    I actually am getting to like the look of the figure, and it's sad. I would likely have bought it in and of itself to display as Frakenhiss in one of my displays even if I had gotten the two torso...
  2. I feared TG wouldn't be able to comment on the...

    I feared TG wouldn't be able to comment on the matter for legal reasons related to leaving Mattel (non-disclosure agreements and such), but now we have the other side of the story. Given the lack of...

    The idea of a lawsuit likely isn't going to fly; you first need to find a judge who isn't going to give you "the look" for suing over part of a toy.:hmwink:

    There are, however, other routes. Since...
  4. Disguise Power Sword and Sword of Protection

    Just searched posts here and didn't find this (apologies, mods and folks if this be old news), but just saw these pop up on Big Bad. 36" long, plastic, look really good.

    Plastic Sword of Power...
  5. After reading the new post from Matty about the...

    After reading the new post from Matty about the figure, I'm getting a definite "this is your Hiss" vibe. This is their solution, period. I would like to see some consideration of the very reasonable...
  6. I seriously doubt it would be anywhere around...

    I seriously doubt it would be anywhere around $100. I'm pretty well bracing for something in the $150 range at least. It is a big piece, after all.
  7. THere's still packaging and procuring the actual...

    THere's still packaging and procuring the actual materials to make the figure. Add in that Mattel then has to schedule a production run at the overseas factory to actually make the figure. The...
  8. And that is a legitimate point I brought out...

    And that is a legitimate point I brought out myself in one of the other threads: BS Hordikins is part of their promise to finish the vintage line, so releasing him as part of the sub does make sense...
  9. My only reason for wanting a separately packed...

    My only reason for wanting a separately packed Teela is because I would likely get more than one. Not an option with her included with the set.
  10. Polybagged would likely make them cheaper, but I...

    Polybagged would likely make them cheaper, but I could see that giving MOC/MIB collectors some pause. For such collectors, uniformity of packaging can make a difference.
  11. In fairness, though, I also take the brand...

    In fairness, though, I also take the brand manager telling me it will definitely be included with another sub figure, and doing so more than once, seriously, as well.:hmwink:
  12. There's a lot more than simply buying or not...

    There's a lot more than simply buying or not buying a figure here. There's a real issue that affects EVERY aspect of this subbing business: trust. We are pre-buying a bunch of figures, some of which...
  13. Okay, so FrankenHiss doesn't look bad. Kind of...

    Okay, so FrankenHiss doesn't look bad. Kind of what I expected, nothing but re-purposed existing parts, but the final product isn't bad for the restrictions in place. It's NOT the right solution in...
  14. "Hones"t and "transparent" are the problems here....

    "Hones"t and "transparent" are the problems here. An honest person or business keeps their word. Mattel unarguably did not; whether or not TG is still around doesn't matter. He was Mattel's official...
  15. True enough, and I've even commented on the...

    True enough, and I've even commented on the better atmosphere and the reduction of major issues with the figures themselves. But we have now have two cases where Mattel has reneged on things we paid...
  16. Or more likely, they didn't address it at SDCC...

    Or more likely, they didn't address it at SDCC because this is their idea of a solution and they knew the uproar could overshadow all their big reveals.

    Now, taking down the statement might mean...
  17. Yep, that pretty much cements it. It was...

    Yep, that pretty much cements it. It was guaranteed in writing, and it didn't happen. Two cases of them ignoring their promises to their customers in a couple of days. That's a record even TG...
  18. As pointed out in the other thread, removing Dare...

    As pointed out in the other thread, removing Dare from the sub and making him the bonus figure would actually allow Matty to uphold another broken pledge, that Dare would not take a slot in the 2015...
  19. I, too, want Dare, but this solution would solve...

    I, too, want Dare, but this solution would solve three problems, all things we were told that were not honored:

    1. Dare would not be in the 2015 sub, as promised.
    2. BS Hordak would still be in...
  20. There's no time for anything new to be made; it...

    There's no time for anything new to be made; it comes in November. The only option is getting something made up of things where the molds already exist; the only new part can be the torso itself.
    ...
  21. This would actually be the best solution; it...

    This would actually be the best solution; it wouldn't be the first time a company ate a bit of profit loss for the sake of keeping customers. The Horsemen did it with an entire wave of their Seventh...

    Sounds like it will always be a special kind of blockbuster to you. Thanks for sharing that story.:hmgrin:

    Funny thing about the EA: I forgot about that possibility. I put today on my calendar to take lunch an hour early, and realized when I came in this morning that I probably missed the early access (I...

    By the ancients, I hope they don't go with blind packaging. It rarely does well in American markets, and I would wind up simply going to eBay to overpay for a set.

    I rather doubt we'll see...

    The bluetooth feature is worthless to me, so I wouldn't care if that was dropped. But I can't see how the playset would viable at it's current size, not just for the sake of how much room folks do or...

    I've gotten Lego stuff, most recently the DC stuff, but Mega will always have a HUGE advantage in the quality of the figures. Mega bloks gives you small action figures, as I was reminded with the...

    But this would give them that; you'd have all three if you wanted, and a bunch more. The thing that appeals to me so much about this idea is the fun aspect. Just like the royal guards, the snake...

    I can see it's a bit off on some things from that angle, but I'd really need to look at the figures in a full turnaround to see if that is true head on or from a different perspective. Looking at the...

    This is a big difference a lot of folks seem to be missing. When Mattel comes to SDCC, Mattel is selling the exclusives themselves; as far as I know, SDCC is not putting up their own money for those...

    I'm pretty sure Batgirl is it for the line; SDCC would have been the place to show anything new. At least I'm still getting Tut-Tut from figures Toy Company...
