    Matty FB update Guards and battle Armor Skeletor.

    Howdy, this was just posted over on Facebook, Enjoy!

    Hey gang,



    A few new MOTUC updates for you.



    1: We just got in early samples of Buzz-Off in package. Note that we will see if there is time to turn his helmet around in package.Still pending.



    2: Got some new images of Battle Armor Skeletor as well with the chest plates and axe. Still not 100% final, but getting closer. Check out those purple feet just like fans demanded!



    3: Grizzlor's head is removable. Earlier we had thought it would not be. Looks like I spoke to soon!



    4: The Palace Guards are slipping out a bit due to some logistics (yes we know how you feel about this word...). Look for them now at the start of 2011. Note they are not part of the 2011 subscription even if they slip out to early 2011 avail.



    A lot more MOTUC greatness is coming in 2011. We should have the April figure to reveal soon. The sculpt just came in and looks fantastic. Once it is painted we'll reveal this next figure to the fans. Here is a hint, he is a member of the Masters....



    That's it for now, see you in the toy aisles or on Mattycollector.com!



    Matty

    I don't mind the Palace Guards slipping, easier on my wallet and can pray they do something about the servers by then

    My thoughts exactly!

    Though I do think BAS's belt and shorts look dull.

    also in the vintage figure (sorry cant be bothered digging him out) werent his 'dents' silver? Though I think I prefer the Black.

    I imagine Skeletor's belt will have some paint when all is said and done.

    Interesting hint about the new master. I have a feeling this will be a big deal character, like man-e-faces, mekaneck, or ram-man.

    EDIT: Come to think of it, that would seem too good to be true. We have just recieved two major masters after all, in Roboto, and Buzz. Maybe it's a less demanded character after all. I want to see sy-klone.

    I'm so disappointed about the guards getting pushed back again. I was looking forward to them more than anything else this fall, and looking forward to buying very little, if any, of the stuff currently on tap in 2011. Looks like I'll have to join the fray on sale dates after all.

    I'm very glad to hear that the April figure is one of He-Man's crew though! Hopefully a 2nd or 3rd wave character.

    Oh c'mon--can't we get the Guards pushed back ANOTHER month to, say, February or March? Why break the precedent?

    Sigh.

    Uh-oh. Another male Master and not a female. Let the crying commence.

    I'd rather have the crying commence now, then all the crying that's going to be going on later when they have "too many" females coming out all at once.

    Thing is, I won't be crying. Though I might be angry if that is ALL they are coming out with, which won't be the case, just like they don't come out with only males now. There are going to be four females this coming year (2011) and there were three in 2010 (Adora, She-Ra, Evil Lyn).

    I'm digging BA Skeletor. Finally coming to fruition...

    1. MAN does BA Skeletor look bada**!

    2. I'm relieved about the Palace Guards as the end of this year was getting expensive!

    Am I the only one that's not a fan of the purple feet?
    Good news IMO on the guards, this is just me hoping but I hope the issue is the addition of a second non lieutenant armor plate so those who are building armies can have only one lieutenant. Also this gives me rime to save.

    I think BA Skeletor looks VERY cool. I'm happy about the feet and the look in general, really.

    Also, count me as one of the people happy the guards moved out. I want them really badly but moving away from Christmas-gift-buying time is a good thing. I need to be buying for others, not myself!

    Here is a hint, he is a member of the Masters....
    Mekaneck, Fisto, Clamp Champ, Man-E-Faces = more likely

    Ram Man, Sy-Klone, Snout Spout, Extendar or a Comet Warrior = would be a great suprise!!!

    the Battle Armor looks really good.

    Too much green-wash on the face IMO.

    Hate the painted toenails. He's wearing boots we shouldn't see his nails!

    Kinda torn on the guards slipping. It'll be easier on the wallet in some regard (no pun intended) but I'm getting impatient.

    And on the impatient note. Were are my girls? Gimme my Sorceress!

    I kinda like the furry shorts. We have so many Skeletor's already, it's cool to have some differences. And that is what the vintage looked like.

    His dents were silver, but I perfer the black too. I am loving these BA versions, I just kinda wish that the armor didn't look so much like life jackets.

    I don't think it will.

    Regarding the April figure, I am guessing either Ram Man or Men-E-Faces. The tone of the answer made it sound like we are going to be impressed. But aren't they all "Masters"? Could it be someone like Spikor?

    I dig the toenail color on Skeletor, but the green on the skull looks like a terrible wash job.

    The green wash on Skelly's face looks off, and I don't have a spare Skeletor head to switch with.

    No, in the MOTUC canon the "Masters of the Universe" is the name of the heroic warriors.

    Well, I hope the Palace Guards don't come in January 2011 because that month we are already getting Bow for $20 and Shadow Beast for $30. I don't want to add another $40 set on top of that

    Battle Armor Skeletor looks great, I just hope for the final release that his purple shin-guards/boots are the same shade of purple as his chest armor,that metallic purple looks cool!

    I'm also fine with the Palace Guards being pushed back, I wasn't looking forward to fitting that additional cost into my holiday budget.

    Skeletor is coming along nicely! This pic is really getting me geeked for 'em, I think. Axe looks nice too, though I'm still considering trying to get the purple Evil Lyn crystal ball on top to finish the look.

    Also not disappointed by the second push back of the guards! Now that it's in 2011 I won't have to buy anything but that one thing.

    -Loved the nod to the hate of the term "logistics". Probably it has to do with the UPS ad.
    -Kinda sucks that I'll have to wait to own my very own Toyguru head.
    -BA Skelly is looking good... Once again I might have to drybrush some yellow...
    -Rio Blast!! Probably it's Mekaneck...
    Wow! 10 months of male figures... People will complain when the 4 females are bunched up together...
