    The Countdown to the August 2nd sale of Orko,Adam and Mo-Larr on matty.

    Well, here we go again, Its hard to believe that SDCC has come and gone again.

    But it has and now its time to battle it out for Orko and Some Prince dude (NO not the little one with the guitar and high heels, this ones in lavender tights...Oh! )

    And

    Heeeeerreeees Mo-Larr!!! Yep the Dentist is IN! Its time to make an extraction....of $40 from your Credit card!

    This link will let you know the time of release.
    http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...stern%2Fd%2F-5

    The countdown threads are for us all to talk about the excitement we feel in the lead up to the release of each figure, and a great place to be in the last few hours for moral support!

    Countdown threads close as soon as the figure in Question is released On Matty.com. Its at this point the 'Post' release threads open eg- 'Sum All' 'Successfully ordered', 'Failed to Order' etc.

    Please Don't forget the 'Sum All Polls'
    THE LINK BELOW IS THE TIME THE NEXT MOTUC FIGURE GO'S ON SALE!

    Well, I hope the sale goes smooth. I never had a problem in the past, and had a really easy time getting He-Ro. I'd really, really rather not miss Adam and Orko.

    Yeah good luck to everyone. I really want Orko and Adam just hoping I don't need Fleabay afterwards.

    Molar is cool and I will get one down the line, but this is a big enough deal that I just want to concentrate on Orko and hope the few seconds difference gets me past WSOD

    I got Marzo, my first MOTUC figure, easily enough. I'm hoping to be able to grab Orko & Adam without too much hassle.

    Eagerly anticipating these figs!
    I''m going to try and get both sets, and probably a Plastic man as well.

    An interesting comparison I thought I'd post here (as being most relevant):

    I was just thinking "I wonder if the Hasbro SDCC exclusives are up for sale yet?" Counldn't find the date listed easily in a google search -

    So I went to Hasbrotoyshop, didn't see anything, so I put SDCC in their search and came up with the exclusives which had "add to cart".
    "Great," I thought "I'll buy some."

    I added the 2 transformers exclusives to my cart, had time to check their shipping policies and FAQ, (they now ship to Canada!), create a new account, confirm everything and proceed to checkout.

    Not once did I run into a RSOD or WSOD, get things taken out from under me (out of my cart) or have any problems.

    I don't know when these items went on sale, but they are still available for purchase. It was an easy shopping experience.
    Quite the contrast from Mattycollector.

    I hope it doesn't go as bad as Hasbro's just did. Mattel has a chance to come out looking like a king... or queen... whatever they want to be. It all depends on if they have a stock worth anything or if they just have 2 boxes sitting there.

    I'm TERRIFIED for this sale date!

    P.S. Does anyone know if the Polly Pocket: Dressed for Justice (Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl) set will be for sale on Matty?

    I can't find any info if it will or will not be.

    So who thinks Mo-Larr will sell out quick if he's just leftovers from SDCC? I was hoping they're would be a good number on sale at Matty.com. With server problems not even the early birds are safe come August 2nd.

    Looks like they changed the limit for each to 6 instead of 10. That's pretty cool.

    I'm not excited; nervous is the best I can manage. I really want to get Orko and Adam, because my daughter's started watching the Filmation show and she LOVES Orko. She's already reminded me several times to get him. I'm going to be really bummed if Digital River screws me out of getting a figure of her favorite character.

    good that should help make him last an extra 15 seconds. (he says then turns around and admits he plans to buy three)

    Orko is a must have for me so I really hope I get through. I want to get a couple extra so I can make Montork and Dree Elle but I get the feeling in additon to scalpers there'll be plenty of real fans thinking the same thing.

    At least I can relax a little. I just won an E-bay auction for both the Color change version and Mo-Larr. (One auction both sets) final bid $75- only $5 more than retail price for the rare only at the con version of Orko plus not having to waste time trying to snag Mo-Larr on the 2nd and risk missing out on regular Orko because of it. I'd say that's a good deal. Plus if I do miss out at least I have Orko in some form.

    Correct me if I'm wrong there is no difference between the Mo-Larr from the con and the website one right? It's just Orko who is different.

    Correct. Mo-Larr is the same.

    However, the retail price was $65 for both ($40 for Mo-Larr and $25 for Orko), so you paid $10 over. Still, a screaming good deal.
