    Oh Scott, you're turning into a conspiracy theorist. Welcome.

    Looks like we won't have much of a choice.

    That repainted snakemen head won't match both Hiss bodies - looks like it's closer to the original Hiss in colour.
  3. Agree entirely. I made the same point earlier...

    Agree entirely. I made the same point earlier about how all statements from Mattel have been checked and double-checked.

    I'd always say if I thought Scott did something wrong, but he didn't in...

    With respect, no let's not.

    Instead let's force them to honour their contractual commitment.
  5. Absolutely. Anything other than that is reneging...

    Absolutely. Anything other than that is reneging on the deal.

    We know from Scott's time at Mattel that they never said anything that might have repercusions. Every press release / video would have...
  6. Totally agree. I smell a rat here as well - we've...

    Totally agree. I smell a rat here as well - we've always been told it takes ages to get this work done and for a figure to go into production. I think they forgot about the snake form, plain and...
  7. They've acknowledged a promise was made. They...

    They've acknowledged a promise was made. They made sales as a result. I don't know anything about US consumer law, but I'd be surprised if there wasn't a breach of contract going on here.

    There is...

  9. For something that appeared to be double the...

    For something that appeared to be double the height of Castle Grayskull, reducing the scale by a fifth isn't a big deal. It'll still be enormous.

    Regarding the supporting Power Con comment, let's...
  10. Right, but that's different from saying that...

    Right, but that's different from saying that these figures could only exist because of Power Con, which is the perspective some folks have been so adamant about.

    We'd have never seen the Goddess...
  11. I think we need to bury this myth right now....

    I think we need to bury this myth right now. Everything has always been on the table from the start. If different 'repaints/variants' had been requested for PC 2016, there's no reason to think Camo...

    Mine arrived yesterday. Okay so I'm not exactly a POP fan, but I'm not impressed with the generic POP female face and the ugly feathers extension thing. POP can be done well (Spinnerella was a...
  13. Sorry, it's just that you used the word...

    Sorry, it's just that you used the word 'Facebook'. I can't control my deep-seated hatred of that platform. I'll try to pay more attention.
  14. On the first point what's being promoted is the...

    On the first point what's being promoted is the experience. If it takes carrots to get people to go then it wouldn't be unreasonable to say that the experience isn't enough.

    On the second point,...
  15. Make it simpler than that. Pick a price that...

    Make it simpler than that. Pick a price that includes a small contribution to Power Con, let people pre-order them online in the quantities they want.

    That way you get to preserve them as Power...
  16. So true. I really thought they'd turned a corner,...

    So true. I really thought they'd turned a corner, but actually they've taken us back to the days of discontentment. If anyone apart from the organisers thinks exclusionary tactics are a good thing,...
  17. Sticky: Will you assure us that the Power Con figures...

    Will you assure us that the Power Con figures will be made available in decent quantities on Matty Collector as other 'exclusives' have before?
  18. Totally agree with this. Fortunately these...

    Totally agree with this. Fortunately these exclusives have generally ended up on Matty, so I'm hoping these critically important figures do as well. I don't mind missing out on a little Power Con...

    I don't want a bluetooth gimmick, partly because of the potential international shipping problem and partly because it's something that I have no inclination or desire to use. We haven't had action...

    Agreed. I'd be disappointed if it didn't match the art book's size. Can't see why it wouldn't be the same. For £22.50 (Amazon UK) I'd expect nothing less.

    Yes, which suggests that if Charger ever gets made in Classics, it might have to be put to one of those notorious votes.

    In answer to the original question, I think the toy packaging and the...

    I think all this sale tells us about NA is that Mattel is sitting on tons of NA stock they still can't shift, and they're pretty desperate to off-load it. I don't think anyone should get their hopes...
  23. I'll definitely second that.

    I'll definitely second that.

    I'm looking forward to the SDCC reveals even more thanks to these answers. Not long to go!

    I like that Mattel still believes there is a lot of room left in the existing MOTU concept to continue...

    Do you really think so? I think they've been poor from the beginning. From memory the only one I thought was reasonable was Webstor's.

    As a writer I think I was probably put off by the poor...

    Let's not forget nostalgia as a factor. Nor should we forget that the sub arrangement came in way after the line started. The sub forced us into different buying habits. For example, if we wanted...

    The glorm and the blue (Man-E-Faces) demon. Glad this thread has been started. I put a page on my site as a campaign for these two monsters. Both would also be excellent army builders.

    The first two series stand head and shoulders above everything that followed. Of those that came afterwards, The Clash of Arms was probably the best. I don't like the garish colours and mediocre...

    Yes, more of the same please. The only thing I'd change is making the battle damage optional, like they did with the Hover Robots. Army building looks a bit odd when half the figures have exactly the...
