Sub up, people. Get all of the MOTU goodness!
Probably a smart move.
But meltdown in 3...2....1....
Got Man-E-Faces, Give 'em Whiplash when I Battle-Cats
Take that, filthy cherry pickers... oh wait... I am one...
No problem, I would gladly pay 100$ for this character with a smile on my face
After Fang Man, Clamp Champ, and Sea Hawk, this decision came out of nowhere!
Wow! That is huge news! Sub up people!
In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago......a stable place sufficed.
What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.
Well. That's just saved the sub.
It's logistically delicious!

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?
Epic Metal music rocks the universe.
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...

Heretical Vintage Purist and Non-Fan Extraordinaire!
That's too bad...
Proud supporter of the Snake Men.
Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Great Black Wizard.
Most Wanted Filmation: Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder, Teela, He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak head.
No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!
A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!
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.
A Want List of Sorts: Peekablue, Saurod, Veena, Calix, Evilseed, 200X Head Pack, Mara, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter... and all the other POP & NA characters.
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.
MOTUC Wishlist Dylamug, Songster, Evil Robot, Tuvar and Badra, Game Master, Grayskull Robot, Lizard Man, Karg, Prahvus, Skelcon(s), the new villains from He-Ro/Dare
Best news yet!! Just make all figures Sub only with 2-3 figures for day of Sale. Didn't TG say they don't make much from DoS anyway.
