It's no secret that I collect Masters of the Universe stuff, right? I try to mix a lot of newly released product into 31 Days of Toy Terror and this year Skeletor is definitely showing up a few times. Today I'm checking out the 200x inspired Skeletor figure from series 9 of Mattel's Masters of the Universe Origins. Based on the Skeletor action figure from the 2002 Masters of the Universe revival, this guy still maintains the Masters of the Universe Origins aesthetic but features a new portrait and some new accessories which capture the unique style of that era. I reviewed the 200x He-Man back in August so now it's time to give the most powerful man in the universe his fearsome foe. Let's check out Skeletor after the break...
Height: 5 3/4ths inches
Articulation: Swivel/ hinge ankles, boot swivels, swivel/hinge knees, balljointed hips, swivel waist, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel/hinge elbows, swivel/hinge wrists, and a double balljointed head.
Accessories: Harness, belt sword, staff, and minicomic.
Non-Scalper Price: $16-$19 dollars
* Unfortunately, I don't know what the comic is called or what's going on because the comic has no word balloons. Apparently this is the way the minicomics are handled on the multi-lingual packaging versions, and somehow I managed to get that one. Nothing wrong with multi-lingual packaging but it sucks to get half of a comic book. I ordered mine through a standard US based e-tailer, so I'm now sure why Mattel shipped them this version of the figures.
Skeletor/ Keldor is one of my favorite villains of all time and he has his own review archive! Check out Snake Mountain for all of my reviews of the Evil Lord of Destruction who, by his own admission, "Is not nice!"
