    Yes, sorry i should have said that. my aqua troopers are customized sundar bodies with fighting foe men horde symbols.

    i tried to take pictures like you are asking for. you can see that i have to tilt the original trooper head forward to get the same effect while the new trooper head is level. compare the position of the fin. the original trooper is the one with the laser scorching

    I actually push the armor up on the OG troopers until it basically gets stuck so I can achieve the more vintage toy accurate "hidden" eye look. It's nice that this new run basically already accomplishes this with an updated design. If you look at the 4HM prototypes, it's how it was intended to be. It appears they raised the arms up to get the armor to sit up higher, but I dunno. I haven't opened my single-carded Trooper yet to take a closer look at the engineering.

    Mine arrived in the UK this morning They all have nice paint apps apart from one where the black frame of the eyes has some white marks (either paint chips or white paint?) I'll probably stick that one on eBay at cost and maybe someone who can do paint touch ups will buy it

    Very happy though as I got free shipping on these, used the $10 coupon AND got fast shipping too! and Mattel customer service were lovely to speak to on the phone (I spoke to Renee who had a lovely accent!) Oh and my credit card company credited me for the call too. So all ended well, but now I'm wondering whether to cancel my backorder for these as I certainly do not need any more. I placed the backorder at a point where I didn't know my order would actually arrive with me choosing the wrong shipping

    How many did you get Blackie??? Congrats on the price, FREE S/H to the UK, & The BONUS of getting CREDIT for the pricey call from your CC company!!!!
    *Maybe you should sell the one w/ the paint blemish at cost to someone from here that lives in the UK so they can get a Trooper & the S/H won't be too high for them?
    *If you Backordered more Troopers early & get your order filled, I'm sure you could trade them, or at least sell them for cost + PLUS a wee bit for your troubles mate! So think about it!
    *Good score my man.
    (I didn't get the S10 Off as I made the order for my Horde Troopers quite frantically, because when I came on here & found out the Sale for everything else MOTUC/CG went live super early & that I had once again missed out on Rotar vs Twistoid, I just happened to read the HTs had not been available yet, & went to click on them & it said ADD to Cart, so i did! ...It was only after I saw the posts here about the $10 OFF deal, ...So I had NO excuse why I didn't do that on my second order for another CG Evil-Lyn & another General Sundar, in addition to the x2 of ea. I rec'd. w/ my 2016 subs.)

    I got 7 in total (2 of which are already going to other fans for cost). The reason I had to call Mattel in the first place was because the credit card bank themselves declined the transaction and I complained about it. I've had that card over 15 years and this was the first time they declined a transaction on me so I was quite mad with them considering the Troopers had since sold out! They gave me £15 (call to Mattel cost £9.42 and the call to them £2.59)

    I would but I rarely use the marketplace as very few folks seem to notice posts in there. eBay is easier really.

    I have and I've just sent Mattel Shop an email to cancel my order. I really can't afford to pay for more of these since I plan to submit my order for the Super7 Club Grayskull wave very soon.

    I actually already had the coupon added to my cart as I put a TC Skeletor vs FF He-Man (ugh!) in my cart and since that item was over $50 it made the coupon active. I then added the 7 Horde Troopers and then removed the TC/FF 2-pack from my cart before completing checkout

    I made my own trooper heads (filmation look) since I never liked displaying the whole "eye" which is clearly a flaw in the design and makes the trooper look a lot less menacing imo

    Wow, Zodac, yours looks a heck of a lot better. I passed on the Horde Troopers - to the great benefit of my wallet - for the simple reason that they don't look right to my eye. Yours might have tempted me. I suppose I should be thankful!

    Great work.

    Got my 4 Horde Troopers in today. I was skeptical about receiving the backordered figures but they came in with no problem. A much smoother experience than DR ever provided.

    Yes, I had to warn her what was coming when the backorders started getting charged Monday. She wasn't terribly happy, but I'm still alive.

    Hope you didn't order all of them and left some for other collectors?

    They are still available now. I think that the only negative effect of my ordering was on my own budget.

    You could always flip them for $250 a piece on eBay. Oh wait, never mind.

    lol. It's true that he probably wouldn't get $250, but he still might could make more. It amazes me sometimes what some figures still go for on Ebay. I see where people bid or buy it now for prices that are above what you can get a figure for off of Mattel's Ebay page. It's seems there are still a number of collectors that somehow don't know where they can still purchase some figures (Mattel shop, Mattel's Ebay page, and Wal-Mart are three good examples...with the last two being 40% off).

    The prices have fallen a lot, and sales seem to be kind of slow.

    Opened up most of my troopers and finally opened my wraiths to throw a quick shelf together.
