Oooohhhh-Kay…Mattel Introduces a Skeletor Baby Doll


As if the evil lord of destruction weren’t emasculated enough by the Filmation cartoon, Mattel has introduced the skull-faced slavemaster as an imbecilic infant, seemingly taking a shit into Panthor’s saddle, and available to Masters of the Universe toy subscribers next month for $35.

This would appear to be yet another curious misjudgment of their market. Apparently based on a Robot Chicken sketch, it’s an exclusive that seems likely to meet the same fate as the previous such item, Mo-Larr, who was once a Comic-Con exclusive and ended up being sold off ultra-cheap in special “mystery box” packages.

As a collector, I don’t want it, but am fine if others do. Just interested to know if anybody actually does.
