    Of my five subs I got 4 Mer-Men and a Fisto, but the Fisto was in a Mer-Man mailer so I have no clue whats going on there.

    Several subscribers missed out on Fisto and there was one hiding in a Mer-Man mailer all along. And to really rub it in they gave it out to someone for free.

    I already have 5 Mer-Mans, 3 of the original and 2 of the DC comic 2 packs. So it looks like I will have 7! I do have that armor from the Weapons pack, so I could dress one up that way. I guess we'll wait and see. My sub should be here by Friday.

    Same here. I have multiple subs and would prefer a variety, but I suppose it is what it is. lol. I'm just happy to be getting a free figure.

    This sucks. I was holding on to a MOC Mer-Man for years to sell him off for thousands of dollars to pay off the mortgage. Now the Mer-Man market is crashing.

    Man, I'd use another Mer-man. I already have two (well, three if you count the blue one) but I guess I could always use another Mer warrior. Now, Fisto... that would be AMAZING.

    I really hope Fisto was a fluke (and I say this as a subscriber who has Fisto and who will be getting a free figure) since as stated the person who received him got him in a Mer-Man mailer apparently (though I don't recall Mer-Man haing a mailer box, unless it's the reissue version or something). After all the fiasco of people being unable to get a replacement Fisto and for some initial orders/subs for him ending up not getting fullfilled, if a plethora of him suddenly start showing up trough this free figure deal, it's going to upset a lot of people, and rightfully so.

    I'll gladly take Mer-Man for the vintage head . . . or Slushhead since my tentacles won't stay in for spit. Would gladly take another Goddess (in case mine breaks - my second one), Teela (to have for a 'Goddess Teela'), or Catra (mine has loose ankles/legs). Mine is currently delayed, so I hope I get one of those.

    If I could choose any free figure, I'd go with a Sorceress, since the one Mattel sent me was damaged and they claimed to have ZERO customer service stock for that figure.
    I just published my very first ebook: Malediction! A short story of monsters and magic!
    Buy it now on Amazon or Barnes and Noble!

    Seeing Mer-Man was one of the original fiascos with this line, I'm not surprised he is showing up now. 1st he was delayed, than DR sent DOUBLE orders to everyone who ordered him, so many ended up with twice what they ordered back in 2009, so those who sent him back gave Matty extra stock. I have enough Mer-Mans, and even though he is a favorite of mine I do not hope for anymore, in fact he might be my last choice as a repeat figure at this point.

    I never got double Mer-man, I ordered him from the original release. Never heard that there was an issue of people getting too many Mer-men.

    Joking right ? How can Fisto, a 2012 figure can jump into the mailer box of some 2010 2nd run figure like Mer-Man ?

    Scud's obviously not being honest. It's already been stated numerous times that Fisto's stock was long gone and that no 2012 figures would be a free gift. I think it's either an attempt to be funny or to cause a commotion.

    It looks like the first wave of shipments involve all the remaining stock of Mer-Man and there must have been a lot left over. I am guessing I got him too, since my shipment went out yesterday and I have 2 subs. Either that or I'll be one of the people to get the next character that'll start showing up in multiple subs.

    There is a post in the market place by Johnny12 that he is selling his free gift of Stratos. You think they would have spread out the figures a bit better though. But only a handful of subscribers have reported what they have gotten also so.

    I had this happen too. It was when digital river didn't have the crowd control. The last screen after submitting your billing info would crash and there was no confirmation. The email didnt even go out for an hour or so. So since sell out happened in like .15 minutes you had no choice but to put the order in again.

    I know he was. No way did he get a Fisto period let alone in a mer-man box.
