    Buzz Kill Hordak, love it! It kinda makes sense why maybe the Hiss Torso didn't get packed in with him then if they really did forget. They wouldn't have had time to pack it in now, and obviously Hordak was already packaged and shipped. But I'll leave it at that as we have 50 plus pages elsewhere on the topic!

    interesting they say that collectors choice will either end when quota is met or on 08/10, I don't think they've ever denied subscriptions before have they? I thought they just let it count down to the bottom and however many they had at the time "the more the merrier."

    I am so looking forward to that variant. That was my Hordak as a child. :-)

    I wonder why they did the NA re-release the month before before Mara, and now the movie figures the month before Saurod. Why not the same month?

    Hmmm... I'm semi-tempted to pick up an extra Gwildor (I don't need another Blade to get the discount), but with the Power Con preorders coming up, I may have to pass.

    I thought the same. Probably someone not thinking it through when they typed it up.

    With the 20% they are eating from the discount, they could fund the license to make the 1987 movie figures. Langella Skeletor or we riot Mattel!

    The Blade/Gwildor deal is pretty interesting.

    I don't remember them offering anything similar to this in the past. I wonder if there will be similar specials in the future (e.g. they will bundle "PoP", "NA" and other categories of figures with discounts).

    When I saw Blade and Gwildor were up I thought for a second Saurod must have moved earlier! No such luck, sadly!! Lol

    Unless these movie figures are really clogging up the warehouse, I don't understand why they are being offered now and not during the Saurod sale?

    They also sold NA figures LAST month, instead of this month to go along with Mara.

    Got my Evil Seed paid for, and got a Blade for $12 on EBAY. I'm good.

    Thanks Mattel.

    I think I am in for Mara and BS Hordak. I already own Blade and Gwildor and I am not interested in extras for those.

    Super excited for Evilseed, but I have to wait for a bit to get him, as I subbed quarterly for the 200x sub.

    Do we get charged for 200x head pack of has that alreadly been paid ? I can't keep track, hopefully so cause I budgeted for that but forgot the Quarterly Hordak figure so it will balance (which with Three cases of Marvel legends shipping, Sideshow deadpool flexie pay and Aussie Dollar falling like drop bears in tourist season I could use a break )

    We have already paid for the heads pack. That was done when we signed up for the subscription.

    They said the same thing with the 2015 sub. There is a limit, but we probably won't hit it. They just have to write that to cover their butts, I would assume.

    I just wonder if there's a minimum for CC, or if it's technically a new line?

    There would have to be a minimum, doubt Matty would do it if it was crazy low.

    I imagine the sub limit is to cover there butts on the first figure (Lord Masque ? ) cause factory orders for him would be under way and they can't sell more subs than what they make (think its the reason why beginning of the year figures Sorceress and Two Bad ect are ordered more conservatively )

    The reason I ask is that the last couple subs in their "first year" (MOTU minis, giants, etc) were given a pass, with no minimum for the sub to go through. Seems like Mattel is willing to give such subs the benefit of the doubt. The question is, do they consider Collector's Choice a "new" line, or just MOTUC 2016?

    Yes, they have...DC Signature Series, Ghostbusters and MOTU Minis. Plus failed pre-orders for the Ecto 1 and DC Young Justice Miss Martian/Superboy 2-pack.

    I guess that answers the question about a sub minimum though.

    It's probably posted somewhere, but any ideas as to roughly how much 'Buzz Kill' (lol!) Hordak will be?
