    Anyhow, I was suppose to receive my Target exclusive today, but Fedex had a different plan in mind and delayed it without a good explanation! Sigh...

    Got the Target three-pack today. Love the colors. Had NO clue Sun-Man and Space Sumo shared the same head sculpt in this! I wish Space Sumo had another weapon, but all in all I like this set a lot. The cards they come with are fun, too.

    Was that the curse that stripped him of his melanin?

    Yes this is an offical mini-comic:

    The Sun-Man toy line is only one retelling of the Sun Man story. In the classic Sun Man and Sun People story, itís Cube Face and the Cube Faced people who are the main antagonists.

    iirc, Space Sumo is literally from Earth. Bolt Man too. Sun Man himself is from Trefixa, but a lot of his friends are Earthlings

    Latest Minicomic implied that Digitino is now from Trefixa which suggest that all of them are. But I'm sure that Space Sumo mini will clear things up.

    I think Pig Face from the ROS 3 Pack looks so much better with metallic paint detail.

    The head sculpt for Sun Man is great. It would've been so awesome if they also gave him metallic paint detail, similar to the exclusive.

    Space Sumo is a decent figure and I take back any initial negative critique.

    Agreed on the metallics on Pig Head. Definitely will be my default in my display. Space Sumo is great in-hand. The only thing I'm worried about is if the exclusive single-carded version (they did say that was coming, right?) might have an exclusive mini-comic and make me buy him again.

    I think I might skip on Space Sumo as a MC Exclusive. I'd need a big incentive to get him.

    I... Think he lost quite a bit more than just his colour.

    Sun-Man (Rulers of the Son) joins MOTU !!!!

    The 3-pack is on sale for $34.99 at Target.com and that price ends Saturday. Iím sure you could contact customer service for a price adjustment if you already bought one.

    Yeah, that one's a head scratcher if it's just the exact same figure to be found in the Target 3-Pack but with a comic and fancy packaging. Hoping he ends up having metallic paint apps, and extra weapon... or... something, anything really.

    It's an easy way to explain why they look exactly like us. Humans have been part of MOTU from the very beginning. Queen Marlena is from Earth, and one of the early origins stories for Tri-Klops, Beast Man and Evil-Lyn was for them to be Marlena's astronaut crewmates.

    Personally I really like the connection, since as a kid it made me feel that I could actually go to Eternia. It made it seem more like a real place, and not some far away fantasy land that didn't really exist.

    They never made literally the same figure twice, there has to be some difference.

    Wh n is he coming out anyway? This month, next?

    I can't recall if they mentioned when the release date would be for this one. I would imagine probably mid-November? I can't see them putting Eternia up for pre-order AND asking anyone to buy... Space Sumo in the same time period.
    I would guess Space Sumo in November, Kamo Khan in January after the holidays and closer to when the Snakemen start hitting retail.

    i called for an adjustment and they wont adjust preorder items. when i said ill just return the item i ordered for full refund and place a new order to get the discount they said fine, we will offer a one time service adjustment but its against policy. talk about some terrible customer service. in the end i got it but my item literally just arrived yesterday and they are questioning when i ordered. not my fault you couldnt fulfill the order sooner. so be prepared to argue with them if you call. but hey $15 is a another new figure so worth the hassle. also takes 5-7 days to receive the refund.

    That's a bummer, but I'm sure they have the policies for a reason. I just bought Masterverse She-Ra and Hordak earlier this week and since it was in stock they honored the price adjustment.

    If the online agents wonít budge, I wonder if itís possible to just buy the set in store and then return it maybe next day using the online receipt?

    You don't have to wait for the next day. You could do this same day.
