Fans Choice Sub:


"The sub passed with flying colors and we surpassed our goal by 75%! Eeker If you subbed in you can expect to receive Lord Masque in January 2016 with Vultak, Crita, and the rest of the gang following throughout the year (Day Of stock will be available in limited quantities).

As always, thank you for your continued support of the brand. Things are always in a perpetual state of change but when YOU demonstrate your love and passion for MOTU it makes it that much easier for the team to continue to deliver you guys quality products.

Congratulations once again, back to the salt mines I go.

Skeletorís Love Child"

Maybe now all of the New Adventures hating "real" MotU fans can shut their collective face-holes.

This NA heavy sub outperformed the previous vintage, PoP, and recent 200X subs. "Hardcore MotU fans don't want NA characters" is vocal minority garbage, and now that's fact.

Very Happy

To be fair, only a third of the sub is NA. I think what it does show is that hardcore MOTU fans are keen for more than just vintage figure characters, but also there's new management and a different way of doing things. Who knows what criteria they set compared to previous management and whether previous management were entirely truthful in reporting how subscription sign ups performed. It was always very very suspicious that we'd continually get "the sub may not make it!" warnings and then it would just pass or even not reach the "goal" and still go ahead. The cynic in me can't let go that there main tactic was scaremongering to drive subscription sales (barely passing subs, making certain figures unavailable for day of sale).

The new management appear more transparent and even though they screwed over subscribers this year by not including the King Hsss torso in the sub, they don't seem to really give a crap if anyone is alienated by it. Probably means the sales for the line have always been amazing and they know it, and even the occasional screw up doesn't affect their bottom line a great deal. They'll just unveil the product and sell it with minimal fuss, instead of going hard to push for more and more sales that happened previously.

Beyond those that subscribe, how well will the figures sell? That remains to be seen. The hardcores who want them all have subbed up, but how will the casuals go picking up day of sales stuff?
