I'm another newbie. I was shopping at Amazon for a He-Man Tee shirt and stumbled upon a classics figure on accident. Then checked EBay and was blown away by how many figures had been released already. After that I found Pixel Dan on YouTube and was addicted to his reviews till I watched every one about motuc. Now I'm hooked on Roast Gooble Dinner. All this just happened in Sep of 2012.
It was frustrating at first trying to figure out why I couldn't sub for 2013, I hadn't realized they closed it in the summer.
I'm like a nerd coming out of retirement. When I was younger I would have known about a line like this, but now I'm married with kids. I stopped collecting toys years ago, no time or money for it, it seemed.
The point is, how many others like me are out there? With some better advertising how could this line grow? I have subbed twice for Filmation and can't wait to sub for 2014, and can't wait for my CG. I'm all in. This thread shows that there may be more like me than people realize. Maybe reissues that didn't work earlier may do better now. Only way to find out is to do a pre-order.
It's a bummer that my favorite figure is Fisto, I didn't have him as a kid, and I don't have him in Classics yet either, I would love a re-issue, but only if its profitable and helps the line grow. Just hate to see a missed opportunity.
