    I got one, just received my confirmation, but I have to agree that the amount of it available was ridiculous low.

    I was ready to go exactly on time and received error messages until it was Sold Out. I am not thrilled.

    I ordered 1 Strobo and already received my email confirmation. I almost forgot about the sale today and remembered at the last minute!

    TOTAL BS! I try to buy my figure and it's listed as $250 in my cart. Emptied my cart and tried again and it sells out! Freakin' ridiculous!

    Whoa, this is the first time I find myself on the short end of a sell out! I refreshed the page for two minutes before the sale finally showed up and by the time I checked out, he was gone. No Strobo for me!

    Oh well, no worries...I'll probably get him at Power Con later this year!

    That had to be under 1 minute. I put one in my cart within 2 seconds of it going live and wasn't able to finish checkout - and I even got captcha right on the first try. *grumble, grumble*
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

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

    And I thought buying SDCC Exclusives off Hasbro Toy Shop was hard.

    Wow. Just, wow. This is the first time I've ever missed something on sale day when checking out immediately, and I've bought DOS since the beginning of the line. Didn't even miss Battle Cat and Trap jaw when they went just as fast. So the first time I miss is as a subscriber? Great sub 'benefit'.
    What a waste this entire subscription has been for me.

    He sold out while in my cart for checkout. First time that has happened to me. Oh well, hopefully I can snag him in the secondary market.

    Also experienced the 2 minute delay to start of the auction, followed by Strobo selling out midway through checkout. Means I've not processed the 4 x clamshells I was also ordering.

    Am surprised there are not enough figures produced for the Early Access to cater for regular subscriber numbers. By definition subscribers are 'all in' so should be expected to be queueing up to get these out of sub figures.

    Off to Ebay after the Conventions for me ...

    Yeah I tried at 11:02 and when I hit checkout it went to my cart but said it was empty. Tried again and it was out of stock already. Would have thought they'd have more available than that. I'm hoping it's a mistake of some sort like maybe when they entered the stock for sale they left of a zero or something.
    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!

    Geez, that was quick . Guess I have to wait and get him at NYCC (assuming he's actually going to be sold there)

    That was crap.

    Why did they put the cap at 10? That is waay to high. It makes having early access pointless when an itme sells out in 4 minutes. Why put your cash down to guarantee the chance to get what you want only to get stuffed at the door.

    This seems like it is only catering to the ebayers and online toy stores so they csn mark it up another $50.00 or more.

    Very very disappointed in Mattel.

    Wow. That was fast and a waste of my time.

    First it said "coming soon" until 8:02am (PST) for the figures even after refreshing the page.
    Added him to my cart and was completely sold out by the time I clicked the final order button.
    Yet when I went back to early access main page...he could still be added to your cart?

    -_-

    sold out

    Logged into early access at 1100am EST (8am PST) still said coming soon, waited till 1101 still said coming soon, refreshed it about 30 seconds later and he was "add to cart", put him in my cart got all the way to captcha entered that and "SOLD OUT" I call BS on the low number as well...so much for early access perk for ALL sub holders....more like the 1st 20 that can zip in.

    Yeah - it took a couple of minutes for the "add to cart" button to disappear after he was already sold out. I kept thinking it was just glitching and not letting me order.

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

    I managed to get one. He sold out insanely fast. Hope they put him back for sale online after con season for the many who missed him.

    I saw that too! I was hitting refresh and saw $250! I then opened another window and got in and it said $25 in that window. DR needs a kick in the crotch.
