    Maybe the bio will finally give the dragon a name.

    I'm not too keen on the new fins and boots, but I have plenty of Skeletors around to swap bodies.
    Kudos on the realistic chains and the dragon being removable.

    Ah, NA Skeletor....so close....

    I agree, the vintage dragon head was stronger. If there was a way to change it with paint like painting out Clawfull's eyebrows I wouldn't mind as much. Love the new shins, forearms and just about every other part of the figure. To me MOTU isn't goofy. I know it may be for some.Isn't Skeletor is the Lord of Destruction after all?

    So cool! I love the sneak-peek e-mails. And DB Skeletor was one of the few figures I didn't have as a kid so now I will own him!

    It's just that the vintage figures got goofier looking as the years went by. I was hoping they would improve upon the dragon on Skeletor's back and make it look kinda like the vintage figure --- but more like he has a baby pet dragon climbing on his back. I would of even gone as far as to make a tiny little set of wings on the dragon... since dragon's have wings.

    But It is what it is.

    Overall the figure is cool.

    BUT, again the same purple power sword???

    Why not a water blast effect for the dragon?

    or maybe a translucent "water" sword???

    Very happy to see this - I loved the original as a kid, and I was hoping we'd get a DB Skeletor to balance out Thunder Punch He-Man.

    Granamyr probably ate up the tooling costs. Frosta has no ice weapons either.

    TG will probably think up a Star Warsian real name for the dragon.

    I totally agree with you. The vintage dragon head was much stronger and actually less goofy looking. I know some people like MOTU goofy. To me MOTU was never goofy especially when it came to the Lord of Destruction.

    LOL! Skeletor is mutating.

    Evil-Lyn: You're getting worse...
    Skeletor: No! I'm...getting...BETTER!

    Maybe Flying Fist He-Man will come with his vintage HEAD!

    Yeah, I don't get why the dragon head is such a departure from the vintage figure, when everything else we've gotten has been so faithful. Odd.

    (And add me to the list of those who aren't getting these emails )

    Head does look strange. Cost cutting? Since an open mouth would require the jaw be a separate piece and the teeth would require more intricate painting.

    It looks like the front of his armor goes all the way down to his waist. Good job Four Horsemen! Now just make sure the Mattel design team doesn't switch any parts on the final figure

    The Dragon head no longer shoots water, so it can have a full set of teeth. I think it's akin to how awkward fans found Leech without the suction cup mouth.
