    Sub Buddy Program

    I had a thought on Club Eternia Sub Match Making/Buddy Program:

    Would people be willing to sub up together or through someone else to just get the pieces they want?
    For example:
    Person A is a PoP fan. They want each PoP figures only.
    Person B is a MOTU fan. They want MOTU figures only.
    Person C is a New Characters Only fan. They only want the never before made characters.
    Person D is a NA fan. They only want NA.

    If the four of them got together to buy a sub, that would be 1 more guranteed sale (which hate or not is all that Mattel is worried about right now). Either one of them (Person A, B, C, or D) buys it and ships out the figures or they go through someone else (i.e. Me) who buys the sub and collects the money and ships out the figures. That way no one is stuck with unwanted figures (i.e. the current FFM issue). They could do monthly subs to save on shipping. It's sort of what Big Bad does.

    It could also be a way of getting a second sub for just the figures you want.

    Would anyone be interested in something like this?

    If you think it would be something you'd be interested in, post in this thread. I'll see what I can do to link possible subscribers.
    I think the basics I would need are location (USA or International) and what you would be interested in.

    It will be on a first come first serve basis.

    For Example:
    I'm in Virginia and I'd be interested in Filmation and MOTU.
    - Or -
    I'm in Pennsylvania and I'd be interested in PoP.
    - Or -
    I'm from Japan and I'd be interested in Filmation, Mini-Comics, NA, and PoP.
    - ETC -

    Hey, that sounds like a good idea. I've often thought about getting a subscription but there are some i don't really care about getting.

    I've had a look at the newest figures due out and I'm more interested in the PoP figures that are coming out soon.. so i guess i could get on board for that? I don't know how it's going to work or anything yet.. but i thought i'd let you know i might be willing to do this!

    I am from the UK so if that makes it difficult i understand. But any more info on how this would work, please let me know!

    It might actually benefit you in the long run. If you find a stateside sub partner, I can promise you that you would pay significantly less in shipping cost if they go to that person initially than if you had ordered directly from Mattel.
    Sadly, you can't divorce emotion from a toyline built on nostalgia.

    I'm just hoping that we can find someone that would want some of the other stuff and then link you and that person up to buy a sub.

    So you'd be interested in New Adventures, New/Concept, and Filmation Figures?

    What im doing is this- I wrote out the names of the reveals from sdcc on both subs. With DC,I only wanted to keep one, MOTUC all. So basically, I add a sub whenever I get full preorders on what's been revealed.

    I´ll try putting my name in this as I am not sure I can afford a full sub (Ive been wrestlng with it, trying to make it work in my head). My real needs are all of the POP figures. I would also be looking for Two Bad as well (him and Flying Fists He-Man are all I need to complete recreating my original vintage collection), but I would be willing to sacrifice him if need be (despite no DOS). I am in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

    Hmm... I'm interested in the vintage stuff, not so much POP and NA. If someone subs and is looking to unload Vintage, PM me.

    I'm interested in sharing a sub with someone. My interests in the shared sub are mainly PoP and female characters from all other eras. I'm also interested in The Unnamed One and Evil Horde figures. I am very easy to deal with. If there's a character I want that the person I'm sharing the sub with also wants, we can talk it over (ex. I'm sure Modulok would be a figure we both want, but we can discuss it). I shared a sub with a fellow .orger this year and it's been fantastic. I picked up the Fighting Foe Men, NA He-Man, King He-Man, all PoP and Fang-Man, but if there's a figure we both want, we talk about it.

    I will be buying one full sub for myself, but I know I will want extras and this will help save on costs (shipping, figures are $2 cheaper each, etc.).

    Please let me know guys! We only have 3 days left.

    P.S., I would have all the figures shipped to my US address in Michigan, not my Canadian address.

    EDIT: I found a sub-sharing partner!

    I would like to finally buy a sub, with only 3 days to go to find a partner. I would like to partner with somebody who would buy strictly POP figures, I keep the rest. Just pay me the cost of the figures + initial shipping charge to me (I plan to do quarterly shipments to save some $) and then + cheapest shipping to you. I hope to find a partner before the 19th. Thanks! ..and also I would like to partner with somebody reputable, who would not jack me up later, so feedback is important to me.

    I am subbing today in order to get Two Bad, Scorpia, Modulok, and Glimmer. IF we get Mermista, Rio Blast and any MYP figures are also keepers for me.

    Every other basic figure is available if anyone wants in.

    Just did 3 Subs. I mostly want Vintage remake figures, Not really caring about NA or POP or MYP sorts of figures.
    2 Monthly Subs and 1 Quarterly.

    I'm missing a few random figures released over the years, but Am not sure any of the 2014 stuff is worthy bait for trade.
