Mattel released a preview of Mosquitor over at Pixel Dan's site.

Easy ordering of Stinkor and Slush Head over at Matty just now. I remember that being such a pain, so either there's a ton of subs or nobody cares anymore. I didn't even get stuck with a WSOD.

Yeah, I had no problems ordering.  I got stinkor, and finally got man-at-arms after missing out the first 2 times.

Sounds like Mekaneck is coming in October:

I dropped my Classics sub this year, so I haven't been keeping up as well as I used to, but Mekaneck (and Ram Man, when he is released) is one that I'd really like to get to round out the collection.  Looks great, as usual.

Nice. Glad they're finally getting around to him, since no MOTU display is complete without Mekaneck.  :)

Finally got my Stinkor and Slush Head, after Cornerstone Logistics spent eight days messing around with the package:



I'm glad Stinkor has his smell, though it's not overpowering like the vintage figure. And Slush Head is just sublime. Something about an anthropomorphic frog in a fishbowl just works.

Nice. I expected to see one of the NA Skeletors before this one, but it's great nonetheless.

A few early pics. Granamyr! No other new figures, besides Mekaneck and Dragon Blaster Skeletor. I do like that Mattel's display looks like one of the old posters.

Sweet. And here I figured he'd be the last figure in the line.

That's the one that I've really been waiting for, hopefully I'll be able to pick him up.  One of my favorites as a kid, and the new version looks really nice as well.

Vote for the power mask demon.

I have no idea who half the announced characters are. Castle Grayskullman?  :o

Scissorhands guy? Not my pick.
