    I need all the playsets I don't have room for too lol.
    They did say that 2022 was "the year of VMU" so looking good for Hurricane Hordak, any fingers crossed Starburst She-Ra.

    For the past month and a half I stopped actively making trips to retail stores to look for Origins or Masterverse. I got so sick of seeing loads of Clamp Champs, Ram Mans, Battle Cats, Panthors, Sky Sleds, and Wave 5 figures clogging the shelves for months on end. Even crazy discount sales couldn't clear them out back in November. Yesterday I happened to be in a mall with a Walfart and Toy R Us for other reasons, but I decided I'd quickly glance at what MOTU stuff is on the shelves these days after my intentional absence. Sure enough - all the exact same crap as before. It's very dispiriting as a collector to not see any new product on shelves after many MONTHS. I'm so done with this BS. Thankfully with BBTS and many other retailers I have the option of pre-ordering. While the shipping costs are annoying, at least you get stuff THAT YOU ACTUALLY WANT delivered right to your doorstep instead of the incredible frustration of wasting countless hours and gas driving around to various stores only to wind up empty handed and having to endure the irritating presence of Walmartians to boot.

    I find it amazing how Canada got flooded with Ram Man and Clamp Champ and last week was the first time I’ve ever seen either one on any peg in any store.

    I used to travel many weekends many miles out of town looking for stuff only to see the exact same things that are in my area. I am too old for this junk anymore. The amount of time spent looking and the cost of the gas negates the shipping charges in most cases. There is no thrill of the hunt if you never bring anything home. Thank goodness for Entertainment Earth and BBTS, my first plan of strategy for getting the figures in my hand.

    found a stridor at one target today and a deluxe triklops at another. both locations i had to give them the DCPI # to get them out of the back. each store only had 1 each so they were obviously selling them to other people out of the back as well. i just dont get why they dont put them on the shelves as theres tons of empty space in both stores. just happy that it only took me one trip of searching to get them.

    Stridor and Masterverse Tri-Klops are starting to trickle out in the Dallas area too. I scored both at a local Target. Although, like many have stated here, I did have to show an employee the DCPI number and they grabbed them from the back. They're both awesome! I really can't wait for Masterverse Trap Jaw!

    I did the same. There’s late and then there’s BBTS late. Thankfully, that will help with my budget since it doesn’t look like the NECA stuff I preordered will be shipping anytime soon.

    This is my closest Walmart. Been like this since thursady. I’m hoping they sell so the Sun-Man wave hits. We have 15 or so snake playsets in top stock and the bottom shelf has a ton of the 10” deluxe he-man. Haven’t had the masterverse in this store in about 2 weeks. Rest of the aisle is pretty empty. I won’t even show the hot wheels and lego aisle. It’s just to……sad.

    Stopped at a couple of targets, tons of masters, no masterverse trapjaw but I saw a few stridor’s ,but I’ll stick with BBTS for that, they’ve been good to me.

    guys is this forum basically the closest thing we have to a place to go for news about what they're releasing & when?

    some guy on YT says they're about to release Wun-Dar and some Character called Kol-Darr? where do i READ about this stuff?

    where does Mattel announce "Mattel Creations" releases?

    i also don't wanna get caught in another deal like the 2021 power con exclusives which i found out about a day too late

    thanks

    On the Mattel Creations website. Just go there and sign up for their emails. Those figures are supposed to be coming in the spring. But yes you will find alot of information on stuff like that here in the forums.

    There are quite a few very active MOTU Facebook groups. The latest news always leaks there first (even with lots of pictures!). Apart from that, toynewsi.com is very on the ball with all the current action figure news. I find this forum to be slower than those other outlets. It's not what it once was...

    Still haven’t seen a single origins figure in store here in Australia yet. Just drove 40 minutes to the closest store that displayed figures as “in stock” online. Get there and the guy said he got 4 figures in yesterday and they had all sold out.

    Fun times.

    Found Ram-man, Mosquitor and Stridor in stores the last few days, and thanks for the forum was able to return and get with the 15% discount! That's all!

    Found a line stridor earlier but passed on him because the box was torn. Also looked like another refresh of wave 7

    Got my first ever STRIDOR! I never had this as a kid, but I remember my friend's did among a ton of other MOTU goodness. I think they really captured the vibe here. Was just curious what the extra helmet was for? Comic version? Found the Sorceress too for good measure.

    Also, new here, what does VMU stand for - is that like the Vac-Metal stuff liked Flying Fists and Thunder Punch?

    I think they just included it in the Origins release as a bonus since the Classics version had it as well.
