    Me too--after the sub scare the anticipation for this figure was high--really didnt want a delay on this one. Not the end of the world for sure--but with all these delays recently, its like, really?

    Well this is kind of a sad start to 2013.... Oh well, we've waited this long for Ram-Man, waiting another month isn't going to kill anyone. Plus, it's Matty, this kind of news should be expected.

    It stinks. Yes. And this wasn't supposed to happen. Yes. But a month delay I can live with. I just hope this is the last one this year.
    Me too, but that is a BIG hope...

    Another day, another negative experience with Mattycollector.

    The free figure was a great way to deal with their mistakes, but still the mistakes keep happening. I truly hope the 'My Sub' page and "Early Access' page are up (though shouldn't they have already been up?) by sale date AND actually working after being promised the 'My Sub' page for over a year now.

    Getting upset with Mattel over delayed figures is like getting upset with milk for making your cereal mushy. Haven't we seen this before? Oh right, Mattel said there would be no more delays after Frosta. Well, getting upset with Mattel for not sticking to their word is like getting upset with milk for..... repeat cycle ad nauseam.

    Expect delays, dr headaches, qc issues, and decisions made on a whim that go against what's already been stated. That is what Mattel is. And cost cutting.

If you factor in the disappointment & the standard POP hater comments, it does seem like she is unwanted. I still want her, and hey if we get my least wanted out of the way, I got no where to go but up now. But even as a POP fan I'll admit, her on her own is kind of a weak month. Yay Ram Man will be my Valentine!

    Such a shame that a tread about a delayed Ram Man is yet another vehicle for disparaging remarks about a PoP character.

    Funny thing is I already thought this month was Netossa...

    And with having to get a replacement CC I'd rather the kinks be worked out with her than with Rammy. So for me this is good news although I certainly can understand the frustration. Still it's not like Rammy isn't coming. He'll show up next month...

    That's the best part of this. December was a hit. I could use the break. At least we do get one figure, though.

    It never ends
    They couldn't extend sub sales b/c they didn't want to cause delays, yet we've had them two months in a row now, lol.

    Anyway. As disappointing as it is, as mentioned by others it'll be a nice break on the wallet this month after December's insanity. Too bad I have to waste money on Netossa, but hopefully I can recoup at least some of that if I can sell her.

    February, on the other hand, will be one hell of an epic month. One of those "greatest months", like Trap Jaw and Battle Cat three februaries ago. It's all downhill after this!

    I wish people would pay attention to the news, tons of companies are having their goods delayed with the slow down and threat of strikes by the dock workers. I know we are feeling the delays in our business

    Why yes I do b/c I get great toys from them, but this has nothing to do with my love for Mattel.

    As an importer I have been dealing with the delays caused with the threat of a longshore strike

    February last year was also the greatest month ever with Shadow Weaver, Sorceress, and Fisto last year.

    I want to love them. They (the Matty bunch at least) just make it too damn hard. I'd love to give them the benefit of the doubt, but I refuse to do that after 23 or so prior attempts at doing that.

    "Only Netossa".

    Me personally, I'm kinda glad it's just one figure this month!
    Don't get me wrong, I'm mega stoked for Ramman!!! But now I'll be all the happier to get him next month with Jitsu! Two of my favorites from the upcoming figures!

    Thanks SCB! I really needed that giggle this morning.
    I'm honestly happy he got pushed back to February. My wallet is still recovering from the holidays.

    Well, Rockin-H, love is supposed to be hard. If it was easy, everybody would be doing it.

    Not really bothered. It’s only a month. Will still get him. I hope there’re no problems with him, mind you.

    I will say that this is not on Mattel, I work as a 3rd party shipper, shipping for places like Qvc, Hsn, etc. We recently we're supposed to have 30,000 paper shredders come in . Long story short only 12,000 has made it cause of delays.
