When I first saw this commercial for Spikor, the latest addition to Skeletor’s growing army of ‘Evil Warriors’ back in my youth…I immediately thought that He-Man would pick up one of those loose boulders and just bowl his menacing foe down.
I still think that is what happened after the commercial fades to black.
Apparently in 2012 when the Masters of the Universe Classics released Spikor they also include a bio that explained his real name was Kleffton and he was a blacksmith in the Eternian village of Nordling. Upon stealing a scroll from the high priests of Nordling he was fused with an enchanted suit of spikes as well as a trident before being banished to wander Eternia where Skeletor found him and put him to work making arms and armor for his armies in the battle against the Snake Men.
