Custom action figure artist Sillof is back at it with a unique set of “He-Wars” figures that combine characters from Star Wars and He-Man.

It seems like an odd combination at first, but there are a lot of similarities when you think about it. Sillof notes:

Most kids, myself included, did not realize at that time that the Masters of the Universe was essentially a mash up of Conan the Barbarian and Star Wars with some of the style of Frank Frazetta and elements of Flash Gordon (of course Star Wars already owed much to that universe as seen here.) This line is intended as a commentary on the similarities of both toy universes. This in not a mash up or intended be “Look at this character dressed as that character”. Rather, it imagines a world in which the similarities are extended to place the Star Wars archetypes inside the Masters of the Universe world.

I especially like the “He-Wars” version of Darth Vader, which you can check out below.

If Finn went on an adventure in Castle Greyskull, he’d probably end up looking like designer James Freckingham’s “He-Finn The Human.”

Freckingham of Robotic Industries partnered up with Fugi.me to create this He-Man/Adventure Time mash-up figure. He also combined Jake the Dog with Battle Cat—a shape he should totally take on in a future episode.

It seems like practically every character in the Star Wars universe has their own action figure, from Jabba the Hutt’s lackey Salacious Crumb to that guy running through Cloud City carrying an ice-cream maker. There’s one character who probably won’t be getting an official action figure any time soon, though, and that’s ‘Matt the Radar Technician’, aka Kylo Ren as seen in Saturday Night Live‘s fantastic Star Wars / Undercover Boss skit.

Fortunately, dedicated fan and custom toy maker Jim Heston has filled the gap, producing this not-quite-authentic but otherwise impressive-looking action figure of Matt, complete with Kylo Ren’s Lightsaber accessory.

A full picture of the toy can be seen below.

We don’t have much detail on 3A’s Steel Age 1/6th Scale Batman, but designer Ashley Wood did such a good job that I don’t think I need to say more than “you should check out the rest of the pictures”.

There’s a new addition to the Tamashii Nations Star Wars Movie Realization line and he’s armed for battle—with a drum.

The Taikoyaku Stormtrooper is decked in Samurai armor and comes with a traditional Taiko drum, which is used to intimidate and scare the enemy as well as motivate the troops and communicate orders. It also features drumsticks, a conch, and a banner, and all the stunning detail we’ve come to associate with this line.

body-chan-top

The S.H. Figuarts lineup is crammed with awesome figures, but it looks like Bandai is expanding into the art supply realm with these male and female “Body-kun” and “Body-chan” models.

They feature 30 points of articulation (natural poses only) and come with a variety of accessories and parts (including swords and guns). Basically, if you’re looking to draw some anime-style action, these would be a fantastic upgrade over traditional figure models.

Check out some additional pics and details after the break…

This is just funny to me.

That’s right. a fully posable Figma version of Michelangelo’s David now exists. It stands a little under 6-inches tall and comes with alternate hands, sling parts, and moveable eyes.

David vs. Galactus maybe?
