MOTU Subscription Service Sign-ups Start 5/18!
MOTU: Jay Cochran - 2009.05.07
Mattel has released the following details today for their Masters of the Universe subscription service. This is mainly the same information we reported to you yesterday but we wanted to make sure you are kept up-to-date.

All the details will be on the sign-up page when it launches, but here's how it's basically gonna work:

- From May 18th through May 22nd (five days only), come to MattyCollector.com to sign up for the 2009 service.
Every month, from September through December, you'll be guaranteed to get the figure of the month at current prices, for a total of four.

- Once you sign up, you're in for the whole period (subscriptions can't be cancelled).

- Exact figures will be announced approximately three months from each on-sale date.

- Figures can either be shipped and charged once per month as they become available, or they can be held for the year, and charged and shipped together on December 15th.

- You can sign up for as many subscriptions as you want during the five day period. No limit!

- Figures will also be available at MattyCollector.com on the 15th of each month without the subscription. So, if you want extras of some figures, you'll still have the option to buy more — but availability won't be guaranteed.

- The subscription will only be for the figure of the month, and won't include convention figures, or other special figures.
Subscriptions for the full year 2010 will be available in August 2009.

It doesn't get a whole lot easier. Sign up once and you're done… MOTU figures just show up at your door! No worrying about being logged in when a sale starts, or a figure selling out before you get one.

Again, complete details (including all the legal mumbo-jumbo) will be on the sign-up page. And remember, you can get as many as you want but subscriptions will only be available for five days, so mark your calendars for Monday, May 18th!


Find it @  Big Bad Toy Store - Ebay

[quote] ok, this whole subscription thing seems WACK to me! So if i sign up, i CANT cancel? what if you have money problems? or decide you dont want this stuff anymore? WTF? Another thing is your going in blind with a full years order. What if they shift from classic figures to New Adv... read more

At 20 for 12 figures comes out to about 240 before shipping. Not a bad deal I suppose but I don't feel comfortable committing to an entire year's worth figures without knowing what the next few ones will be 4-6 months from now. While I'm guaranteed to at least get one but would rather bu... read more

DOH! I forgot about NA being in here. Well, if I get any of those figures, I'll post em here for trade. The subscription will be the real test of demand I think. People will have to put up or shut up for the next year so Mattel will have a real gauge of who is willing to buy with these restr... read more

I am going to play with fire and just try on the 15th of every month. I would have preferred a preorder (even if it was 6 months in advance) over a subscription. I have no interest in 200x or New Adventures so I would hate to be stuck with a bunch of that stuff. The subscription is smart on Matte... read more

Damnit. Well, I do have a plan for handling Hordak, and even though he will still be crazy to access, MAA shouldn't cause as much of a ruckus.

Yeah, the subscription is for the September through December figures, so get out your laptop on the 15th of May, June, July, and August if you want those respective figures.

So....does that mean that Hordak and MAA will make the cut in time or is this only for the September-December figures? I ask because they said it would "include", not "it will be availiable for", so I don't know whether or not I need to be on my Laptop June 15th or not.
