    I have zero interest in the MOTUC Minis 2-Pack. I have no intention of ever buying them.

      Same here. They are lame, made even lamer by the size reduction. Plus collecting one line is enough for me and I hate Mattel to begin with, so they are not getting any more of my money for these stupid things.

    I just need to get that Goat-Man figure, if I get extra lucky that is!

      Yeah, I have a feeling Goat Man and Loo-Kee will be marked as sold out before I get a chance to buy them.

        I'm going to be trying for a Goat Man.
        What are the odds on Matty Geo-Blocking us Internationals yet again on another sale day?

            If that happens to me I'm gonna be pissed.

                Nothing would prevent them. I'm sure it will happen again, and that lying sack of shit will come on the boards to say the problem is 'fixed' only after the 12 or so Goat Men allocated for this sale are sold out....

              I'm going to be trying for Lookee and Goat Man, too. Blade will be coming through my sub.

              Would anyone be a lot happier if instead of the Mini Masters, Mattel had released MUSCLE esque Masters guys? I would love those!

                If some people think the Unwanted One is a rip-off, how will they feel about Kowl and Lookee at $20 plus shipping?

                  Blade just sucks, looks out of place. Goat man on the other hand is a need to have in my collection. The other two lil cartoon garbage characters well i can pass on them. I dont like pop stuff anyway. Just my opinion though.

                      Shipped on Friday, 11 April. This is the first time my sub has actually shipped before sale day in well over a year...

                        Got mine yesterday, I think I have to live with his bulky armor (that hinders his ab crunch BTW) and with his crappy sword!... He's not my favorite figure nor my unfavorable either. I might try different armors on him at one point and see if I'd like him more or not!

                          Yay, I got the chance to capture two Goat-Men today, him and Loo-Kee/Kowl are still available at this moment.

                            Scored a Goat-Man and, despite my better judgement, Loo-Kee and Kowl, I really want a spare of Goat-Man's hammer, but I really can't justify $27 for that alone...heh.

                              I bought one Goat-Man figure and one Loo-Kee and Kowl two-pack. Really looking forward to adding Goat-Man to the collection.

                                Agreed, I'm a big fan of classic fantasy characters like Mr. Goaty here, and I'm very happy he made the cut before the line is doomed.

                              Good luck for everyone who's going for the normal day-of sale today!

                                Thanks for the luck!

                              Well, my first All Access purchase has, at least, been accepted. Waiting on shipping confirmation now.

                              Blade is a cool looking character, but having never seen the movie, I have no attachment to the figure. Sorry, had to skip.

                              The minis are tempting, but given I missed them on the first pass, I do not need two and one tower. Goal is for the whole Castle. So no go there.

                              In the end, it was just Batros and Strong-Arm. I know, not glamorous picks or high demand figures. But, given I am a fan of the Filmation, they just logically made sense and I have to start somewhere. And, at the end of the day, they are my first.

                              Right now, I will probably be picking up He-Man next month when I have a bit more cash. Depends on what the May All Access purchases are as well.

                              Best of luck to everyone and I hope you are all able to get what you want and/or need.

                                I like Batros. The wings are well done and the sculpt is good. Strong-Arm is good, but he's not my fav because he's just too cartoony and lacks detail.
