Since the Mattycollector Cyber Monday sale kicked off last Tuesday, four items have sold out. Masters of the Universe Classics Granymyr was first to go, during Early Access. Since then, Hordak, Orko, and Battle Armor Skeletor have joined him.
What could we see during the hourly flash sales? I think the Spirit of Hordak may come out of hiding. Do you think customer service stock for the Horde Trooper 2-pack and subscriber-only figures like Sea Hawk could show up?

I am still trying to wrap my head around why this eight day sale is called Cyber Monday, but I probably don’t have the mental faculties required to comprehend it. But if you’re heading over to Mattycollector for it, here’s what you can expect to find. When I checked late last night in Early Access, I found only one item had sold out – that was the Masters of the Universe Classics Granymyr for $68 (normally $85). For a lot of folks, that discount would have amounted to free shipping, because that sucker is heavy. Congrats to the Early Access folks who picked him up.
Some of the remaining deals jumped out at me. The Eternian Palace Guards 2-pack didn’t show up for me when I looked in the morning, but they’re there at the top of the page now – and for $27, half off the regular (bumped up) cost of $54. Also half off, and an exceptionally good deal is Battleground Teela – just $10. If you don’t have her, get her!
For those of you who have been holding out for San Diego Comic-Con exclusives – all of the action figure exclusives (except for Monster High, if you count those) are available and on sale. Rokkon and Stonedar, Batusi Batman, big-hooded Captain Marvel, Man of Steel, and even the mini He-Man and Skeletor figures are there. This year I skipped on all of them, except for the MOTU mini-figures, and even on sale I’m probably letting them go. How about you guys? What’s on your list for Matty Cyber Monday?

I’ve got a feeling that the marketing folks at Mattel just gave up when trying to name this sale that starts tomorrow. Sure, the Cyber Monday sale includes a Monday, but it starts on a Tuesday and it lasts eight days (not seven, as the promo claims) when you count Early Access. To make your brain jump through more hoops, Mattel highlights four items out of the “Cyber 6″ (shown above) – these items aren’t discounted at all during the sale.
Most non Cyber 6 items will be up to 30% off. Some will be up to 50% off. And then you can get 10% or 20% more discount if you spend over $100 or $200. And then next Monday (ahh, Cyber Monday!) there will be hourly flash sales, including the two non-revealed Cyber 6 items that aren’t discounted. Confused yet? Come up with a name for this sale that makes sense and you can probably get a job at Mattel.

DC Universe Classics has one of its last big months on Mattycollector, with Ozymandias wrapping up the Black Freighter Watchmen subscription and much-wanted Batman villain Ra’s al Ghul revealing his ugly face – although I’m not sure that was intended. On the Masters of the Universe Classics side, fan-vote winner Geldor should please the mini-comics fans.
And the men of Masters now have a companion to SkirtGate – some are unhappy with the shape of the overlays on some of the new male figures, like Sea Hawk – the engineering on them add some unwanted girth to the already exaggerated torsos.
Here’s your links to early access on 11/14 at 8AM PST (Constantine and Elasti-Girl) and the bundle page for the regular sale on 11/15 at 9AM PST. Enjoy!

If there was any doubt that Broom would be coming to Masters of the Universe Classics with Madame Razz, then check out the file name on the image. Mattel was not as forthcoming with Loo-Kee. Regardless, Princess of Power fans should be pleased with the Mattel’s final teases this year.
Wrap Up Bonus Reveal
We’ve got late breaking news from Sunday! Fans were swept up in the excitement of this MOTUC accessory, which magically appeared along with a small visitor from Etheria.

Now we know how we’ll be getting that Robot Faker head – it will come with New Adventures Skeletor. And yes, the sword that Mattel teased at NYCC belongs to Flutterina. She has an actual skirt, so we can’t complain about the skirts that Mattel has been unintentionally giving the female characters in Masters of the Universe Classics recently.
And the latest reveal in the booth – Broom! For you Princess of Power fans, does that signal a Madame Razz in 2014?
2013 Comikaze: Mattypalooza Panel Reveals
The Mattypalooza panel with Toy Guru and special guest Stan Lee himself just wrapped up! MOTUC fans got a look at three awesome reveals, and now it’s your turn to see these great toys that are coming your way…
Masters of the Universe® Classics Flutterina™
The owner of the mysterious sword seen at NYCC has been revealed! The first Flutterina™ since 1985, this Princess of Power® is scheduled for August 2014 as part of Club Eternia®. She features giant articulated fairy wings, perfect for soaring straight into danger!
Masters of the Universe® Classics Skeletor®
More wreck and ruin come your way in 2014 with this third quarterly item in Club Eternia®. The newest variant of the Evil Lord of Destruction™ features an amazing sculpt from The Four Horsemen, and comes with a removable power staff and a fan-demanded battle damaged Faker® head for your existing Faker® figure.

Hope you had a good Halloween! Here’s some treats from the gang at Mattel.
1) With regards to 2014 / 2015, you’ve said that since there are two Snake Men left it’s likely to see them split across the two years. Does the same kind of rationale apply to Stridor and Night Stalker? Or is there too much tooling to consider them in the “big hitters” category that qualify for the next two years?
Our goal for 2014-2015 is to release all of the basic figures. How many beast or vehicles released has yet to be announced. We can tell you the more tooling a beast or vehicle has the less likely it will be released ?(unless a basic vintage figure like “Gwildor” etc.. which we will prioritize).

The October sale date for Mattycollector is here (here’s the bundle page for October), and it’s a big hit to your wallet if you’re a Club Eternia and Club Infinite Earths subscriber. For Masters of the Universe Classics, Mantenna and Lord Dactus double up for the monthly, as the September figure was pushed back. On top of that you’ve got the Horde Troopers 2-pack. The Weapons Pak is optional, but another $20 if you want recolored accessories and Kowl. Then there’s Nepthu (who?) for the Club Filmation figure. For DC Universe Classics, it’s Ocean Master.
Early Access is on right now. Merman was supposed to be up, but all I see is a sold-out Hordak. Black Mask, Lead, and the Weapons Pak are still available.

Mattycollector front man Toy Guru, accompanied by Cornboy and Eric Treadaway from the Four Horsemen, updated New York Comic Con attendees with Mattel’s collector-oriented plans for 2014. For their healthiest line, Masters of the Universe Classics, it was business as usual, but with Stan Lee’s Comikaze in a couple of weeks, the reveals were at a minimum – Flogg from New Adventures and a tease of Robot Faker. On the fan vote for New Adventures 2015, Mara won – no big surprise, as I’m sure many people who did vote but didn’t care about New Adventures just went for the female character.
On the DC front, the four revealed figures for the failed 2014 Club Infinite Earths sub will be released as day of figures quarterly, with the jail-suited Doomsday as a SDCC 2014 exclusive. I have a hard time understanding the jail suit over the infinitely better “unleashed” version – I can’t believe that the better sales numbers that version would yield didn’t justify the increased tooling.
And there’s more – check out our video of the panel. We missed a small portion when the recording hit the limit, but that was just Two Bad and Glimmer, and you’ve seen them before, right?
