Action Figure Review: Skeletor (Midnight) from Masters of the Universe ReAction by Super7
Height: 3 3/4ths inches
Articulation: Swivel hips, swivel shoulders, and a swivel head.
Accessories: Havoc staff
Original Retail Price: $10 dollars
* On the left is the Skeletor (Midnight) variant while the standard Skeletor is on the right. As you can tell, these are simple paint variants, as is the Los Amos Skeletor I've reviewed previously, too.
* If you want the full scoop on the sculpt, check out my review of the Los Amos Skeletor. It was the first version of this sculpt I reviewed, so I went the most in depth with it. This guy's just a repaint but he's a darn fine repaint for sure. That black and grey is just killer. I loved how the 200x line gave Skeletor some legitimately different color schemes so it's fun to see that continued here.
* This guy looks so, so creepy and cool with those red eyes. I love it! Again, it's simple but it is so darn effective. I love the evil look of Skeletor here!
* Skeletor comes with the same Havoc Staff that the previous figures of the character have included but this time it's cast in all black, just like a Spinal Tap album cover.
* I really, really don't like the whole trend towards releasing blind bagged/ blind boxed items. Can someone explain to me the appeal of blind boxing a $10 dollar item like this targeted towards collectors? Why can't I just buy all of the figures individually, as I very well might if I could buy them like nearly every other figure released.
I've reviewed quite a few other Skeletor/ Keldor items: Besides the various Series 3, Series 2, Series 1, and the exclusive purple M.U.S.C.L.E. versions I've also reviewed the MOTUC Laser Light Skeletor and Terror Claws Skeletor, the Super7 Ultimates Filmation Skeletor, the Super7 Possessed Skeletor, the Mega Construx Battle for Eternia Skeletor and Wind Raider Attack Skeletor, the 200x Skeletor minifigure from the Heroes vs. Villains Gift Pack, the Funko VYNL Skeletor, and the ReAction Los Amos Skeletor.
