To be fair, Mattel did warn us that some figures this year would have no day of sale stock, but for a character with a vintage counterpart like Clamp Champ? Seems like an odd choice. But with some new reports of MOTUC overstock hitting Big Lots, that might explain why management might be a little trigger shy on keeping the production levels at previous levels. All the other Masters should be available – that’s Icer from the new Filmation sub and New Adventures He-Man. Plus the customer service stock for Dragon Blaster Skeletor, Granymyr, and Filmation Randor still show as Coming Soon – I think that means they didn’t sell out during Early Access, which I missed last Thursday. Not that I intended to buy anything, but it seems like a better proposition for subscribers if Early Access were open from whenever it starts all the way through the actual sale. It seems arbitrary to open it just for a few hours on one day in advance.
On the DC side, I know a bunch of Captain Marvel fans are looking forward to Captain Marvel Junior, aka Freddy Freeman. And Watchmen fans are getting Nite Owl. I guess Mattel is holding back the Ozymandias reveal for the big show this week.
