Oh my, I have not posted a Faker Blog entry in a while. I must be ill! Faker's appearance in the season one He-Man episode "The Shaping Staff" is a mixed one. It is great to see the villain show up, but we are all disappointed when we see him sporting the exact same colors as He-Man. In my previous Blog entries regarding this villain I have explained why this was the case, but looking at the script for "The Shaping Staff" brings about some interesting facts! In the script by Paul Dini Faker was supposed to be the same color as his toy, hence Skeletor's line to him regarding the Sorceress, "In this dim light she'll think you're He-Man." Also Faker was supposed to be an existing character, not just a moment of magic on Skeletor's part; this was changed at the very last minute, which is why his appearance in the episode feels so rushed!
