SDCC vote Masque vs Huntara
Hi scott you gave this answer to another fans question:
"The Filmation sub was planned before the 2014-2015 rework (as was all of 2013). Before slots were as limited.
The reason for Huntara and Masque is exactly because they are both asked for. We didn't have room for both in the 2014-2015 round up rework and we couldn't decide who to give the slot to. So we decided to let the fans at Sdcc decide!"
Ok I understand you couldn't fit them both in, but since this will be a figure that winds up in the subscription for 2014 Why in the world would you leave this very important vote up to the handful of SDCC attendees instead of giving every 2014 subscriber a link to vote on Masque or Huntara. It's not fair that the people at SDCC get to deside for everyone because not all of them are even subscribers some are cherry pickers.
This Vote was VERY poorly handled. Last year you did a fan vote for every subscriber and Geldor won but for an imortant vote dealing with two highly wanted Filmation Characters that have NEVER seen toy form you leave it up to a SDCC vote just isn't right.
I understand the attendees get special perks for making the trip but they are already getting these via the SDCC Exclusive Items. This vote isn't like a color choice for swiftwind or Granamyr since we were getting those beasts anyway or Panthor flocked or no flock as we were getting Panthor anyway, THIS is a vote for one of two highy wanted Filmation Characters and I think you should have given every subscriber a voice on such an important vote rather than a small group who attend SDCC since the outcome affects subholders.
Also I would like to know which ever character wins will you give them all their accessories without cost cutting?
Example 1- Masque: Two heads and the broken halves of his Demon Mask
Example 2- Huntara: Two heads masked and unmasked, laser swords, throwing stars and all her other types of weapons.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I look forward to your reply
I understand where your coming from. I do. But you pretty much answered your own question in the middle there. Those who attend SDCC do so at great cost and effort. They deserve to have special opportunities. Last year all of the sub holders were able to vote for a figure. This year those at our fan panel will be able to. This is all part of the special programing for those who make the effort to attend SDCC. It is not intended as a slight against sub holders or any other fan base. Just all part of the fun of toy collecting!
