    So did any of the "rarer" figures make it to the sale? Teela, Scareglow, Tri-Klops, Zodac, He-Ro, King Randor etc?

    Nope sadly. I was really hoping to snag another Teela too. I would have grabbed another Beast Man and Kobra Khan if they would have been offered as well. No such luck but life goes on.

    I just broke down and purchased a second Vykron. This way I can display all three versions of the character using my extra Tri-Klops. Teela was one of the sale items in last years Black Friday so after missing out on her I don't want to have another regret next year.

    In the end this was a very inexpensive sale for me since all I grabbed was a TOD Sorc and another Vykron. I am happy to see though that some people who just started the line were able to expand their collections.

    Well, some people don't have a mortgage nor children. Plus I had been anticipating this sale since months ago, and see it as something of a one-time thing. I'm catching up and basically this my last chance at getting non-"essentials" MotuC figures at reasonable prices before next year's significant price hike and before Matty stock depletes of older figures. Too bad I couldn't fill more holes in my collection since they didn't offer Teela, Scareglow, Whiplash, Roboto, vintage Randor... Getting all those from secondary sources is probably going to hurt my wallet more than buying over two dozen figures at clearance prices during this sale.




    I can now confirm it's truly DR who's putting absurd hurdles to placing more than 6-7 orders per day. I placed 6 orders during the flash sales, and I've now tried placing additional orders for Panthor and Palace Guards after transferring more funds into my card, but I keep getting this Payment Authorization Failure message.

    This must be one of Matty/DR's dumbest moves, considering that Cyber Monday had 8 flash sales. I had called their Customer Service on Wednesday when after my first 7 orders I got mired in this payment authorization failure crap, and according to them everything was fine with my account, there was no block or flag or anything. Their solution: try waiting 24 hours and retry the purchase again—but they did not state, clarify or hint at anything about there being a daily purchase limit on their store (I thought they were implying my card issuer was placing a limit on consecutive payments to prevent fraud). Then I had to wait about 30 hours to be allowed to purchase again on Matty, all the way thinking it was a problem at my bank's side.

    DR always finding new ways to screw up their customers. Thankfully I managed to order Marlena just before this daily ordering limit crap befell me again. I would have been unspeakably mad at DR had I missed her because of their stupid ordering limit, after having waited for her during the whole BF/CM sale.

    It took me until now to find out whether or not Bow had gone up because of how the forums were shut down I've been on the edge of my seat since I went offline Monday night.

    I wish Matty would say things very directly and clearly without any confusion. They know that we mistrust them and that they're done things at the last second that threw us into a frenzy, especially last year during Cyber Monday. So for them to say "We really, really won't be putting up anything else on sale after time X. Really!" would be helpful. I feel badly for those who stayed up waiting, and lord knows if I wasn't otherwise occupied, I might have done the same. Because you can never really take what they say at face value, can you?

    That said, I'm glad they did the sale. Or rather, I will be once my Adora shows up (five weeks from now!) and I see she doesn't have major Quality Control issues. I'm really hoping my sword of Protection isn't bent or warped. But it'll be nice to finally have her. I was beyond excited when she was first announced, but the whole "Granny Panties" issue irked me to no end, so I held off on getting her.

    I waited hoping they might correct it on future releases - no such luck. Pffttt - she's just Adora, right? Why bother?

    If I had another card that their system would accept, I would have tried setting up a second account (re-register using a different e-mail address, and maybe a slightly reworded name ["John S. Doe" vs "John Smith Doe"] and/or shipping address ["Main Street" vs "Main St."]). It seems they block the user's account; so the block should be lifted, and the order allowed to go through, if placed by a different account (i.e., a "different" customer for the system).

    Anyway, if somebody still had any doubt about the cluelessness of Matty/DR on how to conduct business, there's the final proof. They limit the number of orders a legitimate customer may make, and therefore actively decrease their potential profits. And it's not like they're trying to prevent scalpers from hoarding all stock of some desirable product, precisely, because I could have ordered much more product than I did, if only had I ordered it all together (but that would have meant heavy customs stings, so placing a few big orders rather than multiple smaller ones is out the question for many international customers like me). And to crown it all, they place a lower limit on the number of daily orders (6) than the number of flash sales (8) they offer on a Cyber Monday.

    I tried a similar thing to get a 7th order in, but I was at work during the flash sales and my backup credit card was at home.
    Finally got an email response about the Payment Authorization Failure on Monday last night/this morning, it basically told me to try again in a day or so

    I can't help but feel annoyed with Matty after yesterday......
    I had been waiting for Cyber Monday to finally get She-Ra & Bubble Power She-Ra, then combine them to make the 'ultimate' She-Ra. I'm not a POP fan (don't hate POP either) so the (IMO) plain looking She-Ra was an easy pass for me originally, and I wasn't prepared to pay full price for both She-Ra's, so getting them both on CM was the only way I was willing to buy them, but regular She-Ra was 'sold out' on Monday.... that's fine, my loss I'm thinking, until......
    Minutes after the CM sale ends on Tuesday, regular She-Ra is magically back in stock (same thing w/ He-man btw). What a slimey thing to do. At least try to hide the fact you didn't want to sell regular She-Ra at the discounted price you claimed you were willing to sell her for Matty. Wait a bit before saying she's no longer 'sold out', do something other that what they did. If She-Ra being sold out on Monday wasn't a blatant lie, then I don't know what is Matty.

    It just bugs me when companies do that. If they didn't want to offer her during the sale, then simply don't offer her. But don't imply you would have sold her at a dicounted price if only she hadn't sold out before hand.... then put her back up for sale the moment the sale is over.

    Now, now... don't you know that Matty can do no wrong? (At least that is the belief of some.) lol

    But, yeah, I noticed that too. I was planning to pick up a He-Man at one point during the sale but it was sold out. Then today is magically not sold out. (But some will say we are expecting too much. lol Wait for it... )

    It's possible they only had so much stock of the essentials set aside for the sale and that specific stock sold out.

    But still if that was the case they should have done one of two things, mentioned this or waited a bit longer to 'restock'.

    Amazon does the same thing with their lightning deals on a daily basis, they only have so many they are putting up for that price. When the stock that was set aside has sold you can still purchase the product just at the regular price.

    The way the flash sales went was that certain items were offered and then pulled without notice. They used the "sold out" graphic just as a general statement to say that she is no longer being offered. I put a Leech in my cart at 6pm, but didn't finally pull the trigger on it until 9pm. So much for sold out. I actually got my shipping notice for it today. I guess He-man and She-Ra were part of the cyber-monday flash sales too.
