Last week we told you about how some of Mattel's Masters of the Universe Classics figures mysteriously showed up at a Wal-Mart store out in California near Mattel's distribution center. Well now Mattel's Scott Neitlich chimes in with an explanation of how this happened:
"Took us a few days to get to the bottom of this one. Bottom line is these items were not sold to WMT. They appear to be at only one single location and this WMT aquired them on the secondary market from a third party. Mattel did not set up this end cap or this promotion. There are no plans for MOTUC to be distributed at retail at this time. Maybe the toy aisle manager is a big MOTU fan. Not really sure, but this is not a Mattel program. That i can confirm."
So what do you think, sound like a plausible explanation to you and does it really matter?
