MOTUC Mer-Man: Second Chance Sale Today (SOLD OUT)
MOTU: Outsiders - 2009.04.29
Just a reminder that the second half of Mer-Man figures will be going on sale today over at mattycollector.com. This second half is the same as the first half but is being made available to buyers and collectors who couldn't get the figure the first time because of the figure selling out and because of technical issues with the website.

Let us know below in the comments section if you have any problems or a good experience this time around when ordering Mer-Man.

UPDATE: MER-MAN NOW SOLD OUT.

no doubt they were good at the time when there was a lack of figures, but for figure collectors like me the appeal just wasn't there.

Dude, Stactions were awesome. Its was the only he-man line to take figure scale into account. Clawful and Leech were huge! Of course, I don't pose/play with mine (not saying anything is wrong with that) so statues are fine with me.

in times like these, it makes sense for small retailers or 'fans' to buy to sell. Think about it. You buy one for 20 you sell for 80 (skeletor or he man) with the profit it pays to collect. Even a 10 dollars profit helps pay for towards the next figure.
