Oh give me a break...Owe it all to Toyguru.

The man has been nothing but a bane on this line from the get go.

You Matty apologists need to open your eyes and see this was all a scam from the Anti-Christ of brand managers.

Next you'll be trying to get an autograph from him...you sell-out.

Over at the .org, they've all come out to praise him.

"Scott,I just wanted to take a minute and tell you thanks for the roller coaster ride that the last 6 years has been. No matter how much crap people gave you or what you were called you always kept your Heart and Soul in this line. A lesser man might have just given the middle finger to the computer screen and walked away. You, my friend are a class act. I can't think of any other person that would stick his neck out from any other brand or toy company. I am sure it hasn't been an easy ride for you at times between the front office and the fan community.

I will love, cherish, and share this line with my 4 children for all my remaining years. You've made He-Man cool to at least my 4 growing nerds. Posted Image

As pathetic as they are, I'm glad they are stupid enough to buy extra subs because Darth Neitlich uses his mind tricks on them. Any extra subs can't be a bad thing, it's money in Mattel's pocket. Just glad we have another year of figures and hope this is REALLY the last year for classics with all the vintage figures being released. Right now that is my only concern, getting the remaining vintage in 2015, and not have to get any in 2016.

I'm glad you guys got more figures going for 2015. I see some complainers about the $30 per figure but hey you are paying for GREAT quality action figures. I hope one day I can get a Beast Man figure at fair price and not the Over the top prices I saw it at Ebay.

I think in a few years when some fans get tired of their MOTUC collection, they will sell them off --- That will be the time to keep an eye out to fill in the holes.

That ALWAYS happens...

I sold my MOTU, Rambo, Visionaries and COPS collections and I'm missing them so I started buying some of the MOTU again and COPS.

My GI JOE collection is the one that I still keep and add some missing figures...

I cant imagine someone selling off their collection especially with what they gone through with Matty and DR...

They might be people like myself that finally snap out of the "completionist" mentality for the line a decide to keep only a select few.
I doubt you're going to see an huge influx of Sorceress/Teela/Fisto toys on the market, though.

I think next month, I'm chucking my Granamyr, Jetsled, and Windraider up on eBay. If I haven't opened them by now, I'm never going to.

It is hilarious how people are so worried about the figures not being made if the min had not been met. One would think people would have learned that regardless of the subs hitting the minimum or not, the line will still continue - it has happened with all the other lines that died. The Ghostbusters and DCUC lines are great examples. I take it that all the figures they've made and shown are going to be made since they have already spent a lot of money in them or do not need to spend a lot. A lot of Mattel figures use the bulk bod with a new head or whatever. For instance, Mattel can just spend money on new tooling for a 200x Skeletor figure.

Although companies have in the past cancelled figures up right, both Hasbro and Mattel as of recent seem to rearrange their figures in different sub-lines or exclusives. Perhaps the figures shown are way into the development and couldn't be cancelled. Regardless, only giant figures or playsets that uses new tooling like the Etco-1 hasn't been made and for obvious reasons - they didn't want to start production of it until they have enough preorders since they don't have any recycled toolings for it. On the other hand, Doomsday can be produced easily since they just need to make a few new toolings for the figure. I think whatever figures they have planned that they have not announced yet (since they haven't start developing the figures yet) would have been cancelled if the goal wasn't met.

LOL Those are classic examples of toy groupies. Notice how everyone one of those praises call Scott a friend. Scott is just doing business, not agreeing to give them his liver. I haven't seen such folks since the SOTA days. LOL

Their sculpts weren't that great. Aside from their great-looking chisel-faced and monstrous figures, their smooth-faced characters like Ryu, Ken, Chun-li, Cammy, and Sakura were awful. Under the PCS brand, they've gotten better since with the Ryu and Ken faces.

But to keep things in topic, back when SOTA was big, people kissed Jerry's ass like they are kissing Scott's ass now. There were a lot of TNI regular idiots here that kissed Jerry's ass here. None that I recall still post at TNI, but they were here kissing his ass. I've heard Jerry's ego mellow down since his Sota days, which is great. Perhaps Scott will mellow down once MOTUC is over - Like Jerry with Street Fighter, most of the contribution to Scott's ego is possibly because of the MOTUC line. I think even Aaron Archer of Transformers fame developed an inflated ego when he was posting on the TFw2005 forums a decade ago. One would think that having a big wig as a PR person for a line of toys is a big no-no considering that not only their egos get inflated, but they have naive toy collector under their thumbs and doing their every bidding. I read that Hasbro had to put a stop on Archer going on the TFw2005 site since it was causing rivalry between different different boards like TNI's sister site, Tformers.com and some fans were getting pissed that only bias questions that praised Archer's direction of the line were being answered.

I don't know if Scott is that arrogant since I don't venture out of the TNI forums nor read his comments on the Matty board, but if he is only answering questions that is one-side, then yeah.
