2015 Sub will be LIMITED O.O

Post by Jor-El on Tue Jun 24, 2014 1:09 pm

Just so you're all aware, they're only gonna sell a SET NUMBER of 2015 subscriptsion: http://news.mattycollector.com/blog/2014/06/23/announcing-2015-club-eternia-subscriptions-available/

Also, the tools in charge have stated there will likely be NO DAY OF SALE figures in 2015.

Let me just say this in the kindest possible words: WHAT A BUNCH OF FUCKING ASSHOLES

the way matty handles it's lines really boggles my mind, I guess it could be chalked up to fear marketing (which isn't a stretch for matty) but it really does seem that they don't want lines to succeed with some of their naff decisions

I don't understand the logic of either decision, but I'm not surprised. And I'm finding it more and more difficult to care.

Mattel seem determined to take all the fun out of collecting MOTUC!

Of course, whether there will be any "truth" to either position remains to be seen. I find it highly unlikely that if, for some reason, they "sell out" of subscriptions within two days, they wouldn't re-open them. And I also find it highly unlikely that no figures in 2015 will have any "day of sales".

Surely there will be some which come with two heads or are "army builders" which they know people would want multiples of.

As much as I think it's stupid I get why designer toys/vinyls etc do the limited releases/sales. The emo is celebrated on the threeA forums. Why a huge multinational company would bother with this just seems stupid….It doesn't make it cool it just pisses of most of your customers….who are probably in the 25-45 age bracket. Makes your quite sellable product unavailable for new collectors.
I'm glad I didn't get a sub this year…still need to pick up some of the big figures I missed (and I'll pay a bit ion ebay to do so) but my care factor has certainly dropped with this line. At least on this forum you can write what you like….wonder what the censorship is running like at the .org…….dumb Matty

Boggles the mind that they'd really be so stupid to limit the subs. I get canning Day of Sales to a certain extent. But limiting the subs is just putting a cap on the cash you can make. Crazy.

Still, I wonder how many people do what i did this year. I subbed cause I wanted to guarantee the first two figures, then cancelled the credit card I used so I didn't have to get the rest of the sub. Probably didn't help anyone else's cause, but didn't want to risk missing out on Two Bad or Modulok with the chance they wouldn't be released day of and had no desire for anyone else.

How many companies do you know that have a business model where they try to limit the amount of product they sell?

MOTHER FUCKERS!

Then some people will pay $50 to $100 in ebay for a figure that they could not get.

So the sub hasn't gone through.... yet.

Was anyone here not subbing for any reason but was going to cherry pick certain figures - I'm considering getting a second sub to sell on figures, just to make sure it goes through (I'm thrilled we'll get a Lizard Man in some capacity anyway, but gutted no Saurod or Blast Attack if it fails).

Let me know if this is something you'd be interested in - I'm happy for these to go at cost too (figure and postage).

2015 subs not confirmed? I thought the target has been achieved (appeared that way when I checked last week).

They only got 90% according to ToyGuru
http://news.mattycollector.com/blog/2014/08/19/2015-club-eternia-subscription-extended-friday-822-through-monday-825-only/

This is probably going to hurt the old bank account, but would you be happy to put me down for a second sub Paul?

I'm highly cynical of these tactics. I'd be floored if the sub doesn't go through.

He-Man.org is already in overdrive with people saying they're gonna get multiple subs to ensure it gets to 100%. My feeling is it's a deliberate tactic because they know they can get people to order more than they need.

Mattel are dirty scumbags.

No way would this not go through, if it doesn't I will be pretty shocked, it would probably spell the end of times for MattyCollector as they don't really sell anything beyond MOTUC these days.

Totally agree. Cancelling a toy line (where they pay NO LICENSE FEE) for being a paltry 10% down on what they projected sales to be is just crazy IMO. If that is the business model for which Mattel operates under, I'm surprised that they're still in the toy business.

So anyone nabbing more than the originally intended amount of subs because of the 10% shortage?

I'm down for my normal 2 subs for carded and open... can't really justify/afford a 3rd! But yeh, was curious how everyone was feeling on this!

I can't recall how much extra shipping would add though. I'm already doing the quarterly to try and make this semi affordable!

man i hope it goes through! Call me naive but I usually believe when they say this stuff about not having enough lol. Too trusting or chicken little.. not sure..

I asked GoodDr to put me down for a second. I can give the extra figures to my niece & nephew or I can try to sell some of them.
