About this project
Looking for some more customs to do, I came across the Fighting Foe Men. I didn't collect MOTU Classics or really keep up on them, so I was unfamiliar with these characters when I found them in a list of MOTU characters. However, I liked the look of the figures so wanted to add them to my MC:MOTU universe. I'm not using them as created, though. I may keep the names: Dawg-O-Tor, Shield Maiden Sherrilynn, and Ditztroyer but I'll be using D-O-T and Sherrilynn as heroic characters and Ditztroyer as one of Skeletor's lackeys. If you don't know the backstory on them (as I didn't before yesterday): In the '80's, Monogram made a set of licensed Snap-Tite models based off the Talon Fighter, Attak Trak, and Roton. The box art for the models had generic pilots for the vehicles instead of existing MOTU characters. During the MOTU Classics run, They took these characters and made them a team of pirates known as the Fighting Foe Men, who happened to be the creators of the vehicles they piloted (Dawg-O-Tor -- Talon Fighter, Sherrilynn -- Attak Trak, Ditztroyer -- Roton) and wound up working for Hordak. 1) I don't like the name "Fighting Foe Men" (so lame, and supposedly, almost the name of MOTU before they came up with MOTU -- I doubt it would have been nearly so popular with that name) 2) D-O-T and the shield maiden are too heroic looking to be villains in the simplistic designs of the MOTU characters (even King Hiss' 'heroic' look was kind of evil looking) 3) I have my own canon I use for MOTU and they fit in better as individuals rather than a team. I may mock up some heads and armor/emblems to 3D print and replace the sculpting, but I'm happy with them for now. Noticed in the pics I need to touch up some paint. It's hard to see in person but in the larger size of the pics, it's more noticeable.
Dawg-O-Tor: Head to toe - He-Man. Sculpted on chest armor, sculpted on helmet.
Shield Maiden Sherrilynn: Head to toe - Teela. Sculpted on chest armor, sculpted on helmet, sculpted on fur diaper.
Ditztroyer: Head to toe - Skeletor with one modification -- Cut Skeletor's face off, cut Faker's face off a spare Faker head and glued it on Skeletor's head (you can see the leftovers in the last pic). Sculpted the emblem over Skeletor's harness. Cut straps off harness. Made cape out of grocery bag.
Thanks for looking!
