I thought it said 12:01 pt? Why can't they just make it a convenient time for me?

No, the sale starts at 0:01am on Friday morning US Pacific time, which equals 19:01 local Eastern Coast time.

Holy crap!

cyclops

Sale started 3 minutes early, no WSoD at all, and my order was done and confirmed by the official sale starting time.

Razz

Now - with the intentional exception of Tytus - I'll have EVERY core MotUC figure released!

Interesting...

There's a loophole in the ordering system on the Matty site that lets you determine how much stock of each item they have for sale.

As of 2 hours into the sale, here how it looked:
Adora: 2,101
Masters of the UniverseŽ Art Prints: 155
Battle Cat: 667
Beastman: 1,525
Bow: 404
Catra: 172
Clawful: 245
Faceless One: 782
Goddess: 2,140
Gygor: 5,764
King Grayskull: SOLD OUT
King Hssss: 555
Man-E-Faces: exactly 300
Megator: 1,898
Mo-Larr vs Skeletor: 8,327
Moss-Man: 2,566
Optikk: 174
Orko: SOLD OUT
Captain Glenn: 6
Palace Guards: 4,985
Scareglow: SOLD OUT
BA Skeletor: 325
Skeletor: 3,871
Teela: SOLD OUT
BG Teela: 897
Tytus: 4,673
Vikor: 429
Weapons Pak: Great Wars Assortment: SOLD OUT
Weapons Pak: Ultimate Battle Ground: 65
Weapons Rack: 2,994
Whiplash: SOLD OUT
Zodak: 431
(Credit Darkspecter)

That's right:
Mo-Larr vs Skeletor: 8,327
Shocked

Scored BG Teela, Vikor and Zodak! I'm pretty happy about that, especially the fact that the shipping for THREE (3) figures was only $5.00 more than the shipping for ONE (1) figure!

If Tytus and Megator get down to 50% or more before Monday, then I might weaken and grab those as well. And I remain hopeful that Tri-Klops will be a Mattel "surprise" addition at some point.

Lol. I'm surprised there's so many Palace Guards, particular as people army build the things. Betting if the prices drop further over the weekend, a lot of people will go nuts with those.

50% off the remaining stock of MOTUC Black Friday figures.

I was tempted to get Megator and Tytus, but the shipping was more than the cost of the two figures!

Bummer. I would have grabbed a Stratos for $10.00 if I'd seen it.

I don't understand the inconsistent pricing. Most figures are $10.00, yet Mer-Man is $18.00 and Webstor is $20.00?
