    Keldor Discussion Thread

    The biggest news for ME wasn't Optikk. It wasn't Screech. It was Keldor.



    Hopefully Keldor comes with everything that we see here! I've long disliked Classic Skeletor because I've felt that he wasn't scary enough compared to the 200X version...hell, even the Alcala version.



    So hopefully MOTUC will replicate the original Keldor's "action feature" "just as we remember them" and give us a vial of acid, 2 alternate heads (please one of them be the 200X head), double swords and a repainted 200X Havoc Staff. Repaint Skeletor's armor and loincloth like the 200X Skeletor and we're good!




    Even if I can't make a 200X Skeletor out of Keldor, at least regular Skeletor will finally have a cape!!!

    Id like to see it come with the vial of acid ,the 2 swords that can combine, and a cape. As for the havoc staff he didnt use one when he was

    keldor in the episodes. I dont remember if he was shown with one in another flashback but he only used his sword in the opening episode.

    Keldor was in boots in the show so no nworries there hopefully.

    Skeletor used his swords all throughout the first three episodes. He also used them in the episode where he tried to enter Grayskull from underground. He-Man and Randor both had to sword fight him together.

    Keldor was in boots in the show so no worries there hopefully.
    Unless Mattel plays it ultra cheap, like they normally do with 200X characters.

    would be far more better than playing it cheap. I'm wondering
    whether or not he'll have a cape along with an alternate 200X
    Skeletor head.

    I was referring to keldor only using his swords and not using or possessing a havoc staff. Sorry if i was unclear.

    Wait, cheap?

    I'm no Mattel apologist, but cheap?

    There haven't been many 200x in MOTUC, but I wouldn't call Zodak cheap. Re-used parts...just like 80% of MOTUC, and we DID get glow in the dark tattoos.

    And we're getting Kronis.

    And MOTUC began w King Grayskull, who's sword we eventually got.

    As a 200x lover, I am pretty happy with how Mattel has worked some of the designs into MOTUC.

    Bro! Where'd you get that skull?

    I would. Mattel cuts serious corners bringing 200X figures to fans. Which isn't a complain, but an observation. Mattel can't afford to go as detail rich toward any 200X details like they do with stuff from the original line.

    Zodak has no unhelmeted head. The only thing new on him was the staff.

    Keldor might even have Skeletor feet. I wouldn't be surprised if that happened.

    I'm glad too. Just wish it were on the level of the vintage characters.

    It is from a Marvel Legends "Ghost Rider" figure. It had flames coming off the top and back of it but I was able to sand them down and shape it with a Dremel. Then I used a clear plastic stand from a Star Wars Sith Probe Droid figure as the neck peg.

    I'll just be happy to get a Keldor finally. Agree, boots would be ideal, and the cape will be a must. As for the heads, not sure he really needs the final "Skeletor" head again. Although I would not say no to the three heads, giving us the Keldor and acid burning head will make my day for sure!

    Great idea Captain Atkin - that would work for me.

    I agree, two heads this time will be ok.

    I hope they can do something to Keldor's face so that he doesn't look like a generic villain.

    My hopes for Keldor:

    -the 200X spli-sword (must be able to join as the original did!)
    -Vial of Acid (Check!)
    -Cape
    -Three (3) Heads: Keldor, Acid-Burning-Melty-Face, and Unhooded Skeletor
    -Accurate Armor
    -Accurate footwear (even the Stratos/booties feet would work for me)
    -Accurate Hands (Human/He-Man)
    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

    If they do give him an unhooded head, I really hope he doesn't have that floating skull.

    It completely contradicts the Laser Light Skeletor toy and 2 of his New Adventures figures, which established that only his face is burnt off. The rest of the flesh on his head is intact.

    I'd also like him to have unique armour and boots like on the cartoon, but a straightforward recreation of the 200X figure would suit me fine.

    i really don´t like the MYP Story about Keldor.

    I grew up with the Story of Skeletor of this Tape.


    Skeletor is a product a old giants from another dimension. The giants puts all the evil of their planet and did Skeletor.

    But i like the Keldor figure.

    Trap Jaw style boots (painted purple) would also work well for Keldor. Combine them with a Faker style body, and with Skeletor's armor and you have a winner.

    I’m very excited about this figure. I hope they make him this time with a pair of boots.

    I'd like to see Keldor with the following items:

    -Acid Vial
    -Split apart sword
    -Boots instead of feet
    -Longer loincloth
    -Redesigned armor instead of Skeletor armor. It needs to have metallic "X" pieces on the chest instead of crossbones. Also add an attachable/detachable cape.
    -3 heads (Keldor, acid burned Keldor, Skull). We don't need another Skeletor head since we already have Skeletor and will probably get a 200X Skeletor as well. The 3 heads will surely prompt people to buy more than one. I know I'll buy 3 figures if it comes with these 3 heads.

    I don't see the need for the havoc staff either since it wasn't used in "The Price of Deceit".

    My custom Keldor/Skeletor:







    I would love to see the MOTUC Keldor come with a floating skull somehow.

    He did have the Havoc staff as Keldor in the MVC Icons of Evil comics though.

    If you can make 200X Skeletor from using Keldor's accessories on normal Skeletor, we wouldn't need to come out with a 200X Skeletor release.

    You kill two birds with one big stone.

    Good call! I never even considered different boots; those lower Trap Jaw legs would look perfect! Really would make him stand out a little more as Keldor and not a total repaint of Skeletor (not that I mind that, either).

    Here's what I'm hoping for:

    - 200X dual sword
    - Perhaps a shorter Havoc Staff? Seems too much to ask.
    - The HEADS. They rocked so much. I really wanted that exclusive!

    That stuff would be good for me, but I would love to see some innovation go into it with the use of Trappy's lower legs for the boots. Heck, I'd also like to see the harness redone to mimick the 200X look, rather than just repaint the existing one, but if we're already hoping for extra heads 'n such then this guy will start to get costly with more new stuff.
