i finally ordered one but i hate this random sale nonsense. if they want to sell subs they should sell the rest of the stock at next month's early access.
So The Spirit of Hordak made his appearance on MattyCollector.com last night again.
Again I missed him!
What do you guys think about the whole idea of him making appearance and just to disappear again for a couple of weeks!
I personally think it’s a stupid idea and Mattel should put SOH in the Matty Store and give all of us a chance to buy him!
Please like my cool MOTU Universe FaceBook page at:

Well I think it's a way for them to add excitement to a figure who many people might not want to buy if it was a normal release. Since people feel the window of opportunity to purchase him is so short they might jump on him whereas if he was going to be sitting there all the time they might wait longer, think about it, and decide they don't need him. And by doing the repeated sales windows for him they can repeat this excitement over and over vs. just having a one-day sale event like they usually do. So it may be an ingenious way of moving a figure many people might not buy otherwise.
Harken the coming of Dragstor!!
I need to buy a couple
i have to say again, having only this thread to announce sales is stupid. i've given up on this Gorn-damned figure and Matty's lame attempts at "fun." however, if i was interested, this thread and it's subject wouldn't do me much good.
You can subscribe to this thread to get e-mail updates when a new post is made. It's not that busy, it had no posts between the 19th and the 2nd.
There are also other ways to get the news as well. I know there were Facebook posts and Twitter Tweets about it(the Fwoosh sent out the heads up to it's friends and followers, I know). I get updates from those social media sites straight to my smart phone.
Not that I agree with the random guerilla marketing approach - but it's hard to deny that it's been effective in driving up demand for something that likely would have been trashed as cheap garbage if it had been insterted as a quarterly variant release.
My guess is that if you really want one, you can try to plug in using social media to finally get in on one of the random appearances... but also I predict the balance of the figure stock will go up for sale at the end of the year - either during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday push or in December's sales window. I don't think anybody should panic about not having him until around Christmas.
I've decided that in my cannon SOH will be Hordak infused with some great power. He will be more of a God at that level.
But who wants to subscribe to a web site's entire feed just to look for SOH updates? Starting new threads for SOH also doesn't help unless you're constantly looking at this forum. The best thing is to have a single thread like this and click the option to subscribe to it. Since this thread isn't that high-traffic you can just check your e-mail to see when a new post is made every so often and eventually it'll be SOH.
I still miss SOH, wish I get him soon
I just can't seem to bring myself to pick SOH up. I've had him in my cart on two different occasions and keep talking myself out of the purchase. I hate the way the armor doesn't extend all the way down to Hordak's waist. It kills the aesthetics of the figure for me. I lived with it on the regular release just because it's Hordak. I just can't seem to get over my loathing of it enough to pick up this variant.
Strongdar, I very much want to ask you where you avatar is from, but your private message quota has been reached!
Also - I so don't see what the hype is over this figure. This sculpt of Hordak does nothing for me (Filmation Hordak rules!) and casting him in red doesn't really improve it. Can't folks just point a red light at their existing Hordak figure and go "woooo....Wooooo!!!" and get the same effect?
I got my SoH months ago and have yet to open it. It's fairly rare, and a cool novelty item. I'd love to open it, but...
I've always been refreshing the mattycollector site everyday in the hope of getting him but to no avail.
Coming....Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....
I've missed Spirit of Hordak 5 times. As far as I could tell he didn't go on sale at all throughout September. I noticed today, that his page didn't say he was in hiding, it said congrats you found him, but I can't buy him, because his page keeps saying 'currently unavailable'. I've been refreshing for 9 hours and the message isn't changing to 'add to cart'. They say something about the stock will arriving Saturday, but Digital River don't work on weekends. Does anyone know what's going on?
