    Anybody remember 2009 when collecting MOTUC was, ya know, fun?

    Forget 2016.

    Recent revelations make it seem like they're doing their best to sabotage 2015.
    Ramping up the conditions and scare tactics like never before. It's as if they don't want it to go...

    This is the stuff I hate; all the dodgy marketing and scare tactics. Happy to leave all this behind.

    Predictions:

    I'm so down on Classics at the moment I'd forgot my 2 quarterly subs were coming.

    I got a £34 charge. Not too bad.

    I think any movie line will likely be a smaller scale.
    They'll want to appeal to a bigger, younger audience which usually means a focus on smaller figures at a lower price point.

    And to be...

    At this point nothing would make me sub. All the happenings since Castle Grayskull arrived have totally sapped all my enthusiasm for this line.

    Then again I have been a completist up to now. So...

    I understand ending the line. It looks better to announce it's the last year than to try for 2016 and see it fail.

    What I don't get are these comments coming through from Scott now about "green...

    I can understand perks for attending conventions. I may not agree with it, but I understand it. Maybe I'd be angrier if I actually cared about the Imp chest or indeed that terrible excuse for a...

    So now Mattel have decided that to stem the flow of outrage they will get Scott to slightly change his stance and make it sound like we may get a Filmation head at some point.

    To me that's worse;...

    I never thought of that but it's spot on. ...

    Yep. It would make a world of difference if he promised the head would be a future pack-in. But as it stands, they're charging $30 for a re-paint and yet again favoring convention attendees over...

    I still can't believe what they've done here.

    Mattel have made some huge messes over the years but this one-two punch of NA Skeletor and Filmation Hordak feels different. Its certainly made

    After today it might be a moot point but I think Saurod.

    Striking look, new tooling, plenty of scope to put in good accessories.

    Basically everything blue Hordak isn't.

    Woah hold on a sec.

    This is $30??!!!

    Anyone else thinking this has to be some sort of bad joke? They can't be this inept.

    It's dreadful.
    I used to be a completist and snap up everything Classics.
    Not any more. They don't deserve out money churning out this garbage.

    The more I look at it the more I wonder what Neitlich and co expected the reaction to be.

    Surely they didn't think we'd be happy with this? They can't be that clueless can they?

    With the mess they've made of this figure and now the coloured-like-Filmation Hordak, I feel no remorse about taking my money and spending it elsewhere.
    Terrible.

    So disappointing.

    I'm no customiser at all but I reckon I could take my existing Hordak and make that.

    This is so lazy and cheap I can't believe it. They couldn't even do a new head?...

    Hi Jack, please could you clear this up for myself and all the other New Adventures fans.

    I risk repeating myself ad nauseum.

    To get back on topic:
    For a variety of reasons, many of which I have explained in detail without hearing a valid counter argument, NA did not rip off Star...

    I didn't say SW didn't have an influence.

    I explained that due to the status of the SW franchise at the time it was unlikely that the makers of the NA cartoon said "let's copy Star Wars! ...

    Exactly.

    Star Wars took inspiration from many places long before other media took things from Star Wars.

    Seemingly there are people believe that SW started all sci fi. I know a few Trekkies...

    MGM:
    Agreed, NA was a sequel. As I said in earlier posts, not enough time had passed to reinvent it totally. They couldn't do what TMNT has done.

    And it is a shame that Mattel dismisses MOTU. ...

    I don't know how old you are obviously, so don't know if you remember or are aware but 1985 to about 1991 was a barren time for Star Wars as a franchise. No new media, no new toy lines. Sure there...

    Well X Wing pilot squadron then.

    Star Wars was as dead as MOTU in 1990. The first successful expanded universe books were released around that time, but it wouldn't be truly revived for kids...

    I'm sorry but to say NA was in any way a rip off of Rogue Squadron is ridiculous.
    As has been said, in 1990 the Rogue Squadron aspect of SW was about as far off the radar as you could get.

    And...

    Again it's the target audience.

    Optimus Prime is a semi in the movies for nostalgia, to appeal to you and me as well as the kids buying the toys. If he was a bat, the older G1 audience wouldn't...
