    online retail sites have done it in the past. Look at the Four Horseman's Seventh Kingdom line as an example. In fact for the most part they made just a few figures, and each site got a repaint and it's own combination of accessories for the individual characters.

    ^Exactly. Red Beastman, Fleshy Trap Jaw, and Evil Stratos would be the best for this endeavor. The biggest online retailers should get the bigger names. BBTS= Filmation Hordak etc.

    I'm all for any way to get mote figures and characters into this line. If BBTS offered a Filmation Evil Lyn and Trap Jaw 2pack, I would have ordered it yesterday.

    What would be the point? If it's a figure that's economically viable, why just give a portion of the profits away to another toy site?

    That's not how it works. Let's say Big Bad Toy Store wants to have a MOTUC exclusive. They contact Mattel and discuss the option. If Mattel agrees, they will tell them how much the will have to pay to get X amount of units. That price tag covers all of the expenses to produce the figure, as well as a profit for Mattel. If BBTS agrees to the amount, they pay for the entire thing up front. So, Mattel has already made a profit and they don't have to worry about selling out or distributing the product. They are not losing out at all. If anything, their brand is reaching a larger audience.

    That's how I feel. It would be a good way to get characters out that will likely not make it out otherwise.

    Exactly. Obscure characters AND variants, too.
