I swung by Matty's latest sale to see whether there was anything I needed, but I already have everything offered. Oh, well.

I noticed a few things have already sold out, including the JLU Angleman/Firestorm/Killer Frost set and the MOTUC Teela and Scareglow figures.

Here's the link to the sale page: http://www.mattycollector.com/store/mat ... .649228808

I picked up Hordak and some MOTUC stands. Neither of which I owned before now. With the price increases across the board, some of the sale prices bring them down to just pennies below what they originally were.

Despite being listed as one of the sale items, the JLU stands were listed as sold out before the sale began and don't even show up on the sale page. I hope this is an error that will be corrected.

Same with the retro action Superman and Batman. I was hoping to pick those up but they never appeared as available in the list. I keep checking periodically but nothing yet.


What's up with that, Matty?!

The figures not on sale still have their original price tag; so yeah... it's kinda weird watching them markup the price, only to put those items on sale for a net 20¢ decrease. Reminds me of a couple of "Big-box Stores" I've been to.

Anyways...

Was someone able to order the Firestorm/Killer-Frost/Angle-Man 3-pack? Did it really sell out? ...or was it rotated-out? ...lost in transit, maybe?

Hey, this is terrible!!! further the figures with 30% off all the other figures have a true discount of only .20 cents!!!

For example Mattel two months ago sold Demo-man for only $20 now increases the prices and do a special discount but we only are getting a real saving of .20 cents!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOD!!!! is this a bad joke??????

This mark up to mark down plan reminds of the late, great K-B Toys.

It reminds me of the Virgin Megastore after it announced it was going out of business.

Not everything is 30% off-- they just state that many items are up to 30% off-- If the He Man figs were 30 % off they would be 15.40 each..

Yes. I remember KayBee getting in new assortments of wrestling figures back in the day and although they hadn't ever been placed on the pegs before had price tags that read, "$5.99 3/$10"
