Today we’re doing a very late pic review of the Masters of the Universe Classics Keldor. Yes, it took me a while to get to him, and everyone else has already posted their Keldor reviews, but no matter. Here we go!
I won’t be going into great detail about him as he is pretty much a Skeletor body with a new head and cape, if you have any of the Skellys that have been released, you know what to expect as far as articulation and sculpt goes. I do have to say, for a figure pretty much made out of reused parts, I still had some fun with him.
His head sculpt is really well done – it’s full of character. He looks smug and confident. I can’t imagine he’d have the Skeletor voice he had in the cartoon though. Maybe that voice was from Demo Man!
I also had fun with the idea that he wielded double swords. I just wished they were full swords rather than half swords, or maybe that the part where the swords joined together didn’t look so flat and unfinished!
The cape is a welcome addition as you can use it with Skeletor. Keldor still looks good without it!
I like that they used a different shade of blue from the Skeletor figure. It’s a more saturated blue, like he had more life as Keldor.
This is a great way to reuse Skeletor’s body. It’s a good look at what he looked like before, making it a good figure to have in the collection. I’ve heard some people say they wished an alternate, melting face head sculpt had been included, similar to the original one, and I agree with this. It would’ve been interesting to see how the Horsemen would execute the sculpt. Also now that this figure had been made, I’m curious to see how Demo Man looks like, as Skeletor is a merger of the two.
Well that’s it! Thanks for looking and I hope you all enjoyed the pics!

great pics, Sandy! love how you used the different bases to make the rubble for them to battle on, it’s a great idea!
Keldor better look out on that last pic, man. I think we may have a new reason for his transformation to skelly – Evil-Lynn blew his face off in a fit of jealous rage. Great pics as always. The action shots are second to none and I love the idea of the MAA armor on Randor for a more pre-king Captain Randor look.
Thanks Buzzy!! I usually have to make sure there are no obvious connections to other toy lines on the bases that I throw around in my reviews, like a Sentinel head or a poster of Spidey on a wall. But of course all you collectors for the most part know where these bases are from!!
Matt, that last pic was originally just Keldor sweet-talking Evil-Lyn, but I thought he just looks like a player I threw in the Goddess in there! On the pre-king Randor look, I kinda rewatched the first episode of the Mike Young MOTU cartoon and in it Randor was wearing his pre-king outfit with some details like Man-at-Arms outfit. Of course, his colors are different and I believe he didn’t have that crown, but I guess it’s close enough!
Thanks for the comments guys!
Awesome pics – as always!
Love to know where the red throne with the lion head came from.
Thanks He-Dan! That accessory is actually a backdrop for a Mc Farlane Toys Conan throne which you can see here: http://www.spawn.com/toys/product.aspx?product=2590. I originally hadn’t planned on opening that figure, but I did because I wanted to use it for King Randor!!
The backdrop from the McF King Conan throne may also work nicely behind Chief Carnivus too.
Nice review and pics as always Sandman.
