It’s Sy-Klone Day!

Sy-Klone Masters of the Universe Classics

It’s that time again! There hasn’t been a major non-sub item since the Eternian Guards pack in January, so it will be interesting to see how today’s sale tests Mattycollector.com.

I think it was probably a bad idea to have three very high-demand items–the Weapons Rack, Panthor and the reissued Moss Man on the same day–but the fact that it’s happening hardly surprises me.

Here’s the link to the all-in-one page.

On sale today:

Good luck to all, and may CAPTCHA not be your downfall.

  • Can't wait to get the Retro Sinestro! Oh wait–I could just go down to Toys R Us and buy 1 of the 7 or so that have been on the shelves for 4 months. Good luck to everyone who is buying.

  • Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Digital River, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy credit card and thy broadband connection they comfort me.

  • No longer being in the sub this will be a harrowing experience if I try for Panthor.

  • I hadn't even considered that a large Panthor demand may gum up trying to buy a Weapons Rack more than the rather easy process for the Guards.

    Good luck everyone, I think it will be fine.

  • I'm curious to see if the stands finally run out today.

    If a lot of other subscription collectors have been doing what I have (specifically waiting for a non-sub item sale day where they're already committed to paying extra shipping) then Matty might see another jump in demand for them.

    I mean, if nothing else, you gotta get a set to be a floor beneath your weapons rack… 😉

  • Hrmmm…not sure if it's my computer or something else, but the comment editor doesn't seem to be working.

    Anyhow…as I was going to go on to say. Got in and out in under a minute.

    Hope everyone else is able to get what they want today.

  • Things had gone really well up until the billing screen at which point I've been on WSOD for 10 minutes and I have to leave for an important meeting. Guess I'll have to get Panthor at some later reissue. Should still be able to get Luthor later today. Sad.

  • 3 WSoDs, totalling 12 minutes.

    1 Rack, 1 pack of Stands, and done.

    Not as easy as the Jan sale day, but easy enough.

  • indeed – easy enough.

    I just left WSOD up for about 30 minutes, refreshing only thrice. Then about 11:24a CST got in and had no problems after that whatsoever

    Sinestro and Mossman are had.

  • A minute WSOD when I first checked in and another minute while proceeding to checkout, but otherwise smooth. Panthor and Moss Man are mine.

  • I was finally given enough time to type, and my order went through.. I really just need to start doing things an hour later… few things have been selling out that fast, and it lets us beat the rush

  • Am I crazy for finding the $10.55 shipping for a pair of weapons racks OUTRAGEOUS? That's about $1.40 less than the 2 subs we have and 1 Panthor alone probably weighs 4 of the weapons rack. Is USPS really that much?

  • It must be something about the web connection here at work, but I keep getting refreshes through all purchasing, shipping, and billing pages for ~40 minutes until it finally fails fatally. Then I open a new window and waltz right through unscathed.

    I'd like to just wait until an hour in to buy, but I am so nervous about the many 5 minutes sell-outs that I'm Pavlovian about the noon EST log-on.

  • @ misterbigbo:

    me too.. but that really hasn't happened recently except for split shipment figures… looks like waiting an half hour or so might be the way to go

  • Got through in under 10 minutes. Ordered another Panthor, 2 weapons racks, 2 sets of stands and a Moss Man to deflock. Now I wait and see how long it takes to get here from the distribution center which is about an hour away.

  • I was hoping for a Panthor Day.

    I was getting WSOD all over the place. It even came up on the billing screen when I didn't even click anything, so I switched over to a different tab and was able to finish.

  • I forgot how much I hated the WSOD. This is the first time since November when I was trying to get my King Grayskull that I've had to fight the rush.

    I was still able to get my weapon racks though. I think Mattel seems to have done a decent job of meeting demand after nearly three years.

  • Did someone say there wasn't an instant sell-out?

    This has been an abject failure, cancel the line immediately!!

  • Got out of my meeting and while the site shows no sell outs, when I try to buy Panthor he is indeed sold out and it won't let me continue. Well at least Luthor will join Superman and Zod. Guess I'll be waiting for a Panthor reissue.

  • I had a "business lunch" and returned to the office and ordered up a Panthor at 1:30pm EST no freaking problem. I think the new Digital River requirement to type in the two secret words of the day has really slowed down the "ebay scalper flippers" and other "drifters and low-life losers".

  • System worked fine. I was like Rich, busy with work when prompted by poeghostal reading to check out the day's list at like 2:00 p.m. I thought I was out of luck but got my Sinestro, Sy-Klone, two sets of stands and weapons rack.

  • Got my Panthor an hour late. I was extremely surprised/pleased to find everything still available.

  • Got a Panthor and Moss Man without any problems at all. I'm impressed, and I hope things continue this way because this was painless.

  • @ lemonfreshviper22:

    no. mattel actually uses a third party shipper, who pick up the boxes for them and take them to the post office. figure that one out.

    the postal service ain't the outright value it used to be, but it does not cost them what matty is charging us to ship.

  • OoooooKay…. So I was at work, real damn busy, but managed to log on and without ANY trouble get Sy, Panthor, AND MM. Huh. And this was stretched out between 1230 and 1300. So, I have to say this was the BEST month so far as far as ordering goes. Be it the anti-bot scrambler, better stock, or less interest, SOMEthing is working!

  • @ lemonfreshviper22:

    When I knew that these were going to ship UPS, and arrive at my door in 3 days, then I understood the cost. Now that they're using the 3rd party carrier to deliver them to your local sorting center, it means Matty is saving a lot of money, and you'll see your item in about 7-10 business days if you're lucky. So yeah, the shipping cost is ridiculous.

  • When did they change their shipping? It was nice last year as I could get things UPS sent to work, but I cannot get USPS sent to work because USPS goes through the mail room while UPS goes to the front desk.
