And since this will be the first time I've broken my completionist streak with MOTUC, all of the sudden subbing in 2015 doesn't seem like such a priority anymore.
I'm done. After Scorpia, Madame Razz, and Light Hope, I'll pretty much have everything out of MOTUC that I wanted. Time to stop spending $40 a pop on figures that I don't want or ones that are horribly flawed, lazy, or pointless.

The notion that, in a free-market economy, a buyer-base can simply walk away from something they no longer find adequately desirable has never entered their minds.
That whole "you get what you get, and you don't throw a fit" only applies to thinks like presents, freebies, and supper. If you're spending ~$40 a figure (soon to go up), you're more than entitled to say, "wait a minute - I don't like this. It's not what I wanted. I'm not buying it."
The fact that there are people who want you to shut up, buy it, and keep buying just so the line will be complete are selfish morons and worse, contributing and enabling Neitlich to continue to make these bone-headed decisions.
If you can act with absolute impunity, why would you ever change your behaviour?
I don't want the line to end, per se, but I do want there to finally be some measure of consequence for Matty & Co. for yet another, in a long line this year, bad decision. I'm doing my part by voting with my wallet. I'm not enabling or rewarding Neitlich's positively stupid and out-of-touch design choices. If the line dies, oh well.
It won't be because of this fan or any collection of fans doing the same.
