    I've Recieved...(Post here if you've received your December 15th order(s)

    YAY - The Goddess is FINALLY mine I ordered yesterday, next day air and for the first time in a while, no routing issues and literally here the next day!

    Still no shipping confirmation on my subscription Randor though

    Anyway, back to The Goddess - she is AMAZING, love the translucent skin!

    Congrats on being one of the first to get her.

    I'm dying to know something if you don't mind me asking. Is the extra He-Man armor painted gray or cast in gray plastic. I'll find out on my own in about a week but I just really want to know.

    It's cast in gray, I just took scissors to the back side of the armor and scratched deep - all gray

    Thanks for the answer. Though I wasn't expecting you to deface your armor just to answer the question. I'm looking forward to getting all 3 figures. But getting the He-Man armor in gray plastic is an extra bonus I was hoping for but not entirely expecting.

    lol - no worries, the armor is fine. I think I may just switch it out for the armor currently on He-Man as the paint application seems to be a bit nicer on the Goddess one. It also may be a tad lighter gray when compared. I'll check when I get home

    LOL and here I haven't even recieved a shipment notice yet. Not to derail the thread, but anyone who successfully ordered a Skeletor get their shipment notice yet?

    I'm quite looking forward to Skeletor and The Goddess.
    Matty, Great Black Wizard figure please!

    Awesome. Congrats gang!

    Oh, and I did get my Randor shipping confirmation!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Both the Goddess and Randor arrived today. (Randor via subscription.)

    I'm absolutely happy with these two. Is it just me, or have the past few months yielded figures of a substantially higher quality than the earlier months? I'm noticing what appears to be a higher grade plastic and tighter joints.

    I almost wasn't going to order the Goddess. I am now very happy that I did.

    Randor is excellent as well.

    Good to be a MotU fan.

    By the way, can someone explain to me, being a non-visual person what difference it makes with the armor being cast in gray plastic? Was the He-Man figure cast in red and painted gray then?

    Received both this morning via Standard UPS.

    Randor looks awesome in person. I was doubting him from the online pics but in person he kicks A$$!
    Goddess is great too. I love the semi transparent "spirit" look.

    Well, now that I'm home I'm comparing my re-issue He-Man's armor to the one provided with The Goddess and can confirm it's actually noticeably lighter gray. It now is as light as the handle on the power sword. The new lighter armor looks better imo and makes the red really pop much more.

    Here's a quick pic - it's more noticeable in person though

    Wow. That He-Man armor that comes with Goddess looks way better IMO. And some people thought it was just going to be a waste of plastic. I can't wait to get that armor on my reissue He-Man.

    Oh, and Goddess looks great too.

    I received confirmations on both Randor and Goddess now, but not the figures themselves as yet. Not optimal, of course, but better than the Teela debacle. I'm willing to forgive Mattel and Digital River this little lapse in inefficiency.

    What the hell do you people do to get them to ship out your stuff on the same day? I mean seriously. It takes them anywhere from 6-11 days to ship out my order.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Can someone please post detail pics of the re-issue Skeletor as well as comparison pics of his face. Toyguru said that they updated the paint on it. I wonder how that looks compared to the first version. Thank you.

    p.s. + please also post other noticeable changes made.

    I'll definitely do it as soon as I get mine.
    Someone may beat me to it, but I'll still take a few for everyone.

    I think it's because it's cheaper for them to use the same color plastic for certain parts and then just paint them the desired color. He-Man's hair and armor seem to be made of the same soft brown plastic as his loincloth, but painted yellow & gray respectively.

    However, the parts made of a harder plastic (like the main body and weapons) are cast in the proper colors. He-Man's body is fleshtone plastic, not red plastic painted in skin tones.

    Cool. This should hopefully make The Goddess even more in demand. If you haven't already bought one, please consider doing so.
