    Mech, that description is certainly a surprise. Will be interesting to see what the set factually is.

    The Hordak Strikes and Landshark sets are available for preorder on BBTS:

    Hordak Strikes

    Landshark

    Then on Amazon, I found this:

    Havoc Staff Exclusive

    No price, no means to add to cart at this time.

      I've seen it before not long ago, but I thought it wasn't an official set!

      If it's $300, might as well be a real magical staff that takes you through a portal hole to Eternia or Despondos!... Seriously though, even it's made out of real LEGO bricks; it won't cost more than $200 max, probably between $120-$160 more likely!

      $300 is pretty pricey.... but man, that Havoc Staff is awesome!

    I forgot to show this off before. My buddy who's a lego guy sent me a link that has all the instructions for MotU in PDF form in case someone ever wants to piece together whatever.

        Great to know, it looks like yours and mine are from the same batch...

        Hopefully MCX would reveal more characters and sets over at Power-Con this weekend in addition to what we already know is coming.

        Got mine today and OMG Man-E-Faces is the best Mega minifig yet. I am totally down with this little dude, wish I could get a second w/o buying the whole set...

        The Man-E-Faces suppose to be in the advent calendar, however I'm not sure if this set is still happening or not... I'm assuming he'll be available in an upcoming set down the road.

        And I agree he's awesome.

      Ok, here is a pic of what it could be the "Hordak Strikes" and the Land Shark sets from the upcoming Power-Con perhaps?!... I'm not sure yet if Hordak Strikes is a buildable figure like the description we've seen earlier on, or actually this Monstroid set that comes with She-Ra, Hordak and Rio Blast(?):

      Click image for larger version  Name:	1631328420301.jpg Views:	0 Size:	185.9 KB ID:	56722

      The Land Shark set obviously comes with BA Skeletor and the regular vintage version of Roboto...

      I wonder why in hell people still take such a fuzzy picture in 2021, do they still have flip phones from the early 2000's or something?

      Edit: From Pixel-Dan's video streaming from Power-Con, the Hordak Strikes is actually the Monstroid set, but the fuzzy third mini figure is actually Prince Adam and not Rio-Blast!

        Awesome set and two great, much needed characters! For the minicomics fans, if that is Adam it must me the old minicomics coloration...

      It has been said at Power-Con that MCX Snake Mountain will be released later on, but no pics as of yet!

        That's kind of a big yikes from me...I mean, I want it, but I am literally approaching critical mass with the toy collection over here...

        I'm like just you, but that's why I'll be selling at least 50% of my LEGO collection, 80% of my unopened MOTU Classics and my design/hobby books!... Especially after signing up yesterday for a new toy brand by the 4HM; Cosmic Legions.

        Sometimes it's better to enjoy the quality and the uniqueness of what you have (and create) over the quantity of what you owe, and it's good to recycle stuff from time to time.

            I just opened the 5 pack with He-Man, Skeletor, Teela, Faker, and uhm...Beast Man today. I'm a little disappointed.

            I first saw these things at a flea market where someone had the Beastman single pack. I got home and googled them because it looked pretty cool. A tiny articulated, detailed figure.

            I had trouble getting these things out of the molded plastic and had pieces shooting across the room before I could even see what they were. Thankfully I was able to collect them all, but honestly these things are too small for my clumsy hands and there's no way in hell I'm paying $274 for a building block Castle Grayskull when I can get a real one for origins for $80.

              OK, well, this is a sightings thread. Maybe you want to start a separate thread for a review but it doesn't really sound like you have anything constructive to say.

            If by constructive you mean only positive-glowing-Iagreewitheverythingyousay, then no. I think you need to deconstruct the word constructive. But since I don't understand the point of a Sightings thread apparently, I'll just bow out of the conversation.

              So, anyway.

              Lots of Amazon news:

              -They finally fulfilled my Havoc Staff preorder from October at the end of January. Final price was about $71. I have not built it yet because OMFG are you kidding I really do have a life despite being a toy nerd.
              -They also listed the Advent Calendar via Amazon UK briefly, but it is no longer available. I have heard conflicting information regarding whether or not it was ever even released/cancelled/etc. If you or anyone you know actually has one in hand, let us know here!
              -Back in March, the "Zombie He-Man and Horde Pit" AKA Slimed He-Man and The Slime Pit appeared on Amazon and has been in and out of stock off and on ever since. I managed to score one, and it is easily the most creative and best use of the Skeletor Skull sets yet. Based on the co-sells in its instructions, the Fisto Rock Climber and He-Man Jet Sled have been retired, while the mini comic Trap Jaw and Zodac Scuba Attack should still be available.

              Finally, the Land Shark (with toy version Roboto and another BA Skeletor, not the Skeletor pictured on pg. 1 with toy Roboto) and Monstroid sets are seeing wide release in the past couple weeks, so PoP and Horde representation has been accomplished. At this point, I consider every tiny step a major victory for this little line, and getting both Hordak and She-Ra is awesome.
              Not every beast is tender, especially if there is genius in his making.

                Wow, I didn't realize that you've replied back. This board doesn't show new posts/replies anymore if it's not a thread or a post you're already created! Which is dumb!
                I still haven't gotten the time or the mood to build the last new sets, and I'm also trying to avoid any reviews so I get to enjoy the builds myself. Believe it or not, I haven't build the Castle Grayskull set to this day because I ran out of space to display it. I have to disassemble and clean(dust-off) a lot of other LEGO stuff and rearrange my shelves to find a proper space for it!
                Anyhow I'm glad to know that the Land Shark and the Monstroid sets still have a good quality to them including those minifigures. And I really hope we get to see new reveals of more vehicles and playsets soon just to give us hope that this line isn't dead yet!
                Powe-Con and Comic-Con are a little far away, but then again, we're already in the middle of April! (Crazy)

                It's all good, man. I think the builds are satisfying but I know you get into the more complicated stuff. I'm sure you will like them, but I doubt you will be remotely challenged - but you know that. And yeah, CG takes up a LOT of space...but so worth it, at least to me. It's basically impossible to display the Classics CG with a grouping of other figures and vehicles unless you have an entire room at your disposal, but the Mega version lets me do that while basically only eating up one shelf. Well, OK, 2 shelves due to height.Still more economical than an entire room!

                I honestly love simple builds as well so long as they do their job and they're sturdy enough to hold and to play with. Of course "juniorized" big elements can do that as well but using them extensively defeats the good building experience.

                As for CG, once I free up some dedicated space and I'll build it and see how it looks with the rest of the MOTU MCX stuff, I'd enjoy it for like 2-4 weeks and then dissemble it before it collects so much dust. I live in a building and an area where wind and dust are a power force. Construction is perpetual around here!
                My assemble LEGO, statues and my displayed MOTUC need some rigorous cleaning effort and energy. Sigh...
