Well Preternia He-man is exclusive to the sub-holders so no worries there. I just think that cosmic key he has is super cool.

I am definitely a picker and chooser on these-- (though I will admit at a local star wars meeting someone was selling off most of what has come before- and I was tempted to pick a bunch up-- but I resisted--

Only ones I have gotten so far has been Teela and She Ra for my Wife- and a Battle Cat..

I will be getting Bow -- probably will get Panthor-and I am debating on the Shadow Beast- (but at 60.00 I probably wont)

I still may pick up a Evil-lyn and Carnivus..


Watiting for Spikor, Two Bad and probably Stinkor and Snout Spout.

Actually, the Shadow Beast will be $30. Going to have an extra from my sub if you are indeed interested... (and apologies for not speaking to you at that meeting, trying to catch up with everyone and my mind in a million places when I finally got there...)

UPS finally made it through the snow to deliver Buzz-Off. He looks much better than I originally thought. I like his clawed hands, his circuitry wings and his fangs.

Now I want a Chief Carnivus, too. Darn you, Four Horsemen!

Damn Greg. I wish you would've known you wanted one sooner. I sold a Carnivus on Ebay for almost half retail earlier this month. I would've much preferred it go to someone here.

Darn! I would have paid full price!

Thanks for the offer. :D

I was on the fence for a while, but seeing his picture on the Buzz-Off card back made me want to get him. Crazy, huh?

If anybody missed out and still wants a SDCC Skeletor vs. Mo-Larr 2-pack, looks like you are going to have another chance at it! Matty posted this today:

MOTU Fans,

Run, Skeletor®, run … Mo-Larr, Eternian Dentist, is back in two brand new episodes of Robot Chicken! The first airs during the Season 5 premiere on Cartoon Network Sunday, January 9th. The second one airs the following Sunday, January 16th and reveals the secret origin of Mo-Larr. Heck, it’s so secret, even we don’t know what it is!

To celebrate the big event, we’ve been given the go-ahead to sell stock that was originally earmarked for Cartoon Network. So if you missed it the first time, here’s a second chance to get the special Mo-Larr vs Skeletor® packaged set on Monday, January 10, 2011, at 9 a.m. PT (noon ET)!

Packed with unwilling patient Skeletor®, this is the identical set that was first sold at 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, then here on MattyCollector.com. Skeletor® has a head with missing tooth and comes with his Havok Staff, Power Sword®, and Half Power Sword®. Mo-Larr has five instruments of torture −− er, um, we mean assorted dental tools, including @#%## drill and floss. Please note, as a special convention item, this set is NOT included with 2011 Club Eternia™ subscriptions.

I don't foresee those Mo-Larr packs moving anymore than they have been. Mattel really misgauged peoples' interest in the Robot Chicken skit. But I am excited about the sale on the 18th.

Okay, question for you MOTUC'ers here: I'm a MOTU fan of old, but after losing my vintage collection to the mom-dumpster, I bought many of the 200X figures. I fully realize that the styles are going to be different, but how are MOTUC's in terms of scale ONLY when set next to 200X figures? Are they even close to the same size?

I'm pretty much in the same boat as you. I collected the 200x line and now this one.

Unfortunately, the human characters don't match up at all. You might be able to get away with mixing some of the more monstrous characters with MOTUC, but characters like He-men, Teela, etc. aren't gonna be close.

I mean, they might be semi-close in height, but the MOTUC are much wider. It's kinda like having anorexics next to body builders. :mrgreen:

While the Mo-Larr bit last night was underwhelming, the Snake Mountain sub-lease was priceless! :shock: :oops: :shock:
