Hello and welcome back to Flashback Friday where Friday is full of deja vu. And that’s a good thing!

Cammy was added to Street Fighter II: The New Warriors. Why they didn’t just make the move to Street Fighter III is beyond me. She’s British special forces…or something like that.

Here’s Zoë returning as Cammy. The biggest challenge was fitting the beret on her head. Once again I had to resort to covering up one ear with it.

Here’s the comparison to the original. This is one of the pieces I was most looking forward to redoing. The dimensions of the original were just terrible. The idea of giving Zoë abs didn’t really work out either.

That’s all for this week. More fighting in the streets next week.

Everybody having a good Friday so far? Well it’s about to get sooper better with a flashback!

Zoë is Serenity’s no-nonsense first mate. She’s married to its pilot, Wash (no, his name isn’t Wash Washburne…it’s a nickname). She’s tough as nails and smart to boot. Her and Mal went through the war together and she seems to have come out of it a little less broken than he did.

Here’s Zoë as Zoë again. I love how that turned out. Hair is always tricky with Zoë. It’s the ears obviously. I like the posing here.

Here’s a comparison to the original mash-up. The original was done near the end of the series and I was winding down and combined with the fact that Zoë was far from one of my favorite characters, I feel like I didn’t give it my all. That’s why I decided to tackle her near the beginning of the set this time, I think to much better results (comparative to how each respective set came out, because the whole point is that the new piece be better than the original).

That’s all for this week. More ‘fly next week!

Hey there Top Men and Top Women. Glad to have you back for another flashback! Remember you can click on the pictures to see them enlarged.

Webstor had one of my favorite action features. He had a backpack that contained some kind of pulley system so when you pulled on the string from the bottom, he would climb up the length of the string. Really cool. He was a spider creature. I don’t remember that he ever got featured in the cartoon so his character was a little lacking other than just being the spider villain. Still, he was one of my favorite figures just because of the feature.

Zoë’s here as Webstor. She’s about to throw her grappling hook so she can scale a wall. Are the red eyes creepy? If she had more of a forehead, I would have more eyes to replicate the figure.

Here’s the comparison to the original mash-up. The original was my least favorite of the set. The idea behind the pose was good, but it just didn’t turn out the way I wanted. That’s why I went with a simpler pose this time around. It turned out SOOOOO much better.

That’s all for this week. It’s also the last Masters of the Universe mash-up. We have four all-new pieces coming up so Skitter and Chae can join in the fun. Any guesses as to which character’s they’ll be portraying? It’s two heroes and two villains.
