    Shipping was $19.65
    What shipping method did you use?

    It just says Shipping.

    Didn't have an option during check-out (I'm in Georgia, if that matters). Email confirmation says "Shipping & Handling", Invoice just says "shipping".

    I'm assuming it's the slowest option. I chose the cheapest option for my subs, so maybe that was a default carryover.

    The thermometer has gone up a little. Only a little, though. Do you honestly think it will make it?

    I do. I agree wit a previous poster, sorry I can't recall the name or I would give credit, they aren't going to show a higher amount until people buy and buy. I'm not concerned. I did expect it to be higher, but it's a good start I suppose. It probably isn't representive of a true real time (or even close) number though....

    I got my order in. Just 1. I'm saving the cash for it but I just can't justify buying two.

    If that is it so far, this is NEVER going to happen. That said, Mattel will purposefully keep this lower than it really is in an attempt to drive up sales, so we won't really know the truth until the very end when pre-orders have closed.

    Who is willing to bet their life that that thermometer is accurately reflective of sales?

    Ok. First, the subs were the same way, we were nowhere near goal at first and chipped away through the entire window so this is in no way an indication of the likelihood of it going through or not. Second, we have no knowledge of when those results are taken from. They update it randomly. It has been for sale for 29 hours, so let's all relax a little.

    I don't need 2, and I only plan to keep one. I just wanted to do all I could to help the cause!

    I'm certain that by the time they ship, there will be plenty of people that want one that didn't pre-order. I'll have no problem unloading it for cost+shipping.

    Well, first of all, let's all agree that this thermometer is updated to set increments manually at random times and is in no way any sort of scale or in any way actually readable.

    That said. If this is like past thermometers from Matty, then each update will jump the same amount. The "bulb" is completely out of scale with the rest of the thermometer in terms of size, but if each bump is equal to the same amount of sales, then the first and second bump both represent the same amount of purchases. The closest thing we have to a "measure" is that the most recent bump added four dividing lines.

    If, and once again if, this has any basis in consistency. That means each upgrade will represent the same number of sales and go up the same amount on the thermometer; four dividers. We have had two bumps so far. If further bumps go up four dividers each, that would be six more bumps.

    2 out of 8 bumps would mean we're roughly 1/4 of the way there in just over 24 hours. Not bad if true. Especially if some folks come back now that shipping has been addressed. But that's assuming there's even a modicum of critical thinking in the design of this thermometer, which I make no claims towards. This is all very fuzzy math based on very poor information.

    If it moves up each day at this rate we'd actually hit the minimum in a little over a week. We have till November 10th to hit this mark. I'm optimistic we'll get there…and then the rest of the year's sales on it will just be gravy.

    I agree my friend. I have a good feeling about this.

Am i missing something here? maybe new collectors who join the line after the pre-order date ends. And its not like ppl can say well i don't have the funds right now!! its zero down...u have a whole yr to save up.

    Funny thing is I just checked BBTS and the max you can add to cart now is just over 160 so people are pre-ordering them. So either people are confused or have not read the Matty page and think that Matty is charging cards for the pre-order. Just goes to show that there are legions of fans out there that just don't pay attention to any news and just order stuff as it appears on BBTS. This should really boost sales for the core figures that are for sale on the site as well. You have to have He-man and Skeletor to fight over the Castle

    255!!!! AWESOME!!! I know the thermometer is most likely not as accurate as one would hope...but based on a certain number needed by upper management i would not be surprised if they are requiring 1000 CG's to be cost productive...which means we still have a long way to go....but fingers crossed!!!

    I am betting it is way more than 1000 that need to be pre-ordered. More likely closer to 7K - 10K
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    2,500,000? Could be, I mean, I have no clue what a production like this would require. If so, let's hope that 7000 fans just arent posting here. I can't wait to see the next thermometer update!
