Well I don't care who's responsible for pull the merch off the shelf, the fact is, its no longer available for sale!

 

& IT IS A RE-CALL!!! the fact that retailers are have a problem with the merch & not Mattel means nothing to me. Bottom line, MM are GONE! I'm not buying this "smoke & mirror" routine!

Actually it's saying MAttel is the one who has a problem and not the retailers. Also if you read other boards there are reports all over of these figures being back at the stores,also MM and DCUC are back for order at TRU.com.

I know why they were taken off shelves! *Excited expression*

 

I know I'm a new member an all, lol, but I have good information.

 

I called Mattel and asked why they were pulled off the shelves. She said the movie masters figures have a folate (sp?) small minute amount of lead in them. She said they are perfectly safe and meet USA standards, but that they don't mett mattel stadards. She also said I could keep them with no worries.

"Back for order" huh, ok are they in stock?? My guess is the answer is a resounding NO!

 

I still think its subterfuse. either the health risk is bigger than any one (Mattel or retailer) is letting on, OR, there's no health risk at all & this whole thing has been cooked up to turn "retail lead" in to gold!

 

If so, then some one needs to tell Mattel to KNOCK IT OFF & GIMME BACK MY TOYS!

How is this "gold" for Mattel? DCUC and MM were already selling well (if not selling out) so how does this benefit Mattel that they are getting bad publicity and less product on the shelf to sell? The only ones that may make money off of this is the scalpers on Ebay.

You don't think this translates in to SUPREME SALES for Mattel & retailer, ok. Tell you what. let me give you a metaphor.

 

"picture it, Ceisly 1942" oh wait, sorry I started channleing Estell Getty.

 

imagin if you will street racers. the way they build up their momentum b4 letting go of the clutch & brake. Mattel might be reving up.

Lead is supose to ##$%$# a childs mental development right. Well I feel like I should sue all the toy co. for not exposing me to more lead as a child.

 

when I took my I.Q. test as a child I was told I scored 138. I've been told that that's almost a genious. & let me be the 1st to tell you, almost everyone who has an I.Q. that high is doomed to have a sh*t life. Don't believe me, just read a history book.

 

Mozart, Vangue, all the greats that the TMTs are named after, ect ect. All these people lived & die tragic deaths. & then there's yours truly, who works a crap job as a target security officer (tell me that's not reason enough to kill your self).

 

SO YEAH!! I want to sue. if I was dumber I would have gone a lot more far in life. I would "fit in" & be normal like all the other lead infected childeren who all now have great jobs & families.

 

*stands up on chair like a Tyson chicken commericial* SO I SAY LETS HEAR IT FOR HIGH LEAD CONTENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thanks for the heads up. I let my friend know, since he's looking for some of the Thugs. We lucked out and both found a Joker when they first came out at walmart before the scalpers hit it.

Aahh, yeah guy we know they've been recalled. that's pretty much what the 1st two pages are about in this tread.

 

I too work for target & have the actual printed out email that went out to all the stores instructing them which items to "pull" from the shelves.

 

Or is this now an OFFICAL RECALL? Either way I wasn't about to hold my breath on getting 1st wave MM EVER AGAIN!

I work for a company called Hastings and we got a memo today stating we would not be getting them as planned for a upcoming add event, as they had been officially recalled from Mattel

Sorry. No need to get angry at me... I knew that MM were recalled after Draven's post. I was just asking if DCUC were recalled as well but I guess this was the wrong place. Sorry.

Honey don't pay my crazy ass no mind. you go on & say what ever your harts desire is. pooda's right, sometimes the Queen needs to be escorted to her chamber & put to bed LOL heheh.

 

In other words I just say what evers on my mind. But to adress your question, I don't know if DCUC has gone bye bye or not. I don't think so though.

 

didn't they just move the WW series up from wave 5 to wave 4?
