    Nope. If they won't do a second run on other demanded figures like Teela 1.0, Shadow Weaver, Fisto, then why should they do the troopers.

    Of course they should. They sold out in 10 minutes. Obviously there is more demand.

    Yea but why should they have to there is going to be enough day of and later on right? ....They did increase the numbers right? There is video proof of someone saying this right?

    I don't believe a word anymore it's one lie after another.....

    You know funny thing is that some people say no because they got their figures so who cares about anyone else which is why this line won't be around for much longer...

    Some people really only care about how much these items will become so they can make money on them on E-Bay and if you want it you have to pay Scal-Por prices and it sucks to be you...

    I really thought these guys would be in more supply to accomidate other people not just the subbers especially since they were on record saying that they would be enough stock on hand....

    THis is a silly poll, no offense. Of course they should. I still hold out hope that at some point, maybe once the line ends, they will do limited runs of fan favourites or demands.

    This is a terrible comparison. The figures you are talking about are not "army builders". Totally different scenario with troopers. And this is coming from a guy who doesn't have teela, shadow weaver, or fisto
    MOTUC Needs:Fisto, Whiplash, Shadow Weaver, Spikor, Sorceress, Mighty Spector, Batros, Foe Men, Frosta, Griffin, Granamyr, Shadowbeast, Horde Prime, Jitsu, Rokkon/Stonedar, Jet Sled, Goddess, Wundar, Strobo, Castle Grayskull, Yellow Evil Lynn, Dekker, Pre-ternia He-man, Star Sisters, snake men, NA He-man, TP He-man, horde trooper(s), sky high, Faker, Snake MAA

    I'd say yes! I'd probably pick up another set or two eventually.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Every person who said no is scalping or overpaid. Suck it up and move on, make your money and move on to the next scalp.

    The silly part of this thread is that collectors are saying no to a 2nd run, they sold out in under 10 minutes and are a multiple army builders set.

    Yes but like was mentioned before those are the one's that are putting them on E-Bay and charging $100 or more...The way this line is handled is getting worse instead of better....

    I'm amazed by how many palace guards I have by occasionally thinking "why not?" and adding them to an order. Of course, I have heard that Matty is looking to cut down on warehouse space, but otherwise, I would certainly add even more troopers to an order every so often if possible.

    'Then why should they do the troopers?'

    Hello, it says it right there on the BOX of the troopers: build an army!

    How can the majority of people do this within a 7 minute glitchy window?

    I have a question: since TG seems to brush fans off with 'no we can't we won't etc' --what happens if one goes above him? Ie to his manager? If enough demand is shown to the higher ups, won't they oblige?

    Absolutely they should bring 'em back! They are a freakin' gold mine for Mattel and the fans really, truly want these guys! I got two sets, and those are enough for me, but I could potentially see people buying DOZENS of these two-packs.... seriously, Mattel what are waiting for?

    I don't collect Horde. I am not interested in Horde Troopers.
    But he Horde Troopers sold out in 10 Minutes and there is still a lot of demand for them.
    So... yes, I think they should get a second run!

    I believe they should do a second run. But that's just me...

    Why would they do a Shadow Weaver? She's a sub bonus exclusive. You get her when you subbed. That was the whole point of her being in the line as a sub bonus figure!

    As for the Troopers, they're Army Builders. "ARMY" builders! Like the Royal Guards and the Snake Men. You can have more than just one or two, three, maybe four sets.

    Why, yes of course! I could buy enough of them but I know that many people out there couldn't and want more. C'mon Mattel, meet the demand!

    For sure they should, pretty pointless in building an army of HT if they're unavailable. In a perfect world, the HT would be an ideal set to have extra stock available of (like He-Man etc...) and should be on Matty's Collection Essentials page.
