    A FREE figure!!??? Of all the rotten things to do!!

    J/K…I'll take a free figure. Especially since I've fixed my Frosta and she's issue–free.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    I know that I have a list forming in my mind already of figures I still don't have, hoping I get one of them (Teela, He-Ro, Tri-clops...). It WOULD be dirty of Matty to give us a figure from THIS year's sub, but there have been other years I didn't have one. Who knows? Heck, they have to have customer service stock of sub exclusives, what better way to get rid of them and keep their word about not making these figures "available".

    Resigning myself to actually getting a figure I bought on Black Friday though.

    bravo.

    getting a free toy is great and all but people have right to have their contrary opinions and express them.

    it was suggested by the brand manager that a free gift was coming. it was also suggested by the brand manager that it would be a recolored weapon or something like that. a free gift of a figure that the subscriber most likely already has? i was caught a bit off guard myself.

    i just dropped off a mess of toys at toys-for-tots and i love gifting toys in general, so it's always easy for me to figure out what to do with extras. then again, i was hoping for something else.

    hopefully it's he-man!

    I can't believe some think it will be a new figure, lol. Gotta be He-man, Skelly, or original She-ra....possibly some other leftover stock mixed in. All this means is I have another figure to worry about selling. But it is free, sooo...thanks? :/

    The very best free figure I could think of getting is a corrected King Hssss, Stinkor, or "new plastic head" Snout Spout.

    But of course, I'm happy with whatever. Mo-Larr, Skeletor, TMS, whatever.

    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    On the one hand, I already have all of the figures, so it's slightly disappointing. On the OTHER hand, that's a lot cooler than a mere repainted weapon that not all fans would have access to.

    I'm personally hoping for any of the following:

    1) Frosta - weird, I know, but my golden retriever made a snack out of mine.
    2) Shadow Weaver - Could totally happen, since these are 2012 subscriber gifts and she was the 2012 subscriber bonus.
    3) Teela - Always wished I had purchased a second one to display the cobra armor.
    4) King Hsss - Would like to be able to display him in both forms
    5) BG Teela - Good base for a custom Mermista, should Matty never release her.
    6) Whiplash - I sold my extra to a friend in need, so it would be kinda cool to be able to display both heads again.
    7) MAA - extra fodder for the second head, palace guards, Dekker is always a good idea
    8) Castle Grayskullman - Good excuse to buy one of those cool custom heads
    9) Catra - Wouldn't mind trying to paint her up in vintage toy colors.
    10) Mekaneck. Wouldn't mind trying to make a Snake Mek.
    Aaron
    PoP Variants are part of the vintage line, too! Starburst She-Ra, Shower Power Catra, and Scratchin' Sound Catra for 2015!!!

    Seriously, if they don't give me a repainted sword over a $30 plus free figure, I'm calling for Scott's resignation. What kind of irresponsibility is on display when we would be given a $30+ gift instead of $2 one? What is this? Christmas time? A way to make up for past wrongs? Lunacy! This will NOT help customer relations AT ALL! Feel our wrath Matty . . .

    Eh...

    I was expecting something unique.

    This is like "killing two birds with one stone." Matty gets rid of unwanted stock and at the same time takes care of their "gift" problem.

    Don't get me wrong, free stuff is great but getting an already released figure as a bonus sure is a disappointment. I already got doubles on figures I wanted. I would have much rather received some unique accessories, even if they were just redecos.

    I only have 15 left to collect until I get a complete collection, so any for me is welcomed. And if I already have it, I can use it to make a custom. I do think though that it's likely to be one of the Evergreen items. He-Man, Skeletor, She-Ra, Hordak, King Hsss. Or one of the ones that wasn't sold out on BF/CM.

    Classless, Matty, classless. Consider me done with the line after 2013.
    How is this classless? It's a free figure for a minor issue, I was shocked they would give us an entirely free figure even if it was leftover stock. They can also have this issue resolved this year.

    And I will totally laugh at everyone belly-aching over it if we end up getting something cool like TOD Sorceress or Castle Grayskullman. Heck, I don't care who it is... It's a free figure!! I for one am excited to see who I get.
    Well I imagine it won't be a sold out figure?

    Ugh knowing my luck I'll get another Dekker and I'll have to bin him for a second time!.
    Well again I'm overwhelmed, it's an entire figure for free! Give it to a kid down the street if you don't want it.

    Exactly!

    I was going to say the same thing, I like making all kinds mixes and matches, and extra figures are great for this.

    I personally would love a free extra figure for custom made fig to put on my shelf... so now because I missed the sub window this year by 2 days [due to "0" advertising of the line to inform me earlier it even EXISTED]... I feel even more insulted now with it being limted only to subscribers orders...
    This line has been around since 2008? If you visit toy sites or MOTU sites they've been on there? This is basically an internet only line so if you haven't been online looking at toys or don't buy figures I guess you could have missed it?

I dont get this even tho I went back an purchased ALL the figures up to now, PLUS EVERY day of sale figure [EVERY TIME]... sorry, I feel slighted...

    Mattel screwed up an I couldnt get a sub due to a limited time window... an [0] advertising... now I get screwed again with this...
    Sorry but its a slap in the face... insulting.

    [end of rant]
    I don't know how this is slap in the face? It's for subscribers, you missed the subscription window, simple as that. For whatever reason you were not a subscriber for 2012, this was for a mistake a subscriber could not get out of, where as doy of buyers were well aware of before purchasing Frosta.

    Quote Originally Posted by Daniel Lynch View Post

    It probably will not be a 2012 figure.

    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.
    No need to be, why is this such a big deal to you?

    ToyGuru, if you are reading this, I'll take a Photog, Preternia He-man, Wundar or Spector please..
    I don't get it either?

Sub Holders keep this line going (according to Mattel) and they SHOULD be rewarded for supporting the line so rabidly. Did you sub this year?

    Also I am very excited to see what this free figure is...the only ones I hope its not is Cy-chops or photog....if its a double of a figure I already have it will make good custom fodder...heres hoping its GITD Orko with Faker prince Adam
    All sub holders will get the free figure no matter if they returned her or not.

    Guess I'll have another figure to drop off at the Toys for Tots bin. I've already dropped off about 23 toys thus far.

    Betcha everyone gets Mo-Larr.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Interesting! I win no matter what. Either I get someone of whom I'd like a double, or I get much-needed extra parts. Hopefully it'll be good parts! One way or another I'll get something I'll use.

    Back of my brain is still hoping it is at least an interesting new repaint of someone simple, but I doubt it. The ultimate free gift to me would be to repaint Skeletor in his Disco colors, but I wouldn't want to deny anyone of that. No, no we all need to experience that. All of you. But especially me.

    Sweet, a couple free figures for me! I think it's a great gesture by Mattel, I'm always up or a few more MOTUC's! Hoping for a Man-E-Faces, or a King Hiss, heck even another He-Man, I don't have one in every room yet. Plus, I have a new bathroom being constructed, so I need to decorate that...
    Congratulations! MOTUC 2015!

    I think sending us a complete figure is EXTREMELY generous. Who cares if I already have it? If it isn't something I want, I'll give it to someone else. I think this is an awesome move on their part.
