    Toy Fair MOTU Origins.

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    I have to say...I haven't been this excited about toys since I was a kid.

    It's 1981 and I'm nine years old again.

    I think release Skeletor will have the updated Scareglow legs. He does in this clip for the Mattel Cybertruck.

    He doesn't have boot colored lower legs anymore right above were the boots cut off.

    Walmart exclusive isn't the best thing in the world, but I suppose if you're going to be exclusive, Walmart is a decent choice. I've had no major problems getting their WWE MOTUs despite a couple hiccups here or there.

    Featuring the "boot" look? I think I'm in the minority in liking the first-issue look--the deco reminded me of stylized greaves instead of boots.

    I agree! I just don't undertstand some comments on t0yark: "garbage" and "super fugly." I like everything except the kneecaps.

    It's hard to explain. It's the way the boots snap off. The figures are modular and come apart. With He-Man it was a clean break between where the leg detaches from the boot. With Skeletor you ended up with boot color on molded skin on the boot piece because of the sculpt . That was fixed with Scareglow. It was resculpted so the villain boot part goes up further and there is now a clean break that doesn't leave boot colored skin on the removable boot piece. Does that make sense?

    This line is definitely not for me.

    I still love the 2002 line, Iwas never a fan of the Filmation toon.
    Looking for Green Arrow accessories, Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver, and Japanese Popy Megos (Battle Fever J, Battle of the Planets, Kamen Rider, Ultraman)
