    yeah... I'm torn on THAT concept too... They use the tooling budget in ways I dont aprove of. Instead of more unique sculpts and better accesories/QC/paint... we get concept figures and more SKUs.... Thus raising the prices of the sub more..

    If they took the 25 item subs from last year, and took that tooling into 12-14 figures with AWESOME paint aps I'd like it a LOT more...

    In a line with as much reused parts... we should have PLENTY of budget for 2014. We don't really NEED oversized giants... or $90 figures... 3 packs that aren't a bargain...etc. etc....

    It's NICE.... but not in an 'all or nothing' sub structure

    That is my concern. If the sub gets cancelled will the fandom then turn on each other and blame one another?

    I think a lot of us have come together. Yodafreakmaster's campaign this past weekend was awesome.

    If the sub fails, then Mattel is solely to blame, especially if they were foolish enough not to dangle the Horde Troopers or whatever wanted army builder pack instead of the Fighting Foe Men. If they blame the price increase so much, they should have put a better 2013 lineup to compliment Jitsu and Ram Man to compensate. If 2013 is a failure, it rests at Mattel, not us.

    But let's hope this time tomorrow, we're sitting at 100%, get our 2013 sub, and aim for 2014 (to finish most characters). That's all we can do (and perhaps encourage the last second subbers to jump in tonight).

    Sub sales will actually be open all night to account for any time zone issues. We'll give you guys the verdict in the am. But in all honesty, we are really there guys! This weekend got a huge boost and sales have been strong all day. I was definately concerned due to such a decrease out the gate. We won't be in "line extension or expansion" mode, but as far as the bare min to move forward at least with 2013 as planned, the fans really stepped up and I hope to have great news in the am!

    VERY exciting to hear. I hope for a great 2013 and if/when we get to 2014, I REALLY hope all is well and there's no percentage drama.

    Anyway, I did the best I could do on my limited income. 1 1/2 subs for me.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    Great news, thanks for letting us know, Toyguru. I had to keep you guessing by buying my 2 subs at the last minute! I only tonight realised how good the new option should be for DHL international shipping, so that tipped me over the edge. Well, that and the hint of a Horde Trooper 2-pack!..

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    I honestly believe that if you give us a stellar 2013 with no DR issues, 2014 will see a return of those that we have lost.

    That is great news; all I can do is one sub this year. Locked it down within a couple days of Mattypalooza. Hopefully one sub is going to always be considered better than none. To everyone who's been doing multiple subs and especially to Yodafreakmaster's campaign yesterday... wow... good show. You have my respect.

    I second that; I think you are very much correct. (Alongside with the promise of not another price increase in '14.)
    Say cheese!!!
