    The reveals were pretty cool. I'm particularly excited for
     
    Mantenna! He's always been my favorite Horde character after Hordak, and one of my favorite characters overall. And the end result is nothing short of spectacular! I can't wait to get him! Now if they just manage to at least release Horde Troopers and Scorpia (and maybe Modulock) before the line ends, I'll feel that faction is as complete as it needs to be.


    As for the rest of the reveals
     
    the figures overall look nice, but I can't say that I'm super excited for any of the rest of the specific characters revealed. None of them are characters that I will scoff at owning my any means, but none were "must haves" for me either. They all are well executed, though. I'm guessing that the 3 Filmation characters will probably be some kind of 3-pack for SDCC. If that's the case and if there is going to be a "difference" between the versions sold at SDCC and on Matty, I hope it's done in the vein of Vykron and Marlena where the figures and accessories are exactly the same, but just packed out differently. I hope we don't get differences like the two different versions of Orko for a 3-pack.

    Grayskull is looking pretty cool. I hope a fully painted version is shown soon.

    Marc, do you recommend the trench coat, black hat, black gloves and Pimp cane?

    Pass on Pre meeting. Saturday is my tough day of the week so I'm going to be napping until we leave.

    You can get away with black jeans and a nice shirt. I did that for New Year's Eve when we went there.

    I might not be up for any meetings for a while after this. This place is a bit on the pricey side. So I might not see anyone until c2e2 if I go to that.

    Sorry Gabe. Just getting the one sub this year. So now that the option is there; who is considering canceling their Castle order?

    There are some disappointing aspects to the Castle, but overall, I'm still pleased with what's been shown so far.

    Yes, it could/should be bigger, the interior walls should have some kind of texture to them, that Wind Raider stand is completely useless, The orb cabinet is kinda dumb, but I still like what's there, for the most part.

    After seeing Pixel Dan's video, the interior is not complete yet, and with the amount of people saying they're going to cancel their pre-orders, I'm sure there's time to address most major concerns before final production starts. The only thing I doubt they can/will do anything about is the size. We've just been sucked into another case of overhype from Toyguru. Promise the moon, but deliver something close and imperfect.

    That being said, IT'S CASTLE FRIGGIN' GRAYSKULL! I'm still stoked to have one in this line, even if it is a little on the small side....

    Yeah, after seeing PD's video and hearing a few things its not that bad. The Wind Raider in the center makes no sense. There are rumors that if something gets cut they might to expansion packs later.

    So, what's this thread all about? I'm curious. I did a search for Part 1, but was unable to find it, and the first post in this thread has 0 actual information. I live in Chicago, and I'm interested in MOTUC. Is this some sort of meetup thread or what? Sorry if I'm asking any stupid questions.

    Those tiered stands are pretty nice, so depending on the p[rice point I might get them. but the tiered spice racks i'm using now are pretty good for now.

    Sorry, I think part 1 was deleted a few years ago when the site was trying to cut down on space or something. We used to be a He-Man fanclub known as the Chicago Horde. We'd have regular meetings, events and projects. But we kind of disbanded the club a while back. We kind of use this thread to chat about whatever's on our minds, and yeah, sometimes there are public get-togethers that are mentioned here. Feel free to join in the conversation.

    Remember when Coupons & sticker sheets were the only perks to having a subscription

    Those DCU coupons never did me any good. I would find what I was looking for before the coupons would show or after they expired. I guess I could've always gotten several Cyborgs or Captain Colds

    So did anyone score extra Ram Mans or Jitsus?

    The snow out my way wasn't too bad. I think we only got maybe 3 or 4 inches. The roads around here were already plowed and everything by the time I got going this morning.

    Unfortunately I can't help you with the Granymyr box, Gabe. I still have mine, but I'm hanging onto it for the nice artwork on it.
