Cool man !
very cool !
I wanted to do a He-Man that was a cross between the iconic He-Man we all know and love with the 1987 movie He-Man with only (slightly modified) MOTUC parts.
Hope you like.
Let me know what you think
UPDATED with better pics and detail pics.

I love it. I'd much rather have variants like this than battle armor.
that's really awesome!
clever reuse of parts, congrats.
i must echo eterniandreams question, how did you manage to keep shoulderpads in place?
dont suppose you could post what you used, and how you did it?
kinda a step by step guide?

This is one of the better customs I've seen period. I love the wash effect on both the armor and the cape.
Would you mind giving us a bit of an overview on the technique you used?
Awesome work all around. Hopefully u have a movie inspired Skeletor coming next.
now THAT is a MOTUC figure I'd buy....sweet!

All of my VINTAGE MOTU "CONCEPT" customs are here:
Thanks for all the kind words everyone.
The recipe is:
Chief Carnivorus Shins
The Harness is a standard He-Man harness with Cheif Carnivorus Shoulder pads, held together with plastic strips from a DVD case. I dremeled out the shoulder pads to be flush and heated the strips to match the curve of the harness. the Cape loops are necklace bobbles I had, bent to D-Rings and secured with plastic from throw away plastic tupperware.
I dremeled out the weird part in the cape, took the cross piece of the He-Man harness and epoxie puttied it into the gap, cut the tops of the cape off and remodeled them to fit into the harness.
The Hardest part was painting the cape, and finding a skin tone match for the forearms, the pictures make them look funny, which I'm not happy about, but in real life its spot on.
This was my first real custom, so I'm mostly happy with how it turned out
I will post pics of the insides and undersides and such if you guys want.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Fantastic work, love the cape attachments on the back.

It looks fantastic!
Holy crap is this awesome! This is EXACTLY what a MOTUC movie He-Man would look like. Brilliant re-use of parts.
SKELETORTILLA...It's taco night at Snake Mountain!
GREAT job! I was just thinking recently of how a mix of the movie and classic figure would look. It's perfect! Well done!

Wow. Very nice custom!
But, can you post the first and the second picture in th same size like the third, please???
Wow, very cool He-man! I can imagine the Dolph face on him would look sweet as well.
Man, he looks very King Leonides (300) as well.
I think you just gave a lot of us some inspiration for a future personal custom.
Yeh, that He-man is killer!

awesome! great work! ...

USE YOUR ILLUSION
very very very nice.
the only thing I would say as a constructive critic:
the hair should be updated.
basically the amazing paint job on the armor really makes the hair look "blah" compared to it.
i think the hair should be a bit dirtier.....
but the idea/workmanship is amazing.
keep it up.
