Wow, how times have changed… I remember every single year rolling my eyes at those MattyCollector updates…at the thermometer gradually strolling upwards as the subscription period neared completion, thinking about what chumps Mattel was and the folks who hung on their every word.
Well, call me a chump.
I can’t quite explain it, but over the past 16 months, I’ve been captured by the MOTUC net and I was exceptionally excited to see the 200x Sub succeed, so I’ve been following along the whole way. To see it victorious today made me really, really happy.
These figures aren’t nostaliga triggering classics… they’re just a selection of amazing, bad ass looking action figures, and that’s enough to sell me. They’ll be perfect for anyone’s collection whether you’re a Masters of the Universe purist or a 200x afficianado. I’m glad to see the sub succeed, and I can’t wait to get my first figure in the mail.
