        wasn't that supposed to be a sub figure?

        The WTF figure is from the Classics line, so the worst is yet to come.

      Huh, looks like TG has had his own toddler issues too, and he just keeps reflecting them on this Classic line!... Everyone should send him a ducky as a thank you!

            I consider myself a true MOTU fan, as for the "C" part... maybe not, but I don't care.

            I'm not a true MotUC fan, even though I have over 300 Fking figures. Nutlick can suckle on my balls.

          Well that's saved me $35 and shipping, seriously with all the possible stuff they could make this is what mattel come up with?!

            So this the $35 distraction that Scott Neitlich hoped would get us all to stop talking about Filmation Hordak and Imp.

            I wake up to the fb motu community going ape shit and think gee what has Scott said now and then I see this. It's dumb it's stupid and it's nothing the fans want. But the biggest insult is $35 for that are you having a bloody laugh. I don't care what anyone says this has been done to piss people off plain and simple I hope it bombs and bombs hard

              The more we complain, the more successful this if "this has been done to piss people off. I too hope it bombs, which is why I'm not going to play the enraged fanboy game that Scott LOVES to play.

            "Hello MOTUC fans, I'm ToyScrewyou Nutslick and this is my new addition to the world of MOTU! Its an awesome Skeletor variant I've dubbed Oops! I Shit My Diaper Skeletor! It is my latest love letter to the fans!

            My bestest friends ever in the marketing department have done the research, heard your cries, and given you what you asked for. You can come to He-Man.org and tell me how much you love me, and tune into the next RGD to hear more about Oops! I Shit My Diaper Skeletor.

            And rest assured, the rumors are true, this awesome quick to sell out idea of mine that all you true fans will love, will be followed by Oops! I Spit Up on Myself He-Man!"


            New life goal. Get a job at Mattel. Break into warehouse where all these abortions are stored. Melt them down into a giant blackened ball of plastic. Shape it into a giant curled turd and leave it on Nutslicks desk, with a love letter, from this fan.

            That's all I have to say about this. I'm out.

            What a piece of garbage... they can't seem to give us a proper Filmation head for Filmation Hordak, but they can waste time and resources in a crap like this... what a bunch of imbeciles...

            Now don't get me wrong, this would've been a cool extra if, and only if, there haven't been a FAILmation Hordak, Double "Chin" Trouble, "reversed shoulders" IG Skeletor or bloated skin/armor and crappy leotards... the point is, they keep screwing up with the main line, making excuses, and instead of solving those problems they waste their time putting out stuff no one has asked for.

              If you don't think that Scott Neitlich is trolling his own customers, I shit my diaper Skeletor will change your mind.

              I love how people say, "don't worry, it came from a different budget, from Robot Chicken, so stop crying.". We don't know that. I bet that is where the new money for a new Filmation Hordak head went.

                Seriously, TG sees the line with different eyes than the customers do. I'm not a conspiracy theorist or anything, but sometimes, I really question whether the line was ever in trouble at all or if it was just hype to sell more subscriptions, if Mattel lacks the whole "gotta make every choice count mentality" that the fans have. With us, this is our last chance--with Mattel, they have plenty of time to get things out there. You would think that something like this would be off the table while the fans are so unsure about the future of the line.

                That is just rediculus...
                Even this is not out of the budget for motuc stuff, I bet there are many Ideas that would be cool
                and fun and not just silly that would still appeal to a wider range of customers.
                I mean this is clearly not aiming on the already buying motu fan,
                I guess it was meant to be for nerdy-retroloving-hipster guys to get in touch with the brand again.

                so instead to spend the money on something clever to do the job, they spend it on tg....and that baby skeletor.

                what bad isn´t the money that was spended, but the time and energy that was wasted on that product.
                instead of concentrating on delivering a good job with the stuff that is already sold,
                they splitted their focus and gave us more reversed shoulders, bulky armoury, stupid arms and the usual shit
                and on top this baby...

                  Just left that manure eating org site. Im amazed at doorman and his Pinocchio brown nosing along with the other toygurites. This stupid baby concept that was put together just like robot chicken would put it together is the most insulting thing that nutsack could ever devise. What the hell is that guy thinking. Just cuz he is a recent father doesnt mean he has to push that crap on us. What toy company does that. This item is for true motu fans!! This garbage baby skel is a great shot at telling us what he really wants to say. Maybe hes really telling us we act like baby's and so now we get one. Whats even more frustrating is that scott doesnt have the balls to address any of the current issues on any forum. He hides from us and pumps out this garbage. Ive figured that Val stopped with the gooble because of these issues. The best thing for me is that im 100% convinced not to sub again. After this year im out and done.

                    I seriously can't even believe how much of a moron Scooter is. I mean I knew he was stupid, but this really takes the cake. He was talking about this as a "big surprise" and a "must have" item that would sell out during EA. This may be true if they have only made 5 of them, but who in their right mind would actually think this would appeal to people who are interested in action figures? This is HANDS DOWN the stupidest idea Scooter has ever attempted to ram down the throats of the MOTU community, and there has been a long, long list of very stupid ideas. Truly unbelievable.

                    If anyone was clinging on to the idea that this imbecile could be trusted to do right by the MOTU brand, hopefully this will finally wake you up to the reality that all this guy wants to do is troll the community and drive the MOTU brand into the ground. What an utter and complete farce. I'm disgusted, absolutely and completely disgusted.

                        Well that doll is just plain stupid and disturbingly ugly. What if this is a bad omen of what is yet to come such a whole subscription were you can get baby versions of all MOTU characters with exclusive diapers pack. Or even better how about exclusive toilet paper with motuc insignia on it. Toy Guru's ideas are stupid as they come. Just when you think he could not offer something even more grotesque he comes out with a new crap.

                            Who was asking for this product to be made? I've seen people asking for a She-ra Barbie doll and even a baby he-man and battlecat would have been at least cute. This thing is disturbing, it resembles a dead baby. My friends already think I'm nuts for spending so much on MOTUC, if they ever saw this thing in my house they would probably have me locked up for my own good.

                              A follow up set to the POP Polly Pockets from 2011 would've been a much better idea, especially considering its She-Ra's 30th

                            Here is where the majority of the parts for this "figure" are apparently coming from.

                            I find it interesting that the doll that these parts originate from sells for only $14.99...

                              The issue with this thing is not about the available budget for it or if the customers are forced to buy it or not... the problem is that ***guru didn't think the fans would want a Filmation Hordak with a proper head and accessories, but at the same time he thought this doll thing would be a good idea. The problem is that the guy is simply clueless about what people want, despite being an auto-proclaimed huge fan (!?), and that's the same guy who's practically in charge of the whole MOTU brand. No wonder we still get reversed shoulders and things like that, the priorities are all messed up...

                                I think he's very well aware of what the fans really want, but he's so disgustingly arrogant and only wants to do the things that are in his diaper head!... The guy has psychological issues on many levels!
