About This Statue
“By the powers of darkness, evil and fear!”
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 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. 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!

A Masterpiece of Delicious Evil — Reviewing the Exclusive Edition
I received this as a gift from my cousin who used to play MOTU w/me in the 80s (he played He-Man & wanted me to be Evil-Lyn but I was always Skeletor & I always kicked his ***!) This is EXACTLY how I pictured the Lord of Destruction-sheer EVIL perfection! Gorgeous detail-loving both faces!

Skeletor Looks Awesome.
I had been looking at this for a while and when I ordered it I was not disappointed. The Skeletor is brilliant well designed, painted and for a first piece I was delighted. Postage was very fast and the payment plan is very helpful. I can't wait to order again.

Powerful and creepy!
I hesitated on getting him, but decided to once the low stock remaining notice went up. :) I'm so glad I did. I love that this version is darker and creepier than the cartoon version. I can't wait to get Evil-Lyn to put up next to him.

Not even a huge masters of the universe fan (despite growing up with it)... but wow what a piece. Simply amazing on every level. If youre debating, buy it.
Perfect!! — Reviewing the Exclusive Edition
This is such an awesome rendition of Skeletor. I have been a Masters fan for 30 plus years and this Statue brought back memories. The detail is fantastic, can't say enough. If you love Skeletor you want be disappointed. Awesome!!

Skeletor is AWESOME
The sculpt and paint are amazing. Level of detail is uncanny. Looks amazing and takes me back to watching MOTU in my Dukes of Hazzard PJs so many years ago... Thanks again Sideshow!!
Unboxed, assembled, and on display in my home this statue is nothing short of amazing. Shear size, sculpt, paint, and every intricate detail of the armor, sword, staff, etc is something to be admired. Much thanks to the whole team at SideShow for a wicked and worthy interpretation of Skeletor!

Skeletor is the first statue i purchased from Sideshow. At first i was not sure if he would be worth the price, but he is worth every cent. Amazing details, great painting...a must-have for every MOTU-Fan. He-Man will be next for sure! I hope there will be a Hordak statue in the near future.
— White Wolf

Brilliant — Reviewing the Exclusive Edition
Looks fantastic and excellent quality.
MOTU, Thundercats, Transformers, Silverhawks, & G.I. Joe! We had the best childhood coming up! Our cartoons were the greatest and now I have one of the best villains along w/my SS He-man in my collection! He's not as big as the PF but his detail , stance, and paint job is exquisite. Great Job SS!
— Dr. Doom
Just received my exclusive Skeletor....The details are mind blowing..easily one of Sideshows best ...With She-ra coming next...HORDAK would be jaw dropping if Sideshow decides to do it..well done guys!!!!!!!

MASTER PIECE of THE UNIVERSE!!!
I was a kid when MOTU came out. Opening the statue took me back to opening my first He-Man action figure decades ago. Detail is amazing. Slightly different from the original action figure but tastefully done and true to MOTU roots. SKELETOR and EVIL LYN ordered & on the way!

My gosh, what a true piece of art
I grew up watching and playing with masters of the universe figures. I have to say this statue is amazing. Paint and sculpt are just to perfect. Just wish this was 1/4 scale but I'm happy with it. Wait list for exclusive was converted so don't wait too long to order this.

My only issue with this statue is that the magnets for the hands are not as strong or sturdy as they should be. At this price point, that shouldn't be an issue, but it is on this one. However, it's easily one of my top 5 favorites that I own. The detail is amazing, and the head sculpts are spot on.
— Jonathan Walker
Absolutely the most beautiful piece I own, and a brilliantly detailed and sculpted rendition of the iconic Lord of Snake Mountain! Safely stored back in his box for now, but I look forward to being able to display him properly. My favorite part is the interchangeable heads!

A TRUE RENDITION OF CLASSIC SKELETOR
I just got mine delivered today, #137/4000 and i absolutely love it. It's has great detail and color. It's very impressive and reminds me of Frank Langella's portrayal of Skeletor in the '87 MOTU movie . I couldn't be anymore happier.
— Dave Hart
Awesome Statue BUT......
Sideshows take on this iconic villain is Phenomenal and the attention to detail is spot on. Now my only problem with this piece if im comparing to He-Man from the same line is the hands are very loose fitting whereas He-man was a snug fit but still an overall awesome MUST-HAVE!
