    "The Return of Faker"

    As some of you may have heard, Dušan Mitrovic and I have been working on a new episode of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe titled "The Return of Faker" - The full-length twenty-minute cartoon is animated in the Filmation style (even including a moral at the end), and we're recreating frame by frame every single sequence that you'll see on screen! :)

    I'll start off by answering a few probable questions:

    * For the time being, this is an UNOFFICIAL fan cartoon

    * We hope that when it's completed, it'll be supported OFFICIALLY, and distributed accordingly

    * We aim to complete it by early 2018

    * It is being animated in HD resolution

    * The voices have all be "recorded"


    Feel free to discuss and ask questions - However, we won't SPOIL anything! :)

    The above image is an actual frame from the opening scene featuring Skeletor and Faker! :)

    -------------------------
    On Saturday September 9th at 8.45pm "The Return of Faker" panel at Power-Con will showcase two newly completed scenes from the episode, as well as detail how the project is being created by Dusan Mitrovic and I...

    Awesome!!!


    Hee hee. Sounds like you've been bombarded by fans who want to be voice actors. I kind of suspected that might happen.

    Fantastic. Talk about a passion project. Brings back powerful memories of early-80s after school TV-viewing.

    Any chance they'll resurrect Orko's commercial bumpers!!!???

    Bravo on the clip guys! So amazing!! I can't wait to see this masterpiece in full! From the occasional sneak peeks I've been fortunate enough to see and hear, I will say that it literally feels like James and Dušan reached into the 80's, took hold of a piece of Filmation magic, and brought it into the present. I actually teared up a little with nostalgia listening to the audio for it because it really does feel just like a brand new Filmation episode.

    Without trying to sound insulting, this already feels loads more authentic than Super 7's attempt.

    You said ask questions. Did you actually Get Allen Oppenheimer to voice Skeletor? If not you got a really great impression. Who voiced faker? I almost thought you somehow edited some pre-existing lines from Lou Scheimer. Very much like a voice and effect he'd do.

    Really happy to see the "Real" Faker in Filmation, and what seems to be a very good throwback episode. cannot wait.

    I agree. While I appreciated their efforts, that short and the subsequent figures to go with it feel a bit too "fan-made".
    This Faker episode looks and feels LEGIT!

    Well, we are considering restoring the Orko bumpers...and using one I own, but that was NEVER actually shown! :)

    THANK YOU for the incredibly kind words, Danielle - Wait until you see the footage at Power-Con! :) - Lee Clevenger said something similar in that he teared up during the first appearance of the Sorceress - And I totally get that! :)

    Basically, ALL of the dialogue in the episode is taken from existing episodes...but manipulated in ways that it feels new - The second scene featuring the Evil Warriors...you'll swear it was all newly recorded - As for Faker's voice...that's all He-Man dialogue...down-pitched and echoed to make it sound robotic! :)

    Oh my, this really looks and sounds great, cant wait to see the whole episode.

    Is this the same Faker as in the episode "The shaping staff" or is he a new model?

    So more or less the typical cast except for Tri-Klops and of course Faker

    I´m looking forward to those cameos as well.

    All in all very exciting stuff!
    *Toy version Catra *Sagitar *Drissi *Lizorr *Zilora *Battle Armor Queen Marlena *Pebb-Liss(Minicomic Comet Warrior) *Lady Slither

    He's a new model! :) - Don't ask me why he's blue though...

    I really wanted to keep it to the core cast - So many people hear "new episode" and immediately want King Hiss, Stinkor, Keldor, etc. - My attitude is that I want this to feel as "natural" an episode as possible - If that makes sense! :)

    Amazing! If that doesn't pass for the real thing, then I'm Abraham Lincoln. Great work!
