    Would you like an alternate Alcala head with MOTUC Skeletor?

    I voted yea. BUT...is it possible for an alternate head to be included at this point? Sure Skelly is still 4 months off, but at this point I'd hope that he's all finalized from figure design down to how he'd be secured in the package. And, about the package, I'd guess the way all his accessories will be fitted in are finalized as well. Fitting in another "accessory" at this point might not be an option. Maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea to ask for a second head if they release a battle armor Skeletor?

    I wouldn't mind an Alcala head, but my first choice for an alternate head would be a Filmation inspired head.

    The one head that I don't want included at all is a Keldor head. I hated that generic mustached villain look he had in the 2k2 line and if they include a Keldor head, I hope they come up with something completely new.

    Most Wanted Filmation: Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder, Teela, He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak head.

    No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!

    A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!

    Sure! An Alcala-head would sit nicely. Cold, grotesque, and evil.

    To be frank, although I totally dig the "Alcala MotUs", I'd rather like a Filmation head.

    And speaking of, a complete Larry Houston Style Skeletor would be awesome:
    "Why's Dragstor riding on Night Stalker?" "Cause he can."

    He did the first four yes.
    He also did the record book with two stories that came with Point Dread and the Talon Fighter.
    He also did some ink work on the DC comics miniseries.
    He also did some of the series 3 minicomics: Dragons Gift, Masks of Power, Siege of Avion, and The Obelisk!



    If you know me at all, you KNOW I want an Alcala Skeletor Head!!!
    WAY before I'd ever want to see a Filmation head.

    For me the skeletor┤s head showed in the toyfare cover magazine looks like Alfredo Alcala and George Tusca style.

    I voted yes because I love alcala's art, but honestly, I think the sculpt already looks quite a bit like Alcala's Skeletor. If they go to the trouble of including a second head, I think I'd prefer a Texeira-style one. He's my favorite MOTU artist after Alcala himself, and his skeletor was awesome.

    If it came with another head fine but I don't see teh need to be honest.
    I think the head had already got an Alcala vibe to it.

    It just needs that paint job to bring out the details more like in Beana's altered photo on the other thread about Skeletor.

    No need for another head lads!

    Says YOU!

    I think an Alcala head could be done in a manner that's unique from the standard head that would make even you want it badly!!!

    Oh man, I wouldn't complain if they made it but I don't think they will.
    So I just think focusing on getting the existing head right by means of paint is more important!

    I would go for the scariest evil looking head they can come up with. I'm not sure Alcala hit it and not the toyfare pic either. Something with Squitier eyes or something. Still looks a little too Kid Friendly for me. I want something that you look at and say THAT is the big Bad of Eternia.

    My favorite was the 200x head. That was creepy. Lets get something like that with the bigger scale


    As for a Keldor head? Forget that. Lets just get a whole Keldor Figure. There should be more difference between Keldor and Skeletor than just the head. He'd have different human feet, and probably shouldn't have the claws hands either.
