I got Fisto at a swap meet for $25. He's actually a pretty nice figure. I don't buy many heroic Masters, in general.

Some of the new reveals from Power-Con.

Snake Face looks terrific, and Octavia is definitely a nice surprise, but I really wish we were getting Flogg before Karatti.

Well I think orders will start to go through once people see a pic of what to expect and some stats on size, dimensions etc. But £200 is a big ask for something if your going in blind. But Castle Greyskull is almost a character in itself and is vital to a good display and collection so I'm sure it'll go through. Snake Mountain might be more of a long shot though.

I am on a huge Motuc kick right now picking up almost 30 figs from Ebay over the past couple days. These reveals are awesome and I will definayely preorder a Castle Grayskull.

I really wish I would have subbed as the King Heman looks to be my favorite so far. I really like the out of the box stuff like him and the upcoming Grayskullman.

Has anyone hard who the service stock reissues might be in October. I will be on first thing that day for Rattlor (one of my faves from all incarnations) and was hoping to make a nice big order with some older figs.

Can anybody explain what exactly is wrong with Frosta's arms?

I'm not a huge MOTU fan and she looks okay to me. But then again, I couldn't find anything wrong with Roboto's shoulders either.

The left and right forearms are switched. The gauntlets are supposed to be longer on the outside of her arms. The samples that AFi and Pixel-Dan have are wrong, the sample the Fwoosh got is correct.

Octavia was one of my most-wanted figures, so I'm really happy to see her get made. She looks good. Hope she still looks good when June 2013 comes!

The sad news is, her tentacles supposedly AREN'T going to be bendy in any way. I don't see why they couldn't be. Toy companies have been making figures with bendy parts for decades now, without it resulting in the kinds of issues we saw with Snout Spout...

Mattel excluse: "Given the minimum numbers we got for the sub this year, there's just not enough money in the budget for bendy plastic in the tentacles."

You just KNOW that's what the answer's gonna be. :evil:

They can just use the JLU figure plastic-- Im pretty sure we all know how much that stuff bends...

Ooooooh SNAP!

Honestly, though...bendy plastic with a wire in it isn't hard. I still have dollar store figures from back in the day that bent easily.
