    I gave in and picked up 2, and I picked up a Battlecat since I don't have them

    my fist impression on this sale is that scalpers were a little afraid that they weren't gonna be able to bleed peoples wallets and some of them refrained from buying up as much stock as possible....leaving enough for people that wanted these to collect...this is more realistic to what a sale should be like without scalpers...still sells out but in a reasonable amount of time to allow people to purchase it.....big difference from an item selling out in 45 seconds to 8 mins.....

    With Matty saying they wouldn't ship until the end of the month, I wasn't expecting to get charged until then. Now that I know what to expect, I can be more prepared for the next 3 months. It just caught me off guard was all. But everything is fixed now, so I'm good.

    We don't get charged until the items ship. We get pre-authorized the full amount, but that will drop off after 3-5 days on a credit card. Debit card I'm not sure about (it might actual look like a charge?) as I'd NEVER give Digital River access to my bank account money! lol

    Fantastic that Lion-O sold out so quick :) Hopefully this proves there is a market for the quotas Mattel had set :)

    Man!!!!!!!!!! It sold out so fast that when I hit pay it already send me an error for the check out... At least I got General Sundar from MOTU She-Ra. It looks awesome...

    I don't have a credit card, so debit was my only option. While the quick sellout is nice, you gotta wonder how much of that was scalpers.

    That doesn't really make much sense. In the 8 years Matty has been selling MOTUC the vast majority of toys have sold out relatively quick. And in all that time it has done nothing to improve the brand. It just proves that they were able to sell a small amount of toys to its fans through buying multiple subscriptions to support the line and scalpers hoping to make a little profit on EBay. So I doubt Lion-O having a quick sell out will make much difference.

    I bet eBay is gonna be flooded with Matty Lion-O's in the next few days :) All "CONFIRMED PRE-ORDERS" ;)

    I totally forgot about the sale - tho I was in two minds anyway. It's a long wait till February when I'm expecting my subs to arrive.
    Reviews are gonna have to tide me over til then.

    It already is! :D Shall I indulge and buy me a Lion-O?! Since I no longer want to wait for my sub to arrive at the end of the year.

    I'm surprised you didn't go for DHL shipping on a single ship sub? I bet it was close in price to International Post?

    I've just looked at my credit card and it seems as though Matty Collector have taken an authorisation for my liono figure so it seems to be in progress
    Anyone else have the same?
