The people of Eternia would find it difficult not to bow before the awesome features of Sideshow Collectibles' new Skeletor statue. We first shared photos of this fearsome figure last summer at San Diego Comic-Con, and we now have new images and release details for this detailed depiction of He-Man's nemesis.

Priced at $449.99 and expected to ship between November 2016 and January 2017, Sideshow's new, limited edition Skeletor statue stands over 21 inches tall, weighs in at 15 pounds, and comes with two skull displays. Almost as impressive as Skeletor himself is the lava-spewing snake base upon which he stands.

Below, we have the figure's official details, photos, and video. To learn more, visit:

From Sideshow Collectibles: "What a wonderful day for evil! Ready to face He-Man in our new statue collection inspired by the popular 80’s cartoon series Masters of the Universe, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the Overlord of Evil himself – Skeletor!

Hailing from the otherworldly dimension of Infinitia, Skeletor rules over the darkest corners of Eternia with an iron fist from his treacherous volcanic base on Snake Mountain. Wielding his enchanted Havoc Staff to command an invisible horde of henchmen and minions, Sideshow’s artists have brought the sinister villain to life with ornately sculpted battle armor and a removable cape. For an extra dose of pure unadulterated nostalgia, collectors can choose to display the devious evildoer with a swap-out yellow skull head sculpt, a tribute to his classic animated appearance. Suitably depicted with his mouth wide open, you can almost hear the barrage of insults spew forth, or that unforgettable piercing cry. Locked in a never-ending battle against the forces of good, Skeletor will not rest until he possesses the secrets of Castle Grayskull – and if he succeeds, the sworn enemy of He-Man will conquer not only Eternia but take his place as master of the universe!"
