  • I really want Stay Puft but I can't afford him. I will be mopey today and then get over it. Bummer though as its the first GB item I have to pass on. Hopefully he will get a re-release down the road without the worthless packaging. I can appreciate cool packaging but I hate knowing I'm paying for it. Especially because that diorama is too big for me to actually make use of.. A hollow unposeable half plush Stay Puft with ugly seam lines is not worth $70 bucks. I like the item, and I like that its big but I $50 like it. Though if I had the cash I would pay the $70 because I am a sucker.


  • Hrm. Little worried about today’s sale. The https: addresses are taking 5x as long to load as their http: counterparts. I’m also impressed, as always, that they had to take down the all-star sale items for today.
    Why do we put up with this?

    • I take most of it back! That was easier than usual today. Don’t know why the secured functions were slow, but the order is placed!

      And… still bummed that they won’t let you add a few all-stars into the shipping crate. Dumb, matty. Dumb.

  • Hope it goes easy for everyone trying today. I'm shooting for 2 Swamp Things, Kilowog, Marlena and Stay Puft. Should I start sobbing and smacking my head against the keyboard now?

  • 4 minutes ago everything was fine, but NOW you can start banging your head 🙂

  • Got right to the order page and right to the address confirmation with ZERO issue, but am now WSODing en route to billing. I'm going to be severely ill-pleased if I don't get this Stay Puft…

  • I forgot how much fun this was! It's like seeing an old friend.

    And this old friend stole your wife and stabbed you a bunch of times. And you got a restraining order called a subscription, but here you are in a dark alley with this dude and his knife collection.

  • Refreshed right at 11 CST, been sitting on that auto-refresher page for 8 minutes now. There's nothing I want, but my wife really wanted that Monster High doll, and she's gonna be crushed if I can't get through.

  • Thank you for your interest in Mattycollector products……You won't be PURCHASING any of these products due to our terrible site, but thanks for your interest. And hey, we'll let you look at this cool white screen and smirking jackass for 15 minutes and then you can continue on to our site to see pictures of our products that you can no longer buy.

  • got both cpt glenn and swamp thing in my cart immediately. been stuck on wsod since. 15min and counting.

  • Holy crap I'm through and got everything. I still stand by my above statement, however.

  • Well, after a nerve-wracking wait at the WSOD that reminded me all too keenly of last week's hideous encounter with Hasbro Toy Shop, I'm pleased to say that I managed to get my order placed within 10 minutes as well. So while still not the most pleasant online shopping experience, Mattel has managed to do a better job in this instance and now it's all fingers crossed that everything arrives in one piece! Hope everyone else is managing to get what they want!

  • Took 16 minutes but got Cringer, didn't look like anything was sold out as I left…

  • Managed to get in and out with everything I wanted at 12:11 ET. A lot of WSOD along the way but mostly at the billing page. Better than last year. Then again not getting logged out while your trying to get to the billing page could be beaten easily.

    Also I still hate CAPCHA. Had to refresh it a few times due to not being able to read what I had to type.

  • took me 20 minutes in the end. but got what i wanted. i've only been doing these for a little more than a year now, but little by little the matty experience seems to have gotten significantly better. i don't know how much of that to attribute to DR and how much to increased production levels or increased subscribers or people just giving up and going to ebay. probably a little bit of everything.

    • Which is also how much he cost in ££ too…coincidence or are Matty now charging by the minute on their site, hmm?

  • HA! I refreshed my swamp thing order page at noon, and was forced to wait through WSOD for 20 minutes. Then, I opened a new tab, and was redirected to the swamp thing page no problem. I put it in cart, and waited for another five minutes at WSOD. Then I started rapidly refreshing the page myself, and what do you know? I put in my information, WSOD. More self-refreshing. Got through in less than ten seconds. I finally put in my order and now I"m eagerly awaiting my confirmation email. That just goes to show that Matty is a liar. Refreshing the page does put you through to the site. Blow me, Mattel.

    • That last sentence is quite a visual, lol. Will never look at Matty the same way.

  • Got Marlena (Glenn)/Cringer after 40 minutes of WSOD. Still a nerve-wracking experience. Not looking forward to doing this for the new figures, wind raider, and she-ra 2.0

  • All the All-Star Sale items sold out rather abruptly and suspiciously… I was planning to get a Skeletor today but no luck.

      • But now every single item is sold out. I've been checking pretty regularly and I hadn't noticed that anything had an "almost gone" label. Maybe a ton of people buying exclusives bought these too, but I agree with Merso: it seems suspicious.

  • Alright… got a couple Swamp Things ordered without too much agita. Pretty $%#&ing annoyed, though, that the all-star sale stuff magically "sold out" just before noon.

  • Wow, no WSOD for me. I'd forgotten about the sale, too. Popped in at around :39 minute mark, picked up Marlena, and checked out.

    Oh well. "Unlucky in love, lucky in toy collecting," I guess.

  • I suppose I should log in to this thing if I'm gonna comment so much! Finally got through, 20 minutes to get Ghoulia in my cart, and then another 10 to get through the billing process. My wife will be happy I got it for her, and I'm happy to not have to pay scalper prices for it on ebay.

  • The only thing sold out so far is Polly Pocket. Stay Puft is "Almost Gone".

  • Got stay puft in 22 minutes. While I’m relieved, I’m kind of frustrated that my friend was turned away from the sdcc booth twice because they had reached their “limit” for the day.

  • Well, we’re past the noon “Zerg Rush” and the only things gone so far are Stay Puft & the MotU Poly Pocket set.

    If the stuff hangs around long enough, I may just cave and get that Voltron figure.

  • I have to admit I'm a little surprised. 12+ hours later and Stay Puft & Polly Pocket She-Ra of all things are sold out while Queen Marlena and Swamp Things aren't even "almost gone"!

  • In hindsight I wish I wouldn't have had wasted my time and frustration levels sitting on Matty trying to buy the queen and swamp thing but if I didn't do it I am sure they'd be sold out right now.

  • Oddly enough, now – the day after the sale – most of the "All-Star" figures are available again. Hmmm…
