Cool. Let me know by nine if you change your mind. Same for you Obelix if you're about.

I picked up Stratos as well. Was considering captain glenn, mer-man and prince adam but I prefer the other version of mer-man and Prince adam should really have the other head.

I'd like to get him when he comes out. Its looking like it'll be subscription only, but then I take anything a toy corp says with a pinch of salt. Some of the people on the he man org forum. suspect that one of the reasons that they're in this position of subscription only from now on, is because mattel made mistakes with the line by not making enough of certain figures such as sorcerass (spelling) and making far too many of tytus and skeletor/mo-larr sets.

They could be right & Mattel are going to lose out on sales because they keep up with the scare tactics:

Personally I think the way they are handling the line they will end up killing it.

There was a toy guru video on there the other day which was basically begging the fans to subscribe.

Neca and diamond select have able to get their products in to stores for years and at fairly reasonable prices without all this bollocks. Admittedly their stuff isn't as exciting and at times not very well made, but least its obtainable. I don't see how a bigger company like mattel could possibly not follow the same business plan.

He's now changed the story saying if they don't meet the minimum there could be less figures next year at around $30-35 per figure.

It's about maximising profits while minimizing expenditure in order to keep the shareholders happy or some bs like that Laughing

What a cunt. I'm going to refer to him as TOY GIMP from now on in uppercase letters. That's how angry I am Laughing

Anyway in better news I scored Skeletor from that auction you found. It ended at £16 something. Thanks for that

The guy is talking out of his arse. The toy companies seem to be the only companies whacking up their pirces to cover for the declining sales. Sure materials used to make figs have gone up but for a fucking figure to go from £7 to £18 in just a matter of 5 years is fucking ridiculous. Low price = sales every fucker knows that. Dr Who products are nowhere near that price and they can't use the licensing as an excuse for the costs either.
Isn't this why the retailers are reluctant to buy stock? I might be wrong Laughing

That & retailers aren't interested in lines that don't have a media tie-in, not that it would help with Mattels inability to handle lines that do have a media tie-in.

I can't think if the correct adjective for the category that barbie and hot wheels type toys fit in to but that kind of stuff is always on the shelves. But yeah something like he-man does need a tie-in.

Hordak and Man-at-arms arrived today. Both are awesome especially Hordak. I loved that figure as a kid, I have no idea why Laughing

They are evergreens (they've both been around since the 50's/60's), Hot Wheels is a cheap pocket money line & girls lines are a different kettle of fish to male orientated lines.

Grizzlor needs vajazzling. Laughing

It looks like Universal Playback has picked up the distribution rights to He-man & the MotU hopefully this means we could see season 2 on DVD. Cool

Do you know if that's the broadcast list as they were shown here? Cos the episode guide on wiki is 65 x episodes for season 1. Here

I got Fisto, Stratos and queen marlena in the post today, all are awesome.

I don't think so, I'm pretty sure we got it in the order on wiki (based on the contender releases & not my memory Laughing ) & it also doesn't look to me like a complete listing on the bbfc site.

How are the wings on your Stratos are they stuck in place, or do they rotate?

heh Fisto Laughing
