To follow up on the post from Thursday this week, something that I didn't touch on was the overall cost of the MOTU subscription - or even just buying all of the figures in the subscription.
To those fans who want less than the 12 figures, beasts, and ephemera in the sub - FUCK YOU.
Here's my reasoning - you'll NEVER get what you want. It's a fact.
(it surprises me that I am as calm as I feel about this whole situation, as a person who once sold his entire G1 collection because of Beast Wars - "animals? The whole line? Fuck this shit!")
Do you know why, mystery fans of MOTU? Because you are too narrow minded.
I've had a life that some would deem extraordinary, even at 35 years of age.
An integral part of this life has been the ability to be open to new ideas. You know what rigid things do? They break when you attempt to bend them. Flexible things...bend.
With all due respect to the entity know as Tallstar on the He-Man.org boards, who I am unsure if I would dropkick, hug, or shake the hand of if I met this entity in person, I don't actually give two shits about the Star Sisters, poster deco, figure deco, imagination deco.
I'm unsure how this happened, but I am just HAPPY with whatever the fix is that Mattel decides to give us each month. i wish I could distill the funky measure that has gotten into my brains that just allows me to accept the monthly offering of MOTU Classics as "good enough".
Give me Bow. Give me Quakke. Give me Night Stalker, Faker, Demo-Man, whatever- it works for me.
Somehow they convinced me that whatever they sell in a box called MOTU every month is a MOTU figure. If only this could work for everyone out there...
Ah shit. Fuck that. I'm calling out Eric Treadaway right now. And Toy Guru. Where is my Lizorr? If he isn't made in 2012, I'm going to be a big baby and hold my breath until my vagina hurts.
Again, back to Glyos coverage in a day or so. And some special OSM stuff!
