While this second sale ended up being a good thing for some customers........being able to choose whether or not to get a cosmetically defective figure for full price and shipping....................I hope this puts an end to Mattel's "double-shipments" sales.
I didn't like the fact that this happened with Vikor and King Hssss, and Mattel didn't offer reduced shipping for their error. I really hope this was a big "backfire" for Mattel.
In the case of Roboto, all figures were available for purchase on his release date, and the subscribers who received the figure and complained probably weren't enough in number to get the word out to the masses. Also, Mattel jumped on the "he's a robot so it doesn't really make a big difference" excuse that some buyers had expressed. This doesn't even take into account all of us who received a Roboto with two left biceps or two right shoulders.
As far as I'm concerned, Mattel should give everyone a 50% off on the next variant(optional purchase) figure due to the Goddess fiasco.
First release He-Man, Goddess, Roboto, and now King Hsss, all flawed merchandise that cost FULL PRICE, and Mattel hasn't once offered some type of credit or discount on anything for it. :hmshift:
i'll buy another hsss for display.
i was waiting for the 15th
i was going to make a custom out of him.
Also, I don't think MOTUC is crap. I'd love to know how you came to that assumption. I like most of the figures. If a figure has a factory flaw, I have the right to skip it and the right to defend my decision when I'm called out for it.
Ok guys, apparently you missed guitargod694's post. This back and forth has to stop. Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, and should be able to state it without other people ridiculing or belittling them for it. If you insist on bickering, take it to PM. Any further back and forth will be deleted, and the poster will be subject to warning/account suspension.
Please respect your fellow posters and their opinions.
I guess the fans HAVE spoken…he sold out.
I can understand that no one wants to buy a "noncorrect/damaged" figure like King Hsss.
Mattel must send the bad Versions of King Hsss back to the manufactur in China.
Mattel must sell us figures which are 100% OK.
I bet Mattel took the figures of Matty.
I got him through the subscription and I cannot really tell that the shoulders are reversed. They seem okay to me.
