Sub Buddy Program
I had a thought on Club Eternia Sub Match Making/Buddy Program:
Would people be willing to sub up together or through someone else to just get the pieces they want?
Person A is a PoP fan. They want each PoP figures only.
Person B is a MOTU fan. They want MOTU figures only.
Person C is a New Characters Only fan. They only want the never before made characters.
Person D is a NA fan. They only want NA.
If the four of them got together to buy a sub, that would be 1 more guranteed sale (which hate or not is all that Mattel is worried about right now). Either one of them (Person A, B, C, or D) buys it and ships out the figures or they go through someone else (i.e. Me) who buys the sub and collects the money and ships out the figures. That way no one is stuck with unwanted figures (i.e. the current FFM issue). They could do monthly subs to save on shipping. It's sort of what Big Bad does.
It could also be a way of getting a second sub for just the figures you want.
Would anyone be interested in something like this?
If you think it would be something you'd be interested in, post in this thread. I'll see what I can do to link possible subscribers.
I think the basics I would need are location (USA or International) and what you would be interested in.
It will be on a first come first serve basis.
I'm in Virginia and I'd be interested in Filmation and MOTU.
- Or -
I'm in Pennsylvania and I'd be interested in PoP.
- Or -
I'm from Japan and I'd be interested in Filmation, Mini-Comics, NA, and PoP.
- ETC -
Following in the lines of blackiecats and Missile-Toe... :hmgrin:

I've had a look at the newest figures due out and I'm more interested in the PoP figures that are coming out soon.. so i guess i could get on board for that? I don't know how it's going to work or anything yet.. but i thought i'd let you know i might be willing to do this!
I am from the UK so if that makes it difficult i understand. But any more info on how this would work, please let me know! :)
It might actually benefit you in the long run. If you find a stateside sub partner, I can promise you that you would pay significantly less in shipping cost if they go to that person initially than if you had ordered directly from Mattel.

With the subscriptions we're talking aobut.. when does it start? Jan 2014? Sorry i'm pretty new to subscriptions! :hmgrin:
I havnt sub'd yet but I found someone that wants my NA figures
Im looking for someone that will buy the POP figures at cost
I do not want ANY POP so they can be shipped one at a time or all at once to save you on shipping
I have subbed since the beginning and already have an arrangement with a PoP fan for those figures. I'm looking for a NA fan to take those figures off my hands for cost plus shipping to you. I'll even eat the shipping to me.
NA fans out there, PM me!
PM Dayvid! And Dayvid PM Hordeall!

Or if you come to an agreement and need a "broker" to buy the sub, collect the money, and ship out the pieces let me know as well.
I have messaged hordeall!
I'll tell you what happens :)
I PMed Cairo. No word back yet.
I just need Two-Bad and Modukok. I am in Louisiana
I will sub too if someone buys my NA and POP figures. I am in VA.
If anyone else is interested in subbing, i am still open to buying people's PoP figures. PM me price of shipping etc. I am in talks with someone else but not sure what's happening there...
This is a great idea .. . Kudos
I'm from PA and interested in everything vintage including nameless one and the sled combo

Anyone else want to do this? Based on postage to UK... i'm wanting the PoP figures from the sub!
PM me :)
I'm in need of someone to take the NA and POP figs off my hands, and I'll buy a 2014 Sub.
Please contact me ASAP if interested! Please email me at: email@example.com
I'd sub If i can partner with others. I'm in Minnesota and only want vintage MOTU. (Of course the unnamed one too.
What im doing is this- I wrote out the names of the reveals from sdcc on both subs. With DC,I only wanted to keep one, MOTUC all. So basically, I add a sub whenever I get full preorders on what's been revealed.
IŽll try putting my name in this as I am not sure I can afford a full sub (Ive been wrestlng with it, trying to make it work in my head). My real needs are all of the POP figures. I would also be looking for Two Bad as well (him and Flying Fists He-Man are all I need to complete recreating my original vintage collection), but I would be willing to sacrifice him if need be (despite no DOS). I am in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
