    Great news ! Mekaneck was long overdue ! Now let's pray that he'll be good quality and that he won't suffer from QC issues... I'll probably buy him. Now there are only a few heroic warriors left to release, with Ram Man being the most requested.

    Huh! How about that- I forgot how much I loved Mekaneck until I got this email I can't believe how good he looks- PLEASE MATTEL, DON'T CHANGE A SINGLE THING! The colors are great!!! The club looks amazeballs (hope it's all a nice solid plastic with no wilty Man-At-Arms-style mace handle issues!). I am definitely buying 2 so I can extend that mofo neck to the high heavens!

    PS- In a year that is filled with cut accessories and missing paint applications, I am soooo happy to have Mekaneck come out in his rather simple amazingness- just the one club, the armor, and neck pieces + his striking but otherwise pretty simple color scheme = a figure that will hopefully arrive on our doorsteps just the way he appears in the email. No extra pieces to get the axe due to budgeting issues, no crazy amount of paint decos that will need to be left off of the final figure... I kinda hope (until they get to 2013 and have the $$$ to no longer have to cut accessories or paint apps) that the rest of 2012 are these rather "easy-peasy" figures to knock out. Look how happy Mekaneck has made everybody here!

    I was thinking about that. If both neck pieces have to be able to connect to the post the head sits on and the head has to sit on top of the neck piece, then they would have to be stackable. Dont you think? That will be awesome to see a 15" Mek-neck. LOL

    I have a subscription and have not gotten the email. Luckily I saw it first on facebook. I am really excited for this one! Now I am waiting to find out Ram Man will be the subscription bonus figure for 2013. Hopefully Mantenna will be a 2013 figure too!

    Wow after a lousy week of having a friend die, getting my laptop and cameras stolen, sprayed with a paint mixer machine at work, and not getting several good roles I was up for, this cheers me up a little bit.

    Wonder if the neck pieces can combine.

    So he was the Sept fig that got bumped?

    PS- How awesome is it that we're still getting Mosquitor this year too?! I really thought he was going to be revealed as the next monthly figure after Frosta- what if we get both Mekky AND 'squitor in October?!?!

    I dont think they will. He did say the Slush Head tentacles werent bendy because of Snout Spouts failure, but I think Slushy was already too far along before the SS debacle, so maybe BS PR spew.

    Meh.

    I mean, he's nice, because let's face it, the 4H are magicians sent to us from beyond time and space to give us beautiful miniature representations of these characters, but as a character... Mekaneck?

    Meh.

    Vastly prefer Extendar. "Anything you can do, I can do better..."

    Two thoughts:

    1) I wonder if there will be an additional sticker sheet with translucent colored stickers in the shape of the goggles so we can "customize" his vision the way we'd like.

    2) Can Megator hold that long neck piece? I want him to bash some skulls using it as a club with Mekaneck's nonchalant expression.

    I just re-read...."Image shown here is a prototype, so the deco and assembly of the final figure will likely vary a bit"....reversed forearms, or maybe reversed thighs!!!!

    I hope they leave him alone this time, since he is one of my favorites, and I never had Stinkor before, but this time I will be more ticked.

If Mattel's crack research team was worth its weight in Kowl droppings, they'd realize that a large segment of their target buying audience has been holding out for two figures (primarily): Mekaneck and Ram-Man. Rush those two out, and the viability of the line becomes questionable. Why do something that's practically guaranteed to signal the death knell of the line when you can continue to eek money out of it? It's bad business sense. Honestly, they should be doing everything to maximize the lifeline of the franchise, instead of rushing out the vintage MOTU figures knowing full-well that they'll lose a huge chunk of their target buyers once that's done.
    Yes while I am excited for and happy to see Mekaneck - I echo your statements in production timing. I'm not saying I want him held "hostage" or something is killing the line, but it would make sense to reveal at SDCC that Mekaneck, Ram-Man, and Jitsu would be 2013 offerings to help bolster the subscriptions going forward and at least draw the line out for another year. Its great we are getting these figs, but if the profit margins are so thin, a lot of the remaining figures are going to require quite a bit of unique tooling. Mekaneck and Jitsu would be two "cheap" figures to balance out a potential 2013 budget. Its like leaving easy money on the table - unless they are hedging their bets projecting that 2013 sub levels will be even less w/ projected price increases so they want to get the A-listers out sooner rather than later.

    Not derail this thread. I think it speak to the "surprise" of seeing Mekaneck right now.

    Happy for the happy people.

    Wish it was POP Yes, that's right...TWO POP figures in one month. That would have been supremely cool!

    It's also possible Rattlor will be out this year too. Toyguru said more snakemen are coming this year!

    That would be a rather solid way to round out the rest of a solid year!

And unlike some (that's not directed at you) who are vocal about the fact that they would rather see other collectors' favorites never see the light of day (e.g., those who say there's no room for POP and NA characters), those of us who are suggesting that the timing of Mek's release is foolish aren't saying that he shouldn't be made. Rather, we're saying that Matty's has shot themselves in the proverbial foot by pushing out too many of the vintage MOTU figures (as a whole) too quickly, and it's foolish to push out one of the last 'A-listers' when there are so many other A-listers from other factions still waiting in the wings!
    Vintage characters are important, but again they can't last forever. Matty also has to keep people's interests by actually releasing them.
    I'm in a group that's all about needing Mek and Ram Man. But it doesn't mean that's all I would buy, they're just the last I would need to feel I had a complete collection. If there were somehow a very large group of people that were only still in it for those two, it's unlikely they would be subscribers anyway so I'm not sure the impact it would have. If people have been subscribing but now feel they have enough vintage characters after this year's lineup, then the line would be doomed as of 2013 anyway. Which I doubt--too many heavy hitters left from all the eras, including filmation stuff, to last at least two or three more years. Plus, I think all the screwups during the past half year will do more to determine the fate of the subs than Mekaneck will.

    I think I'd bust out a disco dance if Rattlor was confirmed.
