    Defeat the Orko curse!

    Let this be the day for all those who have been unable to procure Orko to turn the tides of despair. It has now turned into a quest-a quest for triumph!

    He is mine!! Skeletor can eat it!

    I am so happy that I was proved wrong! Orko did not sell out in the first 10 minutes. I am thrilled that fans are able to find him at a decent price today.
    I will predict that he won't last the day though.

    Our goal is to make sure all MOTU collectors can get these new figures.

    Honestly I want another Keldor and Hordak, but I refuse to pay double shipping for them. I already have TPHM and DM from the subs. If I could have added them to my order I would have gotten two more figures.

    Mattel screws themselves out of yet another sale by not allowing us to add additional items to our sub orders.

    Well Scott did make it plain that they would have "plenty of Orkos" today. Maybe they kept a bunch of CS stock initially because of the hideous ear paint problems, and either barely anyone returned theirs or due to the demand are selling the returned ones on the sly?

    I'm convinced it's a second run. NOT one that they just conjured up recently, but I'm sure that the order was made a long time ago considering how fast he sold out the first time. It also explains why Scott was pretty certain that these would stick around longer then the Teelas.

    The Nov. sale was just a few from the first go around, but this one is in all likelihood a "newer" batch. I would defiantly expect to see a burst on these.

    It ended with great success.

    I already have a opened Orko and Prince Adam. My Orko on card has a bit of wear on the edges so I grabbed one for the small chance these might be leftover figures. Fingers crossed! I am sure you are probably right it is a reissue though.

    These past two or three months I've kept my eyes open for an Orko/Adam pack, and was really really surprised to see how expensive they were on the secondary market. I never expected them to be rare or anything...so hopefully this new stock evens things out a little bit so everyone can have an Orko without paying through the nose.

    How did it end up this way? What was the cause of the shortage, if he was sold online AND at SDCC?

    The one sold at SDCC and through the site were two different figures. He became rare since he sold out within I believe an hour during the first go around and other then a few minutes during the Black Friday event hasn't been seen since.

    Not to mention he's one of the most popular characters in the line.

    Would they have fixed the 'bleeding ears' issue ?

    I kinda gave up on Orko(Im not feeding any scalpers) and I was happy to finally add him and Adam to my collection. Now if I can find a SW for a decent price Ill be golden. Also bought Draego Man, didn't really want him but I didn't want to pay shipping for just Orko.

    From what I've seen the ear issue will remain the same. I don't think that *if* we're dealing with another run that they were made far enough down the line to actually correct the issue.


    I will say though that not all Orkos have bleeding ears though in the first place. I've personally run in to a handful that were perfect. It's hit or miss, but defiantly seems more miss.

    I've been wanting an Orko for a long time since I began collecting this line and it was very disappointing when the black friday sale ran out of Orkos so fast. I'm glad I didn't go for the ridiculous Ebay prices, the wait has finally come to a successful ending. Now the wait for King Grayskull begins...

    You're right! Now the wait is for the may reissue... I hope in one of rarest... King Grayskull or Hero
    This day I was literally breathless but in 3 minutes I ordered 2 Orko and 1 Tri-Klops... Only 7 action figures and I'll complete my collection!
