    I just received the vintage head Skeletor from Deepdiscount.com. The card is in good condition so I may leave it sealed since I have the v1 Skeletor already opened. My vintage head He-Man shipped later so I'm still waiting on it.

    It's weird, I heart the vintage head He-Man way more than the Origins head version, but I prefer the Origins Skeletor head to the vintage Skeletor head.

    Maybe because Origins Skeletor reminds me of the Robot Chicken version.

    Filmation head overall, though. I'll pass on Vintage-Headed Skeletor, but I'd definitely pick up a Filmation headed version.

    I'm tempted to indulge in a vintage head for my He-man but really enjoy the Origins Skeletor's open mouth more. I feel like the open mouth can lend to different expressions akin to a Japanese noh mask.

    I've got no complaints about any of the head sculpts with the exception of Kronis. It doesn't photograph well and looks better in person but I think it's the weakest head sculpt of Origins thus far.

    I like the open mouth v1 Skeletor. He has a penchant for striking maniacal poses.

    Just got back from Target where they clearly put out more He-Man and Skeletor figures, but nothing else.

    Nice, I still need a Faker.

    Speaking of Origins, I raided my local toy store today...

    My Target has 2 MOTU peg hooks and both are filled with He-Man/Skeletor only. But like 7 Rise of Evil packs.

    Faker was created from existing tooling and a need to fill a "character space" in the line.
    I say you only need 1...
    and a Battle Armor version with the origins head sculpt...

    I kind of want the WWE Sgt Slaughter. But I really don't.

    Oh snap!

    He looks pretty sweet!

    I wonder if we'll get another fan vote soon? and isn't MattyCollector Defunct?

    I just got my first Motu figures ever, Man-E-Faces and Orko (didn't take any pics of him, I forgot to) IMG_20210719_183653.jpg
    They're pretty neat figures. Orko was a pleasant surprise and it's nice to have one of my favorite Heroic Warriors in the form of Manny. Had way too much fun with his gimmick.

    Triple-Faced character showdown!

    Also, did anyone had problems with spinning his faces? Suddenly about a dozen spins, it started squeaking on mine, plus the human face became stuck the most. It's not a huge issue if I'm having it on a display, but I liked how smooth his face change gimmick was.
