Wrapping Up 2021: Faker from Masters of the Universe: Revelation Eternia Minis by Mattel

  I just reviewed the Metallic Faker figure so I might as well take a quick look at the standard Faker minifigure from Masters of the Universe: Revelation Eternia Minis. For not having that much screen time during the series Mattel sure went pretty heavy on Faker releases, didn't they? Faker's a popular and beloved villain despite usually just being a blue He-man with orange hair. Revelation went in a bit different direction, though, which was kind of cool. Let's take a look at the mini Faker after the break...


The Facts:

Height: 2 1/8ths inches

Articulation: Swivel waist, swivel shoulders, and a ball jointed head.

Accessories: Sword

Non-Scalper Price: $5-$6 dollars

* The standard Faker is on the left while the Metallic Faker is on the right. They're just paint variants but it is interesting to note that while the Metallic Faker has very silvery plastic for his body the standard Faker's metal body is more of a bluish-gray. 

The Positives:

* This version of Faker depicts the evil doppelganger of He-Man in the middle of transforming into He-Man, or perhaps losing his disguise. The effect is created simply through paint effects but it looks pretty good. Faker's a really sharp looking minifigure with more paint details than you might expect on a figure this size.

* Faker's revealed head looks like a robot rather than just like He-Man and it's kind of unusual. He's got a few paint hits to show off his dark eyes and his white teeth, which are locked in a grimace. 

* These little guys have four points of articulation which may not seem like a lot except you gotta consider they're only a little over 2 inches tall. That's not bad for that scale! They're very durable little figures and would probably fit in well with lines like Imaginext and the Hasbro Heroes figures, so if you have a little one who's into MOTU these could be some decent starter toys. They're fun to play with and have a lot of shelf presence!

* Faker comes with the Power Sword. Well, it's obviously not the real Power Sword, but just a copy.

I really like the look of this little guy, maybe even a bit more than the all metallic version. It's simple but the effect of the disguise in mid-transformation is quite cool and the colors are rather eye catching. Faker's a fun little figure who gets a Great from me. He's colorful, cool, and has a pretty neat little (fake) Power Sword. It's a unique look for the character and makes for a fun addition to the Faker collection.

  1. Hey, Barbecue17! You forgot to mention that he has the big bracer on his left forearm and a clip on the back of his harness. Stuff that He-man doesn't have in mini form. Love your blog!

    1. Thanks! That's a good catch on the bracer detail. The Eternia Minis He-Man just has the basic wrist cuffs, doesn't he?

  2. Oh wait, my mistake. There's no clip on his back. I wish Mattel had done that tho. But the big bracer makes me want to swap arms with a regular He-man for a classic look.


What'chu talkin' 'bout?
