    55-inch tall Skeletor glow-in-the-dark Halloween decoration

    UPDATE October 31th:

    Pixel Dan has a review of the Skeletor decoration. Check it out:



    --------------------------
    UPDATE October 18th:

    The Skeletor Halloween decoration from Super7 is now available to purchase!
    Click here to get yours.

    "A Super7 Exclusive!
    $45.00

    When Super7 decided to make a Skeletor Halloween decoration we wanted to make the greatest Skeletor Halloween decoration ever. However, in the process we kind of got carried away: This Skeletor is life-size! This Skeletor glows-in-the-dark! This Skeletor is made with the thickest heavyweight card stock we could find! This Skeletor is ridiculously large!

    Honesty is our only excuse: Our Skeletor decoration is a perfect storm of impracticality!

    It's a gigantic 55-inches tall glow-in-the-dark Halloween monstrosity! You can hang him anywhere! He's printed on both sides! He's jointed for posing! See if you can count all of the die cuts it took to make this! Yes, it's preposterous.. but no one else would make this.. so we made it ourselves!

    Skeletor comes packaged in a plastic bag with custom header card.

    Includes FREE domestic shipping to addresses in the United States. Due to the enormous size of this item, International Customers will be contacted directly about shipping after an order is placed."

    More details this week!
    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2018!

    Looking forward to hearing the details on this

    We're having a halloween party and are filling the toy room with black lights. This is a must have! I wonder why they waited so long to release this thing?

    I live firmly in the center of the US and was charged $2.77 for shipping so...

    Terrible price. Godawful. But I paid it, and it will be used all year around. Still... sheesh.

    Just a heads up folks: I just placed my order and got charged for shipping. You will want to check your invoice carefully and email them about that free domestic shipping promise if you get charged!

    Nice but expected it to be less than a figure - too pricey for me

    Had a feeling this was going to be over-priced. Was all about it 'til I saw it's $45. No way I'm paying that. I'll make my own.

    4'7" is a big decoration, but it is not exactly "life-size." I was hoping for more glow-in-the-dark details than just the skull.

    All of this. Maybe it will be on sale November 1st for half price. $45 is a joke.

    I have no dog in this race other than to look at it from multiple angles.

    Yeah, it's pricey. But if it's a specialty item produced in lower quantities for our smaller MOTU fan base, it's going to be more expensive.

    And, if it's an item you'll use as a decoration multiple times, or even have up year-long, it's not the worst investment. Think of how much we spend on 6" toys and statues by comparison.

    Would be really cool to have but $45! And that's before the shipping to the UK is added! Just for basically some printed cardboard.

    The shipping issue has been fixed for US residents.

    We can say its a 'small/niche line' all day long and that justifies the price, in fact we've been saying that since 2008, but I just can't give in at these prices anymore.

    I think they deleted my comment on FB - LOL! $45 is way too rich for my blood. I have been picking up MOC (albeit it with card issues, which is OK because I de-box them) vintage She-Ra dolls for that price.

    Imho, MOTU stuff are premium priced, we are a small market after all and S7 need to keep the business going. If we want stuff same as this to keep coming we just have to pay extra. Let's keep the ball rolling and hope that more can be new fans to add to the market. It is great time to be a MOTU fans todag.
