    If the price holds steady I may go up to 6 sets that's in addition to my 2 sub sets. Or I may just get the 4 or 5 sets...

    I wonder if this will last awhile like the Snakemen set did or if it'll be gone in minutes.

    I suspect it will be far more popular than that. The snakes only had four distinct heads, but the troopers are robots, you can display 100 identical guys and it will still look ok. I'll try to buy five sets in total.
    Pasta la vista, baby!

    Hoping for some more NA figures in MOTUC... at least 12 more.!

    I'm hoping they made enough to compensate for increased demand. If these sell out in a few minutes, I think people will be quite angry.

    Loose: Sorceress, Whiplash
    MOC w/ mailers: Whiplash

    Honestly the only thing left that I want is a great Entrapta!

    Yeah. Mattel isn't keen on making more of something that sells out these days.

    They may have made more, but I would be really surprised if they made enough...someone on these boards is going to post a picture of an army of 80 or 90 in a few weeks....I know it!

    This .... is what has me fearing the WSOD.

    Plus, as far as Army Builders go, the Horde Troops have been requested since the 200x line, and more so with MOTUC.

    Like you said, you could have 100 of these bad boys and still desire more.

    The excitement and enthusiasm for these is phenomenal, so I think they will be a huge hit and will go quickly.

    I am confident they will take at least 3 hours to sell out, but thats if there are enough. If not, these could go quickly. I just hope all who wants them will get them. I will be ready to rock n roll at 11am next Tuesday, and I cannot wait to receive these guys!

    The price for the troopers has been corrected unfortunately, they're back up to $54.

    Which given that the Palace Guards are the same price, is not unexpected. Though why they were listed wrong in the first place.....

    I really don't understand how it's "lame" that the army builder 2pk price is at $54. Clearly someone accidentally put in the sub price instead of the day of sale price. It's that simple. They were never going to be $50 day off sale, not when the Palace Guards sit at $54.

    For some reason I thought that they were announced to be $50 day of, too.
    In any case I believe they should have made an exception for this particular army builder set. They produced it in a greater number than the previous sets and should sell it for $50 day of, as it will be mostly sub holders who will buy multiple sets. It feels unfair that I have to pay more for the extra sets I'm getting.
    Awesome sticker included!

    I really wanted to get three sets of Horde Troopers. Then I did the math and saw what my total for the month is going to be with Mantenna, Kowl and Dactys added on. OUCH!! I was thinking about Nepthu too, but there's just too much this month.

    I hope Matty is prepared for a LOT OF LOT OF Nepthus left over...

    So... not sell them for the standard day-of-sale markup... just to be nice?

    Fair is fair. You sub, you get the lower price. If you don't sub, you pay the actual price. $54 - that's how much they cost.

    I just hope they last long enough for me to get mine. I have the day off of work on the 15th to be online when they go on sale. I have one set coming from my sub, and I plan to get 7 more sets. 16 Troopers... woo-hoo! If a few months down the road they put the customer service stock up for sale, I may get another 2 to 4 sets.

    Well, despite all the worrying about the eye slit, the troopers still managed to sell out in 7 minutes.
    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things aren’t absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I don’t collect toys to be miserable. So I’d rather think about the things that do excite me

    lol yeah I never had any doubt they would sell out. Sadly it sold out in minutes so I missed the sale. Luckily I had the two sets from my subs.
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!
