SHOCK TROOPER : Evil Drone Soldier of Skeletor!
The “crack troops” of Skeletor from the 1987 movie are now realized as vintage-styled action figures! Special attention to reference photos from the original costume and armor was made in order to achieve an authentically retro interpretation. Most exciting of all is the newly-engineered and original action feature: strike his chest plate and he literally flies apart! It’s like what we got to do with the Horde Trooper, but to the next level! With his movie-inspired laser rifle, the ranks of the movie villains are quickly growing!
Barbarossa Art Customs: The Big Bang Project:
The Big Bang Project is my effort to add to the original line of MOTU through custom-crafted art pieces (i.e., custom action figures) which fit into an imaginary history of what might have happened had the line continued.
Authenticity is my goal, so for every element of design or fabrication I do my best to keep to the spirit of the original line. “How would it have been if they’d made it back in the late 80’s?” is the question I always keep in mind. I want to create figures which fit seamlessly with the vintage figures and create the characters we all wished to see back when we were kids. It’s an artistic and nostalgic joy to bring back those memories as well as create new ones, the way that only finding a new MOTU figure on the pegs at the local toy store could do!
