I'm so pleased both pieces sold out - I had too much fun with the rainbow-y color palette, I think I will absolutely be revisiting it again!! Huge thanks to @Gallery1988 and @CuddlyRigorMortis - there are still some awesome pieces left from other artists in the show available on #Gallery1988 's website ❤️💙 #JoysOfToys#FauxTaxidermy#ValencyGenis#Mattel#FisherPrice
Another look at my custom BATMAN cape. It can completely open up like in the comics to display the pleats within.
You'll never guess what the cape is made from. Here's a hint: it's waterproof. #customfigures#batman#dccomics#mattel
Laser Light Skeletor, along with Laser Power He-Man, were the real final variants of the MotU toyline. Sadly, neither of them were released in the US. They popped up in Italy, but not in great numbers, which makes them two of the rarest MotU figures.
If it wasn't obvious, LL Skeletor is very much the inspiration for New Adventures Skeletor. They share the same cyborg characteristics (and LL Skelly even shares parts with NA Skelly, in Classics), and they both have similarly teched-out skulls, on the back of their heads. The big differences are color, design, and the distinct and classic purple hood, that was tossed out for New Adventures, in place of a helmet.
LL Skeletor works like LP He-Man, in that you press a button to light up his weapon. The difference is that, while the light source for He-Man is his sword, the light source for Skeletor is his right hand. The staff doesn't light up completely, but it's a cool effect nonetheless. The Classics figure shares his effects with He-Man as well, in that you can press the button to turn it on for a minute, or hold it down for a flashing effect.
Classics LL Skeletor suffers from the gigantic backpack that holds his batteries. Since his feature is hard-wired into his body, you can't remove the backpack or bend his right arm at the elbow (nor is his head on a ball joint, though it can be turned). He's very back-heavy and must be posed just so, to get him to stand.
That said...I freaking love this figure. He's the best of the two, and you don't even notice the inability to move his right elbow, because they still allowed the shoulder a full range of movement. His pose options are all imposing (once he's balanced) and his light up feature is just BAD. ASS. The red havoc staff is like a dream accessory, as well. This is just everything I want in my favorite villain in the universe. Awesome set, go find one. #toysandtomfoolery#toys#actionfigures#motu#motuc#mastersoftheuniverse#mattel#heman#skeletor#laserlightskeletor#alexxmotu
Laser Power He-Man, the real final variant in the vintage line - just not in the US. This one showed up in Italy (if I'm not mistaken) along with the giants Tytus and Megator. He, along with Laser Light Skeletor, holds the title of rarest MotU figure (if you don't count Wonder Bread He-Man). The feature is simple: his sword lights up!
LP He-Man is sort of the missing link between MotU and New Adventures, at least in terms of design. The glowing greenish yellow sword is the biggest clue, otherwise, before New Adventures, this was as futuristic as He-Man could get!
There was no minicomic for him, and the package just showed how to work him, so there's no explanation for his newfound need for a giant backpack that powers his new sword. The Classics bio works one out, but it's a little convoluted, and not worth recounting here.
The Classics figure works the same as the vintage figure, with a giant backpack that houses batteries, a cord running to his big 'ol sword, and a button on the pack that you push to light up the sword. This figure could have been worked out better. His hands aren't big enough to securely hold his huge-ass sword, the armor on his right arm pops off easily, and the thick, blue cable running from his sword to the giant pack is ugly, compared to the translucent green cable the Horsemen suggested in their prototype.
Still...I find myself endeared to the figure. I have a rubber band holding his sword in his hand, so I can do what I need, and the light up feature is fun and works well. There are even two modes - press the button once to turn it on (it glows for a decent amount of time; more than enough to take a picture or two), press it again to turn it off, or hold it down for a few seconds for a flashing effect. Beyond the effect, the figure is just a sculpted masterpiece. The new head is amazing, and looks a bit like an older He-Man, or works well as a movie version of him. You can also remove the backpack to reveal some jump-jets built into the back of his harness! For all his little annoyances, he still impresses me every time I pose him around. #toysandtomfoolery#toys#actionfigures#motu#motuc#mastersoftheuniverse#mattel#heman
