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.
