**NOTE: Although the Baby Skeletor doll was released via Matty Collector, it is not part of the Masters of the Universe Classics collection**Baby Skeletor Figure
The Evil Lord of Destruction goes back in time… and turns into an itty bitty blue baby! This tale of a tyrannical tot, an unexpected detour, and buffalo wings comes from the twisted minds at one of our favorite stop-motion TV shows, and was the inspiration for this little guy. A must-have for true MOTUC fans, Baby Skeletor measures 12” tall (a total of 15” when sitting on his evil royal potty, including the potty) with articulation at the legs, shoulders and neck, and a face only a mother could… nope, sorry… even she thinks he’s hideous. The childish commander and his commode arrive in a unique closed-box throne package, and comes with a removable “Born to Rule” baby t-shirt and his Havoc Staff rattle. Baby Skeletor may seem harmless, but remember… 80% of his body weight is in his horrible head!
Note: This 12-inch doll is not in scale with the Masters of the Universe Classics toyline.
Flying Fists He-Man vs. Terror Claws SkeletorMasters Of The Universe ClassicsClub Eternia 3rd Quarterly Item – October 2015
The battle for Eternia rages, and Flying Fists He-Man has a little something extra up his sleeve. More precisely, he's got a removable fist accessory at the end of his sleeve, and he uses it to send Skelly a powerful message. But Terror Claws Skeletor is not about to hand over his power… he meets the challenge with two impressive oversized claws. Who will win this this epic battle?.
Flying Fists He-ManHeroic Leader With Arm-Swinging ActionReal Name: Adam, Of The House Of Randor
After his trip to Preternia, He-Man returned to his own time period with the hidden knowledge of the Snakemen's one true weakness. Together, with the new Sorceress and his twin sister, Adora, He-Man and the Renegade Masters of the Universe planned a final strike against all who opposed freedom. The heroes forged an uneasy alliance with Skeletor and his Evil Warriors, and clashed against the Snakemen and Horde warriors on the fields of Central Tower during the Second Ultimate Battleground. Powered by the Orb of Grayskull, Flying Fists He-Man repelled his serpentine villains with his fist-flinging power!
Terror Claws Skeletor Evil Leader With Claw-Swinging Action Real Name: Keldor, Of The House Of Miro
In preparation for the Second Ultimate Battleground, Skeletor commissioned a new armor upgrade from his chief weapons master, Spikor. Arming himself with Terror Claws, Skeletor leapt into battle against the Snake Men, Horde Army and the Masters of the Universe. In single combat he slew Gygor, Lord of the Vine Jungle, and eventually fought and mortally wounded his former master. Finishing Hordak off with a magical spell which drained his essence, Skeletor learned of the might of the Horde Empire, and quickly turned his ambitions to the stars. After the battle, Skeletor left Eternia behind in favor of a grander prize - as ruler of the entire Universe!
Real Name: Keldor™ of the House of Miro
As the ruler of Eternia® following Randor’s banishment, Skeletor® created a new magical armor infused with an Eternian Dragon, giving him the power to paralyze his enemies at first glance. His rule was cut short, however, when Skeletor’s former master Hordak® returned from Despondos™ with the help of Evil-Lyn®. Hordak® not only overthrew Skeletor®, but drove the Snake Men™ into hibernation. Forced into a war on multiple fronts, Skeletor® continued to lead his Evil Warriors into battle, often having to fight side-by-side with his former enemies – the now renegade Masters of the Universe®. Perched on his master’s armor, the Evil Dragon “pet” of Skeletor® stops his enemies cold with his paralyzing jet spray of venom.
Battle Armor Skeletor bio
Real Name: Keldor of the House of Miro.
Using dark magic taught by Hordak, Skeletor occasionally creates new forms of armor and weapons to outmaneuver the Masters of the Universe. His BATTLE ARMOR was first created to help Skeletor penetrate through the Mystic Wall in order to kidnap Adora and secretly clone the Sorceress of Grayskull. The original armor was destroyed by Oo-larr after three strikes with his mighty battle axe, sending Skeletor back behind the Wall. Skeletor reformed the armor 20 years later in an effort to combat a similar battle suit now worn by He-Man. Although lacking the mystic qualities of the original, his new armor was stronger and more powerful. Skeletor, Evil Lord of Destruction is now protected by his magic BATTLE ARMOR!

Club Eternia Figure, August 2014
Sometimes you’ve just gotta branch out. One planet isn’t enough for this greedy guy… he wants a much bigger piece of the cosmic pie. Representing his healed techno virus body, this figure comes with a removable helmet, cosmic Havoc Staff, and an all-new “battle damage” head for Faker. Skeletor Bio Real Name: Keldor of the House of Miro Wounded by Hordak’s final buzz saw attack at the end of the Second Ultimate Battleground, the victorious Skeletor mended his body with a techno virus from Preternia. Having learned of the might of the Horde Empire, he abandoned Eternia in search of a grander prize – the entire Universe! Finding a Laser Gate at the far end of his own galaxy, he passed through it to the Tri Solar System just above the planet Denebria. It was here he recruited the Horde’s Mutant Army in a plan to lead them in mutiny against the Empire. But Skeletor was followed by He-Man, She-Ra and many of the Masters of the Universe who had themselves allied with the Galactic Protectors. Skeletor now fights a new intergalactic battle; to rule the universe and to destroy He-Man once and for all!
Ultimate Skeletor, the Evil Lord of Destruction, is a deluxe, 7” tall, highly articulated and fully posable action figure including a host of accessories and interchangeable parts. Each super detailed Ultimates Skeletor is sculpted by the Four Horsemen and comes packaged in a brand new blister package featuring new artwork inspired by the iconic vintage Masters of the Universe toys.
Ultimate Skeletor includes:
Meet Mo-Larr, defender of tooth, justice, and the Eternian way! Mo-Larr was featured in the famous (infamous?) episode featured on the DVD release of Robot Chicken Season 2 where he chased down Skeletor and relieved him of an impacted wisdom tooth, sans numbing agent. Skeletor features a new head with missing tooth, Havok Staff, Power Sword, and Half Power Sword. Mo-Larr, Eternian Dentist, comes with five assorted dental tools, including &$#@%! drill and floss.
Mo-LarrReal Name: Dr. Moe LarrsteinWhen an impacted wisdom tooth or an infected molar threatens the oral health of anyone in the Dark or Light Hemispheres, Mo-Larr, Eternian Dentist, is called! Relentlessly dedicated to his craft, Mo-Larr has been known to travel to the gates of Snake Mountain™ itself to insist his clients keep their appointments! Whether hero or villain, it's all the same to Mo-Larr — the sworn enemy of all Eternian cavities!
SkeletorReal Name: KeldorAlthough lacking any skin, Skeletor's bony exterior has left him open to oral decay and poor dental hygiene. When his wails of pain become too much, his servants Grizzlor and Beast Man have been known to call upon the only expert in Eternia who can help- Mo-Larr, Eternian Dentist! Quick to forget, Skeletor often loses track of his appointments, distracted by his massage chair and Eternian periodical collection.
Laser Light Skeletor&Laser Power He-Man
Heroic Master of Light EnergyEvil Master of Light Energy Masters Of The Universe ClassicsClub Eternia Quarterly Figure – December 2015
These figures shed a little more light on the ongoing battle between He-Man and Skeletor. The classic characters from the vintage line have been newly sculpted with features that light up when a power button is pushed. Laser Power He-Man arrives with a Power Sword that becomes illuminated, and can either be held or stored in his power pack. Laser Light Skeletor has glowing eyes and right forearm, and a translucent Havoc Staff that can be held or stored. This set also includes issues #7 and #8 of the mini comic series.
Laser Light SkeletorReal Name: Keldor of the Tri-Solar System
After taking command of the Unnamed One's Revenge Squad, Skeletor led his all new group of Evil Warriors against the Trollan’s defensive stronghold. Breaking into the Temple of Power using Horde Prime's Vortex Key, Skeletor absorbed ultimate power from the Star Tree, gaining his Laser Light abilities. Preparing to flee, Skeletor was confronted by his old enemy He-Man on the Jaw Bridge Gate. In their climatic final duel, Skeletor was defeated when He-Man used the Power of Grayskull to separate Keldor from the demon that kept him alive. With a clear mind, in what he thought was his dying breath, Keldor gave his nephew the Vortex Key asking him to protect Eternia as the true ruler and heir to the throne.
Laser Power He-ManReal Name: Adam of the House of Randor
Real Name: Adam of the House of RandorIn the midst of their final battle with Horde Prime, He-Man and Skeletor simultaneously grabbed the Vortex Key, transporting them to Trolla. Finding himself on a world turned upside down, He-Man allied himself with the remaining Defenders of Trollan while Skeletor took command of the Unnamed One's Revenge Squad, which was responsible for decimating much of the planet. Eventually, He-Man and Skeletor met on the Jaw Bridge of the great Temple of Power. Though both were enhanced by the Star Tree’s power and the Aura of the Gods, it was He-Man who became the ultimate victor, using the Sword of He to separate Keldor from Demo-man, seemingly ending the threat of Skeletor forever.
Spring-loaded waist. By pressing a lever on the side of his belt, Skeletor will perform a spinning lunge, flinging an eight-bladed disk from his launcher towards the enemy. He also has a "light-pipe" feature in the back of his helmet, which makes his eyes glow eerily. A cool figure, the best of the three NA Skeletors.Accessories:- 2 disks of doom- psychotronic disk launcher- wrist clip (for using disk as shield)
Attention: we are missing images for this page.Please add pictures if you have them.
A spring-loaded draw-back arm allows Skeletor to hurl his devastating four-bladed axe. His skull-faced chest armor glows-in-the-dark, and he has long black hair, "rooted" by way of a separate "scalp" piece.Accessories:- quadro-blade throwing axe- deflector shield
When his waist is turned, he will raise his Skull Staff to block an attack. Accessories: - helmet - cape - skull staff
...the power to be supreme...
the power to be almighty...
the power to be MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!!!
Finally, two figures which have been at the top of everyone's request-list, we proudly present the vintage style versions of the MOTU 1987 Movie's HE-MAN and SKELETOR!
Presented in a handsome carded two-pack, vintage-styled interpretations of Langella's Skeletor and Lundgren's He-Man are finally realized in glorious plastic.
Skeletor features a brand new head sculpt, sculpted armor, havoc staff and his power sword. His cape and hood are removable and can drape over the entire figure or be pulled back for that regal look like in the movie. Skeletor also can be handled with confidence as the only paint application is on his face. His armor and black accoutrements are cast in black-colored plastic and his body parts are cast in a metallic silvery-blue-black colored plastic.
He-Man features a scaled-up version of the Laser Power He-Man head, sculpted armor, retooled arms, legs, trunks, pistol, a holster and of course, his power sword. What's more, He-Man's chest is a completely new sculpt: the pectorals, abs, everything (including of course the armor) is all a new original sculpt to give it a real feeling of those later vintage figures. The armor is sculpted into the figure which features a holster on the back to allow storage of the power sword! A cloth cape with gold trimming finishes off the look.
As an homage to the original He-Man and Skeletor figures, we've given both figures a movie-inspired power sword sculpt in the classic colors: gray and purple. Both figures feature working power punches so you can have them battle just like in the movie! There are 9 pieces of original artwork along with a mini fold-out of original poster art.

Here we see a very interesting case of how much an early concept can evolve during development, and finished toy or character.The first concept-sketch of Skeletor features a far, far more savage version of the now-infamous Lord of Destruction. He has a big muscular hunched back look, big beard, a strange gemmed little crown-like hat, a morning-star mace, scimitar-like sword, and his trademark Havoc-staff is nowhere to be seen.In fact, judging from all things, including the armour and overall look, at this stage, he and Beastman where one! The more Savage features would soon be spun off and redeveloped into Skeletors most faithful follower, the savage Beastman.In the second image, we see a more developed, more or less finished version of Skeletor. Now he's sporting pretty much all of his finished features, his classic Havoc staff, bone armour and head-cloak. The differences to the Skeletor we all know and love, are small. His Havoc Staff was apparently planned to have a feature where the ram-skull could pop off and then be used as a sort of elongated morning star, still attached with a rope to the shaft of the staff. His face seems to have somewhat more skin and dried-out flesh left on it too. And finally, his lower arms are different, having a bony deteriorated, half-rotten appearance, instead of the finalized toys spiky fore-arms.No doubt the original fore-arms where deemed a bit "too strong" for young children at the time...Images courtesy of Matt Jozwiak & Mark Taylor
Here we have an early hand-made prototype of Skeletor. His look is somewhere in between his concept-drawing and the finished toy. His body is not yet based on the finalized male mold for the toyline, but instead on the early wax-prototype of the early He-man that sported a helmet.This results in his body having more realistic proportions and a less hunched back and crouched look. His face has more flesh left on it ( sporting a strange grin almost) and his feet are bare, and human-looking, like in his concept-sketch. His staff is also looking a bit rushed, not quite finished in time. The shaft of the Havoc Staff is replaced by a simple bronze-rod.Image courtesy of Matt Jozwiak & Mark Taylor
