very clever idea for the feet.
this is my latest custom. Barefoot He-man from the first Alcala mini comic.
Main body - parts of He-Ro and Prince Adam
Head - He-Man
Loincloth & shins - Demo-Man
Feet - Moss-Man (flocking removed and modeled fur sanded down)
Spear - 3d modeled and printed by shapeways
I would really have liked to give him bare forearms but unfortunately I saw no possibility doing these in a good looking way.
very clever idea for the feet.
I like it,now we have a better idea about how Oo-Larr will be done.
Where are they? Where are your friends now? Tell me about the loneliess of good, He-Man. Is it equal to the loneliness of evil?
Demo-Man's forearms could have worked. his bracers seem removable all that was needed was to sculpt a bit to cover the gap.
FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Crita is coming... Now I NEED SONGSTER! The Awesometastic Bard!
very well done my friend.
Oh MOTU, Why Can't I Quit You!
My Trader Feedback thread:

I love an all inclusive canon!
Excellently done! Longer hair and bare forearms, and he'd be perfect!

If I may give a suggestion:
Use an exacto knife, to cut the details of the bracers, and fill the "innies" with sculpey (if any).
Use sandpaper to even the areas. And use Vallejo Paint to match the rest of the skin. Might want to mix the color until you get the right tone. This is the tricky part of the suggestion, but I believe in what you are doing, and this might work.
Still, it's an awesome figure.
Very cool idea. Looks great!
LOL....cut his toenails
THIS is an awesome idea. He looks PERFECT. Picture please with the Alcala Skeletor, if you're up for it

Nicely done. As much as I love the Filmation stuff, I agree the idea of He-Man being a barbarian savage makes far more sense than the whole 'secret identity' thing. And this, my friend, is one such kickass idea. Here's hoping Mattel makes this guy a future creative consultant.
It might be easier to trim down a gloved forearm a la Mo-Larr than to sand and fill a bracer. But yes, 3d modeling may work too. You've done hands, why not try forearms!
Well, well, well done!
