In regards to Vikor's quick sell out, Matty's Response on Facebook is a perfect example of what fans want done that is not being done:
As Emiliano and others have pointed out in the Vikor thread, why was this not mentioned before today? Only hours after the fact was it brought to light, but by then it only served to pour the proverbial gas on the fire and not fan the flames. This isn't the first time this has happened, and if past history serves as any indication, this may not be the last. A simple courtesy goes a long way, you know.Darn those blustery Northern winds! They’ve waylaid our second Vikor shipment for the moment, but we expect it to land at our warehouse soon. As soon as we confirm its arrival, we’ll have more Vikor figures for sale.
And while I'm at it, I kindly ask that Matty be upfront about the error instead of trying to make light of the situation, ie. the 'Northern Winds' comment. Personally, there are way more important things in life to be angry about than plastic toys, but I certainly understand the frustation here. That comment, while lighthearted and trying to bring a little levity to the situation, again (at least in my own opinion) only seems antagonistic. Anyway, I've said my peace .
