    Oh, and for the record, Skeletor looks splendid! And I agree, his eyes do look eerie.

    Yeeessss! That's Skeletor how he should look like. I absolutely love the design, the coherent style and the coloring of the MOTUC line. That's pure classic MOTU spirit. I know what will be on my wish list for Christmas this year.
    You're welcome. It does look pretty sweet.

    That prototype has some green, you just can't see it in that photo
    Of course, who knows how much will translate in the final product.

    I REALLY hope the purple loincloth thing is removeable, but he does look pretty awesome.

    I totally agree he is missing the cape. I hope he comes with a Keldor head.

    So much for him not looking evil because he would be based on the card back art. His eyes look menacing and it looks like there's a good amount of detail on his armor.

    My excitement for this line just went up another notch.
    Couldn't agree more!!

    Skeletor looks friggin' awesome!
    A fantastic sculpt; you can clearly see the inspiration taken from the original figure and mini-comics. I can't wait to see more photos of this bad boy, especially his weapons!

    I wonder if his cape comes as a bonus attachment? I wish

    Pretty disappointing IMO. The head sculpt is a step backwards I reckon. And I hate the small knickers. I was really hoping Skeletor would win me over to the Classics.

    I actually don't think this Skeletor does resemble the original mini comics version. The Skeletor that appears in my 'King of Castle Greyskull', both in the story and in the card art on the back, looks more hunched over, more hungered, especially in the face.

    Bummer. Will probably still get this Skeletor though because I love the character.

    So far, Zodac is the best looking of the line.

    If you noticed, these first figures are supposed to look more like the 8 back illustrations, not the minicomics.
    The body is the same of He-Man, so I don't think we can complain on the stance. Same scultp, but you cna change it thanks to the articulation.

    Hey Emiliano,

    So do you mean Skeletor is using the human body like He-Man? Not the 3 toes and webbed arms like Zodac and Mer-Man? Or did you just mean the stance? I hope Skeletor has the same legs and arms as Zodac and Mer-Man, it's hard to tell from the Toyfare picture.

    I like him!

    He reminds me of my first Skeletor. Evil, badass, crazy demonic bad guy. Don't get me wrong, I love the 200x Skelly, but the figure was a little.... puny/ The MOUTC gives him his bulk back - makes him look like he could stand toe-to-toe with He-Man on a physical level.

    I can't wait to get him!

    It isn't a solid piece, they can swap parts
    He-Man torso, evil legs and arms (like Zodac and Mer-Man) Mer-Man hands are different too.

    Thanks Emiliano,

    So no hairy chest for Skeletor then? Well if he has the evil legs and arms he looks like a more evil version of his card back. Well done Horsemen!

    So Emiliano you know alot about the parts, I don't suppose our favorite artist is doing the art for the card backs is he? hmmm?

    Actually Emiliano, I think Skelly really is the first figure that is disappointing.

    I was hoping for a head that was somewhere in between the classic and 200x head-sculpts, but this looks more like a straight-off classic head...

    He simply doesn't look evil enough, which is something the original never did. He looked a bit happy even, at times. The later classic heads looked more evil, like the Laser Light Skeletor, that's a truly bitter and evil head.

    I guess I should reserve judgment until I see some good photos, instead of this small thumbnail, but I'm pessimistic.

    On the ONE hand...! What if Skelly comes with an extra head?? Like, a mini-comic head. Now that head really looks evil!

    If he doesn't, can we (granted, we don't seem to be many) somehow voice our concern to Mattel and the 4H, to include a second skull? I really think it would be quite a treat, especially for such an important character.

    I am not feeling it. I hope it comes with an alternate head becuase that one really looks terrible IMO.
