Contest > Get the Sell Out (Mattycollector)

All right, this one’s easy enough. Go through the sales list for Mattycollector next Tuesday and list your guesses for when each MOTU item will sell out. Here are the rules:

  • Guess the date, hour, and minute each MOTU will sell out (Battle Cat, Trap-Jaw, Man-At-Arms, and the display stands). You can also say “no sell out” if you think it won’t sell out in less than a week.
  • In the unlikely event of a tie, the winner will be determined by a random drawing.
  • No entries after 11:59am EDT on February 16 will be considered.
  • Contest will end a.) on February 23; b.) whenever the last item sells out, or c.) as soon as someone has an unbeatable preponderance of accurate guesses–whichever comes first.
  • The specific sell-out times will be determined by me, using whatever means I decide to use. If you don’t like it, don’t enter the contest.
  • At least 10 people have to enter for me to pick a winner–otherwise it’s too easy.
  • Power Pals are eligible this time, because I’m feeling generous. Only Ghostal family members are excluded.

Winner gets a $25 Amazon gift certificate. Good luck!

    Well, while Man-At-Arms is listed as "Almost Gone!", he's still in stock Thursday afternoon, and so Eurocoin wins!

    Since I'm guessing Eurocoin lives in Europe, I'm glad this isn't one of those contests where I need to mail anything…

    @Crazy: he's actually still for sale right now.

  3. Did Man-At-Arms ever actually go on sale? People were saying as much as three minutes after noon that he was sold out.

    OK, the three finalists are Wes Grogan, Eurocoin and RageTreb.

    Trap Jaw sold out at 12:19pm EST, while Battle Cat sold out at 12:32.

    RageTreb is currently ahead with a spread of -6 minutes, but the MAA guesses are so diverse they could easily throw the whole game. So whoever has the closest guess for the MAA sellout wins! (Obviously anytime after Thursday at 4:13 means Eurocoin wins.)

    Wes Grogan: Tuesday at 5:30pm

    RageTreb: Wednesday at 6pm

    Eurocoin: Thursday at 4:13pm

    Those stands are totally going to sell out just not right away. The completists are going to need one for every figure they have so far. And you can bet they made these in limited quantities that they won't discuss.
