    How many 2011 Subs are you signing up for?!?!

    As the question asks!

    I had 4 for last year, but I'm thinking of only getting 3 this year for the sole reason that the beasts/ giants are now included. That's going to be a $30 to $40 added each per quarter and then the monthly.

    And then there's the bonus figs which will double the monthly charges so, I'll go down a bit on my subs. But then, that's still up in the air!

    Just two for me, but as you say, thats likely to change.

    In 2009 I had 4, but this year only two.

    On the fence between one or two.

    I was thinking it might be nice to have one sealed and one to open.

    I end up getting multiples in the end so I don't know why I make it such a hard decision for myself.

    I'm probably going with just one.

    * In 2009 I had one sub, but ended up buying extra ones from Matty too.
    * In for this year (2010) I have two subs (one to keep in box and one to open).
    * For next year (2011), I'm most likely only getting one sub and probably starting to open all my figures (to save money and space).

    I'll do my final decision about next sub in about month, when the subs are on.

    I sure hope they'll give us some preview as to who the figs for next year's are on this SDCC. That will help a lot on our decision making!

    None. I didn't get a sub last year and with most of the key figures already done I'm not buying into a sub now.

    I got 5 for 2010, so I'll likely do the same for 2011.

    I want to get 2 subs since there's often several characters I want multiples of, either because they have 2 heads, or I have a custom in mind, or I just want to have a spare in case of bad quality control on one.

    Though finances might limit me to 1 sub and I'll just get extras from Matty as and when I need them, rather than be guaranteed 2 of characters I don't like such as if they make Megator, Ram-Man and Man-E- Faces next year. I will see nearer the time...

    I was initially planning for two, to keep up with my "one for opening, one for MOC" collecting pattern.

    However, due to low finances (moving house, etc.), combined with increasing characters that I just can't get enthusiastic about (such as Marzo and Carnivus in the near future, but that's for a different thread) I think I may just have to go for one sub, and pick up extras of the ones I really like on the site, on the day.

    None. For two reasons:
    1)The all-inn option is expensive for me
    2)I will buy only the AFs that I want

    One for Uki! I'm excited!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Zero!

    - Quality control has been getting worse. (my only legitimate complaint)
    - I don't want to shell out for the beasts.
    - I'm starting to loose interest in most (but not all) non-MOTU era figures.
    - The 2011 sub bonus figure is an easy pass for me.
    - Selling off the figures I don't want is a real hassle.
    - The SDCC reveal I like the most, Battle Ram, isn't even in the 2011 sub.

    But I'm not complaining (well, except for the quality control issue). I'm actually glad to relinquish any obligation to have to buy anything next year. I will certainly pick up several figures but it will be nice to do so because I want to, not because I'm obligated. I'm confident with my decision to pass on the 2011 sub and I think I will enjoy the line more. Being able to pass on the figures I don't want will make me appreciate the ones I do want even more.

    As with last year, I will buy 2 subs (1 for loose, 1 for keeping MOC as a backup in case I lose a weapon or breakage or something) and just try my luck on Mattycollector.com for those figures I want an extra head or army builders, etc.

    I have 2 subs for this year, but I don't think I can afford 2 subs with the all-in for 2011.
    It would pretty much eat away my entire budget.
    I have more lines that I like and try to collect so I have to keep it at just one.
    Lines like The Ghostbusters, Marvel Universe, G.I.Joe, and various old vintage lines.
    I'm not even sure if I can get new the ThunderCats toys from Bandai when they are released. If I get 2 MOTUC subs, I will have to drop all the rest solely for MOTUC so my decision has become a simple one since I like the variation of the lines. 1 MOTUC sub will have to do
    MY MOTUC WANTS: Gwildor, Rotar, Mermista, Angella, Peekablue, Spinerella, Perfuma, Master Sebrian, Sagitar, Tuskador, Darius, Kayo, Vizar, Nocturna, Spinwit, Artilla, Saurod, Ninjor, Evil Seed, Lord Masque, Twistoid, Hunga the Harpy, Dragstor, Vultak, Multi-Bot, Blast-Attak, Tung Lashor, Sssqueeeze, Lizorr, Hoove, Critta, Quakke, Butthead, Staghorn

    Few weeks ago, I said, that I'll be probably taking one subscription and that is exactly, what I did.

    Two subscriptions for me. I had set my mind to one subscription, but wanted to ensure I get two of figures with alternate heads for my display. Basically changed my mind at the last minute.
