i think Zodak not seling out may be due to a number of factors, one being the character choice himself. Second, there was an increased shipment for Zodac which wasn't split in two like it was for Mer-man so the demand didn't seem as frenzied and many people got more Merman's than they'd wanted due to the site bugs giving people duplicate orders. Some people got as many as 30 when they'd only wanted it has been speculated that the resellers got burned with Mer-Man, thinking there was more fan demand than there actually was due to the fast sell-out the first time due to the site glitches. Theres still a ton of these on ebay just sitting there. It's my hope that maybe the shipping increase coupled with the site glitch being fixed will mean there's enough Hordak to go around.

Ordered mine smoothly for the first time in a while. It's nice to see a figure actually be in stock for a while for a change.

I believe July is Tri-Klops, and August is Man-At-Arms.  :)

Other way around, Man at Arms is July and Tri Clops is August.

I'm gonna be biting the subscription, I've gotten all of them so far, I might as well finish off the year and theres only two left to be revealed so I think the odds are good that it'll be good ones. I'm tired of the hassle of trying to score against thousands of other rabid fans, ehehe.

It doesn't really look more 200X per se, but incorperates some design elements from that version (the extra spider arms on the backpack, more eyes.) He uses the Skeletor body like the original figure did, so he lacks the spidery proportions of the 200X design. Either way though he looks pretty cool, a nice blending of design elements from both worlds.

In other news, for those not in the know, Mattel is offering a subscription service, which goes on sale near the end of May for the September-December figures, so anyone worried about not getting thier figure will be able to rest easy on the 15th of every month. Theres more details over at Matty Collector.

Septembers figure has been revealed to be Webstor in the latest issue of Toyfare. Pretty cool looking guy, the even gave him 4 extra arms on his backpack to make him more spidery!

The Legacy Collection / Definitive character list?

Does anyone know where I can find a complete list of what individual characters (including different outfits) have been made over the years? I've been trying to fill in the gaps of my A New Hope collection of late but it's gotten quite large so I'm not 100% sure on what I'm still missing. Any help would be great, thanks!

The preview figures are supposedly being put out by various Wal Marts across Canada for anyone who is interested. I picked up Soundwave tonight, cool little guy, though I'm kind of hoping he gets the voyager treatment at some point as he's very short.

I don't actually have any of the figures in the Endor set so I may just pick it up. It's the only one that I have any interest in really.

The Legacy Collection / Yknow what I find kinda shocking?

That between the time we got our last Ben Kenobi between our current one, that Hasbro never repainted the spirit Obi Wan from the OTC into an alive version. I think everyone predicted they would at some point. Heh.

I've picked up two of the 3/34" Universe figures so far, Classic Iron Man and Deadpool. They're kinda neat, but compared to Star Wars, these feel kinda cheap, with flimsy loose joints on both the figures I picked up. I don't care much for the style of articulation either and think they would benefit from the Star Wars type joints as well. I mean they're still neat figures and all, they just don't seem to be worth the same price for something as well sculpted and sturdy as the Star Wars line.

I just got the 3/34" box set today after thinking about it for a while and the figures do not disappoint. Really top notch quality, one of the better 3/3 4" lines I've seen. Anybody know anything about series 2? I know they showed some pictures at one of the conventions. I believe it had a Hellboy variant, Abe Sapien, Prince Nuada and the Angel of death.....I hope this line continues, I'd really like to add an Abe to the bunch to complete the group.

I managed to get my order through on the second shipment today but it took a good 10-15 minutes due to all the traffic. Once again, Mer-Man sold out ridiculously fast, somthing like 4 minutes longer than the last order I beleive? I hope Matty increases the production runs on the upcoming figures a little more....otherwise I think Hordak is gonna be a bloodbath.

Mattel has finally addressed the issue with the Mer-Man orders and say they have fixed the problem. This was posted on Facebook ..

"Hey MOTU fans,

Well looks like Mer-Man swam away way faster than we expected!

I wanted to let fans know we are WELL aware of some major technical problems yesterday with Mer-Man's sale. A lot of this was caused by the sheet amount of overwhelming fan support for the line with so many fans logging on to buy one at once.

We have immediately taken corrective measure so that this never happens again and I personally apologize to any fan who had trouble ordering the Ocean Warlord. It was unfair for you not to be able to get a figure do to a huge spike in hits on the site. We have a new Castle Grayskull sized super server dedicated to the site and are now better prepared for larger traffic on sale days.

We have also corrected the problem with international orders and they should not have trouble ordering when Mer-Man goes back on sale in a week or two.

Honestly, we had the same number of units yesterday for sale as we did for Beastman, and it took 41 days for Beastman to sell out. It is always a careful game we play to produce just enough for fan demand without overproducing which would kill the line. (to paraphrase fans from a few years ago...)

As announced we do have more Mer-Man figures coming before the end of April. By the time we increased production, we had to send Mer-Man in two separate shipments. It is the same run, they all just didn't make the same boat.

Going forward, we have increased production on Zodac and Hordak as well, but the full production of both of these figures should be available on the same day. If the second shipment of Mer-Man also sells out as quickly we will look at increasing overall production yet again until we get the number just right so the figure is online for at least a week or so! We do WANT to get these to fans after all.

As for concerns about quantities, we have looked at the numbers and honestly there are so very few fans ordering anything more than 3 units. By far, 1, 2 and 3 per person are the OVERWHELMING most common orders. We will keep up to ten available for international fans who want to save on shipping.

I will update everyone ASAP once we confirm the second on sale date for Mer-Man. We will continue to work with all of our fans to improve shipping, customer service options and buying options to make this as smooth a process as possible. You have my Mattel word!

Thanks for hanging in there!

-Matty "

Well thats good, looks like I and anyone else who missed out due to this error will have a fair shot at him the next time!

If I can't manage to get one on the 23rd (hard to say with how yesterday went) I'd be willing to buy one off of anyone here who got stuck with a second order, at cost plus shipping. I hate to miss out on Mer-Man, next to Skeletor he was the one I was most looking forward too, and I really don't wanna feed the scalpers on ebay if I can help it. Hopefully they'll have this problem fixed by then though.
