    I just purchased a Nite Owl DOS. I had Granamyr in my cart too and pondered getting extras of some of the other MOTU stuff. Then I wised up and dropped the Granamyr from my order. Maybe I'll get him on BF if he's available, but $85 is a ton of cash for a giant figure I'm not even sure where to put.

    I'm really looking forward to the complete comic style Watchmen set. I'm surprised there doesn't seem to be much interest in it. Only two more to go!

    Which shipping did you use? It costs me $9.90 for a trip to Michigan for a single MOTUC using Newgistics....

Mattel is insane for trying to tell us they lose money on shipping.
    Tell me about it, HTS.com offers free shipping from time to time, and even if not it's reasonable, and it gets to me in 3 to 4 days....same with BBTS, but with BBTS I use UPS, and it's still cheaper than Newgistics from Matty....plus, again, I get my stuff in 3 to 4 days....

    I give Matty $10, and it takes 6 to 7 days....I give BBTS or HTS.com $6 - $9 (or so, single item) and I get my stuff in 3 days.... Something is seriously wrong here.

    Just in time, got Icer. That Almost Gone label is putting a lot of pressure on me. Glad that I got him on time.

    Given Icer (purchased one) has been around all day (I flubbed the Filmation Sub order and it never went through) I don't foresee any problems with the next two given the lukewarm reception for Batros and Shokoti. However, the remaining three might change the demand. In the end, I got what I wanted, as well as Granamyr, despite not waiting till Monday to get the dragon and save on the combined shipping. Huuzah for MOTUC!!

    I haven't seen any lukewarm reception for Shokoti, and Batros is a few months away....these 3 are much desired Filmation figures....

    What lukewarm response for Shokoti and Batros? Haven't heard it, and I'm definitely looking forward to those two more than Icer. Nothing against Icer.

    I don't know, those sale times of 30 hours don't show Mattel the high demand I often read about

    Buy those damn figures, I want my NA Skeletor produced!!!

    Seconded - I really want to see them go all-out on an NA Skeletor. I suspect they will regardless, but...yeah. I wish all the figures were made like NA He-Man.

    Lukewarm reception was buttressed by Scott, reporting on the less than stellar Filmation Sub sales. Although Shokoti and Batros, individually, may have received support the Filmation Sub as a whole did not. I interpret that as lukewarm support for the figures.

    The sub still passed, we're getting all 6 figures, and I see growing support for each new Filmation figure to come out.... Icer is getting rave reviews....Shokoti is seemingly getting good responses and Batros is yet to be seen, and I think he'll get a lot of support too. Icer is getting a great response, even to people who didn't like Filmation much....

    Doom and Gloom Neitlich strikes again....if a figure doesn't sell in minutes, it's considered to have a lukewarm reception....or it just did....OK.

    For the first Filmation sub figure....I think he's doing very well....hit "Almost Gone" status first day....he'll be gone in a day or so, and that still says to me, he did well.

    Octavia sold out first day or so....I think that is great for a Filmation figure....

    I also don't see NA He-Man being a quick seller either....and he's a He-Man variant....

    For all we know, there's 20 DOS Icers, and 3000 NA He-Mans (I know there's not actually that number, just making an example). If it's taking this long to sell through a small amount of DOS Icer stock, that could legit be considered disappointing. If there's a lot of NA He-Man stock, they might be OK with him selling a little slower. I don't think Scott has it out for Filmation, I think we can take what he has said at face value.

    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things aren’t absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I don’t collect toys to be miserable. So I’d rather think about the things that do excite me

    Yeah but they are still on sale 15 hours later,and if they don't sell enough(b/c they will cut the sale to make it look like they sold) then will they have missed the DoS clamp champ numbers.

    Icer is the first figure, and since the Filmation sub sold enough to make it....apparently, I seriously take it very lightly what he said. Fact of the matter is, the whole 2013 sub according to Scott was less than stellar, but somehow management approved the Grayskull attempt, and a second add on sub....

    Scott said, Grayskull was supposed to have nothing from the B-Sheet cut, yet, things got cut....

    Better yet, Scott said Grayskull could never be attempted unless it was a, and I quote "movie year".... Hello Big Green still unfinished play set!

    Scott said the sub would not be re-opened for sale....and yet, it basically was....call it lite or not....it was still reopened....

    Scott said they wouldn't be offering another add-on sub after the 30th sub....as it was a special thing done only for the 30th Anniversary....Hello Filmation sub!

    Scott says many things, and later contradicts himself, or completely dismisses something he said before like he never said it, it's happened too many times to take anything at face value.

    Point entirely, however missed, was, NA He-Man is still not selling as Scott or Mattel would like despite however many was made of who, even if he sells out today, he should have sold out in minutes to be whatever they thought the figure should do....otherwise they see any figure as a failure. That was my entire point, and to the fact that I see nothing that tells me despite anything Scott said, that Icer has a lukewarm reception.

    They could put out a turd in a bag, stamp MOTUC on it, and still expect it to sell within an hour.

    Hence the....

    ....if a figure doesn't sell in minutes, it's considered to have a lukewarm reception....or it just did....OK.
    ....part.

    Again, I didn't say Icer had as much DOS stock as NAHM, that was never my point, my point was entirely that if it doesn't sell in minutes, according to Scott (any figure) it's a failure, and didn't perform as Management would have liked. Besides 2013 main sub DOS stock is much lower than 2012's was....according to Scott....now, is that something you can believe? I don't know. And if so....then NAHM is doing very poor regardless.

    The NA figure is doing just as well as the Filmation figure, gaining the "Almost Gone" status at the same time.
    NA He-Man might have had more figures made than Icer since he is a He-Man variant, had an original figure back in the day and because he was multiple display options.

    I got my Granamyr, Icer and He-Man after the first minute!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can't believe that Icer and He-Man is still available on Matty. Octavia and Karatti sold out faster than these two. I thought that everybody will at least by Icer, just the get the Avion Staff for Stratos.

    Here's the problem, though : Stratos CAN'T hold the staff of Avion, as it has no handle and as Stratos has no gripping hands !

    Thats' how I have my Stratos holding it. He can't really GRIP it. But with the possible chipping paint it might not be a bad thing.
