    Great review but once again NA figures suck. I really hope there is no NA add on sub next year (assuming there is a next year). It would make sense but I really just don't like the figures. They don't fit in at all.

    Yeesh, both NA He-Man and Skeletor have trouble holding their stuff! I was able to wrap a small clear rubber band around NA He-Man's sword so he has a tighter grip, but I'm not sure what I'll be able to do with Skeletor. Then again, I'll just wait and see what it's like when I have him in hand. I'm not terribly happy with how huge the staff handle looks to be, but with how gummy the hands are, I guess it needs to be bigger to have any sort of grip on it.

    Ah well! All the details I could ever ask for are there, and simply bending him forward will get rid of the midriff. Hopefully I can play around with him without the staff flying out of his hand - that's all I really want in the long run. Someday I'll be on the floor with a kid and messing with these toys, and if Skeletor's staff keeps falling out of his hand with every movement, we'll both be disappointed!

    Who am I kidding though? I'm still CRAZY looking forward to this guy. I may even get a second and remove the cape so he can match my old figure, whose cape was usually on other figures.

    great review Pixel Dan, thank you! That is an awesome group shot of the villains. All we need now is a female for each group and the N/A is pretty much complete!

    Thank you for that review.

    The FOUR HORSEMEN updated his design amazingly, Mattel screwed up with the execution a bit but that´s a normal thing by now if you ask me
    Business as usual

    Like all the other review samples his shoulders look reversed, didn´t you noticed it or am i mistaken?

    Thanks again and NA rocks!

    Wouldn't an add-on sub be the best thing for someone like you?? That way you don't have to buy them...

    Hey Dan another great review NA Skeletor looks awesome! Few questions, I didn't see you mention the shoulders and if they look reversed, in the review they look like they fit right next to the bicep to me? (Not a huge issue to me, just I've seen a lot of comments from others) And the hands look like Horde Prime's are they removable? Also if you crunch him forward how far before it looks alright and his stomach isn't showing, most of the views in the video seem to show his belly button? Thanks in advance!

    Rumor has it if we get that far the add-on sub will be 200X!

    Not happy to see "gummy hands", but it's not a deal killer. Otherwise I'm totally digging this guy! Thanks again for another great review, Dan.

    Gummy hands are my biggest complaint about Tallstar. Sad to see a few years after her release, that another figure is having this problem. Not being able to properly hold weapons is irksome. Other than that, I think he came out alright. The bulky armor is a bummer, yet the details on this Skeletor are so well-done that they do a good job of distracting you from the flaws, IMO. Love the staff and the bonus Faker head!

    I think that's VERY unlikely due to the Pop sub barely making it this year and statements that Pop sells better than NA. I just hope we get Sagitar before this fantastic voyage train comes to a screeching halt

    I guess it wouldn't be enough for them to be available for those who wanted them without "forcing" those who hate them into getting NA figures.
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    Wow! Awesome New Adventures shots at the end there Dan! I particularly liked Skeletor leading the Mutants and the whole NA cast together at the end. Great ideas for pictures!

    Unfortunately, this figure is marred by Reubenization; the bulky armor which looks atrocious AND gummy hands which lead to his weapon not staying secure. It's a pity...the one NA figure that everyone seemed to like and overcame "being lame because it is a New Adventures character" has issues which seem to knock it back down again.

    Gummy hands and bulky armour cannot detract from how psyched I am for this guy. As always, seeing the NA characters in Classics scale is one of the main allures of this line for me.. can't wait until September (international post!)

    And, Dan, if you get a few minutes, and chance you can take a picture of NA Skelly with the battle damaged Faker head on? Much appreciated, and thanks for the review Mate!

    I'm fine with the bulky armor, but that belly button being shown totally kills the illusion they were trying to go with the armor-skin. I guess he'll have to be in a hunched over all the time.

    Looking at the shoulders closer, I don't think they are backwards. The muscle definition seems correct, and the sculpt on the back of the shoulders matches the sculpt on the back of the arms.

    Also, the hands are non-removable.
