    I got 2 ordered up, I'm really stoked to see the other figures that will be available in the comming up months, however I have a question reguarding the King grayskull figure I assume you'll have to break the seal of the box to see whether it's the bronze variant ? I really want to keep one mint in box and one loose.

    I have been wondering about the seal myself, since i want to keep mine mip, but i also want to know what i got.
    ------------------

    As for ordering, i was there right when they went on sale and it went pretty smooth, not wham bam thank you mam, but i suppose about 10 minutes, the mattel site was alot better than the hasbro sight this morning where i think i ordered the cobra commanders twice so i might have 4 black cobra commanders coming, maybe.

    Argh. Paypal charged me for an order that did not go through. I have to figure out how to get that money back.

    I was able to purchase two figures w/ a credit card about 45 minutes later.

    I ordered one Giganta and One Grayskull but that order status os Order unsubmitted but they charged me anyway Then somehow one Giganta got ordered seperately.

    I called them today and got no answers. I'll try again tomorrow and see if I can get them to correct this.

    I've opened one KG so far. As I recall (I was pretty excited of course) the only seal to break in order to know what KG is inside is the tape that keeps the lid of the outer box shut. I intend on opening mine up with a hair dryer, then re-sticking the tape. As I recall, the door had no seal on it, so you can pull out the inner box, check which KG it is, and re-seal. That's my theory anyway

    FYI, if you do end up with extra cobra commander, PM me. I didn't realize they put him up and he's gone now!

    It was a struggle to get the order through, but I am SO glad Mattel UPPED the number from 2 to 3...

    I've got one coming from the Con (thank you Val). I thought about ordering another, and if there's still some left in a few days I might. I wanted to let others that don't have one to have the opportunity before I take another one.

    I put off my lunch break until 1:45 so I can be there at my computer, but got there late, then once on I kept refreshing until I saw the add to cart button and then the site kept crashing and not taking my order then our network went down when I thought I had it through! Thank the Elders I decided to check my e-mail before trying to order again because there it was! I was able to buy 2! after 25 minutes of trying I had a confirmation e-mail! Woo Hoo!!!! They are still available!

    mattycollector.com now shows the King Grayskull figure as being SOLD OUT!

    So if they don't put my payment that they were oh so quick to take from my paypal account with my order that says it's "pending payment", then I'm screwed!

    Wow.

    He outsold Lobo, who is from DCUC AND Giganta from JLU??? And those two lines are still in stores. Not bad for our little online collector driven toyline that could. (Or maybe Mattel didn't make as many, since there aren't that many MOTU lovers compared to the DC fans.)

    How long did it take for them to sell out? Does anyone know?

    Just noticed that myself. After checking my 'order history' I'm a bit worried.

    I accidentally canceled the first ordered I put in, due to misinformation in the e-mail that I got (it said I had to put in a new order), but that one still exists and cleared payment somehow. The second one is still processing. I'm afraid they're going to eventually cancel the first one, and then not have enough to fulfill the second order I put in.

    I would guess roughly five hours. I ordered mine at 2:30 Michigan time(site should have opened at 3 my time) and its now little after 7:30ish. So not bad at all. Im super excited it sold out though, way to start the line!

    I forgot to go to the site at 2 pm, but had no problems ordering 1 at 3 pm. Considering the problems the rest of you had, perhaps it was a good thing I forgot.

    I'm not sure how long but I KNOW Grayskull was still available at 6:42 pm EST. starbasetoys' post saying they were sold out was 7:39 EST, so he sold out somewhere inbetween those times.

    The Lightning McQueen car sold out first though. It didn't seem to take very long to sell out, but in all fairness, it was the cheapest exclusive.

    I'm REALLY surprised Grayskull is out of stock 2nd. I thought Lobo would be first, Giganta 2nd and Grayskull 3rd. Anyhow, I'm very excited at how well MOTUC has sold so far. Go MOTU!

    Nope. My order did not go through and I didn't get to "see" that it didn't go through until after work (right now.)

    MAJOR bummer!

    So much for the 72 hours the Digital River and Mattel reps told me to wait before getting concerned.

    i just barely got my order in (7:21pm EST). I was debating for a while whether I wanted to spend that much, but finally gave in. Good thing I didn't wait much longer.

    Some of us....like me didnt get an email confirmation. We are in limbo. If you got an email that says that your order is in process then you are fine. The Mattel rep told me that product wont ship for a few days so that means your order is being processed. But if you actually got a confirmation email, then you are good to go....must be nice

    No, my e-mail says it's proof of purchase. If I go to www.findmyorder.com, though, the status says "Order in Process."

    I ordered Lobo only, though. I didn't want KG.
