OK, I know that the cartoon has a few issues. And although the figures had some cool designs I feel they just weren't as good as regular MOTU.
However, what did kick all kinds of a*s in NA was the audio tape that came with the UK figure

If you've never heard it I recommend a listen, there's the odd hokey-part but overall it was really well done and I have always loved it, the music is really dramatic and the voices and effects are pretty good.
For me contains one of my favourite renditions of Skeletor. He sounds so crazy and evil when he's yelling at his minions or screaming at the Sorceress. You can really imagine he's gone mental after so many years of losing on Eternia, he's just lost it and decided to head into space. Brilliant. Give it a listen and share your thoughts!
