    How should Disks of Doom Skeletor's boots be handled?

    I've noticed a couple of people mention the idea that Vikron's boots could be reused for Disks of Doom Skeletor, and I'd like to be very clear of my own opinion; I do not want these two figures to share boots.

    The cartoon version may resemble Vikron's boots, but the toy version does not. I personally do like the toon version of the boots, but I don't want Vikrons bulky, front-only boot-lings on DoDS.

    Here's a shot of the toon version, which I prefer, just not quite as bulky as the picture shown.

    And here's the toy version, which is much slimmer.

    And here's Pixel Dan's Vikron review.At 14:00 the "Tankron" part of the review begins, and at 14:40 he shows off the boots, at 16:24 there is a close-up of the front of the boots, and at 16:30 there is a closeup of the back of the boots.

    My personal problem with Vikron's boots is that they are open on the back, and that they are way too bulkyfor DoDS.

    Please Mattel, don't cut this corner!! : (

    But what does the rest of the .org community want?

    I personally think that the Vykron "tank boots" would work fine as the boots for Discs of Doom Skeletor from New Adventures. As I will be displaying him from the front view... and VERY likely if they use them again the ywill be glued in place an mighty possibly had a glued on back of the legs cover if they reuse them later.

    IMO they should definitely look more towards the cartoon version for this figure and I agree that they should not use the Vikron's boots, they are too big and need to go all the way around.

    if you complete the boots of Vikron(Tankron) fully around the leg, it could work. But I don't want anything that just pops off.
    No more stuff for sell, all donated, done!
    I still need MOTUC: Strobos, King Grayskull, Wun-Dar, and Preternia He-Man

    Well if they must use them, then I just hope there is a covering for the back, but to me they are still way too big.

    I love Tank Heads boots for Skeletor. I just don't want them clip-on. I'd want them to look like Tank's boots, but proper boots

    Toon look, whatever works to get it.
    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
