    Toy Subscription

    Any chance of selling a toy subscription? I give you my credit card and once a month you send me all the newest toys from the lines I signed up for?

    I.E I want all the Movie or animated or classics or alternator or binaltech or every Takara Tomy Encore #X, or every Henkei, or every show exclusive or every Masterpiece or every Alternity etc I sign up for them and and once a month I get an e-mail with what will be coming later that month if I don't cancel.

    Edit: Two other lines:
    1) The rare line - the toy from every wave that has the lowest ratio per box and would probably never be able to find at the store.
    2) The popular line - the top selling toys that month that I havn't alrady received.

    Some sort of shipping and or toy discount would make sense considering it is near guarantee of continued revenue
