Fang Man comes with three accessories. First is his double pronged weapon that he appeared with in his Filmation episode. It has a neat futuristic design to it, so it’s kind of odd to see a dragon man wielding it. I don’t remember him actually using it in the episode, so I don’t know exactly what it’s supposed to do. But it does look like an electric prod of some sort.
Fang Man’s second accessory is the Wheel of Infinity, which also appeared in the same episode. Once the Wheel starts spinning it can’t be stopped, so Skeletor decided to travel back in time and place it where Castle Grayskull would one day stand. This way the Wheel would eventually destroy the castle with an explosion of energy when it reached its critical point in the future. It’s probably one of the more interesting ideas that Skeletor has ever devised, even if it does have a few holes.
Fang Man’s last accessory is the Sword of the Ancients. This artifact came from the episode Masks of Power. Unfortunately the episode is incredibly vague about what the sword can do. It’s apparently very powerful, and unbeknownst to Skeletor, it was buried deep in the recesses of Snake Mountain long ago. The Sword begins to talk when He-Man picks it up, and he is able to join its powers with his own sword. So it’s definitely a cool artifact to have, even if we don’t know what it really does.
All around Fang Man turned out to be a pretty great figure. He received a nice amount of detail and way more engineering than I expected. This really brings some nice diversity to my muscle men shelves. I’m also always thrilled to get more Eternian artifacts, and this time we got two! My future Castle Grayskull is going to have a pretty snazzy trophy room by the time it gets here.
