    Moc Skeletor made in China question

    Hi, in this MOC Skeletor is written (erased with the black marker) "Made in China", accessories made in Hong Kong, even if it seems to be aimed at the French market.
    It's the first time I've seen a made in china (old?) motu, do you think it's an original vintage or a modern copy?

    Hi there, perhaps this thread will be of help?

    Personally, I know very little about MOTU vintage figs. But I think in the 80s, China did not have any decent manufacturing / factory capabilities that would have allowed it to make MOTU figures.

    Some more info: commemorative edition comes with "half boots" version of skeletor, so this should be vintage. It's so strange for a 80's China
    This one comes with the "He man Vs Skeletor in the temple of darkness" minicomic.
    Maybe it's not the "1982 Skeletor" but the "Skeletor the orginal" from 1984.

    Maybe some expert can say why in the package is written Made in China?

    Few figures in the late of 80' were also made in China (Skeletor last reissues as your, Rio Blast, Flying Fists He-Man etc as examples).

    Here is an other European Skeletor made in China pictured.

    Your moc is 100% legit and vintage.
