    Skeletor's Various Color Schemes

    I'm trying to figure out which Skeletor heads match which Skeletor bodies.

    Can the Filmation Skeletor head match up with Keldor's body? I only own Keldor MIB and it looks to me like the answer is no. I think the FM head is too purple.

    On a related note, is the cape that's coming with the ultimate Skeletor more blue than Keldor's original (would it match the classic body, for example)?

    I'd like to build my own version of Skeletor with boots (no demon feet), a Filmation head, cape, and classic-detailed body, but I'm not sure it can be done with the pieces we have. I thought the best bet was the FM head on the Keldor body.

    I will say that one my great disappointments for this line is that we never really got a true Classics-style Filmation Skeletor head. Some customizers have build a few that are ok, but I'm surprised an official one never came around given all the Skeletor variants out there.

    Keldor is much more purple than other Skeletors. It's a drag because he's the only one with painted crossbones. I had to rectify that situation on my own.

    (Side note which nobody will care about; I have had purple and violet mixed in my head for my whole life. I always thought that violet was more red and purple was more blue.)

    I think Keldor is actually less purple than FM Skeletor. Do you disagree with that?

    It would change the calculus on this a bit.

    Just as I thought, CG Skeletor on a Keldor body doesn't quite look right because of the purple color. I have to say, I do think the Keldor body is probably the best classics body for Skeletor. I just like the boots better than the demon feet. And I like the painted details on Keldor better than CG Skeletor.

    As I mentioned to you in the PM, I think you could do a wash on the CG Skeletor head and get a pretty close match. It wouldn't be that hard to do (and acrylic paint should come off if I don't like it).

    Certainly the CG head would only work on this body. The other Skeletor armors are way too blue.
