    I am looking forward to the fighting foe men and I sure hope they add the wind raider guy shortly.

    With the FFM forthcoming, I would've preferred the Wind Raider Pilot as the sub exclusive over King He-Man any day.


    But that's probably just me.

    Toyguru on the subject of shipping multiple months worth of items to save on shipping.

    That's funny that's exactly how many feel about your subscription plan.

    Agreed. Especially Since he would look cooler in his own package or packaged in a two pack. lol

    It amazes me how much we have left this year. We are getting almost an entire year's worth in the next 4 months! I'm glad we got some sunshine from Scotr about the future being secure for 2 years more most likely, and then adjusting to stay alive in some form. So much to look forward to.

    Honestly, I feel Eldor would be the most ideal sub exclusive.

    I would have been happy with King He-Man or Eldor. However, with the amount of people that complained about Preternia Disguise He-Man, I just don't know that Eldor would have gone over any better than KHM did!

    I was kinda "meh" when King He-Man was first revealed. However, I am quickly warming up to the idea of him! Not a bad sub exclusive at all.

    At least they didnt make the sub exclusive Ram Man, right? I almost wish they did since I'm subscribing anyways and the line probably wouldnt be in danger due to lower sub numbers.

    I really wanted the Wind Raider Pilot released, I still do, and was my pick as the sub exclusive. I really don't need a KHM, where I would much rather have Snake Armor or Laser Power He-Man way before this concept but he does look good. Eldor would've also made a better choice as he is a fresh new vintage character never before released before and a great add on to POG.

    I decided to order my sub yesterday. I really wasn't sold on it this time after the price increase. I could live without a few of the SDCC reveals this time. What got me was the idea that I just plain might not be able to buy the day of stuff I really wanted on the day of. Gotta have Ram Man!!!! I have had a sub every year so far, so it's all good.
    I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!

    Do sub exclusives even matter anymore? If some figure won't even have DOS, then they're all sub exclusives.

    Sometimes Matty can't win. Shadow Weaver is the exclusive for 2012 and some people freak out saying you shouldn't have such a popular charatcer as a sub-exclusive. So they put in King He-Man and now some are saying it should be someone more desirable like Ram-Man...lol.

    If it was Ram-Man people would be burning down Mattel headquarters right now.

    I've seen this floating about on Facebook and a few forums. If this has actually come from Mattel that then that's low. I'm sorry If I could afford a sub I would have it in a heart beat but living in the I can not really shell out nearly 600 on toys, and if that doesn't make me a true fan as it see,s to be on this board then I guess I'm not one.

    And the fact that this site the one place on line any fan of motu,na,pop, 200x is now has that mentality it just sad
    And so I walk, into the searing light which banishes all darkness, surrendering my face and form to atoms of dust, seeking the true darkness of peace,the cool shadows of eternity and the unknown fate of nothingness

    Funny, for all intents and purposes Ram Man is the sub exclusive figure now.

    There will likely be no day of stock for him. They just accomplished this in a more subtle way.

    I don't think anyone said Ram-Man should've been the sub exclusive, just that he if he had been, the subs certainly wouldn't be suffering right now. I'm glad he wasn't the exclusive, I just think King He-Man is lame.

    It's not an official image. In the lower right hand corner you can see "Bock" as in "Mike Bock."
    The image doesn't say true fan on it though... just a fan.

    I certainly don't think you have to buy a sub to be a true fan. But if you're a fan and can, buying a sub isn't a bad thing.
    I hate the term true fan. If you like something, your'e a fan. Period. No need for subcategories or levels.

    Exactly... 3 for $75 is not a deal... if they need to be $25 each, break them up and release them over time.

    The sub is the sub exclusive if they're not available as DOS.
