    Yeah. I'm with you. Icon Heroes is a cool company, but I really don't see the appeal of these small scale pieces or office supplies, or whatever they are.
    I think I'm still just salty that I never got that 6" Jackalman.

    The appeal is now Leech will be comic-accurate in his scale in comparison to Icon Heroes GC and TF.

    The appeal is that

    1. Is is nice high end piece.
    2. more affordable than the classics prices.
    3. you can buy it at more places like Amazon with free shipping.
    4. smaller scale. not everyone has room for the classics castle. So for those who want a castle for the bookshelf, this is the one to get. Also not everyone wants a play-set.

    Powersword letter opener is a fun and cool piece.

    - He-Man mini-bust

    And hopefully more!!
    Yep, there will hopefully be quite the MotU presence at the ol' Actionfiguresexpress booth this year. Makes me wish I was going between that, a playable Grayskull playset, and the 4H's Power Lords lineup.

    Hopefully all o' that will also be at Power Con. Well, most of it anyways.

    This. I mean seriously, I know I've said this in other threads, but it's not like I'm going to be playing with the thing either way, so I'd rather spend half the price on a better looking CG, especially if it's being supported with an add on Talon Fighter!

    You can have Castle GS and Snake Mountain for the price of one classic castle and they are a lot more detailed.

    However, these are a LOT smaller as well. They are just shy of a foot tall.

    I wouldn't assume that if Snake Mountain is done, that it would be the same size/height as Grayskull.

    This is great news. Hopefully this is the same for BBTS as well. It's my first buy from that website. So I'll be waiting for a charge to come through first. Honestly I've been looking forward to this MOTU item the most. And the box art is amaze balls.

    They should get their shipment the same time I get my shipment which looks like it will be late next week. My company CC was just charged for my shipment

    Sometimes it's very nice being somewhat close to California...

    My Grayskull looks to arrive Monday! (evening) I suppose keeping in mind, I worked on this and maybe mine was of the first to ship out?

    The box supposedly weighs 8.5 lbs!!! That's a healthy chunk o' Polystone!

    Expect plenty of instagrams.

    Anyone else getting their notices?

    Some email from them about Bif Bang Pow! Anniversary sale, but I'm just as excited to read that as a shipping notice.

    No teasing. So are you saying that every ICON Heroes CG is packaged with your art print? And you signed them all too.

    I pre-ordered mine from BigBadToystore today. I missed out on Mark's pre-order and I have some BBTS store credit, so it worked out quite nicely. Can't wait to get it...and I definitely will get the Filmation base. That looks pretty darn cool so far!
