    When Scott says "It costs $25 to make the figures," I'm sure he's factoring in Mattel's expected profit, not just the production costs, right? No way are they doing this for cost.

    Kind of frustrating when people make you feel like some kind of freeloader even with that size of a haul, eh?

    As much as I would HATE sub-only sales, being a cherrypicker and all, you have a point. Maybe the only way to guarantee subs is to announce that it's the only way going forward to get these toys from...

    You really do have to admire Pixel Dan's heartfelt enthusiasm. I could see people on the fence subscribing just so Dan can get his toys. :-)

    If I had the funds I could responsibly drop on a sub, I might go for it. But at the same time, I don't want every character and the prospect of spending a lot of money for several figures I would...

    I don't think it's a strike as much as waning consumer interest. I doubt very many are actively trying to make a statement by not buying a sub. It's just that a combination of dissatisfaction with...

    I thought that at first, but now I'm quite certain that the line is in danger because Mattel requires a certain number of guaranteed sales to maintain it. Scott is just telling it like it is. It's a...

    Agreed. BBTS basically does everything right that Digital River does not.

    They also have Mekaneck and Dragon Blaster Skeletor up for pre-order (and have for awhile) but no sign of the Snake Men 2-pack, also from September. They have Frosta and Rattlor from October, but no...

    The simple truth is that if Mattel turns this into a toyline in which you have to purchase every figure to get any of them, some of us will just have to accept not getting the figures we want. As...

    If you subscribed for the sub even if there were figures you didn't want out of loyalty to the toyline and to support its continuation, then I commend you. But you cannot expect every fan to do that....

    I can see that a pre-order system might not be as easy to set up or manage, but I wonder if they've looked into it. Personally, I'd be willing to purchase a good number of figures on name alone, even...

    @ToyKing82, I appreciate your perspective on the industry. I can't deny that Mattel needs to have some idea of how many figures they will sell. But why not put into place an advance pre-order system...

    Yeah, to be fair, Toyguru has bosses he answers to and they're likely the ones applying the pressure on him to drive up sub sales. OR, maybe he's doing it himself because he knows that pressure WILL...

    There are always going to be different kinds of collectors. Matty would do best to find a way to cater to both completists AND cherry pickers and collect as much money as possible from both. :hmgrin:...

    Exactly, complaining because the Wind Raider didn't sell out in 2 minutes comes across as amazingly greedy. And Mattel needs to give it more than a week for the subs; a good number of people probably...
