So for approximately $.10 to $.12 per day for the next year, you would pay for a Panthor and enjoy the unflocked version for the next 1 to 2 years (or more if they ever flock him) or save your dime a day and go without. Seems pretty clear to me, I would be getting the Panthor unflocked.
50/50 is being generous. there has been no evidence to suggest matty will release a flocked version.

also, it's very possible that prices will go up by 2013. add to that if they do plan on a flocked version it will most certainly be more expensive than this one since it would be an added cost.

on top of that, it would probably be the most wanted figure by that time...moreso than the unflocked version so you might have a problem getting him.

to sum up, cons of waiting for a flocked version:

1) they may never make a flocked version
2) a flocked version would be more expensive due to flocking and likely price increase over the next 2 or 3 years
3) extremely popular figures are hard to get (tho you could pay more on the 2ndary market or get a sub if it's still an all in sub...either option obviously costing even more)
