SUMMARY: The Aurimat Battle Armor Skeletor was released in the second year of the Los Amos del Universo production (1985). The first year it was released marked France, callus in the right hand for better handling of weapons, and all accessories marked HONG KONG. The chest emblem is red with an emerald green outline.
The next year of production (1986) Aurimat used Taiwan molds. There were 3 different chest bat color combinations, all with figures marked TAIWAN, with TAIWAN marked accessories. While this variant shares the (American release) Battle Armor Taiwan weapons mold, its weapons are easily distinguished from standard American release weapons in color and feel. The Aurimat weapons are darker, more rigid, and are a close match to standard HONG KONG marked weapons (as far as color and flexibility).
DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS: 1. Pointy (HK Style) yellow face paint application 2. Dark torso tones 3. Greenish limb colors 4. Dark gray/purple accessories
