    For me its a YES and NO cause even though I don't like the price tag being put on these figures which I have a idea it will be the 75 for the sub it could be split up I think to save a bit of cash.

    the price point of 15 extra is a bit much but prices going up was unavoidable.

    Yes. Really like them, especially in "Horde mode". Will definately be using them as Horde Force Captains. It's surprise figures like these that make me love Classics so much.

    I think a three-pack of the Horde Invaders from 'the origin of the sorceress' would have been far better. Though I guess by the time they got filmation rights it was to late to make them for this three pack.

    I would think the "niche" would be collectors who would buy a subscription to He-Man action figures...

    I voted yes (cause I can since I bought one! ).

    It's a 66% Yes 33% no. I really dig the blue dude (I think he is really cool) and the girl. The other dude...hopefully someone will want him!

    I'm cool with them being in the sub.

    I want every character they can throw my way, so it doesn't matter to me.

    I'm not thrilled about the Fighting Foe Men. I want them because I have a major MOTU problem, but they are pretty overpriced and very obscure/concept figures. Multi-paks should be cheaper but in MOTUC they aren't. $75 is a bit much for these.

    No, I think, it was a big mistake to bring them in.

    Obscure & expensive = not an item for casual customers.

    I'm fine with them in the subscription. I do plan to raise Hordak's ranks.

    The more I looked at them, I was happy with their looks, but I am not happy to pay $75 for them. But other than price and knowing no more 3 packs, I can live with it....I just really hope no Non Sub items are out that month.
    Recent....Unnamed One & Hydron
    Coming....
    Wanted....Entrapa, Double Trouble, Light Hope, Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    My favorite is definitely the Roton pilot but I like the customizing potential of the Talon Pilot. His updated boots, loin cloth and arms are going to be great fodder for custom figures.

    Yep; I quite like them.

    I can't wait for their Bio!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    This poll is confusing and misleading. The first question asked is, "Are you happy with the Fighting Foe Men being part of the subscription?". But, then the opposite is asked in the body of the post, "Would you prefer it if they were outside of the sub?". I, for one, voted "YES" because I'm happy that they are included in the subscription.

    You won't likely get an accurate result from this poll.

    I like them but I voted no. I know it's unrealistic but i'd prefer established characters in the sub and obscure concepts outside of it. (established can mean they were only seen in toon form)

    I voted 'No I don't want them in the sub'. They are expensive and obscure, so obviously a major reason for subs going down. I think it's actually insulting these get a release while we are still waiting for Scorpia, Mantenna, Two Bad, Modulok, Glimmer, Flogg etc... and if 2014 is scaled way back, we might not ever see them released!

    I just hope all the folks that are singing their praises want to buy my set from me and lets hope Mattel do not offer these on sale day. I know we were told some items won't recieve sale day stock, so the FFM would be the best item to make limited.

    Well, you're the only one who's found it misleading. It's a pretty straight forward poll.

    I don't think that the FFM don't belong to MOTU, but I do believe that they shouldn't have been made so "early" in the line. TG said that they would be the last of the 3pack, which is a bit of a shame as I feel that there are many other characters which deserved the 3pack treatment prior to the FFM (Rock People, Horde Invaders, 1987 Movie figures...)

    The problem is not about giving us too many obscure characters (some obscure characters are not that bad in MOTUC toy form) but rather giving too many obscure characters too soon. It's a bit frustrating to think that the line could very well end without B- or C-listers like Glimmer, Scorpia, Hydron or Modulok while 3 FFM figures were made in 2013!
    20 Most needed characters before MOTUC ends...

    Heroic: Lizard Man / King Miro / Hawke / Dakon
    Evil: Evilseed
    POP: Angella / King Micah / General Sunder/ Twiggets 3 pack
    Horde: Imp / Vultak / Hunga
    POG: Veena
    SnakeMen: Tung Lashor / Sssqueeze
    Rock People: Granita
    NA: Darius / Sebrian

    You won't likely get an accurate result from this poll.
    The poll question is clearly asked with two simple answers (yes and no) in the poll portion.

    An additional question was posed in the discussion portion of the thread.

    This isn't rocket science, people - LOL - it quite clearly has a one sentence poll question, and a simple answer.


    On the actual topic...

    Personally, I voted no - I am not happy with them as part of the sub. I believe it was one of the many contributing factors that led to the huge drop in subs. People just do not have $80+ to spend on figures of characters they don't know and never asked for. They'd rather just chance it on sale day for the ones they do want.

    I think it adds insult to injury to have Scott running around saying he changed the roadmap to get them in because they were so "high fan demanded". I think he must have been high to think that, as there is virtually no discussion about them prior to their announcement whatsoever - certainly not a groundswell of anything. I can name 50 characters that have been more "fan demanded".

    Are you kidding me? They are the reason i didnt bought a subscription

    Yes they are too expensive, but I do get paid 4 times a month so I can swing it.
