  1. I am absolutely not saying that, MC. I respect...

    I am absolutely not saying that, MC. I respect healthy debate, calling wrongdoers to the carpet, and even a light lambasting when it's helpful in encouraging change. However, the problem is that...
  2. Very good point, Scott. Now if only this would...

    Very good point, Scott. Now if only this would help cease the constant cyber-harassment of those perceived to be in the wrong. And the greater issue in even harassing at all- in the end what...
  3. Due respect to those who were offended by my...

    Due respect to those who were offended by my incorrect comment that, "I guarantee you'll find black plastic underneath older figures (or something to that effect)", as you're right I never stripped...
  4. For those who weren't in attendance at PowerCon...

    For those who weren't in attendance at PowerCon to hear Scott's explanation, aren't reading similar comments in other threads, or are just plain ignorant regarding the topic in general; this concern...
  5. Not sure if the black plastic haters really care...

    Not sure if the black plastic haters really care at this point, since so many have convinced themselves the black plastic is to blame regardless, but Scott confirmed at PowerCon that the paint...
  6. My question is a simple one Fug-Lee. Since...

    My question is a simple one Fug-Lee. Since you've recently admitted that you've walked away from this line and collecting MOTUC altogether... why are you still railing on endlessly about what does...
  7. LOL... great pic!! BTW folks... there's a very...

    LOL... great pic!!

    BTW folks... there's a very important reality check that I think many of us are forgetting in our desperation to throw Mattel/TG/Ruben under any available moving vehicle. And...
  8. Yes, it's a fact that changes can't happen before...

    Yes, it's a fact that changes can't happen before 6 mnths out.... until it's not a fact. :hmlol:

    Seriously though... too easy to paint each production run, situation, occurance with the same...
  9. Sorry Jun, but this isn't the thread to...

    Sorry Jun, but this isn't the thread to underscore ailments- other than the aforementioned use of black plastic. There are plenty of great already existing threads on these various topics right here...
  10. To be fair, the sub sell-in pleas had very little...

    To be fair, the sub sell-in pleas had very little to do with expecting lapsed sub holders to ignore the realities of what's wrong with the line. At least for my part when I made an impassioned plea...
  11. I see a heap of difference in trying to redirect...

    I see a heap of difference in trying to redirect the conversation back on topic and outright complaining. And if complaining is all you see in my comments PPC, perhaps you should look at the subtext...
  12. Yes, but at the risk of possibly offending anyone...

    Yes, but at the risk of possibly offending anyone (hopefully not, but these things happen), snarky is as snarky does. Scott has a certain way with words that many don't agree with, especially when...
  13. I really don't mean to offend anyone nor am I...

    I really don't mean to offend anyone nor am I trying to squash an open, honest discussion, but why the egregious and vitriolic hate here guys? PPC's comments quoted above are only one in a long...
  14. Realistically... given how far ahead these...

    Realistically... given how far ahead these figures are often manufactured... we may not see an end to the use of black plastic (if in fact we do at all) until Jan/Feb 2013. And no I don't purport to...
  15. Gotta say... although I take no issue with people...

    Gotta say... although I take no issue with people having opinions about the black plastic issue as it's a legit concern and widely impacting, I am very ashamed to be considered amongst fans who would...
  16. Less likely as most likely the overage of black...

    Less likely as most likely the overage of black plastic parts were manufactured due to the rampant parts sharing possibilities with the main line He-man buck. Granymyr being all new parts (for the...
  17. And where in the contract you agree to during...

    And where in the contract you agree to during each years MOTUC sign-up period does it state that they won't use black plastic in the manufacturing of their figures? If it's in there somewhere then a...
  18. I guess consider me part of the 1% who...

    I guess consider me part of the 1% who (thankfully) hasn't been effected and isn't chiming in to say anything negative. I don't see the painted black plastic as an issue and neither of the figures...
  19. What part of 'this is a very, very small line in...

    What part of 'this is a very, very small line in the eyes of Mattel' do fans not get? I understand marketing should largely be the responsibility of the company putting out the line, but they're not...
  20. When warranted I certainly will. Matty puts out...

    When warranted I certainly will. Matty puts out a great product, period. What Scott says is of less importance than the end result. Yes he puts his foot in his mouth more often than not, but this...
  21. Remind me guys... why is the plastic underneath...

    Remind me guys... why is the plastic underneath being cast in the color of the skintone an important thing? If the paint wears off it wears off, so what's the difference if you see black or any...
