    That seems odd. I would think you'd get Octavia before NA He-Man.
    Yeah, for whatever reason Mattel has not yet sent Octavia out for review to anyone. There's still time before her sale date, so I'm hoping she'll still come.

    The Keldor list was awesome! That was how I got mine. I drove 16 hours from Augusta, GA to the Wizard Chicago convention just to get him but missed out on all 3 days.

    Too funny! I'd inject more sarcasm if I were to do this, so kudos to you for taking the high road.
    No, I don't believe Toyguru's living in a palace -- not after watching last night's episode of "Toy Hunter"!

    To be fair, that's pretty much what they did. It was first-come-first-serve for a small quantity. Just for discussion's sake, let's say the quantity they offer each time is 500. And 2000 people rush over to order him. And the limit is 4 per person. well, naturally, it's going to sell out lightning fast the first few times.

    But over time, as more and more people get one (or however many they ordered), there will be fewer people rushing to get it. By the 5th or 6th time they offer the figure, it should be easier to get. There's no guarantee of getting it, but it should technically and hopefully be easier over time.

    Like someone said, there's only about 22 listings on ebay for him right now. Looks to be about 42 sold auctions. so even if we round up to 70 sold and active via eBay, that's not exactly a gigantic amount. Looks like he's averaging around 80.00 on eBay, and I say it's not worth it when there's more chances coming. My advice is still to hang in there! Don't give in to ebay prices if you don't have to!

    I can't wait to see her! Unless she's there and you can't see her through your SOH acid trip.

    Wow! One little comment from me sparked all of this recollection.

    Yup you were, heh.

    And Mattel should be thanked too heh, they stepped up as well, something they did not have to do at the time either.

    Read through this entire thread, I understand the feelings everyone who was upset. All of the problems that people are having. I've had many of them too.

    But the best thing about this figure is that he will be made available again, we just don't know when, but he will be

    And hopefully all of the problems that users had/have will be sorted out by then

    New threads end up merged with the other main Hordak thread anyway, but new threads at the time actually help get news noticed than a thread that's been around forever it seems.

    I don't subscribe to threads, I come on and look and I'd rather see a new thread sitting there with new news than a stale month old thread 20 pages long (example) with more useless info than useful, and more about people saying they didn't get him, or they got him instead of actually saying anything new.

    So, I for one, prefer new threads, and the new threads are for new sales, not old ones.

    Why would you go to the first post of a 20-page thread looking for the latest news? What's the difference between going to the last page of an existing thread you see is updated and going to a brand new thread? It seems like a new post was made when the actual sale went up. Makes sense for that to continue. But once that sale is over, there's no point in continuing that same thread. Because it'd be repeating discussion that is already happening elsewhere.

    She is explicitly stated as being available on Matty in the June sale announcement, so no worries. Although I wouldn't be too surprised if she goes quickly.

    When I see an old thread updated, it seems to me that it's old discussion, therefore I usually don't bother checking the last pages, or anything in between. When I see a new thread, saying something new is happening, then I'll look....I'd prefer to see a new thread that says....X figure on sale now, this second, than seeing one from a month ago and looking at the end of it for new news that the figure is back....because this thread says....5/14....not say 6/2....therefore meaning to me, the thread is done.

    Even the old Hordak thread is useless to me, if there was a sale, then it would still get lost in the clutter of that thread....and the title would still read "MotUC All Things Hordak, Pics and Discussion (Reg, Hurricane, Spirit)" and says nothing to me that he is on sale just logging onto the Org. However a new thread that can be merged after the sale would be most informative and let me know right away without sifting that BAM, he's back. Now if it read "MotUC All Things Hordak, Pics and Discussion (Reg, Hurricane, Spirit)....(Back on sale now 6/2 @ 10pm)" Then I'd be informed without clicking into the thread.

    Merge the threads after the sale....but I think new threads should inform about new sales, that's the fastest and best way to help spread the news, not having to check last pages of an old thread, especially if the title doesn't reflect the new sale.

    Spirit of Hordak sale dates

    I have been one of the unlucky ones that seem to miss the Spirit of Hordak sale dates and times. Sometimes I miss them by only minutes. And like many, I try to visit mattycollector regularly to see if this figure is available, but it never is.

    I also noticed this figure is now marked as sold out, instead of currently unavailable. I hope that's not true.

    I thought it might help to have one thread to post any info related to when this figure will be available.

    Please post in this thread if you have any information about sale dates and times for the Spirit of Hordak figure. Thank you.

    He will be sold at December's Day Of Sale, as TG stated before. Probably, he won't show up til then.

    Did any one get any hints or updates on the Spirit of Hordak figure at the NYCC?
