    The weapon with Trap Jaw appears to be an improved version of the Grayskull turret gun. The included computer console is also another version of what is in Castle Grayskull.
    The Fisto pack has the blue orb and stand similar to what is in the upper "hidden" room of the Grayskull set.
    The Jet Sled with He-Man doesn't have any extra pieces connected to CG like the others do.

    I am still very much excited by India Skeletor. He's so dark blue.

    I rather like the design of the red one, but since I don't actually collect HALO MCX toys (just green ones), it got a pass from me.
    I might go back for a third green one, though. Having the swappable heads, it's kind of neat having the face-head as the leader, and then two masked heads on either side.

    Didn't see anything new at my local WalMart. They are, however, remodeling so they may be keeping inventory low at the moment. But I did buy this:

    They must have found it under a shelf as they were lugging stuff around.

    I just received 2 Battle Rams from Deep Discount for $16.xx each with free shipping.
    I've already built one and it's a fun set. I think all the parts used to build the front section have Lego equivalents except for the switchable gryphon and serpent heads and the neck/blaster piece they plug into. If only they'd included the bonus of that unique piece, you could Bricklink the parts to built 2 Sky Sleds for each of these sets you own...

    Looks like there are some parts on the sled that don't have a corresponding match from Lego, but I don't have it in hand. That is an odd color for Lego to make so even if there are equivalents they are probably not made in that color.

    Hilarious because I did a search to find one of the pics & dates for when I got certain mcx items on clearance and your post was not long after mine...
    So it turns out, the price is $14.99 for most, but $7.50 for some.
    I guess I'll hold onto my receipt for a week or two, enjoy the non-flocked version, and watch for this set online.

    To add some more oddities to the price game, here's what walmart has online right now:

    Time will tell if/when walmart clearance price drops these like multiple sets preceding, like...

    Nice - thanks for the heads up. Free site pick up + $10 gift card (Baby Yoda pin fiasco) = ~$8 Battle Cat. I can live with that.

    -Mekaneck reporting in. Definitely seeing some activity from Skeletor's forces in sector three. Looks like they are...

    -Well, hard to tell. Let me just try to get a closer look.

    =Closer look? Wait! Mekaneck, it's Man-at-Arms, don't extend your neck while on the sky sled! The air resistance will...

    Dang, you actually opened 4 Mekanecks for that gag.
    Makes me sad that we'll never see Rattlor at MCX's current tooling budget.

    Eh, I bought them for a small group of Battle Rams to divide out among the factions. The extra neck pieces are a bonus.

    As for Rattlor, I don't know that it's a never situation so much as not in the next year or so.

    Picked up a $17 Battlecat set and $25 Panthor set on Ebay so I can finally have those cats on my shelf.

    Random stupid question, can the skulls from the "Dutch vs Predator" set be used as heads for figures? I don't own the set, but I was kinda wanting one of the skulls for a custom figure. (It's Skeletor's son "Skeleteen" by the way.)

    Alternatively, are thre any other (possibly cheaper) options for Mega Construx skull heads?

    Yes, those skulls are the same used for Scareglow.

    Alright, thanks. :)  I also thought of getting Scareglow and using his head, but not at the prices they want for him online...
