    Yes, I believe Scott said in the past it would be one per sub. And I think this is great. I would love a Mighty Spector, I want to make the custom UK Horde Prime, but didnt want to pay full price. He did say that BF sale was the last chance ever to "buy" the 30th figures, so I would not be surprised if that is what they sent us was all the left over stock for the 30th line.

    I'm always excited for free stuff, especially when (in this case) it's a figure! Chances are it will be an underwhelming already owned toy, but oh well. If it's a figure they have enough of to give to all of the 2012 sub holders you've gotta guess it's someone they have many, many of on hand- like Mighty Spector- but maybe I'm wrong and they went back to press on someone. I have to imagine it's gotta be something good. But again, it's probably just Spector.

    I am sure they are cleaning out stock, but I think it's AWESOME. If you don't like the FREE figure then sell it or trade it for something else. They didn't have to do anything. I think it's way better than a sticker sheet. It's like they are handing each subscriber $20 for free

    Ok, I am putting it out there. If you are so dissatisfied with the figure you get for FREE, then please PM me and I will pay for you to ship your unwanted figure to me. Seriously, with all the complaints so far, I expect to get a couple dozen responses. We shall see.

    First Ill say they didn't have to give us anything, BUT its a figure that is being sent out to sub holders, um we are sub holders we already have all the basic figures lol.

    I am not going to rant and complain, b/c yes its a free full figure, but I would have rather have a repainted item to go with Frosta or Netossa.

    And its a little hard not to feel like they are just using this as a chance to wright off some figures they cant sell lol.

    Oh well still cool to get something free, especially considering the Frosta forearms didn't bug me in the first place.

    That's my reaction to this. I have everyone already, unless it's a character that I would liked another copy of.

    Custom fodder!

    While a brand new something would've been keen, this is still a freebie for a gaffe that didn't really bother me in the slightest, AND it's coming much sooner than we had all anticipated. Sounds great to me!
    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

    I just saw the email and was surprised. Even if it is a figure I already own, I think it's cool of them to do this.

    Should they send out free figures to random people on the street?

    I have every MOTUC figure, but Im excited about this. Id rather have an extra figure to do whatever with than a repainted accesory. Mattel always sells out of whatever those mystery boxes are called. If it was just about dumping stock, making up mystery boxes and doing a repaint of an accesory seems to be the more profitable route than giving out free figures. I think its an awesome gesture.

    Matty is terrible! They have stepped to an all-time low! How dare they give subscribers something for free! I am done with the line. I can't handle being given free stuff, especially a whole figure.

    Consider me among the pleasantly surprised. Never would have expected a company as tight-fisted as Mattel to give out entire figures as the free gift. I was hoping it was just a repainted accessory - this is better.

    Chances are good it will be a figure I already own, so it can be used for a custom, if it's a two-head figure I can feel free to display both options, or it can be traded to someone who wants it if I don't. It's a win-win in my book.
    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!

    I think this is a pretty good gift. I've always suspected that MOTUC isn't as bound to corporate policy as its made out to be but rather managed that way, so this is probably the best we could have hoped for. Sure it's obviously a way of giving a gift without having it cost them too much, but it's pretty substantial as far as freebies go.

    I can't wait to hear reports of people receiving free Frosta figures.
