    Looks like they already re-stocked; the ones that were sold out are up again. Hope that means they got more subs. And, yes, I already got my "sub" in with them as soon as I saw the listings pop up...

    I'm really impressed with the job they did on him. He was really just a thrown together figure for a filler wave in the original line; just following the original design would have been passable,...

    Actually, no, we will not find out. We have no idea what the limit is or when it is met or passed. And we will NEVER know that for certain. We know only what Mattel tells us.

    And all of that...

    Blade was close in appearance, but it was not a likeness of the actor. The costume details and head gear are almost dead on, but not the face. As for Gwildor, he looks nothing like Billy Barty; he...

    So the time of the other barbarian He-Man was The Wun-Dar Years?:hmwink:

    Oo-Larr is a fitting last exclusive, being basically the first He-Man incarnation in the minis. A simple figure, but it...

    Have to admit, that comment that they were "working on" making it compatible was a surprise; I know the Hiss waist plug didn't work exceptionally well, but to have to have something like that brought...

    It's molded in blue, and the purple paint looks like it is only on the front of each strand. That's one paint mask and one application on one piece (maybe two if they need to do front and back...

    Okay, that one had me slapping my hand over my mouth so I didn't burst out laughing...:hmlol:

    That HAS to be a good sign; the free stands seem to have chased as many folks away as they attracted, so I think we may see an even bigger spike after SDCC than expected.:hmgrin:

    Seriously, that's...

    THat's the one thing that struck my as off the minute I looked at the figure: from the neck down, he's Filmation. But the head is 200X (we only saw Duncan helmetless in one Filmation episode, and...

    True, but nothing this obvious. Reversed shoulders, even fat armor aren't the same as this. Anyone looking at it, not just a toy collector, would immediately ask if it was defective. Even with my...

    Galactic Protector She-Ra (the likely name) is not an NA character; she is the second figure in the MOTUC Team Self-Indulgence faction...:hmlol:

    They went full on Filmation with Sweet Bee; I actually think that was good, as she would look better with the reddish hair amongst the rebels, as opposed to another blond in addition to Adora and...

    The Fwoosh has a review sample, and a clear picture showing the problem with the chest flap. A new design botch-up like this is exactly what we don't need accompanying the sub push...

    This is true, but, in fairness, that means Hasbro's site has problems one time a year. It works fine the rest of the time. Can anyone really claim the same for Matty?

    I like the Sam Elliot face and the changes in the hair; honestly, the original head looked too much like a 70's anchorman and not enough like a cowboy. :hmlol:

    That depends on who is making them. The recent Power Lords figures from the Horsemen are easily on par quality-wise with the MOTUC figures for 15 bucks without sacrificing good articulation (and...

    That's actually an amazing change; it's apparent from this that the squashed face and lack of chin are the main problems with the look. With the regular heads in place, even the choker looks 100%...

    THat's going to happen anyway, and if they have figured out the usual margin of error there, that gives the minimum number. Has nothing to do with the max, really.

    THere's been a demand for that among fans for as long as I can recall. I would definitely be on board for something like that, especially if they came with a small figurine as some of the Batman...

    I had forgotten that specific description of the sub; seems to pretty much preclude NA She-Ra (I don't see NA and Starburst versions as really being interchangeable here).

    Interesting that, thanks to DR, Mattel's attempt at an incentive to sub early may actually be doing the opposite. We may wind up with a double surge after SDCC: folks waiting for the reveals and...

    Hard to say what Mattel will or won't do, but I honestly can't see them making the much touted $30 figure NA She-Ra. Now, one has to consider that they thought UNO was a dynamite idea, so I guess...
