    Gwildor is SOLD OUT !

    Wow!

    I really underestimated him. Yes, he looks better than the vintage figure but he sold out really fast and Mermista and Spinnerella aren´t even ALMOST GONE yet.

    I am stunned

    Nice. I'm glad I bought him.

    Well, there's sold out and then there's Matty's sold out. Don't be surprised if he resurfaces next year.

    Yep. Despite Gwildor's mixed popularity, his status as an all-important Vintage character and the 4H's killer sculpt helped him.

    Always happy I've got a sub! Not surprised at all that Gwildor sold out. He's vintage and it's an amazing sculpt!
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    Doesn't his MOTU '87 status affect his sales? What was the final word on Blade? I gotta check Blade's going rate on Ebay.

    There are lot of figures I am going to dump that I don't want from my sub. Only a few I like and Gwidor isn't one of them. Here are the ones I am planning on getting rid of:

    Gwildor
    Arrow
    Flutterina
    Hydron
    Glimmer

    Those are the ones I don't need.

    Not surprising, but in my opinion it had more to do with the fact that, per Scott, Gwildor had extrmemely limited stock available for Day of Sale than it was due to popularity.

    That's what I was going to say. He was supposed to have a much more limited stock than a regular figure. While vintage does tend to sell better, we saw a few months ago with Rio Blast that not all vintage figures are immune to slow sell times.
    Most wanted figures: TUSKADOR!!! Vultak, Dylamug, Quakke, Lizzor, Crita, King Miro, Granita, Sagitar, Despara, Darius, Hawke

    While it's true they usually put up extra customer service stock later on, with this fast of a sell out, I don't think there's going to be much of him left.

    I think one of the reasons was the design flaws in him. I like to display all the "looks" so normally I would have gotten at least one extra of him, if not more. Since his "buttoned up" look didn't work, I didn't waste the money - particularly with the shipping added. I may still pick one up if I ever see one cheap sometime, but if it hadn't been for the poor design work once Mattel got hold of him, I'd already own at least two.

    As to Gwildor, the rumors of his unpopularity are greatly exaggerated. He's vintage, first of all, so the silent majority out there who is in it for vintage obviously scooped him up. It's also only a small contingent of folks who have some animosity toward him - a lot of times, they overlap with the folks who dislike Orko. Because, you know, how dare any character not be super-serious, they all should be like, you know, Ram-Man, Fisto, GELDor, Snout Spout...

    Yep. There's always CS stock held onto for returns. He's practically guaranteed to show back up at some point.

    And here's hoping for the return of Power-Con!

    Cannot wait for this guy to show up. Best head sculpt in the line imo. I wish the line all shared his level of detail.

    Im a little surprised, but honestly, he was a great looking fig. So it makes sense. Guess the 1980's movies fans wanted him enough!
    Made it through Cyber Monday with everything I wanted, well, almost.
