Screeech was yet another favorite among the Masters of the Universe figures I had as a child. I really liked the dark blue and purple coloring - the perfect "evil" bird! I especially enjoyed the artwork on the Screeech package, which depicted Screeech flying over ominous wastelands of Eternia with demonic glowing eyes. This box art conjured up all sorts of ideas that Screeech was by no means an ordinary bird!
This custom figure and custom packaging are an homage to the original toy and packaging - both of which I first came to enjoy so many years ago. Instead of totally updating the packaging to match the new toy package, I decided to create something that was unique and new, yet captured the essence of the original from the eighties, maintaining the basic design scheme from the classic package I created the updated package incorporating the new logo, type and artwork.
I completed this custom Screeech and Package prior to the debut Official Screech Mini-Statue (to be packaged with the forthcoming Evil-Lyn in Wave 5)... I am happy to see that what I came up with is similar.
This new official version has one robotic leg, which is a nod the the Filmation version of Screeech, which was an entirely robotic bird! My version can serve as Screeech before what may have been an unpleasant encounter with Battle Cat!
