Swiftwind by Dj-Becka Swiftwind by Dj-Becka
Here's my custom Swiftwind from She-Ra princess of power!
The horse is the 1980' toy refresh!!

Original horse: [link]

I don't know why, but it's strange that the company who produce those toy made 5 horses (maby more) but they never realese Swiftwind like in the TV show...you know, the right colors...

Who cares now, i own now a real Swiftwind!!!:)
I'm very proud of it, i want that from so far ago!!

You can see the details of the helmet and the wings with transparency.

I love this! Did you have to split him open to redo his tail and mane? I've been looking through old She-Ra stuff today and I can't understand something... Swiftwind was just the way you have him here but why were all the toys with a pink body? lol

Excellent work! You're really very talented and I'd be proud to own one of these and showcase him :thumbsup:

I've always preferred the Filmation cartoon version of Swiftwind rather than the comic book or Mattel toy version. I love unicorns and when I first saw this cartoon as a child I was literally carried away by the idea that he had wings and that he could fly. Before that, the only winged horse I'd known about was Pegasus but he's not a unicorn.

Keep up the good work! Have you done a custom of Frosta's horse Winter? The comic books show him as blue and the toy line introduced him with removable wings.

You know, it always irritated me that the comic books all featured the major characters with steeds but in the Filmation cartoon, the only ones they included were Spirit/Swiftwind, Frosta's horse Winter, Bow's horse Arrow and a very brief glimpse of Castaspella's horse (whose name I don't know) in the "Laughing Dragon" Episode. Poor Glimmer only ever got around as pillion behind one or the other of them unless she used her own light energy to transport herself. As for Queen Angella, well, she has wings to fly with but what happens when she's tired and her wings hurt from flapping up & down for long distances? There can't always be a thermal updraft to ride.

There is a marketplace forum at the he-man.org message boards [link] but if you're not already a member, you would have to register to post messages and stuff...the good news is that membership is free. There's always ebay as well, mostly people sell through ebay.

Thats really awesome!

I'm really curious on how you get the hair back on a horse like that (the "base figure" looks similar to Barbies horse Prancer)

I have the orange transparent with yellw hair, the purple transparent with blue hair, 2 pink transparent with pink hair, an solid pearl pink one and I had a blue pearl one... was there more? All of mine were from garage sales (my favorite finds!) so they are all missing the wings :(
