    Did Power-Con attendees receive their figures?

    What's going on with the Power-Con exclusives? I assume us non-attendees will be waiting a few weeks but what about the attendees? Did you guys pick them up at the con?

    I haven't seen any reviews, pics, or complaints about them. In fact, I completely forgot they existed until I was trying to work out what I have on pre-order and realised the forums have been a little quiet on these.

    It has been quiet. I did find some quick reviews by grayskullwarrior on youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzF0nLMeHAA

    Pixel Dan said he'd be reviewing soon as well. Biggest issue seems to be getting the stands in and out of the Trollans,

    They are great figures.

    Spikor is pointy. Not a kid's toy!

    Chopper is...Chopper.

    The Trollans are great. The wands' designs aren't very imaginative and a poor derivative of Orko's wand on close inspection. It IS nice that they have them, though. The stands are easy to work with if you have a blow dryer. Just heat up the socket under their robes until the plastic is malleable (a full minute under high heat for me did the trick). The stands pop right in and work securely. The stand is sadly silver, but the base is wider, making them harder to knock over.

    Overall, 3 solid entries...or rather, 4. :-).

    Good to hear. Was getting worried that they didn't exist and I had dreamt the whole thing!

    Nerds on a couch did a video while at powercon and said all three figures are solid and well made.

    Bcrduke said they are very solid and well made.

    So it looks like Super7 is improving on the plastic quality.
    I’m looking forward to my Powercon exclusives and my wave two figures.

    I had a friendly orger pick me up a set when he went to power con and they arrived today. I couldn’t wait a couple months to go the non attendees route. I’m crazy for filmation and had to have them now. I’ll post some pics later. He also—I didn’t even ask—was nice enough to pick me up the power con program which is gorgeous with its artwork

    - - - Updated - - -

    I can confirm—on mine at least—the qc is excellent. No derp eye on spikor clean lines. Nicely painted eyes on dree-Elle in fact her eyes are gorgeous I’m really happy with these. All are outstanding. And unlike Motuc Orko NO paint bleed on the Trollans’ ears And spikor teeyh nice and clean and uniform

    I also like that S7 is doing away with an crunch and sculpting armor into buck. It definitely makes it more aesthetically pleasing
    I’m so jelly right now! They look fabulous. Wish I had a friend like that too! Congrats on your new arrivals. Can’t wait (but have to!) to get mine some time next month or November...

    Filmation Spikor He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Figure Video Review
    I just watched PIXEL DANs Chopper review. It was the first time i saw him out of the package as iīm not the target audience for Club Grayskull and i didnīt paid much attention to the exclusives i have to admit.

    PIXEL DANs video introduced me to MOTUC in 2009 and even my boyfriend knows who PIXEL DAN is by now and when ever he hears his voice he asks what figure is arriving soon to our home. PIXEL DAN sold me on figures like Draego Man who i didnīt wanted in the beginning or Whiplash whom i didnīt cared for but thanks to the review i had to get.

    This video proofs to me why Club Grayskull doesīt work for me. SUPER7 is making the figures taller and slimmer. All of them appear to be skinnier-females and males. The bio on the back of Chopper calls him stocky and he looks anything but stocky in his figure form.
    It says cartoon accurate but thatīs not true. You canīt take Tri-Klops long legs and use it for Chopper...i mean you shouldīt if you want to stay true to the source material.

    His torso is to long, his legs are to long and this has nothing to do with the cartoon style but he would need a different bug similar to the 200X figures.

    Got this reply from Power Con early this morning regarding our address/collecting preference:


    Thank you for your reply!

    Pending no delays at customs, our plan is to begin shipping Non-Attendee orders in mid-October; possibly early October if we're lucky. It will take a few weeks to get everything shipped once we begin, and you will be automatically e-mailed a tracking number.
    Thank you so much for your support of Power-Con, and we hope you will be able to make it to a future show! :-)

    Sure thing! Just wanted everyone to know that they should get a verified reply email from Power-Con to our initial reply about their question.
