Shogun Masters™ Skeletor®

In 2021 Mattel Creations decided to get into the jumbo machinder market with an homage Shogun Masters™ Skeletor® figure from the very popular Masters of the Universe toyline. There's also some talk of a He-Man figure as a followup but as of 2021.07.06 one hasn't been announced.

From the Mattel Creations site:

Introducing the Shogun Masters™ Skeletor® figure! Yep, that’s right. We resurrected the nearly two-foot-tall chassis from our favorite giant fighting mechs and combined it with the most evil-yet-beloved villain in all of Eternia®. Let’s see what that goody goody man bag of muscles, He-man®, has to say about it.

  • The super-sized figure stands nearly 2 feet / 61 cm tall and is instantly recognizable!
  • Skeletor® figure is ready battle with missile-powered weapons that include one of his massive fists and his iconic Havoc Staff!
  • The robot warrior carries 8 missiles that can be used as ammunition or snapped onto his boots and body armor.
  • With large-scale design, feet that role and missile-powered action, Shogun Master Skeletor® makes a great gift for fans and collectors of Masters of the Universe® and Japanese anime and manga.

Item available to ship June 1, 2021 - September 1, 2021



The initial run of Shogun Masters Skeletor sold out pretty quickly so Mattel Creations went into a second run - I'm unclear of the numbers of either nor have I examined the first run vs the second to note any differences (I do own both). Shortly after the second run was made available there were to additional limited-edition releases: the Shogun Masters Golden Havoc and Ultra-Rare Dark Malice Skeletor - I purchased the latter as it was announced to be limited to 250 units - it also sold out very quickly upon release.

WE HAVE AWAKENED SOMETHING DELICIOUSLY DARK

Straight from the malicious minds of Mattel’s Design Team comes the next nightmare for He-Man and his band of do-gooders to duke it out with — in two distinct color schemes! The limited-edition Shogun Masters Golden Havoc and Ultra-Rare Dark Malice Skeletor Mechs are here.

 

SKELETOR HAS AN EVEN DARKER SIDE NOW

The wickedly devious MOTU design team has imagined the Overlord of Evil in the darkest form he has ever taken. With its ultra-rare, all-black design, Dark Malice is a deliciously dark amalgamation of the original Master of Evil and a classic two-foot-tall Shogun Mech that will strike fear into the hearts He-Man and his band of goody-goody do-gooders. Limited to 250 units

A dark shadow looms from Snake Mountain...

This Ultra-Rare Dark Malice Skeletor Mech has an extremely limited quantity of only 250. And if that wasn’t enough, it features wheeled feet that maneuver with ease, rocket powered fists that pack a serious punch, and Skeletor’s signature Havoc Staff that fires spring-loaded missiles from the mouth of its iconic ram skull.

 

SOLD OUT

 

SKELETOR FINALLY HAS THE POWER… OF A GOLDEN SHOGUN MASTER!

Our delightfully dastardly designers couldn’t wait to give Skeletor something powerful enough to finally take He-Man down and control the Power of Grayskull— his own Golden Shogun Master Mech! This limited-edition, black-and-gold behemoth stands two feet tall and shows off the majesty of Skeletor’s evil desires.

Delusions of Grandeur—even grander!

This limited-edition Shogun Masters Golden Havoc Skeletor Mech features wheeled feet that maneuver with ease, rocket-powered fists that pack a serious punch, and Skeletor’s signature Havoc Staff that fires spring-loaded missiles from the mouth of its iconic ram skull.
