I'm though when Mattel is through!
Simple......... TILL THE VERY END !!!
However, I am not going to buy all ! Will be very picky !!

I'm though when Mattel is through!
Holding out for Castaspella, Angella, Double Trouble and Entrapta!!!
It's my intent to stick it out to the end, barring any financial crisis (which could occur any moment). I'm interested in new characters as much as old, as long as they're done 'right' (Draego Man is a fine exmple of the sort of figure I'd miss out on if I limited myself to 'classic' characters)
I survived the 2013 sub ordeal!
"We achieved the impossible, and that makes us MIGHTY" (Mal Reynolds, captain of Serenity)
This opens up a new question. Several people have said they will be picking figures until the end, which suggests to me that cherry-picking could be becoming the new black. So is the relevant question "sub or not?"
I like the Vintage stuff and some concept characters like Demo-Man and Vikor, and I also want some minicomic characters. But my stance on POP and NA hasn't changed at all since I started collecting. I still don't like them.
With the sub hassles this year and the inevitable reduction in Vintage characters, I am more likely to abandon the sub (I've subbed for three years) and return to buying figures I want on sale days. I haven't made a final decision on this yet, but I'm going to have to be wowed by a lot of good reveals.
So at this stage I anticipate staying with the line until its demise, but I very much doubt I'll buy everything.
i'm glad someone made this thread. been thinking about this for awhile. here's my drop dead list:
Mekaneck - coming soon!!!
Mosquitor - coming soon???
General Rattlor (hopefully more based on 200x)
once i have those, i'll back way off and cherry pick a lot more. i'd also love to have these:
Ice Armor He-Man (from 200x)
The giants from 200x (Azdar, Belzar, Chadzar)
Possibly the Two Bad twins split
And the cherries on top? battle Ram The castle and pipe dream at best but Slime Pit. I have no care for POP or NA. More Hey look new outfit he man and skele..meh..Well ok one..Love the idea of a new Dragon Blaster Skeletor, And I wouldn't mind some comic or other revisions of some. Flesh tone Man e, Green Trap jaw, Might even be jazzed about a filmation looking clawful.
At this point the set in stone price hike, pointless 30th ann figures so far and so on has just watered it down and kinda ruined things for me.
So yeah..not a ton of figures left for me. And unless the sub exclusive is gold and diamonds I will be picking the cherries this year. Little extra price but better than getting packages each month that don't interest me.
I hope the line lasts forever and everyone gets who they want. But I am not picking up stuff that I just don't care about. I have 2 subs for the rest of this year and am happy to say i have homes for anything I don't want from them. Dealing with some great guys there.
Good luck Matty..I hope you know what your doing with the prices and so on.
Find what you seek only when you look in the right places...
I'm done with the sub after this year. I will still cherry-pick figures here and there in 2013, but I don't want another 2 or 3 pack of figures I don't want.
My absolute must haves are to complete the Evil Horde, Skeletor's Evil Warriors, and the Snake Men.
My most wanted that are not in those immediate categories would be:
Batros, Extendar, and Ram-Man
Once I get all those, I would probably cherry pick the rest if the subs got too expensive and QC issues remained.
I do want all the dinos, dioramas, and playsets I can get, but I am not holding out too much hope that we are going to get everything we want.
Bring on Batros!
When they make Modulok.
I'll be here until Mattel stops making them or the prices (or shipping costs) become to much to handle.
MOTUC wants: Modulok, Entrapta, Scorpia, Madame Razz, Sea Hawk, Spinnerella, Double Trouble, Glimmer, Angella, Sweet Bee, Mermista, Flutterina, Perfuma, Peekablue, Kowl, Loo-Kee, Huntara, Two-Bad, Extendar, Tung Lashor, Sssqueeze, Kayo, Darius, Drissi, Hydron, Sebrian, Flogg, Crita, Hoove, Staghorn, Crystoll, Quakke, Chef Allen
Great .org transactions: sdilks, Man-E-Toys, bigassbuzz, Climan
after the next price increase. $20 a figure is premium. $22 for a figure is too high. plus shipping? nah. done after the next hike.
"everyone always talks about how big and scary snakemen are... well calligars eat people too!"
I'll keep buying what they make regardless of price especially if they venture into brand new figure territory again. Heck, I never had the NA figures growing up so they already feel like new figures to me and are turning out to be my favorites so far - along with Bow, Vikor, and Demo-man. Go figure. I love the vintage stuff, but there's something about all new figures that taps into that kid inside me. Love it all. Long live MOTUC.
unfortunately matty's CS has already done it for me. I read and saw that UPS shipping is back though, maybe if shipping gets back to reasonable times, and CS improves drastically i can think about getting into MOTUC yet again
When will MOTUC be done for you?
At the end of the year as I have no intention to renew.
Being an international subscriber has been a nightmare.
I want it all....so I will be buying MOTUC for as long as they make them.
Never. Just want them to keep on making awesome figures.
Until the end of it, and I hope it comes in 2050.
When we get all of New Adventures of He-Man figures, including Adam.
I still need MOTUC: King Grayskull, King Randor, Wun-Dar, Gygor, Grizzlor, and Preternia He-Man

I'd like to say that I'd be done once the 'vintage' MOTU have been offered, but who the hell am I kidding; Mattel will milk my teats for roughly 30 Filmation characters when all is said and done. Do you think that after being 'weaned' on characters like Lizardman, Shokoti, and The Tingler that I'm NOT going to be buying them??
As for my wife, well, thats a different story. She wants it all. She will be the one, in 2021, thats buying multiples of 'Samurai Battle Grip Twistoid'.
Long live MOTUC!

This is what its all about, folks.
It will be done for me when Mattel are done with it.
I guess I'm in until the end, but that sounds kinda weird since I've recently gone from a completist to a veeeeeery picky cherry-picker.

Unfortunately I think my finances tell me I'm done the end of this year. It's just costing too much, too many things you have to buy with a sub.
The dramatic price increase they have been talking about will surely hit a dent in people buying subs, so I hope greedy mattel goes under for the greed, this is an adult collector line, most of us don't have unlimited money for all the figures their coming out with. So I say either go back to one figure a month with a couple bonus ones or end the line.
3 more figures (Ram Man, Two-Bad & Jitsu) & I'm done.
