    Would you rather have LL Skeletor or TC Skeletor in classics?

    I'm a big fan of the LL Skeletor design.Even though I didn't care for the transition into outerspace,the figure itself trumps Terrorbras Skeletor.

    Laser Light. The original is very odd looking (and even squattier than other versions - looks like he's about to take a steamy one in the woods), but I'd really like to see the 4H take on him. The original sculpt isn't that great, but the overall design is interesting.

    TerrorBras Skeletor isn't all that interesting. In fact they could just include the bra and claws as accessories with Laser Light, and people could use them on the standard Skeletor if they wanted to.

    While I definitely want to see both eventually, I'd prefer to see Terror Claws Skeletor first.

    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....

    I can't vote, Laser Light Skeletor is the only Skeletor vintage variant that I didn't like and still don't like but the 4H can surprise me... so I can't vote...

    This can be a solution... And I hope that they will transform the odd bra armor in a complete armor...

    these results are outrageous! LL skeletor is one of the two last vintage figures ever to be made to the original MOTU line.
    Filled with details, unique sculpt and features, the link between vintage and NA, and yet these results suggest people would rather buy yet another skeletor iteration with a pink armour and gloves?

    TC would not be a refreshing figure at all, i seriously hope he's given the least priority!

    I think most people don't have an emotional connection with LL skeletor. sports bra aside, Terror Claws skeletor really captured my imagination as a kid, LL skelly, i saw cardback images I wasn't fond of his head sculpt's radical change but I looked for him still. I wanted him but I wasn't as excited as when i saw other variants.

    i can understand many USAers not feeling emotionally attached to this figure as it was an euro exclusive, thus not being part of many's childhood, STILL, when you think about TC skeletor (which btw is one of the vintage figures i like and own proudly), you can probably imagine how it will turn out:

    a pink armour
    extended gloves
    extra dinosaur piece

    This is mainly an accessories pack! Do we really want (for now) another snake man-at-arms like variant? Just think of what the 4HM could do with this design:





    Would love to see something different for a change, RAM-MAN for example was such a refreshing figure

    I do have an emotional connection with LL Skeletor - it is one of revulsion. I own this vintage figure, but I don't like it as Skeletor is not a cyborg in my MOTUniverse.

    Give me the Terror Claws!

    I read on a blog or a post somewhere that said that if you really look at both figures, LL Skeletor and NA Skeletor are very similar. It's completely true. They're both covered in wiring and machinery, they have that copper colored chest. So I'm going to vote LL Skeletor because he doubles as NA Skeletor too. They could call him "Galactic Antagonist Skeletor" or whatever the NA-era is called, and his title could be "evil lord of laser light". Boomsauce, perfect.

    Neither, so no vote for me. The only variants I owned or cared about as a kid were the battle armor figures, and since I now have those every new variant figure they make is just sub money being spent on something I'd rather not have.

    I want both, but if I had to choose only 1 then I would choose Laser Light Skeletor because I don't own him in the vintage line due to his rarity.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    I concur.

    Hopefully Ol Terror Claws has his sports bra problem fixed, I always like the idea and the claws.

    Laser Light needs to have love and money put into it, maybe even some LED's and translucent parts.

    I voted for LL Skeletor, mixed with NA Skeletor. They are almost the same in a different scale

    yeah, i made this comparison in my blog, but i'm not sure this could be a combo figure like trapjaw\kronis, there are a lot of similarities but also a main colour diference in the chest piece, boots etc
