Pop Culture Shock Collectibles Presents SKELETOR 1:4th Scale Statue
December 1, 2014

Product Pre-order Launches Dec. 8th


LOS ANGELES, December 1st 2014 (BUSINESS WIRE)—   I’ll get you HE MAN!

Pop Culture Shock keep rolling out their masterful MOTU collectibles with their newest edition- SKELETOR!

“No top ten list of great 80s villains is complete without the yellow-skulled-one.” said Jerry Macaluso, President of Pop Culture Shock, “The fans have been asking for him for a long time, so l’m happy we can finally deliver!”

Based on his classic Filmation appearance, He Man’s arch nemesis is perched menacingly above a craggy rock and lava base. The would-be dictator stands ready to enslave the good people of Eternia and cast his evil will upon the world.

PCS have outdone themselves with this offering’s exclusive edition (available only at the PCS website). In addition to two different swap-out jaws, Skeletor also come with an interchangeable staff, axe, and sword. This may very well be the most customizable exclusive yet! And as a bonus- both the regular and exclusive versions are available with a pre-order discount of up to 12% off the retail price.

Let’s just be honest here, that He Man statue has been acting pretty smug and unchallenged in your DETOLF. It’s time we introduced a little evil into your display case!

Daniel Pickett
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 www.ActionFigureInsider.com. 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 MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, 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.
