    The uproar wasn't very loud since most subscribers weren't affected. Unfortunately the only way to get Mattel to respond is if customers express an overwhelming amount of displeasure.



    As I...

    I know it falls far short of what was promised but would a drastically reduced price during early access seem like a reasonable compromise?
  3. At the very least they should sell the figure for...

    At the very least they should sell the figure for a drastically reduced rate during early access.
  4. You know Mattel is in the wrong when fans who...

    You know Mattel is in the wrong when fans who NEVER complain about Mattel's decisions are expressing displeasure over this debacle. I personally find the figure to be underwhelming. Earlier, someone...

    It's not just been one bad decision. Don't forget the lack of early access to SDCC exclusives this year, which was explicitly promised by Mattel when they promoted the 200X mini-sub, and the lack of...

    The word entitlement seems to be bandied about any time a significant number of customers raise legitimate concerns about Mattel's business decisions. In this instance customers are entitled to what...
  7. I agree. It doesn't seem like a personal attack...

    I agree. It doesn't seem like a personal attack to me. Moreover, it's hard to logically argue that Mattel's handling of this doesn't seem disingenuous.



    It may be a niche line but they work on...

    I wonder how many accessories and paint apps will be cut on the actual production figures to make up for the lower prices.
  9. I'm not subscribing this time. I made up my mind...

    I'm not subscribing this time. I made up my mind when Mattel decided to no longer offer con exclusives to subscribers during early access. The King Hsss debacle just reinforces my decision.

    The reason why some of us complained about these exclusives wasn't because we wouldn't get our precious figures but because it was a step toward marginalizing subscribers and eroding the value of the...

    It's ironic that some of the fans who have no issue with convention exclusives are unhappy about the lack of early access for SDCC items this year. :hmwink: Mattel doesn't seem to be giving the...

    Lentzquest made an excellent point: the sun is setting on MOTUC. Is the subscription model fading out of existence, too? No. Mattel will be targeting many of the same fans for their new sub based...

    Quite frankly we don't know what options Mattel might have been open to when they were approached by the con organizers. All we know is Val's stated preference that the figures not be made available...

    Val made it clear that HE wanted these to be strictly limited to Power-Con:

    There are fans on both sides of this issue guilty of not looking at this decision in the context of the big picture. Subscribers are the life blood of the line, not convention goers. It hasn't been...

    G.I. Joe and Transformers have significantly larger fans bases and are retail toy lines. MOTUC is produced in much smaller numbers and exists due to the continued support of subscribers. Business...

    I can relate. I was going to attend Space Ghost Con '97 until they decided to make the exclusives available to non-attendees.
  22. Isn't it terrible how loyal MOTUC fans are...

    Isn't it terrible how loyal MOTUC fans are speaking up and trying to make sure we all have reasonable access to figures?

    Thundercats fans didn't invest in over a hundred figures over the course of...

    He-Man.org is not an altruistic website. It is a for-profit business that generates income through ad revenue. Fans from many websites have promoted MOTUC. Most MOTUC customers are not even members...
  24. It's not just about the three specific Power-Con...

    It's not just about the three specific Power-Con exclusives. Quite a few fans don't want to see this new practice repeated in the future. After all fans have been clamoring for an all-inclusive sub...

    So a large convention, with a broad audience, should get one exclusive that is accessible to everyone at the end of the year and a much smaller convention with a narrow audience should get three...
  26. I agree with you. It is unprecedented. Comikaze...

    I agree with you. It is unprecedented. Comikaze got just one figure and it was available for sale on mattycollector at the end of the year. If Mattel had made these available at the end of the year...
  27. I agree with you. Furthermore, there has been so...

    I agree with you. Furthermore, there has been so shortage of fans complaining about chase figures so I am at a loss as to why anyone would think this decision would be well received.
  28. Ultimately it was Mattel's decision. It doesn't...

    Ultimately it was Mattel's decision. It doesn't help that Mattel's recent justification of doing it to appeal to a wider audience is ludicrous. Mattel could have agreed to produce exclusives for...

    Promote the Masters brand to a wider audience? How broad of an audience are they expecting at a convention specifically for fans of the Masters of the Universe brand? If that is honestly their...
  30. It's not about anger. It's about voting with...

    It's not about anger. It's about voting with wallets. Fans made noise, which is what Mattel encouraged fans to do to let them know what they wanted. Mattel politely informed fans that in this...
