    Not surprised it went down to the wire. We are talking about a $300 commitment or more if you think about it.

    Even for a premium collector item a year away it's a lot to ask for..

    If they packed a figure with it, I think that could've helped out. Like Defendor.

    I really wish Matty would have offered a free Castle Grayskullman for the first and last pre-orders! That would have been a cool incentive!
    Take it easy,
    Drew

    Looking for: deals on MOTUC Roboto, King He-Man, Meckaneck, Zoar (from Sorceress) and more!
    Have to trade: A couple MOTU vintage, GIJOE (vintage 3.75 inch and 25th Anniversary figures and vehicles), Star Wars, Transformers (movie line), and Marvel Universe and a few Marvel Legends, plus MORE!.

    It doesn't look like the minimum will be reached.

    I'm not so sure. They update that meter; it doesn't do it in real-time, so we could've already met the goal, and with the 2013 Sub Drive, even though they said midnight was the cutoff, they kept taking orders for several hours after that, and guess what... THE PRE-ORDER PAGE IS STILL UP! So even if you couldn't get your order in on time, you still have a chance, but hurry! We don't know when they'll have to pull the plug: http://www.mattycollector.com/DRHM/s...ctID=258165100

    according to the numbers we got on the preorders board an using 50 per day as the average to make it rise 1 maker per day. we gained 3 tonight alone. which should put us somewhere above 90%

    When I mis-entered my credit card number with spaces it said that's not a valid number.

    Digital River has never been good, reliable service for the store.

    I think they just mean making sure the bulk orders are from legit buyers like online seller, etc., instead of someone making a bulk order to push the project into production with a plan to cancel the card later to avoid paying.

    I wouldn't say that.. the meter hasn't been updated for a couple of days, and Scott just talked about bulk orders having been placed... those likely haven't been included in the meter update.

    Do it!!! The sale page is still live. On the latest episode of The Council of the First Ones at around the 24 minute mark, Scott said that if they're really close, 90-95% it's pretty likely they'l go into production.

    It's all part of the theatrics! Scott will want to announce the news himself, not have us work it out simply by looking at a Thermometer Jpeg. We'll be kept waiting until they're ready... probably in a video with party blowers and streamers.

    If I'm reading the pre-order info correctly, we had to reach a minimum goal by 11/12/2012, but if the goal was met, the pre-orders would continue until 1/3/2013. So, if the page is still up, we are either really close, and hoping they can get the rest of the necessary orders by January, or we met the goal, and what ever is ordered between now and Jan 3rd is just bonus orders for Mattel.

    Is 72 a magic number? That are a few Castles. Wonder how many BBTS bought. Somebody said you could preorder 1000, but I doubt they preordered that many.

    It's half a gross, or twice six by six. So, yes, I'd say it's at least as (if not more) magic a number as decimal-minded 50 or 75—although 60 would be a more magic number. MotUC figures are bulk packaged by the double dozen, so that order would be for 3 bulk packages, if it were of regular figures rather than humongous castles.

    Wouldn't surprise me if it made it weeks ago and all of this is just showboating from Scott to sucker in more sales.

    well the order page is still up... so I figure folks have until January to order one... which is good. I have to see how much insurance is going to cover for my Sandy damage. I should know by January, if all is good I can get a CG.
