standard 10 inch Skeletor last month but today I'm checking out the Disco Skeletor variant. I've discussed the story behind Disco Skeletor before so today I'm just checking out this figure. Ready for an absolutely massive POP! vinyl of one of the gaudiest versions of Skeletor around? Then join me after the break...
Height: 9 1/2 inches
Articulation: Swivel head
Non-Scalper Price: $35 dollars
* Like with the standard 10 inch Skeletor, the first thing about this guy that just grabs your attention is how
large he is! Well, OK, maybe for Disco Skeletor it's his crazy colors. But his size? Definitely the second thing you'll notice. Yeah, he's only 9 1/2 inches tall, but he's really quite
bulky very heavy, too. There's something really appealing and
very eye-catching about a POP! this big!
* I like this Skeletor sculpt quite a bit. While he's much larger
than your standard POP! vinyls his design is a real improvement from the original POP! figure. I love the sideways fist (Skeletor looks like he's
explaining some evil scheme to his minions!) and, as always, the ability
to turn the head allows you to give the figure a bit more of a pose when on display.
* The headsculpt is really good here. I love this look much more than the
first POP! Skeletor's portrait. The yellow of the skull really pops here
and while he doesn't have red eyes, the outlines of the individual teeth and the green under his chin stand out. I know most collectors don't tend to think of Funko
when they think of impressive sculpting but there really is something
quite impressive about the stylized work here, especially when seen in
* Not only is the sculpt nice here but the multiple colors look great underneath that gold armor. This is definitely a funky costume Disco Skeletor is rocking, but that's OK! Just get down at Snake Mountain all you crazy, sexy, beautiful disco people!
* Skeletor always has to come with his trusty Havoc Staff, doesn't he?
The details on the headpiece are fabulous! The Havoc Staff is also rocking the disco color scheme with a yellow skull, purple horns, and a gold shaft.
Which disco classic do you imagine Skeletor likes to play on disco night down at Snake Mountain? Let us know in the comments below!
