    For me definately a custom! There is no legit proof that this BA He-man was ever produced by Mattel or any other Motu producing company.

    If you look at the sword, it seems that the original grey colour is shining through.

    It is a good custom work, thats all.
    FIGURE twists for a power punch!

    It is a fake. If it was real, we wouldn't just now be seeing one for the first time.

    This is not the first time ive seen one, in fact im pretty sure someone on the boards brought one a year or two ago, If I remember correctly it cost them about $250 to find out it was dyed

    hahahhahah. who voted for it's real??? cuase i got this greta bridge in brooklyn if youre interested? or maybe some beachfront property in arizona??


    i like how people will pay out the wahzoo for something thats soooo fake yet debate the cost of say the weaver that lulu was selling or even cotu stuff. which are at least original and not a dye job of one of the most common cheap figs on earth.

    i see at least 5 real collectors bidding on this piece for what exceeds 100.00 thats crazy. im losing alot of respect for these so called crazy collectors ;/

    ahhh, thanks for posting Grobi, I knew I remembered this conversation: http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...d.php?t=123389

    It is a cool custom, not a true variant.

    I just noticed, 4 hours left... good luck on the auction! It's already up to a good amount!

    Ah man, where did it go, I wanted to see that. The auction was removed, haha. JOAH-MAN goes off on a rant about fakes on his variant CD, and that one in particular. I've never seen somebody try and sell one. Was it sold as a custom, or non-descriptive other than it's Gold. And why show a receipt?

    Can you post pics here Grobi? I really would like to see it!

    thanks!

    it was sold on ebay as a toptoys variant. along with about 100 other toptoys variants like red shorts stinkor and man-e-weapons randor. they were all dyed. but mattel plastics dont fully absorb the dye and it only stains the plastic so if you scratch deep enough the true color shows. but at casual play it would appear the stained color.

    Actually Flying Fists He-Man is gold and grey.

    Obviously this BA He-Man is a custom.
