Mattel’s Holiday Tent Sale – 2012 Edition http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mattels-holiday-tent-sale-2012-edition/ Mon, 24 Dec 2012 17:35:39 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/main/?p=54314 You may recall last year I wrote about the annual Mattel HQ store tent sale over on AFHub.com:

Once a year at Mattel’s Headquarters in El Segundo, as part of their regular company store, they have their annual tent sale.  This sale typically runs from just after Halloween and runs until just before Christmas.   The sale is primarily made up of bulk overstock.  They used to do pop-up stores along with this in major cities like Dallas, Los Angeles and Chicago.  These would usually be in buildings where some other retail business had already closed and ran the whole month of December.  I believe that they have since stopped doing those pop-up stores.

Whatever items they put in this sale they always have a LOT of said item, like pallets full any given item.   At past sales there are always some oddities like Spanish language talking Elmos, unsold Star Trek Barbie and Kens, and various other kid’s toys.   However if you don’t like their selection that day, just wait a few days.  There are new shipments each day and it’s a revolving door of product.

Two weeks ago I headed back to the annual sale to see what they were offering for their 2012 sale.  Once again the pallets were back, and there was some collectors items, including two toys from MattyCollector.com.  The pictures are a bit blurry as they were taken hastily with a camera phone.

First thing I found was some WWE figures and a pallet of the black and white version of the Arkham City Batman and Catwoman 2-packs.

MatSale12WWEBat

MatSale12ArkCit1

Keeping with the WWE discovery was a whole pile of the Money in the Back ring sets.

MatSale12WWE

For those Imaginext fans – Here’s a WHOLE LOT of one of the Batman figures.

MatSale12Imagin

 There was a big bin of Cars stuff, color changers and the talking versions.

MatSale12cars

The two figures from Matty Collector were Ghostbusters II Slime Blaster Ray and the 12″ Superman the Movie Lex Luthor (not pictured).

MatSale12GB

 That was the collector bits that I saw two weeks ago.  I never had a chance to stop by again and see what they rotated into their sale, but this is a snapshot of that particular day.

Did anyone else go this year?   Did you see anything different than what I saw?

AFi’s “Ask Matty” Mattel Q&A Answers for December 15th, 2012 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/afis-ask-matty-mattel-qa-answers-for-december-15th-2012/ Fri, 14 Dec 2012 20:45:38 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/main/?p=54086 MattyAFiLogoTwice a month the gang from Mattel are kind enough to answer five questions from AFi readers.  The Mattel marketing and PR team, have replied with the answers to our latest round of questions that AFi readers have posted in our forums.  There will not be a posting of answers on January 1st as Mattel will still be closed during that time.

Here is our latest round of questions and their answers:

 

Q1.  The Batman Legacy figures and Batman Arkham City Legacy figures had different styles of card art even though they shipped together. Will the same be true for DC Comics Unlimited figures and the Injustice figures, shipping together but with different card art styles?

A1.  Our Packaging team loves creating special packaging art to celebrate themes within our product lines.  Our plan is to celebrate the Injustice game with unique packaging, just like we did for the Arkham City Legacy figures.

 

Q2.  How come you neglected your DCUC fans on your recent cyber monday flash sale? 8 flash figures went up throughout the day all 8 were MOTU related is that the only license you’re focusing on? Should fans of other licenses go somewhere else?

A2.  It was just a matter of not having inventory of any DC items. In no way was this a slight to the brand!

 

Q3.  What happened to the subscriber bonus for Ghostbusters?!?

A3.  It is a Glow in the Dark Slimer will ship out before the end of 2012 to all 2012 GB sub holders (whom had sub canceled).

 

Q4.  Why isn’t the retail line giving us easy fan demanded, team building A listers like light blue Superman, SP Wonder Woman, SP Batman, SA Bizarro, 70s Supergirl, Balent Catwoman, E-2 Robin(both looks), E-2 Superman, E-2 Wonder Woman, GA Scarecrow, ventriloquist & scarface, Hook Hand Aquaman etc instead of the Injustice video game figures and nu52 characters

A4.  Those are all great suggestions for characters!  There are so many characters from which to choose.  Hopefully some of your favorites will end up on shelf!

 

Q5.  Will the 6 inch Toy Story line continue in 2013? If so, will we see new characters? It was a nice surprise to get Slinky Dog in that line a few months ago when we hadn’t had a new character in 2 years.

A5.  While we are not ready to comment on 2013 plans, there will be significant newness to our basic figure line along with new characters and variants.  Stay tuned!

 

If you’d like to ask a question for the  January 15th submission then feel free to post your questions in our Mattel Q&A question submissions thread!   Remember they can be about any Mattel product including MOTUC, Ghostbusters, WWE, any of the Mattel DC lines, Voltron and Cars. Twice a month we draw our submission question directly from the ones that AFi readers post.

You can submit new questions in this thread.

And you can discuss the answers on our Mattel board.

Thanks again to the team at Mattel for taking time to answer our questions!

Mattel Clarifies Some Cyber-Monday Questions http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mattel-clarifies-some-cyber-monday-questions/ Mon, 26 Nov 2012 19:17:34 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/main/?p=53532 Mattel Reached out to us today to help get get the word out about some answers that Scott has been giving this morning about MattyCollector’s Cyber-Monday sale:

Hey gang, I clarified a little over on Matty.com’s forums but to reitterate some hot issues:

1: Due to an error, for a very limited time the CM discounts were being applied to Castle Grayskull preorders. We have corrected this and any orders placed this morning will be corrected to full price and those customers will be contacted and given option to cancel. No discouts apply to the Castle.

2: Selection is always best on the first day, prices often the best on the last day. Please keep this in mind. While we didn’t have as many sell outs over the weekend, your best bet for the best selection is on day 1 of the sale

3: We do have a very tiny amount of CastleGraykull Man for sub holders and those who bought on Nov 15th. If you bought him on Black Friday you are only able to get a refund. No replacements.

4: This is definately last call on all the 30th figures. (Photog through CGM). They will never be offered again.

5: Pretty much all of our stock will be up today. If a fig is not up it is “most likely” he or she is gone for good. Their could be some exceptions, but since fans have been asking who is “gone for good” this should help. Also, come 2013 we will have VERY few day of older figures. We are looking to start 2013 with low inventory to make way for all the awesomeness coming through next year. If you want any older figures, today’s sale will be one of your last chances (if not THE last) chance to get these figs. After that it is new figures and the few “evergreen” figs we still have left. These are also rapidly depleating.

Things can and do change, all prices, figures and availabilty subject to change (including everything noted above). But I wanted to advise on this in case anyone is on the fence on older figures, especially the 6 (now 5) 30th figures. If you want to add these awesome figs to your collection, head over to Mattycollector.com before 11:59 Pacific today

You can check out all the deals and bargains on Mattel’s Cyber-Monday sale here.

Toy Fans,

Black Friday is great, but why stop at just one day? This year we’re starting our Black Friday sale a little bit early and we’re extending it a little bit longer. Be here at 9:00 a.m. PT on Wednesday morning November 21st and we’ll have items from some of your favorite lines at savings up to 30% off! The sale continues for six days, ending at 9:00 a.m. PT on Tuesday morning, November 27th. And be sure you check in often on Monday November 26th because flash sales and special pricing will come and go* and you never know what you might find!

This may be your last chance to snag some essential 2012 figures you missed that very likely won’t be back again. It’s also a great time to pick up a few gifts for friends or family, or just treat yourself to something (especially since you’ve been so good all year). Want to know what will be on sale? Come back to MattyCollector.com on Wednesday morning 11/21! Although I can’t tell you now which products you’ll find, we’re sure the sale will be a roaring success and we’re doing our best to conjure up some great deals that do justice to all our great lines 😉

Remember, the sale starts Wednesday, November 21st at 9 a.m. PT (12 noon ET). Want an email reminder? Click here to register. Or, join me on Facebook, Twitter and in our Fan Forums and you’ll get reminders there, too.
