    That's nice, but for a lot of us MOTUC might as well have never happened.

    Doesn't change the fact that Geldor has been represented as an action figure. Sorry if you missed out but no excuse to ignore the longest running and probably the best MOTU action figure line. I still find Classics superior to Masterverse.

    I didn't even know Classics existed before 2020.

    I think if I had known about it when they were new I would have collected Classics and then eventually Origins, and that's it. Those two lines are the pinnacle for me. While Masterverse does have some really good figures, Classics beats it hands-down (IMO) give or take a few figures. You can keep the Scott figure, though...

    Unless you are talking about playing a game of go fish or uno I think you are sharing to much.

    Its still on sale. Its officially the second worst selling Origins item (after the He-Man Through The Ages 4 pack)!
    I guess vehicles dont sell as well as figures? Or maybe its just not as exciting because its a simple repaint.

    Or because the market was so flooded with the first horse that they went to Ross for $6 or something like that. Throws a wrench in people's view when they bought the first one super cheap they don't see the value now.

    Though I doubt this will end up at ross because production numbers gor items this year seem to be screwed to lean on most things.

    Yeah that is likely a factor too. When you see Stridor clearanced at £5, its hard to feel good about paying £32 plus postage for a repaint.

    This wont end up at Ross, we have never seen MC Exclusives go to physical retailers for clearance.

    Im under no impression it was an expensive buy for what it is (arent they all ;) ). But Im a completest so it was a no brainer.

    I can't believe I'm on a Transformers message board and reading people bitching about repaints.

    Figures always sell better than vehicles. That's not unique to MOTU.

    It's more accurate to say that it's the second slowest selling Origins item, as we don't have production numbers. It's reasonable to think they made more of the He-Man 4 packs than they did of the three 2021 Power Con sets, for example.

    37 dollars an American dream mall. I'm completely uninterested, but it's interesting to see. The toysrus is clearly just filled with leftover stock 1000012409.jpg
    I also found Amazon exclusive and Walmart exclusive toys from a few years ago

    Cool. I thought it was too expensive when I got the horse for like 10 bucks, and honestly, the horse is the only cool one

    There's other motu stuff, but nothing really worth mentioning. If there had been snakemen, it may have been a different story lol
