    Yeah, Dragon Blaster. I love that dragon. Although his minicomic is quite hokey...you can read about that in "Mini-Comic Hilarity"

    Um.. Scare Glow's not a Skeletor variant. He's his own character.

    Actually, he was originally advertised as "Evil Ghost of Skeletor" - while not a variant in the truest sense of the word, he is/was supposed to be the same character...

    I voted for Terror claws! I loved that one. As for the worst... Battle Armor was the stupidest design ever. I remember seeing them on the shelves for months and months because nobody wanted it.

    I voted for Laser Light ...
    I think it is one one the most beautifull fig of the vintage serie...
    He's scary and dark..seems to be some king of necomancien...

    And i also think he's the most interesting variation, becuause for me he is the most different from the original version...

    I think that description has been misinterpreted by the fandom in general. I'm pretty sure they mean "Evil Ghost who Works for Skeletor", not "Lingering Spirit of Dead Skeletor".

    Quite so, many people think Scareglow is the ghost of Skeletor (this is what I was told and lead to believe as well.) But I think the strongest evidence against this is the fact that Faker is known as Evil Robot of Skeletor. Or something to that effect.

    Also in the mini-comic, Scareglow seems to have no idea who Skeletor is and if he does, he does not seem to care much!

    But back on topic, it's Laser Light for me all the way.

    I love the Battle Armor figs, but I'd have to go with Dragon Blaster as my favorite. Neat concept, cool accessories, and I love the thought of Skeletor having a pet dragon.

    I wonder if Panthor got jealous?

    Scareglow Is Not Skeletor! He Is A Ghost That Skeletor Has Control Of.

    Oh damn, you beat me to it! Yes, I was also about to say that if Scare Glow were really the personification of Skeletor as a ghost then Faker is somehow a robot Skeletor. This is of course NOT the case, as he is simply a robot in Skeletor's service. Much as Scare Glow is a ghost in Skelly's service. And much how if there were ever a toy made of my dog - with the packaging reading as "Dog of Discosupafly", then that would mean he was a dog in my service, as opposed to some freaky dog version of myself.
    Methinks an adjustment of the voting options is in order. NO Scare Glow, in other words.

    At any rate, my fav. is Terror Claws Skeletor. Yes, Dragon Blaster Skeletron ( ) is just too too cute, and the spray is lots of fun, but good ol' T.C just looks so much different to all the other version that he sticks out in my mind best. It's that funky metallic purple mid-riff, I swear! And the white skull smack-bang in the middle of it! It's .. so ... hypnotising.... Seriously, I used to just stare at that skull in the middle of shiny purple goodness all day long as a kid. Add to that the groovin' claws, the little snappy dragon boned weapon, and a really good mini-comic (much more mature than the others) and you're on a winner.

    Speaking of said mini-comic, "The Terror Claws STRIKE!" has to be one of the best comics of the entire classic MOTU series. For one thing, it helped to flesh out the character of Spikor by showing him as the resident blacksmith. Very simple, very nice. This is of course to mention nothing of the simply fantastic art work within! Considering how downright lame that artwork got sometimes (see any of the original Horde member comics as an example) and you'll see the difference.
    It also thrilled me to bits seeing He-Man get a lot more aggressive in this issue than pretty much any other comic in the line. Seeing a multiple-armed He-Man punching through the "fires of Skeletor" (and no, that doesn't mean Skeletor had become fire...) with rage, then lifting Skelz up with a look of utter contempt was just the shizzle! GLEEP! And finally, this entire comic had a very gloomy, downbeat feel to it. Even on the final page you felt that Skeletor would be the death of He-Man someday - and the look on He-Man's face as he turned his back all but confirmed it.

    Man, a truly perfect comic for a truly perfect toy.

    Dragon Blaster is my favorite Skely variant. I used to play for hours with the chains and his spray shooting dragon.My cousin and I used to shoot water at the same time to He-Man with Kobra Khan and DB skeletor. You have no idea how many times DB Skeletor kicked some MOTU's ass.

    Loved the armor and the idea of having a Dragon as a pet was too cool!!

    Terrorc Claws Skeletor is a very close second, he is awesome as well but not as much as good'ol DB!!

    BATTLE ARMOR gets my vote. Playability on this variant was fantastic, and the design looked like something I could imagine SKELETOR actually wearing. Don't get me wrong, I love the concept and accessories that accompanied TERROR CLAWS, but I just die a little inside every time I see poor SKELETOR wearing that purple sports-bra.

    I went for Laser Light Skeletor!

    I never had him as a kid, but when Emiliano gave me the figure (for winning his website's competition) I thought it was the best variant...I'd long since stopped playing with figures, but I loved (and still do) the light up feature...It is so cool to see Skeletor's eyes and arm glow in darkness...

    ...yeah, I'm easily pleased!

    I went with battle armor. He was the only Skeletor variant I had, so he holds a special place. I also just thought the feature was really cool as a kid.

    I like Terror Claws Skelly best. He came out at about the time Freddy Krueger was ripping it up on the big screen in the Nightmare on Elm Street films. Just the fact that he had claws similar to Freddy made him scary!

    It's interesting to see how close DB and TC skeletor's are doing on this poll.

    i REALLY didn't mean to bring up the Scare Glow debate ALL over again...personally, i DON'T view him as a version of Skeletor...but, as logical as that is for SOME of us, there are those that have grown up accepting the notion that Scare Glow is indeed somehow or another Skeletor's ACTUAL ghost from the future, i don't get it either... but they are toys and you can use your imagination to come up with what you want...there are MANY different continuities within MOTU, so there is room for a section of fandom to "play" that Scare Glow IS Skeletor...

    it's really OK guys...let people play with their toys...

    No offense, but you may have some serious catching up to do...

    Include Scare Glow on this poll and you might as well include Faker on the 'He-Man variants' poll...

    When I was a kid I found Battle Armor endless fun. It worked so well with the power punch most figures had.

    I gotta go with Dragon Blaster. The idea of a chained dragon on Skeletor's back is just too cool.
    I do have a MIB Laser Light on the way but I'm note sure I dig a cyber Skeletor!
