  • Loo-Kee and Kowl 2 pack: Who's going to buy these?

    Anyone else think that $20 for 2 happy meal toys is a little ridiculous? After taxes and shipping, a repaint and little clown with 3 points of articulation will be around $30 or more. The package is light, but I don't think that matters. I want these, but I feel like I'm getting screwed with them. Discuss.

    Man, they are going to piss people off like they did with SOH, but at least SOH was an actual $25 figure....these two things alone as light as they are will not justify the $11 to have the damn things shipped. $20....man, I want that Kowl, but screw $20 plus $11 for something that's not even close to a pound.

    DR's flat rate shipping is total bull****, and a serious rip off.... How are you going to charge $11 for something that weighs just a few ounces more than a damn Hot Wheel? That I can personally ship for $3.... I get it's a bigger box, but the weight is more what would be looked at....$7 at max to ship Kowl and Lookie....no more.

      I may just wait until the end of the year, Black Friday or whatever Early Access they pop up with, when I can order more things to go with them, to justify the shipping.

    A big pass for me... I don't even like Orko!

      A big pass for me. Sorry to those that want 'em, but for my own selfish reasons I'm glad they're not part of the sub. Now I don't have to bother reselling them, or worry that something I actually want is the 'chase' item....... "thrill of the chase" FU Scott!

        Even though I am a POP fan, these are a pass. The cost is not worth it nor the headache of the "chase" My toy color Kowl will serve his purpose just fine.

          I would have liked to own them. They're cute and I liked both of them as a kid, but $20 + shipping for this? No thanks.

            It seems once again that Matty's "wonderful marketing tactics" will cause a big disappointment...

              Completist so yes. Pretty annoyed that this doesn't also include Imp. What a wasted opportunity.

                Oh, I'm sure we will be seeing an Imp and Odiphus two-pack some day.

                $20 is a lot for these two little figures. I feel like they need to slip in at least one smaller accesory, like a Filmation amulet that can be used with one of the regular figures.

                  It's a 'deal' compared to $30 for Mr. Mxyzptlk and a C&C piece.... lol

                I'm looking forward to picking these up. At least they'll initially be available in April's early access so those of us who want these will have some idea of when to be able to purchase them. The concept of chase figures is ridiculous. Like people have nothing better to do than to be on MattyCollector or Facebook all day, keeping watch with no idea of when these things will be put up for sale.

                  It's Neitlich's subtle way of punishing and trolling fans who opted not to get the sub.

                  I don't doubt that for a second, although Nutlick's methods aren't so subtle anymore now that we can call him out on them. He's way beyond obvious at this point.

                It is a lot for 2 little figures, one of which is a repaint. That's why I think we should be getting Imp too, and it should be the price of 1 regular figure.

                  I'm a little flustered with them being a chase figure but I have every intention of trying to get them. I need a FILMation Kowl for my Great Rebellion shelf and while Loo-Kee to me is just a Keebler reject he was a part of the vintage series and I'll do with him what I did with him in my vintage collection and that is hide him so people have to look for him.

                    I have to say its a dickish move on mattels part putting these in early access in april when the people most likely to buy them are those who subscribed to club etheria which doesn't start until july!

                      That's true... They probably assume that POP subbers MUST have the regular sub too, arrogant presumption.

                    Chase figures are just a bad idea. Of course, Lookee was a figure bound to draw LIEguru's evil intentions... it was SO tempting to make Lookee a "concealed" figure. Nevertheless, this also means that not every fan will be able to buy him... and that those who want to buy him may have to spend more money than they should have spent.

                      For $20, we should be getting a third figure in the package. They should have included a twigget at least.

                            I wish one of Pixel Dan's buddies would find out if he's having a lovers quarrel with Neitlich or something, and post the info... I'm more concerned with the drama if any than the actual reviews. Not because I like drama... but because it will no doubt continue to prove that Lie-Or is the evil master of prickness.

                              From what Pixel Dan and TG said in the recent interview vid he posted, it sounds like the shipment of figures never reached Dan, TG seemed offended PD hadn't posted any of the new figs sent.

                              They may have genuinely been lost in the mail, but having watched the video, I suspect that TG was lying to Dan. I now own Glimmer, and she isn't a bad looking figure (could have been better). That said, if TG was worried that Dan might give her a bad review, I could see him holding off on sending her. The man lies all the time, and it wouldn't be the first time he held something back from the fans to ensure sales.

                            I don't care about any drama, it's just one of those things that make a person go "hmm". Mind you, the current brand manager seems to be a very toxic person who has done a lot of damage to people's relationships and careers over this line, and even though I don't care for his reviews, I hope he hasn't done anything actually harmful to Dan.

                            But that is also, ultimately, not my business.

                              From what I understand, Pixel Dan has a new baby at home.

                                Which is in no way a good enough excuse for him not doing videos. And he's actually released TONS of videos AFTER his son was born (very recently too), so the "Pixel Dan is now a dad" argument doesn't stand a chance... The weird thing is that MOTUC previews are the only ones that he didn't post yet.

                                Exactly. Tons of new videos, no MOTUC. Scooter and Dan have had a major falling out.

                                Maybe I should just have 'sucker' branded to my head, but if I can get them, yeah, sure, why not? Classic characters from the cartoon and I'm in for POP as of today. Might as well. But yes, $20 plus shipping and handling? Should be more like $15 including the S&H for as small as they are.

                                  I wonder how much these TINY figures will sell for on the secondary market, after they "sold out" at Matty's...

                                    Hard to do worse than Teela. There is no reason, none, that she should not have gotten another release based on the demand and insane prices she is demanding. But that's another argument for another thread.
