    I've read the thread. I also know that it costs $8.50 or so to ship a figure to the places people have cited (like Michigan,) from California. That's not counting packaging or handling. People are...

    Right? People are being crazy, saying things like, "I speculate that it would only cost $5 to ship this figure..." Well, they speculate wrong. The cost of shipping a single figure around various...

    Also, people saying that it isn't the figure price, it's the shipping need to face the reality that they are NOT being overcharged for shipping. Weigh and measure a freakin' figure and look at what...

    Lower quality figures is definitely NOT the solution.

    The MOTU packaging is fantastic, but poly bagging is a pretty great idea, if you ask me. Even if it didn't reduce the list price of a figure,...

    Right, but the not-lame way of doing that would have been to have some people shuffle the figures going into the mix before doing that, so that people wouldn't be getting many of the same figure....

    I hate to say it, but the people who complained about the "free random figure" were right. Not even shuffling them? ***! Very few people want five more Mer-Man figures, as I've seen people are...

    Man, I love this exterior, but... I'm really underwhelmed by the interior. Like, really underwhelmed. There are cool features, and they obviously got excited about adding detail, but once again,...

    Yeah, I've seen so many people complaining that Catra wasn't a POP figure. And why they don't get that Straw Man wasn't a core vintage character, I'll never know.

    Completely agreed. I cut my subs down from 2 to 1 this year, partly because I didn't have room for carded toys anymore, but also partly because I knew that even if I wanted two of some of them, it...
  11. Yeah, I actually think this year needs to have a...

    Yeah, I actually think this year needs to have a really fantastic lineup, day-of buyers need to miss out on a few hot items (sorry--I don't want anyone to miss out, really, but it's the only way to...

    That would be really unfortunate. The Horde Troopers need to have a higher production run than I think the 2013 figures are going to get, and the FFM being announced at SDCC probably drove that...

    It would be so arbitrary and bizarre to cancel the line even at 90%, though. I mean, think about it: it's not like they're actually going to take a loss. They'll just have more stock for...

    Or they could have done tiered subscriptions, like the system fans kept asking for, which they said they could never do and then did for the 30th Anniversary line. But, wait... I'm sure that's...

    Exactly. People are calling Adora, Horde Prime and Queen Marlena concept characters. They're not--those CONCEPTS were actually EXECUTED in the past, making them no longer concepts. Calling comic,...

    Right? They're making more than that now, obviously, and they're still selling. I think that the move to a subscription model is going to be very rocky, but will probably pay off next year. If...

    I bet they could save the line if they canceled Fighting Foe Men (or removed them from the sub,) kept the subs open longer and told people who had already subscribed that they could cancel if they...

    It isn't lesser-known POP characters that won't sell, it's lesser-known characters in general, especially when they're expensive and there hasn't been a lot of demand for it.

    I wish they had just...

    Exactly. It's always killed me that people *****ed about resellers, when resellers were buying SUBSCRIPTIONS, not day-of figures, and were keeping the line afloat. Resellers know that they can make...

    I so strongly disagree with the original post. Just, vehemently. This line has only a couple more years' steam in it. It's too expensive and takes up too much room, and people paid a lot of money...

    THANK YOU. I've been saying this since last year, and others have, as well. It is so beyond disingenuous to say, "We don't want to force people to buy multi-packs," while simultaneously trying to...

    It's true. I used to get two subs, to keep one in the box. It took up way, way too much room and I had to sell all of my boxed figures last year.

    The ironic thing is that if they manage to pack the second half of this year with vintage/big characters, then do the same next year, sales should be high enough that 2015 will almost certainly be a...

    After Jitsu comes out, all of the '82, '83 and '84 figures will be out and the remaining '85 figures will all be high tooling, if not "large scale beast" slots. In case no one at Mattel noticed, the...

    Great figure--way, way cooler than the other 30th anniversary figures we've seen. The name is weak, yes, but... it fits. I think people have become so used to names like He-Man and Skeletor and...

    There are still plenty of vintage figures left to be made. The problem is that half of them would require a lot of tooling and the other half is mostly forgettable. We're at the point now where, if...

    And, at this point, I don't know why any reseller is subscribing to this line. I see people on here going, "If you're buying a figure for $20 and selling it for $25, you're making money." These...

    Is that even legal? I'm pretty sure that if an item is defective or the problem is their error, they are responsible for shipping costs as well. Seriously, you should file a complaint with your...
