    Well, 20 bucks difference is just a couple fast food meals. eBay prices is a different deal, granted. I haven't bought any new toys off of eBay and don't plan on it.

    Found a lone Panthor at Target yesterday. I dont know if they had other figures from the line earlier in the day - there weren't even any shelf tags. I suspect this Panthor was left behind due to the careless employee going too deep with the box cutter on the side. I live in a heavily scalped toy area and the only time I find things, they have damage. Personally I want the flocked Walmart version of Panthor. Any sightings or a website link for that version yet?

    Sorry Smitty, I didn't buy him so I dont know the number, plus he was placed in the barren Star Wars section, with no shelf tag. I looked and didnt see another section with MOTU tags either.

    I got mine today. TRU has nothing for sale on their site except Panthor, Battle Cat and the Sky Sled. Don't know if they have any other figures in waiting to be sold in the store, as we are on lockdown.

    Some pics of the box. Love that new centaur character. Looks like he's a good guy:

    That art is my MOTU too.

    Though the Classics figures' designs are more my MOTU than Origins figures' designs.

    Agreed, I was merely talking about the artwork however. As figures though, both Panthor and Battle Cat are beautiful. If they had articulated ankles, I would call them the best ever made...but they don't.

    Not having at least front ankle joints makes the rest of the articulation useless. It is even worse than not giving a bipedal figure ankles, because of the angle of what the knee joints need to be at. This makes it not even a better toy than than vintage. These things can't even get into the CLASSIC vintage Battle Cat/Big Jim Tiger pose. VERY strange design/engineering decision. Should have gotten rid of ANY other joint and kept ankle articulation if it was a cost issue.

    Exactly, all that articulation being rendered useless makes me wonder how the design team EVER allowed this, lol.
    The head articulation is glorious, however. Better than MOTUC.

    Those little dinosaur creatures are cool. I'm going to try to find something like those for my display, there's gotta be something out there. Probably in those tubes of a bunch of rubber ones at party city.

    If anyone is curious about the flocked box "feel", if you have a music store near you, ask if they have the Evans Calftone drum heads. They're synthetic drumskins with a coating that mimics the sound and feel of vintage calfskin, and it's a *very" similar coating to what Mattel will be spraying on these packages.
    Most wanted Origins figures: Mighty Spector, Fisto's Cousin's Babysitter, and Mer-Man's Seventh Grade Crush.

    Can anyone share the link for the Walmart Exclusive Origins Flocked Panthor? I hear people saying they see him sell out online, but I have not found a link.

    For All:
    I donít know about here in the States yet but, a few places in The EU have the Origins Flocked Panthor for preorder (along with the Rise of Evil 2-Pack) for those looking there. More importantly, there show a release date of end of August/September.
