    Like I always say: Origins has generally "standardized" characters with distinct bodies.

    I'd be thrilled if Titus and Megator just came on triple sized Origins bucks with unique boots, belt, chest overlays/armor, and heads and then Mattel could get the semi-commercial option to also release an 18" He-Man and Skeletor on the bodies. That feels like something you could flood a Walmart endcap with at Christmas.

    Yeah, because all of the remaining vintage figures are MC exclusives.

    Was the vintage Tytus’ neck swivel cut really at an angle like that? What an odd choice!

    I guess they were bigger then 12". I agree about they could share a base body. Watched a review and while they seem to actually be different bodies, they still do the furry underwear thing so except for the heads & add-on armor bit, they are pretty close to the same. I wouldn't fault Mattel for using the same body, arms & legs on both of them.

    Good idea about releasing an oversized He-Man figure. I'd say a Skeletor as well. But that's it. No need to do the line over at 18" :D

    Nothing like having to pay close to $30+ (figure, tax, shipping) each for a bunch of leftover D listers. MC really needs to release a few figures at once so they can be combined shipping.

    You'll get no argument from me on that, but after yesterday's trip to the only Target and the last Walmart that carried Origins, everything except for Target deluxe ToG is online exclusive for me. All that could change during the next round of resets but for now I'm screwed.

    Kinda surprised nobody is talking about the Demogorgon set going up in the middle of the night and selling out.
    Stranger Things Action Figure Set - 2pk : Target

    I was blessed that my 2 year old's sleep regression kept me up till 5 in the morning.

    I would not be worried about it. I can't think of any MOTUO Target exclusives that I have not been able to find in stores. Here are some examples:

    Rise of Evil 2-pack (Keldor & Kronis)
    Battlefield Warriors (Battle Armor He-man & Battle Cat)
    Rulers of the Sun 3-pack (Pig-Head, Sun-Man, & Space Sumo)
    Rulers of the Sun 3-pack (Kikto, Holographo, & Zap-Man) - still in stock at my stores
    TOG Mouse-Jaw - still in stock at my stores

    Target seems to be pretty good at stocking their exclusives. I've seen all of them. Many hard to find at first but then end up sitting around. Mouse Jaw, Keldor/Kronos, Sun-Man 3 pack. All easy to get after time. Probably will be the same with Stranger Things.

    What the hell man. I had no idea.

    I'm not sure if I want to get it, I'd like the Demogorgon, but I don't need Skeletor in slightly changed colors.

    Looking at ratlor in hindsight is weird now that we have extender out there. They didn't want to do a pull ourlt neck because... reasons, yet extender manages to retain two pull out joints.

    I get the body types different, but then seeing extender kind of makes me think, really, you couldn't do a pull out neck?

    Is it wrong of me to kind of want to see him and the other guy redon with pull out necks?

    I mean, I'm down if we can also get a gimmickless Ram Man who can sit down.

    For Ratlor and Mecaneck, they should have had a body with a little dial on the back and extend the necks that way.

    With the neck replacement style they did, wish they had included a few extra neck pieces for extra long necks. Masterverse did it that way and i love it how long his neck is.

    It might have been because of his weapon. All I can think of.

    Here's his page on Battle Ram Blog. Tytus – Battle Ram

    You can seen the way they have his body positioned when holding his weapon and it looks like they might've wanted him to be looking down and to his left a little because his weapon is held in his right arm, which had an action feature.
