    WIP: 200X Skeletor

    This is something I've wanted since the line started. I've already made a 200X He-Man (Grayskull body + He-Man head).

    Started with a Keldor buck and slapped on some TrapJaw boots. I then took a Scareglow head cast and sanded it to fit inside a Preternia He-man hood. I'm currently modding some feet from a 200X Skeletor figure.

    I was having a hard time getting the detail on the Scareglow head to show up in the pictures so I added a little dirt.

    Once I finish the feet I'll get him painted up.

    Wow, that's ingenius! The figure thus far does not shout '200x' to me yet, but I really feel using Preternia He-Man's hood along with a Scareglow head is a brilliant idea!! I'm liking this more than the official MOTUC Skeletor!

    Yeah I agree, it doesn't really scream 200X yet. He needs his feet, swords and a killer paint job.

    I also really like how it looks when I put it on Skeletor. I'm going to cast it so I can end up doing both versions.

    Heres what it looks like on Skeletor:

    Really nice. I always knew Scareglow's Head would look good on Skeletor.
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    nice work so far. i was wondering how scareglow's head would look w/ the phm hood and now i know.

    i also modded some 200x skelly feet to fit the skelly shins and they look great just a pain to get the little ankle rings to fit properly. patience and a good hair dryer worked wonders.

    =)
    Can I get a "Hell Yeah" for Scorpia!!!

    Looking good so far you might have to settle for MOTUC skeletors feet though I cant think of anyone who will have naked feet like 200x Skelly either way looks cool.

    How about Beastman's feet (after sanding off the fur...)
    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.

    That is amazing, I can't wait to see how it turns out. That is the PERFECT head combo, this is the best Skeletor head combo ever created throughout all time and space.

    That hood is the best yet and I hope it gets reused on a future figure, but I doubt it.

    Looking good man, those TJ boots work well. I can't wait to finish my custom 200x Skeletor but finding a spare pair of those Trap Jaw boots is difficult.
    Don't mess up TWO-BADD! That's all I ask!

    I was wondering when someone was going to do this... CLEARLY they will be releasing a Skeletor with this kind of hood... probably Laser Power/Light Skeletor.

    The Havoc Staff that is coming with The Faceless One has those "powered-up" reddish horns... which, I am convinced, is their way of giving a 200X-ish Havoc staff. You can give this 200X Skeletor that Havoc Staff

    EXCELLENT work on the face!

    This is absolutely awesome. I love what you did. The Scareglow head looks great in the PE He-man hood. What a great recipe. Really well done dude. Really well done.

    Very, very cool.

    Beeto Bot did a similar thing with one of his Skelly's a while back, in this thread, went for an Alcala-look. 'Course that was before we knew about PE He-Man, so he had to sculpt an all-new hood, but he did use Scareglow's face just as you are, excellent choice! Check out post #20 for tips on the foot process, and his final product can be seen in post #54, it's sic. The absolute BEST custom classic Skeletor I have ever seen, what I'm gonna try to copy someday, lol.

    The first time I saw the Preternia He-Man hood, I immediately thought about a 200X Skeletor custom using it and a Scareglow head. It's great to see I wasn't the only one thinking about it.

    I know some love the EXACTLY LIKE THE 80's Skeletor Bonnet, but I'm not one of them.

    I'd be shocked if Mattel doesn't make a 200X Skeletor using the exact same parts you did. Maybe they can use the opportunity to include the 200X Skeletor sword.
