    Cherry pickers will be paying well more than $100 for my Two Bad figures

    Wow! That is huge news! Sub up people!
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Might be enough ammo for me to convince the wife on the 2nd sub, too. Two-Bad is going to be up there on the secondary market now. Probably below Sorceress, but within spitting distance.

    That's fine, I'll pay a premium for him. It'll cost me the same as their crazy shipping would cost b/c resellers I deal with don't overcharge for shipping, and I'd get it in a week b/c resellers don't send the package to Sweden first.

    That will probably sell a lot of second subs as well.

    This is one of those things that I really have to ask about... how can they know this right now? If the sub sales aren't done, how can they say logistically they won't be produced for day of sale? If this was already in some form of production and the minimum was 10,000 units + 5% for customer service stock and they sell 12,000 subs, they would have to make more for that, right? And if they have to make more for that, then why not have day of sale?

    Aaagghh, if they only keep most of those POP figures for 2015, I'll purchase a second sub right now. I just don't need to pay more for figures that I don't need!
    I was planning to get a second Two-Bad on DOS, probably I have to resort to ebay now!

    Not unexpected but thankfully I already pre-ordered Two-Bad through BBTS so I'm good...well, not really good but evil. But you know what I mean...

    This is too bad! The final insult with the final relevant figure. Well played Mattel.

    This is brilliant. It's good business.

    Two Bad is only "important" now because he's the last of Skeletor's minions to be made (from the vintage line, not including Twistoid and the movie figures; I consider Blast Attack a weapon of the Snake Men).

    So in the grand scheme of things, it's not exactly a lame move. It's a smart one.

    He's a draw. Heck, they should make Glimmer and Hydron sub-only too, if you ask me.

    Biting the hand that feeds you is good business? It might help the sub go through, but for someone like me who has supported MOTU since the 200x line, but cannot afford the MOTUC sub, it's a slap in the face. Once DCUC and MOTUC are done, I will never, ever support another Mattel collector line. Even if they offered up my dream line -- ThunderCats Classics -- I won't support it. They've burned me too much with stunts like this.

    For you subbers who can afford it, I'm glad for you. But it does suck for the rest of us. I've been cherry-picking up until now (due to finances). If obtaining Two-Bad proves to be financially impossible, I'll probably stop cherry-picking as well. It's time to stop buying Mattel's line that there's only one way to get the job done. They can make the sub survive without punishing those who absolutely love the line but can't afford to be all-in.

    How is it biting the hand that feeds you if the people you're ticking off aren't, y'know, "feeding" you by subscribing?

    So, all the money I've spent on the 50+ MOTUC figures I own hasn't fed Mattel's coffers at all? That's what you're saying?
