The real question is why isn't Mattel sending me an advance copy to review!?!

now we've had He-Ro and Triklops sent out in white mailer boxes how has the quality of the cards increased for you?
Being in the UK i'm still awaiting my He-Ros and even a shipping confirmation for triklops, but I'm curious to just how much good the mailer boxes are doing for the MOC collectors out there
Fneh's MOTUC wishlist:
Spikor, MYP Marzo, Snake Armour He-Man, Stinkor
Fneh's MOTUC needed list:
King Grayskull, Beastman, Stratos head
The white box work for me.
I guess i am one of the few (or the only one) that there was nothing wrong with my cards. But for me the card is not that important since i dont collect MOC
I like the white box idea. My only suggestion is for Matty to put a sticker or print on the box which character is inside. I think it would help for those that go unopened and it serves as easy storage to put them back in the white box if you don't plan to display them immediately.
All the He-Ro's I got from the con were still damaged inside their white boxes. I'm sure it will help to prevent a lot of the damage that I had seen from packing the figures, but there is still damage done in packing them into the white mailers it seems. Sircory...I was just gonna some little white labels and mark them myself.
I am just a little worried that "Masters of the Universe" is plastered all over the box. I can see a few more of these going "missing" in transit now, would prefer it if they were not advertising what is inside the package!
It works much better in my opinion. The top corners still seem to be warped a little, but nowhere near the damage I've seen on previous figures.

I think it was detrimental to my He-Ro.
I don't know what happened but my white box was completely crushed in the top left corner = card bent and creased. So I called Mattel and they told me I had to pay to return it.
That's terrible costumer service if you ask me. We shouldn't have to pay for that. And I said to the CSR, "You paid for the last return when I received a damaged product."
So, she says, "That was free the first time - now you have to pay as this is your second return."
That is complete B.S. I just decided to live with it. So, I'm supposed to invest another $8 dollars on this one figure. Making that $36 for an already expensive toy.
Yeah...gotta love it when Matty knows they got you by the balls. It would be another story if they produced terrible figures. Unfortunately, they produce two of my favorite lines in MOTUC and DCUC. It's a very abusive relationship.
I have received 8 He-Ro's in the white mailer and everyone has been undamaged. I will know about Tri Klops on Monday
My JLU figures in the white mailers have been undamaged
Its a pretty good track record.

The white mailer boxes have worked for me so far. Before He-Ro, the employees at Digital River always got the bright idea to pack my figures upside down. By the time they got across the country by way of UPS, the top of the cards were in very bad shape. I don't think I've ever seen another company repeatedly do something so idiotic.
I never had problems with the cards being damaged with our without the white mailer boxes.
My King Grayskull outer boxes did get banged up a little, but it appears to be more from the factory than from the shipment.
In Midwinter, the heat from the oven baking my Shrinky Dinks is all I need!
The white mailer box He-Ro came in was perfect for me and it was shipped with Egon and slimer from the Ghostbusters line. Honestly, once I opened the white mailer box I didn't really inspect He-Ro's card as I open all my figures for display. I can't say if it was damaged or clean. My recollection tells me the card was alright but once again, I wasn't looking too hard. I'll try to inspect it closer when I get my Tri-Klops.

My Triklops card was perfect - at least until I ripped it into pieces opening him up.
My He-Ro Cards were A-OK with the box. Haven't gotten my Tri-Klops yet. He's coming Monday.
Uncle Montork has returned from Trolla!
I think the mailer boxes are a nuisance and sort of a waste of money for Mattel. I'd rather have extra accessories or use the savings for a unique part.

I mentioned to another member that rather than having a cardboard box, they should have used a translucent box much like how some stores put out DVDs that have these cases:
It would be a great way to display as well as protect.
Also, the MOTUC logo could either be a sticker on the box or be printed on
Mattel, sound like a good idea?...
