* On the left is the Leo Faker while on the right is the standard ReAction Faker release. In terms of the mold, the only difference is that the Leo Faker uses Skeletor's torso rather than the unique torso the standard figure has. Other than that, the only differences are paint related.
* Leo Faker looks great! There aren't any new parts here but the figure is quite accurate to the vintage Leo Toys figure. The biggest difference that the Leo Faker figure had was the presence of Skeletor's armored belt, which the standard Faker did not have. It's a cool look for Faker, even if it's not that unique. The Leo Toys Faker also didn't have the electronics panel that the vintage Faker had on his chest, so the absence of that detail is warranted here.
* The most striking feature of the Leo Toys Faker is the red eyes surrounded by black. It's a really creepy look on the vintage toy and Super7 captured it well. I really wish Super7 would have gotten the chance to either release this figure in MOTUC or, at least, to release an accessory set with the repainted head, orange Skeletor armor, and an orange Havoc Staff.
* While the vintage figure doesn't have the wrist bracers painted, I really like the fact that they're painted here. It makes the figure look just a little bit better than if they hadn't.
* Leo Faker comes with an orange copy of the Power Sword, which is the same as the sword that came with He-Man. It's a bit oversized but it matches the vintage look well and fits in Faker's right hand snugly.
* The card art on most ReAction figures released by Super7 is beautiful and their Masters of the Universe line is no exception. Faker features the same beautiful illustration from the standard figure, illustrated by Jason Edmiston, but now he's got the creepy eyes and more orange painted details. To preserve the card I actually made a slit in the top of the blister so I can slide the figure in and out. It work great and allows the figure to be displayed inside and outside of the card. I've got mine hanging on a metal pegboard similar to what you'd see in a retail store!
* Besides the Skeletor waist armor and the crazy eyes, the third biggest difference between the Leo Faker and the standard Faker figure is that the Leo Faker came with an orange version of the Havoc Staff. I really wish Super7 had included an orange Havoc Staff as an accessory. I would have loved if Faker had come with both but if I had to choose one accessory to come with the figure, I would have went with the more unique orange Havoc Staff.
