    To SUB or not to SUB...

    3 days remain.
    I've held out thus far without re-subscribing for next year.

    THEN they reveal the GRIFFIN...
    and the White Sorceress
    and STINKOR
    and SLUSH-HEAD!

    All of these are big WINs.
    I really kinda like the Mighty Spector too.

    Has the official word on PRICE INCREASES happened yet?

    What to do?
    Thanks Mangs.

    well remember the white sorceress is not a sub figure

    other than that, do what your gut tells you. out of the 80+ motuc items, how many do you own? how many have you not liked or hated? I say if have 85%+ of all MOTUC items and dislike/hate less than 10%, go with the sub, but thats just my silly math
    the ignore list is my new best friend

    the increase price increase (however much it'll be) will make it easier to shift the figures you don't want too; especially as the rereleases are over for 2012 figures.

    Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
    And by taking the sub, end them.

    Facts

    Prices will go up for non sub holders

    Production will go down to increase sell out times

    The figures keep looking better and better

    People always request a last quarter sub after SDCC because they regret not getting one after seeing the reveals

    Stinkor

    Griffin, Stinkor, Shadow Weaver, Fisto, Kobra Khan are reasons enough.

    Do it.

    Anything you don't like or want you should easily be able to sell off/trade.

    SAPPORT TEH LIEN!!!1!

    Even I gave in and got subscriptions for the first time ever. Something that I never wanted to do but they finally forced me to do it. I buy everything anyways every month so what the hell.

    I'll miss the competition each month, playin word game, seeing Matty's mug flash every 5 seconds on several of my browsers, etc...

    Don't forget they're making Battle Armor Marzo since they saw someone post as Battle Armor Marzo on the boards.

    Do it!

    I've never regretted getting the Sub. I'm a Lifer.
    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

    To Sub:
    - Do you want all or most of the figures?
    - Do you not mind selling off the unwanted figures?

    Not to Sub:
    - Do you only want a select few figures?
    - Does having to sell off a majority of the figures bother you?
    - Have you had little problems with the Mattycollector site, and don't have trouble being there on the sale date (especially for only the select few that you want?)

    That's the best I can think of! Choose the option that fits your interests!

    Yeah! So do it! Join us! Join us!

    I wish I could afford two of each. Not with Uki Junior on the way though...

    Still, lots of us will be willing to take the stuff you'll want to unload!

    I desperately wish there was a 12-figure sub, as I'm in the UK if the package totals more than $20 (ie. more than one figure) I get charged customs fees so high that i couldn't possibly afford the full sub.

    get the sub to support the line.

    also i think the price increase for the big items will be more than $3 to $5 if the DC line is any indication. ($15 for the DC line; and that's one of the reasons why i got the DC sub after all)
