Alexx has a blog?! Come on in and check out Toys and Tomfoolery! You won't regret it...until the next morning.
I expected this variant of Skeletor. Hmmmmm really nice have Skeletor having diffrent arms and feets. So his Dragon gonn have ball-jointed head? Maybe people might try Draego-Man with it?
Love this figure, he looks absolutlety perfect!
I love the Whiplash forearms and Khan shin guards... That`s the right thing to do!
Anyway, yes...those who don't like it can put the armour on a spare Skeletor, or buy a cheap Mo-Larr two pack for the Skeletor body. I just got one for $12!
THIS is a good way to change a character up that we keep getting over and over again. Stinkor arm switch = bad. NEW, updated, 80's toy accurate body parts = good.
Also, I'm pretty sure that's a BABY dragon Skeletor has.

Wow I can't wait
San Diego can't get here sooner
This is crazy... I was walking out to my mailbox today and this figure came to my mind and I thought he'd be the next Skeletor Variant I'd love to see made! HA!!!
Never had him as a kid, but I've been waiting for this one since I saw someone on here customize up one that looked sweet!
At MATTYCOLLECTOR.com, 'ALL SALES ARE FINAL'...UNLESS it's in THEIR ADVANTAGE to not be...
Find me on Facebook!
But he made no contribution to the figure itself lol, outside of commissioning the 4 horsemen.
With no slight to scott, I would say terrific job 4 horsemen studios :-)
I will NEVER believe that Mermista beheaded Mer-Man! You sit on a throne of lies.... and smell of beef and cheese, bio writer!!!!
Yes! Got my email as well! I LOVE him! DB Skelly was always my favorite Skeletor variant! I love the huge gnarly teeth they gave the little dragon! The reptile forearms and shins are appropriate for this particular Skelly incarnation. The only thing that would have made this figure better would have been the inclusion of the Alkala Skeletor head as an alternate head. Oh well…still a fantastic sculpt!
200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!
Love this reveal, but it would be nice if I actually got the bloody e-mails. I am thrilled with the look of this figure and I do hope he comes with the Keldor swords!

Happily invading Castle Grayskull with hippos is my true hobby.
Awesome looking figure! I can't wait!
I like the new shins for variety's sake, but I'm not crazy about the Whiplash forearms being used. I'd have preferred to keep them unique to Whiplash and Kobra Khan for now. I'm digging the dragon.
Super excited for more Skeletors.
I do hope the dragon detaches and can be displayed as his own character. That would be nice.
I'm with chuc98 on this one.
I love seeing ol' Bonehead with chains and the ghoulish needle-toothed Dragon on his back!
It was a great look for Skeletor back in the day, and this version of him really stands out as a top notch variant.
The choice to "evolve" the "looks of Skeletor" is awesome with the new forearms and boots!
As long as his belly piece is a standard Skeletor belly underneath the armor, this figure combined with the Alcala head and the standard Skeletor gives a great range of possible looks that people can display.
I like the idea that Skeletor is kind of "evolving" throughout this series. It's makes sense with where he's going what with his techno look in NA. I just like that it keeps things fresh with the character. I'm an old minicomic guy that's been with MotU from the beginning, so I love my standard Skeletor for the most part. But I can also appreciate and enjoy the idea of switching him up a bit. The guy is deep into weird magics so I'm sure his different looks tie into various ways he's manipulated himself to try and "one up" He-Man.
The guys did a fantastic job with this one, VERY excited to add him to the collection.

Later figures from 1984 onward had cardback art, but it was a drawing of the TOY itself, not the CHARACTER.

Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....
Anyway, for MOTU, there aren't as many examples where I liked the cardback more. Like MAA...I was disappointed they went cardback with him. If Ram-Man is orange, I will be extremely disappointed. I HATE ORANGE! Except for Castaspella. I prefer her toy colours over Filmation.
The good thing about this line, I feel, is the ability to kit-bash whatever you like most as the releases go on. You want an Alcala Skeletor - pop the head on! You want Toy Skeletor, put version 1's armour on DB Skeletor. She-Ra...look at the options there! Well...except for Toy She-Ra. We don't have that yet. Hopefully soon!

Very nice! And I'm lovin' the fact that the dragon is detachable. I'm hoping he's fully posable/articulated.
As for the NA variants, I'm calling it - 2013 will be FF He-Man and TC Skele. 2014 will be LP HM and LL Skeletor. LL Skele will have swappable accessories that will allow you to create NA Skeletor, and NA He-Man will be released in 2015.
We'll get a He-Man and Skeletor variant for every year that MOTUC exists. So perhaps Snake Armor He-Man and DOD Skele in 2016. In 2017, Motion Pic HM and Skele. Ice Armor HM and BB Skeletor after that...

Happy for those who wanted DB Skeletor, but I seriously hope the next variant is something other than MOTU.
Loved the vintage figure and the mini comic. LOOOOOVE this MOTUC variant.
So happy with the real metal chains and the dragon!
I hope they keep going in order with the vintage variants...because I really want Terror Claws Skeletor too and that will bring an end to the vintage variants.
