At best, the only thing anyone can try and say is it's not a deal-breaker for them, or they don't have room for something that big as is, or they won't play with anyway, or they're afraid this is the last and final shot at a Grayskull, or this one is better than none at all.
All well and fine, and totally understandable as fan perspective.
But an abject failure as any kind of defense.
100% correct.Yes, we get more info on this line than I've seen from other companies, but that is balanced by the fact that many things we are told and sometimes guaranteed in writing turn out to be wrong. People get mad when they are promised something and then do not get it. That's not entitlement, it's simply expecting the company to live up to its end of our contract.
This, this, a million times this.And just for the record, it is truly Mattel that should thank us for keeping this line going despite their endless string of foul-ups and broken promises. Few folks would be so dedicated to a property that they would continue to do business with a website so poorly managed and designed, and a company that goes back on so many of its guarantees with such ease.
My only revision would be to say that NO ONE else would be do dedicated.
It's the only fanbase that's equal parts passion and abandonment issues.
I choose those words partly in jest, but it's true. No other comparable property that was at a time so enormously popular has left fans high and dry, twisting in the wind, and starved for new product as much as has been MotU's tale.
