    SUBSCRIPTION Mosquitor & Procrustus ARRIVAL Thread

    My subscription Mosquitor and Procrustus just came! Here is a quick pic, more to come later tonight (at work). Also, my free gift was Mer-Man. Procrustus is amazing and it is very nice to finally see Mosquitor, though I'm gonna pull those insect legs off - glad they are removable

    Merman? Nice! I'd gladly take a second one of him. Hope my freebee is Merman!
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    Oh I'd love another Mer-Man!
    I'll use his vintage head so Mer-Man can have a "soldier."

    he was a flash sale on Cyber monday.

    I figure what is left of those and other unshown stock will be what is given out.

    Very exciting!
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Well, Mer-Man wasn't a Monday flash sale, really, but he was one of the characters available throughout the extended black friday sale. Assuming that they're pulling the free figures from the list of basic (like, no Vykron, Marlena, or beast) characters that were available during the sale, and knowing that no characters released in 2012 will be included, that leaves the following as potential free figures:

    He-Man
    Skeletor
    She-Ra
    Bubble Power She-Ra/ She-Ra 2.0
    King Hsss
    Hordak
    Hurricane Hordak
    Battleground Evil-Lyn
    Battleground Teela
    Buzz Off
    Clawful
    Catra
    Moss Man
    King Grayskull
    Mer-Man
    Faceless One
    Sy-Klone
    Grizzlor
    Vikor
    Faker
    Stratos
    Chief Carnivus
    Count Marzo
    Icarius

    I seem to remember these three selling out during the sale, so they're probably not included:

    Zodak
    Snout Spout
    Adora

    And these were the actual Cyber-Monday Flash sale characters, so they might be sold out or only left in tiny quantities.

    Evil-Lyn
    Man-at-Arms
    Trap-Jaw
    Man-E-Faces
    Webstor
    Keldor
    Leech

    There, that's enough procrastinating for the day I'll be curious to see if what everyone gets matches this list.

    Just got an email saying that Procrustus and Granamyr are delayed.

    Dear Club Eternia« Subscriber,

    We wanted to let you know we've just heard our shipment of Procrustus™ figures has been delayed. We'll receive him in waves and will ship out subscription orders as supplies are received. If you have multiple subscriptions that are combined, your orders will be held until Procrustus™ arrives. We're hopeful the delay won't be too long, but plan on an approximate 1 to 3 week delay just to be safe.

    Although he's not a subscription item, we also wanted you to know that Granamyr™ is delayed as well. If you order him during our regular sale on Monday, December 17th at MattyCollector.com, any additional products you order at the same time will be held until Granamyr™ arrives. Please order Granamyr separately if you don't want your order held.

    We appreciate your patience and thank you for being a MattyCollector.com customer.

    I was watching the sale WAY too closely for those days since I'm playing catch up to all of you.

    Didn't sell out, but were listed as "almost gone":

    Snout Spout
    Faker
    The Mighty Spector

    Sold out:
    BG Evil Lyn
    Adora
    Zodak
    Draego-Man
    Castle Grayskullman
    Queen Marlena
    Trap-Jaw

    Correct me if I'm wrong people.

    Matty's email states that Procrustus is arriving in waves, so it makes sense Patrick got his. It just means there will be a number of us with delayed shipments until the rest arrive.

    I wish that we're true, my last name starts with an A and I didn't get my shipment last year till mid January.

    I just re-checked my email inbox, and my sub shows as being shipped.

    Nope my last name starts with W and my sub shipped yesterday and arrives UPS Ground Wednsday. UPS tracking shows it weighs 6lbs. and the matty shipping email says Procrustus, Mosquitor and a bonus figure shipped.

    Can't wait for Mosquitor! Frankly, I could have cared less about this guy until Dan really stoked the fires with his interest (that transference is odd, but it happened what can I say), and the figure itself looks fantastic! Procrustus less so, but only because I'm not overly fond of the larger scale 'beasts'. He does look awesome though, so perhaps having him in hand I'll be swayed to the side of the converted.
    Harken to the coming of RIO BLAST!!

    One of my subs shipped yesterday, but the other is delayed. Fun times.

    Same here - no shipping notice.

    It kinda stinks because I'm always one of the last U.S. members here to receive sub items, being in NYC.

    So it will be even longer a wait.
    Oh well!

    It will be fun looking at everyone's pics though!

    Mer-man? Not bad, that gives me hopes for Grizzlor being mixed in with the free figures (one of the few I still need).

    Is is possible that Subscriptions are shipping in the order they were placed in 2011 when you guys ordered them? That would explain the randomness of it all.

    Example: the first guy to get his subscription order in back in 2011 gets his stuff shipped first. And the last guy to orde a subscription in 2011 (for 2012) gets his stuff from the back order shipments. But since shipping goes faster and slower based on where you live,that is how some shipments make it to collectors faster than others.

    Just a thought.
    Take it easy,

    Looking for: deals on MOTUC Roboto, King He-Man, Meckaneck, Zoar (from Sorceress) and more!
    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!.

    I really wouldn't mind getting a mer-man. My original one had a slight paint imperfection around the nose that drive me nuts, I like both heads and put on the card back one, but I like the cat head still.

    Nope, because I got my sub the moment they went up and I don't have my shipping confirmation.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.
