Mattel Announces #‎MOTU‬ ‪#‎BabySkeletor‬ Doll
May 28, 2014

Springing forth from a Robot Chicken sketch (only eluded to and not mentioned by name, unlike the direct tie-in of Mo-Lar) Mattel announces one of the strangest editions to the Masters of the Universe toy line… and that’s saying something coming from an action figure line with names like Fisto and Goat-man!   Coming this June – Baby Skeletor:

The stork just made a delivery, and we couldn’t wait to share the news! Introducing our newest little addition… Baby Skeletor®! This bouncing bundle of terror was inspired by a video from the twisted minds at one of our favorite stop-motion TV shows, and we’ve got him for our 6/16 sale!

Baby SkeletorShhh… don’t wake him up! No, really, you do not want to wake this little guy. He may look innocent but don’t be fooled by his chubby little baby body… he’s a bad (blue) seed, through and through.

This treacherous toddler measures 12” tall and arrives ready for naptime and other nefarious activities with his evil royal potty, a removable “Born to Rule” t-shirt, and a Havoc Staff rattle.

Make sure you’re here at 8:00 a.m. PT on 6/12 when Baby Skeletor® will be available to subscribers during Early Access. Any remaining figures will be available to everyone in All Access on 6/16 at 9:00 a.m. PT

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
