  1. Finally, I'm tired of searching the same old WM's for all my Origins figures. After what Kevin Smith did with Masters of the Universe my only interest is in the Origins line. I was fortunate enough to get Man-E-Faces, Scareglow, Trap-Jaw and Orko (RIP), but that's cuz I was literally there when they put them out. And for any of you wondering what the crate ratio is on these guys, it's the same old Mattel BS, 1 "other" character to every 3 (or even 4) He-Man or Skeletor in each wave. At least they've changed it to including only He-Man or Skeletor per wave instead of both (I think). Still, that's not saying much. Get 'em while you can guys, cuz from the looks of things they're headed in the same direction as He-Man 200X.
  2. There are some cool character designs, but He-Man's dead, they turned Teela into some self centered, irrational, angry jerk and Orko was the blood sacrifice for Kevin Smith. If this is really what Mattel had in mind then I'm glad I passed on the first wave. RIP Masters of the Universe as we knew it. Anyway, Origins have become what we always wished they were as a kid, I'll stick with them where He-Man lives, Teela is still cool, and Orko is still the adorable loser that everyone loves to hate.
  3. Still not worth my time until they get their ankle articulation lined out. Add swivels or hinges to arms, elbows, wrists, thighs, whatever. The only unforgivable these days is the lack of ankle pivot. Not the only reason they don't get my money, but one of the main ones.
  4. They are being made more available at the WM in my area as well, but they are still selling pretty well. Haven't seen any legit peg warmers yet.
  5. Might be old news, but Firefly went back up on Target website, if anyone is still looking.
  6. Hurry up guys. I finally got my Baroness. Only Firefly continues to evade me. Damn, this has been freakin' exhausting. It used to be one of my go to stores, but now I'm really starting to hate Target.
  7. Looks like ole Tri-Clops got a pretty significant overhaul. But I guess that's the entire point of a "Masterverse" where they can basically pull any version of a character or alternate version of a character and turn it into action figure goodness. It's good for the longevity of a toy line. That is assuming Mattel can manage to avoid the same mistake of packing He-Man, Skeletor, and now Teela (I guess) at a rate of 4 to 1 over any new characters, which is what ruined the 200X line. From the looks of the way the Origins line is being distributed I'm not gonna hold my breath. This is such a hard line not to get into, but I'm gonna have to resist picking it up. Had it been in scale with at least the MOTUC line I woulda been sold.
  8. That's great for all the people in the cool club. Any news for when us normies are gonna get a shot? So true. They saw us coming before we even woke up this morning.
  9. Damnit! Got Beachhead, but Firefly still escapes my grasp. This isht is freakin' killing me.
  10. It never went up for sale that I could see and I was on the site refreshing at 9 am sharp. Is there a difference when the site says it's "sold out" (TM Kevin Smith) or if it still lists but says it "unavailable at this time", cuz I've seen both? Guess I'll continue to check till the damn thing comes off the site. Maybe lightning will strike and I'll get mine.
  11. I saw that too in my area. It's weird. It's almost like they went right off of Walmart shelves straight to Target's clearance section.
  12. Damn, that's a lot of pictures of a dog. Are they making a calendar? Hopefully that movie based Snake Eyes is a lot taller than the regular version. If not, Breaker's gonna be even smaller than the Flint figure. I thought Marvel Legend's scale was all over the place. This line doesn't even know wher it's scale starts or ends. Otherwise these guys look pretty cool. Got lucky enough to land both Breaker and Barbeque on pre-order, but didn't bother with Snake Eyes as I won't be partaking in what looks to be another box office bomb anyway.
  13. I'm living for the day that those figures from G.I. Joe Classified: Cobra Island are no longer Target exclusives.
  14. Not surprising that Dougray isn't a fan either. This is turning out to look like a mad scramble to save a show that wasn't any good to start with. Let it go and start putting effort back into building up the DCEU again with shows like Stargirl and Supeman & Lois, though I think it's more likely that instead of doing more shows like that they'll just end up making those two shows more like this.
  15. Mine too. Even though I'd heard it being spotted on several occasions, this thing just popped up outta nowhere in an unrelated endcap and caught my by surprise, even though there was a specific Masters area. Alas, even though it looked cool, and it actually was priced at $30, I had to pass. Seeing reviews of the other figures, these things look fantastic, but they are at a strange scale that's even out of most 7" scales. I was more hoping they'd fit in with my 6" collections or at least the MOTUC or Ultimates lines. Good on Mattel for the added value though, cuz these things are massive and that Skelegod even more so. I just don't see myself starting a collection in yet another scale. Won't be watching the show cuz Kevin Smith screws up EVERYTHING that isn't his own creation and he proves it once again, but this is looking to be a solid toyline. I hope Mattel doesn't screw it up again by insisting to include at least one version of the main characters in each series and then go on to pack them at a 4 to 1 rate like they did to the 200X line. That was a great line and it was so heartbreaking to see the droves and droves and droves of He-Man and Skeletor clogging up the shelves until the line died, never having gotten those versions of Clawful and Clamp Champ and soo many others
