    I prefer the brightness.
    As much as I loved Classics, I was always annoyed by the toning down of the hues on certain characters. Or the dark washes on certain figures. Origins reminds me about what I loved about the line in the first place... the amazing color palette.
    Clearing out Classics, Super7 and vintage MOTU & PoP figures... check out my threads in the Marketplace for Fisto, Sorceress, BA variants, SDCC exclusives and more!

    Beast Man weirdly has darker than vintage armor, I'm not sure why. His face paint is also less than ideal. I do like the skin tone on the new retail Mer-Man though.

    I think the muted colors on Classics worked for that line. It was meant to be more "realistic." For that scale and type of sculpt, subtlety worked better, in my opinion. The 5.5" scale figures should always be more vibrant, imo.
    Most wanted Origins figures: Mighty Spector, Fisto's Cousin's Babysitter, and Mer-Man's Seventh Grade Crush.

    Is there a thread already for Power-Con 2021? I clicked through the next pages of the forum but couldn’t find anything. Unfortunately the search function is still broken, too.

    But since the first teasers of Power-Con Exclusives 2020 were shown over a year ago, maybe we‘ll see the first glimpses of Power-Con Exclusives 2021 shortly? The Power-Con social media channels are very active lately also, so I think something is imminent.

    Well my PowerCon LoP 5 pack arrived today and..............underwhelmed.

    Packaging held together with clear tape, skew corners and the general cheapness of the display box has me fuming. Even the packaging of the $15 retail Origins figures feel and look better put together.

    Massively disappointed.

    I thought the display box was the best thing going for it other than the figures being in collectors hands for the first time.
    Hopefully you'll warmup to it. Do you like the figures?

    Really. Man I love mine. I still have it on my mantle in my living room. I loved showing my son the set while watching the grayskull documentary on Netflix again. Could it have been a better display box....sure. I think it goes quite high on the market now, so anyone unhappy with it could probably almost double your money.

    It would be really cool if one of the exclusives was from the Masterverse line.

    Yeah, the dark red harness on the retail Origins Beast Man really annoys me. It should have been the color that the Power-Con Beast Man harness is.

    Not yet. I'm waiting until I have some concrete to post.
    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2020!
