I received my order from Super7 for MOTUC. I got my shipping notice last night and my package arrived today with no departure scans or tracking updates besides an arrival and delivery scan. I read Super7 was overwhelmed by the volume and had to use an outside source to help with the shipping. Supposedly, they are still shipping out orders.
I only ordered Teela, then I had regrets not preordering He-Man an Ram-Man. By then, Super7 orders were closed. I had to go with Big Bad and their higher price.
Sad that you have to take matters into your own hands to make armor look like armor, especially at the price point. Got a little sloppy in some areas, but I'm pretty happy considering I haven't painted in a good while.

I've been on a bit of a MOTU kick lately. Picking up some figures I missed and getting back to appreciating the line again.
I wanted a He-man that was more of a mix of 200X and classic like most of my other figures are. I was using Snake Armor head on King Grayskull's body which looked awesome, but maybe a little too 200X. I didn't like the flat gray on regular He-man's armor, so I broke out my silver paint and got to work. I'm really happy with the result. I keep calling him Neo Classic He-man. If I had a mini comic head, I'd consider putting that on there, but I'm fine with him as-is. I'll probably end up painting his shield as well.

I keep seeing a huge $80 He-Man figure at my local Game Stop. I'm tempted to buy it, but I can't pull the trigger.
It is not necessary to believe in God to be a good person. In a way, the traditional notion of God is outdated. One can be spiritual but not religious. Some of the best people in history did not believe in God, while some of the worst deeds were done in his name.

I’ll put this in the Funko thread too, but...
Thundercats are back!
Not as cool as what we started to get from Matty imo but I’ll take them regardless. Homeboy over at Funko is obsessed with the He-man style molds. I do think it’s nice these will fit alongside the original He-man figures. That was probably his intent since the original TC figures were so much bigger than the He-man figures when we were kids.
These are actually really cool, I didnt know anything about them. Will these be available in the UK? And when are they expected to hit retail?
We don’t really have any info on the line yet. So no release date yet and no idea if they’ll be exclusive in any way. My guess is that they’ll be the same availability as the rest of their figures. So the typical online stores, Amazon, GameStop and Target will get them. Maybe ToysRUs? I’m not sure what Funko’s distribution is like overseas.
Well, my new Club Grayskull figs came in from Super7, and I have to admit, I'm pretty happy with 'em. They seem to be causing a lot of angst and gnashing of teeth with other collectors, so I'd say this is a polarizing set. I love 'em, personally.
