The Mattel Masters of the Universe Skeletor figure was first released in 1982, as the main protagonist of the Masters of the Universe toy line and is one of the most iconic and memorable villains of all time.
Skeletor utilized the same basic muscular body sculpt as He-Man, but with some added details that were used on many of the villains.
He had a finned design on his forearms and his left-hand was sculpted wide-open with spaced clawed fingers and he had purple boots that were scaly and organic looking with three pointed toes to give him a more demonic look.
Early figures had a paint error on his head sculpt which resulted in him having an orange pink colour on his cheeks. Many of these earlier figures also only had the front of his boots painted making them look like shin-pads, but later figures had them fully painted. These earlier figures also had a purple loincloth that was later changed to black.
He also had a fun action feature with a spring in his waist so when his waist was turned it would quickly snap back into place, delivering a power-punch to his enemies, when released.
