    Would You Buy an ADD-ON Filmation Variants SUB In 2013 ?

    Since the 30th Anniversary ADD-ON Sub will be done by the end of 2012, how about an idea of continuing those SKU's, slots & resources on Filmation variants in 2013 ? It should be exactly like the 30th Anniversary SUB. ADD-ON Sub with a total of 6 Filmation variants per year ! If the 1st year proves to be successful for Mattel, they can extend it to 2014 & 2015 ! By beginning of 2016, all Filmation variants would have seen its figure form !

    As for Club Eternia Quarterly Variant Slots, they should be used for vintage & 200X variant figures !

    So, Filmation fans will get their "Dream Come True" variants & Anti-(Filmation) Variant fans can be "picky" since its not "forced at them in the main SUB ! At the end of the day, everybody will be happy !!

    Will you buy this "Add-On" SUB in 2013 ? What Da Ya Say ?

    I want to say no, because Mattel is having enough trouble with the subs they currently offer... Who the hell am I kidding? Yes. Yes I would.

    No.

    I want to see Filmation characters done in the "Classics" style, in the main line. Not a separate line of Filmation characters that look identical to their portrayal in the 80's cartoons. That would defeat the purpose of the "Classics" line altogether.

    There is no difference between asking for "Filmation" variants, and asking for "200x" variants, which Mattel have stated ad nauseum is not going to happen.

    I want to see these great characters, but I want them to blend in with the already great "Classics" line.

    Yes, but I hope they don't. I spend way to much on motu as it is. Still debating on 2 or 3 windraiders.

    Likely not. Filmation characters classicized I'm down with, Classics characters Filmationized not so much.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    I'd buy a Filmation add-on Sub if it had Classicized Filmation characters that were a little more obscure (Plundor, Kothos, Malik, Mortella, Admiral Scurvy, Dark Dream, Magestra, etc.)

    I'd rather have unique characters than characters I already have in Filmation designs.

    Aren't we already going to be getting at least three filmation characters per year? Last I read Scott said we were.

    Unique characters would be damn tempting...but honestly, the sub is so much money as it is and Mattel is thinking of scaling it back already!
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    Nope.

    If it was new characters, though, (even if they were filmation) I would probably say yes.
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    No, I want only around 10 Filmation characters, I'm sure I'll get them in the normal line.

    Nope. After this Demo-Man incident, 2012 may be the last year I bother with the line unless Mattel can prove they care about their customers during the year. From the assnine cutting prices on Cyber Monday to not having the balls to tell us the Dec figures were delayed until after they charged us, adding on top the lack of enthusiasm for King Hsss' shoulders and making us buy a She-Ra to sit on Swift Wind, I've about lost all of my faith in Mattel.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    The way things are going I'm more likely to buy only that for 2013 and not the main line.

    I dont know about for this idea particularly, but I fully expect them to keep this sku going as an add on sub for something.

    Who knows as what. What's sad is I dont exactly want alot in the way of Filmation variants.

    Hordak. Skeletor (though just his head is enough for me), and Man-At Arms, though I expect to be able to build Man At Arms with my Snake Man At Arms, though I am afraid they ruined that by making him more techy costumed like 200x.

    Point is I dont really feel the need for FIlmation variants.
