Did anyone get the stands the last time they were offered? I was wondering whether they were worth getting.

I bought a pack last time and I hope I can get a *bunch* this time. They're nice and I do like them but they do take up a lot of space (they're about 4" square) and could stand to have five more pegs included since the figures seem to work better with both feet pegged. The wall isn't much to talk about since it's very small compared to the figures and it's the same piece times five and there's only one peg hole in the center to attach it with (there should've been three options instead of the one). I think that the stand could've used a few more pegging options, too. Would've been nice to have had a space where the flight stands for Orko and the Doom Seeker could've "plugged" into them. Hoping the next enviroment stand fixes a few of those problems.

It seems that only 1/3 of the Goddesses were made with defective materials. Mine has been fine. In fact, she fell off the the shelf this past weekend, and she survived in and is still intact.

Gah!... Reading this reminded me that I'd meant to come back and post more... Yeah, some of the Goddesses may be defective, but considering how slow she sold when "new" I'm not sure that she'll ever get a re-release to "correct" the problem...

I am not too familiar with the MOTUC line and was wondering what it meant when future figure releases have "club" next to them.

I was able to trade for Roboto and Chief Carnivus over at rebelscum. They look like great figures, really looking forward to getting them.

"Club" means that the figure/item is part of the subscription and is automatically sent to subscribers.

They are. I'm hooked on this line and I have no connection to the vintage toys (always thought they were lame, though I did love the cartoon). If you really like what you get, I recommend getting the sub in July as it will be a lot less painful than dealing with Matty every month and you shouldn't have much trouble getting rid of anything you don't want. If you've got another collector or two nearby, combine your subs and you can save a bundle on shipping.

Thanks for the info Jim. How do I go about doing this?

2011 Subscriptions are no longer available. 2012 subscriptions will likely go on sale around SDCC-time.

But this link should give you an idea as to how they work:

So, my Vikor arrived today. Very cool figure and a contender for one of my favorites in the line! I really dig him and his Conan-like vibe.

I guess I never noticed in pics, but he's got real metal chains hanging off his wrist bands. Nice detail there.

Very happy with this guy!

Thanks for the info Jeff, I really appreciate it. This is something I definitely consider for 2012, it just depends how well 2011 goes on the sale days.

Fortunately, there is a member at rebelscum who has been able to hook me up with a few of the past releases. I'm looking to get some more MOTUC figures off him in the future.

I wonder what kind of "special friend" Bow is to She-Ra. Enquiring minds want to know :lol:.
