    Kobra Khan is gonna be late - Webstor, Clawful and Buzz-off re-issues

    From Matty Collector News page:

    Masters of the Universe® Classics

    Kobra Kahn™
    Club Eternia® Figure of the Month (included with 2012 Club Eternia® subscriptions): The slithering servant of Hssss is joining the MOTUC lineup for March, but please note that due to the Chinese New Year, his shipment is coming in multiple parts. All shipments should be received in our warehouse about a week after the 3/15 sale. Once he's processed, subscriber orders will ship first, followed by orders placed during the regular 3/15 sale. Please allow an additional 7-10 days to receive any order that includes Kobra Kahn™.

    Reissues
    Also making appearances in the MOTUC lineup for March are reissues of Webstor™, Clawful®, and Buzz Off®.

    There goes my countdown thread

    I thought Mattel said they wouldn't sell a figure until it was in the warehouse after what happened with Demo-Man

    Hmm yeah, I thought that was the new rule as well. Oh well. Not the worst delay, but not great either. I'm really looking forward to this fig and the extra days are going to make waiting for him that much harder! Good problems to have.
    END OF LINE

    Due to my buttocks sounding like a flute, Augusts monthly figure is being pushed out to September. Thanks to Kwanza we missed December. WTH!

    It's no joke, they take like 2 weeks off and everything shuts down.

    Well that's unfortunate news, but out of the three reissues I need two so that's pretty cool.

    Another delay? Why did they not have regular delays like this for the past couple of years? All of a sudden they're lousy with them!

    Well, it is cool that we're getting a decent amount of notice...and I'm VERY glad that they're not just pushing him to the next month.

    Also, I'm hoping to pick up some Spy Monkey Armory sets at WonderCon on the 17th, so I have NO doubt that those will keep me happily occupied until Khan shows up!

    I think you'll be happy you did--I wasn't really looking forward to him at all but had a sub, and once I got him in hand my mind was completely changed!

    Oh boy. This news doesn't bother me at all, it's the wave of negativity that will inevitably follow...

    The first year or so was great when one figure was delayed, they just moved another figure up one month to ensure we always had a monthly figure. Now they're doing a lot more at any given time and I think it's a bit more than they can chew.

    After calling matty about what happend to my ss, they said to me that she was send out 17 february because of delays of some of the ss shipments from China.

    Having two subs and a email with shipping notification for 18 january I find the 'we don't ship our figures anymore when not everything is in our warehouse' a lot of lies.

    Do they celebrate chinese newyear every month or don't they remember what they said?

    At least we get notice this time but that's a drop on a hot plate.

    The saga continues... sigh...

    At least it's only 1 awesome vintage character in Kobra Khan this month....unlike last month's extremely painful long wait for Shadow Weaver, Fisto, and Sorceress.
