    No, because.. MARKETING! :hmlol:



    With as much as Scott posts on forums, why not just start a thread each day (or even today!) and update the %? Easy -- again, this is all marketing. Who...
  2. I hope you don't take my posts as me trying to...

    I hope you don't take my posts as me trying to sway people away from MOTUC -- I'm just saying: if you want to buy a subscription, buy one. If you want to buy 10, buy 10. If you don't, don't. It's...
  3. Sadly, this is just marketing strategy, I assume....

    Sadly, this is just marketing strategy, I assume. Think about it -- first ToyGuru says, "You better buy your subscriptions, because it's likely to sell out! Hurry hurry hurry!" There's even a...
  4. Exactly, my friend! It's just another...

    Exactly, my friend!

    It's just another marketing ploy. First we need to hurry up because Mattel is going to hit the max subscriptions, and then we're 10% away? You can't have it both ways, and...

    If you're trying to be as transparent as possible, why not come out and say how many subs are needed...

    If Battle Ram (with what looks like a duplicate Man at Arms with a repainted head) shows up at $110 like rumors are saying, we're already seeing the effects. Think about it -- one vehicle with...

    That's not how large corporations work, unfortunately. When a company is in financial freefall for months, cuts normally hit everything. I'm sure Mattel will look to do more with less, even on...

    Until the last figure rolls off the last assembly line, absolutely not true. If 2015 doesn't suffer from Mattel cutting quality, I'll high five you and say, "You were so right!" My money is on you...
  9. This is the only thing you said that I can't...

    This is the only thing you said that I can't fully agree with. Even if a section of a company has a separate budget, it's still tied to the overall financial strength of the company. That's where...
  10. How will Mattel's dismal 2Q earnings report affect MOTUC?

    It's pretty clear that Mattel as a company is hurting. With today's 2Q earnings report showing dismal losses in almost everything (worldwide net sales down 9%, Mattel Girls & Boys brands down 13%...
  11. I just wish for once -- just ONCE -- we'd get a...

    I just wish for once -- just ONCE -- we'd get a subscription period without any spin. A real love letter to fans to wrap MOTUC up. Put all the information out there -- how many subs are needed,...
  12. That's why I have no idea why they'd take this...

    That's why I have no idea why they'd take this approach -- the people that are loyal are subscribing anyway, and the people that are on the fence see this as a scare tactic and are turned off by it. ...
  13. Oh, I'm not saying MOTUC is responsible for...

    Oh, I'm not saying MOTUC is responsible for Mattel's terrible performance in the marketplace -- I'm saying the approach on MOTUC is indicative of and a case study on why Mattel is doing so poorly. ...

    Wow. Out of the six leadership styles you could choose from to lead the line during the final year, they decided to market coercively. The ONLY time this leadership style (or marketing approach) is...
  15. Well, let's remember a couple facts that you're...

    Well, let's remember a couple facts that you're leaving out. MOTUC is getting cancelled. Imaginext is part of the Fisher Price brand, which is also down 6% in sales in the first quarter. Take your...

    Think about all the cartoons that have active fanbases with kids in that demographic today -- there's no talk of a new cartoon at all that I'm aware of; did you just make that up, or do you have any...
  17. Not to anyone 3-8 years old. With no cartoon to...

    Not to anyone 3-8 years old. With no cartoon to feed toy sales, why would Mattel try to target kids with no reason to demand He-Man?
  18. Is anyone really surprised? Mattel hasn't just...

    Is anyone really surprised? Mattel hasn't just mismanaged MOTUC into the ground, but the entire company as a whole is hurting. In the first quarter alone, worldwide sales were down 5% over the...
  19. Now you're just putting words in my mouth. I...

    Now you're just putting words in my mouth. I never said cost of materials didn't affect price -- of course that's a driver. My original point is that even if Baby Skeletor isn't considered MOTUC,...
  20. Apples and oranges. You're comparing a toy line...

    Apples and oranges. You're comparing a toy line that's, by your own definition, the oldest and best selling toy line, to MOTUC -- something that doesn't even warrant a mention in Mattel's earnings. ...
  21. No -- sorry, that's not how businesses work. If...

    No -- sorry, that's not how businesses work. If a product sells well, that just means more profit and better stock price. When a product does poorly and a company suffers a loss financially, the...

    I'm pretty sure the prices of figures have gone up since 2010. :D Don't forget -- when Mattel loses money on something, they're going to find a way to make up the profit somehow. This imaginary...
  23. I'm not sure why everyone keeps thinking there's...

    I'm not sure why everyone keeps thinking there's this magic bucket of MOTUC dollars that's untouchable. If this thing tanks, it hurts Mattel's bottom line, and that affects MOTUC.

    Ok -- how in the world could you have money in the budget to do a Filmation head, knowing that so many fans wanted it, and then just decide not to do it? There's no positive way to spin a decision...

    I know what He-man would say when UNO showed up in the mail.

    "Today I want to talk to you about courage. Now courage not only means being brave in the face of danger, it also means having the...

    This is awful. Just awful. I think fewer and fewer people will subscribe unless Mattel publishes the full year line-up in advance going forward. How could anyone think this was a good idea? How...

    I agree with this post 100%. When the Ram Man fiasco initially happened, I kept seeing responses that "it was only a 1 hour issue".. when you have extremely limited stock and the people that stopped...

    I disagree. Stop asking fans to keep looking past issues that never get fixed. I want Mattel to show the fans that they're as committed as we are to making this line a success. If the subscription...

    A challenge for MattyCollector

    As I was reading the 2014/2015 newsletter Scott put together and I got to the following line, I stopped reading:

    "So as we enter 2014, let’s unite. Let’s unite as a fan base and show the whole toy...

    Wow. I think it's probably time Mattel started thinking about getting a new brand manager for MOTUC or realizing the line won't survive after this year, especially if that's the attitude toward the...
