Well, I can't speak for everyone else, but...
I am not a reseller, nor am I collecting these as an "investment". If they happen to be worth something down the road, that's nice, but if not, no biggie. I really couldn't see myself selling off any of my collection anyway unless I were to get into a really, really bad financial bind and had no other choice.
I am frustrated as to how yesterday went down, and this was the first time I wasn't able to get my order in (and I've almost always been online ahead of time so that I can get these right when they go on sale, including yesterday).
I was amongst those complaining about Moss Man having flocked ears when the pics of the sample figure Mattel got from the factory first showed up.
However, those complaints were based around the 200X-style head, which was shown at SDCC with no flocking on the ears. And I think that's what most people were complaining about. I personally had no problem with the Beastman head having flocked ears because that's how the classic figure was.
As it is, I have 2 unflocked ears Moss Man figures coming from my subscriptions (1 to keep MOC, and 1 to open). Typically for those figures that have more than 1 head, I order an extra separately so that I can display both heads at the same time.
So, I decided to try to order the flocked ears version to display that version of the Beastman head. And, just for the sake of being complestist, I was actually going to order 2 of the flocked eared versions for myself, so I could keep the other MOC (and have 1 of each version MOC). (I was also throwing in one for a friend, so the order would have been for 3 flocked eared Moss Man figures total if it had gone through).
So, at least for me, this has nothing to do with reselling. I'm actually not a fan of reselling/scalping and have stated my stance on that many times.
