    Unfortunately, they underperformed. There will be no Star Sisters in 2013, but they may be re-evaluated for 2014.

    2 days 1 hour 46 minutes, not bad for figures priced at $66.00 that apparently no one wanted. Once again POP has proven to be POPULAR, hopefully Toyguru will take the hint and start giving us other POP characters since they always sell really well.

    GLIMMER & FROSTA for 2012 please

    I agree! I hope for individual releases with their missing accessories and released in different years. Every other year would be cool. I feel these are realistic expectations/hopes.

    Of course, a sell out means complete failure to Mattel.

    I want toy accurate single carded Star Sisters as well (in the far distant future where Mattel can properly duplicate the 4 Horsemen prototypes 100%), but you and Tallstar ... LOL

    Well...we kind of already did see the variants, because the majority wanted the versions that weren't made.

    Sold Out? Sure, I believe it. Whatever Matty says must be true. See ya on Cyber Monday.

    We might start seeing Star Sisters variants before we see another vehicle. After all, they outsold the Wind Raider.

    Honestly, I don't know if I even care about what the true story is anymore. All I know is that Mattel publicly made a statement about the success level of the Star Sisters, and from my perspective they need to accept responsibility if fans now think variants are possible.

    I don't necessarily disbelieve that the Star Sisters did in fact sell out.

    But, I think this speaks more to the lowered production numbers for 2012 subscription items than to their outright popularity. I think the Star Sisters were probably less popular than most of the items that will go up for sale on MattyCollector over the next 6 months. There wasn't any WSOD to deal with on the Matty site at 9:01 am pacific - that never happens. There was 15 minutes or more of WSOD for Demo Man and BGEL and Demo Man didn't sell out for 5 days. If site traffic volume is anything to judge by it was production size and not popularity that drove this sellout.

    I think Mattel greatly reduced the number of items available for day-of-sale purchase.

    I think the proof will be in the pudding next month when we get monumental WSOD lag times trying to get Fisto and Sorceress and both of those sell out within an hour.

    The only reason they we won't be back to the 10 minute sell out for those guys is because the new waiting room doesn't allow for that - but I predict we're going to start seeing sellouts in under an hour again as of next month.

    Yeah, sure they aren't. If these sold out, someone should direct all the fans who missed out to the market place where there are multiples on sale at cost or below that aren't getting a sniff.

    How could they sell out when certain people on this forum don't like them?

    Please let's be done with the Star Sisters and just move on after this 3-pack. If they stick their variants back in the subscription in future years I will be none too happy. I know there are some vocal supporters of getting the toy versions made, but if they do that I hope it's outside of the subscription to see if the Star Sisters can really stand on their own. I don't think they can. The Mighty Spector is probably going to sell out because of the 30th subscription but in no way will that speak to demand for the figure.
