    And it will only cost you the bargain price of a thousand dollars to get your (webbed) hands on Merman. It’s this kind of thing that’s makes me regret collecting.

    I'd beware of that auction. Since there is no Mondo-Con happening in 2020 (even that M logo on it looks fake) this is probably someone scamming.

    It looks pretty legit to me...The colour scheme is amazing!!

    Hopefully it is an edition of 300 which should keep the price down. Including the stand is welcome too!!

    Would love to hear an official word on this one as my collection is crying out for him to be added to it...

    I wish all will proceed with caution. Brock is active here right? Maybe he can provide confidence to this.

    Agreed...would touch that auction with a barge pole...but hopefully it means these are produced and might drop soon...maybe via a virtual con??

    Thatís what I was thinking/hoping. It does look like an amazing figure - I mean, Merman was my favourite so far anyway but this is stunning.

    I have had some correspondence with the seller regarding this MOTUbi Merman (attached) and the main point is that he states as a retailer, he has been sent this "convention exclusive" from MONDO (which he has immediately listed on Ebay for a thousand dollars).

    He is of course also offering to go outside Ebay to sell me it. No thanks but would very much like to hear from Mondo regarding this.

    What convention, though?
    The "M" logo sticker on the box is not an actual Mondo logo, and I'm skeptical of the "written in pen" edition number as well.

    The M from the Mondo Con logo looks like the M from the Mondo logo, so I don't see why you think it doesn't look legitimate.

    Ah, I see it on their website (the use of that particular "M" for Mondo...). I was thinking of the standard M that they've been using on all of the previous releases (including Designer-Con). This one just looked... off by comparison.

    Is it just me or is the sellers response a little "iffy" it's very broken english. I would really like to hear from @brockotter on this situation.

    To be honest with you that’s why I pursued this - I can’t imagine for one second that Mondo would actually provide a single exclusive to some random store for them to put up on eBay at an extortionate price and risk damaging their firm’s reputation. Loyal customers might get disillusioned with the line.

    Of course, from my own (perhaps selfish) point of view, I am kind of “all in” on this line at the moment and would just like a fair shot at collecting the complete line.

    I don't want to jump to conclusions, but I've seen stuff like this before, where the factory making things have to run several samples before production, and the samples get sold online. I know a while back Brock posted pictures of Mer-man being painted with the metallic colors. I don't know if those were actual production pieces or paint samples for the factory . I'd like to know more about where this came from.

    Maybe for those who are interested would try to reach out to Brock via FB or instagram or whatever first aside from this forum.

    Maybe those that are interested choose not to be on Facebook and Instagram and know that Brock visits this forum?

    Also, isn’t this the 1-6-scale-MOTU-toy-line-coming-from-Mondo forum? If this isn’t the right place to discuss the Mondo MOTUbi Merman then please point me in the right direction.

    Sorry I don't quite understand what do you mean. I only want people who are interested to be cautious with their hard earned money before proceeding and look on other avenues aside from the forum (because we are not getting a response here in the forum) to reach out to Mondo and Brock.

    Hey guys.

    We were talking before about weapons racks and how cool they would be, but what other accessories would you like for this line?

    The Bone Throne? A flight effect stand for (a possible) Orko?

    Personally - because Mondo do great posters - I would like some backgrounds for display pieces. High quality card that fold into Detolf shelves or could be kept flat to stick on your wall if you use wall shelves. Those would be amazing.

    Cheers guys.

    All really good ideas. The weapons rack is a must for me as I would love to display all the awesome accessories that I’m not currently using with the figures. I would definitely be up for some Mondo backdrops as well.

    I would like to see some mini stands for the extra heads as well.

    Both great ideas, especially the Bone Throne. Mondo-style, that would be epic! I could see people who are not even fans of MOTU buying that for 12" figs. I could also see something like just the jaw-bridge and mouth of Grayskull for posing your He-Man inside.

    (what I really want: full-scale pit for placing a 1/6th scale Granamyr inside )

    I'd like to see an improvement made to the figure stands. Maybe something a bit more diorama-ish? With things to pop spare weapons onto or something like that.

    YES! The stands that come with the figures are a lost opportunity IMO!
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    That, and they actually don't work very well with these figures... so there's ALL kinds of room for improvement!

    Wow, that Motubi Merman on eBay went for $600 if the winner bidder actually pays. If this is a legit item and there are 300 of these produced then dang. Even the Motubi Skeletor restocked a little after the con, and it was only 100 pieces.

    That is a pretty cool looking Mer-Man. It's definitely odd that a random store would have one, but who knows? Maybe Mondo sent some out to throw a bone to some of their customers? Stranger things have happened.
    I serve up lots of hot, fresh action figure reviews on Action Figure Barbecue!

    Still would love to hear an update on the Man-At-Arms sale date. He looks incredible.
