    Really glad the see the Skelcon's in the new mini-comic, and really hope we can get firgures of them.
    Axel explained on FB that the different types are called the 'common Skelcon' and the 'winged Skelcon', and that it was Scott's idea to do a winged version.
    I really like the winged version but I'm glad they also included the original unwinged version.
    I hope we can get a two pack army builder of then, one winged one unwinged.
    I was also think what other display options this two pack could come with and found this picture of a Skelcon with crossbone armor. Would be nice to include this removable crossbone armor to have one of your Skelcon's as a commander or general.

    MOTUC NA Most Wanted: Darius, Kayo, Vizar, Hoove, Lizorr

    These would sell. They are army builders and fill.out the line and ranks. These would most definitely sell. Bet..

    This totally! I now want the Skelcons more than the 200X Horde wraiths.
    I hope they're the next army builder - Skeletor needs some decent troops (the hover robots don't do it for me)

    See, this is great, not the best art in the world, but of it's time , this reminds me of a less converluted time of my child hood where Skeletor was the lord of evil who comanded masses of Orcs goblins and creatures, not a cackling toon who lives with buffoons

    I don't think there is enough demand to support a 2-pack release of just Skelcons. These are niche army builders. Let's say the minimum production run is 10,000 units of a given SKU (it could be less or it could be more, we don't know; so 10,000 just to use a round number). For a 2-pack SKU containing the same figure repeated, it means doubling the number of manufactured figures of said character (with respect to the number of figures that would be produced for a single-carded release of that character or a mixed 2-pack of that character together with another different character). That is, they would need to produce 20,000 Skelcon figures, and niche characters do not have enough demand to absorb that relatively huge amount of produced figures. In fact, just selling through a single-carded production run of 10,000 for any niche character would be hard enough, and probably only the fact that Skelcons are army-builders would help them to sell out (because one would just require 2,000-3,000 niche customers buying an average of 3-4 Skelcons for army building purposes for a 10,000-unit production to sell out). With double that amount of produced figures, you would need double the required amount of niche customers to absorb them, so that it would approach the number of existing non-niche customers and so I don't think it would only be feasible for non-niche characters.

    So I think the most realistic way to release Skelcons (i.e., without them becoming eternal pegwarmers) would be either as single-carded figures, or in a 2-pack with another army-builder (and for the latter I think the Grayskull Sentry would be the ideal companion, since these are also Ladybird book characters, and they are Heroic; thus both complementing and balancing the Evil Skelcons).



    Either way, they can include the wings (which in any case should be removable, just like those of Draego-Man and Lord Dactys) and the crossbone armor as accessories, since in principle neither the Skelcons nor the Grayskull Sentry would need alternate heads or other accessories.

    These would be rad-- and they could use the mold twice for an army builder two-pack so that's good for Matty. The only new parts would be a new head, armor, and loincloth. I haven't seen the new mini comic but I'd imagine the Draego Man wings would work. What else? Oolar's spear??

    There's your plan right there, matty. Let's go.

    Eating humble pie!

    Have to admit - was never a big fan of the look of the Skelcons from the Ladybird books. But the customs we've seen of these characters (I've not seen the mini-comic representation) is absolutely awesome. MOTUC is clearly the optimal format for representing these warriors.

    I agree with the idea that these be single carded army builders, with removable wings for maximum display options. I would probably display 10 of these guys, if released.

    Most of my childhood He-Man lore came from the Ladybird books so I've always loved the Skelcons. Not convinced wings are a necessary addition, so making them removable is a (very easy to achieve) must.

    Me too. IF I get the Hover Robots they'll be going in with my Horde figures. Skelcons for the win!

    Id love some of these guys.... Much cooler than the tin cans/w weed-whacker hands were about to get...
    Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality.
    But...there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real,
    but not as brightly lit... a DARKSIDE.

    Just seen this thread, I grew up with the Skelcons too and would seriously geek out if we ever got these. I loved the Ladybird books growing up.

    I was very happy to see skelecons in the mini.

    I did not forget that alot of appearances in the minicomics are to if nothing else, supply art for bios if/when these got toys. I see it as very promising that they are referenced for the future, even if it never comes to be.

    At least Mattell has these on the table.

    I definitely think Skelecons would be the real most needed likely and right choice for an army builder 2 pack at this point, and probably always.

    Skelcons for 2016! Easy low tooling figures who looks awesome - it will be nice to have some proper sword and sorcery type of characters again without all the tech and gadgets.

    What about mixed army builders, like for example a 2-pack of a Skelcon and a Horde Wraith? That way people who don't necessarily want 2 of the same figure can get different army builders while those who want more of each character still have the option of buying more.
