If you don’t want to wait they are in stock at EE for $23.99 each and free shipping if you get them both.
Yeah, I had been eyeing EE for a couple of weeks now but was going to wait until they had Teela in stock. I just went with Amazon to save a few bucks. Classic Teela is the only one left from wave 4 I don’t have so now I’ll just wait til Amazon or Target has her in stock.

Been wondering this for awhile, but will there be any HeMan or Skeletor figures where the swords of power can separate/combine? Also how well do the Origins vehicles mesh with Masterverse? Still hoping for NE HeMan and Teela to show up somewhere at normal retail prices.
Honestly, the origins vehicles kinda hold the Masterverse guys better than their origins counterparts (kinda my problem with some of them). For sure Stridor and especially the Wind Raider work great with masterverse. I will say your mileage will vary with the Land Shark. They can fit in it, but it's a tighter fit than the other two.

Also just want to say the King Grayskull cape goes great on NE He-Man if you're looking to mix and match or aren't entirely satisfied with King Grayskull:



Also with the Rise of Evil 2 pack going on clearance, I'd recommend that alternate head for NE Skeletor as well if you are going the classic route:

Thanks. I had been wondering for awhile why Mattel hasn’t released any vehicles for Masterverse, and I was guessing the origins vehicles were close enough and they just were hoping fans wouldn’t mind. Battlecat being an exception. I’ll have to track down the Wind Raider but I still see Stridor around. I’m guessing Origins Castle Grayskull is a pretty good fit for Masterverse as well.

Oh and Masterverse Grayskull’ cape for NE HeMan looks like a good idea. It looks good and it’s like a keepsake that current HeMan inherited from his predecessor. Might have to get another Grayskull just for the cape.

Castle Grayskull works "fine" from the exterior, but don't expect them to look great inside of it.

Wind Raider is still like $10 below retail on Amazon

Friggin' figures, lol. Mine & my buddy's Trap-Jaws are due for delivery Thursday. So guess what I found two of at Target this morning? *sigh* AND he's still on sale, where I swear to god I saw something somewhere that said that expired Saturday, which is why I was in such a hurry to take advantage of it last week.

So, I grabbed one (I won't see my friend until Friday anyway, so I can just return mine). :lol:

Can't wait to get home, heat up the head, and slice everything under the teeth off, lol. I like the idea of a Venom-like tongue, but the execution was just not pulled off well, IMO. The teeth kinda come to a point in the middle, which still gives that goofy smile, but I don't want to do a complete overhaul of the face, so I'll just hope the metal jaw covers enough.

Thanks, the only fiddly bit was the belt and loincloth.
I just used a lot of hot water and a small screwdriver. I trimmed the lip of the belt and loincloth before putting them back on and it all came back together nicely.

This turned out WAY better than I was expecting! Made sure to slice under the cheekbones, which pretty much eliminated any semblance of a grin!

The way the teeth come to a point in the middle still bugs me, but I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!

C'moooooooon, New Eternia Beast Man!

Also, I'm already planning on moving the villains to their own shelf. Spikor & Scareglow are on the other side behind the heroes, and they're not heroes! :lol:

Noticed Target had Trap Jaw on sale last week. Saturday is truck day so I waited to see if my store would finally stock him before placing an online order. Unfortunately he was not so I placed an order. Yesterday I stopped in for a few other items and there were 6 Trap Jaws on the shelf AND he was still on sale! I grabbed the one with the best paint apps. I guess I will return my online order when it arrives later this week.

What happened to the 40th anniversary He-Man pre order on bbts?
I finally decided to put my money down for it and I can’t find it. I thought maybe it was just sold out but even links to it from other sites aren’t working for me.

I know I preordered it on BBTS so I looked at my orders but when I click on the page, it’s gone.
