Very interested in this "Celebrate the 100th Figure" comment.
How will the 100th figure be determined?
Are they going by humanoids, or beasts too?
Oh God...not the Windr Radier again...

Where's the fish!!??
Mattel has to get the most out of the Wind Raider tooling plus they need to sell more to make up for initioal costs. That's why they are making more and I'm sure the price will be gouged up even higher.
When TG said that it only sold ok, What he meant to say was. Mattel didn't make back enough money to cover the costs of tooling, etc. Essentially, Mattel lost money on the Wind Raider and they are trying to make up for it.
I have one WR, I won't buy another one...

I wish profit wasn't the only way they measured success. Breaking even on a Battle Ram would be just fine! They are spoilt by the heavy parts sharing in this line and it's becoming a burden to the consumer because it seems that they don't want to produce anything unless they can sell it to us 5 different ways.

But I thought TG said the time it takes for items to sell is not important.
It sold out regardless of how many they made --- So I'd have to say that's a, "Slam Dunk, pretty cool huh." situation.
If Mattel thinks it only did "O" "K"... Than that's Mattel's own fault. Next time make more and sell them at a higher price instead of blaming the customers for WR's "O" "K" sales.

I will agree that Mattel will not take "breaking even" very well... They won't consider another vehicle if they aren't making profit from it. But as always, I think what is said by Mattel is usually BS. I'm sure they made a nice profit from the Wind Raider --- but since Mattel is greedy, It will never be enough profit. Seriously, If the Wind Raider did that bad, why would they make Granamyr?

New stuff was posted--with more on the way!
Looks like Mosquitor was just confirmed for September!
And we're going to find out more about that MAA/Clamp Champ fight--could this be a hint that CC is coming in 2012?
So is he saying the 4H screwed up the accessory? Seems kind of late to notice that something was sculpted wrong.September (3rd) Quarterly Variant Reveal ???
Last year, fans were able to know the 3rd quarterly variant (Hurricane Hordak) way before SDCC. Will it be the same case for this year ? Will it be revealed along with September figure ?
Possibly. We don't have a final figure yet as we needed to rework one of the accessories which was assmebled incorrectly during the sculpt stage.
I know Tg has said before the road map contains the MOTU, POP and NA figures that had a figure before but this line:
The only figures we will confirm slotted in are all the vintage figures from MOTU, POP and NA. Beyond that, you will need to wait and see what surprises are in store!
kind of makes the "if and when we get to him/her" stuff jibberish in regards to such characters as Jitsu that he used the line on before.
perhaps it will be dragon blaster skeletor after all (seeing as his accessory would be quite complicated)
