    I haven't voted, but I like attempts like this, with VARIANTS, to establish or maintain interest in a toy line- great job there, Matty! However, had this been, oh, Teela, then I would have been less enthused.
    Having said that, although I applaud this tactic on its face, I have ZERO interest in any version of Hordak, so maybe that makes my viewpoint a little easier to arrive at...

    I didn't vote. I wish there was a middle option. :P

    While anything new and exciting like a mystery figure or whatever can only be good for the line, the fact that I'm going to be incredibly hard-pressed to get him -to the point of probably not bothering at all- sours the deal for me.

    I didn't answer. The point is not about if a surprise figure is cool or not, but hte way of managing the surprise. And the Matty's way is not cool. Not cool at all.

    Due to the nature of the internet, i'm not sure if you're being sarcastic or not... Hope you are! LoL.

    Definitely like the figure but don't like the execution of it. Not a fan of getting up at 3/4 am and then finding out what i had missed out on only to find out i have to keep an eye out from here on end till he is up for sale again.

    I wish it would have been like winning the lottery. Only make 100 figs and never have him sold again. It would have sucked for so many but for that few people it would have been awesome!

    This kind of surprise will probably give the line a good boost...it should happen more often!

    I disagree 100% Things like this create traffic on the MattyCollector site which is why they are doing it and besides subscribers will get a crack at him with early access later this year. I hope the line goes to at least 2015

    I thought it was cool and the energy it stirred up is great. I like hearing all the opinions in how things should be done its a great read. I read a book to my kids and the mom says "You get what you get and you don't get upset". Simple but true with most things in life.

    Actually it's "you get what you get & you don't throw a fit". Tomatoe.....Tomato
    Anyway, was it fun? No. Is it in the best interest for MC. Yes. As a fan I don't want a "thrill of the hunt". I'm not 12. We are probably 80% adult collectors who just want the toys we had as kids. I don't think I should have to chase down an Exclusive figure for an already Exclusive line. I hope they don't do it again. And this comes from someone who finally got one on the 2min sell out on early access.

    Well said. Considering we ALL put our money into this line, exclusions should not be part of the sales map / plan. Why would you want to not get all the money you can especially if that's what is killing the line??? It was cool for a minute and not any minute more....

    Can't vote on these since I feel it goes on both ways.

    It is a great suprised, yes indeedy, but I hated it that I couldn't get one!

    Now that I have 'im. It feels great that I have it and a lot of people don't. It's evil I know and quite selfish, but I did traded a Strobo for it so it is sort of even it out and I'm shutting up now...
