    With the blame squarely on those franchises, unfortunately (if that's the case), as SNL still remains a highly watched/bankable show, regardless of content quality.

    Unless Mattel is able to pay off SNL (which would be quite a scandal for the "counter-culture-rooted" SNL franchise), Mattel has nothing to do with who does what there at SNL as far as tone. SNL does...

    I'm 43 years old, and have learned a lot (and seen a lot) regarding SNL over the years. Although, I essentially haven't been a steady viewer since 1999, my decades-long observance is that SNL has...

    This is wrong though. ALL the exposure is "good exposure".

    Family Guy coulda had Peter Griffin saying "He-Man stinks. Do not buy He-Man toys." and it STILL would've been good exposure.

    It's ALWAYS what's important. Anyone can say ANYthing they think about this SNL skit, but the truth is that it's very existence marks one of the most promising MOTU franchise events to have taken...

    And, I should say that whether one likes the box, or not, it's hard to argue the logic of going with the "box" idea, as we all could conclude that a very likely reason that BOTH (Multi-Bot included)...

    Well, I think you are going off bad information. Have you been following the line's trials & tribulations regarding how accessories and paint apps really bump up the price of a figure---mix into that...

    Well, I couldn't post, even a PICTURE of it---so I made a quick "movie" version that you can see here:

    Sub up!

    As was my own preference then, and I STILL prefer new or unique characters over variants.


    Even seeing the SDCC variant reveals hasn't changed my take on that.

    I mean, they are great figures...

    If me being "passionately curious" equals me being "mad"---then yes...I'm FURIOUS.


    I won't waste my time anymore either.

    But I have to retort that I don't understand what you're saying.

    Sure---, but unless I hear from a confirmed source that this "exactly" what they're doing--- "out & out manipulation" I'll take it for granted they're telling the truth, or stretching what could be...

    Well---as SpiritOfTeela so bluntly pointed out---the game IS up.

    If Mattel is taking the attitude that they want to "close MOTUC strong", then that mindset becomes HIGHLY questionable, if not...

    "That said?"

    Wait. Hold up.

    EVERYBODY'S heard the line is ending---and that's the point people are trying to make to... um... (for lack of a better term) "your ilk". The integrating of the...

    That's why we have the Count Marzo that we have. If only one version of a character gets made, is that really a "bias" towards a particular MOTU faction or is that Mattel's attempt at a calculated...

    No-Ah, regarding "the appreciation of fine points made on this 'too many variants' issue" the feeling is apparently notably mutual.

    I say this because, as you were replying to my post, I was...

    No, we'd be having an alternate discussion about some other fabrication presumption, when the reality is that MOTUC releases are ever-changing and business-oriented by nature. Every MOTUC fan who's...

    Ummm--yes it is indeed "less lacking" when considering POP/NA/200x---sales numbers prove it. You can quantify all ya want, but that fact doesn't change---so that's why I didn't include them....and,...

    You know---I'm not really sure... w/out looking, I'd say that it was either Webstor (a favorite character of mine), or whoever rounded out the original MOTU 8 in MOTUC. That said, it was really...

    I'm assuming that the sub concept was an option proposed in the beginning, as a potential plan for staying on target w/character releases. At the planning stages of MOTUC, they'd've known that,...

    Admittedly, it'd stink not to have He-Man and Skeletor in my display, but a huge point of this thread is HAVING to eliminate figures we'd normally want to keep.
    With all respect: It's incorrect to...

    Ghostbusters and DC, ultimately are but toy ship franchises passing in the night of Mattel's workshop. If they want to keep brand recognition up, they better keep dumping money into MOTU any feasible...
