    2013 fan vote figure clarification from Mattel

    Will the figure that the He-man.org fans voted for the 30th anniversary line be final or does Mattel have some veto power?

    There may be some confusion here. In 2013 we will have a fan's choice slot. This slot will be voted on by anyone who purchases a 2013 sub during and around SDCC 2012 (when the sub goes on sale). There will be 8 slots to vote on. 6 slots will be from Mattel, 1 slot from the German fan sites and 1 slot from He-Man.org. Whomever wins this slot (out of the 8 choices) will be in the 2013 line.

    Hmmm...

    Yep, that's how it's been. After the Org poll, the selection goes into a big poll for subscribers.

    I really wish Orgers got to pick one of the actual 2013 figures, German fans one, Matty Collectors forums pick one, Fwoosh picks one, TNI picks one, etc, etc.
    But this current poll is a good start and I hope it's just the beginning in getting a lot more collector/fan input, especially since this is a collector's line.

    Speaking of which, Adam is setting up the Org poll now. I hope to have it posted tonight.

    Where were we given the misinformation earlier? (I might have missed that)

    See I assumed there were going to be three picked figures, one from the Mattel list, one from the Org list and one from the German Conglomerate.

    Even the way they're going is fine, but I think it would have better for the three chosen figures as at least to the two big fan sites would have got a figure each.

    Its going to be exciting nonetheless.

    Just the fact they are involving us, is a big step in the right direction.

    I do agree it would have been cooler to have a figure from the .org, but again, you have to crawl before you walk.

    So, anyone else get the feeling they are just going to end up loading the 6 Mattel slots with figures that would likely have been made anyways?

    That is my concern. Mattel will look up the 6 slots with what they may consider obscure to the average buyer, but isn't really obscure to the hardcore fanbase.

    Sorry, I was not aware of that information, and thus this was new news to me.

    I would think more like 6 characters that are already booked into the line's "roadmap", and the whole thing is just a stunt to get good PR, while making an already planned figure anyway.

    Smoke and mirrors (though I hope it's genuine).

    heck that's fine. .Orgers and the Deuctchers getting a nod is great.

    And if they do front load their choices with only "sorta" obscure that's fine. As long as they are characters I want, I dont care how they validate releasing them.

    Yay, Val! I can't wait!
    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

    I'm sitting here, fingers crossed and hoping the Josh character gets a nod by being included in this poll!

    He got some votes, but Emiliano went onto the thread and spoke out against Josh being made, and I didn't get to offer a counter-response before the thread was closed a day later. I've been worried ever since....

    The poll results are.. interesting to say the least.

    I think this is one of those situations where I hope they do it again, and the guidelines are better defined.

    Penny Dreadful is helping me compile some of the info I need for the poll. After that, I'll get it posted on the main page.

    I tried to be as comprehensive as I could, and run down why certain figures didn't make the cut, etc. I fully expect there to be tons of criticisms about the poll simply because the nature of it was a bit confusing, plus everyone is going to want to see their own choices present. But I hope overall, folks have fun with it.

    I'm not sure they have clarified that you get a vote for each subscription you buy, but I certainly agree that that is a fair way to do it.
