Wow, you got him fast! Makes me kind of wish I had tried to play the MOTUC lottery this month. I like the third pic where it looks like Skeletor is about to fall over in shock at Moss Man scratching Battle Cat's headPosted Image

I'd still prefer a partially flocked (like here and there, not just unflocked at the joints) or entirely unflocked Moss Man. Nostalgia is a silly reason to ruin a great sculpt. That 200X head is outstanding.

In all seriousness, that is part of why I didn't bother this time. I thought there was supposed to be a version that would be flocked only where there was fur originally sculpted on the Beast Man body. I admit I lost track of what they were doing with Moss Man, but I would have preferred that version.

i don't know. I really like that they flocked, I'm sure it helps the pine smell stay.

I've never really thought about it much. Stinkor stank, and he wasn't flocked, so I dunno.

I got my email shipping confirmation from DR today the 16th. WOW! that was fast since the sale was yesterday. My UPS tracking number shows my UnFlocked Ears Moss-Man & Stratos will arrive on the 22nd @bounce@

Digital River really seems to be cranking the orders out for shipping quickly this time. I have to give them credit this month for that :D

I tried the UPS trick with my Order Number just for fun and my mouth hung open when it generated a UPS Tracking number for my Package. So far billing info received on 3-16-2010
I might end up receiving my Moss-Man & Stratos by Friday this week or Monday the latest :D

Digital River really seems to be cranking the orders out for shipping quickly.

I received a shipping confirmation very early his morning, but it was actually shipped out yesterday. It's almost as if Digital River is a real-life digital commerce company.

But hey, whatever happened to Matty's note that the shipment was delayed and we'd all be waiting around for Mossy to get mailed out? Are they playing psychological games with us? Like, "we'll tell the fanbase about this lengthy delay, and then there will be no delay ... and it'll be as if we exceeded expectations this time!"

Nah, too far fetched even for Matty. Maybe.

Mine's arriving Monday and I can't wait. Never liked the flocked ears version and judging with all the pics, the unflocked ears looks a lot better. :D

Got mine yesterday. That evergreen scent is really strong but now it seems to stabilize as its been out for 24hrs now. I really dig the non-beast alternate head. The flocking added to the figure is really great and seems to last and will not shed.

Best figure to date so far. Old school scent/gimmick, old beastman head along with a new 2002 head, and flocked. Kick ass figure.

Yeah, until all these quick sellouts, I think they'd planned to do an unflocked version as a re-release. Now they probably won't, which is a total bummer. Moss Man looks like a stuffed animal to me. :(

Didn't Matty post when they reissue Moss-Man they will do both versions? Flocked ears and unflocked.

They did announce they'll be doing both flocked ear and unflocked ear Moss Man reissues, but I think Eric means completely unflocked. I'm not sure a completely unflocked reissue was ever a possibility, though. ToyGuru/Matty have stated that they want the reissues to be identical (except for "corrections") to their original releases. I think the only time a completely unflocked Moss Man was in the cards is when Matty announced they were having issues with the articulation of the completely flocked Moss Man, and they asked for fan opinion on how best to proceed. They gave a few options - completely unflocked being one of them, but partially flocked ended up winning out.

Got my Moss-Man & stratos today. Had to call DR customer service to get a replacement on my Moss-Man as he arrived with a detached left leg just below the hip area. I tried snaping the leg into the peg socket but it wouldn't stay. so customer service said not to worry thay had extras for replacement.

Customer service issued me a ticket number and told me I would be contacted by email in 24 hours with instructions on what to do with the damaged moss-Man and when my replacement figure would arrive. This was my very first damaged figure so I'm not upset about it as these things happen at the factory and they are going to replace it.

I have to admit though for the short time I had him out of the box my room smells pine fresh :) The flocking feels strange too when you hold him, I'm not used to that , but he looks fantastic with the 200x head.

So what happens when you have a damaged figure, do you have to send it in & waste $ on shipping ?..
