Kofi Kingston and Skeletor

With a mix of blue and purple hues — matching the color scheme of Skeletor’s original Mattel action figure as well as his appearance in the 1980s Filmation cartoon — Kingston’s Skeletor gear also features a yellow, skeletal take on his iconic insignia that is reminiscent of the cackling antagonist’s visage.

“I didn’t know how I was going to infuse Skeletor with my logo, but one day it just popped into my head, ‘Oh my God, just put dreadlocks on it,’ Kingston said with a laugh. “The answer was right there.”

Now that Kingston’s first Masters of the Universe–infused Mattel action figure is hitting store shelves, The Dreadlocked Dynamo is hopeful that Mattel will see fit to one day render his Skeletor-esque threads in plastic as well. As for his next Eternian inspiration?

“I don’t really plan these things, they just sort of come to me,” Kingston said with a grin. “I guess we’ll find out.”
