    Well phooey, I got two Merman figures as well. I wish I hadn't bought him on CM. It's great that they're free and all but rats.

    I gotta wonder how they had such a surplus of Merman. Do other characters sell better or did Matty just lose track of a lot of shipments of Merman back in '09? It's especially funny since Merman--or the lack of him--was kind of the kick off to the super-fast sell out panic and hype. Who know we'd be buried with them now?

    Same here. I'm happy they have us freebies, but giving me two different figures is not an unreasonable expectation. Too bad I already have an extra Stratos, and that he's probably the least customizable figure ever. But still, yay for free stuff.

    , 2nd ed. My second sub shipment arrives after X-mas (according to Newgistics), so hopefully they had moved to a different pallet when they shipped that one and I get something different in my last go.
    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!

    Drum roll....... I got 2 Mer-Mans!

    I was really hoping for Stratos so I could make my 200X custom of him.

    You're right, every time something seems good it isn't that's why it's free! (In some cases... ) They begin with a cool idea and nice gesture and then shoot themselves in the foot all over again.

    I hate to say it, but the people who complained about the "free random figure" were right. Not even shuffling them? ***! Very few people want five more Mer-Man figures, as I've seen people are getting. So the situation is either a) They're unloading mostly Mer-Man stock, making Mer-Man as a figure basically worthless or b) They're doing this for multiple figures and couldn't be bothered to shuffle them. It's like saying, "Here! You can sell or trade these! Of course, everyone else is going to have extras of the same figure, so good luck with that..."

    Only Matty could give people multiple free $20 figures for a very small mix-up and make it feel like an insult.

    Its obvious to anyone who's ever worked in a fulfillment center, or with one. The workers are being told, "For every Subscription "bundle" going into the box, put one figure from Pallet A into the box. When you run out of figures on Pallet A, move on the Pallet B."

    So they were packing Mer-Man in each box until they ran out, then moved on to Stratos, then onto Sy-Klone, etc. So most of us are just going to get multples of one character. The only chance any of us has to get two different figures is if they run out of figures on Pallet D and switch to Pallet E right in the middle of fulfilling your order.
    My MOTU Classics Wish:

    The 2015 Subscription - C'mon people, we can do this! If you have any ability to sub, if you were going to purchase elsewhere, please, do it for the rest of us just one more time, so we can complete the vintage MOTU and POP toylines and finish on a high note!

    Dag, according to the tracking number my package isn't scheduled to arrive until after Xmas. Definitely a drawback to being a New Yorker, we always have to wait forever for our subscription bundles. And it's been in Elizabeth NJ fro three days now! Late Procrustus arrival coupled with holiday shipping action is just making it redonkulous.

    I probably just got a Merman anyway...

    I'll be VERY suprised if I open my package mid January and receive something different than a Mer Man...
    Especially since the stuff was sent very early this time.

    I got Mer-Man as well. I'm okay with it, as I kinda wanted an extra anyway. Sucks that everyone's getting the same thing though.

    I received one of my free sub figures. Stratos so far.

    Sort of disappointing because I already have two loose Stratos, and two TRU Stratos. But hey, I like Stratos and it's a free figure. It's all good.

    I got Stratos. I'm glad because I wanted another one to try the wing fix (I didn't want to risk my original one). Since this Stratos was free, I figured why not give it a go.

    I worked out great. One of the bracelets was a pain to get off, but now he looks correct.

    I got Stratos (original burst) he was my first motuc, and I bought him loose (around the time of maa or Hordak)from ebay, and when he arrived the articulation along with the integrity of the original line blew my mind. That's what hooked me. He's the only figure i own I don't have a bio for, so that's cool. I cut all my bios out like a 5 year old, and plan on laying them under a bar counter surface in my garage when I have time to finish the project.
