Who's a cute little Trollan?

I'd like to introduce you to my favorite Trollan from The Masters of the Universe series. Orko helped serve as the goofy comedic wizard with backfiring spells.



Originally from another dimension where showing your face is the equivalent to making out, Orko came to Eternia via a cosmic storm and found a home with Prince Adam and the royal family. Orko is only one of a few people trusted with the knowledge of Prince Adam's alterego - the infamous He-Man (whom I had a crush on for several years during my childhood).

After many months of being on the backburner, I finally made him! Here's my ~9" tall plushie version of Orko:



I'm super pleased with the way he came out. And this inspires me to make some other 80s cartoons characters. Any requests/ideas?

I'm not exactly sure what the next step is with Orko and Etsy. Should I sell a finished product? Or try to write up a nice pattern to sell to other crafters? Or let him be my own little treasure?

I was and will always be a child of the 80s!
