Originally I was not a huge fan of the King He-Man figure, but I find this future interpretation of our hero has grown on me.
So much so that I'm thinking it would be awesome if Mattel would release a King Faker figure.
Who knows, in the bio canon, Skeleteen, DC (tusk) Skeletor or maybe even Despara could decide to dust the cobwebs off Faker and remodel him with bearded and scarred face and new kingly armor.
In addition to an orange version of the electronic power sword, King Faker could come packed with an additional Faker-ised 200x (Snake Armor) He-Man head, giving fans the option to mix-match regular Faker with a more 200x-ish version.
I would also like to see either an orange or (Skeletor armor) purple version of He-Man's original armor included. Always seemed strange to me that Faker would wear an orange version of Skeletor's armor instead of He-Man's when doing his impersonation. This was one aspect that Filmation had 100% correct in their representation of Faker (albeit, Filmation should have used pale blue skin, orange hair instead of the glowing eyes).
Would anyone else support this King Faker plus accessories concept?

I quite like the idea, but I think the Create-A-Character contest is over!
After I get the glorm, minicomic variants and Attak Trak, I'll give a thumbs up to anyone's idea.

I wouldn't be opposed to more Faker figures. And I would love 200X He-Man's head recolored for Faker. But what I want most is Leo Faker, preferably with Preternia disguise He'Man's head.

That's a really cool idea, and work really well in the MOTUC cannon. I've never been a huge Faker fan, but I do like this idea.
Dude, you "Faker" anything and I'll buy it. Honestly though, I'd say the He-Slave from New Adventures is higher on my list, but this still sounds like good stuff that I'd be up for.

Alexx has a blog?! Come on in and check out Toys and Tomfoolery! You won't regret it...until the next morning.
I could see Faker outlasting everybody else to become king. But my favorite robot king has already been released:

Yes, please, I'll take one of every Faker flavor. Mark me, 2017 is ALL Fakers. And it will be awesome.
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
No thanks. Never understood the amount of excitement over a blue and orange he-man.
Most wanted figures: TUSKADOR!!! Vultak, Dylamug, Quakke, Lizzor, Crita, King Miro, Granita, Sagitar, Despara, Darius, Hawke
IDK I think I would rather see King Skeletor over King Faker
Looking forward to the entire 2014 & 2015 line
Yes! I would totally be on board for this idea. Faker is actually my next tattoo this summer, can't wait! It's not only that the blue and orange look so cool together as a color scheme, but the overall idea of a He-Imposter I always found cool. Yea, any other versions of him, within reason, (no Ice Armor Faker or anything like that), you can count me in.
(Alcala head Faker anyone? Bare chested with a removable front panel for the robotics?)
Doesn't interest me at all even though I like Faker, I don't want any variants of him. Prefer more NA.
Not interested. A lot of other things need to be made before inventing new variations of figures.

I want a Leo Faker first, but after that am open to all kinds of cool Faker variants.
When I was younger I used to send in ideas to Mattel all the time for new figures. A majority of them used to be Faker-inspired for some reason like Battle Armor Faker and Thunder Punch Faker so I'd be down for this. I also asked them to make a version of Battle Cat for Faker to ride and name him Copy Cat.
They would always send a nice reply letter explaining why they couldn't use my ideas but I'm still waiting on Copy Cat to make an appearance You can have that one Mattel.
If he comes with a new vintage faker head and the magenta armor a la card-back, I'll support him to the grave. His, not mine.
