    just before Christmas they had the snake mountain ring on sale for $25 which is when I grabbed it. at that time the retail price was $50. right after the sale the price then went to the $60 its currently at. no idea what sense it makes to pull something on clearance to then only raise it above the original retail price. but these were available on the cheap for about 2 weeks.

    I can't believe I missed this. I would have snatched that up in a heartbeat for $25 if I had known it was on sale at the time.

    These never hit my local stores, and the two orders I placed when WM's website had them for $40 were both cancelled. Then they jacked the price up to $61 the same day they started their "free shipping/no minimum purchase" deal. I get that these rings don't easily fit in a standard shipping container, but don't pee on my leg and tell me it's Snout Spout. They just rolled the shipping into the item cost for bigger/bulkier items and their advice to angry consumers is "come on in to our stores where the prices are normal!"

    How 'bout you close half the WM stores down in areas where you have three on every block, or five for every man, woman and child in town, convert those stores into small/regional distribution centers, and ditch the whole "half Target/half Amazon" identity crisis you seem to be having and just pick one to concentrate on, or split the company into two separate entities? When you start cannibalizing one division to sustain the other, you end up being General Motors circa 1999 or Mattel (pick any year).

    Nice score! I hope I can find these too. I can't believe we have not found any online links for this wave yet (not to mention the previous wave!). Anyone have any luck on that? And man, I kinda hope they make a toy of that slime pit pictured in the mini comic. It would look awesome! And the yellow slime is a great touch!

    Has anyone seen or have the leaked photo of the next wave, apparently including Alexa Bliss. Word on the street is a seller in china had them posted for sale on eBay but the listing was taken down.

    Oh mother glory! I absolutely cannot believe what I found in Walmart this morning! I was able to pick up two of each of Wave 5! Now I have ones to keep in package and openers all in one fell swoop! Pretty amazing considering these haven't even shown up online yet. In fact, they were not even in the system yet. I had to wait for a manager to come over to self checkout to ring them up. I did find this info on Facebook though:

    These luscious beauties were discovered hanging upon Walmart store pegs like divine ripened fruit from the vine just ready for the picking in the Dallas area. Happy hunting!

    They have not rung up for anyone yet. I saw some posts on Facebook that indicated some Walmart employees refused to sell them to the person.

    hWo Macho Man did not ring up for me, but the nice lady at the self check out entered it for 14.72 manually. She asked what it was I told her to call it MOTWWEU she seemed puzzled but did it anyway.

    I took an old school nWo promo title card from a vignette shoot, and I remade it as hWo. It wasn't hard. But it was oddly satisfying and fun. The Mattel team had this and more in the scripts. They are doing a lot of nods where they can.

    Nope. I prefer to preserve the potential for future employment.

    All I can say is I'm finishing up the colors on Wave 8's art right now.

    I can feel you on that. So are you privey to any upcoming Origins stuff that you can work into your MotWWEU art? By the way I love, love, LOVE the work you are doing.

    Agreed - excellent work Val. Also Axel. It's really satisfying to see actual MOTU fans getting to work on the property in an official manner.

    The only Origins item I worked on was the original SDCC 2-Pack.
    Sorry!

    Thanks. But I just work on the minicomics. Axel did the lineart on Wave 1. But it's been Wellinton Alves on all the other minicomics.
    It's been a lot of fun!

    So the slime pit and Talon Fighter were just fan service? Still cool and your work is still awesome.
