    Dude, I'm Scott's number one detractor and told him so. So don't even peddle that bullshit.

    I've not seen an official source that says that. For what it's worth, in Pixel Dan's SDCC video, Dan himself goes back and forth with calling the Cartoon line "Origins." So even he was confused about the naming convention, and he was standing in front of a Mattel rep.

    Got an easy fix to this weird discussion, though it might not have an answer for months until release or at least samples start appearing - what's the back of the cards say? It's not like the word "Origins" is used on the card front, but the blurb on the back says so.

    In the spirit of more fun discussion, the studio series Junkions bikes are the perfect size for origins figures.

    Makes sense as average Deluxe class figures should be close to Origins in height.

    And today I am delighted - I've received the e-mail with my tracking number. Of course it won't actually move for the first week or more (what exactly is it that Landmark does in that time?), but still - on the way :)

    Holy crap, I think I might actually be able to breathe a sigh of relief now. There's been an update on the tracking for my replacement Grizzlors!
