New Masters of the Universe Skeletor Hikari Sofubi Vinyl Figure Colorways by Funko

“Metallic” Skeletor Masters of the Universe Hikari Sofubi Vinyl Figure by Funko

While The Blot really digs Funko’s Skeletor Hikari vinyl figure, I have to wonder what the market is for all these colorways. It’s not like Masters of the Universe toys and comics are flying off the shelves. MOTU has a pretty mature fan base and for a variety of reasons Mattel’s toy line is coming to an end this year. That being said, I really like these new Skeletor Hikari editions, which includes the monotone “Grey Skull” (LE 1,000), the classic “Metallic” (LE 2,000) and The Blot’s personal favorite “Havoc” (LE 2,000), which features a silver glitter face and a sick white fade.

Hikari, meaning “light”, is a highly collectible line of clear/translucent figures cast in soft Japanese vinyl. Each Skeletor Hikari vinyl figure stands 5” tall, comes with a hand numbered card to prove authenticity and rarity, and is packaged in a full color window box perfect for display. While these figures are currently sold out for pre-sale, keep your eyes peeled to Entertainment Earth to see if more become available for $49.99 each here.
