    Yeah, that's okay because i'm not too thrilled with them anyway.

    Looks really good! I like how they integrated the handles in the top section the "way it's supposed to be". Unlike the weird handles coming out of the section like on the Origins version.

    I still haven't heard anything about Rogue shipping. Hope they didn't oversell. I've been thinking of cancelling some BBTS preorders if I could trust Mondo to deliver.

    If they were going for more bone color for the bones, wonder why not for the bones on the Havoc Staff?

    Just ordered an extra She-ta to go with the timed edition I already have.


    Nothing else she should go up in value later on

    I was able to lock in a preorder for mini-comic trap-jaw on bbts last weekend. I’m not too familiar with the character but this combination of color and design made this a very interesting looking figure. I had no interest in the standard version but this one speaks to me.

    Got my shipping notice for Rogue, so it looks like they're finally going out!

    Turtles again? I really can’t afford to get sucked into another Mondo line. Unless these turn out to be amazing, I’ll just stick with the original releases.

    Oh brother, this stupid Rogue figure is shipping from Dongguan in China. Apparently DHL got the shipping info April 30th but Mondo didn't get around to telling me it had shipped until May 17th (Friday). Looks like no progress in those three weeks so that's super duper awesome. No wonder BBTS doesn't have Jubilee or Harley Quinn in stock yet.

    Same and same. Did they do this with any of their other releases? Seems really odd to me. I only ordered Gambit and I don't recall this being the case. I'd figure they would get them in hand and then process shipping. Lol. Now it feels like a guessing game as to when she'll arrive and in what condition.

    Yeah, this has happened with a few Mondo figures that I've ordered. I'll get a shipping email from Mondo, then check the tracking to see that it's coming from China. There are no updates for a while and then it's suddenly going to be delivered. I definitely prefer the ones that ship directly from Mondo HQ in Texas...

    That being said, the ones that have arrived from China have so far been in good condition - no smashed boxes yet!

    Just had a message from Mondo that they might have painted all of the default Rogue heads eyes slightly too far apart so could need to send replacements.

    Early reviews are showing a lot of paint artificacts and line bleeding too.

    Hmm clearly the $230 doesn’t stretch to a quick QA before they leave the factory.
