Just opened up mine, I actually like Shadow Beast more than I expected to. Bow is Bow, pretty much, they've done a good job but I'm just not that attached to the character. And still don't much care for drag wearing He-Man.

Still, coming months are more to my tastes, so roll on Battle Armour Skeletor and King Hssss

Mine arrived today too!!
SB looks great! Way cooler then Gygor..
I have two subs, so I opened 1 PED He-Man, and left the other MOC. I placed 1 POG sticker on the MOC bubble, and the other on my MOC He-Ro.

DaBigFella, I have a Bow for you! I'll be free anytime after Sunday lunch time. Smile

Yeah, it works fine.
It's fun to watch figures get carried round on it, but it's kinda pointless, and the monorail gets in the way at the back of the central tower...

I received my Feb sub package a few days ago.

All seems to be well, except for PE He-Man's left elbow joint being warped almost to the point of the forearm popping off, dude to the stress of being bent by the packaging.

Sad

I hope Mattel moves to generic poses for ALL of their figres soon, as this isn't the first time I've had MotUC figures arrive with messed up joints due to their wacky in-package poses.

Hmm, you're right.. It is a little off. It shows in the photo, but it's not noticable in person. Smile

Got my Hsss and BA Skelly yesterday. I quite like (non snake form) Hsss, despite the annoying shoulders, but I love BA Skelly. He was always one of my faves as a kid, but I wasn't fully taken with the classics version until I had him in hand. Doesn't hurt that he has the best face paint on any of my skeletors so far either.

Roll on Panthor...

I can't believe that Matty continues to use Digital River for their e-businesses after the endless crap that customers have had to coninually deal with, both en masse and individual cases. Actually check that, I can believe it actually, but it still sucks and shouldn't be accepted, let alone continually tolerated.

Anyway, sorry to hear you got screwed around Sam. So, you getting sent both Hsss and BA Skeletor? As both were a part of last months sub.

thats the weird thing ,they only said they sent Hsss on that, so apart from being ticked off about the lateness, Im not even sure if BA is in it.

I did order a ba separetly though along with an evil lyn, and they shipped out quite quick according to the emails, but not the actual subscription! !

Received my March figures 2 days ago.

Really like both, particularly Hssss. Surprised how much I like him in both forms. This is a figure I might consider buying a second of down the line to display both.

The BA skullface and Evil lyn arrived today, is it me or is her face an even brighter yellow than before ?

Skullface very cool, his torso was quite stuck but eventually coerced it into swiveling!

TOo bad Hssman isn't here though, stupid subby handlers !!

I was thinking of grabbing a Lynn since my original had a chip taken out of her face where the helmet has pulled away from the glue. But I might just wait for a 200x version.

Well weirdly *but pleasantly* the subby BA turned up today... with Hsss who supposedly got shipped yesterday!

My goodness I have no idea what on earth is going on, but I got them and thats all that matter s!

Hsss is very cool, I actually like the snake form more than I though, enough that I am probably going to leave it that way! I have him doing a punch that has both arms coiled aroudn each other, POWERPUNCH!!

Small issue is that the click into the torso doesn't seem that stable though?
