Please don't anyone get too hyped about Comic Con MOTU, Chad does state Powercon is where he plans to show off Hordak and Telela. It would be awesome to show at Comic Con but I would be surprised if he did.

Such a cluster-F.

Mattel has already done, what - three lines of vinatage figures. Just let Super7 keep doing what they are doing.

Some of the quality of Super7 figs have been pretty poor, they have done some good ones as well though to be fair.

Apparently the plan from Mattel is to put this new "origins" line of figures back on store shelves rather than just selling online, I guess trying to get a new generation of kids hooked on motu and also appealing to the nostalgia of older collectors at the same time.

They do look pretty sweet, the 5.5 inch vintage style but with modern articulation and designs based on the mini comics.

I wish they did but apparently Mattel has been taking back all his licenses since January.
I have known it since January and I am still hoping things can change...
But when I see this new toyline I think that is not a good sign for us who collect Sideshow statues and Classics figures

I know it's nerve wreaking for those that want this line but I love that Chad is keeping a little anticipation going.

Oh yes. Chad is a true master at keeping the anticipation going.

Whoever gets around to giving me Manchines and Monstroids get my vote. So far Mondo is closest with Relay.
