    Faker Re-Release/Repaint with purple armor?

    It seems that there is a pretty good chance that Faker will sell out as fast as Stratos, if not even faster.
    Now, let's pretend that really happens, and due to fan demand, Mattel decides to re-release him later on.

    BUT, in order to distinguish the 2nd run from what was originally supposed to be a limited Exclusive figure, Mattel decides to produce no straight re-release. Instead, they go with a repaint, using the "purple sword & armor" color scheme from the original cardbacks:


    Now my question is: Would you buy that figure?

    Yes I would as well! Does anyone know if the allocation of Fakers at NYCC sold out? I am just intrested to know if they did, as we haven't had any reports saying how well he sold at the con from TG (that I have seen).

    Yes, I think I would, but I'm anticipating getting Faker next month as he currently is before turning my attention to a repaint.

    Goes without saying, I'd snatch such a repaint up as soon as it were available.

    The card back version looks good, but having the photoshopped version of the MOTUC I voted no. I think he loses something.

    I wouldn't want this version. At least not until far into the future, when Mattel has already reissued the original version at least once for those who miss out.
    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

    Yes I would buy this repaint, but I'd prefer a straight re-release with much brighter hair as second run. If a repaint like shown above was made, but with a lot brighter hair, I'd get a few duplicates to swap heads too...

    Eh. It's cool and all, but I wouldn't feel compelled to get it. Faker is only special to me in orange, 'cause that's the one I had. If they wanted to do a repaint of him, i'd rather see something new and strange. For instance, if they matched Skeletor's purple so it looks like Skelly's evil sword also turned him into a version of He-Man. That would be interesting! Useless for most people's own stories, but I don't mind.

    I don't like that color on Faker. The pink / purple scheme works for Prince Adam, but for a character like Faker it would, IMO, look very.... awkward...

    That's funny! In one thread people are complaining that Faker is just a simple repaint of He-Man and In this thread the majority wants a Faker repaint. I do not necessarily need a Faker repaint. Ok, I would surely buy one.

    Not interested in a Magenta armored Faker myself.
    So I voted no.

    But honestly if they re-release him with that deco, I'll be happy for all of you who wanted him, and happy I don't have to buy him.

    In general, I'm all for as many figures as they can release and re-release, whether I like the characters or color choices or not. Long Live MotU!!! Now, and FOREVER!

    I hope the changes in the re-issues aren't that drastic. Something that different would compel most fans to want both versions, which kind of defeats the point of the re-release, since it's supposed to be 2nd chance for those who missed out the first time. A less significant change, something that satisfies the 2nd chancers, and is different enough to entice a few completists, would be more in order IMO.

    Not for me, thanks. I never even knew about "magenta Faker" until the last couple of years. Orange is where it's at for me personally, and Faker isn't a character I'm crazy enough about to want another one.

    However, if it were to come out with a little more brightly-colored hair like Evil Ed mentioned, then I might get him just to swap the head with my "Orange Faker."

    I agree with this (^) completely.

    If they did the StarComics version, I'd buy that one for sure! But not a mild re-paint like that.

    the card back one looks red with ginger hair to me....

    I'd prefer if they gave a repaint a a black and bronze colour scheme. a black bowersword with bronze hilt would look really cool (instead of the plain stupid day glo orange one) and a black harness with a bronze trim would work equally well. I'd rush out to buy that one.

    But red or purple armour? I'd probaby pass it up unless there was a bonus (battle damaged plz!!!!) head included

    I think that would be great a leo faker ( just add skeletor staff ) as a re-release.

    No need for a individually packaged repaint. Just throw those accessories into the next Weapons Pak and sold!

    Add the skele loin cloth and extra green paint detail around the eyes and then your talkin'!

    Along with Fuerza-T it'll never happen.

    Wish I had enough spare time/cash to do some customising.

    I agree, that would be a great version. I dont think an extra limited run of a figure would cut into any monthly slot. Look how sucessful the spirit of hordak figure has been. I wonder how a all blue translucent faker would look like.
