    You're absolutely right. While I think Mattel is totally in the wrong here, I'm not going to go to the extremes of a lawsuit or kid myself that cancelling my sub will in any way send Mattel a signal....

    I plead poetic license. Or pun intended. Nevermind. At least I didn't say Fisto me.

    He wasn't inferring, he was implying. You were inferring.

    There, I feel better. And I apologize that I am such a pathetic grammar nerd. Flogg me. :hmgrin:

    Don't caricature it for everyone who's quitting. I was on the fence about subbing because a) I'm not real excited about most of the CC figure choices, b) I'm sick of over-paying for shipping and...

    You're right. But I can say, at this point in the year as a quarterly subber, the King Hiss torso was my #1 most-wanted item remaining in the 2015 sub. The rest of 2015 is filled with one figure I...
  7. I never told you how to feel about this. But...

    I never told you how to feel about this. But ironically, you're fine with telling everyone else how spineless they are if they're upset about it.

    My sentiments exactly.



    That's one way to look at it, yes, if you consider the 2016 offerings awesome (debatable on a figure-by-figure basis). But another way to look at it is that by not...

    At this point, if honoring the promise isn't possible on their part, then they should offer the option for collectors to cancel the remainder of their 2015 sub.

    It's not a matter of liking the figures or not liking the figures. It's a matter of wanting to continue to deal with Mattel or not.

    I was already on the fence about subbing for next year due to...

    I was on the fence about the CC sub (and had already decided against the FILMation sub). This debacle helped me decide: I'm not subbing next year. It already sucked that poor character distribution...

    It's still up on Facebook too, which is surprising. Their FB page has to get a heck of a lot more traffic than Mattycollector.com does.

    So, during the open subscription window, we have the Powercon Controversy, the Early Access Oversight, and now the King Hiss Torso Snafu. Great timing, Mattel!

    On a related note... how does one go...

    Ah, I see your point now. You're right. I hadn't studied the Sunder pics enough to realize he's not a match for a Trooper (sans head, of course).

    Well, hopefully this means Mattel plans a...

    What difference does it make? Either way, were going to get another shot at Troopers, and now that Sunder has been announced, chances are HE'S the one coming with alternate head(s).

    Despara is basically going to be bride-of-Hordak in my canon. Haven't figured out her origin yet.

    5. Wakko: Has Mattel considered doing a second run of the under-produced Horde Trooper 2-pack? Other options could be releasing the Horde Trooper as a single-carded figure that includes alternate...

    In an earlier Q&A, Mattel strongly implied that Sunder would come with parts to turn him into a Trooper.

    I am very, very torn.

    I've cherry-picked since day 1 and subbed for two years now (including 200x this year). But right now, I'm feeling incredibly underwhelmed by the rest of the 2015 line-up (I...

    Your logic is totally sound, but Mattel sure hasn't applied that logic to Trollans.

    It will be interesting to see, now that Mattel has to make a "child" buck for the Thunderkittens, if that will open the door for any child characters (e.g., Starchild) in MOTUC. Even the smaller arms...

    IMO, the best strategy would be for ThunderCats Classics to last 4 years.

    There are basically six categories that the characters fall into:
    1. ThunderCats (11.5 characters - TC)
    2. Independent...
