About this project
When I was a kid, getting MOTU figures was great, but there were those times I'd wind up with one of the 'compatible with MOTU' figures that flooded the market during the height of He-Man frenzy. Some of those guys were fun in their own right, while some were just pretty bad. But they all had their own charm to them. This figure is my tribute to them. I call him Gakor - the Feral Wizard. My vision of Eternia is more in keeping with the first few mini-comics than with the cartoon or other media, so I imagine there are barbarians, warlords, wizards, mages, and all sorts of various threats to He-Man and his comrades all across the lands. Gakor is one such. He's not so much evil as he's a misanthrope who just wants to be left alone. He'll lash out at any who intrude his space. He does tolerate a small band of other Ferals who look at him as their leader and adviser but that's it.
Head to toe - He-Man figure. I painted the hair black and he then looked too much like Conan for my liking, so I gave him the overused 'blue paint line across the eyes' that was in every sword and sorcery movie of the '80's. Skirt is from Skeletor. Headpiece is the skull from Skeletor's havoc staff with the horns blunted (I had used the tips of them on my Skullgrin custom), back cut off, and jawbone trimmed off. I then attached the strap to hold it on. Staff is from TMNT Donatello with the jawbone attached via string, along with the tooth/claw necklace trimmed from a Movie Bebop's vest.
As always, thanks for looking!
