    Single Figure That You Would Subscribe Over

    Okay, hypothetical:

    Let's say that the next year's sub is 99% awful. Like, paint variants of Spector, Shas-Blade He-Man, Yukkers, those kids from the Christmas Special, and factory-defective stock. BUT... one figure is good. Like, really good. Like, really awesome. But this figure is sub-only, and there's a strange law just passed by Congress stating that this specific figure cannot be resold on the secondary market, traded, or given away - it HAS to be purchased through a whole year's worth of subs (hey, stranger laws have gone through!).

    So, what would it take to make that one figure so desirable that you'd eat the cost of a full sub filled with crap? Keep in mind, if those figures are bad, you might have trouble recouping the cost by reselling them. Not saying that it's impossible, just that it isn't a given.

    I am a bit worried about missing him, I let them cancel me based on some stuff, but Mantenna is making me regret my decision.


    one figure I'd Resub for??

    Tough one but I'd have to say Modulok. Filmation looks vintage Mattel functionality.

    While I'd happily take Yukkers and the Christmas kiddos anyway (and I could see the merit to a "phasing" transluscent Spector), I'll play along: in a year of crap, I'd sub for Gwildor, Tung Lashor, Glimmer, or Two-Badd.

    (Of course, these "crap" figures could always be part-swapped to make more interesting figures and variants using new and old parts...!
    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

    There would be several for me, most of them would me of the kind that I would never expect to get, or that we have been told are not possible. So, General Sunder, King Ahgo, Zilora, King Micah, The Enchantress, Melaktha, the Horde Mummy, Karg, Lubic or someone of that nature would make me mark for a sub alone.
    Support GENERAL SUNDER in MOTUC!

    Bring on 2016: General Sunder, Evilseed (Filmation), Karg, General Tataran, King Miro, King Ahgo, Zilora, Melaktha, Hawke, Vultak, Ileena, Lizorr, Dylamug, Enchantress, Lord Masque, Colonel Blast, Kol-Darr, Snowflake, Uncle Montork, Dree-Elle and The Twiggets.

    If a 200X Roboto with all the WMD weapons from the cartoon were included too, then i'd be in it. Hypothetically, he'd be Club Eternia's first figure of the year which would be perfect as i'd cancel my card after he arrives LoL.

    Tung Lashor, Saurod, and Terror Claws Skeletor are figures that would get me to resub without hesitation.

    Well, some are?

    It's kind of hard to find sexual dimorphism in snakes. I mean, let's be honest. Rattlor could be a girl.
