    Mattycollector... any parting gift??

    So... how would you guys sum up this year end period at Matty
    The latest reports we could get from DR's & Mattel's employees seemed
    to contredict themselves about the fate of possible out of sub items
    planned to be out this month.
    As for the usual discounts we got used in the past,
    on this very same period (Black Friday/ Cyber Monday Sales)
    well, nothing seems to happen either...
    So? Any idea of the most plausible scenario to come anyone?
    Holy Grail of a lifetime:
    Mask Of Power - Lodar - Kex Queen - Krrylak - Quakke - Hoove - Staghorn - Shezar - Tataran - Kothos - Melog - Saryn (Evil Witch) - Dylamug -Slob-Boar - Ra-Jar - Odar - Garn (Mini-Comics) - Robowoman - Major Header - Saw-Tooth - Prince Dakon - Ever-Mean - Karg - Muck Man - Missile Toe

    This is pure speculation, but I can imagine a push to clear out some old inventory (basically, what's available now in the shop) during Black Friday / Cyber Monday week. I don't think we'll be seeing any new "out-of-sub" items until Super 7 has the reins.

    How much discount (and free shipping) do you expect we'll get??? If they want to clear out all those Hydrons, Floggs, etc??? at least 50% off? Maybe more?

    It's going away. Let's consider that the gift.

    ...oh, you mean in terms of sales...hopefully we get BF/CM again with the free shipping option.

    Every time you purchase 6 copies of Flogg you'll get 1 free. And 5% off an AE He-man.

    I expect free shipping and deep discounts for USA based customers. Any limited items such as Filmation He-Man will only be sold to US based customers due to geo blocking.
    At this point I just HOPE for Dylamug and Hunga the Harpy!

    When they cleared out the DC stuff, it was about $6 per figure (for the stuff that hadn't come out that year). Don't know if they'll go that low, I expect them to not even put in the effort to put up a BF/CM sales page and just ship them all off to the Mattel store instead, that would require the absolute least amount of effort.

    I actually had imagined they could go even deeper ... say 75%
    on the very unappealing merchandise, so they can make one last try to get rid
    of their embarrassing stock before they have to address it for more than nothing to
    retail stores.

    Maybe they'll just post a photograph of Mattel employees flipping the bird while standing behind unreleased prototypes.

    Retail stores? Like Big Lots? That won't happen Scott already said any unsold stock by the time Matty Collector closes will be sold off at the Mattel store in CA.

    I said that could happen. Not that it would. But it is a viable option.

    I hope they do a nice clearance sale, but I feel like the last time they did it, Scott was still there. It seems like it's such a skeleton crew that they'll just dump it all through their discount channels rather than put in any more hours toward an extra sale. Maybe Toyguru could chime in on that?

    Also as Scott is no longer at Mattel, it's just educated conjecture. Certainly a good possibility, but Scott can't speak authoritatively on what WILL for sure happen not being in the drivers seat, as he said.

    I'm hoping for 75% off Point Dread and free international shipping!

    But, I can easily see them just shipping all left over stock to an outlet store (Mattel or otherwise), rather than having to dedicate extra resources to managing special events / sales when they seem to be having trouble with the regular monthly sales.

    I have an idea that we as fans should give matty collector and digital jerk wads... How about when they try to clear out inventory and sell things off. We give a great big ole middle finger to them and boycott them on black friday and cyber monday. This way they have to take a small beating on unsold merchandise. I know that's wishful thinking but just my suggestion. It'd be a nice way to say get bent MC and DR for the awful customer service these past years.

    Yeah. At this point, I would expect absolutely nothing from the clowns at Mattel. Enjoy(?) your Nov and Dec sub items, folks, cuz that's all she wrote. Honestly, I'm just relieved that it's finally over and we don't have to deal with them anymore.
