    Seriously:
    If Los Angeles alone has more subs than the whole of Germany, and we already sold 350 TOD Sorceresses at Grayskull Con, I again have to assume that LA alone holds approximatly 500 subs. And there are several really big cities in the US, right? 20 maybe? 30? Even more?

    Again, unless someone proves me wrong, I will stick to the fact that 10.000 units was and most propably still IS the minimum quota for Mattel.

    There are probably a lot of non-ORG buyers out there. I'd guess at least 1,500, if not more.

    Yes, Bjorn, but I think the point is that if we here on the org represent about 10% of the market for MOTUC, then that should be consistent, so if we ordered 800, we can extrapolate that the overall sales are about 8000. I just made up those numbers to illustrate my point, but you see what I'm saying. I think sales here should be a good measure of sales overall.

    I know buddy. I know!

    I didnīt mean to pick up that number specifically, but wanted to address the fact that ALL those numbers were too low. And yeah, I realize that number was only meant to be a percentage-indicator for the total.

    You can't just say 'the numbers are too low', you have to take the cost into consideration. $250 is a hefty sum. It's likely based off what they estimate they can sell, which is probably a much lower number than what some of you are saying.

    Grayskull will cost considerably more to produce than the average figure, wouldnīt you agree?

    Good math! I'm convinced.
