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.

–Matty

You know......its lame this time of year.....on one hand I have 1/2 of ereryone's presents bought, ( I start early) but then I'm still buying stuff for my larger than half-life family and friends.....soooo I'm committed to spending for them, coupled w/feeding an small army for T-giving and then prolly have some cash for eating out or feeding that same small army on X-mas plus some charity goodness for lil baby J. And people ask me what I want for Xmas but its hard for my loved ones to understand how badly I want to catch up on some MOTU love. 1st of all, I was always the kid whose mother if & when she could afford toyz for us (yuck, mostly clothes for xmas) she would inevitably buy admiral Ackbar or the random guy in the background figure instead of Luke or Vader, or a technoviper instead of SnakeEyes ect ect.....my fam loves me but not my toy habit, they buy other things that I don't need or want like a purple sweater w/the a shiny Planet Jupiter on it, or diabetic socks or Starbucks gift Cards (I don't drink coffee). This sale couldn't go down in July or May? I know it would defeat the purpose of Dark Friday or Computer Monday, but my fam & my girl are not gonna troll Matty looking for what I'm missing, even if I get a list busted out by 8am tomorrow. So that means I may have to buy it myself and that's sux, cause it's not sposed to work like that. After plunking down some big bones for MP OPrime (O woe is me I know, world fattest violin being played for me haha) I really hope they take it easy on us on this sale. I heard last year they had some kool stuff up for grabs but shipping killed everybody. Soooo please Matty don't jerk us around and give us the d/l straight so I can buy toyz I prolly don't need, but still can appreciate.......I never really talked or written to that mysterious garbed man in red from wayyyy up north, but here it goes......Superman if you can hear me, I'll send you the lumps of coal if you can press them into diamonds for lil big me......Posted Image

Looks like the only thing new is the NYCC Temple of Darkness Sorceress® which came out in October but never sold online until now...

Here’s your chance to purchase the Temple of Darkness Sorceress® figure for $22! This special traveling figure has a new look that reflects her appearance in the vintage mini-comics featuring all white/silver deco and opening wings, and comes with the Zoar staff and a power orb holder. This figure is not included in any sub, and sold out at Power-Con. After NYCC the only opportunity to purchase this figure will be on MattyCollector.com. If you want this figure, make sure you head to the Mattel booth the minute you arrive at the show!

If I had known that Mattel would drop the price of figures to $15.40, I would have picked them all up today. I also never expected to see that many figures since we kept being told that they all sold out in the past year...

Im pissed and this might be the last straw with Matty. The TOD Soceress was suppose to be sold in DEC. Now I miss her because she gets but in this sale and I don't get the email till after the sale had started and she sold out.... PISSED!! I REALLY REALLY want her. :( And they wonder why people like me almost did not renew the sub next year. Probably done with this after next year. Just sick of it.

Was not here. That does not help me. They said she was Dec not Nov. Quite making smart excuses for them!! It was a poorly advertised sale. I got her thanks to a friend. And she is up again for those that got screwed missing her a bit ago. And by reading the boards there is quite a few feeling that way on her. The rest of the sale is awesome and I am glad some of you all are getting great deals.

I don't think he was sold out initially... Matty has been using this "buy before its gone forever" tactic for years... If we see Fisto people are going to be really pissed...

Didn't Man-E-Faces come out after Snout Spout? I thought he was the cutoff on figures that would see re-releases.

i nearly fall from the bed when i saw tod sorceress on the page. at first i didnt even looked at the page until i got a mail from matty to check it out. so i did and bam there she is. i had just little money left on my account. i added a snout spout but it didnt took my order then i removed him and the 2 tod sorceresses were a go. so relieved that i at least got her. its lame because a lot expected her in december. me included and i can understand if people are upset about it. sad i didnt had more cash because i need a zodac now that his second head comes with strobo.

its just leftover stock they mostly keep whenever they need to replace them. thats why they are available in a very limited stock.

That's what I figured, but I wonder if we'll see the leftover stock of figures like Stinkor and Kobra Khan.
