    Add me please. This new He-man and Skeletor are crap.
  2. There's so much money put into making a movie......

    There's so much money put into making a movie... there's no doubt that the money men will be all over it, focus grouping this, lowest-common denominatoring that... and with Mattel's lack of a...

    1. I realize companies don't fear this. But if they have any hopes of recapturing old fans of MOTU who have been out of comics and toys for the last fifteen years, they should fear this. I don't...
  4. I respectfully disagree with you on 2 points,...

    I respectfully disagree with you on 2 points, though I believe you have every right to your opinion.

    1. I think they are dragging Teela through the mud. I could list a dozen reasons why I feel it...
  5. Thanks for the explanation. I know I'm an...

    Thanks for the explanation. I know I'm an idealist and a lot of what I suggest I know businesses won't implement. I also realize the economics. But it seems to me that if you're regularly missing...

    I see where I misinterpreted your statement and I apologize for passing it along as such.

    But I have a question for you since you work in the industry. Does MOTU have to be a monthly? I realize...
  7. I don't blame the artists involved - I blame...

    I don't blame the artists involved - I blame management, especially Mattel's. The buck stops with Mattel. Period.

    If writers and artists are changing characters and settings because they don't...

    In general I'd have to agree with you. There's little worse than art/entertainment created by a committee. Give me a visionary's creation any day.
  9. Don't give them any story ideas! DC - if you are...

    Don't give them any story ideas! DC - if you are reading this, stay away from Jerry Springer and Maury Povich. These are not good resources to build stories off of.



    AHHHHHH! You got me...

    I agree. I don't need to see a Lindsay Lohan version of Teela on the screen.
  11. Well apparently she eats furniture, so she'll...

    Well apparently she eats furniture, so she'll probably die of internal splinters pretty soon. I quit reading this comic a while ago but have been keeping up with reports here on the org and...

    No one's asking for an exact number. And Mattel...

    No one's asking for an exact number. And Mattel has stated, in general terms, how much extra stock over DOS they've made in the past. I know they did with the Sorceress. So why not actually answer...
  13. Theoretically I'd love to see an animated...

    Theoretically I'd love to see an animated feature. Maybe something along the lines of a 3rd season of MYP. Or even a little darker/more mature.

    But not if it has anything to do with these comics,...
  14. If there's anything worse than killing characters...

    If there's anything worse than killing characters off left and right it's bringing them back from the dead. I wouldn't be surprised if they went this route.
  15. Skeletor is blue, cartoon elephants are often...

    Skeletor is blue, cartoon elephants are often blue, so maybe that was the genius idea? :sksad: Skeletor's legs and feet also look monstrously large and dispraportionate to his body, so maybe those...
  16. A lot of the improvements we've seen in MOTUC for...

    A lot of the improvements we've seen in MOTUC for example have only come after years of more or less constant grousing. I say if you dislike these comics, keep raising a ruckus. There needs to be...
  17. I'd agree with you if this were the first time...

    I'd agree with you if this were the first time they'd changed something to, imho, horrible effect. But there's a pretty long, growing list of this kind of change that many of the fans don't won't or...
  18. Well Mattel doesn't really care all that much...

    Well Mattel doesn't really care all that much either, so I doubt they'd go looking for a comics team that would care. Bling bling bling.

    I think they did a great job making a skeleton bust, but it's not really Skeletor to me either. I understand what you say about them having to get licensor approval and be in line with Mattel's...

    I didn't vote (and didn't sub). But TG's threats of no DOS for some figures after last year's SDCC was the final straw for me that caused me to quit the line entirely. If TG hadn't pulled this...
  21. I voice my displeasure with how the line is run,...

    I voice my displeasure with how the line is run, but I never rooted for the line to fail. Congratulations to everyone on getting another year of figures. I hope there is an add on too and that...
  22. We don't know what their break even point is. But...

    We don't know what their break even point is. But even overlooking that fact, Mattel has already spent money on 2014. If they totally cancel the line, then all that expense is a loss. If 100% were...
  23. I don't think we know that 90% would be a loss. I...

    I don't think we know that 90% would be a loss. I really doubt 100% is their break even point. More likely 100% is the figure they need to hit to meet their required profit margin. But I don't listen...

    I never said or implied that they were. I posited the argument that maybe they should. I stated my opinion that I wish they would for the sake of the long term health of the brand MOTU. Most of my...

    It's hard to say. I totally see your point. And a lot of people in the business clearly think this way and they must have reason to do so.

    On the other hand, the writing is on the wall. The whole...

    You can't lose sight of the long term though. There isn't a thread asking people to post here if you've dropped the line due to Mattel's behavior. And even if there was a thread, like you said most...

    I hadn't bought a toy (outside of video games) in probably 10 years when I found out about MOTUC just before Battle Cat and Trap Jaw were released. I nabbed them, a reissue Man-at-arms, and grabbed...

    Everyone has their own reasons and their own priorities. But you won't see a lot of those reasons being mentioned here because those customers have mostly been driven off by now. The anger over this...

    I personally don't have a problem with the guy taking a vacation to be with family. I don't think it's anyone's business what the guy does in his personal time.

    But if MOTUC, DCIE, Ecto-1 and...
