    It really is a shame Andre isn’t a regular release. Hopefully if/when he’s repurposed as Tytus and Megator they will be easier to get.

    ? I thought this is the end, as in the last wave of the motu crossover.

    It is, I believe he means when they reuse the buck for an Origins figure.

    Yes, Tytus and Megator are MOTU characters. Andre is already like 90% Tytus (just needs a new head, a second chest strap, silver boots and a G on his chest) so I can’t imagine they won’t make one for Origins. Megator is less likely.

    You can't have Tytus without Megator. It wouldn't be right.

    Everyone will have their opinion on the show. Some like it, even love it, others not so much. It cannot be for everyone. You can voice your displeasure about it. Don't discourage anyone else who may be interested in seeing it.

    Honestly, the Andre buck is too small in my opinion. I won't be happy with anything smaller than the Classics versions.

    A foot tall with the same relative bulk as the rest of the figures.

    Id be fine with andre size, but I agree. The classics ones were smaller than vintage, despite being at a larger scale than vintage!

    I'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned but Stridor Preorders at BBTS have been open since Wednesday. I preordered him from the weekly BBTS email link.

    The second part of my order shipped out early yesterday and just arrived. I am happy to have Junkyard Dog now in the collection. Gives me more reassurance that Sarge and Hart will show up as ordeted.

    I got all four from Walmart today. Andre having his feet removed to fit in the packaging is hilarious.

    I got Sorceress today. I said I wasn’t going to…but I couldn’t pass her up. She’s just about my favorite character from the original show.

    Anyway, I noticed a couple differences between her and my wave 1 Teela and Evil-Lyn. I expected her to have the resculpted knees (which are a huge improvement)…but I didn’t expect the resculpted ass. What a nice surprise. Teela and Evil-Lyn look to me like they are wearing training pants…haha…

    So I ordered a couple of other motu wwe figures to get the free shipping. My normal luck comes through as the two add ons (which while I don't mind having weren't the one I wanted the fricking most) shipped and arrived. In the meantime sarge is supposedly gonna come next week but now it doesn't even say preparing it is just ordered. I suspect much like most of what I order at target lately he will be delayed then ultimately canceled.
