    OK, the Roton was one of my favorite MOTU vehicles as a kid. I wish I still had my original.

    This new one looks great, and an improvement over the original. However, $125 (even though it comes with a nice figure) is way too much for this. Despite the coolness factor, I can't justify the price.

    These are going to sell out almost immediately, so this isn't all that useful of a tip.

    But if you got the Roton and sold the Skelecon, you would recoup a huge percentage of the cost, making the vehicle a lot cheaper.

    I'm not so sure the Roton will sell out immediately. If the numbers from before Matty closed are still valid, they had thousands of them still, and they didn't exactly fly out the door when they went up initially. The other stuff, Horde Troopers, Rotar/Twistoid, etc absolutely will though.

    I'm not saying that the Roton won't sell out - I'm sure it will. MOTUC are hot, and since they aren't sold @ stores they're difficult to find.

    I suspect most everything with any kind of demand will sell out within minutes (Filmation stuff and Horde troopers for sure). I think the Skelcon will push the Roton out of stock fast. I hope everyone that wants one gets one, but I suspect, this being Mattel, that won't happen.

    I don't see the Roton selling out, even with the army builder. Keep in mind-- only 1 vehicle in the history of the entire line has ever sold out-- the Sky Sled. Mattel is still sitting on Talon Fighters, Battle Rams, and Wind Raiders. It's too expensive and too much of a risk for scalpers.

    Does anyone else think it is a little odd that just after we had the pre-order for Power-Con that now Super 7 is slated to start pre-orders for the Classics and Filmation sets AND Mattel is putting up the Roton, Horde Trooper, Rotar & Twistoid, etc up for sale at nearly the same time?? It's a conspiracy to get our money I tells ya.
    I have finally returned from Despondos.

    or more like Mattel trying to steal Super7's thunder and sabotage the pre-order if folks can't afford to buy from them and Super7... Folks have been crying out for more Horde Troopers for a while and they are the obvious choice to go for if you can't afford both.
    Most wanted Filmation style MOTUC figures:

    Hunga the Harpy, Webstor, Kobra Khan, Leech, Grizzlor, Mantenna, Rattlor, Catra Cat Form, Ram Man, Count Marzo, King Miro, Twiggets, Frosta, Kothos and Admiral Scurvy.

    I doubt Mattel had the wherewithal to even know when Super7's preorders were going up. It feels like a clunky coincidence to me.

    In the end, I'm not sure Mattel's sale will be all that significant. I think the limited quantities of most everything will go to just a few people.

    Where are you guys seeing all these new items? When I search under brand, Masters of the Universe, the same 24 items come up that have been on the site since last year...

    type in Masters Universe in the search field. I am curious as to were folks are getting the Monday sale date for Shop.mattel.com? There is no mention of it on their site.

    Why would Mattel want to do that? It would benefit them if Super 7's line is a success and they continue the license.

    I never found confirmation of any kind that sale starts tommorow. It seems to be just a rumor to be taken with a grain of salt. Someone on another forum mentioned May 31 as the start of sale not may 1st. No idea were that person got may 31st.

    Val (JSV3 or something similar) said that Mattel told Heman.org that everything could be up as soon as May 1.

    I'd be shocked if the time weren't 9 AM PT whenever it happens, whether the 1st or 31st.

    Lion-O is now available (in limiited quantities) on the Mattel Shop if anyone still needs him.

    MOD NOTE: I feel there should be one thread for this impending Mattel Shop sale to make it easier for everyone to keep track of when things are avaialble and then when they sell out.

    Thank you for that tip! (I found Rotar and Twistoid - hope against hope that I can get them - by searching "Twistoid" after reading that they were apparently listed, but otherwise could only turn up the 24.) Getting Anti-Eternia He-Man would also be great; no Scarlett joHordak, but supposedly Spirit of King Grayskull.... The Wind Raider for $12.00 kind of strains credulity, though....
    Some of my current as-yet-unrevealed most wanted: Princess Rana, vintage-toy Catra, Lodar, Artilla, Quakke, Fang-Or, Bubblor, Bruar, Queen Crita, Illeena, Mandible Man, Masks of Power demons, Shezar, Sharella, Gladiator, King Hiss' Slave Girl, Crystoll, Dino-Sorb, Three-Beast, Prince Dakon, Ty-Grrr, Hans Hammer Holder.... And, very excited by most of the Collector's Choice!

    I'm honestly thinking the same thing.
