Stratos and Adam Strange/Starfire almost sold out

According to Mattel’s Facebook page, Stratos and the Adam Strange/Starfire two-pack are almost sold out, so if you’ve been holding off on ordering, now’s the time.

And now, may I say–Stratos is almost sold out? In four days? Really? Stratos? Wow. I mean, I’m sure he wasn’t produced in the same sort of numbers as Skeletor, but jeez…I guess the ol’ flying monkey man has more fans that any of us realized.

That, or MOTUC is really picking up in popularity, and collectors have learned their lesson about not waiting too long to order.

  • That, or MOTUC is really picking up in popularity, and collectors have learned their lesson about not waiting too long to order.

    I was thinking both, but more the latter.

  • You may also lend the fact that MOTUC has an exTREMEly high resale rate on the 'secondary' market.

  • I've been thinking about this and I think it's a combo of three factors:

    1. Speculators fueled by sell-outs of the previous figures.

    2. New collectors catching on.

    3. Smaller production run for Stratos.

    This is all speculation, I don't know for a fact that Stratos has a smaller run, but it makes sense. I've seen the speculator and new collector sides in person, but that is anecdotal and not neccesarily indicative of a widespread trend.

  • I just hope they come up with some sort of subscription plan so I can save on shipping. Still even loose I could sell the ones I buy online and make back what I spent so there isn't much risk with MOTUC so far. 31 for a single figure is tough, though if I could ever find DCUC in stores I guess I wouldn't mind so much.

    I agree that if Stratos really is that close to being sold out that it is probably because of speculators buying a bunch and hoping to resell online.

  • Man… stupid birthday on Tuesday. I want my Starfire and Adam Strange now!

    *kicks dirt*

    Now I need to buy a 52 Animal Man.

  • That is really bizarre, he's the one character so far they've released for the line I've never been keen on, but I got one to support the line and because he is a new character, bizarre or not. But this fast? Wow.

    On another note, didn't they just say on Facebook how they needed to make certain to sell a certain number of DCUC sets to keep making new ones, and now they're almost sold out? How can they say they're not hitting numbers if they still sell out? Weird.
