    Sorry guys. I understand the painted black plastic problem, but this constant complaining about DBS's face seems like another nitpick that has snowballed. So what they left the blackwash kff this one. The bright green of his face is supposed to accent the green on the shackle and armor. But mostly, it's a 6th Skeletor face variation. I like how they're keeping with the variety.

    The black plastic is either lazy cost cutting or a terrible "design choice". And, if you meant to write Spikor above, I agree... my Spikor has black joints which were that way before I even opened the packaging

    He looks like he's wearing green lipstick (teethstick?)... Maybe they want him to look more iconic... like the Joker?

    That's the problem. Again, I'm annoyed that these things are called "high-end" but either their paint, methods, or design decisions are inferior!

    He looks silly to me! Lucky I've got a spare original head I can swap out. Not everyone has a spare though!

    IMO, the team around Ruben has made some really bad decisions with so many great figures, Stinkor, Frosta, now DB Skeletor.

    Remember, it was also Ruben who came up with all the dreadful snake variants of the 200x line.

    It makes me want to ask: Why does Ruben hate MOTU so much?

    Let's not forget it was Ruben's great idea to put a GREEN Clawful mace in the new weapons pack!!

    Skeletor's back
    Regarding the dragon - I really expected that collar to be removable from the body.
    It would have been nice to move the lock to either side of the dragon's neck...

    And those shoulders...
    Man, that painted plastic is really getting on my nerves...
    Mattel is really trying everything to **** me off BIG TIME
    Press down on dragon's head. It will bite off your frickin' fingers !!!

    Ugh! I really was looking forward to making a "vintage toy style" Skeletor by simply swapping the trunks on DBS.

    Now that I see that he is another fully painted figure, that type of swap is out of the question as the paint will undoubtedly rub off during the process. Hopefully, the blue skin is close enough in color so I can still do a forearm swap. But there is paint rub risk still there as well, albeit lesser of a risk.

    Taking a risk on a $20 + $9 shipping figure makes me not even want to bother to try.

    I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before, but if you look at Dragon Blaster Skeletor's page in the MOTUC gallery on Matty, the back picture is actually of the vintage figure. I just thought it was rather funny that this happened and I'm curious if it was on purpose. The figure they show is actually fairly worn and has black splotches on his legs which is even funnier considering the black plastic controversy. Anyway just thoughI'd share
