Toy Boy should use the UPC proofs of purchase

I meant Toy Biz in the title, not Toy Boy, SORRY!!!!

 

 

Even the Hasbro Star Wars figures got around to doing this after years. They should have it where you send in anywhere from 3-10 UPC bar codes from the back of any Marvel figure, pay a small shipping fee, and get a figure in the mail. They could have a cut off date, so they know exactly how many to produce, and wouldnt end up with overstock. They could make a new figure, one that maybe would have a harder time selling in stores. They could do a re-paint, and save themselves money, still making a costume we would like to see made. The could re-release a previously hard to find figure.

I think this would just be a good idea for them, because it would make fans happy, and really wouldnt cost them much in the end. Fans would feel taken care of by a company they give tons of money to each year. It would be especially nice is we could vote on this figure. I know this might sound like dreaming, but its very possible and companies have been doing this since the 1970s.

Or they could get together with Toy Fare and put one out with the magazine, like they used to in the 90's. Should we start a petition to get this done, or am I dreaming. Just a thought Ive been having. Take care all.

Neither one is gonna happen. Toy Biz has changed the way they do business from the 90s when they had Toyfare exclusives. Everything is produced in China and picked up there by retailers and distributors. Toy Biz doesn't handle any of the actual merchandise stateside. So they have no facilities to process exclusives and mailaways. And Toyfare doesn't generate enough orders to justify production.

Maxim is right....but you're not the only one that has wanted to see something like that happen.

I agree, tigertrap. I am all about mail away figures. Stuff like Moss Man from the MOTU line, and Faker & SNake teela are awesome and a lot of fun.

 

Even if toy biz did it for the chase figures theyve already had in the line (such as chase ghost rider, blue iron man, etc) it would be great.
