This guy really thinks people are stupid... they found a whole bunch of stuff in the warehouse that they thought they sold out of??? Well then, just proves how disorganized your company really is then if you can't even keep accurate inventory.

I love the audacity of this huge toy company basically telling the customers to do all the leg work, from everything to sub awareness to being on the phone for hours trying to straighten out orders.

LOL! Call matty in mid January if you haven't received a shipping notification. CLASSIC!

Did he seriously just recommend buying another Windraider just so that you could use the stand for the Sky Sled?

For the most part, plugging Cyber Monday... to try and derail the pressing issue of peoples CG orders getting cancelled.

Makes sense. I still haven't gotten an email or anything charged for my Grayskull, but I'm thinking I'll just let it lapse and not have to worry about that purchase.

It was a little something like this:

"This is a great opportunity for you, the consumer, because *insert normal Toy Guru lies here*."

Every time this guy opens his mouth, it's just a stream of constant bullsh*t that pours out. He reminds me of my supervisor at work...

Do we know what will be available on Cyber Monday? Or is that not something they tell us about?

No, The brand manager LOVES to surprise the fans... but you can count on seeing items that were previously proclaimed as being "sold out".

last year I waited and waited for the longggg weekend to pass I had to stop perusing the site and drooling over the packaged deals.....I just hope Matty doesn't hold back too much on the deals on dudes and shipping.....it was a total crap-shoot on whether to bite or wait it out for what was going to come next from hour to hour.....I hope they put the Sky Sled up on the cyber sale other than just full price across the board.....& it really doesn't matter what the "man" tells us or sells us, its his sandbox, if its too full of cat-turds we have to decide whether we stay & play or gather our toys and debit cards & go home.....I'm not a complete-ist by any means but I count myself fortunate as a "cherry-picker" who came late to this motuc game & didn't have any subs at all.....I made out all right from last years sale & the trickle down effect from Big Lots, fellow board maniacs help & last weekends JC's Outlet sale that I got a healthy majority of what I wanted from this line......soooo I'll eat some free turkey this year ( no cooking this year yeahyuuhhhh) and kick back w/a few fooseball games and come Monday we'll see what sticks......I took the day off of work that day mostly, like Garfield I hate Mondays & even moreso after an Holiday weekend...the freaks & geeks tend to come in strong on those days....last year I had to make my purchases while clients, bosses, employees, life & jerk-faces did what seemed like their damndest to deter me from getting mah deals....

Aside for Strobo, there's really nothing that I'm interested in this year.

Except maybe more Horde Troopers...

I don't think the "store" opens till 9am wes west coast time.....so I would think they would be adding deals after that time for early access......I really hope we get a second crack at the Horde Troops.....if they pop up during early access I could use a set if someone wants to hook me up.....

Nothing but the BG Teela that I would get so far. The Wind Raider is still to much for my blood. $30 and I would bite.
