    On Matty- Tung Lashor -No Longer Available

    They decided to change the SOLD OUT into No longer available.

    Smart move and it only took two days for him to not be available(for now) !

    Even the little things. "NLA" is much better, as it's a more accurate representation of the situation, as we know there will likely be more at some point.

    Isn't Sold Out and No Longer Available just semantics? Either way, you can't get one.
    Made it through Cyber Monday with everything I wanted, well, almost.

    Apparently not ... as it seems to appease some who feel "Sold Out" a misnomer phrase given that items often pop back up later. I'm personally fine either way-- as the product is unavailable at the present anyway-- but if you say potato I'll say poe-tah-toe...
    Harken the coming of Dragstor!!

    Hurricane Hordak is now "Sold Out" as well.
    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

    There are some who always felt itīs not appropriate to say Sold Out when there is still stock left. Mattel always admitted that they have a certain amount of figures for the first sale and some figures were held back for replacements and stuff like that.

    So if they stick to Not longer available itīs more clear for everyone but iīm sure they will have to explain them selves over and over agin but at least with that phrase it doesīt sound like a lie any more

    Matty is learning & IMHO making GREAT strides Post-Scott!

    Too many potential customers (at least Day of) would see SOLD-OUT only to go the secondary markets, Spend a BUNCH MORE $$$, only to have the same item appear & reappear at Mattycollector again, either at the same original Price, or in the past.....MUCH MUCH Cheaper during SALES w/ Discounts. I would get so perturbed when I would go to the Secondary market & pay WAY more $$$ for a mattycollector product that was "SOLD OUT" only to see it come back more times then *Shirley MacLaine! It took me awhile b4 I learned Scott's Tricks! I would have spent WAY more $$$ than I already did had it been explained to New/beginning customers that these items would/could be potentially back for the original price in future times!
