I slept through the sale (and my alarm ) only to wake in a panic at 5.10 am (3.10pm EST). Thank the Goddess the figures were still there and not 'instant sellouts' and I was able to get an extra 2 Griffins and 1 SMAA (on top of my subscriptions). I now have a SMAA body for original mustache head ... I didn't even think of stockpiling for a future 200x unhelmeted head.
Thees longer sales are great for customers ... but what will they do to Toyguru's effort to convince people to subscribe in a months time if we can all buy figures so easily.
