Hey everyone, I know it's a few pages back now... but everyone needs to chill out a little.
Treat each other with respect.
Don't disparage other people's opinions.
And don't take an opinion on a particular toy as a personal attack.
Not surprised in the least... I don't really care, though. It's mildly annoying in that I really just want to get my hands on this figure after all these reviews managed to get me really jazzed for a character I never used to give two craps about. But, that means two for the next month... and a breather for the ol' wallet. But still, not a good way for Matty to kick off a brand new subscription year. Newcomers, welcome to our lives! LOL...
The joy of the sub is that you get them... period. No worries, and I agree with so many here, the cost has been crazy as of late... give the wallet a rest!
Check out my band The Caterpillar Book on iTunes, Rhapsody, Amazon, etc.
No big deal to me although I'm not exactly one of those screaming for a Ram Man figure either. Yeah, he's a necessity to your collection, but delays happen and I don't take MOTU existing for granted these days. I don't have the "Need it now" mentality that I used to that I see a lot of people actually have nowadays.
Again, no big deal. Pop a chill pill (or two) if Ram Man being delayed til next month is a major issue to you.

No I'm not...
I really do not use Facebook like that and I dont even really, to this day, understand what twitter really is for...
Yet, I signed up for a sub. I would think, that sending out an e-mail would be MOST appropriate to ENSURE that the people who signed up for a sub would be notified.
Also, I would assume that making an e-mail to ALSO notify its sub holders that there will be a price increase for February.
You can be efficent but wholly ineffective...that being said...I think this is an example. How about an e-mail (one e-mail) addressing BOTH of these issues, just an idea....
With Ram Man AND Jitsu being released in the same month, I expect one or both to sell out before I can process my order. Then by the time I delete the one from my cart, the other one will be sold out. While slightly peeved, I knew this was coming when I decided not to subscribe. Secondary market here I come.

Meh…no big deal. I'm looking forward to him but I'm not gonna light torches and start saying how horrible Mattel is. So I'll get Ram-Man and Jitsu at the same time? Nothing wrong with that picture.
200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!
The delay is not a big deal to me. Ram-man's a good figure, but I don't have a shrine to him. He's also a first quarter, not January figure, so as long as he shows up by April it's all good.
Definitely don't get the dumping on Netossa vibe. It's not like we were unaware she was coming, and this thread doesn't have anything to do with her.
Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!
As far as the delays go,it does get frustrating but you have to put life in perspective.
My guess is that Scott's team got the information about the certainty of the shipment delay and they got the info out on Facebook ASAP, but getting Digital River to send a mass email to all the subscription holders probably has ridiculous amounts of red tape. We all know how efficient they are ! I'm sure we will get an email sometime tomorrow.
Kowl, the know it owl!

Personally I think the one month delay is a good thing because it's much better than the partial shipments BS IMO, when you have no idea when your stuff is going to ship and your entire order is held up for one item to be in stock. Like with Granny & Procrustus, I ordered them the first day but had to wait until last week for the shipping email, the whole time stressing that DR wouldn't find a way to bungle things up, with all that extra time they had while waiting of the shipments to come in I'm sure they could have invented a couple of new ways to screw up.
.....Besides, wasn't this what Scott said they were supposed to do when there was a delay, instead of the partial shipment thing?
.....and sorry for possibly adding fuel to the fire, but I was also under the impression that Netossa wasn't exactly the most wanted figure, simply based on the number of posts in the Marketplace of people trying to trade/sell her...... But regardless of my indifference to the character, I'm glad her fans are getting her.
I'm fine with the delay, no probs here. I'm not thrilled about Netossa, but it will be ok. I'm not anti-POP either....I can't wait for Glimmer, Kowl, Mermista, Sweet Bee.....just never had a connection to Netossa, no one I knew had a Netossa back in the day and I just never had that connection. That could change of course when I have her in a few weeks.........it usually does, then I will be saying she is the best yet. Ha!
Ram-Man was too expensive to make so they figured out a way to make him cheaper. That will be my guess for the delay.
Time for a Fang Man and King He-Man bio reveal if you ask me!
Not too big of a deal for me...sadly delays are just apart of being a MOTUC collector.

On it's own, this isn't a big deal. The issue is that this is just the latest added to a long list of troubles with this line. Sad, but at this point, I don't think anyone expects much from Matty. As long as you don't expect anything from Matty (and DR), then they'll deliver.
I don't know, I just think it's unfair to lump in delays with all of Matty/DR's other problems..... I don't believe a delay deserves to even be in the same sentence as say, selling known defective product at increased prices, or canceling subs because of using years old credit card info that was changed numerous times but they still managed to use the outdated #, or breaching a contract by not delivering a figure (i.e. Fisto situation for some), etc., etc., etc. ALL companies experience delays from time to time, not all companies do the other stuff.
Personally, I'd give them a mulligan on delays and not heap delays on to the same pile as the other stuff.

For some reason, I'm tempted to knock a wall down with my head.
