    Bummed to see the WWE/MOTU line go. It was always fun combinations. I was hoping we’d get a Shockmaster with glittery Horde Trooper helmet, Crimson Fury-esque Iron Shiek or Songster type Honky Tonk Man. But at least they’re continuing with regular wrestlers. The Origins body is the Glyos system of regular action figures so glad it’s continuing. Sucks DC didn’t get a chance. I seen they’re making their old properties like Matt Mason, Big Jim and Pulsar into Secret Wars type figures but this would’ve been a better choice.

    Honky is a must get for me. I wound up at a Halloween party one year with Honky Tonk and Greg the Hammer Valentine and had lunch with Honky several times when he came to my town, he’s awesome. Hopefully we get an Iron Shiek in this line. I just recently found out about a Retrofest Shiek.

    I’ll wait if they do him. This is my one of my most wanted figs so I’ll try to make a Origins custom of him.

    For collection and financial reasons, I'm getting out of Motu Origins. Been fun but I realized Masterverse is a better fit for me.

    If anyone wants to help me offload my Origins stuff, I put them up on my ebay.

    As long as they are still in the same MOTUO body style, I'm fine with it as long as it gives me more of the wrestlers I knew as a kid.

    Is anyone else planning to use the rumored mini comic Stratos as a troop builder?

    @fschuler can you put me on the spreadsheet for the sgt slaughter wwe motu figure. I tried but I can't edit it. Guess I need permissions or something.

    Was there a max order limit for those MOTU WWE figures? They sold out so fast there has to be significant interest in the line. Shame to let it go.

    Missed the WWE wave… ah well, I was already resigned to paying aftermarket for Slaughter and Andre. I’ll add myself to the spreadsheet as well.

    Life is too busy (especially in the mornings), I can’t keep track of all these store-specific collector’s sales.

    I’ve been relatively successful in getting exclusives but I missed these by 5 minutes—- if possible, please put me down for all 4 WWEternia Wave 7 figures (and the Retro TMNT Party Wagon if that’s on the list). I’m also willing to pick things up for anyone who needs them.
