How sad is it that nearly 2 years into the line, digital river still can't handle something as simple as an address change? Bozos sent my monthly figure to my old pre move address despite my changing it a month in advance and receiving an email confirmation that the changes had been made in their system.. Sigh.

Got my Whiplash and it only took 30 minutes.  Great website, Matty!   ::)

Aw man, I forgot all about Whiplash. Too bad these only last for minutes instead of days.

Yeah, that's what is sort of messed up with this line.  It really has to be the top priority in your life (at least once a month) to have any chance of keeping up.  I have the sub, so I'm usually all set (aside from the bonus figures - which I haven't usually been all that interested in), but it stinks for those who miss out.  If you just forget, even for a couple hours, that something is up for sale - you're out of luck (and sometimes even if you do remember, you're out of luck).  It is really too bad Mattel won't do something to remedy this, aside from offering the figures again months later.

Mattel continues to say screw you to us by eliminating the possibility of 200X heads.  I dont get why if it is an adult collector line they cannot listen to the fans. Not everyone wants 200X like i do but at tleast the option was their for both kinds of fans.

They asked fans what they wanted, heads or comics.  Heads was the choice and now Matty is going back on that.  It does suck.  The extra Grizzlor face would have been nice.  Buzz Off and Roboto could have come with extra heads.  Fisto would look great with his Celtic looking headband from 200x.  I hope they will make all as bonus figures.  I also want to see Fisto come with his 200x sword we were never given.  The people above Toyguru must be the same morons who ran the 200x line into the ground.

With as much as these things cost, losing the extra heads is crap. Toyguru blamed it on upper management, so I'm going to assume it's the same bunch of clowns that ruined the 200x line.

But maybe, without worrying about manufacturing second heads, they can turn their attention to the ankle articulation issue and make these things actually be able to stand.

I'll take standing figures over a second head any day.  Hell, I'm still waiting for someone to contact me over my defective Adam.  Three emails and one phone call later. . .still nothing.

I haven't been following MOTUC lately.  I've been eyeing a few but still am passing.  Right now all I have left is Hordak.  Trap-Jaw will be mine someday and maybe Roboto.

Trying to get gygor was a complete mess yesterday. I was getting the WSOD death for almost an hour before finally getting him.

I had WSOD for about an hour, then I said "Screw this."  I went back to work.  I did go on after work and picked up Egon and Chief Carnivus.  Man, the next three months will be brutal.  I even had five seconds of WSOD when I went to Matty's site on Thursday.  That site is an absolute joke.

Army builders and King Grayskull are going to be mind-numbing ordering experiences.

Are they the same month?  If so, multiply the above x 10.
