    I haven't seen then yet. I got my Stone Cold from Ebay. The last Walmart that carries the line is sitting on some Ultimate Warriors and Becky Linch figures.

    I'm not sure it's his knees as much as it's his cape.

    I made them. It’s why I kept asking for 2 of each half.

    Yeah, the cape helps a lot with him falling over, especially since his knees are floppier than all my other Origins figures. Truly a bad combination.

    Did the outer box have the Power Con logo on it? People are apparently getting them with it and some even had the cards which were supposed to be only for the Power Con and BBTS orders. Someone got an $83 shipping quote to ship just his Horde set to California. The Org is about to go into nuclear meltdown mode. Other places are not so nice about it.

    I double checked the box. No Power Con logo and no card with this one.

    Sweet! I've still never seen Trap-Jaw in a store and never seen it for sale online near retail price (without an added shipping charge to not make it worthwhile) though I check every day. I'm seeing on Facebook in a MOTU group that waves 1-4 are being discontinued. I don't really want the comic Trap-Jaw. I'm wondering if the current Amazon $25 listing is going to be as good as it gets...

    That's about the price they had it for here, and honestly with Trap Jaw being a rather hard to find figure we just went with it. Of course that could change any day, and hopefully Mattel produces solid cases of just Trap Jaw for everyone.
    I don't really know if waves 1-4 are being discontinued, specially after hearing that they're producing revised samples of Teela, Yellow Lyn and She-Ra with the new knees. That would suck if it was the case. I still need to find a Roboto for my collection.

    Got these two. Both of them are action figure bliss to me. The designs, the color, the sculpt - everything. Even without knowledge of MOTU, I think I would feel the same way.

    ^ The red Beastman definitely. It really needs no toy line affiliation. It just looks good period.

    Anybody know the measurements (length, width, height) of the Horde 4 pack? Looks big.

    I wish I was able to get this. Though I was at work and completely forgot about it. Looks great. If anyone has an extra they want to sell I would be glad to take it off your hands. Never had the original Castle Grayskull. I saw the figures in stores and watched the cartoon but at the time it was Star Wars, GI Joe and Transformers were my main focus. Not classics Grayskull but it being closer the the vintage one it’s a cool set.

    Bought it from that Mattel Creations website when the exclusives went up for sale on there.
