    Noticed the first of my local Target stores to implement the new $16.99 msrp for the basic Origins figures and $21.99 for the DX's. Knew it was coming but was hoping Target would have dragged their feet just a bit longer.

    Not in the US in-stores at retailers like Target and Walmart. Wave 6 is starting to show up there. But Amazon recently in the last couple weeks had Trapjaw, Orko, and Man-E-Faces up for sale for MSRP.

    Also, Walmart.com recently had Trapjaw and Man-E—Faces available online only for $10 over MSRP.

    Sadly that ship has sailed, for the most part. You can still get them, it's just a question of how badly do you want them and how much time you're willing to put into checking Amazon.

    Orko

    Trapjaw

    Man-E-Faces

    A bit of a mark up but...

    Faker

    Fisto

    There's the listing so you can get them now or keep checking to see if they go down in price or if another seller lists them for less.

    Anyone seen these? Not Origins but some Origin of the line is included. Pretty much third party for He-Man now. The company is named Formo and ran by Emiliano and Josh from Power and Honor Foundation. What I could tell
    #1-Guerro sculpt He-Man
    #2-Preternia Keldor
    #3-Kang Gi (Mark Taylor concept)
    #4-Sharella
    #5-????
    #6-???
    Should be interesting especially to fill gaps in vintage collections. I’m wondering if parts can interchange with Origins to make some nice articulated versions of these.

    Number 5 looks like it could be that wizard that had beef with Evil-Lynn in the Filmation cartoon. I can't remember his name but he was in at least two episodes and looked like a fat genie.

    That’s right. I forgot about him. I’ll have look him up later. Here’s a few pieces of art from various places.

    NICE. Sy-Klone is one of those quirky personal favorites of mine. Have been hoping he'd make his way into Origins.

    I understand and can appreciate incorporating elements from established characters into lesser-known characters who are supposed to exist in the past in order to tie things together and bring them full circle. With that said, the Battle Cat-esque helmet on Sharella looks absolutely stupid.
