King Hiss was bad, THAT I'll grant you
But honestly, MOST of my ankles have been tight, and I've personally had VERY little QC issues with my toys... and it never even occured to me to quit the line because of them...
What I DO think will keep the line small and drive away fans... is the subscription all or nothing mentality. It's not designed to encourage new fans.. it's actually designed to actively SHUN them...
When an old fan looks into the new line... and sees $600+, all or nothing... no reissues, and you'll never get the first 3 years worth of characters again....
THAT's a poor decision... but I don't see that as a general manager decision. that stinks of higher up/pencil pusher decisions... nobody in the trenches could have imagined THAT was a good idea
"A knight is sworn to valor. His heart knows only virtue. His blade defends the helpless. His word speaks only truth. His wrath undoes the wicked."
With that being said...no more known wanted & needed characters should be sacrificed for much less known, or unknown ones...but the unknowns / obscure ones should creep in here and there along with the non sub variants or be bonus figures...
But watch out Mattel may screw with everyone and make Illumina the 2013 sub figure....or 2014...you never know with these guys.

On page 14 of this, heh. I remember when Toyguru and I had a small tiff on the matty boards geez something like a year or so ago now lol that came over here on the org about Illumina and just everything at the time that has been touch on a lot in this thread so I will not bring it up. Much has been said. Rehashing a lot of that that was said ages ago.
All I can say whether or not Illumina is made, it's quite a feat to have her even as a choice win or lose. And win or lose, this poll will gauge her popularity in that one day a figure of her and even Huntra could be made, along with all other obscure and filmation, storyboard characters, what have you.

Marvel comics #81 is a reality through IDW and us fans its being created.....
Make a light-up translucent blue, She-Ra bodied Illumina packed with a light-up cat using the Battle-Cat/Panthor buck. Slap it in a box, limit it to 1500 and sell it through He-Man.org as an exclusive.
I worked for characteroptions and there is such a thing as goodwill. They made fan exclusive Torchwood and Doctor Who figures for sites based in the UK and America. Emiliano and Val designed Illumina and I think it would show great dignity to put one's ass on th eline and ask for at least site exclusives/PowerCon exclusives.
Someone - and I maybe know who, but I'm not sure - needs to stop being an it's-my-sandpit-and-toys, limelight hogging wiseacre and give some love to the org.
