For those who are interested, TNI has a hi-res shot up of the convention exclusive She-Ra figure HERE

They also have a picture of an upcoming exclusive bust of Hordak.  There will be a non convention exclusive released next year I believe too...looks kind of cool:  Hordak Bust

So sad...I don't miss my figures in the least either though.  

That bust looks awesome.  One of the toy purchases from my youth I can still clearly remember is going to Ben Franklin and picking out a Hordak from the rest of the figures.

I really want She-Ra and have hope for the Collector's club to get new figures.

These new figures rock. I really hope they release them here in the US or make them availoable some way.

Anyone else think that the rooted hair She-Ra is the exclusive and they will release the sculpted hair as the regular release.

I saw these this morning, but wish I hadn't ;).  Just when I had pretty much gotten MOTU out of my head (I had a He-Man, Scott helped me with a Roboto), they had to show more figures.  If they decide to release these state-side somehow, I'm going to be awfully tempted.  I wish the show/toys would have been more of a success here in the US, to be able to keep the line going.  I'm with you Scott, I wouldn't mind having a Stinkor...he was my favorite baddy as a kid, and my vintage one still has a smell to him ;).  I remember him stinking up the whole toy box (or Snake Mountain) when I was little.  Good times.

Those bastards had better release those in the US.

Of course, I'm still screwed on She-Ra and Snake Armor He-Man, but who isn't?

The snake men wave came and mostly has gone from TRU up here.  They sold quite well.  Is this something I should have mentioned earlier????  They were just dumped in a basket and gone within a week or so. :-[

Well, if it was Talon Attack Stratos and Snake Armor He-Man, it would have been newsworthy. The early Snakemen waves really weren't anything to write about, since people were only interested in owning four figures from two waves. (Fisto, Zodak, Rattlor, and King Hsss.)

Oh, did you all know that Mattel gave away Keldors with a $25 purchase to German MOTU fans through TRU? Kinda bull****, eh?

Why another Call Mattel day?

Mattel isn't going to take it seriously.

I like some people at the .org, but they tend to have their heads up their asses in regards to the reality of their favorite toy line.
