    I'm not sure if these two renders are any different from the already available Prince Adam and Evil-Lyn?:

    So according to this video by Toy Habits, MCX Snake Mountain is in production and started to have slots in some overseas online stores to pre-order:

    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...

    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!

    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)

    I'm happy to be back. Had some stuff go down Q3 of last year that slowed me down substantially, but all good now.

    I put together Land Shark (imperfect but really well done for a simpler set - I don't think Lego could do any better at a $20 price point) and Monstroid (frickin' AMAZING) last night. I can honestly say that, taking into account the limitations of the minifigure format, this is the second best Filmation She-Ra we have ever gotten. And yeah, I know that is a serious dig at Super 7 but facts are facts and I don't care who is offended. The only beef hardcore She-Ra fans might have is we got the Filmation Honor Sword in gold instead of grey/silver, but I am pretty neutral on that choice at this point. Traditional Roboto is not a surprise if you got the Amazon exclusive, but it is really, really nice in toy colors. Hordak is Hordak - I'm the wrong guy to ask as I was always going to forgive it any shortcomings and love it for being Hordak alone, but honestly, besides a somewhat bulky chest piece, its an awesome figure.

    I've actually gone back and reconfigured the builds of all the Skeletor heads to match the Slime Pit (Skeletor head facing backwards). Works surprising well for them all and saves a ton of shelf space. Had to add a couple pieces here and there to make some work, but nothing too onerous.

    I am pretty much always concerned about this line, but is seems to somehow keep its head above water, if only barely. And I can't really complain when I have all my "must haves" with the sole exception of Stridor out of it. I won't really worry unless Powercon comes and goes with no news.

    Good to see you posting again DA.
    I was able to get the Horde Slime Pit, the Land Shark and the Monstroid sets from Amazon, but I haven't built any of them yet though. I'm still waiting for the Skeletor's Havoc Staff to go on sale or pick it up later (it's not a priority for me at this time), also I'd love to see the other two main sets that I've purchased already to go on sale as well to pick up for army building.

    But not hearing any announcements for more sets in development makes me questioning the future of this line!
    What has happened to the Snake Mountain, not even a good 2D/3D render to reveal?

  • Dark Angel
    replied
    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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...
