Mine shipped on Saturday, although it hasn't moved yet. : /
Just got home from work to find my subscription Mekaneck, DB Skeletor and Snakemen two pack arrived! Glad to see them since I had not received any shipping notice from Matty this month (like many). Pics will come but it's late and I've got to get up early for work. Quick thoughts:
Love Mekaneck - so classic and perfect. Yes, as PixelDan's video showed, his big triangle eye helmet thing seems like it should have been a little lower but it's ok - nothing I think I would have noticed had PD not pointed it out!!
DB Skeletor - not a fan of variants - never have been BUT I love that I do finally have a classic toy Skeletor now by swapping the original armor and head onto the DB Skeletor buck. Feels right and I'll be keeping this version on display. ALSO - the final mini comic! WOW - it's good. ARE YOU READY FOR SPOILERS? DON'T READ FURTHER if NOT!
The comic is cool -So much more but it is pretty cool - LOTS of eye candy!
Snakemen two pack - very cool. Love the parts and options but I won't be displaying them - wouldn't have bought them as I'm not really into army packs or generalized figures. The Rattlor sculpt is freaking cool though!
Ok, nuff for now
I hope I get my shipment today, it shipped on 9/15 and it usually takes 4 days to arrive. First thing I'm going to do is check for QC issues and I hope I don't have to "take the black" (a little Game of Thrones humor Lol) Then I'm fixing Mek's helmet and see if I can add the yellow snake man head on King Hsss's snake form with a little slice and dice action.
My subscription Items Shipped out Yesterday Got The shipping email this morning will have them delivered by UPS on Tuesday
Mine is in California for the second time. From Sacramento to Sparks, Nevada to Ontario Canada.......never ending road trip I guess. THis is my only complaint with Matty really...shipping just takes so long to get here.
Just arrived today. The Snake Men are looking great. The orange one does have black plastic limbs but the paint apps on mine are solid. The other one is molded in yellow, which is a great sign. The only flaw on them is the paint rub on their hands from the weapons. The paint really just peels off :/
Mekaneck is also a great figure, no paint flaws on mine. After inspection, it looks like the helmet will be more difficult to remove as I dont want to scratch the paint off. Spikor's lazy eye was way more of an annoyance than this.
DB Skeletor looks good too. The dragon still looks goofy on hand as he did in the pics, which I don't like. My Skelly chipped at the shoulder/bicep point upon the first twist. I'll add some pics to the QC black plastic issues later. Least favorite of today's shipment.
Well since I don't even have SLL here in Canada yet, ask me in 2 months how I like the new Snake Men, Mek, and DB Skelly. Mine haven't even shipped yet.
cant wait for that comic

This is the variant I was least looking forward to due to the closed mouth of the dragon and no fire feature, unlike the added thunder punch effect with TP He-Man, but you know what? He pops in person. The colors are really nice and the Khan boots are awesome.
However, I have other plans for him. The dragon head will be a new dragon character and the armor will be lost to create a hybrid Vintage Alcala Skeletor.
The figure as is - Not bad
Now with the Alcala effect!
Draego Man's brother - Drogon
Vintage Alcala style
The Alcala head on the DB Skeletor body looks great.
My seller/trader/buyer feedback:
MOTUC Most Wanted: 1) Stridor 2) Roton 3) Karg 4) Lodar 5) Mask of Power Demons 6) Road Ripper 7) Vintage Fright Zone 12) Dragon Walker
Probably one of the least interesting Vintage characters for me, I was hoping he'd take forever to come out. But he came out looking great. The colors are awesome and the neck attachments make him a home run. This is what Dragon Blaster Skeletor needed, something to push his one gimmick.
The placement of the helmet doesn't bother me. It does look a little off, but not as bad as I've seen in reviews. Either I got lucky or I'm just not seeing it as much on mine.
I really like these, but I don't think I want more than two sets. They're great to fill out the ranks while the other three core members wait, but it's those core members that matter more to me than the army.
The cool thing is the four heads are similar in color enough for you to use them on any body, more options. Wish the weapons weren't in hand while packaged, really outstretched the grips. The weapons themselves are pretty awesome.
That Slush-Khan would look great with the blue snake man armor.
Your Pictures are awesome as usual SCB. Vintage alcala is better than I thought. Too bad about whats inside him. I'm glad you think the Dragon head "POPS" in hand. I don't think I will ever like it though. Is this real?
Great pics, SCB - thanks for taking all of those
The Mekaneck one where he's wearing the medal on the extended neck is hilarious.
A Want List of Sorts: Filmation Tung Lasher, Roton, Skelcon, POP costume She-Ra / Starburst She-Ra, Lodar, and all the other POP, Filmation, & NA characters.
Yes, the yellow hands are molded in that color. Mekaneck, however, has painted limbs - his shoulders down to his hands and hip joints down to his feet (minus the ankle joint). Mine received an excellent paint job which I'll have to take care of to keep it good.Originally Posted by Trans22:3122095
Also the red button from Stinkor's armor does fit well on Mek's back, looks much better that way.
Interesting that Skeletor's sword doesn't have black on the handle.
Those swords on Draego Man are awesome - much better than what we got.
I just got my stuff today.
Mek....was very excited to get him. I displayed him with the shorter neck extension. I did have to tie a rubber band around the ball to prevent the bobble head problem. His head now sits still on the extension.
Dragon Blaster Skeletor is cool. Since this is supposed to be the "amped up" Skeletor when he took over Eternia, I put the Alcala head on him. He looks ******* crazy with it. I also gave him the Faceless One's red glowing Havok Staff. Looks great battling Thunder Punch He-Man in front of Grayskull.
The Snake Men are AWESOME! I went ahead and opened my two packs of them and displayed all four in various versions. I will have to get another set to be MOC. Oh well, that's what Christmas is for!
About to read the minicomic. Sorta saddened it was bent up a bit in the package. No biggie since it won't have a value anyway.
Very nice month for MOTUC! Can't wait for FROSTA month!
