    The Countdown to King Hiss, Battle Armor Skeletor & the Return of Adora & Count Marzo

    Well, I'm rushing in here this time and this time only, so I can remind international collectors of the beginning of summer time ( = daylight saving(s) time ) in the USA which takes effect at a different time than in some other countries such as all of Europe! So, keep in mind, the sale starts 1 hour earlier than usual for all countries where the time is being changed after the sales date!

    Summer time starts on March 13th in the United States, but on March 27th (!) in Europe. Therefore the MotUC release day in March will start 1 hour earlier than it usually does for us Europeans since our clocks will still be on winter time whereas they're already on summer time in the USA. Overseeing that cost me Moss Man with flocked ears last year - and to the day this guy is missing in my MotUC collection. I don't want that to repeat! Maybe posting this will help some folks - that's why I'm opening the thread a few days earlier than it usually occurs on the .org.


    So, back to usual:

    Here we go again and this time its fan favorites

    King Hiss (King Hssss),

    Battle Armor Skeletor

    and

    the Return of Princess Adora, Count Marzo & Evil-Lyn.



    This link will let you know the time of release:
    http://www.time.gov/timezone.cgi?Eastern/d/-5

    The countdown threads are for us all to talk about the excitement we feel in the lead up to the release of each figure, and a great place to be in the last few hours for moral support!

    Countdown threads close as soon as the figure in Question is released On Matty.com. Its at this point the 'Post' release threads open eg- 'Sum All' 'Successfully ordered', 'Failed to Order' etc.

    Got these bad boys covered in my subs so I won't need to log in but I'm still very excited for them.

    King Hssss is cool. I never had the vintage one and was really dissapointed in the action feature of the 200x version. The Classics version IMO is the best way to execute this and I'm really happy that Mattel and the 4H went that extra mile to give him to us this way.

    BA Skeletor was my favorite version of Skeletor when I was a kid and I have been eagerly awaiting this figure since BA He-Man came out. He's been my most anticipated figure since his SDCC reveal.

    When I saw this thread I worried for a second that I wasn't paying attention to the date and that I had already missed the February figures.

    I can't wait for King Hssss.

    Although I loathe his snake form, the 4H has done wonders with that beautiful headsculpt on his human form. And I hate the sooperhero Hiss...

    I'm not a fan of how his snake form was handled either. I'd almost prefer the human form as a solid figure on its own without the detachable waist and snake form. I will never display him in his snake form so what I'll have is a figure with Darth Maul death scene action feature.

    Soooooooooo excited for both King Hssss and BA Skeletor.

    BA Skeletor was my favorite version of Skeletor as a kid. When the live-action movie came out, I used him as "movie Skeletor" because i thought the armor was close to the look in the movie. Then when Scareglow was released, I added the cape sometimes to make him even closer in look.

    King Hssss was a huge favorite of mine in the vintage line. The 200X version was so different a character, and I disliked that his human form was so scary looking (they missed the point on that one).

    Very excited for these two!

    Sorry, that wasn't my intention. It's meant to help, not to confuse. My appologies.

    While King Hiss is my least favorite of the Snake Men design-wise ( excluding snake face I guess) I am so thrilled to have Snake Men trickling in that Hiss is my most anticipated release of the year.

    This line just keeps getting better. I am really looking forward to both of these figures. I love the BA Skeletor and I am very curious to see how Hsss turns out.

    I'm shocked they are re-issuing Marzo. There are people in the Marketplace trying to sell them for UNDER cost with no buyers. I can't believe there is enough demand for another run.

    The prototypes snake form did look a bit disappointing, but I want to see how well the finished figure turned out before I dismiss it completely. There's a chance that with the proper posing the bendy snakes might make it look a bit better.

    His human form does look excellent though, I agree.

    I never thought I'd be excited for a Snake Men toy let alone King Hiss. Other than him missing the second "i" in his name, I find this MOTUC version perfect. I also can't wait for Battle Armor Skeletor. That means we're one variant closer to Dragon Blaster Skeletor(then they can slow down on the variants).

    Is it definitely a reissue and not just Matty selling off leftover backstock like they did with The Goddess & Zodac?
