    Mattel: Frosta's arms incorrect. Sub holders get a free gift apology item.

    Just saw the thread about power con from afi, the first line is

    Frostas arms are incorrect. They know it. They will offer full refunds for sub holders, but this is the only Frosta they will make. They will do a free gift as an apology to sub holders.

    It sucks that Frosta will be incorrect but great to see them step up and admit and apologize for it. Offering something is a great "we are sorry" vs. the take it or leave it from Hssss and Roboto.

    Any thoughts of what it could be? Hopes?

    This is ridiculous. Why can't the people assmebling the figures tell their left from their right?

    Thats too bad, It seams poor Frosta is cursed or something with first the delays, is she grey or white and now the arms. The lower arms should be a easy fix(even though we shouldnt have too) and I will always take a free gift.

    After what happened with Stinkor they had no escape on this one... sadly they didn't have the same attitude with the skunk. Frosta's forearms are somewhat easy to repair but the "dirty snow" outfit color is still flawed.

    I value their apology and accept the free gift. Please send it to my home address ASAP.

    I respect the honesty and the free gift. I'm guessing sword for Netossa.

    Wait, what is wrong with Frosta's Arms? I haven't seen anything in the early reviews?

    They delayed her twice, and still got her wrong. Rrrrr.

    Give her some cool ice swords as a gift. I'd still have to buy them from a sub holder, but would happily do so.

    I thought the same thing! While I appreciate the apology and think that an "apology gift" is nice, I would've much rather had a badass Frosta who wasn't defective. As for the gift itself, I'd love for them to do another version of her staff that doesn't have a pinwheel feature, just a kicka** clear blue staff with an awesome sculpted snow flake.... that's assuming that the free gift will have anything to do with the actual Frosta figure.

    Eh, didn't look bad from the backwards ones that we've seen. Cool that we're getting something for it, though!

    If you pop and swap the forearms will the figure look right?

    An extra accessory for Netossa would be a nice bonus...

    I went back and watched Pixel Dan's review and I really am not worried about this. I thought her arms looked fine and even when I was looking for the error, I really couldnt see where it looked odd or anything. I mean, if Matty still wants to send a free item to me anyways, by all means go ahead

    Admiting the error is awesome, but admiting that she won't be corrected it's just plain stupidity.
    I'm sorry but I don't see a logic behind this... Sub holders will get her for free and an extra accessory, the rest of us, if we want her have to pay the full price.
    Nice work again on handling the ongoing issues with this line, just another display on how they care about the costumers.

    Not that it should have happened, at least they owned up to it, before the figures even came out....
    Good for the subscribers that don't want her, and the others that do will accept it....and the gift is a nice touch.

    For those of us who can do something about it, no biggie, not that we should ever have to fix our own figures.
    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....
