Not sure. I think they are revealing the subscription figures at the booths later during the convention.

The Unnamed One is the name of a character. He's been in a few bios, but no one's ever seen him. Or her.

It seems that Matty learned its lesson from last year and actually rolled out some incentive to subscribe for 2014. Leading in with Two-Bad, Modulok, Glimmer, and teasing about some Unnamed One has whetted my appetite for sure.

Also, I'm liking a lot of the stuff coming out at the end of the year. Plundor? Oh yes, please.

I'm curious what lesson you think Mattel learned? @lol@

This really isn't any different than last year when they revealed Ram Man, Jitsu, and Fang Man. The year before it was Sorceress, Fisto, Kobra Kahn and Shadow Weaver. They always pack the most wanted figures in at the beginning of the year to show at SDCC to help sell subs.

Not enough figures I want. I wanted Blade, saurod, and gwilder. I could care less for hydron, Glimmer and modulok. Not enough A list characters left or not making these movie characters and I am done with the subs. I have a feeling a lot of people are. They needed to have a blade and saurod made and shown

So, you have to be a sub holder to get the Horde Trooper. That sucks. I like what I am seeing though. I would definitely pick up Modulok.

Neitlich said that 2014 was going to be ONLY heavy hitters from various factions... Somehow I have a feeling that this will not hold true. If we don't get Eldor and Rio Blast next year I'm going to be sad.

I was referring to leading in with Netossa, FFM, and yes, Fang-Man, who wasn't especially well liked until Matty stepped in and said non-subscribers couldn't get one.

Netossa__________Two-Bad
Ram Man_________Modulok
Jitsu_______vs.____Glimmer
FFM_____________Hydron
Fang Man
King He-Man______Unnamed One

Yeah, I'm gonna say 2014 is an improvement.

Well, I guess it's a matter of opinion.

I have a feeling we're still gonna see the same begging for subs that we saw last year...

Horde Troopers are something that Mattel could put in their store full time and they would sell. Constantly. This just proves the fact that Mattel has no interest in this line actually succeeding.

Where does it say that horde troopers will be sub exclusive? Havent heard anything about that. It would make no sense either since its an army builder set.
