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:
- Weapons Rack
- Grayskull Display Stands
- 12″ Superman
- 12″ General Zod
- 12″ Lex Luthor
- DC Retro Action Super Heroes Sinestro Corps Sinestro
- Moss Man (reissue)
- CARS Barry Diesel
Good luck to all, and may CAPTCHA not be your downfall.
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.
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.
I hadn't thought of that. I guess that's a good way to encourage people to order more to make the shipping less ridiculous since you're in for $10 minimum either way
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!
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.
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.
Got my Panthor an hour late. I was extremely surprised/pleased to find everything still available.
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.
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".
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 waited an hour and got on with no problems and got my panthor
Did someone say there wasn't an instant sell-out?
This has been an abject failure, cancel the line immediately!!
I want a panthor but don't have the $$ right now.
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.
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.
