Border Patrol: WWE Elite Scale Play Set – Must See!

Border Patrol - WWE Elite Scale play set by Extreme Sets

For this edition of Border Patrol, we’re just featuring one eBay auction. But it’s a doozy!

I am instantly wary of eBay auctions listed with qualifiers like “OOAK HTF L@@K!!!” in the title. This auction is not titled like that; I’m the one applying the labels, because if you love action figures, you’ve got to check it out.

This play set was built to accommodate a Mattel WWE Elite Scale ring – that’s not included in the auction but you can pick up an Elite Scale ring with free shipping at the Mattel Shop this week. The play set comes with pretty much everything else (minus the figures, naturally) to give your wrestling action figures a full-size arena to put on a show. It comes with a couple of entrance sets, a Jumbotron and speakers that are suspended from the ceiling, and a custom built audience, complete with wrasslin’ slogans on their t-shirts.

This was a prototype built for an ambitious but ultimately underfunded Kickstarter project from last year. Be prepared to see a huge price tag, and know that this play set is so huge that the seller is only accepting bids from people who can pick it up (in a pickup truck, most likely) from its location in Southern California. Even if this puts you out of the running, you should still take a look at this one-of-a-kind WWE Elite Scale play set.

In AFP’s Border Patrol, we scour active eBay auctions for customized action figures that you won’t want to let slip by!

Mattycollector April Sale is all Masters of the Universe Classics

First shot at exclusive Hover Robots during Early Access

Mattycollector April sale - Hover Robots, Angella, Eldor, and Glimmer

Masters of the Universe Classics is the sole focus for Mattycollector’s April sale, with Princess of Power’s Angella available for day of sales beyond those set aside for Club Eternia subscribers. She-Ravers also get another crack at Glimmer (Club Eternia, April 2014), while Eldor (Club Eternia, October 2014) is back to please the Preternia / Powers of Grayskull fans.

But Club Eternia subscribers get a rare opportunity in Early Access, when the “travelling convention” exclusive Hover Robots 3-pack will be available online for the first time. Judging from previous sales of these exclusives, like Strobo and Goat Man, expect a very quick sell-out at the start. If you miss out, you’ll get more chances throughout the rest of the year.

April’s Early Access starts at 8AM PST tomorrow, and All Access starts at 9AM on Wednesday. Good luck!

Border Patrol: Marvel Legends Rogue, WWE Seth Rollins, and Transformers Optimus Prime

Border Patrol - Marvel Legends Rogue, WWE Seth Rollins, Transformers Optimus Prime

In this edition of Border Patrol, we’ve got some tried and true favorites plus a new champ:

  • Marvel Legends Rogue by Loose Collector – the DC Direct Hush Poison Ivy has been a go-to head for the likes of Rogue and Jean Grey for years, but the Loose Collector crew is one of the few capable of executing the recipe so cleanly – ends Wednesday, April 8 at 7:03PM PST
  • WWE Wrestlemania 31 Seth Rollins by highlytales88 – just how much is a WWE Heavyweight championship worth? – after snatching the title from Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 31, this Seth Rollins custom skyrocketed in price, getting bid up by fans looking to secure memorabilia from his championship run – ends Thursday, April 9 at 4:57PM PST
  • Transformers Masterpiece Optimus Prime by billmeistercustoms – it’s been a while since I’ve seen a Masterpiece Optimus Prime, but with as many as there have been, and as many as there will be, it makes you wonder just how much more Takara and Hasbro could charge for a metallic paint job – ends Wednesday, April 8 at 11:16AM PST

No Joke – Mattycollector Convention Exclusives 20% Off Sale – 24 Hours Only, Starting Tomorrow

Mattycollector convention exclusives 24 hour sale

Mattel is continuing to clear out remaining inventory at Mattycollector – on sale tomorrow for 20% off are DC Universe and Masters of the Universe Classics figures from San Diego Comic-Con and the “traveling conventions.” Most of these are from the past two years – but I’m surprised that Matty still has some of the Mo-Larr vs Skeletor 2-packs from way back in 2010 in stock. I’m a Robot Chicken fan, but maybe the Eternian Dentist was too much of a stretch for the hardcore He-Fans.

The sale at Mattycollector starts at 9AM PST tomorrow, April 2nd. It lasts for 24 hours, but judging from previous sales, your best bet is to get there at the opening bell if there’s something you really want. No April Fools, and happy shopping!
