According to the AFA population data, AFA 85+ is the highest grade assigned to any Skeletor across all 8-Back and 12-Back variants. 

*There are two 85+ examples including this lot (pop 2), both received a “Y” designation, both are 12-Back “The Original”.



Offered here is a highly desirable Skeletor “The Original” 12-Back action figure from 1983. AFA 85+ is the highest grade assigned to any Skeletor action figure across all cardbacks and variants. This example is virtually flawless front and back. The card is immaculate. The bubble presents clearly from the front maximizing display value, but it is correctly assigned a Y designation. There is a stronger tint on the left side and top side of the bubble than on the right and bottom side of the bubble. The bubble retains perfect form free from dents, dings, and cracks. Skeletor action figure stands in perfect position with staff placed corrent in front of him. We expect this lot to attract attention from collectors and investors alike. It’s not often one can lay claim to having the highest graded example of a hobby icon. Made in Taiwan, G7.  Encapsulated by AFA (85+y, 85-85-85), #11052246
