Yep. This is exactly what MOTU fans for clamoring for.

Seriously, this collectible is receiving more hate on the internet than Donald Sterling at the moment.

A few weeks ago, Matty Collector announced that they'd have a "special item" for their MOTU subscribers. Fans, of course, thought they were going to get their favorite figure, personalized just for them-- their dream figure/playset/accessory. I don't know why collectors-- MOTU fans especially-- think [so unrealistically] this way, but they do.

When the item was revealed, they were treated to these photos.

This is utter silliness. An item better served as an SDCC exclusive-- where these kinds of items have a good sell-thru-- than as a regular item.

But, who knows? Maybe people will buy this. Yeah.... maybe.

Here's the nonsense that Mattel has to say about the "doll". (A "royal potty"?? Seriously??)

"The Evil Lord of Destruction goes back in time… and turns into an itty bitty blue baby! This tale of a tyrannical tot, an unexpected detour, and buffalo wings comes from the twisted minds at one of our favorite stop-motion TV shows, and was the inspiration for this little guy. A must-have for true MOTUC fans, Baby Skeletor measures 12” tall (a total of 15” when sitting on his evil royal potty, including the potty) with articulation at the legs, shoulders and neck, and a face only a mother could… nope, sorry… even she thinks he’s hideous. The childish commander and his commode arrive in a unique closed-box throne package, and comes with a removable “Born to Rule” baby t-shirt and his Havoc Staff rattle. Baby Skeletor may seem harmless, but remember… 80% of his body weight is in his horrible head!"

He can be yours on an unspecified date for only $35-- plus Matty Collector's  ridiculously overpriced shipping and tax.
