    Oh. My. God. We are still waiting? BEcause they can't get confirmation on orders? Not a good sign.

    Take what risk? The same risk that they take during sub period in July where fans offer up their cc info and promise to pay monthly for sub items? Seems like the same process that this pre-order is based on, so why overtly question the reputability of bulk orders on any order different than you would onsey-twosey orders? I just don't get the logic. I know Matty wants to fool-proof their losses on this, but again if a fan were inclined to dump his 52 Grayskull order as soon as confirmation of the sub going through is made, he/she has essentially shot that whole plan to heck because Matty can always turn right around and cry foul, pulling the plug. Granted that would be a crappy move on their part, but anyone who has dealt with DR before knows crappy moves aren't out of the realm of possibility.

    At this point I just want to know one way or the other... even if that appears impatient to some.

    You don't think they check for fraud during sub orders and blindly take orders? This is the first time Scott has said anything about it.

    I'll make you a deal, extend the deadline for pre-order, and I'll order another one. Seriously, I will.

    Why do they not know by now? Just seems odd if you ask me.

    And honestly why can't Mattel just extend the deadlines? Even if it means a delay, why not? We're already set to wait over a year. Not like a couple more months would kill us.

    This line has already faced delays before.

    Well, Scott said why. They need to confirm that several bulk orders are real and the delay is because they aren't getting responses from those people. So, that's all pretty clear to most of us and makes perfect sense given the circumstances.

    Maybe they couldn't reach some of those people. They might be out for work, in a different time zone, etc.

    In any case, if the tweet was right, we would have seen something by now. It can't take thāt long to edit a simple video message.

    I really don't get it, if Mattel wanted to extend the pre-order until Jan 2013 if the minimum order was met on Nov12th, why don't they just keep it open until that January date?!!!
    Unless of course they wanna make sure that building a Prototype is feasible enough before yesterday's date! Either way, they're taking the cheapest approach with their uncanny logistics...

    I don't like to be a chicken-little, the-sky-is-fallingtype guy, but if the tally was so close that these orders are making all the difference, and they're still trying to figure out whether they're real or not, well, I have a feeling that we might not be seeing the castle. Bummer

    No risk, no reward. A big company like Mattel can afford to take a hit for He-Man esp. when they're serious enough to try to make a movie... but lets be honest... they're not an entertainment company.

    So big company, little line... but its way too much a risk a relatively small amount of money?

    Sell to Disney.

    I get the feeling Mattel doesn't want to break the bad news to us and they are trying to make some sort of consolation prize.

    For our pre-orders we will end get the cardboard mock-ups from the video!

    They are probably waiting for those folks which they left messages for to call back. Basically how many people work so they are not sitting by the phone. We would be lucky at this rate to know today. my guess is we will know the 16th around the time for the matty collector forums to go down.

    I am still waiting on slimer from my consolation for gb. I am going to remain hopeful that this will be good. But we have to expect if they are calling businesses or people and waiting for responses we might be waiting a bit. I am wondering if they are going to cancel the order if the people do not respond or just let it go forward anyhow if they do not get htrough to the buyer.

    Oh I know. The suspense is thick. Just getting antsy.

    Each "line" is its own little business. It is a giant company, yes. But it is made up of other businesses each of which must be profitable. Of course they cannot do things for he-man or he-man fans that are too costly or not smart economically because it would create a precedent that would infect other lines. C'mon people. Good business is good business.

    It's too much to wait for confirmation for something you've waited 30 years for?

    If it doesn't go through, I'll cancel my card just in case it does go through later.

    Come clean Mattel! Come clean!

    Why are we still using Digital River?! Digital River sucks and is horrible. It's a horrible web shopping service. Seriously. This sucks.

    This isn't a freaking election. We didn't pre-order with hanging chads.

    You kind of answered yourself there. As Scott explained it, they need to know now if it's feasible so they can begin sculpting in order to have it ready in time. Keeping the pre-order open is simply to allow them to get more orders in but that's a matter of how many they make with the mold. What we're waiting for now is if they have done enough to go ahead and make the mold. Scott said on the COTFO podcast that he believes if they hit around 97% or so they'll probably go ahead as it's almost a given the rest would be made up in the extra time.

    So did they hit 97% or not.

    The graph is honestly too close to their minimum mark not to extend the pre-order until January if they didn't hit the mark already.

    One thing I will give credit to where credit is due with this line, Mattel knows how to create sales through panic with He-Man fans

    I'd rather they take the time to confirm orders now,rather than have so many false orders blow up in their collective faces, forcing them to cancel or compromise on the finished product.
