    Depends on how you feel about soft goods. Ideally it'd be nice to have both.

    February will indeed be awesome.

    Any idea when King He-Man will ship? Going by the past, it will be in February or March.

    We haven't heard anything about King He-Man's ship date, so I'm leaning toward a March ship date with Fang Man.

    I like her current cape for display, but nothing wrong with getting some other nets for function. The vintage looks too wrinkly for my tastes. I'm not into it at all.

    Lol, didn't want to create some kind of argument here. Just found it funny the first weapon thought of for her was a spear. :P FWIW, it does look good with her.

    Blame me. I guess I'm the racist lol.

    I thought of her as a huntress and I've said so here (a while back) and said so on RGD, suggesting she should have a crossbow or a spear because she's a huntress.

    It's funny, it never once crossed my mind that suggesting a spear was somehow racist. It had ZERO to do with her being dark-skinned and 100% to do with her being a trapper who hunts.

    Just my bad, I guess

    It's not racist. I didn't even think of her race (of blue haired women) when coming up with the idea of a spear.

    I was specifically inspired by this. She has realistic hunting abilities and accuracy.

    http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...%2Fnetossa.asp

    Her prime ability is one of the more realistic powers expressed in the series. No magical aid or mythical source allowed her to throw nets strapped to her back - that was all her own work, putting her on a par, skill-wise, with Bow. She captured a moving Catra after being thrown by She-Ra, and a threatening Horde Trooper - her precision is shown by the fact that she threw this particular net through the bars on her cell-door!

    Wow! The most amazing thing ever just happened! Netossa just arrived here in Germany today! Only two days afther I got my shipping confirmation from Mattel!
    The reason for the incredibale fast shipping seems to be DHL, which I chose as shipping option when I ordered. I didn't have to bother with the customs office but had to pay the customs duty directly to DHL (I had to give it cash to the postman), which is probably part of the reason why this went so fast.
    Choosing DHL definitely was the right decision, gone are the days of four-five weeks of waiting for figures, gone are the days where I had to spend hours waiting at the customs office. And you actually get a tracking number for international shipping as well!
    This is just awesome and I'm really, really, happy right now!

    (still waiting for Granamyr, though, who was sent with international post and not with DHL)
    Awesome sticker included!

    Ive used UPS the last couple of years and always had to pay tax. Today.. no tax!! DHL guy said I *might* have got away with it as he should have had paperwork, but none was given. But I might get a bill in the post so I have to wait and see. But yes this does seem faster than UPS was, which is a big surprise. I was expecting them to take longer.
    What next? It seems every month lately there is something..

    Mine just arrived minutes ago! I'm totally glad I switched from Cornerstone Logistics to UPS shipping. The right knee joint is a bit loose, but other than that I'm very impressed. No major plaint flubs and the black circle on the cape is hardly noticeable. The cape seems far more durable than Leech's net.

    Same thing here re: Netossa! (and hopefully the rest of the year too)! I'm stunned at how quick Netossa got to Melbourne (minus the customs fees). Here's hoping she gets delivered today or tomorrow!

    Shame you're still waiting on Granamyr, i used fast shipping for this guy and he got here quick too.

    This is kind of hilarious. $15.10 UPS shipping for 2 Netossa figures, and I don't receive her until Thursday lol - and I'm in NYC.

    I'm glad you guys all received her so quickly though - I know usually you guys always have to wait FOREVER!

    Thanks for posting this. I didn't think I was being racist. I just don't think about that kind of thing when it comes to motuc.

    My mate who ordered our subs in Australia just received shipment of Netossa. That is crazy fast (and first time a figure has been here, for me, before it was released on site). Super happy with the DHL shipping being offered this year for international customers.

    Can't wait until next month's pot of gold!!

    We've posted photos of our Netossa review sample. Our sample does have the "shaded" spot on the cape. She photographs very well and has an improved, more feminine face sculpt than Frosta.

    I think so. At least I hope so because I am planning on doing the same thing but with white, blue, & silver. The color distribution and where to put the details has been tricky to decide. Still have plenty of time to think though.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.
