They had highly desired sub exclusive figures this past year too. At this point, it's not really a stunt. It's just the way things are.


I disagree. It is a stunt. They announce when there is just a few days left for the subscription that one of the most interesting and anticipated figures that hadn't been made yet is not going to be available on day of sale. It is a scare tactic plain and simple. Just like them announcing that if subs go through for DC that Damien Wayne will be made. Mattel knows that Two-Bad is a highly desired figure and will sell, so why else would they do that other than to get subscribers. I mean seriously, in all logic who would ever think that making more figures than there are subscribers for someone like Castaspella, who still hasn't sold out as of today, than Two-Bad. It is just another ploy. Really? you are going to make enough of Castaspella to have day of sale, but not Clamp Champ or Two-Bad? They are just trying to scare people into subs. Oh well, I will just wait until Cyber Monday and pick up the few that I still want. And if they aren't available oh well.

And he sub doesn't got through we'll most likely still get Two-Bad as a day of sale item.

The original charge probably includes your sign up fee, the shipping for your first order and the figures that will be shipped. It'll drop off to 25 later.

It's the total for your first shipment in March

Sign up fee
Jan fee
Feb fee
Mar fee
Mar Quarterly Figure fee
Shipping

Now, I don't think they'll be hitting you up for all of that at once, but this is the first time they've had the quarterly option so who knows.

Think that's bad? Mine came to $360! :shock:

2 DCIE subs and 1 MOTUC sub.

Thats what I figured-- I just didnt want them to charge me that much right now-- I wasnt sure if Matty/DR corrected the intial subscription fee issues yet--

I am calling it. MOTUC makes it, but GB and DCIE do not.

Guess we'll know soon enough.

Excellent! This will be my second year with a sub. I'd like to see the Filmation sub again next year or a New Adventures or Princess of Power themed sub.

I don't expect an NA sub would do so well that this point. The only figure people really seem to be clamouring for is NA Skeletor, who I suspect will be held off until 2015, along with a couple of key She-Ra characters. I wish it wasn't that way: it would be great to see Mattel stop trying to spread out characters from those factions but...I'm guessing based on experience.

I'm glad the line will continue as we're now finally seeing some more She-Ra characters...but it's going to be a frustrating wait to see just HOW MANY make it to production this year.

Dying for a Cat in Cat Form. Panthor really can't be customized into that, and she deserves to finally have her purple panthor version in plastic (possibly coupled with Filmation Kowl or Imp or LooKee?)

I believe Shellhead entered a timewarp into the 90's (and an alternate universe 90's at that)

One where Thurman Thomas can actually be smart enough to remember where he put his helmet... and the NFC not playing " I can score more than you did against them last year " ...

That universe was at least two Crisises ago. In the New 52, the Buffalo Bills have 15 Superbowl wins, the team is owned by Arthur Curry, and all the cheerleaders are sexy smart redheads that like to dress up in a bat motif.

:twisted:
