No because last I checked Scott is still in charge and never once said she is 200x Evil-Lyn, quite to the contrary he has said they could still do ANOTHER Lyn variant down the line that would be more in line with 200x Lyn.
Iím so glad that Mattel finally started realizing that more than two figures a month is not doing well at all to this line. Plus all the extra stuff outside the sub is really overwhelming.
what reissue figures go on sale for Sept 15th?
is there a page that gets updated?
I don't know what all the fuss is about with these subs. If you don't have the funds to get a sub or cut back on a sub, that's cool and everyone understands. But if your not getting a sub due to some bitter hate of Mattel and what they won't tell you they are releasing, then why are you on here arguing at all, how many years have we gone through this, they will not change, it's managerial logistics, get use to it.
What year has been just a horrible year for Classics where 2 - 4 months in a row you said I don't want that figure, I can not think of one. When I was with TG and Emiliano at the RG Dinner party, he said how excited he was for 2012, and had that sparkle in his eyes. Meaning not just what was mentioned already, but what was to come.
On Eric Treadway's interview, he seemed so excited about Scorpia and how awesome she was going to be, and as far as I know they don't really think much about a figure until they are working on them, meaning she must be on her way in 2012, having her will make my whole year and with Shadow Weaver, Sorceress, Fisto and Khan. That is worth a sub to me. I don't see the Horsemen making any throw away figures, Draego-man never even existed until Con, and I heard no complaints. Have some faith and support the line despite the many DR issues, so I can get my CG sooner than later.:hmgrin:
After the fact and the complaining by some of us, he eventually stated "Well...erm..uh...yeah I mean of course we could always do another Evil Lyn later".
There are several problems with that. First, it's not guaranteed. Second, if they put out an actual 200x Evil Lyn (and by definition the first ever Evil Lyn figure in the Classics line), what was the point of this stupid Battle Ground repaint? That renders her utterly pointless and a total waste of money and a quarterly slot.
It also means that I have now paid for a stupid repaint that should have never been released in the first place, because she should have gotten her friggin 200x dress to begin with.
"Lots of people seem to be freaking out about the lowered production numbers and the fact that fewer subs sold this year.
Can you alleviate fears (or confirm them) and let us know whether or not Mattel is still happy with the brand as a whole, or if recent developments indicate a shift in thought?
The brand is going GREAT, and we are hitting the min number of baseline fan we need. But the lower overall sub sales for 2012 (compared to 2010 and 2011)have caused us to drop a few as yet announced non-sub items we were exploring for late 2012. Additionally the lower 2012 sub sales have caused us to reevaluate how many skus we will include in the sub for 2013. With the baseline going down signifigantly, it is a bit harder to justify to management any additional line explansions."
I'd like to personally thank anyone out there who changed their plans about buying a subscription (or a second one, when they usually buy two) and then encouraged others to do the same. Fewer sub sales = less awesomeness. :hmsad:
Yes, I did.
I understand that some people have no choice in regards to what they can afford, but there are those who "choose" not to be able to afford a sub, or a second sub.
Very, very frustrating.
i get that people either do or do not want a sub... what annoyed me was when people (especially on facebook) were going out of their way to convince other people not to buy subs (whether they actually influenced people or not is debatable, but it annoyed me nonetheless).
The bios help erase the divisions between the eras by incorporating them with general MOTU. We are really starting to see this with NA.
