Battleground Shadow Weaver support thread!
With all the crazy prices going around on Evil-Bay for the crimson mistress at the moment I thought it might be nice to start a support thread for a variant of Shadow Weaver NOT identical to the one offered as the 2012 sub exclusive.
I start by proposing a second head:
Post some ideas here of what you think would make this variant warranted.

Scott already said they will not make Shadow Weaver in any other form. She was the 2012 sub exclusive and thats that.
So don't waste your time with this. Light spinner is on the table but no second Shadow Weaver head.

Unless the subscription model falls apart and Matty isn't looking to pull in subscribers in subsequent years, offering Shadow Weaver again in any form remotely similar to her real look doesn't make business sense. Mattel wants her to hit record high prices and stay up there so resellers buy in next year for subscription exclusive Ram Man.

Stridor in MOTUC!
I will only accept a naked Shadow Weaver MOTUC figure. In fact, if it isn't made, I'm quitting the line.

They aren't doing it to **** people off or because they have nothing else to do. They want you to buy the sub. point blank. What better way to do that? Use a figure that every wants as the lure.
"If" they don't do things like that and appease every one, the result in turn only hurts them. Despite people saying that they could make a killing on her via sale day, I'm sure they crunched the numbers and it simply wasn't as profitable as most think vs. subs.
From a business perspective I can't blame them one bit. I'd also most certainly expect to see this as a trend to come with high demand figures as the exclusive. I'd bet that the days of a Bank Robber He-Man caliber figure are dead and over as "that" is like having no incentive at all.

if she came with legs & a skirt like Marlena, as a subscriber i would be ok with non-subscribers getting her.

Shadow Weaver reissue
I know it's a long shot (Like not likely to happen) because the original Shadow Weaver was the sub exclusive. I missed out on her because I couldn't afford a sub at the time. Now I wouldn't want them to rerelease her as she was for the sub, but since the mold is there they could release a new version as a quarterly variant. I'm thinking maybe a lighter red, closer to Catra, with newly colored accessories and I think giving her glow in the dark eyes would be really cool. It's my hope cause the secondary market prices are like "You may have this figure, but that means your rent must go unpaid Mwa ha ha ha!"
On a side note does anyone know what happens to, or if there is any CS stock for exclusives like Shadow Weaver and King He-Man?
