    Manta Raider Sold Out!

    Tried buying one at 9:02... sold out in less then two minutes. What a waste of time waiting for them to go on sale.

    Sorry you missed it, Keldor! I managed to get one. I was the FIRST guy at PowerCon to NOT get one, so I know the sting of disappointment.

    There was no way to increase the quantity per order so unless they were lightning quick, I don't think anyone would have been able to come away with 2.

    My guess would be somewhere between 50-100 before Power con!

    There will be a second batch in November, so the one who couldn't grab one, be there!

    I think the best way for some of us is a pre-order system. Or I must to have a speed of light typewriting for the next batch on November

    Wow that was fast. I barely got one at powercon. Didn't think they'd sell out so fast. I also believe he said he was doing 50-100 of them when I talked to him at powercon.
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    I didn't even know they were on sale. Guess I'll have to pay more attention in November.

    How did everyone even know it was going on sale? I've been asking repeatedly about how sales of this would be handled and have gotten nowhere. Disappointed to hear that I now missed out...
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    I only knew about it through Pixel Dan's Review of the figure. On his site he listed the sale date.

    I get tired of missing out on Joe's items. First the Mystic Hammer, now this. I guess I'll just ignore these things from now on.
    Awesome sticker included!

    I read that these were only going to be offered at the con, and weren't going to be mass produced.
