    I like it other than the fact that it's not open or openable. But if they had done that then the teeth would have been all round. So overall I said I like it.

    I think the dragon's mouth should have been sculpted open at least, so that Mattel can add a fire breath plug-in later. The dragon is supposed to be part of Dragon BLASTER Skeletor -- but he can't do much blasting when his mouth is closed.

    I "like" it, but don't love it. However, overall, I love DB Skeletor!
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    I think it's the most poorly sculpted thing in MOTUC. It looks like the Flinstone's pet dinosaur. Spout Snout looks menacing next to this dragon. Cringer looks more menacing than this dragon.

    Yes, I quite like it!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    i voted i don't like it; but i don't mean that i hate it ...

    i just think if mattel re-sculpted the mouth better and added a small-articulation joint - we could have a closer match to the original ...

    I don't like it that much. Not just the mouth but the head in general, there's something that doesn't click for me and this one is all on the 4HM. I can't see a natural flow from the head sculpt to the rest of the body.

    Yes it could have been a little better in terms of the articulations and all, but I quite like the look of it. IMO the old design was the cheesy one, and I'm thinking to get two extras of DBS, so I could use the new dragon heads on my second Draego-Man, and to replace that cheesy puppet looking Clawful's head.

    It may be goofy, but at least it looks like the original, and is not biologically and mechanically impossible. Besides that, I don't think the MOTUC one looks that great even as a surreal art piece. If the horsemen did sculpt this, it is one of the few times I have been let down. I liked Leech's head, It was just too big for the regular buck. Clawfull's head at least looked vintage. I don't understand this one at all.
    This !!!

    The Horsemen usually excel at rendering animals. Their sculpts are always so refined, detailed and well thought out. Why they decided to make the dragon's teeth so clunky is beyond me.

    The eyes look cool, but his mouth should have been open rather than sporting a weird clenched grin.

    If nine hundred He-Man.Org members get eaten by Thundercats fans, but neither of them has a toyline, does it still count as a fan movement?

    I'm pretty disappointed with it. I love the way they did Leech and Kobra Khan, I wish it was more like that. I also liked the heads on Clawful, Buzz-off, and Roboto, I thought they were faithful updates of the vintage figures. But this, it doesn't look anything like the vintage figure or the cardback art, I don't know what exactly the 4HM were trying to do with this one.

    I was thinking the exact same thing.

    if they wanted to have it closed to keep it one sculpt they could have put a flame effect in between the teeth and have a blast effect add-on

    I hate it.
    As far as I am concerned 4 Horsemen rule, everything they did for this line is perfect.... except this head... I don't want a Draego-Man clone, of course, but it's too 200x style with these out-of-proportion teeth.
    I really don't like it so I bought the vintage DB Skeletor, one of the coolest variant ever!
    This is what I was expectin' from 4H:

    I wanted the tongue!

    Customers of the world, now it's your time to make a lot of money as you did with the Stinkor's swapped forearms.
    Begin to scuplt the perfect Dragon head!

    Looks weird, there is just something wrong with how it looks.
    The teeth on the vintage one look bether and more correct.
