    FILMation all the way!!

    I also love the way he was portrayed in the movie, it was near perfect.

    such a tough call between filmation skelly and movie skelly. but i gave a slight edge to the movie version because he did things that i ALWAYS wanted to see skeletor do - like taking over grayskull and transforming himself with the power sword.

    Filmation is the one I'm most familiar with...

    MYP. He didn't take no crap from his Evil Warriors (except Evil-Lyn, but not at Filmation levels) and could give He-Man a fight on a consistent basis.

    Sounds like you're talking about the movie Skeletor.

    I loved Frank Langella's version. MYP was really, really cool. But when I think of Skeletor, I think Filmation.

    I still want that filmation head. Anyone PM me about where to buy one of those customs that are really good?

    Filmation Skeletor. Win.

    MOVIE SKELETOR. He is the absolute perfect idea of Skeletor for me, and I've been a fan of him ever since I saw him for the first time. He just drilled into my brain. I match all variations on Skeletor against that version.

    For me it is definitely a toss up between Movie Skeletor and MYP. I didn't really like Skeletor in Filmation, to me he seemed like a coward. I thought the Langella Skeletor better respresented the way he was in the minicomics. He made me a fan of Skeletor. Once MYP came out my ideal Skeletor came to fruition. IMHO, MYP Skeletor is my favorite.

    Word! Mini comic Skeletor or Skeletor from the original package paintings.
