    I think that's a legitimate gripe on the matter. I'm glad to see the other version coming out, although I'll admit I wanted the containment suit version more as it's likely the only chance to get...

    I'm buying two subs this Friday. We gotta get this last year.
  3. If the figures that have been thrown around in...

    If the figures that have been thrown around in this thread are anywhere near accurate, and we need somewhere 'twixt 600 and 700 more subs to hit 100%, then even a few subs could push it over the edge.
  4. For Those Who Swore They Would Never Sub Again: Do It Anyway...

    Come Friday morning, I'm putting in for two subs. I'm one of a number of folks on this board who have vowed never to deal with Matty and DR again. My opinion of the site and the company has not...
  5. It not only has to perpetuate itself, it has to...

    It not only has to perpetuate itself, it has to perpetuate Matty. Bandwidth, personnel, and everything else needed to maintain the Matty site costs money, and that money has to come from somewhere. ...

    Unfortunately, the points he brings up are completely valid. If we are barely able to get this sub through with the promise of finishing the line, it casts some real doubts about 2016. I think we...

    I don't think they are pulling anything here; if they were, we would have been hearing the usual strongarm tactics from years past the last few weeks before the deadline hit; it would be much easier...

    Time for a TG video to make the rounds?:hmwink:

    I guess they should have gone with the scare tactics from the last couple years; it looks like they got caught off guard by the shortfall. My bet...
  9. Not quite. There is an upper limit, a cap on the...

    Not quite. There is an upper limit, a cap on the subs this year we cannot go beyond. THAT is about 10% more than the actual sales last year. For the sub to go forward, we still need hit only the...
  10. I believe we've been a ways off every year we've...

    I believe we've been a ways off every year we've had the meter up until the last few hours, and then got somewhere around 20-30 percent at the final toll. So it's far from hopeless considering we...

    Judging by past years, it will likely be later tomorrow. They apparently check through things looking for something that might be bogus (like one guy buying 500 subs), and then, when they are...

    The cut of is 10% above last year's sales, so if we do hit that, we would be doing better than last year by definition. It would bode well for an add-on sub and maybe even give some hope of 2016 and...

    Actually, I think we've gotten about that % in about the last six hours or so the last couple years, so I'd say we are in decent shape here.

    Or simply play DC's game of infinite Earths. The minis occurred in one dimension, Filmation in another, the DC comics in a third, etc, etc. It could eventually lead to "Crisis on Infinite He-Men,"...

    THe reaction I'm seeing from folks who've seen the flick are overwhelmingly positive, and most of said reactions are from non-comics fans.

    As for the tone of the movies, they vary from film to...

    JLU.

    I voted South Park of the choices given (only one that actually has imagination rather than obvious pop culture jokes), but "adult" cartoons often have no more maturity than kids shows that...

    Keeping. I may pack away some stormtroopers and consolidate a couple displays to make some room. but I'm basically concentrating on the original trilogy from the 6" with maybe a few key characters...

    See, to me, it's worth it, as my shipping is minimized by the fact I get a lot of my stuff from Big Bad (bless you, Pile of Loot feature :hmlol: ). It also gives me a recourse if there is something...

    The reasoning was cost cutting, pure and simple. The dollars that could have been used to give us that head likely went into the other SDCC exclusives, or was cut from the MOTUC SDCC budget for...

    THat's a part of every price on every item you buy from Mattel, but there are some legitimate things to consider here:

    As far as we've been told, these are not fully rotocast figures; the chest is...
  21. I could see some licensing problems cropping up,...

    I could see some licensing problems cropping up, mostly from the DC end, but with Mattel having the DC license and DC doing a Masters book, I don't think it's beyond the realm of possibility. And if...

    This has been the pattern the last couple years; the line this year actually seems to have a bit of a smoother slope than the previous ones, but it's still made up of big bumps followed by very...

    THat extra lip line is inexplicable; the top of the beard wouldn't look like that, and there's no one that has a wrinkle right there. It would be good to see the original prototype to see if it may...

    Design's plan was to save money because they couldn't afford a paint app or stickers.:hmwink:

    Holographic stickers, as I believe the original was to come with, would have been a great addition. ...

    Just curious, how do you correct the flaws and still have a functional figure? If you fix the flap so it closes, you either have to cut a hole in the front of the armor for the raised part of the...

    It makes sense from Mattel's viewpoint on two counts: it allows them to spread things from figures with a big production price tag to somebody with a smaller one. It also allows them to conserve...

    Really is a tough question. I'd have to say it's a tie between Duncan, my favorite MOTU character, and He-Ro, who I have been wanting for many, many years. and there are so many runners up, some...

    Great review, as usual, and I learned something today: somehow, I had missed the part about the ends of the hair having a swivel joint. It's not a huge piece of articulation, but I can see it being...

    Funny, I had just read that Ninjor was the first caveman's club Mattel has chosen thus far to bludgeon us into subbing, and then I go to Big Bad and see he's sold out. Cause and effect?:hmlol:

    I actually felt Dan was being quite lenient here; the design problems he pointed out are ridiculous for product coming from the world's largest toy maker. He was frank, but restrained in his words,...
