    I think he would work better as a minion of skeletor since that's how he is shown in that one appearance.

    I'd buy him as a bonus figure.

    And I'd call him...Blue Stratos.

    He could even come with this as an accessory:

    Because I only have 1 beastman loose that I have on the shelf. Beastmans feet make the most logical choice

    I used Skeletors feet and gave the socks to Skeletor to make a Keldor.

    Bonus in the air!

    If they made a new version of Stratos to match some of this artwork, I would buy it! I would like a Stratos with clawed toes anyway.

    I could dig the idea of "Avatar" being a bad guy. I wonder if the name Avatar would be OK, though. Mattel does have the liscence to Cameron's film, so....
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    That's what this one is that I did and he's ugly to me. I guess it would be a good one for people that want a hairy flesh colored body to use and customize.

    Hmmm... actually, I think if the wings were rotated toward the front (as many have done with Stratos, so that the wings are better positioned), the above figure as depicted in J_Man's post would be rather nice.

    *lol, a more appropriate pose would help too. Right now, with the spread open legs in that image, he looks like he's about to lay an egg, do some jumpin' jacks, or take part in a scandalous photo shoot of some sort.

    Hehe, yeah. Plucked feather chicken man Stratos. That's why I wanted to Photoshop one. I have seen the various customs and all but a nice virtual version gives even more sometimes. I just can't say I'd want it.

    Maybe to have the hairy chest, slap He-Man's arms and legs with Man-at-Arms' head (without the helmet). Put a gold chain on him and we'd have Dis-Co, the hippest man in the universe!

    I'm not that keen on a new Stratos - especially not an evil one. Stratos was never evil IMO so there's no need to make him evil now.

    A re-fresh/repaint could be ok (with reversed colours, Beast Man feet and a staff), but that flesh coloured version looks wrong.

    You made a good photoshop work, but the colors are not REAL to me, if we could see a painted real thing I think that your opinion would be different. His body would be painted with a flesh tone after all, and the added feathers would only make it better.

    This is the ultimate stratos I am waiting for, by the way.

    Nah, I think this version of Stratos is now forever "Dis-Co - The hippest man in the universe!"

    Read above..... stratos was never a villan. that picture is misleading, I had the same confusion too, until I actually read the comic.

    same as I was thinking.... to me, the flesh colored stratos was just a mistake from the beginning. There's obviously a good reason why his color was changed since that time. maybe because it looked like crap?

    imo, there's alot of characters I'd much rather see than another Stratos. i wouldn't write off the posibility of that version being made, but to me, it'd be an easy one to pass up. to me, Stratos is grey, with red wings. any other color isn't Stratos to me.

    The reason why people are discussing this version as a possible villain is because Stratos was meant to be one originally, and this would make for a separate character. It's just a discussion for fun.

    I don't think he looks 'flesh tone' in this picture. He seems to have a sandy colored look - like the fur on a camel. Also, his face and body are a different color.

    A possible name for the character could be "Nikko: Evil avatar of Skeletor." Nikko was the name given to the leader of the flying monkeys in the credits of The Wizard of Oz movie. The name Nikko comes from the Japanese city of the same name (Nikkō), where the famous Three Wise Monkeys shrine ("See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil") is located. In the western world the phrase is often used to refer to those who deal with impropriety by looking the other way, refusing to acknowledge it, or feigning ignorance. Those traits could possibly be worked into the character.

    Really good mock-up J_man! I think probably the furry loin cloth should be blue and the belt should be red, but that's just my guess.

    I confess I'm not really that interested in Stratos though. I hope his fans can get him though.

    I think that this character would be a nice nod to the past. Probably best to have him come from Wun-Dar's era. It would be interesting if his people were at war with the heroes back then, and then somewhere down the road they came to peace with each other.

    I'm fond of the Avion type names. In my MOTU world, there was a Stratos species character named CIRRUS. Stratosphere.... cirrus clouds... you see why I'm a genius...

    Throw in the suggestion: CIRRUS.

    Perhaps the guy ran with the baddies and that complicates Stratos' history a bit.... righting the wrongs of his ancestors, perhaps?
