Now, as I’ve mentioned eleventy billion times on this site, I’ve been wanting a Battle Armor Faker since being a wee tot! At IAT, we first brought him up back in January of last year and got some positive fan response about the idea. Apparently, it was just the right kind! I’m super-excited to finally see this figure and it wouldn’t have happened without all of the fans that supported it! So, to all of our readers and any He-Fans around the world who chimed in for this figure here, at the Org, MattyCollector, or the MOTU site of your choice. Thank you.
Also a shout out to the folks at Mattel and the Four Horsemen for listening to the fans. Faker’s weapons, Battleground Teela, Keldor’s dual sword, and now Battle Armor Faker. Thanks for listening!
We did it!
