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.
