Message to Scott from 2012:
The new MOTUC line will be the line you always wished for; Duncan is going to be just about perfect, and you will be getting Frosta, so chill.
But remember this site is the result of the scattered brains of Mattel, and you know what that means. They are going to offer a subscription service to get everything for the year. Go for it the first year, and then dump it afterward. Trust me, the level of incompetence you will eventually encounter is unlike ANYTHING you have ever seen. The people running the site have smash blades where their brain cells should be, and Mattel will simply sit back, ignore the problems, dangle a new, shiny figure in front of you to distract you, then try to gouge you for shipping they said you wouldn't be paying. There'll be some major quality control issues, as well, so brace yourself.
So am I telling you to steer clear of the line? Not going to waste my breath. We both know we love MOTU way to much to pass this by, especially with the Horsemen doing the sculpting (yep, they are back, and in fine form). But play it smart; Digital River, the folks who will be running the site, have no clue what they are doing; it will take you weeks of calls and e-mails to fix even the simplest problem (smash blades for brain cells, remember?). BBTS will be putting all this stuff up for pre-order; it will look like it costs more, but the shipping Digital river will charge you is going to get so ridiculous that, with your pile of loot, you likely won't be paying much more in the long run.
So don't skip the line; you'll actually be getting He-Ro, man. You don't want to miss that. But be smart, and have as little actual contact with Mattycollector and digital River as possible. As Ron White will shortly say, "You can't fix stupid," so just go with people you know you can deal with like Big Bad.
Oh, and if anyone tries to convince you to buy some stock in a company called British Petroleum (BP), walk away. Really fast. Trust me on this one...
