    Subscribing before the reveals is a vote for continuing the line with the more obscure characters.
    I am all for obscure characters. If this was the case then great.

    I'm in. I'm sure they'll stick to their promise for a MOSTLY heavy hitter year. This year, for Comic Con, the only thing I want, is PEACE OF MIND! (Yes that was meant to be yelling!) I hope the subs do well, and do well quickly. I have a feeling this year will have a stronger turn out.

    I dont think this means we will not get an add-on sub. They just dont like to sell them together and have them compete with each other.

    I've been dreading the next horse as well. You know there's another one coming...

    I'm waiting till after SDCC. Running out of things I can trade for after this ye ars line up. I'm hoping for no horses in the sub honestly. Also hoping quarterlies are stronger. I like the Foe Men but I'd have rather had a movie three pack. Speaking of which please let there be Gwildor, Blade, or Saurod in San Diego!

    I think it depends on the execution. But I'm hoping the next horse will be Stridor, followed by Nightstalker.

    If they did Catra's horse since Catra was done in her Horde look her horse might be really cool looking since they would probably give it Horde armor and a darker look instead of it's 80's toy look.

    I'm buying two 2014 Club Eternia subs and if they offer another add on Filmation sub i'll buy two of those also

    Stridor would be awesome, yeah, but an entirely new sculpt.
    As a side note, I've always thought it would be a little weird for them to do a Stridor since Fisto is essentially an unavailable figure. Maybe we'd actually get a re-release?

    Catra's horse with some rad Horde armor--- okay, if they do another horse with the Swiftwind sculpt, THAT is exactly what I want. And you can still get Catra at a not ridiculous price!
    Was this ever in the cartoon, or just your idea?

    Same here. I always assumed we'd get one eventually, but I guess the window is closing for that kind of stuff is closing, isn't it? The Dinosaurs are my other dream beasts. That's why I was never really thrilled with Granamyr-- all I could see was a huge Tyrantisaurus we weren't getting. And now we have a giant sitting dragon with a pot bellly who looks like he came from a booth at Ren Fest.

    I'm kidding-- he's not that bad.

    Interesting. I hope they think the way you do and consider, despite all their protests, a Fisto re-release to accompany Stridor. And they SHOULD do Stridor in the next 2 years.

    I won't wait. Considering all the vintage figures from all lines and potential Filmation and MYP characters I can't think of a 12 figure line up that would upset me...uses they went into lame low priority Filmation characters, which I doubt they will.

    Glad they are doing this. Personally I'll be waiting until SDCC to order because, just in case there are additional subs to announce (a new property perhaps), I want to order everything at once and have it all ship together every month. But the benefit I see this providing is that for people such as myself who like to budget and save up ahead of time, this gives us a longer window where we know the price and can start setting the money aside before placing our final order.
    Classics won't feel complete unless ALL vintage MOTU POP & NA are included
    TOP 35 WANTS
    MOTU:TungLashor/Gwildor/Dragstor/Saurod/Ninjor
    POP:Angella/Mermista/Peekablue/Perfuma
    NA:Crita/Darius/Nocturna/Sagitar/Sebrian/Tuskador/Kayo/Lizzor/Andros/Hoove
    FILMATION: DreeElle/Imp/Montork/Kittrina/Sunder/Twiggets/Masque
    MISC:Lodar/Veena/Miro/Delora/Hawke/OOLarr/Prahvus/Dare/EvilSeed

    Shot through the heart, and you're to blame, you give love a bad name

    LOL

    My feeling for Stridor is that he's more than just a horse, he's a relevant character, and Nightstalker would be a no brainer if they did Stridor. So even though he's a totally new sculpt, they'll get more than one use out of most of it. In general, I would love a few more horses, but I more than understand people being picky at this point, with the possibility that there are very limited beast slots left. Here's hoping we get all of the above, in and out of sub. Stridor, Nightstalker, Mantisaur, Arrow, Storm (storm with bat wings would be rad).

    They are ALL STARS - Remaining Vintage 80's figures both MOTU AND POP and one or two A-Lists that never existed like Scorpia. If you want those figures, the pool is not that deep with what is left, I think about 34+ figures...none of the bad weird / concept / 200x / NA ones.

    I'll be ordering my usual 5 subs as soon as they go on sale.

    I don't care what the line-up looks like, it's all MOTU, so it's all good!!

    With that in mind the closing date is more or less the exact same so I'm not really sure that I see the point here.

    If you can't make up your mind within around a months time of the reveals you probably shouldn't be getting yourself involved in this to begin with.....
    This is where I am. Does this really matter?

    If I'm not going to get Toy#1 until January.... What difference does it make if I sign up 5 months early or they open it up for 6 months?

    Especially if we dont' get any hints or previews... I just don't understand.

    I mean, wanting to see MORE of what your signing up for is logical... but if your going ot buy blind ANYWAY... what difference does a few extra weeks make?



    Personally I'm gonna pass unless there is some truly AMAZING reveals. Odds are I'm done with subs. Way too many figures I just can't seem to sell off. Feels like I'm paying double for the ones I DO want...



    Also, I HIGHLY doubt that they will ONLY be selling Club eternia and Club infinite earths. Seems like they always have a filmation, Ghostbuster, Voltron, Watchmen, SOMETING else else to add on. IF they don't have ANY other subs to sell us on, then odds are NOT good for Mattycollector.com....

    The reveals will probably be awesome. But the whole Eternia 2014 sub will be a disaster, as usual. It's been this way since the beginning of the line. Don't expect Mattel to change a thing. And the whole sub will be brutally pushed through shameful marketing techniques, just like what we saw last year. Finally, disappointment will be part of the package as well, I bet.

    I am hoping for Battle Lion instead of a horse for a quarterly slot. Eager to see what the breakdown of items will be.

    And of course even with the 'extra window' there will still be complaining that they closed the subscriptions sign up to early... just hoping for one or two more reveals to 'convince' them....

    This may be one of the few beasts I'd be excited about from a previous buck, now Stridor, Mantisaur, Nightstalker are all welcome. But I don't want anymore Horses in the sub, but there is no way they release a horse without it being in the sub unfortunately. Glad there won't be a 3 pack, personally I hope the Quarterlies either drop to two $30 and two $50 spots (or less) or we only get two extra items plus the 12 figures.

    Who cares, as long as I get the awesome reveals.

    An incentive would be great and will really push early adoptions..something like Grayskull's checklist poster would do the trick.
