If you're looking for MOTU figs, I suggest looking at your local Gordman's store. I found Battle Glove Man-At-Arms, Mega Punch He-Man, redecoed Tri-Klops and Skeletor, smack addict Mer-Man, and EVIL-LYN!!!!! Finally!!
They also had that silly 4-pack of mimi-figures, the one with Ram-Man. The supposed TRU exclusive 2-pack of Wolf Armor He-Man and Snake Armor Skeletor was there as well, at a cheaper price than TRU.

Be cautioned, Gordman's wants $9.99 for their MOTU figures.

Ick. Mattel's done a fair job on exclusives, but this is...ugly. Maybe on purpose, I don't know. Sure as hell doesn't entice me to get a magazine subscription I don't want.

I see according to some posts on He-Man.org that figures such as Fisto, er um...Battle Fist, King Hiss, etc. are showing up on ebay now.  I still haven't seen any signs of anything past Sy-Klone and Prince Adam around here, but if I'm going to collect these I'd need to do a lot of catching up anyways.  Now if I could only find Roboto somewhere for less than $30  :P.

That chest plating IS removable to show the gears underneath and his misc weapons fit on his back.  Great figure hope it gets a wider release than what it has gotten so far

Thanks for the pic OCB, I think that figure looks really great.  We never have any new MOTU around here (that's pretty much the story everywhere though, isn't it?)  I'm just looking to find this figure for $20-$25, and I might be done with MOTU unless the retail situation picks up.  Pretty much done before I started I guess, but its too hard to catch up right now.  Gots to have me a Roboto though!  Thanks again for the pic! :)

Damn...that Snake Teela is the most craptastic figure I've ever seen. And that includes Inhumanoids.  ::)

Apparently Aldi's stores are getting the Snake Men line. I know what I'm doing tomorrow morning, and it's not sleeping or working...

I got Fisto and Zodak from Killertoys on Friday, nice figures and glad to have them :-*

Guy in MN found a bunch of Snakemen at Aldi's...along with a damn scalper.  He got what he needed though

Good luck fellas, I'm done with the exception of Kobra Kahn and just keeping the faith that Clawful, Webstor and Stinkor are eventually made (fat chance)

Got what I wanted from the Snakemen line at Aldi's this morning. I got one each of Zodak, Fisto, Rattlor, and King Hsss. Some other guy who hunts for his kid bought every other figure there. Talk about greed. He was disappointed he didn't get two Zodaks. Tough ****, greedy little man. It's crap like that that makes this line very frustrating to collect and enjoy.

Wave 2 of the Snakes is apparently showing at Albertson's stores. I don't have any of these around me, but at least the love is spreading.

Too bad Mattel doesn't care to stock stores like this.

Wow that is cool...hopefully some good prices and like you said Ben, a plethora of secondary characters (non-variant ones at that)

Now if they can somehow produce a Clawful, Webstor and Stinkor ::)
