    Just An Obsevation But Notice How The Release Date For S1v1 Of She Ra In The U.s. Is November The 7th. Just One Day Before We Get S2v2 Of He Man And The Best Of She Ra, Which Means That They Would Have The Entire He Man Series On Dvd, The First 33 Episodes Of She Ra On Dvd And The Best Of She Ra Dvd Set When The Latest Thing We Have Is The S2v1 Of He Man. The U.s. Will Be 3 Releases Ahead Of Us. How Does That Make You Feel?

    I've come to terms with it. If I were impatient I'd simply order it from the U.S. But I can wait and I prefer the quality of PAL colour.

    It's the same with the mini statues. I have to wait a few months more. But I'm patient. There are more important things in life for me to worry about.

    When I was at Manifest (Anime con) in Melbourne I ask about when She-Ra S1 V1 was coming and the Madman guy said about March next year. Does this help. Also there are hints of MM releasing the 20th Anniversary vers of Transformers: The Movie too.

    Cool. Thanks for that, it's good to know that. I'll definately be getting that when it comes out as well as the other She ra releases. After I get the November releases I'll have plenty to keep me going till March.

    I'm shocked that Casefresh is selling the Evil Lyn comic con figure.

    Whats with that

    I'm with you lorder trooper if I had known Casefresh was going to sell the exclusives I would have waited!!

    Great pics of the wave 4 stactions by the way.

    The big statues have gone up from $345 to $350!

    The busts have gone up from $89 to $90

    Sometimes I hate living in Australia. (not often... just when I wanna buy something cool and it's twice the price of the US)

    I'm going to join lorde trooper and Viceroy. I really didn't think that Case Fresh would get Evil Lyn. And now wish that I'd waited.

    With Case Fresh's free shipping on orders over $80 I could have purchased two for the price I paid for one.

    Well at least now we know that we'll be getting Wave 4 in November (fingers crossed).

    Ihear Oz-Scott, im always looking for a bargain,
    I find it strange that case fresh increased their prices and yeah its not huge amounts but i thought that if there were to be price adjustments they would go down. It also will be interesting to see what prices they set for there items at supernova and if they are reduced for the xmas period like last year. Im with you He-cat i paid $110 (aussie dollars) for lyn as i thought even though a staction she may be hard to come by. Casefresh also wouldnt be making much profit unless they got a good deal as they were set at $30.00ea(American dollars) at the con.

    Yeah I noticed that Casefresh had put them prices up.

    I'm still thinking of ordering my statues with Gue Toys and stick with Casefresh on the stactions. I must admit though with Casefresh they pack your items very well and their service is 10 out of 10.

    I just placed an order for the micro busts and classic evil lynn with casefresh
    micros are $19 yet all 3 are $59 thats odd for casefresh, when the stactions are $15 cheaper when you buy the whole wave together
    still they get them out fast & free post cant complain too much

    I'd really like to buy the Sorceress & Tri-Klops statues, but together I'm looking at $700! I wonder if they'd do me a deal for two?
    I might email them and see...

    Hey Oz-Scott, if you email them ask them if they know what price they are setting them at Supernova, they wont tell you but you never know. I emailed them and a reply said that they are bringing their statues to supernova but havent set their prices so that is an indication to me that they will be reducing them. I already have my tickets for supernova and cant wait. I hope to pick up the sorceress statue and some stactions. I will be bargaining.

    Anyway anyone been able to find out what exactly mattel are releasing in september??? I phoned and they didn't know. Will we see wave 2 or are they skipping straight to the snakemen stuff, when are we going to see the classic DVDs hitting our shores, or even the 1987 movie. Why are so behind??

    I believe Australia has the potential to make this line work for kids and collectors, just like the uk and germany, MOTU was huge here in the 80's, People know about this line. Hell wave 1 did well in Sydney, except for all those MAA,

    We should start an online petition to tell mattel..YES there are MOTU fans in Australia, and we would love them to really give this line a push in Australia, * Fix Uneven case ratios (learn from the USA's mistakes)

    * Advertise, on kids TV, What about a McDonalds Happy Meal Promo

    * Get the classic DVD's out here and turn some old fans into collectors.

    * Get the MV Creations/Image comic into Australian comic stores, currently comic stores have to go around imbargoes, buying it from the USA to fill collector demand, they only get it in short supply if at all. Hell us collectors are the ones with the money to afford to buy 2 of each figure one MIB and one for display (we all do it its ok)

    * And lastly strike while the iron is HOT the Cartoon has been airing for a few months now, and Saturday morning on channel 10 is quite good, look what transformers armada did with that time slot

    anyway If your a Motu Fan and if your an Aussie, use this thread to tell mattel how you fell, I will even post a few copies off to various stores and different departments of mattel in a few weeks so it might reach the right people. GET BEHIND THIS voice your opinion
    Hey I'm on your side. I'm an Aussie, live in Sydney (NSW) & loved both He-Man & She-Ra when I was growing up in the '80s. Being female myself I was always more of a fan os She-Ra Princess of Power than MOTU as such but I would love to see movies, cartoon DVDs & merchandise in a store near me. I'm quite envious of all these people in the USA.

    I guess Australia is just not a big enough market for Mattel etc to come down under. Gee I miss those cartoons though - I used to get up every week day morning to watch it on Agro's Cartoon Connection on channel 7. I may be in my 30s now but I still enjoy watching cartoons & animated movies.

    You don't have to miss those cartoons. Most of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Filmation series has been released in Australia. The final set is released next month.

    And She-Ra starts to be released next month.

    YAY! So where exactly in Oz do I pick them up from? Or is it only "order over the internet" stuff. Because I don't have a credit card & don't really wish to get one either.

    He-Man and the Masters of the Universe DVD box sets should be available in your local music/DVD store. If they don't have them in stock I'm sure they could order them in for you. They're released through Madman over here.

    The best of the She-Ra (which also includes The Secret of the Sword) is released over here on November 8th. The same day as the last He-Man box set.

    Hope that helps.

    What part of Sydney are you from?
    Most JB HiFi Stores have the MotU DVD's. I've seen them in Parramatta, Castle Hill, Liverpool and MacRyde stores.

    Looks great Eamon! I love that you used Faker. He's such an under used character.
    Will you be doing art cards for the She-Ra releases? I'd love to see your Adora/Netossa/Spinny/Teela commission used!
