DC Universe Classics New 52 Batman and Robin by ACCustomFigures.com – this pair of the New 52 Caped Crusaders are listed separately but have the odd distinction that Robin is kicking the crap out of Batman – the Boy Wonder is closing in on $2,500, while Bats is floundering at just over $200 – Batman ends Jan 30, 2013 19:04:43 PST and Robin ends Jan 30, 2013 19:01:18 PST
With Granymyr, Mosquitor, and Procrustus from Masters of the Universe Classics; Platinum, Tin, and Lead for DC Universe Classics; and the final Justice League Unlimited 3-pack with Toyman, Firefly, and Dr. Destiny; there’s plenty that will be on sale on Monday. But Mattel also sent out email yesterday saying that shipments that include Granymyr or Procrustus would be delayed.
We’ve seen Matty doubling up on both MOTUC and DCUC the past two months due to delays caused by our good friend “Logistics” – so it’s no surprise that we’re still seeing the impact of the back up this month. I am guessing that we aren’t seeing the delayed products moving to January because the income statement doesn’t like 2012 product moving to 2013.
The first of Matty’s Flash Sales are on, and it’s none other than the classic MOTUC (is that redundant?) Evil-Lyn. When the sale page first went up, not everything on the Black Friday / Cyber Monday bundle page was discounted – now all items have sale prices, with the exception of the Temple of Darkness Sorceress. I placed an order this morning, and also got an additional shipping discount that was oddly a penny more than the shipping cost.
Oddly, I couldn’t get the total I calculated to match what Digital River quoted me – but their total was less than mine, so what me worry? Happy shopping!
“Better Than Black Friday” Sale
Sale Starts: 11/21/12 9:00 a.m. PT
Sale Ends: 11/27/12 9:00 a.m. PT
This is it… our “Better than Black Friday” sale! Here’s your chance to snag special offers, surprise items, and great deals, some at up to 30% off. The sale starts on the Wednesday morning before Black Friday and continues for six days, ending at 9:00 a.m. PT on Tuesday morning, November 27th. Be sure you check in often on Monday November 26th because flash sales and special pricing will come and go* and you never know what you might find!
*Please Note: Mattel reserves the right to change the sale price at any time and all sales are final.
It’s Thanksgiving! – that special day of the year that we stuff ourselves to the gills with turkey, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce; and then head out into the cold to await the Black Friday sales. But no, not me – I’m going to sit back and enjoy the warmth indoors, and maybe pick up a toy or two just with a few clicks of the mouse.
I guess our old friend, Logistics, has struck again, because just like last month, we’ve got double helpings of both Masters of the Universe Classics and DC Universe Classics again this month. For Club Eternia, it’s the Filmation Randor and Dekker, with a bonus of Castle Grayskull Man wrapping up the 30th Anniversary sub. For Club Infinite Earths, it’s Uncle Sam and Constantine.
Is it just me, or is this month’s offerings lacking a big hitter? Rounding out the lineup is the final Ghostbusters offering, Courtroom Ray, who makes for a pretty tame send-off for the line that I think most people hoped would deliver more; and a (final?) JLU 3-pack.
Maybe Matty should have extended the Castle Grayskull (congrats, folks!) pre-order minimum cut-off to today – at least there’d be some excitement. Here’s the bundle page for 11/15 for your convenience.
