    Being that my "shipping notice" was a few days ago now and it still just says "lable created", this is following the sequence of events of when MONDO items are comming straight from china. Whenever I've gotten MONDO stuff from Austin TX, the tracking almost immidiately shows that the package has at least been recieved by the carrier. Again, it's been a few days and still no tracking info. Not a great sign. If this is direct from china and it is like other releases that I've gotten from china, then it may be 2 weeks or so before there is any tracking info. I am speculating... But yeah, so far, it is looking like Beastman is comming from china :(

    It's better to go through Mondo for these. They have Jubilee in stock, both regular (X-Men: The Animated Series - Jubilee 1/6 Scale Figure) and limited (X-Men: The Animated Series - Jubilee 1/6 Scale Figure Limited Edition). Shipping is free and the prices are the same (well, a penny more on Mondo).

    I was excited for this until I heard Pixel Dan say it would be $265. That's a mistake, right? I went back three times in the video to make sure I understood what he said clearly.

    I bought the Beast Man at $300, but I can't see 265 for a 5 POA, even a large, nice one.

    Edit: Just confirmed $265 on the Mondo website. I'm out. I can understand $500 Battle Cat and $300 Beast Man due to intricacy and soft goods, even if I still think those items were pushing it. I know Mondo runs high for what you get, but I literally thought $265 on Scare Glow was a mistake.

    Sabretooth arrived today and though I haven’t put him through the paces, my initial impression is he is everything I wanted him to be. Sure, these are basically upscaled action figures, but the cartoon look just slaps. He is huge/hefty, has the likeness I want, and poses well enough.

    I don’t have the space nor cash to fully go in on these in addition to everything else I dabble in, but I’m almost certainly in for Venom and am tempted by Gambit, Cyclops, and Spider-Man now!

    Got my final(?) Mondo MOTU figure today. Beast Man showed up after being delayed a day. I really hope it's not the last I can get but for now it is. Hopefully i'll be able to afford Teela when she shows up for PO, though. It'd be a damn shame to miss out on that one.

    Well mondo customer service pulled through with hopefully sending me a replacement arm for manbat. The process wasn’t great with nearly a dozen back and forth emails that took days for them to reply to each one when I sent my replies instantly and having to describe my issues in every email including the first….

    A few days is normal for any business that provides international product.

    It took about two weeks to resolve my Panthor issue. But in the end they basically sent me a second one (sans armor) for free. So now I have an armored Panthor and an unarmored Panthor for the cost of just one. Same with He-Man. Ended up with a second body for free an just popped the second head on it. So I don't mind a few days to get quality service.

    If there is a next time, send photos or a video. Then you don't have to keep explaining.

    thanks. I sent many photos a few times as well. It just felt like I was repeating myself two to three emails over what was necessary. Overall I’m happy to get the part replacement

    Looks neat but dont think I can justify yet another Scareglow just for the accessories.

    Since I missed the v1 and v2 Scareglow figs due to scalper sniping (kinda glad I did in hind sight) this v3 is looking pretty likely that I'll snag one. BUT... and this is a huge but... There are other characters I am more attached to. I didn't even know Scareglow exsisted as a character in MOTU untill MONDO showed their v1. I am much more wanting Teela and the eventual Goddess (not Sorceress but I think I might bite on that) and Evil-Lynn. Man-E_faces (come on, we already have the tool from the waist down from Trap Jaw), Ram-Man, Tri-Clops, Zodak and Stratos... That would finish things for me.

    Well made my final Orko payment. Finger's crossed we have at least a month break before they put up Teela.
