    Got mine, in and out quick, glad to see they got that WSOD fixed for the higher traffic! He did sell out fast, got the same delay as everyone else, wasn't available until after 2 minutes after! I'm sure by this sell out, they didn't put the whole number for matty up at this time, they will most likely put the rest up later this year on matty after the conventions.

    No offering a traveling convention figure is awesome. Allowing jerks to buy 10 per sub is what is stupid.

    That is just bloody ridiculous. Why grant subscribers this 'early access', just to have us treated like regular buyers when the time comes. Thanks, Matty. You gave us this great privilege that really meant nothing. I really thought you were finally doing something good for us subscribers. You could have had enough for all of us.

    Finally I've found that I belong here.

    I got one! I was trying to use the new DHL but 38 for shipping seems a bit off. So this is a new mark for ultra fast sell out?

    It is. This is nothing compared to that! Hasbrotoystore during exclusive time is way worse than Matty. We don't know WHEN the damn things will show up...

    Since they said it would be very limited quantities and didn't set a limit, I'm guessing this is just to drive more excitement for him going into the Con season and to give people a chance to get him early since they have already made him.

    He'll be available at Cons. I hope he's available again on Matty, though. The thing is, I'm not 100% sure I am going to PowerCon. All signs point to yes, but this might be my only chance to get him. So I got one. If they do a sale AFTER the cons like last year, then people like me know they have one for sure and wouldn't bother to order. So having the sale after the con probably makes more sense just to avoid making people annoyed.

    Oh man. I was just talking about this the other day - being worried about missing out - and now I totally forgot about the EA thing today and missed out.

    Wow! I wasn't expecting him to sell so quick. I assume Mattel must have put a very small quantity of him up for sale since he is a Con exlcusive for the rest of the year. I guess the upside for some folks is that he will be available again at Power-Con, New York Comic Con, and probably Grayskullcon. Maybe more places as well. Plus, Mattel will probably put the remaining stock up for sale on Matty again after the Con season is over, like they did with TOD Sorceress last year.

    So there are still more chances at least.

    Well, I'm super ****** off! I thought the Early Access Sale started at 12 (like EVERY Matty Collector sale), but no...it started an hour sooner...because that makes sense. Well, I'm not buying anything this month from Matty. If I could have gotten Strobo, I would have bought 2 packs of the clamshells. I hate you Matty!

    The problem with releasing him now is that people who are going to go to those conventions will buy him now "just in case" or because they don't want to wait until the convention. It wasn't the people who couldn't get to the conventions buying him... it was everyone.

    I got mine, plus the ones for folks who hit me up for assistance, in and out with no problem. Shipping wasn't bad either for UPS ground. Overall happy with the process, but feel bad for those who missed out.

    My luck ran out. First time ever I didn't get my figure. He's still sitting in my cart. Scott better get more on the site for the April pre-sale.

    I agree. They should have had exactly one available per subscription with the order limit set to 1. That way every subscriber would have a chance. I was very fortunate and was able to get one but it was sold out immediately after my order was confirmed. I also received the confirm email. Looks like it was pure luck and not very fair to the majority of subscribers.

    Seems like Mattel vastly underestimated Strobo's popularity or that many people wanted the extra Zodak head since 2009.
