Amazon is the only reason I'm still in this game. I've never seen Battle Armor He-Man or Skeletor, Ram Man or Clamp Champ. I've seen Trap Jaw & Man-E-Faces once, but had to leave Trap Jaw behind due to big black paint smears across his chest. Mer-Man is always the one missing when I find his wave. And Scareglow is an Urban Legend. I lucked out finding the Hordak wave @ Target and bought Panthor and the Sky Sled during the Target sale last week. Mer-Man, Roboto, Zodac, & Man-E-Faces arrived from Amazon last week. Orko & Trap Jaw should be arriving soon. I'm really hoping these figures see refreshers in the future because I'd hate to miss out on Scareglow. And my Walmart is sitting on like 10 Battle Cats so I doubt I'll see flocked Panthor.

I was at a Toys R' Us location I don't usually go to yesterday and, weirdly, they moved all the MOTUO stuff to the adult collectibles area with all the NECA stuff (there's also some ML there, although there's also ML in the regular toy aisles). Not that finding them mattered... still just Sky Sleds and Battle Cats.

Found Hordak, Tri-Klops, Stratos, and Ninjor at Target. Couldn't Remember if I had Stratos, so I left him. Its so hard to find any of the three Licenses I collect, I just stop in any box store when I have to be somewhere near by.

I might end up pre-ordering waves now, since I just don't have time to go hunting, which is sad because that's part of the fun.

That's the only place they've ever been in my TRU. I was really hoping they'd be pushed as the kids toys they're meant to be. They should be alongside the Spin Master DC stuff, not weird anime figures.

The WWE line just announced an oversized Andre the Giant mash up, with what looks like Tytus parts. I don't have any interest in Tytus, but I would buy that Andre if I came across him! He was pictured with a Hogan in battle armor, which I would also buy.

I'm more interested in a Megator than a Tytus for this line - but I'd honestly probably end up buying whichever one comes out first just for the novelty of an oversized MOTU-O figure. Andre looks really neat.

Prior to this I've only seen them (at TRU) on a four-way displayer right at the start of the action figure/LEGO area. I expected they'd end up getting filled into the toy aisles with the Toy Story, wrestling, Power Players, and whatever gimmick of the month TV show currently had toys. Seeing them in the adult collectibles area was pretty shocking. I totally agree with you - these are kids toys and belong WITH kids toys.

I was hoping for a more filmation blue color for Hordak.

I wish that Target exclusive Keldor/Kronos pack would go up for pre order on Targets website. I have had that thing saved to my favorites for over a month, waiting for the moment to order.

That Hordak looks cool. I have it pre ordered on BBTS. I think Mosquitor is in that wave of Deluxe with him. Hopefully we see a pic of him soon too.

Looks like my Deluxe Clamp Champ is shipping from BBTS. So anyone who had him pre ordered there, be on the lookout. Still haven't had my Battle Armor He-Man and Skeletor ship though.

No Clamp Champ for me, but they seem to be getting partial shipments these days. He’s back up for preorder with a Q2 2021 release date.

I'm certain I canceled my Walmart Castle Grayskull preorder when BBTS opened their orders, but I just received an update from Walmart for 5/27. I hope the Walmart preorder really is active, because BBTS is pissing me off. I didn't order any of the recent Hasbro reveals and kind of regret having active Super7 and Mezco preorders with them.

Spotted a fresh case of Hordak, TriKlops, Stratos, and Ninjor this morning at Target.
