Target has let loose the dogs of war this weekend. The very much anticipated and dreaded Rise of Evil two pack. Featuring the ominous Keldor rightful ruler of Eterina along with Kronis before his accident that made him the monster known as Trap Jaw. Both figures are very important to the mythos of MOTU and collectors. This sets up a perfect storm of eager collectors, flippers, poor distribution, and of course Target itself.
I have already seen some posts where collectors are quitting because they couldn’t get this or feel that they won’t be able to. Wait, just wait it out, man. This is the first weekend of partial releases. Follow your inventory finders and heck… Target tells you what stores have them in stock. It will be a hunt but don’t pay those crazy and I mean crazy first day after market prices. This is a toy with an MSRP retail price of $30.00 and we’re only on week one– no way it is worth $150-300. That is the aftermarket just trying to take advantage of the insecurities in the collectors. They are set for a official street date of April 25th so some of them are just hitting early.
Notes about the packaging– Artist Axel Giménez has been doing a knock out job on these. The Battle at the Hall of Wisdom shows us some very nice previews of things to come. Most notably is King Randor Comic Stratos that I have been asking for since day one. Comic Trilogy Klops that one the contest earlier. Mer Man with Lords Of Power that we know is coming out. Evil Lyn in what loos to me her 200x colors and would be listed now as Evil Lyn 2 in wave five.
