I changed them from Shadow Men to Shadow Troopers because of what happened in the book "A Trap for He-man" so now there are Shadow women & children. I painted the heads & clubs, which I bought from Orsogranito.

The Shadow Men were created by Count Marzo & lived in the sunless Valley of Osgor until He-man let the sun in, killing them all. The Shadow Men's great strength was their ability to see in the dark. But light meant agony to the Shadow Men and this was their great weakness. The super sensitive ears of the Shadow Men make them perfect spies. Skeletor went to the Kingdom Of Dyperia & permanently transformed all the inhabitants into his new Shadow Troopers destroying the kingdom forever. Skeletor improved Marzo's spell by making the Shadow Troopers able to survive light inflicted injuries. They now live in the dark corners of Snake Mountain, spying for him all over Eternia.

Ditztroyer Cape

I wanted the Roton pilot, Ditztroyer, to be able to sit in the Roton, but his cape isn't flexible. So I made him a new one that keeps the functionality of his current cape.

This is the original cape: Slide8 This is the new flexible cape: Slide9 The chest piece & the staff holder are both still there. I just cut the original cape in the back & glued the new one underneath the plastic shoulder part. Slide10 Now he can sit in the Roton with the Lid on: Slide4 Here are the two capes: Slide7 Here is the original cape with the original model-kit 20130616z 017 Even with Ditztroyer at the Roton controls, he still can't beat Tuskador!

The Lizardmen appeared in the mini-comic "The Fastest Draw in the Universe" that was packaged with Rio-Blast. I gave Kobra Kahn a snake staff in red, like his gun. I also made Princess Misand, Princess Rana & the Brightmoon guards.

The savage Lizardmen are from a tribe of Reptons that live near the Sands of Fire. Unlike the Heroic Lizard Man, they are proud of their Snake Men heritage & follow Kobra Kahn's orders because they worship Serpos & wish to join King Hsss. The Lizardmen hate technology & under Skeletor's command attack Speleans & Caligars.
When the Lizardmen discovered that King Hsss didn't consider them pure, they helped Kobra Kahn get promoted over Tung Lashor by not fighting in the battle against the Kulataks. When the Spell of Separation was cast during the Second Ultimate Battleground, the Lizardmen were not split apart because they had evolved pure reptilian DNA.

I doubt any more Galactic Guardians (Protectors) will be made, so this is my custom Spinwit. I also made the Doom Troopers, Battleground Catra & Clawdeen. He has a trident gun, but it's only in a couple of pictures.


Heroic Tornado-Spinning Pilot
A tough talking Star Pilot who always has a joke to tell over the sub-space freighter channel. But when it comes down to a fight, he means serious business. His two-fisted tornado spin can knock out a whole squadron of Evil Mutants.
He pilots cargo through evil enemy lines and delivers much needed supplies to He-man and the Galactic Guardians. He and his good buddy Tuskador, the trader, make un unbeatable pair even though they usually don't agree.
He can handle the Battle Bird & win Bolajet races. He is believed to be the legendary champion of the planet Zil but Spinwit uses his Spin winges to protect the Tri-Solar System from Skeletor, Flogg & Catra.

doomtroopers

The Doom Troopers appear in the mini-comic "A Clash of Arms" & are pretty plain with just grey steel armor. Masters of The Universe Classics has a lot of details so I added some details like leaving the black straps & purple bat on the battle armor. I also gave them matching black strap legs & the monster feet.

Here is the panel where He-Man shoots one of them:

Their weapons are Savage Long Barrel Blaster Pistols from the vintage Castle Grayskull cardboard weapons rack. I bought them from DJ Force. I also customized Princess Misand & the Eternian Soldiers.

When King Randor created the Mystic Wall of separation between the Light & Dark Hemispheres, many Eternians were trapped in the Dark Hemisphere to live under Skeletor's rule. Those abandoned humans came to depend on The Overlord of Evil & joined him due to their hatred of the Light Hemisphere. Many humans from cities such as Foodar, Oberon & Arcadia enlisted to become Skeletor's Doom Troopers. The Doom Troopers enforce Skeletor's will across the Dark Hemisphere, collect taxes & maintain order at various locations like The Circle of Doom in Targa.
