Crap, I forgot about Whiplash and Grizzlor too. Hopefully, I'll remember when Man-E-Faces goes on sale, which I think is August.

Damn - I totally forgot about the figs going on yesterday.  I wanted Whiplash and Grizzlor, but now that I've remembered Whiplash is sold out.  And I'm not sure if I want to pay the shipping just for Grizzlor.   :-\

Try Ebay if you still need them.  I managed to score a BG Teela for under $30 shipped.

I would have preferred a magenta armored Faker.

If anyone wants to split the set let me know.  I still need a Bizzarro but don't collect MOTUC.

For those who forgot about last months MOTU releases (like me), here's a reminder that Clawful and Buzz-off go on sale this friday.

Just a heads up for anyone interested in this line, or maybe didn't get in at the beginning, but MattyCollector.com is having an "all star" sale for the next month (while supplies last) and are putting some of the older figures up for sale again (like He-Man, Skeletor, Battle Cat, Trap Jaw, etc.).  Good chance for someone to at least get the main characters, or if you just want a He-Man/Battle Cat vs. Skeletor/Panthor display for your desk or something.

Tried picking up Clawful, Buzz-Off, Evil-Lyn, and Panthor today. Well, I got Buzz-Off and Evil-Lyn. The site shows Clawful as almost gone even now, yet after ten attempts to add him to my cart, nada. And Panthor was already sold out, so there's that. At least I got the two I got, which was expensive enough.

For those of you who were a fan of the DC 2-packs, Mattel announced that the Faker set will be the last.

I was slightly surprised that many of the "all star" MOTUC stuff was still in stock as of today.  It looks like - as you mentioned - that Panthor was gone quickly, but it looks like the rest of them are still available.  I know many (all?) have had two go rounds already, but it is nice to see things like He-Man, Skeletor, Battle Cat, and Trap Jaw still available.

I'm not sure if they actually had Panthor.  If so, the stock was extremely limited.  I was able to get in as soon as they opened up the stock, I grabbed Clawful, Buzz-off, Hordak and Panthor.  Then when I went to pay it told me that Panthor was out of stock and I needed to remove him from my cart.  It was 11:03 at that time (CST).

Wow. 2012 is going to freaking rock for this line. Which it should since it's the 30th anniversary.


Shadow Weaver must mean Mattel finally got the Filmation rights after all. Can't wait for Friday and the rest of the 2011 figures to be announced.  :)
