    I understand why that is... they wanted to secure as many subs as possible for each line... If I had been able to get the DC Sub figures via early access, I would only have purchased the MOTUC subs... maybe... actually, I probably would have subbed because of the combined shipping.

    But I won't be trying for a second SOH to keep MOC via early access tomorrow because I can't get Silk Spectre via Early Access Two sales lost... they probably don't care.

    Hopefully with the 4 limit it will allow us to grab one or two.

    Well, I have a Club Eternia sub (And Filmation.) I thought that meant I could grab the other figures from DC, BF, etc during early access. Even if they don't let me grab them first (It's not like those ones sell out the first day anyway,) it feels like such a scam to charge us twice for shipping on the 14th and 15th. The shipping is already overpriced and ridiculously slow. Now they want a double-dip? They're going to lose out on my money. I won't be grabbing Wally West this month. He's not worth the price with his own individualized shipping charge. Not so long ago I was buying DCD figures 4/$50. And the DCD figures look a lot nicer.

    Really they should ship after the 15th and send out all figures ordered on the 14th and 15th together with combined shipping, like I would expect any Ebay seller to do....

    They've already got over $150 of my money this month from FFM, Karatti, and Jelly-Flavoured Hordak (And they'll get another $30 or so for Stinkor tomorrow.)

    I have 2 MOTUC subs and one Filmation sub. Matty loses sales with me almost every month because they refuse to combine shipping. I very seldom buy anything day of because the shipping is too high already without paying it twice.

    Putting the SOH figure in EA is a nice gesture from Mattel, and I appreciate it, but it's going to sell out so fast that the odds of getting it aren't worth me taking time off of work to get one.

    Bummer.

    Good luck to those who will be trying.

    Hopefully I can score one later in the year.

    - Buy the early access items that you want.
    - If they don't sell out: On actual DOS re-buy them along with the other items now available.
    - Cancel your early access purchase.
    - Profit???

    For what it's worth, I just started a poll to see how much combined shipping would change peoples' buying habits. I wonder if Matty knows how much money they're losing every month with this policy?

    I hate to play advocate for Mattel, but Scott did say many times you would only be able to get non sub figures during Early Access....eh, now I feel blah....

    Anyway, you'd think all of that, but Matty is far from a perfect world, they seem hell bent on finding all kinds of ways to make you pay more if you want to collect any of the lines offered....sad, but it's par for the course, they have us, it's either suck it up, or quit the line....to a point complaining gets us some lead way....so there's that.

    Obviously you have never tried to cancel a DR order... It is almost impossible. They just tell you that the order is already processed and you can refuse delivery if you don't want the item.

    Mattel already knows, they offered us an option in a poll to choose monthly or quarterly....I don't remember which one had the most....many want their figures monthly instead of waiting....I know I'm dying to press the ship button fro figures I have in BBTS's POL.....just waiting on Blitzwing & Springer to make it all worth it, then starting all over with Sandstorm in July....

    They won't cancel an order unless it's absolutely necessary, and even then it's like trying to beat yourself to death with a wiffle ball bat....it's less hassle to pay the shipping....we know it, they know it, I think it why they have the **** ass policies they do.

    Matty sucks, everyone knows it, they can't do what even beginner start-up e-tailers can do....cancelling an order is a no brainer, but simple things....Matty can no do....

    So uh... what is so special about this Hordak? And why did they go and make this when they should have been making new Fistos for people?
    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.

    Meanwhile at the dark castle of Matty HQ:

    Scott: Guys, we really need something to get the fans excited and happy. They have been wanting some really hard to get reissues.

    Mattel Guy with Twirly Mustache: This is true, sales have been down.

    Balding Villain Guy: Well, the fans have been wanting Doomsday, and there is that new Superman movie coming out.

    George Bush: Yes, heheheheheh, but that would mean breaking our vowuls.

    Mattel Guy with Twirly Mustache: I agree.

    Scott: What about just giving them a reissue of Fisto or Sorceress?

    All at once: Hahahahahahahaha

    Mattel Guy with Twirly Mustache as he wipes a tear from his cheek: That is a nice one.

    Balding Villain Guy: I GOT IT!!

    Mattel Guy with Twirly Mustache: Well don't keep us in the dark!

    Balding Villain Guy: The fans have been wanting a translucent red plastic Hordak, right? It will give us a reason to finally use all of that red plastic we bought from Hydra for $1 per 10 acres.

    Scott: Yes, yes I think they have.

    Mattel Guy with Twirly Mustache: That is an excellent idea. They'll buy whatever we give them and love it because they have no choice. We decide if the line lives or dies, so they are required to like it without second thought. Quick, call the factory and start that guy in production right now!!!

    Unfortunately, it does not. The Early Access for you won't start until July when the first Filmation figure gets released this year on Matty.
