    Let me preface this by saying that I don't think that these "chase" figures should be done, or, at the very least, that they should be included in the subscription, but a "chase" for non-subscribers....

    For me, there were multiple reasons why I wasn't really on-board for the giants. The biggest was that they used the same rubber-band construction for the hips- I'm not confident that these would hold...

    I had similar issues- I realized that I never received my December subscription items, so I called a few weeks back, and they were sent to me. Fast forward to trying to buy the serpentine King Hiss,...
  4. I am a subscriber, and I pretty much never buy...

    I am a subscriber, and I pretty much never buy extras of past/subscription items in early access; Early Access, originally, seemed like kind of a reward for subscriber loyalty, to make sure we had...
  5. I think Mattel missed their chance to do a...

    I think Mattel missed their chance to do a specialty-market line for brick and mortar stores with the Filmation sub- iconic looks of well-known characters that would trigger strong feelings of...
  6. ToyGuru had his issues, but I feel like he...

    ToyGuru had his issues, but I feel like he basically said what he could, and it was evident there were limitations on how open he could be. He never pretended otherwise. I agree with what Jawbridge...
  7. I think with the 200X line, Jeremy (and the org)...

    I think with the 200X line, Jeremy (and the org) basically knew Mattel could have been handling things better, and did a good job of making sure collectors were acknowledged, and got some...
  8. Not completely true- there was a video posted...

    Not completely true- there was a video posted online while the subscription sign-up period was still open- I think it was the PixelDan one, not official Matty, but it was publicly posted in avenue...
  9. Well... some (maybe slightly good) news, at...

    Well... some (maybe slightly good) news, at least- I spoke with Brady at MattyCollector; he said he doesn't know much more about the King Hsss issue than has been posted on the MattyCollector forum,...

    I call my right fist "Prince" and my left fist "Adam." :hmlol:
  11. Thanks. I think too many people are just looking...

    Thanks. I think too many people are just looking at their individual situations, and not considering the big picture enough. For international MOTUC fans (which there are MANY of), shipping is even...
  12. Thanks for the info. No, you certainly haven't,...

    Thanks for the info. No, you certainly haven't, you just inferred that No-Ah and myself were like people who have annoyed you in the past by perpetually whining, then taking no action. I appreciate...

    What No-Ah said. Also- I have collected this line from the beginning, back to SDCC King Grayskull. I have gotten the subscription every year, and every mini sub, every weapons pak, vehicle, Comic Con...
  14. Poll: Please don't call it a 'bonus' figure- that's...

    Please don't call it a 'bonus' figure- that's like calling an unexpected tax charge a 'bonus government appreciation fee.'
  15. Yeah, I'm kind of surprised that someone with so...

    Yeah, I'm kind of surprised that someone with so many posts, Bronze Warrior, etc. is doing counter-productive trolling. Oh well.
    I'm just trying to figure out WHO I can actually contact at Mattel...
  16. I guess my issue is that I CAN'T think of a worse...

    I guess my issue is that I CAN'T think of a worse thing that Mattel has done with this line, other than maybe the Fisto situation. I can live with occasional bad design/aesthetic choices-...
  17. Poll: I would sell of my Classics- Some of my vintage...

    I would sell of my Classics- Some of my vintage pieces would be much tougher to replace than any of the MOTUC figures.
  18. This is actually a pretty quick turn-around- this...

    This is actually a pretty quick turn-around- this year, the non-attendee sets of the G.I. Joe convention figures (not the at-con exclusives; those all sold out at the convention) didn't ship until 3...

    We'll just get a 'Dare' each month for the next 6 months... 'Whoops!'

    Poll: I voted "Other." For me, the updated vintage line...

    I voted "Other." For me, the updated vintage line will never be complete without them, but I get that they're VERY niche, and many, probably a majority, of MOTUC could do without them. I chose...
  21. I agree with the last couple of posters- I would...

    I agree with the last couple of posters- I would really prefer that no figures be 'stactions,' but would be cool with some characters, particularly smaller ones, having more limited articulation,...
  22. Personally, I am the opposite of excited about...

    Personally, I am the opposite of excited about what Matty is doing. I have been a line-long subscriber (include all mini subs), and they have completely turned me off to the line, and buying anything...
  23. That situation would still force subscribers who...

    That situation would still force subscribers who want every figure to pay unnecessary shipping for Dare. Anything that costs me extra is pretty unsatisfactory, in my opinion.
  24. I really don't understand the comparison- it's...

    I really don't understand the comparison- it's basically the opposite of that: It was lined up for 2015, and the new brand team dropped the ball, didn't pay attention, and forgot about it, so they...
  25. There is zero risk- as referenced, they are like...

    There is zero risk- as referenced, they are like Stormtroopers to Star Wars. I collect Star Wars and G.I. Joe- Stormtroopers, classic blue Cobra Soldiers, and classic Cobra Vipers never, ever become...
  26. There's no good reason that these haven't been...

    There's no good reason that these haven't been 'Collection Essentials-' it would be like printing money if Mattel made more of them.
  27. I mean no disrespect, but I am confused by the...

    I mean no disrespect, but I am confused by the point you're trying to make. Scott left in October of last year, and as of then, the King Hsss torso was still slated to be part of the 2015...
  28. If you're talking about Scott, that happened...

    If you're talking about Scott, that happened AFTER his watch. I think that was what you were saying?
  29. Quoting for truth.

    Quoting for truth.
  30. I feel like people have different ideas about...

    I feel like people have different ideas about what 'transparency' means than I do. I am going, literally, from the Merriam-Webster definition of 'Transparent' here:

    a : free from pretense or...
