    Same. I just pre-ordered one of each as a backup. I'm sure I'll find them in store.

    Got the Motu/ST set and the Bebop and Rocksteady crossover figure.


    Now I’ll have a complete Metalboto after all my preorders ship out.

    Only interested in Vecna so I'll wait it out for some kind of in-store sale at some point.

    Yeah, I got the first pack for like 30% off and I think I'm the only one who bought one from my target. I'm not worried about this one selling out because a sale.

    I am interested in he-man though. I only have variants in my collection so having the base model would be nice. And I like his coloring better than the early releases.

    Would have liked to see the remaining Metal-Boto parts just to see if there was anything extra (probably not given the duo’s size) but great to see the last of the Target deluxes go up for sale and preorder mine (juuuuuust in case, I anticipate a sale at some point). Now Leatherhead is the only one I really have to worry about (I feel like I may skip Mer-Man now but TBD).

    It's miserable when you're on a strict budget... I'm gonna miss those pre-orders.

    Did you budget out to October already? That feels like a very hefty window of time if you’re concerned about availability. Also you’re probably safe to wait for both anyway.

    No, haven't gone out that far yet. That's the one saving grace is I think both will be available later, like you said. They cancelled my Splinter PO too so i'm already behind anyway. Oh well.

    At the time of the vote I was thinking I have to vote for the fright zone because it’s part of the vintage line and if I don’t it probably won’t be made at retail but now thinking back, i don’t think that was the right decision. I am now thinking considering how long it takes to get a new crowd fund from the next id rather not “waste” that time on a fright zone I’d rather they do the doom tower or something else for the next crowdfund. I’m fine with all future playsets being crowdfunds in fact I’d prefer it I’d rather have something big and grand then something that is “sellable” at retail. When you think about it the entire vehicle/creature released in origins has been kind of backwards. Mattel remade all the vehicles/creatures that are easy/cheap to find on the secondary market. They should have focused on the items that are hard to find, easily broken, and are the most expensive. I would gladly trade my origins Roton for an origins fright fighter.

    Splinter come with the body and maybe the feet. Leaving an arm and some attachments for 2-Bopsteady.

    I know that much, I was curious about the precise split of parts (or any unseen extra).

    I think I'll have mine next week. I feel like this review is kinda pointless as many Origins reviews it just becomes I like this new hat better. At least he kept it clean.
