    Newsman Dan's update:

    I called Mattel today and was advised that Evil Lyn was not included in this current release (contrary to what they initially advised) and that "Evil Lyn will not be released in Australia!!!" The woman I spoke to said the second comment with such certainty that I believe that she was speaking from official advice - unfortunately.

    I asked what was next planned for Australia and was told that we would not know until NEXT YEAR!!! The rep did not put me on hold to check this (as she had done with my other questions), so let's hope that she just said that out of laziness.

    For those who are after the figures, I was advised that they are being sold to K-Mart, Toy kingdom and Toyworld only. I called a few Toyworlds and Toy Kingdoms out of curiosity (to see if any of them had anything) and NONE of them had anything. One store said they plan to get some in whenever they get the chance (I don't think Mattel have even advised them that they are available). In total, this means that only one store (K-Mart Southland) that I know of in Victoria is selling this new wave of MoTU.

    This is not necessarily bad news though. We were advised by Mattel AU that the figs were due for release in september, so maybe Southland just got in early.

    Hey cheers and thanks for the update keep them coming!!
    What number are you calling Mattel on by the way?
    It makes sense because I've emailed TRU and they havnt responded yet. Hopefully their calling Mattel and getting the line sorted for them as well.

    The melbourne office number 1300 135 312. Their customer service is very small - only a few people - so don't be surprised if you get the same person.

    To any of you guys ordering mossman -
    Is your order status still 'pending'? Or has it turned green?
    Im confused why I am pending if I paid buy credit card - unless its cause shipping to aus still has to be finalised?

    Okay when it's pending the He-Store has noted your order. Thats in Red.
    When it's approved it's in green and it includes shipping charges and your Visa/Mastercard has been debited. Remember it's in U.S dollars.

    Hope that helps!!

    One other thing - It's takes around 24-48 hours to be approved - well it did for me.

    Figure Frenzy.

    Hi fellow Aussies!

    As soon as I heard the news that Kmart were selling new figures on saturday morning, I rushed off to Kmart Hornsby to check it out. I was in luck! I picked up six of the figures with a 20% discount. I was a very happy man. Orko's great. He looks fantastic in red, but I'm not too sure about the green scarf. His accessory is pretty neat - a bit of fun for the desktop. Cyclone looks fantastic in that deep red. I reckon he looks much more stylish than his original colours. The gold trimmings just really set him off, especially in that large halo. Buzz off is a great figure. Always wanted him as a kid, but never got him. Trap Jaw looks amazing in this colour scheme. Much better than the circus freak look he's usually burdened with. Some people are saying he's bright green, but he is actually a subdued olive colour. Very creepy and sinister. Man E Faces is the only repaint that doesn't look quite right. The fluro green doesn't work, and he looks lke he's had an accident with a bottle of spray on tan.

    I wasn't going to bother with the Heman and Skeletor varients, but I broke down on Tuesday and picked them up. I'm glad I did. Snake Crush Skeletor is just awesome and incredibly dangerous looking. One vicious fellow. The Ice Armor Skeletor is every bit as good as everyones been saying. One classy number. The Ice armor Heman compliments him well. Just not sure how I'm supposed to fit his shield on. His arms are too muscley for the straps. Stealth Armor Heman is pretty cool too, although a man dressed in a skin tight bodysuit, probably wouldn't look too good in real life.

    Today was pay day and a got the two mecha cats. Pretty cool and suitablely vicious. I just love those steel jaw arrangements. I'm an art teacher, so I think I'm going to put these on my oddity shelf in the room. They would look suitable freakish in a still life arrangement, especially after the science department ran off with our plastic skull.

    I'm just so stoked that we a getting such a reasonable assortment of figures. Its been a long wait since Wave 1 last year. I just hope they release some of the other snake figures - hopefully another assortment by the end of the year. Or is that just asking too much? Its a real pain that we won't be getting Evil Lynn. I was all set to hunt her down. I dunno, I've got this horrible sinking feeling that this will pretty much be the last assortment ever and this is all we are going to get. Please somebody prove me wrong!

    Heres hoping for a Mastery Christmas season down here in Australia!!!

    I went to Kmart yesterday (25/8) and I saw the figs. Very impressed with what I saw. I got Orko now all I need is Evil Lyn and Teela. Went to Toy world and they had Greyskull. The price is 79.99.

    My order wasn't processed for some reason (I think it was cause they were going to combine it with she-ra back when they thought shipping for 2 may come out cheaper.) anyway they have now processed it.

    Hi all,

    I have been lurking but the new MOTU got me to post a reply.

    Basically this is a plea for help.

    Where in Sydney are the new figures available?

    I am after Man-E, Buzz, Cyclone, Orko etc.

    But I can only find the following:



    KMART Broadway - Beast on Merman card plus mechabite battlecat

    KMART Parramatta - Same plus ice armour heman on snake man card, plus minatures from the first wave.

    KMART Bondi - two mecha battlecat plus two man at arms from the first wave.

    Geoff.
