I added a ‘rusty’ look to all his weapons, just like the new MOTUC figure has. I wanted to have his weapons look like they are ‘worn’ by time (and fierce battles) and did not go for a very ‘clean’ look. The only thing I don’t really like is the way his shield came out. That needs to be modified a bit so that the ‘tip’ stays on better. Otherwise I’m extremely pleased with this figure. Comments are welcome!

Thanks for the kind words!
I really like the way he came out as well. It proves that you can make cool(er) toys from those vintage Masters Of The Universe figures!

Cool!! If this He-Man was on the shelves back then I definitely would have picked him up! Especially if he looked like yours! Great job!!
