Also, you can't compare repainted robots in the Transformers line to repainted human-like characters in MOTU. Lol
    LOP Beastman has a different head and armour than standard Beastman.

    While I agree the figure is awesome, I'd argue that the original Mer-man figure, color and head sculpt, are iconic to many fans like myself.

    For a while, he was my holy grail figure.

    I like the two Mer-Men equally... he was always a favorite of mine when I was young, but I always wondered why he looked so different in promotional materials.

    I'm glad that we get both versions in the Origins style, and even better - we can mix 'n match to create the ideal version!

    LOP Merman is the only one for me. I hated the toy version always thought the cross sell art was a horrible tease of what could have been. Now we got it!

    I never had him as kid, but I always liked the Alcala version a bit more.
    But when I got the Origins standard version, I really came around to it. He’s just kinda bizarre and simple and primal and kind of great. Not so flashy… a true first wave MOTU figure!
    It’s so cool we have both versions.

    Yes!

    I swapped the armor on mine so that LoP Mer-Man has a bright yellow harness that matches his gloves n boots and regular Mer-Man has an outfit that actually makes him look more interesting!

    We still need a blue Mer-Man, like the prototype or the Alcala minicomic (they're slightly different):







    A proper cross sell Mer-Man would be nice too!

    Wow, that actually looks really good!!

    It's amazing how well the shade of yellow matches up!

    I like the Alcala/card back look but it’s not Mer-Man to me. After learning recently that Mer-Man was briefly a heroic warrior, I decided to buy him. Still trying to come up with a name for him…

    You could always go with his original name, Sea-Man.

    What, they were scared of potential trademark infringement? Did they not realise it's just an urban myth that Captain Pugwash had crew called Seaman Staines, Master Bates and Roger the Cabin Boy?

    So Mattel Creations just out notice for a DeLorean Hot Wheels set. It will have a preorder window. Maybe Grizzlor will have one too! But if not for him, maybe they'll do it this way going forward. From their website:

    The Hot Wheels x DeLorean DMC-12 & Alpha5 Collector Set is Made To Order and is available for purchase with NO PURCHASE LIMITS from 8/18 10:45am PT through 9/1 11:59pm PT. You may cancel your pre-order during the sale period by calling customer service. After the sale period ends, all sales are final.

    They'll make more money this way. It's really a no-brainer.

    I feel like I’m one of the few that doesn’t want more preorders that I have to wait a year plus for.

    Those pics have been floating around for a while now. I remember seeing them quite a few months ago on Facebook and IG. They are actually photoshopped custom figures and are not "leaked" photos of anything coming.
