Hey I just got a refund of $61 from my stands/guards shipping. That's $1 more than the shipping charge for the stands! Looks like Toyguru was good to his word.
I got refunded $61 too!
I've got a question about a very odd experience I'm having with buying MOTUCs lately...
I ordered Vikor this morning - well, I tried too but as I placed my order (just like last month) I got an "error" code near the end of my transaction. Having been through the same process with Buzz Off twice (and ending up with 3 BO figures instead of 1) I decided to do nothing! About 2 minutes later I got an email confirmation saying my order was being processed. Now, just to confirm, my order didn't actually even go through! Yet, according to Matty/DR it did! This has now happened 3 times in 1 month! I can't explain it! Has anyone else experienced this?? I keep getting confirmation for orders I haven't successfully placed - weird! -_-
Basically, out of the last 4 figures I've "purchased" I've only completed the transaction once!!! What's going on?
BTW: I agree with Pixel Dan, Panthor should be flocked!!

Cheers for the response though... and suggestions
That's the reason I'm not buying him - TG is still trying to convince everyone on the Matty forums that it's what the infamous SDCC 09 voters wanted
I'll still get Panthor in the sub anyway but yeah, what a farce that 2009 SDCC vote must've been
I'm gonna have a crack at flocking one myself when he gets here - I reckon i could do it just as good as the workers in china, (but maybe not as fast )
Today I received what is probably the single most important MOTUC figure I could ask for!
A fellow .Orger in the states was selling a TRU Stratos (loose) in the Marketplace for $22 and I jumped at it!
Blue wing Stratos was my Stratos growing up, and It finally feels like my '8' is truly complete! here he is with my Childhood Stratos (and my original MOTUC version, who is still awesome, but will now be in a seperate display!)
Hes a gorgeous figure, the Bright red accents on his armor are REALLY bright and pop! and his wings were'nt Glued, I just moved em around!
Just Curious-were all Vintage Stratos's in AU Blue wings?

Both versions of Stratos were available in Australia in the 80's, I could be wrong here, but from memory the 8-back had the red wings, the 12-back had either Red or Blue - My stratos from the 80's is still on my shelf and he's got Red wings, but I remember one of the kids in my street had the blue winged version, which always made me wonder why there were 2 versions of stratos? Then I remember seeing both versions in K-Mart while i was shopping with my mum. Another kid had the Half-Boot skelly, which I kinda despised as a kid and still think it looks cheap to this day - I also had the orange/unpainted belt Mer-Man, but every other kid I knew back then had the green painted belt. I also have an unpainted braces Tri-Klops which ive also had since the 80's, I think he's rare compared to the regular painted braces version but I reckon its BS that Top-Toys variants with production errors are "supposedly" worth more than the regular versions... i.e. Pink wings Stratos?? Horrid yellow name stickers on cardbacks???
still on the subject of variants - check out this King Randor i found somewhere:

Blue Wing Stratos is the only figure I have really wanted in the MOTU/DC packs. Not because it is the version I had as a kid but because it just looks awesome. I think there is room in my display for both versions of Stratos.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to pull the trigger on the purchase yet. Im a bit OCD when it comes to MOTUC. If I buy one thing I have to buy a second one to keep MOC. I did that for the first set of MOTU/DC and it is quite costly.
hi guys came anyone tell me if you came get the DCU/MOTUCs two packs in Australian Toys r us?
I got my 1st two sets from Ebay and they cost about $40us each, the new packs are STILL expensive!
Im waiting til the right moment to bring it up with the banker-My better half!
(im gonna be throwin a lot of stuff on ebay over the weekend!!!!)

I always get busted because my Ebay delivery address is her work address.
Any interesting items going on ebay I should know about?
What playset did you get? It would have to be Eternia for that much shipping?!?!?
thsnks for letting know staff of ka.
with stratos I have a few different versions of him, but the version I had as a kid was the French version were his armer is a very bright red. ( i bought him when I was in England on a trip with my father)
I also bought alot of other figures, And I bought a two pack of Battle Armor He Man and B A Skeletor ( I sooooooooo which I keep in their cards)

Instant revert back to being a 12 year old!lol
The playset aint MOTU, sadly cos if it was I could explain it better! Its a totally left field Dollhouse from 1983 for Strawberry shortcake- Its three feet long and 3 feet high! Its rare and usually sells for well over $200 US.
Its gonna get me in the shite cos I dont collect SSC, but I REALLY think it looks cool and Rare! again I say...Im DOOMED!!!!!lol
I would love a MIB Grayskull and Snake mountain! I loved the box art of CG, It always made me happy to think that it was Skeletors lair, cos he was inside it in the art defending it from He-man!
I have 5 Vintage CG's I just love em, I have a friend who owns a garden statue store, and I wanna see if she can make a mold of CG so I can paint a cement one to go in the garden!
As for Eternia, yeah Mine is in the bedroom on top of the TV cabinet,well the three towers are, but not joined cos they wouldnt fit! On the bedroom wardrobes I have 5 CG's,1 SM,1 Barbie Camper van from 1978 (3 feet long) and my boxed Starship eternia (huge),fright zone,nordor,At At,Muppets Backstage playset,My full set of 'Nightmare' games, and two massive Jem cars!
so I have NO idea where I will fit this huge SSC house! I need a proper toy room!
I just posted some pics up at ozfigurama and thought some of you'd get a kick: http://ozfigurama.bigforumpro.com/t1...-thread-part-3
MOTUC is my thing!
I'm almost starting to regret moving to New Zealand... apparently there are no MOTU fans over here or nearly none.

'the Shrine of Dagon'
