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

    They are. They're built by a 3D printer and made into plastic form to buy, paint, and add to your collection. I've got a few of them in my collection (and soon to have a few more now!). Got the FILMation He-Man and She-Ra Swords, and the NAHM He-Man Sword from evilmike, and the movie He-Man Sword, and Keldor swords from Battle_Brak.

    Oh cool. I never saw that before. Dang my Skeletor will have so many swords to display him with by the time I get all the swords I want for him and when the Keldor swords arrive.....

    I already ordered one, but when I went back today, the Alcala Skeletor axe was gone from your page. Any idea why?

    Okay, no offense dude, but I did not undersand a word you said there. How can a printer turn something into plastic?
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

    Not a printer....a 3D printer. It is a sculpting machine kinda like a computer lathe. They had one in the movie Jurasic Park 3 to sculpt the 'raptor nasal cavity.

    Oh my!

    I only just discovered your work, evilmike. Beautiful stuff. I MUST have that Alcala Power Sword. That's literally a dream come true for me to see in plastic form. Your Filmation Teela sword was tempting, but now you've left me with no choice but to buy something.

    EVIL Mike indeed.

    LOL, so sorry to tempt you^^. The Alcala style sword came out really well. Can't wait to see it in Alcala Skeletor's hands myself

    HAHA! Sorry about that. I knew what I meant, but I guess I didn't explain it very well. Oh well, I hope the person that answered it after your question helped.

    YAY! Ok, so will I be getting the updated model or the one I ordered prior to?

    The "Enforcer Staff" (8.3''/21 cm) is for the MotUC Figures and the "Enforcer Staff scaled 200X" (6.4''/16,3 cm) is scaled down for the 200X Figures.

    My thoughts exactly.
    If I had to pick only one to own, I'd want Randor's Battle Axe.

    Here's is some stuff I am working on at the moment. Just wanted to show it to you:

    Skeletor's Sword from the Filmation Cartoon:



    A matching Shield for Skeletor with the crossbone design. The base of the shield resembles the shape and size of the Classics He-man shield:





    This one is based on the design of Alfredo Alcala from the Mini Comic "Masks of Power". It is quite hard to find the right shape because it is drawn differently on nearly every page .





    This shield is designed according to the cover of the Mini Comic "The Siege of Avion"





    And here a little try on a possible shield for King Randor. Not sure if I will make some changes to it because there are already so many round shields in MotU



    I would be glad to here your opinions on the stuff.

    Love the curve of the He-Man shield. Maybe decrease the size of the "rivets" by 20% or so?

    The new Alcala sword looks perfect. Love the handle rib details. (Maybe you could re-do the He-Man axe to add these since Mattel omitted them.)

    You might think about rotating the Skeletor shield so that the cross bones look like an "X" when it is clipped on the figure's arm.

    As for the Randor shield, what if you added the "Randor symbol" to the new curved He-man shield disc? I think that might make the symbol be more distinctive as it emerges from the center.

    You might also think about offering weapon "groups" as it seems more economical from a materials standpoint. I'm seeing entire "snap together" robot kits on Shapeways for prices comparable to a single sword and it seemed to save some cost when you combined the Alcala sword halves.

    Thanks for making these!

    Great stuff evilmike. I got my first group of your swords from shapeways, and they look incredible even unpainted. I'm looking forward to these new ones, especially the bone handled sword! If your considering other suggestions......I have wanted a shield with a couple of arrows sticking out of it for ever. Any chance you could make a shield with a few little slots on the front for arrow tips to insert into (along with a few arrows and possibly a quiver too)?
    Keep up the great work!
