    Great review! I can't wait for BA Skeletor! I hope his armor stays on though. BA Skeletor was one of my favs. Only a couple more weeks!
    It's all about being polished when it counts!

    He is kind of cool, but still vastly inferior to the MOTUvsDC one. Of course, unlike He-Man, his battle armor does not fit at all. The only reason I will not mind this figure is because I had the original BA Skeletor, as he was all I could get back in the 80s.

    I so hope the armor does not fly off too, because this is supposed to be before He-Man destroys it.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    That shiny metallic purple torso is only a few shades off from blue...

    Darken the yellow closer to orange...

    Use the metallic gold paint from the Great Wars Mer-Man armor...

    I can feel the groove a-comin'! Soon it'll be time to get down and boogie!

    Having said that, still looking forward to this figure. Great review as usual, Dan.
    I'm going to give mine one of Keldors half Swords, and Keldor gets the Orange half sword from Faker (who in turn has his hands full with the axe and sheild from the weapons pak!)

    Can't wait for this figure! And I like having the figure rotating at the beginning of the review as well as the end--nice touch!

    One thing that bothers me about BA He-Man and BA Skeletor is that, if they managed to get Clawful's armor to fit snugly to his torso, why does the Battle Armor look so baloon-ish? I kinda looks they're wearing mini-sumo suits.

    Bring on Dragon Blaster and Terror Claws!
    I agree that the double slash plate doesn't look good because the slashes are too thin. But I'm glad they are silver just like the original. I think he's feet should have been metallic purple too.

    I highly doubt Clawful's armor is removable. I bet it's like Buzz Off and Whiplash.

    I like BA Skeletor, he looks better than the regular version IMO

    This is the Skeletor I had as a kid; I didn't have the regular version. I'm so stoked for BA Skeletor. Another awesome review Pixel Dan!

    I agree that his armor won't be removable, but just because the Battle Armor is, it doesn't have to be so baloonish.

    Metallic feet could have looked cool.

    Very cool figure and good review. I like the torso coloring and the paint job on the new head.

    Sorry guys, but I keep trying to like this figures and cannot. I even swapped the lower legs to have him with blue feet and it still does not work for me. I think it is the loin cloth and the lack of anything on his arms that do not work for me. I understand it is how the vintage figure was, but this line is supposed to be taking ideas from all eras, and I find his arms to be bland without any on his wrists. Just putting something as simple as bracelets could have made this figure incredible.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.
