    Unfortunately on Snout SPout and Leech that I would like to take, as they have not arrived here in Europe and I do not know if they will arrive, the only shipping option is standard. So better not take the risk and let it go at this point.

    I also buy from BBTS from abroad, and have received many shipments from them in boxes containing multiple figures. I have never received a bad or damaged box and I only ever select standard grade. The card backs were always pristine for me.

    I have NEVER received an item from BBTS that had so much as a crease on it.

    They are very careful about how they pack their boxes and, if the situation arises, I'm sure that they would quickly rectify any damaged packages / items.

    I’ve also never had any issues with packaging from BBTS. I always buy standard grade and they always turn up pristine.

    Same here! Had trouble deciding on both figures which head to use. They all look good and the Leech suction cup face is pure nostalgia for me.

    The only problem I'm having is posing Leech on my Fright Zone playset. Those suction cup feet aren't as sturdy as I need

    Yeah, they really should have included alternate boots instead of alternate hands, just for practicality

    Thanks man. I just went on there and ordered Pig Head and Mantenna, plus Masterverse Trap Jaw is back in stock. I can't compel myself to by those ugly Origins versions of 200X He-Man & Skeletor.

    Let's not try and say that new Rulers of the Sun characters in Origins are in the same vein as repainted MOTU characters. I personally prefer getting new characters (whether original or licensed) than repainted characters or 200X versions of characters.

    People forget that in MOTU Classics, we got Orko with "Prince Adam action figure accessory" at the bottom of Orko's packaging. :-))

    So what about Green/Eternian Goddess? She's a repaint but also a new different character than Teela?

    I don't mind the repaints that are meant to be new characters like Faker and the Goddess, or Moss Man and Stinkor. But, I have issues with 200X He-Man & Skeletor, 200X repainted Evil-Lyn, and LOP Beastman & Mer Man. Also, you can't compare repainted robots in the Transformers line to repainted human-like characters in MOTU. Lol

    LOP Mer-Man is superior to regular Mer-Man in every way.

    The little tabs on Leech's suction-cups are distracting...

    I totally disagree. I'm not a fan of the "Vintage cardback" head sculpt of Mer Man. I hated that head sculpt in Classics and I hate it on LOP MM as well. Plus, I hate that Origins MM (regular or LOP version) don't come with a Trident.

    I agree, getting new character is way more exciting than a variant .In most of lines, i don't even pay attention to them. You did Batman, great, I don't need anymore Batman. Give me Robin, Batgirl, Alfred, villains...When cartoon does Riddler, I hope they do Mad Hatter next not that Riddler will return in new costume... That's how you get Batman Forever.

    The original figure didnt come with a trident. I dont remember him having a trident in the minicomics either.

    Im waiting for He-Bro to come up with cool customs. But I agree, the 200X X Origins merger sucks. Better get the genuine 200X figures that are still rather easy to obtain.

    Never said they were in the same vein, we were talking about risks at retail.

    1000% agreed.

    I am fine with repaints for the most part. The only way you'll catch me complaining is if the line ends before we complete the vintage line. And I'd be fine paying an extra couple of $ for, say, the Snake Men characters who are all unique bucks.

    The only repaint I haven't liked so far is Stratos, though I do have him. Don't know why... just doesn't appeal to me. If they released an alternate head, I'd buy 3 more for troop builders.
