    Some Spanish online shops have them on pre-order already:

    In USA the MotU Origins line will be a Walmart exclusive in 2020 and launched at other retailers in 2021: https://twitter.com/PixelDan/status/1231946842461626369

    But this strange list in the first post of this thread was a hoax.

    Ohhh, I didn't realize they were exclusive to Wal-Mart at first. I don't look forward to that chase, but hopefully all the same figures will be available on a wider basis come next year. Thanks!

    I just looked at them, and christ, Scareglow looks awful. Like, why's he solid? Wasn't it stated early on that he was going to have a translucent gitd plastic like the Mega Construx figure? Also, wow. Man-At-Arms is a wave two character, wasn't expecting that.

    Gotta agree with you, Scareglow looks terrible. Trap Jaw looks awfully cheap too. I hope for the sake of Origins fans they end up looking better in person.

    I believe Mattel stated the final production figure of Scareglow was to be cast in translucent plastic. All these sites are using photographs of prototypes.

    Okay, I really hope that's the case.

    Imo Trap Jaw isn't that bad. He looks almost zombie-ish with the eyes, and I don't mind it. Although, he needs some Eyebrows (which if he doesn't get before release, I will definitely be adding later on.

    I'm also kinda miffed about Teela not having a sword, though. But again, that's easily fixed (Wonder Woman's sword from DC Primal Age should be perfect).

    Found them on the site but there is no option to pre-order, just the product description and image. I'll keep checking.

    Hopefully theyíll come back up at some point, Iíd like to order he-man and battle cat as well, it does say theyíre for release september/october, which might be a bit premature as well.

    First bunch of figures went up for pre-order at a German online retailer (used them before, a bit slow but always got my stuff in the end) - 13,99€ per figure (over the suggested 18,99 at retail) is a pretty aggressive price, but they have done such pre-order discounts in the past with limited quantities.

    Suffice it to say, ended up pre-ordering everything even tho I am not *super* interested in this line, but hard to go wrong at those prices...

    They're on Amazon UK now. End of August release. I've managed to find Skeletor, Evil Lyn, Teela, Beastman and Battle-Cat on there. Haven't come across He-Man yet, though:

    Of all German online retailers, figureshop is the single one no one ever should recommend. Tons of collectors keep complaining to never get their stuff at all, and getting refunds was nigh-impossible. There's even reports of several legal problems. Outbidding all other shops is pretty much the only reason why they still get to do business.

    That is certainly a fair point; I can only speak from my personal experience here - but I will admit that I have not used them *a lot*, so may just have been lucky so far.

    I love these cards!

    A huge wave of nostalgia just washed over me... I especially like the subtly altered artwork on the Battle-Cat package.

    Good times!

    Did they fix Skeletorís boots? It looks like it from the carded picture, but it might be a trick of perspective. The loose photos show the original boots, with the purple calf muscles.

    Those look great. This line can't hit shelves soon enough.

    Yes, they are fixed. We got to see that in person at Nuremberg ToyFair, too.

    Don't order at figureshop.de, it's known for multiple fraud and delayed shipments for months and years.

    I wasn't a fan of the origins line to begin with. That said, on seeing the recent UK Amazon photos, I'm finding that I am now liking them quite a bit. Pre-ordered
