    Photog is "Almost Gone"

    Just under four hours. I wonder if he'll sell out today.

    Wow ! That's just the proof some people really wanted this figure after waiting more than 20 years for it ! Not bad, for such a basic design ! Personally, I'm happy Toyguru allowed Photog to be made. He righted one of Mattel's wrongs by doing so, and I think it's great !

    I'm wondering if I should order one? I have the 30th sub but with no notification yet I don't know if I trust DR to get me one.

    I'm glad I picked one up. I was going to pass on him but since I got my taxes back this morning I decided to splurge and got him and Panthor. I also picked up a couple of Sorceress figures for a friend...which means I can keep one of them and ship her the one that comes with my sub...since that one will bs delayed a few days.

    He's definitely a cool figure even if a bit off-the-wall. They probably made less of him on top of the 30th subscription amount (similar to the Club Eternia figures), but it's still a good sign that he's almost gone already. I bet Draego-Man will sell out pretty quick.

    I was not saying "basic" in a bad way. But it's true the design is basic : human body with a camera as a head. And a lot of reused parts too. And I agree with Zodack : Photog is an "off-the-wall" figure, but I'm happy to have it in the line. Photog deserved to be done.

    I can't say I'm too surprised about this. Fearless Photog is a figure that many people have wanted for over 25 years. I'm very happy to see he is selling well, and I can't wait to have him as part of my collection.

    Ordered a Photog. Interesting character in the Mattel-MOTU history, and I'm really impressed with how they made him.

    Actually I have two 30th subs, but I'm on the fence as well, since I have not received an email-confirmation for him. Got one for Fisto, Sorceress and Shadow Weaver, but it is still "in progress" ... getting worried ...

    Just ordered one. Been following the Photog story for far too long to pass. Passed on all the other figures though.

    this is kind of like a MOTU ''holy-grail'' for me, a figure i never thought we would ever see ... so i'm glad he's doing well ...

    it's a credit to nathan bitner and also scott neitlich for making this happen ...

    ... Hey guys, I think it's very cool that you got the figure as well, and really all of the credit is to Scott and Mattel. They drove this the whole way; I just had to say, "Yes, I think that's very cool!" I'm really excited to see it made and hope you'll enjoy having him as much as I will!

    Have a good day!

    I'm just teasing.

    This must be a pretty cool day for Nathan. Regardless of out own personal opinion regarding Photog, this release was long overdue. I've got Photog coming with my 30th sub (if it actually eventuates - no renewal or shipping notices yet). I'm keen to see how I feel anout him once he's in hand.
