YES! I can safely pass on the MOTUC exclusive this year.

I was very afraid it'd be Modulok. :D

They look great. I'm psyched to get these, even better, it knocks two more characters off of the vintage checklist!! Hopefully now we'll see the likes of Glimmer or Madame Razz soon! 8)

We'll be waiting for Glimmer until the end of time, I'm sure. But, like Shellhead, I'm also happy to be able to pass on the SDCC exclusive. I hate it when they make She-Ra things exclusives and harder to get.

I echo the sentiments of most here, in that I'm glad these are exclusives. If they were the sub I'd be pissed. Not a fan of these two characters at all.

Not that I really wanted them-- but would have preferred them in the sub last year instead of Procrustus-- (that waste of 40.00)

I'm glad these two figures are being made and that they are exclusives. I'm excited for them since they are in the original line (as much as I like getting new character figures). I just wish they had included the female rock-person as well.

Mini Masters!!!! At last!!

This is, for me, the single most exciting Comic Con announcement from Mattel. Heck, it's the most exciting thing from Mattel for me in a LONG time...!

I. Want. These.

Of course, I won't be at Comic Con and will have to take my chances on Matty...

I might agree-- now I just need to see the price tag first--- My guess is 20.00--

Once again-- stop with the overpackaging on all the damn exclusives Mattel.

Agree. Agree. Agree.

I'd be perfectly fine with a polybag and a lil' white mailer box like the mailaways of old.

Ive wanted these since they showed them two years ago. Now Im just wondering how they are going to get the rest of them out to us. I am super super pumped for this. After sitting thru their offerings all week, it finally paid off with this announcement.

Jeff, if you really are in Portland, I just became your new best friend.

I'm glad to see these are finally coming out. However, I wish we could JUST ONCE not get cheated out of appropriately tooled parts because Toyguru wants to cut costs. It's more important that I have the best figures possible than Neitlich getting an "atta boy" for showing Mattel that he saves them money, thus allowing him to get a substantial bonus check every year. SCUMBAG!

Or he's told by Mattel brass that they have X amount of money to spend on the exclusive, so he's not so much looking for an "atta boy," as he is listening to the instructions that he's been given.

As someone whose manager is an executive at a rather large financial institution, I can tell you that I'd much rather not get in trouble with him/her than get a pat on the back.

So were any of you able to order the "super-secret" Spirit of Hordak figure? Was able to get one but he was gone very quickly.
Quote:
Congratulations! By magic or by luck, you’ve found a secret figure! Now you see him… but this master of manipulation can disappear at any moment so act quickly!

This all-clear figure features painted red eyes, chest emblem and removable armband, and comes with a fan-demanded Hordak® cross bow in vintage white. Trust us, this visitor from the dark dimension is up to no good… but you’ll have to get the figure to see his complete bio. Straight from the 2013 mini-comic, “The Secret Origin of Skeletor,” this highly collectable figure is not available with Club Eternia® subscriptions or even during regular monthly sales

Apparently VeeBee and one other member of the Fwoosh got in/out in time. As well as a series of scalpers http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0&_nkw=spirit+hordak&_sacat=0&_from=R40

I know we all know how to run Mattel better than the ones they employ, But how does this benefit anyone? Why not engage social media to stealth promote the sale? Instead, you get this written all over your public Fbook wall:

Not a small toy forum, not a small toy podcast, this is pure venom all over your brand.

Seriously? What the heck is this? I'm all for random limited sales of stuff but it would at least be nice if we knew it was coming.
