Probably to keep the "name" active and registered. Matty the name Castapella and other names on those white mailer boxes long before a figure was announced.

Ah, cool, that's good to hear. If Mattel did an Oo-Larr in 2014 or 2015 it could potentially be my favorite figure yet. I've been waiting for an Alcala He-Man for ages.

I don't think they have to worry about reserving the name "Oo-lar". It's kind of a ridiculous name that no other company would be caught dead using.

I just noticed that the sub went up roughly 30% on the last day, which made me 2 for 2 for my final day prediction. 2015 is looking dicey with an expected price hike and even fewer desirable figures left to produce. I have a feeling that even if the sub doesn't succeed, they'll figure out a way to get those last few promised figures made. That probably means $35 figures if the sub fails vs $27 ($29 Day Of sale) if the sub goes through.

Matty needs to figure some stuff out. They're relying on these sales drives with very limited transparency. They're using a company (digital river) that makes its money on the shipping fees, so something as basic as being able to easily combine orders to allow the customer to save on shipping is probably never going to happen. And they try to push everything through at the exact same time to keep everything on a strict January-December track when it would make more sense to stagger the subscriptions so that the drives are happening at different times of the year.

Doesn't sound like they have the ability to make the necessary changes, though. So be prepared for the sub to fail next year and the final 12 figures being high-priced and quick sell-outs on their day of release. It's not going to be pretty.

200X is the best, but I feel the probability is low. Though I still hold out hope. One reason I like the Alcala version so much is I think it's closer to the 200X look than the Vintage toy style is. Honestly, my favorite "He-Man" style head sculpts in the line are all of them but He-Man. I love King Grayskull, Vikor, and Vykron. Don't get me wrong, He-Man is fantastic, but I can't unseen Leonardo Dicaprio which I think he resembles. lol. NA He-Man is kind of weird, they let the 5th Horseman sculpt him and he doesn't really match the regular He-Man too well. He has awkward eyes on the pony tail head. The helmeted head is better. I do still like them all though, but I have minor quips will all of them, lol. King Grayskull is my favorite MOTUC figure though.

I need Oo-Larr, he is sorely missing from my growing "He-Men" collection. Plus it will mean bare feet in MOTUC which will be awesome, lol.

I am also in the market for a Shadow Weaver at a decent price. Can be loose complete. I just started collecting motuc in Dec, and missed out on a ton of figures.

Also, anyone have an extra yellow lion from the voltron sub? Or the sub exclusive figure? I missed both.
