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.
As always, for convenience, here’s the link to the MattyCollector bundle page for the 12/17 sale.

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!

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.

It’s sales day on MattyCollector.com – something I often and gladly forget because I’m subbed up like a toy gangsta – and DC Universe Classics Mirror Master from Club Infinite Earths is the headliner. Here’s the link to the handy August 15 bundle page. Due to our arch-enemy, Logistics, there’s no figure from the Club Eternia subscription, but if you still need a Masters of the Universe Classics fix, you can pick up this month’s figure from the 30th Anniversary sub, Sir Laser-Lot.
I’m not a big fan of the design Geoff Johns came up with when he was 8 years old. To some of you I know that means I’m a cranky old guy who doesn’t doesn’t know how to have fun with toys (yes, I also was underwhelmed by Vykron). But to each his own – if you’re a Laser-Lot fan, I’m glad Mattel made him for you.
Also, with Young Justice subscriptions at the halfway point to hit the minimums for the green light, Mattel extended the sub order window by 2 weeks – and delayed the ship date (only if YJ fans buy enough, we keep getting reminded) by three months. I’ll keep hoping that Mattel eventually gets to the point where they’ll do a true pre-order – that means no thermometer – because it will mean they’ve made a good enough product that they trust we’ll buy in mass quantities.
