    Great review, Pixel Dan should take some notes.

    The freakin armor is glued? Oh boy, I just don't understand what is going on anymore. That is just insult to injury.

    I have to say, regardless of the reversed shoulders, regardless of Scott's lies/design choice, regardless of the gummy hands - this figure could have been a monument to NA and this line. EXCEPT for that bloated armor - which should have just been his actual torso.

    I mean, they already went balls deep with all the sculpted detail and new parts, just go all the way and do it right.

      The armor is glued!?!?

      What a bunch of losers...

      Those guys at Mattel are the absolute worst, I'm actually debating if I should sell my remaining MOTUC figures... I just keep getting more and more turned off every time I witness such hugely displays of dumbness...

      ---edit---

      I just watched a bit of Pixel-dan's review and there was no mentioning of the armor being glued. He didn't remove it completely though... so I find it a bit strange.

      If the armor is indeed fixed to the figure it's just one more failure on probably the overall most flawed figure since Frosta.

        Flaws or no flaws, I will be getting one or two extra of this guy. He's great custom fodder.

          I will definitely be customizing my figure when I get him. Double Trouble too.

        Glued or not, he looks fat from every angle.

        Such a waste....

          I think I remember TG actually announced a while ago that it would be glued. By glueing it down they wanted to make sure he wouldn't look fat

            I'd like to glue Toyguru down so that he doesn't look stupid. But alas, that's not gonna work.

            glue traps are the best ways to catch a rat.

          Too late for that. I just cannot "unsee" Skeletor's fat armor. What a terrible decision that was!

            I took the armor off my NA Skeletor. I had to soak him in hot water, and then gently pull on the tabs to get the glue to peal off. There was no glue on the body - just the tabs were glued. I think he looks much better without the armor. I will be customizing the armor that came with him soon. They really should have just given him a Zodac-style armor. The skin armor was a very bad idea.

              I will be customizing him this week so that he can wear the armor. Just need to buy some paint to fix the parts I cut.

              Great. Thanks for sharing that tip. I've been considering trying this, going for a more cartoon model, not cyborg look for him, this makes me want to try. Are you going to Cut the "armor" off from the skin? That's what I was thinking, perhaps gluing it to a Zodac armor?

            For those who already have him in hand (I've got quarterly shipping so I've got to wait until the end of the month), I was curious to know for potential customizing purposes, do the ears on the helmeted Unfortunate One head match the blue of NA Skeletor's skin?

              OOOH. Good question. IDK. Mine are all boxed and put away at the moment. I'm gonna try this though when I have time!

            I've also heard about reverse shoulders on this guy as well. He-Bro provided the repair procedure for it.
