    Yay! Obviously this is the figure I have been waiting for. This is really the only figure on my "A list" that I haven't already gotten.

    To be honest, I kind of left the line after Mattel...

    It's just a discussion for the sake of exploring the issue. Why talk about anything on the Internet? :) The discussion would die on its own if no one found it interesting.

    Hyperbole aside, I've seen threads on this forum two years in a row now in which the thermometer is threatening to fall short of 100% within a day or two of the deadline and people post that they're...

    Actually I believe the position is based on Mattel's past actions and the precedents they have set as a result. There have been numerous examples of Scott and Mattel saying one thing and then doing...

    $110 vs. $700+ (after factoring in average shipping costs)? I think you could pick up Ram Man and a handful of other figures at the BBTS markup and still come out far, far ahead of buying the entire...

    There seems to be a lot of splitting of hairs about the definition of "concept character" here. In my opinion, the issue isn't whether something is "concept" or not - it's whether something is...

    I may be minimizing them, and I apologize if that came off wrong. I'm in the same boat myself - I'm sure that the broader audience has also never heard of Lizard Man or Fang Man, but I love those...

    I tend to agree, there are far too many concept characters for my taste. A large part of the reason that I don't subsribe (and never will) is because I don't know what I'm buying and I've learned...

    Makes little difference to me - this all boils down to simple mathematics. The money I save by passing on figures like Netossa and the Fighting Foe Men will go toward picking up the handful of "must...

    Too funny, and very well done! I have to admit, I wasn't originally planning to pick up CGM... but now I'm on the fence. If he comes with the jawbridge accessory, that would probably put me over...

    I agree as well. I think Fang Man came out perfectly just the way he is, and fits very well with the rest of the Classics line. My hope is that they give that same treatment to the other characters...

    Diorama. I don't really have the money or space for a full playset. If it can't fit on the shelf, it doesn't go on display (I'm already cheating by putting the Windraider on top of the cabinet)

    I voted B list. He was one of my favorites as a kid, and I'd be disappointed if he didn't make it into the line.

    Is he Ram Man or Mekaneck important? Probably not. I'd put him very close to...

    The scare tactics designed to get people to buy the subscription are early this year! :) I expected us to at least get into March.

    It's good that TG is reaching out to the community, but I...

    Allow me to cancel at any time without penalty and allow me to selectively opt out of any SKUs that I don't want each month. :)

    Talon Fighter.

    Tough one, because I'd really like to see the Dragon Walker, too. But I'll give my vote to Talon Fighter since (in my opinion) it has the better shot of winning.

    No impact, I wasn't going to subscribe anyway.

    Given the choice, I'd rather give the $60 to BBTS and just get Shadow Weaver than get stuck with a bunch of figures I don't want (I'm already saving...

    One raider and one BGEL after 10 minutes and four WSODs.

    I chose "Wait and See." There's really a short list of half a dozen figures that I consider "must have" (mostly vintage - a couple FILMation).

    I sometimes pick up other characters along the way,...

    I view it as Secret Identity. He-Man basically is Adam with more power.

    The reason he keeps it a secret is the same reason that he reverts back to Adam at all (and doesn't just stay He-Man 24/7)....

    It still seems strange that they'd put Count Marzo on the banner but not have him show up for the sale. Not that I'm a big Marzo fan, but it does make you think.

    Vehicle.

    Granamyr is a cool character and all, but I'm a little concerned about (A) The $80 price tag, (B) Finding a place to display him. Plus, I have a lot more nostalgic attachment to the...

    Exactly right! Some of those old bios floating around are really out there in terms of fitting into the overall mythos. Just because someone in Mattel's marketing department decided to write the...

    Yes. Insufficient knowledge of what I would be buying is one of the main reasons I don't subscribe. As it stands, I have to assume that there will probably be lemons thrown unexpectedly into the...

    Wouldn't faze me. :) I'd just give my money to BBTS instead of giving it directly to Mattel, exactly as I'm doing for Shadow Weaver. I'm willing to pay $60 for one figure since I'm saving a lot...
