    It might help to find out what email clients people are using. See if there is a common one not working. I find it strange that having a 30th sub would conflict seeing as they would have catalogued the emails from the 2012 sub earlier than that.

    I only have the regular sub and I haven't gotten the e-mail yet. Didn't get the Mekaneck one either. It's not really a huge deal, but my fear is that this issue will never be fixed, and Mattel might offer some kind of coupon/e-mail offer to subscribers sometime this year. If not everyone is receiving these, who can say it won't be the same with something like that, too?

    DB Skeletor looks decent enough. I was secretly holding out hope for Terror Claws, the real best Skeletor variant, but at least this is better than SMAA.

    If this was the original, I agree the silly sauce was applied a little to thick to the new head sculpt of the dragon. HE looks as though The 4 Horsemen were going for more of a dog/pet look on this sculpt? Maybe once he is detached from Skeletor's back and posed by himself he will have more appeal. I used to love the silliness i.e. Clawful's head sculpt, Snout Spout's general look, Tri-Clops's Blue Eye, etc. What has happened?!

    HUGE WIN! He looks awesome. I'm hoping he comes with a second dragon head (open mouthed) and one of Draego Man's accessories!

    Terrific job, Scott!

    I just read the "Skeletor's Dragon" comic for the first time. It was pretty good, considering the part of the vintage era it came from, lol. I'm a bit more sold on this variant now, especially considering how good it looks. He'll look even better with the Alcala head.

    The comic was also my first real exposure to the TWIYPITTOW or whatever, lol.

    I think he looks pretty great! And I don't mind the closed mouth; I would like to see the dragon separated from the backpack before I can fully judge him. Skeletor's armor does look pretty great.

    I'd say maybe the dragon bit him and infected him?

    No. I haven't received them either, and have both subs. But I don't really mind since I always come to the org first anyway for new news.

    Man....I have been waiting for this info, and I just now could get to the computer.....

    I never had him, but I'll tell you what, I want him now....perfect match for my TP He-Man, to have them both.

    So far I see nothing wrong with him, the Whiplash forearms & Khan boots look nice actually, and I am glad they used the slatted loin cloth on him. Now this is a variant I will have no issues with, between TP He-Man & DB Skeletor, I can see now why SMAA had nothing new....sucks SMAA comes with the 2nd comic instead of being a bonus or 4th variant, but it does make it more bearable, I just hope the 4th variant is worth it too.

    But I do like what I see, and am glad it was him, and he's another I may get an extra of, for the Alcala head I have....right now the Mo-Larr Skeletor is wearing it.
    Recent....Unnamed One & Hydron
    Coming....
    Wanted....Entrapa, Double Trouble, Light Hope, Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

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

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

    i don't want to raise any conspiracy theories, but do we know if the 4HM designed the dragon at all? maybe some guys at Mattel design some figures themselves (for cost saving) and the 4HM just sculpt them. i mean, Dragoe Man looks great and this little dragon is meant to look ferocious. even the vintage toy looked more menacing...

    The Dragon's head looks oddly simplified, I'm hoping there is a functionality reason for this. The open mouth on the vintage package illustration is even better than this look.

    Arms and shins are interesting but I wish they would have stuck with the plain black furry trunks like the vintage figure.

    If the dragon was not going to squirt water, could it not have been more fearsome looking?

    I have multiple subscriptions for both Club Eternia and the 30th Anniversary line and I DID receive both the Mekaneck and Dragon Blaster Skeletor emails. So that shouldn't be the problem.

    I think DB Skeletor looks amazing!! Even though the Dragon head looks a bit different than the vintage one, I still like the look of it. Now bring on Terror Claws Skeletor!!

    As adults, I think many of us realize these things look goofy now. But for me, I love the nostalgia trip. MOTUC has been that since day 1, so I'm happy. Keep the cooler looking stuff for new figures like they did with Draego-Man or the Griffin.

    Maybe his name is Dan. That would be cool for both of us.

    This makes me happy; it will compete my most wanted Skeletor variants! I wonder if the dragon will be removable to become separate piece?

    i guess what some people complain about is that the vintage head looked far less goofy. if the new one just looked like the old one (open mouth, accurate teeth), i would be ok with it. but knowing what the 4HM can do, they could have made a great, menacing little dragon instead of this tooth fairy's pet.
