    Got mine and it's awesome to have this added to my shelf. Flipping through, I already discovered some new old characters I'd like to see made in toy form, so it's always cool to discover these vintage gems.

    Kudos to Danielle and the crew on putting this supplement out!!!

    This thing is phenomenal! I've been enjoying curling up on the couch with it after these long days of work.

    Good effort on the supplemental. It's less illustrated than the main guide but it was good to see photos of a few vintage figures.

    A lot of the sources now, though, are incredibly obscure. It made me wonder if the book is too ambitious in its reach.

    For me, the various background stories have become so maze-like and far-fetched (and that's saying something for MOTU) that they have ceased to be interesting and enjoyable. That convoluted minefield is highlighted in this book.

    But that doesn't detract from my admiration of those involved in the book's research and production.

    Just got the bundle, so I can't wait to open the books and lose myself in them. Amazing packaging job - I feel like the box could have fallen off the truck and been run over and the books would have still been ok!!

    It's a pretty deepcut. And will be of interest to certain part of fans in the MOTU/POP fandom.

    Thanks! That means a lot!

    Agreed , from what I understand , they are not technically “ offcial” cause they have not been introduced officially into any sort of media/ bio , therefore their entries were skipped over, although the appeared in the 2nd ubg, as un recognizable sketches in the background, yet axel was commissioned by Mattel/TG to create them, as sketches, which is confusing cause doesn’t that make them official. Does that mean anyone can make a figure of them and mattel can’t claim rights to the idea? It’s the same with goldenrod and snarll the snow thief, their names appeared in the Cc box art vote, yet they aren’t recognized as official entries, where are they in the limbo. Val/ jukka, care to chime in on this?

    Can anybody help me by providing the approximate size and weight of the parcel of the combo? The only option I have is to have it reshipped through a forwarding service, but to get an idea of the cost of the service I need those specs.
    Thanks!
