    Ebay:
    I was able to 2-part epoxy and super glue it back together. Not ideal, but I figure as long as the head isn’t swapped a lot, it’ll work for display purposes.

    Entertainment earth tried to charge my expired credit card for snake mountain this morning. Looks like it’s time for me to come up with the $725.

    Yeah, I think mine came out to around $750. Did the shipping end up being cheaper through Entertainment Earth? Its been forever since I ordered it, but I was thinking that I went with them because the shipping was supposed to be less than through Super7. Granted with anything that big, I understand it’s going to be pretty expensive to ship.

    I would think quite a lot. Just checking the completed auctions on eBay, it looks like a couple in sealed boxes went for over a thousand dollars each, recently. Both of those I believed were in sealed boxes, but not in unopened mailer boxes.

    about 10mins ago Walmart.com had Scare Glow in stock for $36.00 but sold by Walmart.
    I thought it was a error since Walmart sells at retail. I added figure in cart, same price
    Before I can call Walmart and ask them why the high price, figure was sold out
    And WM also selling Orko for $35

    I dont follow MOTU and only figure I want is Scare Glow.
    So, not sure if this a common practice by Walmart to sell items above retail costs.
    But does anybody know if Scare Glow or this assortment has a SKU?

    Yeah Walmart has basically begun to scalp their own products. It’s been noticed the past few weeks. Crazy. I saw it maybe twice online for retail and I didn’t have the money at the time.

    I hope wave 2 is open everywhere next year. It was enough of a pain to track down wave 1.

    To anyone that's getting your Snake Mnt other than Super7 when you get it you might have plastic corners like mine from Super7. Plus the Snake Mint IS DOUBLE BOXED so YOU WILL NEED HELP getting it out. I didn't have help cause I'm single now. But I would advise you have a GF/Wife or friend/buddy to help you. I've had mine since November 12th from Super7. I have a few small rips on side trying to store just the actual box not the cardboard boxes but I'm using those to compact my collection so I have room for Snake Mountain. You will greatly be amazed at how big Snake Mountain really is. I don't have enough room to leave out of box but GET READY its HUGE trust me. I've got to repair a few spots on my retail box but trust me you won't want to get rid of that box besides the cardboard boxes I'm sure alot will dump.

    Have we seen anything else at all about the Masterverse figures yet?
    Swear it was months ago we first heard about them but all I've seen is an accidental Mossman leak

    I wrapped a plastic band from figure packaging around his mouth and he sat in a storage container for several years. The result is a substantially closed mouth. I am sure heat could have sped it up too. Either way I think it’s a tremendous improvement.

    My Snake Mountain from Entertainment Earth arrived today! The missus is insisting that I wait until Christmas to open it, but in the meantime, I have a gigantic cardboard box to admire. Lol
