Here’s how you get that number.
12 monthly figures x $20 = $240
4 quarterly figures x $20 = $80
3 oversized figures x $30 = $90
1 oversized figure x $40 = $40
Subscription cost = $20
Total = $470
Mattel charges me shipping of $8.70 on each figure. So at least you are looking at $8.70 per month in shipping but probably more. We’ll go with the minimum for this example.
$8.70 x 12 = $104.40
Total = $574.40
Mattel also charges sales tax. By my calculations, they are charging tax on the sale and the shipping cost at 9.23%.
9.23% x $547.40 = $53.00
Total = $627.40
These numbers are coming from Mattel’s MOTU panel this week at Comic Con. The numbers from my post a month ago were right on. If you divide this up by 12, it doesn’t seem that bad at $52.28 a month. You may want to start saving now. I will be taking my chances on trying to get only the figures I actually want.
P.S. This total doesn’t include the non subscription items announced at Comic Con for 2011, including more Grayskull stands, reissued figures (almost one a month), SDCC exclusive, weapons pak, dioramas and a vehicle.
