MOTUC Faker Update

by Jay Cochran
March 16, 2009
Mattel earlier today put their few remaining Masters of the Universe Classic Faker figures up for sale on their website This figure had originally been offered to fans at last months New York Comic Con and shortly after putting it online today, it sold out. In response to this Mattel has issued the following statement:

Well, even through we lowered the limit of Faker to 4 per person (the same limit as at NYCC) we still sold out of the Evil Robot of Skeletor in record time. While we are pleased he sold out so quick, we do share fan's pain that he was only available for a few hours.

To help with this, we have increased production of all figures going forward. Mer-Man may wind up coming in as two seperarte shipments (meaning even if we sell out on Day 1, we will get a second shipment in a few days later). And going forward we are increasing production across the board for all future MOTUC figures.

We will also look at brining back some of the early figures again once we judge sales on the reissues of He-Man and Skeletor this fall.

We do want to keep working with our fans to make this line the best it can be. We regret if fan's missed out on the chance to own a Faker, but remember, we do announce the on sale dates three months in advance. All figures go on sale at 12:00 noon on the 15th of the month (unless the 15th is a weekend, in which case it is the next Monday non holiday). So if you want him, you'll know when to log on to buy.

pre-order will be great for serious collectors. or a subscription is much better idea. if you subscribe to them you are guaranteed 1 figure. and when the figure becomes available you get an option to add 1 more.

You know a pre-order plan wouldn't be a bad idea, they could limit the pre-order

amount to 1 or 2 figures and then after the figure officially debuts they can allow

ones to buy an additional 8 or 9 figures, that way everyone can have a fair shot

at getting at least one.

See, that's the thing. You have got great friends and contacts who would sell it to you at reasonable cost or maybe even trade with you. And fact that you are from the US makes everything available for you at regular stores. Whereas I am from India and nothing, AND I MEAN NOTHING releases over he... Read More

Ah, great...another great figure I missed. That's, what, five now? Hmmm...what Mattel needs to do is set the limit at two, because, seriously who NEEDS four figures?!? You know darn well what at least two of the four figures folks are buyin' are gonna end up as...eBay fodder...yep, that's right. ... Read More

I just love this line! With all the interest its generating with people, its made it easier and cheaper for me to get the 200X figures I needed to finish that line!

I figure in 5 years, when nobody cares about these figures, I'll get them real cheap, too!
