    I feel like the Funko Disco Skelly kinda misses the point or something. Instead of being wacky and charming, it just looks ugly and bad. It's a good try but this was a swing and a miss.

    Are you saying Disco Skeletor doesn't look ugly and bad?

    His colors seemed to work a lot better to me than this version. His chest was a dark blue and the armor was a darker shade of gold, I think. This one looks almost lavender in the chest, and the armor is the color of mustard. Instead of making me think "wow, that is an insane Skeletor repaint", it makes me think "this looks terrible".

    Your statement is not only wrong is SUPER wrong. I sell a ton of these things as do most other retailers. You have to take into account what we buy them at (which I am not telling you) but you can clearly mark them down a great deal and still turn a profit.

    But their sales are quite high, which is why you see them expanding to blind boxed pop! vinyls now as well.

    GitD Skeletor is Gemini Collectibles exclusive. You can still get it from them, though only as bundled with other POP! Masters.

    Sofubi Hiraki Skeletor

    I can't seem to find any post about Funko's MOTU output, so thought I would start one up (At least for the Hiraki line anyway)...

    I have pre-ordered x2 of the MOTU Sofubi's Mystic Powers & Havoc Skeletor. Really looking forward to receiving them. I wouldn't mind purchasing the Greyskull variant in the near future. Already ruled out the chances of owning a Mythos Skeletor (and possibly the Antique) variant as I just can't justify paying more than $75.00 AUD each for these inc. shipping.

    So what are your thoughts on these? Who here's getting some?

    Personally I wouldn't mind an Orko Sofubi down the line...of cause that might never happen...any other characters you would like to see receive the Hiraki / Sofubi treatment from the MOTU-verse?

    I like them! I'm just trying to figure out which one I want the most. It's between the Mystic Powers and Mythos ones, for me. I like the quirkier colors on the vinyl stuff.

    I have Pre-Ordered both the Mystic Powers and Havoc Skeletor Sofubi figures. Now I need the Mythos and Grey Skull Skeletor figures.

    Also wish they would make some other characters besides Skeletor.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    What characters would you like to see in the Hiraki Sofubi line? Personally, I think that Hordak, Roboto and Orko would translate really well in to the stylized / anime look of the line. Interested to hear your thoughts!

    I would start with He-man, as well as few others like Beast Man, Tri-Klops, Ram Man, Mer-Man, Hordak, etc.

    I don't think there will be any more. The Invader Skeletor figure was cancelled, too. I was surprised to see the Sofubi Skeletor, actually.

    Maybe in a movie year.

    I'd love those as well but for whatever reason this fandom isn't kind to licensed products. A lot of one and dones.

    I remember one post where someone thought these being made negatively impacted the number of classics made that year.

    For me the plethora of different vintage items produced were just as cool as the action figures as a child. I have a two year old and I wish things like Halloween costumes were readily available.

    Such as? The Plushies from Comic Images got a recent 2nd wave, the Statues for PCS seem to be doing nicely enough (so much so we get 2 full bust statues and have gotten almost as many statues as NECA put out in the 200x era), Icon Heroes has put out Castle G, an add-on kit that cost almost as much as Castle G and is coming out with Snake Mountain as well as several other things like letter openers and paperweights, and the MOTU Minis are doing well (so even the argument Classics is killing the market is off).

    So not sure where this idea that one and dones is something that is common with MOTU.

    Thundercats maybe but MOTU licenses seem to sell fine.

    From what I've heard, sales aren't the issue with not seeing much more MOTU from Funko. Just other stuff.

    Likely the usual licensing crap with Mattel... they don't seem to want to make money thru licensing... just from direct raping, er sales.

    So, what are they up to...5 different Skeletor Hikari figures now (Antique, Havoc, Grey Skull, Mystic Powers, and Mythos)? Am I forgetting any?
