    The Skelcon guy doesn't bother me,
    plus, there are gonna be lots of collectors
    willing to get rid of him so no need to worry
    about this.
    No other army builders can suffer from the Horde Troopers syndrome
    by the way.

    Mattel doesn't seem to know what to do with Anti Eternia He-man. They have said nothing about him at all but showed him at SDCC last year and again at Toy Fair this past weekand still have no news as to how he will be offered, So I say Bcrduke had a great Idea swap out the figures and put Anti Eternia He-Man with the Roton and make the skelcon a single carded figure or an army builder Two Pack.
    Looking forward to a very bright 2016 with MOTUC Collectors Choice, He-Man and the Masters Of the Universe animated Filmation line, Thundercats & SNAKE MOUNTAIN

    I doubt this, and when they hit after market expect them to rise high in price.

    Skelcon. Or you could just make Skelcon available as the traveling convention figure, or -gasp- "normally". Either way it will still be easier to get multiple Skelcon's as a chase figure or exclusive than it would if it was packed with Roton.


    Roton would look awesome with Anti Eternia He-man. All that red and black. And besides, there is no way to come up with another figure to pack in with it before it is released, unless you put off it's release at least another 6 months or more.

    Keep Skelcon with Roton. Please do NOT do the Anti-He-Man swap, I am not in favor of this.

    I'm not down with the anti he man either. I'd rather him in a single release and done as the spirit of hordak and grayskull. But I also think if a figure is put in, just make up a character like they did with the sky sled. That figure sucked, but he also had the potential to be an army builder to make him more of a wanted character.

    Package it with Anti He-Man. The color scheme even matches fantastic. THIS would be a huge win win.

    They didn't make up Sky-High any more than Anti-Eternia He-man.

    He is actually on the cross sell poster.






    There was never any official art for Ant-Eternia He-Man.

    could there maybe be a better choice? Sure. But keep the Skelcon. The way I figure it this is they only way they could be certain to slip it in and I am OVER THE MOON that this is happening. I will accept a Skelcon any way they can rationalize it. I really hope someone wants to sell theirs and just keep their roton because I want 2 Skelcons and not 2 Rotons. I'm excited to see someone pawn these off.

    Why does every vehicle have to come with a figure now?

    The Roton can sell just fine on its own, and the Skelcons should come in an army-builder 2-Pack!

    Man, I didn't know that's where he came from. Still say make a cheap character up and toss him in. Leave army builders for single or 2 packs and make bank off army building customers. They think by combining 2 wants creates more sales. I beg to differ in this situation.

    I don't mind the Skelcon coming with the Roton but I voted for another figure. I'm getting the Roton not matter what figure it comes with or none at all, it looks great! I love the Skelcon and would like to have about 3 of them but if the only way to get one is via the Roton then I'll just get the 1. Basically Mattel will get more money out of me, and probably others, if we can get that troop singly in order to buy more. Unless the Skelcon is made available singly later on, that works for me as well.

    I personally feel a lot of fans would like to have more than just one Skelecon warrior. So it's a little unfair it's a pack in. Plus it makes the vehicle more pricey.

    I am one of those that wanted to army build the Skelcon and am not overly happy about the choice to pack them with the Roton.

    Based on the artwork posted above I think it would have been cool to pack Beast Man with it. He's a character that lots of people missed out on and who sells for silly amounts on the secondary market. Such silly amounts that plenty of people would be better off buying this vehicle to get that figure.

    Of course, packing Beast Man with the Roton could harm sales for the 2.0 Beastman being released later this year, which is probably why it didn't happen. Another option would be to include an alternate version of an Evil Warrior - the same thing they did with the Battle Ram (200x MAA) and Talon Fighter (Filmation Teela). 200x Spikor would have been a cool choice. Or Filmation Jitsu might have made some sense.

    I am looking forward to having the Roton in my collection. I just really wish there was a way to get 3 or 4 Skelcons without having to buy 3 or 4 vehicles.

    I think that Lodar would have been a good figure to pack with the Roton.

    While I'd love to get Lodar, I don't think he belongs with the Roton. He's not an Evil warrior associated with Skeletor.

    Makes no difference to me. I only want the Roton, so... he becomes trade bait for me. And people are definitely going to want multiples of the Skelecons.
