This is probably a rough copy. I've heard that the finished book has better lettering and polished art on the cover, and spelling errors ("You're days are numbered!") fixed. I'm just wincing at the fact that MYAH! is now canon...

It feels a little meme-y yes. But at least it's not a complete joke.
>>
>>8218704
True, true. They seem to be taking it semi-seriously - or, at least as seriously as one can take a child-friendly MotU, anyway. Going to miss the larger page count and individual books with each figure that the vintage books had, but what else can you do these days to help keep the costs down without sacrificing too much about the figure itself?
>>
>>8218630
The art doesn't seem fitting. Looks like a parody.
>>
>>8218737
Well, it's not like they could get Axel Gimenez to do the box art, card backs AND mini comics... Besides, the comics are more simply a nod to the way things were. Much like the entire line itself.

Mattel, playing it safe.

I'm sure there will be lots of QC complaints and botched paint on the teeth but for a $15 figure looks good to me. The paint scheme is so simple it'll be hard to fuck up much more than the placement of the teeth. It's not like originals had perfect paint applications either. Lots of misaligned boots etc.

I'm really excited for this Skelly. Great price point and I'm genuinley excited for playability and body swaps.

Is Scareglow still slated for the first wave? He's the only figure I'm remotely interested in

No. First wave is seen on the back cover of the minicomic. I'm waiting for wave 2, myself.
>>
>>8222287
Got it got it, didn't see that one. Even though I'm sure the international version will either have a hundred translations or no text like the WWE MotU comics, I always like reading these in hand and I only quickly glanced and saw the line to Skeletor.
>>
Anyone found these in store?

Any idea how they're handling initial shipments?

I hear instead of dropping all 6 figures of the first series in a single shipments, they'll be shipped in waves of 2 starting with Skeletor and He-man.

Any truth to that?
>>
>>8226139
No.

They're shipping them out from whichever warehouse is closest, or so I've heard. Or it could be random, who knows.

No. They're going all in on this line, since they have to reestablish the characters in the public eye before the kid-friendly series debuts (with its own attendant toyline, due to design and/or name changes).

No one knows anything at this point except that the initial Walmart availability was (probably) an error, since the pages were only found by mining, and the warehouses were clueless as to the actual release date.

They have tried to reproduce her cartoon look several times, only this statue got it right, all the others look like cheap bootlegs, so most of the time they go for her original toy look.

>>8228399
That actually looks pretty good together.
>>
>>8228498
They had to simplify her design for animation. I dare say that her animated look is the more iconic one (and far harder to nail down in plastic).
>>8228877
Swapping WWEternia parts onto MotUO figs with ease is going to give this shared line some insane amount of customization options! I'm kind of regretting not getting in on the ground floor with that...

I'd have bought this by itself.

>>8238413
I mean, if the price of this set is like the last 2-pack they'll be the cost of 2 figures, and the ring is essentially free. But ya, that Hogan is probably the winner of the set, he even has those shirt "rips" on the back of his armour, which is pretty great. The weapons on Austin are pretty cool too.

Stonecold should've been a rockman or something. Or play up the snakeman aspect even more.
>>
>>8238413
This is the first one of these I like
>>
>>8238447
I mean, he has 2 snakes for arms/weapons and his eyes are snakelike, I think it's pretty snakey already. For the figures with heads like this though, it'd be ideal if they could also include regular human heads, as I assume some who just want the wrestlers themselves have no need for a Steve Austin with snake eyes.

That’s why he’s in the play set. Mattel is well aware that everyone wants this one. Not everyone wants a playset

It was the same way with the regular John Cena, though that pack was an exception value, while this one is just regular prices for everything in one bundle.
>>
Sucks they upped the price $20 for this ring and figures.
>>
According to Mattel the WWEternia line has been selling really well. That's great to hear, but I wish they were more widely avalible. The only figures I ever saw around here were Finn Balor and Roman Reigns. I just want faker cena and rey mysterio.

I'd rather have Smith do like Noelle and just come up with a new version of the old concept instead of trying to carefully maintain continuity with a silly cartooon from the 80's that never cared about its own continuity in the first place.

I'm newish to /toy/ and the MOTU in general, fell in love with the series after watching Netflix's She-Ra. I know there's A LOT of dipshit toxic douchebags who hate the series because they're assholes and hate people for being queer or black or whatever, and am curious how people here generally feel about it here.

And yeah I totally agree, the old concept is fun because its so maleable, keep that going and bring something new in.

>>
>>8251252
Mattel kind of has to stand up and assert their trademarks, lest there ever be a Fisto/Kit Fisto style brouhaha again. Remember, in 200x, Fisto was renamed Battle Fist, and Rattlor simply became The General? Or more recently, when Ninjor > Ninja Warrior and Double Trouble > Double Mischief? All because of lapsed trademarks.

God I really hope the line does well enough that we'll eventually see rereleases of the original figures at some point. They're knocking it out of the park with these. I really hope they eventually get a bit more wild with some of the concepts though. Andre as Tytus, Lesnar as ram-man , and King Kong Bundy as Gygor are just a few of the additions they could make that I would eat up.
>>
>>8260090
I'm seriously astounded these are getting traction. I saw the ring on clearance around Christmas and figured things were DOA.
>>
>>8260101
I think they made too many rings and the general distribution of the figures was wonky. It seemed like some stores on the west coast had these figures coming out of their ears and others had nothing at all. What I find most confusing is that even Mattel confirmed WWEternia was selling well. Could it be scalpers are just buying cases to sell online?
>>
I have never seen any MOTU show, but the designs and figures are something I’ve looked at for years. Is this new $15 per figure like a good place to start?

Would the show even be good to watch for someone in their mid twenties?

This new line is the perfect place to start. It's essentially a MOTU "best of" album. As for the shows it varies wildly based on what you want out of the franchise. If you want a more conan esc barbarian fantasy story, then read the mini comics. If you want a goofy but fun silver age superman esc romp, watch the filmation show. If you want a serious crossing of the streams, watch 2000X. If you want a more sci fi heavy series, then I recommend watching the new adventures.

Regarding WWE MotU, Steve (Mattel Employee, aka Action Figure Attack) on Wrestling figs mentioned that while there will not be any Power Swords of Havoc Staffs in the line, an upcoming figure will "include a different kind of sword". Hopefully we see more come SDCC!

>>8262451
Thanks for all the advice anon, appreciate it. Do you have any idea when they’ll start hitting stores/available for preorder anywhere? I saw the John Cena in Walmart today and I’m not really a wrestling guy, but he looked so cool.

>>8262803
>"a different kind of sword"

I'm wracking my brain trying to think what this could be referencing. I can't think of any wrestlers that had prop swords besides that time Hogan dressed liked the Dread Pirtate Roberts and had a metal as fuck broad sword . . .
>>
>>8262852
Ya, I was thinking that the wording implied it'd be something a bit weird. But maybe that's reading into it. Maybe it'll be a Drew McIntyre with a claymore. Though, I also don't think it really needs to make sense (Cena never used an axe, or Rock a mace, etc), just anything they find is fun.
>>
>>8262838
>>8262451
What about pic related? Seems similar to the upcoming origins wave.
>>
>>8262838
The origins figures are supposed to hit stores in fall, though some folks have reported seeing them in stores recently. So there's a chance you can get them now.
>>8263138
The Super7 retro line is good, if a bit over priced. The new origins/wweternia line has swappable parts and articulation, all for 15-20 bucks a piece. These super7 figures are full on rereleases of the classic toys. Same 6 poa articulation and everything, for 25 bucks, sometimes even 30 if you're into mint figures or exclusive packaging.
>>
>>8263138
If you'd really like a cheap flirt with the original motu toyline, I highly recommend taking a look at the funko savage world line. The DC and Horror lines especially, as both successfully expertly showcase the charm of the original motu toyline. Plus the line is on clearance at the moment, so you could easily amass the best parts of the line for cheap.
>>
>>8263795
I still need to get the second wave of these. Pissed that I popped Green Lantern's shield off his arm a week ago and it broke...
>>
>>8263621
I think I might get the super 7 skeletor/He-man (love their designs and how they contrast each other) and keep them on the cards and then open up the origins once I see them. Hopefully they’re actually easy to get.

Also will pick up a faker John Cena so I have something to open/get a feel for the actual toys. Thanks for the info!

Picked Cena up this morning. I bought two because I didn’t know if this was a line I wanted to keep in the box or open up, and I think I’ll definitely be opening. For both space reasons and on the fact that they look so good off the card. Buying doubles of $15+ figures would get expensive fast. Plus, I always end up opening my carded/sealed stuff because I want to pose it and take photos.

I don’t even follow wrestling, but I really like the classic look of the line. Tempted to keep my second Cena and throw him on the wall.

What's the figure to the right of Two-Face?

Looks like it might be a custom MOTU style Shredder

What video is this from?

I just searched YouTube for MOTU collections and found it. My phone doesn’t save history sorry.

Man, I want to get into this line SOOOOO bad.

BUT fuck Mattel, fuck scalpers, FUCK exclusives!

I thought I'd pick and choose and grab some pieces here and there. Then I just saw a review of the Sky Sled, and I want one. BUT it's a goddamn WM Exclusive (Fuck WM!) and an "army builder" with the alt head.

If I have to pay scalper prices I'm just going to skip the entire line. God I hate Mattel. I abandoned them after the Digital River bullshit with DCUC & GB.

I just want cool toys, not "chase" bullshit.
>>
>>8268378
The line debuts at Walmart but isn't going to be exclusive to Walmart
>>
>>8268402
Thanks, good to hear. Still don't trust them to not make exclusives, and their SDCC exclusives are always a bitch to get.
>>
>>8268402
I hope they push them hard so they’re readily available. Not 4 pegs that are empty after one guy walks in.
>>
>>8268919
Mattel reps are saying the WWE line is selling quite well, and the pegs for those are quite well stocked. He-Man and Skeletor will probably be in all the assortments, so they'll definitely be easy to find. Whether Scareglow or Teela are easy to find remain to be seen. It'll all depend on how they set up the case assortments, I'd say.
>>
>>8268933
They’re pretty poorly stocked in my area, but the new wave was supposed to come out/is supposed to come out soon so maybe that’ll change in the coming weeks.

I picked up a Roman for my friend because he's his favorite wrestler and has a few figures of him already and grabbed Macho Man myself.
I love this guy. Really can't wait for the actual MOTU ones. And I NEED a Webstor so Macho can get him for three minutes of playtiiime.

Damn what a great pic anon. Nothing gets me more hyped than seeing these lads in action. King Shark is about to be dethroned!

When is best girl going to get a He-Man, and what character will she be crossed with?

https://youtu.be/4ex2OF79TDA
>>
>>8269785
Evil Lyn because of skin tone? I mean, there's not a lotta lady He-Man figs.
>>
>>8269684
When I get home from work in the morning, I gotta take my Castle Batskull down and pull out the rest of my Savage Worlds figure.
>>
>>8269785
Even though they don't technically need to be crossed over with anything specific, how about Shokoti. A kabuki mask could be her floating minion (or a mask accessory instead of the crown), the cape would be decorated like her entrance attire.

I do wonder when we'll get the first female figure from the WWE line.
>>
Mondo man at arms now available
>>
>>8269893
I wonder how well that line will ultimately do and how many people, like me, just got He-Man and Skeletor.
>>
>>8269912
I won’t even get them because of their size/quality. If I’m paying $160+shipping I expect high quality shit.
>>

And that's all the cardback art for Waves 1 and 2 (presumably, He-Man and Skeletor will remain evergreen, so there should be 4 figures with each subsequent wave).
>>
I like the art very much. I just wish I could preorder
>>
>>8274754
>(presumably, He-Man and Skeletor will remain evergreen
Isn't that what killed the 2002 He-Man line? Having nothing but He-Mans and Skeletors, and none of the other characters easy to find?
>>
>>8276632
Conversely not having the popular characters in their basic appearances available was part of what killed the original line, so there needs to be a balance.
>>
>>8276632
Regarding the WWE Heman figures; is it true those figures heads are compatible with the regular Hasbro WWE characters?

Have zero interest in the wrestler selection for the WWE/He Man crossover line but if I can just tranplant heads for the guys I want to see get figures, I might give the line a try

>>8276632
I think they mean "we won't be doing bullshit like rave disco skeletor or snake hunting steampunk He-Man".

So just vanilla He-Man and Skeletor and them being in every wave. Or alternatively, if we do get variants, they'll probably be packaged with vehicles (like Battle Armor with Battlecat and Panthra)
>>
>>8276647
I'm certainly hoping that this is the case. I'd like to think that maybe Mattel might have learned a thing or two from the 200x debacle. I also like how they may possibly be teasing what could be Wave 3 characters in the Wave 2 art (Ram-Man and Clamp Champ for the Heroic Warriors, Mer-Man and ??? for the Evil Warriors). And they're already packing variants with vehicles (sort of); there's no plan so far for a single-carded Prince Adam.
>>
>>8276647
Do you mean regular Mattel WWE figures? If so the heads can fit with a bit of work. Some with just some heat, others may need a bit of TLC. If you actually mean the vintage Hasbro WWE figures, then no.
>>
>>8276647
>>8276698
The thing that killed 200X was a lack of different characters, not the inclusion of variants. Figures were shipped in boxes of heroes and boxes of villains. There were six figures per box. Unfortunately, the hero boxes were five He-Man and one alternate character, and the villains were five Skeletor and one alternate character.

The variants of He-Man and Skeletor actually helped the line limp along a bit longer than it would’ve if they were just the original figures because people would buy some of the variants to have something new.
>>
>>8263795
I kinda like that Bat Castle. Skeletor would look sweet on that throne.
>>
>>8238280
Kinda want this for my vintage he-man set.

stocktrack says that wave 3 of the wwe motu has been at my local walmart for the last week. i go every day, sometimes twice a day but they haven't put them out on the floor yet (or maybe stock track's out of date)
only second hand ones i can find locally are >$50
fuck everyone that has a motu undertaker no exceptions
yes i mad
>>
>>8281132
Stocktrack makes me assume Canada, and besides wave 1 which was skipped, wave 2 was restocked at least once. You'll get a chance at em.
>>
Anyone collect the megaconstrux line? Considering starting because the scale is appealing/I won't have to hunt too hard for characters I want.

Moving them would be a bitch though, that's what is stopping me.
>>
>>8281220
I have Castle Grayskull. It’s pretty cool.
>>
>>8281227
Was it fun to build? Worth $165?

I'm just getting into MOTU and the Super 7 Retro line is going to get expensive quick. I paid $46 shipped for He-Man and Skeleton and I'm already regretting it. This looks like it would be a somewhat cheap alternative and it also looks like all of the main characters have figures/are getting figures.
>>
>>8281234
Yeah, if you like LEGO then you’ll probably have a good time. It was a pretty fun build for me. That’s also a good price too, considering it was originally $250.

If you’re not sure, you might want to pick up the Windraider set, or the Battle of Eternia collection that comes with 5 characters. Then you’ll have a better idea if you like the figures.
>>
>>8238413
I'm surprised he got a new figure, I don't normally follow wrestling but wasn't he apart of a big scandal and killed his career recently?
Sorry if this is too off topic.
>>
>>8249992
Yeah like he is a fan meeting his hero or something.
>>
>No MOTWWEU toys for Australia or Europe
>No confirmation for MOTU Origins for Australia or Europe

Why does Mattel hate us so? Australia doesn't even get many WWE figures despite the fact they sell well.
>>
I wonder why they haven't used the Teela body for female wrestlers yet.
>>
>>8261264
Man, I liked King Hiss in concept but even as a child hated his figure in execution.
>>
>>8281748
Maybe it wasn't ready yet. SDCC will have some MotWWEU figures, so we'll see if they finally introduce some females.
>>
>>8276636
Yeeeah, when I was a kid I never had a standard Skeletor and He-man. I had B.A. Skelly and Prince Adam.
>>
>>8218630
So what scale are these? the same as the old ones or are they bigger?
I mainly just want Battle Cat so I can have other figures ride him.
>>
>>8281803

King Shark in >>8269620 is an MOTU-esque scale if that helps.
>>
>>8281803
They're about the same scale, only they can straighten their legs a teeny bit. The new Battle Cat's armor fits perfectly on the vintage one according to Pixel Dan.
>>
>>8263795
I've heard the QC on these is pretty bad, is that true?
>>
For those of you who may be interested in Mattel's $5 Eternia Minis blind-box line, they've been spotted at various Walmarts across the country. Here's a key to which package contains which character (letter is stamped om the bottom of the plastic Grayskull clamshell):
UPC: 887961874884
SKU: 598563680
A=He-Man
B=Skeletor
C=Man-at-Arms
D=Trap Jaw
E=Ram Man
F=Jitsu
G=Buzz-Off
H=Slime Pit He-Man
Me, I'm waiting for Wave 2.
>>
>>8281878
The initial release of the first wave was plagued with instances where the sockets in the legs were just too small/tight around the ball in the hips. And those hip balls are attached to the crotch by super thing rods.
It's weird that the slasher villain ones don't have this problem and I've heard later releases also fixed it.
I used a lot of heat to get them into a proper standing position and haven't fucked with their legs since.
>>
>>8281884
I got two Panthros (one via return) and the leg snapped on both, but I have the rest of the Thundercats wave 1 and Jason from the horror line and both of those are fine (though I had to wrap Jason's weapons for him to hold them properly)
>>
>browsing ebay
>see this
>think "poor little eternian girl"
>wonder if it's intentional
>>
>>8281884
Ah okay, thanks for letting me know.
I'm not likely to get one of the first wave ones if I were to order some online now, am I?
>>
>>8281928
Just imagine what Tongue Lashor can do!
>>
>>8281883
>Mattel's $5 Eternia Minis blind-box
What do these look like? I can’t even find them online

Disregard my retardation. These look cool, will they be stocked in with the toys or the collectible section in Walmart?
>>
>>8281883
I'll nab trapjaw and slime pit heman
>>
>>8281931
Extremely unlikely. It'd have to be old, old stock they somehow got stuck with.
>>
>>8218630
I got scare glow undertaker while i was out looking for the MOTU minis. He glows very well so i like him very much. The armor he comes with i feel was a waste since it doesnt fit well, you have to take his head off to put it on, and it covers up his glowing chest. Thats my only complaint i have for the figure and wish the money was used for another accessory for him like a cape or another weapon.

Pic unrelated

>>8283133
My stupid ass has gone to Walmart nearly every single morning for the last week and today I decided to go at night and of course, the one day they actually restock these fuckers, the ones I want are gone.
>>
>>8283133
Undertaker’s armor is from Motu Classics Tri Klops. That’s why it doesn’t fit as perfectly as some of the other pieces designed for the line specifically.
