    That's... that's terrifying. There needs to be an investigation as to why people would voluntarily pay for the Fighting Foe Men.

    Mental illness?

    Masochism?

    Excess money?

    Grand governmental conspiracy?

    That doesn't mean anything. Matty manipulates these things all the time. You will see them again on Matty for sale, AND you will see them available on other sites.

    Yes, they may appear again.

    Maybe they are pulled.

    But still they are announced as ALMOST GONE on the same day they went on sell and a lot of people didīt expect that. Still there it is written in bold red letters.

    And i like it

    Thatīs all.

    Most likely they're almost gone like Dekkar and Flmation Randor where when they had the label first day but sit there for two weeks.

    There's no reason to think that sales have anything to do with that....

    Funny, I seem to recall the same thing being said when the Star Sisters sold out quickly (not as quickly I might add) and I don't remember them showing up on Black Friday.

    I'm willing to believe the FFM had lower production numbers, but when something sells out fast that does not automatically mean there's some wild conspiracy behind it.

    It's true. After the initial sale of the Star Sisters, they never re-appeared on Matty ever since. Not on Black Friday, nor in the Mad Matty Monday Mystery packs. Speaking of those...they only had two, and it was supposed to happen more often. What ever happened to that? They probably ditched that idea because it got some people majorly p.o'd.

    So many conspiracies. I can't believe Mattel even has time to make figures with all the plotting and scheming they do to mess with MOTUC collectors and keep them down. So lame. I'm outta here.
    Make Filmation Clawful. Come on, he's like a totally different character!

    To be fair, if they stopped doing all the things that people got majorly POed about, I doubt they'd still be selling MOTUC

    The FFM are why I started collecting Classics in the first place. Great character choices, MOTU mythos and awesome figures.

    That is why they sold out.
    TOP WANTS:

    The voice of reason says

    There were probably fewer units put up for DOS since this is a higher cost item, and other things like not a vintage figure.

    Mattel typically waits for 2 weeks before falsely selling an item out, and usually pulls all items at the same time.

    FFM have a range of emotions some people can't stand them, some people love them, many are meh (to the point of really liking 1-2 but not the set, and which ones they like is sporadic).

    Because they only have box art nostalgia working for them, and the only real alternate display options they bring is Horde chest symbols they don't have many alternate display options. Aside from switching out their own chest symbols but even then. Also with the chest symbols it's more of a push to make them a difference character (200x is his overly angry brother for example).

    I do think individually the figures can be desired by customizers because of the limited armor and stuff like they are wearing.

    I do think there is a demand, but secondary market is going to be off for a few different reason some of which I have already stated. I do think those looking to sell should offer to open it and sell individually, instead of trying to get rid of them in one swoop. I also think they will take a bit more to sell but not as bad as some make it out to be, the big issue being it's a high cost. I am of the opinion a 2-3 pack should be the only thing offered in that month.

    Mattel must have adjusted the DOS quota.

    I'm glad though, very cool figures, shame they have gotten so much bad press

    Hope they sell out ASAP!
