    Likely because, most of the complaints customers have had with Mattel over the past several years have NEVER been addressed. I find it interesting that so many people feel compelled to defend...

    I'm sorry, that was my poor choice of words. I don't think Wakko was intentionally being disparaging. I should have said, "unflattering" instead. I used a word that really described more the...

    I've got a subscription too, and have had one every year since it was first offered. It doesn't change the fact that this is a crappy thing for Mattel to pull, again. It's just another ugly mar on...

    Why is Mattel seemingly doing everything it can to make collecting MOTU as joyless as possible?

    This idea isn't perfect, but I think it could be cultivated into something very lucrative for Mattel and satisfying for late-comer fans to the MOTUC line. Maybe Mattel could start selling reissues...
