    MOTUC Gladius - Defender of the Goddess

    Ancestor of Duncan, the Man-At-Arms of the House of Randor, Gladius was the first Man-At-Arms to serve the royals of Eternia. As weapons master for King Grayskull it is rumored that he first forged the Power Sword, though this is only myth and legend. During the climactic battle between the forces of Grayskull and the Snake-men, Gladius was mortally wounded in combat defending his king. After the battle was over the Goddess of Grayskull restored Gladius' life with a portion of the Power of He. In return for this gift Gladius has sworn to protect the Goddess for all eternity. Alongside Zodak, Gladius fights the forces of evil that wish to possess the greatest power in the universe.

    I like your concept. I love the idea of there being precursors to the Man-at-Arms title.

    Love the Concept. Nice work.
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    Thanks everyone. I'm glad you like it.

    To answer the question of the chest piece, I considered doing something custom with it and may do that with one of the damaged pieces. But I left the "H" symbol as a tie to the Power of He which the Goddess bestowed upon him. Its his way of honoring that gift and the legacy of "The Power".

    I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt because you're new.

    (<---- points at avatar) But everybody knows that Bae-Na is the real protector of the Goddess.

    Awesome custom btw.

    Great custom! i think the parts and colors go well together. i would have never thought of the man-at-arms head being used in too many different ways before but i think this way is very fitting with the bio you gave him and the figure itself. i like that he is an earlier man-at-arms. any chance we could see what he looks like holding the short sword that came with man-at-arms? i think that sword would look good with him

    I've been revisiting this figure in anticipation of the Palace Guard set being released. I'm thinking I might swap out the chest plate with the "lieutenant" plate from the Guard set. I'll have to get it in hand first though.
