    Good video. And I agree with you. For all the conspiracies and accusations that fly around about him and the MOTU machine over at Matty, he's pretty much come across to me as a rather straight up guy. MOTU is more of a labour of love for him, and I just can't see a toy company hatching nefarious plans in order to keep a tiny drop-in-the-bucket line afloat. MOTU has always been a heavily fan driven property after the 80s (Is that a good or bad sign?) so I can see how much he has to rely on us to keep the machine turning. And to the benefit of all involved, we managed to come through. Again. I hope people can appreciate what that really means.

    Those figures look really great lined up like that. King Hssss in particular looks great even without his snake half. Really looking forward to 2015

    Sad that someone still feels obliged to post "you suck" under the video...

    I'll have to check it out later. I am still kind of surprised we didn't get a video form him before the subs were up, though. They extended the deadline, but, other than that, Mattel and TG really didn't seem to do much to push the subs this time around. It's nice to see a victory dance, but I could see some arguing the video is a week too late...

    I think Mattel thought the sub was going to go through fine based on early numbers. Looks like the sub drive was front loaded this time around.

    Scott was also tied up with personal things going on at the end of the sub drive.

    I have to disagree with this mentality that many have that Mattel did not advertise this year. They had pictures up more than ever on Facebook and Twitter. They had the video they showed at the Mattypalooza. The Matty site had splash pages all the time about the sub. We knew they weren't going to be producing TV commercials or ads in comics/magazines, so for what their limited resources allowed them, they did push it more than any other year that I've seen.

    The only thing that was missing was the "scare tactics", which many complained the past two years had turned them off.
    Here's how to end the line:
    2015 200x Mini-Sub: Evilseed, Calix, Prahvus, Horde Wraith, Miro, Veena, Hawke

    2016 line: LordMasque, Vultak, Granita, Despara, Dylamug, Hunga, General Sunder,Tuskador, Crita, Lodar, Quakke, Darius

    Quarterly items: Sagitar, Stridor, Night Stalker

    I really don't understand what good a video would have done anyway. Not that additional advertising efforts are ever a bad thing, but really it would have just circulated the same usual websites, forums, and social media pages that already know about and talk about MOTUC. The information on what the 2015 sub entailed has been known for quite some time, and more so than any previous year, for the most part we pretty much know what's coming, short of maybe a very small handful of surprises.

    The line is at a point where all that is left is mostly D-list characters. This line up wasn't going to bring new people to the line, no matter how they heard about it. A video wouldn't change that. And everyone else knows the score.

    It wouldn't have made any real difference. It would have just been redundant info.

    Say what you want,but this guy gave us the largest motu line ever,the greatest dc line ever,the only ghostbusters movie line,the watchmen line and in my opinion the best voltron ever made. Scott is a success when it comes to the adult collector.

    Now let's see what he does with the real ghostbusters and the new masters line.

    What a great video! Scott really does seem amped over the sub going through and genuinely happy as a fan!
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    Bless him, he has had some spectacular **** ups, but he is made up. Just hopes he gives us a solid attempt at Real Ghostbusters, some out of Sub MOTU items for 2015 and works on something to replace this awesome line.

    Love the video. It looks like TG has beat the hell out of those prototypes though, haha.
