    Does anyone know how Mattel Creations' cart system works? Can an item sell out if it's in your cart?

    Am I understanding it right that the comics Triklops is on the website? I'm guessing I may as well not even try.

    I guess that's accurate. I don't know why I was thinking that Flying Fist He-Man was gold vac metal.

    I hope Flying Fists He-Man and Terror Claws Skeletor come with as least one new head. It looks like Skeletor does but the images they've shown of He-Man show him with the same heads as the Battle Filed Warriors set.

    Man, was reading through a Twitter thread about Sun-Man and it was a bumpy ride. Mostly just people being confused about his origins and how he fit in with MOTU, a few saying essentially “why do we need him when we have Clamp Champ?” (facepalm), and one winner of a dude even saying “Sun Man will never be MOTU!” (triple facepalm).

    Aaanyway, I’m looking forward to him, and just hope they are making enough of them that everyone who wants one gets a fair shot at ordering it tomorrow morning. Gonna be tricky with both that and Tri-Klops going up. My fear is that I will manage to get one into my cart, and then it’ll sell out when I try to go get the second. :p

    Yeah, we have some real winners on Twitter sharing their opinions.

    I hope you secure both Sun-Man and Tri-Klops. At least Sun-Man will be getting a retail release later on.

    the things on the back of flying fists and terror claws, are they part of the action feature?

    I'm a bit surprised that we haven't highlighted some of the really important news out of PowerCon. They went out of their way to dispel the persistently swirling rumors.
    • No, MotU Origins will not be ending next year. (unless I suppose the sales just completely crater)
    • No contrary to what some MotU "experts" have stated on social media, Mattel is not losing the Masters of the Universe property or toy license.
    I still find it especially hilarious that people believed the latter. :D

    Looks great and will look even better next to my Leo Faker and Duplicat set.

    Tomorrow I’ll try for in order
    Tri-clops
    Sun-man
    Another Leo Fakker set
    Greyskull set

    I’m not to worried about the con exclusives since I already have them on preorder at bbts, but if I can get them at the cheaper price then that’s what I’ll do.

    Yup, thanks guys! I read about the retail Sun Man, but I was under the impression that this was a deluxe version (presumably with extra bits) and that wasn’t? Is that wrong, though, will it be the same version?

    Masterverse Scareglow is essentially the same release as retail and exclusive so I believe the actual Sun-Man figure will be the same as retail, just packaging. If they can drop a paint app they might but there isn’t a lot there anyway.

    Good call, I hope that’s the case as well.

    He might fallow in She-Ra's foot steps and have a different head. Procrustus knows the vintage Sun-Man has plenty to pick from.

    The retail release won’t have the extra head or fire effect for his club, it will just be a regular non deluxe version.

    Man I really want that Horde set but I’ve got a work meeting at the same time. Here’s hoping I don’t accidentally screen-share or something while I’m frantically trying to order.

    At the Powercon Saturday they said that the Sun-man release tomorrow is a Deluxe figure
    Like the OTHER deluxe figures it will have an extra head and a energy effect

    The one coming in the REGULAR line will be a Standard release and like ALL the other standard figures will only have the single head.

    If I’m wrong then call me a liar when pictures of the standard version comes out!
