I think one of the most appealing aspects of He-man and the Masters of the universe is the combination of Magic and Sci-Fiction. In the He-man universe there are lots of different modes of transportation. There are beast mounts like Battlecat and Panthor then there are sci-fi type vehicles like the Windraider and Attack Trak. But my favorite was Skeletor's Battle Ram Chariot. To me it really exemplified the amalgamation of sorcery and science. So when I got the chance to buy the toy version I didn't hesitate.
At first I was pretty disappointed, the toy looked way too colorful to be the ride for the Overlord of Evil. But upon closer inspection I saw alot of great detail that would look awesome if only it was brought out more. So when I heard of the Vehicular Toyslaughter contest I thought this would make a great entry. First I started with the chariot it self. I took it apart and experimented with color combinations. I really liked the ram heads, they had tons of details in the face and the horns. I decided to make them look stone-like with metal rivets driving home the science and sorcery aspect. The top of the chariot was adorned with alot of bones and skulls so I tried to make them look as skeletal as possible. Lastly I painted all the metal parts a bronzeish gold to give it a regal look.

As for Skeletor I thought I was pretty smart to use the Wrarrl base. It was a perfect base for Skeletor.
But after searching on the Realm I found out it is a fairly common recipe so I thought I would make a cloth hood and cape to give it a look of my own. Finally I painted the armor parts of his costume the same bronzeish gold color to give and the chariot some continuity. Hope you guys like what I made and as always thanks for looking.

Recipe:

Base: Wrarrl
Head: Movie Ghost Rider
Feet: FO Sabertooth

Skeletor is the best evil character ever, and this one you did brings the evil to the character. Love chariot with golden horns. Fantastic job!

Well I was born in 1980 so I watched He-Man but I do not remember much about actual episodes. Regardless of whether my memory is good or not you did a great job on this chariot.

MAJOR CONGRATULATIONS too Sir! ..Someone thought also that your entry and mine were both created by one person. Well because of the "Skully Theme" and where both entered on the same day.. I liked Skeletor than HEMAN..I liked what you did to the chariot...I had the same chariot and Pardon me Sir if I will borrow your concept..

I love the work but did Skeletor actually have a ride other than his panther?

Actually Skeletor used this Chariot quite a bit in the 200x cartoons and rarely rode Panthor. Panthor was seen lounging around Snake Mountain and rarely saw battle. I know kinda odd.
