will anyone here pay money for mystery figures?
It appears the rules for buying the TFCC Subscription TF figures are as follows: You pay a subscription price for 3 months or 6 months which locks you in for Two or Four figures,which are shipped out 2 per order. The WEIRD RULE is it's a mystery what TFCC Subscription figures you'll receive. it doesn't appear you can just buy two figures & then end your contract. it seems like your forced into a 6 month or 3 month contract. who even know if TFCC charges your credit card once you hit the order send button. technically these Subscription figures fall into the pre-ordering catagory. since the subscription figures aren't ready to ship out once you click on the send order link.
Personally all these rules seem kinda awful. I ain't paying for mystery type subscription figures that I don't want nor need.
No,it doesn't appear the TFCC owners will have over 6 subscription figures in hand & then send out mystery boxes to everyone. It appears every three months it'll be a surprise what two newer subscription figures TFCC gets from Hasbro & then ships out the same two mystery figures that just arrived to everyone who has a valid subscription figure entitles for that 3 month period.
Why exactly can't the TFCC/Fun pub announce the release dates of all the subscription figures. why do subscription members have to blindly pay for subscription figure fees for TF toys they don't want.
The two pack idea is also kinda awful. you get forced to buy two subscription figures regardless if your only interested in one of the two.
Then theirs the announcement that the TFCC Subscription figures might be sold in non-blind,non-Mystery singular figures. but their is a penalty price & you'll pay more for one figure verses buying two in the two pack set.
Why all these penalties,contracts & weird rules?
Out of the Six TFCC subscription figures shown at Botcon 2012. the only two that i'm heavily interested in are Slipscream & Ultra Mammoth Magnus.
