    MOTU Giants Subscription is now LIVE

    Yep, I subbed up. I know some people won't, but I did.

    I have a feeling these are a pretty low run. And if they're not, and they end up discounted later, I'll just pick them up as extras. But for now, I subbed. I can't be the only one!

    You're not, I also purchased one sub. Nice that they give you a $5 price break if you sub.

    At this point, I really only think I'll get He-man and Skeletor. So I don't think I'll go for the sub. You save about $5 per figure by subbing, right?

    I'm in, after some deliberation. I hope to get the same thrill when I open the box that I did when I was a little kid.

    Yep, $5 off per figure when you sub. So basically, when you sub, you get a free ($5 footlong) sub!

    I got one, even though I'm not a fan of the He-man. I'm sure my I'll like him more in hand.

    I just ordered a few subs!!

    He-Man's head is a bit wonky, but I'm quite impressed with the rest, especially Skeletor!!

    Well, I hope you guys enjoy these.

    I certainly hope the run is lower so the sub goes through. I can't help but speculate that the sales for these just won't be all that strong.

    I think they are making the 4 giant figures shown at SDCC regardless of whether a sub goes through or not. I think they'd already have these in production by now. Whether there is any continuation in 2015 may depend on how many subs bought for these 4. I'm not really fussed if it doesn't go past the 4 already shown, but I did want them anyway, so why not save a little money and subscribe.

    If the packages had been true reproductions of the 80s originals, just on a larger scale, and He-Man's head was, um, better, I would have subbed for these. I like the Giant Star Wars stuff but these just seem like knock-offs in comparison. Like Matty did no research into larger toys and just said, "Hey, big SW sells, lets blow up He-Man!" without looking at the reasons WHY big SW sells.

    Sorry, not good enough. I do hope the sub sells out though, both for those of us that like them and so that Mattel still knows MOTU sells. I like the minis but I have serious concerns over those if Matty goes sub-only...

    For me they're too expensive, especially during this time of year but I was thinking of getting just Skeletor only when he's on sale but decided to just forget about it. He's sporting He-man's arms and that to me is very unimpressive on the part of Mattel. If they make BA Skeletor with his correct arms, then chances are higher I'll get one but not this cheap version being shown this year. Its cool for those that like this line of figures, I hope it is a success and more are released even better.

    They dropped the ball on these giants, especially the main important characters, for shame!!

    I really wanted these to be done correctly. When people are already asking for a 2.0 figure for the main Hero. There's something wrong. But....as much as I love vintage a might bite. But I won't be subbing for only 4 figures at $300.

    Sub for MOTUC Giants and you feed a man for a day (sort of)...teach him not to sub and you feed him for 2 weeks.

    I only want Skeletor from this lot of 4. No sub for me. I would've gotten He-Man, too but -- that hair!

    Walk away from Matty altogether and I'm guessing you can feed him for a lifetime.

    Won't be subbing, but I will get Skeletor for sure. Maybe He-Man but I'm still on the fence. For those that subscribed how was the shipping charge compared to DR's shipping on smaller items?

    Not subbing, but will probably pick up Skeletor. Maybe He-Man if the fix the head, but I doubt that'll happen.

    If you are buying a sub based on speculation, thinking it will increase in value, please let me know your reasoning. I am always interested in a new case-study.

    I'm not subbing for the giants. I'm waiting for the minis next month. That's when the 2015 minis sub goes on.
