    Custom MOTUC Character : Ar-Mor

    Ar-Mor
    Cowardly Master of Defense

    Bio: Armak Orlo, raised in the palace of eternia as a page. Orlo eventually schemed his way into the ranks of the guardsman seeking personal power, despite being a complete coward. Using underhanded tactics he worked his way up in the ranks of Eternian palace guardsman until one night when Hordak appeared and offered him riches in exchange for the guardsman turning a blind eye whenever Hordak required entry to the Palace, in exchange for the promise of great power once Hordak ruled Eternia.
    The Palace of Eternia was secretly invaded on many occasions by Hordaks forces, and on one such occasion the newborn princess Adora was even kidnapped by Hordak along with his pupil Skeletor. Hordak escaped with the princess, but Skeletor had been captured.
    Armak’s implication in the kidnapping was soon discovered by a guardsman named Duncan. Terrified, Orlo fled in a panic from the palace grounds following the recently freed Skeletor. Once he had caught up with him. Armak begged Skeletor for his protection; who himself had only recently bargained for his own freedom from the Eternian dungeons with information about Hordak; in exchange for his help, Skeletor demanded lifelong servitude.
    Using his magic, Skeletor helped forge an near unbreakable suit of armor from a small supply of Eternium in the armory of snake mountain. Unknown to Armak, Skeletor placed an enchantment upon the suit that ensured his loyalty as long as he wears the armor. Now serving as an enforcer for Skeletor in the Dark lands , and calling himself Ar-Mor, he serves Skeletor by keeping small weak villages in line.


    UPDATED:
    Here is how Ar-Mor Currently now looks thanks to fan ideas on weapons I used for him...



    Below is images of how he USED to look originally, decided to hide the crappy old ones in a spoiler tag, lol...

    Yeah the story is pretty sweet ( cause if I were king I'd guard my children a little too heavy for someone like skeletor or Hordak to get in) nice custom BTW too.

    This is an AWESOME custom!! I like how Ar-Mor's bio ties in with Skeletor, Hordak and the kidnapping of Adora. What does Ar-Mor look like without the helmet?

    I actually have a head without the mouth guard attached to the helmet made the same way to show off his face; not pictured yet; that I painted up to be his normal head.
    He basically looks as as shown.
    Ar-Mor being so vain wears a mask to protect his face under it; the black part that you can see inside it; which is designed with a open mouth area... very batman style... an thats about it.

    Asthetically speaking, I find this to be one of the most stunning parts use/paint deco combos that I've seen. But the back story is basically genius. acceptional work. Fantastic.

    Great custom! the bio is very interesting and fitting, I definitely like it. As a suggestion I would say that maybe a weapon like a sword or a morningstar will fit better.

    Awesome job, it looks great! So did you use acrylic paints that are available at Wal-Mart to paint the entire figure?

    Very cool! This idea (and the same name) is what I was thinking for the create a character contest last year. Love it!

    Personally I had a different helmet and thought about using King Hiss / DraegoMan arms and legs with DraegoMan / He-Ro shins. Still like the way yours turned out!
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!
