    Actually, it is a rather cool idea, and more value than a repainted accessory.

    In some sense, I would have rather had an existing female accessory made in translucent blue for Frosta or something similar, but this does not upset me in the least. If you really don't want the figure, I'm sure you could sell it for something on eBay or here on the Org. Even $1.00 is a net gain for you if the buyer pays the shipping costs.

    Good show, Matty!

    A free figure for an error that I never in a million years would have noticed anyway? Thanks, Mattel!

    Here's my question if my free figure ends up being Frosta... do I get another free apology figure later?

    Hahahaha! Brilliant post! lol.
    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.

    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!

    Well thisis an interesting turn. I can say I didn't see this coming. A free mystery as an apology is a pretty big step for Mattel.

    That said, and I know I'm probably going to get flamed into oblivion for this, but this gesture just feels rather...lazy.

    Giving away a bunch of figures for free hits them in their wallets, but I would've rather seen a additional accessory for Frosta. It wouldn't have had to have been a new tool, but maybe an existing weapon cast in a light blue translucent plastic would've been well received. I just have a feeling we are going to be seeing a bunch of extra stock that maybe some folks don't want.
    Most wanted: Blast attack, Entrapta, Lodar, Peekablue, Twistoid and Tung Lashor

    But I still purchased her, and the appology item was going to be because of the defective arms... mine were reversed.. I had to fix them myself.

    ..I see your side of if! I honestly do... I just cant help feeling insulted again. As I was told over the phone when I called trying to get the subs and was told "I am sorry sir, but you shouldnt have waitied to sign up for the subscription" by the phone rep when I called about it... cant not wait if you DONT KNOW about it existing...

    ...just rubs me the wrong way. Guess I am still miffed over that call, even now.
    You knowingly bought her.

    As for the sub, it was probably the most marketed sub by the fan community. Blade and Saurod even came out to promote it.

    Hmmmm...now I'm thinking about which figures I'd like a double of...Whiplash, Mer-Man, Teela, Tri-Klops, Dekker, He-Man, Man-At-Arms, SMAA, Zodac, Trap-Jaw, Keldor, Snout Spout, Fisto, Cy-Chop, Spector...Hmmm...
    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

    It's most likely to be the figures offered on Black Friday that didn't sell out:

    Adora
    Buzz-Off
    Catra
    Chief Carnivus
    Clawful
    Count Marzo
    Evil-Lyn (Battleground)
    Faceless One
    Grizzlor
    Hordak (Hurricane)
    Icarius
    King Grayskull
    Mer-Man
    Moss Man
    Snout Spout
    Stratos
    Sy-Klone
    Teela (Battleground)
    Vikor

    Personally, I think this is way cool. Much much better than some repainted accessory somewhere down the line.

    Hoping I end up with a Catra since I haven't picked one up for my daughter's collection yet.
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    I was underwhelmed to say the least at first...but then I got to thinking, "What if this is why Castle Grayskullman sold out so quickly?". Now, I'm eager to see who I get, even though I have every figure.

    Yep, I think this is good --I like to customize, so I could use an extra figure to paint,etc
    They must have tons of extra stock to do this though

    You shouldn't get flamed for that. It's spot-on. This is a freebie, so any complaints have to be measured against that, but Mattel could've done better. Just look at GITD Slimer as an example.

    Why would I want another figure of one I already have since I'm a sub holder??

    Unless its a corrected figure of the few incorrectly assembled ones I'm ok with that
