    If I'm being perfectly honest with myself, I wasn't crazy about a lot of the sculpts on these...it was the card art that sold them for me.
    If they put the new origins figures on these same cards I'd probably faint, but I'm ecstatic that we're getting new mini-comics, and the artist they found has been able to mimic Alfredo Alcala's style perfectly.

    I understand, I feel that way about some of their Universal Monsters.

    Me three. It really is 50/50 with sculpt and packaging. I still need to pick up wave 2 of Monsters.

    I always liked the MOTU characters but not their vintage muscle bodies.

    I received my sets today, S7 did a great job with the felines and the packaging is slick. On a bittersweet note, the backs of each box feature Reaction MOTU checklists and the large anount of variants is depressing.

    Depressing because you want to collect them, or depressing because they made so many variants to buoy the line?

    The latter. I collected several variants in the line, either because I liked their aesthetic or because they seemed pertinent to play. But I'd have much rather had 10-12 more classic characters.

    Hmmm. All the MOTU figures, Reaction included, have disappeared from the Super 7 site. Licensing restriction pending the release of Origins?

    A bit discouraging, since I wanted some dupicates including the felines.

    I do, too! I couldn't afford to order two feline sets at once last month...

    Could a third-party vendor like BBTS have snapped up all the stock if the S7 license expired?
