    I am kind of surprised. I mean, I know some people super love her and I called her a customizer's dream base, but there were a bunch of people out there saying they didn't want her at all.

    However, regular Teela has never been re-issued, so that could be another reason she's going so fast! People getting into collecting need a Teela. That's just a thought...I don't think hoards of people are buying her just to have a Teela...but I could be wrong.

    Yes and No, it depends. She is not beating Trap Jaw but has whipped Buzz Off and Battle Armor Skeletor if things continue

    If she sells out in the next 2hrs or so she I believe will be the 2nd fastest selling MOTUC of 2011 (only behind Bow who sold out in under 1hr)

    Yeah exactly, lets have her sell out and then we can find how successful she was.

    But things look extremely well since most of the MOTUC in 2011 has not went to Almost Gone as quick as BG Teela

    That's true. it's so weird when they linger in the almost-gone-zone like that. But in BGTeela's case i think she'll be sold out by the end of the day.

    I agree. I was hoping she'd last a few days, the Government would force Canada Post back to work and I could make my non-sub order.

    Not really. Say the threshold for "Almost Gone" is when 90% of the total amount put on sale has gone. Given the R/WSoD and so on, MotUC sales have typically been incredibly front-loaded, with just about everyone desperate to get a figure (over and above any subs) piling on in the first hour or so. It then makes perfect sense that, with all the pent-up demand gone, the last 10% or so would go at a far more measured pace.

    I mean if anyone thought that this figure would not sell quickly needs to look at how when the first Slave Leia figure came out. It took months to meet the demand for her. And even the ones they made afterwards still sold! Female figures always sells if it's a core character! And MOTU has 4 core female characters, Teela, Evil-Lyn, The Sorcerss, and Queen Marlena. And now all we need is one more! Which we better get next year!

    Not to mention historically in this line female figures have sold quick regardless of affiliation (meaning core or not)

    The only one that had trouble was The Goddess

    i don't want to start another production numbers debate, but the quantities must have been lower for this figure ... surely? ...

    i know this may sound disrespectful and biased (hey, i'm a vintage guy ) ... but, i dunno ... i just have a feeling ...

    this wasn't exactly an ''a-lister'' (i hate using that phrase by the way ... ) ...

    Maybe, maybe not. Teela has never been reissued and its been 2 years since she was last available in any form (and then you had Teelagate where numerous orders were cancelled and Digital River had a massive screw up).

    Production numbers keep going UP though. Keldor probably had fewer units than Battleground Teela. Also, technically, she is an "A-lister." This is one of the A-list variants that Mattel keeps touting in their Q&A's. Even though BGTeela never had a figure before, she is vintage...being from the 80's comics and all.

    valid points, sir ... i guess i could understand a regular teela selling out pretty quick ... i just haven't felt much 'hype' surrounding this figure this month ... perhaps because i haven't involved myself in it? ... ...

    I think the quarterly's are produced in lower numbers than the regular figures though. They are supposed to be variants usually with significant parts re-use. Not that it matters per se, but it would surprise me if they think the quarterly figures will sell just as well as the regular figures.
