    No sign of Masque's new colors either...
    Press down on dragon's head. It sprays enemies with a jet of water!
    Press down on a camera's shutter release. It will take pictures that tell stories!

    Is a picture of him in the e-mail? I'm not a direct subscriber on MattyCollector any more, therefore I didn't get the e-mail myself.

    I'm thinking that King Hsss will probably show up for sale either at the end of the month OR he will be postponed to February.
    I have finally returned from Despondos.

    Yeah we know SLC posted in October he was pushed back to January, but lets face it china royaly screwed up on the Hiss Torso so to correct this they now had to retool a brand new mold for it to get rid of the China stamp in the middle of his chest, also they glued the main snake head on when the Horsemen designed it to have a pivot point so it can turn left to right and now china has to have a mold that allows a pivot point joint. It also needed a larger package as it looked tightly crammed into a basic package. All this could have delayed the figure to February.

    Mattel needs to speak up though and let us know whats going on.
    Looking forward to a very bright 2016 with MOTUC Collectors Choice, He-Man and the Masters Of the Universe animated Filmation line, Thundercats & SNAKE MOUNTAIN

    I was hoping they'd put the Talon Fighter back up.

    Well, $30 for him and what...$11.59 for shipping? Um...what?

    I think these shipping charges from DR need to be in check like now, for what you get and how long it takes, it's a ridiculous price, and it's never been addressed. And $30 for him? WTF is that deal about?
    Recent.... Perfuma
    Coming....
    Wanted.... Masque, Crita & Vultak
    Considering....
    Needed.... Dragstor & the new Filmation line.

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Check here for my My collection page, MOTU and more!

    I'm pretty sure I'm done paying $12 for shipping that takes 7+ days. I'm teetering on the fence for the Thundercats sub, but I'm just tired of waiting so...flippin...long for these to show. And with resale values not exactly exploding on the secondary market, I feel like it's just not worth it to deal with it anymore.

    That's what we deserve for being too critic toward the bios!

    But I think is a good thing!

    And after all we have 5 important things to know about the figure now. I find really nice!

    I do feel excited and expectant when waiting for shipments. Though I may feel impatient on how long they take it's not like I need them at any particular time. I'm just being impatient because I am excited. Things taking too long to get to me isnt a reason to stop collecting.

    The price does seem rather high for how slow they go and the size of the box. One of the things I do in my job is shipping, both through UPS & USPS (United States Post) and from experience the price and delivery times seem off by a bit. I do not know the mitigating circumstances, and I am certain there are some but I at least sympathise with the confusion and impatiens.

    Still surprised when someone who is a fan of something would rather have none than some because of mitigating circumstances.

    I really want Serpentine King Hssss. I want him now, I want him yesterday, but so what? I will still want him in March if that is what it takes. What would tick me off is if it never came, got canceled.

    So with Masque, good, take all the time you need to get it right or better. I was fine with the original version but if the new one is better, great. Even if it were exactly the same, so what, I have to wait? Whatever, I'll have it.

    What I do miss is bios. That sucks/hurts because I really liked them. Loved the story world they were creating. Of course the official MOTUC Line is done and this is different thing, kinda not really, but it's fine. I'd rather have more figures than not.

    Obviously, the last one is a joke, but listing his aliases and the fact that he was an associate of Count Marzo makes my brain glitch. Lol. I've already worked those ideas into my own canon, but now I really want to know the ideas behind those "facts". I kind of feel that if they aren't going to give us bios, they shouldn't taunt us with scraps that they aren't going to finish. Lol.
    Some remaining, post 2016-Reveals, WANTS:
    Kittrina, Garth, Master Sebrian, Lodar, Garn, Meliac, Sagitar, Melog, Spirit of Evil, Slime Pit He-Man, Artilla, Drissi, Caz, Grot, Melaktha, Granita, Lady Slither, Dylamug, Scrollos, Hunga, Rajar, Bubblor, Songster, Red Beast, Zed, Horde Mummy, Quakke, NA Sorceress, Staghorn, Col. Blast...and hoping to someday see a Fright Zone with Slime Pit!
