    Which then means, that you'll end up paying the FULL shipping amount on *each* set as there's nothing to combine if it's already packed in 2 per box.

    Works great if you only buy one set, but no so much for 2+. Can't complain with the base price of the items themselves however.
    I think they were just clariffying that these will be each in a seperate box, and not a 2 pack. They should all ship together if you order more than one set.

    I think it's a great idea to get people into motu for two of the main figures. I agree that skeletor and battle cat should of been done as well.

    Yeah, if they did Skele & Panthor and BP She-Ra with Swifty I'd probably get those too.

    Cool, I may have to try to get this deal for my son, that way I can keep a MOSC He-Man for him, because he already has one he plays with.

    A couple other options would be....

    Skeletor & Panthor set for $30

    He-Man & Skeletor set for $20

    He-Man & Battlecat with Skeletor & Panthor for $60
    Recent.... Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
    Coming.... Mermista
    Wanted.... NA She-Ra, Double Mischief, Jitsu....
    Considering....
    Needed.... Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    It really depends. I wouldn't be surprised either way although I'm leaning to-wards the way I mentioned before.

    Only because not only does it sound that way *at least to me* but they do state that they have *limited quantities available.* Meaning that these seem to be set aside boxed up and ready to go.

    Sure...I know they always state that as part of the discloser, but it just sounds like they actually went in to their He-Man/Battle Cat stock, took out a certain amount and then boxed the two up as a pack in one box.

    They did the same thing for the Matty packs. Whether you ordered 1 or 100 *each* pack was it's own box, so if you ordered 100 packs you got 100 boxes. No items and *I think* shipping were ever combined outside of the designated pack.

    I WISH they had the pile of loot type option you describe. For subscribing, that should be something we are given as a courtesy. People would buy a lot more.

    As someone who collects MOTUC & DCUC & JLU, I often deal with double shipping... especially since there has been a new JLU three-pack every month for the past 3 months, and will be the rest of the year.

    I hate paying all that extra money for NOTHING. Yes, it's for shipping, but it's also for "handling," and that just burns.

While I don't need to get He-Man AND Battlecat, this is yet another surprise sale with little time to prepare.

    I know they were trying to coordinate this with the birthday, but they are marketing it to people who NEED to prepare, as this is one of the most expensive months this year.

    I feel like a hoarder but I am going to grab 3 sets I think. It's just too good of a deal to pass up. And now I can make the green tiger tribe.

    I really don't think so. This is to avoid people complaining about it not being a two pack when they get it in hand.

    You would think they would have this on the 15th so people could save shipping.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I'm paying shipping & handling on my Sub items, and on my day-of items.

    I won't do it again.

    ^This exactly.

    Lol. One would think that if it were anyplace else but Matty. They're trying to get you to buy some of their other slow moving essentials while you're there.

    Here's hoping for another early availability glitch.

    Not to sound like a *** but how much time do you need? I think a week is plenty of time. I will definitely be getting one or two sets...

    Exactly! They seem to not consider the substantial cost of shipping. While it may be "separate" to them, to the purchaser, it's part if the cost of the item. Their order numbers for this set may very well have doubled if they allowed combined shipping with at least the DOS items.

    That's all good if you have the money for these sudden purchases.

    Some people get paid every two weeks. Others get paid every month. These fans plan their purchases a month or a few ahead of time.

    Then how would DR be able to scam people into overpaying more on shipping?

    Um, some people get payed biweekly, some bimonthly, not everyone gets paid every week, and some people have bills due at different times of the month, a week to prepare for an unexpected sale of toys is not a lot of time, great for those who have a constant amount in their bank account....not for others.

    Just because one persons ability to have expendable cash at any given moment is there, doesn't mean everyone's is. Plus, there is a lot of figures on the 15th many likely have already committed to, sub or not. I for one am buying 3 figures and the WP....with shipping almost $100....um, I don't have enough cash left to buy figures I already have, even though my son needs him some Battle Cat, but BC is $33, and neither of us really need another regular He-Man.

    Not to mention....for some MOTUC is not the only line we collect....
    Recent.... Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
    Coming.... Mermista
    Wanted.... NA She-Ra, Double Mischief, Jitsu....

    It is a good deal, but wish I had known when I was getting my He-man about a month and a half ago. I am/was debating Battlecat and Swiftwind (not sure about Panthor), this would have made a great deal since I didn't really want more than one of a figure.

    Well, I'll be taking advantage of this. I have been saving money to buy He-Man, Skeletor, Panthor, Battle Cat for me, and Bubble Power, Original She-Ra (I already bought a Swift Wind) for my daughter. I just hope I can get them ordered in time and not have He-Man and Battle Cat sell out. These will be my first MOTUC purchases, I was going to order them today and came across the sale message, nice timing for me.
