  • Laser Power He-Man & Laser-Light Skeletor Thread

    Over at Mattycollector.com, Catra's Wrath has confirmed that Laser Power He-Man and Laser-Light Skeletor will be part of the 2015 subscription.

    Both the figures you mention are vintage MOTU characters, and the promise from Toy Guru is to complete the vintage MOTU and POP toyline characters by the end of 2015.

      $60 item is Rotar and Twistoid....the $52 item is either flying fists he-man/terror claws skeletor or lazer light he-man/skeletor......then one of them will be the SDCC item

    While they are coming in 2015, according to Toyguru's promise. That does not mean they are in the sub. They could be SDCC items.

          If this is an inside info, Rotar and Twistoid better come with legs and accesories for that price tag.

          I look forward to getting these two figures. I just hope that they give Laser He-Man armor that that is articulated. His arm armor should be similar to MOTUC Man-at-Arms, and not a solid piece.

                I disagree. But I do Understand why you don't care for them. You probably feel OPPOSITE to the following:

                A. They look cool.
                B. Almost nobody has had them as kids so they feel "new-ish". They ARE vintage in the way that He-Ro & Eldor kind of are.
                C. They bridge MOTU and NA nicely. They fit in the style of the 1987 film... (cloth cape & cowl 4 Skels and Dolph Head on HM)
                D. They are RARE and expensive. Almost nobody has them as ADULTS.
                E. THEY LIGHT UP. Translucent plastic is cool! Energy weapons are cooler!

                Granted, that isn['t going to appeal to EVERYBODY, it's Just some of the reasons I and others MIGHT like them.

              You are not the only one. I am lukewarm on them, I am worried that Mattel Design will "Intergalactic Skeletor" them.

              This is one of them few figures I hope have the original gimmick. If they don't light up - fail.

                Something about LL Skeletor is appealing to me. Maybe it's the weird face. LP He-Man is a bit dull, but not bad

                These are the only He-Man/Skeletor variants I really want. They're so tough to get vintage ones complete and in good shape. For years, years, I tried to get a LL He-Man with the vintage variant head. I would love it if the MOTUC versions lit up too. I get that other people don't want them or like them, but getting new versions of mega-rare things like these guys He-Ro or Tytus, and new characters, is what brought me to MOTUC in the first place.

                  I'm not familiar with these two variants but I don't see much difference between na skelly and LL skelly. Could they make na disks of doom skelly and still make LL out of that?

                    Sculptural, LL and NA are different, however they are extremely similar. Though I've never owned one. I've held them at the same time in each hand and REALLY looked them over. I would bet, they are based on the same, or similar drawings from the same or similar artists. I would Guess "Galatic Protector" skeletor arms and legs will be used on LL skeletor in classics, and he'll get a new "skin shirt" which kills a bit of my enthusiasm for them and is probably the reason they where bot shown at SDCC... (that's just a "theory" BTW)

                  As with most variants, not necessary for me compared to getting unique individual figures to make this collection bigger!

                      I completely agree! I've been trying to figure out a story rational for this though. I'm Still stumped. The Strongest man in the universe wouldn't need strengths enchaining exoskeleton, which is what that looks like to me...but that's the only thing I can think of? ...Unless he lost his unlimited strength, or this Laser Power Sword was more heavy then the WHOLE universe? *Shrugs IDK.

                      I'm reminded of OLD discussions and Tales of The Jedi and the original Lightsabers

                        Shock absorption/energy containment for the backwash you get when you use the Power as the Sword?

                        (Skeletor, meanwhile, is using the bionics to support his system, thanks to the necrotic and disintegrating side effects of unlocking and channeling the full Anti-Power of the Nameless One ...)

                          Perfect rationalization! And I like that "Anti-Power of the Nameless One". The corrupted power of the Starseed of Anti-Eternia perhaps?

                        I'm pretty sure the real reason was so that they could hide the wire from the backpack to the sword on the original figure... lol... I doubt I would display him with it, unless they make it bend at the elbow. Snake Armor He-Man has one arm covered by armor, so it isn't a big stretch for the character now, I guess.

                          Bend at the elbow like Man-At-Arms? Yeah. I agree. Good point about it just being armor like Snake Armor He-Man. Sometimes the simplest solution is often the best. I just figured a more indepth "in universe explanation" to rationalize why wires are connected to it, and why the wires need to be covered protected at all. Seams like a SERIOUS design flaw for a super technologically advanced race to require batteries and wires for light up swords LOL. :P

                        I love all of the 80s variants of He-Man and Skeletor, as I feel more thought and care went into those designs than they did with 200x. I'm looking forward to getting the laser figures, as well as Flying Fists He-Man and Terror Claws Skeletor.

                          Toyguru's message from the recent WTFWTK:

                          1. Poweron: Are Laser Power He-Man's and Laser Light Skeletor's light up features possible?

                          While we do love exploring these type of features, historically, when we have "gone the extra mile" on figures, like ensuring the gears rotate on Roboto or Snout Spouts trunk bends, we tend to wind up creating more issues vs. delivering. So it may come down to how sure we are we can add a "feature" like this without effecting the QC in any way. Not always easy!

                          Gone the extra mile????? Are you kidding me? Snout Spout needed a trunk - and you chose FOAM - cheap FOAM. Roboto just used cheap plastic.

                          How is it that these features were not only feasible 25 years ago - but actually worked and STILL work today.

                          Really pathetic and a pisspoor excuse.

                              I half-expected to see the figures WITHOUT Light up Features, but this answer from Mattel reeks of laziness and incompetence.
                              Funny how King Hiss, who was the first figure with bendy stuff is holding out pretty well...
                              Laser figures better not be the $60 item if they won't have light up features...

                                i'm glad he finally admitted that they are too incompetent to do what they used to be able to do. my laser light skeletor still lights up & my saurod still makes sparks. i just want a poseable figure that isn't ruined by them trying to bite off more than they can chew.
