Sideshow Collectibles does it again! The company has been dropping pictures on their Facebook page of their newest upcoming release, Skeletor (the overlord of Evil), which hits the market here soon and is now available to preorder. The detail of this sculpting is right on point and would easily please any collector. This figure from the TV animated series Masters of the Universe is definitely an eye-opener to the consumer weighing a whole fifteen pounds and sits at approximately 21″x 12,” leaving this figure pretty big. In my opinion, the sleek and slender design really brings out the evil persona of the character, and you can tell that creators were not shy with the design on this one and really went all out.
Let’s break down the previews: we can clearly see that Skeletor is equipped with his iconic enchanted havoc staff, and also a secondary head for all you original collectors to swap out and give him that great original “old school” look. I was not able to confirm but it looks like the newer of the two heads is equipped with some kind of led light-up display in the eyes which looks phenomenal. Skeletor is shown standing on a black platform with a snake coiled around him. It really blends in well with the figure.
With great figures, comes great prices. Skeletor can be preordered today for about four hundred and fifty dollars, which in my opinion is a little steep but again you are paying for quality with this item folks, and that’s what you’ll get with Sideshow. Act now on there webpage and get a coupon for 15% off. Sideshow also offers payment plans for those collectors on a budget making it hassle-free to own this great piece of art. If you haven’t ordered your figure, I suggest you get on it as soon as possible… don’t miss out on this one!
Sideshow Collectibles even created a video to accentuate and highlight all of the highly intricate detail…

What a wonderful day for evil! Ready to face He-Man in our new statue collection inspired by the popular 80’s cartoon series Masters of the Universe, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the Overlord of Evil himself – Skeletor!
Hailing from the otherworldly dimension of Infinitia, Skeletor rules over the darkest corners of Eternia with an iron fist from his treacherous volcanic base on Snake Mountain. Wielding his enchanted Havoc Staff to command an invisible horde of henchmen and minions, Sideshow’s artists have brought the sinister villain to life with ornately sculpted battle armor and a removable cape. For an extra dose of pure unadulterated nostalgia, collectors can choose to display the devious evildoer with a swap-out yellow skull head sculpt, a tribute to his classic animated appearance. Suitably depicted with his mouth wide open, you can almost hear the barrage of insults spew forth, or that unforgettable piercing cry. Locked in a never-ending battle against the forces of good, Skeletor will not rest until he possesses the secrets of Castle Grayskull – and if he succeeds, the sworn enemy of He-Man will conquer not only Eternia but take his place as master of the universe!
