    Arduous question I'm trying to answer.. Who do I get??? BF sale

    I have enough funds to snag one last MOTUC figure for the BF sale. I snagged Trap Jaw earlier, but I'm ticked I missed out on Evil-Lyn (yellow) and Keldor.

    Sooooo, I have it narrowed down to 2 figs...

    BG Evil-Lyn
    Stratos

    Which one should I get? Who will be harder to get later? Help!?!?!?!?!

    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!.

    Good point. I think Stratos is on my mind because he was one of the original Masters and I don't have too many good guys yet.

    I do have Faceless One already tho....

    I would suggest BG Evil-lyn as well. Great figure.
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    I've actually bought all my six CGM with the firm intention of keeping and treasuring them (especially knowing how difficult and expensive it would be to rebuild my little army should I ever let one of them go). I really, genuinely want an army of him, and I was very surprised to learn that Daniel Benedict gave most of his two dozen CGMs away, since he had a unique opportunity at building the most amazing CGM army ever. But I guess he views CGM as the unique single-event unrepeatable-spell thing described in the bio, rather than the army of golem warriors emerging from the castle walls whenever intruders try to get in that I view him as.

    I actually wanted to get a seventh one to keep MoC (to eventually give away to a nephew together with a Castle Grayskull), but I got a payment authorization error issue that prevented me from placing any further orders until some 30 hours later.

    I picked up Mer-Man afterall. Would have added BG Evil-Lyn too had the figures been a couple of $'s cheaper together.

    Besides I need to save money now for Beastman and Tri-Klops on the secondary market
    8 figures I still need: 8/Perfuma (for completeness of POP ONLY!), 7/Filmation Tung Lashor, 6/Saurod, 5/Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina, 4/Peekablue, 3/Hunga the Harpy, 2/Filmation Clawful, 1/Dylamug.

    I have a feeling Stratos might be harder to get later. He's a vintage 8-back, whereas BGEL is a controversial variant.

    If you go to the essentials page she is still there...

    http://www.mattycollector.com/store/...isplayHomePage Nevermind, looks like she is gone. I tried adding her, but nothing happened. Sorry.

    That does suck. I guess ebay or a forum member could help?
    A few months ago I scored a BG Evil-lyn for $29 with free shipping off of Ebay. You should have no problem finding her for a cheap price, especially after she was offered for 5 days at $15 on Matty.

    Good luck.

    I actually prefer the yellow Evil-Lyn because I am primarily a Filmation fan. But, I read the 200X comics and I like the Evil-Lyn/Faceless One story arc. Man! I gotta figger sumthin' out!

    The only thing I needed was TOD Sorceress and I am glad I was able to get one. With so many characters that went on sale I am surprised I did not get more.

    I just wish the original Teela would have been offered. Mine has a loose elbow joint that has irked me since I got her and I wouldn't mind displaying one in snake armor. I really wish I would have grabbed an extra during last years sale. I am a bit surprised that she has never been re-released. She seems core enough to me. If they came out with a version with a waist twist, using the BG Evil Lyn buck, that would be amazing.

    Ok, so I broke down and picked up Stratos. The choice was made easier when my cart was emptied of BG Evil-Lyn. Guess I left it alone for too long.

    That's curious. I see BGEL as more Filmation-like than the yellow-skinned one. None actually match her Filmation colors, but BGEL has a cape and her helmetless white-haired head seen in one episode, and her pale skin seems somewhat more natural-looking than that vivid yellow (though I wish we could get an EL variant with flesh skin tone as in Filmation).

    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 don't know for sure, but it does let you back eventually.

    Sounds like that's what happened to you Wednesday which is why you were able to order again today with out issue, unless you know for SURE that it was in-fact your bank that was causing problems.
    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.
