Mattel really focused on reusing molds in the vintage MOTU line (they continue to do so still) and one of the best examples of taking existing molds to make a new character is Faker. Just like the vintage toy, Faker is a simple repaint of He-Man with Skeletor's armor and a robotic sticker on his chest. Well, we now get a tampograph rather than a traditional sticker, but it's largely the same concept. Faker is a popular guy, though, and there's something about the color scheme that's really appealing. He's a repaint, yeah, but he's a new character for Masters of the Universe Origins as well. Faker is part of the fifth series of Origins figures and is the second to last figure we need to recreate the vintage 1983 lineup in the series (c'mon, Mekaneck! We need you soon!) Let's check out Faker after the break...
