    That "MARKETING GENIUS" post was my favorite one!

    It's clearly being sarcastic, but Scott just says "thanks for the kind words".
    Love it.

    Okay, that last paragraph of Catra's Wrath's answer (bolding mine):

    "As more and more key characters get released in a toyline, the natural decrease in interest will effect sales. Hopefully Toy...

    Setting aside any concerns about specific answers, why is Mattel letting non-employees directly answer fan questions on their website?

    Yeah, but GI Joe at the time was marketed to, and purchased by (or at least for), kids. And if the kids didn't know who those characters were, they'd get it beaten into their heads via the cartoon or...

    Some customizer should get a picture of this guy and a spare Mo-larr and do up a custom figure for him.
    He could come with a platinum card and a computer logged into Mattycollector.

    Whoa... that's what you think of when you think of Palisades?
    At the risk getting into some kind of un-winnable 'my toyline is better than your toyline' fight, when I think Palisades I think...

    I didn't listen to the podcast, as I'm not really into that sort of thing, so pardon me if this was brought up...
    Two-packs as a back up plan sounds good, but if they really want to cover all the...

    Yeah. That stuff really stands out. Especially with how sketchy and undetailed it is.

    It looks like there was only one suit of scale mail in all of Eternia, and they had to cut it up just to give...

    Maybe I'm misunderstand something here.

    You guys were talking about the 200x line. Your friend said it failed because the people in charge were stuck in their ways. Meaning they were running the...

    I think that story does more to undercut your thesis than to support it.
    The point your friend was making was that yeah, what these guys were doing in the 80s was great. But it's not the 80s...

    I just recently found out about this book a few weeks ago. Didn't have the funds to donate at the time, what with Xmas around the corner, but now I check back and see the book is out of print....

    Quickest order ever for me.
    Got the red screen for a few seconds when I logged in, but it was smooth sailing after that.

    Got one He-Ro (and one Wonder Twins) in about 10 min, with occasional red screens at login and between each step.
    Not too bad, after all is said and done, but MAN is it stressful during!

    I have a Grayskull, but I'd be tempted to get another one to open.
    I'm generally an loose collecter, but I never got around to opening KG, or any of my MOTCU figures, for that matter, because I was...

    I can totally sympathize with this point of view. I'm not immune to it myself.

    But whenever anyone (and I'm speaking in generalities here, not singling you out, Spacedust) wants to deny another...

    from another site:



    Pretty good observation.
    Mattel can (try to) placate the fans and feed the hype machine at the same time.
  19. Yeah, I wonder why that might be... AH!...

    Yeah, I wonder why that might be...



    AH!
    That sounds about right.

    Anyway, this whole setup is a hot mess.
    But it helps me make a decision. No subscription for me.

    Really?

    They charge $20 per regular figure, and the "sign up" fee for the subscription service in which you get a "free" figure just happens to be $20.

    I'm sure it's just a crazy coincidence...

    I heard mostly the same, but apparently, the feckless fan was still bitter over never having his childhood dream fulfilled by Mattel.
    That's right, the picture was taken by none other than Nathan...

    Seconded.

    I am SOOOO glad I was checking this thread. I was using Safari, too, as I have for all the other orders I've made. Never had any issues until now.

    I totally forgot about that.
    It was a nice touch.
    Of course, now having a character called King Grayskull, that would be redundant, so I doubt Mattel will use Gray.

    What's that? "Evil leader of...

    Actually, that's not half bad.
    It's kind of over-obvious and goofy, like any other classic MOTU name, but it's also sort of poetic.
    Like something out of Beowulf.

    Thanks!
    Duh... it was right in front of my face, too.
    I was looking somewhere else, though. I didn't expect it to be right there :hmblsh:

    I'm not arguing whether or not it is a bias, I'm saying that being a bias is irrelevant. I also disagree with the notion that there is only one "valid" reason to oppose Mattel selling AFA graded...
