Minifigure Review: Skeletor (Blue) from Masters of the Universe Micro Vinyl by Super7

 A little over a week ago I reviewed Super7's Micro Vinyl He-Man they sold at the Five Points Festival and now I'm checking out his arch-nemesis: Skeletor! Both He-Man and Skeletor were available in either blue or orange so rather than buying one of each (these guys were a tad pricey at $10 each) I went with an orange He-Man and a blue Skeletor. Blue just seemed more fitting for Skeletor, you know? I don't own many Japanese vinyl toys of this sort so getting these two guys in the mail definitely added something a but unique to my collection. Let's check out this miniature Skeletor after the break...

 The Facts:

Height: 1 3/4ths inches

Articulation: Swivel head

Accessories: None

Non-Scalper Price: $10 dollars

* Skeletor is a soft, hollow vinyl figure with a rather interesting feel to him. It's tough to compare him to something but I guess I'd compare his texture to those cool Mold-a-Rama wax statues that used to come out of machines. Skeletor's all plastic, though, and his sculpt is quite sharp. He's not as shiny as He-Man, so you can make out the details a bit better.
   The proportions are exaggerated a bit but all of the details from the vintage toy seem to be here: The bones on his armor, weird frills on his arms, and he's carrying his Havoc Staff in his right hand. He's definitely different than a M.U.S.C.L.E. figure which, for me, is the gold standard for minifigures. He's still cool, though, and adds something unique to your Skeletor collection (I'm assuming you have a Skeletor collection if you read this website). He's a Good and a 1/2 minifigure and a fun find, although he seems to be long sold out by this point. The orange one is still available, though, as of this writing.

    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 and Midnight Skeletor.
