    I think the purpose of the subscription has changed from being a convenient guarantee of income for Mattel when the line was healthy to a scraping the barrel tactic for holding onto dwindling sales...

    Exactly! Can't believe people are complaining about not having had the chance to buy it.
  3. Comparisons to the original four minicomics are a...

    Comparisons to the original four minicomics are a little unfair because they were individual stories and didn't form a continuity. It happened more with the minis that followed to a small degree (The...

    Mine arrived yesterday. Eldor is superb. The attention to detail is very impressive. He probably has the most realistic head sculpt of the human characters. I think he may have usurped the likes of...
  5. Well they did a commemorative version of the...

    Well they did a commemorative version of the vintage line - which were basically the same - and it didn't make much of an impact. New paint jobs might help, but I don't like the idea of gold / silver...
  6. I'm pretty much in agreement with this. A basic...

    I'm pretty much in agreement with this. A basic framework is good, preferably inspired by the vintage artwork and minicomics. The rest is for individuals to make up on their own (as we've done for...
  7. I think it is news, actually. The message is...

    I think it is news, actually. The message is carefully worded, but fundamentally it implies Mattel has a commitment to continuing with Matty Collector. Remember Scott said he believes the hierarchy...
  8. I don't recall figures other than He-Man and...

    I don't recall figures other than He-Man and Skeletor getting a second run, so reissue might be the wrong word in this context. Several were made available on a handful of occasions, but I'm not sure...

    Yeah, the sexualisation of aspects of childhood is inflicted upon youngsters by adults who should know better. Kids just need a chance to be kids.

    A terrible example of political correctness gone...
  10. My answer is no but purely because I don't...

    My answer is no but purely because I don't collect anything outside Classics, the occasional Four Horsemen item and Classic Space Lego.
  11. All the best, Scott. You have achieved great...

    All the best, Scott. You have achieved great things with the Classics. Good luck with your future endeavours.

    Because the Classics have never incorporated Vintage action features.

    I think the appeal of custom figures is less than some people believe.
  14. Ditto for me. Well, that's not quite true - I...

    Ditto for me. Well, that's not quite true - I glance through them when I put them up on my site, but I never absorb the information. To be fair to Toyguru, he's never said fans are obligated to...

    Knowing what DR is like and how poorly they write their messages, it could be real. A genuine DR e-mail should have a job reference number in the subject line. E-mail (new, not a reply) / call them...

    I can't answer this because it's not possible to have more than one ultimate battleground.

    I gave up on the comics because the stories were so bad and insubstantial. Some of the artwork was okay though. I don't see a great likelihood in this being the next interpretation of the line -...
  18. For me it's the variants from the series one and...

    For me it's the variants from the series one and two minicomics of the vintage line. Apart from Goddess, Procrustus, the Alcala Skeletor head and now Oo-Larr, we have nothing else in the main line....

    By suggesting more transparency would lead to fewer conspiracy theories, you're actually contributing to those conspiracy theories.

    I'm not interested in sales numbers. Quite frankly it's none of...
  20. Now would be a really good time to show off some...

    Now would be a really good time to show off some more sculpts. Sure we all know the names of the expected figures, but you can't beat pictures. What would be the harm in Mattel showing us a lot more...

    No one from Mattel has ever e-mailed me to ask about putting something up on vaultsofgrayskull.co.uk. I know mine isn't a blog site, but it has a large Classics section and gets updated monthly...
  22. The first three waves from the vintage line, plus...

    The first three waves from the vintage line, plus Hordak and Scare Glow. Probably some others but I can't think at the mo.
  23. The mystery is why the same number of subs as...

    The mystery is why the same number of subs as last year hasn't been sold, bearing in mind for the first time we know what's coming, and we know this the wrap up year. Do we have the same number of...

    1. Disappointed but not devastated. MOTUC has had a good run. I'd be sorry to see the line end without completing vintage, but there will be loads of gaps in our collections anyway.
    2. I'd still...
  25. I'm not sure about matching figures with...

    I'm not sure about matching figures with replacements either, but it is interesting that the same characters are coming up a lot in this thread. The 200X fans definitely reveal their dislike of BG...
  26. True, but of all the NA characters this one might...

    True, but of all the NA characters this one might be the easiest to shift. I'm definitely not an NA fan, but I actually like this one - and that's the first NA figure I can say that about.
  27. Bringing Faker back is fine and in this case it's...

    Bringing Faker back is fine and in this case it's actually helpful.

    It does show that we never really know what is and isn't actually out of stock. How many more vintage figures are waiting to...

    Since when do the writers use a spelling check?

    Oh yeah, it's 'canon' not 'cannon' by the way. Two completely different meanings.

    I agree they're ludicrously over-priced. It's a shame because I actually quite like them. But I think I'll have to pass, particularly because I want to buy a few Battle Rams, plus we have an...
