    Soooo, did anyone go on Matty today? (No "I've placed my order" thread this month)

    It feels like a badly planned onth. a controversial and expensive 3 pack and a New Adventures figure.

    Did anyone place an order for MOTUC this month or are we now painfully aware of what will be on the block for mad matty sales?

    Prediction:
    http://www.simracingdesign.com/~files/ollie%27s_67b.jpg

    $81 for 3 unknowns... Ouch. (Though I DO really dig these figures)
    Karatti at any price... Ouch.

    Flash version 25 or whatever and Silky Spank-her aren't even "almost gone" yet...

    Perhaps the entire Spirit of Hordak dealio was to offset the inevitable fail of today?

    Still debating picking up a Wally Flash, I have the previous Barry Allen version and a blue lantern Flash.

    Made a deal with another .orger for FFM who was getting rid of an extra sub set for cost + shipping to me, so that was cheaper than going through matty.

    Matty cancelled my sub for an unknown reason. I called them to fix my problem they told me to wait because in 3 days my sub will be charged again and didn't happen. I no longer have a sub thanks to Matty.
    There was plenty of money in my card. Had to place my order today for Karatti.

    Matty you haven't learned a thing, even us who subscribe have to deal with things like this. Man this is frustrating and I rarely complain. But this time I just have to.

    I certainly don't want to see a month where they receive practically no business for the MOTUC releases, but honestly what did they expect? Though his look doesn't necessarily appeal to me directly, I'm at least open to Karatti--but quite a few (of the posters here, at least) seem non-interested. And as for the FFM, what can be said that hasn't already? It's an overpriced item (because it's a three pack) containing three characters that all but a very select few couldn't care less about. At the very least, they should have swapped one or the other of this month's releases with a character that has wider appeal.

    Didn't buy but have a sub, and that's why. I'm happy with this month's releases.

    I picked up a Silk Spectre and a Keldor, but also have the FFM and Karatti on the way via sub.

    No, I didn't need extra as I already purchased more than I need "to help the line". And now I can't seem to give away my extra FFM and Karatti at cost.
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    Have a non-subscribing friend that wanted a FFM, so I bought him a set. I think I'm the only one.

    I don't get the excitement with the Flash figure. It's really no different front what we've already gotten. I wouldn't mind another FFM for customs but can't afford it at the moment.

    I went in just to look at how they were doing. Since subbed, I got mine on route already, but was curious.

    I was pleasantly supprised to see they were still availible, except I was also a little embarrased since that says something based on how we know they sell out.

    I'll be happy to get mine, too bad they were not so beloved though. Tough month.

    Was it an easy transaction? no WSOD??

    I wasn't really AGAINST them but when the international shipping debacle with King He-Man and the map happened, that's what killed it for me. I realized how much international (Canadian in my case) fans were getting gouged with multiple items being shipped and I didn't want to pay such an inflated price (with the shipping) for figures I didn't really care about.

    No sadly didn't buy anything today. Wanted Evil-Lyn but she was NA. Got Stinkor yesterday during EA, Already have a sub, so getting FFM and Karatti (which I don't want) by default.

    Very clever to add FFM and Karatti as the first new mini-sub figures, knowing they will probably not sell well.

    Damn....bad month for Matty....had I been a picker instead of subbing this year....I'd have passed on everything new....but maybe picked up a King Hisss....but not with $109 already, and waiting for BBTS to take my money when Springer & Blitzwing finally come in....

    I'm keeping The Foe Men (but not crazy at all about Sherilyn, (really don't like the BG Teela buck) don't like her head sculpt with the painted, and non removable (because it's friggin sculpted and not a separate piece) face shield)....hate Karatti....but doesn't look as if I can sell him....I'd rather use him for parts instead of taking a loss for him, or give him to my son (don't even want to do that because I think he's the ugliest mofo so far in Classics, and I really don't like him)....sucks.

    Not to mention DOS price here for the Foe Men is $81 , $75 in my sub, for figures I could truly live without is ludicrous enough....plus a figure I never wanted.

    I ordered a Stinkor yesterday. My SoH, Karratti, and FFM are in the mail already.

    The big problem with the FFM is that a 3-pack SHOULD be discounted. The costs drop for Matty, even if just in terms of packaging. When you buy in bulk, you get a discount. The most the FFM should have cost would have been $65, not $81. As a result, they're not selling out and will be available FAR cheaper on the secondary market. I may even grab a second set when the prices drop low enough.

    yep, that's another issue, ESP with army builders, they shouldn't cost the same as 2 figures, they are reusing the buck there should be a discount on them

    I really don't know why anyone would be buying FFM from Mattel directly when there will be (and already are) so many FFM available from fellow orgers or on eBay for at or below cost (and the shipping would be less).

    I agree. I see several people posting that they bought them from Matty today at the DOS higher cost when I have been trying to sell them below subscriber cost and taking a loss

    It is going to be irksome when I see the FFM, that I paid $75 for x3 in my subs, show up at a Mad Matty sale for $40 or so.
