    Thats a good idea, I was thinking the same.
    On the other hand this figure now allows people to have an accurate vintage Skeletor by just swopping the armour

    Pretty sweet! I'm glad you are getting one of your favorite figures. He is my favorite Skeletor. I just wish the head was better.

    Yeah he's my favourite Skelly aswell!

    Great that much like She Ra 2.0 this gives us a new skeletor buck to play with. I may just put the buck with that Demo Man head, and give the TRU Skeletor Body I had the Demo Man Head too with this armour set.

    I dont know, It's cool to have choices.

    Looks good, it's good. I'm not overly excited, but yeah, I like it. But then technically I like all the vintage stuff.

    I did like finding this in my email early this morning.

    Like the Dragon connection this year. Kinda hope his bio deals with that some.

    I imagine Skeletor to use the enslaved dragon as bait to lure in Draego-Man to join his ranks.

    The dragon is just too darn cute for an Evil Lord of Destruction. It looks more like a prize he won at a carnival... a very evil carnival that he set up to trap He-man.

    It must be new reveal day. Let's see if the process has been followed;

    - People posting how awesome it is?
    - People posting how something is a little off?
    - People then posting (after some deliberation) that it would have been a bit better if xxxxx change was made?
    - People then becoming Photoshop Sculptors™ to show off how it should look?

    Yep, all is above board. Good show

    lol, so true.
    Very rarely does a figure reveal not go through these stages.
    Also, the obligatory posts with the 'muppet head' insult can be included.

    that is more cartoony and doesn't look like the toy. This one also looks better,
    Attachment 76497
    as does this one.
    Attachment 76498
    and they both still look like the toy.

    But the real reason it looks goofy, is because it does look unrealistic. Not because it is a dragon, but because there is no way the dragon could open or close his mouth with all of those teeth, especially the ones in the back, as they are too close together, and the ones in the back are the worst part of the problem,as eluded to by this post..
    Great post darkmoon766, just look at all those great vintage Dragon Blaster images they could of drawn from for inspiration. I really don't understand why they went in such a different direction with the giant animated looking chompers. Everything else looks fantastic, and I'm still excited to be adding him to my collection; I just wish the 4H had been a little more inspired by the original art on this one.

    I loved Dragon Blaster Skeletor as a kid and always imagined his pet Dragon being released to attack He-Man in the middle of battle. I suppose I just had such a clear image in my mind of his classic inspired head being re-imagined in MOTUC that this choice is a little disappointing to me. I wonder if there is any chance that we could receive a second "cardback" head as a pack in with a latter figure, as with Keldors swords. It's still a MOTUC Dragon Blaster Skeletor so I'll love him either way but here's hoping!

    Yeah. And as so often I don't see it.

    Although...

    You're missing a few!

    -People listing all possible reactions and counter-reactions to product
    -People get banned
    -People go through mid-life crisis
    -People learn yoga and tai-chi for no good reason
    -People start to sell off their collections
    -People still can't afford a down payment on house
    -People sense that hope for the future is futile
    -People feel nostalgic and start to visit the boards again
    -People spend even more money buying back the stuff they sold

    Yet again as a subscriber no reveal email for me. It's not a huge deal as you can pretty much see it on the org straight away however it is a bit annoying that Matty can't even send a simple email to every subscriber!

    In terms of the figure I think he looks great and I like the fact that they've changed Skeletor up a bit in terms of the boots/forearms.

    Arr DB Skeletor, the only variant I had as a kid. I would have prefered an NA Skeletor but am still happy with him. At first I didn't like the dragons teeth, but its grown on me a little already though I still would have preferred a head closer to the mini-comic or card back.

    Original / smaller teeth in the back
    Wow that little change makes it look soooo much better IMO.

    You know what I bet your right.

    Very nice. I should have known this would come out sooner than later. The moving jaw won't compensate for the water squirting feature but oh well...

    What might be a nice concept for kids just doesn't appeal to me now... The whole package looks rather comical. Definate pass, so that means they'll stick another mini-comic in to make me buy it...
