I don't care so much about the discount, though discounts are great. I just want the figures available. LOL.

I'm looking at the MOTUC and there are so many I need still....
Teela
Scareglow
Orko - Adam
Tri Klops
Zodac (original)
Randor
Whiplash
Webstor
Faceless
Vikor
Grizzlor
Syklone
Roboto
and a few others... LOL Where are they???

I was thinking about buying the JLU Convention packs, but with one already sold out, I guess I won't.

I'd like to get that Slimeblower Winston just so I can do a head swap, but not for basically full price and shipping. I wish Matty would just release a GB II dark jumpsuit Winston with the GB II head sculpt and be done with it. I think enough GB fans of the line (that haven't made this themselves already) would buy it, just to save the hassle of doing it themselves.

The new GB 12-Inch two packs would be interesting too, if they were actually discounted. Outside of the upcoming JLU stuff, which we know will be made in limited quantities, Matty has been their own worst enemy. From stuff being "Sold Out" when it really wasn't (how many of us would have purchased more items if stuff was still available so we could have bundled it with other items?), to having some very deep discounted sales of that "Sold Out" stuff (how many have decided that if it isn't a 'must have' item, then they can wait to see if it hows up at a nicer price down the road?).

This sale of $0.20 on some items is a waste unless something you wanted and missed pops back up. And after the Halloween sale, who is to say that these current prices won't drop more before the end of it? It does feel a lot like Kay Bee Toys, or when Target jacks the price up on a line that has been hanging on the pegs for 6 months or more.

There is a risk in waiting for the price to drop because the item could sell out before that happens. I guess it all depends on how much you value the item. In my opinion, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

I ordered Battle-Cat and Trap-Jaw. With what's in my pile of loot at BBTS, I think my MOTUC buying is pretty well done.

This is a great sale, I ordered He-Man and Battle Kat. Geesh unfortunately, my March 1st order status shows "order in process" still. I guess they are floating down the digital river direct from Eternia.

Well, I still haven't got around to picking up my convention packs. Apparently, in the News Section, there's a note in red (next to one of the packs) that reads: Temporarily sold out - more coming soon! I hope that goes for all the JLU packs... you know, since they NEVER sell out. Does anybody have more information on this?

I don't know anything about this but sure wish I did. Was waiting on these after the deep discounting much previous JLU received. Now I'm left wondering if I should try to trade off my STAS Aquaman for these packs. Can't believe what that guy is going for these days.

You know you're under a LOT of stress when you reply to your own posts... I was halfway through a reply, thinking what a coincidence it was that this guy needed the same figures as me, when I realized... It's me. :(

I really want the JLU Heatwave and Barry Allen pack, but I'm wondering if I should wait to see if the price drops further in the future.
