    Let's no forget (EVER) the appalling "nooooo!" that got added onto Luke's plummet down the garbage shoot after getting his hand cut off. Godloveus.

    Ok, so the Wind Raider is probably not coming in October??

    And BG Evil-Lyn might be moved to December??



    I was actually looking forward to the 4 items in November... it still will be a big month, but I was PSYCHED to get Snout Spout, BP She-Ra, Swiftwind, AND BG Evil-Lyn all at once!!

    I'm sad about the Wind Raider. Maybe they should move BG Evil-Lyn into October then, so we can have her with Flipshot... I mean, Icarius.

    Moving Evil-Lyn to December would work for me (as and would probably help me to avoid customs taxes.

    As for Wind Raider, personally I don't care when it's released as I'm not getting one.

    Instead of moving BG Evil Lyn/Teela how about we just cancel her altogether?

    I hope the WR doesn't move to Dec because that's a rotten time for mail. November is good, in fact I prefer it since I will be traveling during sale day in October.
    scott, we all like a white astronaut Marlena.

    Would not it be a good combination the white astronaut + warrior marlena 200x to justify a variant?
    find a way.

    Yes, a cool idea, but nothing to confirm right now.
    I wish fans wouldn't give Mattel worse ideas like this. The Battle Armor Marlena from 200X is blue and red, she doesn't go with a white astronaut costume. I hope they don't ruin BA Marlena to make that work.

    Sounds like Wind Raider moving has to do with production and not anything else. Man the releases are going to be crazy through the end of the year into the beginning of next year, anyone know if the Legion of Superheroes 12 pack is out in October? I love Star Wars but added or deleted things don't really get me in an uproar.

    I love when someone doesn't want a figure or accessory, and then decides they don't want anyone else to have it either.

    I read that question and looked at the pictures...and I just don't see anyway that would work. They're 100% different in colour AND parts.

    Hmm. Good point about multiple BP She-Ra's.

    I already knew this, but didn't think about it when posting my dismay. LoL

    I'm still kinda sad about no Wind Raider in October though

    The Windraider was the only thing I was getting in October so it worked for me, Nov is over loaded for me as it is. I really want BG Evil Lyn but maybe Dec would be best for her and the Windraider, I personally was not getting Demo-man.

    Im all for moving Evil Lyn to December. Due to the heavy load in November she was probably going to be my sacrificed figure due to budget constraints. In December there is only Demo Man right now, so I am more likely to get Evil Lyn.As for the Wind Raider, I was probably going to skip it due to wanting the Ghostbusters Trap and having to pay for that, but if it moves to December I may also decide to pick it up. November however, probably not as then we go back to the too heavy load, even worse than before.

    That might have been for Thrawn29, but for the record I didn't say people couldn't have a white astronaut Marlena, just don't ruin a true BA Marlena to get her!

    This was an awesome round!!

    But this is one of many changes we are reviewing for possible changes in 2013 to keep the line going with the number of skus and price points fans feel comfortable with.

    I am so glad that finally Mattel is doing something to fix the out of control amount of item per month situation. Thank you guys.

    It would seem MOTUC is making another change.

    I have a feeling if it's the latter choice, variants are now going to follow the She-Ra 2.0 route and be optional, non-sub purchases. If this is so, I have no problem with it. Lots of fans don't like variants.
    Getting 16 new characters a year and making the variants optional non-sub items would be the best news I've seen for quite some time. Honestly, the very thought of that makes me ecstatic!

    I definitely want Crita, especially the "Queen Crita" version - she looks like a sleazy 80's hair metal groupie!
