    Holy cow, you're right! When your thread went up they still showed available to me and I thought "You crazy! " but I refreshed and they were gone. That's crazy.

    I was on at 11. It gave me a strange error when I first tried, so I tried again and at 11:03, sold out. So basically one dude bought the 999 limit and they were out in one transaction? Great idea there Matty.

    I really thought these would last awhile. Guess they didn't have too many of them...
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    I didn't think of that, but it's highly likely...Some guy may have bought a ton of these...I can't imagine they only had a few of these on hand.

    Easy there. We have no idea how many of these packs they had available. It could have been 50, it could have been 500. Probably not that many, but I wouldn't say they sold out quickly because one person bought most of them.

    I'm pretty sad about it...was going smoothly, and then *poof*. I'm curious who got what, and what was included. I'm sure someone went for broke and we'll see a nice BST thread starting soon for 999 Chief Carnivous' for sale.

    If any "resellers" bought a ton of these in hopes of resellings the items individually for a profit, I hope they get stuck with a ton of items that just won't sell (like maybe a bunch of Goddess figures that are already broken in the package).

    I was able to get 2 MOTU, 1 DCU, and 1 Ghostbusters before they sold out. Hopefully the MOTU will be 2 different assortments, but I know there's a good chance they could be the same. It was worth a shot though.

    Someone mustve filled out their order for the maximum allowed, 999, for them to sell out so quickly.

    FRAK!!!! I had 2 in my cart and by the time I hit the final complete transaction button it was sold out!
    I am REALLY disappointed. I have been looking forward to this since I heard about it... what a DISAPPOINTMENT. That WAS NOT FUN Matty! 999 limit was a VERY BAD idea.

    What a let down.

    Reissue Grizzlor is now "Almost Gone".

    Do you think people actually ordered him along with their Mad Matty Mystery Pakk, or did Mattel throw a Grizzlor in every Mad Matty Mystery Pakk since he's currently available?

    Oh and a Pakk of stands is probably in each one too!

    999 > 500.

    It's tough to say what happened...It could of went either way...A few guys may have bought a ton or they simply didn't make all that many so that they could increase the hype for the future...They obviously have a bunch of stuff in stock so a shortage isn't the problem, they could just be rationing it out for future sales.

    Did you try to put 999 in your cart when it went live? That's the only way you will know if they had that many.
