    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 am just thrilled! We got NOTHING for King Hsss, Roboto, Stinkor, black plastic/paint chipping, etc. so I am very surprised and delighted that they are doing anything at all

    PLUS timing is perfect! I am glad it didn't get drawn out another year like GITD Slimer that we are still waiting on....
    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.

    ...an that was the 2013 sub your referring too that they both came out on video comments for...

    The gift comes with the decemeber 2012 [now ending sub] which I was denied purchasing and insulted on the phone over.

    When Mattel sold Frosta non sub, did they let people know that it was reversed? If not that's the only way I could see your side, but if you knew and still bought her that was your choice. Subs had no choice.

    I would be THRILLED with a Wun-Dar or Shadow Weaver. It would be a nice loop hole for them to get rid of old stock.

    Unfortunately, some fans don't understand the point of the "apology gift." The sub-holders were FORCED to buy a "defective" figure whether they wanted to or not. The day of buyers had the CHOICE to buy Frosta or not. The gift concept exists to compensate the sub-holders from buying something they might have chosen to opt out from. The day of buyers had the power to decide whether or not Frosta was that important to them. I'm sorry many disagree, but that is the cold hard truth.

    Very well said. It's not a slight against good folks like Replikor. Its meant entirely as an apology to subscribers forced to pay for defective figures.

    A classy move by Mattel, and I'm quite happy with it no matter what is is.

    Of course, since God has a sense of humour I will likely get Sir Laser Lot, my most hated figure of the entire line so far.

    Well this is cool! Most companies would just say nothing or blame it on the factory. Atleast Mattel is trying to take some responsibility for it's screw ups. I appreciate it even if others don't.

    I am putting it out there now I'm still looking for an extra Man-At-Arms, Catra or Frosta. If I don't have a need for the figure I get, I would trade for one of those figures.

    I just feel that everyone that got a frosta; as they all had reversed forearms; should get the appology item as the apology item was to make up for her arms being incorrectly assembled.

    ...sub holders getting the a free item didnt suddenly make every non sub frostas arms suddenly reverse an be fixed... all I am sayin.

    Its just unfair to the other ppl who wanted frosta an had to buy her anyway to have [any kind] of frosta... as that was ;yet again; a crappy thing by mattel to do by saying.. we wont be remaking her... its buy her or smeg off.... just a dirty thing to do... then only offer the "manufacturing error" apology item to sub only frosta purchases.
    You didn't have to buy her. You knowingly did. It was your choice.

    I'm happy about this. I would have preferred an add on accessory or weapon for Frosta, but a figure is not a bad deal, even if we already have it (fingers crossed it's not SLL or TMS, lol). Give it to a friend or kid to get them into MOTU if you don't want it. Share the awesomeness of MOTUC!

    Mattel is handing out free figures and people start complaining? This is just insane imo. What would you guys have liked Mattel to do instead? I am really curious to see what people expected..

    ToyGuru, if you are reading this, I'll take a Photog, Preternia He-man, Wundar or Spector please..

    I don't understand where the anger of getting a free figure is coming from? The Frosta arms were not that big of a deal. I easily fixed mine in about 10 minutes. To get a free figure out of it I think is a pretty good compromise. Did we really expect Mattel to go into production on an exclusive item? I'll gladly take my FREE figure and either open it, give it to my son, customize it, use it for trade fodder, or sell it.

    Free free free everybody wants something for free!

    Well played Matty, you you get to dump a bunch of unwanted, overproduced stock, AND you get a big fat write off on the deal.

    I think it's cool. Will have an extra body to use up some Vykron parts of an extra head (like Horde Prime's UK head). If it's female I can always use it to fix the Goddess. To me it's a win.
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    I don't mind donating/selling a duplicate figure so I'm good, but I did expect a repainted accessory, something pro-active on Mattel's part, similar to the GITD Slimer they made after cancelling the Ghostbusters subscription.

    So...what you're saying is that because you knowingly purchased a figure that was assembled wrong, it's Mattel's job to award you for it?

    If you went to the store and purchased something that said, "Assembled incorrectly, buyer beware"...you'd expect to get something for you purchasing a defective item?

    Sub holders were required to purchase the figure. They didn't have an option. The only option for them NOT getting it was for the individual(s) to return the figures for a refund if they wanted to.

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

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

    But from my understanding people are still waiting on the GITD Slimer. With the free figure shipping out with this months order it's over and done with. Also, with the GITD Slimer, that was for canceling an entire line people had committed to, not an almost overlooked mistake on a figure that can be easily fixed with a few minutes with a blow dryer. I think the free figure is a justified gift.
