Hi,

I'm sure we'll be getting more reissues and variants of the core characters in MOTUC along the way, and that got me thinking if anyone else would be interest in Mattel releasing a Skeletor that better matched the model sheet of the original cartoon?

If so, they would need to make a new head with the hood joining the neck more, new forearms without the fins, new shins and boot feet. And his ram staff would need the rams head to be grey.

I think if they did this in a two pack with a flocked Panthor it would be a really great variant.

What do you reckon?

They've pretty much said that variants like that wouldn't be coming.

Have you seen Kevin Kosse's custom heads?...



EDIT: Oops... thought Dan had the Filmation Skeletor head in that review...

You can see pics in this thread... http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/sho ... evin+Kosse

(I'll leave video posted because PD does have some great shots in there)

Whoa thanks Jim. Those are just what I'm looking for.

I'm not on facebook so can't contact Kevin Kosse that way, but I'd really like to get in touch with him and see if I can buy some of those heads. Don't suppose you have a contact email for him you can pm me?

I'd really love a Clawful, but don't want anything else and shipping for just one head is too much :lol:

I just sent him a friend request on FB and wanted to make you aware he is in Germany. Shouldn't be a deal breaker, he does beautiful stuff.
