    MotUC Custom Skeletor Shield & Filmation Sword

    Hey guys,

    I have finally managed to paint my new items and take some fotos!

    Some time ago fellow Orgers MldMnrdReporter and MasterCollector mentioned the sword SKeletor had once used in the Filmation cartoon. I had completely forgotten about it but agreed that it could be a really cool design.



    I went with a color scheme that matches the normal Skeletor weapons because I thought it would fit better than the grey/silver from the FIlmation epsiode.

    Together with it I want to show you my own design of a shield for Skeletor. The base design is the same as the normal Classics He-Man shield but I added the crossbone symbol and replaced the rivets with cones. I imitated the clip to attach it to the arm and it works really well. I went with a color scheme matching the sword but I could also imagine to do one for Faker or perhaps for Keldor with the Bones in silver and a red circle in the middle.

    But enough words. Here are the pics:



    Forgive me that the paintjob on the backside is so sloppy. At first I did not want to paint it at all...











    Let me know what you think!

    It might be in the Dragon's Gift? Or possibly the Diamond Ray of Disappearance? I think it's the Dragon's Gift.

    It's the Dragon's Gift. I just finished watching the episode.

    I think it looks great. My only gripe is it's size. Just add an extra inch and it would be perfect.
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    I got the four I ordered in today. From left to right: Skeletor's bone sword, He-Man's Alacala Power Sword, New Adventure He-Man's updated Power Sword, and New Adventure She-Ra's updated Power Sword.

    I took a different route & made the bones on Skeletor's bone sword more bone-like (sounds redundant, I know). I also painted one half the Alcala Sword black the other gray (to distinguish the light & dark halves). I used the detailing on the Galatic Swords to add something special to He-Man and She-Ra's; not sure I like the yellow blade on She-Ra's though. I may change it later.

    Here's the black side.

    Here it is so you can see the "halves".

    And yes, I do have figures (or ideas for figures) to go with these. I'll post pics of them with their weapons once the figures are done in my custom figures thread for those who'll want to see them.

    Hey Evil Mike! I'm just finally getting around to painting the bone sword for ole' Skelly. Please, tell me what color/brand paints you used. Especially, the main color purple used for the shield and bones on the sword. I'm literally starting to paint it now. Thanks
    P.S.-I may have to order one of those shields for my Skeletor, too
