    Yeah, rumor has it that MOTU is being purchased now by Nutlich Inc, so keep on dreaming about that Origins 200X Randor dude...

    That will be great to get 200X Randor.
    He was my biggest want that didn’t happen in the Classics line.

    I just hope he gets released before April once MOTU shuts down and leaves Mattel….🤦‍♂️

    Apparently, this art work comes from the leaked wave 13 card backs!

    The wave 13 assortment has these upcoming leaked figures:
    King Randor 200X, Dragon Blaster Skeletor, Snake Face, Snake Teela, Snake Troopers and probably Slamurai... And now Duplico?!

    Origins wave 12 is hitting West Australia's streets already, so it's just a matter of time to get them here in North America and the rest of the world (if there is still any proper distribution left?):

    Hm. Not bad. Don't remember if I have 2002 Snake Armor Skeletor. Probably a why not pick up for me.

    A couple of images of the Snake Armor Skeletor:

    I've pre-ordered this from BBTS a while back, and hopefully the rest of the wave 12 will be available soon to pre-order/order... I've never gotten this character during the 200X era, so I'm bumped to get this one.
    I really hope more of the major 200X iterations will be made into Origins, if not all of them...

    Got it... Thanks for painting a better picture.
    Regardless, try enjoying the toys and the experience even though it's all "plastic" at the end of the day! LOL

    I live in the Southwestern U.S. (TX), and I shop for MOTU toys both online & in stores. I prefer to get them in stores - given that I can sometimes find them that way & they're typically cheaper than online. I do shop online as well, but online prices sometimes tend to be more expensive. Of course, the increased online prices are arguably worth it, of course - given that even if you're spending more $, you're saving on gas/time/wear & tear on your car, etc.

    In general, I find it easier to find Masterverse toys in stores much more than Origins toys. Origins figures are typically very difficult to find in stores - especially the regular carded figures, given the Wave 7 peg-warming fiasco. So, most of the new Origins figures that I've gotten since late 2021 have been online - excluding this recent Mekanek/Ground Ripper set, Leech, and Snout Spout.

    Congrats, and this sets rocks as is IMHO. Probably Mekaneck could be released as a single carded figure, or a variant figure down the road.

    BTW, where do you live Man-E-Faces? And why don't you hunt those MOTU toys online instead of missing out on them in retail?... Sometimes the extra few dollars you spend on each figure will save you time, commute money and aggravation down the road... Assuming you live in an accessible location.

    All my MOTU collection aside from the 200X days is 100% online experience.

    I recently picked up the Road Ripper (AKA "Ground Ripper") and Mekanek set @ retail (Target). Excellent set! It's one of the few new Origins toys I have been able to find @ retail in the past couple of years - given that Wave 7 is still peg-warming.

    I'm glad that this figure & vehicle came together, since I strongly believe that if they were only available individually - they would have been much harder to track down. I.e., I don't think I would ever have seen the Mekanek on an individual card - it would certainly have been extremely HTF (especially given that any non-deluxe carded figures beyond Wave 7 are tough to find, anyway). And, the Ground Ripper/Road Ripper is an iconic/popular & somewhat small vehicle - so would probably have been tough to find (on it's own) as well.

    And, as it stands - this set seems to be selling well.

    I mentioned in an earlier post that I was disappointed due to this newer Origins Ground Ripper not having the previous version's "rip-cord" feature; and, Mekanek doesn't have the "waist twist" feature of the original toy, enabling you to turn the figure & extend the neck that way. However, now that I have the set I'm getting used to this not having the earlier, Vintage features. The main elements still exist - i.e., you can still roll the "Road Ripper" on the floor, and you can still give Mekanek an extendable neck. I also like the second head that's included for the Road Ripper, which is a nice touch.

    I just saw this posted on the official MOTU instagram page by Mattel. I wonder if this is a hint of the next vehicle in Origins?:

    - Skeleoton Warriors 2-Pack set
    - Screech/Skeletor 2-Pack set.
    - Snakemen 4-Pack set, and that could have different assortment, my hope it will be: Lord Grasp, Lady Slither, Reptilax and Terroar.

    Why in hell the Horde Troopers variants (red and black) weren't offered like this to this day? Sigh...

    Someone from the other board has posted this:

    This is from my contacts in the industry, posted in the speculation thread a few weeks ago-

    Wave 12 (Spring 2023)

    Tung Lashor
    Snake Armor Skeletor
    Hypno
    Roboto minicomic redeco

    Wave 13 (Summer 2023)

    Snake Teela
    Snake Trooper (not sure if this is a Snakeman army builder or a Snake Horde trooper)
    Slamurai
    King Randor redeco (probably 200x)

    Deluxe Wave (Summer 2023)

    Dragon Blaster Skeletor
    Snake Face

    Exclusives

    Moss man (Walmart)
    Infiltration Guard (Online retailers)​
    Even though it sounds more likely these are the correct SKUs, Mattel could change things at any given moment...
