Here are some recent photos. I have recently purchased some “Vykron” barbarian armor. But I have a few other pics to share as well. And a little commentary.
When I first got Battleground Teela, I thought right away that she fit in with Vikor. I like putting Vikor’s cape on her. Now that Vikor is wearing the Vykron armor, Teela will be wearing that a lot more often.
Vykron’s armor is just two shin guards and a brown He-Man armor, with white fur on the back that is reminsicent of the the beloved “Ice Armor He-Man.” there was also a helmet, that has straight black hair sculpted, and looks OK on Battleground Teela. (Remember, I modded my BG Teela, removing her hair so that she could wear the snake armor.) I don’t want to show you that pic of her wearing it because it doesn’t fit snuggly. I will have to do some sanding on her head. In fact, underneath the “wig,” is very unsightly, and looking at her wearing the Snake Armor from behind is a little disturbing.
This picture says “Hey, look at me too!” Vikor really just has too much of a peasant face. That would really be my only complaint about the figure. If I sold them all, I think I would keep him behind. (Probably He-Man and Skeletor, Battlecat and Panthor too.)
One of my original ideas when I bought the Griffin was that Vikor could ride on it. I’m not willing to mod his loin cloth.
But…Teela looks even better on the Griffin! check her out with the red axe and shield. This could absolutely be a janky MTG card.
Switching gears…I have really enjoyed the “Battle Ram” blog. If you don’t read that, you need too, oh Hub City Geeks. It was that awesome blog that inspired me to take a few more pics of my own Battle Ram.
The pic below is a scene almost out of Mike Young’s cartoon. Remember when Skeletor pretty much beat down Duncan? But you can see, I have some story built in here. Skeletor has the Havoc staff aimed at the back of his head. There has clearly been a tough battle, armor pieces scattered all around. But of course, Skeletor cheated, by bringing in Beast Man. You can see, though, Man-At-Arms is reaching for his pistol…
So there you go! Keep reading, Hub City Geeks. My next post will hopefully be the unboxing of the Japanese Atraxa, Praetor’s Voice deck. I’ve decided I am going to get some transparent sleeves, and write the english text on them in Sharpy, to help me be able to play it. That process will help me understand the cards a little better, I think, before I review.
