MattyCollector Doubles Up on Masters of the Universe and DC Universe Classics on 10/15 – Don’t Miss Poison Ivy!

It’s a big sales day today at Matty as our friend, Logistics, has us doubling up on both Masters of the Universe Classics and DC Universe Classics. On the Club Eternia front, you’ve got both Rattlor and Frosta for sub figures, and the Cuisinart-inspired Cy-Chop if you signed up for the 30th Anniversary sub. From Club Infinite Earths it’s Poison Ivy and Elasti-Girl, plus the DC All-Stars with Red Robin and Superboy Prime on Matty for the first time.

For convenience, here’s the MattyCollector.com bundle page for 10/15. Good shopping!

Masters of the Universe Classics Mekaneck, Dragon Blaster Skeletor, and Snake Men on Sale 9/17

The Matty logistics shuffle that rendered August void of MOTUC aside from Sir Laser-Lot, but they’re back with a vengeance for the September sale on 9/17. Meckaneck, Dragon Blaster Skeletor, and the Snake Men 2-pack will put the whammy on those of us with Club Eternia subs.

DC has the Club Infinite Earths Black Mask and one of the last hurrah JLU 3-packs, with Vandal Savage, Bats, and Supes. WWE will have Tully Blanchard joining the Arn Anderson, King Kong Bundy, and Diamond Dallas Page figures that seem to be lingering on the site.

For convenience, here’s the link to the bundle page for the 9/17 sale.

DC Universe Classics Mirror Master Headlines Matty Sales Day on 8/15 and Young Justice 2-Pack Gets a Reprieve

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.

DC Universe Classics Atrocitus and Metron and Masters of the Universe Classics Horde Prime and Griffin on Sale 6/15

A few Mattel posts tonight – first off, a reminder that this Friday is the sale date for June, with a couple big hitters for DC and Masters. I’m looking forward to getting my Metron (only available with the Club Infinite Earths subscription or in the after-market) to add to my Cosmic Odyssey display. Atrocitus will need some creative posing to make him more imposing.

As far as Masters, the Griffin is awesome, but I’m not sure if I can make room for him or the other sub figures (Horde Prime and Snake Man-At-Arms) this month.

The Voltron Green Lion is also on sale, but I really wonder how many folks are going a la carte for Voltron – probably just the folks who found out about the subscription after pre-orders had closed out.

Here’s the link for the bundle page for the 6/15 sale, for your convenience. Happy shopping!
