Right, so we have ONE other vintage POP toy character coming in 2013?
Way to convince me to sub-up, Toyguru. This is precisely why I haven't, for the last few years. That's less than 10% of the line.
You seriously need to change your business model in 2014. Based on a combination of your posts, we'll be getting Queen Angella in 2013 and Glimmer, Castaspella and Mermista in 2014 (or a different combination). It's just not enough. You underestimate the power of POP.
A sub lure of Adora and we just get She-Ra.
A sub lure of Bow and we just get Catra and Swift Wind.
A sub lure of the Star Sisters and Shadow Weaver and we just get Frosta.
There is easily enough room for three or four Great Rebellion characters per year.
What a joke.
Two vintage POP figures doesn't mean that's all the POP figures. It might just mean the only "Great Rebellion" figures. We could get Scorpia in the mix. Or maybe Scorpia and Octavia. I'd be happy with four "POP" character in total. Plus, that means that many more should be coming in 2014.
Your support means more research for the Myostatin-challenged.
It's all about being polished when it counts!
I'm guessing Octavia in 2013 & Scorpia in 2014 for Filmation POP and Hydron in 2013 & Flogg in 2014 for NA. I'll guess the second NA character for 2013 will be either NA He-Man or Skeletor.
I can't see them ever confirming that we've hit the minimum until it's over. I expect a lot of "we're not close, but not quite there".
a lot of us don't get paid till after the first, so with luck it will pick up then

If sub sales are down 60-70% (let's go with 70), doesn't that mean we're only 20% away from hitting the minimum? Since the subs would be okay if they dropped 50%? ...or am I looking at it wrong?
Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

No, Scott confirmed that that's about where we are.
Hmmm 2 NA figures... probably Hydron and Flogg. I defiantly would prefer them to He-man or Skeletor.
I'll hold out a fool's hope for Crita to be one though
1) Last year subs were 50% over the minimum
2) This year subs are 60-70% less than last year (less than last year, not less than the minimum)
Let's do the math (and maybe I'm wrong):
Say M is the minimum; X is the number of subs sold last year; Y is the number of subs sold this year by the time Pixel Dan published those figures.
So, due to (1) X = 1.5M
And from (2), assuming 60% less (instead of 70%) we have that Y = (100% - 60%)X = 0.4X, which means X = Y/0.4
So, it follows that Y/0.4 = 1.5M, and then Y = 0.4 x 1.5 M = 0.6M, which means that we WERE at 60% of the minimum to save 2012 BY THE TIME Pixel Dan talked to Scott.
What I don't understand is what is the math that the person asking Scott if we were 80% of the minimum did... anyways, Scott replied today that it was "about right". So, I have to think that this weekend represented a net 20% of advance, and we still need another 20%.
Am I wrong?

This is crazy.. I hate not knowing, but I'm not suprised by this either with all thats gone on.. I was waiting till today for Vykron so I could get him and my Eternia sub at once(not on the same order, I know better) Hopefully more fans had the same menality.. I don't post much, but I atleast wanted to post up and show support. Heres to hoping!!
I remain optimistic that we'll make it this year, even if it's just barely. And I imagine that next year will be so filled with 80s awesomeness that it will, at the very least, squeak by too. Fingers crossed.

Oh my, I have NO idea now! I'm just hoping most people are waiting for pay day or something like that one thread suggests.
Also, do people just not KNOW about Matty still? I mean...as of right now, there's an eBay auction for a loose, incomplete She-Ra action figure (missing her Filmation head). She's at $19.50 + $8 shipping. For almost $1.50 more, you can get her on Matty MOC WITH the extra head.
Same with Vykron. There's a LOOSE Vykron from China ONLY in his Barbarian get-up with axe. $25.58 + $9 shipping. For a little less than $5, you get ALL THREE outfits, MOC. It's also less risky getting it from Matty than China. Believe me, things coming from China can take a LONG time to get to you.
Either people do not KNOW about MattyCollector.com or they abandoned it because of the super fast sell outs, or issues with Digital River. Whatever the case...Mattel needs to find a way to get these people to their site!
