It happens. There's also a different styled Talon Fighter.
Regarding eyes on the attack-trac, if there aren’t any anywhere else, you can clearly see eyes on the head of the eagle (or whatever that is) on the sides right in front of the grips.
How did you remove the yellow paint from He-Man's boots? I tried using acetone and melted the plastic. I tried using 91% isopropyl alcohol and it wasn't strong enough to remove the paint.

I soaked them overnight, upside down with just the top fur submerged, in 91 iso and then gave them a bath with some soap in the sink. Next I filled up a small amount off water. Then using qtips and acetone applied I would rub the area, started with flat top, and when the paint would start to move around I would use a wet wipe to clean it. I wiped quite often to make sure the acetone wasn't on long enough to visual damage the boot.
Also I know you know everything I just typed and I hope I didn't insult your intelligence. It was just easier for me to convey by going step by step.
Did you get an Origins Leo Faker? They stole it from my cart!!!!!
Thanks for the step by step instructions. I have a few extra He-Men I can work with so I can try it out.
I was not able to get Leo Faker. Like you, I had it in my cart but lost it before I could complete the order. To make things worse, I lost out on Leo Faker a 2nd time that same day. I was checking BBTS all day long, figuring there might be some returns. I happened to catch it at just the right time to add it to my cart but lost it before completing check out.
Made some custom Skeletors. Kit based the super7 and origins to make a Filmation Skeletor. Also repainted the vintage head to look like my vintage one.

Is that a twinkle in his eye?
Could Little Fakers be far behind?
Did that today and, after applying a lot of scary pressure, I finally got the stuck joints to move. They're still very stiff, but at least I can move them now if I want to. So ta for that.
The figure also has a very floppy wrist joint. With staff in hand the weight of the skull topping it makes his wrist rotate. I did put some clear nail polish on it but then got worried it might react badly with the plastic since I don't know what kind of plastic this figure uses and so quickly wiped it off.
So, just to check, is it okay to put nail polish on Rev Skeletor's wrist joint post?
Can any one confirm that this is a flash back to the Adam/He-Man set from SDCC?
I do not think you’ll get a reaction from the nail polish BUT I’ve used this for quite sometime.

Nail polish is my 3rd choice after Kiki and Future floor polish.
WOW! Your vintage repaint is GREAT!
I second this. Kiki's is the best. One bottle goes along way.
Would love to know what that process involved in making that Filmation Skeletor because it looks amazing! Just what I’d want if Origins actually did Filmation designs.
I took the head, armor and weapons from the Super7 vintage Skeletor and the Boots from the Rise of Evil set.
I drilled out the bottom of the head to fit over the neck and then drilled down the middle to make the socket for the ball joint.
Then I masked off the skull face and separated the feet from the calf's. Sprayed all the armor, the hood and boots with Tamiya Purple. Clear coated with Dupli-color Perfect Match Clear. The Matte coated with Mr Color Topcoat. I'm not sure why the boots are coming out darker in the picture, but they match in person. The paint rubbed off the ankle joint, but it doesn't look bad to me, especially since you can't see it most of the time.
EDIT: I forgot to add I sanded off the forearm fins and used higher and higher grit sandpaper and a nail buffer until they matched the finish of the figure
