    Isn't it a coincidence that both Swift Wind and BP She-Ra sold out in the same hour?
    Likely they got pulled.

    Swiftwind has been gone for a few days. They just corrected the "Almost Gone" to "Sold Out" for him. People kept trying to add him to cart and he wouldn't add...because he was sold out. The same problem happened with Clawful (I remember, because I was trying to order an extra for DAYS).

    Swift Wind was legitimate, She- Ra was not....That's all I'm gonna say


    Believe me if you want or don't, but I won't be dishing out details.

    I'm sorry Riddle of Steel, but I don't believe it. Hurricane Hordak took 14 days to sell out and Icarius from last month took 7 days. Why would they pull Bubble Power She-Ra on day 5 when she was selling very well? A lot of people were buying her for her body alone, but she was a full fledged variant with lots of new stuff.

    If they pulled her, why not pull the LAST DCUC figure from that wave? It doesn't make sense and I don't really believe it. You can only add 10 figures to your cart per order...so there isn't a way to tell how many figures they have in stock (unlike at ToysRUs.com, where you can check). It just kind of sounds like an attempt to prove she's not a popular figure...like when Bow sold out in 54 minutes and Catra sold out in 1 day 6 hours and people claimed he they were pulled, produced in VERY small amounts, etc.

    I got to the last page for ordering him on Saturday night, all I had left to do was the captcha. He was not sold out. I use firefox.

    POP in MOTUC isn't going away, boys.

    If anything, a quicker sale just helps support its inclusion.

    If they were pulled, well then they are just like all the OTHER figures then, right?

    Then why wasn't I able to order him using Firefox on Saturday?

    It makes sense that things would sell out after Friday (Pay day).

    It doesn't make sense that Mattel would pull either Swiftwind or She-Ra so soon after sale date (they've had discount sales like the upcoming Black Friday sale before without pulling things too early).

    Plus, why pull JUST the two MOTUC pop characters but NONE of their other stock? I tested the JLU 7-pack on Saturday because I figured there was a site-wide problem. Nope. Only Swiftwind was problematic.

    All I know is that Digital River screws up 90% of things.

    I remember when people were able to buy Sold Out figures by going through "Findmyorder.com"

    Nothing Digital River does surprises me anymore. They were supposed to create a ticket for an issue I'm having TWO separate times (and did not). The THIRD call they created the ticket...but nothing ever got done about it. I called today and the rep changed it from "normal" priority to "high" priority. Yep...that should do it. I was upset, but it's just too darn comical to take seriously any more. It's like we're all on Punk'd.

    Let's be adults ok?

    I never said you were lying, nor did I infer it. I was just asking why I used the same updated browser but couldn't add him to the cart.

    But it's fine. Every time a POP item goes on sale, I'm sure only 12 people but it.

    It's fine. POP and NA are just so lame lol.

    Don't get me wrong, Duke... I love POP! I dont care whether they sold out or got pulled. As long as they keep'em coming I'm a happy boy!

    Just to be clear, I like everything, and have no problems if someone doesn't like POP or NA or MYP characters or Filmation.

    I am a little bothered when people employ a double standard (not you - you're comment was totally appropriate considering how Mattel and Digital River pull items all the time).

    Well said guys and we can all look forward to seeing some more POP girls in 2012 I'm sure as I've got a gut feeling that we might be getting Frosta and Castaspella.

    reasonable sell out times on both swifty and bubble power; not too fast, not too slow. hopefully the same will be the case with the star sisters; looks like scott is on the ball with this.

    It's important to remember that Matty put out the WWE Rockers 2-pack today. People adding the last of the BP She-Ra's to their orders is not inconceivable.

    Again, I didn't insinuate anything. If you want to read my initial response that way, I would protest, but I can't stop you from thinking the way you do.

    I was trying to discuss why some of us, on the same browser, could order him and some could not.

    Plus, how were you "correcting misinformation?"

    Does that mean the handful of people who couldn't order Swiftwind are all incorrect?

    Go PoP!

    Now if only mine would ship...
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti
