    Since everyone else is showing theirs!
    This was my entry into the Procustomizers "Bad Guy Goes Good" contest.
    He was fun to do, and once I got the idea, went fairly quickly. I switched my usual background hoping people wouldn't know it was my project. Did it work?

    Here is the back story on him:
    In a last ditch effort to wrest control of Grayskull from the Sorceress, Skeletor faces off with her in one on one combat. At the end of the battle the Sorceress lay broken in front of Skeletor upon the drawbridge of the great castle. Little did Skeletor know that the Sorceress had planned to have her mortal vessel destroyed, so that her immortal essence could possess his body. Skeletor's will was no match for the goddess', and she now inhabits his form. Her noble spirit caused some physical changes to the dark master, and her knowledge of the true nature of Grayskull and Eternia have opened Skeletor's eyes to the error of his evil ways. With both the Sorceress' and Skeletor's knowledge now inhabiting one body, He-Man finds himself side by side with the most powerful ally he has ever known. And he knows he will need it as Hordak and his massive Evil Horde prepare an all out assault on Eternia!
    There was great work all around in the contest, and as always, it was great fun to be a part of!

    I always felt that it was more natural that Skeletor would live in Castle Greyskull due to the big giant skull in front of it (at least Snake men were given snake mountain in the modern show).

    That is simply amazing. I am on a bit of a He-Man kick right now with the Classic figures being released. I think we need you to start making the Classic figures instead of the Four Horsemen.

    how are you supposed to get an "equal opportunity" contest when everyone identifies their piece??? Makes no sense to me...

    Nice work as always though SB, a wonderful crossover w/ a Mcfarlane toy...I still question the validity of the contest...

    The contest was over as of Saturday night. The voting was done then, so showing them now doesn't tip it one way or the other. It is anonymous until then.
    Thanks for the kind words everyone! Everyone's entries were really cool, and it is always interesting to see which ones pull in the votes. For the last 2 contests I have tried very hard not to do TF's. It has been fun to explore other genres!
