    I've seen vintage MotU weapons and other accessories on Ebay, though they are usually prohibitively expensive for what they are.

    I have a few in storage. Looks like I’m going hunting.

    I like my Heman with sword,axe, and shield(I rotate it) but that axe is just blah.

    Found a sweet haul at my Target in NH today. This is the first time I have seen the landshark in stores.

    I don't recall but it wouldn't surprise me.

    Glad to see Targets gonna have the vehicles. They should’ve just had a blanket shelf setting for vehicle and beast but one of the bigger Targets that reset have separate spots for WR, Landshark, Panthor & BC. I’ll be happy when the Space Jam 2 trash goes on clearance and away.

    Kind of blue ball but also good week for MOTUO hunting for me. My go to Wally had the toy pallets out last night before 9. They show Grayskull on clearance for $56 but I’ve never seen one there but they did have them a few times. Seen 2 boxes on top of the pallet, picked up the pace to get over there and the boxes were empty...... whoever got them took time to close the boxes back up and put them back on the pallet. No one stocked them but I still strolled through the dept to make sure. A Target had the Warriors bundle in stock but they said it’s street dated for 8/1 which I never seen as is people are buying them left and right. I’ll keep looking. Got my set of wave 2 delivered from BBTS. I snagged a cancellation about 4:30 am one morning. Super busy with work so they’re still sitting on my desk til I can open them when I got a day off.

    I did catch Revelation a few times though. I’m in the camp of leaning toward liking it. I’ll wait til I watch all of it before final judgement but I like a lot of things I seen. The writing on Teela was terrible, almost as bad as the newer DC comics. I don’t mind her being the focus as she’s been a mainstay since the first mini comics back in 82. The good, all those little Easter eggs and stuff we’ve never seen done like the Eternia Towers, Man At Arms being a complete bad ass, Scareglow, hell the whole of episode 5. The controversy surrounding the show is nutcase. I knew a few people I sub to would do a few videos but damn, everyone’s doing vids on it and some are up to 5-7 long vids about it. On the flip side, people are talking about MOTU again.

    You bet. You can request editing privileges through the sheet…the system will send me an email which I will then approve. OR, let me know what products you’re interested in and I’ll add you to the sheet myself!

    I found Battle Armor Skeletor, if you cut that back part off of his shield the open hand holds it nicely.

    Now I need a Prince Adam Sword or He-Man axe to paint

    There are 3 different standard heads. The 2 smiling ones only come with the deluxe Buzzsaw version.

    I like the standard (vintage style deco) on the right side of my picture.

    Not going for any Hordak myself, but the large red eyes and grey face details on the deluxe Buzzsaw version do look the best of the different face variations.

    Stinkor preorder randomly cropped up at 4am... for some reason... on BBTS so grabbed that to go with the Webstor I'd already ordered, so I'm all set until next wave, woo.
