It’s technically not a flashback if there’s no earlier piece to compare to, but I don’t want to keep switching back and forth from Fridays to Wednesdays for Skitter and Chae so they get the Friday slot too.

So here’s Skitter in the costume I came up for him. I can’t say it was very inspired. It’s an alien leader robe. He looks cute in just about every outfit.

That’s all for this week and for the revisiting of the space age theme. Come back next Friday for the start of the next theme.

Greetings and good Friday to all the Top Men and Top Women out there. I’m having a nice low key morning and it’s time for this week’s mash-up.

Dhalsim is from India and he’s a yoga master. To be honest, I had no idea that yoga skills could translate into fighting technique. Still, Dhalsim was one of my favorite characters in the game even though I wasn’t very good with him. Yoga Flame!

Here’s Skitter all decked out as Dhalsim. Obviously it’s a really simple costume. But with chipmunks being so small, what could possibly have skulls so small for him to wear around his neck?

This is a new piece so there’s no original to compare to. That said, that’s it for this week. Have a great weekend folks!

Friday morning. What’s there to besides get ready for work? Oh yeah! Mash-ups! Let’s get to it.

Badger is one of the criminal kingpins in the ‘verse. He has a love-hate relationship with Serenity and her crew. He hates Mal but he loves the money that only Mal can seem to bring in.

Here’s Skitter as Badger. Doesn’t he just look dapper?

That’s all for this week. One more Firefly piece to go. Any guesses as to who Chae will be dressed up as?

Hey there folks! Time for the last Masters of the Universe mash-up! Let’s get to it!

I really liked Mer-Man for some reason. The figure wasn’t great and had no action feature, but I liked him anyway. Maybe it was the voice in the cartoon that I just thought was nifty. He sounded like he was gargling as he spoke all the time. Oh well. He was one of the first figures to come out and one I never got. When it came time for pooling our figures together for a draft, I always managed to draft him because he just wasn’t that popular.

Here’s Skitter as Mer-Man. I’d imagine he didn’t enjoy dying his fur green to achieve the right look, but it’s the sacrifice one makes for cosplay.

That’s it for Masters of the Universe! We go on to Firefly next week. See you next Friday for the first!

Hello there Top Men and Top Women! It’s mash-up time again and ON time this week. Awesomeness! Click on a pic to make it big.

I loved Sy-Klone as a kid. The figure’s action feature was just really cool. He had a little dial on his back that you could turn to make his upper body spin around like…a cyclone. His colour scheme was also fairly unique. The yellow and blue worked well together for me. He arrived near the end of the line (for me at least) and so I know next to nothing about the character, but the toy was really cool. He may be the last Masters of the Universe figure I bought until the 200X reboot. At least that I remember.

Skitter is here as Sy-Klone. I went for a bit of an action pose. He’s either just finished, or just about to start, spinning.

That’s it for this week. Come back next week for the final Masters of the Universe installment as Skitter takes his villainous turn. See you then!
