    That Quakke looks so good in package! Makes me wish I would have gotten a second, to keep one sealed!

    I really REALLY appreciate how open Brian and the gang are about what’s going on behind the scenes. Their communication skills are top notch, and while I’m a little impatient about getting my preordered figures later than expected, at least I know what’s going on.

    Also loved the closing message this time around about support and how excited they are for upcoming products. Plus Brian has some of the same problems as I do with the new Star Wars.

    That's what i'd be tempted to say about Fangor as well (for a different purpose though!) ... Luckily for me, i did a better choice.

    I'm glad they are taking their time to make the figures the best they can be. I know it's frustrating for some but to me it shows they really care.
    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!

    I am happy that they are making a quality product and not just throwing stuff together. I got the Power Con 3 pack Gr'asp from Shecky yesterday and he is amazing. If the figures are like him. The future releases will be worth the wait.

    It was nice to see Fang-Or and Quakke in package even if they were unpainted. Still, I can't wait to have both CC and CG figures from Wave 1 in hand at last. At least it does appear that the wait will have been worth it.
    I have finally returned from Despondos.

    Agreed on both counts. Well worth the wait to get product that's given good revisions and quality control.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    From the sounds of it he doesn't like the delay and must have felt he should have had his product a lot sooner, but he would have had sub par product if he did instead of corrected product.

    He needs to understand that the Super7 Factory never made MOTUC figures before so yeah some mistakes were made , but 4H and Brian Flynn went above and beyond to correct everything so that we all get the best product. If he wants his money back that's his choice, everyone whos posted was fine with waiting so long as the figures were corrected and great looking.

    I am sure if you contact super7, a refund will be issued. A new customer service rep has been hired so he should be able to help you.

    I have zero issue waiting as long as super7 is correcting the issues.

    That's where I'm at. Understanding that this will be the first proper run of figures through their own factory (depending on whether or not you can count the Power-Con sets), I'm willing to give Super7 the benefit of the doubt, extend patience where otherwise I might be troubled. Moreover, I'll reserve judgement until I have the figures to review in-hand. (I don't quite count the Power-Con figures and my nontrivial gripes with them, as I gather they were produced under time constraints which did not allow for corrections such as Super7 is making on the main wave figures)

    Basically. I don't see a fiasco. Yet. If after all this time, communication, re-work, etc ... if after all that we still get botched figures, then there's a fiasco. But until/unless that happens... I have faith Super7 will execute to my satisfaction as a collector/customer. Why? Their continually improving communication, attention to feedback, etc.

    I'm as anxious as everyone else, but I see it as a very good sign that S7 delayed things to address fan concerns. In the long run, I think that bodes well for the line's future, as the company seems to be listening to its customer base. A delay to get things right and give us what we expect is, in this case, methinks, a sound business move.

    As I said if they make a quality product and not rush though it. I can wait. I would rather S7 get it right the first time.
