    I dig the 2-Pack answer too.

    Let's say Mattel released Snake Men army builders & Skeleton Warriors.
    I totally want an army of Skeletons but DON'T want the Snakes. Army you want without the hassle of unloading the ones ya don't.

    Thanks for the answer Matty!
    I want my other half.

    The two-packs answer is pretty cool! Two different versions of the same character in one pack? How awesome is that!!??!!
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    I was actually really taken aback by how completely horrendous that answer was. Mattel offers exchanges for defective products, but geeze, you don't get that impression from this answer at all. I didn't know about these problems, but if someone tells a representative of a company that their product "just crumbled," one expects that they would get, at the very least, an apology and contact information for a return.

    Also? Army builder pack answer = sweet.

    EXACTLY

    I might pick up skeletons... I may pick up horde troopers... I have NO interst in Palace guards or Snake warriors... mer-men or Beastmen... So if they only offered Horde trooper vs. Palace guard... That's a waste to me...

    I'd rather they were just single carded than be forced to buy fodder I don't want :/

    Two of the same are cool... minor variations are also cool... I won't be buying 20-30 of these things... but I imagine if you DID... the variations would look PRETTY sweet all in formation

    "No, we are not interested in intentionally finding ways around legal restrictions. That just wouldn’t be playing fair."




    Yet, making the only options for people to buy the figures are to be on a website from 12:00 to 12:03 in the afternoon on only one day out of the month or forcing everybody to buy a subscription without knowing the full list of characters is?

    If Mattel could avoid the 5 minute sellouts, they would. Production is ramping up by June and should improve eventually. Remember in 2009 when Mer-Man sold out in an hour and then by the time Tri-Klops and Webstor came they were taking days to sell out. I bet by September the figures will again be lasting more than half a day on the site.

    Also, there' so no logistical way that Mattel could release every figure they are releasing in 2011 because I honestly doubt even they know for sure right now. Not to mention the fact that would completely ruin any surprises.

    I'm so thrilled that the 2-packs are going to be offered as part of the subscription, and will be offered in the beasts/giants SKU place. I thought for sure that the 2-packs were going to be another additional offereing after they had put the beasts/giants in the subscription in order to make sure we were still having to go to MattyCollector.com. What a relief to know that not only will I not have to deal with the site nightmare, but that there won't be a financially overwhelming amount of products offered at once!
    PRAISE HESTIA!!!

    Off hand I can think of in theory:-

    Palace Guards
    Horde Troopers
    Horde Wraiths
    Skeleton Warriors
    Snakemen
    Kulataks
    Spaaleans
    Caligars
    Birdmen
    Andreanans
    Webstors Children

    And so I walk, into the searing light which banishes all darkness, surrendering my face and form to atoms of dust, seeking the true darkness of peace,the cool shadows of eternity and the unknown fate of nothingness
