    It was bad for a while, but the last 6 months or so as long as you're there when it starts you should be getting a figure. They seem to be lasting over a half an hour now.

    Sweet!

    No delayed estimated release/"ship by date"?

    Mattel Creations has Extandar in-hand, and should be shipping soon?

    So UPS almost screwed me today. I ordered a Stranger Things Skeletor pack from Target the other day and it was supposed to be handed off from UPS to the Post Office for final delivery. UPS had other ideas it seems and they delivered it this morning with none of the trackers being accurate and my stuff was just sitting outside 40 minutes without me knowing. Thankfully they delivered it to the correct spot and I got the package before it was snatched.

    Thanks, UPS!

    I figured as much after he showed up at some even in Mexico.
    Ups-Man didn't ring the door bell or knock. They use to do then then sprint back to the truck.

    Wow, a half hour later and he’s still available… I never dipped into this wave of figures or beyond except for Rio Blast. The fact that no one would get me the Eternia Playset coupled with going all in on Tramsformers made me stop collecting MOTU, and I had EVERYTHING up until that point.

    When I said vintage figure, what I meant was a figure based on a vintage 1980's MOTU figure, not a figure based on a vintage comic, cartoon, etc. character that never had a toy back in the 80's. I should have been more specific. Thanks for the info, though.

    It's been my experience that the figures like Extendar, that are based on vintage 80's figures, are relatively easy to get. The obscure figures can sell out quicker. I suspect Mattel makes vintage figures in higher quantities.

    Two-Bad is rumored to be SDCC, which would be two months, I think.

    But yea, no vintage for a bit I guess. Realllly need Rio Blast and Dragstor.

    Just a weird thought.

    Are those Turtles of Grayshell figures using 5mm ports for the shells?

    I just had the weird thought that while Hasbro is rumored to be doing a MOTU vehicle or playset as a Transformer (probably in Transformers scale) maybe it would make sense if Mattel's contribution essentially had mini-cons that become a Power Sword and Havok Staff? Maybe stuff that centered on the robots of MOTU like Roboto, Sy-Klone, Faker, Multi-Bot, Horde Trooper, and Blast Attak getting Transformers personalities? Or a Stone-Dar/Rokkon style Optimus and Megatron?

    I keep forgetting how much guest stars get adapted to MOTU but rather than being "straight versions", I feel like we'd be likelier to see a Decepticon Faker or Rock Lords Bumblebee or mini-con Power Sword than the straight up Optimus Prime Battle Ram versus Starscream Roton. It'd be Origins centered and 5.5 figures probably.

    What was the last Creations-exclusive Origins figure to last an hour? First an exclusive Masterverse figure sells out, now this? END TIMES ARE NEARING!

    No, no knocking happened that I know of and we don't have a door bell. At least they follow delivery instructions without fail so that was the saving grace.

    Then Night Stalker.
    All we need for a MOTU x TF figure is Lio Convoy retooled into Battle Cat and a good mini comic to explain why.
