    The "I WILL Commit to Buy 1 More Sub" Thread

    Since we only made it to 90% of the Minimum needed for 2015 Club Eternia to go forward, who is with me and will commit to buying at least 1 more sub to help the line?

    I will start:

    I WILL commit to buy 1 more sub.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Was hoping I wouldn't have to do this again, but I'm in for two more! Which means I'll have six in total!

    Count me in for one more (making three total for me when I have only ever had one per year so far) and I will be checking on upping that to five total.

    Guys just some info for you, and i'm not sure if this is even correct but i was told on another forum site it takes about 65 subs to equal 1% Scott says we need 10% so thats 650 more subs if the 65 subs thing is correct. I don't know why they are waiting untill friday to reopen the subs. 650 subs in 3 days is a tall order.
    Looking forward to the entire 2014 & 2015 line

    We might be able to get 65 with this thread alone! 1% is still 1% closer. Are you trying to scare people into not even trying?

    EIGHT (8) EXTRA SUBS TOTAL SO FAR!!! WHO'S NEXT?!?!?!

    If I get paid in a timely manner, I'll get 2 more.

    That sounds perfectly reasonable to me. It was estimated elsewhere that the number of subscriptions sold the last couple of years were probably in the 6k-6500 range, so if 100%=6500, then yeah, 1% is around 60-65.

    Just to throw it out, Club Etheria passed with only 97%. I suspect if we hit 95% or better they'll let it go through, which would only be around 325 subs. Still a tall order, but significantly more doable. Of course, that is a somewhat dangerous assumption, since they are obviously not obligated to allow the sub to go through for anything less than 100%.

    I'm actually planning on getting one more. I usually buy 2, but only bought one this year. I was kind of regretting it when the sub closed because there are actually a few figures we know are coming I know I want more of one of. So this is a nice opportunity.

    So...

    I am in for 1 more as well. (4 in total). No way that we can let this end right now, this close to the finish line!

    I just recieved my August figures before posting this. It is the 1 day of the month I look most forward to. That is all the reminder I need in why I continue to collect this line. 3 more absolutely amazing figures headed to my display case.

    I will do all I can to make sure this line continues and my collection is complete. I hope that anyone else who CAN sub, will commit to either their 1st sub, or additional subs, and push the line forward!
    Bring on the Snake Armor!

    Jon I hardly would call this "a nice opportunity". It pretty much sucks that we still have numbers to get.

    Compared to Mattel shutting it down today and saying MOTUC is all done, this IS a nice opportunity. All in how you look at it.

    Having the numbers like that really shows how small this line actually is. 6500 people doesn't seem much at all. Many people get two of each figure to have one MOC not to mention those who buy dozens of subs to help make sure it goes through. Wouldn't be surprised if there is only about 4000 people really collecting the line. I'm no expert on numbers of collectors or customers for toy lines so maybe that isn't as low as I think it is?

    Wow, if that is accurate, then MOTU_Maniac and YodaFreakMaster probably account for 1% of the sub, which is a lot more than I thought they would!

    True, and I thought it was clear I was talking about my own personal situation. Not universally. Just because it's a nice opportunity for myself doesn't mean it's a nice situation for us all to be in.

    Anyway, I think we're at 15 now, then, with limelitemach1 and CanadaClassics.
