    I am torn.

    Torn like an abandoned piece of toilet paper left hanging on the roll... not enough of me to be useful but enough of me to mean I don't get put out of my misery and binned.

    I like both versions and wish they could be both made or at least represented with one figure, but I don't see how they could make both of them work with just a swappable head. I am really not sure which one I would like best... but my gut tells me we should expect the first version before the Disks of Doom varient.

    If we get Laser Light Skeletor, I could see his NA release being the Disks of Doom version. LL Skeletor is so close to NA Skeletor that releasing both might seem redundant.

    I really want to see what the Horsemen could do with the deformed details on the standard NA Skeletor, but the DoD version is one of the cooler ones. Maybe an extra head and armor like we got with He-Man to switch out?

    As long as he doesn't have eyeballs, I will be happy! I do prefer the skull armor though.

    I figure we will get one NA Skeletor, with parts/accessories needed to make a few, like NA He-Man.....

    I'm sorry, I can't get on board with you there. I DO love the Discs of Doom version (though I think I like the Battle Blade one better) I would really like the first version if we only get one NA Skeletor. Especially since we have the first version of NA He-Man.

    The first version of NA Skeletor was my...well it was my first NA Skeletor and there's a LOT of nostalgia in him. I can't help choosing him if we are only gona get one.

    The 1st NA Skeletor is almost the same design as the Laser Light Skeletor. Only other NA ones look different.

    I want the original, with the cape, like I had when I was young. I hope everyone here can understand that.

    You can start a poll on this one, but the winner is the regular NA skeletor. Maybe we can get discs of doom past 2015

    Maybe an NA sub .... Now that would be cool

    Both original NA Skeletor and Disk of Doom Skeletor with the later one being based more on the cartoon version of this armor.

    I think we should get both:

    -Laser Light/NA Skeletor
    -Disks of Doom Skeletor

    We're certainly gonna get the Laser Light variants sooner or later come hell or high water (because the vintage-only people would go on a hunger strike if they didn't release those, especially given their vintage releases have become highly-prized "rarities"), and as others have pointed out, Laser Light Skeletor and NA Skeletor are minor variations on the same theme, so one release (named however you prefer) should cover both (by including alternate hooded vs. helmeted heads or whatever). Then, Disks of Doom would be the NA-specific release "to go with" the NA He-Man release.

    WOW...that can't be a coincidence! I mean GEEZE it looks almost just like the Disks of Doom version, save for some things here and there. Even the fists are drawn in such a way that you would if you were looking at his closed fist on the figure! The skull on the chest is WAY too close, as well. And I mean what are the odds they call it Generations of Doom and the figure is Disks of Doom? There's gotta be some info on this somewhere! Very interesting.

    I kind of agree with this.

    The way I see it, LL and NA are basically the same. And DD and BB are nearly the same. Just give us different heads and I'd be happy buying two of both to display.

    Disks of Doom/Battle Blades. With the NA Havoc Staff.

    It was his look in 92% of the cartoon and it's a greater deviation from the original series look.

    I also made the argument for DoD before, but it got rolled into the variant discussion thread.

    First Toon Version. Though Second Toon Version obviously was in the show more, it's just hideous. And the toy version of the same? GAH!

    How would you guys feel about getting both the original NA Skeletor and Disk of Doom Skeletor in one release? Two heads, both sets of armor, Vykron Tanks Top style boots to clip over his legs and his NA Havoc Staff. I think this may be the best way of doing NA Skeletor and I don't think it's too much of a stretch considering just how much we got with NA He-Man.

    I'd prefer to see Disks of Doom Skelly as he was more prominent in the cartoon - but I imagine we'll see the first version before anyone else.

    I am personally I fan of the original 1st NA Skeletor look (cartoon/commercials) but understand that the 2nd was more featured in the animated series by a large margin.

    Um, no, I wouldn't make much sense to try to blend two mutually divergent versions into one release, when each happens to be very similar to another Skeletor variant. The "sensical" releases are {Laser Light + NA} and {Disks of Doom + Battle Blade}. The former should nominally be released as Laser Light Skeletor and the latter as Disks of Doom Skeletor, so that only the latter would carry the NA sticker (to "pair" with the GP He-Man release), whereas the former would "count" as a "vintage" slot (and "pair" with a future Laser Light He-Man release). Although they should contain the accessories necessary to recreate the NA Skeletor and Battle Blade Skeletor variants respectively (so we would get 4 variants in just 2 slots). But, hey, if (against all likelihood) Mattel were willing to give us a single-carded "4-in-1" release containing all the pieces to recreate all 4 variants while taking up just 1 development slot, then by all means they should go ahead with that.
