    Top six He-Skele variants (2 per era)

    Just as the topic says: IF we were to get only 2 he-man/Skeletor variants PER ERA Who would they be? (Ignoring the already released BAHM and Keldor) Prince Adam does NOT count as a He-Man figure. I know I posted it down there but I'll copy&paste it here:
    the reason I'm ignoring BAHM, Keldor and Adam is because they are: Already released (BAHM), or are coming in the next 2.5 months (Keldor and Prince Adam) Aside those 3 anyone else is fair game. (BA Skelly is unofficially confirmed. Until we don't see a BA Skelly toy he's fair game on this list)



    Vintage:
    FF He-Man
    LP He-Man

    BA Skeletor
    Dragon Blaster

    NA:
    NA He-Man
    Battle Punching HM

    NA Skeletor
    Disks of Doom Skeletor

    200X
    Ice Armor HM
    Snake Armor HM

    Battle Armor Skeletor (200X take on Terror Claws)
    Ambrossia Skeletor (Battle Sound without sound)

    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    The only ones I would really want would be these from the vintage line:

    Thunder Punch He-Man
    Flying Fists He-Man

    Battle Armor Skeletor
    Dragon Blaster Skeletor

    I could do without the Laser Lights and Terror Claw Skeletor never was my favorite. At that time I was more into Hurricane Hordak!

    I really hope Mattel don't turn Skeletor into a cyborg in the MOTUC continuity. I hate that look.

    Are we counting stuff that's already been released? There aren't many variants worth it...

    Vintage MOTU
    Thunder Punch He-Man
    Flying Fists He-Man

    Dragon Blaster Skeletor
    Terror Claws Skeletor

    200X MOTU
    Snake Armor He-Man
    Ice Armor He-Man

    NA
    NA He-Man (The other two variants are NA He-Man too)

    NA Skeletor
    Disks of Doom Skeletor (just give him two heads to make Battle Blade Skeletor)

    My main want it Dragon Blaster Skeletor. I could see them really doing a great version of him. For the "mist" they can have a clear accessory with white highlights to clip on the dragon's mouth so it looks like it's spraying. Make the head of the dragon ball jointed too.

    Beyond that, the only other variants I care to see are NA He-Man and Skeletor, Snake Armor He-Man and maybe Ice Armor from 200x. All other variants would just depend on how they look.

    It's not right to ignore Battle Armor He-Man, since we will be getting Battle Armor Skeletor as well most likely, so I include them to even it out.
    I don't really like the last 4 variants much anyway; Flying Fists He-Man, Terror Claws Skeletor, Laser Power He-Man & Laser Light Skeletor.
    I guess the only one that's still remotely cool imo is Flying Fists He-Man out of those four.
    I consider Prince Adam and Keldor to be the opposites like He-Man & Skeletor.

    Vintage:
    * Battle Armor He-Man
    * Thunder Punch He-Man

    * Battle Armor Skeletor
    * Dragon Blaster Skeletor

    New Adventures:
    * NA He-Man without the armor to resemble the cartoon version as much as possible (a mix of all the NA He-Man variants)
    * NA He-Man with the full golden body armor & helmet

    * NA Skeletor
    * NA Battle Blade Skeletor + the Samurai Helmet to also make a "NA Disk of Doom Skeletor"

    200X:
    * Snake Armor He-Man
    * ... (200X He-Man which I consider a variant and a must have! but Mattel won't make him anyway >_<)

    * Battle Sound Skeletor, aka the Ambrossia Skeletor
    * ...

    1987 MOTU Movie
    * Movie He-Man

    * Movie Skeletor

    Agreed. If Prince Adam doesn't count as a He Man figure, then I don't believe Keldor should be grouped in as well.

    I would hope to get a BA Skeletor and at least Dragon Blaster Skeletor (one of my favorite toys as a child). I could care less about the laser light versions. I mean, how many of us state side actually had one as a child? Zero.... Point. Zero.....
    Ehhh! Where's my beer!?!?

    If we aren't counting Battle Armor He-Man, Keldor, or Prince Adam, then I'm not counting Battle Armor Skeletor, since I know he's coming. So...

    Vintage (aren't there only two left of each, anyway?):
    Flying Fists He-Man
    Thunder Punch He-Man

    Terror Claws Skeletor
    Dragon Blaster Skeletor

    NA:
    No variants please, just standard He-Man and Skeletor...veriants all looked too similar.

    200X:
    Snake Armor He-Man
    Ice Armor He-Man

    Fire Armor Skeletor
    Snake Crush Skeletor

    Most of the vintage variants i'd only want if they still had their action features, as they'd be pointless without them.

    Vintage:
    Thunder Punch He-Man
    Laser Power He-Man
    Battle Armour Skeletor
    Dragon Blaster Skeletor

    New Adventures:
    NA He-Man
    Battle Punching He-Man
    NA Skeletor
    Disks of Doom Skeletor

    200X
    Ice Armour He-Man
    Snake Armour He-Man

    We are absolutely going to get BA Skeletor so I didn't include him.

    1980s
    Flying Fists He-Man
    Dragon Blaster Skeletor

    NA
    none

    200X
    Snake Armor He-Man
    Disco Skeletor

    Including 2 He-Men and 2 Skeletors per era was too lenient! It basically lets us pick everybody.

    I mostly see the different eras as the proper varients, not varients within each era. But..

    Masters of the Universe
    Thunder Punch He-Man.
    Battle Armour Skeletor (This was my first Skeletor)

    Would love a Movie-ish Classics version for both He and Skel

    NA
    Basic NA Heman (Depending on how the 4H would do it, I mostly dont want it but respect it's need to exist.)
    Basic NA Skeletor (Same as above)

    200xmyp
    Actually didnt particularly like any of them.
    Though if forced to choose;
    The Battle sounds talking armour He-Man
    for giggles, Disco Skeletor (not that I'd buy it but it's infamous ;P )

    What should be done is a basic He-Man and Skeletor that is basically "nekkid" that came with/ was sold seperately armour sets. I dont need over 9000 varients when basically it's just them in different clothes. So make the armour removable, including the boots, bracers, ect, and sell 'em like the weapon packs. Those I'd buy.

    Frankly the only reason I got BA He-man (excepting that he is/was my favourite varient) and will get BA Skeletor (excepting that I only ever had that skeletor back in the day) was to have them riding their respective mounts, so the "Primary" versions can stay standing with the rest of the lot. Always had the BA versions on the box art riding the cats.

    OH and postscript, though the basic design of Snake armour He-Man was ok, I suppose, and the show was still good at that point, it ruined it in a way for me. I hated that snake armour for supersceding the typical "real" look of He-Man and the traditional transformation. Every time I see him needlessly extend those clasper claws things...ugh shudder. As a choice, cool. As the only thing he wears, lame.

    the only variants i liked that you haven't excluded are

    ice armor he-man
    fire armor skeletor

    i also liked 200X prince adam and blood skeletor, but the former was a completely different sculpt and the latter just had repainted armor if i remember correctly. not sure if those two count.

    Only variants I can see myself getting are:

    MOTU:
    Battle Armor He-Man (already released)
    Battle Armor Skeletor
    Dragon Blaster Skeletor

    NA:
    NA He-Man
    Battle Punching He-Man (only if NA He-Man comes with the golden armor instead of chest harness)
    NA Skeletor
    Disk Of Doom Skeletor

    200X:
    Snake Armor He-Man
    Horde Armor He-Man (it'd be nice to finally get this mysterious variant in some shape or form)
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    Variants I would definitely buy include:

    Vintage
    Battle Armor Skeletor (gotta be coming soon since we got BA He-Man)
    Dragon Blaster Skeletor (the 4HM would make this one look amazing!)
    Flying Fists He-Man (love the accessories and shiny armor)
    Terror Claws Skeletor (love the shiny purple, the claws would look awesome revamped)
    Thunder Punch He-Man (want this one the most, great look and symbol to this one)
    Starburst She-Ra (awesome cape, awesome pink mask thing, would make the best She-Ra variant)

    NA
    NA = NA aka Not Available because I won't be getting any. If they can make them look awesome and fit in with the rest, I'll give in like I did with Optikk who I just got a couple hours ago and I'm happy with him.

    200x
    Battle Sound Skeletor (love the shiny red armor, and the spikes, don't need the sounds)
    Fire Armor Skeletor (probably my favorite Skeletor variant in 200x)
    Ice Armor He-Man (an awesome He-Man variant!)

    I'd take anything that isn't NA, has Samurai in the title, or some sort of Smash/Spin Blade due to their rep for "kilin teh lien". It still pains me to look at the ones I have from the 200x days. When I see them, I see the entire section of them at my local stores in my mind. I don't want any Laser variants from the vintage line either. I never had them and they look like crap to me anyways.

    200x had a lot of good variants and not so many bad ones. I'd probably buy the majority of them if done right.
