    A good chance for people who have missed out.

    Especially on Mo-Larr
    We were specifically told that Dare would not be in 2014-2015, see the words straight from Scott here: http://forums.mattycollector.com/eve...808#9101046808

    That's cool. I have all of them but great for those that don't. I wonder how many people will buy Mo-larr just for the Skeletor!

    I know it should be exciting that their doing this sale, but I've got to admit to feeling a little bitter. I mean, it's great and all for those who missed out, but am I the only one who feels a slight kick in the pants over actually spending full price at the conventions or the post convention online sale? I mean, what's the point of an exclusive if, in fact, it isn't. Oh, and by the way, if you're patient enough you can get it for 20% off?!?!?! I know they're trying to unload stuff and still trying to make it feel "exclusive" due to the sale "only lasting 24 hours" (until the NEXT #tbt convention sale) but it still kind of sucks for the long haul supporters. I wonder how many people would have NOT purchased any of these "con-exclusives" had they known that eventually they could get said exclusives at a discount.

    You know what? When you buy collectibles, it's always a gamble. Sometimes the items will sell out immediately and roar up in price. Sometimes the manufacturers have a hard time ever unloading them.

    Notice that Cherry Flavored Hordak isn't on the list.

    You can't completely blame Matty for sometimes making figures which we don't buy.

    I never felt a rush to buy Goat Man. I'll probably grab him this week, at a discount. All is proceeding according to my plan. Bwahahahahahaha!

    On the other hand, I regret grabbing Total Justice Cyborg last year. He's just not a good figure.

    Considering the alternative is possibly not getting them or instead of 20% off paying 200% or more on the aftermarket? Nope, no regret buying them the first time around here. Now, if these had been on sale last week or even last month, and now they're 20% off, yeah that would be annoying as heck (and it's happened to me a lot of times... I've learned the inconvenient way never buy something at retail on Saturday unless it's on sale, because you never know what will happen on Sunday).

    It's funny - while people may be lucky enough to get Goat Man at 20% off - we don't know what that means. If it means 20% off the current base price of $27 then - it's pretty much the same as we paid when we bought him for $25 right?

    Also, what is the base price for Mo-Larr 2-pack to which the 20% discount will apply? I'm confident it will be more than the $10 I paid for 4 Mo-Larr 2-packs at Big Lots 2 years ago.

    20% off of $27 is actually $21 and change ($27-$5.40 = $21.60), so it's still a deal...

    Well, 20% off of $27 is actually $21.60. So that's actually 14% cheaper than the original price of $25 (not that figures are going for $25 anymore, so that's not really an issue). In fact, if you look at recent sold listings on eBay for Goat Man MOC, he is averaging between $35 and $45. Compare that to $21.60 plus shipping, and that looks like a deal to me.

    And unless you happen to know where someone can come across Molarr 2-packs on Big Lots shelves today, that's also pretty much a non-issue. Many people weren't collecting 2 years ago. Many weren't able to find any deals (because people were buying up 4 sets of 2-packs, for instance). Many just didn't live anywhere near a Big Lots store (like our international fans).

    And oh-by-the-way, that Skeletor buck looks an awful lot more appealing now than it did then. That alone could entice people to snag the 2-pack.


    To sum it up, we all appreciate your snark-but it is almost wholly misplaced, illogical, and uninformed in this scenario. Thanks for playing!

    I missed my Strobo because of a mail system snafu that sent the package back to Matty (and since by then the item was "no longer available", DR wouldn't send the package back to me and they just refunded me for the order). So finally I'll be able to get him (and this time I'll make sure to order a couple of them in separate packages). Plus I also need additional Hordak+Imp's.

    But why, oh, why did they have to choose this already hyperexpensive month to do this? With the must-have $25 Filmation Sountrack CD, must-have $35 Hover Robots, and must-have Mattel Art Book (collector edition over $100) all set to be released in rapid succession during in April (and I need two of each!), where are we supposed to get the funds to afford all of this, when half of it has been announced sometimes just a couple weeks or mere days before going on sale? Why is it so difficult for Matty to give us some advance warning of what's coming ahead?

    Someone please get me an Orko hat that I can magically take a few green wads out of.

    Maybe they actually sold out and/or have too small a quantity to sell? They've gone up a couple of times since their SDCC, if memory serves.
