    Great review.
    The figure itself is awesome (except the armor, I really hope that's not a wide spread issue), but I'll be the odd man out, as I feel that the head is horrible.
    Too bright for my tastes. As I already said in the Fwoosh review thread, I'll be using the 1'st release Skeletor head.
    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.

    Sweet review! I'm pumped for BA Skeletor. Those classic line variants are the best variants of all! I can't decide if I want Dragon Blaster or Terror Claws next when it comes to Skeletor. Not to mention a couple of his 200x variants were pretty sweet!

    I agree. Purple is such an awesome MOTU color for some reason. This metallic purple on BA Skeletor is definitely awesome. I hope they use that metallic paint for future things. It's definitely an eye catcher, as if MOTU figures didn't have eye catching color schemes to begin with!

    I personally think the paintjob on the BA Skeletor head looks terrible and removes most of the fine details from the sculpt. I much prefer the green wash on the orginal release.

    That said... I appreciate that Mattel is doing different versions of the head for each release, this one just isn't for me.

    Probably the funniest review yet. It really looks like you were having fun with this one Dan. I won't make the obvious comments about my concerns, because they are the same as everyone else's, but they are there.

    Again with the old ankle joints.

    QUESTIONS:

    1) Are his ankles tight?
    2) Does he have the "ball-stick-ball" neckpeg or the worse, female and Vikor, "loop-stick-ball" neckpeg?
    I'd like to know this as well.

    I agree with BadVermin on the head's paintjob, it looks a bit too washed with yellow and not much details are showing, at least in this particular video!... And the teeth are goofy looking with those bold black lines IMO, however the rest of the figure is simply awesome.

    Thanks Dan, your reviews are always enjoyable to watch and very thorough.

    Dan, can you check if the BA He-Man plates work on BA Skeletor?
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Those of you who do not like the paint on his face, well it's all about options. You have other Skeletor heads to choose from. Original, second release, TRU, Mo-Larr.

    It looks like Skeletor needs a little Weight Watchers. He can't even get his armor to stay on anymore. All he has is his loose fittting shiny club shirt underneath.

    But a definite welcomed addition to my collection.

    Good review, still not very excited for this figure though. I do love the new paint scheme on the head and might do as Dan suggested and use it for my regular Skeletor.

    Easy pass for me. Not a fan of varients anyway especially if it's 20 just for a different piece of armour.
    Also much prefer the original release Skeletor head. The bright yellow makes him look to happy, especially as his eyes are not blacked out.

    Great review Dan, but I'm sorry about your armor situation!

    I think BAS looks great; the new head painting looks pretty fantastic.
    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

    That new head is awesome. I have to admit, I am more excited for BA Skeletor than I was BA He-Man.

    Now that this variant is done bring on Dragon Blaster Skeletor

    I'm really looking forward to BA Skeletor! I'm REALLY happy I won't have to wait very long for Panthor, because that's definitely how he'll be displayed…on Panthor!

    Definitely getting two of these so I can upgrade my current Skeletor's head to this new and improved one!

    Great review! Hopefully Matty has my address for my subscription sorted out in time for this figure! I'm surprised that the differences in weapons between the new version and the vintage version weren't mentioned in the comparison section though. Aside from that - keep up the good work!
