    I was expecting to like the Greyskull set the best of the exclusives cause I love accessories like that, but itís definitely the biggest disappointment. Not horrible, just not quite right. I think a full set of weapons for the weapon rack should have been included, as well.
    I wondered if the communication regarding the dimensions of the dungeon was lost in translation between design and factory, through transposition or otherwise. It seems to be scaled both too wide and long AND the orlax too tall.

    So I sent the samples to the folks packing the Power-Con shipping boxes and just told them to toss 1 coloring book in each box until they ran out. There's no rhyme or reason to who got one. It's all random.
    I stand corrected! Is the coloring book something that will be released to the public?

    Yeah, I looked and they're not there. It's not a huge deal in the scheme of things...just another let down in a long line of let downs with this whole exclusive set. It's not enough to have to pay nearly double through BBTS, all the delays, and then not get what it's supposed to be. But whatever, the cards don't make or break the figures, it's the fact that Mattel seems to not care at all that really sucks. BBTS says they need to hear from Val, Val says he needs to hear from Mattel, and Mattel doesn't care to even respond. So I give up, like I said in the earlier post.

I know there are Mattel designers who do like MOTU, but I just have a feeling that the Four Horsemen would have done this set properly.

    Has Mattel explained (yeah right) why the 4H are not involved in any of the current lines? It's strange because from 200x all the way through Classics they consistently worked on the brand for almost 20 years, so they obviously have a long association with the brand and a good working relationship with Mattel (and subsequently Super7 as well).

    I would guess itís definitely cheaper to do things in-house, it keeps the costs down.

    I thought they worked on some from either wave 2 or three - if I recall from an early video Mattel did but maybe that changed since we never hear anything about them in relation to Origins.

    We know they did Masterverse Moss Man, but outside of that, I donít think there has been any 4H involvement.

    So this is the final response from BBTS in regards to my Horde Set not including the pack of Power-Con cards...Mind you this IS a Power-Con labeled version of the set I ordered on the day of release from BBTS as I couldn't get on the Power-Con site to order.
    If anyone can explain exactly what is being said here...I'd greatly appreciate a translation...and no, I'm not returning it.
    Mattel's reply to this issue makes absolutely no sense as ALL the Power-Con stock sold both on their site and BBTS went to Power-Con first. There was absolutely no way to distinguish which were sold through Power-Con or BBTS as they were all from the same lot. So I call B.S. on that excuse.

    Good day,

    Thank you for your patience while our Product team was awaiting confirmation from Mattel regarding the Power-Con cards. Concerning the trading cards, we finally just got confirmation late yesterday that the majority/all of that Horde sets sold outside of Power-Con itself did not include cards. Apparently, Mattel manufactured a specific allotment for the con with cards and then a good deal more for sale afterwards that did not contain the cards - this is why the details for the listing that we were provided did not include mention of the cards. The smaller packs from the con look to have been sourced directly from there and did happily enough include the cards.
    As your set did not include the cards as you were expecting we can proceed with a return of the set for a full refund. Please confirm if you wish to proceed with the return and if you are able to accept a pre-paid FedEx return label through your e-mail.

    I look forward to your response.

    It sounds to me like the customer service rep doesn't realize that BBTS received its sets from Power-Con rather than from Mattel. So perhaps the wrong question was asked of Mattel? My Faker set from BBTS did include the cards.

    I doubt many will take them up on it, but it is nice that BBTS is offering a full refund for those that didn't get the cards.

    If anyone returns the whole set just for some missing cards they are nuts lol. But yes that is rather nice of BBTS to do that.

    My Faker set had the cards, the Horde set and Grayskull set did not. I know I will never get them and that's fine, I'm certainly not returning them, but the excuse from Mattel makes no sense. I figured I would just post the reply so anyone else missing the cards can see where we stand.

    It seems to me, as suggested above, that there was miscommunication between BBTS and Mattel. The simple reason the cards are missing, in your case, was likely a packing mistake. All Power-Con direct sales and BBTS sales should have the cards since Power-Con staff received the whole allocation and sent BBTS theirs.

    Mistakes happen. My Grayskull sets should have had Power-Con logos on the box but had MOTU logos instead. They did have the cards though.

    The lack of cards is (to me) far from a deal breaker. I wouldn't return the set just because some cards were not included.

    I would think all of those would have been shipped by now as I received mine two months ago. But the majority of people did not get any type of shipping notice or tracking for it, so it just randomly showed up with absolutely no warning. I happened to be home when it came, but had I not been it could have easily been swiped right off my porch and I would have never known. Not to freak you out, but I think you should have gotten it by now.

    I'm in Europe. My packing slip from the Horde pack says scheduled shipping date for the Grayskull set is late December.

    Well then in that case it sounds like you have nothing to worry about.
