Thanks for the advice. I dont use facebook but I might try at the He-man.org. Im little bit angry about this.Cripes!
I recommend posting on the MattyCollector Facebook page, if you're not a member on He-Man.org. Might be some customisers on there who can help. I hope you get it sorted out soon, mate!
She's in the MOTUC style but based on her Filmation appearance, much like the MAA that came with the Battle Ram was based on his Filmation appearance (except his head which was 200x). She's not in the new Filmation style line.Can anyone confirm if the Teela that is to come out with the Point Dread & Talon Fighter going to be in the MOTUC style or the new Filmation style?
I don't see why there is Power-Con rage.... you can get the exclusives regardless if you attend or not... and look at them... repaints.... and not good ones if you ask me.As the Power-Con fury rages on, I find my interest waning in this brand. What I liked about MOTUC was that it was much more readily accessible than any other collectible line has been in ages. Miss a convention? No problem, we'll sell it on our website afterward, and it'll last longer than ten minutes. Heck, even the Chase Figures are made readily available to all at the end of the year. About the only deviations have been the Battle Armour Faker, Treasure Chest Imp, and the lucky draw / charity raffle prizes. This year's Rotar and Twistoid only lasted two hours, but at least that's better than a lot of other toy sites have managed . . . and there's the chance they'll show up again later in the year.
Now, if these Power-Con exclusives lead to more figures we can only get by going to a convention or paying extortionate amounts to the organisers for the possibility of a chance to get them, there goes the ease of collection. Being the cynical guy I am, I can see them saying: "Looks how many tickets we sold! 379 attendees, 10,423 non-attendees who only bought tickets to get the exclusives! We are a force to be reckoned with! We must have more and better exclusives and make them damn near impossible to get unless you come to our piddly little convention and make obeisance to our massive egos!" (I'm also very snarky.) And the wretched thing is, the numbers will make sense, and they'll likely get the go-ahead for more and more exclusives, and it will royally hack a lot of people off, and the line will die. Worst-case scenario.
Best case scenario? This has already hacked off enough people that they (like me) will refuse to play ball, and Power-Con's exclusives scheme will fail and they'll never try this kind of stunt again.
Hobbies should not cause you anger and stress like this.
Well, for starters, they're not going to sell the figures on MattyCollector.com after the convention, something that's been done with every other convention exclusive so far apart from the raffle prizes, Treasure Chest Imp, and Battle Armour Faker. Secondly, if you want the figures and you can't go, you also have to buy a ticket for the convention anyway, AND pay a premium on top of that, something we've never had to do before. Thirdly, these have been produced in a much smaller, limited run, and they're making a big point of "You probably won't get these," which is not a way to make friends in the collector community, especially the long-time fans and completists. And finally, while I, personally, can live without these figures, there are a lot of fans who have wanted these particular figures for a long time, and being told you can't get them very easily, have to buy a ticket anyway, pay a premium as well, and probably won't get one . . . . yeah. That's where the rage comes from.I don't see why there is Power-Con rage.... you can get the exclusives regardless if you attend or not... and look at them... repaints.... and not good ones if you ask me.
I'm hoping to actually go to power con next year, but not really interested in the figures so it doesn't really bother me I guess.. I am more upset by the fact that I didn't get early access to the SDCC items from subscribing to the regular and 200X subs and therefore missed out on Rotar and Twistoid and that the King Hiss torso is going to cost more. I guess I will just do without them (and the hover robots) unless they are all on sale at the same time Cyber Monday.
I really appreciate that non-convention attendees will be able to pick up the repaints directly from the convention if they are so interested.
I'd try posting on the Matty Collector forums, and ask if's there's any way you can still buy a sub. Maybe PM CatrasWrath on there as well, if she still works for Matty and ask her the same.Well I forgot to order my sub (alot going on here
Are there any other options for securing all of the figures?
I'll give it a try, thanks!I'd try posting on the Matty Collector forums, and ask if's there's any way you can still buy a sub. Maybe PM CatrasWrath on there as well, if she still works for Matty and ask her the same.
Alternatively there's the Marketplace forum on He-Man.org.
This page details how to order, costs, etc : http://www.thepower-con.com/2015/08/power-con-2016-faq/Any ideas how these exclusives will be available to non attendees? I wouldn't mine the Camo Kahn and maybe the red Beast Man.
