Matty is putting up the non color changing version on Aug 2 along with it's other convention stuff.  Plastic Man from DCU will not have the case the SDCC version has and the Starro spores will only be available at the con.

Psyched to see Roboto and Buzz Off included, a couple of my favorites.  I was holding out hope for Man-E-Faces, but oh well.  Grizzlor (who we've seen somewhat) is cool too, although sort of at the tail end of my interest in MOTU as a kid.  I can't say I know who the others are (aside from King Hiss), without seeing them.  I'm really on the fence about a sub for next year.  I should just skip it and save the money, but I don't want the stress of trying to get some of my remaining "wants" should they come up for sale (Man-E, Stinkor, Panthor, etc.)

Brian - just sign up and sell the ones you don't want.  If you list them the day of the release date, you'll easily get your money back.  Plus you'll get the club exclusive figure which can be sold for $100.

Good idea, I may have to do that.

I see that AFI has some (blurry) pics up from the MOTUC presentation.  Roboto, Shadow Beast, New King Grayskull, Buzz Off, and Palace Guard 2 packs.  Pretty nice....and tougher to pass on a sub now.

Update: Booth pics up at TNI, it all looks pretty spiffy.

Pretty neat reveals, but I'm still leaning toward not getting a sub. If it was just the 12 monthly figs  again I'd have no problem signing up , but I'm not sure I'm gonna want to fork over all that extra for stuff like Battle Armor Skelly and the larger beasts. I might just try to fight it out every 15th, and hey, even if you miss one, they re release everything now eventually, so it's no big deal. Now onto the reveals, I think they're all pretty neat, but the standout for me is Vikor i think. he just looks friggin cool in a Conan kind of way. Wasn't expecting much from him but he stole the show for me.

Really liking the new stuff. I'll try to get Roboto, Buzz Off, BA Skeletor, and KG for sure. Bow, Shadow Beast, and the Palace Guards are 'meh' to me.

High quality images linked above.

Some winners and some losers - if they're not careful, they're going to repeat history. . .

Not happy with the disguise He-Man subscription figure - not really a good choice if you're trying to lure folks into buying the subscription.

Oops, I see Brian beat me by three hours!

Battle Ram!

I think it looks great. I can only imagine how much this bad boy will cost, though.  :P

Eeowch, probably gonna be a pricey item if/when it happens. I think I'm gonna avoid these, they're gonna take up a lot of space if the size of the actual figures i any indication.

Nice!  I figured they'd make the sky sled at least, but the tank part is awesome!  It'll cost, I'm sure, but it will sell out quickly.  I liked most of the figure reveals except for the exclusive.  That Little Red Riding Hood HM is going on ebay when I get him along with the map.

I'm gonna try to get Orko tomorrow, but I don't think I'll be too unhappy if I miss him, they'll put him out again eventually. Honestly, I'd be happy if I could just buy Orko, I have little interest in Adam, never cared much for the concept of the character myself, just way too Superman for my tastes. If I could just buy the little guy for like 8-10$ or somthin, that'd be cool.
