Found all of wave 3 minus She-Ra this morning. Still have never seen wave 2 anywhere.

I really dig this line but I think they go overboard with the brightness of a few of the figures. Beast Man practically glows and Man-E-Faces is bright orange instead of flesh toned. I wonder if the brightness is an effort to attract kids? Seems to me the designs would be enough to catch the eye, no need to turn up the neon.

To be fair Man-E-Faces has always been orange

Ram Man just hit my PoL! Too bad I just shipped. Current PoL is scheduled to arrive today with Land Shark, Battle Armors, and Scare Glow.

My Ram Man shipped as well, along with the MOTU Minis and Vehicles set of 2. Still no Battle Armors or Land Shark though. But I know they'll ship eventually. BBTS has never let me down.

Did Clamp Champ hit for anyone too, or just Ram Man?

No Clamp Champ notices over here.

I opened the Land Shark, and this thing is about as fun as I remember the original being. There are some minor differences, though I'm going off memory and not side-by-side comparison. The seat back isn't removable. That was something I never understood about the original. The rear engine cover doesn't hinge open. It looks like it could, but I can't open it. Which had me second guessing if that was actually a feature on the original! Might have to dig it out, if I have it at all. I know I lost parts to it.

Is it possible to stuff a Classics figure in there? I haven't seen a review where someone does it.

Sorry if I worded that wrong Norm. I meant the MOTU Minis that come with little mini vehicles. The set of 2 are He-Man and Road Ripper and Skeletor and Roton. I know those aren't Origins, but I just mentioned them since they shipped as well along with Origins Ram Man.

And Roufuss, I have received no notice for Clamp Champ either. Just Ram Man.

Thanks all!! As soon as Ram Man hit, I checked Clamp Champ again and preorders were reopen, so I was curious if he had also hit since they are in the same case.

Looks like they sold back out so I must have grabbed a dropped preorder. Pumped to get Ram Man though!

Found wave 4 at Target. So far, I've been able to track down everyone except BA Skeletor, Ram Man, and Clamp Champ. I haven't seen Trap Jaw, but he's in my POL.

I'm getting a little irritated that BBTS hasn't fulfilled my BA He-Man or Hordak despite me placing the order day one. There's definitely an algorithm at work.

I just got notice from BBTS Wave 4 is shipping.

And Joda, I haven't got my Battle Armor figures shipped yet either. I have x2 BA He-Man and x1 BA Skeletor, and nothing yet on either despite many having them shipped. Who knows.
