Surprisingly well, actually.

I thought it'd be a real cluster with both Sorceress and Fisto, but I got in and out in 5 minutes. :mrgreen:

It was about the same for me Shell. I just picked up Sorceress and Fisto. I thought briefly about Fearless Photog but he just looks really dumb in my opinion.

Not that there aren't any crazy looking Masters characters but I couldn't get past the silly camera head.

I passed on Photog as well and got Sorceress and Fisto. Pretty much just collecting the figures from the original line now. Both Sorc and Fisto almost gone.

WOW, went over to see what the hubbub was about and actually didn't see a WSOD. I didn't order anything, but I was tempted by Sorceress.

Anybody else surprised Fisto went before the Sorceress?

Perhaps they made more of her.

Those Voltron lions are tempting me. Those need to sell out before I lose 50 bucks.

TG said somewhere they were making more of Sorceress then any figure this year.

Man, that means just about everybody's gonna be gone in the first hour. Gonna be tough to catch all the ones I want.

I might have to rely on the secondary market for a few.

If the line keeps contracting like this, they better get Ram-man out sooner rather than later.

'Cause I'm beginning to think MOTUC's time is limited.

I'm glad I have the sub, because I completely forgot it was sale day. Damn. I wanted an extra Fisto too...

Looks like Sorceress is gone now, too.

Are Beast Man and Stratos limited, or will they be there all year?

Stratos and Beastman are limited but imo shouldn't be. As far as I know the only ones that are up all the time are He-man, Skeletor, Battle cat and Panthor.

I think there will be faster sellouts this year on some of the MOTUC for sure. The last under an hour sellout was Bow I think at 54 min. I'm sure it's a ploy to push the subscription and generate more of a buzz. Pretty smart imo.

Lots of classic characters this year and I'd expect fast sell outs on Kobra Khan, Stinkor and Spikor as well.

Pretty fast since all I wanted was Sorceress this time. Except for a 503 error, and subsequent server down page, ten minutes before the sale start, nothing major went down.

It took 2 minutes to get a Sorceress and even then only because I couldn't make out one of the word captures.

Got everything I wanted - which was nothing.

I'm really happy I didn't get into the MOTU line. I had enough frustration with the 2002 line and the JLU line and the current WWE line that I would not be able to bear any more. I guess if they're only online you know where to get them, but if they sell out you're screwed and scalpers vulture on in, and damn, that just sounds like hell.

But props to you guys who are keeping your collections going strong.
