Skeletor Variants (Dragon Blaster - September, Pg. 4)

I have mixed feelings about this figure. I wanted it, and it's vintage-y so I should like it.

But I'm not feeling it.

-I wish the boots matched the armor (And the painted toenails thing is still weird).
-I wish the loincloth had some paint on it - even just a glossy black on the metal part would do wonders.

And I've also grown really attached to my TRU Skeletor's colors. I like his vibrant/deep look over the washed out Matty Skelly, so I'm starting to look at this one and go nuh-uh.

dude, the boots & belt are an easy coat of clear gloss to fix. as this price point, should you have to? no. is it a dealbreaker though? in light of the truly egregious starfruit they've pulled on us, not really.

moreover, this is YOU. you championed the damned BA he-man till i was ready to choke you to death w/ your own meathammer... where's the gusto for BA skellie? you're getting your damned axe, what does it take to keep you happy? (don't answer that, i already know)

I meant to mention the axe in my first post!! Yes, I do need a big Mission Accomplished banner and an aircraft carrier for that one... and I'm more than happy about that, much better than Purple Sword 47.

I've got to overcome my OCD in modding my figures. I'm having a blast making my newest MOTU creation, but I could never do it if I didn't have the extra Carnivus. It's like that reversed Stratos in the Hawkman 2pk. I want it, but I also want to reverse the colors on the helmet and maybe the loin cloth. I just don't want to mod the only one I have. :lol:

I think it's because I view my collection as fluid. Modded figures usually have to be snuck into the lots that I sell.

I like the armor, that's about it.

I wanted new feet, or actual boots, and I thought it would've been nice to finally get a new Skelly head.

And the paint on that head is looking bleh.

I guess the axe is pretty cool.

The original battle armor had the same feet as skelly so this is one is going to have the same feet as skelly

I like BA skelly, BUT looks like Captain Paintbrush will have to strike him before I LOVE him.
Is it me or are the Skeletor toys getting Greener?

Looks like Metallic Purple will hit the shins and skelly's Open toe shoes.

Maybe a bit of Gunmetal black on the gashes. So far the gashes look too "plastic-toy" unlike BAHM

I knew it was "going to" as per Mattel's lazy "if they did it in the 80's . . ." policy.

I just think BA Skelly looks better with the more "duck feet" look the vintage toy had.

Those MOTUC Skelly feet are based on the 8-back art, not on any of the toys.

I know, but at this point I know not to get hopes up. They are sticklers.
