    Valar MOTUgus.

    I think 2015 is about as an appropriate time as any to call it a line. At this point, there are no real (true) A-list carrots to dangle over our faces.

    For me, personally,...

    A good compromise might be a single-carded version that comes with a battle-damaged alternate head. (And make them in evergreen quantities.)
  3. Obvious choices would be He-Man and Skeletor....

    Obvious choices would be He-Man and Skeletor. They are the quintessence of the line and mythos.

    If they were off the table, it would be Man-E-Faces and Trap-Jaw.

    Just to make it interesting, if...

    Exactly.

    ...And to preemptively answer the inevitable Mattel counter of "would you want it to take the spot of another figure?" I would say YES. As someone who already owns Shadow Weaver, I'd...

    "Big" for me would be Mattel acquiring the ThunderCats license (after Bandai's inept handling of it), the planning of a ThunderCats Classics line in the same scale/style/bucks as MOTUC, followed by...

    What an uncharacteristically smooth experience. In fact, it was the complete polar opposite of the ordeals to get Strobo and Spirit of Hordak last year.

    Robot Knights + 1

    Besides Horde Troopers these would have to be the quintessential MOTU army-builders.

    Even worse, in the 2011 Black Friday flash sales she sold for $18.

    Or maybe a 3-pack with one repainted "Captain" variant and two normal troops at a $75 price point. Hotcakes would have nothing on that set.

    Minicomics...without a doubt.

    The fact that a minicomic character was the fan's choice figure winner could also be taken as an indicator that it would be a good way to go.

    The number of figures we "know" would be happening in 2015 (i.e. the unmade vintage) would probably be pretty scant by the time we get to subbing time next year. It kind of already is thin as it is...

    Sub-only, BUT there should be complete transparency on what figures we'd be getting from top to bottom. 2015 should be the end for all intents and purposes, so it would probably be reasonable to...

    This might best encapsulate your experience throughout the process.

    So after being up for 2 months 24% of the sub sales came in just the last 15 hours?

    ...Whatever, I'll take it! :skgrin:

    At 63% it looks like Infinite Earths isn't happening. (Which is probably for the best, unfortunately.)

    Picked up a Grizzlor this morning. He was just on a random shelf and probably a leftover.

    Talking with the cashier, I was told the all-too-familiar story of an obnoxious guy that calls everyday...

    I also planned on picking up a Batusi, but it didn't look like it was in stock at the moment and I wasn't going to take the chance missing out on the Rock Warriors.

    Aren't we all just LOVING that...

    Got them (for $60, I should note), but not without vigorous reloading. Truly an old-school Matty experience.

    I didn't get the email either and I'm baffled as to how they managed to screw that up.

    But, yeah, as the other posts indicate, all you have to do is log-in to the EA page and you should be fine.

    Picked up a Sy-Klone today. They had three of them just sitting there.

    I asked an employee if they had any more in the back and, as indicated by the response, it was a pretty common question. (To...

    Found Faceless One and Carnivus on a high shelf in the toy aisle. -- Leftovers, I suspect.

    After extensive searching, that's all they had. The store was too busy so I didn't want to bother the...

    My long national action figure nightmare is over. At last, I was finally able to snag Mountain Dew Code Red Hordak today.

    Mattel, let's NEVER EVER do "secret" figures again, m'kay?

    They're everything that I hoped they would be. The vintage style battle damage just didn't seem logistically possible while keeping a reasonable price point.

    Nevertheless, there could still be a...

    Agreed. It is a really cool-looking figure and this frenzy concocted by a calculating Matty team is not the reason I want it. I'm going out of my way to work through "Mattyisms" to get him. However,...

    I have to say that this was really a disheartening experience this morning. I was up early, online, and refreshing the hell out of that page. The moment he showed up, I had him in my cart and...

    I will not be a happy camper if Horde Troopers aren't filling this year's army-builder slot. That, for me, is #1 on the "must-makes."

    Besides the obvious gap-filling of the vintage line (Mantenna,...

    I'm fine with prices, but given what we're paying, I'd really like to see the petty cost-cutting measures (gummy weapons/body parts, painted-over black plastic, etc.) come to an end. The philosophy...
