ok, so then does that mean when both figures sell out in less than 5 minutes, people won't be screaming bloody murder that their childhoods were raped, and that "THEY'RE KILLING TEH LIEN!!!!!!!!!!!" this time?
Half of you who say you won't be buying...you so know you will be.

Count me in as one on the fence, not because of Optikk, I kinda have some love to grow for him and is part of the sub.
Tytus has pretty much all the pain points for me: no nostalgic attachment, no great design, no good points of articulation, the most expensive item of the line so far and no gift coupon as has been done with BC.
The positive aspects would be that I'd like to have a complete collection and he should look awesome once Megator would be released to put those together.

My feedback thread
you are not along men, me too im waiting for the real classic figures like Man-E-Faces, Mekanek, Kabra Kahn, King Hiss, Cyclone, Stinkor and a large list of etc.
I've been on the fence since I first saw the pics of him and was quite surprised that TG and 4H are bringing him into the line so early on. The lackluster details and articulation don't help and I'm in the freakier-the-better camp, that's why I like my villains the best. I'm sure Megator will look ten times better and look awesome posed with Tytus so I'm leaning toward getting just one (to open) instead of my usual three (open/MOC/xtra), plus I hate to admit it but I am a completist and have a hard time coming up with characters I wouldn't buy.

So, Tytus, who had a figure in the 80's is too obscure, but He-Ro who would have eventually made it into the line is not?
Oh and maybe we should not all send such a message - as most collectors want ALL of these figures to be made (the fasts ell-outs speak a very clear language). Only the haters have the loudest voices.
I'm on the fence......about whether it's meatballs with pasta or just plain mac n'cheese for lunch.
Tytus I'm not getting. Poor value and I don't care about him. More for you guys......
My theory on this is...
They have created optikk and tytus to test the sales waters for NA and POG figures. If they don't do well on sale day, or in other words if they don't sell out super fast they will probably consider not doing anymore of those figures and stick with the first 5 waves of the MOTUC line.
I personally will be saving money this month.
I'm a little less enthusiastic about Tytus than before, due to the not-so-great shoulder articulation. But it's still such a good-looking figure, I'm gonna buy him anyway.
I'm gonna get Optikk as part of the sub, but even if I not, I'd order him in a heartbeat. I wanted a new Optikk figure for the 200X line already, so this is like a little dream come true to me.

I'm not on the fence, I want both of them.
Subscription took care of Optikk for me, but I wanted one anyway because I own the old toy from '89 and I always liked me.
Same thing for Tytus, I own the old toy since my childhood and I want an updated version of him. I'm afraid of the possibility that he will sell out in a few minutes, but reading so many comments from people that aren't going to buy him gives me some hope.
The sub takes care of Optikk. All I need is 2 x Merman. No desire for a Tytus.
There is no doubt about it I want them both. Optikks are already on their way and I'll try to get Tytus on Monday.
Without very strong nostalgic feelings towards Tytus, I might not want him.

My seller/trader/buyer feedback:
MOTUC Most Wanted: 1) Stridor 2) Night Stalker 3) Roton 4) Dragstor 5) Saurod 6) Karg 7) Lodar 8) Mask of Power Demons 9) TC Skeletor 10) FF He-Man 11) Talon Fighter/Point Dread 12) Road Ripper 13) Lord Masque 14) Filmation Teela
Since I never had any of the vintage He-man line, I don't have any feelings of nostalgia for Tytus or even Optikk. Haven't even watched NA. But! I want Merman because I know who he is compared to the other two. Actually, I'd really love to have He-Man too...
I'll be buying one Optikk figure and i'll be buying Tytus as well. They weren't a part of my childhood either but for the simple reason of being a completist, i don't think i would have bothered.
I find it humorous that this month has me the most excited with optikk and Tytus, 2 of my most wanted figures for this line.

I'm going to try and get Tytus but not because I'm really interested in him...moreso for the fact that Megator will need to battle with someone his own size!
This is encouraging...I might actually be able to get a Tytus after all now. Hopefully all of these people passing isn't just internet talk.
SLUSH HEAD FINALLY SHOWED UP IN MOTUC YAY!!!
Going for the fish and the eye... the dude with pituitary gland disorder does not interest me.
FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.
