Interesting read about the direction the MOTUC line may be taking:

That's odd!

Well it pretty much said the 200x line as it was is dead, but they may revisit those designs in the MOTUC style later on.

They showed a concept drawing of a MOTUC Hordak. I should have saved it.

Anyway, got in all my SDCC goodies on Thursday, including Greyskull. Such an awesome figure & I tell you now....try & get the set with electronics, you won't be disappointed! The sounds & lightning effect are really cool.

They all come like that with the eyes looking up, as stated by several people on Heman.org, I got one of each coming soon (had the boxes opened to check) via the org, and was worried he wouldnt get through because of the electrics when I first organised some one to grab me a couple(4), but Im glad to see them surfacing.

Cant wait.

Very Happy

I actually like the eyes. I think they work really well looking up. It is probably to give him a slightly more warrior glance because in his general slightly hunched stance, he doesn't look like he's looking up, just like he's doing that intense 'head down eyes up' look.

Did we see the Skeletor comparison pic:



So they are updating certain features of the figures, his feet are different to the original here. Though I'm sure most would have preferred a regular foot.

The only small nitpick I would have is to see Skelly with a more lean gaunt muscular tone. I understand they are staying true to the classic look though, and are probably going to re-use the same body type. Other than that, excellent looking figure!!!

Let me know.

Take Care,

Darren it was at Titan's Towers, a toy store on the Gold Coast. They'd had theirs shipped straight from SDCC - the electronics version isn't going to be sold via the mattel site alas.

Be carefull, with talk like that, you might anger the "die-hard fans"!

Looking great so far.

I wonder if Skel will actually have that quality deco on the final product. Neutral

I see 4 different shades of purple...

It's like halfway between the old figure and a perfect Skeletor. Ah well, 200X will have to do me. Sad

I like , but.... I no like at the same time. But I know later on I will likey and then it will be too hard to get, oh the woes.

I guess Im just not into the old type cast style that much at the moment, when 200x hit and I wasnt into collecting them that much I grabbed the odd one here and there, and then really got into them a year or so too late I might add, I was onto them like a fat kid is on cake!!!

I liked the more mature style of the 200x, it was more evil for the bad guys designs, with these Skeletor looks like something all cuddly.... Hes supposed to be the bad guy, the antichrist!!!

But then on the paint apps I like the smooth paint jobs, ah screw it I'll get em - its only money and what else am I going to do with it????

Man that is the ultimate perfect Skeletor, i am so pumped for this line, hopefully everyone gets behind it in a big way and we get vehicles and playsets!! Oh and nighty i can see what you mean about the more gaunt muscular tone, i just really love the reuse of the body parts like the original line, but i digress being an "angered die hard fan"......Wink Cool

I like that new Skeletor. Chiefly because he doesn't look heaps scary, but instead still looks kind of, well, gay

A bit of an update with these figs, it would seem that no 2000x characters will see the light of day for the time being anyway, think Count Marzo, Evilseed etc... here is a link to the article at Toynewsi

It's the guns Simmo is a sucker for men with big arms to hold him in. Kidding aside i see what you mean.

Skeletor looks good but not great, im not hanging for these as much now as i was at comic con but thats because im more excited about the TMNT and sideshow stuff that we will be getting.

I wonder if there will be any online retailers that will resell these, or perhaps enough interest for a group order? If they were going to be released in waves, I'd just buy a complete set, but paying shipping month after month for just one figure..... ugh.

I'd certainly be interested in a group order arragement. I'm keen to collect but not that keen on shipping costs for 'one figure at a time'.......
