    should skeletors face be yellow or some other color

    yes yellow - if you pick this please state why
    no, some other color - if you pick this please state why


    I picked yellow.. simple reason, filmation yellow is an integral piece of his character and he wouldn't be the same without it.

    i wish there was an "indifferent" option in the poll.

    It's not a really big issue to me one way or another. Yellow can work fine and look good if it is a really toned down yellow.. i can sorta imagine bones yellowing, even though i don't think they do.

    On the other hand, if it is not yellow, it wouldn't bother me either.

    I agreed with half your statement! Well about the colors of the bone.

    Just wondering what you want his eyes to be? Or do you prefer plain black sockets?

    wow.. I actually like the Red Glowing sockets..

    The mini comic Skeletor was scary.. Maybe not realistic but they were warriors from another planet so they weren't really supposed the be realistic by earth standards.

    Anyone else remember mini comic skeletor?
    The face was all haggard and yellow and the red eye sockets were really creepy.

    I like the glow too. I prefer it though if it wasn't always glowing. Maybe when he gets mad or something.

    I am not too concerned with realism when it comes to skeletor... i mean, the man has no face. Realistically, he should be screaming in agony all the time... even more realistically he should be dead, haha

    I picked some other color because I want Skeletor's face to look "skull-like", with bone color tones to give it that "realistic" look. And make it "dirty" looking instead of super-clean looking like it was for Ghost Rider.

    I voted yes, that it should have some yellow tints to it.

    All neon yellow? Probably not... But a gold mask? Sure!
    Or yellow markings on a normal skull? Could be cool too...

    I'd love to see hints on green in there too.

    Honestly, it's the YELLOW SKULL that makes Skeletor unique and different from all the other skulls out there.

    I voted some other color. His skull needs to be bone-colored like a real skull.

    Bone can yellow (even brown) if it's explosed to chemicals like tannic acid in a bog. For Skeletor it seemed more logical that since his skull-face was the result of an injury or accident that was obviously magical in some way (because, you know, he was still walking around) that the bone reflect this. A white skull is more a natural skull that's been left to weather in the elements and exposed to the sun. Nothing about Skeletor's disfigurement is natural and so I have to go with yellow.

    I choose yellow, cause is the classic color of his face.
    In the vintage line it works pretty good
    I mean, a "bone" color would give it a more realistic appearance, yes, but, since we are speaking about a man with a skull-face, i don't think that "realistic" is better than "classic" in this specific case.

    Yellow is good.

    After seeing Two Face in THE DARK KNIGHT, I really hope they go CGI with the character's face.

    wow. I know the general public sees us hard-core fans as nit-picky, but...hmmm.

    I picked "some other color" just to play devils advocate. I also wish there was an indifferent option. I really dont care what color the skull is, as long as it looks bone-like.

    I think the bone colour of Skeletor face in the 80's film worked very well and would like to see something like that.

    mainly white with a yellow tinge, pure yellow would look daft
    And so I walk, into the searing light which banishes all darkness, surrendering my face and form to atoms of dust, seeking the true darkness of peace,the cool shadows of eternity and the unknown fate of nothingness

    Hmmm I voted no to yellow... but then again maybe he could have an ominous yellowish glow coming from within so kinda like how you would put a flash light under your chin. I think his eyes should be a hollow socket UNTIL he becomes angry, then they glow red!

    I'd like to see a yellow skull actually as it looks great with the purple and blue colour scheme. Makes the charcter look richer and set him apart from any other , grim reaper type character. Also maybe Gar bone is more yellow? Also visually it ties him to Evil-Lyn which is important in visual storytelling...very much depends though on which angle their gonna take with the new movie.

    I really think there is way to tie Skeletor to Evil Lyn, also a knot tied to King Hiss is when it becomes interesting.
    I see Lyn as a former snake-girl, and that Skeletor used his magic to make her look more human, but lost his own face in the process, making her the only girl that could love his face, and making King Hiss angry at the same time.
