The comics are nice, but obviously not worth the price. I basically paid for an opportunity to pay ridiculous prices for decent but not great figures that I might not have even gotten at retail. Then, as it turns out, thank goodness I didn't because now they are behind schedule anyway.
The thoughts of most of the people who cancelled their subscription.
And as far as FunPub caring about what we think... yeah right. All they see is $$$ and nothing else. I can only hope their replacements are quickly forthcoming and ALOT better than the schmucks at the current establishment.
Hell, I'd rather they brought back 3H. At least those guys made repaints into ORIGINAL CHARACTERS instead of constantly attempting (and failing miserably) to do fanservice to everyone by trying to 'homage' (or SG) every G1/G2 character in existence 642 times.
Q: "What's the theme for this year's toys?"
A (Funpub): "Shattered Glass."
Q: "Ah, you mean yet ANOTHER sad excuse for repainting molds into the SAME character they already are but in a reverse color scheme and trying to pass it off as something unique?"
A (Funpub): "Yeah, that one."
Q: "What's next year's theme going to be?"
A (Funpub): "It won't be Shattered Glass, but it will be yet another chance to repaint one figure into an obscure character from G1 or G2 instead of creating somebody new."
OK, yeah, I'm just poking fun so hopefully no hardcore Funpub fans are gonna jump down my throat, but it gets a bit old.
I keep wishing for something that will never happen, which is either A)Funpub comes up with their own characters or B)Hasbro actually breaks down and gives them their own set of molds instead of forcing them to do repaints and repaints with new heads. The former is obviously much more likely (even though I've not seen them do it yet).
Of course, all that said, I'm a subscription member and I don't regret it. I've seen the repaints I'm getting this year and I'm rather happy with at least a few of them
