    Is Swiftwind gone for good?

    During Cyber Monday He-Man, She-Ra and Swiftwind among others sold out. However, since then both He-Man and She-Ra have returned to sale, but still no sign of Swiftwind.

    So does that mean that Swiftwind is gone for good?

    Everything was meant to be clearances out with that sale. If it sold out, its likely gone.

    He shows up on the monthly sale page with the rest of the essentials, but still sold out.

    My guess would be yes. they put all the Swiftwind stock in the essentials and if he sold out then yeah he's gone for good. No second runs on figures anymore.

    Looks that way, but the way Matty has stock in several places & how they pull stuff to hold for later, you really can't be sure.

    So glad I grabbed one just before it sold out. I was going to add a Panthor to go with a Queen Marlena, but Matty's system gave me some unknown error and I couldn't. So, next, I tried adding a Palace Guards set—but again got the same error. So, finally, I tried adding a Swift Wind (which I hadn't planned on getting until after getting a Panthor), and this time Matty's system did happily allow. And then, not long after during the same day, and totally unexpectly to me, it sold out. So I grabbed my Swift Wind at what, unknowingly and unsuspectingly, happened to be the last moments of its availability—and I was "forced" to do it out of pure luck. If Matty's bug-ridden website hadn't glitched when I tried adding Panthor and the Palace Guards, I wouldn't have ordered Swifty at that moment (thinking it would still be available in the Essentials long after); but right after I placed that order I was not allowed to place any more orders during that day (because of the absurd limit on daily number of orders), and then Swift Wind suddenly sold out. So, if I didn't end up Swifty-less, it was thanks to DR's less-than-top-notch software.

    I wasn't around when Swift Wind first came out, and I've had to spread out my purchases of "Essentials" items throughout the year because of all the catching-up with monthly reissues and all the other new stuff being offered each month (I did get a Griffin when it came out this summer). So by the time BF/CM arrived, I had already gotten my Battle Cat during the special "birthday" sale, but was still lacking Panthor and Swift Wind, and was planning on getting Panthor first and leaving Swift Wind for December. Luckily, Matty "forced" me to get my Swift Wind first, just before his unforeseen sell-out, and I secured my Panthor a few days later (so that now I've already purchased at least one of every "Essentials"). I still need to buy a few additional multiples of Palace Guards (have 4 guards and plan on a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 20), but with the BF/CM sale (got almost three dozen items), the upcoming December sale (with expensive Granamyr and Procrustus), and getting 4 Ram-Men in January (2 for alternate heads display and 2 for gifts), I'm going to be near-broke for some months. Hopefully, they still have enough Palace Guards sets to last till next spring/summer when I hope to be able to finish my army.

    BTW, it's true the wings on Swift Wind and the Griffin are really nicely detailed and sculpted, but they are seriously lacking articulation. They're statuesquely "frozen" in their spread-out shape, which strongly clashes with the highly-articulated nature of the rest of the figure. They should have had at least an articulation point at the wing's "elbow" (just like with DCU Hawkman), so that they could be "folded back" when not "in flight". I can't make up my mind whether to buy additional Griffins, precisely because of the under-articulated wings and their inability to be posed in any other way than "flying".
