    What do you want Skeletor's Staction to be like?

    So a Skeletor staction is--we hope--going to happen before too long. So, if it does, what do you want the regular wave version to be. I'm sure there will be a Con Exclusive, but for many of us those exclusives are a luxury we must do without. So expecting that the version that comes in a regular wave will be the easier one to get, which version do you want?

    And if it's something other than these options, what would it be?

    EDIT=Of course, "BA" means the classic Battle Armor Skeletor and not the 200X Battle Armor thing.

    If it doesn't have that danged flipped-over peice on the loincloth like the old-new Skeletor figure I'll be happy.

    That one flipped part drives me nuts. It's like a mistake that was purposefully sculpted. I get the point of it, but I wish they'd have left it off the action figure.

    I was disapointed with the move for a BA He-Man in a regular wave. Sure the figure looks great and all, but where's my definitive He-Man?

    No thanks, just a regular Skeletor for me that resembles the full-sized statue.

    BOTH!!! I like the idea of one of them having a cape but both having a cape would rock just a bit more! I don't know... his hood just kinda goes with a cape instead of the whole ninja mask/hat thing tied around his neck like the original toy.

    Here I go making it complicated, but if it were a Dragon Blaster Skeletor or Terror Claw Skeletor, cape or no cape? In case it's not obvious, I'd very much like a cape, but I'm wondering how strongly others feel about it given all the possible ways to do Skeletor.

    I'd actually prefer a dragon blaster Skeletor before a BA version, actually. And seeing as where the Dragon would be clinging to him, I don't think the cape would work. It'd be all shredded and torn and that poor little dragon would keep slipping off his back. It would be a sad and clumsy mess for the both of 'em.

    Dragon Blaster Skeletor with his harness armor.

    I don't even think the cape would work so much with the BA version, although I wouldn't be opposed to it. I'd much rather see a normal Skeletor staction with his cape, a la the cartoon.

    I voted for both, one Skeletor with a cape (like the statue) and one Battle Armor.

    I'm hoping they do something similar to what they have done with Heman. Have an exclusive version, which is the regular Skeletor, we all know and love, with a cape, and then the regular version would be BA Skeletor (without cape). This seems fair as long as the exclusive is not impossible to find. I think one version should come with the two halves of his sword apart and the other version with them together.

    My biggest fear is that we are going to get DragonBlaster Skeletor instead of BA. I would prefer BA Skelly to compliment BA Heman.

    LOVE this Idea!!
    I also like the Idea of BA, WITH cape.
    I can see it in my head....looks killer.

    (God I hope they don't do 40 variations and a con exclusive on top...It's no fair, I can never go!!!!)

    Call me old but I would want it like the classic line, but... give regular Skelly a cape. Just leave it off the variants. But do all og the original variants of Skelly and He-Man, just make sure to give them the original swords.
    Yea, that'll work for me.

    I'll take any old skool Skeletor variant souped up by the Horsemen. Battle Armor, Terror Claws, or even with just a nice purple/black cape it doesn't matter.

    Dragon Blaster Skeletor.

    I have no use for a Skeletor in a cape.

    I think either one of these in the 4H style would be awesome!

    I voted for "BA Skeletor like the classic variant".
    I think he'd look great displayed next to BA He-Man.

    I'd prefer something original. BA Skeletor or DB Skeletor wouuld be cool, and so would a caped version or one on his throne. But how about the 4H come up with their own idea? I know they can't make acton figures, or create new characters, but since it's Skeletor how about just a new version? I love the idea of keeping him "classic" but that look didn't always work for me. He needs a cape, and the havok staff but maybe up the evil sorcery aspect a bit and give the staff colored, translucent eyes so that can "light-up" a la an energy blast forth coming. He would need "angry red" eyes, maybe a solid plastic material. Give him the cape but make it a tough material, like a leather-like material so it's still flowing but not limp. He also needs a hand reaching out in a partial grasp like he's reaching out for He-Man's heart. Make the nails long and almost claw like too. In fact I'd make all the nails very long, almost like talons. Increase the otherworldly qualities and make him much more vicous looking. He should be one scarey mutha so make him look like one.

    So far, no one wants just a regular skeletor. Interesting.

    Since the next He-Man staction is a B.A. naturally people think Skeletor would be a B.A. I, myself, hope to get a normal skelly, cape or not. With a awesome pose with his Havok Staff.

    Battle Armour Skeletor is a must, especially with BA He-Man coming out. A cape would be a nice touch, but I can live without it. I really hope a BA Skeletor turns out as good as BA He-Man. When I first saw the new BA He-Man, I thought "now that is what a movie He-Man should look like!"

    I'd like a Battle Armour Skeletor to go with Battle Armour He-Man.

    Then I'd also like a Sketetor staction with a cape.

    While you can't really have a classic coloured Skeletor, I'm sure a version of him with cape and a classic power sword would go down well with some fans.

    I want a regular Skeletor. With cape and everything. I want the face he had in the statue version, he just screaming evil there.

    Terror Claws and Dragon Blaster are cool, but I want a regular one first.
