    Hsss' torso does indeed come apart easily. It would be pretty frustrating to a child trying to play with him. He comes apart simply trying to pose his legs. You have to hold him by the waist to do it without him coming apart. As for BA Skeletor's armor, mine stays on just fine. I've changed the plates a few times, and it stays intact when I put it back together. Overall, two very nice figures

    Battle Armor on Skeletor just does not work with him. It ruins his look as opposed to He-Man where it makes sense because the sword is forming it for him. Skeletor just looks like a man who forgot his pants with that thing on. Maybe I'll think differently when I actually have him in hand, but yeah, I am not a fan of the BA on Skeletor.
    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's pretty harsh for one of the most popular Skeletor looks/variants.

    Did you have the Battle Armor variants back in the day? I thought everyone loved those variants. They were like the first MOTU variants evarrrr.

    I can't wait to receive mine! Love that purple they used on him.

    I wasn't too keen on the Battle Armors. I had both of those variants, but I preferred the originals. Neat gimmick though.

    Received my King Hsss (x2) and Battle Armor Skeletor today, 1 day earlier than UPS estimated. Awesome!

    I really like these 2 figures. I'm still not 100% sold on King Hsss' snake form but I'm hoping they'll get to the 200X version which is my favorite and make him extremely menacing. So far my both my King Hsss(es?) waists appear to be fairly secure. They both have a slight bobblehead issue though but not too bad. BA Skeletor is perfect! No armor popping off issues so far.

    No I'm not, and I don't want him either. I put him up for sale in the marketplace forums.

    Yes, I did, because that was the only version of Skeletor my parents could find me and I even hated it back then. I was always annoyed that the battle armor's plate would never stay on the undamaged one. Plus, he did not look like the cartoon, so that also annoyed me. I was not sure which annoyed me more as a kid. Having a Skeletor that did not look cartoon accurate or having a Galvatron that was gray, so he to was not cartoon accurate.

    Anyway, this makes me really mad. I get home today, all happy that I would have my new figures. The UPS note on the door says they delivered it to the main office of my apartment complex. I go there, nothing. I call them up, turns out the guy did NOT deliver it to the office and just rescheduled it for tomorrow. Then when I asked if I could just come and pick it up, they told me I would have to wait until tomorrow at the earliest. -_- UPS really is run by a bunch of retards.
    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.

    Hsss was my most wanted MOTU figure as a kid. Loved the snake form underneath the human appearance. The MOTUC version looks phenemonal, but not without it's flaws. The two upper torsos come off easily when you try to pose the legs. The sculpt of the upper thighs hinder the leg articulation.

    Also matty totally screwed me with no snake staff!!! It's like I can't fully experience this figure like everyone else. Anyways off to pics.

    He may look heroic


    Friendly...


    But DON'T trust him!

    I just opened them up and I cannot believe how much I like King Hiss! And while I had no problem with him being announced, I was NOT one of the people asking for him, I was just like, "whenever they get around to him is fine." But holy crap he's one of my favorite figures ever. Both forms ARE so impressive, I'm REALLY glad I'm getting two (one from my sub and one from a fellow board member), because BOTH forms have just GOT to be displayed! Oh, and the one I got today stays together at the waist in both forms just great!

    As for the Battle Armor figures, before they were revealed I thought they were kinda pointless without their action features, but I was TOTALLY won over the moment I got BA He-Man, so I was stoked for Skeletor the moment he was announced, and he did not disappoint AT ALL! Most impressive month in a long while, so now let's bring on Panthor for my birthday!

    This was the only Skeletor I had as a child and I'd say this is the best version of him in MOTUC.
