    If they did in fact take it upon themselves to "improve" the castle, right back to its original specs (that would actually be restoring, not improving) then I would reconsider my position and buy...

    I ordered one when they first went up, based entirely on the specs and assurances given at the time.

    I like B the most. C is a close second, as it represents the other definitive style He-Man was typically presented in. But for me, I personally would love to have B in my collection.

    Honestly, that doesn't sound like a plan so much as an ultimatum. And even if everyone does give 'til it hurts, pulling victory from the jaws of defeat, it does nothing to solve the underlying...

    Alas, poor Trap Jaw, although not a great man, he was a man who strived for greatness. It is still so hard to accept he was taken, far, far too soon, by some "loose cannon." He will be remembered...

    In lieu of the sub, sure. But what about the special honor of having an actual figure based on the winning design? They should, if nothing else, provide the winner with one of the prototypes.

    Wow - I hadn't considered this until reading your post, but there is a real chance this whole create a character thing could end up the same way it did with Fearless Photog back in the eighties.

    Your post pretty much sums up my feeling perfectly.

    DR has cost Mattel so much of my business it's ridiculous. I used to have two subscriptions for Masters, usually buying extras on sales day;...

    Stances on gun rights and personal ownership aside, this was a very determined and disturbed individual who was intelligent and innovative.

    No, I will not be buying a sub.

    I no longer will purchase anything through Mattycollector due to severe issues with billing and service. I will still support the line through other vendors, though.

    Who are these bad guys? I ask because, as far as I can tell, no one is rallying for the end of the line. An end to the problems of the line, yes, but that is an entirely different concept.

    The video is pretty cool and does a good job showcasing the set. But I still just can't feel anything but indifference toward this one.

    I don't dislike the figure, but it's just not for me.
