    Frosta gift is free figure, no choice [Remember - No B/S/T Outside Marketplace]

    Mod note: Guys, though I understand it coming up, and I don't know how serious you are or if you're making a point - please be sure to keep all trade/buy/sell offers in the Marketplace. Thanks!




    Just recieved an email from matty, the Frosta gift is a free reg figure, you don't know who's coming.

    Ah, it won't be a new figure. Mattel is dumping their old unsold stock on us.

    Classless, Matty, classless. Consider me done with the line after 2013.

    I doubt it's something like Buzz Off. Might be a TRU type repaint like Red Beast Man or something. Here's hoping. I'm not sure quitting the line over this is the correct reaction.

    agreed. it's a whole figure. I don't see this as classless, I figured it would just be some weapon repainted. or a printed something. even if the figure is Cy-chop or spector (my most loathed figures) I definitely appreciate the gesture. I can have a figure or give it to a charity or a child or trade it etc. A figure is a great gift imo, definitely bigger than i expected.

    Please let the Good Lord hear you! I do really doubt it would be anything not previously sold like a repaint or even a repacked DC vs MOTU figure. I must consider myself lucky if I may get another Castle Grayskull Man, I'm more lean towards Grizzlor, Keldor, Catra, King Hsss, Buzz-Off and the core remaining stock.
    If I may get another Wundar or Shadow Weaver I'd probably suffer a stroke at opening the box

    I hope to get a Merman...or another figure that comes with multiple heads for display (I wouldn't mind a Demo-Man either...just for another Alcala head!)

    My question is....Will it be 1 figure per customer or 1 figure per subscription?
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    I think this is pretty cool! Way better to me than a sticker sheet or something!
    I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!

    I got the same email:
    Hi %%FIRST_NAME%%,

    As the year comes to a close, we wanted to say “thank you” for being a loyal Club Eternia® subscriber in 2012. It's been a great year with incredible highs (Fisto™, Rattlor™ - two vintage figures that surpassed even our expectations) the occasional minor misstep (Frosta's gloves), and more incredible highs (Griffin, a 200X beast, and Shadow Weaver - our first Filmation figure!).

    So, to make sure you know how much we value your business and as promised at Power Con in noting the issue with Frosta's gloves, we're sending you a FREE gift… a basic Masters of the Universe® Classics figure will be included with your December subscription shipment! You won't know which one you're getting until it arrives and because it's our gift to you, shipping for this freebie figure is 100% paid by Mattel. While we originally thought this gift might not come until late next year, we wanted to end 2012 with a bang and make sure you get your free gift before the year is up!

    Looking ahead, 2013 promises to be even more powerful! We'll start out the year with Ram Man® and Netossa™, then get ready for the arrival of the first Castle Grayskull® playset in 30 years.

    Again, thank you for being a part of our MOTUC family. We wish you and yours the happiest of holidays!

    The MattyCollector.com Team

    Apology accepted! With all the foul ups we have endured, getting a free figure is great. We can setup a thread to swap if we dont like/need the one we get. It should be great and it will help build the .org community. Think positive people!

    Seems like the Frosta "gift" is leftover stock.

    Just a "mystery" figure.

    Scott said that there was no new tooling involved...so I'm assuming it'll be a regular figure but it may be random (like a mystery figure packed in with your normal shipment)

    Like others, I have everything that I want from Mattel, so the free figure won't mean that much to me. Plus, I never noticed the Frosta mistake. I think that Frosta is a great figure.

    I hope that I get the free toy soon enough because I will be happy to place it in a Toys for Tots bin around Christmas time. If I don't need the figure, then perhaps a needy child will find some joy in it and come to like MOTU, too!

    That is an excellent idea!

    For everyone that doesn't want/ need/ appreciate the free figure then donate it to Toys for Tots or some other charitable organization Millions of kids around the world will be going without this Christmas, so I am sure they would LOVE it!

    If it's a figure that I don't need/want or doesn't come with a second head, I will definitely do this. Good idea!

    I was not expecting a figure I think it's a nice gesture. Better that a random weapon or some such thing especially for a MOC collector. If you don't want the figure you might consider donating it to Toys For Tots. Thanks Mattel. And merry Christmas.

    I would be stoked to get either of those for free, personally.

    I'm guessing it'll be leftovers from Black Friday, though.

    I fail to see an issue with this. A free figure is a free figure - they didnt have to do this. Well done Mattel
