    I saw the email, does this mean that Origins will be widely available outside of Walmart soon?

    Some of the newer figures actually showed up at Target this week as well.

    I preordered more toys than I've ever preordered at one time from BBTS this morning.

    To paraphrase Anakin from Episode II: I preordered them. I preordered them all. They're preordered, every single one of them. And not just the figures, but the castles and the vehicles, too.
    I serve up lots of hot, fresh action figure reviews on Action Figure Barbecue!

    Except for the few items that I already have, and Castle Grayskull (which I preordered through Walmart), I just preordered everything else.

    It's nice not having to deal with Walmart exclusively for these items!

    Well, it seems that 2021 has got off to a good start. Now where's that Origins forum?

    That'll be one of the nice things about BBTS they really take care with how they pack things. Clean and unpunched cards for all!

    This.

    When BBTS first listed these, there were Lords of Power variants included... but, I don't see them now, hmmm?


    I'm used to going to BBTS to pre-order $50 - $200 figures.... at these prices, the Origins line was an easy decision to pre-order it all!

    I wonder how successful the pre-orders will be for these items. This line could turn out to be one of the best-selling mass-market lines available!

    So is everyone just ordering one of each figure when they say they "just ordered everything"?

    I ordered 2 each of my favorite 4 characters and called it good. I'd rather have an extra on order 'just in case' *crosses fingers*. I can only imagine the 3-digit totals for those of you who ordered entire multiple waves...

    I like to have extras of these, as I keep an extra "play" set of them for when my little niece visits, and I like to have extras for customs, too. With these, since it was so much stuff at once, I ordered one of most, but doubled up on several. I figure I can take my chances finding any extras I may need beyond that. It would have been nice to be able to just order three of everything, but I capped it where I did because the grand total was getting kinda scary!

    100% agree on needing that ORIGINS Forum.

    I ordered multiples of most and my total was north of $800 USD.

    Count me in for someone who would like a dedicated Origins forum as well. It's getting... confusing around here. Back to the immediate topic though, did anyone actually see any other Lords of Power single listings aside from Mer-Man? He was the only one I saw when placing my order - it never occurred to me that the others might have come and gone already... Oh great, now I'm worried.

    Has anyone else noticed that BBTS has Wave 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 up for pre-order, but no Wave 5?

    There are also two separate Evil-Lyn figures listed. One of them is from Wave 1, has a picture, and says it arrives January 2021.
    The other one is has no picture and says it arrives 2nd Quarter 2021.

    Hordak and Tri Klops now have pictures but did not when the listings first went live.

    The Lords of Power Mer-man is now listed as the "Sold Out". BBTS for me automatically hides sold out figures but you can uncheck the box on the sidebar.

    Think I will order my Grayskull from BBTS cause knowing Walmart they will ship it as is without putting it in another box and slap all the shipping labels all over it. Not to mention it the box will probably look like it was beat with a baseball bat

    I only saw LOP Mer-Man listed individually though they do have the Power-Con 5 pack back in .... at a $400 price tag! As stated you can check to see who was available but now sold out and he's the only one.

    While the individual LOP Mer-Man is listed as sold out the "Wave 6" set lists Mer-Man and Evil-Lyn along with Fisto and Stinkor so I'm assuming it's that version of him in that wave since we see the vintage toy style one in the Wave 3 set and pre-ordered it. (there's no pics of that wave yet) I'm hoping the new Evil-Lyn is Filmation or 200X colors. Never cared for banana slug skin version.

    I keep hesitating on ordering everything partly to space the payments out, but also because part of me actually wants to go on the hunt and find these at stores. I mean we gotta have movement at the brick and mortar or the line could die early. Still I want to ensure I get the hard to find ones. I pre-ordered wave 2 since Scare Glow seems so hard to get.
