    I'm assuming you're kidding, because there's no way this has anything to do with Chinese New Year. Just wanted to get that out there in case you weren't kidding. Or someone read this and took it seriously.

    Ill just say as someone that was not a POP fan at all before MOTUC, I am very excited for Netossa. With the 4HM they can do not wrong for me and hope we see more great POP females!

    Why continue to make promises they can't keep? I mean, how about being realistic about release dates and more open and honest with fans.

    Disappointing.

    Ok guys, just to be clear, Chinese Newyear is on February 10. In China there is a nationwide holiday of about 2 weeks. So it's way too early for the China factories to be influenced by this. Whatever caused Ram Mans delay has nothing to do with Chinese Newyear.

    I do wonder, if a good number of Ram Man figures got held back due to some other toyline Mattel execs wanted to come over first. He sounds like he's been made, but not all have come obviously. I wonder if this is the reason we tend to see these delays. These figures come by boat, I believe, and perhaps there are times this tiny collector line gets pushed aside for some more profitable Mattel line(s).

    I don't like it, and I would prefer Ram Man where he was slotted in the year, but I feel like there is more to these delays than we suspect. I guess we'll never know.

    I don't like the idea of Ram man delayed, but I can live with it.

    WELL HAPPY NEW YEAR PEOPLE!!! LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!

    Well at this point I could care less when he comes out, we gonna get him! and my recent card is Matty-specified so nothing else goes on it; I'm covered for whenever they release whatever, my resolution so I don't have to deal with the headaches...

    But this now means Ram Man, Jitsu and King He-man being released in Feb. But isn't the Chinese New Year somewhere around the 10th of Feb and from what I understand the country celebrates it for almost half the week, so isn't that gonna be an obstacle???

    I think the new plan of Matty is to loosen up the funds by not including the pricier Rammy so we can all have money for Netty and create a quick sell-out!

    Happy New Year Folks.... to you and yours!!!

    Yes, I was just kidding. I was referencing/joking from the delay last year.

    AND then there are a lot of people like myself who don't want Netossa regardless of how she looks. I never heard of her before her inclusion into the line.

    The main page has the story about Ram-Man being delayed, and it has a pic of Ram Man with the word 'DELAYED' spelled out in big, scary, yellow lettering...like he's a criminal or something. Poor Ram-Man, it's not his fault!

    I actually like all of the factions equally, so I'd be disappointed no matter who is late. But...

    At least Netossa was part of the vintage POP toyline and in the cartoon. That beats plenty of other figures in the line. Ram Man is an oversized quarterly figure, Netossa is a general monthly figures, it's apples and oranges. How is this even a topic?
    I get that Ram Man is a fan favorite, he's one of mine, but none of this falls on Netossa's shoulders. Just because she has the misfortune of being released the same month as Ram Man doesn't make her culpable.
    I suffer through some of the fanboy wants, you can swallow a couple of POP per year. No faction can float this line alone anymore, we all need each other, vintage, POP, NA, etc.

    That's as long they are shipped before this....

    But you are correct sir, the initial delay is not due to this but may fall victim to it.

    I'm pretty happy about the delay. One more month is no big deal. Honestly I am trying to get caught up on my finances and any breaks are appreciated. It could be worse. I have the Hot Toys movie Avengers Black Widow on Pre-order and she has been delayed to Feb. That's 3 months late from when I was supposed to have gotten her.

    On the netossa issue, I really like the figure. I don't collect POP but my wife does. I am happy for her. It's fine for people to voice their displeasure with the figure but when 5-6-7 people at a time post about how she's an unwanted figure, it really feels like people are dog piling on her. I undersand some of you guys don't like her, but don't ruin the fun for the ones of us who do like her. Sometimes just cause you have the freedom to say something doesn't mean you always have too, especially when 8 other people have said the same thing before. It's pretty much beating an already dead horse. I don't like NA but why bother ranting about it especially when there are others who do.

    What are you talking about??? They are being realistic about release dates and they informed us when they knew he was going to be delayed. Maybe it's the fans that need to be more realistic about release dates and understand that so much goes into producing something that delays can and do happen all the time. I have to think that a lot of people on this board only have ever collected this line. So many toy lines experience delays and have horrible communication with fans. I remember an entire wave of Buffy figures that was supposed to be release one August many years ago, August came and went without the figures, and we were told they were delayed 6 six weeks, then we were informed they were cancelled! So that shows the release date came and went and they weren't even in production! I think Mattel do a pretty good job of getting a majority of their figures released in their targeted month.

    Judging by when review samples hit, I would say Ram Man was produced in plenty of time to arrive for this month, but that some other factor played in his delay. Something out of Mattel's control...like the strike at the ports!

    I am let down that Ram Man will not arrive in January. January 16th is my 40th birthday, so I was looking forward to him and Netossa.

    Yeah, let down, but a month with one delayed figure and one figure I would never have had a chance to own in its vintage version, is a lot better than the many years we had NOTHING before the 200x and before MOTUC.

    I am still happy we have MOTU in some form or another.

    I would have done it in red Impact font, but his already red tunic would have made it hard to read.

    I created that pic because it pretty much sums up the story with a glance: Ram Man is delayed.

    I can understand people getting upset at Ram Man being delayed, but we've been waiting for Ram Man for years...one more month won't kill us!

    Won't February be the same amount that January would have been?

    I'm fine with the news, I just think back to how disappointed I was that the Sorceress was delayed...and now, 11 months after getting her, she is happily displayed in my collection, and last January is but a memory. My point is, he will come and I will be excited to get him in February, and within a few days to a few weeks after he arrives, this disappointment will not matter one bit. Besides, Fang Man is who I have my eyes on! I always wanted them to make him when I was kid!

    uh, your paying the same amount in FEB as you would have in JAN

    Netossa x2 + Ram man x2 = 110 (without tax & shipping)

    or

    Jitsu x2 + Ram man x2 = 110


    x2 King He-man is already paid for.
