    Does anyone around here NOT think the sky is falling?

    I'm just happy to get new figures every month. If there is a figure that i don't want to keep, i'll just find someone who does want it.

    Nothing falling from my point of view. :-)

    Nope, the sky isn't falling. There's just some loud thunder crackling in the air but there's no storm on the horizon despite how loud and repetitive that thunder is becoming.

    I know the sky is falling when I am forced to listen to and watch Man GaGa, Justin Weiner, and the cast of Ditzy Shore. MOTUC is great, minus the CG bait-and-snatch . . . and quality control issues . . . and crappy customer service.

    GaGa aint all that bad. At least she has SOME talent unlike the rest of the terrible things you mentioned.

    Also she created Mr. Benedict Judas Hel's Titantron entrance theme/vid to the chatroom...

    I just want to say something: this happens ALL the time, like a cycle.

    Whenever constructive criticisms, critiques, etc. are made...some people start saying it's too negative and they start "complaining about the complaining." Right now, I've noticed it's gotten especially bad in some threads because people happy with things are literally fighting with people unhappy with things.

    Then, EVERYTHING you read is a complaint. Legit complaints/critiques, complaining about the complaining and fighting!

    Being happy and saying you're happy and WHY you are happy is awesome. So is saying WHY you are unhappy, what could be done better, what you would like to see, etc.

    It's NOT okay to call people childish, to virtually tell them to **** off, etc.

    We all need to learn to play nicer.

    It seems to me that you are so ready to complain about the complainers complaining about the complainers that you misinterpreted the purpose of this thread.

    We aren't talking about anybody complaining here. We're talking about the sudden fears that the line is ending and we will never see Castle Grayskull, but that sub prices will skyrocket beforehand.

    In the last couple of days, all focus has been on what's going to happen, with very little complaining about what has happened.

    Don't mind Darkspector, he is so used to debating people in the last month or so he misunderstood the point of the thread (I think anyway)

    The intent from what I see is that whenever their is bad news or a revelation the entire board thinks the line is going to die and we won't get any figures EVER

    You are right that its cyclical but it has nothing to do with arguing or being mean, its solely about the end of the world scenarios amongst many orgers that MOTUC final days are upon us every time Scott makes a post

    Sorry if I misinterpreted what the thread was about. There was a mention about the "loud thunder crackling" though, so I thought it fit.

    I just want everyone to play nicer. Is that such a bad thing?

    Nope I encourage it, if everyone played nicer instead of fighting like angry old men we would also get some better discussion as well.

    lol, I'm very positive about the line, and MOTU in general. I get so excited each & every month around the 15th. Thing is, NOTHING lasts forever, but the key is to just enjoy it when we have it. We are in the third year, going in to the fourth, and that's AWESOME for a toyline!

    I just wanted to point out that this syndrome isn't exclusive to MOTUC collectors. Just in the last couple of days, someone over at the Hisstank started a "panic button" thread for GI Joe's 30th anniversary line. GI Joe's 30th anniversary is next year and the first of the toys just got spotted at retail. The thread was posted as a sarcastic response to all of the immediate panic that seems to spring from collectors at even rumor about anything related to their line of choice. So at least it's not just us!

    Not to get off subject but I did see the 30th anniversary Sky Striker at Target. It's awesome, smaller than I remember. I know that the conopy must be connected to the body of the jet but still. Dog gone it! I should of bought it but I'm saving that money for POWER-CON.
