    Keldor/200X Skeletor double-sword: Mattel are going to do it!

    Something TG posted many pages into this thread and which will probably get missed by a great many people as a result:

(despite what people say I am in there fighting the good fight!).

    This isn't indicitive of "rules changing", I just made the case that enough fans want these and it doesn't indicate a changed character design. So hey, chalk one up for a fan demand victory!

    I was going to save this announcement for NYTF, but hey, you guy wanted a news break, there you go!
    So, let the speculation on what they'll include them with begin :
    1) It's not going to be for a while if the green light's just been given. Think 2012, not 2011.
    2) It's unlikely it'll be with a 200X-Skeletor - as things stand, that would be still be a standard MotUC Skeletor with a white skull & Keldor's cape, which wouldn't be worth it - and they aren't going to redo Keldor.
    3) So, logically, it'll either come with (a) whatever Skeletor variant they were already planning on next [post-BASk, that is] or (b) with an unrelated character as a "secret accessory", ala the 200X He-Man sword's inclusion with Man-at-Arms.

    Anyone disagree with my points?
