    I can add back the furry undies but what color would you want the belt and jewels?

    Was opening my bounty from Friday when Target emailed me saying my Sla'ker had arrived. Naturally it hadn't arrived to my building, because the Sunday USPS crew is illiterate. I checked 4 of my neighboring buildings before finally finding it in a fifth. Anyway, Sla'ker is an impressively large figure with an utterly ridiculously massive head. He's quite freaky. His weapons can both store on his shell if you point them at each other, a nice touch.

    Of the Origins figures I've received in the past 2 days, here's how I'd rank them:
    1. TOG Sla'ker
    2. CC Mer-Man
    3. TOG Moss Man
    4. CC Stratos
    Also, both CC figures had hips that wouldn't move forward or back without some shock oil. I also hit up Rokkon's elbows while I was at it, those were scary.

    Gray belt to give the impression on the tunic hanging down past the belt. The fur part should be blue to match legs.

    Just what I was thinking. I'm only debating adding color to the jewels. I'll see if I can add the Skeletor forearm guards and MAA boots. Might not be possible, though.

    I'd rather a TOG Foot Soldier be done in the style of the Horde Troopers

    In dire search for these because my Walmarts are just a sea of Jitsu wave and nothing else. Please help me out. I'll pay for shipping.

    I just don't see the Horde Trooper being ninja.

    As near as can tell they've shown up in exactly 2 Walmart's so far. And that's only because you have a new picture there. Practically no one has them yet, be patient.

    But the foot soldier ARE often robots like the troopers.

    15 bucks was not bad for this one

    I agree, I'd just have it be a new build that fuses the Horde Troopers and the Foot Soldiers .

    Is this if the swords aren’t inserted all the way(like past 1 of the serrated “teeth” and form a “V”)?

    Personally I think the Ninjor/Slamurai body style route would be the way to go just on aesthetics alone. They're already basically all the way there in looking like Foot Clan soldiers with no tooling required. Which I think was Smitty's goal when he started parts swapping.

    Horde Troopers might be good as Triceratons but I doubt they'd get to them.

    Yeah. The horde trooper is already with slimmer legs, just make a new chest that's slimmer and more ninja like but keep the characteristics of horde, maybe a domed head like horde but with the eyes of foot clan, and give it ninja weapons.

    I'd dig it

    They had a stack of them at my target today. I'm going to wait for clearance on it though, all I want is the Demogorgon and I'm not paying $40 for it.

    Yup, like pretty much all MOTU exclusives, this will be easy to find eventually. Can't think of one that wasn't hard to get. Just have to wait a few weeks. Remember how we didn't see the 2nd Sun-Man 3 pack for the longest time? We'll now they are roasting the shelves. While I don't advise people to play Clearance Chicken, many of these exclusives have gone on sale.

    I'm willing to play chicken on the stranger things set, mostly because I just don't see it moving much. Things like Sla'ker and Krang are a different story.

    Yes but you shouldn't insert one sword any further than that anyway because it's too close to the shell, the hilt will bend even further than it already has to just to get one in there.
