    UPDATED: Strobo In March!!! 3/15 Matty Sale Announced! w/ Strobo update

    Update from Scott about Strobo:

    "Hey He-Fans,

    I know there is some concern about Strobo selling out fast. As we noted, he really is our "2013 traveling convention" figure, but as a special bonus we made a very small amount available during Early Access for sub holders. Strobo will still be available at Grayskull Con, Power-Con, NYCC and a limited amount in late fall on Mattycollector.com (much as we did for TOD Sorceress) so today was not the only opportunity to get Strobo.

    See you at the cons!

    Scott"

    -----------------

    Ooh ooh ooh! Early Access, baby!
    No Fang Man for the non-subscribers? Uh-oh, get those torches & pitchforks!

    Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude!

    Glad to be a Subber! What a great haul in March! And Strooooooooooooobooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (I'm very excited.)
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Way to Go Club Etheria!

    Strobo = awesome, no waiting all year like for Sorceress.

    Fang Man - whoa, people are gonna light some torches.

    That said, this is a clearly transparent scare tactic - have we EVER had next months sale revealed before this months even happened? I can't recall in my time here.

    This is clearly being done to scare people into the Flmation sub, and I have a feeling that Fang Man will end up day of sale some time later this year. It just makes no sense for them to have only exactly made enough for sub holders.

    Fang Man is only available through the sub! You can't buy him day off.

    So it looks like Fang Man, along with King He-Man, are going to be the rarest figures in the line thus far, moreso than Fisto.
    To be fair, they said this could happen last summer. Whether or not anybody thought this scenario would actually happen is another story, and not at all ToyGuru nor Mattel's fault. It's a tricky business decision, because this sends the message for 2014 AND for the Filmation sub "If you are serious about getting the figures you like, subscribe- otherwise you may end up with a gap in your collection."
    I think sales of the 2014 sub are going to be all set come this summer... LOL!

    Oh man I didn't even see that he won't be up for day of. Uh-oh.

    Secondly while I need Keldor, it does suck I had to cherry pick the BF/CM sale & he was left out. Oh well at least I'll get him this time.

    I feel bad for people who didn't go for the sub or couldn't and who want Fang-Man, but at the same time torch lighting shouldn't be happening. Mattel made it very clear this scenario could happen.

    It could also always backfire too though and they may **** some people off and they may just give up.

    I also would very much like to know how it works.

    I tried to use it last month and couldn't figure out where to go on the website to use it, so I missed out.

    Cool to have Strobo so soon! I was lookin' forward to the goofy SOB. Man, March is gona be awesome! That should be enough to make me forget about NA He-Man for at least another week before the burning desire sets back in. July feels so far...

    I looked at it in January... Seems very easy... You log into the Early Access section and there is a sale page... Appears you go through it just like any other sale page... Just without the fear of all those day-of buyers getting in the way... Get a sub! Support the ENTIRE line!
