March is the ALL Sub-exclusive MotUC month! No Fangman for "day of" sale.

Post by DroothR on Wed Feb 13, 2013 8:26 am

Yep, Fangman is now the first "Monthly" figure to be subscriber exclusive, with none being made available to buy outside the sub on March's Matty Collector sale day.

Also, want Strobo? He's exclusive to Subscribers in the "Early Access" sale the day before the general Matty sale.

This doesn't affect me, as a subscriber I'm getting a Fangman, and have the opportunity to attempt buying Strobo. But I can see this really hurting the casual collector - or those that can only afford a few figures here and there - this year if it keeps up (and lets face it, it most likely will).

Speculation is heavy that it's a scare tactic to get people to sign up for the Filmation sub.

Yikes! Mattel finally abided by one of their statements. Too bad it was one of their crappier statements!

I'd better start saving my pennies for some of the later figures then, unless I can find a subscriber who is willing to part with them.

I don't mind missing out on Fang Man since I'm not interested in him at all, but it would be cruel and unusual punishment on the part of Mattel if there is no day of sales stock for Mantenna.

With the Strobo, are subscribers limited to the number that they can buy? I assume that as the subscriber for 6 subs in 2013 I would be limited to buying 6 of this dude?

I think once you are in to Early Access the usual 10 limit applies. But don't quote me on that....

has anyone here bought anything through it?

I think it's a 10 item limit. I'm not bothering with Strobo. Razz

Anyone know what time we need to set our alarms for the early access to nab a Strobo?
