I chose option to buy either figure. If it's random like the con exclusives, some fans might be so upset as to not buy into the line at all, or only get their figures from Ebay which = less profit for Mattel. If they do the buy A version or buy B version...a lot of people will buy both...and the MOC/loose colectors will buy 2 of each (4 a month). Allowing us to choose would be more profitable, I think. Not to mention pleasing the fans who are pretty jaded because of the 200X fiasco.
