    Tweeterhead Lifesize Skeletor Bust - Coming Soon!

    Updated March 2, 2021:

    From Tweeterhead:
    Here he is in all his evil glory! From the darkest, most evil reaches of Eternia, Tweeterhead brings you the Skeletor "Legends" Life-Size Bust!

    This Skeletor is THE piece to own for all MotU fans! Measuring in at about 28.5" tall, by 30.5" wide, by 17" deep, he is truly larger than life! Filled with richly sculpted details from his intricate armor to a face that only a mother could love, this Lord of Destruction is painted so life-like it's as if he jumped right into our world! This Life-Size bust also comes with a posable hood and removable cape so your Skeletor can be just right for you!

    Pre-order will begin Thursday, March 4th at 9am PST. He will cost $999.99 ($75 off if paid in full) with shipping estimates as follows: Continental US $240-$300, Alaska and Hawaii $500-$600. (You will not be paying any higher than these estimates.) For International customers, this piece will be available the same day on Sideshow for you to purchase.

    Artist Credits: Amilcar Fong (Design and Sculpt), David Igo (Design), Jean-Paul Mavinga (Design), Tim Gore (Paint), Chris Guzman (Paint)





















    -------------
    Not much information is out there now, but Tweeterhead posted a link (clicky clicky) to sign up for news on this new bust.

    It looks fantastic!

    I wish I had space for more of these, but I haven't been able to find a place to display the earlier life size busts... even after building a bigger house.

    This came up in a conversation and I'm once again reconsidering this. I don't collect busts, but sometimes exceptions can be made.

    Anyone have any thoughts on how much this might cost?

    I was considering getting one when I saw the initial pics since I'm already collecting the MOTU statue/bust lines from both Sideshow and Tweeterhead, but after looking at the price and the shipping cost of this amazing piece, I had to pass on it.

    I'm happy for those who are getting this bust, it's simply a masterpiece.

    Lovely item. In all honesty, though, I can't imagine many people have the spare space to house something like this. I would say that's just as much a factor as the price.

    This looks amazing - way better then the PCS version. The teeth are a little more modern like 200x.
    It's a bit of a bummer they went with the cloth hood on this one, I think it would have been better if sculpted.
    The cloth hood on the PCS was really bad.

    No thanks. Looks like he's wearing a skull mask. Even if I had the money it'd be an easy pass.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    Just an FYI- Big Bad Toy Store has this for $999 ($150 deposit required) but it says it qualifies for their $4 shipping. I went that route as the money saved on shipping is pretty solid.

    First of all, that bust is AMAZING! This is what I would picture as a motion picture Skeletor. In fact between them and Mondo they have the movie aesthetic covered pretty well.

    For me it's the details in the armor. That tells a story all its own. The stylized bat on it's back is awesome.

    If I had the money that would sit just outside of my favorite home Motu museum. Underneath the spiral staircase.

    He is pretty awesome. I think the cost and space concerns will probably keep me from buying him, though.
