    Only sometimes tho... except when you have to drive somewhere, or pay taxes, or when a hurricane comes, or when the Jersey Shore cast lives down the street from your Summer home (That was destroyed in aforementioned storm)... ummm my list can go on and on! But yea our figures take forever to get here as well!

    Cool pics, thanks for sharing.

    Anyway. I can only lol at the Americans here. "Sparks Nevada", lol. Try having your stuff sent overseas and back, and then complain.
    I still don't have a shipping confirmation, so it'll be about a month before I get these guys since it will go off to Sweden. But when I do get them, this is going to be awesome.

    Is it just me or does Ram-Man's packaging look unnecessarily too big?

    Oh I know they were going for the cardback art. For me the card art in MOTU never stood out, not on the figure cards anyway. When I think of cardart the first thing I think of is G.I. Joe, that was amazing cardart on the front. I also get that there are those like yourself who want this look for Rammy, but since he got a second head it would have been nice if it was another helmeted head with his eyes open looking more dimwitted.

    Oh yeah, I totally see your point there. That second unhelmeted head is probably not going to be used by anybody, just based on what I've read from fans. It would have been a much better idea to gear that one towards the other audience such as yourself that wanted a Filmation-esque dim-witted Rammy.

    Also, yeah, the GI Joe card art is probably more of what should be, in theory, called card art. But man, my earliest memories and nostalgia for this brand (and as toys as a whole) comes from just analyzing those little pictures on the back of the card. I would wake up and stare at them while eating my breakfast...and I would fall asleep at night with the card in my dirty little hand, haha. So getting them finally materialized is just awesome for me.

    I thought the same thing when I opened the shipping box. Than when you get him out of his bubble it really seems oversized.

    It has has always been Filmation for me with MOTU. But I know what you mean, I use to be that way with the G.I. Joe cardbacks, I'd color in the white boarder around the image of the ones I wanted.

    I will say that I find their faces to be the thing I like the least, especially Ram Man. You can tell from the BattleDerpy photo what I think his face looks like.
    Rammy is a lovable dimwitted character his face needed to look more like this.



    I'd also like him to be shorter but that doesn't bother me as much as his face does.
    UGH no way! Filmation Ram Man is the worst incarnation of this awesome character. Give em the DC mini comics version any day!

    I cant believe the garbage that I get from my tracking info....My figures go from Cali to friggin INDIANA to come back down to me in TEXAS!! I wonder why the postal system is over budget?....you simply cannot tell me there is no shipping route across the main hubs of the south, which would be Cali, Tx, and Florida. Why does it go all the way up by Michigan to come back down here? Really?!?

    i didnt remember what shipping i bought. i think usps even tho on DOS i always bought ups.
    the DR shipping is an abomination except on black friday it was terrific. i dont get it.

    and i really wish they went with the card art/cross sell/mini comic colors. i really dont like the red/green christmas combo

    Received the figures today (CA) and I have to say that Ram Man is Massive. I couldn't believe how heavy he was compared to the other figures. Well worth the extra $5!!
    Contact me if you have MOTU Merchandise Items for sale or trade! Please view a sampling of what I am looking for Here:

    I'm hoping Ram-Man is worth the wait because I need something to get me back into this line.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

    I thought we already established that Mattel (in California) ships the figs to Digital River (In Sparks, Nevada) where they get tracking numbers and head out across the country/world.?.?

    Or was this debunked?

    Either way, the sub-holder who has a Rammy for me should be receiving him this or next week! Can't wait to get him after a 2nd shipment! WOO-HOO!
    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!.
