    NO!! Gary Coleman is dead. Why God? Why do you take all the good ones? Oh well, time to get the deadpool going. Put me down for Betty White and Don Rickles.

    Well, I just receive a package that I ordered. I am now the owner of a Bronze King Grayskull!

    Sweet! Be careful, if you look at his foot funny it's likely to fall off. Mine did. But it didn't bother me since I knew it was coming.

    Yeah, I'll have to be careful about that.

    So far he seems fine, but that did happen to my regular King Grayskull (though I managed to do a decent job of repairing it).

    It wasn't too bad of a deal. It wasn't as good as I would have liked, but I think what I would have liked wasn't very realistic.

    For whatever reason, I just got a bug up my butt to get this figure, and so I kept an eye out for the best buy-it-now auction I could find (I'm not really one to enjoy waiting out bidding wars). This ended up being $205 total, including shipping ($190 + $15 shipping). Not too bad, considering that other auctions for him go for $250, $300, sometimes more. I think this one was a bit cheaper because he was removed from the box (the box was still included, he was just no longer sealed down to the box), which was fine since I would have removed him from it anyway.

    So, I got a decent deal all things considered. But, this is the most I've ever spent on a single action figure, though. The previous record was the 200X convention exclusive Keldor. I didn't manage to get one at WWC, so I ended up getting one on ebay for around $85 (it was a figure I wasn't willing to live without).

    Sounds like you got a good deal. I had mine on the shelf and one day I came home to find him on the floor and his foot still on the shelf. I started laughing at how ridiculous it was.

    I remember the difficulty getting that Keldor. We were at WWC that year and Gabe and I somehow didn't get picked for the raffle, but Jeremy from Mattel was kind enough to hook the two of us up.

    200X Keldor is one of the few things that I wanted to get 2 of from the line and didn't. I kept mine sealed and would have liked to get a second one to open. I think that it was so hard for most of us just to get 1 that I didn't try that hard to get a second one. Bronze KG is the only item from this line that I'm missing. I'd only get 1 of him since he's not a "character" if you know what I mean. Truth be told, if I never got him, I'd get over it. I'm going to throw a fit if I don't get Adam and Keldor

    I found the A-Team Van this morning to complete my new A-Team collection! Looks like the Horde had a good day for toys!
    I love it when a plan comes together.

    I am 99.9% sure that I am not going to WW. The next couple of months are going to get the wallet pretty hard with MOTUC. Plus I got hit with quite a few comic variant comic covers the last 2 months. And that wasn't even all the variants that I wanted to get. Plus the rumor is that the next series of ML 2 packs are going to hit between August and December

    Hey, Big Brandon and I are going to meet up at the Chilis in Aurora tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon at 3 p.m. He's gonna hook me up with my Tytus and we're gonna chill with a beer or two. Anyone is welcome to join us that wants to.

    just to clarify, this is the Chilli's on Route 59 in the Naperville/Aurora area, not far from the Best Buy Dennis works at. Any horde members who want to join Grant and me are welcome.

    I'lll probably have a couple of extra Tytus figures in my trunk just incase anyone else I got one for shows up, but if you are planning on coming and I got you a figure, please do post here so I will be sure to bring enough.

    I can look up the specific address to the place if anyone needs it.

    Interesting. If the price I right, I'll buy the whole series again.

    Hopefully this means that a complete series release of classic 80s MOTU will come out, too.

    Cautiously optimistic - "Anime style" brings back flashbacks of the 200X MOTU. Let's hope this performs better....
