>>10053787Make the dragon walker hand powered instead of battery powered. Give it that cool ratchet sound like roton.
>>10053787Give the Battlebones a spring mechanism in the skull jaw, so it holds shut while weapons are in there so they won't fall out and for a "snapping jaws biting" action if you choose not to use it for storage.
Attack Track needs a face.Every other vehicle has an animal or monster face, and it makes them all seem "alive", like they've got character.Attack Track doesn't and it's bland because of it.Even Wind Raider has the dragon head on its front
will anyone else be grabbing a DnD Diana figure as a vintage-styled Andra? She has the studded belt and the furry boots and everything. Dare I say it looks like a 3p toy.
>>10053910Is she Origins scale? I'll bite if she is
I want a figure of that snake guy Grizzlor fucking murdered in his comic
>>10053915target lists it as 6-inch scale, and they're like 14 in the show so I'm gambling that the figure will match the female buck in height
>>10053910That face has 0 character
>>10053923She'll fit right in with Origins then
>>10053910she's got the motu armbands too, and the cartoon editor debuted in '83
>>10053931It's okay when Origins does it
>>10053953Origins can do no wrong, it's the crown jewel of the Mattel toy empire
>>10053931One is based on a toy and the other on a cartoon. Origins wins baby.
>>10053910They're making toys of DND cartoon characters? Now that's a blast from the past. Hope they'll do Presto and Sheila. Oh and Eric, too, I guess.
>>10054029Just one wave so far. Diana has the strongest design in my opinion, so I wouldn't call it a huge loss if we don't see any more.Battleground Andra I'll call her.
>>10053978And I love it! Rooted hair would've been nice but y'know, budget.
>>10053978Wow I love tubetop Teela
>>10053910Vintage Andra's a white woman
>>10053910Why bother with making the package like it's a blister and a card when it's really a closed box?
>>10053910>Captain HEEEEEEE-MAaAaAaAaAaAan!!!>And son! Dad! Dad!
>>10054244Small company focused on the environment, please understand. Atleast it's not open like some transformers out right now.
>>10054102I honestly prefer if they do more POP that they'll have plastic hair. It makes them feel less dolllike, consitent and they if they wont use the same hair mold for everyone, more characteristic. Keep real hair for Grizzlor.
>>10054102NTA but you can't tell me that's a good figure. It's yellow for gold plastic, missing comb, ugly face, and shit articulation make it a far cry from a good toy. If this weren't named She-Ra you'd all call it shit.
>>10054289And the soft goods are absolute dogshit Look at vintage She-Ra, and the soft goods actually look really nice. Origins looks like the took left over scraps of felt and wrapped it around her.Rooted hair wouldn't even come close to fixing Origins She-Ra problems.
>>10053910Cool it's Masterverse Filmation style Andra>>10054254Kid He-Man or Dare!
>>10054261I was being silly about the rooted hair, humidity would poof that shit up like jiffy pop. Like the idea of unique hair. >>10054289It's not perfect, but I'm one of few that really wants more ladies in eternia and on my shelves. She was a total bitch to find at the time so I guess someone other than me enjoys it. >>10054299Yeah, it's short imo, can't really get the cloth to do what I want it too.She is a dud but not an abject failure or anything. Masterverse is my best option for a good she ra.
>>10053931And people with no taste are going to enjoy it.
Damn, when did you guys stop bashing clamp and stratos? Seeing a lot of heat on poor ol teela today.
>>10054369I'll have bought 3 Teelas once the Zoar pack arrives, and 3 Evil-Lyns now in my efforts to get a yellow one with decent knees. I can shit on the mold, and fuck you I love clamp champ.
>>10054369>Hating on the Champion of Clampions
I now have a Grizzlor and a Dark Grizzlor.I might sell the Powercon Horde set loose with the pretty rotating box.
>>10054418let them fight for dominance. Winner stays, loser hits the road for ebay.
>>10054393>>10054398I don't hate any one, I've got them all. It just seems like teela is getting some bad press in this thread, that's all.>Is he a champion with out his clamp on? Does the clamp make the man or does the man make himself a champion?
>>10054524Where? To PW or VR?
Origins Stinkor, yay or nay?I skipped him last year because I was going to hold out for a 2.0 that would hopefully have a gas mask and stuff, but lately I've been reconsidering since he's the only currently available Evil Warrior I don't at least 1 version of. Is he underwhelming enough that I should stick to my original stance, or is he better in person that I should change my mind?
>>10054556He stinks, it's fun! He's pretty simple really so I'd say just wait till you find it for below MSRP if you aren't sure. I really doubt there will be another one any time soon. The masterverse figure is cool if you just want a figure of him.
>>10054556Considering he's a figure where all his parts are used elsewhere, and he has no other major variants, this is probably the only one we'll get
>>10054556If you got a spare snout spout o2 tank you can clip it to the back of his armor.
>>10054594This doesn't count as a "major variant"? It's major enough thst both Classics and Masterverse included the gas mask and tanks as alternate heads
>>10054441>Does the clamp make the man or does the man make himself a champion?In the newspaper comic, it's the latter. He's a self-made badass who claims "No one ever called me anything but Champ." So he's Champ who's using a clamp.It's not clear whether his parents literally named him Champ or he moved to Eternos to reinvent himself and has a normal name back home, like Raenius or Marvin.
>>10054614Masterverse didn't have an extra head but the mask comes off showing a more vintage style face. Really nice way to handle it.
>>10054614i'd kill for an origins 200X stinkor
>>10054614It's a more major variant in the actual cartoon, where they didn't give him the exact same armor and loincloth colors as 85.
>>10054623It did come with 2 heads. The grumpy looking one and the one with the mask that could be removed, making it look like he had an open mouth (like blowing his gas), even if it was still a peg hole if you looked too closely.
>>10054621This is why I love you guys. I'm going with he reinvented himself after failing to save his parents from the champ clamper!
>>10054623Yes it did Thr mask IS removable, but it's still attached to an alt head
>>10054635My bad. I guess I'm mis remembering.
I really don't expect another Stinkor in origins after he got a masterverse figure and after naked Stratos has shelfwarmed.
>>10053978the way mattel is handling she-ra and the horde makes me think they have plans to establish their own iteration as part of MOTU either soon or sometime down the road. it already seems that way to me considering how all the female origins figures have had sculpted hair. the obvious next step would be to embrace her red sonja concept iteration whole hog, just to distance their iteration as much from dreamworks/amazon as possible. I wouldnt mind getting the "hobo zone" horde out of this either. It'd be interesting to see those five as proper monsters instead of ayylmaos
Grizzlor's cool. Shame they axed the left open palm hand, but I'm glad he's here and still coming through MTO.Just need a Hordak, and maybe one more Horde Trooper now.
>>10054654if only, anon.
"Don't doot it!""Foolish mortal! Scareglow doots as he pleases"
>>10054737Where you get that trumpet?
>>10054338Yeah fuck those people, getting enjoyment out of things, who do they think they are?
>>10054717>Just need a Hordak, and maybe one more Horde Trooper now.You sure do. I suggest grabbing Buzz Saw before he disappears.
Any custom stuff yall recommend buying? I ordered the extra Webstor legs off Etsy
>>10054961There's a bunch of stuff I've considered buying, but the last time I tried to buy something MotU related on Etsy I got burned.Did get my money back, but left a sour taste in my mouth
>>10054961I like the ideas but either the stuff is too expensive or the fucker wants $10 to mail a 1oz item.
>>10054961None, honestly. I'm very neurotic about custom/fanmade stuff. Unless it's a resin figure, or a knockoff like Galaxy Warriors I don't like a lot of what I've seen.
I want Skeletor toy repainted like Lord Hater.
This big beautiful bastard showed up today. Surprised he actually fits on Painthor.
It's hard to see, but his eyes have that "always looking at you" effect too!
So these are out in the east coast apparently.
>>10056995Sun-man wants the purple stuff.
>>10056995Waiting for Target to clearance them. I don't dislike RotS, but I already overpaid for Rise of Evil, Clamp Champ, Stridor and Flying Fists He-Man, which all went to 40-50% off after I paid for mine.
>>10056995Can't wait to snag this for 10 bucks in a few months
>>10056995Sunpill me on Sun-Man. Do the rulers of the sun actually live on the sun?
>>10057029>Sunpill me on Sun-Man. Do the rulers of the sun actually live on the sun?Vintage Sun Man and Pig Head were packed with a mini-comic like MotU figures, which explained that they lived on a world called Trefixia. Pig Head was a black ne'er-do-well (an evil prince?) whose experiments with magic turned him into a pig demon. Oddly similar to Ganon(dorf), Space Sumo, Digitino and Bolt Man only had text bios, where they're a Chinese man, California Latino, and American Indian from literal Earth. The mini-comic with the newest Origins wave has simplified this to "Rulers of the Sun are from Trefixia."
>>10057019I thought I was the only one getting burned, didn't mind paying full MSRP for roton since it's so damn fun but if the ruler set gets me I'll be pissed. Waiting for Xmas sales to get castle greyskull since shipping will be stupid high.
I think it was suppose to be "shadow-dwelling"
>>10057510Or maybe Pig-Head is just really big into pro wrestling and he lives in the ring
And sneaky Mattel didn't remake old katana for Sumo but just reuse Jitsu's. I suppose no one will care.Trying to guess Exclusive Sumo - shiny paint and Ninjor's nunchucks.
Teela's snake armor is funny, it will be forever packed with her toys but almost no one will use it.
>>10054254bruh, I'll buy that just to have He-Man Jr.
>>10054874If he lives in my town wal-mart has one more left on clearance for $5
>>10057519? I wasn't going to have her wear it when I get the latest version with bonus bird. I think she looks good in it, but the zoar pack will be more of a palace garb type thing for me.
Is it wrong if Clamp Champ's a bad guy in my universe?
>>10057555I swapped his gear with the Ultimate Warrior He-Man, Warrior's wearing the blue battle vest now and Clamp's wearing the red armbands, the warrior chestguard and the surprisingly based for Clamp red fur cape that gives Clamp a very 'darkest Africa' feel now
>>10057573I just realized if I put Warrior's knee-pads on Clamp as well that the kneepads and the chest piece both have a huge W on them. He's Wakanda-Man
I sure wish stores would get rid of that fucking Revelations Skelegod. I'm real tired of seeing it. Mostly cause of the awkward shape and how no store seems to understand how to set pegs up around it to give it space so it's not hanging at an angle and falling off and knocking everything else over.
>>10057555The alternate grinning head does look sinister.
>>10057620Here he is with some of Ultimate Warrior He-Man's gear, it fits him.
>>10057660Which leaves poor Warrior to dress in Clamp's gear
>>10057660One more minor tweak, I gave him the knee-pads and him and Warrior swapped boots. Now he's full on Wakanda-Man. Maybe I'll buy a Sun-Man for him to feud/team with.
>>10057617Have them swap around harnesses.Too bad that Mekaneck isn't regular wave. Imagine if Ripper had 200x Neck with swappable Snake Man parts.
Former allies in the Eternian Forces, now bitter rivals.
>>10053787What are the chances of getting a new blue 2000x style Merman like the one in the Aquaman 2 pack?
>>10057555It's your lore dude, I do that stuff all the time. >>10057669>>10057660Damn I wish I'd quit being a jerk and open my wrassled men, warrior looks good in any garb.
Do you think Stinkor is silent but deadly or loud?>>10057698I think there was plenty Mer-Men.
>>10057547finally, a toy of this guy
>>10057782>plentyI want a blue one, dammit.
>>10057698I think we're probably primed for a bunch of 200x Evil Warrior variants.Consider:Two Bad is the only "main" Evil Warrior that isn't released, revealed or leaked by MexicansIf Origins continues, Mattel only has 3 ways they can go in the main line>put out the "bottom of the barrel" Evil Warriors from 1987 (all are unpopular and require all new tooling)>put out non-vintage Evil Warriors (either from cartoons or OCs, ie Batroses or Missile Toads)>stick to variants of cash cowsIt's Mattel, we all know what they're gonna do, so I'd say 200x Mer-Man is likely. They'll mostly fill the retail line with variants of Beast Man, Mer-Man and Trap Jaw, drip feed those last few dregs to maybe like 1 a year, and stick all the Filmation and OC guys on Mattel Creations.It's either that or no more Evil Warriors at retail at all
>>10057816>LOP could be regular citizen Merman>vintage could be evil Merman>Blue could be heroic MermanHmmm. No, I don't need more than my one LOP.
Serious question, do I spend the average $25 to get the Revelation He-Man and Revelation Skeletor or the $35 or so for the Origins He-Man and Origins Skeletor? And which Skeletor is the best, the grim smile one or the onions-face skedditor one? Or do I shell out the extra $3 each and get the Battle Armor variants?
>>10057856I would go with Origins, but I don't know about the 35$ a piece for them. I didn't like the first run face, but his gaping mouth can have so many different emotions that I love it now. I would get the battle armor variants if you really want the other heads, but overall if you aren't a MOTU fan you could skip them.
>>10057856If you are just wanting figures of them instead of starting a collection then I'd go revelation. But revelation has its own variations of them too.
>>10057873I have these 3 already>>10057695would Revelation go with this height? I know it's a little taller but I'd expect both He-Man and Skeletor to heroically tower over everyone else anyway.I'm not collecting. I just want to pose them and take dumb pictures and to play around with them a bit
>>10057873also, a big deal-breaker here, do the revelation he-man and skeletor swords stick together to make the super sword like the origins ones?
there's such a terrible price difference on amazzzzzon between canada and the states. I know it's my fault for living in canada but the prices are more than double for these figures
I had an Amazon gift card balance, so using that I was able to pay a whopping $4 on my Visa to order the Battle Armor Skeletor which will be here Tuesday and the Battle Armor He-Man which will be here Thursday.I'm stoked.
>>10057885No. Revelations He-man has the sword in full. Only the original releases of Skeletor, He-man and their battle armor versions have the half swords. HAYVPN
>>10054398The H serves as a stylized clamp!
>>10057930>The H serves as a stylized clamp!Haha, that works for me!Fantastic pic btw
>>10057885Revelations He-Man and Skeletor are really bad. If you want something at that scale, the New Eternia versions are miles better.
>>10057782>I think there was plenty Mer-Men.We still need this guy in Origins - I'm happy enough with the S7, but it isn't worth what people try to charge for it.I'll happily take a MV New Eternia, too.To be honest, I'll take as many Mer-Mans as I can get.
>>10057880>I just want to pose them and take dumb pictures and to play around with them a bitOrigins then, without a doubt>>10057945>Revelations>New EterniaIn all honesty, I really like both
>>10057948Id like his henchmen from that one episode.
>>10057945I like both, aside from the joint tolerances being more weird on Revelation Skeletor.
>>10057930>right after being experimented on by Hordak, Snout Spout asserts dominance
So I got classic he man and prince Adam coming, no weapons just figures, I'm really curious about the difference between them and classic.
>>10057955>>10057993I just can't stand the revelation faces. The cartoony-ness clashes too much with the more "realistic" bodies. I do prefer Origins over either of these, though.
>>10058355>headsculptsYou're definitely far from alone there, but I honestly find them really characterful
>>10054737Unfortunately sunman looks like Tracy Morgan
>>10057051>Space Sumo, Digitino and Bolt Man only had text bios, where they're a Chinese man, California Latino, and American Indian from literal Earth.I wonder if they know Adam's mom?
>>10058610I knew her on Spring Break, iykwim
>>10058610Even WWE Mr T pity the fool who hasn't tasted that sweet-sweet white chocolate.
>>10058569that be the awesomest skit. pstmvk
Just got the new Beastman, what do I think of it bros?
Anyone else have this guy? What's your preferred look?
>>10058768Huge buyer's remorse.
>>10058840None of that here, I like it
>>10058819if you have revelations beastman you can have both looks
>>10058865And if you have nether than you can have none of the looks!
>>10058850>Fran Drescher on the background likes new Beastie boy.Wish the deluxe included a closed mouth head option.
>>10058610>I wonder if they know Adam's mom?I'm sure Sun-Man and Clamp Champ know Adam's mom quite well...
>>10058453great now shop He-Man holding the power sword at him into the photo
>>10059213Okay that's pretty based.I have a semi-crippling marijuana addiction, I never though to use that in a beneficial way for smoke effects
>>10059237>blowing marijuanna smoke at your figuresIshygddt
>>10059242Clawful's got the same problem as me, he says don't be a square
>>10059244I smoke, I just don't blow the smoke at my collectibles or even smoke indoors.
>>10059244Did you know that Clawful had a brother named Lobstor? Lobstor was the most beloved of Clawful's friend's and family. They were inseparable. During one fateful adventure Clawful and Lobstor got themselves into trouble when they tried entering the grounds of Castle Greyskull through the lake and moat waterway system. They got split up and Lobstor got accosted by heroes. Clawful had to stand there helplessly and watch from a distance as Warrior-Man gruesomely destroyed his most beloved brother.Lobstor was literally and figuratively torn limb from limb, and the only part of him that exists to this day is used as the breastplate in Warrior-Man's armor set.Imagine that, a great undersea legend like Lobstor, and now he's armor. I think Clawful has the right to smoke a little reefer desu.
>>10053787is there a good place to get extra hands, weapons, armors, etc?seems like 3rd party accessories would sell. world of warcraft style armor sets or whatever that you can collect piece by piece or as a complete set, different cool weapons, etc
Here's where we're at so far in my universe:Hordak, using his powers of manipulation and mind-control kidnapped Clamp Champ and mind-broke him to the point that Champ now believes he's an Original Eternian. Rebranding himself as WE-Man and creating a logo that is both reminiscent of the Horde insignia as well as the letter W, he made it his mission to exterminate those who he believes to be colonizers on his rightful soil.Using his powers of animism, while also being given a slight boost from Hordak to amplify the spell, WE-Man was able to locate and successfully call forth Clawful from the murky depths, luring him away from his decade of self-imposed isolation after witnessing the death/murder of his brother Lobstor at the hands of Warrior-Man.Will they convince him to join them in their plot to weaken Castle defenses and morale?
>>10059249I smoke around them when I'm playing but most everything else is in a ditch room. I use a chillum so all the extra just slowly dissapates. Glad I'm not the only one that smokes, felt like a dirty secret. Completely random but I applied for a position at the local cultivation farm, I like their gummies so why not.
>>10059340Looking forward to part two of this story, rip lobstor, We barely knew ye.
>>10059350Well, the Sorceress obviously smartened up Warrior-Man to what they're up to with the re-emerging Clawful possibly teaming up with WE-Man and Hordak, so he's had time to prepare. Using the power of Destrucity he was able to conjure the $2.50 dollar store spirit of Dragon Energy.
>>10058819i keep regretting not getting this guy for half off on amazon's fuckupalthough it would have been the first release with way too heavy chest wash, so ehbut my rule for masterverse is not to get anything i have already in originsthe exception being trap jaw, my favourite master
>>10058819I got the first version, I'm behind on revelation figures. I'd get trap or tri first before double dipping on beast man. The first one is cool, sell me on this one.
>>10059627This is my first one, so I'm not sure what the one you have comes with but>Unga club>Cool looking removable armor>decent articulation
>>10059796Can you get Elvira naked?What's the boobs look like?
>>10059796First one has same stuff: whip and swappable hands. Do all Masterverses come with extra hands?
>>10059831Orbs of salty sand
Finally found a Hordesman who fits. I was hoping to use Mantenna, but he doesn't fit. I always thought the ROTON looks like a Jorde vehicle
>>10059845Yep, all have at least 2 pairs of hands. In terms of accessories some come with a lot more than others. I guess that's how things are costed out, probably.
>>10059796Fudge man, it has enough to justify getting two. Nice shot, shows me what I need to know atleast. Never found an Elvira, looks good, saw her in an episode of C.H.i.P.s this week.
How would you like Blast-Attack to get second Deluxe head that is way more snake-themed?
>>10060037I'd hate it and not use it, personally, because I don't use BA with that faction.
>>10059919>Yep, all have at least 2 pairs of hands.The hands are kind of a weak point, they should sell bundle packs of accessories. different types of hand poses, different gloves, whatever. I have Battle Armor He-Man coming Thursday (Battle Armor Skeletor is coming tomorrow) so I'm looking forward to having a gripper hand for Warrior-Man and then I'll also have a clenched fist for He-Man.
>>10060061I'm talking for Origins I don't know anything about the other lines, but using WWE Warrior-Man because he fits in awesomely and his gear was stolen and repurposed by a brainwashed Clamp Champ as his WE-Man armor. So Warrior-Man also has a reason to be there.
Thanks to Grizzlor's... sacrifice, Force Captain Adam finally has normal boots. No one knows why he cuts his legs off instead of trading shoes, but they're also too scared to ask.
>>10060089Fuk ya! They fit perfectly for Force Captain Adam
So... Would it be insensitive to get an Anti-Eternia He-Man just for the comedic 'black-face' possibilities that come from head swaps?
So any lore suggests that Hordak is a vampire? I planning to make a display of vampire figures from Halloween but I'm not sure if he could fit in.
>>10060177According to the designers and concept art, his face is based on African witch doctor masks, which is where most of the "vampire" comes from.There's a long-standing fan theory that the Evil Horde is based off classic movie monsters (of which Hordak would be the vampire), but there's no hard evidence to corroborate it
>>10060191wasn't Mosquitor the vampire?
>>10054556I wish he had a more skunk-like faceyes, I am a furry.
>>10060411Me too. The mask on him helps me imagine he has a snout at leasanyxd.t
>>10060411>>10060419Disgraceful You don't deserve Stinkor
>>10060424yes i do.
>>10060191>>10060268You're over thinking it, everyone thinks hes a vampire cause of the namesake and "blood" inside his chest, the universal monsters thing is too obscure.
>>10060042Give him a head for Evil Warriors, Horde, & Snakemen. That way everyone can have one.
>trying to find the Origins He-Man with the toy head on eBay>it's now impossible to find fucking He-Man cause everyone puts "origins" in the fucking title, even vintage figuresFucking hate everyone.
Did a bit of tucking.
>>10060426Sorry, Mo-Larr but there is a new homo in the town >>10058616
>>10060487>everyone puts "origins" in the fucking title, even vintage figuresI hate that shit
>>10060487just get the origins battle armor heman, it has thextra head you're looking for and swap it out with your original origins heman.
>>10060634Maybe he wants the full sword tooAlso why the fuck buy it on ebay when you can still get it on retail?
>>10060487If your in burgerland, try your luck on this and just return it if you get an old version.https://www.walmart.com/ip/Masters-Of-The-Universe-Origins-He-Man-Action-Figure-Battle-Character-For-Storytelling-Play-And-Display/160601176
>>10060652>Battle Character For Storytelling Play And DisplayYou had me at storytelling
Well shit... this was unexpected.Hordak and Skeletor were finally able to get He-Man 2v1 and in a compromised position, while he was bathing in the Eternian Pools.After a long and hard-fought battle He-Man was slain. Hordak was able to use invisibility tech to survive the encounter, but Skeletor was killed by He-Man, who had bested him in combat. He-Man claimed Skeletor's half of the Power Sword, and when the swords combined he used the Power Sword to mercilessly disembowel Skeletor, ending his threat once and for all.Hordak was able to use that opportunity to fire a relatively close-range Buzz Saw, which was unavoidable and tore a hole through He-Man, killing him instantly.Hordak, along with his Animist priest WE-Man then disintegrated the corpse of He-Man. Using WE-Man's black magic him and Hordak devised a spell that would banish He-Man to the Nightmare Realm for all eternity.Clawful accidentally gave them a wrong ingredient during a crucial part of the spell and it backfired tremendously. Instead of sending He-Man to the Nightmare Realm, his soul instead was able to possess the body of Hordak.Now Hordak has seen his soul become the less dominant of the two inside him and 99% of the time it's He-Man calling the shots now.The mass explosion permanently blackened the armor, shield, and battle axe of He-Man, and after the death of He-Man the Power Sword also changed. becoming an obsidian Vengeance Sword.Hord-Man finds himself compelled to be a paragon of goodness, despite every urge in his body,
>>10060505That looks great. The body sizes are pretty standard on the origins and other lines, I wonder if a line of different armor sets made of different materials, fantasy style weaponry, other quirky high quality accessories etc would sell?
>>10060089>Yes, Modulok, we can rebuild him. Better. Stronger. Faster. Pointer toes....>Now get the paint. If we make a different color scheme, we can sell him as a new character.
>>10060728This seemed like a template
>>10060728if you've got a left over kronis, now's the time to put his lower legs to work. his boots arent all that different from grizzlors.
>>10060712Switch to the alt happy face and he'd be a jolly guy from a weird alternate universe.
>>Ladies and Gentlemen>>I present to you:>>El Mermanos Fantásticos!
I nabbed a 2nd release Skeletor for less than $10 on Amazon today. I originally got the first one because of the head, but apparently the 2nd release has better build quality.Also snagged me a Buzz-Saw Hordak. I’m going all in on the Horde.
i have only been picking up evil Masters so far, except Moss Man since he's kind of beastly and was half ofis this 40th masterverse He-Man good? or at least better than wave 1 release?
>>10060930I don't have it but it does have that more classic look to it, so if I had neither I'd definitely choose the 40th version
>>10060969yeah i'm thinking getting him and classic teela would look nicecan't seem to find those two in hand online for a comparisondoes the 40th He-Man have a kind of cel-shaded paint job like the recent NECA TMNT figgers?
>>10060992No, just dirty body wash.
>Origins Randor already sold our on bbtsI don't get it. Nothing else from wave 10 sold out...hell, nothing from waves 7, 8 or 9 have sold out, even really big names like Sorceress or fan favs like Mantenna and Stinkor.How is Randor that much more demanded than anything else from a whole years worth of figures?
>>10061105who doesn't want a burger king figure?
>>10061004They thankfully did away with that in the final release version. Fans say it's Mattel listening to their complaints about it, but its just Mattel cutting costs.
>>10061120If it was tooners, why aren't they gobbling up Sorceress?
>>10061105Randor was a special mail away figure in the vintage line. Not many kids got it back then I guess. Now they want it as an adult.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTGYx1Q23bo&list=PLmk8yQ34hE_WfG4czJpKoqY7WnAne7kdp&index=67
>>10061105Many people that have vintage toys don't bother with Origins (meybe just few for test or if they're the kind of people who have a full shelf of Trap Jaw or Mer-Man toys) but toys from 6th Wave are particularly elusive as they were made in the smallest quantities. I recall guy who has everything but Laser Light Skeletor. Every dead toyline has that issue with their last lines. So some people use Origins to finally plug a hole in their collectionSo, any MOTUeasday today?
>>10061004I use my savage he man body to wash my other figures lol
>>10061202If you're right about all that, I'd expect Rotar and Twistoid to be massively high demandRare figures in the 80s, and cost $500+ on the after market. I can't even really think of many mainline figures more expensive than those two. Origins will literally be the only way for pretty much anyone to get them vintage style
Talk me out of getting Savage He-man, I want a Caveman figure and he looks to fit the bill.
>>10061105No I'm worried I won't get one, time to panic buy!!!!!!!!
>>10060892You gave Merman a mustache.What kind of monster are you ?
So another worthless MOTUesday?
I got excited and had to show you guys.I've taken it in my head to start custom making bases to enhance my photos, and almost finished my first projectI'm planning to paint this purple to make "Snake Mountain" base, but when once I got the black base coat on, I couldn't help but stick Hordak on it with the powercon back drop before I finish it
>>10061219Can'tIt's a good figure if you aren't comparing it to the show's version
>>10061318>MOTUesday>tweet another StopMoMation>forget to announce an important thing
>>10061368take a brush with some light gray and hit all the raised edges on that, you'll thank me after you see how it adds highlights,t. pro diorama'er
>>10061396>t. pro diorama'erAnd by that I mean Tony Hawk's Pro Diorama'er, I'm the world's worst video game.
>"Arise, my minion..."So it's not THE completed Power Sword, but it's A completed Power Sword and it comes pre-corrupted so that's good, right?I should probably paint my cardboard backdrop.
>>10061458So what happens if Skeletor manages to collect both the corrupted Power Sword from Anti-Eternia and the completed Power Sword of Eternia?
Skeletor's sitting in pretty good shape here with 1.5/2 Power Swords in his possession, and of course the boys are there to celebrate with him.Clawful's not there, he's going through a bit of a mid-molt crisis, he ran into Warrior-Man again and was forced, through the use of the power of Destrucity, to confront his inner demons. He's a little unsure right now, and is sitting more in the neutral territory in the Battle for Eternia.
>>10061508Well, he's there physically, but mentally he's having trouble
>>10061398I prefer Bam Margera:Escape rehab 4: Doing the dinosaur
Are there any good good guys out there available for Origins?I always liked Fisto and I want him but I don't want to spend $60 for him. Ram Man I can get for $16, but it's Ram Man. Is it even worth getting him to pad the roster?I'm thinking I want an Orko and should probably get a Man-At-Arms or Man-E-Faces.
>>10061582Most everyone will tell you Buzz Off and Snout Spout. Roboto is good too.
>>10060411>>10060419You could always try killing yourself, tourist.
Well,In hindsight maybe Skeletor should have done a better job in vetting his minions. Maybe should have asked why he would give up his Corrupted Power Sword to Skeletor so willingly.I guess a quick spell in the Nightmare Realm will do Skeletor some good, maybe he can make some contacts while he's in there before he resses again.
>>10061613>touristBitch please. I own every snake man because they're big sexy muscle reptiles. Plus Leeches, Stinkors, and Clawfuls.
You can fit the sword and axe in the scabbard without causing any scuffing or stretching, plus by clipping the shield to the axe you create extra storage space to carry other collected weapons or treasure
>>10061582Orko is probably pricey, man e is man e which is great, and I'd suggest palace guard as a sub for man at arms since you get the non mustache face and some extra gear. >>10061597Roboto is a sure fire deal, he has his old gimmick and it's a blast.
And now it's back to his new home in Snake Mountain with all the loot drops he can carry. He's stoked, he just got the BiS Staff for his spec.
>>10061389Fuck man, I owe you for reminding me. I'll try to make it up to you, I completely forgot! I was one of the first whiney babies that day, then I got to do it all over again but with a cancellation email.
>>10061371If you like dying by a 100 paper cuts and drowning in chewing tobacco spit. His hair won't let his head move. If it weren't for cuts, it'd be a fine generic figure though, assuming you got the tar off of it.
>>10061597>Most everyone will tell you Buzz OffBuzz Off was 50% off on Amazon today when I looked, so I got him for $13 and he'll be here Saturday at the latest
This is perplexing and strangely out of place. In Amazon's Evil-Lyn listing all of the pictures are of her figure or the packaging, except this one which is part of a drawing.
>>10061626>I own every snake man because they're big sexy muscle reptiles.>that time they drew Tung Lashor as a muscleman in bondage, wearing only underpants and rubber gloves
Is this worth $49?It would be cool to have the pre- and post- face melt version of Skeletor
>>10061800Put his gear on Sun-Man and call him Vikang
>>10061785That was constantly on clearance. Not worth it
>>10061822>walmaryt.comchange any site to a .ca and triple the prices
A little glimpse into some of the final moments of Skeletor's life.Poor guy was used to He-Man who would just fuck around with him and never really try to hurt him, just subdue him.
>>10061745Likely just trying to highlight the super fun and cool accessory that is inlcluded!
>>10061875At my local Wal-Mart I have the choice of two grey Evil Lyn's, 2 Clawfuls, and about 9 or 10 Sun-Mans.I don't have Evil-Lyn or Sun-Man, which one's the better of the two? Evil-Lyn comes with her staff and Sun-Man comes with what? A comedic looking face that looks like it was ripped straight out of a 70s sitcom?
>>10061223You haven't given him a mustache?!?!?!
>>10061897Gonna have to go with Evil-Lyn provided she has those new knees Hnnnngh.Sun Man is a hard fucking pass for me. Was almost tempted to wait out for Flat Top but got Piggo already so Fuck that shit.
>>10061223>You gave Merman a mustache.That's Hombre del Mar, also known as Tritón
>>10061910did they change from the knee curtains to the knobbier knees for the females because it makes it easier to make them kneel?
>>10061481Isn't the corrupted Power Sword of Anti-Eternia what turned Adam evil to begin with?Maybe it'll have the opposite effect on Skeletor and turn him good idk
>>10061939The ultimate goodness of the Power Sword combined with the ultimate evil of the Corrupted Power Sword cancels each other out and surrounds the bearer in a zone of ultimate neutrality.
I'm not sure what to get to go with Beastman, Sure I can go Skeletor for the duo but who would be a good fit to go against him that isn't Heman?
"Take that furry fur off"
>>10061950>and surrounds the bearer in a zone of ultimate neutrality>"I have no strong feelings one way or the other!">THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE
>>10061951I'd say the upcoming Stratos is a good foil. His body mold seems to be really large too, so he'll have a significant stature to match Beast Man.
>>10061951New Eternia should make a "Battle Cat Man".I like the idea of Beast Man and Battle Cat as rivals, but I doubt we'll ever see another Masterverse creature or vehicle just based on how Revelations Cat just sat there eating up way too much space, so a humanoid Battle Cat would be a nice option
>>10053787bought Mosquitor and Clamp Champ cause Target had them clearanced down to $6.95no real complaints about Mosquitor(though now I need an extra body to stick his alternate head on), and Clamp Champ himself is pretty good but man did they cheap out on both of his clamps, especially noticeable with his big one though>>10056995saw it at Target today here in California, probably would have bought it if I hadn't just paid for my Steam Deck last week>>10057834my guess is we'll get a blend of all three options since that'll let them stretch out the line the longest, hopefully they'll get creative with the variants though>>10060037>How would you like Blast-Attack to get second Deluxe head that is way more snake-themed?I'd be for it, him being connected to the Snake Men is more interesting than him being an Evil Warrior or Evil Horde member, plus the Snake Men are already the smallest and least diverse of the three major villain factions so they need everyone they can get
https://youtu.be/sFjJuJAGR7ACgi Grayskull looks pretty bases.If I didn't already have the Origins one, I'd consider getting this one
>>10062390My problem with champ is the big clamp making him almost impossible to balance, guess it's his knees.
>>10061120He was a toy in the original line you retard
>>10062489So what you're saying is, is that you're jealous of his large clamp.
>>10062734It does have some girth to it now that I'm thinking of it.guess I'm a clamp chump.
>>10062390>Target had them clearanced down to $6.95Mine had the pegs marked but they still ring up full price.BBTS is advertising a 2nd run of Horak for Masterverse. Is this an exclusive or something? I haven't seen him show up in stores yet and the Dlx sets have been pretty easy to get
>>10057617hey dude, I heard you were banned, glad to see you back.
>We would like to inform you that Mattel canceled multiple orders that we had in place for this item, and together, we are collectively trying to meet the high factory MOQ Mattel needs to make more. If we succeed, we expect this item to arrive sometime during the first quarter of 2023.>If we are unsuccessful, we will have no choice but to cancel all pre-orders.
>>10063113>anyone NOT buying Wun-Dar will be responsible for no one getting Wun-Dar
So...The power sword itself is named He, and the bearer/protector is called He-Man. Gotcha. If Adam only has half of the sword would he still be He-Man?
>>10063130Or is he a He-Man, but Skeletor is also a He-Man because he has the other half?
>>10063123Mutherfucka, you ARE THE REASON I DIDNT GET ONE Twice ALREADY! Don't put this shit on me Mattel.
reminder made to order Wun-Dar ends on friday. and not over the weekend like Grizzlor. bc. fucking mattel creations. and fuck you.
>>10063226They're still giving you the exact same amount of time. Grizzlor had Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Wun-Dar is getting Wed, Thurs, Fri.
>>10063132Nah, Skeletor is all Man
>>10063236that was my point? they shifted it ahead two days. i would have missed if i just waited until the weekend like i did last time.
>have to order it over these 3 days >"Ships on or before July 31, 2023"Fuck you, Mattel.>"But it's made to orde-"FUCK YOU. MATTEL!
>>10063226There, just dropped $30 on something I may not even get and if I do it'll be summer 2023.>Masters of the Universe has inspired generations of collectors by combining fuck you and eat shit.
Can someone post the image of the convoluted rights to who owns what in he-man?
Whelp, seems Mattel Creations doesn't offer tracking for orders outside the US, also their customer support straight up doesn't reply, guess this will teach me to not fall for this shit again.
>>10063463That sucks man, maybe someone can be a middleman for shipping? Gotta be a way to get this shit done right? Hasbro won't ship to Po boxes so I gotta pay someone to ship it to me, even though fed ex has delivered to our outhouse plenty of times.
>>10063503Maybe, in any case it would be for next time, this time it seems like I'm pretty fucked since I already paid, but seeing how even fucking GSC has shipping with tracking this doesn't leave a good taste in my mouth for trying again with mattel. I don't understand why it's always when I order shit from the US it's when it can get stupid.
>>10061368Taking a cue from our friend here I decided to use my spare foam and paints I have cluttering up the place and make some props.Then I decided why not take the entire set-up to the next level? So I'm going to take my lowly cardboard box gimmick and make a green screen for compositing. Be prepared for promises of next-level photowork.
Teela meets herman
does anyone have the new Teela and a She-Ra? I'd like to know if they have the same skin tone, as wave 1 Teela and She-Ra don't.
>>10063113>>10063696Searched for this online and it seems to be regarding BBTS and the Masterverse Hordak. Idk why OP didn’t mention this, as it seems like it’s about Wun-Dar given the context.
I'm new to Origins and figures, has there been a Mekaneck release, or will we see one?
>>10063814he's been confirmed, but will come only with the Road Ripper vehicle and will have no neck gimmick.
>>10063123Fuck these scare tactics. Pre-order cancelled.
>>10063824Well, he'll be cool to have, and it'll be nice to have something that He-Man can go fast in. They better have that ripcord feature.
I managed to snag a few Wun-dars in the preorder today. Willing to help out any /toy bros here at 50$ each. They will be worth a lot more when they ship so grab a bargain while you can
So this guy was one of the original members of the Council of The Wise, and he sentenced a guy to an eternity wandering aimlessly in the Phantom Zone because he gave the Discs of Knowledge to Skeletor, allowing hm to become as powerful as he is?Does the punishment fit the crime? Also, I thought he was neutral?
>>10064101Holy shit, he has the power to open a portal to the Phantom Zone with just his eyes? He is so OP
>>10063909Why wouldn't they just order their own since they are still taking orders?
>>10064101I mean, theoretically, if he is some kind of space law enforcer, he would be neutral if he punished the good for breaking the laws in the same manner he would punish the evil?
>>10064112I just finished the episode where Zanthor redeems himself and gets a job as Zodac's assistant. That compassion bumped Zodac up as one of my favorites, I have to get his figure now. He has an Origins figure?
>>10064113Yeah, he has an Origins and a reissue is coming out soon.He was always a favorite of mine just for how bizarre he is. Beastman chest and Skeletor arms and legs and that cool helmet.
>>10064117is that bigbadtoystore site legit to order from? it would cost about ten dollars more to order from them and it would have to cross a border, but the variety is so much better than canadian amazon and my local small-town walmart that has 8 sun-mans and my local canadian tire that has 9 buzz saw hordaks.
I'm surprised they don't make characters from Orko's home world. Like the pig-men that ride pterodactyls and carry lances, and the other wizards.
>>10064130Like a 3-pack of Snoob, Orko's uncle, and the girl wizard. Or maybe make it a 4 pack with Orko.
>>10063677everytime I see your stratos/mosquitor guy I start to wonder what that head would look like on the red beastman body
I gave grizzlor a pompadour.
>>10064143slick.Also, 2.5 bottles of neon green dollar store craft paint I think I've got a decent green screen box set up for posing
>>10063433I dont have the pic, but from what I recall its basically this.>Mattel owns "Masters of the Universe" outright. Any characters they conceived of in house (i.e. vintage toyline characters, 200X, etc) is entirely the property of Mattel. Media wise, everything pre-filmation and post-filmation is also theirs from the mini-comics up into the latest netflix series. >Dreamworks, having bought out the company that bought out filmation, owns "He-man" (the filmation show), "The New Adventures of He-man", and "She-ra". Elaborating further, they expressly own all of the filmation exclusive OCs in addition to the filmation iteration of She-ra, the Horde, and the space mutants. basically meaning that in order for Mattel to use anything which originated in those shows they have to pay dreamworks a royalty. more over, they have to make clear that their iterations of characters they "share" with dreamworks (ex. the horde) are distinct from the filmation iterations. that said, I suspect that may be what's led to alot of the new eternia concepts.
>>10064143this better be the OP image for next thread. it's too great not to be. great work anon.
>>10063433I don't have a picture but generally it seems like Dreamworks owns sole rights to use POP material in tv shows, said material being both POP toy characters (Catra, Frosta) and POP cartoon characters (Scorpia, Imp) but not MOTU Horde members like Mantenna and Grizzlor with one exception of Hordak who is owned by both.And I suppose they also own rights to MOTU cartoon characters? I'm not 100% on that one but that would explain why Trollans are always dead or off-screen because Mattel only owns toy characters, Marlena and I guess Delora? I'm not fully sure on that one because EvilSeed and Count Marzo appeared in 200X so I'm not clear who owns them.Also I'm not clear how it works outside of TV show because Mattel is right not making POP toys in Masterverse so I'm not clear what right they have to to general Pop usage, to Filmation designs of Pop, to Pop characters...Could it be that they have right to everything but usage of those in TV shows?
>>10064151thanks. I wish I had more time to dig out a bike and shades for him to ride all cool in lol.
>>10064152>And I suppose they also own rights to MOTU cartoon characters? I'm not 100% on that one but that would explain why Trollans are always dead or off-screen because Mattel only owns toy charactersTrollans count as filmation OCs, hence Mattel cant use them. Those offhanded references are the best you'll get. Marlena and Delora likely fall into dreamworks territory too since neither had a vintage toy. Orko's prescence in the vintage line is the only thing that kept him in Mattel's hands outright. As for Marzo and Evilseed, I would hazard to guess their 200X appearances make them into two more characters that Mattel has to share with Dreamworks. With She-ra it seems like the vintage toyline rule is still kind of present too. Clearly Mattel can still merchandise She-ra, Hordak, and Catra. It's characters like ra'azz and the rest exclusive to the cartoon they cant do squat with it seems.
>>10064157hopefully somebody can photshop a pair onto him in the mean time
>>10064129I live in an area with zero MOTU distribution and BBTS is one of the places I go if not available on Walmart, Target, or Amazon. It is a little more expensive, but they're reliable at least.I recommend doing larger orders to balance out the shipping costs. It's not much of a difference in shipping cost whether you're ordering one fig or 4, at least in my experience.
>>10064129Also Buzzsaw Hordak is pretty fun with his chest projectile and happy face alt head.
>>10064143Time for a Grizzlor hair styling competition!
>>10064157Whelp... Good thing I had Sgt Slaughter and a junkion bike near by.
>>10064172I'd like to see others to try. It's pretty fun.
>>10064170I've got him already, I bought him and Sun-Man for $5 each on clearance and got Warrior-Man for $9 on clearance.>>10057695
>>10064177ayyy, sit on it
>>10064181Clamp Champ, not Sun Man, oopsI know I know, I'll check my supremacist privileges>>10064177ultra based
>>10064167>I recommend doing larger orders to balance out the shipping costs. It's not much of a difference in shipping cost whether you're ordering one fig or 4, at least in my experience.I put a King Randor, Prince Adam w/ Sky Sled, and two Eternian Palace Guards in a shopping cart for the next time I order, good idea.
>>10064129I'm a leaf as well and distribution for this line has been terrible in Leafland.What side of the country are you on?My advice is to use bbts as a back up. I preorder everything Origins from them and if I find the figure in stores before bbts has it in stock you can cancel at no charge. Sometimes you get lucky and find what you need in stores, but if you don't its good to know it'll eventually come in from bbts.
>>10064158>Marlena and Delora likely fall into dreamworks territory too since neither had a vintage toy. Orko's prescence in the vintage line is the only thing that kept him in Mattel's hands outright.But Marlena has been in every post-Filmation cartoon.
>>10064198>picI love that bit.
>>10064198>What side of the country are you on?the worst coast
>>10064198>My advice is to use bbts as a back up.I can get Battle Cat and Panthor for a better price I think on Amazon
Surprised they don't have Skeletor's Goblins as Origins characters
>>10064202People who hate on Filmation shows are missing out on a lot of humour and charm.>>10064207That's why I said bbts is a back up. If you can find what you want someplace else for a better price, go for it. But you know that if everywhere else is sold out, at least you can still get whatever you wanted.
>>10064213There are a few that I would really like, a few personal favorites like Fisto, King Randor, and Prince Adam
>>10064217Around me Walmart has had nothing but Fistos since about Christmas 2020.I shit you not. Purple Evil Lyn and Fisto for 2 straight years warming the pegs. Then they increased the price to help move em out.
>>10064221here we have nothing but a bunch of Sun-Man, the least desirable george jefferson-looking guy they could make a figure of. He's not even a He-Man ffs
>>10064222For what its worth, I have kids who play with these Motu toys, and my 2 year old loves him. I think its the bright primary colors.It's also kind of a cute story how the Mom created the line so her kid would see more representation back in the 80s. I respect that instead of whining she did something about it.But I do not believe that it was necessary to have 4 different versions of Sun Man and to go deep on the line. Does anyone other than a left leaning adult look at say Diginto and say "ahhh finally. An Asian He-Man like me?" Kids just want the guy who looks like a giant bee or the Elephant who squirts water from his trunk.
>>10064228Yeah, When I was a little kid I wanted classic good vs evil heroes. I mean sun-man's cool and all, but he's not part of the 'real' group, or even part of the periphery. I feel the same was about him as I do about someone like ninjor or jitsu
>>10064228>Does anyone other than a left leaning adult look at say Diginto and say "ahhh finally. An Asian He-Man like me?"The idea of said adult misidentifying him as Asian is the funny part.
>>10064228well, he'll be on clearance soon enough likely. They're supposed to get a new shipment near the end of October so maybe I can grab something before they're gone. I think the guy who stocks the shelf may be a reseller. Last time I saw the merchandiser guy taking them from the box, scanning them into the sytem, and them putting them into a shopping cart instead of hanging them on the shelf.
Speaking as an adult obviously, but I'd be much more interested in a black princess who fits the MotU aesthetic to go with Sun Man and Pig Head than Sun Man's boring friends.
>>10064192It sucked cause I ordered Horde Trooper when it was waiting on a restock, and the Teela 2 pack thinkin I could keep both in my box of loot til Teela came out, but they force shipped the Horde Trooper a month before Teela released, so I ended up payin 16 bucks shipping on him. Meanwhile I added Leech and Mantenna to my loot and got Teela, Zoar, and the two of them shipped for 13 bucks. Bad times.
>>10064242roughso far the figures here have come from in-person and amazon prime so no shipping costs and 2 day shipping. Not sure if I'd want to pay and pray, maybe get my order in December maybe get it in February
>>10064241>a black princess who fits the MotU aesthetic to go with Sun ManI amost bought a $9 WWE MOTU Stephanie McMahon to be Clamp Champ (and Sun-Man if I buy him)'s middle-aged loose old girlfriend
>>10064233I might not know Digitno's ethnicity but I do know that YWNBAW.>>10064241>I'd be much more interested in a black princessImagine the gave her the proportions of Ellie the Empress and Battleground Teela's outfit.>>10064232I think its a matter of perspective. I got into the line later on as a kid. I had all the 87 figures new and all my main characters like Man-At-Arms and Teela came second hand and incomplete from garage sales. The weirdos no one likes like Rotar, Extendar and Clamp Champ were a natural part of Motu for me.Anyways I am off to work now. Try to enjoy the hunt for toys rather than let it stress you out.
>>10064228I always find it kinda interesting how representation is such a big deal to some people. As a child, I was always more into the villians in MOTU because they weren't ordinary humans. I think Teela was the only actual human I personally wanted because having a female character was more important to me than having someone who "was like me". My mom was the one who would get me characters like Man At Arms and Prince Adam because she personally did not like the idea of me having "evil" toys. I wasn't even allowed to own a skeletor until a relative gave me the Battle Armor one as a birthday present.TL;DR cool designs are better than muh representation
>>10064259>I always find it kinda interesting how representation is such a big deal to some people.and by people I assume you mean "people" as in middle-aged old women who want their voices to be heard
>>10064264Not even just that, I guess a good example is the kid who buys a G.I. Joe and picks Roadblock over Duke because the color of his skin matches, where I would pick Stormshadow or Snake Eyes because I think they look cool.
>>10064148>Mattel owns "Masters of the Universe" outright. Any characters they conceived of in house (i.e. vintage toyline characters, 200X, etc) is entirely the property of Mattel.I always wonder about the characters that seem like gray areas.Lizard Man, Fang Man and *I think* Strong Arm were all from the Halperin Bible and allegedly originated as Mattel concepts...but no concept art or proto toys, so does Mattel own them? (Even if only the names and Mattel could fully redesign them for use)And Octavia, Dylamug and Acrobad were designed by a toy designer, but toys were cancelled after they were already in the show, so does Mattel own them as long as the stick to the concept art?Or does the fact that all of the above only appeared in cartoons basically mean Mattel "forfeited" them?
for C$35 on amazon this looks like a great deal. I like that you can customize it for the eternians or the horde depending on who's in the scene
>>10064201Marlena and Delora also appeared in minicomics. If Mattel owns and has the right to use anything from minicomics, those two and green Granamyr are also owned by Mattel.I also wonder where Golden Books fall.Do Mattel own Goat Man and Skelcons?
>>10064274The customization was the selling point for me. I paid 13 USD for it last year at Target.
>>10064264>>10064269Actually an even better example is someone who would say Panthro is their favorite Thundercat because he was "black coded" whereas he was my favorite because he was "ninja coded" and drove the Thunder tank.
>>10064279it'll be about a month before I can make it to a city with more than 20,000 people so maybe then I can check out some stores.
>>10064158Shadow Weaver is getting a toy right now.
>>10064277They appeared in Revelation so most likely. >>10064259There are very little heroes that wear glasses but I can assure you that never made me gravitate towards Harry Potter, no more than I gravitated to left-handed or people who shared my first name.When I was kid I usually was most interested in the weirdest characters. Beast and Nightcrawler from X-Men, Thing from Fantastic Four, Beast Boy from Teen Titans...
>>10064286I'd just look online, the sky sled is like two years old now so I doubt it's on many shelves. Getting prince Adam was my main reason for buying it.
>>10064295>They appeared in Revelation so most likelyI hope you're right, but Revelation also had Filmation Hoverbots and Pigboy from the live action movie, both of which people say Mattel doesn't own, so being in that show might not mean much
>>10064299yeah, sky sled + adam, battle cat, panthor, land shark are all cheaper and easier to buy online, but I may get lucky and find a Mer-Man, or Stinkor, or one of those other characters
>>10064295That's kinda amusing to me because one of my highschool friends who wore glasses would gravitate toward characters who wear glasses, like Mousse from Ranma 1/2, for example.
Well, I finished my green screen box and took quick test picture. I don't know how to properly light it so it doesn't cast a green glow on what I'm photographing, but once I learn to do that and learn how to compose the image I think I could have some serious fun.
>>10064376The green glow can be edited by darkening it to a more dark brownish color, iircc. Then it'll look more like shadowing.
>>10064142Savage Mosquitor is pretty rad.
>>10064381awesome, I'll try that. I really would like to try some stop motion. Through my google play monthly subscription thing it comes with a free stop motion animation app called stop motion studio pro so who knows
Do you think we'll ever see an Origins Saurod that spits sparks?
>>10064402They couldn't even be bothered to give Kobra Khan his perfume bottle neck. No chance in hell of them recreating Saurod's feature in any capacity
>>10064385Stop motion is really difficult to do well, but I encourage your venture into it. I tried to do it once with a super posable Raimi 3 Spider-man and it turned out awful and all I was trying to do was a walk cycle. QQ
>>10064418Not to mention the safety issues, since it was basically a cigarette lighter without the lighter fluid.
>>10064429it wouldn't be done well, it would be 3 seconds of torso action
>>10064432They could get around safety issues by subbing in led lights or something to light up his mouth with no actual sparks.But again, that would require more effort than just slapping an effect piece in the box, so Mattel will go for the path of least resistance. The days of being clever and putting in effort to recreate features in a new way peaked with Mantenna and Snout Spout. It's downhill from here
>>10064402I'm betting he'll be made like Khan with sparky pacifier.>>10064460I feel like Blast-Attak is their last change to try being clever. Maybe Laser Light Skeletor.
>>10064523Best case scenario, he actually has the trigger and flies apartNot the best, but acceptable, he's modular vertically instead of horizontally so you can at least pop him apart and pose him like his boxart, but no springs, you do it manuallyWorst case, torso is an armor piece over standard buck like Classics because "fuck you, no one likes Blast-Attak anyway, who cares?"
>>10064523I feel like Dragstor could be done with his gimmick in place pretty easily. I've purchased some cheap Kamen Rider candy toys that pull that gimmick off.
>>10064241Didn't Olmec make a She-Ra style figure line as well? I feel like the rest of Olmec's output is falling through the cracks because Sun-Man is getting all the spotlight.Would be funny if Hasbro decided to introduce the Bronze Bombers into the official GI Joe canon though
>>10064652They did, Butterfly Woman. She had 2 friends.
So, why are we calling it "Rulers of the Sun" when it was clearly "Sun-Man and the Sun People"?
Trying the a-sym fur look.
Found in southern California, check your targets
>>10064681>check your targets>and watch out for those fighters!
>>10064192Fellow leaf here. Order from BBTS all the time. Agree in maximizing shipments. I suggest keeping each shipment under a hundo leaf bucks to avoid extra duties. It has worked for me everytime so far, my next order I may get hit cuz its my first one over that threshold in a bit
>>10064198Walmart has some stuff but I would avoid TRU.I generally order my Star Wars stuff from Dorkside or bbts.
>>10064768My impatience usually wins out and I never end up accruing big POLs.I intended to leave Whiplash until Kobra Khan eventually shows up...lasted about a week before I shipped him anyway.
>>10064652Bronze bombers would be nice, I think someone is doing eagle force so it's not too crazy.
>>10064201shit you're right, she might fall into the "shared" pile then. >>10064277>Golden Books>Goat Man>Skelconsall of these are firmly in mattel's camp for different reasons. in the case of goat man it's because they drew concept art for him in house. as for green granamyr, skelcons, and the rest of the golden book exclusive characters they all fall under mattel's umbrella because matty always retained the rights to the comics and related literature.
>>10064221>>10064222my local wallyworld was nothing but walls of beastmen for two years before they abruptly got rid of everything and then downsized motu to just deluxe origins, masterverse battle cats, and cgi bikes.
>>10064272>Lizard Man, Fang Man and *I think* Strong Arm were all from the Halperin Bible and allegedly originated as Mattel concepts...but no concept art or proto toys, so does Mattel own them? (Even if only the names and Mattel could fully redesign them for use)they probably fall into shared territory if I had to guess. Im unsure honestly>Octavia, Dylamug and Acrobad were designed by a toy designer, but toys were cancelled after they were already in the show, so does Mattel own them as long as the stick to the concept art?yes, just by presenting the concepts Mattel can pretty much affirm ownership over them aslong as they stick to their concept designs. Part of the reason this topic entertains me so much is pondering the weird shit it could lead to considering everything filmation dreamworks now owns. I cant help but daydream about a new She-ra series in the vein of "Spiderman Unlimited", where in so many characters were prevented from being used in the show you ended up with alot of odd and specific choices being made for legal reasons. Imagine for a moment a series along the lines of "She-ra and the Galactic Guardians", where in She-ra defends Etheria from the Horde's "Evil Mutants".
>>10064302they're probably cheap to license atleast since whoever owns the film now probably isnt seeing a shit ton of money from merch
>>10064384fuck thats glorious
>>10064285>he was my favorite because he was "ninja coded" and drove the Thunder tank.Ninja AND engineer. Who wouldn't want to be Panthro?
>>10064654So the heroine is Flutterina, her rival is Double Catra, then there's... Trudy Proud?
>>10065049She's suppose to be psychic so IDK, Castaspella? Feels weird that she lacks any theme.
>>10065049Just take a slice, you...you... DOUBLE CATRA
>>10064269>where I would pick Stormshadow or Snake Eyes because I think they look cool.And? Snake Eyes was super popular exactly because he looked cool, and I'm sure he was the favourite of many a black kid who also thought it was pretty cool that there was a black guy on the team even if Roadblock wasn't their favourite. You're maybe being a little, er, black and white in your outlook when the subject's more nuanced than that.
>>10060652Hey you...Thanks. That actually worked. Was fucking shocked, cause it's Walmart, but sure as shit.
>got the 40th Anniversary 4-pack the other day and opened it up tonight>Galactic Protector He-Man in the Filmation He-Man sleeve>Ok, maybe it's just mixed up...>A second Galactic Protector He-Man in the proper sleeveEmailed Mattel Creations to see if they'll send me the Filmation He-Man because of this fuck-up.
>>10066016And you get to keep a rare mispack? Or is he on the proper card, just wrong sleeve?
>>10066079It's on the proper card. Literally the only difference is the sleeve that goes over the figure is wrong.
>>10064259The thing about representation is if it doesnt matter to you thats totally fine but it does to some pplFor me I think it makes the cast way more interesting having a bunch of different genders/races/etc rather than a copy paste of the same straight buff white guy over and over. It just makes the line up of characters feel more varied and distinct for me. I know MotU is pretty good about representation, so is Transformers, but a lot of other stuff hasnt been great about it. Still its totally ok if its something you dont really care about but it might matter to other ppl. Hell I know someone who didnt care at all about Transformers until I told them it had a nonbinary character (Acid Storm) and they decided to check it out and theyre a huge fan now. They dont care about Acid Storm much now but it was what got them to look into it.I think representation is never a bad thing in any way (other than when its harmful or bad in some way then yeah ofc it sucks) and I think most ppl dont mind or care much. If anything I think the biggest manbaby weirdos are the ones who get mad about any non white, non cis, no straight, etc character being added as if its the apocalypse or something. Like He-Man is still there who cares lol
>>10066139>rather than a copy paste of the same straight buff white guy over and over.that's why there's supposed to be nuance with the characters, it's not just a visual thing there has to be a character that you care about. I know I'm beating a dead horse with the Sun-Man thing, there's no character or nothing to make him stand out or make you care about him, other than the fact that his "magical melanin skin gave him unequaled, unlimited, and special super strength."His entire gimmick is what? that some militant mom made him to represent her son? I love that he fights against the thinly veiled honky pig-head who is introducing drugs to his neighborhood, his highlights are pink, to remind you what he represents.
>>10066171I think sunman just needs some lore or comic or anything really. I dont really know anything about him. I think his design is cool with the giant wings and stuff but I wish i liked him more so Im hoping they give some kind of lore or story for him eventually cause I dont know what his lore even is really if there is anyStill think hes cool and Im glad to have him
>>10066181he flies and he's the king of the sun and his black skin gives him endless unlimited power, but his big battle is against the local drug pusher Pig-Man who's trying to beat him by 'smoking him out' and turning him into an addict? I get it, crack is wack and I'm sure there was a lot of temptation for her son at the time.
>>10066016I saw a post where someone got two 200x He-Mans
>>10066226I'd see this as an absolute win.
>>10066139I think it becomes a bad thing when you ONLY care about something for "muh representation" and disparage things that don't like you're some kinda narcissist who can't relate to a character if it doesn't share your identifiers.For example if one was the type who hated "forced romance" plots because they are "unnecessary" but then the minute it happens to be a homosexual relationship then it's suddenly "yes! This is important!"
So, tonight marked the start of a new Arena season. The first match of the season was unironically what will be seen as one of the biggest match-ups of the 2v2 bracket for the entire season:Team 1 - "The Power of Chaos" (He-Man and Warrior-Man) VS Team 2 - "Dark Venom" (Skeletor and Anti-He-Man) [The lame pvp team names are a deliberate choice based on most video game pvp teams giving themselves dumb names]It was an interesting match. - Out of the gate Skeletor CC'd He-Man locking him into a Spectral Force Cage while Anti-He-Man focused on Warrior-Man.- Skeletor attempted to banish He-Man to the Negative Zone at the end of the Spectral Force Cage, but He-Man used his Power Sword to interrupt. Meanwhile Anti-He-Man kept wearing down Warrior-Man who was clearly outclassed.- Skeletor unexpectedly switched to attacking Warrior-Man and a combination of Skeletor's magic and Anti-He-Man's attacks was able to finish him off while He-Man was basically just helplessly watching.- The second 2v1 phase is where it got interesting. Skeletor was overconfident and ordered Anti-He-Man to stay back and watch while he destroyed He-Man. He-Man was of course able to capitalize on it and he easily disarmed Skeletor, claiming Skeletor's half of the Power Sword for himself. For context, never before has the Power Sword been united this early, let alone in the very first match of the season, so this could be a serious game changer.- At the sight of He-Man wielding the completed Power Sword Skeletor used a pyramid teleportation spell to take himself out of bounds, removing himself from competition this round.
>>10066289Phase 3- The third phase starts out with a relatively fresh Anti-He-Man who used his downtime wisely to heal and buff himself in preparation vs a fired-up He-Man wielding a completed Power Sword. - Anti-He-Man, emboldened, uses an Intimidation shout without knowing that He-Man is immune, During that time He-Man invokes the Spirit of Grayskull, charging the Power Sword with divine energy.- One blast later and Anti-He-Man is sent to the Phantom Realm to wait out his ress timer.The winners of the very first match of the new 2v2 PvP season is the team of "The Power of Chaos"! Congrats go out them.
>>10066171Pig Head was/is black, anon, but I guess you've got a narrative about militant blacks to push lmao
>>10066241I do actually want that 4-pack 200X He-Man. I was kinda surprised by how much the extra detail on the harness and the weapons makes him more appealing to me than the retail figure.
>>10066308>Pig Head was/is black, anon, but I guess you've got a narrative about militant blacks to push lmaoI dunno man, you're equating this creature with a black guy for some weird reason, is it because he's a crack peddler?
>>10066171>Complaining about lack of characterization>In a toyline that was all about SHOVE NEW THING in front of kids and praying they'd buy if you attached a little bit of flavor to them.Most of the MotU brand is built off cardboard cutouts of personality of 'Good' or 'Bad' when it comes to the initial toy offering. It's up to writers after that fact that's given any kind of 'nuance' to "Neck grows 3 sizes that day" man or "Mosquitor in reverse". Just face it, you feel like this design doesn't hit you for>whatever reasonand are threatened that it might take slots away from other figures you want more. Pig-Head's a fairly unique design for a non-gimmick character, and the 80s-90s were chock full of "Winners Don't Do Drugs" messaging, D.A.R.E. and Scruff McGruff coming to mind. Suck it up and enjoy the rest of the line and quit pretending that there's some great majesty that's ruined when you're dealing with a toyline that used the 'Long Lost Sister' gag along with a bunch of others to pull in more buyers.Winners don't do /pol/ logic.
>>10066289>>10066303Match two of the new 2v2 Arena season is:Team 3 - "Clawful Evil" (Clawful and Evil-Lyn) vs Team 4 - "2ThaHorde" (Hordak and WE-Man)- This was basically nothing but Evil-Lyn and Hordak using different methods of CC to control both Clawful and WE-Man, while they also tried repeatedly using their magic against each other, which they both were also able to easily dispel and interrupt.- Hordak, using a surprise Buzz Saw attack was able to tear through Clawful and leave him a gooey mess. Evil-Lyn, in retaliation, straight-out banished WE-Man to the Phantom Zone, removing him from combat and forcing him to join Clawful is sitting out the long ress timer. - Hordak vs Evil-Lyn 1v1 is a pretty close match-up when it comes to magical ability and spell power, but Hordak's merging of technology with sorcery gives him the upper hand this match and he eventually is able to wear down Evil-Lyn. Hordak, having spent most of his magical energy as well was then able to rely on his technology to prop him up and secure the win, finishing Evil-Lyn with a Heart-Seeking Arrow fired from his Horde Crossbow.Winner of the second round is the team of "2ThaHorde"! Congrats to them!Current Standings1.) "The Power of Chaos" - He-Man/Warrior-Man (1-0-0)2.) "2ThaHorde" - Hordak/We-Man (1-0-0)3.) "Dark Venom" - Skeletor/Anti-He-Man (0-1-0)4.) "Clawful Evil" - Evil-Lyn/Clawful (0-1-0)5.) "The Sting of Spring" - Buzz Off/Ram-Man (0-0-0)
>>10066325you're mind-broken. what would happen if you trained yourself to not see some trumpian boogeyman hiding around every corner?
>>10066349Bruh, you're the one harping on about Sun Man like he's pissed in your Wheaties. He's a harmless addition that does nothing to ruin the line for his 'lack of character'. Higher prices, confusing availability, 3 separate lines at the same time, those are more likely to drive customers who aren't the equivalent of Transformers Geewun folk away from the line.The line was always about gimmicks and novelty for 5 inch cartoonishly buff people to whack around on playgrounds. It ain't sacred, no matter how deep the lore's gotten.
>>10066352I dunno man, one of us is shitposting while the other is writing reddit blogposts. my wheaties are fine, how are yours?
>>10066362Ah yes, the ol' "I was only pretending to be retarded" defense. Congrats, you've rused us all.
>>10065442Congrats, anon! Glad to hear it worked out>>10066303>Anti-He-Man, emboldened, uses an Intimidation shout without knowing that He-Man is immuneRookie mistake!>>10066325>Scruff McGruffI'm a bong so I've never heard of that but I'm definitely gonna give that a listen lmfao>>10066349>mind-broken>trumpian boogeymanI think that might be enough 4chan for today
>>10066139I generally agree but...and I have multiple "buts"For example I don't want every diverse character to role model with even villains being "empowering". Make their roles "diverse" as well. Make them assholes, losers, idiots, conmen. For every white straight men that is a badass hero is cast is full of white straight men that get less diginified jobs. Some exist to be punchline. Some to be hated. Some die in first 2 minutes. Some are smart and powerful but their hubris and ego will ruin them as they fuck up something fierce.I don't like how everything diverse, show, ship or character becomes critic-proof because clearly you're just a bigot.IMO personally I don't like when people talk something like "watch this show, it's incredibly gay" because in the end, representation isn't the same thing as quality. I suppose it's a good viewing factor to some in the same way dragons or robots are but it's not the same as good humor or memorable characters or beautiful animation.Also, I have a mindset "I'd let my grandma play Batman if she was a really convincing Batman" so Im fine with diverse casting but only as long as I believe they were picked because they were best for the job not to fill diversity quota.
>"Oh hey they've made a GB version of Mattel Creations">Looks at prices>Thanks I hate itGlad I still seem to be able to order from Burgerville (for now, at least)
>>10066366what's your deal bro?
>>10066373I mean, as far as I can remember the only baddie with a perceptible race in the original roster (who wasn't actually a snake in a human suit) was pic related
>>10066389Yeah, if there were some bad guy black characters that would be cool, I wouldn't have to use Clamp Champ as a villain. Some loud-mouth old woman would cause such an uproar it wouldn't even make it past development.
>>10066394>Some loud-mouth old woman would cause such an uproar it wouldn't even make it past development.I really don't think there'd be an uproar at all. Like I said, the only original baddie with an observable race is Asian - there aren't even any white bad guys in the OG toyline and I've never heard any particular outrage about that.
>>10066400>there aren't even any white bad guys in the OG toylineActually I guess Tri-Klops counts (and I may well be forgetting more)
>>10066394So it's time to bring back Geldor >>10066400Tri-klops and Blade aren't white guys?
>>10066400Don't forget Ninjor. And Evil Lynn has stereotypical yellow skin. Mattel confirmed racist against asians. Time to get MOTU cancelled.
>>10066404I didn't count Blade as he's a movie guy, but I did correct myself on the 'Klops>GeldorIt's funny how his armour almost reminds me of the Rulers of the Sun (perhaps a little more conventional than some of theirs)Shame they can't use WWE tooling, as the Mr T head with the hair painted grey could've worked.
>>10066371>Rookie mistake!I agree. Once He-Man has the completed Power Sword in his inventory the season's basically over. It's never happened in the first match of the season before so this could be nuts.With a completed Power Sword the team tactics change entirely. Controlling and stopping He-Man becomes the immediate #1 priority because if he's allowed to invoke the Spirit of Grayskull and empower the Power Sword this it's essentially match over. One Power Blast can wipe out an entire opposing team.
>>10066415>didn't count Blade as he's a movie guyHe's still vintage toyline
>>10066408>NinjorOh shit, that is pretty funny when taken with Jitsu.
>>10066400>there aren't even any white bad guys in the OG toylinewell, Evil-Lyn and Tri-Klops aside I think that's correct
>>10066387Mine's UPDOG, how 'bout yours?
>>10066420>OG toyline Evil-lyn>whiteOnly if this is the Simpsonsverse
>>10066417Aye, but him and friends/enemies were pre-defined characters squeezed into the toyline
>>10066425By this logic, Orko, Sorceress and King Randor are not vintage toyline either. Blade was sold on a standard card, his card art featured him fighting toy MAA and Teela, and his minicomic had him teaming with Terror Claw Skeletor to attack Eternia Tower. Hate his origin all you want, but he's solidly a part of the original toyline, unless of course you're gonna take a stance that NOTHING from outside media counts as "real" MotU
>>10066420I dunno if we can so much count Lynn until she went goth in 200X
>>10066428are the dinos and other associated acts considered OG?
>>10066428>Hate his origin all you wantI don't 'hate' it at all, I just didn't think he was so much relevant to a conversation about the race of the original roster of villains. Sorry I inadvertently scratched a nerve.
>>10066432Only a little. I ain't mad or nothing. I just love these guys
>>10066433Now I want dinos and rock people
>>10066436I think I still have the spark guy kicking around in a box somewhere
Here something i find funny: we're pushing for more diversity!"Does that mean Clamp Champ and Netossa will get focus on Netflix "Oh no, theyll be the most minor of minor heroic characters in both shows. And Champ dies and goes to hell.
>>10066440>And Champ diesHe was resurrected by Hordak, had his mind wiped, and was convinced by Hordak that he was an Original Eternian. He stole Warrior-Man's gear and repurposed it as his WE-Man armor.So he's sort of okay.
>>10066436>I just love these guysGlad to hear there're anons who feel strongly about them; they're too often overlooked.
>>10066437I wonder if Origins will sell these guys single carded like vintage, or in a two pack like Classics.
>>10066437>no Stone-dar Steve Austin or Dwayne "The Rokkon" Johnson for Masters of the WWE"
>>10066427The only insurance that covers you from damage caused by Bofa and Ligma variants.
>>10066455But I'm Team Bayer
New product drop on Entertainment Earth tonight.What you think/hope it'll be?
>>10066458And I'm Steve Jobs, back to introduce the I-Man.
>>10066467Playset. Hands down, gimme the Netflix Grayskull already or announce the goddamn Origins Snake Mountain.
>>10066443I always thought Gwildor is most unpopular toy in the line, second maybe to Energy Zoids. I actually find his non-badass gnome inventor look charming though I get hes not much for play value.
>>10066376what the fuck man
He-Man finally had enough of his nonsense and sent Anti-He-Man to do the long GY run. Skewered through the armpits is a heck of a way to go.
>>10066494So He-Man has control of both halves of the united Power Sword as well as the Anti-Power Sword. I think I know who's going to be the dominant character until the next reset.
Who would want new Tri-Klops with Filmation head with funny shape eyes?
LAST DAY TO ORDER BREAD-MAN, NERDS
If they'll start upping retail toy prices as well it's time for doomer talk to return.
>>10066404Geldor had such cool hench-monsters, too.
>>10066423>Only if this is the Simpsonsverse"Skeletor, Lisa needs braces!"
>>10066474Yeah, Gwildor is awkward like that.As a toy, he's awful. But as a character, I find him a lot more enjoyable. I rank him above Orko and I use him as my default scientist over MAA, who I use as solely a weaponsmith. In my worldview, Gwildor would have to be the guy who designed Roboto, MAA just outfitted him with his attachable weapons.Same with vehicles...I kinda go with Mekaneck/mechanic so he built Bashasaurus, but MAA designed the big smashing mace mechanism for it.
>>10066517I'm already convinced that next year will be the last year for Origins. I just got this gut feeling. As long as they can get out as much as possible so that hopefully I won't have any glaring omissions, I'll make my peace with it.
>>10066498Considering the effect the Anti-Power Sword has, he'll probably just end up as some kind of ultimate neutral unless it just corrupts him AND the regular Power Sword.
>>10066554Nah, origins will limp along till 25. The last year will be as big a pain in the ass to find as year one was. That is if everything doesn't burn down around us by then.
>>10066599They should be able to release all left over vintage in around 2 years so it would be nice if they managed to wrap it up.
>>10066599First year was Walmart timed exclusive. It really fucked it up because Walmart is a fuckup when it comes to toy exclusives. I wouldn't worry about avaialabilty until Mattel decides they are all Mattle Creations only going forward and not doing MtO.
>>10066467Revalations girls barbie style dolls. No muscles.
>>10066417If they make him, hope they reuse the boots to make an origins Seahawk.
>>10066650I'd say Sea Hawk is a bigger IF here.
>>10066639Hopefully, origins sells even though it's in a 3 way race with itself on the shelves which I was afraid was a death sentence. I don't want it to end but damn if like it to slow down, I can't afford to try to keep up.>>10066640We've got 4 mc exclusive figures this year, 2 are deep cuts but 2 are major members of factions. I could see the last wave or so going direct to consumer as the line winds down. Mc is the only way I can see my origin despara happening at all.
>>10066313Are you saying black people cant sell drugs?
You know, I'd be kind of down for entire MC exclusive waves, just to ensure we get all the guys I want before line cancellationNot as a replacement for retail waves, but running parallel to it with figures less likely to be retail or that might not have as much appeal for most of the fandomLike, 1st quarter retail wave could be the first wave of Snake Men, and 1st quarter MC wave could be a wave of 4 Filmation OC guys, just for an example.
>>10066373Im still glad Double Trouble in the she-ra reboot was fucked up and a snake even if they were nonbinary rather than having some kind of episode to redeem themon that note double trouble works way better as a villain and i didnt even realize they were a good character in the original toyline till recently
It will be funny if some characters get variant but never a proper version, like White Sorceress from Grayskull or Grizzlor and Troopers from Horde 4-pack. Say if Fright Fighter was packed with color reversed Two-Bad and line got cancelled before we got a proper one.
Ive checked math. In year we get about 12 vintages (2 Deluxes with 2 guys each and 4 waves with 2 guys each) That's 24 guys in 2 years. Not counting Preternian giants there are exactly 24 vintages left after first Rise of Snake Men wave (including Deluxe Hiss and Thunder)That leaves 5 Sun People and whole 11 more free spots for more characters and variants in all those Waves. And then there are of course all other exclusives or multi-packs and other releases that would likely include Giants and Modulok and Multi-Bot.In short, 2 years easily wrap vintage unless Mattel comes up with new idiotic decision of reducing us to one vintage per Wave. And we could easily keep going from there with Filmation OCs, POP, NA, brand new characters, etc, but let's face it, Mattel will probably sabotage this line too heavily to keep it going by then.
Found the 3-pack for Sun Man today and Dlx Materverse Hordak. Skipped the 3-pack for a later sale (or never, won't lose sleep over not having Sumo)
>>10066566I remember floating that idea earlier, about the Zone of Neutrality, but I don't think that would be the case in the Meverse line. The Spirit of Grayskull is always in sight of the Great Eye of the Galaxy, so it is always imbued with Light and Power. The Spirit of Hellskull meanwhile is cut off from the source so it only has the Power that it can generate/leech from Anti-Eternia and its inhabitants, as well as the power it has from consuming the life-forces of vanquished foes and lands.
>>10067223I've autistically done that too.>New for 2020 = 6 Heroes, 5 villains, 11 vintage total>New for 2021 = 7 Heroes, 10 villains, 17 vintage total >New for 2022 = 5 Heroes, 8 villains, 13 vintage totalIt's not consistent, and we can't assume all deluxes will always be vintage or that every wave will have more than 1 vintageSo far for "New for 2023" they've revealed or leaked only 2 Heroes and 6 villains (that'll likely go to 7 because we haven't heard about Snake Face yet or maybe even 8 if we get a vintage Skeletor variant). Possibly 10 vintage guys total, that's almost at "quota". Maybe 1 or 2 additional Heroes besides TP He-Man and Mekaneck.Mattel won't finish vintage in 2024 by my guessing, and since I don't expect Origins to last more than another year, year and a half tops, we aren't finishing vintage at all. We'll probably still get some cool shit along the way like 200x variants and some more filmation guys to go with Kol Darr, but I'd prime myself for disappointment if you require thrm to recreate vintage like Classics did. Someone's gonna end up left out. Most likely the Energy Zoids and movie guys and probably Multi-Bot just because we don't even have Modulok yet and I can't see those two released in close proximity
Guess the movie. I'll give you 3 hints
This last one should be the dead giveaway
>>10067408Assuming that Lashor is shoe-in for Wave 12, I mostly hope we'll get Two-Bad and Moss Man. That Spikor rumor better be real too.Wonder if bloody Sun-Man will manage to complete his precious vintage. 5 guys left.
>>10067524>>10067526>>10067533the brad pitt "what's in the box?" movie?
How would an Origins Panthor look like flocked like the 80s version?It would be real easy to do and you can get the materials needed at any art supply or fabric shop.Has anyone here flocked their own Panthor?
>>10066801If I was guaranteed a order I wouldn't mind dealing with them, it's just like most other preorders. But I don't think they have the infrastructure to handle a daily order fulfillment.
>>10067588They did release a flocked version. It's like twice as expensive as the unflocked version
>>10067524>10066599 Deer Hunter
>>10066474>>10067408I feel bad for Energy Zoids. So much work was put into them, so many accessories, they even planned vehicle around them and they're easily the most forgotten vintage characters.
>>10067624it says it's a toys r us exclusive and with shipping and tax it comes out to almost $90. Cheaper to spend $20 on an unflocked Panthor and another $10-$15 on the supplies needed to flock it yourself.
>>10067713Nothing about that cat is $90 worth of anything, I'd be patient and wait for an Xmas sale if that's an option. I'm finally starting to see the masterverse battle cat get the yellow clearance stickers, still gonna hold tight and wait skme more. Idk what you guys think, but for me roton is the best vehicle yet. Looks cool like landshark but is more fun to actually push around and mow figures over with. Plus it's just funny to scare the cats with.
>>10067704I think they just had the bad luck of poor timing. Coming in at the end of the line when fans were tuning out, production was getting cut back making them figures with lower numbers produced. I think they were literally the last two new figures that actually hit shelves? Even latecomers like Blast Attak, Mosquitor and Saurod still managed to be out in time to squeeze in a couple magazine and comic appearances. The Zoids were too late even for that.They'd probably be more fondly remembered if they had come out a year or two earlier in the lines life, when production numbers were higher and they could have gotten some tie in media
>>10064295>When I was kid I usually was most interested in the weirdest characters. Beast and Nightcrawler from X-Men, Thing from Fantastic Four, Beast Boy from Teen Titans...Good taste, the least human looking member of the team was always my favourites as well.
>>10067748I just started with all this so all I've seen are the same handful of characters at my local Wal-Mart, no vehicles or playsets.
>>10067524Every movie released in that last 21 years.
>>10066376I hate it when this happens, its already annoying that most companies make the pound and dollar prices 1:1 without converting it but sometimes they make it more expensive over here.
>>10067834Well I hope you enjoy the toys, pretty fun stuff. I started back collecting toys around the strat of origins due to the WWE cross over stuff and it's been a fairly fun trip. What do have? What are you looking for?
>>10067624>sitting in clearance at my WM marked $17 stilllol
>>10067524Wasn't Peaky Blinders a TV show?
>>10067773>I think they were literally the last two new figures that actually hit shelves? Even latecomers like Blast Attak, Mosquitor and Saurod still managed to be out in time to squeeze in a couple magazine and comic appearances. The Zoids were too late even for that.The newspaper comic ran from 1986 until the New Adventures cartoon wrapped up in December of 1990 and never used the Energy Zoids.Writer Chris Webber did a Snake Men arc (w/ Rio Blast cameo), then a Ninjor/Scare Glow/Blast Attak one (with a cameo by Extendar, lamely not using his powers), then Mosquitor and PoG dinosaurs, one for the movie characters, then one for Clamp Champ. He proceeded to stop adding new characters until the NA cartoon started.
>>10066303I've only got a few, My local Wal-Mart had a bunch on deep clearance so I lucked out that way. This is what I have so far >>10066303. I'm looking for a bunch still, most I may never get because of rarity or high price, but I'd like King Randor, Prince Adam, Fisto, Man At Arms, Man-E-Faces, Merman, Beast Man, Orko, pretty much everybody I don't have. Plus the vehicles and mounts, etc. I think I know where to get an original Snake Mountain and original Castle Grayskull, though they'd essentially be shells (which is fine, I can build interior set myself), and the Grayskull is probably missing the door.
>>10068106wtf this was meant for >>10067989
Is Mattel still doing the he-man NFTs?
