    Support Thread for Rotar & Twistoid to be reissued!

    Normally I wouldn't start a thread like this, but I'm spurred on by the Horde Trooper (apparently) receiving a single carded release after the demand from collectors.

    Unless Matty are still sitting on a huge pile of Rotar and Twistoid (which we don't know for sure), they should really consider re-releasing it.

    Let's face it, most of us on here didn't get a set. This isn't a Shadow Weaver or Horde Trooper situation either. Those were guaranteed when we signed up. We had a chance with those releases...most of us didn't get the chance with THIS one because it was out-of-sub with NO Early Access!

    So yeah, because of that, I think we should be given another shot at these. Whether its as single card releases OR in correctly printed up 2-packs with Rotar's name plate under Rotar and Twistoid's name plate under Twistoid.

    What do ya'll think?

    Here here! I don't care if they are carded, boxed or bagged. I just want the figures I should have had first crack at when committing to a $600 annual subscription to complete my collection.

    Nothing is promised or guaranteed to be in Early Access. That said, Rotar and Twistoid should have been there.

    I don't need any more of this set but support the principle of having important figures made available again. I just wish they would do it for the really important ones like Teela and Fisto.

    Actually, they did promise these would be in early access. Part of selling the sub was the promise of SDCC exclusives in early access.

    Seeing as Mattel love to preserve the collectability of the first release, they can release both Rotar and Twistoid on separate cards minus legs and extras.

    yes, all this is absolutely true. And of course I also missed the set - and would Need one. With These two guys they almost recreated the complete vintage Feeling: they are as hard to come by as there vintage Counterparts... great work...

    I picked up a set off ebay when sdcc was on but there's plenty of people still missing out on them so I'd like to see them back up for sale.

    I'd agree with that...except that I still really want the legs!

    I don't think Mattel has actually promised anything during the entire life of the line; everything has always been accompanied by disclaimers (unsurprisingly).

    But that doesn't affect the purpose of this thread, which I support.

    I really want a second set,once I received my first set I felt the changing of the torso was just a recipe for disaster. The seem a bit brittle on mine. I want a second set to display the spin bottoms.

    For some reason on that sale day I rushed to buy these,yet I felt they would last for days or weeks. My subconscious kicked in I guess.

    We were promised a shot at them in EA and Mattel didn't deliver!

    I would buy a re-issue!

    I need a set too! These are the only vintage figures I do not have and I giant hole in my collection! I also consider them not including them in EA as promised is the biggest offense that happened last year!

    Yes, please! I really wanted them, but missed out on the sale. The reason that I subbed was so that these sort of things wouldn't happen. Isn't that why the sub model was put in place all those years ago? So people wouldn't have issues with fast sellouts?

    Customer: Missed out again! Damn these fast sellouts!

    Mattel: How about you sub up and have your figures guaranteed? You'll even get Early Access!

    Customer: Hey, yeah. That sounds great! I'll do that!

    Rotar and Twistoid: SUCKER! *They laugh, high five each other and spin away*.
    Orko: It's like the Sorceress said: sometimes, the ones who seem the worst, need our help the most.
    He-Man: You're learning.

    I'd buy at least one, maybe two.

    And Mattel did promise that subscribers would have first crack at these in EA. They didn't promise that there would be enough for everyone, but they did promise that whatever they did have would be offered to subscribers first. So by making more, or releasing anymore they might have, then that will help to make up for that.
