  1. ...and if anyone ever feels like I get out of...

    ...and if anyone ever feels like I get out of line with someone, they are welcome to point it out. I legit apologize if I offended anyone- I want us all to have an enjoyable experience, both on the...

    As I said, No-Ah never said that Scott WAS like that. I think a big part of it is the whole 'transparency' thing. If that wasn't their mantra, they wouldn't look like such gigantic hypocrites.
    If...

    I mean, if you go to the con, you're only paying $5.00 or $6.00 more than Digital River charges us for the non-limited figures with shipping...
  4. I think that you are connecting too many dots in...

    I think that you are connecting too many dots in your own head and assuming that No-Ah thinks things that he hasn't actually said. He himself said that Scott had a lot of issues that upset him. He...

    ...and I'm sorry if my tone offended you- it was not meant to. I was pretty riled up about the whole situation, which was no one's fault but Matty.

  6. Agreed. I think he's going to have more of an...

    Agreed. I think he's going to have more of an appeal because, unlike the other 2, he is a direct update of a vintage figure- plus, it's a figure whose rarity has made it unaffordable to most...
  7. ...and then I realized what the whole protected...

    ...and then I realized what the whole protected thread option was, and calmed down a bit. I was also riled up about the situation, like, really upset with MattyCollector. In retrospect, now that I...

    I feel like New York was a bad choice- NYC is very expensive to stay in, and I'm assuming convention venues are pricey. It also doesn't solve the problem of having it on one side of the country,...

     MOTU   As some people have alluded to, I think the...

    As some people have alluded to, I think the people who made MOTU in 1987 did a much better job than many of the modern toy-based-movie makers. I think one of the big issues, and I'm thinking in...
  10. Thank you for being completely circuitous in a...

    Thank you for being completely circuitous in a mean-spirited way, and acting condescending because I didn't know all of the ins and outs of how these forums work. I have addressed it multiple times....
  11. As I stated, that was my initial intent. So, in...

    As I stated, that was my initial intent. So, in this particular case, me.
  12. Obviously, some of us don't think it's 'clear'...

    Obviously, some of us don't think it's 'clear' that this isn't illegal. I am also using the term victim-shaming correctly. Something doesn't have to be heinously evil for someone to be a victim of...
  13. I actually feel like all of this thread, with the...

    I actually feel like all of this thread, with the exception of my interactions with you, which have taken up far too much of it, has been pretty productive. I'm just going to say this one more time,...
  14.  MOTU   Wait... Does Skeletor have pupils?

    Wait...



    Does Skeletor have pupils?
  15. That is actually the opposite of the information...

    That is actually the opposite of the information I was looking for- there is a separate thread to post in when you do subscribe. I also stated that I had no idea what a protected thread was, or even...
  16. I think that is accurate- honestly, in the past,...

    I think that is accurate- honestly, in the past, I haven't needed to know all of the figures that were in a particular year, because I am a completionist. I figure the people buying the subscriptions...
  17. I am being 100% non-sarcastic here- thank you for...

    I am being 100% non-sarcastic here- thank you for that post! That is how you disagree with things that some have said, but in a grown-up way that contributes to actual discussion.

    I agree- I don't...
  18. Those were never explicitly promised- those were...

    Those were never explicitly promised- those were things that I believe they said they'd 'try' to get included. That makes 100% of the difference.
  19. That may not be a non-factor, but it legitimately...

    That may not be a non-factor, but it legitimately costs more per-unit when there is a lower production run. There are certain costs (packaging art, design, set-up costs at the printer for packaging)...
  20. No name calling was done- I do not think that, as...

    No name calling was done- I do not think that, as a human being, you are inherently pompous and inherently a bully- I feel like you are acting that way in this situation, as you feel that I am acting...
  21. Honestly, I'm pleasantly surprised by this- the...

    Honestly, I'm pleasantly surprised by this- the mark-up Vs. regular-release products is much higher for the G.I. Joe and Transformers Convention exclusives. I thought we'd be looking at ploy-bagged...
  22. I'm sorry if you have mistaken straightforward...

    I'm sorry if you have mistaken straightforward and to-the-point as passive aggressive. Don't mistake my passion and seriousness for being passive-aggressive. I'll be more straightforward- I think...
  23. We'll see- if the production numbers are...

    We'll see- if the production numbers are sufficient, I think this is a very acceptable situation- the main thing is to make sure that each collector can at least get one set of exclusives for...
  24. No, as I've said multiple times, it's the...

    No, as I've said multiple times, it's the victim-shaming and condescension- people are welcome to have different opinions- it's just the way they express them that marks the difference between a...
  25. If they don't fix this situation, I'm debating if...

    If they don't fix this situation, I'm debating if I might at least allow myself to get Snake Mountain. I reeeeeeeeeally want it, but I'd just feel kind of dirty and used.
  26. You're right- the fact that I want Mattel to wake...

    You're right- the fact that I want Mattel to wake up and realize that not keeping their word and living up to their legal obligation will hurt one of my favorite toy lines of all time, one that I...
  27. Yeah- I feel like he at least let us know things...

    Yeah- I feel like he at least let us know things were possible but not definite. This complete silence from Matty, for days, is really troubling. There are dozens and dozens of posts in the "Ask...
  28. Um... but it IS illegal. No 'over-dramatizing.'...

    Um... but it IS illegal. No 'over-dramatizing.' No hyperbole. I appreciate the empathy you have for your fellow collectors.
  29. This isn't an either/or binary situation- one...

    This isn't an either/or binary situation- one team good, the other bad. Personally, I think Scott made some mistakes in his tenure with Mattel, the handling of the Fisto situation being the most...

    I thought this was a community. That opinion is quickly dying for me. So it goes.
