    Mixing MOTUC and Mythic Legions

    Ever since the 80's, I've always wanted a skeleton army for the Lord of Destruction. When I saw the ML kickstarter, I knew I had to pledge. My small order arrived this afternoon and I love it! I only bought skeleton army builders, but if anyone else has other figures they've purchased to mix with classics, I'd love to see some pictures!

    I chucked a quick display together:

    Can't wait for my MLs to get here. I ordered a variety of figures. The skeletons will fit right in. They look perfect next to MOTU. I worry that the regular humans will look comparatively puny next to the massive MOTUC characters, but the fact that they're built using a buck system means that they kind of share an aesthetic with MOTUC, even if it's more conceptual than actual. If that makes sense. I have a migraine and my brain doesn't work today.

    Well done this is fantastic!!!!

    Incredible display and awesome idea!

    Since with Mattel's current situation, it's difficult to see them doing the MVC Skeleton Warriors or the Dark Riders, this is what i' m going to do too! The Mythic Legions are officialy part of my MOTU Universe! And i hope the 4H will pick up the MOTU licence to make this merging official!

    Those are some pictures posted on Instagram, mixing the figures from the two lines, and i have to say that MOTU and Mythic Legions look amazing together, like they belong to the same Universe!

    I love those Warriors, and that small hill display too. Where'd it come from?

    I BOUGHT SKELETONS FOR THIS EXPRESS PURPOSE.

    Seriously though, the skeletons are awesome, and I'm glad to see they work as well as I thought they would! Very much looking forward to my orders.

    These are all amazing! Mine are still all in their packaging--for now. It's great to see how well they mix together! This makes me want to get a few more of the skeleton warriors! I didn't even think about building Skeletor's evil minions with this series! Awesome idea!

    Thanks for sharing pictures, these figures really are fantastic. I want to nab some of those orcs at some point...

    Indeed, I raided my son's playmobil storage for this setup. He was more excited about the skeletons than I was.

    I ordered a lot of the Mythic legions when I first saw them for this exact reason. Once mine arrives in the UK I will get some pics on.

    I was wondering about any mix and match options. Ie can you swop heads??

    These look great. I've been looking at them for a while. I missed the initial role out so now everything is double the price. I might still have to pick up a couple of these!

    did you receive any shipping notice? or any updates at all, other than the Kickstarter page? i'm getting quite frustrated with the lack of information regarding when these are going to be delivered. i also made an order (not ALL IN, which i would have if i knew they were going to service those customers first) that was sizeable and have no idea when i'm supposed to expect these! to make matters worse, i'm in the middle of a chaotic move and so am expecting to lose at least some mail ...

    Not between MOTUC and ML. But ML can switch heads, hands, arms, legs, torsos and armor from one to another!

    Nope, I just came home yesterday and they had been delivered. I was pretty surprise, I had been waiting for a shipping notice.

    Thanks for posting guys. Mine are still in their packaging but stuff like this helps me enjoy them without opening them. If I do open the I'll snap some pics of the skeleton domination of Greyskull.

    It's funny I like the skeleton troop builder the best out of all he skeletons myself. I didn't have enough to actually troop build these after ordering the bulk of the line but D-Nizzy's pics make me want to grab a few more

    Unlike MOTUC figures, these figures are easily re-sealable. I wouldn't worry about keeping them MIB.

    The Orcs and Skeletons make great army builders for Skeletor (especially since MOTUC never got around to the skeletons and orcs that worked for him in previous media)!
    Be sure to read Book of Evil Part 2: The Bells of Doom, only in the He-Man.org Fan Fic & Media forums!

    These all look great, can't wait to get my Skeletons! I'm bummed I didn't do the all in option, everything looked spectacular at PowerCon. I certainly won't miss the next Kickstarter.
