    And concerning the Sorceress, it IS possible to get some decent poses out of her:

    CG
    Sorceress - 9/10. I really love her. I got 2 - one to pose as Kuduk Ungol on the throne and the other as the standard version. I love the wings and their flexibility. I wasn't too sure about it when it was announced but I am loving it. Thanks to the plastic KU can be seated on the throne and that was one of the reasons I got her. Out of my 2 KU faces, one has a little spot on her cheek next to her lips, but I'm not too bothered as I'm only using one. The perfect one of course. Sorceress both have the thinner pouting lips but the one looks better than the other. One looks a bit skew. Good thing I got two. I ordered a third one for a friend and his also has the pouting lips but they're on straight like my first one. I may be making the lips fuller like KU but they're real nice though. She's not as glossy as she appears in many photos. She doesn't photograph that well sadly - need the right light etc. But I love her. She's my favourite from the wave. A tad short but I can overlook that.
    Tung Lashor - 8/10. His knees were stuck together with paint so when I finally got them to bend for that special pose of his, it pulled off some paint. His head was a slight battle to put back on and doesn't turn very well, but he is really cool. Only down part is his gun doesn't fit in properly - I might have to reheat his hands. Thrilled to have him though. Now I want his chum.
    Merman - 9/10. The slight paint problems on his hands chipping away is really the only issue. I don't mind the "no-neck". Or the purple spear. Love the corn sword. His shoulder pads are a bit bent but that's from the packaging.
    MEF - 9/10. Man he is really big! Great weapons choice. Solid figure. Awesome. His faces turn a bit difficult but it works.

    CC
    Granita - 8/10. She's stunning! Cher lookalike of course. I'll echo what everybody else said about her rock pieces. They're somewhat tricky to put on - especially the legs. But she's stunning. Glad to have her with the other two. Now we need Facet.
    Karg - 10/10. Brilliant piece of work. That cape is amazeballs! Excellent work here S7.
    Dylamug - 20/10. This is the best figure by S7 so far. I just love him. Magnificent. I can sing his praises all day long. I even showed my 90 year old granny how his face plates spin and she laughed so loud. What a great sturdy figure. There's only 2 down sides to him - his chest plate on his forehead falls out too easy. Had to use sticky tack to keep it in place. The wires protruding from his shoulders bend real well - but the right side limits the upward movement of the arm so he can't shout YAY without having his arm drop slightly. It doesn't matter. I love it. And like S7 said in their very first mailer about how proud they are of making him, I would be too. Genius!
    Wrap Trap - well I can't score this bad boy. He looks great. But I'm going to sell him. He is just not part of my canon sadly. I'm a Filmation lover so he doesn't fit into my story. But I'll find him a good home.

    Overall - 9/10 for both waves. Homerun in my opinion, even with the little problems. I cannot wait for the next wave. Thank you Brian and co. It was worth the wait.
    Happy you are happy

    I did like davevh on the last page- canceled and ordered through bigboycollectibles. They will be here today. Same price as bbts only 4$ more in shipping but they were sent priority. Using S7 next time, never going third party for these again-waited too long when first available to order.

    Oddly bbc upped the price on merman since I ordered him, I paid 49.99 and last I checked he is 57.99. A bit cheeky!
    My Merman and Karg did arrive 2 days ago, shipping was a lot quicker than BBTS (who are still showing these as pre-order). They both arrived in pristine shape and do not appear to have any quality control issues (I am keeping them in the boxes for now, though I did briefly remove Merman to correct his bent shoulder armor flap and make sure none of the joints were broken.

    Wave 2 Arrival Thread

    Has anyone who pre ordered a single figure from BBTS received it yet? Seems like people who ordered sets got them already, but I donít know if singletons have started shipping.

    EDIT: Oh, scrolled up and saw some other folks mentioning this. Well itís nice to not be alone.

    It's funny. When I order from BBTS and use the flat rate shipping. The package ships from Somerset, WI. Goes up to St. Paul, MN. Then to a sorting center about a mile from my house in Chicago. Then back up to WI. Then back to my local USPS.

    For BBTS, I just pay the 4 or so bucks extra for FedEx so it does less traveling.

    I have the filmation set of 4 on pre-order from BBTS. Also have each of these 4 on pre-order individually at BBTS along with 2 from the grayskull set. The only figures that BBTS gave notice for as now available to ship were Sorceress, Tung-lashor, and Wrap-Trap. None of the others came up as in stock yet. Doesn't BBTS get these all in at once?

    I had Sorceress on order, and I do want to get her, but I donít know if I want her for $50 plus shipping anymore. I think Iíll let her fly off.

    Felt the same way after seeing the problems and how different the final figure is from the prototype. Guess I will never have a Sorceress in my collection since I am not a fan of the classics version.

    may have to do with when you pre-ordered them, the order they are mailing them out? I pre-ordered Mer-Man, Sorceress and Karg and BBTS already charged me for all 3, sent me an email like 2 days before they charged me saying all my pre-ordered figures were in and ready to ship, would be done after my charge cleared. That was a few days ago.

    Iím not unhappy with this new version, I thought sheíd be worth having so I can have her both in Grayskull and on my shelf, and I really did want that perched Zoar. Iím not saying this passive aggressively at all (though I have been known to do so in the past), I honestly donít mind the changes from proto to release. Theyíre going to show you a 10 but sell you a 7.... but that 7 might be a 10 on its own scale. Does that make sense? Thatís kinda how I see things.

    If all you want is a perched Zoar, let me know as I'm not interested in this version at all.
