    I'd save your breath, since for some odd reason a lot of the people in this thread don't understand about returning defective merchandise. I ran into the same negativity when I used Forager packaging to return a defective, frozen-hip Riddler because the receipt expired for that UPC. It's not our fault if a careless employee not doing his/her job puts merchandise back on the shelf that you clearly tell them is defective. We shouldn't be stuck with merchandise with poor quality control.

    Its rationalizing theft.

    Just because you "give" them something back, doesn't make it OK.

    Well whatever, call it what you want, I will do what I want. Besides, you act like these are going to be flying off the shelves. If they were, the Hal/Sinestro pack would have been long gone. These will sit on the shelves for months as well because no one will want them. They are too expensive and have figures that have been out for a long time. Besides, Joker is not even comic accurate in colors, so no one will want him.

    Anyway, I hope Mattel releases a Flashpoint Batman next year in their new line as the DC Direct one absolutely sucks. He has little to no articulation. Hell, WW has more articulation than him, and she is obviously a female. DCD has NEVER put more than 7 points of articulation on a female before, and now they choose to do so and gyp Batman.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    The Hal and Sinestro has sat because Hal is the most over released character in the line with I think 8 releases* and only two of them were major repaints (shiny hal doesn't count).

    Friend purchased the Mad Love two pack, she purchased the two they had left since all the rest had moved. I think this two pack is going to perform better but awkwardly so. I think many purchases will be scalpers thinking they can make a big turn over or people doing things like you.

    Put yourself in the shoes of a purchaser of said product, imagine buying a blu-ray movie you have wanted only to find out when you open the packaging someone put in the dvd from 10 years ago.

    *Original Pack
    A repack a few waves later
    packed with Zodak
    packed with Abin Sur (shoulder's aren't painted)
    packed with Sinestro (shiny hal)
    in the Green Lantern five pack
    White Lantern
    Black Lantern
    One Gum Drop to rule them all, One Gum Drop to find them,
    One Gum Drop to bring them all and in the sweetness bind them
    In the Land of Candy where the Gingerbreads lie.

    A better use of the Joker/Harley 2-pack would be to give the parts you don't want to a kid who likes super heroes. Usually kids don't care and won't pick over the color of Joker's costume or possibly an added in Harley's blue face (and if they do then they probably don't need free toys). If however the thing seems too pricey to give away then it's really too pricey to buy at all.

    Matty newest update on the Subscriptions, I get the feeling its a go and the excuse is that so many demanded it even though they did not get to 100%

    Otherwise they are outright going to inflate the % because there is noway 35-40% of subs happen in the next 9hrs

    Then don't post about it here. Even if the item doesn't end up back on the shelf for someone else to buy (which it most likely will), you are still taking home a perfectly good, NON-defective item, swapping out the part that you want with one that you don't, and claiming it to be defective. That IS theft. Period, end of story. Do not pass go, do not collect 200 dollars. Do not post about that sort of thing here. It's just absrudly dishonest.

    What will you even claim to be the defect? The fact that her facial color is a little off?

    So an item not selling well suddenly justifies stealing it? Wow, now I've heard it all.

    The figures have been out before, yes, but what about people just getting into the line? Those waves are done and gone with, so this is a great opportunity for new collectors to get these figures.

    Besides, Joker is not even comic accurate in colors, so no one will want him.
    He's worn that suit before (go back to the previous page and look at the image I posted). The set is representing that cover...

    To me, it kind of sounds like they're going to take the case to the Mattel Gods, plead for mercy and hope the sub still goes through. I hope it does.

    As for the Mad Love two pack: I never saw Harley in store, I prefer this Harley from the pics and I only have Mattel's Batman line Joker. So, this set is total WIN for me, if I can find it.

    If Club Infinite Earths does go forward, I hope they make it gang busters and give us some of the most requested stuff because I'm doubtful they will offer a 2013 sub (or if they do, that it will move forward if 2012 wasn't the best anyone could hope for and then some).

    The update is... we are moving ahead with the sub, but everything will be painted by 2 year olds and the joints will be crap in order to cut costs. Then they will get in trouble for child labor and the line will end. BUT we'll get Wally!

    Wow, some of you guys are still hopeful for the sub? I gave up on it 2 weeks ago.

    I did give up on it when it was 26%, but I think it HAS to go through now that it's past 60%. A bunch of fans, including myself brought the sub today and I don't think that Mattel has updated the meter. Damn near 2/3rds of the target audience they need? I think Mattel will probably go through with it, but with reduced production numbers or something. That's probably why they'll get back to us later this week instead of announcing that the line is dead 12am tonight.

    It's like the credit card companies...while it's not their targeted goal, it's better to get SOME money rather than NO MONEY.

    Yeah I have always maintained they don't need 100%, I think 100% is needed for large profit but that it was always designed to sustain at a certain lower %

    I can totally see a MOTUC situation happen, low production leads to super fast sellout of the sub figures that are not sent to subscribers = more people sign up for 2013

    I'm pretty sure they said the thermomemter had to hit 100% in order for the sub to be a go, and it only hit 62%. I mean, the guy in that podcast made it clear that it has to hit the 100% mark.

    Latest update on the sub, next week they might have some info. You would think if it was canceled they would just say so and tell you they will work on refunds over the next month or so.

    Next week?! That'll be a long-ass time to wait only to hear that the logistics couldn't be worked out. If it does get canceled, I wonder if they'll offer subscribers a discount for buying the LoSH set.
