    I've been charged for mine, too! Skipped She-Ra and got an extra Mer-Man. The stores around here are either completely bare or clogged with dozens of He-Man and Skeletor, so thank Grodd for BBTS!

    Still no sign of Origins in Australia so I’ve decided to bite the bullet and pre order. BBTS have been great in the past. So, I’ve ordered Man-E-Faces, Ram Man & Fisto. Cannot wait to get my hands on these figures at last!

    Anyone know details about Deluxe Hordak?

    Funny that they got this wave in stock, but basic Heman and Skeletor are still pre order. While those two have been collecting dust and overfilling every peg in every walmart and now Target.

    I wonder if Mattel, forced their hand in how many cases of Heman and Skeletor BBTS had to get.

    Stinkor out, Faker in

    BBTS just emailed:

    "We have been informed by Mattel that the Masters of the Universe: Origins Wave 6 Set of 4 Figures assortment has changed. This case assortment now includes Faker instead of Stinkor. Stinkor has been pushed to the next wave, which is not yet available for sale. Our website listing is now up to date and current with the most accurate information and photos available."

    Such a weird way to get MOTU updates, but it goes to show how top-notch customer service/communications are over at BBTS.
    It's a nice surprise, as I'm a bigger Faker fan than Stinkor, so I'm fine with Stinkor coming in the following wave.
    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!

    Since they removed the listing for the single Stinkor figure from their site, I wonder if they'll add a listing for the single Faker figure instead.

    I held my breath when I read that update. I was half expecting them to cancel my Trap Jaw and Scareglow order

    Yes - this did not make me sad in any way.

    Great that Faker is included. Stinks that Stinkor is not. What I really want to know is what versions of Merman and Evil Lyn in this wave are. Hope they let us know before these ship out. Dont need reissues this fast in the line already.

    Agree with this, too - to each their own but I would rather have a large collection of multiple characters than a large collection of multiple versions of the same character - as a kid that always seemed to me to signal the death knell of a line...

    Hopefully Stinkor will have his "stinking" action feature with patchouli oil.
    Same goes for a possible Moss Man.
    Love both figures I have find memories of both figures thx to their uniqueness.
    TRADE: I have a mint moc Minicomic Tri-Klops Mattel Creations. I'm looking for the Walmart TMNT figures reissues.

    So would I! The change in case assortment doesn’t bother me in the least as long as they don’t cancel figures.

    As I sit here working...MOTU movie just randomly came on TV! What a great day!

    More than fine with me. Iíd rather have Faker first and besides, Stinkor shouldnít be too far off. Iím a little worried though... seems to me that all of the easiest characters are getting made first. Iím wondering what things are going to look like when we get to King Hiss, Squeeze, Stonedar, Modulok, Extendar, Dragstor...
    Are they going to try to implement all of their unique features from the vintage line? If so, will the all be labeled as ďDeluxeĒ? Ram Man along with Orko, are probably the most unique characters coming this year. Ram Man retains his special feature, Orko does not (tho no one is complaining lol). I hope it doesnít result in too many reissues of previously released characters to space things out. Iíd rather see them work in characters like Shikoti, Shadow Weaver, Nepthu first.

    I had Stinkor pre-ordered as well and did not receive an e-mail. Still shows up as a pre-order with a second quarter estimate. Did not purchase the wave, so don't know if my single would get substituted (not sure how they do this), but I went ahead and added a Faker to my Pile of Loot, which shows as a September estimate. Worst case scenario, I get 2 Fakers? (which I wouldn't mind at all, more reason for me to start opening some of these!)

    Maybe the only people getting emailed are the ones that ordered the whole wave as a set, not just Stinkor on his own.

    Iím a little disappointed (but not surprised) that Faker is a regular Wave figure because that means he most likely wonít be packed with a vintage style head.

    Iím sure theyíll do a Battle Armor Faker later when they need to reuse molds again.

    I'm hoping we finally get a Mattel released Faker with Magenta Armor, crazy to think we've never had one released.

    I think we have only seen Loyal Subjects do it so far.

    I think you may have hit on it there. Stinkor on his own being a pre-order for a single item that is still coming they just keep the order on file till it comes in. (they do say "estimated arrival" from the start specifically because it could change release dates) However with the whole wave set there is now a change in the product you would be receiving and so they are obligated to inform you.

    I finally broke down and preordered everything I want from BBTS.

    Personally, I want the orange armor/sword. But I hope we get the magenta armor and sword in the line too for those that want it. And Leo Faker too.
