Custom #:33303  
Name:Adam - Leader of the Eternian Resistance
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Masters of the Universe
Creator:manomight1974  
Date Added:October 4, 2011
Base Figure:Masters of the Universe Classics Orko and Prince Adam 2-Pack Prince Adam
Height:6.50 inches
Having been inspired by GAR's "Adam - Leader of the Eternian Resistance" figure that I saw while perusing the 'Realm, I set about making my own. Not much work was done here except for the sculpting of the beard and the repainting of the hair and new beard. I used the "serious" Prince Adam head from the 2-pack as that more closely resembled the grizzled, resistance warrior that the former Prince of Eternia became in that 2-part story in issues 12-13 of Marvel/Star Comics' 1980's Masters of the Universe comic series. It took three coats of insignia yellow on the hair and beard to get it just right, but once the paint had dried, and the head was attached to the Prince Adam body, TA-DA...Adam - Leader of the Eternian Resistance!!!!

Please let me know what you guys think of him, and as always, comments are appreciated.

I am honored and humbled by the fact that you were inspired by one of my customs!
Thanks for the nod! I really appreciate that.

And... wow, well done! You totally brought him to life in MOTUC form. Great beard sculpt as well!
Lovely!

GAR, I give credit where credit is due. You did a fantastic figure, and it made me want to make one of my own in MOTUC scale. Besides, isn't that a part of the reason why we post our stuff...so that we can inspire and be inspired by each other?

I have to say this, that beard was a major pain in the butt to sculpt. The Milliput kept breaking on the chin and disintegrating. It took about three times to get it right. This was my first, and probably last, foray into sculpting facial hair. I don't ever want to go through THAT again.

I'm glad you liked it. This will probably not be my last MOTUC custom as I have one or two that I'd like to attempt, such as a Faker with caucasian skin, a Thunder Punch He-Man, and I may make some mods to Adam here to give him more comic and cartoon accurate colors in his clothing.

Thanks again.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it. That was my first attempt at sculpting a beard and I'm glad it came out as well as it did.
