I can't wait for this to show up!
Opened and had a good once-over of deluxe He-man last night. Happy to report only one slight problem so far; the back-of -shield insert isn't glued in very well and is already pulling out almost halfway. Nothing that some glue won't fix, while echoing that at these prices we shouldn't have to be fixing things (and I paid an extra $80 in duties when he arrived, so he's even more expensive now). Not really worth making a claim for something that should be easy to repair, and mine has no looseness in the waist connection so that seems like the only flaw.
Really liking the use of magnets on the armour and "H". Had to watch a review video before I started pulling at the regular harness straps to make sure I wasn't pulling on the wrong parts. It's a little funny that all three harnesses use a different method of connecting, but each works well all the same. TP shield seems a little too heavy for the arm and keeps dragging it down, but I think it's to be expected. Hands and heads all plugged in fine, everything seems to be in working order. Really like the small touch of glitter in the reds of the TP outfit for the added shimmer. Battle Armour is probably the look he's going to stay in, but TP is so good that I wish I could afford extra bodies to get them all showing.
Can't wait to get him paired up with Battlecat whenever he gets delivered! I'm also going to have to swing back around at some point and try to get a She-Ra after Skeletor and Panthor.
Since that He-Man and Skelly have their felines to go with them, there's a good possible chance that She-ra will get SwiftWind.
Any word if there’s still a more “stripped down” version of BA He-Man coming down the pike at some point? If I recall there was talk of one that would have the Battle Armor but leave off the Thunder Punch armor…?
Also, does “timed edition” Battle Cat mean there will be a future re-release of that as well?
If you can’t tell, I’m finding myself somewhat regretting not ordering those two, haha.
From all the promo shots they showed only the regular harness and not the battle armor. From what I understood the Thunder Punch was the only one that was exclusive to that time window deluxe version. But who knows.
Battle Cat I think was only for that ordering period.
Cool, thanks for the info! It’s… probably just as well, haha.
At the last DesignerCon in the Mondo panel, their wording implied, to me, that there will be a non-deluxe version of Battle Cat, eventually. They said something like, this deluxe version will be a limited, timed exclusive… I might be reading into the statement but, I don’t see why they would miss the opportunity to make more money.

BTW, I also have contacted them about my He-Man's waist problems and all that but has anyone here been contacted yet about putting in an order for the replacement body?
Cool, thanks! I’ll be keeping an eye out for it just in case… If it never shows up it’s fine, but if they ever re-release it I’ll probably jump on board this time around.
HOLY CRAP... I wasn't expecting a whole replacement body. Frankly, I wasn't certain just how they were going to accomplish this... I already have my $50 gift card and will use it on their next release.
My figure seems to be fine at the waist. Getting a whole replacement body really would help to display the multiple looks the figure has.
Mine is not "broken"... Just that the waist joint detaches REALLy easy. Like one finger easy. Don't even try turning the waist. Just falls off. I hope that they will replace it even though it is not "broken". I seem to be on the list.
Wouldn't be better to just send a replacement to all who ordered it?
From Mondo Twitter - Firecracker (Wolvie's nick name for her) is up for grabs on Tuesday!
Never thought of or noticed before but that pic of Jubilee reminds me of a certain sidekick...
Just got notice to confirm shipping of the new She-Ra head. Check your emails if you ordered her.
Also, this Jubilee purchase couldn't have come at a worst time for me. Really want it, but might have to skip it.
Got the same notice for She-Ra today. Now to wait for the e-mail about my replacement He-Man body.
Was there a cut-off for He-Man? I still haven't hcecked the waist on mine.
Figures are up:
X-Men: The Animated Series - Jubilee 1/6 Scale Figure
Jubilee Limited Edition
X-Men: The Animated Series - Jubilee 1/6 Scale Figure Limited Edition
X-Men: The Animated Series - Magneto 1/6 Scale Figure
I don't think so but i'd check your figure ASAP if I were you. I know some people have already gotten their orders in for the replacement body but i'm in the group that will likely have to wait for the next batch. But yeah check him over as soon as you can and get your claim in if you need it.
