    Great news but still took about a week. I don't think they should do another He-Man/Skeletor reissue for AT LEAST another year.

    all the cyber monday toys are listed as "sold out". probably because the sale ended 12/5 at 11:59.

    True. I doubt we've seen the likes of Skeletor.

    Skeletor sold out because the Cyber Monday sale ended. He didn't truly "Sell out", just like all the others didn't. Please try to re-word thread titles to not be as misleading in the future.

    Thank you!

    Looks like I was right about the Jungle in the Justice pack. If it wasn't for the Color of Fear pack, I would have waited a few days into the sale to get the JitJ one, as I predicted it would be there all week.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I just wonder now what they will do with the rest of the Skeletors that are left over.

    They'll sell them at NYTF or SDCC.

    So is Skeletor the first figure to not sell out?

    If I'm not mistaken it was Tri-klops or Zodac...I think goddess is also still not sold out...but that's getting into a gray area considering it's all supposed to be inventory held for returns.
    My MOTUC top 10 wants (POST SDCC 2014):

    Queen Angella - Hunga the Harpy - Peekablue - Toy Catra - Veena - Red Knight - Vultak - Dylamug - Sibyline - Kex Queen

    They yanked the original runs of He-Man & Beast Man after three weeks.

    Well... surely, this is a bit disappointing, right lads?

    I was quite certain that ol' Skelly would sell out... But I guess not. Better wait with He-man Skelly ( or maybe just skelly then..?) rerelease for another year.

    This doesn't quite bode well for Battle Armour Skelly tho..

    According to Matty when my GG broke several months ago, they do not have any availalbe anymore for exchanges.

    At the time, I did buy their reasoning that they always wanted to hold back a small amount of quantity for returns, cons, etc.

    But since then, I really believe it was done to not let fans get any ideas about combining shipping from month to month.

    Who knows if they'll reissue him at all again at all if this release didn't sell out. It would be nice if they do, but who knows for sure. If they do, it may just be the "leftovers" from this sale.


    The thing to keep in mind is that in addition to previous re-releases, Skeletor has been readily available in the DC/MOTU 2-packs as well.

    Granted, He-Man has been available that way, too. But many people seemed to actually prefer the look of Skeletor from that 2-pack even more so than the regular Skeletor figure. The only real downside is the lack of the accessories, but perhaps some people either did without them or found some way around that.

    In the case of He-Man, while the TRU version is pretty cool (and it's easy to paint and make a very Filmation-esque He-Man), the purple/pink dots around his belt and the lack of his power sword (an accessory that for many almost defines He-Man) might make his standard version much more tempting to spend the extra money on than Skeletor's for those who already had the 2-packs but didn't have the standard versions.


    I don't think this is bad for BA Skeletor, necessarily. I think many will still want him.

    Lol! I recently read that they have some goddess figures left and they're looking to put her up, I think it was on the Q&As...
