He-Man and the Masters of the Universe by Mattel


   Since I simply reviewed the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe based mostly Eternia Minis determine on Friday let’s kick off the work week with a take a look at Skeletor from the identical sequence. I actually like Skeletor’s design and persona within the new present (which most people are calling Netflix He-Man or CGI He-Man) and whereas among the toys have been OK for him to this point, I actually do not feel like all of them have really captured the greatness of the design but. This one’s the smallest one on the market so ought to we actually count on extra from it? Let’s discover out after the break…


The Info:

Top: 2 1/8ths inches

Articulation: Swivel waist, swivel shoulders, and a balljointed head.

Equipment: Havoc workers


Non-Scalper Worth: $5-$6 {dollars}

The Positives:


* The sculpt on this determine is admittedly strong for such a small determine and the paintwork on Skelly’s armor is fairly spectacular with a mix of black, darkish purple, and metallic purple. It is pretty much as good of a sculpt (or perhaps much more so) than many of the bigger variations, too.



* I am going to get to the cranium in a second (as a result of I’ve points with it) however I do just like the work on the hood. the cranium is a separate, balljointed piece set below the hood. The hood seems nice, although, notably with the ragged edge.



* Skeletor’s left hand is all evil wanting and skeletal, exhibiting off the way it has been affected by Havoc magic. I really like this element on the character design for the present and I am glad the entire toys to this point have actually highlighted this factor.

 * These little guys nonetheless have 4 factors of articulation which can not
appear to be rather a lot besides you gotta think about they’re solely a bit over 2
inches tall. That is not unhealthy for this scale as so many minifigures are
simply static! They’re very sturdy little figures and would in all probability match
in nicely with traces like Imaginext and the Hasbro Heroes figures, so if
you’ve got a bit one who’s into MOTU these might be some respectable starter
toys. They’re enjoyable to play with and have a whole lot of shelf presence!



* The Havoc Workers seems spectacular from the entrance with some good element on each the cranium and the shaft.

The Negatives:

* On each determine of this new Skeletor to this point Mattel has uncared for to do something aside from paint the eyes. With a brilliant, neon cranium which means the element within the face and particularly across the mouth simply will get washed out. A minor wash or one thing is simply necessary for the cranium of this model of Skeletor.


* Why does Mattel preserve giving us Havoc staffs which might be hole within the
again with stuff based mostly on the Netflix He-Man and the Masters of the
Universe present? If the upcoming Masterverse Skeletor from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe has a hole Havoc Workers I will lash out irrationally. 

  Skeletor turned out OK. Not unbelievable, however not horrible. I might give him a strong Good. If Mattel may actually work on enhancing the paint functions on the entire Skeletors based mostly on this design, particularly by including just a bit paint to his mouth to deliver out the element, issues can be rather a lot higher. Nonetheless, he does have a fairly cool outfit with a pleasant quantity of element for such a small determine. He is enjoyable sufficient, I suppose, however I am going to admit I benefit from the inexperienced model of this man a bit extra. He is only a cooler minifigure than this model.
