    Yeah it was the Pixel Dan/Toyguru video review. I like Vikor more and more. I still think the eternia club exclusive could had been a better choice.

    On another note i my friend in the states got me some orkos, mo-lar and deodorant stick, couldnt get the prints but happy with what he got me. Think i will still get a regular orko on the 2nd/3rd.

So pretty sure bet u will get ur money back if u on-sell what u dont want!

    I don't think the secondary market will be as strong next year. All throughout this year, a lot of us were not prepared and had to rely on 2am online purchases. Missing out on those purchases is what is driving the secondary market.

    It seems that a lot of people are going to get 2011 subs, multiple subs even, so the demand may be less.

    I am getting 2 subs. For the occasions where I don't need a second figure, I'll offer it up to whoevere wants it. But I'm not going to rely on it to help reduce costs. Things may end up that it will be a struggle to break even with regard to unwanted figs next year.

    What shop is selling MOTUC?

    What shop is selling MOTUC?
    Yeah definately - but I think the market in Australia will only just start to heat up - especially if we see the DC vs MOTU 2-Packs poppin up in TRU !! Its not common knowledge in Australia that He-Man is back - but I'm sure the momentum will grow with the rumours of the movie and collectors like us talkin up to friends etc - but you are right - the secondary market will be weakened cos everyone is fed up with the shopping cart and buying subs instead ... But there is still a retail market for He-Man in Australia - definately! .... I keep one MOC and one to open - but getting an extra sub to cover the 2-way figures and have an extra shadow beast and army bulder eternians for my loose display etc ... i will have a few extra MOC's left over but i'll be in no rush to part with them unless someone on here is need ...

    Comics R Us in the city bro - pretty expensive but it IS a retail shop - and they DO sell! - They've got Vintage stuff in there too, but again - pretty pricey and some arent even C-5 - but theres a nice boxed multi-bot in there atm... I got the slime pit mini-comic from there for $5 tho - thought that was a bargain.... I havent checked the chapel st store yet cos they usually have more MOTU than the city, but I will next time i'm down there.

    I was at the Chapel St. CRU recently and unless you're after about 5 200X figures and/or a couple of stactions then you'd be wasting your time

    Was also in the city store and they carry mini comics, vintage figures, a few 200X figures/stactions and some MOTUC figures. Stock can be up and down in terms of what you're after particularly vintage figures.

    It isn't hard to simply update an ebay item as being posted so I am still cautious. Especially now that the seller is starting to receive some negative feedback regarding SDCC exclusives. However, he is still getting positive feedback on SDCC exclusives so I don't know.

    I am quite happy to get my money back, I can live without the SDCC Orko, providing I am successful next week

    My snail mail Marzo just rocked up!

    And he seems to have a break in the plastic under his right nipple. will post pics later. But as he is my 'MOC' figure, Im not thrilled!


    @Fallen, I started a case against the seller, cos the time limit was nearly up,Paypal gives me my money back and If Orko Arrives I will repay him the money. But If I leave it any longer I wont be covered By Paypal.

    I have a tracking number but nothing is coming up yet. I will see if anything comes up with it over the weekend and contact the seller. If nothing happens then I will file a dispute on Monday. It is now at 39 days for me

    The ground freight has gone from 4-5 weeks delivery time to 2-3 weeks delivery time, which is why I went with it again for my 2011 subs

    On a different note, I have asked in the next WTFWTK if Mattel will ever release a figure, like Plastic Man in the DCUC line, that can never be available to Australia/New Zealand.

    I like to think it would never happen but I would hate it if a MOTUC could never be available here.

    Imagine if it was in the sub
    It would make them breach the contract

    Yeah! because Of a ordering glitch, my 2010 sub figures come separately
    1 is snail mail the other is express! so I pay $75+ for just one figure!

    Next year I have three subs coming Snail mail.

    I was gonna suggest that a group of us all get subs together so that the high shipping is a lot less AND we have tracking!

    I had a similar situation a few months ago, if the seller has registered the parcel online and gotten a tracking number, it doesnt show up until the item is actually posted! I got some Dark chrystal figures and the seller registered em staraight away but didnt post em for 3 weeks!

    frustrating!

    I've received all of my figs from Matty without a problem, that's with the sub snail mail shipping & as thefallen stated the shipping is down to 2-3 weeks.

    I think thefallen has had figures from matty go missing in the post before, Did they ever fix you up for the missing figures?
