    Favourite Skeletor outfit?

    We were fortunate to get to see Skeletor change his look a few times during the New Adventures, based on his three action figure releases. But which outfit do you think was the best?

    Personally I prefer his Discs of Doom armor and helmet, as well as his yellow skull and red eyes, I think he looks more menacing like this. But I think he looked even more menacing when he lost his helmet, theres something quite unsettling about his skull with the ragged hair.

    I like his first outfit, particularly the action figure. The cape looked good, but his grey skull and white cartoony eyes made him look less intimidating.

    On the figures, I prefer his first look which also looked damn great in the UK/European comics.
    On the cartoon show, I preferred his Disks of Doom dress with the Battle Blade head.

    Original was sweet because of the cape and for this picture:

    But Discs of Doom is a sweet figure too...

    Definitely DOD Skeletor. The armor looked more fitting for the style of the show and they finally fixed the eyes with this particular design.

    I think I like the first outfit the best. Disks of Doom was certainly cool, but I couldn't get him to hold his staff, and hat always disappointed me! Same with the Battle Blade version. However, the Battle Blade version is a bit higher, I think, because it was just so awesome! He looked the most like a demon in that form. The armor was huge, he had this ugly hair coming off him; it was cool!

    The original outfit is good.
    The action figure is poor (too skinny) but the look is good.

    For many many years I preferred the first look, where he looked like hes wearing a Superman costume, but fairly recently for the first time since 1990 I actually find the DOD look more suiting the cybernetic-techno feel of the show better. I cant decide

    The Disks of Doom version, definitely. It's got a more unique look and feel to it than the first look, which is just the Laser Light Skeletor with a heavy dose of pink and a red cape.

    What I like about the original is his gray skin and the clear distinction between teeth and skin. The gray skin and eyes give him the look of an advancely decomposed body, its sort of like the keeper in Tales From The Crypt
