No interest at all in that.

Hey Matty Fans! A quick update... due to scheduling conflicts we regret we'll be unable to attend NYCC this fall. In light of this change, we're going to be bringing the quota of Goat Man allocated for NY to SDCC this year. Hope to see as many of you as possible in San Diego!


No presence at NYCC? Does not speak well for Mattycollector

They do display more than Matty stuff at the NYCC so it's possible there's something else going on closer to LA or maybe NYCC is in conflict with the fall toy fair this year...



BTW, anyone else notice that baby Skeletor is already sold out?...

Speculative Buying anyone :roll:

Its like that Admiral Ackbar bust from last year-- that sold out instantly-- despite every person on every board that collected Gentle Giant- said it was a travesty and wouldn't want it in their collection-- so whose buying these things... Is it April 1st again and no one said anything..

I just figured someone hit the wrong button, and it should read COMING SOON. It is Digital River, after all.

I have to say I am very discouraged about the announcement that Masters of the Universe Classics is ending in 2015.

It's one more blow to a longtime action figure collector that has seen one cool line after another fall by the wayside -- with not much taking its place.

I can't afford to get into the really high-end, three-digit price tag collectibles, and it just seems there's just not much else out there.

Now Masters. :(

It's very discouraging.

Did you read the rest of that?...

Only the branding is going to end, if there's enough interest to keep going the line will just be getting a new name/look.

Mattycollector forum. Same way that DCUC became the signature series. Of course, if no one is willing to pay the higher prices in 2016 (if it gets that far), then it too could go the way of DC signature series.

Can you feel the power? The subscription period for the 2015 Club Eternia® is open now! This year fans know to hit that button early, because subscribers who sign up before Friday, 7/25 get a free set of Stackable Stands. And, there’s also another reason to sign up now.

This year subscriptions are limited to a set number, and once we hit that amount, that’s it… no more subscriptions will be sold. Kowl™, MOTUC’s Know-It Owl™ is helping us track the progress as we near the quota limit. We’ll be updating the Kowlometer twice a week, until the subscription quota is met or 8/18, whichever comes first.

2015 Club Eternia®Club Eternia
•Early Availability Opens: Friday, 6/27 at 9 a.m. PT. No figures will be revealed, but everyone who orders by Friday, 7/25 at 11:59 a.m. PT gets a free set of Stackable Stands!
•Club-Exclusive Figures Announced: Friday, 7/25 at 12:00 p.m. PT. Figures revealed at Mattypalooza Fan Panel at SDCC and here immediately after.
•Subscription Period Closes: Availability continues until subscription quota is met or Monday, 8/18 at 11:59 p.m. PT, whichever comes first

Great-- another scare tactic marketing push..

I just don't understand Matty Collectors Business model (or advisors)

SO- they were so worried about it making the quota next year they decide to limit the number people can buy-- so they will make the last year a defacto "exclusive"--- it just doesn't make any sense..

I purchased a 2015 MOTUC sub this morning. I'm sure that it will go through.

When did Clamp Champ become available, I thought he was a sub only figure? Man they really need to shut down this line. The time has come and gone. I need that Clamp Champ so it seems I will deal with Matty, it's been a long time since I dealt with them.
