Check your spam. That's where mine was.

And yeah, they meant to. Scott said that we'd be getting the October reveal sometime this month.


Thanks Mo. It was in spam.

How do you get yours so fast?

It's telling me I have to wait until the 30th before I get mine. :roll:

I'm thinking it will be another week before I get my order, which didn't even ship until Saturday. Nevertheless, MOTUC figures are well worth the wait, especially this year. There have been some fantastic figures!

Well mine are from the sub so I should get them a little faster-- and I just ship USPS -- and Louisville is one of their hub areas so I get most mail and packages rather quickly- since it doesnt have to go from Louisville to somewhere else before heading home...

I got Stinkor and Slushhead today. I sold off Stinkor within 5 minutes of having him. Just not my cup of tea. I didn't even like him as a kid.

Got these on Saturday.

Stinkor . . . stinks. It's kinda annoying. My toy room just got over Mossman's stench, so now Stinkor gets a turn. I understand it harkens back to the vintage version, but personally I prefer my figures to be odor neutral.

Slushhead is actually pretty decent, however, I have a question. How exactly do the tentacles attached themselves? I keep trying to jam them in the holes, but they just sorta go partially in, hang for a bit, and come loose whenever the figure is jostled.

Suggestions?

I also noticed that Slushhead's plastic seems . . . cheaper. I didn't noticed that on Stinkor, however.

I gave up. In my mind, he doesn't have tentacles. Only the left one (I think) would go in. The right one wouldn't catch.

I used a little bit of Gorilla Glue to get Slushhead's tentacles to stay attached.

I think we're all having issues with the attachments - see Crawford's review...

Quote:
But the mechanical arms are a big part of this figure, and they don't attach properly. Now it might just be mine (I certainly hope so), but I couldn't attach either correctly. They have specific ends designed for each side of the back pack, one rectangle, one half round, and neither worked on mine no matter how hard I tried. I managed to get them to hold in place on the WRONG sides long enough for one photo, but they wouldn't stay in place correctly in their intended peg holes.

That's a huge let down, and really hurts a Sculpting score that otherwise would have gotten another full star.

Weird... Now I admit that I did have a hard time getting them to push into place but haven't had any issues with them staying in since I actually got them forced into place.

Got my sub stuff yesterday-

Anyone notice on the box of the mailer boxes are other figures names-

Between HP and SMoA One had Clamp Champ and Sweet Bee in larger print and the other had Castaspella--

Ive seen the alternate names on the front before--

SO is this just a hint of upcoming figures or anyone have a reason for it..

I don't really understand where you're saying you read those names, or what HP stands for...but the name Castaspella has me excited!
