    And it is ending. Scott never specifically said Classics would continue ad infinitum as long as the sales would support a new line each year. But he has said that the 'Classics' expression is being...

    Also remember Scott's comment that 2015 is, "pretty much baked in at this point". What I take from this is, if a 200x mini-sub was planned then figures are probably quite far into at least the...

    For those already talking about the end of the MOTUC line at the end of 2015; Scott said two very important things during his farewell speech recently on AFI that deserve repeating.

    1) Mattel...

    The problem is Scott having hand-held the MOTUC line and its fandom for its entire run has led many to believe that he's the one who has ensured this line remains solid and on track each month. His...

    It's a two part vehicle with an action figure and is being manufactured for a line at severely fewer amounts than would be made for retail. In other words it makes complete sense that the price...

    The good thing is I wholeheartedly doubt that the battle ram will be a quick sell-out. That gives you some time before you'd have to pull the trigger before potentially missing out.

    I'm fine with this personally ---^ The last two months of the year are fairly heavy as it is, so any chance to push the higher priced items around and spread the wealth the better.

    LOL... true enough I'm sure. Although he did make it sound like he was leaving as a direct result of being overworked and not compensated accordingly. He has a wife and daughter after all, or so he...

    Spinmaster eh? Well, hopefully Scott can help them get their stuff together. Other than their somewhat innovative Tron Legacy line from a few years back I've never been a huge fan of their products.

    Did anyone else get the impression from Scott's recent voice interview with AFI that he'd been overworked and under paid at Mattel? This makes me wonder if he felt like the voluminous hours he put...

    Good point. The problem is I doubt we'll see anyone stepping in to fill Scott's shoes in the same way. Scott's passion for the brand and as a fellow collector is what created what's known as the...

    Will I enjoy any future lines Scott works on? Probably, depending on which lines those are. But I would never "follow" Scott and buy a particular line simply because he's put his stamp on it. No,...

    Emiliano, God love him, is certainly passionate about the brand, but he's already stated through FB that he's not qualified nor interested.

    Scott's been a huge presence in this line since day one and I don't feel that MOTUC would have continued to have the support, fan-interaction, sales, and ultimately its major driving force without...

    I also thought the announcement was a joke. Scott, leaving the line before the official end of MOTUC!? Why would he do such a thing? Where does this leave the line in general? Will the quality and...

    Queen Angella looks fantastic! Too bad her release is so far off, but the anticipation will be worth it once she's in-hand finally.

    The way I understand the Tier system as Scott described its function; it operates more as a baseline for production. At Tier 1 fewer figures are produced because the minimum quota specific to that...

    Although Scott adequately re-explained the Tier system he didn't say whether MOTUC 2015 hit high enough numbers to warrant an add-on sub next year. Rumors about rumors and of rumors abound, but I...
