    Figures I'd like to see at reduced prices:

    - Demo-Man (I want another Alcala head for my DB Skeletor)
    - Snake Man-At-Arms
    - Horde Prime
    - Battleground Evil-Lyn
    - Gygor
    - Tytus
    - King Randor (the one I have is on a rather dented card)

    Hi Folks

    Does anyone know when the announcements are going up about sales? I keep looking around the different sites and I have yet to see anything. CGM is gone, Dekker is almost there as well as King Randor. I am just curious since I am starting to plan on what sites to hit for Christmas shopping next week and I really do not want to miss out on some sales. I am not sure when people actually get Thanksgiving off in the U.S.. I just know that some places shutdown for the week.

    Anyways post if ya know. Cheers.

    If they are doing a sale this year, we will get the announcement next week.
    It's an online website, they don't have to leak the information early.
    Part of the "fun" of the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale is being surprised by what's offered.
    The internet makes everyone wants the information immediately.
    Everyone should calm down and allow themselves to be surprised.

    I posted on the 14th asking about this on the AskMatty boards [IF] we were getting one this year. So hopefully they will reply as I also posted it on there matty facebook page trying to get it noticed more to possibly drum up a reply.

    So [IF] it happens this year, as soon as info comes up I am sure me, Max, or someone will post it asap.

    So no worries.

    Oh I love a good sale!!!!

    Looking at my BF order history I saved $10.61 (shipped) per single figure versus a DOS single figure (shipped).

    I saved $22.60 on the BF sale Palace Gaurds & Skeletor figure versus a DOS Swift Wind & BP She-Ra.



    We got retail figure pricing!

    ART PRINTS! Did you forget them folks? ART PRINTS!

    Last year it was really a madness on Cyber Monday! I really had a blast!
    Got 1 Mo-Larr & Skeletor pack, 1 Palace Guards pack and 2 Weapons rack at -50% (half price)! It was really interesting!
    During Black Friday, only the 2 weapons pack interested me but they were gone and the discount on all the items was not really interesting (-20% if I remeber correctly). -20% is always interesting, but for me who is from oversea I really need a great discount in order to reduce shipping costs!

    I really hope weapons packs (1 and 2) will be back this year!

    As far as i remember, last year Man-E-Faces and Captain Glen were available during Black Friday and Cyber Monday (they were available in August of the same year).

    I think the same may be true for this year (figures until August to be available for BF and CM). I don't think they will put Castle Grayskullman , Rattlor or any figures released after August 2012.

    I feel that the Star Sisters will be at the party! and even a special "Time Agent"

    Again? They reissued him last month, and he pegwarmed for a while.

    I'd much rather they re-released Castle Grayskullman, who so many people seem to have missed because of the unexpectedly superfast sell-out.

    Wow, I couldn't even get $40 for them. As such, I'm donating them to Toys for Tots. I've already filled up a quarter of one of the bins at TRU with random stuff I don't want anymore.
    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.

    This year my family is doing a secret Santa exchange so I have some extra money to spend on myself. Hoping to get optikk, flipshot, maybe roboto and an extra windraider. Let's see what comes up. Last year I got BG teela, Bow,1 weapons rack, 2 Palace gaurds and a partridge in a pear tree.

    Yes, really. They obviously need to clear them out and I need it. Pretty simple. Good luck on CGMan. I was able to get him DoS, but I know a lot of people that wanted him missed out. Seems like a longshot though.

    I would be happy to pay FULL PRICE for a shot at some of this year's figures I missed like Sorceress, Mekanek and Kobra Khan.

    If I remember correctly, Toyguru said last year just after 2011 Cyber Monday ended that, 2012 BF and CM might not have as much products and at those reductions (-50%).

    I so want to say in the futur "2012 Black Friday - Cyber Monday" thread : "I pulled the Trigger"

    For the ones from 2012 (if any are sold in a potential sale) it will be the customer service leftover stock. What I do wonder is what happened to CS stock for Shadow Weaver Surely she had some... and since no major problems were reported with Shadow Weaver, they surely have some left? Could they sell her, considering she was the sub exclusive?
    10 figures I'd like: 10/Filmation Tung Lashor, 9/Saurod, 8/Perfuma (for completeness of POP ONLY!), 7/Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina, 6/Peekablue, 5/Hunga the Harpy, 4/Sssqueeze, 3/Filmation Clawful, 2/Dylamug, 1/Queen Angella.

    Considering the "sub incentive" nature of that figure, I would bet not.
    Sadly, you can't divorce emotion from a toyline built on nostalgia.

    I think ToyGuru is selling them on ebay from time to time for 100$ per figure, pretending to make a profit with the Motu line.

    If Mattycolelctor sells Shadow Weaver as she was this year sub-exclusive, I think a lot of subscribers will be upset (and they will have the right to be). This will not be fair for them to have an exclusive figure for only 6 months.

    I think they might put her in the kind of deal they once made (when you purchased a secret pack wihout knowing what you could have inside).
