    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 -

    Following in the lines of blackiecats and Missile-Toe...

    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?

    Sundevil try contacting Cairo. He might be willing to take the NA stuff off your hands.


    If any of you get your partner(s) let me know. I'll edit the list.
    Or if you come to an agreement and need a "broker" to buy the sub, collect the money, and ship out the pieces let me know as well.

    Added the both of you.

    Please if you read this go out and spread the word in the other Forums. I don't want to be a Spammer but if a few people are mentioning it once in a while, I think it would serve us all pretty well.

    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.
