Iím pretty sure when I see them Iíll buy them anyway. They do look really good. Very curious on their long-term plans here. Iíd love a Sorceress in this style, and the Laser Power He-Man and Skeletor would really be neat. But if itís just 1982 through 1984 characters, meh.

A new series by show runner Kevin Smith was announced today at Power-Con. Itís said to take place after the original cartoon. I canít wait for this.  :) :D :o

And also a few new Origins reveals. I was skeptical about this, but know I wonít be able to resist them.  :)

I know I'm likely in too. I was already pretty much sold when they showed off the SDCC exclusive, but the Battle Cat pretty much seals it. My favorite as a kid, and still today. Wish it wasn't a year away  :)

Not sure if this should be itís own thread or not, but here goes.

I found the Sky Sled w/Prince Adam and Battle Cat today. This line is slated to hit  August 1st both in store and online, so let the hunt begin...

Thanks Ben, good to know. Did you try to buy them? Just curious if there was a register lock or if it was worth braving our local Wal-Mart. Iím personally pretty excited for this line. I know we just had an incredible run of MOTU Classics figures, and I really love that line, but the retro toy feel of these is really neat. I at least have to get He-Man and Battle Cat, the ones that started it all for me.

Yup, I was able to buy them. I havenít found any single figures yet, but I keep looking. Well, I keep checking Brickseek anyway. Trying to hunt toys during this time isnít very easy.  :P

Actually after I saw your message, I swung by our closest Wal-Mart while out and about. That store had two Battle Cats, but nothing else. Overjoyed to find the Battle Cat though. Really like the packaging on these, havenít had a chance to open it yet. Hopefully the figures themselves arenít too tough to find. They seemed to have quite a bit of peg space ready for them at least.

Figures sighted at a Walmart in Wisconsin, so keep your eyes peeled.  A few Walmarts in MN have empty pegs all up and down the aisle like they're getting ready for a reset.

Still empty pegs here, but the Star Wars pegs right next to the MOTU setup was bare too, so no surprise there. I did find a pretty good deal on He-Man and Skeletor on eBay, so those are on the way. I probably wouldnít have caved if there wasnít a pandemic on.  :P

Iíve been tempted to eBay those two as well, but the prices were too high a few weeks ago. I was kind of hoping ďthe launchĒ would have included restocking online as well, especially since He-Man and Skeletor are supposed to be open orders. Empty pegs at our closest store as well, but to be honest I donít necessarily want to keep stopping there to check either. Hoping they arenít too tough to get.

Where should I look for these in a Walmart? Regular toy aisle or that weird Neca section in Electronics?

They are in the regular action figure aisle.

Hit the jackpot this morning, scoring all six figures in the first wave.  ;D Found the Minis too, so I got He-Man, Skeletor, and the Slime Pit He-Man.

That is awesome Ben! Iíve been trying to use Brickseek to track these down, but I seem to keep missing them by just a bit. I did manage to get a Skeletor yesterday after work, so now I have Battle Cat and Skeletor. Hopefully they will continually be getting stock in. Nice score!
