    I think that might be a bit of a hyperbole.

    Just went on a run today. 2 DG's and they literally just restocked Marine Customizers, Exosuits, Marine Defense, and Sword Base sets, along with the usual CoD Solo Mercenary and Arctic Containers, Red Ww2 crate, Blue Merc Crates...no new Infinite sets, and I doubt they'll get them in anytime soon but who knows...

    The biggest Walmart Supercenter locally STILL has almost empty shelves. ZERO Aliens or MCx, nothing in clearance. Didn't stop at the other Walmart where I just picked up the Queen but I doubt they have anything new. Also stopped by a usually Early stocker Target...only 2 banshees, amd new pokemon, nothing else. About the only thing they've restocked was JP. And two Targets I had stopped by the last two days and I literally missed the boat on the Heroes 12 as there were only a scant few left, and I was just there 2-3 days before that. Really, really aggravating.

    Oh nice! I’m really loving this MCX MOTU line! That Trap Jaw is excellent. Looking forward to that and the Battle Ram set the most.

    Yeah I think I'm most excited for the Battle Ram too. I honestly can't wait the Toy of MOTU book not just because it's cool, but I also want to see all the stuff that could made into sets haha

    I think the He-Man Beastman 2 pack clearance was less about collectors not being into it and more about the time frame they were released during.

    Halo isn't dead but they have clearanced them too

    I counter with the WalMarts in this state not having a dedicated Mega Brands section and only about half even seeming to carry very small items they can sew in with toys of similar theme. And still no Rotons since the argument is that HeMan themed MXC stuff is on the verge of no longer being carried in stores and the brand appears to be exclusive to WalMart at physical locations.

    We'd best hope the EE.com, Amazon and the like keep offering the sets.

    Went back to Walmart on the other side of town and picked up the series 2 Alien egg I was missing. I stopped by the Target I don't usually go to and they had a full box of the heroes series 12. I gabbed a set along with an extra marine sniper.

    Good deal.

    I went to a few more WalMarts. Sitting in the parking lot of one of them now, in fact. Only one had a spot for Mega stuff and that was for the eggs. Again, next to the Lanard Alien stuff. No actual product though. The spot actually had more of the Marine transport vehicles in it.

    what do you mean? I wanted them when I saw them clearanced down to $5 a set... and they recently convinced me to get a few more...

    :lol 
    Also picked up ~half a dozen kratos as they were a buck each. Figured I’d figure out what to do with the figures and/or accessories later on. ;)

    Kratos is the one that no one wanted of all the dollar clearance I've found he was the most plentiful.

    I have a ton of shields and axes

    I think someone mentioned ten bucks.

    They really should have released Ghost of Sparta Kratos and not Dad of Boy again.

    Want to appologize, I forgot who provided the model... Its a nice little model... Just one area might need a little adjustment, but excellent overall... A huge thank you for making it, and giving access to it print it out...

    This is a ridiculous way to force interaction with the other wise useless package but I kept can't but hear a disembodied Skeletor head going, "grrrrrreeeeeh... stop iiiiit. I mean it! Stooooop!" As a tiny HeMan buzzes around him.

    Wish the jaw were articulated on the cats. And the head didn't have a tiny volcano in it.

    You're welcome! It's great to see someone print it out! Please, provide any feedback, positive or negative -- I'm betting the area for adjustment is the side panels that are supposed to cover the feet? I was going off reference pics (toy and drawings) and not an actual toy. The plan there was for them to be on if you wanted them but easy to remove to get more of the look of some of the drawings out there. But they're a bit thin so don't seem to print properly consistently. I can thicken them up if you'd like.
