    It's defiantly a factor, but not some thing you can blame Mattel for so there's really no where to point the finger other then these countries.

    I've said it before, but things like prematurely pulling the plug on the whole no DOS card by in turn "selling" those figures this year "before" the 2015 sub. window closed was SO FOOLISH...

    What would "account" for it? It's simply a downfall of their system for people to cancel so easily which is why you always see a bunch of stuff sold out forever and then a ton of it back available...

    That's EXACTLY what I've been saying all along. People who underestimated the power of the "Fear of the Sell-Out" and "Free Stands" pitch that were there from the get go are being foolish. I still...

    Which gets updated a whopping twice a week? It's not like it's an instantaneous gauge and especially in the beginning when we had no idea on how fast things would or could end.

    I would normally agree with you, but not this year. Only because the "fear" of the sell out was there from the instant. Who and ESPECIALLY what seller in their right mind would wait until the last...

    For those of you that are still awaiting shipping notices....Did you order any thing else within that that order? Reason I ask is because I'm thinking that Doomsday might be holding things up.

    I think you people are a bit confused on the differences between "shipping" and "handling."

    Whether you pay for 1 day, 2nd day or 100 day shipping that's all in relation to the amount of actual...

    I don't see the kind of last minute push like previous years. There will be some thing, but not like before which is why we've already seen the early success that we have. IMO all of those buyers...

    If this is what you and Dynamo believe then "Pre-Ordering" ANY THING from any where is then pointless.

    Pre-Orders are NEVER "guaranteed" no matter where you get them. Just read the description on...
