Thanks Deadpool!

Snake Man-At-Arms: Even more exciting than the figure itself is the character and what he brings to the storyline. The idea of Eternia's most loyal guardian bolstering the forces of King Hiss, using every memory, every talent he has against those who once loved him. He makes a terrific Snake Man! So cruel a punishment, and against the man whose daughter loses her mother to the same corrupting force that turned Duncan into Eternia's newest nightmare. It's fun to think of what weaponry and other gadgets he creates for the benefit of evil!

Image
Obey me, minion!

Image
"Duncan...stop... you're my... friend... fight it..."

Image
"I will fight you, and any other force standing between my master and Eternia's rule! Now die!"

Image
*KRACK!*

I have been thinking about this project since I first opened my New Adventures Starship Eternia playset about six months ago. The parts and the stickers you get look different than what you see on the incredible box art. The guns you get are gold, not black; the blue plastic pieces are a much lighter blue, almost turquoise, instead of the dark rich blue appearing on the box; and the sticker set that I received was worn and highly wrinkled.

So I reproduced the stickers in Photoshop, and gave the playset a nice new coat of "True Blue" acrylic paint. I'm still working on producing all of the stickers that belong on the inside of the set (I'm only displaying mine in ship form at least for now since I don't want to damage the new paint), and I do plan on making the entire sticker set available for download, but until then I've decided it's been long enough and I should show off the finished piece. What do you think?

Image
It's comparison time! Here is what you actually get in the box. Many more great photos of this set can be found here: http://www.he-man.org/collecting/toy.php?id=1390.

Image
The box is huge! Here is the artwork that my customized version is based on.

Image
Much happier with the darker shade of blue. The gun on the left came with half of it melted away! Thank goodness for Photoshop. You can see the two red stickers on either side of the cockpit are strikingly different than the originals.

Image
The sticker underneath the big gun in the front is also a different design, and is split into two smaller stickers.

Image
The stickers with three colored squares that are placed in pairs around the outside of the ship are not only quite a bit different than the original design, but are actually a different shape, because the stickers you're given with the set don't fit in place like they should.

Image
Four stickers on the top of the main body are given a yellow color in the original version, and use white instead in this box art rendition.

Image
The numbers around the ship's underbelly are colored black instead of red with this redesign. For reference I used the photos that appear on the playset's box.

Image
I bought a spare MOTUC Wind Raider flight stand, but this playset's just too heavy for it!

Here are a few reduced samples of the stickers. The sticker sheets will include both the official sticker set and the new box art stickers so you can choose which way you want to display your own playset.

Introducing Mix-N-Match, Master of Shapeshifting!

Image
Mix-N-Match, looking very "toyetic".

Image
The bio ties in this new character's background as an extension to one of my favorite Masters of the Universe cartoon episodes "Orko's Missing Magic (Season One, Episode 45).

Image

Image

Image

Image
Inspiration came from one of my favorite Marvel comic characters, Super Skrull (http://images.wikia.com/marvel/es/images/5/58/Super-skrull-army.jpg).

Image

Image
Ready for his closeup
Image

Image

Petteri on Facebook noticed this new figure reminded him of some vintage MOTU artwork!

Today we're finally getting a chance to purchase Vykron on the Matty store, and in my excitement I've developed a new bio that in my opinion better reflects the character, partly because I can't see a space suit and U.S. army tank being used in a Vine Jungle arena in Eternia's past. I also felt he could be a lot more fun in the storyline of modern Eternia, alive and in one piece, instead of being discarded as Gygor chow.
Inspiration for this bio came from the cartoon episode "Pawns of the Game Master", I had a lot of fun tying in his bio to that of Captain Glenn. Because I have so much more story to fit into the bio, I may very well write three bios in all, one for each of his packaging options, just as Queen Marlena and Captain Glenn were given. In either case I feel this bio's story makes a great jumping off point for our imaginations to explore Vykron's life and deeds on the magical world of Eternia.
