    What's with all the "army builder" request threads lately? lol. We have the one for Mer-man, Lodar, and now Skelly? Sheesh! Maybe we should make one "catch all" thread for different types of army builders...?

    Lately? This thread exists since last December!

    Another user created a similar thread yesterday (should still be on first page) in addition to this one being bumped in regards to Skeletor's henchmen/troops for army builders. No worries, just pointing out that it seems like an abundance with the recent additions listed.

    Growing up in the UK I had all the Ladybird books and loved the Skelecons. I was always dissapointed you couldn't buy toys of them. I would love these guys to get made so sign me up for 2!

    The Skelcons look cool, but I'd rather have Skeleton Warriors first.

    Seems to be a great add-on for the line to have Ladybird creations' characters. Especially adding Skeletor his army... I guess I would love to have a few of them.

    Nothing represents more the unexplainable vacuousness of the human race, than the unfounded and arrogant blind faith in the ruthless and narcissistic transcendence of itself.

    Those. Are. Awesome!!

    I like that they fit with Skeletor's look and I think the Horsemen could do a bang-up job.

    I'd be satisfied with just one though, since there's not a lot going on. It could practically be a bonus figure.

    A 2-pack with a different Skeleton, like the MVC style I'd be into.

    The British ladybird books had great ideas - Skelcons, the iron master, wyverns, beast-men. Do them all matty!

    I know Scott said something to the effect that everything was now available except for the 1987 movie rights, but are the Ladybird Book rights definitely a go? If so, I'll definitely take some Skelcons. And those little aquatic henchmen that Mer-Man had.

    Skelacons as Army builder 2 pack in MOTUC


    I think Skelator has 3 viable options for an army builder 2pack in MOTUC.
    1. Robot Knights- Filmation
    2. Skelacons- Golden Books
    3. Bone Warriors- 200x

    Now I always imagined That Skelacons as people from the Dark Hemisphere that seek to be employed by Skelator. If they don't possess and special powers, yet something about them keeps Skelator from throwing them into his mines as Slave Labor. He promises them great power and a chance to serve him as a one of his Lieutenants (a promise he will never keep), and in return they must willful serve him as his faithful servants for a period of time. Once they concede, Skelator places the bone mask over their heads which slowly takes over their host, giving Skelator full control over them as mindless zombies, serving only him. He uses them throughout snake mtn, to fulfill the everyday tasks of running such a large fortress. I think the enchantment of the Bone masks, should turn the skin color from flesh tone to blue, in likeness of their master. Any other info on exactly who the Skelacons are, backstory, etc. I dont know much about them so I don't want to step over any facts that exist in media already established, I figure there just isn't much media about it so Im kinda creating a backstory to support them. Any other ideas on these guys! As accessories I like those daggers that they have. Any other images of them with weapons that could be added to their arsenal.

    as much as I liked the Skeleton Monster Warriors from 200x, and I really had no rememberance of these guys, ever since they have been re-introduced to my mind by the fellow .Orgers, I've come to love them.

    Yes certainly, this is the "Skeletor Faction" 2 Pack that I'd support.

    No, not interested. Not that they wouldn't look cool.
    Skeletor already has his many warrior & those skeletons. I'd rather have the skeletons from 200x.

    Yeah I'd really like these guys, my most wanted out of Skeletor's troops, always wanted these when I was a kid. I'd prefer a single card release though, with two heads that have the different horns as shown in your picture above. Love the sword with the bone hilt in the pic as well.

    Fo' shizzle!

    I've wanted these as action figures since I was a wee nipper. Those, along with Mer-Man's weird squiddy-looking dudes.

    And while we're on the subject of the UK Ladybird books, I'd love to see the Iron Giant be released as an oversized figure.

    In terms of their inclusion in the bios and MOTUC canon, they could simply be retconned as these guys...Demo-Man's slaves, who Skeletor eventually got to work for him (notice we can't actually see their faces, so it's open to interpretation)




    Just give us an extra head with their horns sawn off, and viola ... 2 birds with one stone! Then anyone who wanted could use them to build up Demo-Mans army to fight Vikor!

    I was on the fence about these Skelacons – my first choice for a 'Skeletor' army builder 2-pack would be the '200x MVC Skeleton Warriors' – but after reading your backstory for them, I think I'd definitely buy them! (...as well as the Robot knights! )
    – No comment.

    I think they explained this in the bios already after Keldor was merged with Demo man, and Skelator had delusions that he was going to lead "his people" But he would have actually led Hordak from Despondos, but the ruse didn't work. Im preatty sure it was Demo mans bio, but I need to double check.

    Ahh, right! I read that bio as "Hordak was planning on sneaking through the portal, whilst Demo-Man-possesed-Insane-Keldor/Skeletor was bringing his people through", not that "Skeletor thought the Horde were his people"....but I guess we gotta KEEP READING THE BIOS! (lol)
