    Matty subs still available! - (UPDATE: now unavailable)

    Just checked & double-checked and Mattycollector.com still has their subs available for purchase. If you thought you missed out, it looks like you may have 1 more chance. Who knows when it will disappear.

    October 4 - 9:05 am CST
    Top Ten MOTUC wants: Sagitar, Great Black Wizard, Fang-or, Dragstor, Peekablue, Skeletor's Skeleton Warriors, Despara, Evil Seed (all era) w/Odiphus, Illumina w/Sleetah, Lady Slither

    I just saw logged in and saw your post. Went and checked, and there they are - still on the main page. I wonder how long they'll stay up?

    Yeah, I noticed that at about 7am ET this morning. I figure they will take them down today and put up the October sales page. They are running far behind on that.

    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    Finally decided to get on board the 30th anniversary mini-sub. Totally forgot about it yesterday. Good thing they're on the ball and I could still get in today.
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    Yeah they're so evil for offering the sub past the deadline.

    Has nothing to do with being evil, it's a matter of principle. Perhaps you could care less if people say something to you and then do something different...That's on you. Take the sub., action figures, toys, Mattel etc. out of the equation, it's principle.

    I could point out numerous instances where *Mattel* says one thing and then does something different. It's a blemish on ones character. Perhaps you fall in to the same boat since you replied the way in which you did to my comment. I personally don't care for tactics like that, with them or in daily life.

    Does it or is it sometimes going to happen in RL? Sure...but then learn to deal with the criticism that comes along with the territory on how you conduct yourself.


    I could care less if they had the sub. open for a year. Just be up front and tell people what the deal is from the beginning and stick with it.

    Instead, people get jerked around from date to date, final this final that, extension here, cancellation there.....my shipping's now screwed up, this won't combine properly, that will....blah, blah, blah.......


    Just be upfront and honest with what's going on from the get go so that people know EXACTLY what's going on and we could all live happily ever after....

    I wasn't being sarcastic. I think it's highly inappropriate for them to close the sub then change their mind and give people another opportunity to sign up with tactics such as a brand new fan requested 30th sub, along with the combined shipping with all subs no matter time of purchase, then they conveniently have Power Con reveals which gets fans on the fence to sign up again.

    Now that the Mighty Spector, master of time travel, is part of the 30th anniversary sub, deadlines are unnecessary.

    I want to see TG state how, still, the subs didn't compare to 2010 and 11, therefore halting any plans of moving forward on a Castle Grayskull.



















    Not.

    Well we can ask him if opening up the sub changed sales from the lowest selling sub to something else.

    Are you still not being sarcastic? Last time I checked Mattel was a company...

    Yeah I'm confused nowI completely took his initial comment as sarcasm. Mattel has to make a profit in order to continue to produce products.

    I'm guessing he was being sarcastic after what he said after that line.

    Grouchor (definition) - an individual who completely caves when certain subscriptions are available for sale past their initial stated deadline.

    Yes, this is the official definition of me. Logged in at work, saw the add-on was still there, and totally reversed my decision not to pick this sub up. Just goes to show you, if Mattel extended these darn deadlines enough, I would buy the brooklyn bridge from them (some assembly required).

    Well, now that subs are closed, this thread is going nowhere. Congrats to anyone who was able to sneak in and buy it last minute.
