    Nice haul! Merry Christmas to you!
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Ha, yeah. I'm a lucky guy! Even more so, since she let me open them all last night! We're leaving the mailers under the tree, though.

    I may just! I'm hearing a lot about 3D Printing! If it's not too pricy, I might do us in 1:6 scale and MOTU scale, heh heh.

    Received my Wednesday Nov. 21st order last Friday, but my other 4 orders from Monday, Nov. 26th are rotting away in Elizabeth NJ for days now, since Sunday. Just a little bit frustrating.

    Box #1 of 2 arrived today, but instead of Icarius I managed to get a BG Lyn taped into an Icarius whitebox. I'm debating whether or not it's worth the hassle to try and return her or maybe just keep her.

    My brother had a different figure in one of his boxes too. Tch, Matty...

    That, to me, was always the scariest thing about the people who leave them in the white boxes. Who knows what you actually have in there! I remember at PowerCon 2011 a dealer sold someone a Hordak but there was another (less rare, at the time) figure inside. I don't think it happens often, but it clearly does from time to time.

    Because they seem to be from the first run and at that time the mailers didn't exist yet (if I recall correctly).

    Yeah, my Hordak was sans mailer. I thought that was kind of odd.
    As for mix ups, I admit I was a little disappointed that none of the many many figures I ordered turned out to be a Shadow Weaver, lol.

    I placed one order on Wednesday, three on Monday. All have shipped except one Monday order that contains the Sorceress.
    My TOD Sorceress still hasn't been shipped and no word from anyone.
    Says still in process

    ToD Sorceress came in today! Her tail wing is a little warped, but outside of that she looks great! Yesterday my 2 additional Palace Guards came and another Trap Jaw which I will be displaying as Kronis. All in all, I ordered 12 figures, so that was a a great sale to help me get caught up. Only figs left that I'm really interested in are Scare Glow and Shadow Weaver.

    Shipments #3 and 4 arrived today (still waiting on TOD Sorceress), quickly following yesterday's arrival of #1.

    Some quick thoughts:

    Catra - man, you guys weren't kidding about that gummy hand.

    Adora - pretty nice sculpt, nothing truly outstanding good or bad.

    Faker - having the darndest time getting him to stand. That weird pose they had him in in-package warped his legs slightly. I'll have to work on that.

    Hurrcane Hordak, Webstor and Clawful - not big on HH (never was a variant fan), but he looks nice enough. Love the other two. Reason I'm lumping these three together: all three of their furry loincloths seem to be slightly, uhm, now sure how to put this. It looks like a breeze came through the room and sent the fur sideways. All three are a gust away from showing off their bits and tackle. Not TOO noticeable, but odd.

    Bubble Power She-Ra - an 'eh' variant. I fully understand and even support the Classic-izing of her original accessories, but they just don't work for me.

    Wind Raider - never was big on the vehicles, but this...this is nice.

    Panthor and Swiftwind - fantastic sculpts on both. Had a heck of a time getting those wings in though.

    Mighty Spector - Gotta be honest, he looks right at home on the shelf.

    Eternian Palace Guards - Never was a big army builder guy, and not a huge fan of nameless characters. Nice sculpts though.

    Draego-Man - holy mother, this one's beautiful. And heavy.

    Leech - Came with an extremely loose ankle, but thankfully the design of his feet helps support him. I don't mind the wide body, gives him more of an inhuman feel.

    Battleground Evil-Lyn - love the colors even more now that she's in hand.

    Battleground Teela - Probably the only DC Comics-era figure we'll get and she does certainly look unique on the shelf.

    Faceless One - I've already dropped him about ten times...somehow I keep forgetting his armor/cape-piece is only loosely fitting on him and keep trying to pick him up by it.

    Chief Carnivus - another great sculpt, not much else to comment on

    Snout Spout and Sy-Klone - two of my least favorite vintage figures, they're okay here.

    Vykron - LOVE the tank-man version. Haven't even had a chance to test out the other two versions.

    Fearless Photog - finally, after two and a half decades, he's in my hands!!!
    MOTUC Wishlist Dylamug, Songster, Evil Robot, Tuvar and Badra, Game Master, Grayskull Robot, Lizard Man, Karg, Prahvus, Skelcon(s), the new villains from He-Ro/Dare

    Quick tip: I used one of the clear rubber-bands the figs come with (about the size of the top of a soda can when not stretched) and hooked it under one armpit, guided it through the shoulder slit on the armor, around the back, through the other shoulder slit, and hooked it under his other armpit. you can only see about 1/2 inch of the rubber-band on the back of the armor, but it keeps it on him nicely and I can fidgit with him easily enough to get good poses. LMK if you like that idea.

    as for my 2 figs. I received them both today (Trap-Jaw and Stratos). I'll take a "family photo" of my whole collection very soon (about 20 figs since I started in late August). I love the Trap Jaw fig and want the black Roboto parts (weapons pack) for him badly now. Stratos is very cool but I gotta fix the wing attachments on his wrists. The fact they are stuck in place bugs the crud outta me!

    BTW, not sure if it matters, but Stratos arrived in an unmarked (no name) white mailer, but the fig had "The Original" burst on it. I assume they all came that way?
    Take it easy,
    Drew

    Looking for: deals on MOTUC Roboto, King He-Man, Meckaneck, Zoar (from Sorceress) and more!
    Have to trade: A couple MOTU vintage, GIJOE (vintage 3.75 inch and 25th Anniversary figures and vehicles), Star Wars, Transformers (movie line), and Marvel Universe and a few Marvel Legends, plus MORE!.
