    Current 2012 MOTUC Release Schedule (Feb 25th) SnakeMen 2-pack & Weapons Pak3 in Aug

    I didn't see a thread about this news item, so thought I'd start one. This was posted by JVS3:

    begin quote: Scott Neitlich sent over the following info. :-)

    With the reveal of the new MOTUC at Toy Fair, here is the current release schedule for 2012 at Matty Collector! Keep in mind that this schedule is subject to change and Mattel advises customers should expect many changes as the year goes on. Also, reissues are all remaining stock of either an existing first release, second release or customer service stock. None are "new" production.

    March:
    Kobra Kahn
    Various reissues TBA

    April:
    Thunder Punch He-Man with mini comic # 1
    Draego-Man
    Various reissues TBA

    May:
    Slush Head
    Stinkor
    The Mighty Spector (pending, may move if schedule slips)
    Snake Mountain Stands
    Various reissues TBA

    June:
    Horde Prime
    Snake Man-At-Arm
    Griffin
    Various reissues TBA

    July:
    Spikor
    Various reissues TBA

    August:
    Sir Laser Lot
    Snake Men 2-Pack
    Weapon Pak #3
    Various reissues TBA
    SDCC Figure

    September:
    Frosta
    Monthly figures TBA
    Various reissues TBA
    - end quote

    There are no monthly figures in several months (April and August), there are no new reissues being produced, Spikor is in there twice (although the first one has to be Stinkor), and Spector is listed in May, but "might be moved to May." It doesn't give me hope that Mattel's QC is improving when the official release schedule has at least 2 errors in it. I guess we won't be caught up by July, and are being told to expect many changes during the year. I think disorganization and getting by by the skin of our teeth is now status quo for this line.

    I hope no subscribers need to live according to a monthly budget. If you do, good luck! Sheeesh.

    Yes, it has already been announced that April and August would have no monthly figures but May and September would have two. The only thing surprising me is the Snake Men are supposed to be in July with Spikor.

    Yes, I read in the pics from NYTF that the Snake Warriors are supposed to be in July. I would LOVE if they were in August, since there is only the one 30th Anniversary figure.

    Glad to know the Weapons Pack is in August too! August is my birthday month, so having a little extra will be nice

    Depends on which weapons will be repainted in which colors. Need that magenta stuff dammit!

    I actually kind of wish that they would push back the Snake Mountain stands to be released at the same time as the new weapons pack.

    While I'm glad that we have a sub now that includes most of the items, the thing that stinks is that when single small items like this are sold outside of the sub, then we end up paying $9 or more in shipping on items that cost $10-$15. At least if I were already ordering a figure or beast and could put a set of stands or a weapons pack in the same order, it wouldn't seem so bad. Granted, yes, it is FAR better to have combined shipping on the other items during the rest of the year and all of that, but if we are going to get a couple of these (when compared to the figures) small 'piddly' items over the course of a year, at least release them together to make it not seem as bad shipping-wise.

    Do you buy the SM stands extra or do they come with any of the subs?

    I would love if the Snake men do come out with the weapons pack, as I want to buy an extra snake men pack so that with the weapons will save me a few bucks on shipping... that's a good call I think! March is such a lonely month, isn't weird that getting ONE figure a month is a rarity now?
    I will NEVER believe that Mermista beheaded Mer-Man! You sit on a throne of lies.... and smell of beef and cheese, bio writer!!!!

    As of now, the Snake Men 2 pack is coming in Aug. But expect changes as we get closer to each month.

    No, but I would assume, that the price point would be around 30$.

    Awww, the title of the thread made me think a 'new item', like a figure or something, had been added to the release schedule.

    While I like everything coming, I think February is the top month and will go unbeaten for the rest of the year. Unfair advantage though with sub exclusive Shadow Weaver in it. Fisto and Sorceress might still take it even if you exempt Shadow Weaver though!

    Looking forward to the month brought to you by the letter "S" with Slush-Head, Stinkor, and Spector.

    Cool!!! Thank you! I think this is good - it can sort of function as the monthly figure for August then.

    Isn't TG even the least bit concerned that people who want multiples of the Snakemen pack may skip the re-issue of the Windraider in order to buy more of the Snakemen in August?

    I figured Mattel wants the WR to fail so they can say WE TOLD YOU SO.

    Heck my birth month is light on figures after all the changes. Only MOTUC goodness is the orignal Snake Man Korba Khan. Still wish they will light up June some @ 2 figuers, 1 beast and the Voltron Matty will be hitting bank account hard that month.
