we... failed.

for now at least. The sub numbers apparently only hit 90%. I'm very shocked at this dramatic drop but there's still a chance albeit a small one.

The subs are reopening over the weekend from Friday through Monday in an effort to get the last few numbers we need. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'd like to believe even if we only get up to 95% it'll be pushed through, but I honestly don't know anymore. At any rate I'm guessing we can kiss any add on sub goodbye.

If the sub fails we will get the first few figures shown at SDCC as quarterly releases and that will be it.

I hope the sub goes through for everyone...I had started to collect this line 3 times...just couldn't keep up with it. Didn't have the room for everything...Still remember ordering King Grayskull and getting the variant. I was totally bummed I didn't get the regular version.

Hope for everyones sake it can get a late push though!!

I'm not much of a He-Man fan, but for the sake of the faithful Eternia fans, I hope the power of Greyskull helps keep the line going strong. Smile Cool

Im not a big fan either (and, to tell you the truth, I don't remember if I ever watched the cartoon), but I share every single one of your words.

Letīs hope for the best!

Guys look at these images that just got leaked:



Angella!



Multi-Bot!

These figures are sculpted! They are ready to go! But they won't come if the sub fails! Please, I'm begging everyone and anyone. Help out any way you can. Spread the word. Buy a sub or two. If you don't want to keep them turn around and sell them on e-bay (sell them at an increased price) Give them as gifts to friends. Donate them to Toys for Tots then write it off as charity on your taxes. Whatever you can do. I just signed up for a second sub myself and I've been going around to toy and comic shops letting people know about it. Remember this is the epic conclusion. We'll be done after this and I really won't ask you to do this ever again.

Once 2015 is secure then we can yell about how Mattel should have opened the year with these ones as sub lures instead!

WE MADE IT!!!!!!!!!!!

apparently the final tally after the extension was 100.09% Just barely but we did it.

Thank you everyone who helped in any way.


Few things to mention about the 2015 sub:

1. Mattel announced Ninjor will have no day of sale
2. For some reason the snake form of Battle Armor King Hiss will not be included in the 2-pack. Don't panic, it is coming but will be packed with another figure (yet to be revealed). If you have a sub you will get it.
3. The mini-comic included with the sub exclusive Oo-Larr is part one of a three part story. Originally the plan was that if we got any continuation in 2016 and beyond they'd do parts two and three then, but if there was nothing then the line would end with a cliffhanger mini-comic just as the vintage line did thus creating a bookend effect. Instead however they now say parts 2 and 3 will be included with the $60 year end item, which is part of the sub. (the year end item will have day of sale but Oo-Larr with part one is the sub exclusive)

Awesome news!!! Now won't they even re-open it again at some point now that it's made it through to possibly get anymore sales or am I imagining they did that in years past? Smile

Yes and no.

In 2013 around the second quarter they offered up a "Club Eternia Light" which gave people a chance to subscribe for the rest of the year starting with the May figures on. During that sale they also reopened the Club Filmation mini-sub as well as a "Light" version of the DC Classics sub. (Since Club Filmation had not started shipping its first figures yet if you signed up in that one you still got the full set) In that case though they didn't increase production. There was a limit to how many new subs that could be ordered and the figures were taken out of the amount that were made for Day of Sale.

Then during the sub drive for the 2014 line they were offering subs for MOTUC as well as DC and a preorder drive to get an Ecto-1 vehicle for the Ghostbusters line. MOTUC met it's goal but DC and Ghostbusters failed and were canceled. Following that though there was a brief reopening -the premise being that anyone who could only afford one line and had chosen one that didn't go forward could switch over to MOTUC. (It worked and the subs got an additional 5%)

This year the extension period went to getting MOTUC to go through. The whole reason there's a cut off time is they need to have production numbers in by a certain date in order to have the merchandise ready to ship out on time. So it's possible, but unlikely, they may do another "light" sub drive some time next year, but there won't be any more extensions prior to 2015.

Excellent! Very Happy Cool Glad to hear the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe line will continue. Hopefully the fans can get figures for all the more obscure and more well known characters they've still been waiting for- Battle Cat, ride on! Smile
