    As for Castle Grayskullman, I highly doubt he will be part of the sale. I think it will only be figures from August 2012 and earlier. The September, October and November figures from this year are very unlikely to appear. I expect to see figures like Palace Guards, Gygor, Vykron, Horde Prime and Star Sisters to be the ones offered in abundance. Basically the ones nobody wants other than the hardcore who already own them.

    The flash sales figures will be probably be the ones with very limited customer service stock (Teela, Tri-Klops, Webstor, Whiplash, Man-E-Faces, Trap Jaw, Sorceress, Kobra Khan, Catra, Bow, Hurricane Hordak etc...)
    I Agree

    I am pretty sure your bang on when it comes to what is available. I will be very surprised if we get gems right away. But we could be wrong. My feelings is that now with everyone saying that the line is coming to a close (sad really) we may actually see anything and everything on sale this year so that they can move out all the remaining stock. That way they will have more space in the warehouse for other future toylines as well as for anything left over from the 2013 figures.

    Toyguru already has stated that as of 2013 there will be less re-issues of past figures throughout the course of the year. With that being said, I think we will be seeing A LOT of product this coming few days.

    Completely untrue? First of all, it was other people who reported that they got charged for the return shipping costs; so you're calling them liars. Secondly, you're lucky if your figures regularly arrive within the 30-day window so you can request a replacement. Just today (36 days after the sale) I finally received Cy-Chop and the Weapons Pack, and I'm still waiting for Rattlor, Frosta, Poison Ivy, King Grayskull, BA He-Man and Trap Jaw; so even if I needed a replacement (I've had my DB Skeletor come with ugly paint issues and a totally messed-up half-unprinted minicomic), I'll be out of luck.

    Usually, during black friday and cyber monday you don't have new items. ONly items which were available previously o n mattycollecotr.

    So you will have to wait until December the 17th if they still have some in stock

    I think they completely sold out of Fisto and Sorceress. You can't even get an exchange for them.

    I went to Digital River headquarters to complain about missing those two from my subscription, and they told me in person that there was no way they could get them to me.

    • Vykron™ “Tank Top”
    • Vykron™ “Space Ace”
    • Catra
    • Snout Spout
    • Battleground Evil-Lyn
    • Mer-Man
    • Faker
    • Battle Armor Skeletor
    • Zodak
    • Temple of Darkness Sorceress

    (and I'd bookmarked the page yesterday and NONE of them were listed as coming soon)

    If it's a sign of what will actually be on sale, I'm psyched about potentially grabbing the Snout Spout I missed plus TOD Sorceress!

    Updated... Found a few more "coming soon" on these pages:

    http://www.mattycollector.com/store/...oryID.52440400

    • Draego Man
    • Fearless Photog
    • Hurricane Hordak
    • Leech
    • The Mighty Spector
    • Icarius


    I claim no responsibility though if some or none of these wind up being part of the sale!!!

    What about the people that actually have a job and are at work at 9AM???

    It would make more sense on Friday when more people are off and because it's Black Friday

    Way to go Matty!

    Once again all of the re-sellers will get the good figures and the one's that people need will be gone...

    Mismanaged again.....

    Charged for return shipping? How? Seriously you cannot charge a customer for returning defective product. I'm afraid your gonna have to quote these folks who are being charged for returns...

    I just got Rattlor today. My figures do not arrive within 30 days, but I still managed to get a replacement Swiftwind. Legally Mattel/DR have to replace a defective item or provide a full refund. I don't care what new garbage Toyguru decides to make up. Perhaps the distance selling laws are different country to country, but I know under UK law I'm covered.
    10 figures I still need: 10/Peekablue, 9/Sssqueeze, 8/Lizard Man, 7/Hunga the Harpy, 6/Gwildor, 5/Filmation Clawful, 4/Mermista, 3/Tung Lashor, 2/Dylamug, 1/Queen Angella.

    Wow, there are definitely a few I would be willing to get right away if they pop up Draego Man, Webstor, Catra, and Moss Man. Also interested in Faker, Marlena, Fearless Photog, MAA, Man-E-Faces, and Clawful, but could wait for a flash sale on those.

    They did not charge them directly, they simply did not pay them for the return shipping charges, so they had to bear that cost themselves. Those reports are in the DR complaints thread, if I remember correctly, but I'm sorry I'm not going to wade through over a thousand posts to dig them out. The affected people may speak out for themselves here to confirm it.

    Legally, they have a notice in their FAQ stating their products have a 30-day money-back guarantee from the day of purchase. Plus, you're not buying the figures in the UK, you're buying them (telematically) in the US and importing them into the UK. MattyCollector is a US-based business that abides by US (and international) laws, not by UK laws. It's you, as the importer, the one who has to pay the applicable import tariffs and make sure you're complying with UK law when importing these toys into UK soil.

    Ah, I see. Well it's best NOT to post stuff back unless you get a postage paid label or confirmation they will definately refund return shipping.

    Dude, that just isn't how it works. I pay by a UK issued credit card whose protection applies to UK and International purchases. Matty can write as many FAQ as they want. If a company does not comply with the distance selling regulations and refuses to rectify the problem, then my bank will do a chargeback. However like I said, I've never had any problems with Matty/DR, so it's never come down to that. I've been buying and selling online internationally since 2000, so I know what I'm talking about in regards to my rights. Unless your familiar with the UK credit and consumer act, then you have no argument.

    You're mixing two different things: the foreign online store and your domestic credit card issuer. The foreign store abides by the laws of the country it is based in, and so does your credit card issuer. Since your credit card issuer is based in the UK, it abides by UK laws. But MattyCollector is based in the US and abides by US laws. Your UK-based credit card issuer may refund you for your purchase if that's what you're entitled to by UK laws. But if MattyCollector has complied with US laws, they are entitled to litigate with you and/or your credit card issuer to have their payment fulfilled. By doing business with MattyCollector.com, or with Amazon.com for that matter, you're agreeing to the laws of the place that business is based in (the US, and specifically the California and Washington states, respectively), not the other way round. In fact, if you do business with Amazon.co.uk, even though that webstore is totally geared towards the UK clientele, you'd actually be agreeing to the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (the fiscal paradise they're based in); although, in this case, because of the European Economic Area agreements, the UK consumer protection rights would be applicable if they are more favourable to the UK customer.

    Anyway, we're straying far into off-topic.

    The flash sales are "fun" but just stink because you end up placing 10 different orders and get killed by the shipping. I also don't have time to fool around on cyber Monday. I have a work.

    Everything I know of refunds and shipping is the 30 days begins when the product is in your hands....they can't count shipping time as time the consumer has had with the product, the 30 days starts when the product shows as delivered, the Matty computers know exactly when your item arrived if they were to look it up, I know, because the USPS "misplaced" one of my shipments, and I contacted Matty, they knew exactly when that item was supposed to be delivered, and when the USPS found it....they knew, because I got an E-mail from Matty saying the claim was resolved because they knew it got delivered.... You have 30 days from the time the product shows delivered to make your claim.

    But as many know, the CS stock is often gone long before you international guys even get your stuff, per the case of Fisto.

    HTS is like this, BBTS is like this, and Matty is like this, my friend returned something, and he even asked because it was 30 days from the last sale date, and he was told he still had like another 7 days, because it was his shipping time that delayed the 30 day window.

    Anyway, I may be looking into Catra & Buzz Off....maybe Photog, but, it depends on the discounts....

    When did matty start doing 30 day return rule? I had a Roboto for a reeeeally long time, before I even noticed his heart piece was missing in his chest. They sent me a replacement without any problems.

    To be honest I really don't know, I think it was always there, I've only been buying from Matty for a little over a year now, so I don't really know.
