Not all fans can make time to catch a 24 hour window for a figure pre-order.

Any one can find less than 3 minutes in a 24-hour period to pre-order a figure. Unless you're in a cave with no working connection of any kind to the internet then you have no excuse. No one is completely occupied for an entire 24 hour period.

Not sure what you mean by randomness. There is a 48 hour window from September 28th to September 30th right?

This is a pretty niche line so fans I wanted will already know about it.

If people that don't really follow MOTI Origins online then they are more of the casual customers category.

Also limited time window means people were more likely purchase based on FOMO.

It's really simple business psychology

The randomness is one preorder is Grizzlor is about 24 hours for a pre-order and Wund-Dar is 48. 'Business Psychology' as you put it is a poor defense of their practice. Its Artificial scarcity and 'exclusives' that spell the eventual death of a line. If you lived through the 90's comic debacle you know what I mean. Its the same #$## Hasbro is pulling with their G.I. Joe line.

Not all fans can make time to catch a 24 hour window for a figure pre-order. It's bad business practice to not try to make as much money as possible, correct? Thats pretty much 101. Longer pre-order window means more money with no additional resources other than keeping an order page open a little longer. Mattel just sucks at this....sure, they make money, but they handicap themselves by feeding the scalper machine and limiting their fan base not to mention poor customer relations.

I just don't understand the random time limits on these pre-orders. Why not make them a week or two weeks? If its factory deadlines, fine...start the preorders 2 weeks before whatever actual deadline needed to place orders. 1 day for Grizzlor and 3 days for Wun-Dar. Artificial scarcity really aggravates me. I like Made to order stuff...Super7, despite major delays, does it quite well. Four Horsemen do it very well also. Just do it over more than a few days.

Limited quantities and then made to order, well it's not that bad if you don't get one the first day at least you can secure one the next day. However I don't understand why a figure that is part of a toyline which is selling at retail now and with supposedly good sales, should be offered in such a way, also Grizzlor is not a character you could call obscure among the MoTU roster.

The timeframes are weird but those in the know have their shot. That's a lot better than nothing

Don't you know those furry onesies are pricey to make, Mattel doesn't want extra stock. Plus they are dust catchers in the Mattel warehouse!
