    Mistico's Customs

    I figured that I was making too many threads with my various customs, so I decided to take those down and conglomerate them into one single thread so it's easier for me to keep track of and for those who like to look, they only have one place to come for my next figure or homemade/custom whatever.

    So without further ado, here are my custom figures starting with the first:

    My first custom was nothing more than a body/head swap, but it made for a unique-looking He-Man. He uses He-Man's head and He-Ro's body and weapons.
    Full-Power He-Man
    Adam has found over the years that he’s still just learning about his powers and abilities, including the ability to draw armors and powers from anyone tied to his Power Sword. The Sorceress told him of his liniage with King Grayskull™ and his ties with the Heroic Cosmic Warrior™, He-Ro™, who gave his ancestor the mystical sword of He. Finding the Book of Living Spells deep within the confines of Castle Grayskull, Adam was able to use the magic therein alongside his Sword’s magic to bring He-Ro’s armor into present Eternia and use it to battle the combined forces of King Hssss™’ Snake Men™, Skeletor®, and Hordak™. Along with He-Ro™’s armor, he also obtained his special Cosmic powers. With his super-charged Power Sword and armor, he is the greatest warrior ever!


    Shadow Beasts colored to be like the FILMation style (Prince Adam No More) and the MYP style (Night of the Shadow Beasts).


    Prince Adam and Preternia Disguise He-Man didn't come with a Sword strap on their backs, so I had to make them myself. They don't match perfectly, but I think they look pretty good.


    I've got a lot of extra heads from my figures as well as custom figure fodder, so to keep them out of the way, I made a display rack. This one was out of acrylic:

    ...But I ran out of room after I collected more figures than I had originally intended. So I had to build one out of green styrofoam, hot glue, and wooden pegs, as well as dressing it up with moss to make it look neat:


    Along with that, I needed a place to put all my half-Swords, so I made a simple Sword display rack out of styrofoam:


    When I got my King Grayskull 2.0, like most people, I had a rolling blue marble on my shelves. I found He-Bro had built a customized Orb Stand on his he-man.us page, and decided to make one for myself. It really lights up too!


    My Mo-Larr vs. Skeletor box was taking up a lot of shelf room, but I didn't want to destroy the scene. So I made a dental chair for Skeletor, a tool holder for Mo-Larr, and a coat/hat rack for Skeletor's Sword and Havoc Staff:


    Before FILMation had to quit He-Man, they had come up with He-Ro, Son of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. I liked the idea of Adam and Teela having a son to carry on the Power Sword tradition, so I made a custom Dare as He-Ro. I didn't make him blonde or add the ponytail. He uses a Bow (sans mustache) head, He-Man body, and customizing the weapons and armor.
    The adopted son of King Adam and Queen Teela, Dare had been raised by a she-bear in the wilds since he was very young, his birth parents unknown even to him. He was found when a scouting party ran into him while he was running away from Skeletor who had just killed his surrogate mother. Skeletor had returned to Eternia and was even more vengeful in his quest to rule Eternia and gain all the knowledge of Castle Grayskull. With Adam needed to head Eternos, and ultimately Eternia itself, a new champion was needed. The Sorceress bequeathed the Sword of He to Dare on his sixteenth birthday, much the same as she had his father. With the Sword, he was able to call upon the powers of Grayskull and became He-Ro, son of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe!


    Vikor needed a new Sword sheath after I gave him the blue-and-silver Sword from the Weapons Pak, so I made one that went around his waist so he could have all 4 of his weapons at the ready on his person at all times:

    In the POG line, He-Ro was originally Gray, a peasant farmer that had been chosen by Eldor to become a great fighter and leader against the Snakemen. Well, officially, Gray has been taken out of the MOTUC line, but in my canon, he remains He-Ro's secret identity. Thus, I had to make my own Gray using a He-Ro head, He-Man body, spear and club from the Weapons Pak, and homemade furry vest and necklace. His story is as follows:
    A peasant farmer who lost his entire family to the Snake Men™ when his father’s tithings weren’t enough to appease King Hssss™, he ran away to hide in the forest and live a life away from the evil that rampaged through Eternia®. Fate, however, had other plans for young Gray. Starting small uprisings against the Snake Men™, he became a most wanted criminal in the eyes of Hssss and his followers and was forced into exile or be destroyed. A hermit duid named Eldor found him and decided that the young man was worth a gift only he could give. Using the Book of Living Spells along with the magical amulet the young man wore around his neck—the only heirloom he had of his family—Eldor transformed Gray into He-Ro™, the most powerful wizard in the universe! His mace transformed into a powerful staff with which he could battle evil warriors. He-Ro™ was called to the stars soon after to become a Cosmic Warrior, but would return to his homeworld fifty years later when Fate would step in once again, bringing both him and the Sword of He to Eternia®.


    Are you tired of Orko's book (or books if you bought more than one) lying around? Will you be getting Shadow Weaver next year? Or did you cut out the cardboard X-Plo-Dar magazine cover from Mo-Larr's dental office floor? Then you need...(*insert drumroll here*)...the Eternian Bookshelf! Able to hold a large number of books, as well as a small number of other small things. Take for instance, Wun-Dar's loaf of bread or Bow's altnerate chest button or harp. Have no place to put them? Try on top of the bookshelf! 2 out of 3 of the bookshelves will let the books stand upright, while the top shelf will let them lean or lay on their sides. Plenty of room for your existing MOTUC books and those to [hopefully] come (ie. Eldor, Batros, Master Sebrian...just to name a hopeful few)!


    I found a website (Shapeways.com) that had a version of Keldor's swords for sale. So I bought one, painted it, and now my Keldor has his 200x-style sword(s)!


    There was also a movie Sword on the same site, so I bought one of those and painted it too. Turned out really nice (although I'm not sure who I will give it to just yet).


    I saw someone on here had made a custom Battle Armor Wun-Dar and liked the idea so much, I made one myself. The Cosmic Enforcer chestplate was made by Fahnengrabbler:


    I bought 2 King Hssss so I could display both versions (snake and humanoid torsos). Then I decided to use the extra snakes from one torso and graft them into the other one so I had a "Super Snake" King Hssss. The bendable snakes made it where he can still hold onto his staff and shield too!


    I've seen a few people making their own "He-Men" that spanned between King Grayskull and Adam, and thought I'd make a few of my own. My first He-Man (not Adam) is a Quadian character I made from Grayskull's hair, the Quadian Guard head, Carnivus' body and armor (modified and repainted), and Adam's Power Sword. I wanted to give him a great Quadian history, so I made him into he who would be King Saz! Using the Filmation The Cat and the Spider story/history and the MYP/MOTUC Carnivus and Quadian people, I created a nice little story for him. *EDIT: gave him the Carnivus sword & shield from WP#3!
    Real Name: Saz Fervelius
    After Vikor perished in battle sending Demo-Man to Despondos, the Goddess needed to find a new guardian of the Sword of He to protect it from evil. Because of his bravery, Saz Fervelius, a Quadian™ warrior, was chosen to guard the halves of the Power Sword from evil forces that sought them out to use against Eternia and the universe. Like Vikor before him, he was given half of the Sword and told to use it for the betterment of Eternia. He became a master of using both the Sword of He and his custom-made curved blade that he favored above all else. The Quadians™, a secretive cat-like people, were seen as outcasts and untrustworthy by humans until Saz and his people captured a demon called the Grimalkin that terrorized Eternia, and forced it into a statue using the powers of the storm. Unfortunately, his favored sword had been broken during the battle, and mysteriously disappeared. He then hid the statue deep in the Temple of the Cat behind many fortifications that would deter anyone from freeing the monster. Soon after, he was crowned King of the Quadians™ and his curved sword was returned to him, reforged with magical properties from an unnamed person. With his newfound powers, he helped make the Quadians™ the strong people they are today and became a legend to both humans and Quadians™ alike!

    there are times he may be engaged in close combat with the enemy or in tight areas.
    don't know if he used a sword or other weapon in the cartoons?

    None that I recall right off, but that doesn't mean "no". Everytime I remember him being in close combat with someone, he used his bow to parry.

    Just so MUCH stuff to look at! Hard to take it all in with one visit to the thread! I'm loving the descriptions/explanations to go with each custom (helps out a lot!).....the areas for weapon and head storage are pretty smart. Gray and the Son of HeMan customs are great!

    I really want to get that HeMan movie sword...I"m seeing it everywhere. You don't know who to give it to? ME.

    Great job, man. It'd be sweet to see these integrated into your collection!
    See ALL of my customs (tons of He-Man, Transformers, JLU, TNBX, Flash Gordon, and more in one organized Gallery):

    Well, feel free to come back as often as you like! I'll be posting more custom figures as I get them done. And thanks. I like making explanations and bios for the characters so they fit in the MOTUC storyline.

    hehe, Well, I meant what figure to give it to. I bought it from Shapeways.com (labeled "Sword of the Ancients"; I also got my Keldor sword--labeled "Sword of Destruction"--from the same site). The direct link to the movie Sword is: http://www.shapeways.com/model/89629...ts.html?gid=mg

    I'll probably post pics of my entire collection soon, so you (and others) can see all the customs interacting with the "official" figures.
