More threats from Mattel:

"Additionally, in 2012 we will be reducing our production of all figures above and beyond the subs. We will still have product on sale day for those who do not have a sub, but in general there will be a bit less. Your first, best and most reliable way of getting the figures you want is to sign up for the sub (and the only way to get Shadow Weaver–our first Filmation character!). This will be the case for all subscriptions, not just MOTUC."

Wow. Wasn't it just a few months ago they asked a bunch of the major action figure and MOTU fan-sites for suggestions about how they could improve? And now they're back to their subscription-threatening ways. First they make Shadow Weaver the sub-exclusive because apparently that was the *only* way she could be made (which bodes well for Ram Man to be the sub-exclusive for 2013) and now they're lowering production numbers despite the (supposed) sell-outs of figures. IF the figures are being pulled because they're NOT selling out, then perhaps Mattel should consider leaving them online so that people can save on shipping, which may motivate them to grab an extra figure or two.

Anyway, mini-rant now over.

Cheers.

I couldn't agree more, I was sitting on the fence about getting a DCUC sub...but this is just silly. Time to start customising again to fill in the gaps. I do want to thank Mattel though, 20 waves is not a bad run...just some poor choices #cough# Sinestro Bats... Suspect

Toyguru's response:

"We're not going for ten minute sell out or anything. Not to worry, there will still be day of stock for those without a sub. Just very slighty less to help keep inventory under control. The bigger change is that we are moving away from as many reissues. But their will still be quite a lot open stock for non sub holders. Not to worry!

We just wanted to give everyone a heads up as they choose whether or not to subscribe!"

I'll believe it when I see it or more accurately, when MOTUC figures don't consistently sell out in less than an hour.

Cheers.

Oh yeah, like Mattel having "days of stock" available for non-subscribers is the fucking norm! What an ass.

Real estate is expensive.

They can't have too many items sitting around in their warehouse, as it's a HUGE waste of money.
