Might still be worth looking on eBay US for Chinese sellers with a few warehouse boxes of figures and parts -- I got a variety of MOTUC figures that way. Focused on the Horde, the Rebellion and the Snakemen for the most part, with some Powers of Grayskull, New Adventures and traditional MOTU mixed in. Not completist, but got the ones I was after and some fillers, and only really paid way over the odds for Shadow Weaver. There still seem to be people parting out collections too, if you're okay with loose and don't necessarily have to have every accessory.

Cheers for the reminder about Multi-Bot, skipped him first time around due to MISB prices but scored a loose one the other day for sixteen fifty inc. Not 100% complete, but all of the parts and accs for the normal display option.

The Bandai space marine -- https://storage.googleapis.com/spikeybi ... rine-1.jpg / https://spikeybits.com/2020/05/bandai-p ... irmed.html

Which is at least 50% marked up on reasonable price, based on design and build quality (so like virtually everything else 40K-related). Nice of Geedubs to get them out quickly without additional shipping charges for those of us who'd set the order to deliver to a local store last year though.

Thoroughly adjustable as long as you don't mind popping bits back on and having a relatively limited number of poses the weight can hold. You're going to want to get it out of packaging because despite having a window it's packed in multiple layers. Being able to disassemble things fairly easily will help repainters.

The Primaris proportions do work well and look natural, I've got to admit. You can easily imagine the figure moving with the same kind of rapid lethality as the marines in the Astartes fan-series; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bko5Gg ... n8qFcoENLO

Bottom line: nice if you managed to score one, and as a foray into high-end collectibles it's welcome, but the McFarlane one is probably going to be just as good for most people at a fraction of the price.
