Official description via Mattel:
This new toy, developed exclusively for Mattel Creations, is a global canvas for collaboration across all types of cultural backgrounds. The menacing result of this latest mash-up is this giant Shogun Masters™ Skeletor® action figure, which pulls out all the stops and draws from giant Japanese robot toy designs, the Jumbo Machinder.
Fans of Japanese anime, manga and Masters of the Universe will want to call upon the power of Grayskull to add this fearsome figure to their collection. Shogun Masters™ Skeletor® stands nearly 2 feet tall and is instantly recognizable. It’s battle ready with missile-powered weapons that include one of his massive fists and his iconic Havoc Staff. This robot warrior carries 8 missiles that can be used as ammunition or snapped onto his boots and body armor.
About the designer:
Ruben Martinez was introduced to Shogun Warriors when he was a kid. Ruben’s love of these mechs led him to eventually work for Mattel where he is now Senior Manager on Masters of the Universe and sits at a desk adorned with giant mech toys. Because Mattel was one of the first to introduce U.S. children to Japanese toys with Shogun figures and also the pioneers who created Masters of the Universe, a Shogun Skeletor is the perfect pairing of two iconic lines.
