    Time has been on the short supply for me lately. I haven't had time to read many threads, just mainly thread titles.

    I have had my Kobra Kahn order arrive and I also got a surprise from Spy Monkey Creations. They sent out a review sample of their Armory series 1.5. I will be working on that review as soon as I can.

    I have also been getting extra MOTUC figures. They are addressed to a Matt Roberts but screw him, I am keeping them for myself.

    Also, welcome to heroicnonsense7

    My Kobra Khan arrived today. I'm finding it really satisfying to shake my fist and him and yell "Khaaaaaaaaan!"

    I got back to work this week after leave to find Fisto, Sorceress, Beast-Man, Photog, Moss-Man & Hordak had been delivered!!! Out of all of those, I have to say I'm most impressed with Hordak - he looks totally evil! Also, I opted for the more expensive shipping option when I did my last order (Kobra Khan & others) & suprisingly I had them 1 week after shipping notification

    Also, I'd like to say 'HI' to the forum I've been a huge fan since I got He-Man, Skeletor & Battlecat for Xmas 1982. Strictly Mineternia. I remember first seeing the very 1st episode of the filmation series & I was like 'what the hell is this'? To me - He-Man will always be the dude that punched his house out of the side of a mountain, not a lavender pants secret identity thing with a bumbling magician sidekick! I'm only collecting what I consider classic in the MOTUC line. So far, He-Man, Skeletor, Battlecat, Panthor, Mer-Man, Man-at-Arms, Man-e-Faces, Clawful, Buzz-Off, Trap-Jaw, Faker, Webstor, and the others listed above. Hanging out for Teela, Evil Lyn, Spikor, Wind Raider, Grizzlor to be re-released. Only started collecting about 6mths ago.
    Even though it's not what I'd consider classic - I'm hanging out for Horde Prime considering how cool the Hordak figure is... Otherwise as far as un-announced figures go I'll be pretty excited to see Two-Bad, Ram-Man, Mantenna, Meckaneck - and that Battle Ram that the horsemen did a sample of a while ago - that would be AWESOME!!

    Welcome blogjammer, heroicnonsense7, and any others I may have forgotten...

    Go Home And Be A Family He-Man!

    I'm rolling thunder pouring rain
    I'm coming on like a hurricane Hordak
    My lightning's flashing across the sky
    You're only young but you're gonna die
    I won't take no prisoners won't spare no lives
    Nobody's putting up a fight
    I got my bell I'm gonna take you to Despondos
    I'm gonna get ya Hordak get ya

    Has anyone received a random refund for Kobra Khan?

    I just received one and had to call Matty to explain and they said that it was returned but I never did such a thing! It also seems as if it never even got to Australia before it was returned!

    Now there is an almost sure chance that I have missed out on Kobra Khan and I am a sub holder! I am certainly not joining it this year and if they end up not giving me the figure, I will be cancelling.

    So theres a fair bit of talk about Mattel seeing how the sales go for the Wind Raider re-issue in July before they commit to other vehicles. Just wondering - how many people out there will be ordering? I'm thinking about getting 2

    Im in Sydney also, but further south, in the Shire with the rest of the hobbits!

    Bad news i guess today, after chasing the missing Sorceress / Fisto / Shadow Weaver delivery, Mattel have refunded me for 2 of the figs, and reshipped Shadow Weaver and the Map.
    Happy to get the exclusive, really bummed to go hunting for the other 2 - but if it disappears on the journey to Oz, i cant really blame Matty.
    I had a Marzo turn up with no gem, and they replaced it, and apart from that, my experience has been flawless.

    Im not as picky as some collectors, and am happy to have a line going - realising things take a little longer to get to us down here

    Blue Mountains outside of Sydney here. I haven't had any trouble with Digital River for mattycollector, although I've had my issues with them in the past for other electronic orders. So excited to have Thunder Punch He-man and Orko on the way!

    Agree with Ka on looking at the MotU FB page, it's more active re: Aussies.

    Unbelievable. MotUC MAA was the bane of my collection as every time i wanted to buy him, something happened beyond my power and i ended up missing out altogether. Finally, i get a MOC and loose versions and he pops up twice in a matter of months! haha.

    SH, Stinkor are taken care of, MS and the SM stands will ensure i'll be up at 2am to buy these items. Thank God it's not 4am...

    Nah, bought 2 when it came out but i'll be at SDCC so who knows... might get caught up in the whole thing and end up buying one. It'd be a shame if the WR was the only vehicle. They really need to give it another chance in 2013. And they need to make the Land Shark at that!

    Geez. That sucks. Bad. Even though they've refunded you, what are they gonna do about it considering you're a sub holder?

    I am in Sydney too. There is an active Australian MOTU community in a subsection of the Ozformers board: http://www.otca.com.au/boards/forumdisplay.php?f=35

    Several of us Sydney guys also meet at Parramatta Fair which often has a lot of MOTU stuff. However several of us are primarily Transformers collectors with MOTU interests but it is the closest thing to a periodic Sydney MOTU meet that I know of.
