    I've just decided not to subscribe anymore, after seeing how Mattel is still pulling their BS on us! I think I'd rather pay the secondary market prices for the figurers or items that are exclusives to the subs and cherry pick the rest... I'd be better off if I deal less with Mattel and Digital River.

    yup, but mentioning that they could at least make Beastman look like he's not wearing spandex by reusing parts of the furry buck can be dangerous in some places...

    The Fwoosh got some official images and first look proto images from The Four Horsemen - Clicky. General Sunder looks...thick.

    Twistoid and Rotar show up Monday the 27th.

    No news on the Filmation subscription, but I expect early August--just as Collector's Choice is tailing off or just after it ends.

    EDIT: Turns out the Filmation sub will open in October.

    teemu--Not my choice either, but I have to say that with the possible exception of Vultak, I've seen all of them show up repeatedly on fan request lists. And three of them are runners-up from the fan votes.

    Believe me, I'm not a big fan of everything there either, but Dispara, Night-Stalker, Horde Wraith and Tuskador are the ones that I'm after basically...

    doing the opposite...most of the "collectors choice" certainly wasn't my choice

    Well the legal department may have suggested they play it safe and only reveal what was already definitely in the pipeline, but it would be just that: a suggestion. It's not like they are actual law enforcement. Some stuff like safety regulations you should definitely follow them on (don't give blade actual blades is probably a really good suggestion) the other stuff is not so important and it's more or less to avoid frivolous lawsuits. I used to work in the art department for a toy company so I'm pretty familiar with how most of this stuff works (although Mattel could be quite different). Toyguru exaggerated and flat out lied about a lot of things.

    I was really pleased with this years SDCC showing. I like that they are continuing with fan demanded characters in the classics packaging, and I'm happy with the selection of characters they've chosen. Snake Mountain looks amazing, but my wallet is already sobbing openly. The price drop and the smaller subscription is very welcome. Having two mini subs instead of one big one was a great move and I think they will see subscription numbers rise dramatically because people aren't locked into buying every figure. The Filmation variant line is an easy pass for me, but there is still so much stuff I'm interested in and I'm very happy I'm not being forced to buy a bunch of Filmation stuff I have no interest in. Also letting us know everything we are buying up front! What a bizarre idea?! It's as if a huge source of unethical business practices is no longer involved...

    When will the Filmation sub go on sale?

    Also when are Twistoid and Rotar going to be available?

    Ecstatic over the Filmation sub. I only wish it was bigger! Wow, those colors pop! Those faces so expressive! Glad I kept fairly restrained with MOTUC, because I might be going whole hog with this Filmation line!

    I felt they same a bit as well; if not bare legs, her should have had the furry shorts as a nod. And what's up with the M on the buckle? As for the head: thankfully I'm not a fan of the Laser Light fig's so that head will be my Dare one until the possibility of the Filmation head version coming in another head pack or offering.

    I wondered if he'd do that. Actually I was pretty certain he would.

    The collectors choice looks cool , loving DarIus's head, but the red beast man it a bit of a repaint letdown , they could have at least given him a new head

  • zombihamma
    replied
    Awesome all round, but dare should have had bear legs, and what's with the same head as his dad, man talk about cheap , he really needed a new noggin, ( maybe I'll take the filmation he-man head, and resculpt the hair )

    Well not only do I love both sub options but also knowing in advance everything that's coming next year (gee I guess Mattel Legal had a change in policy). I was totally on the fence, prior to this panel, now I'm just going to give them my wallet. I also let the wife know I was buying a Bluetooth speaker, hehehe.
