    It's good to see this line getting constant exposure on other websites!

    Practically every major toy website has a MOTUC thread. Even sites devoted to other toylines have a MOTUC thread. The die-hard fans aren't the only ones looking at the line. These online toy collectors who wrote it off originally for the price, lack of retail presence and re-used parts are giving the line a try.

    Where is the Havoc Staff? I do like how they put Evil Lord of Destruction under his name instead of Overlord of Evil

    You can barely see it, what with the glare, but the Havoc Staff is stashed behind Skeletor. The big question is: Will it come out of the package in its proper bent form?
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Is that another sword I see just behind Skelly (next to his right shoulder)?

    Does this mean that that like the 2002 Skelly he will have dual swords (tho this time I doubt they will join together)

    Yep, he's got a complete sword, just like kg, and then he's got half a sword which is completed by skeletor's half....

    They should have made the two half swords like gold or something. So that when you put them together you get a unique power sword. I always thought the half gray half purple sword while clever in concept, looked like turds in execution.

    What I liked was the Role-Play set from the early 80s (I have 15 minutes of video where I'm wearing the thing, doing the Power-up sequence, and stuff). The Sword was a two-piece set-up, but Skeletor's half was glow in the dark plastic as opposed to purple...

    Really had a nice, eerie feel to it.

    Hmmmm....so he can hold his Havoc Staff in both hands? So we can pose him like the classic "Skeletor shooting the Havoc Staff with two hands" pose? Or have two swords in his hands ala Keldor...

    The body looks good. I'm still not too crazy about the head though.

    UPDATE: He actually HAS Skeletor in hand!

    Nice!

    As per the green. The Prototype had green on him, imagine the 4HM painted his face green, then airbrushed the yellow mostly over top of it, but you could still see green at the edges.

    I think this is a production take on how they did the prototype. Only it does look like they left more green on the forehead... Which I like quite a bit.

    Kudos Mattel! Skeletor looks great!
