The Character: The action-figure had a twist-waist, which produced a power punch.
The packaging suggested he was a "master of hand-to-hand combat" though we'd argue that the inability to use one of your hands because it's permanently moulded into the shape of a giant metal fist might be something of a handicap.
But we suppose 'master of punching' didn't have quite the same ring to it.
Whatever, Fisto's another ex-villain who is brought to the side of good by He-Man's moralizing. He's generally more comfortable outdoors, and prefers living in the forest to spending any time in the Royal Palace. Gruff and contrary, Fisto is one of the more conflicted heroes in the He-Man universe.
The Actor: Speaking of conflicted, anyone who's seen I'm Still Here will agree that Joaquin Phoenix is the master of playing contrary characters who enjoy spending time outdoors in the presence of a massive beard.
Possible Problems: It's been a while since Phoenix did a blockbuster, and his inevitable Best Actor Oscar for The Master may well prove to be a stumbling block during the negotiation process.
