LOL! So glad I don't want this f'n figure... So tired of the, "now you see it, now you don't" games. Toyguru needs a prompt beat down.

I really wonder about Matty's logic sometimes:
like how this chase figure is being offered during peak hours of normal human function (i.e. during work hours and Saturday night).

It's like they've geared this figure for unemployed agoraphobes.

I will say this, at least it was up much longer this time. If it truly keeps popping up like that all year, I have no doubt everyone who wants one will get one.

I dont know. I believe he was up longer because not everyone knew about it. Once the news hit facebook and all the other well known places, he was allready gone.

Exactly, It doesn't take much for Neitlich or whoever is running the sale page to keep an eye on the forums to see who's talking about it... soon as word gets out they pull the plug.

As soon as I caught wind of it, he was already removed from the site with a dickish, "Your too late" message. Again, I'm not interested in the figure, but I like to witness Mattel's continuing effort to piss off the people who keep the line alive. Fans have already made it loud and clear that they don't want to chase after these figures... but Mattel continues to do it to stir the pot.

I think they have a number like sell 200 or 300 figures per sale and then they pull the plug. I hope that everyone who wants one gets one.

I'll bet they don't even go by how many they sell. I think they just take him off the site when ever they feel like it. Creating buzz seems like the main objective with these shenanigans.

Careful! Talking bad about TG might get another thread locked :rolleyes:

I think there's a difference between taking a jab at TG/Matty and careening a thread into the ravine on a 'f- TG' Eiffel Tower between you and mega.

Well, I saw no reason to close the thread completely. Perhaps a friendly request for us Neitlich haters to tone it down a bit would have sufficed. I do go a bit overboard with the Scott bashing... I need to work on that.

Whatever Joerhyno, You clearly have a hard on for me, not sure why but... If I have offended you in any way, get over it. No need to start acting like Val from the org.

I have no problems with you personally Mega, you have the right to post your frustrations, but please lets keep the stuff like name calling out of it. Even if they might not be members here, I don't think its right to call someone a name. Knock stuff like that off and everything should be fine. We cool?

I see your point. Calling people names does go beyond the point of simply expressing ones dislike for someone. I can agree to no name calling... but with your permission, His name will undoubtedly come up again by me in the future, and I'm pretty sure it will be 99.9% negative... but name calling I can refrain from.

I just read that our friend Scott said fans thought it was "thrilling" trying to get Spirit of Hordak.

Seriously.

Now that has to be the biggest load of BS I ever heard...

Who are these fans that enjoy this besides the "small but vocal" fanbase at He-Man.org?

No, no, I've just confirmed with Roger's Thesaurus that "thrilling" is now an acceptable synonym for "annoying."

You know as well as I do that he lives in his own little world. In that world, whatever he likes he thinks everyone else does too. I guess megalomania causes delusions of grandeur.
