    I got my figures last week but wasn't able to take pics until today. I got Rattlor, Cy-Chop, Frosta, and the Weapons Pack and they all came in great shape. All the paint decos are good, my Keldor swords come apart, and I'm probably one of the few that can look past Frosta's flaws. I was going to swap her arms but after seeing her in person, I didn't think it was worth the effort. I can't tell that they're reversed and it looks no different than Teela and Evil Lyn's forearms. I considered getting a second Frosta to repaint/correct but I'm glad I didn't.



    Rattlor is a great figure that brings back childhood memories. He was one of the few Snake Men that I had as a kid and I prefer to see him without the general armor.



    I'm still on the fence about Cy-Chop. He's slowly growing on me so I don't regret adding him to my cart at the last-minute. I still consider him the weakest figure of the lot, though.



    The Weapons Pack is a nice set and I had fun mixing the pieces around...











    Overall, a good month's worth of figures!

    I'm right there with you, but I did have to fix a really loose knee she had out of the package, and her other knee was actually a tiny bit glued, and I had to heat her up and pry it loose....weird....But she is a very nicely sculpted figure, sure the white could be whiter, maybe switch to Clorox next washing or something....but overall, my favorite female in the line. Sorceress would have that honor, but her wing drums knock her to 3rd.

    But I did the forearm swap, and was relatively easy, but I also do customs. To me it was very noticeable, and I don't like Teela & EL's bracelets looking reversed either, even though I know they are correct, they just don't look right to me, but nothing I can do to them, because I am not cutting them apart seeing as how they are the only ones I have, small mods, but nothing like that, if I had extras, maybe, but now, no.

    Got Frosta and Rattlor, plus the weapons pack.

    Weapons: Keldor sword splits, but the back of each part with the huge pegs/holes looks really bad; I may leave Keldor with the much better designed 200X swords. The rest of the new weapons are great. Only bloopers among the re-hashes are the Teela armor and green club; they are way too close to the originals to reallt be anything but spares. I like the Clawful shield this way, and will likely save it fro Dekker.

    Frosta: Wow, that gray is really, REALLY gray; there's no way anyone would interpret it as being white. The saving grace there is that it has a slight blue-ish tint to it that blends with the rest of the figure, but it's definitely a major change from either the Filmation or toy version. The arm switch at the shoulder and hands was quick and easy (upper arms look fine switched, so there is no reason to switch at the elbows). The back of the torso not being painted makes her look like a Chap Mei dollar store toy. And the white joint at the hips under the skirt really shows badly if you try to put her in a pose with her hip thrust to one side. It's great to have the old hip joint there to allow for that pose, but it would have looked a LOT better if the ball joint matched the thigh. The sculpt is top notch, and this could have been a "blow you completely away" figure, but Mattel's corner cutting and inexplicable graying of the white areas (I don't see an blastic on her, even the hands, to account for that) here really brings down a great figure. And having to fix a brand new figure like I did leaves a further bad taste in my mouth. Worse still is that Frosta has topped my list of wanted figures since the line started, and the Horsemen delivered on her as I'd hoped; it was Mattel that dropped the ball badly on the production end. I got an extra knowing the problems and will likely try to re-do her right.

    Rattlor: Great figure, with none of the problems of Frosta. They got everything right here, and the neck works quite well as an extra piece. The furry underwear is nice and flexible, so he can assume a nice squat as his head strikes. The only funky thing is the blue disc part of the shoulder joint; it looks odd under the arm, but I understand the need for it as it would look really bad if it wasn't blue on the outer shoulder. Painting the part underneath likely would scrape off easily, so it's something I don't hold against the figure or Mattel.

    So it is a pretty good haul, but the bungling on Frosta at the design and production end is very aggravating. Mattel still has the uncanny ability to snatch defeat from the mouth of resounding victory.

    Sorry if I'm totally behind, but I hadn't heard anything about this: did anyone else get a new sticker sheet with their Rattlor?

    Everybody got one, Balthus D. That's if you're talking about the one with the Great Rebellion stickers (and 1 Time Agents sticker). Well, let me back up. Everybody should have got one with Rattlor.

    I mentioned this before when the card backs were first revealed, but no one said anything....

    Ever notice how Rattlor is missing from his own card back? Snake Men, but no Rattlor.....

    Got my Cy-Chop today. Unfortunately, there was glue drops on the front of the chest, inside the figure. I will be sending him back for a new one.

    The Matty order page says only subscribers got the sticker sheet. Did they go to everybody or just subscribers?

    Just subscribers, I think. My order was a DOS one and I didn't get the sticker sheet with my Rattlor.

    Well, that's a good question then. I got my Rattlor from BBTS so I'm assuming they subscribed from Matty to procure their supply. So it is possible that people who bought their Rattlors from Matty on the sale day didn't get a sticker sheet.

    BBTS does take out the subs (thus the sticker sheet I got with Rattlor); I don't know if they supplement that with DOS purchases after the fact.

    Got my Cy-Chop from BBTS, and I have to say he's growing on me considerably. THe Frankensteined nature of the figure hearkens back to the filler waves in the original line, and I can honestly see something like Chopper here being in one of those waves. He does fit in quite well with the Horde (given such members as Dragstor). I'm liking him in hand more than I expected to; he's not on the level of Draego or Grayskullman, but he's a good, fun figure (although how those hugely oversized scissors don't qualify as "hyper anime detail" is beyond me).

    Finally received my figures today, love Frosta and Rattlor. That extended neck somehow slipped by me, so I was quite surprised when I opened the package. Don't feel anything for Cy-Chop though

    I have just received Rattlor and the weapons pack yesterday. Rattlor is AWESOME. I feel a bit disappointed about the MAA arm cannon, it is cool but is way too heavy. The horde armband is now with Snout Spout, yes! I returned him to his creator!

    Finally got around to opening my Frosta today. Wow the white bits do look really grey in hand, the pictures online really don't pick up just how grey she's turned out, think I might have to attempt to repaint mine its that grey. On the positive side I think the face and hair look a lot better in hand, so its just the forearms and white paint I need to fix
