They're in the Target computers, and a single one was reported and photographed shown on pegs at a target, but I haven't heard anything besides that.

Fuck target and their lazy incompetence to not get figures out until they reset, and even when said reset day comes theyre too lazy to actually get said figures out

Mine won't do the reset yet because they "don't have the hours" apparently.

I got so mad i called target and cursed them out for not reseting and refusing to get the figures out of the back before the reset happens. Fuck target

Jesus, chill pills amigos. The figures will be stocked.
>>
>>8688576
I shouldnt have to want to wait another week, and even then i want this before some scalping piece of shit buys them all up. Buying action figures from target is like pulling teeth and im glad people are giving them hell for it.
>>
>>8688580
heman gets a dedicated peg sku, skeletor gets a dedicated peg sku, n the others get a specific peg to share. just keep the third one clear at all times
>>
>>8688580
Imagine being this mad over plastic
>>
>>8688587
At least you can get them elsewhere. Joe fans are stuck with a line no one could keep stocked and exclusives gone in minutes at open. A few cities got single figure restocks of the exclusive because they broke up a case and sent 1 to each store
>>
>>8688576
Fuck off asshole
>>
>>8688582
Imagine thinking the employees care enough to keep track of this when the figures get mixed up. It's all He-Man to them.
>>
>>8688589
As a Joe and MOTU fan I 100% agree with this post. Just being able to sit back and order the entire MOTU line from an online vender is golden. Gladly dropped like $200 to secure a bunch. Walmart also proved to be much easier than Target to deal with earlier waves, I snagged a Scareglow from Walmart and I can’t say the same for ANY of the Target exclusives for Joe. Broke down and paid scalper prices for Firefly... it’s my second favorite character ...I had no choice.

So far the only MOTU figure I don’t own or have preordered is the frocked Panthor and I don’t believe anyone has that yet.
>>
>>8688580
Agreed that Target is by far the worst place for 99% of exclusives. Walmart will delay, but at least I’ll get it.

Here’s my origins shelf so far bros. I love this line so much.

>>8688629
I work at Target and I care. But most of the other employees are oblivious.

You can move the jaw up and down manually but the jaw always goes back down. The thing is $5 already, you think a simple chomping gimmick wouldn't be hard to add even with a diecast lower half. Maybe it's to keep it track compatible (if it is)? I'm not sure.
>>
>>8689223
>>8689042
>>8688987
Can you put the WSM figures back in the packaging/plastic after they’ve been opened?
>>
>>8689506
Oh, as long as the jaw works I'm fine with it not actually chomping while you roll it.
>>
>>8689537
Yes, the package is actually plastic with a sticker, and there's a hatch on the back.
>>
What do people think of the Super7 vintage line?

I don't!

They're fine if you can't get the original toy and Origins doesn't have a good substitute. Not worth more than $20 though

I mean he can be whatever you want on your shelf. And it'd at least give him a reason to look so goofy. He-Man probably pays him in nudes.

Exactly. You can even make him an evil bounty hunter without also having to make Stratos evil like in that promo!
>>

I love Stratos' write up.

Yeah, I was disappointed that it had no chomp gimmick. The mouth doesn't even want to stay open :(

The good ol' days. We will never get it back.

I knew Stratos was a bad guy, I never trusted him.
>>
>>8690239
Zodac is so fucking cool. Definitely the "Boba Fett" of MOTU.

Unrelated but, World's Smallest Skele is pretty fun and you should find one.
>>
>>8690239
I like to think he has no alliance and just works for whoever pays him more. Also helps explain why he is neutral
>>

"I fight for universal balance! If I die, tell my wife 'Hello.'"

I prefer Mer-Man heroic and Zodac villainous.

BA Skeletor and zodac are two of my favorite figures so far and I didn't think either looked any good in pictures
>>
>>8692051
Some photos I see make BA Skeletor's faces look okay, but for the most part they just seem really, really off-putting to me. Especially the smiling head.
>>
>>8691022
Not op but you str8 up lied dude, when's the reset
>>
>>8692572
It’s already happened. If you missed it, you missed it. They’ll be back though.

Fucking autist.
>>
>>8692051
I felt the same way about a few of the figures. Trap-Jaw and Mer-Man both didn't look as good to me from promo pics.
>>
>>8692576
How is it autistic to just want to know what the fuck is going on
>>
>>8690855
I don't get this either the stores claimed they were resetting on the 10th but a lot of them don't have anything new out.
>>
>>8692650
What's autistic is seeking and following advice from someone on an anonymous image board
The reset is tomorrow, anon. Go out to target and keep looking, don't worry at least one will have them :)
>>
>>8692650
>>8692776
You people are all autists, just preorder from BBTS and shell out the extra $1 per figure.

Does anyone have experience with Walmart preorders? The Castle Grayskull says it'd have free shipping, which would make it a solid $15 cheaper than on BBTS.
>>
>>8687729
Along these lines- does anyone know some good off brand vehicles or beasts that would fit motu origins? Been checkin out some of the Jurassic world dinos
>>
>>8693270
BUT MUH THRILL OF THE HUNT!!!
>>
When's that reset happening???
>>
>>8693270
Walmart preorders are usually delayed and sometimes they cancel on you, which sucks. I think the Castle is going to be overproduced though so I wouldn't worry about it and go with them. I would order two if I had the space.
>>
Any word on clamp champ / ram man showing up? I know clamp has the recall but they were supposed to come out same time as battle armor right ?
>>
>>8693400
I have a feeling they delayed both of them so they could launch together. Makes sense though, Skeletor/He-man are packed together.
>>
Target still sucking dick here. Goddamn. I see sky sleds at most.

Why was clamp champ recalled?

Kinda want a Polynesian MotU character now. Give him Champ's body except with bare feet (re-useable for Oo-Larr), medium brown skin and a unique tropical loincloth. If I recall, Mer-Man's sawfish sword is a Maori weapon so re-use that.

Since he’s just a He-man repaint I could seem him being packed in with a vehicle, similar to Prince Adam. My guess would be a pack in with the Roton

>>8694919
>What would you do? Use He-man's body, Skeletors Head?
He-Man's torso, upper arms, loincloth and thighs with Skeletor's forearms painted to match He-Man's skin tone, his lower legs repainted the same red as He-Man's boots, and head with hood repainted the same color.
>>
Will MOTU origins survive at retail? Theyre making too many he mans and skeletors IMO, dedicating entire cases to them was a bad idea
>>
>>8695123
They need a cartoon and they need it fast
>>
>>8695123
What I think is worse than distribution is the fact they want to release even more sub-lines, like "Masterverse" which appeals to only a small portion of the MOTU community, normies will pass them by.
>>
>>8694801
Since when did they cost $4
>>
>>8695123
MOTU will be just fine, a quick Google search shows that the Netflix series drops in March, which will be the media push that Origins is looking for. As for the cases of Skeletor and He-Man, those are necessary because there's always going to be a kid who has just found out about MOTU and doesn't necessarily want to start with Stratos or Orko. I'd also like to point out that since there's a ton of parts sharing going between Origins and WWE Universe that Seth Rollins comes with Draego-Man's fire sword, so I wager that we'll hear something about Draego-Man at Power-Con.

>but it'll only get you off if you saw it when you were 8 and it led to your first boner
False. I have jacked off to the OP image twice as an adult who discovered MOTU much later in life.

I think that was the exact same sword as classics had.

It is. WWE MOTU uses Classics parts, or original parts. Upcoming Macho man will be the first use of Origins accessories.

Probably some kind of gimmick figure? “Beat up your own Skeletor” would be kind of cool, if you remember way back when WWF and WCW had those plush toys with SFX that little kids were supposed to wrestle with?
>>
>>8696356
Spikor is one of my favorites, hopefully we’ll see him in origins soon
>>
>>8696487
I'm looking forward to Modulok, Mantenna, Mosquitor, & Webstor.
>>
>>8696463

That would be amazing. There's actually a company that makes those already, they're not official though.
>>
>>8696356
>no Orko
No interest. And since the entire first wave of Masterverse is Revelation, his absence further fuels the rumor that he dies in that series (and will be replaced by Gwildor going forward).
>>
>>8696648
Your interest in conditional on Orko being there? Interesting. As for what happens, we'll see, no real point in speculating on such a thing. I do like Orko too, but if this matches the darker tone they mentioned, I can see the old Orko not fitting (but then neither would other characters, so I'd imagine he'd likewise evolve a bit).
>>
>>8696282
Apparently store managers are responsible for clearance and not Corporate. I was just at a Wal-Mart in Lexington, KY after a previous similar pic and no MCX toys had Rollback stickers.
>>
>>8696657
Always scan them using the WM app. Found another one in a different store that was still in the regular aisle with the MSRP tag, but rung up for $12.40 when scanned with the app and instore price checker.

>>
I'm pretty cautious about the new netflix "adult" he-man something about it being a gritty continuation of the cheesy filmation show rubs me wrong. Might as well be a reboot at that point for better or worse.

Netflix has thoroughly disappointed me with a bulk of their original content.

Maybe the designs will look cool? I dunno. Motuc was pretty good for its time but I hated how most of the figures could barely do decent sitting poses. Origins is slightly better even if some people dislike the goofy retro proportions.
>>
>>8696356
So these will be based on the new cartoon, right?
>>
>>8696839
>The motu are barren in n ms but not the ghost town of gi joe cobra island.
;_;

So who has a good chance of getting Trapjaw in? My Wm never got past wave 1
>>
>>8697527
The first wave, yes. The rumor is that each subsequent wave will represent a different iteration/canon/timeline (hence, Masterverse).
>>
>>8696282
Damn dude that's a lucky as hell find
>>
>>8695123
A year from now when the skeletor and heman cases are phased out and it's just regular assorted waves in the stores there will be people asking "where can I get a regular skeletor/heman without paying ebay rape prices?"
>>
>>8696945
Supposedly it's a modern line of MOTU, a 6-7" line with sculpts and articulation up to the modern standards of Hasbro, McFarlane, etc.
I think they have mentioned that accesories would be intended to be compatible with MOTU classics.

Yes, but if they keep the whole rarity aspect, you'd be just as unlikely to find whatever the rare ones are now, and if anything, they'd be even easier for people to snatch it up now.
>>
I haven't found any restocks on the regular origins figures at target besides that sea of Skeletor that constantly occupies space and the occasional Battlecat.
>>
>>8696356
Revelations still hasn't had a trailer or anything, right? I wonder if reveals for the Masterverse line won't happen until we get a trailer or something for the show. I wonder what's taking so long.
>>
I just want to say HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA to the guy who tried hiding Mer-Man and Roboto behind some Gunpla boxes!
>>
>>8697998
Well, this fucking sucks. So I guess the Slime Pit mini case is never going to see the light of day, then (and still no Orko).
>>
>>8698941
Maybe they'll sell it separately with more paint deco (lol)
>>
>>8698710
I usually get worried if little hype is generated sooner. The only good thing about the netflix show is we got some high end voice actors/actresses/xctors/xctresses/zcrectis.
>>
>>8698704
Targets by me just put out figures seems to be deluxe, skeletor, heman , 4th wave peg

Sky sled, Battlecat, panthor 6 deep
>>
>>8697998
Is this new?
>>
>open up Macho Man from last year finally
Oh shit, these are fun. He's way better than the early John Cena/Triple H figures I messed with a year ago when the WM ring set came out. I may grab some different ones for fun now.
>>
>>8699948
Mr. T, Undertaker, Skull King Triple H, Faker Cena, Ultimate Warrior, Finn Balor, Seth Rollins (mostly for the armor and fire sword), Jake "The Snake" Roberts have been my favorites so far. Unfortunately Rey Mysterio's wings refuse to stay in place so that kills my interest in the figure.
>>
>>8701089
I just took his wings off. He looks way too slick not to be one of my faves.
>>
>>8701089
Yeah, I had the same problem with Rey
>>
>>8701126
I could do that, I'm just glad that they're not using these wings for Stratos.
>>
Still no restocks at my Target. I'm hoping things will pick up soon.
>>
>>8701291
It's never getting better
>>
>>8701089
Some of those are still here so I'll pick them up as the week goes on.

I hate that I waited on these and now I can't find any, even Faker Cena who was rotting the pegs for a long while.
>>
>>8698021
They were my favorite way to waste $5. As long as the codes were different, i was happy.
>>
>>8697532
Im personally still waiting to find trap jaw and manefaces, ive got them on preorder but i like the childhood fun of THE HUNT. But to your question ive never seen wave 2, if its walmart only then get ready for retro gi joe part 2.

>>8697532
Oh yeah i meant to ask- you in the n ms area? Im down the street from GRACELAND.

I guess somebody saw the shipping box, thought they were Origins and then opened them just to find disappointment. I didn't buy BA He-Man and Ram Man just because I'm not all out on this line like Origins but these ones are pretty neat.
>>
>>8701866
Will we get a Pro-Eternia Teela. too?
>>
>>8695123
Mattel is terrified of the line dying from what killed it the first time around. Which was no one could find the original 8 figures about 2 years in, which was the height of He-Man's popularity. The Toys that Made us even pointed out at one one point, toy retailers were clamoring for more He-Man figures and all Mattel had ready to send them was....a case filled with Buzz Off...and ONLY Buzz Off.

Kids couldn't find He-Man, or Skeletor, or Mer-man, Beastman, etc. Mattel EVENTUALLY figured this out, and re-released the original wave, but it was too late. kids were moving on.

So that is why when you go to wal-mart or target you find 14 Skeletors and NOTHING else. It's because of that.

Thing is, I feel like the vast majority of people buying these he-man toys, if not ALL OF THEM, are adults. There's no cartoon (and most kids don't want to watch old cartoons) so, kids today don't know these characters. They need to tone down on the skeletors. If 3 years down the line you missed out on him, hey that's your fucking problem. He's fifteen fucking bucks. Who the fuck who is browsing this board can't afford that? And if you can't you probably shouldn't be browsing this board.
>>
>>8701882
They swapped distribution of waves for some reason, this is wave 4. Regular Teela was slated for wave 3.
>>
>>8701894
There's two different cartoons for MOTU coming out this year, one which is a continuation of the original series story and the other which is geared more towards kids (think Cyberverse).
>>
>>8701894
I understand keeping them in circulation periodically, but I don't understand the full cases of just them. Why not just include two per case or whatever on new wave assortments?
>>
>>8701919
No kidding, it's already been backfiring at WM and now Target joins the lot. A case of what, 8 goes out? If you do four waves the first year, make He-Man/Skeletor 4/4 in Wave 1, Wave 2/3/4 add a He-Man and Skeletor. Or, you know, the Deluxe option of just those two characters to get a nicely painted He-Man or Skeletor with lots of gear with their own peg and bigger card like the BA ver and then the regular waves can be everyone else.
>>
>>8701866
Where was this found?
>>
>>8701899
So we're not getting the slime pit box?
>>
>>8701942
A Walmart in Toronto
>>8701947
Probably not, I guess someone at Mattel saw how much the shells cost to make and figured cards would be cheaper. They probably delayed wave 3 to repackage them if this is the case.
>>8701930
In my experience your hypothetical solution is exactly what they're doing. Each wave past the second I've seen have either been an assorted box of 4 with one HM and Skelly each or dedicated boxes of 8 for individual figures.
>>
Origins Wind Raider is up for pre-order on Big Bad Toy store for $33. No pictures are available though so we don’t know what it looks like. Release date is slated for June

yup gone now even cena

That’s all well and good, but for right now, kids are looking at these toys and it means nothing to them
>>
>order in-stock Panthor from Target
>use Target card for 5% off and free shipping
>keep getting delays in them shipping it
Fuck! It's just Walmart 2.0!
>>
>>8702374
I found Panthor semi frequently at my local Targets.
>>
From Michigan. Most targets didn't seem to restock around here. Its been He-man, Skeletors, and battle cats. was able to grab all of wave 3 on Jan 1st but things have dried up since then. Grabbed a extra sky sled and panthor just incase the restocking turns out like walmart. was able to find a hotwheels landshark just now.
>>
>>8702506

Also from Michigan, Mostly the same here, the only thing I haven't found that I want is battle armor He-Man. I did notice that my nearest Wal-Mart rearranged their toy aisle, and they now have a tag for the Sky Sled. Gives me hope that they'll get the new waves soon.
>>
Ordered a panthor online from target, had it shipped to store to save on shipping cost, tracking it on target app, arrives at store day early, and then suddenly not available for me until next week
I'm betting scalpers are fucking around and made off with mine and probably some other people's, and now target has to reorder
>>
>>8703989
Yes that is likely what happened. A lot of scalpers work at Target part time. It makes it easier for them to hunt.
>>
I wonder if Target will sit on empty MOTU pegs for months like they have with GI Joe. They don't care about stocking.
>>
>>8704013
Only if Matty isn't getting product to LA from China which is direct shipped to Target distribution. One thing Matty hasn't been too suck at is getting product in general to stores. So while there is probably going to be a bit of a delay after whatever is shipping on boats now (Chinese New Year which means the factories won't be back online until end of Feb/start of March), things will get better. No Mattel line has looked too bad on the Target shelf all year, MotU is just new for them and it's new product versus last year with WM rolling in the same Wave 1 stock.

GI Joe (and Hasbro in general as it has been tradition for years) sucked for distribution and quadruple so for exclusives. Target orders, Hasbro ships, things sell out, Hasbro lags on getting product back to retailers and retailers tend to focus major needs towards Cali and New England versus the rest of the country. My New England friends have been getting lucky with Joe exclusives for 2 weeks now. Still didn't see them at half the stores here and no one has gotten a restock in over a week. In a major non-coastal city. It's pretty much the Hasbro way and why I dropped many of their lines including trying to collect the BAF ML lines.
>>
>>8704013
Dont assume that Traget employees just arn't stocking stuff.

I work at Target and our shipments of toys breaks down to two to three flats of girl toys, a couple flats of preschool shit, then maybe half of a uboat of action figures.

We just don't get anything in ever.

Oh and just a heads up. In my area we have a problem with people hiding action figures. Thats the worse thing someone can do. Target hates sending us action figures when they see that we still have some of them in stock.
>>
>>8704583
This. It screws the hunt as badly as the inventory. A couple of weekends ago, I went in search of wave 1 for my godson, and the Toy dept. was cleaned out. On my way back through the store, I noticed something off in another aisle - someone had buried a Prince Adam/Sky Sled underneath a pile of towels in Bed and Bath! I smirked and claimed the little victory.
>>
>>8704583

I legit don't understand people hiding stuff, it's so frustrating.
>>
>>8704785
Some people do it if they are short on cash and plan on coming back later on to buy it.

I used to do it all the time back during my teen years when TRU had massive isles. It was so easy to hide stuff behind like a wall of GIJOE ARAH vehicles or Batcave sets. Service Merchandise though was the best. They never rotated stock and you could hide stuff for a month and it would never be found.
>>
>>8704815

Yeah, I guess now that I'm an adult it didn't occur to me that somebody just wouldn't have $20 for a figure lol
>>
>>8704818
Some are jerks, some are so you can go back (I forgot a giftcard and stashed so I could get it in an hour before), some like to hide the more wanted figures during the first waves to fuck over scalpers with the idea an employee will find it and put it back in the right place, and some just like to hide. Near clearance time the vultures will start to hide valuable toys that will go/are on clearance to get them cheaper. LEGO fans are notorious for hiding something on clearance waiting for it to hit 50/70 off. Except if a store employee doesn't have anything to scan, the figure won't get knocked down further at the store.
>>
>>8697998
hell yeah, love to see Ninjor. I definitely prefer this packaging, and as someone who doesn't want to take up a lot of display space these minis are my fave. Will probably end up getting a bunch of Origins though.

Does anyone know of a good miniature stand for Minis? I know the castle Grayskull and Snake Mountains work as stands but I don't care for them, want a stand by itself.

One place you want to look when at target is beneath the bottom shelf. Those things can rise up, and it's like a little chest. Never found anything myself, but I've seen some random youtubers find a scalper's stash every now and then.
>>
>>8704815
>Service Merchandise

Man thats a blast from the past. That and Fred P. Gattas (sp?) were like Kaybee on old toys. Too bad the prices weren't Kaybeeesque.
>>
>>8705266
Always check bottom shelf behind the larger nerf guns as well. Always something there in my area
