    October 14th Early Access Sale

    Bought giant Skeletor, SP Riddler, SP Superman, and Rorschach. Easy peezy.

    Same for me.
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    Just picked up a Riddler...

    40 bucks shipped! That's freaking nuts! I'm glad that's the only one I really want from that line!

    There's no way these DC figures are selling well with that price point. Especially Mr. Mxyzptlk.
    Need stuff? I might just have it!

    I'm flopping back and forth on getting Giant Skeletor. I mean, if I got any of them, it would be him. But WHERE WOULD HE GO?! I've got no room for display. I mean, I could afford him...but should I? HHMMMMMM.

    I know what you mean, but the only one I will buy is a Giant Scareglow... For this price, a giant glow in the dark ghost skeleton is the only thing that gets my money.

    If you don't plan to display him right away, the mailer box is actually surprisingly small. It's about the size of two MOTUC mailers.

    Ordered a full set of the other three SP figures for a friend, and ordered myself a Mxyzptlk, with a side amount of self-loathing for spending that ridiculous amount of money for what is, effectively, an accessory. I just keep telling myself there are only two more DC figures left, and I'm done.

    As a California resident I have always been taxed on every purchase from Matty Collector ever... so welcome to the club.

    and not that it matters but DR ships the product from Ontario, CALIFORNIA, USA - not from Canada. If they were shipping things from Canada the exorbinant price for shipping to Canada would be even more outrageous.

    so true... i mean we have a Mattel outlet in Mississauga which is just outside of Toronto, and if they were shipping from Canada and changing me these prices with these waiting times.. i'd be ringing some heads
    mind you i do remember in the very beginning he-man in 2008 on the back it said Mississauga Ontario Canada, always found that strange why that was on the packaging.. i don't see that any longer.

    also everything is shipped from Sweden this is why it takes 40 days to arrive from CA

    I can't wait to get the think ahead bundle this holiday, I'm looking forward to all these little minis.

    With those cheap DCU figures being 30 bucks a pop, I just don't understand why people think the MOTU Giants are overpriced. They are epic in size.

    I picked up two Giant Skeletors. Going to be awesome to see some of these guys side-by-side!

    I hope they get around to Man-E-Faces, Teela, Trap Jaw, Evil Lynn and Faker.
    Pop Culture Shock - Filmation Statues (top 5 most wanted): Sorceress, Skeletor, Man-E-Faces, Mer-Man and Two-Bad! AND, hurry up with Evil Lynn, her reveal is what got me started.

    I got a new shelf that I am dedicating to 12" 1980's goodness. I' m just picking up a few 12" MOTU as well as a few 12" Gentle Giant Star Wars and GI*JOE figures. I only have a few so far and they look great in a nice shelf display.

    On that note, I picked up Giant Skeletor.

    Tried it again this month (giants sub gives me early access), and it actually worked (last month I went in and none of the SP figures showed up). Got the three DC figures and the MOTU mini set.
