    It could also be Flakey Gold Hordak or Exploding Torso Goddess figure...but I hope some folks end up getting Teela, Roboto, Wundar or Pre-ternia He-man... I don't really care because I will certainly be positing on the B/S/T thread so its like $20 in my pocket anyway you look at it.

    Hope you're right! A friend of mine asked me to pick up a Teela for him WAY back when she was released, and I said I'd pick one up when she was reissued...but yeah, that never happened. If I get a second it would be a super easy Christmas present!

    I'd gladly take a pre-2012 figure even if it ends up being something I already own.

    I doubt this will happen but I love the idea. As doubtful as I am it would be awesome if Teela was one of the free figs!

    You know, I went from mildly irritated/amused at the idea that our bonus was an old figure, to somewhat excited at the possibility of receiving some good custom or trade fodder, to now being completely excite about it.

    All of my MOTUC figs (besides Oct and Nov) are currently in storage while I'm in DC for 9 months of job training. Scott said the figures are from pre-2012, so no chance of me getting an extra Oct, Nov or Dec figure...so basically, it'll be like an old friend popping in to say hello!

    I'll be irritated if I get another Trap Jaw. I went back and forth about getting him (for a Kronis to display) during the BF/CM sale and eventually bit the bullet because of the discount.

    This year was the first year I got a sub so I missed out on a lot of older figures. That being the case, almost anything I get is a strong chance of filling an empty slot. And I never opened my figure so this whole screwy arms thing was an issue I had no complaint about. I'll gladly take anything they give me, I'm happy for a free figure because honestly they're in charge, Mattel could just as easily said "get bent" and would be within their rights to do so. The fact is that you were promised a Frosta figure and you got it, so the terms were met and their obligation to you ends there.
    By acknowledging there was a problem the company did in fact go above and beyond what they're obligated to do. So to be compensated in anyway is something I personally thank them for, if you don't like that there was a human error that's your prerogative, but just know that the age of "the customer is always right" died years ago when the customer started abusing that principle left and right and expected to be treated like gods rather then simply people who chose to purchase whatever is being offered. Also keep in mind you get a free figure instead of the standard fallback of "pay the postage to send it back and we'll correct the problem in a few weeks and return it to you" so all in all this is a good solution for a quality control issue. Sorry if I got on the soapbox, and this wasn't aimed at anyone in particular, just you get tired of seeing folks complain about every little thing from time to time and you gotta vent it like this ya know?

    Why would that irritate you? Trap Jaw is a decently sought after figure that would be great trade bait to get what you really want. So, That could be a WIN/Win situation.

    Getting something you don't want could easily turn into getting something you really wanted.

    If anyone wants to trade if they get Bow or have an extra Frosta please let me know. My daughter is now addicted to my old She-ra DVDS and I got her BP She-ra, Catra, Adora, and Swift Wind for X-mas during the black Friday sale. I would trade whatever free bonus figure I got for one of those 2. I have subscribed since day one and have all the figures but now I have to buy duplicates for my 5 year old of any She-ra figures because she wants mine

    They're giving away something like 15,000-20,000 figures—there isn't likely to remain any stock of anything left for newcomers to buy at decent prices on later sales.

    Mattel is using the "apology free gift" as an excuse to clear out their warehouse in a quick-and-dirty way before the year ends. If they genuinely wanted to apologize for the Frosta fiasco, the appropriate way would have been to re-run her and send the fixed version free of charge to every customer that got a defective one; not to get rid of unsold stock of older items by giving them to the people that most likely already own those items.

    I've spent over $3,000 on Matty during this year, I'm still Teela-less, and I've received a defective Frosta that I paid $22 for. But I won't be getting any free Teela or Optikk or anything because I wasn't around when 2012 subscriptions were sold. Whereas scalpers that bought 10+ 2012 subscriptions and only paid $20 for their Frostas (and resold them even before they got them in the mail), may be getting free extras of highly-demanded older figures to resell them for a 100% profit at $100+ apiece.

    Matty is rewarding scalpers, who care nothing about the brand itself and will leave in droves at the drop of a hat once the line become less profitable to resell, while giving a big middle finger to the real fans that just discovered the line and are spending untold amounts of money trying to catch up.
