    The internet is a tough but honest environment.

    I've had the same issues, though lately some WalMarts around me have had more variety, though I've yet to seen an He-Man in person (a friend found one for me in his area) and a few are still full of Skeletors, but it does seem to be getting better if my area's an indication. Though I have yet to seen any of those end-cap displays either. My only hope for those is if some stores are holding those over for holiday shopping.

    They said, "next year" I believe during the PowerCon interview. Amazon and Target already have listed some items for release this year so, could be as early as next month, maybe.

    So far it seems like stores are only putting in any real effort in Mexico and South America.

    Is Masterverse believed to be in the same scale as MOTU Classics? Bigger? Or unknown at this point?

    I wonder if She-Ra is going to have the same diaper-butt as Teela?

    I'm here in the UK and just got my hands on Skeletor and He-Man. Dunno if it's been noted in the thread here, but firstly and weirdly, one mini comic has the title on the front and the other one doesn't. And secondly, presumably because of the tri-language (or however many languages our toy packagings have to have on them now), the comic has the dialogue removed apart from the laugh and sound effects that don't really need translating. I mean it's still possible to understand the story, but it's a bit of a bummer.

    That's funny. When I saw Teela I thought "huh, what diaper?" then I looked at the photo of the baby and thought "ah, now I see it"
