* On the far left is the 2014 MOTU Minis Faker which is a complete different figure from this new Faker (middle left). This Faker uses the body from the MOTU Eternia Minis Skeletor and the limbs from the MOTU Eternia Minis He-Man.
* Combine the body from Skeletor, the limbs of He-Man, and a new headsculpt, add in a wacky blue and orange color scheme, and you have Faker! Faker might be the greatest action figure repaint of all time and Mattel has captured him well in minifigure form. He feels very true to the vintage toy here, though heavily stylized of course. He really looks great in the style of this line. The massive jaw and musclebound proportions fit Faker quite well.
* I really like Faker's headsculpt, particularly his facial expression. He looks like He-Man but much nastier!
* Faker comes with an orange ax. It's the same as the ax that comes with Horde Zombie He-Man only, you know, orange instead of green.
While he's not a new figure to the Minis scale (since Mattel did release him in the 2014 series) Faker is a popular character and it's surprising that Mattel made another version. This one isn't as good as the earlier figure, though he is less expensive. The paint errors and the inability to stand on Snake Mountain are frustrating, though. I've been noticing more little problems with the series 2 figures than the series 1 had. Maybe these ones got rushed out a bit? He's still a Good and a 1/2 minifigure, though, and hopefully you'll get one with better paintwork.
