I’d like to see what they would do with figures like modulok and multibot, I had five of each classics wise and I’ve just picked up a couple of original moduloks, original multibot seems to be expensive though.

I can’t find the quote, but I’m pretty sure that the flocked Panthor exclusive is also going to have special packaging with some flocking on it as well. That’s what they’re doing to justify the price increase.
Sucks for an opener like me, who couldn’t care less about saving packaging. I want the flocked version but not thrilled about paying that much extra for some packaging that will end up in the trash

Yeah, you're right. They said that the box would be flocked as well.

Almost seems kind of passive aggressive.
"You want a flocked Panthor, huh? HERE. The whole @*#&#ing thing is flocked!!!" :lol:

Saw a couple Panthor figures at Target....but I'm holding off for now. I don't think it's going to be too hard to get and I wanted to pick up the new Multiverse figures instead.

I can live with the regular edition of Panthor.

I think that with the exception of Battle Armor Skeletor, I’m caught up with Origins. Series 3 is the latest available? With Merman and such?

If I get the flocked version I’ll probably keep it boxed, too much handling and it would get mange.

Yeah, I think that's it. I haven't read any reports of people finding anything beyond series 3, the BA variants and Panthor.

I still have a lot of catching up to do. I have some stuff pre-ordered at BBTS, but is anyone seeing series 1 or 2 at retailers outside of Walmart? I've only seen He-Man & Skeletor at Target.

Just wondering if I should just pre-order everything I still need from those first two waves at this point.

Very cool to get confirmation of the Wind Raider. I loved that thing as a kid.

I hope they keep making a lot more vehicles in the line, though the big two I hope they crank out are Roton and Stridor (is Stridor a beast or a vehicle? :)). I think the Roton is a pretty safe bet.

On the beast front, would anyone be interested in large scale versions of Zoar and Screech like the vintage line? I secretly kind of hated that Zoar was incorporated into the cartoon as a regular-sized falcon (and not even its own thing). I want them to be giant scary birds again.

Since they already have the Sky Sled, I wonder if a full Sky Sled/Battle Ram will be coming?

The Battle Ram was my favorite MOTU vehicle as a kid. I own the Sky Sled but it always feels incomplete without it's other half. Nice that Wind Raider is coming. I think I will be all in with this line as long as they are easy to obtain which is pretty spotty in my area but I think I just have to be patient and wait for normal retail to catch up. I haven't even seen half the stuff people are seeing at normal retail in other places.
