    Origins Display and Collection pics (show us what you got!!)

    Hello All,

    With Origins now having a pretty impressive lineup at this time; offering things like the beautiful SDCC boxed set, the amazing Lords of Power Set, LandShark (!!), a flocked Panthor (!!!) - Origins is really stepping into its own a bit from our beloved Vintage, NA, 200x, Classics figures.

    Big or small, clean or messy - please share pics of your hard earned Origins collection here!

    I will kick things off with this "family gathering" pic of my "one of every variation US collection".
    I tried hard to track down things like Man-E-Faces in his variations, color boots BA Deluxe He-Man vs the newer unpainted, the boxed sets, the "Art of design" Skeletor, etc.

    My display nook has spilled over to "completely unacceptable" in my garage area, so moving this soon.


    Wanted to share this unacceptable stock pile mess to kick things off!!!

    Thanks brother! I am struggling to find more space, Classics and 200x take up much of my footprint, I just didnt expect Mattel to deliver this much sweet loot this quickly.
    Its been sort of the hardest of the MOTU lines to secure in hand, but with the retail lock lifting from last year, BBTS has treated me very well - they are the only reason I have many of the newer waves, so my many thanks to them.

    You must live in a wormhole outside of time to have found every single thing, unpunched, some in multiples, that I have never seen on a store shelf or from BBTS.

    Well done, sir!
    THE VINTAGE-TO-CLASSICS COUNTDOWN IS COMPLETE!!!

    Much appreciated! It has been, a "character building journey". I love this line something fierce! I just want it to be actually distributed so that everyone interested can actually get them. I have hope that the line is doing well enough for Mattel, that perhaps all the seen logistical issues are related to COVID, that the timing there created something of a false start distribution wise. My hope is that we are just months away from seeing wave 2, 3, 4 actually make it to stores in such supply that scalpers, desperate collectors, (and even the now proven store employees) do not buy everything on sight in one purchase out of FOMO, since they are so very rare right now.

    However, I lived through the 200x collector years, and I don't wish that distribution pain destruction on this line, but it has me very worried.

    I spent so much time in july-dec 2020 creating mobile phone monitors, waking up at unforgiving times to a walmart.com email alert that a figure was in stock at MSRP, only to lose that many times if not reacting within a 30-60 second "sold out" threshold. I had to establish a "trading guild" in my town, and entice non MOTU fans with NECA TMNT, Marvel Legends, Star Wars or GIJoe classified, to trade my findings for their MOTU items they knew I was uniquely (among them) hooked on. In reality that does not work well with other MOTU fans, you have to join forces with the diligent but disinterested in competing with your own goals!

    BBTS, they have been "clutch" for me on the most recent waves, I am extremely loyal to them - and they take good care of me. Hang in there, if you pre-ordered with BBTS, you are in safe hands, the best hands for ordering figures online in my book.

    Doesn't look like variants. Looks like there are 3 because one of each face is visible?

    I guess he got lucky with MEF. I bought 2 from Walmart and 3 from BBTS and all of them had the human face

    Hey there! Only slightly, on a technicality really - just in packaging display of the 3 heads (Human/Robot/Monster); which was my weak justification at best to hunt more of one of my favorite down

    Had he only shipped with Robot face, that would be it and done. Due to the power of likely "random packaging chaos", if you can find the fella there are 3 faces in play available as sealed in box (which I thought was pretty cool!).

    I got super lucky with the first 2, which for me was one Robot and I think 2 monsters (I believe those rounds were via walmart.com in Aug 2020- availability was very volatile and for only minutes, if not seconds at a time) ...then I gave that one extra away to my nephew, and rolled the dice again on the very few times I was able to order him at MSRP. The human one for me actually was the hardest, and he finally landed with my last ditch effort via amazon!

    If was hoping this display would be enough room because I really thought mattel was not going to release this much for the line.

    I have everything except Keldor set, and Grayskull.

    Don't know why pics are flipped.

    Really nice score on the retail display! I was able to snag the top half of one but it got pretty banged up, yours is in amazing condition. Your collection setup looks outstanding.

    A mixture of He-Man and Zodac, and Mer-Man.

    Most of my Origins collection, shown without weapons and such. I also have a couple of loose Panthors, three Battle Cats (so I can have some modified Green Tigers), and four Sky Sleds.

    I also included some customized Origin figures with some MOTU Classics parts/heads or Masters of the WWE Universe parts.

    So, maybe even two days ago I claimed I had no interest in displaying my stuff in a different post. Then I got Castle Grayskull. This was too fun. I am by no means a toy photographer but admit childlike excitement at putting everything together. Everything is here except Prince Adam, Flocked Panthor (he's still boxed) and the base He-Man and Skeletor as I hate duplicating characters in scenes for some reason (I justify Keldor and Kronis by imagining that Evil-Lyn has conjured them from the past to join in).
