Faker Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:33577  
Name:Faker
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Masters of the Universe
Creator:manomight1974  
Date Added:October 14, 2011
Base Figure:See Recipe
Height:6.50 inches
Having been inspired by to do a couple more characters from Marvel/Star Comics' 13 issue "Masters of the Universe" series from the 1980's, I set about doing a custom of Faker as he appeared in issue #7.

So, to accomplish this figure, I started with the DC Universe Classics vs. Masters of the Universe Classics Superman vs. He-Man 2-pack He-Man and COMPLETELY disassembled him. Next, I took an extra DC Universe Classics vs. Masters of the Universe Classics Lex Luthor vs. Skeletor 2-pack Skeletor and disassemled him. Once both figures were completely pulled apart, I repainted Skeletor's boots/feet, wristbands, loin cloth, and chest harness in a dark blue with silver for the bones and studs. Next, I put Skeletor's loin cloth and boots/feet onto the He-Man body and reassembled the He-Man. Once the glue on the abdomen piece and the upper chest had dried, I put the Skeletor chest harness onto the figure, reattached the head, and, TA-DA...Faker!!!!

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

He looks like he just stepped out of page 20 of the STAR comic. Well done!

Those STAR comics were mostly just advertorials for new toys. This issue featuring not only Faker, but also Ninjor, Clamp Chap and Blast Attack. Somehow I always felt that the Faker that was introduced here was the best version of him. No-one would believe that a blue skinned man and He-Man would actually be the same (although on Eternia everything is possible and people also don't recognize Prince Adam als He-Man ). Anyway, this version was best and you nailed it!

I'm glad you liked him GAR. Took me about a week to actually do him, but he's been on the old "TO-DO" List for about a year and a half.

You're right, those old comics were just adverts for the toys, just as the cartoon was as well. BUT, I did like that series as the designs on the characters were so cool, especially the characters who never appeared in figure form, or, like Faker, had a ridiculous figure design.

Thanks again for the comment, and, again, I'm glad you liked him...It is good to have another fan of my work.
