    Why do the forearm swap, just swap the whole body:

    I may still do that. I originally bought DB Skeletor to use those parts on Mer-Man, and repaint green of course. Already sold off the rest of the armor, dragon, sword & body before I put these parts on Skeletor out of curiosity.

    I may end up buying another DB Skeletor and do just as you did. I do prefer the lighter blue of the original Skeletor, though. Then there is the issue of the blastic and its susceptibility to scratching, especially at the shoulders. I'm not sure what I want to do.

    I didn't just do a body swap for these reasons...

    1) The color of the trunks is a little different on DB than regular Skeletor. The strips that hang down are darker on DB Skeletor.
    2) I wanted to minimize the amount of "blastic" on the figure.
    3) DB Skeletor's right hand isn't even a Skeletor hand.

    When I made my "vintage toy" style Skeletor, I used the DB boots and arms from the biceps to the wrist. The body and hands are from a regular Skeletor. Yes, the blues are not identical but they are a passable match. Swapping at the bicep meant I was less likely to scrape off blue paint from the blastic during the transfer and the color matching is minimized by the joint. By giving him regular Skeletor hands, I don't have to worry about paint coming off when I change weapons and he doesn't have the non-Skeletor right hand.

    I'll post a pic when I can.

    First thing I did when I opened him! New Adventures Thunder Punch He-Man's harness and shield on the NA He-Man. Almost takes care of the whole deal, save for the sword!

    NA He-Man's head is looking a lot better with every picture I see of it. Maybe it was just a pre-production thing?

    stprime is correct, it fits perfectly! Almost fits better on the classics body than it does on the original.

    Spector at work ya see, he went back in time to make those NA figures have massive armour knowing we would need it today in 2013. You should reward Spector with the new neon green He-man armour dude.

    That looks great. So the armor fits perfectly but does the shield snap on perfectly as well? Does the green match the MOTUC version of his sword? I don't have those parts but I may track them down because only 2 display options isn't enough.

    Like I said, the blues are a little off, but the fact that the harness and belt look more vintage in coloring and match each other more closely is more important to me.

    Please can someone do a mash up of a couple of figs and post the resulting pics

    Hi guys,

    I would like to see what a Ditztroyer head looks like on a Faker body.

    Faker must have his orange chest gear on but I would like to see a version that has BOTH Ditztroyers head and cape on with it and ALSO a version with just Ditztroyers head and no cape.

    Would really appreciate it and thank in advance to anyone who can come up with the goods.

    I believe it wouldn't work... Faker cannot have the Torso Amor while wearing Ditzroyer's Cape. The crossbones and the strap on the back would make the cape look off.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    You got it!





    The head just BARELY fits with the cape over the armor. Also, as DO4M explained, the sword holder on the back of Faker's armor make the cape stick WAY out, and it weighs him down. I had to balance him correctly to get him to stand, and he kept falling over.

    Hey Alexx thanks so much.

    Would you be able to do a shot of him without Fakers armour then and with the head and cape BUT with the Horde symbol?

    Sorry! Didn't see this question originally: anyway, the armor is a tad clearer than the sword (sword would be more smoky) but they match a lot better than I thought they would.

    And there YOU go!

    Also, since I had the parts out why-not:

    Doesn't look bad at all!

    I'm repainting the forearms on mine to match more closely with the original body. But your solution looks good too. Better than having the color difference at the elbows, where it looks more dramatic.

    A couple of my recent experiments:

    No idea what I am going to call her, but she will be a unique character, since BG Evil-lyn is my "canon" version. Just a Evil-lyn with Jewelstar's head and cape.

    66710_10200932988798347_489640051_n.jpg

    And this is my growing army of Snake men! A bit of paint and some different armors, etc. Dragon Blaster Skeletor never worked for me, but for some reason a Snake Man creature handler with a enslaved Dragon does. Probably over thinking it a bit.

    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    Had to do it! I've had the TRU He-Man parts and TRU yellow Power Sword set aside specifically for this guy ever since he was revealed and we knew he had normal abs.
