This was my secret Santa trade that is now in the hands of NeCrollector. To be honest, as much of a child of the 80's as I wish I were, I don't know a super vast amount about Skeletor. So this was honestly a difficult custom to brainstorm on as I settled on tackling a, "More gothic evil skeletor." Of course I needed to still shine through with blue skin and a skull for a head, but what could make him just look... Menacing. I started with bandaging him up and making him look beaten and bloodied from battle, with the addition of loose metal armor here and there, but more to channel a barbarian look. The head was totally sanded down and resculpted to its now pointy state. Lots of little washes to make it look nice and moldy. The most drastic change I feel was choosing to go hoodless... I had not a clue if this would go over well.

I'm very happy to see Necro liked it though, and so I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday!

I absolutely LOVE your twisted, wicked, gothic take on Skeletor! He's more than I what could have possible imagined...and I proudly display this priceless work-of-art with my other MOTUC figures.

As a hardcore fan of all things in their original style, I'm usually very reluctant to like things changed, this new take on ol' "bonehead" is very cool and nicely done.
