  • March Figures: Hydron, NA He-Man, Fang Man, The Unnamed One

    Oh look... Fang man didn't really sell out after all.

    Wasn't Fang Man subscriber only...? So...one of my subscriber benefits just evaporated. Again.

      Fang-Man is the customer service remaining stock, at least that's what normally TG claims!... Probably at one point Horde-Troopers might show up as well!

        I am sure they will now. They will not be on Early Access, they will just be shown on a sale today when the previous months/quarter sales were low. They are guaranteed to push numbers up for Scott, as many people combine figures - or try too.

      Oh yeah... LOL! IIRC, Fang Man was originally supposed to be day of, but Neitlich made a knee jerk decision to make him sub only for some tactical reason. He's been doing this with random figures ever since.

        Also, there are many other fans on the Org who have also suggested before to tie certain figures to the subs, so the subs could go through and the line won't die! Many people out there are simply too naive and believe every marketing trick there is! And of course Neitlich would use any advantage he can get!

          They chose not to sell Fang Man to pressure people into getting a Filmation sub.

            Remaining Customer Service Stock. Suddenly found boxes in a warehouse. Donated figures from Mattel employees. Yet some people will wholeheartedly believe any manure that Scott shovels their way, ignorance is bliss.

              I frankly don't really care this month...I suppose if I am charged, I better get the figures in good shape, but they go straight to the Cabinet of Undesirables once I have them in hand.

                Hydron probably he has the worst bloated armor thus far!

                  I think it's Sea Hawk. That figure really suffered from it in my opinion.

                    I third that. He Bro did a step by step fix and even used a digital micrometer to show the changes. Big difference when the arms are down.

                  I predict Hydron will be the cheapest secondary market figure out of the whole line.

                    I agree, I am going to to have to bundle him in a trade to move him.

                  Oh right, I almost forgot we were getting that cheap looking UNO garbage this month.

                    Fang Man was obviously held back to sell more subs. This type of (continuing) behavior was why I didn't sub this year.


                    I'm skipping Hydron and will buy him when everyone dumps theirs on eBay and Amazon for $15 or less in the summer.

                      I'm actually looking forward to Hydron, sure I wish they would stop with the horrible thick armor, but I still like the look of the figure. Just to throw it out there, why not instead of figuring out the best place for the tabs to connect they just get rid of them all together and glue the shirts or in this case scuba suit on the buck like they do the female figures? It would seem to fix the problem in my mind.

                        I may buy an extra Fang Man just for the spare parts. The Sword of the Ancients looks better than the swords that Blade comes with, so I may give him the extra sword. I might also swap Goat Man's blue boots with Fang Man's red boots, as I think the red boots would look better on Goat Man and they don't have the loose ankle problem.

                          I know this doesn't negate the look of Hydron but when you think about it, space and deep sea water suits are in some case bulky. So this is how I've let it pass. Plus the fact I was never a fan of NA and am just warming up to them a little and am seeing Hydron's wear as a hybrid suit which allows him to function in both environments.

                          I'm debating on maybe trying to pick up some Fangmen as some that I received had a problem with their knees slightly off the peg. But thanks to some with some reheating I was able to get them back in place, so may not be neccessary. But with the Asbury Park Comic Con in Jersey in April I have to try and consolidate to prepare for that and possibly trying to score some Goatmen!

                            You might want to microwave a cup of water for 2 minutes, and then put Fang Man's legs in the hot water. That should loosen the legs and make them easy to fix.

                          Got my club renewal. Can't wait to get these figures and put them in the cabinet with the other undesirables! -_-

                            Fang Man is a maybe for me, if he makes it to All Access. Beyond that... well, got no choice for TUO and just not interested in NA He-Man and Hydron.

                              I was not excited for NA He-Man (I'm not a big NA fan.) But the figure came out incredible. One of the best in the line. Highly recommended.

                                Should I get a 2nd NA He-Man for display? I don't usually like to buy doubles, but have made a few exceptions when I think the variant is different enough to warrant it (i.e., Fisto, Moss Man, Trap Jaw, Whiplash). I refuse to buy 2 Dekkers though for example. I sometimes consider getting another Teela, Man-At-Arms and Bow. Anyway, what do you think about NA He-Man, is it worth it?

                                  Yes! He has two very distinct looks, and both look cool on display

                                I was considering getting another NA He-Man too.

                                  And sold out, unfortunately. I was going back and forth on picking one up on Monday, but I guess that decision's been made for me.

                                    So, the usual people got their March figures REALLY early... and one was nice enough to post pics of the UNO. Looks like the leaked pics are IN FACT, the UNO.

                                      Horrible figure and completely dishonest hype, per usual from Scott. He makes this line incredibly difficult to enjoy. Question, though: who are these "Usual People" ? it's clear that Mattel/Scott favors certain fans and provides them access and samples. Is this what you were referring to? Who are these people? I assume they are the typical sycophants that litter the ORG.

                                        So the extremely limited stock of a figure which had no DOS due to "logistical reasons" is still for sale? And yet there are morons who get surprised by this...
