Thanks, gentlemen!

These are all incredible! Is there a game they go with or a ruleset to use for play?

There are a couple decent fanmade rulesets floating around in facebook groups and blogs and people have also successfully used 7TV.

Heroic Warriors - Baracus, Heroic Pitier of Fools

Baracus is a former Eternos Guard turned mercenary after getting falsely accused of a crime he didn't commit. With his record for insubordination and starting (and finishing) tavern brawls, he didn't stick around to try and prove his innocence. His heroic nature prevailed though and in time, he crossed path with the Heroic Warriors and joined them on more than one occasion. Baracus goes into battle with his battle armour, golden fist glove and Etherian lasergun. Being the flamboyant character that he is, it is often said he has more bling on him than even King Randor. Only a fool would say that to his face though, as most sensible people know he does not suffer fools lightly...


Baracus, the Heroic Pitier of Fools







I based the character on the Mr. T MotU & WWE crossover figure, with some changes to accomodate what I had at my disposal. I opted to include some influences from his A-Team alter ago, notably the golden chains and the gun. I also took his name from there, after considering other options like Pitior or Warrior T. The figure is a conversion using parts from a Jitsu (body), a Fisto (fist), a Brightmoon Guard (gun) and a head from a Hardcore Miniatures figure. I'm relatively happy with how he came out.


The inspiration for the figure


Twin Fists of Power!


I pity the fool who works for Skeletor!


I pity the fool who gives black people a bad name!


I pity the tin can that's about to feel the crunch of my fist!


I pity the fool who works for a pitance!


I pity the fool who goes up against He-Man!

Any excuse to add Mr. T to anything is a valid one.  :D

Wow. Never knew there was a Mr. T crossover.

You won't be getting him in a Wind Raider anytime soon ;)

Never heard about it, but it should be in everyone’s personal codex for sure.

It's a recent thing where they released these wrestler mashups in the leadup to the release of the new MotU range (Origins), using the same body mould and themed accessories, in a bid to garner interest from newer American generations who still love their wrestlers but don't know what MotU is.

You won't be getting him in a Wind Raider anytime soon ;)

Funny you should mention that, I was considering doing a couple vehicle variants and then almost immediately ruled out the Wind Raider and Skysled options for the same reason. lol

Baracus is awesome!

Dunno who actually came up wit that but it is inspired.  Love your additions to the design. The rest of the WWE crossover figures that I saw were very mediocre.

So, you mentioned a Jitsu figure...

Yes, most of them don't feel quite right to fit into the proper MotU universe but Mister T was close to perfect.

Yes, ironically I did this conversion before painting up the actual Jitsu. He's still in the queue. lol

Re: Masters of the Universe - Tekno with Laser Arm added (update 10/1)

Cosmic Enforcers - Tekno, with Laser Arm

The Cosmic Enforcers are neutral characters, who are guardians tasked with maintaining balance in the Universe. They participate little in conflict but can aid either the heroic or evil sides in their hour of need. The most famous of their kind is Zodac/Zodak, but there are others that exist in canon and beyond. Tekno is one such Enforcer. Equipped with an interchangeable mechanical arm, like Trapjaw, Tekno appears to be a cyborg.



The model is a conversion, based on a privately commissioned model with the addition of a Quest Miniatures Trapjaw arm. For the base colour, grey was chosen to reflect the neutral stance of this faction.



Tekno is a bit of an unusual character in that, although adopted by many fans as another Cosmic Enforcer, he wasn't a real MotU character. In the early 2000s, Argentina toy company Tops Toys released a range of action figures using the vintage MotU moulds, combining and recolouring parts to create all new characters under the Fuerza-T label. Tekno, was one such characters, combining parts from, among others, Zodak, Trapjaw, Man-E-Faces and standard furred boots, with the addition of a smooth version of the furry trunks.

Packaging of the action figure and fantastic fan art by Mike Bock:



You do not belong here, Anti-He-Man!


The balance must be preserved! Turn back or perish, minions of Skeletor!

Cosmic Enforcers - Tekno, with Claw Arm

The Cosmic Enforcer Tekno is a cyborg, having different types of mechanical arms at his disposal, much like the fiend Trap Jaw. Here, he is shown with his Claw Arm.





With Tekno having no fixed background in MotU canon, I'm still undecided whether to make him a full-fledged character or to use him as an armybuilder type grunt, to give some low level warriors to this faction, like with the Eternos guards and Skeletor's various cannon fodder. There is a certain simplicity to the Tekno uniform when compared to other Cosmic Enforcers like Zodac or Strobo.


Claw against claw!


Your swords are no match for my steel claw!


Both my versions of Tekno so far

I am weak in the Motu cannon - I never heard of Tekno.  Now I have been enlightened.  lol   Great work on both of them.
