    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 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".

    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...

    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.

    Terror Claws. Those things could do some real damage, and they had a great Psycho inspired advert as well.

    I have to go with B.A.Skeletor.I've always liked the B.A.figures especially the color combo Mattel used on B.A.Skeletor.It was a neat feature for it's time.

    Had to vote for the only version that I had as a kid, Dragon Blaster! followed closely by the original. My brother had the original and Terror Claws (which we made into a beast-like creature, not Skeletor ) Can't wait for Classics Battle Armor in February! . Never had a Scare Glow although I would have loved him... Skeleton's are awesome! (Also, I consider him a totally different character and always have....)

    I never had any variant versions or even knew about their existence in the 80's or the 90's. I only ever had the original version (about 5-6 of them), so it's the version I like the most.
