I've been knocking out some sketch cards in my spare time and I'm on a Masters of the Universe kick. Cause He-Man rocks!

Great looking card! Nice hatching and color, I am not familiar with the character but like the card!

This character was a weird one. I don't really remember him that much in the cartoon, so his action figure didn't really matter much to me. I believe that the way he looked in the cartoon was way different than how his toy looked. Maybe the cartoon to toy purchasing habit was true back in the 80's!

An awesome pic my friend, Faker looks awesome. You know in the 200X series had they done another season they would have introduced Faker in the show. I really wish they would have done season 3 then we would have seen the return of Hordak (as you can guess Hordak is one of my favorite characters :lol: )

I know. I am glad that we did get one episode with Hordak, but in the end, I don't really think it was enough. They did try to tease with Faker in an early episode of the MYP cartoon. I'll have to look up which episode, but Man-at-arms has a sparring robot that he sent into the Snake Mountain region to throw Skeletor off, since Prince Adam was being held hostage. When the robot is defeated by Skeletor's cronies, the He-Man optic skin turns blue before disappearing. I thought that was a nice tip of the hat to Faker. But, I would have liked to see him actually as Faker.

I agree I wish they would have introduced the Horde before the Snakemen. They could have done Kobra Khan releasing Rattlor knowing that Hordak would soon be released and he wanted to prove him to the Snakemen as a great warrior by trying stop Hordak's return to ensure Hiss's own escape come season three. Yes, it was the Courage of Adam we see the sparring but that would have become Faker. :D

If they would have done another season, we would have had an evil horde season. How do you feel about the movie news of Grayskull?

I know that would have been awesome. I hadn't heard what's going with the Grayskull movie?

They named a director about two weeks ago and they are green lighting the movie to be made. The director is the same as the director of the G.I.Joe Retaliation movie. I'm kind of excited. I do wonder if the movie gets made, would we get a movie toy line in stores? I would LOVE that!

That would be awesome to have MOTU toys back in the stores (I just hope Mattel doesn't mess it up)
