    Yeah, that part was super scary. I'd suggest hot water, nearly boiling, 180f, soak it for about 10 seconds and that should loosen it up enough to pull it free.

    Purchasing them is fine. It's actually getting the figures shipped from them correctly that is crap.

    Nope. They haven't even messaged me back since my last message to them where they said I just had to wait.

    The Walmart I have found other good stuff at before struck again, with a lone Krang still on the pegs, the only MOTU figure left as a matter of fact (plenty of Point Dreads on clearance on an endcap), meaning all the Moss Men and wave 7 hellspawn have finally vanished. I wasn’t originally going to touch this crossover at all and now I have Krang, Mouse-Jaw, and a Sla’ker inbound. Madness!

    Of note, I also found a single Superstars Andre the Giant. Face paint looked a bit meh so I ultimately put him back. Good consolation prize for someone else.

    I think that's just one reason I'd like at least one or two more waves of ToG. Mikey and Donnie deserve "normal" heads and not making a Foot Soldier was leaving money on the table.

    Mikey, Foot Soldier, Donnie and Karai

    Mikey has a normal head, though.

    I wanted them to release each turtle as a version of one of the 4 main he-man looks - Leo gets the classic outfit, Don gets Battle Armor, Mikey already has the flying fist armor and Ralph gets Thunder punch.

    Normal head, abnormal face.

    Anyway wave 6 idea.
    Ninja Man-at-Arms, Foot Enforcer, Raph, Mutant Faker (I know technically Sla'ker is a mutant Faker but I thought this would be a cool idea.)

    Better late than never. Upgrading these guys with current or upcoming releases so these can go. All are loose complete as-is except the unopened MC Tri-Klops, but that packaging is not mint.

    Minicomic Tri-Klops $90
    Skeletor/Keldor lot $20
    Beast Man $20
    LOP Mer-Man $20
    Evil-Lyn $15
    Trap Jaw/Kronis lot $25
    Webstor $18
    Spikor $20

    Yes Trap Jaw has all his parts, just the one on his arm got cropped out. Shipping’s extra but I’ll ship anywhere.

    EDIT: Whoops, not yet Whiplash! Where the hell is my Clawful…

    Saw on IG the Spikor wave is hitting Ross. It was:

    Serpent Claw Man At Arms
    Snake Man Infiltrator (the snake palace guard)
    Spikor
    Ssqueeeze

    I paid a tiny bit over retail to get Ssqueeeze on eBay, so hopefully can balance it out by finding the Man At Arms.

    Got my Turtles Beast Man today... I really wish they had given this Beast Man the Moss Man/vintage open mouth BM face. A missed opportunity if you ask me.

    Yeah, I can get behind that. It was a great window to make it a bit more unique of a release

    Finally found Krang and lucked on fresh case of ToG wave 2, so helped myself to Shredder. So glad to be done with this particular hunt.
