    Thanks! I guess there is no chance to have the "Blue Mer-Man vs Aquaman" 2-pack too ...
    I'm hoping for Octavia at least ...

    I've done amazingly well out of the past BF/CM sales, they have filled major holes in my collection and I got figures such as Teela, MAA, Scare-Glow and Tri-Klops for below DOS prices.
    I doubt I will be so fruitful this year as most of the figures I need now are rare or sub-only.

    If I just can snag a Ram Man, even at full price, I will be overjoyed!

    I'm new to the line so I've never done a Matty Black Friday/Cyber Monday. How do they work (prices, whats available, etc.) and what time does stuff usually get listed? Any other tips to use to snag the good stuff? I've hear Matty site can be a bugger to order from especially during sale stuff. Thanks!

    I'm worried everyone is going to be disappointed by this year's sale. Supposedly all pre-2012 stock was sold out already via last year's sale and this year's Early Access, and virtually ever 2012 figure has also been confirmed sold out now. All that will really leave is some 2013 figures, right (does anyone really believe Nepthu sold out)?

    Their original statement is incorrect, scott says they were wrong as when they went through the warehouse they found stuff that sold out which includes wind raiders, 2 items that have just 100 units left, and more pre 2013 stock.

    He also said however, no 2013 item will be discounted, just put up at regular price on bf.
    We need a Snake Teela and Critta in MOTUC! The snakemen and Space mutants are the only factions without a girl in them!

    Which completely baffles me - particularly since he said they found a large amount of the Wind Raiders.

    How do you not know how many you produced vs. how many you have sold? Even if they didn't check that figure, it speaks to really poor inventory control at the warehouse. It's just crazy thinking that anything can get "lost" like that as inventory should be recorded when it's brought in and when it's brought out. There should be several ways to detect this.

    It's good for us - but does not speak well at all to them having any sort of handle on their product, which makes me doubt quite a few things over the years that have been said about inventory or lack thereof.

    Yes, lets not forget last years sale with Voltron Black Lion going on sale on black friday, only weeks after its original sale date. There was no CS stock left for international customers who either had damaged lions or in the worst case lions that never got delivered so people had unfinished voltrons.

    Last year's Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales are what finally convinced me to collect this line in earnest and start subbbing this year. I was able to get so many figures at a huge discount. The low prices really help to soften the blow of overpaying for the rarer stuff. Psyched to see what's on offer this year!

    What time of day does it start. I can't remember if it was 9a.m. pacific or earlier. I want to say it was earlier on some days but not sure.

    Not this stuff, though. DR's warehouse only has for-sale stuff. All the other stock that isn't currently for sale is in Mattel warehouses.

    Isn't digital river supposed to handle inventory and sales tracking? The mattel team for matty seems to be a skeleton crew at best.
