    Really?! I have a Fisto already, but if they packed him in with Stridor I wouldn't complain! I don't see that ever happening of course! Maybe a pre-accident Fisto.......
    I'm hoping we get the Battle Ram before Stridor but this is a good solution for newer fans. To make this a compromise, perhaps this Fisto could be slightly different. (ie: Fix his armor so that it doesn't have the giant sword slot in the back, only one head, etc.)

    As I said. I already have 2. This is all I need. Deal breaker.

    I also don't want another variant. As a general rule I despise variants so the fact that I already have 2 Fistos is pushing it for me.

    Actually that's pretty awesome. Maybe I'll sell one of mine. Not MOC, but still, I could probably charge a good $75 to $80 for him.

    If Filmation and 30th Anniv had 6 figure subs, Why not a 6 figure Re-Issue Sub? We could possibly get...

    Fisto
    Sorceress
    Teela
    Shadow Weaver
    Beast Man
    BA Faker

    or others... maybe we'd get to vote on who made it in?
    I see this as a great way to follow the current model (Subs) and also save Mattel money as these are re-issues that require NOTHING to work up. Thoughts?

    Shadow weaver would never be re-issued since she was the club exclusive figure. I do like the idea of a reissue sub for those that missed out. However, then how do you decide what gets reissued since everyone's needs are different?

    Shadow Weaver would be out, and it's a good idea but the problem would be not everyone needs the same rares. Now you could go in with someone, for example I only need Teela and could take a Fisto but I have Sorceress and Beast man.

    In this case, I feel the situation is somewhat different, because there are people (myself included) who paid for the year long subscription, but still didn't get the Fisto as there was not enough in stock. The only reason given to date was that there was a glitch in the system the day of sales, which prevented some subscription holders from getting the figure.The fact that they didn't have enough in stock to ensure that all subscription holders received the figure (which is pretty bad business if you want repeat customers) warrants a re-release of Fisto.

    Would probably be a good way to ensure strong sales for Stridor.

    Completely agree. Make him a redeco (ie: redder hair), scale it down to just vintage parts, and pack him in with Stridor.

    I didn't say anything about fisto. I said shadow weaver would never be reissued. My only thought was about the proposed reissue sub. The problem, even though I like the idea for those that need the figures, is who are you/mattel going to decide which figures get reissued since everyone has different collecting habits and needs.

    And Fisto happens to be one of the best interpretations in the line. I have no real love for the character but the toy is magnificent!

    I'd buy him from you for $75. If you really ever wanted to sell him PM me. As much as I hate that I have to buy him again, and regret selling my only one, he is an awesome figure. It's a shame that he won't get reissued. This is one figure I have to say should be reissued
