Hello guys! Now that San Diego is almost upon us I wanted to reveal what could have been my entry to the create a character contest (I did not entered cause I do not agree with the terms you had to sign in the entry form, even if you did not win) The design for Koy-Jor has heavy Inca influences, from the earrings (Tulumpi) to the Grayskull chacana cross, the sun god and the Wiracocha emblem on his forehead, all detailed with rich colors, deep shading and Motuc style .

Since I was no longer creating it for the contest I scratched the original design which was heavy in the reuse of parts, and started fresh.

I created a bio for him happening during the time of King Grayskull , where he was first an ally from a different tribe and then becoming his master tactician. His banishment occurred a few days before the battle against Hordak where King Grayskull lost his life.

As most of you know, I’m Peruvian although I have been living in the USA now for 12 years, I will always be proud of my heritage and rich historical background, and this figure is a way to pay tribute to my country and culture, and what better way to incorporate him into my beloved masters line.

That is also why his bio ties in with the myth on how the Inca empire was founded, an old tale which is still being taught in Peruvian schools to this day (The legend of the Ayar brothers/ The legend of Manco Capac) the true origin is still unknown since the Incas did not write, so this ties some loose ends hehe.

Thanks for checking this figure out guys!

This is a BAD AZZ design and a GREAT execution Bro. I also didn't like the terms and didn't create any entry. I totally like the bio of this Inca He-Man!

*I am happy to know that there's another Latino here in the Realm. Keep it up Bro!!!
