    Nope, M is back to being a guy since Skyfall in 2012, and Superman has had the red trunks since 1938 and is currently back to wearing them... Now if we can just get Batman to do the same...

    Vintage MOTU had better headsculpts. That was 40 Years ago. I think they could have been at least a little better by this point. Yes, they do have better articulation, but you also lose action features. It's not like they need to spend more money to have better headsculpts. It costs the same whether you get cartoon Spicoli He-Man or something a little better. I like the complaining about complaining though. If you don't like constructive criticism or don't have any to add why are you even reading this thread? Just wondering.

    Constructive Criticism is the same thing I heard about Classics 2008- Present it keeps going on and on and on nothing changes...So why complain just don't buy it...

    Not true - some changes in Classics came about as a result of complaints.

    Even if they had re-issued him you would probably still be waiting on him and he would have quality control issues.

    That's true I don't know how many grey hairs I got from talking to customer service on this...And all I get from the people that actually got him instead of that sucks that's wrong etc. "If they re-issue him mine will go down in price".......God forbid that....

    An under whelming sequel. Too similar to the original for my liking. The stakes weren't upped enough.

    Hoo boy, where to begin?

    First, one guy said he liked Origins Scareglow better than the vintage Scareglow. I proceeded to show him the error of his ways and then I wallowed in my own crapulence for hours.

    Then there was the guy who thought (get this), that Merman was a weaker character than Stinkor! Hahahahahahaha, I sure meme'd the heck out of that guy.
    Most wanted Origins figures: Mighty Spector, Fisto's Cousin's Babysitter, and Mer-Man's Seventh Grade Crush.

    My main beef is with Skeletor's constantly disappointing head sculpts/paint ups from the Origins team, I love the bucks - so I upgraded:

    Man, these look so good I may actually buy an Origins Skeletor just to copy your throne idea!
